ST. PAUL, TUESDAY, JULY 16, 1878.
SECBETABY SHURMAN seems to think
the way to lesurne is to talk about it.
THE Philadelphia Press quotes Jeff. Davis
to prove that the people of the South still
adhere to the riht of States to secede. Just
as we expected.
WILL Postmaster General Key, who pro
fesses to be a Democrat, contribute to the
Republican coriuption fund? Would a man
be justified in furnishing powder with which

GRANT clubs have been organized in New
York and Washington. The membership is
composed of those federal officeholders who
went out when Hayes came in, and have no
qualifications for earning a living except by

A NEWSPAPER wants to know why the an
niversary of the battle ol the Boyne is cele
brated on the 12th of July when it was ac
tually fought on the 1st. We presume it is
simply an Irish bull, but the 12th is just as
good as any day in the montk for a Donny
brook fair shindig.
"GATH" telegraphs the important infor
mation from Long Branch that Secretary
Sherman went fishing on Saturday with a
party of nine, and ''caught three blue fish
out of eleven caught by the party." Could
any better proof be offered that he didn't
write that letter?
GRANT'S chosen mouthpiece is Secor
Robeson, under whose administration of the
navy department the country was swindled
out of nearly a hundred millions of dollars,
and against whom criminal charges of mis
feasance in office are now pending in the
District ot Columbia.
GEORGE H. BOKEB, Grant's minister first
to Constantinople and afterwards to St.
Petersburg, is wroth at England, for he says
she has cheated Russia out of her valid con
quest in the war, and Turkey out of her ter
ritory. Probably if Beaconsfield had antici
pated Boker's indignation he would have
AN advance has been made in Cuba since

