GO ON BY PETITIONS COIXTV DEMOCRAT'S, THE COUN TY ATTORNEY HOLDS, HAVE LOST TIII.IH IDBMTITV HOW HE HAS FIGURED IT OUT Melther tin* Democrmtto Nor Peo ple* Party Conventions Was Blade Up of Delegate* Represent ing Any Political Party That Polled One Per Cent of the Vote < nst at the !.«•>■ t ..eneral Election. County Attorney Anderson rendered fcis ungrateful party one last service jres terday ln declaring, in an opinion furnished County Auditor Sullivan re garding the preparation of the county ts, that the Democratic nominees ■wviv not entitled to a place on the ticket except by petitions of nomina tion. He bases his opinion upon the ground that the Democratic and Peo ple's party conventions were not made up of deli -' tea representing any po litical party that polled one per cent of the v^te at the last general elec holding that the fusion of the irties loses each its iden tity. In view of the opinion, the Demo cratio nominees must now get on the ticket by petition, or recourse must be h&d to mandamus proceedings to com pel the county auditor to place their names upon the ballot. Following ia the opinion of the county attorney in reply to the question of the county auditor: I . v ,;*.ve the honor to advise you, in response to your request for an opinion aa to the ord.r la which the names of candidates shall appear on the county ticket, that the law provides that the tickets to be printed under your di all be prepared as near as may be substantially in the same manner as provided for t!. llot, and that the i.auies shall be arrangtd in th.* same order as on the Kate ballot, regardless of the vote polled in an j particular county. This would bo plain and easy to follow, did the state and count} tickets correspond as to parties. But the state ballot has no ratic or the People's pariy, but Is the same as it was at the last fction, that I*. there is fusion of the wo parties. Whereas no fusion exists ln this couuty. The candidates are of e?.ch distinct party. Hence you are confronted with this Question, have those candidates been placed in nomination by assemblies or conventions of delegat s, constituting organized assem - of deli gates representing political par whicb Ht * * ~ neral election pol ed at least one per cent oi the entire vote cast iv this county? The law provides that in order to ascertain the vote, you shall take the av -* for suoh candidates of the party as were not indorsed by au other party. In this county two years ago t'.u-re "Was iiot one n^an on either the Democratic or Populist ticket not indorsed by any other party. Hence no such average can bo aacer- I am Informed that the attorney gen eral has held that the two parties should be treated in making up the state ballot, as a single entity, that is, as ono party. That a I shall fellow, as to any candidates *•: have been placed ln nomination by both parJea for the same place, and under like circumstances. Hut assuming, that position to be the correct one, you will see that that "entity" cr party has no county ticket in thi*> county, except as to a very few, and that this conclusion must logically follow, that the county candidate" on both the Demo crat* • and People's party tickets are not nomi nated by such conventions a-* to warrant their names to be printed on the official bal lot. They must bo nominated by petition. Hence you arc advised that ln making up the ballot, you shot) ld place the names on the ballots of candidates nominated by dele acting pursuant to the statute and rep ting political parlies, which, according to the rules referred to cast "the requisite number of votes, and then the names of the I 4 .ates nominated by petition in the order of the filing of their certificates. I have rendered you this opinion promptly t>y your request, so as to enable interested persons to take such action as to them may Seem proper and before the time for filing certificates has expired. Among* the Democrats the opinion wis discounted. It had been antici pated that some such move would be male before the ballot was made up, but as the announcement only took the form of a pronouncement by Coun ty Attorney Anderson no one paid any attention to it yesterday. Even in Re publican circles no particular jubila tion was indulged, for the Republicans, Quite as much as everybody else, are tJised to opinions by Mr. Anderson that ti not go far. Mr. Sullivan has not yet acted officially in the matter and his aotion will be awaited. WAS A PROPER FIZZLE. Xeltlier Brass Hands Nor Oratory Could Draw a Republican Audi ence. The Republican candidates turned _>ut in force last night in Mozart hall, and with the a.ssistanca of a few friends ratified their nominations. There was se deplorable scarcity of audience.

ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., NEW YORK. ■ - i 1 1 ■■ i mi iii seven men, Including the candidates, in the hall. The center of the stage was occupied by Edmund S. Durment and a table with a pitcher of ioe water. A hot stove would have been appreciated. Seated around the stage ln a semi-cir cle were the candidates whose elo quence was to thrill the audience. It looked like a minstrel show. Reference to a printed programme showed that seventeen speakers were down for ten minute talks. That meant 170 minutes of oratory, and the audience settled it self down in its seats with looks of pa tient resignation. Some of the old timers slunk down into their overcoats and went to sleep. ... P. Wade sat near the door and kept his eye on a delegation of his brethren on side seats, giving them the cue when to applaud and when to laugh. The band played something, and then j Mr. Durment spoke of the purity of the ! Republican party, which he said was ! the only one fit to govern the country. j He declared that there was a nominal 1 Republican majority in Ramsey coun ty, and predicted success for the Re ; publican ticket. He introduced Con i gressman Stevens with an admonition to stop talking at the expiration of ten I niir.-utes, but the congressman did not \ hted it. Congressman Stevens said the Re- publican party contained all the purity of the country and the Democratic party all the badness of the country, ; and he distorted history to prove his assertion. Henry Johns, candidate for the legis j Laturwe in the Thirty-eighth district, j amused the audience with a few jokes, I and then a large portion of the audl ■ ence rose and departed. The band played again to keep up the courage of the remainder of the audience, but it was too much for the candidates, several of whom followed their friends in the body of the hall. I Then William R. Johnson told how j good a county auditor he would make j If elected, and Edward G. Krahmer, who wants another term of register of j deeds, explained why he ought to be | elected. E. A. Jaggard, candidate for district Judge; E. W. Bazille, candidate for probate judge, and E. B. Lott, can didate for county commissioner, played solos on the same harp. Judge Will rich, who wants to be district judge, said a few words, thanking the Repub lican party for nominating him, and expressing the hope that the party would be rewarded for it next month, j and then George Irish, candidate for sheriff, explained why. he cannot de liver a speech. He is more skillful de livering votes. J. F. George, candidate for the legis lature in the Thirty-fourth district, made a few remarks, and then Horace Rigelow, candidate for county attor ney, the man who "would vote for a yellow dog" if it was a Republican, de clared that the taxes of the Twin City Rapid Transit company had been in creased under Republican administra tions, and that criticisms of the state board of equalization were highly im proper. It was past 11 o'clock when the rem nants of the audience were dismissed. To unprejudiced observers the meeting was a lamentable fizzle. The brass bands had been around town all the day drumming* up a crowd, and the re suits of all their blowing were most dis couraging. • • « CAMPAIGN GOSSIP. MT. P. Flt. K erald Turns Down a Pro- test Prom the Plrst Ward. There is a revolt again: _t T. D. Shee han in the First ward among the Swedes. It took concrete form yester day when a delegation of leaders of that nationality made formal dema-nd that Sheehan be omitted from the speakers at a Swedish Republican meeting that has been arranged for to morrow night at SJoberg's hall. The delegation gave it out flat that they didn't think it would do the party any good to have Sheehan on the list of speakers at the meeting, and that Shee han would create even more antagon ism than is now fixed against it if he appeared. It seems that the demand created something of a row. Harry Sundberg was at the head of the delegation that went to Republican county head quarters and demanded that Sheehan be taken off the list of speakers. He explained how it was that they would have nothing to do with Sheehan. The bills for the meeting were already out and he said that the Swedish Repub licans would not stand for it, and the dodgers must not be circulated. He was turned down at the instigation of If. W. Fitzgerald. The latter is the chairman of the Republican committee on speakers, and his dusky locks turn ed a deep carmine as he listened to the proposition. He told the delegation a few things, most of which had to do with the fact that Sheehan was the only Irish-American on the ticket, and he was the only representative of that nationality an the committee, and he would be so and so and so and so if he would tolerate any attempt to turn Sheehan down. They would have Shee han In the First, and they would have him everywhere else, if he, Fitzgerald had anything to do with the campaign' Apparently Sundberg and his delega tion had to be •satisfied with that way of putting It, for the bills for the meet ing were sent out in great numbers and Sheehan Is honored by the desig nation of "Hon.," while the rest of the speakers have to get along without any handle to their names. • * • Former Gov. McGill and his running mate, Walter Boyd, bailiff in a justice court in the western portion of the Eighth ward, will speak from the same platform tomorrow night. They are to be assigned different subjects. Mr. Boyd will tell what he knows about the best methods of seizing furniture in chattel foreclosures, amd the former governor will tell some things about that particular convention of the G. O. P., in which he ran second to W. R. Merriam. • • • Policeman Parrish who, by a little political fiction that is now permitted, is supposed to be a bailiff in the police court, has gone into a deal with W. L. Ames that would be satisfactory to the two of them if it could be made to win. They have engaged to carry the Second ward for Billy Johnson wltn the understanding that if Johnson 1^ elected Parrish is to be the chier deputy in the auditor's office, while Ames is to be assessor. The Ames af fair was settled before the convention, but he found he could do nothing in the Second without Parrish. and the latter had to be taken in. His duties in connection with the police force do not interfere with Parrish acting aa a committeeman and putting all of his time in in the Second. • • • An Irlsh-Jaggard club has been ! formed in the First ward.

