There was a meeting last evening at
the chamber of commerce rooms of peo- j
pie who are Interested in the proposi
tion made? to get early and dependable !
personal information as to the St. Paul !
soldiers who have gone to the front — j
, the fortunes of the Thirteenth regiment
being particularly in the view of the
people attending the meeting.
There were about sixty ladies and j
gentlemen present, and almost every i
member of the assemblage had some!
d. ar one among the St. Paul volunteers
and was especially anxious to know of '
bia welfare. It had been proposed j
that an arrangement be made to the |
effect that dispatches be transmitted j
from the Philippines at stated periods, '
which might bring satisfaction anl ;
quietude to the minds of those who I
■were speculating on the condition of!
their loved ones.
C. D. O'Brien, who gave two boys to i
the cause that is likely to be adjuui- j
cated on the field of battle, was made |
the chairman of the meeting, and L. i
A. Moore, who has a paternal interest
in what happens to one member of the '
Thirteenth, was elected secretary.
It was shown in the course of a few j
remarks of some of the gentlemen that
no dt-finite idea had been conceived as ,
to how the desired end might b? at- i
tamed." The people at the meeting were j
inclined to pin their Taith to the news- i
papers, but some of those present had !
.rot read the specials to The Globe!
fi the camn. and others had only I
reau the fake reports fri m the yellow !
journals of the. East, printed in a loca! I
paper.
Conde Hamlin explained to the meet
ing what he thought might be done in j
a newspaper way to cover the required
news. He had the most sincere interest j
In the meeting:, and would like to do I
What he could to meet the wishes of .
thr people present and those who were I
interested in the fortunes of the St. i
Paul soldiers.
Thomas Cochran said that a friend j
of his at Duluth had received a letter !
from his boy who was with the troops I
at Chickamausra to the effect that the
soldiers were utterly neprlected, and
Uutt food that ivas given to them was
not eatable. "If." said Mr. Cochran,
"our boys are being treated in the .
same way, we ought to know it, and
perhaps we could repair the faults that i
exist in the commissary by exerting
some sort of influence at Washington.
Chairman O'Brien said that such an
association as was contemplated here i
mieht go even further than the mere!'
receiving of news. He had been in- :
formed that such news as might come
by cable would be very expensive. :
A previous speaker had said that ten ;
words would erst $24 if fent at the :
commercial rate, and something ought '
to be done to meet such expense. "If
this te to be a war of conquest," said '
Mr. O'Brien, "and our troops are to
occupy the Philippines, then the boys .
that went from Minnesota would not ■
be obliged to face the dangers of that
climate merely as members of an army
of occupation. My boys did not enlis"t
for the purpose of living in barracks.
They are willing to fight for their
country- and enlisted for that purpose,
but they did not join the regular army
for the purpose . ; ' ! vjpp- In i o n -F.r'io,
"If the war should terminate peace- I
fully after we have occupied the Phil- i '
ippines. there would be no argument I
in favor of our boys staying there, and !
such an organization as may be formed j
here might have the power to secure j
their return."
A gxayed-halred lady in the rear of j
the room inquired if the volunteers j
had not gone into the service for the
full term of three years.
Mr. O'Brien explained that the enlist
ment had been for two years or during '
the war. "If," said Mr. O'Brien, "the i
war ceases in that period, their term :
of service ceases, but the thing to be ;
done is to see to it that they are not !
left there to serve out the full term. [
This organization can do much toward I
that end."
Mr. Cochran, at the suggestion of the
chairman, moved that a committee of
five be appointed to take the necessary
steps to a formal organization. Mr.
O'Brien said that as things stood the
meeting was not in a position to do
anything, lacking organization. The
• members of the committee on perma
nent organization were named by the I
people in the meeting and the commit
tee as named stood as follows: Dr. Park
Ritchie being obliged to decline to
serve on account of his prospective ab
sence from the city:
L. A. Moore, Thomas Cochran, Con
de Hamlin, P. H. Mead, and Maj J
B. Espy.
The naming of the committee was I
followed by a good deal of talk as to !
what means the committee should take j
to secure the Information from the field i
that was required and that would deal '■
■with St. Paul volunteers. Some one !
suggested that it would be as well to
take in the entire state, or at least Min
neapolis.
Conde Hamlin explained the trouble
that the Pioneer Press had had in deal- J
ing with a Minneapolis source of in- j
formation. Mr. Hamlin said that the
Pioneer Press had made an arrange-

