Railroad Men,
-— — Owing to the nervous strain to which they are
daily subjected, the physical hardships of the
-— j— constant jolting, exposure to all kinds of weather.
and irregular meals, break down in health unless
" ""—"' ™" nature is aided in the unequal struggle. Eighty
per cent of the railroad men who have been in
service any length of time are afflicted with some
form of kidney disease, and the standard remedy
in use by them is Warner's fiafe Cure.
_ ___ ___ Kindly read the subjoined testimonial from
Mr. Charles B. Ross, of 284 61st St., New
___ __ York city, a railroad conductor on the Metro
politan Railway, which is but a recent sample of
-. — hundreds of voluntary statements received by
Warner's Safe Cure Co.:

"By tha use of Warner's Safo Cure I have just recovered
from a severe attack of kidney trouble. My system was in very
bad condition. Every movement of my body caused Intense
pair., and at last I was compelled to abandon work. For four
- ——— — months several specialists doctored me, all to no benefit, but my
relief was obtained when I began taking Warner's Safe Cure.
After the use of this marvelous medicine, I was able to walk
about briskly, and In a few days was so far Improved as to be
able to attend to my work, and I haven't suffered one day since.
_ __ mmm I heartily recommend Warner's Safe Cure as the best and safest
cure that can be had."

Mr, siiunuhun'tt Letter.
State Grain Inspector Relahua has r«
colved a personal letter from J. D. Shan
ahan, Inspector of the port of Buffalo,
In answer to a letter concerning th«
statements of the latter with reference
to the methods of the Minnesota depart
ment. Mr. Shanahan Indicates that his
published interview was given under a
misapprehension of facts, and that, hav
ing been further enlightened, ho is will
ing to recall all statements reflecting
either upon the Minnesota state grain in
spector or the state Inspection depart
ment. He calls attention particularly to
the fact that the letter to a St. Paul pa
per was given with no thought of becom
ing mixed up In a political squabble and
regrets its publication. The letter reads:
"I am very glad to find that the Min
nesota chief lnsp&ctor did not say that
he believed the charges against the Buf
falo department, and 1 am very sorry
that I made such a vigorous denial of
those charges before first obtaining a,
personal denial of the statements. I
will take particular pains to bring your
communication of recent date before tha
local grain trade, and see that it is given
"In my letter to a St. Paul panar I
said nothing whatever concerning No. 2
northern or No. 3 northern Minnesota
wheat, but used the term, 'inferior
wheat.' 1 regret exceedingly that I have
done the Minnesota department an in
justice, and had it not been for your re
ported bolief in the charge ogalnat tho
inspectors of this port I would have been
disposed to defend you. 1 think you and
your department can readily understand
what such chargos as were reported to
have been made by yourself would mean
to any grain market, coming from a
sourco of much importance and recog
nized authority. I can sympathize with
you in thinking that it Is too much to
be responsible for your gi-ades after the
grain has been handled several timea In
transit to Europe. I thought, however,
that it was shortsighted to lay the blame
on any particular market without abso
lute proof that the grain was being tam
pered with.
"However, if I have done you or iha
Minnesota department any injustice, be
lieve me that I did it honestly, thinking
that It was up to me to defend the Buf
falo market from an unjust attack, and
not with the idea of pretting mixed up
in any political squabble, nor for tha
sake of hearing myself talk. I aineeroly
hope that no such misunderstanding shall
again come up to disturb the pleasant re
lations between this and the Minnesota
inspection departments.

St. Paul Council Is Working- Hani
Without Del«>Kmte» at Cleveland.
The council of Jewish women now
holding its second triennial convention
In Cleveland, 0., has a branch council
here in St. Paul known as the St. Paul
Council of Jewish Women, of which Mrs.
H. S. Haas is president. The local coun
cil is not represented this year at the
convention in Cleveland, the members
deciding that In view of the heavy de
mands that will be made lh!s spring and
summer on the treasury of th» council
for philanthropic work the money had
better be saved for that purpose. The
council was organized in Chicago during
the world's fair, and the same fall the
St. Paul branch was organized here.
There is also a council in Minneapolis.
Mrs. Emanuel Cohen, of that city, Is at
the head of the Minnesota branch. Al
though the work of the council is broad,
aiming as it does to keep the Jewish
women in touch with all that is most
modern in science, art, literature and
economics, here in St. Paul the work has
developed principally along philanthropic
lines. in 1895 the women belonging to
the council started an industrial school
for the children of the Polish Jews liv
ing over on the West side flats. The
school was held during the summer
months, the girls being taught to .sow
and the boys the rudiments of manual
training. For the nominal sum (if 5
cents each child was allowed to keep
whatever garment she made, the material
being furnished by the women. The
school has been continued every summer
since it started, and now a plan Is being
considered to enlarge it Into What will
be known as the Neighboring Hou?e. It
will combine an industrial school, a cir
culating library, a lecture room, and
possbly a creche, where working wom
en may leave ther babes knowng that
they will be cared for during their ab
sence. Although the plans for the school
are embryonic as yet, it will probably be
located on the West side, where the in
dustrial school has been kept. The
school will be opened earlier this spring
than has been customary, the women
planning to begin their work in May.
Mrs. J., Wirth, of Ashland avenue, is
chairman of the committee having tho
school in charge.

