STANLEY MATTHEWS, now that Congress
has adjourned, has no Senatoiial privileges
to stand upon, and has determined, so it is
said, to stand upon his dignity in lefusing
to appear before the Potter committee.
This is nonsense. It is equivalent to saying
he will stand on nothing.
HAYES declares that if Congress will not
pay the expenses of the peace commission,
he will pay them himself. Well, as he was
the only person who was benefited by the
mission, we can see no good reason why he
should not pay the bills. It would be an
eminently proper proceeding.
THE Nationals, who assembled in St. Louis
Gn Thuisday, have some very good theories
of government. They invite the co-opera
tion of all good citizens in effecting reforms
that seem to indicate that they regard the
millenium is near at hand. The trouble
with them is that they want to do too much
at one time.
JIM ANDERSON has proved himself moie
than a match for the Matthews whitewash
ing committee. He yesterday refused to
testify as to the facts implicating Matthews
in dishonorable transactions, and the com
mittee, having no power to compel him to
answer, were obliged to adjourn "without day.
He made a proposition, however, to appear
before the Potter committee with Senator
Matthews, and that each should be allowed to
cross-examine the other. The proposition
was not accepted.
THE execution of the murderers Sherry
and Connolly at Chicago yesterday for a
most atrocious murder, may prove a whole
Bome lesson to the sluggers and slashers of
that depraved city. Although there have
been over three hundred murders committed
in Chicago since August, 1871, the date of
the last execution, the perpetrators
have all escaped the gallows, and
many of them are now roaming
at large unwhipt of justice. This laxity in
the execution of the law has no doubt em
boldened the murderously inclined to deeds
of violence. They have been wont to de
clare that hanging was played out in that
city, and snapped their fingers at the officers
of the law. If this double execution is fol
lowed up by a few more incidents of the
Bame sort, human life may become reason
ablv safe in Chicago.
THIS is a reform government, sure enough.
Some months ago the assistant United States
district attorney of Chicago undertook to
investigate the conduct of the contractors
who were charged with building the custom
house there. The facts showed that the
government had been swindled out of over
half a million dollars thus far, the supervis
ing architect of the treasury and the local su
perintendent of conptruction being implicat
ed in the frauds. The facts were submitted to
the attorney general, who testified his appre
ciation of the service by writing to the dis
trict attorney at Chicago, suggesting that the
government could afford to dispense with
the services of the assistant who exposed
the rascalities of the custom house ring.
Let no man guilty of exposing fraud escape

