THE unwisdom of the biennial sessions is
made painfully apparent at the very thresh-
hold of its inauguration. I is customary to
divide the Governors message and refer it to
appropriate legislative committees. The pres
ent messago is so long that it nioro than
goes around, and if biennial sessions were
fully inaugurated we should have to wait two
years before some portions of the message
were acted upon. For instance, we might
have to be delayed until (880 before we could
learn authoritatively from th legislature
whether farmers should leave their machinery
out of doors, or not
THE fact that three prominent Life Insu
rance officials have been sent to the peniten
tiary in New York, renders the subject of an
nual statements a very serious matter. The
officers who have to make the affidavits are
anxiously investigating the figures furnished
by the bookkeepers of their companies, and
the showing of life companies hi 1878 bids
fair to bring to light a largo shrinkage hi
values. If President Case, of the defunct
Security life, could retrace his steps ho
would probably know that there were but
nine hundred dollars in bank when he was
called upon to swear that the amount was
nine hundred thousand.
THE message of the Governor of Ohio

TflE entire absenco of vital principles in
the Republican party is sadly manifest by the
plaintive wail uttered by the Chicago Tribune
in behalf of Mi-. Hayes. Tho office holders
are continually being warned by that journal
that if they oppose Mr. Hayes he will be
compelled, in self defense, to turn them out
and appoint Democrats in their places. (This
is civil service reform.) The supposed aver
sion of his Satanic Majesty to holy water, is
as nothing in comparison with a Republican
officeholder's horror at the thought of being
out in the cold. Hence, though their Presi
dent has betrayed and abandoned them, they
must cringe, and fawn, and lick the hand
that smites them. What a contrast between
the Republican party that was, and the Re
publican party that is.
BEFORE THE PUBLIC.
THE GLOBE makes its morning bow to the
public to-day, and, without further ceremony
enters upon the fulfillment of its mission. It
is now nearly three years since the consolida
tion of two papers left St. Paul with but one
morning newspaper. However advantageous
as a business enterprise to those immediate
ly concerned that movement may" have
proved, it has been generally and contiihv
ously regretted by the public/ Not that
either one or both of these papers filled such
a niche that their absence did or could create
an aching void, but from the fact that there
is an irresistible desire to see "both sides" of
all questions represented, and any attempt to
prevent this creates a feeling of resentment
akin to that caused by a personal affront.
But for the expense of obtaining a fran
chise in the Western Associated Press (with
out which no journal worthy the name of
?te?.cspaper can survive) a second morning
paper would have long since made its appear
ance. Such a franchise having finally been
by the editor of THE GLOBE, this
journal iu presented to the public. The course
which THE GLOBE will pursue, so far as it
can be mapped out in advance, was given to
the public in a prospectus a few days ago,
from which we quote as follows:
E E GLO BE will be a NEWSPAPER, giving com-
plete ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW S, coupled with
liberal special telegrams, correspondence, &c.
In short, THE GLO BE will furnish all the news
and present an accurate and complete daily
map of the doings of this busy world. A
able, active, and vigorous corps of editors, re
porters, and correspondents has been secured,
and THE GLO BE will bo a first-class journal in
all its departments.
THE GLOBE will be DEMOCRATIC. Not in the
offensive "organ-grinding" sense, bound to
blindly support any man or measure bearing
for the time the label of Democracy, but in the
broad, liberal meaning of the termthe Dem
ocracy which signifies a government by the
people, conducted to advance the interests of
the whole people. I will labor to make the
great crime odious whereby the will of the
people was thwarted and a man placed in the
Presidential chair who was not elected. I will
endeavor to aid in making this fraud so odi
ous, that no party will dare to attempt its rep
etition, and no man in the future will be wil
ling to accept the fruits of such robbery.
Honest and economical governmentLocal,
State and Nationalwill always be advocated.
THE PRESENT PARAMOUNT ISSUE
is whether the few shall devour the many.
Whether the business depression which now
hangs like a pall over the land, carrying woe
and desolation everywhere, shall become more
fearful, or whether the burden shall be lifted.
On this, as upon all questions, the GLO BE will
be found battling with no uncertain sound
upon the side of the people. I will favor the
REMONETIZATION OF SILVER, and the REPEAL OF
THE RESUMPTION ACT, as the least that can be
done to make amends for the secret crime by
which debts payable in coiu were changed to
the gold standard alone. I twill favor any and
all other measures calculated, to advance the
business interests of the country, and tending
to improve the condition of the masses. I
will be emphatically the
PAPER FOR BUSINESS MEJJ.
It will give great attention to the Markets
and to Commercial matter generally, and will
furnish the news of the world in such con
densed and attractive form that the busiest
men will be able to keep fully posted upon
The establishing of THE GLO BE is a personal
business enterprise. N fund has been raised
by politicians or others, and not a dollar is
asked save in the way of legitimate business.

