The Andrew Schoch Grocery com pany has informed Health Commis sioner Ohage that it is willing to take up the Gedney Pickling company's West side levee lease, pay the owners a fai sum of money for the plant and factory, pay the city an annual rental of $1,000 a year instead of $1, the sum now received, and renounce all rights to the spur track now in the rear of the factory. This announcement l)r. Ohage yes terday made to Dr. J. G. McNamara and E. H. Wood, representing the West Side Improvement association, both of whom the doctor had invited to a conference relative to an amicable set tlement of the problem of the public bath approaches referred to at the meeting of the assembly Thursday evening. Dr. Ohage further announced that Mr. Schoch had informed him that Jf a satisfactory absorption of the lease were secured, all Mr. Gedney's ■present employes would bu retained, and instead of fifteen persons, an agreement would be made with the city to employ twenty-five or more. The factory, he said would, under the Schoch control, be a St. Paul institu tion rather than a branch of a Minne apolis firm, as it Is now termed and advertised by the company. The conference between Dr. Ohage and the West Side representatives was quite lengthy and the situation throughout was gone over in detail. It ■was in every way dispassionate. Dr. Ohage said he simply desired a safe approach to the island, and with the spur track there he did not think it could be obtained. This he desired removed, the erection of a suitable fence parallel with the main tracks of the Omaha and a flagman stationed constantly at the bridge entrance which the main tracks cross. Willing to Drop Condemnation. As to the condemnation of the block containing the four factories, Dr. Ohage announced his willingness to drop the matter, provided the owners aided him in having the spur track taken out. The removal of this spur track, how ever, he would insist on; also the an nulment of the Gedney lease. If this ■was done he would immediately pro ceed to Improve the tract of ground lying between the factories and the main tracks, provide steps and give a decent approach to the island. The cost to the city he considered would be trifling. Through it all, the West side repre sentatives listened attentively and seemed much impressed. Both in formed the doctor that while they had the best interests of the West side at heart they were also deeply interested in the island, and they were willing to agree to anything that would bring about'W adjustment. Bdth' promised to visit the other factory owners and see if they could not secure their'con sent towards obtaing the removal of the spur track. The Omaha road, it is understood, Is willing to pull it up, provided the factory owners are will ing. They now have directly across the street from their places of bus iness a freight depot and a number of tracks. Bridge Would Be Costly. During the discussion, a bridge from the Wabasha street structure to the island was proposed by the West side representatives, and Bridge Engineer Edmonstone was called in to tell what he knew of its feasibility. He said it could be built, but the cost would be heavy, probably about 575,000. He thought the grade would Pale.

M»m. be too heavy and considered the plan a poor one. Yesterday Dr. Ohage received from the Chamber of Commerce at letter offering its services in bringing about an amicable adjustment and asking if such was in sight. Dr. Ohage re plied that it seemed possible, and thanked it for its offer. The opinion is general that the con troversy over the clogging of the ap proaches to the baths will be adjusted shortly. Dr. Ohage seems to be mas ter of the situation, and while not ob taining all that he originally asked for, will practically come out of the fray with flying colors. Secretary Wood and Dr. McNamara say the West Side Improvement association is anxious for an early adjustment and is willing to concede anything in rea son and that will enhance the inter ests of both their section of the city and the public baths. TWO MEN HURT IN A WRECK NEAR ELKTON Martin Osgard, a Fireman, and Thom as Jones, a Printer, Sustains Se rious Injuries. Martin Osgard, a Great Western fireman living at 420 Starkey street, was severely scalded, and Thomas Jones, a printer, was badly bruised in a Great Western Wreck which oc curred yesterday afternoon near Elk ton, Minn., a small station about 100 miles from St. Paul. Engineer S. Wheaton jumped from his cab and es caped with slight injuries. The wrecked train was a special freight and was running at a high rate of sp^ed, when it struck a switch. The engine and thirteen cars left the track and piled up in a heap in the ditch. Osgard was caught in the cab and was severely scalded by escaping steam. He also sustained several se vere bruises about