Four hundred jolly drummers met in Elks' hall last night to celebrate their ninth annual party.

Martin Peterson, 165 Como avenue, an employe of the Great Northern, had a narrow escape from a terrible death at the Como avenue yards yesterday. ' He attempted to squeeze into the round house between the door jamb and a locomotive which was entering. He was caught in the narrow spa*je and pinned to the wall. His cries at tracted the attention of the engineer, who stopped the engine in time to save the man's life. Peterson was taken to St. Joseph's hospital. His right hip was crushed and he sustained internal injuries. Former Consul General Dead. ROME, Dec. 27.—Former United States Consul General W. R. Jones died here suddenly today of heart disease.

The bronze medal awarded to St. Paul by the directory of the Paris exposition, crediting St. Paul with be ing the healthiest city in the world, and its mortality the lowest, is highly Treasurer—Capt. W. H. Hart, of St. Paul. These were the officers elected by acclamation at the twenty-third meet ing of the Minnesota National Guard association which was held at the capi tol yesterday. In the neighborhood of 100 of tht commissioned officers of the state guard attended the session and there was quite a display of uniforms with out sword attachments. Gov. Vant Sant made an address in which he promised that he would re appoint Adjutant General Libbey and informed the officers that nothing would give him greater pleasure than to lead the Minnesota brigade to the St. Louis exposition. Just where the money for the trip of the- brigade was to come from the commander-in-chief did' not ,say, but later in the session of the associa tion it was brought out that the bri gade would be mobilized at Lake City, a day previous to the date of starting for St. Louis and instead of having an encampment in 1904 the guard would spend the appropriation on the St. Louis trip. Gen. H. Quinton, who before his retirement from the regular army, commanded" the Fourteenth infantry during the trouble in China, # read an interesting paper on his experience in the Orient. Maj. George C. Lambert, chairman of the executive committee, submitted a report recommending that the legisla ture be asked for an appropria*l23 sufficient to maintain the camp and buildings at Lake City and provide for a permanent storehouse at that point. The committee recommended that the annual inspection at camp be con tinued; examinations should be held for non-commissioned officers; that a dress uniform would be advisable simf lar to that adopted by the United States army. A resolution by Col. Van Duzee re questing the adjutant general to pre pare an examination for non-commis sioned officers was adopted. The fact that regimental and com pany commanders draw heavily on their personal resources for incidental expenses caused the adoption of a resolution requesting the legislature to set aside annually $50 for brigade headquarters; $200 for regimental headquarters; $TSO for; artillery headr quarters and $100 for company com manders. Maj. Corriston, of the First regiment, talked against the annual company in spection at camp and favored the in spection being held at the company station. Favored Camp Inspection. Col. Bobleter, Col. Van Duzee and Gen. Bend all favored. inspection at the annual encampment and the motion to continue the inspections was carried by an overwhelming vote. Col. Van Duzee introduced a resolu tion to the effect that it was the sense of the meeting that the guard should have a distinct uniform, for state occasions. Maj. Wright, of Austin, and Maj. Corriston, of Minneapolis, opposed having any distinctive state unifprm. Maj. Lambert favored a uniform for dress occasions like the proposed trip to St. Louis. Capt. O. E. Lee said the Minnesota guard .had been compli mented on its appearance in Chicago in 1593 and did not favor a dress uni form. The motion offered by Col. Van Duzee was laid on the table. Gen. Bend, however, came to the front at once with a resolution call ing for a service uniform and dress similar to that of the regular-army, but that no action be taken until the regulars had decided on what they would wear. Gen. Bend informed the association that there was $5,000 left in the uniform fund for this year ana by this time next year there would be enough money on hand to get both ser vice and dress uniforms for each mem ber of the guard. Money Not Spent Goes to State. This statement brought out the fact that unexpected balances were not car ried over by the state auditor and if the money was not spent in one year it was turned over to the general fund. "Auditor-elect Iverscn told me differ ent the other day," said Gen. Bend. "Well, I know different," replied Adjt. Gen. Libbey, "because I have learned to my sorrow that if any part of the uniform fund 1b not spent at THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, SUNDAY DECEMBER 28, 1902. the end of the year it goes into the general fund." It was decided to have the law amended so as to have the balances in unexpended funds carried forward each year. . Capt. Lee, inspector of small arms practice, urged that more work be done by company teams in rifle prac tice and favored sending a team to Illinois to bring back the Washburn trophy now held by the guard from that state. Lieut. R. D. O'Brien, of St. Paul, se cured the passage of a, resolution ap propriating $10 for membership in the United Rifle association, and urged the sending of a team to Sea Girt, N. J., next summer to compete for prizes. He suggested that the encampment next summer could be cut short one day, and the funds taken to pay the expenses of the team. Started a Storm. This suggestion raised a storm of protest, but after some explanation the suggestion was adopted, Col. Van Du zee saying there would be a way found of raising the money. Two attempts were made to amend the by-laws so as to increase the ex ecutive committee from seven to eight members by allowing the president to appoint an additional member from the governor's staff. The point was made that Adjt. Gen. Libbey was a member of the executive committee and also a member of the governor's staff, and appreciated by Health Commissioner Ohage. It is considered one of the depart ment's most valuable assets, and an engraving of the medal, a fac simile of which is shown above, will shortly adorn all the office stationery. Health both times the amendment was voted down. Capt Bennett, of Company B, First artillery, wanted 25 cents paid to each enlisted man who attended drills. This would mean only about $16,000 a year, and it would help the guard considera bly. Gen. Bend opposed it, saying that the appropriation of about $60,000 from the state had been secured only by bringing the argument to bear that the members of the guard gave their valuable time for nothing. He feared the adoption of the suggestion would work against any increased appropria tion. The question of placing the prop osition in the hands of the executive committee was carried by a close vote. Adjt. Gen. Libbey thanked the mem bers for the assistance given him, and said that, while he was not present when GoV. Van Sant had announced meant as much to him as the 56,000 majority meant to the- governor at the recent election. Van Duzee Dines Officers. Col. Charles A. Van Duzee, of the Third regiment, national guard, gave an informal dinner at the Windsor last evening to the officers of his regiment who attended the association meeting. There were thirty at the table. After dinner the guests discussed affairs of the regiment and the state guard. IMPORTANT LETTERS AWAIT CLAIMANTS Australian Supreme Court Asks St.. Paul Postmaster to Find Curtain Family. There are four large letters at the St. Paul postoffice for memhers of the "Curtain" family. The letters have made the trip twice from Sydney, New South Wales, and are supposed, to be of great importance to the addressees, as they are from the supreme court of the Australian colony. The letters were returned by the St. Paul division September last, owing to "indefinite addresses," being simply addressed "Minnesota, U. S. A.,, and one of them care "Mr. Sharke (or Sparke) Ironworks, Minnesota." The postoffice department at Washington, at the request of the New South Wales government, has asked the St. Paul postmaster to exhaust every reason able means in an effort to locate the addresses. One of the letters is ad dressed to Mrs. Hyde, presumably a sister to the three "Curtain" brothers. WE HAVE HEARD OF IT BEFORE There fs no necessity for us to suffer pain and endure useless aeony.

