THE Chicago Times denounc es the Demo-
crats for selecting Fields for doorkeeper in

tition, and not laws, which the people need
to protect them in the matter of school

dirty blackguards howl, for they see in it the
downfall of their grand scheme for plunder-

When Gen Shields was elected to Congress
by some four thousand majority, the Repub-
licans under lead of Ben. Butl er kicked him
out. Now they suddenly discover that
he is an old and wounded patriot, who
ought to be provided for, and they are
correspondingly shocked at the idea
of selecting a former confederate
soldier for an office. Their memories are so
conveniently brief that they have forgotten
that Grant appointed a confederate soldier
(Ackerman), to a seat in his cabinet and
that Mr. Hayes has another confederate,
(Key), in the councils of the nation. There
too, was Longstreet, who was a most violent
rebel, but who was good enough to be col-
lector of New Orleans under Grant, and so
we might continue almost indefinitely. Now,
because out of all the offices at their disposal
he Demccrats give one to a reconstructed
confederate, there is a cry of treason from
the loyal postmasters. Their game is too
transparent. The Democrats simp ly refused
to accept Republican dictation, as we trust
they always will.
THE DUTY OF DEMOCRATS IN AND
OUT OF CONGRESS.
Nothing can prevent the election of a
Democratic President in 18S0, except Dem
ocrats themselves. There seems to have
been almost a fatality attending Democratic
organization. Whether a fatality or not,
certainly a want of wisdom and harmony
and good judgment has char
acterized Democratic management.
Tilden's campaign, although Tilden
himself had the reputation of being a second
Dean Richmond, a Talleyrand in politics, was
a most wretchedly managed affair.
Tilden's optics were bounded by the
boundaries of New York State. He was
nominated becauae it was conceded that he
could carry New York. The South had no
candidate, and the West yielded to New
York. Now just look at the lit
tle State of Florida. Had the
electoral vote of Florida been secured and
counted, Tilden would be President de facto.
But instead of attending to such an impor
tant factor in the election, the bloodsucker's
nephew Pelton, and the odoriferous Finley,
and a hundred other vagrants stuck to "my
uncle," relieving him of his ducats, and dis
gusting his best friends into almost satisfac
tion at his defeat.
The Western campaign was entrusted to
Pelton and Finley. No decent man could en
dure this exhibition, and the result wasthat
not nly in Minnesota, but in Wisconsin, Iowa,
Indiana, and Illinois disgust rendered the best
Democrats almost indifferent.
As to the future, the South and
West will elect the President. There
will be Texas, Louisiana, Alabama,
Mississippi, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina,
North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia,
Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas,
Indiana, Ohio, solidly Democratic. Now
what are the Republicans going to do about
The Democratic party must maintain
its integrity, fulfill the highest behests of
patriotism, be true to the party, to the coun
try, to law and to justice, and to parity
among all races, and there will
be no doubt of triumph in 1880.
Elect a Democrat President and in two years
Minnesota will be Democratic, and the gov
ernment will hereafter remain in the hands
of a majority of the people. We shall no
longer be ruled by a minority, but the people
will rule, and the constitution and principles
of the government will gain their last victory
over faction, bayonets, carpet-bag rogues, old
Wells, Anderson and Fraud.
DON'T WANT TO HURT THEIR FEEL-
The St. Peter Tribune pleads guilty to the
charge of suppressing news relative to affairs
at the Insane Asylum, and defends its course
on the ground that "the friends of patients
feel a delicacy about giving publicity to
these matters, which ought to be respected."
Certainly. If a .patient is allowed to jump
into the river and drown himself, "the feel
ings of the friends,vBhould
prevent an in-
quest to ascertain who was to blame. And
then, when the feeding process which Dr.
Daniels describes, is used, it would hurt the
"feelings of friends" to have it made public.
Here is Dr. Daniel's description:
A piece of wood three-fourths of an inch
square, and long enough to reach across the
face, is partially inserted in the mout h. A
central opening in this piece of wood, allows
the passage of a flexible tube, through which
the food is conducted to the stomach.
A piece of wood long enough to reach
across the face is a nice little instrument.
Then, too, it would hurt the "feelings of
friends," to have it published that one man
holding one hand sat upon the chest of a
patient lying flat upon aboard or table, that
a second person held his other hand, that a
third rammed a wooden plug three or four
inches down his throat, while a fourth
poured hot soup from a pitcher down the
victim's esophagus. It hurts the patient a
little of course, but he plays a neat trick by
dying in fifteen minutes and it might hurt
some one else to havethis brutality pronounced
murder. So the Tribune is very kind in re
gard to the "feelings of friends" and don't
mention such little circumstances. Such lit
tle incidents as murder are not worthy
of being made public. The State pays $125,-
000 per year to employ men to commit mur
der and furnish them with all of the neces
sary paraphernalia without extra cost. It is a
model arrangement and we all ought to keep
quiet for fear we will hurt somebody's feel
ings. We might even wound Betts' sensi
bilities, and that would be cruel.