to all of those on the island who are intel
lectually qualified to exercise it intelligently.
THE Philadelphia Press charges the Dem
ocratic Congress with responsibility for the
Indian war because it did not appropriate
enough money to pay the expenses of the
department, thus compelling the savages to
fight or starve. The appropriations were
large enough for the wants of the Indians,
but not large enough for the Republican
agents, who managed to steal the greater
part of the money before it reached its in
VERA ZASSOULITOH, the Russian Jeanne
d' Arc of the Socialists, seems to be very
numerous female. A correspondent has
just interviewed one of her safely secreted by
her friends in "Warsaw, another of her is
said to be secreted by the police, still another
has been transported to Siberia, and the last
of her thns far has just had a public banquet
at Geneva, Switzerland, after which she was
ordered to quit the country. This faculty of
being in half a dozen different places at the
same time no doubt has its advantages, but
it must be somewhat puzzling to one's
NEARLY every one has seen the pictures,
"Before Marriage" and "After Marriage,"
The scene in the former represents a gen
tleman very attentively assisting a lady over
a stile. "After Marriage" exhibits the same
man walking steadily ahead, while the lady
is finding her way alone over the stile with
much difficulty. When Mr. Washburn open
ed the Minneapolis & St. Louis road with a
grand excursion to Albert Lea it was an ex
clusive affair, no one but Minneapolitans
being present or invited. Now that a small
party of St. Louis business men are coming
over the road, Mr. Washburn sends an in
vitation to the St. Paul Chamber of Com
merce asking them to participate in enter
taining the visitors. Mr. Washburn is now
a candidate for Congress and it is "before
election." The remainder we leave to be
worked out by the imagination.
AMONG those with whom Grant surround
ed himself during his administration, no one
appeared to enjoy his confidence to a greater
degree than Secretary Robeson. Although
the gross mismanagement of the navy de
partment perhaps cast more discredit than
any other thing upon Grant's administration,
he never for a moment wavered in his fideli
ty to his friend. Probably, then, Mr. Robe
son is entitled to speak for Gen. Grant, and
his utterances are worthy of weight. We are
inclined to think that he speaks by the card
when he says that Grant does not desire a re
nomination, and "would not accept unless
there should be peculiar conditions, or the
state of the country should demand that he
again take the helm." But the "peculiar
conditions" under which he would accept
are not very likely to arise. That Grant
does not desire a renomination is true only
to a certain extent. If defeat appears una
voidable, Grant will not run, but if success
is probable, his friends will see that "the
country demands that he again take the
HAYES' SOUTHERN POLICY.
A great deal is said about Hayes' Southern
policy, and wonder is expressed by the few
remaining champions of his administration
that it meets with so little favor at the
South, where it was designed to work a revo
lution ia political sentiment, ultimating in a
solid indorsement of the Republican party
and Republican principles as exemplified by
the tie facto President. Did those partisans
ever stop to inquire what that policy is, and
to ascertain the causes of its failure? Prob
ably not for the popular mind is usually
satisfied with generalities, and does not stop
to inquire into particulars and to trace the
relation between cause and effect.
Mr. Hayes' Southern policy has been a
failure for a variety of causes, principal
among which may be mentioned his entire
misconception of the Southern people, and
hi consequent mistake in the employment
to conciliate them. His first mis
take was in placing them upon the same
moral and political plane with himself. In
the political school in which he was reared
everything was considered honorable which
would tend to success, and public office was
esteemed a balm for every wounda com
pensation for indignity of every description.
He accepted the Presidency knowing that he
had neither legal nor moral right to it, rely
ing upon the power he would exercise in the
way of dispensing patronage to reconcile the
paople to the fraud. By rectifying a few of
the wrongs that had been perpetrated by his
political associates upon the people
of the Southestablishing the
Nicholls government in Louisiana
and the Hampton government in South
Carolinahe thought to so fill the people
with gratitude that they would condone his
fault and rally to his support with all but
unanimity. But although grateful for his
assistance in maintaining their rights the
Southern people did not esteem it their duty
to indorse a fraud simply because justice
had been done them.
This accomplished, Mr. Hayes, with that
sublime confidence in the efficacy of office
as a panacea for every grievance, which has
always characterized him, undertook to still
further "conciliate" the South by bestowing
upon some of the Democrats in that section
some of the favors in his gift. But he was
unfortunate in his choice of men. He found
few representative Southerners who were