ment to have a Minneapolis newspaper
correspondent, who^went with the Thir
teenth, supply news to his paper.
"We have had the news about the
boys," said Mr. Hamlin, "but it has
been about Minneapolis boys. That is
all right, but we ought to have the
news through this association that will
tell of fhe St. Paul boys."
Maj. Espy thought" {hat some ar
rangement could be made for the print
ing of all the news- about the boys in.
a paper devoted to the 'purpose, arid
told how he had been present at the
capture of Springfield, Mo., during the
Civil war and how his regiment had
captured a printing office and for sev
eral weeks had printed the personal
news of the regiment.
There was a great deal of desultory
talk along this line, and some discus
sion as to what could be done through
;he public press to secure personal
news of the men. The sole desire of
the meeting was to be put In posses
sion of some method to be in touch
with the personnel of the regiments at
the front.
W. B. Hennessy explained the diffi
culty that must be met in securing ac
curate infermation fiom men who Were
not disciplined in the transmission of
news while it was news, and the ef
forts that The Globe had made in
this direction. S^id he:
"The Globe has a man with the
Thirteenth regiment who is a special
staff correspondent, and who is in
structed to pay attention particularly
to sutih personal news as will have a
lively personal interest for St. Paul
people. Mr. Evan M. Jo:ies, the staff
correspondent, is with the regiment
solely for the purpes? of securing the
news for The Globe that will di
rectly interest the people of St. Paul.
Pis training will indicate to him what
that news is, and will teach him to
get that port of news here as s-oon as
possible. If a man in the regiment is
Pick, or if anything happens to him
out of the oid nary routine, the news
will reach the readers with that
promptitude that characterizes the re
porter in getting the news to the office
as expedltlously as ross'.ble.
"A instinct effort was made, which
haf been very successful so fir, to get
the boys interested in telling about
themselves. In each company of the
regiment two volunteers wfre chosen
because of their p aboll3 proflci ncy,
who promised to send reports two or
three times a week of what was going
on in their re pective cmfai-es. They
were furnished with the necessary
equipment for the newspapsr corre
spondent, and ere so classified. Every
day some of them seid matter by mail,
and up to date their service has been
so thorough that the reader of their
matter is practically on g ssipy terms
with the details of camp life. These
correspondents will furnish ample re
ports by mail of what is going on
whether they are on board ship or at
the Philippines.
"Mr. Hamlin has toll of the difficulty
Of getting rews through a Minneapo is
fouic, and the organization must not
overlook the difficulty of establishing
any sort of systematic news service
that will be personal. ->
It wss fin tlly a.-.roed that n thing
could be done until there was some
Fort of organization form d, and it was
provided that the committee for the
purpose of eompHtiriT the organization
should report next Wednesday evening
at the chamber of co v nvrOi roo us.
There w.ll be a meet ng of the com
mittee on organization at the office of
Conde Hamlin Friday aft3rnoon at 2
o'clock, ar<l those who are interested in
the organfzat'on and have sugge : tion.s
to make are invited to be present at
that time or to communicate with the
members.

OLD ISM i:s OBLITERATED.
The Sectional Lines Blotted Out in i
the Ilousi-.
WASHINGTON, June I.— Today's ses- j
! sion of the house was given to the eon
j sideration and passage of a bill called
up by Mr. Jenkins (Rep., Wis.) to re
move all political disabilities incurred !
j by the third section of the fourteenth ■
amendment to the constitution.
The debate gave rise to notable I
speeches from Mr. Grosvenor (Ren ■
O.) and Mr. Settle (Dem., Ky.) upon
i the obliteration of sectional feeling and '■
| the reality at last of a reunited coun
try.
The speech of Mr. Grosvenor was
brief, but so non-sectional, fraternal
and patriotic that the entire house
| broke in to generous applause.
| The speech called for the response '
from Mr. Settle (Dem., Ky.) upon the i
: part of the South, that has been not |
j often surpassed in phraseology and
eloquence. He said the American peo- I
pie would free, not only Cuba, but !
would free themselves and "out of this ;
I fire and flood, wherewith wo are now !
being baptized, we shall come forth I j
j doubt not, new men and new women, j
clean every whit, with sectional hate
and sectional bitterness clean gone for
ever. That were a consummation de
voutly to be wished."
When Mr. Settle concluded, several '
minutes elapsed before order was re- !
stored. Members from all quarters of !
the chamber crowded to the Kentucky i
I member's seat, and congratulated him. I
Inc;d._..tal to the debate several mem- i
bers reviewed the contusion that a !
member of congress could not hold sim
j ultaneously a military and civil office.
The debate was brought on by a
reference to Gen. Joe Wheeler, now
serving as a major general, and until
I recently a member of the house.
The statement that some states
were unable to respond to the
j demands for volunteers called forth, in- :
I cidentally, explanations, and an allegod i
I interview with Mr. Overstreet (Rep., I
: Ird.) upon the subject, reflecting upon ]
j the loyalty of certain states, was con
demned by several members, but the
discussion was declared out of order.
The p.Hspage of the bill considered to
day by the house will affect but tew
j parties, since the general acts passed !
lin President Grant's administration '
and many special relief bills have re- j
moved all disabilities, with the excep
tion of those in a few hundred cases.