the body. Thomas Jones is a printer, who was on his way from Chicago to St. Paul. He was in a car load of coal at the time of the accident. When the car jumped the track, Jones was battered about the interior of the car. His head was cut in several places and his right shoulder was dislocated. A re lief train left St. Paul shortly after the accident occurred and brought the injured persons back. Osgard was taken to his home and Jones went to the city hospital. The remainder of the train crew were not injured. Later in the evening Osgard was re moved form his home to St. Joseph's hospital, as his injuries were discov ered to be more serious than first sup posed. The upper portion of his body is badly scalded, and the hospital au thorities say that his condition is se rious. The exact extent of his in juries cannot be determined at pres ent, as they will not develop for a couple of days. FIVE SUSPECTS ARE , NOT THE RIGHT MEN Police Are Convinced That McHenry Was Not Implicated in Train Robbery. George McHenry, suspected of being implicated in the Burlington train rob bery, was brought into the police court yesterday morning, and a charge of trespassing placed against him. He was then taken back to the county jail. John E. Mooney, the Burlington en gineer who claims to be able to rec ognize one of the robbers, was to have arrived in St. Paul yesterday afternoon to look over the suspects held in the county jail, but he did not come, how ever, as there is not much credence given to the suspicion that the five men were in any way connected with the gang. The police and detectives ridtctrte'tfre-Mea that robbers of the caliber that held up the Burlington would try to beat their way into St Paul on a freight train. It is generally supposed in police circles that the gang robbing the train was under the lead ership of "Butch" Cassidy, who is sup posed to be the man that held up the Northern Pacific in Montana two years ago. The five suspects in the '<«linty jail will probably have a trial for tres passing Tuesday, and no further action will be taken against them. It was learned yesterday that McHenry is well known in lowa City, lowa, and that he was there the night of the robbery. HE SUES FOR INJURIES CAUSED BY FALLING FLOOR John Nelson Asks for $5,150 From Mc- Cormick, Behnke & Co. John Nelson has commenced an ac tion in the district court against Mc- Cormick, Behnke & Co., to recover $5 - 150 damages for injuries alleged to have been received on Feb. 5, 1902 while he was in the employ of the com pany. The plaintiff alleges that he was at work on the second floor of the com pany's warehouse, and that the bulk of goods on the floor was too heavy for the supports, and as a result the floor gave way, carrying him down to the first floor, together with the bales and bundles, injuring his knee and inflict ing other injuries. —-•»— __ Increases Its Capital.

According to the receipts on Com mission Row these warm days, St. Paul is consuming about four carloads, oi an average of 6,000 melons a day. True, some of the succulent fruit finds its way to the rural districts, say the commission men, but the number is so small that the Saintly City can be credited with nearly the entire amount. The melons that St. Paul is consum ing just now are freighted from Kan- ■BBS"*"*'!*'■'*'■'•"■■■ ■'''"■* " ' j#*-'^fc<ii ' ' -■.--■'•:■-'•''--'-*v:/--''''--»B^K^^MBB^ffrSH^^^^sl l-'W' ■': ■■■ ■.-.- ■*"~"*-lv'^" i~T.'"_ - '.■ "*?3PRj'^'^B t *.-■.-' ''■'■■ r ■'■ - - w*Jt^iffi3*^ ■■■■..- ■ T fIS^L^S^ 1^v ■* % fc-""* -*■%.'■ v»*r t'irt*S -" .'-..--n—' *'^ ■ ''' T^ «i BBSS' *• -^■f*^'-^^*'^i9^TSß^^3 sas, Missouri and Indiana. The latter state furnishes the most, for it is there that they grow the best and in the largest number. This may not meet the approval of the average lover of watermelon, who has been wont to associate this refreshing edible with the Sunny South, but it is a fact that one portion of the Hoosier state, the southern part, raises more watermel ons than any state in the Union. Jack son county in that state, a near neigh bor to Posey county of hoop-pole fame, is the center of the industry and nets its farmers per acre more than the far-famed wheat fields of the North west. If it is a Jackson county melon it is all right, and it is this brand of fruit that St. Paul is whetting its ap petite on just.

The cars used are the ordinary stock car, because of the ex tra amount of ventilation they pro vide and each contains from 1,200 to 1,500 melans.__ For all St. Paul is doing its share in exchanging coin of the realm for this edible of half fruit and half vegetable, BUSY MELON EATERS. and providing the grower'with a com-' petence after his season of toil and of labor, the consumption has not reach ed the point that the fruit is to be found on every table in the Saintly City.

