LOVELAUGHSATLAW LICENSE CLERK REFUSES MAR RIAGE PERMIT BUT DOES NOT STOP PRETTY BRIDE OLD ENOUGH TO MARRY; WORKS TELEGRAPH WIRES Minneapolis Is Gretna Green of Pearl Edgerly and George Cunningham, Whose Romance Began When They Were School Friends —Merriam Park Couple Avow Their Happiness and Independence. Cupid engaged in a brief encounter ■with the person who issues the mar riage licenses in the clerk of the court's office and won so easily that it was not worth the clerk's while to have started. Miss Pearl Edgerley, a handsome country lass, will not be eighteen years old until next month, but she loved George W. Cunningham and the day lor the wedding had been determined upon. The ceremony was to be per formed Monday evening at the home of Albert F. Shirley, friends of the couple at 641 Montgomery street. When Mr. Cunningham applied at the clerk of the court's office for a li cense the deputy clerk refused to issue the paper on the ground that the bride was not eighteen years old and the consent of her parents would have to be secured. Would Not Humor the Clerk. "The clerk made such a fuss about it." said Mr. Cunningham last even ing, "that I made up my mind not to humor him and we went to Minne apolis. A telegram from the parents of Miss Edgerley made the thing all right and a license was duly issued." The bridal party returned to the Shirley residence and the Rev. John C. Craig, of Trinity M. E. Church, at Mercians Park, was called upon to per form the ceremony. Then it was dis covered that the ceremony would have to be performed in the county in which the license was issued. This necessi tated a trip to Minneapolis and at one of the hotels in that city the ceremony occurred. Mr. and Mrs. Shirley ac companied the couple and were wit nesses to the ceremonjt Outcome of a Romance. The wedding is the outcome of a pretty little romance which began at Litthfield, Minn., two years ago. Miss Edgerley was attending the high school in her native town and Mr. Cunningham was a student at the business colhege in the same town. They met at a social function and from then on the course of true love ran smooth. Mr. Cunningham finished his course in the business college last April and then came to St. Paul, where he se cured a position as clerk at the Min nesota transfer. Miss Edgerley came :to visit the Shirley family and the couple decided to be married. "You can say we were married on Aug. 25, the day set for the wedding," said the bride as she smiled at her husband, "even if we did have some trouble in securing the license." WANT AN APPROACH TO HARRIET ISLAND West Side Citizens Ask Mayor's Approval of a Board Structure From Bridge to the Public Baths. A delegation of citizens representing the West Side Improvement association and headed by Paul Martin waited on Mayor Smith yesterday to secure his indorse ment for an appropriation which the association desires to secure for the construction of a bridge leading from the Wabasha street bridge to Harriet island.

JUDGE KELLY DEFINES NON-RESIDENTS LAW Service of Summons on Agent of Ex ecutors Is Not Sufficient Under the Statute of 1902. Judge Kelly, of the district court, yesterday construed a law passed by the last legislature relating to the service summons on non-residents, in the case of John Froehlingsdorf et al., vs. Pierre Maffitt and Charles Maffitt, as executors of the estate of Julius Maffitt. A summons with an injunction was served on J. W. Crosson, who was em ployed by the executors to collect rents on property belonging to the estate of which they were executors. The attor ney for the defendants secured an order from Judge Kelly for the appear ance of the plaintiff's attorney in court to show cause why the service should not be vacated. A law passed last winter by the legislature, which pro vides that in effect whenever a cause of action exists in favor of a citizen of this state against a non-resident en gaged in business in this state, sum mons then can be served on the agent of the non-resident, and be equivalent to personal service. Judge Kelly, in passing upon the case, said that the law does not apply, and that the non-resident executors by collecting rents are not engaged in bus iness in the state. The motion to set aside service of summons was there fore granted. FILL WAITERS' PLACES TWO LOCAL RESTAURANTS PUT COLORED MEN TO WORK. Girls Are Also Employed—Concerns Will Be Posted Unfair by Unions and Cards Removed If Employers Do Not Agree to Terms —A General Walk-Out Expected—Cooks May Join Strike. Unless an agreement is reached by next Monday at least one-half of the restaurants and cafes now displaying union cards will be listed as "unfair' houses," and the members of the Wait ers and Waitresses' union employed in them will walk out. The first step in this ' direction was taken last night when in answer to the ultimatum of the two unions for an advance in their scale the Aquarium and Germania restaurants grave a fiat refusal, and immediately proceeded to fill the places of the retiring employes with girls and colored men and boys. The others are expected to do likewise as soon as new crews can be secured. Employers Hold a Meeting. In an effort to organize the restaurant and cafe proprietors a meeting was held in one of the parlors of the Windsor ho tel last evening, but the attendance was not very heavy, and there was much di vision of opinion, the feeling being that if the employes were antagonized there would be a tie-up during fair week. It was generally agreed that if the waiters walked out the cooks would fol low, ana possibly a sympathetic strike follow on the part of the other union, with whom all of the restaurants do business more or less. Sixteen Union Restaurants. According to a list posted up at labor headquarters