THAT REPUBLICAN CAUCUS.
What a Hayes' Paper has to Report of the
[Wasington Special (April 5) Chicago Tribune.]
The meeting of the members of the na
tional Republican and Congressional com
mittees last night was called with the idea of
organizing a movement against the Presi
dent. The idea was to sanction the theory of
many disaffected Republicans that it is best
to throw the President overboard on the
threshold of the next campaign. The meet
ing was called by Wm. E. Chandler who call
ed it to order, and ex-Senator Logan took the
chair. In the general conversation there
was severe and pretty general denunciation
of the President and strong support for the
theory that the party could get along better
without him that he had destroyed it in the
South and crippled it in the North that he
did not treat prominent men in the party
with common decency that he repelled those
who wanted to be friendly that he was not
frank or truthful in his dealings that he
seemed to have no clear ideas of the situation
or work of the government.
Messrs. Foster, Hale, Page and Phillips,
contended that to break with the President
would be a most short-sighted policy that,
while matters'flight not be going to suit
them, many Republicans still think the sen
sible way of improving the situation was to
seek to restore and promote harmony. They
regarded a division of the party on the is
sue of hostility to the President, as fatal to
the next campaign.
The talk against the President finally be
came so unjust as to stir up Foster to a most
vigorous reply. Upon being asked what the
Republicans could say in defense of the ad
ministration on the stump, he began with
the Southern situation, and described it at
the time Hays came in. He claimed
that instead of^ Hayes destroying the
Republican party in the South, it was prac
tically dead in every Southern State when
he came in. He contrasted Hayes' cabinet
with Grant's the long array of subordinate
officers who had proved incompetent or un
faithful under Grant, with the fact that
under Hayes no scandal of any of Hayes'
appointees. He defended his appointments
in the main, and insisted that they could be
defended successfully before the people. He
claimed that there had been no year of purer
administration in the history of the govern
Upon the question of breaking with the
President, he denounoed it as a short-sighted
and suicidal policy. He warned those who
were criticising the President so severely
that the people would certainly attribute
these hostilities to personal disappointments
in regard to patronage, and that people
generally looked upon the present as an
'administration with honest purposes, and
upon those in Congress who were opposing
it as probably soreheads.
A Paragon of a Husband.
[New York Dispatch.]
"O my husband is quite a paragon of per
fection," said Mrs. A. to Mrs. B. "Ah, in
deed! Doesn't he drink any more?" asked
Mrs.B. "No," said Mrs. A. "About two
months ago he came home intoxicated, and
I told him if he ever did so again I'd go
home to ma, and he doesn't drink now."
"That accounts for it," said Mrs. B. "The
other night my husband met him in the
street hanging to a lamp-post, and asked
him why he didn't go home, and he eaid he
would as soon as he got sober." When
Mrs. A and Mrs. pass each other in the
street now, the coolness is as thick as a
quart of ice-cream.