Widow of the I.ate WatMnftoa M.
Mrs. Anna K. Stees, widow of the late
Washington M. Stees, died yesterday at
her home. 388 Grand avenue, at the ad
vanced age of ninety years, fifty of which
had been spent in St. Paul. Death follow
ed an illness of but one week's duration.
The deceased is survived by one daugh
ter, Mrs. F. D. Kendrick. and a sister,
Mis. Brown, who lives in Philadelphia,
Mrs. Stees' early home.
Her husband had a furniture store in
St. Paul early in the '50s, and the hos
pitality of "Wash" and Mrs: Stees was a
tradition of the early settlement. In
deed both are mentioned favorably as
among the early hosts to entertain vis
itors to the promising com unity' of half
a century ago in the "Pen Pictures" pub

Price of Paper Has Not Been Sta

Bids for supplying the various city

being $6.47 lower than Wedelstaedt &

the contract for election stationery sup
plies, at $165.18.
The increased cost In stationery, the
bidders claim, will make the expendi
tures for stationery cost about $350
more than for the six months in 1900.

Fred Wilson, a conductor on the Seventh
street car line, was,..the victim of a sav
age assault late Sunday night, in which
he sustained a severe gash on the head
from some bfunt "instrument and was
also pounded a\nd kicked almost into in
sensibility by his assailants. Conductor
Wilson had nearly $30 in his possession
at the time he was attacked, and it Is
suspected that robbery may have been
the object of those who assaulted him.
He was able to take his car back to the
barn, but was here relieved from duty
and will be unable to take his "run" for
at least a week, so serious are his in
The assault took piace at the short line
crossing, out West Seventh street, at 11
o'clock, and was committed by two stran
gers. The men boarded the car at Sev
enth and Ramsey street. They persisted
in remaining on the platform and con
stantly crowded about the conductor.
They were either slightly intoxicated"
or feigned drunkenness, and used vile
language, as we!l as otherwise conduct
ing themselves boisterously. Conductor
Wilson several times admonished the men
to conduct themselves more quietly, but
they paid no attention to him. Finally he
threatened to put them off of the car. A
few minutes later the car stopped at the
railroad crossing, and Conductor Wilson
went on ahead to see that no trains were
approaching. Ho did not notice that the
two men left the car and followed him
into the darkness beyond the tracks. As
he turned to signal the car to proceed
the men rushed at him. Fearing they

attempted to elude them, but received a

both strangers attacked him, beating him
and kicking him about the head and b-dy.
Wilson called Xo M^otorman Radend lor

and took to their heels, leaving Wilson
bleeding in the street. When Wilson was
assisted inside of the car he was covered
with blood running fr->m an ugly gash
on the side of his head. He was slightly
dazed, but continued the trip to the end
of the line and return, when he was re