THE New York Senatorship is beginning
to attract considerable atttenion among the
politicians tbe metropolis. Conklmg is
of course, a candidate, but is opposed by
Morgan, Everts and Curtis. He has, how
ever, the support of the custom house ring
for which he fought so stubbornly and suc
cessfully against the administration. Everts
is lacking in personal popularity, though
his ability is admitted, while Curtis is tb
candidate of the kid-glove aristocracy who
never elect anybody. His only formidable
foe, theiefore, is Morgan, who, besides be
ing acceptable to the adminstration, is on
good terms with the custom house gang.
Conkling, however, may be said to have the
best backing. is supported by Jay
Gould's paper, and it is said that Tammany
Hall will give him whatever support may be
necessary to win victory. His espousal of
the cause of Fenton duiing the last day of
the session of Congress has conciliated that
gentleman's friends, and he may count on
their aid. Altogether it is very probable that
Conkling will be his own successor, and vt-ill
continue to be a thorn in the side of the
Presideut until his fraudulency shall step
down and out of office.
SPECIE RESUMPTION DEFEATED.
In the last hours of the session of Con
gress at least one important measure was de
feated by the Republican Senate which has
long been demanded by the people at large
to fully establish the credit and faith of the
government. The Democratic House of
liepresentatives had passed, by a decisive
majority, a bill making the currency of the
United States receivable for duties on im
ports and in payment for bonds of the
United States, thus placing greenbacks on
an equality with gold, on and after the 1st of
October next. The bill came to the Senate
for concurrence on Wednesday last, where it
was read the first time and objection to its
consideration entered, by which means it
was defeated for the session. Senator Voor
hees, of Indiana, did all in his power to se
em its passage, but his efforts weie una
vailing, as the rules of the Senate prevented
ita consideration except in its regular older,
which could not be reached.
This is another sample of the insincerity
of the professions of the Republican party.
Ever since the war they have warmly es
poused the cause of specie resumption, and
as long as it was impossible to attain that
object have been particularly fond of offering
measures with that end in view, knowing
tall well the impossibility of bringing it
about. But now, when gold and greenbacks
are almost at a par, and spec re
sumption is possible, they persist in
giving a fictitious value to gold by insisting
that it alone shall be receivable for duties
and in exchange for bonds. The bill passed
by the House was designed and would have
had the effect of increasing the value of the
government's promises to pay, and would
have practically and at once brought about
specie resumption. For, once make green
backs the equivalent of gold for all purposes
for which gold alone is now receivable, and
the difference in value between the two will
be wholly obliterated. People do not want
gold. What they desire is a currency that is
receivable in payment of all dues of what
ever nature, and it was to secure this cur
rency that the House bill in question was
The action of the Senate in this matter
proves that the influence of Wall
street speculators in our national
councils is still potent. Destroy
stroy the premium on gold and you destroy
their occupation. Hence they object most
strenuously to any legislature that will
bring about this result. The so-called re
sumption act, which goes into effect on the
1st of January next, does not effect this re
sult. It doe3 not enable the importers to
pay their duties in greenbacks. They must
first go to the trouble of exchanging them at
the treasury for gold, and with the gold pay
their imposts. This species of cir
cumlocution is designed to still maintain
the gold premium, and the pretense of
specie resumption is simply a sham. The
only way that our currency can be made the
equivalent of gold, and resumption be in
reality attained, is to make greenbacks an
absolute legal tender in payment of all
debts, both public and private. It is this
sort of resumption that the people want, but
it is not the sort that the Wall street specu
lators or their creatures in the Eepublican
Senate want. The hypocritical pretense of
Republicans for specie resumption was never
more forcibly illustrated than in their treat
ment of the House bill to increase the value
of the national evidences of debt and estab
lish our credit fully both at home and
THE JBBUCE TO T11E FORE.
It is very evident that Senator Bruce, of
Mississippi, is determined to get even with
the world some way. If he can't get forty
acres of land and a mule, he will at least
have the land and an academy, and such an
academy, too, as the world has never seen
a very prodigy. Daring the closing hours
of the session of the Senate the ebon-hued
representative of his race introduced a bill
that is decidedly unique, its provisions equal
ing in lucidity the renowned opinions of
Jack Bunsby. The bill proposes to estab
lish a national academy of education, giving
the preference to genius and talent, and the
land to the orphans of the Republic. It pro
vides for the appointment of a national
board of education who are to establish
academies in the several States,
and Congress is to appropriate an
nually one-third of the amount neces
sary to their support, providing the State
contribute the other two-thirds. It further
provides that there shall be established in
the District of Columbia an academy on the
basis of equality with any university in the
world, which shall be the model for the
We are glad to see that genius and talent
are at least to be appreciated and provided
with thirty-eight academies patterned after
a model "on the basis of equality with any
university in the world/' The fact that the
crop cf men of genius and talent bids fair
to be rather short is no objection to the
scheme. The academy buildings can afford
to wait for them to grow up with the land
that is to be given "to the orphans of the
Republic." (Query: Is the Republic dead?
If so, we're all "orflings") We would like
to see the efforts of this proposed national
board of education to establish an
academy "on the basis of
equality with any university in the
world." The faculty of Tale, and Harvard
and other of our universities, have had that
aim in view for a century, but they confess
to be yet very far from its attainment? This
may be due, however, to their neglect in not
calling Senator Bruce to their councils. We
presume that if they had consulted him a
year ago and followed nis ad-vice,CaxnVrid^e
Oxford, Edinburgh and Heidleberg would
have long ago paled their ineffectual fires
and retired from the educational arena for
THE WISCONSIN SCARE.
Thosevwho are well informed as to the
numbers and character of both Indians and
whites in Burnett county, Wis., are confi
dent that no outbreak of Indians could oc
cur there which a few resolute men might
not suppress. The Indians, at least in the
vicinity of the white settlements, are few in
nambei and, like those who infest the Min
nesota counties on tbe opposite side of tbe
St. Croix, are wanderers mostly dependent
for their living upon their traffic with the
whites, to whom they sell fish, maple sugar,
berries and Indian notions. Not many of
them are well armed or even accus
tomed to the regular use of any
sort of firearms. In the settled
part of the county, or near
to it there are not at any time more than a
score of Indian men and boys, and these are
in scattered families. The only large body
of Indians in that part of the country num
bers about one thousand. They are located
on the Lac Court d'Orreille reservation,
eastward of Burnett county, and are, like
the other reservation Chippewas a quiet and
eminently peaceful people.
The scare which has driven the Scandi
navian settlers from their homes in Burnett
county may have originated in wild reports
concerning a recent fight in Barron county
resulting from whisky and a personal quar
relin which a white man was wounded and
an Indian was killed. Or it may come from
the wild reports of an alliance with
the Sioux and of intended gatherings of the
Indians next week at Grantsburg and Bruns
wick, as related in our special dispatches.
But yet another possible cause for it is
suggestedwhich can be ascertained here
afterin what the simple Scandinavian
fugitives told our reporter at Rush City
they we re advised to leave as quickly as
possible, and they will probably find their
homes plundered by whites on their return.
The scare throughout appears to be one ol
the most senselesf on iscord.

