WILL CUTHISPAY IN TWO ariix.i: t. c. parker makes an OFFER TO THE CITY Announces His < :; ml i liac y for the Municipal Court Bench, and if Nominated Will Agree to Serve for s:J, ()()<», Returning: the Other $2,000 to the City Treasury. Theodore E. Parker, for years assist ant corporation attorney and one of the older lawyers of St. Paul, is a candidate for nomination on the Democratic tick et for judge of the municipal court. Judge Parker is a Democrat, was a Democnt before he served in the war, and, whon he was mustered out, he re mained the same. Judge Parker is one of the men who think? the city is pay ing too litfih salaries, and his announce ment contains a proposition of interest. Here it is: The law in relation to fixed salaries, as determined by the decisions of the courts of this country, is. if a person ls elected or appointed to an office, the salary of which is established at a certain sum, at the tim* of his election or appointment t!:er;<>. that salary cannot be changed dur liik his Incumbency therein. It was under that law our courts lately decided the cas» i.f A. E. Howe agains-t :he city of St. Paul, by which tho city has been made liable to pay upon demand about $10,000 as ar rearages due upon salaries that had been 6<u?led for and paid to the different officers of this city by virtue of an ordinance or resolution of the comm- n council fixing their respective salaries «it a le3s sum than that established by act of the legislature of this state. The only practicable and effective way for the overburdened tax payers of this city to reap any benefits at once in a reduction of salaries of officers «'|c cted or appointed to public salaried po sitions, the salary of which is excessive, as named in the law, is to nominate persona who will obligate themselves In writing to, upon and after being paid the monthly sal wry in full, as established, cover Into the city treasury whatever sum of money Ins been paid to him over and above tha ku:ii and amount he has agreed to do the work of hia office for. pursuant to his be ing nominated and elected thereto. After Bucfa .ifficer has received and receipted for the full amount of such monthly salary, as established by the legislature, and then covered Into the city treasury the excess thereof, as he has obligated himself to do, he cannot conio back upon the city for the refunded money any more than he could rail upon the city to make up to him the amount of rent paid for tiie dwelling house by him occupied, or the amount paid by such officer to the grocer who has support ed himself and family during the month tho officer was earning the salary received and receipted for. It is none of the city's business what the officer doea with his money after he becomes pos- I of it; he can cover It into ilty treasury, pursuant to his anti election obligation, or pay his house rent grocer's bill or any other debt he may hap pen to owe; Under that state of the law, I hereby an nounce myself as a candidate for the office of municipal judge of this city at the next city election, upon the following terms and conditions, viz.: If nominated and elected thereto, I will Immediately after receiving the monthly salary thereof aa now fixed and established, cover into the city treasury the full sum over and above tii.' sum nf $1GG.66, retained as the monthly under this promise and agreement; making, at that rate, the annual salary for said office the total sum of $2,001 Instead of (4.000. as it now is. - And I further obligate and bind myself ROBERT BROWNING OBSCURE. That Is Latchford'a Opinion of Elizabeth llnrrett's Mlrrnry Husband. Henry Latchford, M. A., of London, spoke Informally last evening- before a small select gathering at G:>j St. Peter street, on "P.x-ts I Have Met." Of Browning, who was one of the several poets and artists Mr. Latch fleld lias met and knowji intimately, he said that his tirrt impression was that Browning was about the best dressed man in London; that unlike Tennyson, who cultivated a careless ness ■><: dress. Browning was known to have sou a coat back to a tailor fifteen tin!, s because it did not suit him. He (.hough) Browning a man of society decid< d*y. He loved to talk with little <!:iMi li and was a favorite with wom en, old and young 1 . Mr. fjatchford paid, however, that v iih ali dv.- respect f>>r the intellect of this great man, he thought there was a great deal of mrnn?lfnc talked about his poetry, and that tho first duty of ;! ;■ : w: s to be an artist Browning v .is t! a oughly obscuie no matt, r what Hi'- <iiii(s might say. He trusted to the emotions and instincts and took p. rversc delight in flying in the face of reason. This was not sound doctrine. Mi- Latchford met Swinburne at a Bmota social along with half a dozen artists. Swinburne Fat with a brandy bottle before him, ard near him, talk ing with him, sat William Morris. The lattei was smoking a briarroot pipe. There were also some critics present, but Swinburne had the floor from 8 until 2:30 o'clock, and Mr. Latchford sui<l be had never heard such a tor renl <>f eloquence before. Such over ]>■ \\. ring knowledge of literature, from Homer to Alfred Austin, such insight, si cli power, such rTce, such energy.

