JOHN SHERMAN, according to report, has
"got his mad up," and proposes to turn
upon hia tormentors of the Potter com

yet devise some way to get you out of the
scrape without the necessity of going to

Gov. GEB B, of Iowa, after consulting the
legal luminaries of his State as to the legal
ity of holding an election for Congressmen
in October and getting no satisfaction, sent
for a copy of the GLOBE in which the law on
the subject was expounded, and now an

THE Iowa Greenback meeting which de
manded "that mortgages shall be untaxed,
BO that no one need pay taxes on property he
does not own," evidently got the wrong pig
by the ear. The taxation of mortgages is a
tax on capital. What they meant to demand,
evidently, was that the face of mortgages on
property should be deducted from the taxable
value of the property. Do you accept the
THE residents of Bismarck are a sensible
people. Disappointed in receiving a visit
from Mr. Hayes and his party, although all
preparations for the reception had been
made ready, they didn't sit down and mope
over the matter, but turned the affair into a
grand ball, to which an admission fee was
charged, and the whole proceeds devoted to
the yellow fever relief fund. Bismarck
deserves three times three and the loudest
kind of a tiger.
THE last of the Fenian prisoners in Eng
land have been pardoned, at the earnest
solicitation of the American government,
but the Irish papers withhold all praise
from the British government for liberating
them. Although the treatment of these
misguided men has been extremely rigorous,
it cannot be denied that severity was neces
sary. They committed a serious crime in
the name of patriotism, a crime that is ordi
narily punished with death but owing to its
political character in this instance more
lenienoy was shown the prisoners.
Miss HOSE EXTINGE, one of the brightest
lights on the stage, recently offered her
services for a benefit to the yellow fever
sufferers, but the fund committee of Phila

account of her being an actress. Miss
Eytinge publishes a card in which she
In my long experience as an actress this is
the first instance that I have ever met with
where a committee formed to do a work of
charity turned its attention from its legiti
mate work to insult an honorable profession.
Miss Eytinge's grievance is a just one.
No profession in existence has done more
noble deeds of charity than the profession
theatrical. We would far rather have their
record than that of the narrow-minded bigots
vho, in an hour like this, would refuse

