The Commissioner Districts.
How about the commissioner distiicts I
would be a joke if the board of county com
missioners were also legislated oat of office.
Anyway the commissioners receive all allu
sions to the subject as a joke at present, and
await further developments. Th commis
sioner districts in the city have been defined by
law so as to include certain wards by name and
number without any regard to local or specific
boundaries. The third commissioner district
was defined as embracing tho eighth, ninth
and tenth wards, and as such wards
are legislated out of existence
there seems to be no district
for Commissioner Jones to represent. Under
the new i egime Commissioner Palmer also finds
himself a resident of another district, inas
much as he does not now live in any of the
wards defined as constituting his particular
territory. Commissioner Glenn is alone unaf
fected by the change in the city, and, together
with the the two members from the country, now
holds the only undisputed seat. Wh should
the intention of the law be taken into consid
eration when Commissioner Hedderly was oust
ed from office for temporarily remov
ing from his district with the
intention of returning. Perhaps this
matter is worth looking into, and perhaps
it won't be necessary for Judge Young to de
cide who is commissioner of a district that by
the original definition of its bounds is wiped
out of existence. Why not legislate a few
county officers out of office as well as all but
two of the city officials? Let's have a new
deal all around, and make things lively!

[Washington Cor. Cincinnati Enquirer.
President Hayes treated Congress to a sur
prise to-day by sending in his veto message
to the silver billno surprise because of the
veto, but rather because it came in one day
sooner than was expected and while it did
not, for this reason, it might have caught
members napping and a light attendance in
both Houses. If the President had such a
sinister object in view, it failed of its pur
pose for, strange to say, the attendance was
unusually large in both branches. At half
past one o'clock the President's private secre
tary appeared at the bar of the House and
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT.
The House was at this tune engaged in a
roll-call on a bill to permit some lieutenant
to accept a decoration from the Sultan of
Turkey and when Randall tore open the
long official envelope and disclosed to view a
bill, everybody knew that a veto had come,
for bills are never sent back by the President
under other circumstances. Members be
came all at once all impatience to have the
pending roll-call completed. Stephens,
whose committee room is near by, was in
formed of the receipt of the message, and
rolled himself in on his wheeled chair, and
immediately became the center of a group of
silver men, whTTappeared to be discussing
the best course to pursue. Doubt of the
course of action was not of long duration.
As soon as Stephens could be heard, he
moved to go to business on the Speaker's
table, and take up the President's message.
There was not the slightest objection, and,
amid a breathless silence, the important
document was read. The reading of the
message concluded, the bill as passed was
read, when Randall announced that
THE QUESTION BEFORE THE HOUSE
was, whether the House, on leconsideration,
would pass the bill, the veto of the President
to the contrary notwithstanding. Stephens
was again ready with a demand for the pre
vious question, while the hall resounded with
calls for yeas and nays, members having
seemingly lost sight of the fact that the con
stitution required that. In the midst of the
confusion, Fort, of Illinois, demanded a sec
ond reading of the message, but "object"
and "I object" resounded on all sides and
then Fort suggested that it be printed in the
Record, when Sam Cox, rushing from his
seat towards the speaker's desk, yelled out
an objection, and added that the message
A FRAUD FROM A FRAUD.
Meanwhile, amid all the noise, the reading
clerk had called the first name on the roll,
when McCook, of New York, insisted upon
being recognized, and demanded that Cox's
language be taken down at the clerk's desk.
It was disrespectful to the President, and
McCook was not disposed to let the language
go unchallenged., Cox reiterated his remark
and stuck to it, when Randall tried to pour
oil on the troubled waters on the Republican
side by saying that Cox had no
right to make the remark because he did not
have the floor, as the chair had not recog
nized him. This was a pacification, and the
terrible punishment of having the words
read at the clerk's desk was not inflicted. As
the roll-call progressed it became evident
that the line was to be strictly drawn be
tween the silver and anti-silver men, as it
has been on every other occasion when the
question has been up.
The only break from the old line was that
of Martin I. Townsend, of New York, who
has hitherto voted against the bill in all
forms and at all stages, but who to-day
voted to pass the bill over the veto. The
vote on the motion made last Friday to lay
the bill on the table was exactly reversed to
day, with the single exception above noted.
The announcement of the result was re
ceived with every demonstration of
APPLAUSE AND APPROVAL
by a large majority on the floor and in the
galleries, which were crowded. Juat before
the result was announced Felton and Cook,
of Georgia, Bragg of Wisconsin and Kelly of
Pennsylvania, whose absence at tha roll-call
had been accounted for by reason of illness,
came into the hall just in time to be
recorded in the affirmative. Word had been
sent to them as soon as the message was re
ceived, and each hastly left a sick bed to ap
pear at the House and vote. Their votes were
not needed, but they were determined to be
recorded. Southard of Ohio was paired
with "Waite of Connecticut, and Keifer with
Cabell, of Virginia. Gardner was absent,
unpaired. The rest of the Ohio delegation,
except Garfield, voted solid in the affirma
THE BILL PASSED BY A VOTE OF 19 6 TO 73
and of the latter sixty-four votes came from
New Enland, New York, Pennsylvania and
Delaware, the bondholding section. Cain,
of South Carlina Gibson, of Louisiana Bis
bee of Florida, and Schleicher, of Texas
were the only Southern men voting no. Gar
field, of Ohio Williams and Ellsworth, of
Michigan Stewart, of Minnesota, and Davis,
of California were the only Western men vot
ing that way. Hardly had the Speaker of
the House announced that the bill would be
sent immediately to the Senate, when the
denseness of the "people's" galleries rose
almost en masse, thronged out into the
upper coridors, rushed pell-mell down the
stairs, and started in hot haste on a race
TO THE SENATE END OF THE CAPITOL.
An old candy woman whose stand is near the
rotunda, was almost upset by the hurrying
through. "What's the excitement?" she
quivered out, as she tried to protect her
wares. "Silver Bill shouted a perspiring
son of Africa, as he rushed past. She looked
after him to see if he was crazy, but he was
already out of sight. Then she repeated-her
question to one and another, but "Silver

