THE GLOBE asserted the other day that
"the Eepublican party has always proved it
self the foe to the laboring man, and oppo
sition to it should be the cardinal principle
of workingmen." To this the Chicago Inter
Ocean excepts, and i sserts that "one-third of
the laboring men of the United States live
in fear from organized bands of Democrats
who apply the lash and shoot down in cold
blood 'laboring men' who dare to differ
from this great honest party which the
GLOBE worships with blind idolatry." If any
such fear fills the mind of "one-third of the
laboring men of the United States" that pro
portion must be incorrigible fools. The so
called "organized bands of Democrats" have
an existence only in the diseased imagina
tion of a few senseless negroes in the South
and a small number of alarmists at the
North who, for a political purpose, deliber
ately torture the facts. The laboring men
of the South to whom reference is made, are
as safe in their political and personal rights
as the editor of the Inter Ocean is in Chica
go, and he knows it.
THE LOUISIANA. BARGAIN.
The evidence of Major Burke, given to
the Potter committee on Tuesday, is of the
utmost importance to the object of the in
quiry. That a bargain between the Demo
crats of Louisiana and Hayes and his sup
porters existed at the time of the count of
the electoral ticket has never been in doubt,
although the details of that bargain have
been involved in more or less mystery. Mr.
W. E. Chandler testified several weeks ago
that he first became aware of the existence
of the bargain in February, before the inau
guration of Mr. Hayes, and was shocked to
learn that although the Eepublican elector?1
had been given a majority, the Eepublican
State government was to be ousted. He
found on inquiry that Hayes had entered
into this bargain as the only means of secur
ing the electoral vote of Louisiana, so neces
sary to his own election. Other witnesses
testified to substantially the same facts, al
though more vaguely than Mr. Chandler.
Col. Roberts' evidence before the commit
tee last week was the most direct of all pre
vious testimony bearing on that point. He
was one of the agents of Gov. Nichollsor
rather of the Democrats of Louisianato
conduct the negotiations. He personally
visited Mr. Hayes and received from him
guarantees sufficiently binding to sat
isfy him that the incoming adminis
tration would act in good
faith towards those he represented,
and assist in placing the legally elected State
government in power. He does not claim
to have received a piomise in terms from
Mr. Hayes, but he regarded the pledge in the
form given to be quite as binding as if ex
In support of the statements of the^e two
witnesses, Major Burke has given the full
details of the negotiations that took place
between representatives of the two parties
at Washington. He was fully authorized by
the Nicholls government to act a3 their
agent, and was treated by the friends of Mr.
Hayes as a duly accredited plenipotentiary.
In this capacity he had conferences with Gen.
Grant, then President, and with Matthews,
Morton, Garfield and others as lepresenta
tives of Mr. Hayes' interests. Gen. Grant
entered into the conspiracy so far as to per
mit the Democrats of Louisiana to take pos
session of the State, but refused to with
draw the menace of armed intervention of
federal troops until the count had been
declared for Hayes. Matthews and the
other representatives of Hayes agreed that
Nicholls should be installed governor with
the support of the now administration pro
vided there should be no attempt to interfere
with the fraud of the returning board then
in progress, by which Hayes would receive
the vote of the State in the electoral college.
Seeing that there was no hope for the Demo
crats except by agreeing to the terms pro
posed, Major Burke at last consented. He
saw that there was a determination, if he
refused, not only to count Hayes but Pack
ard in, and on the theory that half a loaf
was better than no bread he gave
his consent to the fraud. His statements
agree in all substantial particulars with those
made previously by Mr. Chandler and Col.
Roberts, and are furthermore supported by
documents of the most convincing character.
His implication of Grant in the conspiracy,
although afresh development, isfully proved,
and he brings the conspiracy directly home
to Hayes by pro\ing that the agreement was
made by his most intimate confidential
friends that in pursuance of the agreement
the policy of the incoming administration
was outlined in a speech in the House by
Kepresentative Foster that although Mr.
Hayes did not personally give him the
guarantees sought, they came so directly as
to leave no doubt in his mind that he was
privy to the arrangement, fully understood
it in all its phases, and would carry it out to
the letter. As a further fact corroborative
of Mr. Hayes' guilty knowledge it may be
stated that every detail of the agreement was
afterwards religiously carried out by him.
During the pendency of the negotiations
neither Col. Eoberts nor Major Burke ad
mitted that the Hayes electors had received
a majority in Louisiana. They insisted and
demonstrated that they lacked from six to
eight thousand votes of a majority. They
only succumbed to the inevitableto superior
brute force. They were distinctly given to
understand that that was the only com.
promise that would be entertained
that the returning board would
throw out enough Democratic votes
to elect both Hayes and Packard,
and would be sustained in so doing by the
troops stationed at New Orleans, if they failed
to come to tsrms. They were absolutely
powerless to save the State to Tilden, and in
that dilemma made the most they could by
obtaining guarantees of the support of the
legally elected Democratic State officials.
That the bargain was corrupt, admits of no
question. But the Democrats simply acted
from motives of self-protectionjust as a
man attacked by highwaymen will surrender
his purse that he may save his life. The
Republican robbers gave them the alterna
tive of surrendering a part of their rights
peaceably, or submitting to being despoiled of
all they possessed by forcible means. It was
not in human nature to expect that they
would do other than they did. They sur
rendered under protest, and simply permitted
what they could not prevent. This is the
story of the bargain in a nutshell.
SHAKE II UP.
"It is only necessary to shake the Eepub
lican party," says the Chicago Inter Ocean,
"to find out its strength." Precisely. And
it is only necessary to stir up a cesspool to
find out its strength. We have been shak
ing the Republican party and have found
out where some of its strength lies. Take,
for instance, its representatives in the pres
ent Congress and its candidates for the next
House. There's Spencer, for instance, who,
if thoroughly shaken up, will be found to
smell strongly of political prostitution in
every form. Then there's Patterson, who
is afraid to go home to South Carolina for
fear of getting into the penitentiary for his
rascally practices. He is pretty strong, too.
Again, there is an odor of Pacific Mail
bribery about Blaine, whenever he is shaken
up, and mingled odors of Credit Mobilierj
DeGollyer paving contracts, envelope con
tracts and all sorts of corruption when we
put such Republicans as Bill King, Oakes
Ames, Schuyler Colfax, John A. Garfield,
and a score of others in a bag and shake
them up. Orth has an odor of Venezuela
claims about him that is decidedly pungent
Stanley Matthews smells of Louisiana elec
toral frauds Old Subsidy Pomeroy reeks