The only other b!4 submitted was for Georgia marble ?

Rheam, superintendent of con struction of the new jail, submtited to the commissioners at yesterday's meet ing the report of the progress of the work on the jail, the report having been called for by a resolution adopt ed by the board some time ago. The report contains but; Jittle infor mation and the report shp'wjs that the exterior work of tbsstructure, ,is com pleted, that the cell workuis finished, as well as that ;o£ >the I^tsam coils, radiators, gas piping aii*l window frames.

According to the report, aside from these two items, not a cent has been expended on account of any changes in the plans and specifications* Mr. Rheaum attributes the delay in' the completion of the building to the fact that the steel cells and steel plates were not ready at the proper time, causing the contractors' much loss of time.

Central Park — Another Said That a Woman Was Dead in the Court House Tower. A mystery of some depth is devel oping out of the "suicide" letters that have been left at Minneapolis news- are in relief. The words "Bureau De L'Hygiene A St. Paul" show the char acter of the competition. The medal nqw reposes in Dr. Ohage's strong box at the city hall, but will soon be trans ferred to a glass case for exhibition purposes. _ . pager offices during the last few days. The first note, which was published by the afternoon papers in Minneapolis Friday, announced, that the body of a woman had been found in Central park —that the woman had evidently been frozen to death—-tttat she was" clad in black from head to foot, and was ap parently about twenty-five years of age. No such woman had been found, but it was- considered that she who left the note at the newspaper offices complete-, ly filled the description given of the supposed suicide, and watch was kept on the park in order that the myste rious person might be apprehended in case she appeared. Yesterday another note was deliv ered in which was the announcement apparently written by the same hand as the previous note, that a woman had been found dead in the court house tower. The description given of .the. dead woman was practically like that in the preceding notice, except that in the former a black astrakhan coat was said to have been worn by the deceased. Johnny Olsen Gets In. The note yesterday was delivered by a messenger boy named Johnny Olsen. The youngster declared that it had been handed to him by a man in the postQffice. This man, he declared, had been talking to another man and wom an. Olsen said he had been given 25 cents' to- deliver the message. A reporter was isent with the boy to overhaul the trio» but they had dis appeared from the postofHce. Later they were seen waiting for an interur ban car at Third street and First ave nue. All three denied that they had ever seen the boy before or that any note had been written by either of them. The boy insisted the contrary. While awaiting, the car the. elder o£ the men wrote something in a note book, afterwards tearing out the leaf. When they had boarded the car the younger man and the woman went In side while the older man remained on the rear platform. As the car pulled out he threw the note he had written off, the car. It was picked up by the reporter, who read: "Cut this out. Let well enough alone. I am looking after her and there will be nothing doing." The man who wrote the note was about fifty years of age. He was short three fingers on his right hand, was lame and walked with a ~ heavy cane. The other man was younger—about twenty-five years old. He took no part in the conversation. The woman was about thirty years old, wearing a sealskin sacque, a brown cloth skirt and tan gloves. She was a brunette, handsome and apparently a woman of refinement.

