CINCINNATI "LABOR'S | FIELD 1 St. Paul AmaJgamated Sheet Metal Workers No. 42 held a special meeting yesterday afternoon in Hall No. 3, As sembly rooms. It was an open meeting, and called for the purpose of organizing the tinners of this city. Quite a large number of metal workers from St. Paul •were in attendance, as well as a delega tion from Minneapolis. In every way the assemblage was an unqualified success. The following speakers addressed the meeting: TV. Fleid, president of the Min neapolis Building Trades council; Presi dent Gaskin, of Amalgamated Sheet J4»cal Workers of St. Paul, and Secre tary Young, of the Minneapolis union. Their remarks were heartily received. Following the meeting the non-union men were invited to Join, and twenty-eight re sponded by handling in their applications, which were received and filed pending further action. EL MODELO^ CIGAES. Strictly Cuban hand-made. WHITE BABY WHALE, The Second of It* Species, Captured In New Englund Waters. Chicago Chronicle. A novel find was made by a fisherman at Provincetown. It was a baby white i whale and is the second of the series ! ever seen so far south of the cruising i grounds. The white whale is almost pure ! white in color and has no dorsal fin, but a low ridge Instead, and the one found by Joe Lema was of thl3 class. The whale was on exhibition on the fish wharf In this city last week and at tracted much attention from fishermen and scientists. The variety Is an in habitant of the arctic seas and visits the River St. Lawrence, where numbers are Been yearly. One was brought from that river alive in 1857 and exhibited in this city. Another was killed in Province- | town harbor about that time, but not one of the old fishermen could name It, although the veteran ichthyologist Na thaniel Atwood pronounced it identical ■with the one displayed In Boston. The specimen just found is a baby, or half grown, measuring a trifle under eight feet in length, with a skin as soft as velvet and of a uniform light gray color except upon the under body, which Is pure white, and its teeth, which pro trude through the gums, attest its tender axe. Whales are more than usually plentiful off the Massachusetts coast this fall. A i family, consisting of a bull, cow and calf, | was seen gamboling off the Wood End live saving station the other day, and the same schooner Jennie passed two large white whales off Cape Cod. The cre"w of the Jennie saw the whales at a dis tance for some time, and when off the end of the cape one of them passed di rectly beneath the vessel, and the men judged it to be eighteen feet long. The presence of these marine monsters In these waters at this time is accounted for by the vast schools of mackerel, upon which they have been feeding, and which they have probably driven down from the north. -^ OMAHA, Neb., Dec. 10.—The Illinois Central has put a party of surveyors to j ■work on a short route for the Sioux Cliy- | Omaha line, which will be used for an Omaha entrance for the Minneapolis & St. Louis fast trains into Sioux City, as soon as the New Ulm-Storm Lake line is completed.

For twenty-three daya Otto Filtzbauer ! claims to have hidden away a recluse I in an unoccupied house on Hester street, I near the fish hatchery, without food or warmth until, when found by the police i yesterday, he was ill from exposure and j starvation. The man was poorly clad, | without shoes or stockings and extremely j filthy. His feet were frost-bitten, while j his emaciated condition corroborates his story of privation, and he was so ex hausted that he could scarcely speak. Under his thin clothing he had stuffed a lot of excelsior to keep him warm. Filtz bauer was removed to the city hospital, where the physicians say he is very ill, shewing sympton:s of acute pneumonia. Filtzbauer is a German and cannot speal: English. Through an interpreter he told a rather rambling story of his self-banishment to the old house. He said he was a stranger in the city, sick and without means, bo when he came upon the unoccupied house he crawled in side. His condition grew rapidly worse, and he could not leave the place. Wait ing and hoping for someone to come to his rescue, Filtzbauer says he remained helpless, without food or drink, for twenty-three day?. He remembers the length of his suffering, he says, because he scratched a nark on the plastering of the walls as the days went by. He fre quently called for help, but was so weak that his voice scarcely sounded through the room, and no one on the outside heard him until yesterday. The sick man was discovered in his terrible plight shortly after 5 o'clock yes terday afternoon, when Marcus Mossong, a dairyman living near the unoccupied house, heard a faint cry issuing from the plaoe. He investigated and found Filtz bauser lying exhausted on the floor. The Margaret station police were at once no tified, and took Fiitzbauer to the station. Here he was