Yietory or Encounter a Defeat Jolin.s.i'n Out of It. "That gallant warhorse, Col. A. R. Kiefer.'' as he was called by Assem blyman Johnson, was indorsed for mayor at a meeting of Eighth ward Republicans last evening. The indorsement was not as hearty es it might have been, because the secretary who counted noses on the Indorsement resolution found that, while there were thirty-four in favor, tl.ci- were four against it. The slim attendance was explained by F. J. Eubank and A. N. Barringer as being the result of work done in the last two days by those opposed to the candidacy of Col. Kiefer. Men promi nent in the affairs of tbe city, it was etated, had requested, urged and co erced precinct committeemen and Re publicans to stay away from the meet ing, and. sad to relate, their efforts had been partly successful. S. B. Carter, chairman of the ward committee, who presided, said that the Impression had gone abroad that ihe meeting was called to crowd the candi dacy of W. R. Johnson for mayor on the people. This was not correct. This was Mr. Johnson's cue. He got en his feet and related how his f-iends In the ward had conceived the idea that Jt would be a good thing to have him 6s a candidate for mayor. He consid ered it an honor to even be mentioned for the office, and concluded to allow the boys to go ahead, with the idea that it "would bring the Republicans of the ward together.

He wanted it distinctly understood that he was not a candidate for mayor. It was time, however, that the Republi cans of the Eighth ward indorse some candidate as their standard bearer. He mentioned the names of Feldhauser, Donahower and Bigelow as being prom inently mentioned for the position, and last, but not least, "that gallant war horse, Col. Kiefer." I-oud applause greeted the mention of Col. Kiefef's name, and Louis Nor mandin was on his feet in an instant to formally nominate Col. Kiefer for mayor. Chairman Carter said the meet ing was a Republican one, and only persons who affiliated with the party were entitled to speak. This was resented by Mr. Normandln, w-ho said he had been a Republican since 1891. but. as calls had been made for Charles J. Berryhill, the Seventh ward "spellbinder," Mr. Xormandin subsided for the time being. Mr. Berryhill said it wou'd be a ca- | lamity to have the Democrats again secure control of the cify. The Demo cratic party, he was glad to say, was divided, and this meant Republican success. The sentiment ln the Seventh ward was that any man nominated by the Republicans would be elected. The people of the Seventh ward, however, were for an honest and decent govern ment. Mr. Normandin again secured the floor, and, after being instructed that he would be limited to ten minutes, de clared that, if Col. Kiefer was nomi nated, he would carry the city by 6,000 majority. Frank Bering thought it unwise that twenty-four out of sixty precinct com mitteemen should get together and in dorse any one for mayor. Other wards should be heard from first, especially Col. Kiefer's own ward. There was some question as to which ward Col. Kiefer claimed as his home. The question wasn't settled. Chairman Carter said the idea had been promulgated that Col. Kiefer would not accept the nomination. He would say that a committee had called on Mr. Kiefer and had been informed that, if the Eighth ward indorsed him, he would be a candidate. A. N. Barringer favored Col. Kiefer being indorsed. The ward had always been too slow, and that was the reason it always came out at the tail end. Harvey L. Mills Jr. was of the opin ion the action was too previous. He feared it might hurt Mr. Kiefer's in terests and also prevent the ward from insisting on W. R. Johnson getting a place near the head of the ticket. Fac tions in the ward might be raised by such action. Later, the indorsement might be the correct thing. A rising vote was taken on the mo tion of Mr. Eubank to indorse Col. Kiefer and then the meeting ad journed. The name of Mayor Doran was not once mentioned during the evening, but just as the motion to adjourn was made some proposed three cheers for "Mayor" Griffin. GUILMANT TESTS THE ORGAN. Work Preparatory to Hi» Perform ance at the People'H Church. Had any passer-by sauntered Into the Peo ple's church yesterday afternoon, which he might have done without cost, for there was no "man on the door," and no audience but empty chairs within, he would have beheld a white-haired old gentleman seated at the big pipe organ. If his curiosity prompted him to linger a moment the passer-by would have seen the white-haired old gentleman bend forward and would have hoard a single note from the or gan, and then another and so on up tho scale. Then the passer-by might have left the church without waiting to hear mor?. But if he had tarried a moment longer and heard tho magnificent outburst of music that resounded throughout the capacious audito rium, he would have put off his business en gagements for tho next hour. Guilmant was practicing. The members of the People's church and the music-loving people of St. Paul have never comprehended the possibilities of the great organ, that they have heard so many times. They have heard that it contained 3 SOO pipes, but they have never listened to the wealth of music they can make at the bid ding of a master. They will be astonished when they visit tho church tonight to see and hear the man who is concedrd to be the great est organist in tho world. A picturesque, patriarchal figure ls Guil mant. though he is scarcely of medium height. His flowing white hair almost reaches his shoulders. His face is adorned with a gray beard and moustache. Ho has blue eyes and a complexion inclined to be swarthy. He spoke nothing but French to Prof. Oberhoffer who accompanied him to the church and turned his music at the organ. Guilmant played the "Berceuse," by Sa lome. It was noticeable that he seldom manip ulated the stops of the organ. Yet such a swelling volume of tone, such rare sweetness such effects of distance, such extreme deli cacy were never suspected, even of this or gan. The first peal of harmony that responded as Guilmant placed his hands upon the keys proclaimed a genius. No such sounds ever came from it be fore. GOTHAM WANTS A PAIR.