The noble red man of Minnesota has few
pleasures and none which he more enjoys than
visiting. Th residents upon the Chippewa
reservations are limited by an order of the
Bureau at VVashington that they shall not go
beyond theii reservation boundaries without
pei mission of the Agent, and by instructions
.o the Agent, practically amounting to an
ide to keep his Indians at home. But at
cimes the quiet of reservation life becomes too

yet, when their simple mindB
can conceive 6ome sufficient excuse,
to visit their friends in St Paul and have a
oig table with the Governor of the State.
Their visits to St. Paul would be more frequent
were they not invariably rebuked by those
they respect most for coming without "permis

Earth and Red Lake reservations, selling
the Leech Lake and other reservations and
applying the pioceeds to assist the lemoved Ii
dians in opening farms. Their young men, the
old chiefs say, are anxious to live as white men
do, and have sent them to St. Paul to learn
what is being done for them at Washington.
They visited their old acquaintance, Hon.
Henry M. Rice, at his residence last evening,
and thus explained the object of their visit to
him. Learning that they came away without
permission from Major Kirg their agent, Mr.
Rice, after briefly telling them that Congress
had adjourned without authorizing any change
to be made in their affairs, expressed his regret
that they should have violated the rules estab

that notwithstanding i is good will towards them
and his desire to assist them when he could, he
did not wish to see them except when their agent
gave them permission to come. Their Great
Father, he told them, wished them to stay at
home and did not allow him to talk to them
or council with them, except when he, the
Great Father, sent him to them. Then the
visitors exposed their present difficultythey

how could they get back to their homes.

The third annual tournament of th-*
Sportsman's club came to a close last evening.
The GLOBE has given the score in full of the
events as they occurred upon the three days oi
the tournament, from which it has been seen
that in the attendance and the character of the
shooting, the meeting has been a grand success.
Thiee years ago the St. Paul club held its hist
tournament, open to all the non-profesbional
marksmen the State. Such a success wag
thi- first meeting, so liberally was it encour
aged by the marksmen of tbe State, and
so universal was the desire to have
the experiment repeated, that the club
decided to hold its second tournament
1 st year. This proving another succefS,
no urging was required to induce the holding
of the third meeting, concluded last evening.
And now that this meeting has pioven a greatei
success than either of the two preceding, tht
annual tournaments of the St. Paul club ma
be considered a settled fact. And further yet
while the same liberal policy is pursued by the
club, the same efforts put forth by the club to
provide sport and a pleasant time to partici
pants while in the city, it may also be consid
ered a settled fact that the annual recurring
tournaments will be successes.