The Ninth ward Democrats will hold a rally at Harbeck's hall. Rice and Ge ranium streets, tomorrow evening. It ls understood that the meeting will in dorse the candidacy of Edward L. Mur phy for ward alderman. A meeting, attended by fifty Hebrews from all parts of the city, was held Sunday afternoon at 27 East Seventh street for the purpose of forming an organization, which, as one of those interested said, "would educate the members as to their constitutional and political rights." Oscar Tankenoff presided, and a committee of five, with Building In spector Haas as chairman, was ap pointed to draft a constitution, and by laws. These will be submitted at an adjourned meeting to be held next Sun day, at which time permanent officers will be elected. The meeting of the board of flrp com missioners scheduled for this evening has been postponed until tomorrow evening. The three members of the board ia the city, Messrs. Arosin, Van ish and Walther, decided that in no other way could they show their pa triotism better than by not meeting on tho anniversary of the birth of the father of our country. President Arosin. seen last evening, said the statements made as to con ferences and caucuses regarding the changes in the officers of the depart ments were all rot, at least so far as he was concerned. He had attended nor had none. The evening organ has served notice on Mayor Doran, through an editorial published last night, that he must not reappoint Ernest L. Mabon as a mem ber of the board of public works. The threat is made that, if he doea, then the organ Is to be "agin" him for a renominatlon and re-election. The threat caused considerable talk about the city hall yesterday afternoon, and a number of those who stand close to his honor said the result would be that Mabon would be turned down. Mabon, when seen last evening, said he had nothing to say, and Mayor Do ran refused to talk on the subject. "It has been no secret," said one of the mayor's henchmen, "that Mabon. and Sandell were promised the pluma some time ago. The paper which now attempts to force the "hand of the may or has been opposed to Mabon 6lnce he refused to cast his vote for the selection of the publication aa city printer. The mayor is placed In a ticklish position In the matter, and, as he cannot afford to lose the backing of the paper in his fight for a renom inatlon, the only way out is to do as he had often done before, change his mind and name another man." said, a pale, forbidding-looking man. Mr. Latchford talked Interestingly of many others whom he had known and of whom he had that to tell which was of interest. His talk was forcible, most ir:tfrf stingr and entertaining:, and his language simple. COMMISSIONERS PAY A BILL After One of Them Han a Verbal Passage With the County Attorney. There was a lively spat between County C mn is-ione- Moritv; and Coun ty Attorney Anderson at the regular meeting- of the board of county commis sioners yesterday. The county attorney submitted a bill of $75 for the services of H. M. Temple as expert accountant in the trial of the Bickel and Stevens cases. Mr. Tem ple served five day?. Thp committee on claims refused to allow the bill because of a resolution passed by the board some time ago limiting the fees of ex pert witnesses to $10 a day. Mr. Anderson explained that the board had allowed him a contingent fee of $250 to be expended as he deemed proper. He had thought It quite prop er to allow Mr. Temple $75 for his work. Commissioner Moritz protested. It was establishing a bad precedent to al low an expert witness more than $10 a day as specified. The rate might go up to $25 a day. Mr. Andersor— At the time I paid Mr. Temple the S7F. T did not know that (he board had passed a resolution limit ing the per diem. Mr. Moritz — Well, Mr. Anderson, ig norance of the law excuses no man. Mr. Anderson retorted sharply that the board's resolution cut no figure anyway as to tho services of Mr. Tem ple, which did not come under the head of expert witness fees. Finally, the county commissioners al lowed the bill, Mr. Moritz alone voting in the negative. The case of County Surveyor Gates A. Johnson Jr. against the county hav ing been decided by the supreme court, a resolution was passed authorizing the county auditor to draw warrants for Mr. Johnson's salary for 'the months of December and January, amounting to $572 for each month. The board adopted a resolution au thorizing Chairman Doran and County Auditor Sullivan to execute and de liver to Clara M. Bazille, a special war ranty deed of the property adjoining Phalen park, which the preceding coun ty beard agreed to purchase, but which, so the supreme court has said, the county was rot obligated to buy. This action was taken inasmuch as the deed of the property executed and delivered by Mrs. Bazille to the county has been lost. County Commissioner Kellermann, who has been confined to his bed for seven weeks, attended yesterday' 3 meeting.