RUIN OF EIGHTY ACEES SO PIERCE BUTLER DECLARES A RAILROAD THROUGH COMO PARK Charter Commission Again Defers Action ofn the Proposed Internr han Line Via Lake Como— City Departments Are Given Some Dis cussion With Better Resnlts. The charter commission did not make much progress at its session last night. During the first half hour the mat ters considered were expeditiously dis posed of, but the members became in volved in another discussion, mostly informal, over the proposition to al low the St. Paul City Railway com pany to extend its line through Como park, and on this question they could not agree, and for a third time it was laid over. At the opening of the meeting, Mr. Murray moved that chapters 9, 15, 19 and 23 be eliminated from discussion on the part of the commission, as they do not belong to the charter. Chapter -9 deals with the municipal court; chap ter 15 prescribes the methods of as sessment of property for general taxa tion; chapter 19 covers the almshouse, and chapter 23 prescribes the powers and duties of justices of the peace and constables. J. D. O'Brien, referring to chapter 9 on the municipal court, thought it would be safer to incorporate this chapter in the charter than it would be to omit it. The entire matter was finally refer red to a special committee comnrising Messrs. Lusk, Clough and O'Brien, whose duty it will be to consider the advisability of eliminating from the charter the chapters mentioned. By vote of the commisision Chairman Horn was added to the committee. Before proceeding with the regular order of business the commission ex tended the courtesy of the floor to Building Inspector Haas. Mr. Haas desired to express his views regarding the proposition to consolidate the building inspector's office with that of the city engineer. Mr. Haas opposed the plan, mainly upon the ground that the city engineer is not an architect and ought not therefore to have charge of the inspec tion of buildings. The commission then considered chapter 11, which governs the erection and inspection of buildings. The prin cipal change wss made in section 46 of the existing code. The present section make s irrevocable an ordinance creat ine- the office of building inspector, the evident design being to perpetuate that office. The proviso was therefore stricken out. The chapter was recom mitted. Mr. Mc-Nair, chairman of the com mittee appointed to draft the chapter on schools, reported that the commit tee recommended a re-enactment of the present chapter, as it is a special law and cannot be amended. Mr. McNair called attention to the fact that the existing law does not provide the means of raising a sufficient revenue to maintain the schools, but added that the committee on finance would rec ommend in its report that the charter commission insert a provision in tho new charter giving the common coun cil the power to appropriate toward-' the maintenance of the schools a sum of money in addition to the revenue already provided for by the existing charter. Col. Clough, chairman of the com mittee on parks, then submitted for consideration an amendment to section 15 of the chapter on parks. This sec tion, which is new. was adopted at the meeting of two weeks ago. but re considered and recommitted at a sub seciuent meeting. As adopted lt read: "No form of any street railway shall be authorized to be constructed or operated through any public park of the city." The section was adopted as the re sult of a protracted discussion, between the members of the commission and President Wheelock. of the park board, of the proposed arrangement whereby the St. Paul City Railway company would be permitted to extend its line through Como park. Col. Clough moved that the section be so amended that permission might be granted allowing the street rail way company to extend its line through Como park for a period of ten year? by a vote of four-fifths of the mpni bers of the park board, a four-fifths vote cf the common council and the approval of the mayor. As again slightly amended by Mr. Dean, the section proposed by the com mittee read: Except as in this section provided no street railway shall hereafter be authorlzeJ to be constructed or operated through any public park of the city. Upon such teinis and conditions a.- shall be approved by the affirmative vote of four-fifths of the members of the beard of park commissioners, and an ordinance adopted by an affirmative vote of four fifths of the members of the common coun cil and approved by the mayor, pcrmis^iDn nay be given for a period of ten vcars from the date of the mayor's ai>provai for the extension through Como park of' the existing line of street raihvav now termi nating in said park: that such extension shall be located southerly frcm the sec tion line between sections" 22 and 27 town 29 north, range 23 west. A general discussion followed, which developed strenuous opposition on the It is robbery to charge such high prices, when choice Meats, Butter and Eggs eau be sold at prices much lower than some of you have been paying.