At comm on law after a mortgage became for
feited by non-payment of the moneys secured
thereby, the mortgagee was authorized to pro
ceed immediately to obtain possession of the
mortgaged premises in an action of ejectment.
"By our statute a mortgage of real
property is not to be denied a conveyance, so
as to enable the owner of the mortgage to re
cover possession of the real property without a
foreclosure." Th effect of this statute is to
cut off the comm on law right to maintain an
action for the possession before foieclosure.
special provision of its charter, the St. Paul
& Pacific railroad company is empowered to
confer upon its mortgagees the right of pos
session of mortgaged property upon the com
mon law conditions, or upon any other con
ditions that may be agreed npon and expressed
in the mortgage. The effect is, that by these
charter provisions it is made competent for the
company by the terms of a mortgage or trust
deed, to confer upon its mortgagee or trustee a
right to the possession of mortgaged
property upon default in the pay
ment of money secured thereby
and such a right as will entitle the mortgagee
or trustee, to sustain an action under our prac
tice in the nature of ejectment to obtain
possession of it, is withhheld.
Held, That under the 9th and 21st articles of
the mortgage or trust, deed involved in this
action, in ease of default in the payment of
interest, according to the tenor of the coupons
annexed to the bonds secured by said mort
gage or trust deed, full power is expressly con
ferred upon the trustees to enter into and upon
all and singular the premises by the
mortgage or trust deed conveyed, or intended
so to be, and each and every part thereof, and
to have, hold and use the same, to operate and
conduct the business of the company's railway,
and to collect and receive all tolls, freights,
moneys, rents, issues, and profits of the same,
and every part thereof. Th result is,
that upon default upon the part of
the company, such as is alleged in thiB
case, as one of the facts upou which the trus
tees or mortgagees rest their rights to a fore
closure, and to a receiver, the trustees are en
titled to enter into and take possession of the
mortgaged property without legal proceedings,
if they are permitted so to do, and if not so
permitted, they are authorized to obtain pos
session by resorting to an action under our
code_ in the nature of an action of ejectment.
Having acquired possession, whether with or
without resource to legal proceedings, the trus
tees are expressly authorized to collect and re
ceive all tolls, freights, moneys, rents and
issues of the same, and to every part thereof.
This action is brought to foreclose the mort
gage or trust deed aforesaid,made by said com
pany to the plaintiffs as trustees. I aid of
the foreclosure a receiver is prayed for.
The prayer is that pending this
suit the court forthwith appoint a receiver to
take immediate possession, control and man
agement of the line of railroad from St. Paul
to Watab and of all the appurtenances, rolling
stock, lands and other property, belonging or
appertaining to said line of road and covered
by said mortgage of one million two hundred
thousand dollars, and that full power and au
thority be given to him to hold, use, manage,
control and operate the same with the usual
power of receiver in such case.
Held, that upon the foregoing facts the case
is void in which the plaintiffs have a complete
and adequate remedy at law in respect to the
very matters on account of which the
appointment of a receiver is
sought, and that therefore the plaintiffs are not
entitled to have such receiver appointed. The
ninth article of the mortgage or trust deed au
thorizes the trustees, upon the company's de
fault to take possession of the mortgaged prop
erty, and to have, hold and use the same, 'ope
rating by their superintendents, managers, re
ceivers or servants, or other attorneys or

not technical receivers, to be appointed by a
court, but the receivers of the trustees.

poration created by the Legislature of Minnesota,
executed on the second day of June, 1862, to the
plaintiffs, Edmund Bice, Horace Thompson, and
Samuel J. Tilden, as trustees, a mortgage, or deed of
trust, to secure an issue of the bonds of said com
pany, to the amount of $1,200,000. This action is
brought for the purpose of foreclosing said mort
gage, or deed of trust, andin aid of the foreclosure,
and upon sundry allegations in the complaint, a re
ceiver is prayed for. The prayer is, that "pending
this suit,the court forthwith appoint a receiver to take
immediate possession, control and management of
the line of railroad, from St. Paul to