willing, by accepting office at his hands, to
give their sanction to an administration of
fraud. Those who did accept the favois
doled out were men of no political influence
mere guerrillas in politics, whose aim in
life was similar to that of their patron
men who were willing to sell their manhood
for the spoils of office. Instead of pleasing
Southern Democrats Hayes' selections dis
pleased them. It placed the mass in a
false position through the condonation of
wrong by a few.
Mr. Hayes' policy has been based upon
the power of bribery. He has been unable
to understand why any one can refuse office
as a compensation for injuries received. It
is the tult of his edrcation that he has been
unable to conceive of a higher manhood,
and perhaps he is not altogether to blame.
For this reason his Southern
policy was bound to be and has been a fail
ure. The people of the South
cannot be reconciled to fraud,
nor do they appreciate the bestowal of
office upon a few of the least worthy in their
section. It looks too much like bribery it is
an attempt to bribe entire States to give their
sanction to successful fraud.
That this policy has been distasteful to the
Republicans of the North is not to be won
dered at. They have been trained to believe
that to the victors belong the spoils, and
they naturally look upon a diversion of a
portion of the spoils to those who voted
against them at the last election
as an assault upon their rights.
They do not believe in bestowing favors upon
those who do not appreciate them, and hence
Mr. Hayes finds little support for his South
ern policy among his partisans at the
Mr. Hayes has demonstrated his total in
capacity to deal with the Southern problem.
He* misunderstands Southern character, and
acts on that misunderstanding in a manner
calculated to alienate rather than reconcile
the people.. He nxast disabuse his mind of
the idea that the South can be bribed into
acquiescence in dishonesty, and must learn
that the only way he can "conciliate" the
people is to give them exact and even justice.
He does not need to offer them salve for
their wounds in the shape of federal offices,
for by doing so he insults their manhood
and impugns their honesty.
THE CORRUPTION WHICH DEFEATED
We give this morning a collation from
Republican authority of charges showing the
corruption resorted to by Washburn and
his friends to rob Dr. Stewart of the con
gressional nomination, to which he (Dr.
S.) was so fairly entitled. No one at all
familiar with political affairs has had any
doubt of the means used to win the Wash
burn victory, and we only make the quota
tions in question to show that these charges
of corruption are not a partisan outcry, but
that they come from within the Republican
Of course, a nomination obtained by such
means is of no binding effect upon a party,
and Dr. Stewart and every other Republican
is absolved from any allegiance to such ac
tion. Not only this, but it is important that
such practices should be rebuked if the Re
publicans would keep their organization
from the lowest depths of degradation. If
they wish to have their nominations made a
matter of barter and sale, if they wish it un
derstood that it is only necessary to go forth
with scrip to win, then they
should ratify Washburn's nomination.
This is the second tintt* a ^j^pbas^l
nomination for Congress has "Been 'sectfW'
in this district, and it is possible the Ae
publicans like this style and propose to in
augurate it as a permanent policy. Dr.
Stewart has an opportunity to render his
party a substantial service and after being
insulted and degraded as he has been, he
would be scarcely human if he did not teach
the corrupt rascals a lesson which they will
Cot. ALLEN did a good service in reviving,
in the Chamber of Commerce yesterday, the
plan for making the Fort Snelling bridge a
combined wagon and railroad bridge. The
bridge commissioners had the project before
them two weeks ago and on referring it to
their engineer, Sewall, he reported that the
cost would much exceed the amount provided,
and without further ado the commissioners
abandoned the idea. It has been the ex
pressed opinion of the GLOBE from the start
that Mr. Sewall ought not to have
been chosen engineer, but whether that
selection was an error or not, he should not
be regarded as a dictator. Col. Allen's sug
gestion that views and proposals be obtained
from prominent bridge builders, is an excel
lent one and should be given practical ef
fect. Thus far whenever Sewall crooks his
finger all of the commissioners crook their
fingers likewise. No practical bridge builder
has been consulted in any particular. This
is too important a matter to allow
to rest on the dictum of any one
man. There are a dozen or more
bridge builders who would be glad to come
here and bid tor the work. We believe Mr.
Sewall's estimate too high, and that 165,-
000 will build a combined wagon and rail
road bridge. If this is so, consultation with
practical bridge men will develop the fact.
If the sum is not sufficient then more should
be provided. No bridge should be built at
Fort Snelling for wagon traffic alone. This
dp has vital interests at stake in making
that bridge a medium for railroad connec