Mr. did not hesitate to say that If such a provision were adopted, it would have an influential effect upon the people at the next convention. He was confident that they would dis approve .of it. To permit street cars to run through Como park along the route proposed would mean the prac tical destruction for park purposes of eighty acres of the park lying south of the proposed street car tracks. It would impair the beauty and utility of Como park, and that the people would never tolerate, as they were es pecially fond of this park. Mr. O'Brien said that he quite agreed with the views cf Mr. Butler, and be lieved it would be most injudicious to adopt the section. Judge Lusk, CoL Clough, Secretary Innis and Mr. Dean, on the other hand, did not think that the proposed exten sion of the street railway line would injure the park. Judge Lusk said that he was at first very strongly opposed to the entrance 'into the park of any street railway line, but having since thoroughly investigated the matter, he was satisfied that there was no ground for such objection to the particular route proposed in Como park only. Judge Lusk thought it would prove a benefit in this case, principally be cause of increasing the means of ac cess to the picnic grounds. After some further informal talk and the consul tation of a city map. the matter, on motion of Mr. Innis, was laid over for one week. The commission then adjourned un til next Monday evenirg, when Mr. Butler will submit the chapter govern ing the fire department. The absentees last night were Messrs. Clark, Lightner, Fetter and Lindeke. NEW LIFE IN DESERTED TOWN. Ciralile's Money In Twenty-Fonr 11.-nis Turns. Galena Into n Bustling Metropolis. CHICAGO, Feb. 4.— The Tribune's Sioux Falls special says: The funds which Grable attracted to the West bad a magic effect ln the upbuilding of new industries. The town of Galena, which had been dead for a dozen years, suddenly sprang into life again. Houses that had been empty for years were filled with people. Half a dozen stores were opened in a day, and three hotels and four saloons began business between sunrise and sunset. V>*here a few hours before there were less than twenty-five persons, by nightfall there were sev eral hundred men, women and chil dren. Francis C. Grable wa; the fairy who had wrought the change. For eighteen months he has been spending from $10,000 to $20,000 a month there, and people wondered where the money came from, as the property could not possibly pay any considerable amount. Once in a while a carload of East ern capitalists would arrive in Dead wood and would be wined and dined by Grable. They were then driven to the property and plans for smelters and stamp mills were discussed, and more money was advanced. It is believed by many that the Union Hill property may eventually be profit able, and it is possible that the prop erty at Edgemont may be worth some thing. STEWART PICTURES SOLD. _.ij_.li Prices Paid, for tlie Gems of the Collector . NEW YORK, Feb. 4.— Society and Bohemia rubbed elbows at Chickering hall last night, when the famous William H. Stewart col lection of paintings were offered for sale. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney were among the most eager members of the throng, and Mr. Whitney distinguished himself by buying what proved to be the most expensive pic ture at the sale. He paid $12,000 for Fcr tuny's canvas, "Court of Justice. Alhambra." There was a full representation of the picture collectors of this city. C. P. Hunt ington sat in one corner. Near him was 11. C. Frick, who is reported to have just pur chased In England a Dagnan-Bouveret for £H-ii.G<K) for presentation to the Carnegie art museum of Pittsburg. George Gould was a_n interested spectator. The results were satisfactory as a whole. Seventy pictures were sold, and the total of the sales was a little more than $133. 0C0. As the pictures which have the greatest value were kept for the concluding sale, the total promises well. Madrazo, the artist, purchased Baudry's "Wave and the Pearl," one of the choicest nudes ever painted — a modern canvas that has been ranked with some things of Coreg gio—for $8,000. MILLIONAIRE SHOEMAKER SUED. Dnsi.Hii- s to tlie Amount of $150,000 Asked by a Woman. CHICAGO. Feb. 4.