rupt bargains John Hippie Mitchell's name
is the synonym for political and social cor
ruption Babcock, Hesing, McKee, McDon

en up a little. Robeson's name is over
whelmingly odorous with corrupt naval con
tracts Williams' with transactions in landau
lets Belkap's with bribery while Boss Shep
herd, Delano, and a vast army of others, too
numerous to mention, are strongvery
strong when shaken up. No party that ever
existed in this country will prove itself
half as strong as the Republican party when
shaken up. It is so strong that people gen
erally with delicate olfactories seek to give it
a wide berth. It has a sort of composite
strengtha commingling of odors, each
striving for the supremacy, and each alike
nauseating and foul. There is nothing like
it in nature. We agree with the Inter Ocean
that "it is only necessary to shake the Re
publican party to find out its strength."
T1 IE THIRD DISTRICT.
A Indignant Republican Calls Upon His
Comrades to Defeat Washburn,
To the Editor of the Globe:
I confess to no little disappointment at
the course of events in this Congressional
district. First, I was amazed at the stu
pendous impudence and cheek displayed by
the Minneapolis-Fletcher band of the con
gressional committee, and was in full sym
pathy with the attitude taken by Gov. Mar
shall. I had supposed that that gang of un
scrupulous politicians, would be bravely and
resolutely withstood by the Ramsey county
Republicans, who endorsed and recommend
ed Dr. Stewart for nomination at the con
vention in Minneapolis. Again, I was more
than disappointed, I was indignant to see
the Ramsey county delegation entirely flat
out, and make no sign for Dr. Stewart.
Surprise was merged into unspeakable
astonishment, when a Ramsey county
delegate moved the nomination of Mr.
Washburn by acclamation.
Let me here premise that I am a Republi
can, and have never voted any other than a
Republican ticket in my life. But it has nev
er been my happiness to be an admirer of
the Washburn tribe of office-seekers, and
least of all the titmouse of the flock resident
I am a friend of Dr. Stewart, and earnest
ly desired, ag an act of justice to that worthy
gentleman and faithful representative, his re
nomination, as did other Republicans of the
district. Nor had I a doubt that a majority
of the Republicans of the district desired
his election but by cajoles and deception,
and some assert by the power of money,
they were defrauded of their choice,
I did hope that Dr. Stewart would not
submit to such injusticethat he would put
himself before the people as an independent
candidate. And I have no doubt that that
was his purpose at one time, though I have
never conversed with him on the subject.
But what could he do, when he was deserted
by his St. Paul and Ramsey county Republi
can friends at the Minneapolis convention?
I do not blame Dr. Stewart for retiring from
the field under such circumstances. It were
bootless for him, without the following of
his immediate friends who have endorsed
him as representative and recommended his
renomination, to declare himself an inde