thoroughly warmed and given some ford, when he was hurried to the hospital. The house where Filtzbauer was found was formerly used as a railroad board ing house. It is located on the river | bluff, within a short distance of the fish | hatchery and close to the Burlington rail road yards. It has been unoccupied for some time, and the only house in prox j imity is that of the dairyman, who went Ito the unfortunate man's rescue. The road passing the house is not a graded street, and comparatively few persons travel it, which may account for the fact that Filtzbauer was not earlier discover ed. When the police reached Filtzbauer he | was unconscious and apparently dead. His face was thin and pinched, deathly white, and his limbs cold. He lay oa~*he bare floor, without covering of any kind, while his body was in a revolting state of uncleanliness. Filtzbauer revived at the station, but lapsed into unconscious ness again on the way to the hospital. The physicians say the man had beyond doubt undergone extreme privation, and was suffering greatly from lack of food, but were somewhat skeptical as to the length of Filtzbauer's suffering. The doc tors say a sick man could hardly have lived through such a long period of star vation and exposure, but Filtzbauer in sists that he lay in the house twenty three days. He is twenty-nine years of age and a laborer. He says he has an aunt Mrs Josephine Geier, living in this city. His condition is regarded by the physicians as precarious. — m THEIR CALL, A CLOSE ONE.

THE ST. PAUI, GI,OBE, MONDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1899 ( HAS HONORED LABOR FATHER LAWLER SAYS THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH HAS MADE TOIL RESPECTED SERIES OF SUNDAY MEETINGS Flrat of a Number to Be Given at AmnuM}- Halls Addressed by the Pastor of the Cathedral and Rev. F. B. < oivrlll. of the Flrat M. E. Church- Prominent Speakers Who Will Address Future Meeting*. Assembly hall was packed to the doors yesterday afternoon, the occasion being the first of a series of public meetings held by the ministers of the city and members of the various labor organiza tions. Rev. David Morgan presided, and intro duced the Misses McDaniel, who favored the audience with an Instrumental duet. Mr. Morgan then Baid that the question of holding these semi-monthly meetings had grrown out of several conferences held between the ministers and represen tatives of organized labor concerning cer tain matters at the state penitentiary. It had been decided to make the experiment, and there was every indication that it ■would be successful. Scarcely had the echoes of Bishop Potter's address at the People's church died away when requests came from all sides to inaugurate the movement. It was expected in the futura to have address* a from Bishop Gilbert, Samuel Gompers, Archbishop Ireland and Miss Jane Addams, of Hull house, Chi cago. The Sunday before Christmas Bish op Gilbert would be the speaker at As sembly hall. Mr. Morgan then introduced Father Lawler and Rev. F. B. Cowgill, oi the First M. K. church. Father Lawler said in part: It is certainly encouraging to see this magnificent audience desirous of hearing the treatment of vital topics, and it is not less encouraging to lind that the clergy men of this city haxe expressed a will ingness to lenu active co-operation. If any additional lignt can be thrown on the problems of me Industrial world—if the oond of friendsnip between the em ployer and the employed can be strength ened—if false ideas concerning the cnurch s attitude toward labor can be re moved from the minds of people, the gen tiernen who have begun this movement will be amply rewarded. My principle is that he who stirs up a feeling of discord between different interests —who sets class against class —may well be branded as an enemy of society, while he who teaches sound principles, who tries to re move the difficulties and abuses which exist between capital and labor, who tells of the rights ana privileges of the one as well as or the other, performs a patriotic duty toward the community in which he lives. As it is my privilege to deliver the opening address, and as others wiil treat different phases of this vast sub ject, I shall confine my remarks to the work of the church in dignifying labor. What has Christianity done that it should receive the thanks of the laboring classes? To it we owe immortal thanks for its mission in the domain of labor. "Let us j honor labor," is the motto which has been on its lips from the beginning. One of the great blessings which the Christian religion conferred on humanity is the re habilitation of labor in the public estima tion. To it belongs the glory of having j rescued labor from the degradation into j which paganism had plunged it. Though i many a beautiful tribute be paid to the ! dignity of labor by gentile and Jew, yet, i in the course of ages, paganism regarded ' it