— A suit for $150:000 against John B. Hannan, the millionaire shoe manufacturer of Brooklyn, in which the plaintiff is a woman, has begun in the su perior court in this city. The suit was be gun Wednesday, but was suppressed in or der that service might be had on the de fendant, who lives in Brooklyn. The attorney for Mrs. Dutton said that the suit of his client grows out of occurrences which happened before Mr. Hannan's meet ing with Mrs. Thompson, against whom the manufacturer began suit about two weeks ego, at Newport. R. 1., for the re-eovery of about $150,000 worth of real estate and jewel ry which he had given her. The suit was compromised just before Mr. Hannan's visit to Chicago. Mrs. Dutton's attorney refused to say w-hat the relations were between his client and the defendant. RHODE ISLAND FAILURE. A Locomotive Works With Total Liabilities of 5|.G10,703.

The young people of both sexes who make up the Laurel Cycle club played hosts last night at the Ryan, and their popularity as such was fully attested by the fact that most of the 300 invi tations sent out for the dance, which marked the second year of the club'a existence, were accepted. The big dining room was cleared for them, and at 9 o'clock the St. Anthony Hill orchestra struck up the opening waltz. There was no attempt made at decoration. That wasn't necessary ap parently, for, with excellent music, a well waxed floor and plenty of room, the hundred or more couples danced through the card of waltzes and two steps and schottiches, with a square dance interpolated every now and then, just for variety. The affair, which included a large number of young people, was quite successful and was managed by Messrs. C. O. Martin, W. J. Prender gast, E. S. Weden and Wolfred Nel son, comprising the executive commit tee, while the reception committee con sisted of F. E. Low, Mary McDiarmid, E. L. Weden, Minnie L. Thauwald, R. G.

Great \ bundii nee of Salmon From the Colnmbla Hirer to the Vukoii, From the Denver Republican. "The waters of Alaska, both oceanic and inland, have a food supply equal to the demands of a continent," said H. C. Deming, of Vancouver. "Nobody who has not actually seen the teeming life in these waters can believe the truth. In Bering sea there are fishing banks where cod and menhaden are caught in numbers that put the New foundland banks away Into the shade. The herring runs are enormous. I have seen the peculiar ripple caused by her ring shoals extending over the surface of the sea as far as the eye could reach, and fishermen tell me they are actually Increasing, notwithstanding the terri ble slaughter by seals and a blacktish which not only eats fish, but catches seals, and when wounded will attack an ocean steamer. "But it ls the salmon runs that ex cite the greatest wonder. These fish go up the rivers in the spring and early summer to spawn, and sometimes ln the shallower parts of a stream are so thick that they actually climb over each other, and the Indians and others secure all they want with clubs and pitchforks. When they encounter a perpendicular fall they leap to an as tonishing height and millions are killed by falling back to the water and rocks. Only the strongest succeed in reaching the highest points on the streams, and they are generally so battered up that when they are caught on their return they are not considered fit for food by the while residents of the coast. I have seen the banks of the Skagit and Snoqualmie, Washington streams, piled up two feet high with dead salmon that are hauled away In immense numbers to enrich the farm lands, and yet there is apparently no diminution ln the vast numbers that come from their winter home in the deep sea each season. Some idea of the wonderful extent of the sal mon fisheries may be obtained from the fact that the salmon runs extend from the Columbia to the Yukon, including a coast line of more than 2,000 miles. "The strange creatures of the se.» that are generally found in tropical waters are also found here. I have se«_ an octopus with arms fifteen feet long caught in Seattle harbor, and sea anemones, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, starfish, moonfish, dogfish and shaiks are to be found everywhere in the greatest abundance. Rock cod, Bet* bass, ling and other game fish of the sea are very plentiful, and