lands and other property belonging
or appertaining to said line of

THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, TUESDAY MORNING, 'APRIL 9, 1878-
under our practice in the nature of ejectment to ob
tain possession of it Is withheld.
We have next to took at the mortgage or trust deed
for tbe purpose of ascertaining whether the company
has availed Itself of the power thus conferred. The
ninth article of the mortgage or trust deed is as fol
lows, viz: "In case default shall be made in the
payment of any Interest on any of the aforesaid
bonds secured by this instrument, issued or to be
issued according to the tetor of the coupons thereto
annexed, or in any requirement to bedone or kept by
the party of the first part, and if such default shall
continue for the period of six months, it shall be
lawful for the said trustees or the survivors or sur
vivor or them or. their or his successors, personally,
or by his or their attorneys or agents
to enter into and upon all and singular the premises
hereby conveyed or intended so to be, and each and
every part thereof and to have, hold and use the
same, operating by their or his superintendents,
managers, receivers or servants or other attorneys or
agents of the said railway, and conducting the busi
ness thereof and making from time to time all re
pairs and replacements, and such useful alterations,
additions and improvements thereto as may seem to
them or him to be judicious, and to collect and re
ceive all tolls, freights, incomes, rents, issues and
profits of the same and of every part thereof, and
after deducting the expenses of operating the said
railway and conducting its business, and of all the
said repairs, replacements, alterations, additions and
improvements and all payments which may be made
for taxes, assessments, charges or liens prior to the
lien of these presents upon the said premises or any
part thereof, as well as a just compensation for their
or his own services, to apply the moneys arising as
aforesaid to the payment of interest in the order in
which such interest shall have become due or shall
become due rateably to the persons holding the cou
pons, evidencing the right to such interest, and after
paying all interest which shall have become due to
apply the sam to the satisfaction of the principal of
the aforesaid bonds which may be at any time un
paid rateably and without discrimination or prefer-
It wfll be seen that this article of the mortgage or
trust deed in case of default in the payment of in
terest according to the tenor of the coupons annexed
to the bonds, expressly confers upon the trustees full
power to enter into and upon all and singular the
premises by the mortgage or trust deed conveyed or
intended so to be, and each and every part thereof,
and to have, hold and use the same to operate and
conduct the business of the company's railway and
to collect and receive all tolls* freights, incomes,
rents, issues and profits of the same and of every
part thereof. The result is that under this article of
the mortgage or trust deed upon a default upon the
part of the company (the mortgagor) such as is al
leged as one of the facts upon which the
plaintiff (the trustees) rest their right to
maintain this action for a foreclosure and
their claim of a receiver the plaintiffs, the trustees,
are entitled to enter into and take possession of the
mortgaged property without legal proceedings if they
are permitted so to do, and if not so permitted they are
authorized to obtain possession by resorting to an
action under our code in the nature of an action of
ejectment. If any of the property, into possession
of which they are thus authorized to enter, is not
real estate, and therefore possession of it not attain
able by an action in the nature of ejectment, there
is no reason why possession may not be had by re
sorting to action of claim and delivery. Having
acquired possession of the mortgaged property,
whether with or without recourse to legal proceed
ings, the trustees are expressly authorized '"to col
lect and receive all tolls, freights, incomes, rents,
issues and profits of the same and of every part
thereof." All'this can be accomplished by proceed
ings at law.
The case is then one in which the plaintiffs have a
complete and adequate remedy at law in respect to
the very matters on account of which they seek the
appointment of a receiver, and as the appointment
of a receiver is an exercise of equitable
Jurisdictionpurely so in a case of this kindthe
fact that the plaintiffs have this complete and ade
quate remedy at law is in accordance with a familiar
rule, a sufficient reason why a receiver should not be
appointed. In the case at bar, it is proper to add
that the complaint does not allege that the trustees
have attempted to obtain possession of the mort
gaged property by entry or otherwise, nor that they
have even demanded such possession. Neither, so
far as we discover, is there anything in the affidavits
used upon the hearing of the motion for a receiver
tending to show any such attempt or demand.
From the foregoing considerations it follows, in
our opinion, that the motion for a receiver was
properly denied. It remains, however, to consider
some of the points made by the counsel for the
plaintiffs in favor of a contrary conclusion whichwould
not appear to be substantially disposed of by what
we have already said. It is argued that the trustees
are entitled to a receiver because by the ninth article
of tiie mortgage or trust deed it is provided that up
on the company's default the trustees may enter
into and upon all the premises conveyed or intended
to be conveyed by the mortgage or trust deed, and
each and every part thereof, and have, hold and ttse
the same, "operating by their superintendents, man
agers, receivers or servants or other attorneys or
agents." The claim is that the receivers here men
tioned are receivers appointed by a court, and that,
therefore, express authority is given to the trustees
to demand the appointment of such receiver as a con
tract right. Irrespective of the doubt whether it is
competent for parties to prescribe the action of a
court in any such way as this, it must be apparent
upon a little reflection that the word
"receivers," as used in- the mort
gage or trust deed, cannot have the signifi
cation contended for. For a receiver appointed by
a court is the receiver and efficer of the court, while
the receiver contemplated in the mortgage or tniBt
deed is the receiver of the trusteesstheir receiver,
to use the precise language of the instrument, and in
no sense a technical receiver to be appointed by a
court. The only other positions taken by plaintiff's
counsel, to which we deem it necessary par
ticularly to advert further, are such as are. taken
with reference to the provisions of our statute (title
xii, ch. 66, gen. st.) in regard to receivers and to the
practice of courts of equity in appointing receivers
irrespective of statutory authority, as to all those po
sitions. We remark generally that they ilo not.
Neither does the reasoning, nor do the authorities by
which they are sought to be sustained, fairly show
any right to a receiver in the case at bar in which the
plaintiffs have an adequate and complete remedy in
the premises at law, and without any necessity for
calling upon a court of equity to appoint a receiver.
If there was not this adequate and complete remedy
at law, the considerations urged by plaintiffs' coun
sel would certainly possess great weight. JBut the
object here sought by the appoinment of a receiver
is to lay hold of and preserve the very "tolls, freights,
incomes, rents, issues and profits," which the plaint
iffs are by the terms of the company's char
ter and of the 'mortgage or trust deed authorized
and empowered to lay hold of andpreserve by tak
ing possession of the mortgaged premises without
suit, if they are permitted so to do, and if not so per
mitted, then by proceedings at law.
These considerations appear to us to dispose of
the case and to render it unnecessary for visto extend
this opinion further.
The order denying the plaintiffs' application for a