copy can be issued, proves that it io on per
manent basis from the start. Th publisher
believing that there is a field here for such a
journal as he has briefly outlined, confidently
appeals to the public for support. Democrats
of Minnesota, who have so long regretted their
inability to obtain a hearing for their princi
ples, now have an opportunity to attest their
appreciation of this enterprise. Republicans
who condemn the current sham Civil Service
reform, and the utter betrayal of their party,
North and South, by the non-elected President,
can testify their approval of THE GLO BE by
It will be tho aim of the editor to make

respect, and worthy of the city and State
which it in part represents. Political oppo
nents will be fairly treated, but unfit men
who aspire to public places of trust will be
And now with a clean sheetno complica
tions nor animositiesTHE GLOBE moves on
to win, because it will deserve, success.
STATES A1SD HOME-RULE.
One of the most significant exhibitions of
the affection and attachment of the people
to their own State governments and to home
rule has been witnessed during the past few
weeks in the inauguration of the newly
elected Governors. In Virginia, Ohio, Wis
consin, Minnesota, and in other States, the
people and military, with great pageantry,
turned out to swell the pomp of th& cere
monies. In Wisconsin military companies
with bands attended by a large con
course of citizens accompanied Gov
ernor Smith from Milwaukee to Madison,
and in Virginia the First Virginia Reginent es
corted Gov. Haliday to the capitol. In Ohio
the ceremonies of inauguration were no less
imposing. This looks somewhat like a re
vival of State affection and pride. At any
rate nothing like it has been seen in this
country in many years, and we may after all
learn that the attachment of the people to
tho States still survives, and so long as it
does survive there can be no danger of Cre
THE CIVIL SERVICE HERESY.
It was sometime during the second term
of the reign of Ulysses I. that the political
heresy of civil service reform, as proclaimed
by the republican party, was first heard of.
We are not aware, that the number of
office holders in the United States has ever
been accurately ascertained. When Grant
ascended the throne he was surrounded by a
multitude of office seekers, including a regi
ment of his own family. The sixty or eighty
thousand federal offices, at the close of his
term, wore filled, with very few exceptions,
by Republicans. During his term
tho disclosures of rascality, corruption
fraud, robbery of all kinds and grades, aro
still fresh in the memory of the people. The
public service was never more rotten. It
was the outgrowth, of Congressional corrup
tion. It was filled, as a general rule, by the
most ignorant, corrupt set of political vaga
bonds and shysters that ever fastened them
selves upon any government. Of course
there were exceptions. But the great body
of the office-holders, from the highest to the
lowest, had obtained their positions
through political bargains and sales,
sometimes money considerations,
sometimes worse, if possible.
and This was true when Hayes came into office.
this army must be continued in office for
ever. Kotation in office is a cardinal doc
trine of republican government. If the
offices had been filled on the ground of
merit alone, at first, and equapy distributed
among the people without reference to poli
tics, we could then appreciate this civil ser
vice reform business, perhaps, but as the con
trary is true, and as we will have a Demo-
craticPresident in 1881, we prefer to have
another deal and another set than the oldine,
barnacles of the last fifteen years, and after
we have obtained a new deal, and filled all
the offices with honest, competent, sound
Democrats, why then we may take "civil
service reform" under consideration.
A UNITED DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
The existence of an opposition is as essen
tial in a free country as minorities and
majorities, or checks and balances to pro
duce a political equilibrium between them, or
a Constitution to protect the rights of alL The
people of the United States have lived for
nearly fifteen years under the most absolute