there are sixteen exclusive ly union restaurants in St. Paul, and of this number five at least have refused to join the others in resisting the demands of the employes. Two of these, accord ing to the statement made at headquar ters, are the Metropolitan cafe- and Coop er's restaurant, on Wabasha street. One Sixth street restaurant keeper , it is said, has arranged with a Chicago' em ployment agency to send him a crew of men. Others have taken up this scheme and it is expected Sf. Paul will be well filled with new faces when the walk-out comes. The fear of a sympathetic strike, however, is uppermost, and the members of the union say the employes will con sider twice before taking such a step. In a number of the restaurants last night the union cards were taken down. Employers Notified a Month Ago. The waiters say their demands for an advance is not exorbitant, nor has any un due advantage been taken. The restau rant keepers were notified a month ago that a new scale would be in effect on Sept. 1, they say. As for the extra de mand during fair week, the men con sider It fair in view of the fact that long XI s a£ e e/P ected and much extra work The Trades and Labor assembly last night considered the scale and gave it their indorsement. Individual unions i is said, have also taken the matter'ud and promised the waiters their aid VAN DER DANN, HERO GETS INTO THE TOILS D. F.

It was the record-breaking day of the year and the filings yester day represent a little more than one tenth of the total filings which com menced last year with M. J. Dowling's first filing for congress. Secretary Hanson, incompliance with a ruling of the attorney general's of fice, will receive certificates up to the close of business today, but the fel lows who landed yesterday were evi dently unwilling to take any chances with mandamus proceedings and got in safely beyond dispute touching the legality of the filings. The whole number of candiates filed with the secrtary of state up to the close of business last night was 126. These include candidates for the house of representatives, state senate, congress and judges of the district courts in those districts which include more than one county. The Democrats were in the majority yesterday. TJie whole number of Dem ocrats who placed their names on the ticket was eight, five for the house and three for the senate. Three Re publicans filed for the house, one Pop ulist announced himself for the same field of legislative usefulness and one Prohibitionist took a flier at congres sional honors. The several candidates and the offices they seek are as fol lows: Eight Are Democrats. Richard Norrish, Ortonville, Big Stone county, Democratic candidate for the house from the Fifty-sixth dis trict.

The Democratic central committee's headquarters will be moved from the Merchants hotel to the Gilfillan block, at Fourth and Jackson streets, adjoin ing the hotel, which has been the basis of the stirring fights for several years. Chairman Buck has secured a com modious suite of rooms on the fifth floor of the Gilfillan building and will take possession of them some time this • week, probably Friday. The committee was loath to leave the Merchants, which has been the center of the par ty's state campaign operations for years, but was obliged to move to se cure the necessary room. 'The present quarters on the third floor of the Merchants have already proved too small for even the limited work the committee now has under way and Manager Kibbe was unable to give up a larger concession on ac ocunt of the very heavy transient business of his house. GRIST OF THE POLITICAL MILL. ht Democratic headquarters at the Merchants presents a busy scene every day from early morning until evening The spirit of the campaign is abroad In the land, and prominent Democrats from over the state- are in daily consultation with Chairman Buck and his assistants. Among the party workers who were in conference^ with the leaders in St. Paul yesterday were Cyrus King, of South Haven, Wright county, secretary of the last state con vention; Levi Cochran and John Coolen of Smith Lake, Wright county, and John J. Flynn, Ellsworth, Nobles county who js a candidate for the senate in his dis trict. Karl L. Fieseler yesterday filed his af fidavit of candidacy for Democratic nomi nation to the house from that portion of the Thirty-seventh district comprising the Tenth and Eleventh wards and the country districts. Renville Chinnock yesterday filed for Republican nomination to the house of representatives in the Fifth ward end of the Thirty-fifth district. Mr. Chin nock's filing, which is generally ascribed to the influence of his partner, Senator Moses E. Clapp, saved the district from going Democratic by default. T. A. McHugh, of Grand Rapids, who yesterday filed for Democratic nomination stands well at home. The Grand Rapids Herald-Review says: "Thomas A. McHugh, superintendent of Itasca county hospital, has consented to become a candidate for the state senate from the Fifty-second district on the Dem" ocratic ticket. Mr. McHugh was very re luctant to become a candidate for the of fice, but after much persuasion from Dem ocrats all over the district he finally de cided to file his certificate with the secre tary of state and enter the race against Potter, of Aitkin. Mr. McHugh has been an active party worker for many years, and is recognized as a man well fitted for the position in every way. He will make an active campaign throughout Itasca, Aitkin, Cass and Carlton counties, and the Herald-Record predicts his election on the 4th day of next November. The Democratic legislative ticket in the Thirteenth district includes Senator Wil liam Viesselman, of Fairmont, candidate to succeed himself, and M. M. Jenkins, of