Two Ramsey County Republi

fact between at least two Republicans

was -fa'- supporter 7of Robert C. Dunn in
the.recent unpleasantness, and the man
• responsible... for his condition was a
strong advocate of Judge Collins' nomi
nation.' - yyyy.yy.
When Senator - Moses E. Clapp, in
his speech opening the state conven
tion, predicted that the adherents of
both Dunn and Collins would be found^
after "the hattie, marching shoulder to

that the factions had better keep far

Paul incident has created a genuine
Out at Schade's park, West Seventh
street, yesterday afternoon occurred
the debate that led to . Carlson's un
doing. At the park Carlson*, who dur
ing the pre-convention campaign was
a member of a Dunn club, fell into con
versation with a man whom he had
never met before, but* who volunteered
the information that -he" was a Collins
man; and had taken such, an interest
in the "little judge's 1 nomination that
he sought-membership in a St. Paul
Collins club.
Just Before the Battle
There is no political feeling like that
generated between members •of rival
factions -in one political - party, 'ana
when it became evident that the two
men were on opposite sides in the late
unpleasantness in the Republican party
the conversation became- animated.
Choice. compliments were exchanged as
to the merits. of the hot political can
vass, and the stranger made the bold
declaration that had it not been for
the aid and comfort, of the Democrats
that Dunn Would never "have been
nominated. He put into words the be
lief that : is quite, general among the
Collins supporters^that Dunn had the
active* support of -. quite a good many
Democrats in Ramsey county and
throughout the state generally, and the
moral support of a -great many. more.
Carlson, a good Republican, resented
the charge that Dunn had received sup
port from the common enemy and had
in this way compromised with the men
who usually fight the Republican or
ganization. y :..:. -.-*:*'•
He replied in kind,: and after an ex
change of remarks not altogether of a
complimentary nature, Carlson handed
the-Collins man a trophy in . the re
-jiiaiKthat. none but .-.'dum heads ~.had
supported Collins ii the campaign.
Then the people, in, the park saw en
tertainment not down on the bills. A
physical contest was inaugurated along
the same lines that the verbal colloquy
had been conducted, but it was ab
ruptly ended .when the Collins man
stepped ,back at a- safe distance,
reached out a long, athletic leg and
swiftly planted a foot In the abdomen
of the Dunn man.
Carlson fell .limply to the ground,
and bystanders who rushed to his as
sistance found him unconscious from
the impact of the foot against the dia
phragm. Still unconscious, he was" re
moved to Bethesda hospital, where Dr.
J. E. Nyquist was called to attend the
Injured man. At the hospital the pros
trate-Dunn supporter was revived, but
last night was still in a serious condi
tion. At the hospital it was said that
■; it was feared that he had sustained in
ternal injuries. t7"- - ;il ....
Carlson Able to Talk */ *7'
; The Dunn combatant -recovered suf
ficiently last night to relate the Inci
dents leading up to the assault, but
did not know the name of the Collins
man who had given him a kick from
> the choice assortment carried in stock
by all the Collins supporters since the
convention of last week. He said that
the man who had sent him to the hos
pital for treatment was an elderly
man, but he could not give a very good
description of him. 7
The St. Paul police, who have -no
sympathies in the 7 Republican fight,
are looking for the man, and when
captured he will be punished.
Had the Ramsey county delegation
been unseated, as was the Hennepin i
county Collins delegation, it is feared
that Sunday would have been a bad
day for the police. . 7
Senator Clapp could not be seen- to
night to learn whether there was any
significance to that part of his speech
referring to the advocates of each side
marching "shoulder, to shoulder." But
the eloquent junior senator will-have
-to show J. Carlson, 253 Spruce street,