as humiliating and degrading. Hero- ! dotus found a contempt for labor among j the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Thracians, Scythians, Persians and Lydians. In an cient Rome, as elsewhere, slavery struck I a fatal blow at the dignity of labor. There as elsewhere contempt for labor brought ruin to the empire. In harmony with the general sentiment of his coun trymen, even Cicero considered workmen as people of no account, as barbarians. Breadwinners, wage-earners, laborers were contemptible in pagan eyes. Into such a state of society Christian ity came. If the lot of those who work with their hands has been ennobled, sanc tified, since then; if the sons of toil are held In high esteem the world over, let it not be forgotten that the Christian religion must be thanked for it. We need not be surprised at the change wrought in the mind of the ancient world in re gard to labor, if we remember that the Founder of Christianity set the example. The Savior of mankind was known as a laboring man. "Is not this the carpenter, the Son of Mary?" they asked. By living the life of a mechanic, of a laboring man, He shed a halo of respect around the workshop. Little by little His principles gained ground until labor was restored to its original dignity. Gradually the words operarius and operarla, working man and working woman, which for cen turies had been terms of reproach, be came expressions of honor. Down through the centuries the church has al ways stood for the rights of all her chil dren. They who talk of an estrangement between the church and the laboring classes fail to verify their assertion. Let them visit the Cathedral from 6 a. m. to 12 Sundays and witness the church-going qualities of our working men and our working women. I have spoken of the glorious mission of the church in uplift ing labor. I might also tell of the magnanimous deeds done for religion by the sons of toil. They have not been un grateful. As they have been called the vii- era of our nation, so may it be said trnit they have done more than their snare in erecting religions monuments from ocean to ocean. They are not Btranpers to denying themselves com rorts.ln ihrlrown homes for the glory of the house of God.

Cowgill announced that he could heartily indorse the views of Father Lawler While religion was largely made up of classes, no one should believe that relations between the church and labor | were strained. This was proved by th large audience in attendance on this meeting. Quite a number of the best union men were church members He was glad to :?ee that ministers were so willing to unite with labor. For hi« own part, the speaker said, he conceded the right of every branch of industry to or ganize. There was in the various unions a vast amount of intelligence, good in- Strong Testimony This Is St. Paul Testimony and Will Stand Investigation. Tf you doubt the following and wish to Investigate, you haven't to go to some other state in the Union to prove it It's not a long story published in St. Paul newspapers about a resident in Kalama zoo, Mich., or Tampa, Fla. It's about a resident of St. Paul, and given in her own words. No stronger proof can tte had. Mrs. H. Stuart, of 625 Mississippi street, says: "A cold, combined with more than i-sual exertion, brought on pains in my back and other evidence of a disturbed condition of the kidneys. When I learned about Doan's Kidney Pills it was difficult for me to attend to even the lightest household duties, and going to F. M. Parker's drug store, opposite the post office, I procured a box of the remedy. The treatment ended the trouble abso lutely. My mother also used this prep aration with marvelous results." Doan's Kidney Pills are for sale by all dealers. Price, 50 cents. Foster-Mifburn Co., Euffalo, N. V., sole agents for the United States. Remember the name Doan's, and take no other. tent, candor and spirit of fair play. This he recognized, and felt that they should be met, on the part of employers, by an equal amount of Intelligence. And he be lieved that there was already enough for a basis. For it was hard to believe that the existing conflict between labor and capital t-hould go on forever unappeased. Personally the speaker's sympathies had always been for the workingman. His father had been a farmer and had several hired men. They ate at the same table, slept in as good beds as others of the family, and, as a farmer's boy, he had slept with them. There was no distinc tion. The interests of the farmer and hired man in his early days were mutual. If relations between capital and labor are changed today he did not believe it was because human nature had changed. That was the same all over the world. But systems had materially changed. The ex isting conditions between employer and employe kept them wile epart. Great combinations of capital had created in dustries so vast in theioramifications that many employers