Members of Former Factions Express Their Approval
of the Work of the (National Convention—Parker Is
Recognized by All as the Candidate Able to Make a
Winning Fight, and Success of the Party at the
Polls Is Generally Predicted
The Democrats of St. Paul are satis
fied with the ticket nominated in St.
Louis, and to add to the general good
feeling there is complete absence of
criticism as to the platform, and a gen
eral approval of its provisions.
Expressions of praise come from all
grades of Democrats. Those who four
and eight years ago most warmly sup
ported the candidacy of W. J. Bryan
join with the so-called gold Demo
crats in warm praise of Judge Parker,
and almost without exception predict
the success of the ticket at the polls.
Without exception the Democrats are
more hopeful of victory than they have
been in the past years, agreeing that
it has rarely happened that the party
has been able to go before the people
with a united front and so determined
to win success at the coming election.
Although many of the Republicans
declare their belief in the success of
their candidates, there was from this
source an absence of criticism of Judge
Parker. It was admitted by the oppo
sition that he will be a strong man be
fore the people, that he is able and up
right, and that President Roosevelt
will realize at once that he has a fight
on his hands.
Mayor Smith Is Hopeful
Robert A. Smith. Mayor of St. Paul —
It is a ticket of which every Democrat
can well feel proud, and to make the
situation more hopeful the candidates
are bolstered up by an excellent plat
fom.. There is every reason to be
lieve that Judge Parker will be the
next president. It may be said by a
few that he is too conservative, but it
has been my experience that this class
of men make ihe best officers. They
refrain from precipitating a panic by
treating a situation that results in a
lack of confidence in the stability of
the financial institutions. This is truly
;i vtrur in which every Democrat, what
ever his belief in the past, can get in
line for the ticket and urge his friends
to vote for the nominee of the party.
In -fact, the situation is so hopeful
that it makes me feel young to con
template the time when all persons of
the Democratic faith can come togeth
er in a common body and work to a
common end.
I was particularly pleased with Lit
tleton's speech nominating Parker. The
indirect hits at Roosevelt may have
been a little out of place, but the
tribute to Parker and the demonstra
tion of his value as a candidate were
really 'eloquent.
Mr. Littleton's skill, so far as I could
judge from the telegraphed reports,
reminded me of the wonderful speech
I heard at Cincinnati in 1880 when Dan
Dougherty nominated Hancock. I at
tended as a delegate two other national
conventions. But the orators that
named Cleveland at Chicago and St.
Louis did not reach the level of Dough
erty's Cincinnati effort, in spite of the
fact that at St. Louis Cleveland was
pioposed by Dougherty himself.
Daniel W. Lawler Happy
D. W. Lawler, who left the national
Democratic committee eight years ago
because he could not support the finan
cial policy of Bryan, declared that "it
was pleasant to get in again out of
the wet."
"It is a splendid nomination," con
tinued Mr. Lawler, "and it means that
ell the old-time Democrats will sup
port the ticket once more. I certainly
shall do so.
"I believe that Parker has a very
fair chance of being elected. He will
carry not only the 'solid South,' but
the doubtful Southern states—Ken
tucky and Maryland and West Vir
ginia. I think, too, that he is likely
to secure among the Northern states
New York. Xew Jersey, Connecticut,
Indiana. Ohi'j and Wisconsin.
"The platform is thoroughly satis
factory. Too much criticism, I think,
has already been directed against the
omission of the gold plank. It was
not necessary to retain that plank.
There is no danger now of a revival
of -16 to I.' and a gold plank would
have been simply a slap at the silver
"I would like to say also that Mr.
Bryan has made a splendid record in
this convention. He stands nearer now
to the heart of the Democratic party
than he ever stood before."
Kane Praises the Ticket
T. R. Kane, County Attorney—The
Democratic candidates are grand types
«tf the American manhood, representing
in the truest manner the great na
tional idea that the self->made man is
Fure to be a true representative of the
people. To my belief there is nothing
in the platform to which objection can
be taken, and certainly there can be
found no fault with the men who have
been chosen to head the ticket. Such
a ticket, backed by the excellent plat
form, will result in the party present
ing a united front to the common en
emy. There is no necessity of attack
ing the candidates of the opposition,
but a careful, truthful and conserva
tive statement of the merits of the
Democratic candidate will, it seems to
me, result in solidifying the Demo-