H. Dean, vice president and general manager of the Yellowstone Park associa tion, was in the city yesterday. Mr. Dean brought in a story on W. P. Howe, one of the hotel men at the Park. Last summer, so the story goes. Mr. Howe built a small conservatory directly over one of the hot springs, and during the summer and fall his little glass house was visited by many interested tourists. In the fall Mr. Howe left the park, and closed up his con servatory. A short time ago one of the cruisers who remain in the park during the winter vis ited Mr. Howe's flower house. The sight which met his eyes fairly took his breath away, for there, with the ther mometer below zero at an altitude of 7,500 feet, was a rank growth of cucumber vines, bearing thousands of cucumbers of all siz?a. The cruiser took a bushel or more of tho vegetables and sent them to Mr. Howe in St. PauL Mr. Howe distributed the cucumbers among his friends, and when asked where he got them, is said to have replied that they come from his South American farm.

PAUL GLOBE TUESDAY FEBRUARY 22, 1898. MAY PUT UP CITY TICKET CLERGYMEN OF ST. PAUL, HOLD ANOTHER MEETING Will Not Support the Notmlnees of Either I'u.rty Unless They Are Good Men Criticism of Mayor Koran's Administration Indulged In Saloons the Complaint. The clergymen of St Paul, through the movement which i 3 now being launched by them, expect to prove an important and new element In local politics during the next campaign. A second meeting of ministers was held yesterday morning in the parlors of the Central Presbyterian church, which was attended by fifty represent atives of the St. Paul clergy. The meeting was held behind closed doors. The session was breezy throughout, and there was a very liberal expres sion of opinion on the part of the gen tlemen present. The committee which was appointed at their last meeting made a lengthy report, and presented for the adoption of the meeting a set of resolutions, which will be made public in a few weeks, when a more definite plan of action is decided upon. It was the unanimous decision of the meeting that in case the candidates ad vanced for office by the several political parties this spring were not good m?n, they, as a body, would put an inde pendent ticket in the field. The launching of an independent tick et in the field would, however, be only as a last resort. They will try first to have the old parties put up good men for office, and in case this is not done, they would independently go Into the fight. It was also suggested that in case one party should put up a good man the other a man who could not be relied upon to enforce the law, it would be advisable and expedient to indorse the best man without regard to politi cal affiliations. On the other hand if both parties put COUNCIL TO HAVE A SAY ABOUT THE MAYOR'S APPOINT MENTS OF FIRE COMMISSIONERS Proposed Chapter Governing the Fire Ilnard Submitted to the Charter Commission Last M«ht— — No Action Taken Owing to the Lack of a Quorum. There were sub six members of the charter commission present at the meeting last evening, and aa this was two less than a quorum no business was transacted. Pierce Butler, as chairman of the committee on the chapter reflating to fire department, submitted a draft of the proposed chapter. It provides for a board of five commissioners to be appointed by the mayor on the second Tuesday in June after the new charter takes effect. The commissioners appointed then are to serve one, two, three, four and five years and each year thereafter one commissioner la to be appointed for a term of five years. Both branches of the council, by a majority vote of all the members, are to confirm the appointments of the commissioners made by the mayor, and in case the confirmation is refused, then the mayor is to make other appoint ments and report the same at the next meeting of the council. All contracts made by the board are to first be approved by the council by a two-thirds vote. The secretary of the board is to ba FINE NEW SHOE STORE. The \V. L. Uouklbsn Company Opens a House In St. Paul. One of the most attractive shoe stores In the city was opened last evening by the W. L. Douglass company, at 4-/S Wabasha street, corner of Seventh street. This is the only store that concern has in the Twin Cities, and situated as it is in the center of the trading dir-trict, the venture is expected to prove a success. The opening was supervised by Gen eral Manager T. L. Ellis, of New York, who was assisted by J. B. Botzet, who will have charge of the establishment, and from the opening hour until the closing of the store the place was crowded with buyers. The interior decorations of the store are in blue and white and the effect is very pleasing to the eye. The stock cases are in white and a neat white cash desk at the end of the store is in harmony with the rest of the estab