each seemed to begrudge the time to say
that. It was verily a mob of people. An

seemed to fear the silver bill would walk into

reach the scene. It was a strange sight, this
very commonplace mobnot lawless, but
fired with enthusiasm at the prospect of a

breathless and flushed, darted quickly into

lawlessness, but with the disorder and con
fusion incident to the shuffling of so many
feet and the movement of so many bodies,

which they speedily blackened. Chair after
chair and sofa after sofa was brought in, and
still there were more men than seats.
THE SCENE IN THE SENATE.
The soporific, dignity of the Senate was
shocked. "I cannot talk in such a noise,"
said David Davis, who was on the floor.
Then Ferry arose in all his greatness and
warned the galleries to make no demonstra
tion on pain of arrest. What folly! The
galleries were already painfully quiet, and
the front rows hanging breathless over
the parapets. The tumult was on the
floor. The privileged classes were walk
ing, talking, laughing, mindful only of
themselves. The people were waiting, im
patient for the silver bill. On the floor Jay
Gould was lobbying vigorously for gold. In
the gallery John Smith,' Sambo Hamilton
and Mike Sullivan were waiting, anxious for
silver. On the floor were Huntington and
Schelley, of the Central Pacific ringmen
of money. In the gallery were many heirs
to want. The scene was again suggestive.
At last order was restored, and the drowsy
debate dragged along. Few heeded it. Most
watched the southern door. "Here it comes!"
"No, it is only a clerk with a package of
"AH, NOW WE HAVE IT
A dozen subdued voices announced the
discovery of twice as many eyes, and sure
enough, the silver bill stood in the' august
presence of the Senate, chained to a veto.
His presence was announced, and he was
seated on Ferry's table. The drowsy debate
made another spasmodic attempt to go on.
No one wanted to hear it. They openly
urged Senators to take up the silver bill. The
galleries shifted about impatiently. Conk
hng saw an opportunity to make political
capital, and very cleverly he seized it. In
terrupting the long debate, he pressed for a
vote on the veto message. Very cleverly, he
avowed that he would not make a motion,
but more cleverly he instigated Allison to
make a motion to suspend all other business
TAKE UP THE VETO MESSAGE.
For a brief moment the gold-bugs showed
fight. Edmunds made the point of order
that under rules 8 and 9 the veto message
could only be considered in the morning
hour, which was already exhausted for the
day. Ferry decided against him. Allison
pressed his motion, and it was carried, and
the bill and the veto were read. Then Whyte
tried to effect delay by moving that the bill
and message be printed. It was useless. In
the twinkling of an eye Allison had been
called and had voted. The roll-call was now
begun, and no power in the Senate could,
stop it. Excitable Cockrell, of Missouri, an
ardent silver man, clapped his hands for joy
and let slip an explosive "Good!" The ques
ON THE FINAL PASSAGE OF THE BILL OVER THE
Senators and correspondents were all busy
checking on yea and nay lists. Booth, the
first doubtful man, was absent. Cameron,
of Wisconsin, the second doubtful one, voted
"Yea," and there was an involuntary expres
sion of pleasure. Christiancy did not re
spond. The call progressed steadily to Hill.
"Aye!" responded the Georgian, and "that
settles it!" burst from twenty pairs of lips,
Then Kellogg voted yes, and it became only
a question of the size of the majority over
two-thirds. Paddock, Windom and Sauls
bury stood up to fight like men, and
the grand total rolled up was 46 to 19, and
THE PRESIDENT WAS EXTINGUISHED.
There was a burst of applause as the re
sult was announced. Christiancy and
Sharon were the only Senators absent un
paired. There were three sets of pairs, one
nay being paired with two yeas, as it was a
