CITY BALLOT AS MADE UP

City Clerk Jensen yesterday afternoon
made up a sample of the official ballot
and forwarded it to the printer. The
sample ballot will be posted in -the city
clerk's office this morning at 9 o'clock,
and shortly after that hour application
will be made to the district court for a
correction of the ballot. The applica
tion will demand that the names of the
certain candidates alleged to have been
nominated by a handful of persons un
der the direction of a certain element
of the Republican party and labeled
"Democrats" be stricken from the official
There was some difficulty In the making
up of the ticket by City Clerk Jensen,
and it Was not until after he had con
ferred with one F. G. B. Woodruff and
Corporation Attorney Markham several
times that the ticket was finally adjusted
to suit the trio.
The city clerk displayed both partisan
ship and trickery in the make-up of the
official ballot, I'mier the law Chester R.
Smith was ewtkled- to^flrst place on the
ballot. The second place should have
been given to Robert A. Smith, the nom
inee of the Democratic convention, but
the placing of Robert A. Smith in the
proper place the Republicans feared
would injure the chances of the nominee
of the grand old party, and the name of
J. M. Pottgieser, who had filed a nomina
tion for mayor, by petition, was given
the second place on the ticket, and fol
lowing his name was placed the word
"Democrat," for what reason, and by
what right, Jensen fails to make plain.
The third place on the ticket was giv
en to Robert A. Smith, the nominee of
the Democratic convention. Following
were the names of H. G. Neal, Henry
carling and William Thomas, represent
ing the Prohibitionist, Socialist-Labor,
and Mid-Road Populist parties, respect
The nominating certificates of the can
didates placed in nomination by the Dem
ocratic convention were filed in the city
clerk's office March 26, and, under the
election law, should have been placed on
the ticket immediately under candidates
named by the; Republican convention, if
for rid other reason than that of priority
of filing-. There was an opportunity here,
however, for the city clerk to display his
partisanship, and backed up by the opin
ions of F. G. B. Woodruff and Corpora
tion Attorney Markham, City Clerk Jen
sen deliberately gave second place to J.
M. Pottgieser, whose nomination cer
tificate was not filed until the last day
required under the law for such filing.
Early In the afternoon Corporation At
torney Markham gave the city clerk an
opinion to the effect tha.t the candidates
named for the assembly and aldermanlc
body by the Bell coterie could not have
places on the official ballot for the rea
son that the law did not allow original
nominations to be made by any commit
tee, but only in cases where vacancies
were to be filled after conventions had
There was a deliberate attempt to strike
from the ticket the name of Frank J. j
liuber, the Democratic candidate for
alderman in the Fourth ward, and had
not the attention of the attorneys on the
Democratic executive committee been
called to rthe opinion of the legal adviser
of the city the question would have had ]
to be taken into the courts to rectify
the error. In terms and language of the

DEMOCRATS TURN OUT AT THE
GRAftt) RALLY LAST
UNITED PARTY WILL WIN
Votem of the Ward OpjioMed to Re
pnbllcnn Mlnrnle, and Will
Give Robert A. Smith
Democrats of the First ward assembled
at a grand rally in the hall at 495 Brad
ley street last night. The hall, large
enough to accommodate several hundred
persons, was much too small for the as
semblage, and there was not sufficient
standing room for those who desired to
hear the speakers.
Edward Peterson, an attache of the
state labor commissioner's office, was
first introduced by the chairman of the
ward organization. Mr. Peterson said:
"There is one thing to which 1 desire to
call your particular attention, and it Is
that the city of St. Puul has never in
dorsed Republican misrule. It has al
ways been an accident that Republicans
get into power in this city. 'Either
through a split or Internal warfare In
the Democratic party or the perfidy of
some irresponsible, alleged leader. Tne
Republicans never won a victory on their
merits, for the simple reason that they
never earned merit in the administration
of the city's affairs. Without saying
anything against the honesty of such '
Republicans as Wright, Doran and Kief- j
er, we are ready to say that anyone or I
all of them are better men for the of- I
lice they-tilled than the present nominee
of the Republican machine. In order to
make a fitting end of the farce, we will,
to use a baseball term, on Monday next
say, 'three times and out' in ridding the
city of Republican incompetents." (Ap
Attorney T. J. McDermott was the next
speaker. He talked earnestly and kept
his auditors interested. He said:
"I want to express first my gratifica
tion at seeing such a large crowd and
the interest you are manifesting in this
campaign. It demonstrates the fact that
you are alive to securing the best govern
ment obtainable for the city, and that
you are appealing to the right political
party to secure that Teatly desired end.