Sherburne, Martin county, and Thomas Veltum, of St. James, Watonwan county candidates for the house. Senator Viesselman's record is a part of the history of the state, and he is one of the Democrats the Republicans are ready to concede re-election. M. M Jenkins is an old-line Democrat, an enthu siastic party worker, and was postmaster at Sherburne under President Cleveland He has lived in Martin county seven teen years'and is recognized as one of the county's ablestamen. Thomas Weltum Is a popular- Gemann merchant at St. James. His standing tturith the business interests of the district!is above par; the people know and trustUiim. Mr. Veltum Is looked upon as k strong candidate and his friends confidently predict his election by a handsome vote, k The Democrats 4t Winona are in the field witha legislative ticket which looks a winner even to ttoe most skeptical Re publicans. SenatonoPatrick Fitzpatrick is a candidate to suoceed himself; Joseph Leicht, the veterart editor, is the candi date in the First Eepresentative district, and John Keenan *stanUs for the house in the Second district. Senator Fitzpatrick and Joseph Leicht are known throughout the state almost as well as they are at home. Both men naive lieen long in public life and have -rendered -prodigous service both to the state and the Democratic par ty. Mr. Keenan is not so widely known over the state, but every man in Winona and Winona county knows him and ad mires him as a man of sterling integrity. Mr. Keenan has lived in Winona for many years and has been a straight-laced Dem ocrat, following his party through thick and thin. He was formerly a contractor and builder, but for several years has conducted a large livery business. DEALERS HOLD MUCH RENOVATED BUTTER Trade Is Inactive Pending the Action of the Government on Oleo Col oring. Inspector Lange, of the agricultural de partment, whose particular duties are to look after the dealers in renovated but ter, says that a larger amount of that modern commodity is in the hands of the dealers in this section than ever before. Four firms in Minnesota have taken out the government license to sell renovated butter, and three other.firms have made application for a license. There has been little doing in the ren ovated butter line owin£ to the desire of the t'ea.er^* to await the a-iicn ol th-:. --government on the proposition to allow colored oleo to be sold. Had the decision been that the sale of colored eleo was al lowable without the tax of xlO cents per pound, th<=!ii the re-uovaled butter would have been turned into oleomargarine. The decision being against the use of coloring in oleo 1, the renovated butter dealers will now commence the manufac ture of th? article. The law provides tlic.t all lenovated butter s'na'l )jj sub.'eer to a tax of of atcent per pound, and sha; be uold only wiieiT 1 iafele<l as smcii. MUCH WORK: PLANNED BOARD OF PUBLIC .WORKS WILL PUT IN A BUSY WINTER During the Dull Seasons It Will Con sider Proposals and Award Contracts for Paving and; Sewers so That Operations Can Be Commenced as Soon as the Frost Is Out of the Ground. Between street paving and sewer construction, the year of 1902 will al most approach the boom period in the '80s in the matter of municipal activity, but the board of public works purposes to make 1903 even a bigger year. Will Be Very Busy This Winter. "Winter is the dull period with the board and is generally passed by the members in cleaning up assessments remaining from work done during the preceding summer and fall, but this time the cold period will be given over to considering needed improvements and placing the contracts so that work can be commenced as soon as the frost leaves the ground. Last year hardly any construction was done before summer and in conse quence of the rush high prices had to be paid for some of the work. In the hands of the board there are now preliminary orders i for various improvements entailing an estimated expenditure of $250,000. With cold weather approaching it would be im possible to place contracts in each in stance, and have the work done this year, so instead they will be put through the usual procedure, bids re ceived, the contracts awarded and everything made ready for the mo ment favorable weather arrives in the spring. Makes Twelve Working Months. This will leave the board unham pered in its consideration of new work and allow twelve full working months instead of eight, as has been the case heretofore. One of the big jobs ta be considered next year will be the paving of East Seventh street, from H6pe to Atlantic, and West Seventh, .from Tuscarora to Fort Snelling. It is possible that the orders will be introduced and con tracts awarded so as to-allow the com mencement of work in the spring. Uni versity avenue and Gomo avenue are also to be considered. RETRIBUTIVE JUSTICE RE ACHES A SOLDIER Private Freeman, Who bet Lampllghting Prisoners Escape, Now Lights the Lamps Himself. Retributive justice has- laid a heavy hand \ipon Private Freeman, Twenty first infantry. Last Sunday he paraded along, gun upon shoulder and chest out for the delec tation of the passing fair. Four paces in front of him trudged a couple of men wearing the brown canvas coat that is the insignia of military disgrace. They were prisoners lighting or cleaning the lamps at Fort Spelling. Sunday evening Freeman let his foot slip and the prisoners got away. He fired at them, but his superiors thought he did not shoot quick enough. Yesterday Freeman was on parade again, but he no longer walked with jaunty stride and carried a rifle. He wore a brown canvas coat and. carried a torch. Behind him a guard with a'rifle. Private Freeman had fallen a victim to the stern justice of military discipline, ard was lighting lamps. SOUTH ST.

