The police commission has undergone
as many changes in the past week as
some boards of its size would in a life
time. When the first upheaval came it
was thought that Commissioners Guile
and Gjertsen would go hand-in hand
against Mayor Babb and crowd out Chief
Brackett. But this caused so much pub
lic condemnation that Guile thought it
better to take Mayor Babb's view of
i'hings and let Detective King go. Gjert
sen did not like this, and he was not
slow in showing his teeth. He did not,
want Brackett to remain, and he was
anxious that King should retain his
place, but, being in the minority, he was
beaten. Gjertsen does not like Brackett
because, as he soys, he is too partial to
the Irish,—a very good fault for the
chief to have. He knows whether a man
will make a good policeman or not when
he sees him without asking him where
he was born. As a result of the shuffle
Commissioner Gjertsen is out in the cold,
with good prospects of remaining there
for a time at least.
There was a wild cat iu the neighbor
hood of Lake Amelia last week, which
will be long remembered. As a result
of iis visit to that locality one man has
died and ihe second is sick and may die.
The cat question visited one of the
camps of County Surveyor Dahl's party
several days ago and bit one of the men.
Nils Strand, on the face while he was
asleep in the camp. Strand grew sick
soon afterwards and became so bad that
he was taken to St. Barnabas hospital
for treatment. Here he died of a gen
uine case of hydrophobia. Some days
after Strand was taken sick the cat bit a
man named Hanson, wh© was also one
of the surveying party, and he is now
somewhere in the city under the imme
diate care of the health department.
These cases have caused so much com
ment that the state board of health has
taken the matter in hand. It is the in
tention of the authorities to send him to
Paris, where the celebrated doctor, Pas
teur, lives. Mayor Babb, Alderman
Potter, G. W. Cooley, Health Commis
sioner Kilvington and others, have al
ready subscribed $300 towards the fund,
to defray the patient's expenses. It is
likely that the necessary $500 will be
raised without much trouble. Mean
while the cat it still at large, and it is
not known how many felines have been
bitten by it.
The city council at its last meeting
rejected the proposition of Anderson &
Douglas to build cable lines in the city,
or at least failed to consider it, but
ordered the present street railway com
pany to build several street car lines, as
well as cable lines in addition to the one
which will take the place of the motor
line. This report was brought in by a
majority of the railroad committee, and
was adopted. The minority report

Anderson & Douglass say they are still

Thursday where he had been several
weeks. Aster perusing the proceedings
oi the last council meeting, and par
ticularly those bearing on the proposed
cable lines, as outlined in last week's
issue, Mr Lowry said his company
would accept their proposition, but
iutimated that there weie a few things
connected with the matter that perhaps
the council might see fit to change that
he would have a few recommendations

meeting, and then he expected "every

The Excursion Line.
Since its advent into the Iforthwest
ern iield, about three years ago, "The
Burlington" has come to the front as
the favorite line for large excursion par
ties. In June, 1888, this line carried
the Northwestern delegates to the Na
tional Democratic Convention at St,
Louis by special train, to their entire
satisfaction. In the same month "Tbe
Burlington" was the people's line to
tbe National Republican Convention at
Chicago, carrying in four days over four
thousand delegates and visitors to that
gathering. The Knights of Pythias also
selected it as their line to the Supreme
Lodge meeting at Cincinnati. This
year the teachers of Minnesota and the
Northwest selected "The Burlington"
as the official route to their great meet
ing at Nashville. The reason is that
this is the superior route for all large
parties. For tickets and rates acdress

tinues through the The list of
attractions being secured by President
Bushnell and Secretary Denny far out
rank those of previous years, and make
it doubly necessary for the farmers,
mechanic* and artizaos of the whole
state to have an interest in it. The
management has particularly developed
the idea that tile fair is for the entire
state and not one sectiou of it. The
premium lint is arranged to bring out