E. J. Cannor> Is" Suited • "
E. J. Cannon, Lawyer and Member of
the Charter Commission —Never hav
ing been a silver Democrat the nomi
nations suit me splendidly. The plat
form is of the kind that will win with
the conservative Eastern people, and is
now a great deal more popular in the
West than it would have been a few
years ago. Judge Parker will make a
strong race, and should carry New
York, Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin, be
sides a number of smaller states that
are classed as doubtful, which, with
the solid South, assures his election.
It will be a lively campaign, into which
the personalities of the candidates will
be generally considered, weighing
which the voters will be compelled to
grant that Judge Parker is better
fitted for the position.
Whitcomb Proud of Candidate.
Dr. E. H. Whitcomb, Assemblyman—
Parker is a candidate that any man
can vote for and be proud of the privi
lege. From what I have read of the
platform I believe that it is worthy of
the nominee.
Parker Commands Confidence
James R. Hickey—Parker is the
most acceptable candidate that they
could have chosen. He is one in which
the commercial industries of the coun
try will have complete confidence,
should he become chief executive. As
for the platform, it is the expression
in words of the demands of the major
ity of the people of the United States.
It is the greatest platform, in fact, that
the Democratic party has had since the
days of Jefferson. It will assure a
united Democracy.
A Fortunate Nomination
Dr. Rudolph Schiffmann, Assembly
man—Judge Parker is a strong candi
date, a Democrat worthy of the sup
port of every member of his party, and
a man commanding the respect of Re
publicans as well as Democrats. The
nomination of Judge Parker was for
tunate. He will rank with Jefferson
and Jackson. The platform deserves
the approval of every thinking citizen.
Convention Acted Wisely
George T. Redington, City. Clerk—
The Democratic national convention
has acted most wisely in placing in
nomination men of national reputation,
who have in no manner been identified
with the recent disturbances within
the party. If the feeling among the
Democrats In other sections of the
country is similar to that which ob
tains in St. Paul, there can be little
question as to the election of the can
didates named in St. Louis. I find that
locally the Democrats are unanimously
in favor of the ticket.
This Is a Democratic Year
Frank J. Huber, President of the
Board of Aldermen—The ticket nom
inated by the Democrats in St. Louis
will win. This, is a Democratic year,
even the Republicans admitting that
such is the case. Judge Parker will
receive the loyal support of the Ram
sey county Democracy.
Democrats to March to Victory
C. A. Fisher, Member of the School
Board—A grand ticket and worthy of
the success that it will meet. It seems
that the Democrats are finally united
and prepared to march to victory. If
there are any Democrats in Minnesota
who are not favorable to the Demo
cratic nominees it would probably do
them good to witness the enthusiasm
that doubtless prevails in the East at
this time. My information from that
section is that Judge Parker is a high
favorite, and his election is practically
assured, now that he has the nomina
tion of his party.
Ticket Suits Bremer
Otto Bremer, City Treasurer—The
ticket Is all right and I am perfectly
willing to stand by the platform, al
though I have not yet read it. I un
derstand that it is conservative, and it
will therefore prove popular with the
Picks Parker to Win
Stan J. Donnelly, Son of the Late Ig
natius Donnelly—The campaign will
be a hot one and will result in the
election of Judge Parker to the pres
idency. During the pay? few years
there has been a wonderful change in
the sentiment of the people on national
questions, and there is now a general
demand for the elevation to the presi
dency of a man who can be depended
upon to give the country a safe, con
servative administration, free from the
elements that cause alarm and some
times result in financial panics. The
platform suits the principal candidate
to a nicety, and there would seem to
be no difficulty in getting together un
der the circumstances. Evidence of
the feeling that now is the time to
agree is to be found on every hand,
the opinion of the Democrats being
that there should be a declaration that
bygones are bygones, and that in the
coming election there shall be victory.
Hearst Man Is Satisfied
James Cormican—Although a Hearst
man myself, I realize that Judge Par
ker is the strongest candidate that
could have bees placed in the field by
the party. He will, I believe, receive
the solid support of the Hearst adher
ents in the state, which Includes many
of the strong admirers of W. J. Bryan.