Seven Arrested With Bogus

Paper at Lacrosse Game
Joseph E. Coyne, stockkeeper. at the !
Pioneer Press job printing rooms, was |
arrested at the lacrosse game yesterday
and taken to the Rondo station, where
he was charged with having stolen
tickets; giving admission to Lexington
park. Miss E. Kelly, , Miss R. C. Kelly,.
Mrs. John Gorman, C S. Johnson, John
Williams and Robert Brody were " ar- ,
rested with Coyne and accused of hav
ing received stolen property.
The arrests had been carefully- plan
ned. When the tickets received at the
game two weeks ago were- checked up
it was found : that' 'eighteen had been
received- that had not been* counter
signed, and the only way in which this .
could be accounted-for .was that the
.tickets- had been taken '■_ before -: they
were--> delivered" to * the management.
To learn the identity of the person
responsible, another order, was placed
with the same concern. "' 7. '.':'.-" . '■:.'■ 7 .' .'.
When the tickets, had been printed
and delivered an order was placed
with ; another printer for tickets of a
different color and form, the idea being
that it was likely that the person guilty
of having previously .taken the tickets
would again try to work the same? game.
That the case had: been figured out cor T4
rectly was proven, early, two of the
first persons to - present ; themselves at
the,- gate ; having the tickets that had
• been printed at the Pioneer' Press job
rooms.- The women, according:to the
management,.: were, asked \ where they
secured the tickets^ arid answered that
they had .-' purchased them, ultimately
averring, it is said, that they were se- ;
cured" at a Wabasha.street cigar *tOJpe. !
H. H. ; Chapman, 7 the gatekeeper, Or- ;
dered the arrest of the party : and they: |
were taken into custody, it being de
termined to learn 7- the ;- source ,-- - from
which the.tickets dame.*| The"question
ing of the \ victim's,,. it is said, ■ resulted
in Fecuring the Information that they
had secured the tickets from Coyne.
The latter, in charge of the stock of the
printing concern, in some manner is al
leged to have secured possession of the
tickets, 1 and from : him they passed*into|
the possession -of the others, arrested.
--: The - rriariager of the job printing
company later called at the.Rondo sta
tion, where the prisoners were detain
ed, and secured the release of Coyne.'
guaranteeing ■; his .appearance in - the
police "court this morning. All of those
connected with the \ affair will be tak
en, before the police;- court, but it is
expected Coyne will be the only., one to
be prosecuted. .7, :

The brickmakers .in the * employ' of
the St. Paul Brick company have been

--.71t was "also. decided to continue 7 the
agitation by holding a mass 7 meeting*'
The committee to call .this meeting
consists of F. B. Doran, C. S. Schur-7
man, J. M. .Hawthorn," J. C. Brj-ant. Dr.
V. J. Hawkins and Anthony Yoerg. The,
committee - will.- also lay ~ before .'the
school inspectors -the- seritim<fritsTo*f the
West side people, and ask that- the
question be held in abeyance, until the
' section |of the -city- can'< make its "blea
for the retention of the school.--".-_
The:following resolutions, introduced
in behalf of the alumni of the Hum
boldt by H. W. 7 Southworth, were
passed without' a dissenting vote:
Whereas, The. board. of , education of thY
city of \ St. : Paul, deeming it ; wise and ex- ,
pedient, have proposed a high school sys;
tern for this city involving the abandon
ment of the Humboldt high school; and
Whereas, -.-During the .period of its ex
istence the Humboldt high- school has
become so identified with the interests,of.
the Sixth ward and so potent a factor in
promoting its. welfare that "its removal,
would be an irreparable loss ■to the com
munity; therefore, be it
. Resolved. That we -: do hereby most
earnestly protest against the removal,
our high school, and 'hereby^pledge . our
earnest %support-in--every honorable, way
for its maintenance, and do appeal to the
citizens ,of the Sixth ward cto exert all
the influence at their command in co-op
eration; to . prevent the proposed., action
of the board of education. --. ._', -.
Objected to Sunday Evening
: Rev. T. W. Barbour, pastor -of the
church, in . opening .the meeting, said
that the original intention had been to
hold a combined gathering of the mem
bers of the Eiiglirsh-speajki^?_cht-jnrties
on the West side. but_it'been con
cluded '-by the] Other:, churches, for- dif
ferent' reasons,! that they did not care
to lake part at! the time. He said" that
( the: principal objection. was that the ■■
'meeting - was - to >; be . held on 7 Sunday
evening. . 7..-■-;'■' c
"But as for myself," he asserted, "I
think it is legitimate.and proper to hold
-a meeting of this kind: in. church on
Sunday, believing that it will be a
sorry day for • the* country ' when our
schools 7 cannot i be discussed from the
pulpit. In their moral • influence the
schools stand next to the churches, and
the should' work hand in hand in
the development of the people-morally,•
physically and 7 spiritually. -But :I . de
sire that it be understood that those
present do not represent the seven con-:
gregations that were . invited to par
ticipate." *
J. M. Hawthorne began his address
by giving a short resume of the situa
tion, recounting the sending out „by .the
board of school inspectors ofytfce .ques
tions regarding the course '-bsfT-tftudy,
and ias'• to the best method oi solving
the high school situation. 7" He-contend
ed that the people of the Si^tH S ward
were never given. notice of airy.- inten
tion to abolish the 7 Humbildt high
school, and that it was not known that
such action was contemplated until
after the inspectors had acted. / 7He
pictured the Sixth ward as a city with
in* itself, 7 Including churches, lodges,
schools, etc., with a population of
30,000, and entitled, to retain the high
school." r ' i-'V'>77>- - "" * •. '-" :-'i~:y.
. "Before the Humboldt high school
was established,'' he said,' "there was
an average graduation '- from the Cen
tral high -school. of .West' side pupil*
of three each year, whereas the average
graduation from the Humbokit-has-been
about twenty. The_sn.a.terial side of the
question should also be considered.
If the school moved many excellent
people will not make their homes in
this section of the city, going where
high schools are more easily reached.
This would ■ result *.; in the decrease fft
the value of property.-..;.We- could much
better. afford to pay an increased tax,
if it is . : money, that the school 1 board
needs. The 'school cannot well be
abolished because ■'■: of g the small at
tendance, as the average daily attend-,
ance is 1.51, as compared with an aver
age rof 110 in the high schools of, the
state." -*: ■ . ->■*■-■-.- *--. - •
Best Scholars Are. Developed -~
He contended that it. is in the small
er. schools that the best scholars are
developed, citing several instances .to
show that such, is the J case, and clos
ing with ' a plea that £.! the West side
people awaken and demand that the
school be retained.
Rev. Barbour pointed ■" to the fact
that ; the Humboldt yis -7 one of ' the :. six
high schools in the . state -' the pupils
of which: are . admitted to association,
colleges 7 without ; being required to un
dergo an examination, and held that
the fact that Humboldt this. year grad
uates 14 per cent of its pupils as com
pared with 11 per cent in the Central
should . have --." some' weight. ' Hfe""T5P-"'
pressed upon the pupils and where the
lieved that the people of the West side,
are 7 thoroughly in favor .of the -reten
tion of the school, and would so de
clare- now that it is known that there*
is an intention to abolish- it. -'y '
7' "Let us hold on; like grim death," *ne
said, '.'and if; necessary."-; call 7a mass
meeting and have an _" injunction, is
sued. We need the schoojin our midst
and by united action can.7 doubtless
"retain, it. Personally I; am strongly
i in - favor os. f small - schools, . where the
! individuality ,of ' the teacher, is im
in favor of small > schools, . where the
teachers have an opportunity to give
individual-instruction.. 7 By retaining
the school here we will be able to keep
our children under. - our. 7 own super- '"■
vision, and not send them across
river, and: by. many of the hell holes
of the ", city." . 77 " - ? ■-.. • -yjy ■■_
"7 ' There: was some discussion as .to the
,best; method of calling the :mass;meet-
ing. F. B. Doran thought that it should
be under, the auspices 7of 7 the Sixth;
Ward Improvement - association, but
.this was objected to, and the commit