He followed the seafaring business for two years, from New York, and came to St. Paul in September, 1873. He was for a time engaged ln German news paper work ajid later in the wholesale liquor j the shorter the campaign the more ef fective. While the Republican candi dates, who are running independent of their ticket, are giving beer feasts al ready, the regular Republican campaign work will not open until about the time of the opening of the Democratic bat teries. There is already a great deal of literature going out, and this will be followed by the speakers in a manner that will press home the arguments that are made. • * • This condition of affairs is not satis factory to the grafters, who had such a good thing In the Republican campaign last spring. The officers of the county Republican committee have been oblig ed to devise ways and means of getting in and out of their offices without going through the principal room, where the lrafers congregate. There is plenty of open kicking amongst them, except in the Third and Ninth wards, where in dividual candidates are taking care of their own. The Fourth and Fifth ward "grafting" organizations are practlcally starving to death and are making life a burden to Horace Bigelow, who was touted as a good thing, who would give up liberally. That was before the con vention, but Horace has frozen up for the present, and will not give up until he has felt the situation out. He feels that he is probably going to throw away some good money, for he appre ciates the fact that his election is a re mote prospect, and he is pretty wise for such a very ynung man. He went through one campaign, and his system of dodging is to keep away from head quarters and do his work from house to house, avoiding, of course, the money and beer seekers. • • • The People's party county commit tee organized last evening as follows: J.

Many people suffer from piles, be cause, after trying the many lotions, salves and ointments witnout relief or cure, have come to the conclusion that a surgical operation is the only thing left to try, and rather than submif to the shock and risk to life of an opera tion, prefer to suffer on. Fortunately this is no longer necessary, the Pyra mid Pile Cure, a new preparation, cures every form of plies, without pain, in convenience or detention from business. It is ln the form of suppositories, eas ily applied, absolutely free from opium, cocaine, or any injurious substance whatever, and, no matter how severe the pain, gives instant relief, not by deadening the nerves of the parts, but rather by its healing, soothing effect upon the congested membranes. The Pyramid Pile Cure is the most effective, the safest and most extensive ly sold of any Pile Cure that has ever been placed before the public, and this reputation has been secured by reason of its extraordinary merit and the rea sonable price at which it is sold, all druggists selling it at 50 cents and $1 per package, and in many cases a sin gle package has been sufficient. A person takes serious chances in neglecting a simple case of piles as the trouble soon becomes deep seated and chronic, and very frequently develops into fatal incurable rectal diseases, like fistula and rectal ulcers. Any druggist will tell you the Pyra mid Is the safest, most satisfactory pile cure made. The Pyramid Co., Marshall, Mich., will send to any address a treatise on cause and cure of piles, also book of testimonials. NEWS OF RAILROADS THE GREAT NORTHERN AN NOUNCES AN INCREASE IN ITS DIVIDENDS ANNUAL MEETINGS DUE TODAY Absence of President Hill May Ne cessitate Their Postponement-—— The Local Passenger Men Are In terested ln a Flight on Pittsburg Scalpers Would Like to Try What They Can Do Here. The annual meetings of the stock holders of the Great Northern and of the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba Railway companies will be held today at the offices of the Great Northern, un less they are postponed on account of the ahsence of President Hill. Mr. Hill, who has been in New York, was to have left that city last night, In which case he cannot arrive here until to morrow. Three directors of the Great Northern are to be elected to succeed Lord Stratheone and Mount Royal, of Glencoe, Scotland; Jacob H. Schiff and business. In 1579 he went to Rush City, this state, and engaged in the drug business. He lived in Rush City for about eight years, and was county commissioner