lishment. A handsome rug covers the floor. Tho show window is calculated to at tract uersons to that corner. It is floored with yellow tiles and Is backed A\ith handsome mirrors and a papier mache boarding trimmed in white and gold. A row of electric lamps will illu minate the window at night. Manager Botzet will always carry a large and complete stock of men's shoes which will be of the same ptyles as are on the market in New York and other Eastern cities, and wiil keep abreast of the styles every season. The W. L. Douglass shoes are made for men only, and are manufactured at Brockton. Mass. The company now has fifty-two branches in operation in the principal cities as far west as Denver. This is the only store the company has in Min nesota, though others are projected. A branch will be opened in Kansas City this week and another in St. Louis next week. VQJJUCIPB MARRIAGES LUCKY. A W>s<t Side Couple Insists I'pon »he Probate Judge Viiitincr Them. Probate Judge Willrich is decidedly diffi dent when It comes to performing the mar riage ceremony; but he was waited upon yesterday by a couple who would not take no for an answer. Ernest A. Moeller and Susan Grunewald, both residents of the West side, were the contracting parties. Mr. Moelier is a book keeper for C. R. Groff & Co. At first Judge Willrich was disposed to recommend the couple to some other magis trate who might perform the marriage cere mony with greater aplomb ar.d less inter nal trepidation. But. Mr. Moeller wouldn't hear of such a thing, and his prospective bride waß equally insistent. When Judge Willrich asked why it was that they wanted him to marry them, they said they knew a couple on the West side whom the judge had married two years ago, and the marriage had turned out so well that they had decided that the judge must unite them, too. "So they were married." Minnie Gruen wa!d. a sister of the bride, and Henry J. Hadlich, a friend of the groom, witnessed the ceremony. ORANGES ARE PLENTIFUL. They Are Likewise of Especially Fine and Choice Quality. Oranges are being received in St. Paul in large quantities these days. They are of an exceptionally fine quality. "St. Paul Is one of the best orange mar kets in the Northwest," said a local com mission man yesterday, "and this year we are receiving large consignments of very choice fruit." The prices are a little be low the prevailing quotations last year, and may possibly go lower. "Aa viewed from St. Paul, tho California orange crop has been handled more expedi tiously this year than ever before. We can figure an having the fruit here in a certain length of time without fall. Tho regularity of the shipments probably has something to do with the decline Id price over last year." up good men they would, as a body, remain neutral, and each clergyman could choose for himself in the matter. This was the substance of the reso lutions presented, but the contents of the resolutions presented by the com mittee will Bet forth clearly the posi tion of the local clergy on the subject. There was not the, same restraint at the meeting yesterday as was evidenced at the meeting a week ago in the Y. M. C. A. roomg. The. ministers did not fight shy of the policy of the present administration. At the former meeting not one word was said derogative of the policy of the present administra tion. Yesterday, however, the reverend gentlemen warmed to their subject and were loud Jn their denunciation of the present wide open policy of the ad ministration. Rev. W. K. t Marshall, presiding el der of the St. Paul diocese of the Meth ndist church, presided over the meet ing. iJ -• The concert hull and wine room ques tion also came' up, and it was evident that the Olympic and other resorts of like nature in w the city would be the objects of the most aggressive attack. Incidentally the police department was touched up. It was generally understood that the leaders of the movement would attempt to do nothing under the present ad ministration, but would bend all their pfforts to secure the election of vir tuous men to office. It was alleged that all the saloons were allowed to keep open all day Sunday, and that nearly every saloon was keeping open an hour or so later at night than the law said they should. One prominent clergyman, who has j been Identified with the Christian Cit izenship league for some time, stated that there had not been much of a change for the better since the advent of the new administration. It was difficult to know just where to find Mayor Doran. They never knew what to expect from him. The meeting adjourned to meet again next week. At future meetings of the clergy the matter will be considered more fully than was admlssable yes terday, and their exact position on the mayoralty question will be made pub lic in a few weeks. elected and to serve at the pleasure of the board. Every alternate year the