did not know their own workmen. They never got together to talk over matters face to face. It would be I better if they could do so, but it was not so. It is now impossible to bring them together so closely as it was in former years. It shou'd be remembered, however, j that the employer of today is no more ■ a monster than he used to be. Now he ! is absorbed in business, in charge of a j vast business machine that revolves sys- j tematically and without much regard for ; the humanities of life. There were sev- i eral things necessary, in the opinion of ■ the speaker, to harmonize differences be tween capital and labor. One of the es- ! sentfals was law conceived in a spirit of j fair dealing. Some good laws had al- i ready be^n passed. The speaker alluded | to the time when street car conductors i and motornieri were exposed to the win- j try blasts unprotected. A law stepped in ! and said that vestibules must be provided j to protect them. As years went on, Rev. j Cowglll said, he believed other benefi. cent laws would be enacted for the up- , lifting tnd protection of the laboring ' man. Anarchy should never be upheld, j but there was a certain kind of anarchy j among millionaires that was certainly ! reprehensible. Corporations that violated j the interstate commerce law were guilty of a certain kind of anarchy. Anarchy is lawlessness, and It could be said of such corporations that they were law less. Of course there were some evils which could not be reached by law. He favored arbitration in its widest sense. On the question of Sunday labor, Mr. Cowgiil was quite emphatic. He knew, he said, that people would say that he advocated the abolishment of Sunday la bor in order to get people into churches. But that was not, by any means, the principal reason. Rest was the main i thing. Every man needed one day in each week in which to rest. All indus trial systems should be so arranged that a man need not work seven days in a week. _^ _ . MARKET WAS VERY BRISK RESIDEXCE PROPERTY OX THE UP PER FIATS DEVELOPS MARK ED ACTIVITY One of the Humble Tenements Wns Sold So Often In One Day That Vendor and Vendee Had to Call on the Police to Arbitrate. One of the little "shacks" on the Upper | levee, near the foot of James street, ! changed hands several times yesterday, ! though no transfer of the property was i recorded in the register of deeds' office, and at midnight the second claimant held ! possession, while the third person claim ! ing the property held a $2 lien on the place. The dispute over the house arose over the desire of Michael Hochwimmer, the original owner, to dispose of the place j and his alleged readiness to sell to any I number of purchasers. The house Is a small affair, like many other dwellings in the neighborhood, appraised by the owner at $20. Edward Kavalsky, living on the Upper levee, just this side of the high bridge, heard that Hochwimmer wanted to sell the house, and opened negotiations toward Its purchase. His idea was to move it to the site of his present home and thus enlarge his dwelling. The land is government property, so only the house figured In the sale. Kavalsky says he closed the deal for the house, and paid Hochwimmer $20, obtaining a receipt for this amount. During the afternoon he went with his son to make arrangements to move the house. One end of the little building was gotten on a roller, but here the house movers were brought to a stop in their work by the appearance of John Weis, another levee dweller, living near the house. Weis wrathfully demand ed to know by what right Kavalsky was carrying off his property, and ordered the ! father and son to let the house alone. He said he-owned the place, and wanted the house to remain where It was. This was news to Kavalsky, who thought he held the title to the house, and a consul tation followed. Weis is said to have I exhibited a receipt for $20, alleged to have j been signed by Hochwimmer, in payment for the house, but this did not settle mat ters, because Kavalsky also had a like re ceipt, claiming also to haVe purchased the house. No compromise could be ef ; fected, as Weis insisted on retaining pos- I session of the place, so Kavalsky went to the police with his troubles. When he had told his story at the cen tral station, Officer Houska was sent out j with him to find Hochwimmer. The lat i ter was loea>.ed on the levee, near the disputed house, and placed under arrest. At the station he disclaimed having twice sold the hou3e, declaring that he had dis posed of the place only to Kavalsky. As it was a matter of more concern to the disputants themselves than any one else, they were allowed to discuss the deal at length, when Hochwimmer finally agreed to return $20 to Kavalsky. He had only $18 in his possession, however, but Ka valsky took this amount, and Hochwim mer promised to pay the additional $2 today, when he was released from cus tody. EL MODELO CIGARS.