The Forest Citys, Cleveland's base ball club,
largely made up of members of the St. Paul
Red Caps of last season, is playing a very strong
game as a rule this season. But Saturday last
the club seemed to indulge in a characteristic
Red Cap let down, and were beaten 13 to 2 by
the Rochesters of New York. The result was a
terrible disappointment to the Clevelanders
and was voiced by the press in vigorous langu
age. The screed of the Plaindealer is given
below. Its perusal will vividly awaken recol
lections in the minds of the St. Paul admirers
of the game of similar fiascos by the Red Caps
last ear. Indeed, the notice in substance, can
be found in reports by St. Paul papers, of such
games at the time. The Plalndealer says:
"About one more such game as the Forest
Citys played with the Rochesters on Saturday
afternoon wi thoroughly satisfy Cleveland
with base ball. Th idea that a club which
held the Milwaukees down to four runs, the
Chicagos to one and beat the Rochesters by a
score of 3 to 1 should allow the Rochesters to
make eighteen base hits, about as many two
base hits, a home run and win the game by a
score of 13 to 2 is "too thin for am thing."
One more like it will settle the attendance
for the future. Cleveland bas in a few short
weeks come to be the best place in the country
for crowds to Bee a match. Th reason is be
cause the people have found out that the home
nine is first class and can give them a 'rattl
ing" exhibition at any time. But nobody
wants to see such a game as the Forest Ciiys
played Saturday and excuses enough cannot be
invented to make it palatable. A repetition of
it will kill the goose which lays tha golden
The full score we omit as wholly unworthy
the space it would occupy. Th same clubs
play again to-day, which is the only excuse -we
have to offer for Saturday's haBCo."
Board of Public Works.
The weekly regular meeting of the board
public works was held yesterday morning, all
the members being present, and a large amount
of routine business was accomplished.
TO BE ADVEBTISED.
The clerk was directed to advertise the fol

The following was referred to the city attor
ney to draw up the contracts: Th contract of

Tenth street, between Jackson and Broadway
and the contract of August Myer for the con
struction ot sidewalks.
ESTIMATES AND PLANS.
The city engineer was directed to draw plans
and complete estimates for the following: The
opening and extension of Herman street, Sixth
ward a covered Eewer from the
end of the plank waterway on
Western avenue, near the corner of the Car
mter House, to a point where it will connect
with the sewer on Ramsey street the opening
and extension of a street at the intesection oi
Oakdale avenue and Ravine street, Sixth ward,

Bid well's addition, thence south along said
line to the boundary of the city the gradin? of
Como avenue, from the junction of Rice and
Bianca streets to the southeast corner ot lot 8,

The laying to grade of the sidewalk on the
Sibley street front of the Sherman house and
crosswalks on Third, Fourth and St Paul
streets and on Yiola avenue, were referred to
the member from tho Fifth ward.
THAT OBOVE 8TBEET GRADING
came up again under a report thereon from the
city engineer, who, in sending in his estimate
therefor, said: "The work ought not to be or
dered until the grade has been considered and a
new grade agreed upon and adopted by the city
council. The difficulty about the catch basinb
comes from the way the stieets are laid out.
Those on one side of Grove street aie nearlj
opposite the middle of blocks on the opposite
r-ide. Th way I arranged the catch basins is
the most natural one, and that which requites
the least number of them. There must be a
low point in the street between Broadway and
John stieet. I proposed makin.-, it at Olive
otieet, and the north side required the catch
basin near Mr. Bowliu's hoube. If the low
point is made at DeBow street, as the council
and Mr. Bowhn recommended, tliere must be a
new catch I as on the opposite (south) side,
in front of block 2, in Kittson's addition, and
the owner would have the same light to com
plain as Mr. Bowlin. avoid all these
troubles, it may be necessary to have the oppo
bite sid of str ets at different heights."
Mr. Becker, to whom the matter had been re
ferred, submitted a report endorsing that of
the city engineer, whioh was adopted, and the
matter was accordingly returned to the council.
THE DE BOW 8TBEET IMPBOVEMENT,
which had been referred to Mr. Becker, came
up under his report, and a communication
from the city engineer. Both concurred in the
opinion that before any improvement should
be attempted upon that thoroughfare its grade
should be fixed. Th matter was, therefore,
uent to the common council for action thereon.
The resolution of the common council di
recting the payment of the stieet force at the
rate of $1.25 per day was laid over.
The street inspectors' weekly reports were
placed on hie. I the lower district $196.87
had been expended, and $113 in the upper dis