To prove that statement is not mere idle
boast or an understudied statement I
want to call your attention to the fact
that the city of St. Paul grew from com
parative commercial oblivion to her pres
ent prominence in the Northwest while
Democrats were at the head of municipal
"In making our choice of candidates
for who we will vote this time we must
judge the future by the past accomplish
ments of either party as municipal gov
ernors. The great public works of St.
Paul were nearly all designed and con
structed under Democratic regime in the
city government, and when It is consider
ed how rapid the growtn and how difficult
the work of construction has been, the
Democratic party can point with no small
degree of pride to its work.
"During all the time that the Demo
cracy was in power and these great mu
nicipal works were in course of comple
tion, when millions of the people's money
were passing through the hands df pub
lic officials yearly, not one obligation of
dishonesty or theft was alleged against
the Democratic officials. The Republicans
for lack of campaign material, have tried
to make capital out of the building of the
high bridge"that was built during one of
Mayor Smith's administrations We think
the high bridge Is a good thing in a com
mercial way for St. Paul, and that It has
paid for itself over and over again.
"We have nominated a man who has been
mayor of the city three times, yet such
is the record and enmities 6t Republi
can mayors that they have never once
dared to renominate one of their mayors
for re-election to that office. The silk
stocking element of the Republican party
always controls the._r»iayor when that
party is successful, and.the rank and
rile of the party are not pleased with
the condition. While always chosen as a
Democrat, Mayor Smith was always
mayor for all of the people, and not for
some exclusive faction, set or coterie of '
hill dwellers who wanted to dodge
taxes." ■'0 6 ,
C. M. Brewer, candidate for justice of
the peace, made a short address, and was I
followed by Charles Ferres, the ward j
candidate for alderman.
Hl» Attitude Against the Charter
May Help Sent,
To the Editor of the Globe:
What is the reason a certain office
holder "who has an ax to grind at the
city's grindstone" is opposed to the adop
tion of the new charter?
Mr. McCardy, open your baailiskian face
and let the voters know why you are
against the new charter? Make it in |
plain language, so that common ordinary I
voters need not have your oracle explain
ed after the election. Do you oppose the
adoption of the new charter for the rea
son you, under its provisions, cannot dis
tribute patronage to your friends in the
shape of "special sales" of tax certifi
cates, etc., etc.? Or do you oppose it be
cause the new charter would irrevoca
bly make you the bookkeeper of the city
instead of the high mogul you now are?
But, my Republican friend, read the !
handwriting on the wall. You are doom- j
cd. Your own party workers will vote '
against you. You and the rest of your
ticket will be buried whether we will have
a snow fall or not. —C. E. N.

EIGHTH WARD DEMOCRATS WANT
NOT CHESTER R. SMITH
WEILERS HALL WARMED UP
One of the Old-Time Gathering*.
Afire With Enthusiasm, Was
Held There La»«t
There was another of those old-time
Democratic demonstrations in the Eighth
last evening, and "Weiler's hall. Univer
sity and Dale was so filled with advo
cates of honest government that all thj
chairs in the neighborhood couldn't pro
vide for the comfort of the audience
which gathered. Standing room was at
a premium, and during the two hours in
which the meeting was in session even
the hallways and rostrum were Jammed
with voters anxious to record their ap
plause in favor of the ticket headed by
Robert A. Smith.
Chairman Qulnn smiled with gratifica
tion as he opened the meeting, and pi ne
ed a few hot shots where they would do
the most good. E. O. Ivcs was introduc
ed, and for half an hour held the atten
tion of the audience with a graphic res
ume of the past Republican administra
tions as compared with those under Dem
ocratic rule. The applause whs contin
ued and enthusiastic. The appearance of
Matt Bantz was greeted with n round of
cheers, and the little tailor of the Eighth
demonstrated his place in tho ranks of
the working class; am? received every as
surance of their earnest *<iigp'»i-;.
