CINCINNATI " LABOR'S FIELD DOBttBHOOa Qgaiuauv Just at present considerable interest Is being manifested in the forthcoming n.teting of the State Federation of La bor at Duluth on June 12 and 13. Quite a number of unions have already elected their delegates to this convention, and others will do so in the near future. It is expected that, uwlng to the certain re vival in nearly all Industrial lines, the Duluth meeting will be one of the most Important and interesting ever held in the ptate. For the benefit of new union members, BJid fur those who have never thorough ly investigated the objects of this organ ization, the following facts are submit ted: "The State Federation of Labor is a Helegaie body composed of delegates from the trades unions and similar labor or ganizations and the Farmers' Alliance of the state. It has the same relation to the state industrial affairs that a trades assembly does to a city. The federation •was organized July 7, 1890. "Its central idea is to bring local bodies Into closer affiliation, and to intltiate and carry on general forms of agitation that could not be successfully handled by lefcal bodies, and it pays special at tention to legislative matters affecting Industrial affairs. It holds semi-annual Bft-siona at places designated by the pre ceding conventions. Prior to 1894 the ses sions were held alterantely in the Twin Cities, but that year the experiment of holding the meetings in other cities in the state proved so successful that the two larger cities do not now have a' mo nopoly of the federation's conventions. In the Interim between conventions the general work of the organisation is left to an executive council of tive members, elected all from the same city Bemi-an nually. "Already the federation has done much" to inspire a feeling of unity between the various labor organizations of the state; and its legislative work has been produc tive of much good to the interests it rep resents. In time to come there is every reason to expect that It will fully Justify its existence." Following is the platform of the Feder ation of Labor: Compulsory education; a legal eight hour work day; sanitary Inspection of workshop, mine and home; liability of employers for injury to health, body or life, whether caused by the neglect or lncompetency of employes or not; the abolition of the contract system on all 20 Pounds Granulated &4 tffe fl Sugar ...". : N* I« V V whether you buy anything 1 else or not.

Big Meeting: of Carpenters. • Early last evening the upper halls of Assembly rooms were being ransacked for chairs to supply the overflow of car penters in Hall No. 3.

Other unions are complaining of the same thing. It Is expected that nearly every union in the city, with the exception of the furriers, will send from one to five delegates. There were no initiations or applications for the broommakers last evening, but the members reported the state of trade as fairly good. - \~;s •../•-.• Coopers Get an Increase.

Phil lips Gave a Delightful Recital at Mlms Llela Breed's "Occasional"— The Schubert flub to Elect Of ficer* Today—Social News of a Merry May Day. Miss Liela A. Breed's "occasional" re cital last evening, in the music room of the Raudenbush block, at which Mrs. Jessica De Wolf and Mr. H. E. Phillips gave an excellent programme of six num bers, was not only a delightful musical event, but one which was favored with an audience which crowded every inch of available space. The programme was given in groups of songs, an arrangement which added not a little to the evening's pleasure, and In his first group, two Schumann numbers, "Resignation" and the "Ballade dcs Haf ners," Mr. Phillips won hearty applause. His voice displayed careful training, and was used with good effect, carefully mod ulated and displaying a power held in re serve. Mrs. De Wolf, who needs no in troduction to St. Paul audiences, followed with a double number, the old familiar "Mignon's Song" and the Liszt arrange ment of "Die Loreley." Her finest num ber was "With Verdure Clad," Haydn, from the "Creation," in which her clear, sympathetic voice appeared to its best advantage. Two numbers of- her last group, Bemberg's "Serenade" and " 'Twas April," Nevin, were rendered with exquisite grace and color. In Schu bert's "Litani," and "The Quest," Eleanor Smith, Mr. Phillips ably sustained the favorable impression created earlier in the evening. The recital was followed with a recep tion in Miss Breed's private studio, at which Mesdames VHtum, T. L. Warm and William Begg received. The room was handsomely decorated with roses, palms, ferns and cut flowers. A second recital will follow in two weeks ,at which Miss Breed's students will appear. * * * The Schubert club will hold its annual meeting and election of officers in the rooms in the Phoenix guilding today, at 3 o'clock. •■*■•,-'■' — i ; Mrs.: M.