Gorman's Amendment, Levying a
Tax Ipoii Gross Receipts of Cor
porations Pefcated by a \'ote of |
27 to »4 Hill for Protection of I
Homestead Settlers Who Enlist J
Paused.
WASHINGTON, June 1. — Marked
] progress was made today by the senate !
towards the final disposition of the war j
revenue measure. The committee i
j amendments on nearly sixty pages of i
i the bill were passed, and the senate |
nearly reached the principal questions !
at issue between the contending par- !
ties.
The interest of the cession centered !
jin the amendment of Mr. Gorman !
I (Dem.), levying a tax of one-quarter of I
! 1 per cent upon the gross receipts of all ]
I corporations doing a business exceed- !
1 ing $250,000 a year. By a direct vote j
i upon it the amendment was rejected
i 27 to 34.
Mr. Pettigrew (Pop., S. D.) offered j
i the Gorman amendment with the clause I
i containing the $250,000 exemption !
. stricken out, but it was defeated by a j
i vote of 25 to 37.
Mr. White (Dem., Cal.) then proposed
i the Gorman amendment, so modified I
; that it levies a tax of one-quarter of
i 1 per cent upon all corporations en- i
'< gaged in the refining of sugar or pc- |
trrleum. The senator explained that I
he desired to see a tax levied on the j
American Sugar trust and Standard |
Oil company. The- amendment pre- |
vailed by a vote of 33 to 26. It was
supported by twenty-two Democrats, |
four Republicans, five Populists and j
two silver Republicans, and opposed '
by twenty-four Republicans and two
Democrats.
Speeches were made today by Mr.

Mr. Chandler devoted almost the en

MARRIAGES OF EARLY JUNE
MONTH USHERED IN WITH
BRIDES AND FLOWERS
Interesting Ceremonlet In All Parts
of St. Paul on the First Day of the
Month Some "Were Church Af
fairs' ana Others Took Place at
the Homes of the Parents of the
Brides.
Yesterday, the first day of June,
dawned clear and pleasant, and a jjlo
rious sun cast rays of hope and fair
piomlses over fully fifteen brides In
St. Paul.
If omens count — and every bride, no
matter how famous she may be for her
common sense and lack of notions, is
superstitious on her wedding day — the
numerous brides«pf yesterday, one and
all, have happy sunshiny lives before
them, for June was never blessed with
a more ideal day. There was a wedding
in almost every part of the city, and
i even the old court house had its share
of the festivities, for a couple from the
country some place strayed into the
city hall during the day and, after
duly receiving their license, were quiet
ly married in the building.
Some of the weddings took place In
the churches, and others were home
weddings. None were elaborate affairs,
the June brides being very modest in
their wedding preparations.
Some of the brides wore their going
away gowns, but the majority were
gowned in simple white organdie or
Bilk, and one and all were disinclined
to tell thoir plans for a wedding trip,
dreading the merry making of their
friends.
FARWELL-MERRITT.
Miss Birdena Farwell, only daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Farwell, and
Eugene Merritt, of Chicago, were mar
ried at 5 o'clock at the family resi
dence, 821 Selby avenue. The ceremony
was one of the prettiest of the year.
The rooms were adorned with a wealth
of flowers and plants. The .windows
ver« draped with smilax, and the
arches and doorways were adorned
with the same. Plants and blossoms,
nearly all of pure white, were every
where, and the heavy fragrance of the
flowers, the darkened rooms with their
artificial lights, and the bride in her
dainty gown of white organdie with
trimmings of lace and ribbons made
a scene as from some fairy tale.
Rev. M. D. Shutter, of the Church
of the Redeemer, of Minneapolis, per
formed the ceremony, the bridal party
standing in the large window in the
second room before a dainty screen
of green. The bride and groom were
unattended. A wedding supper fol
lowed the ceremony. Mr. and Mrs.
Merritt will be at home after July 15
at 4335 Ellis avenue, Chicago.

Larger Number of l)anwii;<- Suit.