Frank Baer came over from the Sixth
with .words of good < nee-, and his story
of continued success there occasioned an
other whirlwind of enthusiasm. He made
a forceful speech,'' though brief, in which
he arraigned the mistakes' of the Wright-
Doran-Kiefer succession in a caustic
manner. Thos. F. Martin, a:i old cam
paigner in the Eighth, spoke-.to the point j
for fifteen minutes, and impressed on th*
voters the keen necessity of hard work |
during the remaining week txC the tight. :
He predicted the election of Robert A. '
Smith with 3,000 majority, and the men- j
tion of the name brought an ovation toy j
the ticket. Louis Betz, the next c6mp ; j
troller, arrived late, but in time to mike j
an excellent ten-minute talk. P. L. Me- >
j Ghee went after the ChetsndSth boom, and
left it in need of a round half dozen
"Three times the Eighth has had to
fight the organized action to.plaea a fast
express service on University avenue, ani
put four tracks instead of two where the
present line is. Every man of you
knows the effort we have.had to make
to save this street, and every man know.s
the necessity of the fight. Chet omith U
vaunted as an Eighth ward man.
"Where was he during these threa
fights? Who ever heard him argue
against the proposed action to give the
Twin City Rapid Transit company the en
tire earth? Not a man here. C. R. Smith
was vice president of the Jobbers union,
which made it an object to go before th »
council with a recommendation that the
privilege be granted."
For three minutes the audience ap
plauded until the sound could be heard
a mile away. Jcs. Harris made a stiaiuht- |
forward argument in favor of the ticket,
and William Foelsen closed the session
with a characteristic campaign address.

Little <hrlf»ten«en While on Duty
I'iis.HJiii; Out Chet Smith Cur da.
John Chrlstensen, who weara the title
of "detective" because there is no law
against anybody being called a "detec
tive" whom the chief of pdlice wants to
designate as such, is dally making him
self ridiculous in the eyes of those who
know him. Instead of trying to run
down some of the light-fingered gentle
men, crooks, or the confidence men, or
some of the other lav/breakers in St.
Paul, he spends a greater part of his
time trying to help elect Chet Smith.
A number of instances in which the
little fellow has been making hlmßelf
ridiculous has been reported to the
Globe, and if any of them reached
Mayor Kiefer's ears he would probably
tell theJlttle fellow to keep busy in some
other way than that which he employs.
Last night capped the climax. With a
new white hat on and a cane as long as
himself, the little fellow stood on the
corner of Robert and Seventh streets for
nearly an hour, passing out great big
cards of Chet Smith.
A crowd gathered around and guyed
him, but he kept on shoveling out tickets.
"You might keep that up for two
years," he was told, "and you couldn't
make one vote for Chet Smith."
"Who sent you down here?" asked an
"You had better go home," remarked a
third, "and figure out what you are go
ing to do after June 1."
Finally the little fellow ran out of cards
and went up the street.
WILY TURK SEEKS COVER
SAYS UNITED STATES MIST TAKE
PJLACE IST L,l\E.
WASHINGTON, April 23.—The state de
partment has ree-eived, through Lloyd
Griaconi, the United States charge at
ConstinopTej the reply of the Turkish
sovernment to the latest representation?
of the United States touching the AmerK
can missionary claims. The communica
tion was taken to the "White house by
Secretary Hay, and presumably was con
sidered by the cabinet at the special
meeting today. Mr. Strauss, the United
States minister to Turkey, who has come
over from New York for the purpose of
conferring with the department affecting
these claims, called at the state depart.
j ment today and talked over the last
i Turkish note with Secretary Hay before
the cabinet meeting.
The secretary made no public statement
regarding- the Turkish note, beyond the,
mere announcement that it was inconclu
sive and left the subject still op.ni for
discussion. It was gathered that the brief
outiiie of the Turkish response eabien
from Constantinople, to the effect that the
American claimants must take their posi
tion along with those of other nations,
does not convey accurately th» tenor of
the whole not*, though it is admitted
that it does set out properly on% portion
PARIS, April 23.—The Temps today pub
lishes a long article on the Turklsh-
Americsh situation, reviewing the circum
stances In a manner quite friendly to the
United States and expressing confidence
that Turkey will pay the .indemnity de
manded by the United States. Referring
! to the alleged intention of the Unite.l
i States to occupy Smyrna, In defaut of
I payment, the Temps says:
"The United States would not perhaps
be sorry to display a Mttle before the eyes
not only of the sultan, but of entire
Europe,, the newly acquired glitter of
their navy, crowned with the laurels of
j Cavite and Santiago. The occupation of
I Smyrna would be no joke, and there is
j ground to hope that Abdul Hamld will
>cc the madness of resistance which,
j for such a trivial object, would bring
j about such serious results."