despotism the world ever saw. It has been
apparently the despotism of a majority. It
has been far worseit has been that of a
minority of the people, who succeeded to
power by seizing corruptly a numerical
majority of the electoral vote. The people
of the United States have always been and
are to-day Democratic. With one exception
a majority of the popular vote has been
Democratic during all these long, dark weary
years of oppression and fraud.
It is not proposed now to enter on theMass.,
endless catalogue of Republican frauds and
conspiracies to destroy civil liberty, but we
challenge history to show, under the worst
and most devilish government on earth, an
example where more omnipotent efforts
were made to crush out every semblance of
opposition. To be a Democrat was to be a
traitor. The Senate of the United States,
once the council chamber of enthroned
States, became a mere political oligarchy, a
mere machine to register the edicts of the
Executive, and to divide with him the patron
age. The House of Representatives, the
immediate agents of the people, banded to
gether for plunder and robbery.
No Democrat was allowed to hold office or
a voice in the Government. To perpetuate
this tyranny and to pave the way for an end
less lease of power, a conspiracy, far worse
than that of Cataline, was plotted, to subsi
dize the newspapers of the country. Editors
were appointed Postmasters, and assistant
editors and newspaper stockholders, Treasury
and Revenue Agents. The lines of intel
ligence were monopolized and all pos
sible means used to smother and throttle
not only the will but the voice of the people.
The conspiracy has failed. The chains are
broken. They will soon be removed. To
remove them there is need of a united
county, State and National Democracy. The
country must be taught trust and faith, and
the Democratic party must become thor
oughly organized and united. This is now the
mission of every honest Democrat. This is
the mission of the DAILY GLOBE.
TURNING STATE'S EVIDENCE.
THE GLOBE publishes this morning the
somewhat remarkable manifesto recently
issued by Bill Chandler of New Hampshire.
We publish this not as news, but as history,
though in this locality it might be reasonable
to claim it as news, for the bigotry of the
partisan papers has prevented the previous
appearance of the document in Minnesota.
This document has a double value in that
it is the confession of one of the rascals who
stole the Presidency, and at the same time
expresses the views of the Blaine-Coukling
element of the Republican party. For, dis
guise it as the friends of Mr. Hayes may
attempt, the conflict with his own party has
already commenced, and the pronunciamento
of this minor personage, sounds the key
note of tho battle which others more formid
able than he, propose to wage.
The confession is the portion of the docu
ment that is now of the most interest. Was
there ever a more unblushing admission of a
fraud than the following paragraph?
I Louisiana, however, there had been
thrown into the ballot-boxes over 7,000 more
votes for the Tilden than forth Hayes elect
ors, and to make Hayes President it became
necessary for the returning board, acting under
peculiar local laws, to throw out more thau
7,000 Tilden votes on account of alleged mur
der, riot, and intimidation, preventing a fair
and free election to certain parishes. per
form this extraordinary, even if justifiable,
work, i the face of an armed and infuriated
democracy, required men of undauuted cour
age and such courage the returning board
The case is here stated in a
nut shell. It was necessary to throw
out seven thousand votes, and it was also
necessary to secure a pretext for such whole
sale disfranchisement. No wonder that he
says it required men of undaunted courage,
and no wonder that Chandler and other Re
publicans who were parties to the crime are
indignant over the Presidential policy which
dethroned the men who had stolen the Exec
While, so far as those rascals are con
cerned, it is a just retribution, the crime was
one which the American people never can
and never ought to forgive or forget. It was
an offence against free government which
should and will consign the guilty men and
party to everlasting disgrace and oblivion.