»u«s Claimed.
City Attorney Markham yesterday
filer! with the city clerk the annual re
port of the legal department for the
year ending Dec. 31, 1897. The follow
ing is an abstract of the report:
During the year 145 dvil cases have re
ceived the attention of the department, and
or this number ninety-seven have been trie*
and finally disposed of and forty-eight are still
pending and undetermined.
In addition to the civil cases a large- num
ber of criminal prosecutions have been in
stituted and conducted in the municipal court
The conduct of the prosecution of these lasss
has demanded the exclusive attention of one
of the assistants of this department.
A very large percentage of the suits brought
aganist the city are ac.ions for the recovery
of damages for personal injuries, alWgtd to
have been sustained by the defective condi
tion of wooden sidewalks. The number of
suits of this class brought during the past
year exceeds those of previous years and
the aggregate amount of damages claimed
shows a corresponding over the
amount of claims In similar actions brcu^'ht
and filed during the year 1&06. Some of these
cases are meritorious, but in mosi of them
the nature and extent of the defects wh'ch It
is claimed resulted in the injury, us well aj
the nature and extent of the injuries received
are grossly exaggerated by complainants and
those interested in the prosecutio i of the
claims.
One great obstacle In the way of properly
meeting and resisting these claims is the ab
sence of any systematic course of sid'wak
Inspection. Several repair crew.«, consist
ing of two or more men, with a horse and
wagon, carrying materials, are employed to
make repairs on wooden sidewalks in variacu3
parts of the city, and a large am- u.nt of
money approximately 115,000 a yeir, U ex
pended in making repairs of this character
These crews seem to go about very much on
their own notion, putting down a plank here
and there, wherever necessity seems to re
quire it. but no record Is kept of the side
walks that are Inspected, and but a very
meager record as to the time when and places
where repairs are made. The result is that
the city is without evidence in these partic
ulars. Frequently the city has no notlco
whatever until thirty days after the injury
has been sustained, and is left at the m rev
of the claimant and interested parties and 1s
bound to accept their statements as' to tns
character of the defect, and the length of
.w »2 "rtfted before the injury. It is true
that the police officers of the city are chnrged
with the duty bf reporting defective sidewalks
to the chief of police, and the chief in turn
wuh reporting to the city engineer, but com-
I paratively few reports of this nature are, as
| a matter of fact, ever sent in. and experience
I 011 ° f CharaC "
The amount claimed in all cases brought
for recovery of personal injuries on ace unt
of alleged negligence of the city, by reason
of its alleged failure to keep IU streets and
sidewalks in proper condition, in cases which
! have been tried and disposed of during the
j past year, was $209 879

suts for damages en account cf personal
m J TV" s a^? s brou S Sth t to trial between
March 10 and Doc. 31, wis less than 1 p r
cent of the amount sought to be recovered in
these eases.
A number of suits have been tried In which
claims were made against the eUy on
account of damages to property, amount
ing in the aggregate to 14,718.50, ui,d th
amount recovered in these classes of easel
I dur.ng the year was $278.50.
Early in 1597 a syndicate, or claim bur-au
: was organ-.zed by certain ind.viduals for ;h~
purpose of looking up claimants lor sums re-
I maining in the city treasury to t' c creci of
| such claimants, on account of damages cwirJ
ed in cene coi a ion pr: ceidings. Many ,f t ese
I credits had remained on the city's bocks for
! more than ten years. Purchasing the;e ila nis
for a sma.l percentage of their face va'uc
or entering into contracts with t'r.e claim
ants for the collection thereof on shades thea*
claims were presented to the c ty ccuiicil for
payment. The records kept in the city treas
urer's office for twenty years tack we re
raked over by representatives of this col
lection bureau and claims aggregating $~ai 000
were made against the city. I advisid the
cousot! that ai: these demand.-*, wii h had

tat On for payment T«"-e barred by the statute
of limitations and unde. . y idvife ;he .-uun
<Ml refused to pay any of 'the ciaim.i •« t)
which the statute of limitation had so mn
Civil suits were brought against th > cty
to reco\er ou such cli'.ms and a test case hav
ing been tried resulted in favor or the city.
Other suits on claims of like character ha\e
therefore, been abandoned.
The report calls attention to the amount
deposited in insolvent banks in l>e emter,
1896, and Jaunary. 1807, in whir-h the city
had on depos't $250. 000. Arrangements were
made with the e'ty treasurer and hi 5 ? tonds
men which resulted in the payment into the
city treasury of about $100,000 cf ihe funds
deposited at the time the banks suspended.
The suspension of the banks and crn?equent
proceedings entailed n large amount cf work
on the department. The report eonUaaea hat
it iB not unreasonable to expert that the city
will recover the entire amount o." these
deposits.