To be brief, St. Paul is pay ing 5 to 10 cents more for every melon it consumes this year than it did last. Labor costs more and the people have more money is the answer you will get if the commission man is asked to ex plain. The man he buys the fruit from demands more and he has to ask mora when he retails them. This is one of the reasons the street gamin has cut the fruit from his daily menu. When he does manage to locate one it is con sidered a treat and his pals are duly impressed with his importance. Unlike St. Louis and other cities along the Mason and Dixon line, St. Paul is not equipped with a water melon exchange. The cars of fruit arrive at the depot and their receipt is heralded by the commission wagons who, with a man to count the, fruit and keep an eagle eye on the street arabs, who hover near with watering mouths, load them up and take them to the refrigerating rooms, to await de mands from the grocers and those who retail them. It will be fully two weeks before the home-grown melon appears in the market. While the crop is as large as it generally is, its arrival will not cause any appreciable drop in the price. Some consider the home melon of bet ter flavor and for this reason a little more is asked for each. In size, how ever, it does not compete. While the commission men handle them, the ped dlers sell the mdst, as it is the product of their own land, and' they want the benefit of the profit the commission man makes. DOUGLAS' VIEW OF THE NEW PRIMARY LAW Modifies His Previously Expressed Opinion—How Republicans May Vote. Attorney General Douglas recently gave an opinion as to the rights of an elector to vote at the primary election for the candidacy of a party other than the one he was affiliated with at the last election. In answer to an inquiry from James Martin, chairman of the Republican committee, the at torney general yesterday modified, or as he expressed it, "made more clear" the rights of the electors to vote for the Republican candidates. The latest opinion of the attorney general is that a person who voted for the Democratic candidate for governor and congressman, but who supported all or substantially all the other can didates on the Republican ticket, is entitled to receive and vote the Re publican ballot at the primary. The opinion of the attorney general sent to Chairman Martin was as fol lows : "You inquire specifically as to whether a person who voted for a Democratic candidate for governor (and also possibly for congress) at the last general election, but who af filiated with and supported all or sub stantially all of the other candidates of the Republican party upon the state and national ticket, is entitled to re ceive and vote the Republican ballot at the coming primary election. "Replying, I have to say that, in my judgment, under such circum stances the elector is entitled to re ceive a Republican ballot and partici pate in nominating the candidates of the Republican party, provided, of course, such voter states that 'he pro posed to affiliate at the next general election' with the Republican party. "In other words, if a person asserts at the primary election that he in tends to affiliate with the Republican party at the ensuing election and de clares that he affiliated with the Re publican party and 'generally sup ported' (to use the language of the statute) its candidate at the last gen eral election, he is entitled to receive the party ballot. "In a doubtful case, I am inclined to the view that such an elector may vote the ballot of any party with which he has heretofore affiliated, pro vided he supported a majority of its candidates at the last general elec tion, and asserts that he intends to affiliate with such party at the en suing general election." MRS. TURNER ACQUITTED OF CHARGE OF CRUELTY Evidence Disproves Accusation That She Struck Her Stepdaughter. Mrs. Bessie Turner, colored, 320 Farrington street, was discharged in the police court yesterday on a charge of cruelty to her eight-year-old step daughter Bernice. The warrant for her arrest was sworn out' by Humane Agent Moak. The case was tried at length and several witnesses, all col ored, and who lived in the neighbor hood of the Turners, were examined. They were Mrs. Emma Adams, Mrs. Georgia Stanton, Mrs. Stella Smith and MiBS Zara Wright. Dr. Porter testified that in his opinion the injury to the girl's eye was caused by an in sect and not by a blow, as was charg ed.