A "DEMOOBATIO conspiracy" has been dis
covered. It is briefly explained thus:
They expect to hold the House after the fall
elections. They are eertain of the next Senate.
If they hold their own in the fall elections, the
present House is to refuse to act in any im
portant matter with the Republican Senate,
and, by refusing to pass appropriation bills,
compel the President to call CongresB in extra
session shortly after the adjournment. Then,
having control of both houses of Congress, the
Democratic party can, of coarse, shape all
legislation and fix the appropriation bills ana
other measures to suit itself.
The Democratic party can father this
"conspiracy" without blushing. It is simply
a conspiracy to stop the reckless expenditure
and appropriation of money by the Repub
licans. They will "fix the appropriation
bills to suit themselves" by cutting off all
needless expenditures. They would be false
to their professions if they did not carry out
some such "conspiracy" as this.
CLEANNESS OF CONVERSATION.
Ye are not all clean.JOHN xm-.ll.
The Savior, looking at his disciples, the
chosen twelve, discovered the purpose of one
of them to betray him, and declared "Ye are
not all clean." Men who look over the fol
lowers of Christ to-day can with truth use
the same exclamation. They are not all
cleanvery many of them are unclean in
their daily walk and conversation, delighting
in coarse jest, ir. incidents whose recital
ought to cause a blush upon the cheek of
even the most hardened of mankind. If
"out of the abundance of the heart the mouth
speaketh," very many of the professed
Christians of to-day must be whited sepul
chres indeed, full of all uncleanness. And
ministers of the gospel, we regret to say
sometimes set the example to the members
of their churches of indulging in that most
reprehensible of all practicesthe obscene
jest or double entendre. In gatherings of
ministers we have sometimes observed this
tendency. These disgrace their calling, and
the moment they are relieved of the society
of ladies the jests begin, and from being
slightly suggestive soon grow vulgar, and
from the vulgar to the positively obscene
and indecent is but a step. Every one who
has traveled with a minister of this stamp or
met him at a social gathering where ladies
did not happen to be present, must have no
ticed with what keen relish he listened to the
relation of a questionable story, and wit
what zest he took a part in the
jesting. Instead of rebuking the salacious
story or the impure suggestion he laughed
as heartily as any, and ransacked his memory
for incidents of a like sort that he may keep
up his end of the conversation. By his con
duct he encourages a continuance of the
rude and pernicious practice, and especially
to the young his example is productive of
the most debasing results.
Then, too, the minister is a privileged
character in the family circle, and instances
are on record in which he makes use of
language in the presence of ladies which,
from any other source, would subject the
speaker to a prompt ejectment from the
house at the toe of the boot of husband,
father or brother.
While the clergy are at fault to some ex
tent in setting a bad example to the outer
world, other church members are quite as
worthy of condemnation in that matter.
Instead of setting their faces against in
dulgence in lewd conversation, they are as
ready as any to enter upon it. It is perfectly
natural th the young, hearing their elders,
who in addition are professing Christians,
engaged in such impure talk, should imitate
them, losing sight of the fact that the prac
tice is both unchristian, impolite and debas
ing to men of pure minds. They soon learn
to roll off an offensive story with the utmost
sang froid, and the detestable practice in
creases from day to day and from year to year.
It is a fact that we cannot shut our eyes upon,
that this subtle social poison has permeated
every circle of society so that few are uncon
tammated. It is an evil that is still grow
ing. To it may be traced much of the social
immorality that exists to-day. Familiarize
the mind with stories of the brothel, and
the temptation to sin in that respect meets
the victim half ready to succumb. For too
much of it the clergy and the professing
Christians are responsible. They forget
that cleanness of heart is enjoined upon all
true men and women that it is as essential
as godlinessis, indeed, a part of it. There
must be a reform in this direction, and the
clergy must be the ones to institute it. They
must not only cease their suggestive hints
and sensual stories, but they must rebuke
indulgence in the detestable practice in
others. Be clean in heart and in conversa
tion, and by your example you will be able
to correct the infamously filthy tendency of
much of the conversation in all sorts of
A WORD TO MR. HATES.
The occupant of the Presidential chair,
when he goes to church in St.' Paul this
morning, should take his bible and open it
at the twentieth chapter of Exodus and th
fifteenth verse. There he will find that one
of the laws given to Moses by the Lord on
Sinai reads, "Thou shalt not steal." This
command was intended to be general in its
application. It did not mean that a man in
want should not steal, while a man with
abundance of riches might plunder his fel
lows it did not mean that one man should
not steal a coat to protect him from the win
try blasts while another man might steal the
Presidency of a nation.,Mr. Hayes is a pious
manor at least he professes pietyand it
is not unfair to expect that he will obey the
precepts and commands of the master he
professes to serve. How, then, can he ex
cuse his occupancy of the White House in
view of the fact that he was not elected to
fill it. He knows that the only title he pos
sesses to the office was derived through the
bribery of the supervisors of election and
members of the returning board of Florida
and Louisiana. He knows that he paid the
price of the perjury of these men, about sixty
in number, by appointing them to offices in
his gift. He cannot plead that he did not
know the character of the service they ren
dered, for men of unexceptional character
were ignored that they might be rewarded.
Few if any of the men he appointed bore
good characters. It was notorious from one
end of the country to the other that taey
were chosen as supervisors of election and
members of the returning board because of
their capacity for perjury and bribery. The
man who occupied the second place upon
Mr. Hayes' tioket had, in a report to Con
gress nearly two years before the election,
declared the returning board of Louisiana
ah infamous combination of corrupt men
organized to deprive the people of the right
td the fruits of their votes. Mr. Hayes
could not, therefore, without presuming him
tq be a fool, be ignorant of the manner in
which it was made to appear that he was
elected. How, then, can he reconcile his
conduct in accepting the office of President
of the United Statesin stealing itwith
the divine law? Did he never in MB younger
days read in Watts' hymns that
"It is a sin to steal a pin
Much more to steal a greater thing?"
We would not be uncharitable towards
Mr. Hayes. may have beenwe think
he has beensurrounded with unwise and
eorrupt counsellors who have com
pelled him, by various specious argu
ments, to do violence to his own con
science. But it is never too late to mend,
and if, as he sits in his pew in the house of
God to-day, he resolves to do rightto un
do as far as possible the great wrong he
has committed, by resigning the office he
fraudulently holdshis oblations will be
far more acceptable at the throne of grace,
and he will stand out before the whole world
and live forever in history as the greatest of
NI NE out of every ten Republicans you
meet will admit that there are a sufficient
number of voters opposed to Washburn to
defeat him if their votes are all given to the
same person. The vote of this opposition
will be unitedly given to Mr. Donnelly.

excellently gotten up, shows ability and if the

SIXTH AND r,AST DAY.
It rained all night, and started in early in
the morning, as though it intended to stay all
day, but a little before seven o'clock the mois
ture csased to descend and the clouds began to
lift. This was encouraging, and the crowd of
the day before mostly concluded to remain
and see Mrs. Hayes and Rutherford.
HOPEFUL AND DAN MACE.
It was quiet on the ground during the
most of the forenoon, the weath
er remaining lowering and threaten
ing. About noon, however, at the hour when
the President and party were expected to ap
pear on the exposition grounds, the clouds
broke away and mother nature put on her best
bib and tucker in which to welcome the chief
magistrate of the nation. THE CEOWD.
It was not as numerous as on Wednesday
or Friday, but was still large, tak
ing into consideration that it was
the last day of the fair. Enthusiastic Pioneer
reporters insisted on 25,000, but what'a the ube
LYING AFTER THE FAIB?
A liberal estimate would be 10,000 at any one
time during the day.
Of course the chief attraction was the Presi
dential party, and everybody was asking every
body else, "When will the President be here?"
Bhowing that the multitude had failed to take,
the time necessary to read the GLOBE which
each one carried in their hands or pockets. In
the GLOBE (with customary enterprise) was
for the President's party during the day, and
any one, not too particular, could select one
which would serve his or her purpose. At 12:30
o'clock the word was passed alo-sg the line that
the President was coming, and everybody be
gan t' try to look as nice as possible, just as
though his excellency had come especially to
bee themas indetd he had.

