"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

In the ward had conceived the idea that
Jt would be a good thing to have him

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 had decided

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
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
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
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
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

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

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
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
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
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

John D. O'Brien.
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.

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
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.

Hill property may eventually be profit
able, and it is possible that the prop

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.

chased In England a Dagnan-Bouveret for

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.

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.

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

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.
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
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.
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.

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
"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
"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."
