PAYS HIS FINE AND COSTS.
Private Slolir Decline* to 'IVst the
( ociMt it utioi.nlit y of tlie New
Military ('.ide.
Private F. C. Stobr. of Battery A,
R-ho was recently convicted by a court
martial <>f absenting himself from drill
from September, 1897, until December.
and sentenced to pay a iir.e of $10 and
*'ir. costs, paid the $25 yesterday. This
action was a surprise all around, as
It was expected that Stohr would re
fuse to pay the fine, be committed to
the county jail for twelve days in lieu
thereof and th< n apply for a writ of
habeas corpus, in order to test the
constitutionality of the new military
code adopted by the last legislature.
William Louis Kelly Jr., who acted
us counsel for Private Stohr on the
trial, said ypsterday:
"I notice in an evening papar that
my ex-client has paid the fine of $10
together with the costs of $15, which
wore attempted to be assessed against
him by the court martial lately con
vened in hi? case. If he has. which I
doubt, it looks to me as if Stohr is out
$25 for no good reason. What I be
lieve has transpired is that Stohr has
agreed to drop thr- proceedings to test
the validity of the law in consideration
of receiving a discharge from the bat
tery. I believe this fur several reasons,
nnd especially as 1 am in receipt of a
letter from Mr. Stohr in which he
says: 'I would kindly notify you that
an agreement is made in favor of me.'
In his li-t t r he states nothing about
having paid a cent. I further know
that the adjutant g-neral sent a note
P> Maj. Libbey regarding Stohr's case
and that the major transmitted the
note to his adjutant, Capt. Lambert,
nnd then ii seems Lambert and Stohr
did th.- rest.
"If the officers of the national guard
il. sir.- to have the validity of the mili
tary code tested. I can afford them
ample opportunity, as I have three
other clients who are In the same pre
dicament as Stohr was. and I know
that they cannot be persuaded to
weaken."

LOCAL PURE FOOD SHOW
EXHIBITION OF GOODS OF ST. PAUL
MANUFACTURERS
The l.ii'llfs, the Commercial Cinb
and the Manufacturers Thein
hclvi'm to Uuite in a Presentation
ot tlie Local Products— Outline
of the Undertaking.
Preliminary arrangements are being
made by the officers of the St. Paul
Manufacturers' union for an exhibition
of home-factoried food products, to be
held In St. Paul March 1 to March 12.
With the co-operation of the Com
mercial club, and the lady patronesses,
whose names are herewith given, great
success is anticipated.
St. Paul manufactured goods have
attracted attention abroad, and it has
been found that they command a ready
market wherever they have been in
troduced.
In giving the exhibition, the local
manufacturers of food products pro
pose to better acquaint the housewives
of St. Paul with the high srade of puri
ty of the products of home industry by
practical demonstration and test.
Much of the staple and fancy food
products found on the -helves of the
St. Paul grocery trade is of foreign
manufacture, in fact nearly all the
fancy goods are made in the East\
There has not been the desired de
mand for the products of home indus
try in St. Paul, although St. Paul man
ufactured goods are marketed all over
the country.
Storekeepers fail in most cases to
keep St. Paul made goods, because th ■
demand is not sufficient to warrant
their purchase, and it is to educate the
local public into giving preference to St.
Paul goods, over the much advertised
foreign article, as well to proclaim their
merits peneraHy, thut the officers of
the Northwestern Manofactur, rs' union
are now bending their efforts in ar
ranging for the exhiliition.
C. J. Whellams, the secretary of the
organization, has been working towards
this end, for a number of weeks, and
has secured the co-operation of the
commercial bodies of the city, and the
society ladies, who will have* charge of
the dally programme during the exhibi
tion.
Each afternoon a different pro
giarnme will be given and a number