for three years, jus tice of the peace and secretary of the board of education. In 1887 Mr. Umland moved back to St. Paul. He was married in 1876 and has three daugh ters. Mr. Umland is well informed on public matters, and has always given much atten tion to their study. Henry W. Cannon, of New York. The terms of all the directors of the St. Paul Minneapolis & Manitoba Rail way company expire today. The Great Northern has announced an increase of 1 i<er cent in dividends, payable quarterly in installments of 1% per cent. The road formerly paid only 6* per cent on its preferred stock. An Associated Press telegram from New York received yesterday says: "The annual report of the Great Northern Railway company show? to tal income $13,075,897; increase, $3,904,972 surplus after dividends, $5,162,157; in crease, $3,623,441. The total net earnings of the system were $13,075,805, an in crease of $3,904,973." FIGHTING THE SCALPERS. Local Passenger Men Anxious to Have the Lntrs Enforced. Local passenger agents are watching with great curiosity the efiorts of Chicago and Pittsburg to abolish the scalper. If the move ment in these cities is successful measures may be taken here to have the law against scalpers enforced. The mileage took is alleged to be the main stay of the scalper in this section. If some thing that could not be sold by the holders could be substituted for the mileage bjok it is said there would be no more scalpers out side of the Chippewa reservation. P.uggc-d and forged tickets are openly sold on Third street, but so skillful ty is the trickery dons thaf conductors tire unable to detect the swin dle until they examine the tickets closely. Even then the passenger cannot be punished, nor can the scalper guiity of the deception un less he confesses. Tickets are not like nrjney; a person who utters a false ticket cannot be reached by law. and if the scalper swears that he bought the ticket as he sold lt he can not be punished, either. There are laws on the Minnesota statute books, which, If they were enforced, would send every scalper to jail, but the' law is violated with impunity. The scalpers have learned that they will not be prosecuted. There are similar laws in Canada, but there Is a difference In that they are executed. Anyone caught selling tickets without a license from a railway company In Canada, is promptly arrested, fined or Imprison Tat There is no appeal from the decision of the trial court, and the consequence is, that ln the whole length and breadth of the Canadian dominions there is not one railway ticket scalper. The Canadian Pacific at one time issued tickets from Toronto to Manitoba points, with a counon attached, which entitled the original purchaser, after thirty days' stay in Mani toba, to a return ticket to Toronto at half fare. A man one day presented a coupon at the offlce of the Canadian Pacific in Winnipeg with a request for a halt-rate ticket to To ronto. Ke claimed to be the original pur chaser of the ticket, but the agent was sus picious. The man, however, answered all questions put to him bo readily that everyth ng appeared all right, and he was given the ticket he desired. After he had left Winnipeg an Investigation was started and the original pur chaser of the ticket was found ln Winnipeg. The "agent immediately telegraphed t^e cir cumstances to the offlce in Toronto, arid the agent there swore out a warrant for the fraudulent holder cf the return ticket. As soon as the latter landed in Toronto he waa arrested and taken to court, where he was fined the usual cum, and ln addition a sum equal to the full fare from Winnipeg to To ronto, the expenses of his arrest. In all he had to pay $80 to get out of his trouble. Since then no one has attempted to swindle a rail way ln Canada. "A scalper," said a well known railroad man yesterday, "is no better than a fence, and he should be treated as one. He conducts an unlawful traffic and there is no reason, unless it be political, why the state authori ties should not root the scalpers out of the state." CANADIAN PACIFIC CASE.. Arguments in- the Arbitration of Differential Differences On. CHICAGO. Oct. 12.