made a capital mistake in their seeming ac
quiescence in the Minneapolis nomination,
achieved as it clearly was by dishonorable
and fraudulent means. But it is not too
late to retrieve their error. They are not
bound to accept a nomination thus procured,
and they ought, in just self-respect, and in
due regard to their local welfare to reject
and repudiate a nomination thus obtained,
and a nominee who is the bitter, norrow
minded foe of our local thrift and prosper

As a Republican citizen of Ramsey coun
ty, I repudiate and discard the nomination
of William B. Washburn, and I call upon
all Republicans in the district who sympa

utterance, to join me in so doing.
There are times whenpersonal self-respect,
when local pride, when undivided rights are
above and beyond all mere party considera

these times, developed here in this Third
Congressional district of Minnesota.
To defeat an obnoxious nominee, and to
gain a greater good, throw partisan consid
erations to the winds. Give us an independ

us even a Democratic candidate, who, aside
from national politics, will represent the
vriliole district honorably, fairly, ably, and not
a mere municipality, and I will unhesitat
ingly give such a candidate my suffrage.
And I call upon all my fel
low Republicans to join with
me and others in rebuking the corrupt prac
tices of sheer office-seekers, and to put a
shoulder to the wheel in a faithful attempt
to defeat the purchased nomination and the
unworthy nominee of the Minneapolis

Mankato Review The St. Paul GLOBE
owes Blue Earth county and Sheriff Schweit
zer an apology for saying that the jail of
this county was so insecure that a prisoner
had lately escaped from the sheriffs custody.
The statement is probably true of Faribault
county, of which Blue Eart City is the
county seat, and want of familiarity with the
geography of Southern Minnesota, on the
part of St. Paul newspapers, has probably
led the GLOBE into the error.