tetdo y Afternoon, to Look Upon
the Face of the Dead Before the
Funeral Today— Service* at Christ
Church Today Will He Especially
The saddest chapter of the mournful
circumstances surrounding: the death of
Rt. Rev. Mahlon N. Gilbert, bishop co
adjutor of the Episcopal diocese of Min
nesota, was closed ye3terday afternoon,
when the deceased churchman's devoted
wife was brought to St. Paul from
Farlbault, Minn., where she has lain
dangerously 111 during the period of her
husband's fatal Illness and death. Mrg.
Gilbert reached St. Paul at 5 o'clock yes
terday afternoon. She was brought from
Farlbault by a special train furnished by
the Great Western railway for the pur
The physicians decided yesterday that
Mrs. Gilbert was sufficiently recovered
to make the trip from Faribault to her
home here without danger. President A.
B. Stickney. of the Great Western, at
once volunteered his services and placed
his own private car at the disposal of
Dr. C. L. Greene, the attending physician,
and a small party of friends. The car
was taken out of St. Paul yesterday
At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon Mrs.
Gilbert, Dr. C. L. Greene, J. H. Ames,
of St. Paul, a close friend of the family; I
Mrs. B. I. Stanton, an intimate friend of
Mrs. Gilbert; Miss Wiggin, a nurse, and
the two daughters of the late bishop left
Farlbault for St. Paul. Immediately
upon the arrival of the special train
Mrs. Gilbert was taken to the family resi
dence, 18 Summit court, attended by her
physician, her daughters and the nurse.
She was still too weak to walk and show
ed traces of acute suffering. She bore
up well under the ordeal and stood the
trip even better than the physicians an
Mrs. Gilbert's illness has been one of
the saddest Incidents of the family be
reavement. Dr. Rose, who attended her
In Farlbault, was exceedingly anxious
lest the shock of her husband's death
should have fatal consequences. Late
laat night Dr. C. L. Greene wai asked
for information concerning her condition.
He did not cara to make a statement,
but intimated that at present Indications
seemed favorable. During the bishop's
illness she was unable to leave her bed,
and, confined at Farlbault, was compelled
to daily hear less and less favorable news
of him and finally of his sudden death.
At 10 o'clock the first service will be
held. This will be at the Episcopal resi
dence and private, only the family, the
officiating clergymen and a few intimate
friends being present. Dr. C. D. Andrews,
of Christ church, will be in charge of
this service, and Bishop Tuttle. of Mis
souri, will assist In reading prayers. The
service will consist of prayers only.
Following this short service the body
will be removed to Christ church. The
hearse will be followed only by the two
carriages containing the eight active
pallbearers and possibly a carriage or
two with the attending clergymen.
Teh active pallbearers are Rev. T P
Thurston, Wlnona; Rev. C. C. Rolllt Red
Wing; Rev. D. J. W. Somervllle. Austin;
Dean Slattery, Faribault; Rev. G H
Mueller. St. Paul; Rev. G. H. Ten Broeck'
Merriam Park; Rev. S. B. Purvis Min
neapolis; Rev. C. R. Taylor, Litchfleld.
These eight men, the younger clergy
men of Bishop Gilbert's diocese, will con
stitute a guard of honor at the bier dur
ing the time the body lies in state. Six
will remain always beside the bier, two
being relieved every half hour.
The catafalque upon which the casket
will rest will be placed at the head of
the main aisle, at the foot of the choir
steps. The doors will be opened at 11
o'clock, and the public will be admitted
at the front door of the church and will
be allowed to pass In single file down the
nave past the catafalque, where they
may look for the last time upon the face
of the dead bishop, and out through
the tower door.
None of those entering the church dur*
ing the time the body lies In state will
be allowed to remain there until the fu
neral service.
The crowd will pass through the.
church until 2 o'clock, when the church
will he cleared and the doors closed.
About fifteen or twenty minutes will be
allowed for the clergymen present to
look upon the dead, and then the doors
will be opened again to the public.
No seats will be reserved in the church
except for the clergy.
Just before the service at the church
the body will be removed to a position
in the middle of the chancel, where It
will rest In a mass of green ferns and
palms. The only decorations In the
church will be the purple and white
hangings, a cross of Easter lilies and a
wreath of laurel; these latter symbolizing
the resurrection and the triumph.
The service will be in charge of Bishop
Tuttle, of Missouri, who will be assisted
by Bishop Edsall, of North Dakota, and
probably Bishop Milspaugh, of Kansas,
and Bishop Nicholson, of Milwaukee; Dr.
Andrews, of Christ church.
The music will be simple and impres*
slve. R. Nelson Barber will preside at
the organ, and the vested choir will sing
the funeral anthem and the musical por
tions of the regular burial service.
A favorite hymn of Bishop Gilbert's,
"My Faith Looks T'p to Thee," will be
sung, and another hymn, which has baen
selected as particularly appropriate. Is
"I Need Thee Every Hour."