2,540; 1897, 5.078.
The bulletin then discusses the vari
ous institutions in some detail substan
tially as follows:
At the St. Peter hospital the new din
ing rooms are nearing completion, as is
the improved plumbing of the institu
tion.
There have been no special changes
in the Rochester hospital, except that
the new electric lighting plant has been
completed. For several years the
Rochester hospital has been the only
state institution that did not have elec
tric lighting.
Among the practical industries of the
hospital is the soap manufacturing
plant, which affords employment to a
number of inmates and effects a large
.avlng to the Institution.
At the Fergus Falls state hospital
there has been a steady growth in the
population. The number of patients at
the close of each fiscal year has been
as follows: 1890, 80; 1891, 120; 1892 245
--1593, 352; 1894, 532; 1595, 725; 1896, 783;
1897, 984. With the completion of the
new wing, the capacity of the hospital
will be about 1,100. The new dining
hall accommodates 800 patients and :s a
handsome and convenient room.
There has been a marked reduction in
the per capita expense of maintaining
the state soldiers' home. The expense
for the year ending July 31, 1896, was
.218; July 31, 1897, $204. The expense for
fcod for each person fed for the year
ending July 31. 1895, was 17.1 cents;
July 31. 1896, 14.8 cents.
The school for the deaf is maintain
ing its rank as one of the leading
schools of the country. The facilities
of the school in the departments of
articulation and lip reading are in
creased. The superintendent has wise-
THE ST. PAUL GLOBE THURSDAY FEBRUARY 10, 1898.
of special attractions are being ar
ranged. The exhibition will be open
to the public, and no admission fee will
be charged.
There Is a strong probability that a
number of talks will tie given upon
pure food every day, although that part
of the programme is in the hands of
the ladies and has not yet been defi
nitely decided.
The officers of the union wish it dis
tinctly understood that the exhibition
which they propose to give is not given
under the same auspices as the Minne
apolis exhibition, which closed several
days ago. Nothing but home-factoried
goods will be exhibited, and the entire
affair will be In the interest of home
Industry, and to more firmly establish
St. Paul as a manufacturing center.
One of the features of the show, and
one which is expected to promote a
healthy competition among the local
industries, ls the awarding of certifi
cates to the exhibitors entering tha
purest exhibit in each class. This will
attract the very choicest of local prod
ucts. The result will be arrived at' by a
practical test "oy competent Judges in
hte pure food business.
All the firms now represented In the
union will make exhibits, and new ones
are expected to take part as well.
The exhibits will consist for the most
part of demonstrating booths, where
the choicest ambrosia and substantial
pabulum will be served to all free of
charge.
The following is the list of lady pat
ronesses who will contribute to the suc
cess of the exhibition:

The state public school continues to
be seriously overcrowded. The normal
capacity of the school is about 200 The

due in part to the increasing number
of crippled and deformed children for
whom it is difficult, if not impossible,
to secure homes, and who consequently
remain in the school. When the new

the diminution of the number of ln
?„n t<? o T h< - num,,p r Sept. 30. 1895, was

Dast year. This diminution, has been
due largely to the efficient work of th
state agency.
The new blacksmith shops will soon
bo opened, whon systematic instruction
In iron work will be organized.
At the state reformatory a. healthy
tone of feeling among the officers and
inmates is apparent. Most of the in
mates are employed either on lhe
farm domestic labor of the institution
or the erection of the new cell wing'
which is under cover and will nmb.ib'v
be ready for use before the fall of 183*
At. the state prison the binder twine
industry has been so thoroughly man
aged as to make it a source of revenue
to the state, while at the same time
twine is furnished at very low rates to
the farmers.

work in collaboration with the debat
ing society entertainment committer
and most of the plays will be given
to furnish diversion at the regular de
bates.
The members have made the organi

the more red tape there is about a
school society the less work there i<*
done. The number of members is lim
ited; there is no constitution, the only
officers are a president and a combined

committee of three will select plays
and bear the work of producing them
The officers elected yesterday were-
Halstead Moody, president; Harry

of Chicago; Harold P. Dyer, Charles F.
Smith. of Boston, and Arthur G. Wedge.
Following the ceremony Mr. and Mrs.