commission ers are to elect a chief and three as sistant chiefs for a term of two yearn. A superintendent of fire alarm tele graph is also to be elected, and pro vision is made for five assistants In this department, two linemen and three operators. All employes of the department are at the pleasure of the board so far as their discharge is concerned, thirty days' notice only being necessary. A. H. Lindeke, chairman of the com mittee having in charge the chapter relating to the water department, sub mitted an amendment to the report made at the last meeting in relation to the frontage tax. The amendment was as follows: "In addition to all other powers con ferred upon said board, they are au thorized to and shall assess upon each and every lot In the city, In front of which water pipes are or hereafter may be laid, an annual tax or assessment of ten cents per lineal front foot of the frontage of such lot or lots, and which shall be a lien upon such lot or lots and shall be collected as hereinafter provided. But no property shall be subjected to such tax or assessment after ten such annual taxes or assess ments have been levied against it, In cluding those which may have hereto fore been so levied." President Horn requested John D. O'Brien, who acted as temporary secre tary, to notify the absentees of the next meeting and an adjournment was taken to Wednesday evening. Those present last evening were Messrs. Horn, O'Brien, Butler, Llndeke, Alness and Krlegef. "Yes, we are receiving large consignments of the boxed Oregon apple. We are selling lots of these this year, because of the high prices of Southern apples. The Oregon apple might be considered a fancy stock, but they are rapidly coming into favor." . WILL VISIT THE^RISON. Chamber of Commerce Accepts an Invitation From Warden Wolfer. The chamber of commerce will to morrow visit the prison at Stillwater on invitation of Warden Wolfer. The affirmative vote was taken at the meeting of the chamber yesterday morning. Transportation will be fur nished by the Omaha road, and the party will start on the regular train at 12 o'clock noon. Dinner will be serv ed at 1 o'clock/ and an inspection of the prison will follow. An urgent request was made by Pres ident Noyes that there should be a large delegation. Not that he wants to send them to prison, but only that an opportunity may be afforded them to see how a prison, is conducted. Of course each visitor will determine for himself how he would like it as a place of temporary sojourn. Complimentary remarks applicable to Warden Wolfer were made by H. H.- Hart, in the dis cussion of the acceptance of the invita tion. s : There was a dearth of new business S for consideration by the chamber. In i regard to local street railway matters, I A. H. Lindeke, from the committee on transportation, announced that a con ference was pending between that body and Mr. Lowry. A letter was read from Congressman Lorin Fletcher on the subject of mone tary legislation by congress, in which he expressed a hopeful view that some favorable action would be taken before adjournment, although there were a number of Republicans in favor of a do-nothing policy. FELL DOWN AN ELEVATOR. Employe of the Gernianla Life Building Gets a Bad Fall This Morning:. Louis Lv.tzman, an employe of the Germania L#ife building, was injured at ?.r early hour this morning, by falling down an open elevator shaft. He was badly bruised and cut and sustained in addition internal 'injuries, the exact ex tent of which could not be ascertained at the first examination. Lutzman's injuries were attended by Dr. Dohm and the injured man was removed to his home on the upper levy. HAD A GOOD TIME. Woniaii's Auxiliary No. i£O, Sons of Veterans, Given a Masquerade. An enjoyable masquerade ball was given at Central hall, Sixth and Seventh streets, last evening by the Weman's Auxiliary No. £0, Sons of Veterans. The ball was largely attended, and the' preUrly costumed maskers assembled for the opening march presented an attractive scene. Ftilly 150 couples were in attendance. i Representatives* of all nations, as well as clowns, imps and grotesque characters, were among the dancers. Garbed in the elegant or fantastical apparel appropriate to the character, the merry maskers, with the grace ful movements of the dances ever changing the scene, presented a l: series of animated kaleidoscopic pictures as entertaining to the spectators gathered about the hall as to the participants in the gay whirl. The spirit of the bal masque prevailed throughout the evening. Gayety was the sole order of things, and when the mandolin orchestra had played the last number, every one voted the entertain ment a thorough success. The committee of arrangements comprised Miss Stella Swank, Mrs. E. Walter. Mrs. J. Hadock. Mrs. F. Lavine, Mrs. M. Main. Miss Ida Lightner. L. K. Lyon and E. F. Walker.