If Roosevelt wins it will be necessary
for him to don his fighting clothes. An
opponent has been named that will
cause him to realize that he has a
race on his hands.
Thinks Parker l s Strong
Edward L. Mi:rphy—Friends of mine
from New York tell me that Parker Is
one of the strongest mea that the con
vention could have selected. The plat
form—well, it would hardly do for me
to say anything about that this after
noon. I haven't hr.d time to read it
An Excellent Nomination
E. C. Stringer, United States District
Attorney Under President Cleveland—
It was an excellent nomination, that of
Judge Parker. I haven't yet digested
the platform.
Michael Doran Satisfied
Michael Doran. the veteran leader of
North Star Democracy, said that he
"thought well" of Parker's nomination
Not having had time to examine the
platform, Mr. Doran did not cur# to
express an opinion of its planks.
John Strom Changes-His Mind
After Jumping Into
Despondent because he was unable
to find work, John Strom, a bartender,
formerly of Minneapolis and Omaha,
jumped into the Mississippi river above
Chestnut street yesterday evening
shortly after 6 o'clock. After sinking
twice he decided that he would rather
live and struggled back to the bank.
Dripping and gasping for breath
Strom mechanically walked upstream a
few hundred feet to the spot from
which he had jumped, picked up his
coat and vest and adjusting his collar
walked back towards the city. He had
gone but three blocks when Patrolman
Morse stopped him and demanded to
know what had happened. Strom con
fessed to the officer that he had at
tempted to drown himself, and within
ten minutes was locked in a cell at the
central police station' with a charge of
"attempted suicide" against his name.
\ Strom declared that he had been
driven to seek his death on account of
being unable to find employment. He
said he had sought in vain for work in
St. Paul and Minneapolis during the
past three weeks, and being reduced
to want decided that he preferred death
to beggary.
Strom Tells His Story
"I left Omaha three weeks ago be
cause I could not get along with my
wife," said Strom. "I went to Minne
apolis, where I lived five years tending
bar at 224 Nicollet avenue. I could get
no position there and came to St. Paul.
I tried to get in a saloon here" but every
place was filled. I tried hotels and of
fered to work in the kitchen. Failing
to get any kind of work I was 'up
against it.' I was stopping at 404 West
Seventh street, but my supply of money
gave out. I sold my watch and ring,
and yesterday I pawned a good suit of
clothes, getting $1.50 for it. That money
I soon spent and today I had nothing
left. I had been getting $18 per week
at the position I left in Omaha and
was in despair. Walking aimlessly
about the city I saw the river and I
went down to the bank.
Struggled Back to Shore
"After a little hesitation I took off
my coat and vest and collar and plung
ed in. I sank immediately, for the
water is deep at that point near the
bank. I held my mouth shut tight, and
I soon wished I was back on dry land
again. I went down twice and finally
by struggling I succeeded in getting
to the bank. I don't know how I did it,
for I cannot swim. When I got on my
feet I walked up the bank to get my
clothes and after putting them on
walked up the street, where I met the
policeman. He told me to go with him
to the station to get dried, and then
I was locked up. I am sorry I did not
drown, but I hardly think I will try it
Strom is forty years old and has a
wife living at Omaha. He resided in
Omaha during the past four years and
previous to that resided in Minneapolis.
He served six years in the army, and
his discharge papers which were found
in his coat, mention his conduct as ex
Charles Hebert Is Accused of Assault
ing Young Joseph Nechodomer
Charles Hebert, a sixteen-year-old
boy, was arrested yesterday charged
with having thrown with a slingshot
the stone that struck Joseph Nechodo
mer in the head Thursday. Hebert
was arraigned in police court and his
case continued until July 28. He was
released on $1,000 bonds.
Nechodomer remains in a serious
condition at the city hospital, but will
recover. His skull is slightly fractured,
but the physicians at the city hospi
tal say that he will live.
Court Rules That L. Hause Cannot Be
Forced to Pay Assessment
Judge Lewis yesterday filed a de
cision, holding that the required num
ber of property owners did not sign the
petition for the grading of West Fair
field avenue, and that Ludwig Hause,
owner of a lot abutting on the street,
will not be compelled to pay the J2i6.90
assessed against his property. The
beard of public works asked for judg
ment against Hause and for the right
to sell his property if he still failed
to make payment.