Michael W. Nash, appellant, vs. Minneapolis
Mill Company and Dorilus Morrison, re
The mill company owned a strip of land in
Minneapolis lying along near the river and con
structed through it a canal into which it took
water at the upper end and furnished it for
water power to the tenants to wh om it rented
mill sites on each 6ide of the canal. I rented
these mill sites with the right of way across
the canal to each tenant over this canal, for its
entire length and breadth was constructed
a platform of timbers and planks
which was used for over ten years with the
knowledge and acquiesence of the company, by
all persons having business with the mills
along the sides of the canal in the same way as
a public thoroughfare is used. Morrison was
the company's tenant of a mill Bite abutting on
the canal and a sub-tenant of his constructed
a part of the platform opposite the premises
sub-let. This sub-lease expired, leaving Mor
rison in possession under the lease to him of
the mill site let to him by the company.
Held, that' as to all persons going upon this
platform to transact business with mills along
the canal, it was the duty of the company, and
not of Morrison to use ordinary care and dili
gence to keep the platform.
Order affirmed as to Morrison and reversed,
and a new trial ordered as to mill company.
A Connection by Marriafie.
[Washington (D. C.) Herald.]
A good thing is told of one of our city
belles, Miss L., noted for her wit. At a din
ner party the lady in question, who is a
daughter of a distingished judge, was seat
ed next to a gentleman whom she had not
met before, and who was on a visit to the
city on business, which had brought him in
contact with the judge mentioned, who had
shortly before decided a case against him.
At the dinner the gentleman, who had not
caught the name of the lady when introduc
ed, took occasion to vent his feelings and
express his opinion of the judge in terms
anything but complimentary. An awful
pause in the conversation indicated some
thing wrong, and the gentleman took occa
sion to express to the lady his hope that the
judge was no relation of hers, to which, to
the infinite amusement of all present, she
replied: "Oh, no, only a connection of my
mother's by marriage." A shout of laugh
ter could not be prevented, and the gentle
man, after a little reflection, came slowly to
the conclusion that the judge's family were
too much for him.

on them is rapidly increasing. Th habit has
been never to feed the stock any corn or hay
whatever, to help them through the winter be
tween the perishing of the old grass and the
coming of the new. Those that cannot tide
over the crisis on dead grass are allowed to die.