MOZART CLUB CARNIVAL MASKERS HAVE A MERRY TIME AT MOZART HALL AH Nationalities Represented, and Many Beautiful Costumes Dis played A Highly Picturesque Procession Theo. ilamra Mas querades as Kins Gambrtnns. The carnival masquerade at Mozart hall last night, given by the Mozart club, proved to be one of the finest and most picturesque affairs of its kind in the history of St. Paul. The programme was an extremely at tractive one. A special stage had been erected for the Danz orchestra of twenty-five pieces, in a corner at the right of the regular stage. From this point the orchestra during the interval between the opening of the programme and the raising of the curtain, discoursed the following excellent musical programme: "Lohengrin March," Wagner; selec tion from "Cavalleria Rusticana," Mas cagni; waltz, "Mem Ideal," Yon Blon; selection from "Bohemian Girl," Balfe; waltz, "Wein Weib und Gesang," Strauss; "Overture to Tannhauser," Wagner. After this programme had been in terpreted the curtain was raised and the following spectacle was presented: Introduction of the Prince and Princess of the carnival, P. V. Larson, as the prince and Miss Aurelia Danz, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Danz Jr., as the princess. This was a very pleasant surprise to all, as It was ex pected that Andrew Heckler, aa he did during the last ice carnival, would ap pear at the final moment as princess. After the introduction of the prince and princess of the carnival, various other groups followed, representing dif ferent nations. The first was a group of Polish barons, impersonated by L. Arbogast, William Conradl, H. Haas, L. Maenner, William Hllbert and L. Halbert. Napoleon followed with two mar shalls, impersonated by Gustavo Wolff and Henry Bueger and John ThllL The next was a band of Zulus, repre sented by Max Hazenbaoh, Adam Heck, Joseph Prendergast, M. Arbo gast, William Merz and H. Werner. "Singers of the Wachtsburg Wolfsgang from Eschenbach," or the "Melster slnger," constituted the next group. It comprised Louis Betz, Frank Wer ner and Charles Bloeser. Diana and her nymphs then appear ed. Mrs, Joseph Borchet Impersonated Diana, and the Misses Walther and B. Yeager and Mrs. Emlle Treager and Mrs. Laura Rank were the nymphs. Fritz Schneider and Mrs. P. J. Giesen. followed as the fairy prince and prin cess. Dante, or Santonello, was Imperson ated by Miss Ida Theobald. This character was followed by a group of ar.gela represented by Misses Kerst, Emma and Olga Hllbert, Wick, Men ecke, Gustaveus Voedlsch, Mrs. Adolph (Jle&en and Mrs. George Rank. Hugo Drlese, as St. Peter, preceded Andrew Heckler, who In the garb of a monk, kept close to the heels of St. Peter. The most Interesting group was a collection of American Indians and Squaws, who were presented by the Goddess of Liberty with the American colors as they appeared on the stage. The noble red men and their wives were represented by John Prendergast, August Miller, John Giesen, Misses A, Art, Jennie Murphy, Mrs. Willlem Couradi, Mrs. John Giesen, Mrs. H. E. Drlese and Mrs. Joe Giesen. As each aggregation appeared on tho stage the orchestra played a national air of the country represented, and the representatives of the various nation alities then descended to the floor from the stage and made a circle of the hall. After this came the grand march, headed by the prince and princess of the carnival. During the march four especially In teresting figures were noticeable. They were Miss Olga Hilbert, a blackbird; Miss Emma Hilbert, a butterfly; Paul Drlnkovitz as the czar of Russia, and Anna Doyle, as a newsboy. The crowning event of the evening was a magnificent myramid formed on the stage by all nations, with the God dess of Liberty as the central figure. The picture was received with ap plause, while the orchestra played "America." The Goddess of Liberty was imper sonated l<y Miss Giralda Voldisch. One of the surprises of the evening was revealed when the company un masked at 10:30. A portly gentleman who had worn the visage of King Gambr-inus proved to be none other thn Theo. Hamm. The carnival of the Mozart club will be long remembered by all those who had the pleasure of participating in and witnessing it. It was the success it deserved to be.