"From a child I was never strong

If the Igorrotes, the savage mem

All the stray dogs in St. Louis have

pony show which begins its three days*
engagement at Selby and Victoria
street on Monday afternoon, has just
received a letter from the Importer
of the Igorrotes, asking for prices on
all sorts of dogs and saying that his
people must have dogs. Mr. Gentry
did not know whether to be indignant
or amused, but has replied that he
does not breed nor raise dogs for culi

At Waterloo, lowa, a few days ago,
the management of the circus learned
that the annual dog feast of the Mus
q'uakie (Sac and Fox) tribe of In
dians, who reside on their reservation
in Tama county, falls in the present
moon. A delegation of braves arrived
in the city a few days ahead of the
Gentry show and as the Gentry Broth

tims of dog fanciers, orders were given
the employes to exercise great watch
fulness on the occasion of the Water

During the stay in Waterloo it was
noticed that the Musquakie braves
took more than a passing interest in
the billboards where the Gentry per
formances were portrayed. It was di
vined that it was not the gaudy posters
that attracted the eye of the son of the
forest so much as the gastronomic
possibilities suggested to him.
The street parade at Waterloo was
carefully guarded by all employes of
the show whose duties did not require
them to take part in same, and the

reached this city this morning intact.

Frontage Tax. Assessment Reduced
The frontage tax assessment to cover
the cost of new water mains will be
$26,810.67 for 1904, a decrease of $1,
--755.23 from the assessment for last
year. The difference is caused by the
deduction of $7,797.97, ■which has been
paid during the past ten years, and
the addition of only $6,042.74, which
represents the cost of the mam.: laid
this year, and which will be paid for m

Will Attempt to Have Convicted
Detective Paroled
At the next session of the board of
control at the Minnesota penitentiary
applications for the parole of former
Chief of Police Fred Ames and former
Detective Norm W. King will be pre
sented, the friends of both prisoners
feeling that these will meet with the
approval of the board. The session will
be held early in August.
When the parole of former Detective
Christopher C. Norbeck was announced
the application for the pardon of King
was withdrawn and it Is the opinion
among friends of King in the city who
are familiar with the workings of the
board of control that he will have no
more trouble In securing a parole than
did Norbeck.
An application for the pardon of Fred
Ames has already been acted on once
by the board of pardons, but he is not
yet eligible to parole. A commutation
of sentence may soon be asked for so
as to reduce his term to such a length
that he could be paroled.

Watchdog Is Found With Bul
let in Head
Prince Morgan, of the Bethel hotel,
was 3'esterday found lying dead on
Second street, a short distance east of
Wabasha street, death having been
caused by a bullet passing through
his brain.
It was a clear case of murder, and al
though the victim was only a dog be
longing to Rev. David Morgan, of the
Bethel, an investigation has been set
on foot to discover the identity of the
person or persons who deliberately took
his life. A clue has been discovered
by the amateur detectives.
Some forty days ago a man, a
stranger in the city, called at the
Bethel hotel at about 4 o'clock in the
morning and was alleged to have bro
ken a window in the front door. The
fellow was arrested and charged with
malicious destruction of property, giv
ing the name of James Smith. His
story was that he came to the city and
while searching for a friend whom he
supposed was acting as a bartender,
he acquired more drinks than he could
accommodate. He said that he went
to the Bethel to secure lodging and
that when he pounded on the door the
big dog jumped up and stuck his front
feet through the glass.
In the police court the next day the
man repeated the statement, but was
sent to the workhouse for thirty days.
It is held by the investigators that
when this man was released he in
duced the dog to accompany him to
the lonely part of Second street where
the body was found and there fired the
shot that laid the dog low. As Smith
cannot be found and the police are not
aware of his whereabouts, it has been
found impossible to secure a denial
from him.

Sheriffs Claim for $1,002 as
Fees Is Rejected
Sheriff P. C. Justus is not entitled to
collect for returns on personal prop

amount due is collected.

County Attorney Kane in his ruling on
the Justus and other claims by county
officials for fees.