Sees Them Start for St. Paul. J. R. Whi-taker, of the New York Life Insurance company, living at 3215 Stevens avenue, was on the car- He had no previous knowledge of the trio that boarded the car at Third street, but his attention was attracted by their actions after leaving Minneap olis. "I did not pay much attention to them," said Mr. Whitaker on his^re turn to Minneapolis last night, "but they certainly acted very strangely. 1 noticed that they left the car at Avon street. « "The first thing that made me no tice them was that the woman wanted to get off the car at State street, near the university, but the older of the two men insisted that she had better re main and go through with him. " VBut it is certain to attract atten tion,' I heard the woman say. Then the younger man» who was sitting in the seat behind the other two, leaned forward and talked to the woman in an excited manner. I could not hear what he said, but shortly after that I noticed that she was in tears. From that time until they left car the woman kept her handkerchief to her eyeS and the men spoke to each other only oc casionally. I did not hear what they said. Several other people on the car noticed these three and the man who sat next to me spoke about their mys terious actions." The Minneapolis police believe that the woman is unbalanced mentally and that her male companions were re moving her to some hospital or retreat for persons so afflicted. If there be any other explanation of the curious occurrence, none has so far developed. POOR SERVICE IS EXPLAINED. Big Engine In Third Avenue Power Station Broke Down Christmas Eve. Explanation of the collapse in the Street railway service on Christmas eve has just developed. The big 1,200 horse power engine at the Third avenue. Rower Station in Minneapolis broke down unex pectedly and put the service in oven worse shape than it had been before the new Selby avenue engine was started. Nothing could have oe3n more unex pected. There had been nothing wrong with the engine so far as expert eyes could tell until an hour or two before it gave out. Immediately thereafter the resources of the company in the matter Tit power were reduced to 200 horse power less than had been available before the new Selby engine went into service. It fs appalling to think what would have happened if the Jatter engine had not been ready for use. A large gang of machinists and en gineers has been at work at night and day on the engines ever since this latest trouble occurred. The new 1,200 horse power engine being erected in Minneapo lis for supplementary power will be ready for use before the broken^down machine can be repaired. The new engine will mostly likely start up tomorrow. It is believed that the other large engine will have been repaired within a week. PRIVATE CLUES ENCROACHING. Neplgon .

HAVE YOU ANY OF THESE Symptoms of a Very Common Trouble? There is no disease so common in the United States as catarrh because it ap pears in so many forms and attacks so many different organs. __ It is a common mistake to suppose that catarrh is confined to the nose and throat. Any inflammation of the mucous mem brane wherever located, accompanied by abnormal secretions, Is catarrh. Catarrh of stomach or bladder, or intestines is nearly as common as nasal catarrh a~nd much more serious, although it is trua that stomach catarrh and catarrh of other internal organs is the result 'of neglected nasal catarrh. A new remedy has recently appeared which so far as tested seems to be re markably effective in promptly curing catarrh, wherever located. The prepara tion is sold by druggists generally under name of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and in addition to being very palatable and con venient, possesses extraordinary merit, in many cases giving immediate relief from the coughing, hawking and constant clear ing of the throat and head, those symp toms with which everyone is familiar who has ever suffered from colds in the head and throat. Catarrh is simply a continuation of these symptoms until the trouble becomes chronic and gri#ws gradually worse from year to year. Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are composed of Blood root, red gum and similar anti septics and catarrh specifics, from which it will be seen that no secret is made of the ingredients and also that no mineral poisons "are used, as is the case with many well known catarrh medicines. For catarrh of the nose, throat, bron chial tubes, for catarrh of stomach, in testines or bladder no preparation is so safe and gives such rapid and permanent results as Stuart's Catarrh Tablets. All druggists sell them at 50c for full sized package. You can use them with assurance that you will not contract the cocaine op morphine habit as the results from this catarrh cure are apparent from the first day's use.