That . the Precinct In Which the Dis pate Arose. Was the Scene. of a Number of Departures From the : Procedure. Prescribed by the Election Law. The most damaging testimony in the trial of Georgse Colter, on the indictment charging him with making fraudulent re turns aa Judge of election in the second precinct of th»..Fourth ward, while acting as JudKe of election last November, was the evidence given by S. Lee Davis, who assisted In counting the ballots. He testi fied that the law in regard to the method of counting and tabulating had b-en Ig nored in several respects. The witr.ess had Just returned from the South, where he went for the benefit of his heal.h. While there he read of the Colter indict ment In the Globe, and the fact was recalled to his memory that when the vote for county treasurer was reached Miesen's vote was counted first by Colter and then the balance of the voles cast was credited to Arosin. That made the count 110 for Miesen and 72 for Arosin. "But the total number of votes was 184, and if 110 of them were for Meisen why did you not credit A rosin with seventy four?" asked Assistant County Attorney Zollman. "I don't know," replied the witness. Mr. Davis testified that the defendant and himself had not obeyed the law that requires one judge to count and the other to watch the count and watch the clerks. They had counted the blue bal lots, or county ticket. Colter had count ed part and the witness the rest. Bach would announce his totals to the clerks except that sometimes the witness would give his totals to Colter and the la t.-r would add his own figures and announce the result. All but the vote for county commissioners were handled in this man ner, with the exception as explained in the matter of the county treasureshlp. The witness was still on the stand when court adjourned. Only ten jurors had been secured when court opened and one of these, W. H. O'Dell, was excused.by Judge Lewis on account of a death in his family. A special panel of twelve men was in at tendance, and the three Jurors needed were secured within a half hour. They were: John W. Pfeiffer, William E. Sack ett and Charles P. Potts. In opening the case for the state. At torney Zollman reviewed the circum stances attending the commission of the alleged offence. Colter, he said, was an election judge in the second precinct of the Fourth ward, with the polling place located on St. Peter street near the Windsor hotel. The state would prove that Colter had made statements b:fore the recount to the effect that the re turns had been doctored and that the de fendant and S. L. Davis had handled the blue, or county, ballots exclusively. It was in these that the fraud had been dis covered. As illustrating the manner in which the work was done, Mr. Zollman read the following list of returns for the precinct: A3 Actually Counted. Cast. Jaggard 104 90 Willrich 68 61 Michael 66 78 Bunn 102 101 For County Treasurer— Arosln 72 82 Meisen 110 72 Register of Deeds— Krahmer 11l 104 Oilman 63 67 Judge of Probate — Bazille 99 98 Cavanagh 74 68 State Senate— Horton ..144 105 S-tryker 65 63 Abstract Clerk— Schultz. ....112 104 Ellis 70 65 Irvine 79 65 E. E. McCrea, assistant city clerk, was the first witness called by the state. He testified concerning the distribution of the ballot boxes to the judges of election. The oath was administered in the office to one judge from each precinct, and by him, in turn, to the other Judges. The poll book of the Second precinct of the Fourth ward was produced and identified by the witness as the same that had been Issued to Colter, and in which Colter's oath of office had been signed. John Ross, an entry clerk, emplpyed by Robinson & Strauss, and one of the Judges of election In the Second precinct, testified that the polls were closed at 7 o'clock. The judges and clerks took sup per, and then commenced the work of counting. The election officials present in the room were Judges Colter, Davis, "Woodfork and- Ross, and Clerks Deneen, Hause, McNulty and "Vance. The witness had assisted Woodfork in counting the white ballots with the state ticket. After wards he, with the other judges, had taken the returns to the city hall. On cross-examination, by Attorney W. H. McDonald, the witness stated that the blue ballot box had beer, sealed at the polling place, but that the seal had been knocked off on the way to the city hall, where it was replaced. The box was not opened then. City Clerk Jensen testified to having taken the ballot box in question up to the grand jury room, and identified the box, which occupied a conspicuous place In the court room on Deputy Clerk Stobbart's desk. Then H. Thomas Quinlan, foreman of the grand Jury that found the Indictment against Colter, was called to the stand, and Attorney McDonald registered a pro test. He objected to the admission of any testimony going to show that the bal lot box had been opened in the grand jury room. He argued that the jury had no right to open the box, and that, in the ab sence of any law permitting the opening, the court had no right to order the box opened. The law said that the box should be opened only for contests or for exami nation, and the grand Jury did not want it for either of these purposes. "That point is covered by the general election law," said Mr. Zollman, and the court sustained this view of the case. Mr. Quinlan Identified the ballot box, and the identification was made complete by John W. Owens, another member of the grand jury. Albert Johns, assistant city clerk, and Deputy Auditor Bourne both testified in regard to the records. James Woodfork, one of the judges, tes tified that he and Ross had counted the state tickets and that Davis and Colter had counted the blue or county tickets. The only thing the witness had to do with the blue tickets was when he asked for a recount on representative, and that as a result Henry Johns lost two votes. Colter had been perfectly willing to assist in the recount. Woodfork's memory proved to be very poor, and he was succeeded by S. Lee Davis, whose recollection turned out to be better. Colter appeared not at all worried dur ing the trial,- and smiled at his acquain tances in the 1 crowd that filled the court room. Annual Meeting?