two-thirds vote. Anthony, nay, was paired
with Oglesby and Ransom, yea Burnside
with Cameron of Wisconsin and Booth,
Cameron withholding his vote, and Edwards
with Cameron *f Pennsylvania and Arm*
strong. With the announcement of the
result, all interest in the Senate proceedings
ceased. The galleries were bare in five min
utes, and the Senatorsunmindful of the
timber debate, which was resumedgather
ed in the cloak-rooms to compare notes.
THE SOENE IN THE CLOAK BOOMS
after the slaughter of the veto was ani
mated. Silver man after silver man came in,
and all were beaming. "The best piece of
work that has been done the Senate for
years!" said Cockrell, rubbing his hands
gleefully. "Reminds me of old Andy John
son times," said Bailey, "when a measure
would be formulated in caucus before break
fast in the morning, passed by both houses
at noon, sent to Johnson, returned with a
veto, passed over the veto and made a law
by night." "It's a good piece of work, well
done," said Beck. "Satisfactory," mur
mured Voorhees. "I knew how it would
come out," said Allison, softly, his face
aglow with pleasure. And so it went.
It was noticeable that not a single Senator
commented in any way on the character of
the veto message itself. "Well, Senator,
you were right," said the Enquirer man to
Matthews. "Yes, I thought I was not mis
taken," he replied and then he beamed
knowingly. "If you will read my speech,"
said Ben Hill, "you will see that I said I
would vote for the amended bill, and I
should have voted for it had I been present
when the final vote was taken." Ben says
his people are with him, which is true, but
Ben has been in Georgia since the bill first
passed, and he votes different now.
MISERABLE LITTLE EATON.
The only hard money man who seemed
distressed was Eaton. "Well, Senator, what
next?" said the Enquirer man to him.
"Greenbacks," he replied laconically. "And
then?" "Inflation." "And then?" "Hell!"
Not caring to follow tho Connecticut Senator
that far, the Enquirer next caromed on Ker
nan. "We can live under any laws you can,"
said he to Beck. "And we are bound you
shall live under good laws," retorted the
Kentuckian. "Well, I don't fancy this law
is going to do any serious harm," added
Kernan "I fought it because I think the
principle is wrong, but I really think the
country can absorb a hundred millions of
silver without any harm."
EnquirerThen you do not think this
bill will drive all the gold out of the country?
KernanNo, I do not. Indeed, if this bill
should prove a bulwark to defend us from
something else, it may prove a blessing in
Beck lay stretched upon a sofa. He cried
out gleefully: "Matthews has promised to
get me the first dollar coined, and I have
promised to give it to Bill Eaton to wear
around his neck." So the badinage flew.
All seemed glad the fight was over.
THE FEELING OVER THE MESSAGE
is that it is a weak State paper, is fallacious
in argument and advances no real objections
which have not heen exploded. "John
Sherman wrote it," is the remark made on
every side. A Senator opposed to the bill,
after the reading of the message, was heard,
to remark that he would have far preferred
that Hayes should have signed the bill rather
than have sent such a weak remonstrance
against the measure. It was generally ex
.pected that some of those opposed to the bill
in the Senate would at all events attempt to
defend the objections set forth by the Presi
dent, but they fell upon the Senate as such
commonplace, threadbare arguments that no
single Senator essayed to make a defense for
him. True, Edmunds, and Whyte of Mary
land, did, in a feeble way, endeavor to have
consideration of the bill postponed until the
President's veto message could be printed.
Even this customary respect was denied the
paper, which caused Edmunds to inject a re
mark that he did not think the precipitate
action of the Senate was the
dent with respect.