they each fired and killed the dog. This

A N ATROCIOUS CRIME.
One of the Most Diabolical Deeds in the
Annals of Crime,
[Paris Dispatch to London Times.]
The details of a crime of extraordinary
atrocity was revealed to the public to-day at
the court of assizes of the Seme, where the
trial of the three accused persons began this
forenoon. On the 24th of March last a
woman named Gillet, who gained her live
lihood by selling milk in the morning and
working as a charwoman during the day,
suddenly disappeared. Her friends informed
the police of the occurrence, and the dwel
ling of the missing woman was searched.
Some 20 in rentes and gold were found
concealed, but, according to the friends of
Madame Gillet, she possessed a capital of
about 520, of which no trace was obtained.
About the same time another mystery was
brought before the police. On the same
day as the woman Gillet disappeared two
young men hired a furnished room in the
Rue Poliveau, one of them signing himself
"Emile Gerard, aged 26 years, student," and
paying a week's rent in advance. One of
them came back early next morning
with a parcel, and went away again, taking
with him the key of a cupboard in the room
in which he had diposited the parcel. As
neither of the young men returned again,
after the time for which they had hired the
room had expired the proprietress of the
house opened the cupboard and discovered
that the parcel contained the arms and legs
of a human body wrapped up in old shirts
bearing the initials "L. M." The limbs
were those of a woman, and bore traces of a
struggle, which must have shortly preceded
death while the cutting had evidently been
performed by some one who knew a little of
anatomy. This was the story which was
laid before the public three months ago.
The police became at once convinced that
the limbs were those of the missing woman,
Gillet, and that the purpose of the murderers
was to rob her of her money, of which no
trace had till then been found on the prem
ises. Her memoranda of purchases were,
however, afterwards discovered, and some
of the numbers of the secuiities fche
had bought were traced to mon
ey-changers, who had received them from an
agent de change named Barre, who, it was
ascertained, had jubt before been recom
mended to her as a good medium for her in
vestments. Barre was apprehended and his
apartments searched. In them were found
shirts bearing The initials "L. M." and iden
tical with those in which the limbs found in
the Rue Poliveau were wrapped up. Barre,
confronted with these other proofs, confess
ed that he had murdered the woman Gillet,
and mentioned the name of an accomplice.
Lebiez, a student of medicine, who was at
once likewise apprehended, as well as the
mistress of Barre, Leontme Morris or Lepin,
whose initials were those on the shirts
question. From their confessions and
further evidence, it appears that Barre and
Lebiez received a good education at the
Gollege of Angers, and are the sons
of very respectable residents in that
town. They were both of exceedingly
loose habits and continually in pecuniary
difficulties. Barre came to Paris to prepare
himself for admission as a notary, but from
gambling occasionally on the Bourse he
came to devote himself entirely to it, and set
up eventually a money agency. Lebiez, a
medical student in Paris, of equally disso
lute habits, was his bosom associate. The
woman Gillet having employed Barre as her
exchange agent, the latter learnt that she
was in possession of some wealth, and he
and Lebiez determined to help themselves
out of their immediate difficulties by mur
dering her and stealing her property. Their
project was carried out on the 23d of March.
Barre, passing the victim at her stand, asked
her to bring some milk at once to his apart
ment. A box had been purchased for her
body, and when she arrived in his room
Barre struck her on the head with a ham
mer, while Lebiez stabbed her. Lebiez then
cut up the body, as it would not all go into
the box, and disposed of the rest in the way
already described. The box was taken to
the station of the Orleans railway as luggage,
Barre taking a ticket for Mans, which he
did not use. Immediately after the murder,
Barre went to Madam Gillet's apartment
with the key he found in her pocket and ob
tained possession of the greater pait of her
securities. This is the story as told by the
acte (Vaccusation. The woman Lepm is

THE CHAMPION ELOPER.
The Man Who Eloped Twite fUtli
Woman and the Third Time With
i Oswego Palladium.J
About five years ago Charles Draper, a
resident of the town of New Haven, but
who had been the employ of Mr.
Benjamin Doolittle of this city, deserted his
wife and children and ran away with a
woman from Texas, in this county. The
pair returned to New Heaven subsequently
and Draper went back to his family, only to
repeat the operation a short time after.
Again the gallant Draper returned to the
bosom of his family, and finding that his
conduct was not considered up to the stand
ard of New Heaven morality, packed up, and
taking his wife and children, went down
east, somewhere near Boston. Here he
eloped with a sum of money belonging to his
employer, and was sent to the penitentiary.
Becoming disgusted with the high-toned
notions of Massachusetts people, Draper
came back to New Heaven with his family
and went to work for his brother David, a,
leading Methodist and the possessor of a
good-looking wife and four bright children.
In the effort to reform his wayward brother
David took him into his family and at the
famil, altar Charles and David communed.
Last week the brother came to Oswego to
dispose of some produce, and while absent
Mrs. Dave took her children to a neighbor's
and asked to leave them there until she
could go to the village and have a tooth ex
tracted. After the "sass" had been disposed
of here, David lost sight of Charles and re
turned home without him. What was his
surprise on arriving to find his house de
serted, his chiidren at the neighbor's and
his wife gone. The situation was only too
plainhis unfaithful spouse and ungrateful
brother had eloped. Mrs. Charles has prob
ably got used to this little eccentricity of
her husband's and don't mind it so much,
but to David it is a serious matter. The
runaway pair have not been heard from since
their departure. When Charles returns, as
he undoubtedly will, the citizens of New
Heaven should receive him as becomes a
a champion eloper, and a man who may at
some future time distinguish himself by
getting away with his own or somebody