clams are so abundant that every saloon has clam bouillon on tap free to every comer. The Northern Pacific and Bering sea are wonderful storehouses. GIRL'S DEVOTED SACRIFICE. Overwork on Ihe S<nj_re Ends for n. Time Her Bright Career. On a cot ln Bellevue hospital. New York, Ilea Miss Alice R( ado, a young actress, who was taken from tho Academy of Music, after the performance of "The White Heather" tho other night, suffering nervous pros tration. It was the love she bore her parents and the feverish anxiety she had for their the other night, suffering from nervous pros comfort that brought her there. A few weeVs ago hor father, a Boston man, suf fered financial reverses, and in order to earn her own living and assist her parents Alice secured a position with the "White Heather" company. She was assigned to a minor part, ln which sho did well, and. having been assigned as understudy to Miss Amelia Bingham, who plays the part of Lady May Taylor, she devoted herself earnestly to her study and rehearsals. Several days ago she became ill from overwork, but pluckily kept on. The night came when she was unex pectedly called upon to take Miss Bingham's place, and she did it with eagerness, acquit ting herself creditably and to the satisfac tion of the audience. A few moments after the curtain was rung down Miss Reade fell ln a faint in the wings. Her face was burn ing hot. and those who gathered around her became so alarmed that the young woman was removed to the emergency ward of Belle vue. As she was being taken out like a limp bundle of clothes she found strength to cry out, "Mother! Mother! Oh. I must work for mother. I must. I must!" And then she fell back, too weak to utter another sound. No one of her stage associates knew any thng of her. She was always reserved and immediately after her work was over she went quickly to the house ln which she boarded. Dr. Lee, of Bellevue, says that she must remain for a day or two until her nerves, which are twanging like the strings of a harp under the fingers of a player, have become stilled and she is able to begin the struggle over again. A DUTIFUL SPOUSE. From the Detroit Free Press. The gait with which he strode into the campaign committee room was a very leis urely one, says the Detroit Free Press. He took plenty of time to regain his breath be fore he began: "I hear as how your party doesn't expect to do much next election." "Who told you that?" inquired the clerk. "A lot of folks." "Well, it's a slander. The prospects of a glorious victory for our long struggle for j the right were never more brilliant thai; they are at present." "You don't say so!" He looked thought- j fully at the chandelier for a few minutes, ! and then exclaimed with a sigh: "Well, I reckon I might as well be goin'.'' ] "Was that all you wanted to find out?" I "Yes. That's all. If I had known pros- pects were so terrible bright with you T wouldn't of bothered to make the trip " ' * What are your ■.olltles'"' „J£_?- * iua !- move along in'lependent-like. \otln sometimes one way, sometimes tha other and oftentimes not at all." "What did you come here for?" "To please my wife. I tell ye, hone_t I'd do most anything fur that "woman. Shea r.v.. y , Smart - U ' 8 al «a>'s a wonder to mo to think that a woman as smart as she is didn t be more careful about how she mar ried. "She married you, didn't tfhe?" said tho clerk in a Bomewhat puzzled tone. "Yes. But I'm one of those calm, fair minded people that doesn't flatter theirselvea Everybody told her that when she mar i she was gettin' one of the la/tost men In the state; but she wouldn't believe It. I'd of warned her myself, only I didn't realize then how lazy 1 was. This mornln' she out to where I was settin' under the grape arbor an' asked me why I didn't do thin. I asked her what she wanted me to do, an' she says 'Anything at all so long as it's something.' So 1 put out an' come up here." "I don't see that we have any work for you." "No, but sometimes when a party's chances ls pretty bad, therp i.s some offices that they can't git nobody to run for, 'cause there ain't no chance of wlnnln'. An' I thought mebbe If you had some o' them layin' around loose, ye might let me go ahead an' run for one jes' for the sake of savin' I'm doin' somethln' an' satisfyin' my wife."