say that he was satisfied that bis veto, would

he would have preferred to have had the

BOW THE WRECKER TAKES IT.
Secretary Sherman is represented as being
quite moody over what he deems the hasty
action of the Senate. He fully expected
that Conkiing would have embraced the op
portunity the veto afforded to have made a
speech in opposition to the bill, and that
other Senators would have given the message
respect enough at least to have forced some
little discussion upon it. The day's action is
THE GOSSIP OF THE HOTELS
to-night. The prevailing sentiment seems
to be one of relief that the bill is passed.
Even enemies of the bill share this senti
ment, because in view of assured legislation
to remonetize silver, there is unanimity of
opinion that it was better to have it setttled
SOMETHING TO COME.
Ultra silver men say that the present bill
is only a foretaste of what the gold-bugs of
the East may expect, and that no efforts on
their part shall be relaxed until the silver
dollar is made equal with gold, without re
striction or limitation, the resumption act
is repealed, and national bank circulation
wiped out. Movements in this direction will
be begun at once. To-morrow the Senate
finance committee will take action on the
resumption repeal bill, which has passed
the House, and it is hoped to report ittothe
Senate next week, and have it disposed of
speedily. The bill to wipe out the national
bank cirulation will be reported to the House
as soon as the banking and currency com
mittee is called, which will be within a fort

State paper. Chittenden, of New York, one
of the gold-bugs, says: "I am glad the
President so forcibly defends the national
honor." Ben Butler says: "A bad argu
ment in a good case." He had hoped the
President would veto itnot for the grounds
he takes in the message, but because of the
restriction on free coinage of the silver dol
lar. I might keep on and quote ad libitum,
but the expressions of sentiment herein set
forth, serve to show the general feeling of
members of the lower House. Summed up,
the Republican opponents of the bill are
disgusted because the President did not
handle the subject with more force, and the
Democrats, for like reason, are pleased be
cause he could not combat the bill with more
cogent arguments and it has been many
days since the majority of both branches of
Congress, of both political schools, feel in
as happy a frame of mind as they do to
Possible Reasons Assigned for the Mildness
of Our Winter Just PastProspects of
Early Wheat SowingThe New "Globe"
Heartily Endorsed, Ac.
To tke Editor of Tax GLOBE.
SAUK RAPIDS, Minn., March 6.Our planet
seems to be passing through some hitherto
untraversed reaches of space where wintry
elements are unknown. This supposition
may possibly be entertained as reasonably as
any other, to account for the mildness of
the winter months just terminated and for
the beginning of the first month of spring.
And it would seem, too, that this remarkable
and long continued condition of the weather
is not only observable in our State, but
throughout the whole of the northern half
of the continent.
I am not aware that any scientific con
conclusions have been reached, or even at
tempted to account for this pheonomenon.
It is, possibly, beyond the scope of scien
tific investigation and human intelligence.
However this may be, it is quite certain,
that no winter precisely like it, or very
nearly approximator to the character of
the one just past, has occurred in this high
latitude in our continent, in the experience
of the white race here. What traditions
there may be among the savage tribes, re
specting the question, would be carious to
At this point on the upper Mississippi,
the farmers are already speculating on the
propriety of sowing seed, and should their
be no decided change threatening cold and
a refrosting of the soil, the Bowing will
commence at an early day. After a winter
so snowless, and consequently, so dull, our
farmers are more impatient to commence
agricultural operations, and an early begin
ning is anticipated.
In the mean time, while our old globe
seems to be undergoing a rejuvenescence, the
new GLCBE that has swung itself into the
horizon of Minnesota at St. Paul, blazes
with an effulgence of light and beauty,
which promises to exceed that of all lumi
naries of its class, visible within the limits
of our good State and even beyond. It is,
indeed a splendid addition to the newspaper
galaxy of our enterprising commonwealth,
and a new glory in its political astronomy!
As soon as it arose into the political heavens,
the glasses of all the Republican sanctums
of the State (and their name is legion)
were anxiously turned upon it, and the re
sult is a generous and hearty hail from them
all to its advent. For this evidence of the good
will and respect of our political adversaries
the hitherto long unchampioned Democracy
of the State can but join with the alert
editor of HE GLOBE in thanking them for
their commendatory notices of the new
luminary, with the hope that some of its
scintillations may penetrate their dim abodes
HE GLOBE is being perused with advantage
by many of the citizens of this county, and
efforts made to give it all possible circulation.
The officially reported number of Cuban in
surgents who have surrendered from February