Vice Consul Dloriihy- Greeted With
Prolonged Applause—First Public
Meeting of Minnesota C'oinuilttee
of the Transvaal Wa.r Relief Fund
—Xo Taxation Without Reisresen
The Hags of Great Britain and America
mingled their folds last evening over thj
platform of Y. M. C. A. hall, where ihvj
admirers of Tommy Atkins had gathered
to testify to their appreciation. It was
the first public meeting held under the
auspice.-) of the Minnesota committee of
the Transvaal war rellof fund, and the*
hall wan crowded to its utmost capacity
with the enthusiastic Britons. Chairman
Ben Davied, of the committee, presided,
and, besides patriotic songs, there worv:
addresses by E. 11. Morphy, British vice
consul; Rev. A. B. Meldrum and Dr. Alex
Chairman Davlea explained the purpose
of the meeting and of the organization
aa being to aid the widows and orphans,
the sick and wounded and the wives ard
the families of British soldiers temporarily
in distress. Then Secretary George R. T.
Hart read tho minutes of the two pre
vious meetings of the committee, and t bo
chairman intrcducad Vice Consul Motphy.
who was greeted with prolonged applause.
He said in part:
"It may be considered by some an im
pertinence for us to gather together to
express ourselves on the Issues of this
war. To American citizens this war is
a foreign war with which they have noth
ing to do. But, as Britons, we may gath
er to aid to the best of our abiliiy the
men and their families that have sulT. re-1
through this war. I want to congratu
late you upon the dignified stand you
have takon in so long remaining Bilent,
despite the misconceived outbursts that
have been indulged In by others.
"But, no matter what we may think of
the economics of the question, that has
no place here tonight. We have gatnetetl
to appeal to you on behalf of the desti
tute and suff. ring. Whatever may haye
been the mistakes of the government or
the generals, Tommy Atkins Is nor to
blame. It is for his wives, his widows
and his children that we appeal lo you
"One cannot say anything against .he
brave little people that are Ughting f >i
what they believe to be their rights, bur
the time has gone past when people can
have taxation wiihout representation."
Mr. Morphy's speech was liberally punc
tuated by applaus?. He was followed by
A. A. McKechnle, treasurer of the com
mittee, who spoke of the encouraging re
ception that had been met with both In
Minneapolis and St. Paul, a tribute to
"the splendid, dogged courage of Tommy
Thomas Boyd sang "So diers of th?
Queen," and received an encore. The aa
dience joined heartily in the chorus. He
was succeeded by Miss Olive Morphy, a
daughter of the vice consul, who recited
Kipltng's "Absent-Minded Beggar. 1" Ms .
Morphy received almost an ovation, and
when, at tho close, -she passed down th<
aisles with a tambourine, the sliver dol
lars and greenbacks poured in so last
that she was compelled to pour out the
money on the treasurer's table and make
a second trip.

Brigade," and then Dr. A. B. Me!drun»
was introduced and greeted wtth ap
plause. He said in part:
"I deem it a privilege to declare to my
fellow citizens of St. Paul that I atlll
believe in my mother. One thing that
has made me proud of my brothers and
sisters Is the splendid self-restraint that
they have exercised under great provo
cation. I am alisast ashamed to break the
record of self-respecting silence that you
have shown; but, while considering it be
neath my manhood to deny some of tho
baseless allegations that have been pub~
licly made, I want to go on record as re
pudiating some of the things that luiva
been said by men in high office and men
who would like to be.
"I do not believe that any foreign-born
citizen needs to emphasize his Ameri
canism by assuming an attitude of Ihm
■ tlllty towards the land of his birth. I«
the depths of my heart I believe that
England is right. I have been an Amert*
can citizen for seventeen years and dur
ing that time I do not believe Übtai my
Americanism has ever bff.n under mis
plcion. I have never been In the police
court, never have been taken out >ji
saloon and never waved either ilit- i
flag or the green. There is one Raff
for mt—the Stars and Stripes. I am
here as an American citizen, with the
full conviction that the land of my birth
is fighting today the battle of human
Rev. Alexander McGregor, the i
speaker, wa9 preceded by Mr. Harbour,
who sang "The Death of Nelson."
"When I have thought of the mag
nificent sacrifices that the land at my
birth is making for civilization and
liberty I have tried to be patient th^sa
six months and I can hardly keep bot
tled up any longer," said Dr. McGregor.
"America and England wero never BO
near each other as now. lam not a con
sul and I am not looking for any posi
tion. I am a settled preacher on tha
hill. Consequently I can say what I
think as an American citizen."
Dr. McGregor spoke of the reflections
cast upon Britain by "the newspapers and"
people with light heads" and dwelt on
the services rendered In the cause of civ
ilization by his native Scotland."
The meeting closed with another pa
triotic song by G. jL 8. Collins.