Cooper, of Grlggs, Cooper & Co., Explains Some tut the Tech nical Point* Involved In the Cof fee Export Trade — Some South American Tables Corrected— _.J Capita Consumption in V. 8.,'.,; In an interview yesterday J. W. Coop er, of the firm of Griggs, Cooper & Co., called attention to several inaccuracies which appeared in an interview credited to him In which the business of import ing coffee was the subject. He called at tention to the fact that the Java, and not the Mocha crop, is controlled by the Dutch government. In speaking of the Java and Mocha growths, he said: "Java coffee is grown under the super vision of the Dutch government, and is sold at quarterly sales under the govern ment's supervision. These sales take place after the coffee to be marketed has re mained in the hands of the government time enough to become aged. Firms in the United States importing coffees buy through agents. "The statement was made to me not long ago by a broker who does a heavy business in coffee, that St. Paul buys more Java than the city of Boston. Java coffee comes in "mats," while other growths come In bags. Rio and Santoa coffees are governed by a schedule or standard made necessary by the inau guration of a coffee exchange in New York. The No. 7 grade forms the basis from which all sales are made. Let me call your attention to the fact that the highest grades of these growths are num bered one, and bring the highest price. Inferior grades are numbered in order decreasing to No. 7. "Aside from the Mocha and Java cof fees high grades used in this country are grown in Central America, Mexico and other tropical countries. Some of these coffees approach in quality the Java growth, but the latter is, of course, the best. Mocha coffee comes from Aden, Arabia, which is an Important coffee market. The production is quite small, not to exceed 4,000 tons annually. The genuine article of Mocha can be bought from all first-class coffee roasters, but very little of It is used unless in com bination with other brands. It is a strong coffee, the berries being small and flat. The pure Java is mild and of delicate flavor. Very few, however, desire it un less mixed with Mocha or some other growth. Mocha is almost without excep tion used to give body to other varieties, a very large part of the yearly export being mixed with Java. It gives strength and body and adds to the drinking quali ties. A few, however, insist on having: the pure article. "The world's product of coffee Is about 13,000,000 bags of 132 pounds each. The United States uses a largt amount of the yearly production, the consumption per capita being between seven and eight pounds." HIS BURNS PROVED FATAL LITTLE JAMES JOHNSON DIES : FROM. THE INJURIES HE RE- . \ v \ : OEIVED MONDAY His Burns Were Too Extensive anil "■: the Shock; Proved Too Much, In Spite of the Efforts to Alleviate :. ■; Hl* Sufferings. r . ~;\ , ''-. .';: •;.". James Johnson, the five-year-old boy so badly burned while playing about a bon fire Monday, died at the home of his parents, 161 Goodrich avenue, yesterday afternoon. The little fellow was burned about the limbs and lower part of his body. It was at first believed that ho would recover, but the shock proved too severe and, despite medical aid, he suo cumbed. Just how the boy's clothing caught fire Is not known. He was playing about a burning rubbish pile with two compan ions when he suddenly cried out and started to run toward his home, half a block distant. The wind fanned the flames and his clothing soon blazed about him. Mrs. Hnag, a neighbor, saw the child's danger and ran to his assistance. With her apron she smothered the fire, but the lad had been terribly burned be fore his rescuers reached him. The fact that the boy's face was not burned and that he did not Inhale any of the flame led to the hope that he might recover. Dr. Sweeney attended the young sufferer, but beyond relieving his agony his efforts proved futile The funeral will take place from the residence at 9 a. m. Friday. Services will be held at the Cathedral at 10 o'clock. Will Not Send Delegates. Plumbers' Union No. 84 decided last night that they would not send any del egates to the State Federation of Labor. The state of trade was reported fair, and four new members were initiated. There are fourteen applications pending, which will be acted upon next Tuesday evening.