— The first formal meet ing of the board of arbitration, recently named to decide the difficulties over differentials on freight rates between the Canadian Pacific Railway company and the American Western lines, was held at the Auditorium today. The proceedings were conducted behind" closed doors and all but representatives of the Inter ested railroad companies were excluded. The Canadian Pacific was represented by Robert Kerr and G. M. Bosworth, two of the com pany's traffic managers. J. c. Stubba, vice president of the Southern Pacific railroad, and Paul Morton, vice president of the Santa Fe railway, represented the American lines. It waa understood no evidence would be takes bearing on the dispute; that the proceedings would be conflned to arguments by the repre sentatives of the Canadian Pacific and Amer ican lines. Judge Day waa appointed president of the board. According to agreement, the Canadian Pacific's side of the case was first presented. The session was taken up by the spe.ch of Robert Kerr, who endeavored to Justify the •position of the Canadian Paoiflo company "With regard to differentials. He contended that the Canadian Pacific still labored under ■erious physical disabilities and declared lt would be unfair to the company to compete on even terms with the American lines. He denied that there had been a disposition on the part of his company to violate the laws of tho United States. He argued that tho Canadian Pacific was still entitled to a differ ential rate, and denied that the American lines had lost freight on account of the cheaper rates. Freight Traffic Manager Bosworth will fol low tomorrow, in behalf of the Canadian Pa cific, after which Vice President Stubbi, of •Che Southern Pacific, will present the Amer ican side. Chicago railroad officials express themselves as confident the board of arbitration will re turn a verdict in favor of the American lines, the question at issue being, they asj.-rt, similar in nature to that which involved the consideration of passenger rates, and which the Intersta-to commerce commission decided in f*.lor of the Western roads. NEW PACIFIC OCEAN LINE. Report That One Will De Organised ln a Short Time. President Hill, of the Great Northern, Is Bald to be Interested ln a new steamship line which Is to ply between Seattle, Vladivostok, Hong Kong and Manila. Frank Waterhouse and E. W. McGinnls, of Seattle, are said to have Mr. Hill's indorsement of euch a line, with an understanding that it shall have a direct connection with the Great Northern railway. There has been a falling out between the Great Northern railway and the Seattle-Hono lulu Steamship company, because the latter has repudiated its agreement with the rail way con-many to advertise itself as a con nection or the Great Northern. This action was precipitated by Internal troubles in the steamship company resulting in the retire ment of Col. Colegrave. Mr. Hill desires to have a Pacific steamship line and he realizes that if Manila is to be an American port a line of American steamers there will be desirable and ln harmony with his policy. On this account he is said to favor the establishing of a new line, which may be of direct benefit to his railway. Washington flour and lumber is ln demand in Siberia, as well as in Yokohama and Hong Kong, and if the new line is started it is certain of a large volume of business in those exports. Seattle business men are anxious that such a line should be estab lished from that city, for they believe their interests will be greatly improved by lt. OMAHA'S BIG WEEK. Reports Indicate That a Great Many Are Attending the Exposition!. There was fear among the Omaha railway officials yesterday that the rainy weather would seriously interfere with President's day at Omaha. But a telegram was received from that city early in the afternoon stating that the weather there wa3 Eood, though a high westerly wind was blowing. The Omaha line has carried many hun dreds of passengers to the exposition this week from the Twin Cities. The night trains have been sent out in two sections on ac count of the heavy travel. This will be the banner week of the exposition, so far as at tendance Is concerned. REQUESTS FOR DEPOTS. People Seem to Think Mr. Hill Has a Supply. Since lt became known that President Hill, of the Great Northern, was actively inter ested In the management of the Baltimore & Ohio a number of requests have been sent to him from cities and towns on the latter road asking ror Improved depot and freight ace. nmoditttons. It seem* to be the impression along that line that Mr. Hill has a stock of depots on hand which he caa distribute at will to thos. who need them. MR. NEWMAN'S OLIJ PLACE.