HITS COAL COMBINE STATE BOARD OF CONTROL RE JECTS ALL THE LOCAL BIDS RECEIVED CONTRACT IS AWARDED TO A CHICAGO FIRM St. Paul Dealers Lose a Chance to Sell 30,000 Tons of Fuel for Minne sota Institutions—Outside Compa nies Decline to Consider Proposi tions for the Northern District. The Minnesota state board of control gave the coal combine, which makes prices in this section of the country, a severe jolt when it contracted with a Chicago firm for 30,000 tons of soff. Some weeks ago the board advertis ed for bids for furnishing 50,000 tons of bituminous coal and 1,000 tons of anthracite. Over a score of bids were received from firms in the Twin cities and Duluth. The most remarkable thing about the bids were that the prices were all the same. This put the members of the board on their mettle and an investigation was quietly started, and the result is that the coal combine was given a knock-out blow. Awarded to Chicago Firm. The contract for 30,000 tons for the state institutions south of St. Paul was awarded to O'Gara, King & Co., of Chicago. The bids for furnishing coal to the insane hospitals at Fergus Falls, Anoka, the reformatory at St. Cloud and the normal schools at Moorhead, St. Cloud and Duluth were rejected, and unless other satisfactory arrange ments can be made by the board these institutions will be supplied with coal purchased on the open market. As usual the members of the board of control refuse to give out the price paid to the firm which was awarded the contract, but President Leavitt stated last evening that there was a substan tial saving made over the prices offered by the Minnesota firms. "There Was a Combine," Says Leavitt. "There can be but one view of the matter," said President Leavitt, "and that is that there is, or was, a com bine among the firms which submitted bids to the board. The fact that the prices were identical proves that fact conclusively. There may be a com bine in Chicago, or the freight rates north of St. Paul may be such that the Chicago firms find it impossible to do business there. "Whatever the reason is, it is a fact that the firm which secured the con tract for the 30,000 tons refused to con sider the proposition of selling us a pound of coal to come north of Has tings." The members of the board feel much elated over securing coal at a much cheaper figure than was offered by the Minnesota firms, and aside from taking a punch at the coal combine, enjoy the satisfaction of making a considerable saving on the season supply of coal. Will Be Bought in Open Market. The problem of securing coal for the institutions north of here and for the state capitol building is one which the board will take up, now that the bulk of the fuel supply has been arranged for. It is thought that perhaps some ar rangement can be made by which the remaining 20,000 tons can be secured without paying the price asked by the combine. If not, then the supply will be purchased on the open market, at such times as the board may see fit. Local coal dealers decline to state what price was made on fuel in the bids submitted to the board. WILL HOLD A FAIR TO BUILD A NEW TEMPLE Members of the Mt. Zlon Congregation Plan Many Pleasing Features for the Week of Oct. 26. The members of the Mt. Zion Fair as sociation are at work preparing for the fair which they will give at Cambridge hall the week beginning Oct. 26. The women of the congregation are en gaged in making a compilation of hun dreds of useful cooking receipes, and are preparing many original ones which are to be published in book form. The books are to be for sale at the fair. The committee having charge of the management is: B. L. Goodkind, chair man, and J. Westheimer, A. N. Rose Jo seph Elsinger, Mrs. Ambrose Guiterman, Mrs. Max Frankel, Mrs. B. Aberle J Wirth and Rev. Dr. I. L. Rypins, rabbi of the congregation.