A. T. Patterson, a prominent Bismarck attorney, was among the arrivals in St. Paul yesterday. Mr. Patterson states j that two large buildings have been com | pleted at the new military post at Bis marck, and a committee of Bismarck people are now In Washington in the In terests of securing an additional appro priation with which to continue the con- I struction work. "Senator C. B. Little and M. H. Jewell are in Washington and will ask congress j for $300,000," he said. "The two buildings j just completed cost something under $100,000. In all we expect about thirty buildings on the reservation. When the post is completed it will mean a great deal for Bismarck. Our people worked hard to secure this for a number of years, and from the present plans the buildings will cost in the neighborhood of $800,000. "Rapid progress is being made with the new binding twine plant at the state prison. Six car loads of machinery ar rived last week, and will be put in place very Boon. The work in the factory building will not be completed as soon as expected, because of the delay in in stalling the power and -heating plant, as the factory engines cannot be placed in position until the factory is heated. The boilers are in shape, and the work of In stalling the engine and power plant will be completed In a couple of weeks. It will require fully thirty dayg to put In the fiber machinery, and it will be early In February before the plant will begin operations. The output of the binding twine piant, in addition to giving the prisoners a profitable employment, la expected to give the farmers a lower price on binding twine. At the outset it Is hoped to give the farmers a reduction of 20 per cent under the existing trust price."' * * * Maj. E. G. Patterson, of Bismarck, ex pects to leave St. Paul tonight for Flor ida, where he will spend several months recuperating his health. Six weeks ago he was taken down with typhoid fever and brought to St. Paul and taken to St. Luke's hospital. For a time his life was despaired of, but an excellent constitu tion, and the skill of a council of St. Paul physicians, brought him back on the road to recovery. For a week or more he has been at the Windsor hotel. Some time during the winter he expects to visit Cuba. Maj.

In those days a flagman prac tically had no other duty than to protect the rear of his train. The books of in structions were very explicit on this point, and the word "immediately" was so prominent that you could see it about as far as you could see the book itself. The moment the slack came in the train after the engineer had whistled for brakes the flagman was supposed to jump off and run back to hold up the next train; and with trains running under a five-min ute limit a man had to be particularly nimble.

There are sometimes fat flagmen now; there were none then. The block system has been chiefly in strumental in doing away with train ; Jumping as a fine art. By this system every train Is assured of an absolutely ! clear track for a certain distance. If for ! any reason a train comes to a stop be i tween two signal points a flagman must I go back, but this is only in the nature ! of additional precaution. The flagman is j no longer the sole protector of a train In ' the rear, and the trains are under better : control on account of the air brake and I other appliances. It would. be hard to say how fast a train a man could jump from. In general it depended much upon the man. Men have jumped from trains running at the , rate of thirty-five miles an hour, and the first step they took when they struck the ground was about a rail length—thirty feet. Sometimes it was easy for them; at other times a depression or an elevation of an Inch under your foot would be encugh to make every muscle In your body sore for a week, although you were able to keep your footing. Nowadays, ex ! cept in rare cases, a man has no busl j ness, and is assuming an unnecessary risk, in getting on or off trains running faster than fourteen miles an hour. Wonders of the Locomotive.

The wonder of the tiling comes, into view only when one re flects on the speed and nicety with which lumbrous parts are made to do their duty. The piston and connecting bar of a modern locomotive weigh some 600 pounds. When the speed is sixty miles an hour these parts travel back and forth five times a second. Ten times a second, at the end of every stroke, the piston head is at rest. It must pass from this condition to a velocity of 1.800 feet per minute in one-twentieth I of a second.