HONOR A HERO'S BIRTH CONGREGATIONAL CLUB COMMEM ORATES THE ANNIVERSARY Dr. David N. Beach, of Minneapolis, and Z. S. Ilolbroolc, of Chicago, Deliver Addre»e« The Latter Makes Some Pointed Reference* to Spain, WTiich Are Applauded. Washington's birthday was fittingly commemorated last evening by the Minnesota Congregational club, which met In the People's church. St Paul, and listened to patrlotio addresses by Rev. Dr. David N. Beach, of Minne apolis, and Z. S. Holbrook. the Chicago sociologist The church was crowtfed with mem bers of the club and ladies who sat down to a banquet shortly before 7 o'clock. When the hour for speeches arrived, the president of the club, Rev. Dr. Samuel G. Smith, made a few remarks touching upon the day and the occa sion, and introduced Rev. Dr. Beach, whose subject was "The Religious Mes sage of the Nation." Dr. Beach traced the development of religious and church purity from the earliest times and the modifications of the earlier teachings made by the Epis copal and other Protestant denomina tions. He showed how the religious movement had been steadily toward tolerance and the adaptation of the church life to the necessities of men and the gradual unfolding and evolu tion of religious ideas. The revivals at the beginning of the century, the remarkable awakening in IS4O, the wave of religion which swept over the country during the Civil war, and the present extension and devel opment of the mission field were all considered by the speaker as signifi cant of the growth of the religious spirit in this country as well aa in other lands. The application of religious principles and impulse to practical life was illus trated, Dr. Beach said, in the careers and works of Jonathan Edwards, Hor ace Bushnell, Henry Ward Beecher and Philips Brooks and other great leaders of religious thought, whose message to mankind have a peculiarly American stamp. Dr. Beach closed his adaress with an examination of the organic life of the religious movements and the teachers of religious life In the history of the American nation. The other address was that which was delivered by Z. S. Holbrook, who followed Dr. Beach. Mr. Holbrook U sociological editor of the Bibliotheca Sacra, and his speech on "The Political Message of the Nation" was expected to be scholarly and patriotic. Nor were his hearers disappointed. Mr. Holbrook paid an eloquent tribute to Washington and his g:eat successors in the presidency, Jefferson and Lin coln, and laid stress upon the debt which all good Americans owe to their country and their government. He finally touched upon present events. "I care not," he said, "whether Spain blew up the Maine; I care not whether De Lome spoke the truth or not; diplo macy that Is not based upon honesty is treacherous and tricky and hollow and any nation that adopts Machiavel lian ethics will end aa Spain is ending, bankrupt in government, finances and morals. We may have occasion to cure that nation of its bad propensities. If we have to jteach that nation a lesson we want to do It not with blood thirsty revenge, but thoroughly — we want to do it well." This sentiment was greeted with ap plause. Mr. Holbrook spoke of the struggle between liberty and authority, and said there was a battle on between the senti mental school in political economy and that of Adam Smith. "A Chicago professor," continued Mr. Holbrook, "said recently that he could not convert a man today because he had to convert him to a wrong system. Is it right to say there Is nothing to convert a man to? Yet these are the men who teach us. They are like the Eastern reformers who have buttons which they press and make Jesus Christ dance on the other end of the line. We say confidence Is fading ,^sj^<jjr about the house.

"it is' the first duty of every C ■ : nallst to teach the fundamental principles of right to Ms children. I have nothing against tho higher criticism, if it will not touch my religion." Mr. Holbrook said that St. Paul and Minneapolis were generaly admitted to stand nearer to New England thought and principles than any other two cities in the country, in Chicago, he said all men were scrambling after the dol lars, and he told of a People's church which was recently started there with a saloonkeeper as minister. "He stepped." said Mr. H.>ibrook "from the street, which he had Just made blue with profanity, Into the pub pit and preached a sermon that u;is a beauty." Mr. Holbrook closed with the hope that the new century would usher In an. era of peace and g-ood will to men. Among those pivsent at the meeting were: Harlan P. Roberts. Rev. Charlea 1.. Mears. Rev.