The daily papers inform us that a SELECT
musical society is being organized for theSheriff
performance of Oratorios and Masses. Now
if this "SELECT" refers to musical skill and
superiority of voices, we wish a hearty "God
speed" to the enterprise but if that "select"
has reference to social station only, we think
that the word carries the seed of speedy de
cay along with it. In our own experience
we have seen dozens of such societies spring
ing up like mushrooms and wither away no
body knew when. But all agreed to one
main cause: too much "select." As for the
leadership of such an organization, it re
quires a little more than the handling of
Greek fire and Roman candles. It needs a
thorough musical knowledge, combined
with a conciliatory manner, ready at any
time to sacrifice the interest of self or friends

The changes made are very important and

Fire in Western Avenue.
Yesterday about half-past ten o'clock "a
solitary horseman" visited the various engine
houses in the central part of the city, and
notified them in a bewilderingly excited
manner that there was afire raging on West
ern Avenue, near the crossing of the St. Paul
& Pacific railway. This "solitary horseman"
was from the country, and utterly ignorant
of the fact that there was a fire alarm box
within two squares of the fire.
Obeying the summons, however, Hook &
Ladder No. 1, and two or three hose com
panies arrived at M. Coffin's grocery store,
where the fire was burning, in time to assist
in extinguishing it, after about $50 worth of
damage had been done. The fire originated
in the second story, from a crack in a cook
ing stove, which deposited a few live coal-s on
the pine floor. Insured with Gale & Co. for

by Messrs. Monasch, Mead, Tousley and
Dr. Ames. Mr. Morris Adler, the newof
teacher, has had charge of the school
for the past three monthB, and under
his instruction and guidance there has
been wonderful advancement among the pu
pils. The exercises of the pupils of both
sexes were received with marked approval by
the large audience present, and if we are to
judge from appearances will have a good ef

present that it will be a wiso thing to unite

That portion of Gov Pillsbury's message
relating to the swindli ng railroad bonds is a
direct and intentional insult to every voter in
Minnesota who cast hiss, ballot against the
payment of th swindle, and Mr Pusey
should be condemned for putting it in. We.
who voted against the steal, are quietly rele
gated to one of two classes, fools or scoun
Now, as a voter who was in Minneso ta at
the time the bonds were issued, as one who
has tried hard to get at the exact equities of
the case, I protest against being crowded into
either of the above classes.
I distinctly remember, prior to the last
general election, how the leading politicians
of both the great parties plead and begged
that the swindling bon ds be not brought in
to the campaign as a disturbing element.
But Mr Banning, with rare honesty and in
dependence, declined to endorse the bargain,
and daied to speak the truth wherever he ad
dressed audiences. Governor Pillsbury dis
he ld his tongue on the subject until
after election, and then takes occasion, in his
first public utterance, to brand his opponents
on this question as either idiots or rascals.
If I knew nothing about the merits or de
merits of the question itself, and was a
stranger to every fact in its history except
the means of wholesale bribery and corrup
tion used always to force its settlement, I
should oppose it simply on that ground.
A measure which needs a corruption fund to
secure its passage by a vote of the people,
must either inherently bad. or else th
people must be set down as innately dishonest.
I prefer to consider the first proposition as
true, and denounce the bond proposition
voted on last June as dishonesta trick of
designing men, subsidized by the bondhold
ers to consummate a transparent fraud and
Gov. Pillsbury should know that on the
stump and elsewhere, pending the vote
the proposition, he was accused of being an
interested party, of having a hand in th
pool. This I do not assert, because
I do not know it to be true
but the ready and valuable maim er in which
the Pioneer Press rushes to his defense as
"an honest man" would lend color to the
suspicions of those who did accuse him of
being an interested party in the passage of
the fraudulent measure for the payment of
At any rate, Gov Pillsbury and Mr. Pusey
should be more cautious how they denounce
other people as knaves or fools. RIGHT,