Minneapolis Detectives Work
in Vain on Murder Case
The action of the Minneapolis man
whose name has been connected with
the mysterious death of the Teachout
girl, who was murdered in a glen near
Minnehaha falls Saturday, June 25, are
now being investigated by the police.
The officers detailed on the case are
endeavoring- to - ascertain where the
man spent- the time between 11 o'clock
that Saturday morning and 2 o'clock
in the afternoon, when he was again
seen. ■ . • -
• That -he left his office at the time
mentioned^ above has been ascertained
through: interviews-with different men
working in the .same office, but not a
single one of the .men . seen knows
where he went. *■:■;-:.
As soon as the body of the dead girl
had 7 been identified in the St. Paul
morgue by her - sister, the man, it 'is
said, consistently expressed the opin
ion that the girl committed . suicide.
At the office of, the chief of police
last | night there was a noted uneasiness
among. the men working on the mur
der /case,:. and while nothing-*definite
was given out, the .impression left
would lead to the belief that 'important
developments would follow shortly.
. The tramp theory is scouted by the
police, and while if was at first thought
that the girl might have left her es
cort in . the ; falls park 7 and journeyed
alone to the spot where she was mur
dered, they now believe that the man
who left the city,: with her after the
letter had been written. at the business
college is the man who was the perpe
trator of the crime. * "'7 7 7

home here today. Mr. Van Wyck urged :
the ex-chief of Tammany to use his

vention at St. Louis to induce it to
swing its vote from Alton B.Parker to
rover Cleveland, after a complimen
tary ballot had been given for Parker.
Mr. Croker, after the interview with -'
Mr. Van Wyck, was asked if he had -
anything to say regarding the coming
Democratic national convention. '-. 7
"Convention?"' 'said Mr. Croker.,
"When is it to be held? I do not know
anything about it. . Moreover, my views
on politics can have no interest for the
people of the United States. . I am not
in politics, and have not been since I
left America. I have no intention to
say or do anything with regard to the
campaign. Other than this I have-no '
expression of opinion to malje to any
one." .....'.
Mr. Van Wyck tonight declined to
say if he had been entrusted with any
private message for Charles P. Mur
phy, leader of Tammany.
Mr. Van Wyck will start for the con
tinent tomorrow.