says small pox prevails in the Chelsea region.
On one of the farms a Bohemian died with
it and a woman was sick with it. The

day the grain stored there was hauled up,

for thirty days, and her husband was sent to
jail, charged with keeping a house of ill

an inmate of the house, was released on
promising to leave the city forthwith.
Wtiat the Investigation Develops.
The New York Nation, non-partisan, says the
Potter investigation is not fastening guilt on
any person not before suspected, or developing
any flaw in the President's title, but is letting
the world know what sort of people had charge
of the Louisiana State government, and worm
ed the political machine there, from 1868 to
last year, and adds:
"Their manners and morals, and the stories
they tell of each other, read like a chapter of
jail yard gossip, and that every one of them
ought to be in the penitentiary, is putting the
case mildly. It is not exaggeration to say that
it was an unlawful thing to have left the
government of a civilized community in such
hands so long, and lamentable and alarming
that the scamps should have been able to palm
themselves off so long as good people at the
North and sufferings friends of the black man."

The P. P. last week said navigation was
closed on the St. Cioix, which was altogether
wrong. Navigation has not been closed, the
Knapp has made regular trips every day with a
single exception since navigation opened.
The P. P., with more zeal than prudence,
ventilates an assault case while the prisoner is
still at liberty, and gives the fiend a good chance
to escape. While we are always on the alert tor
fresh news, we don't want to embarrass the
officers of the law in their duties.

by that biute at Oakdaie last week, is doing as
well as could be expected. Dr. Millard, who is

enough to create any alarm. The fiend who
committed the assault is still at large, and it is
a disgrace to the neighborhood that he was al

Chief Shortall captured twenty boys bathing
near the elevator yesterday and brought them,
up before the court. The judge suspended
sentence and allowed them to go free. We
havehad occasion to mention this matter of

that the boys and men too should have some
suitable place assigned them for bathing.
Why not repeal the ordinance as far as Lilly
lake is concerned, and, if need be, detail some
citizen of that neighborhood to act as special
police, to see that the boys are kept on the
other side of the lake and behave themselves.

Under tJie Bed.
Snj'der's boarding house on the corner of
Eighth avenue northeast and Marshall street,
E. D., was the scene of some excitement on
Sunday night. It appears that a market wo
man from this side of Anoka, came with a
load of. "truck" on Sunday afternoon, and
took up her quarters at the above named hos
tehie. On retiring to rest about 10 or 11
o'clock, the good lady (being in a strange place)
took a look under the bed, and there, lying
prone upon the floor, was the burly frame
of a full grown man. What could
the woman do except to exercise the female ac
complishment of voice. She did lust that, and
screamed loud enough to disturb the harmony
produced by the music of the spheres. And
she did not stop with one scream, but followed
it up with several more, until the entire neigh
borhood was up in arms (and night shirts)
ready to come to her relief. The man, who
proved to be "a lewd fellow of the baser Bort,"
(the woman's voice was sopranotogether
they made a fine duette) named
Daniel Hogan rushed out of the room and into
the street, but not until he had been recog
nized. Detective Hoy was sent for, and about
2 o'clock A. M. yesterday carroled the young
man and deposited him in the lockup to await
further orders from the Anoka market wi man.
What the rascal was there for, rape or robbery,
does not as yet appear, but will be discovered
probably when the woman appears to prosecute

Richard McCarthy Makes the Attempt to
Cut His ThroatFails in the AtUmjtt,
Hut (s Adjudged Insane.
Sunday night about 10 o'clock Richard Mc
Carthy, a young man about twenty-four years
of age, who lives with his parents on Fifth
street, near Tenth avenue south, made
a desperate attempt to commit
suicide. It appears that for
some months he had been out of regular em
ployment, and of late has grown very nervous,
morose, and seemingly discouraged. On Satui
day he was about home all day, and, notwith
standing the intense heat, busied himself in
piling wood, and worked himself nearly sick.
On Sunday he acted so stiangely his
mother became uneasy, and kepi
a close watch upon him. About 10 o'clock he
went up stairs to his room, and soon aftei his
mother heard a 6trange noibe. Proceeding to
his room she discovered him seated in a chair
with a razor in his band, and the blood stream
ing from a wound in his throat. She took the
ra/.or from him, staunched the flow
of blood as best she could,
and sent immediately for a phjsician. On his
arrival it was dif covered that the wound was
not deep enoueh to sever the jugular, and
that it need not necessarily prove fatal.
Yesterday an examination was made by two
physicians, on order of the judge of probate,
and the young man adjudged insane. He will
be sent to St. Peter to-day.

MONTBEAL, July 15.Ref. Father Dowd, of
St. Patrick's church, referred to late events
yesterday. The venerable priest said: "On
Sunday last I asked you to offer fervent prayers
to God for peace on the 12th. Our good God
was pleased to hear our supplications, control

fiercest conflict of passions. He gave ns a
peace which could come only from Him. To
day it is our duty to send up fervent acts ot
thanksgiving. We shall continue to prav
earnestly that our Heavenly Father may
confirm and make lasting amongst
us so great and unexpected a mercy. The ic
tory obtained was not stained with blood nor
saddened by any kind of violence. It is not
your victory nor mine. It is not a victory of
the Catholic over the Protestant. It is a vic