Continuation of the Evidence of Mfgo
Burke Before the Potter Committee
Important Evidence Bearing Upon the
Theft of the Presidency by Hayes and
NEW YORK, Ang. 21The Potter commission
resumed its labors this morning, and Maj. E.
A. Burke again took the stand. By mutual
agreement, said the witness, friends of Hayes
were to visit Gen. Grant with a view of ascer
taining what his views were on the question of
the establishment of the Nicholls government,
but there was nothing said, as far as I am
aware, about any commission. I was assured
by Hayes and others that all troops would be
withdrawn. Witness read from some papers
that he had in bis possession a statement that
there was a letter from Hayes to Foster under
date of Feb. 23d, containing the basis of guar
antee and assurances. Verbal guarantees were
given by Sherman, Matthews, Dennison and
Garneld in a Senate committee room and at
Wormley's hotel. This letter explained all
guarantees and assurances we had. I never
stated I received any letter of guarantee or as
surances from Sherman or others of
the conference. To his knowledge
there was no note or memoranda writing
He met Foster subsequently at his room, but
there was nothing of any conversation commit
ted to writing.
QuestionWas there not an understanding
between yourself, Garfield, Sherman, Foster
and Matthews that you and other gentlemen on
the other side should reduce any proposition
made to writing?
Witness replied that he was confident the
subject under discussion at the time was not
reduced to writing. We had the word of the
President of the United States.
Here quite a passage took place between
Major Burke and Gen. Butler as to the papers
which he had and still has, but the answer was
that all the papers were referred to in his let
ter. Gen. Butler then persisted in knowing
why witness left out the filibustering paragraph
in his synopsis of the Wormley hotel confer
and Burke replied My reaso for
its omissioMajor was probably from prudentialn mo
tives, and that one of the members from Louis
iana should state our reason on the floor of the
House. It was our desire that the substance
of what we expected should be before the
country, and understood by the country at the
time, in order to guard against any violation
of the issuance given, and in order that if they
were violated and effects followed, Louisiana's
action would be justified by the country.
Mayor Burke read his dispatch of Feb. 28th
to Gov. Nicholls, which be said clearly explains
their position. This tended to show the leaders
had agreed the filibustering idea was no longer
tenable, and that the count would go on irre
spective of any previous agreement. In fact,
that demoralization had set in, and for the
safety of all concerned, it must be abandoned.
Q. What or who was the high authority that
satisfied you that unless jou were very much
deceived your plans would be successful?
A. Stanley Matthews was one. J. L. Wilrnar,
Bishop of Louisinana, went to Washington to
describe the situation to Haj eh and Grant, and
explain that the attempt to install Packard
would result in anarchy and bloodshed.
Q. What is the meaning of Wilmar saj ing,
"Please don't be disturbed in Louisiana?"
A. I understand by that Hayes would not
attempt to place the Packard government over
Louisiana. The guarantee and assurance to be
given by Hayes were agreed upon by the Nich
oll's government Feb. 26 and 27, and after
wards endorsed by Sherman and Matthews on
the part of Hayes.
Witness denied he ever told anyone Mr.
Hayes in person had authorised the guarantees

LABOR AND CAPITAL.
Hewitt's Committee Again in Session
Two Witnesses Heard, But Nothing Prac
N EW YORK, Aug. 21.The Congressional
labor committee resumed its session to-day.
The first witness was B. Goodwin Moudy, of
Boston. said he could not discover that
there was any conflict in a theory between
capital and labor, but found there was an ar
tificial conflict between them, growing out of
misconception of the relations between them
by both parties. The direct cause, he thought,
was that the laboring classes could not under
stand why capitalists could be in affluence and
they in poverty. He had no sjmpathy with
the hostility against capital on the part of la.