appointed.

board, and, having done so, was in
formed that it would be impossible for
the board to consider the name of Mr.
Norman for chief clerk.
Mayor Doran, it was explained, had
suggested the name of Charles H.
Bronson for the position of chief clerk
when the term of the present incum
bent expired, and. under the circum
stances, the board desired to act on the
suggestion of the chief executive.
One of the delegation advanced the
Idea that perhaps Mr. Norman could
be given the position of assistant clerk
now held by Bronson, in case he was
promoted to the chief clerkship.
This the board thought hardly pos
sible, as the mayor had suggested
James W. Smith, a son of Rev. S. G.
Smith, for the vacancy caused by the
promotion of Bronson.
The delegation was, however, ad
vised that things might be straightened
out and Mr. Norman squeezed in by
seeing the mayor.
The delegation passed the mayor up.
continued and resulted In the election
of L. G. Almen. of Ballinton, as vice
president, and the re-election of A. E.
Erickson as secretary. The election
of the executive committee was post
poned until near the close of the con
ference.
The general church discussion was
taken up and continued until the close
of the afternoon meeting at 5:30.
Last night Rev. C. O. Olander, of
South Stillwater, read a paper on mis
sions and the opening and organizing
of the same. A general discussion ot
the subjects mentioned therein follow
ed, in which many of the delegates
participated. The general opinion at
the close seemed to favor a mere con
servative method in the starting of
new missions and that the "material
and plenty of lt" should be there he
fore a new mission was opened at any
point or place. After the clo-se of the
general discussion, Key. E. Beckman
delivered a prayer and the exercises
closed.
The programme for today is business
meeting from 9 to 12; 2 p. m.. sermon
by Rev. A. J. Ryden. of Buffalo, Minn.,

Christ and be found in Him."

of the young and how shall we care
for the children?"

Manitoba, is a prominent delegaic
present. There are delegates present

A 1.. Crocker, of the Minneapolis
board of trade, spoke yesterday
-Ktly about whal he terms a rnovcm nt
which threatens the life and prosperity
of the entire Northwest. He s iys it ia
enginei red by Buffalo and N- vv York
elevators and the Erie canal with the
view of obstructing and making more
expensive the outlel by way of thi
great lakes. He .says these institution..
for local and personal advantage
to be attempting to se tl up the E tsti rr
cutlet dt the great lakes system with
an utter disn gard of tin- damai
would indict on the vast Northwest
He quotes from the Del r ril Ti
which says:
"A gentleman familiar with ili
line int. rests of the great laki
with matters in Washington as well,
said to the Tribune yesterdaj that a
lot of people represi nt ii Inter
ests in Buffalo and m other parts of
New York state are hustHr ■
stall the reporl I th deep waterways
ci mmission as to the beet wav o
i tiring an all-water route to tl;
from the great laki s and to get the
rational government irrevocably com
mitted to the improvement of the Erie
canal.
" 'H is feared," said he. 'that the com
mission will favi r a (hep canal channel
that will permit lake steamers lo go to
New Tork city without breaking bulk
at Buffalo. Tonawanda or .some point
on the Niagara river will be the termi
nus of such a waterway and not Buf
falo."
"Maj. Symons, in command of tho
government engineers of the Buffalo
district advocates the expenditure of
$20,000,000 in dei pening the Erie canal,
making it large enough to accommo
date a barge of much largi r capacity
than the present type of canal boat,
Imt still too small for use on th • lakes.
Buffalo will th.-n still remain thi
for the transfer of grain from lake tc
canal. That is wind. Buffalo is aftei
exactly."
An article nci ntly appeared in thi
Ch veJand Leader from the pen of tin
distinguished marine architect, Josepl
It. Oldham, from which Mr. Crockei
tak.s brief extracts, as follows:
"Maj. Syroone o-verl bility
