Marred by inkstain, cut, and splinter,
Burned in summer, chapped in winter,
Schoolboy's hands have much to suffer;
Common soaps but make them rougher.'
Ivory Soap is pure, and hence
Leaves such pleasant after-sense
That the careless schoolboy, c'en,
Takes delight in being clean.

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
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
"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
"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

Broommakers' Union No. 30 held a rou

No. 1, Assembly rooms. They did not
elect \ delegates to the State Federation
convention at Duluth for the reason that
as yet they have received no call to do
so from the state secretary. 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 •../•-.•

The Schubert flub to Elect Of

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.

First Day. Testimony Show. ! 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
"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

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
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
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
Woodfork's memory proved to be very
poor, and he was succeeded by S. Lee
Davis, whose recollection turned out to
be better.

J. W. 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

afternoon. The little fellow was burned
about the limbs and lower part of his
body. It was at first believed that ho

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