PAUL BY DETECTIVES THE STOLEN PLUNDER IS IDENTIFIED BY LOSERS Their Connection With the Colored Trio, Jackson, Brown and Franklin Is Fully Established—Police Claim to Have a Clear Case Against All of the Quintette. Detectives Frazer and Lavalle re turned from Chicago yesterday with Lulu Foster and Clara Banks, white women supposed to have been impli cated in the burglaries for whicH three '•olored men, "Lefty" Jackson, Marion Brown and Mack Franklin, are under arrest at the Central station. The de tectives brought back two trunks full of plunder, a considerable portion of which has already been identified. The police as yet have but two trunks in their possession, as one of the women swallowed the baggage check as soon as arrested, and it will be necessary to go through some legal process be fore the railroad will release the third trunk. Lulu Poster was arrested under the name of Allie Jackson and claims .to be "Lefty" Jackson's wife. She is said by the police to be one of the most no torious female crooks in the country. When arrested by the Chicago detec tives, her identity was not established. Detective Frazer recognized her the moment he entered the Harrison street station. Valuable Plunder Found. When the trunks were searched at the Central station twenty gold watches, sealskin sacques, pins, jew elry of all kinds and a considerable amount of female apparel was discov ered. John C. Shea, of the Colonnade hotel, identified his watch and some pins, which were taken from his flat a couple of weeks ago. Fred De Wilde, whose room in the Windsor hotel was robbed last Monday night, identified his watch. Belle Gordon, 147 West Third street, identified one of the seal skin sacques. A considerable portion of the jewelry found in the trunks is said to belong to Nellie Bryant, of Min neapolis. The police believe that the plunder already recovered will reach a valua tion of $2,500, with another trunk yet to be searched. By far the greater part of the goods recovered belongs to Minneapolis residents, as the quin tette has been operating there for many months past. Allie Jackson, alias May Clark, alias Lulu Foster, was tried for murder in Chicago eight years ago, but was ac quitted. She was accused of killing- Allen Joyce, a colored man, and the case was a sensational one for some time. The Jackson woman claimed the killing was done by Stella King, In other respects she has a long record of crime in many of the larger cities of the country. Little is known of the other woman, except that in 1899 she was .living at her home in a small town in Illinois. During 1900 she went to Chicago, where she was employed as a waitress in a restaurant, where she be gan her career. Came Back Willingly. Both women agreed to come to St. Paul without extradition papers, al though they were advised by their friends to make a fight. The Jackson woman claims the reason she waived her rights was that the women's de partment of the Harrison street station in Chicago was not clean enough. The five prisoners will have a pre liminary hearing in the police court Monday, by which time the complaint will have been made out and filed. Shea and De Wilde yesterday served garnishment papers on Chief O'Connor to recover the money found on "Lefty" Jackson and Allie Jackson. Each had $121 sewed up in their wearing apparel. Shea lost $76 in cash and De Wilde lost $96. The police maintain that they have a clear case against all the prisoners and Chief O'Connor is well satisfied with the work. Although little was said about it, the police began to work dili gently immediately after the report of the first burglary in St. Paul. Now that the gang has been entirely round ed up, they feel that it will be some time before any "porch climbers" and second-story workers" will invade the town. REGISTER KICKS ON THEIR ASSESSMENTS St. Paul Trust Company and Owners of Lowry Arcade En ter Protests. The board of equalization held a short session yesterday morning and considered a few petitions, the most important of which was the application* of the St. Paul Trust company, as trustee of Mary E. Baker, one of the heirs of Norman W. Kittson. As trus tee, the company owns lots 2 to 33 in clusive in Hull & Brown's addition to Hyde park, formerly known as Mid way. The property is assessed at $22, --350, or at the rate of $900 an acre. In its petition the company protested that $500 an acre was plenty high enough, as the land cannot be sold for more than that figure. The applica tion was taken under advisement. J. F. Conklin was' present and ob jected to an increase of $18,000 this year on the property known as the Lowry arcade. The property was as sessed at $342,900 in 1900, and this year at $360,600. Mr, Conklin objected to the increase on the ground that the property is not worth any more this year than it was in 1900. District Epworth League. The St. Paul District Epworth league cabinet held a meeting yesterday after noon in the Y. M. C. A. rooms. Those present were: President .Carl F. Miller, of Hamline; Vice President P. S.

At no time in the history of disease has there been such an alarming in crease in the number of cases of any particular malady as in that of kidney and bladder troubles now preying upon the people of this country. Today we see a relative, a friend or an acquaintance apparently well, -and in a few days we may be grieved to learn of their serious illness or sudden death, caused by that fatal type of kidney trouble—Bright's disease. Kidney trouble often becomes ad vanced into acute stages before the af flicted is aware of its presence; that la why we read of so many sudden deaths of prominent business and professional men, physicians and others. They have neglected to stop the leakin time. While scientists are puzzling their brains to find out the cause, each indi vidual can, by a little precaution, avoid the chances of contracting dreaded and dangerous kidney trouble, or eradicate it completely from their system if al ready afflicted. Many precious lives might have been, and. many more can yet be saved by paying attention to the kidneys. It is the mission of The Globe to benefit its readers at every opportu nity and therefore we advise all who have any symptoms of kidney or blad der trouble to write today to Dr. Kil mer & Co., Binghamton, N. V., for a free sample bottle of Swamp-Root, the celebrated specific which is having such a great demand and remarkable suc cess in the cure of the most distressing kidney and bladder troubles. With the sample bottle of Swamp-Root will also be sent free a pamphlet treatise of valuable information. Don't make any mistake, but remem ber the name, Swamp-Root, Dr. Kil mer's Swamp-Root, and the addres3, Binghamton, N. V., on every bottle.