drew in at the gate, and was immediately
escorted down to the lower end of the grounds
to witness the magnificent display of blooned
stock, all (the stock not the President) decorat
ed in their newly acquired anrl bravely earned
blue and red ribbons. The President was all
condescention, smiles and good nature, while

when he was required or when it was proper he
should address an audience largely of ladies, spoke
of his embarrassment in undertaking to do it, as he
had never been skilled in the language compliment
ary to ladies, and I feel somewhat as he must have
felt in attempting to make my acknowledgment to
thOBe to whom I am indebted for the gratification of
being with you to-day. I am not skilled, I have not
studied the language of mere acknowledgment and of
thanks upon occasions like this. It occurred to me,
coming as I was to the Northwest to attend agricul
tural and mechanical fairs, to meet people who were
mainly engaged in considering their material inter
ests, that I might perhaps say a word or two that
would be interesting on that subject, the prospects
of business, the return to better times, and accord
ingly I gathered together a few facts and a few fig
ures which I intended to use and repeat, at each of
the places in which I was called upon to address an
assembly, leaving to the moment to say such other
things as might seem proper to say when called upon
on occasions like this. And here let
me say this, that sincerely and heartily
I thank the Governor of Minnesota and the
mayor of the city of Minneapolis and the president
and officers of this association for the very friendly
way in which they have greeted me, and I thank this
whole audience for the heartiness with which they
have receded sentiments, some of which, djubtless,
they do not' altogether agree with. It is one of the
fortunate things an an American public life that
whatever may be said currently in the angry discus
sion of political strife that after all the American peo
ple of all parties seem to have a sagacity discover
ing at laat.what manner of man it is tbat they are
talking about ana thinking about, and though he
may make eveiV So many mistakes, if, upon the
whole, they believe that he is honest and patriotic,
and means well, they will treat him as you treat me.
Of course we all know everybody in the United
States tbat knows anything knows a good deal, and a
good deal that is good and pleasant about the city of
Minneapolis. [Applause.] We know of your energy,
of your rapid growth, of your prospects, of what you
are doing. To-day, passing around your city, view
ing your beantiful homes, viewing also its wonderful
manufacturing establishmentsestablishments so
extensive, so well fitted to take hold of the raw ma
terial which we have seen growing in the
colossal wheat fields of the Northwestpassing
through these I saw and realized how it is that one
column of the figures that I have repeated-aud I
propose to repeat until I get back to Washington
how it is that that column of figures stands bo favor
ably to the United States as it does. [Applause.] I
refer, as you will naturally conjecture, to the com
parison between what we send abroad and what we
receive from abroad, and tbat column of figures tells
us that thebe last four years, and especially in this
last year, we have sent to Europe of agricultural pro
ducts, ot breadstuffs, of provisions, largely more
than ever befoie, and the opposite fact is equally en
couraging, and that is, that my wife and your wife,
and your boys hare been seized with a fit of economy
and are buying less of the nonsense they make
abroad than ever before, (loutl applause) and so the
result IB that to this period of hard times, when we
need encouragement, we are having a state of trade
more favorable than ever known.

spoke the man who holds the office of Chief
Magistrate of this nation, not by the will of
the people, but by the strong hand of law. Of
course he was cheered frequently during his
remarks, but there was a notable and ominous
silence at those points where he came to the de

and the hard mne theories of his adminis
The ideas were not born of thought, nor were
they elaborated in the brain of a great
man but were only the surface
platitudes of a gentleman who is 60 far raised
by wealth and position above the wants and
hopes of his fellow citizens that he cannot
comprehend their struggles and their suffer
ings. After the President's address to the men
of wealth who were before him there was need

"Old Probabilities," whose other name is Gen.
Myers, head of the weather bureau, was called
for and responded in a brief speech. He said
he had been promised by his assistants in
Washington a "fair day," and was happy the
boys' words had been verified, though it look
ed somewhat uncertain in the morning. (Laugh-
ter.) He had come from the far East to what
he had been taught to consider the far West,
and had come to see the magnificent farming
lands of thb wonderful country, and he had
also come to see that class of men which bis

aid and benefit in their labor of

gratified, and hoped to live to see his work ap

this great land.

the President's financial policy, (of course) and
everything else his pxcellency kad uttered, (of

one or two pleasant stories, stuck on a Latin
quotation from Seneca, and rendeied it

agriculturist, (forgetting to mention, with

AT THIS STAGE
Brown, who is running so successfully the re
lief tent for the yellow fever sufferers, came
into the stand with a handsome Morocco-cov
ered bible, handing it to the President with
whiRpered instructions. The President imme
diately rose, and holding the book aloft,
stated that a former soldier of the federal
army desired to do something for the
confederates whom he had fought during the
war, and who weie now stricken by the scourge.
He had no money, but had donated the Bible,
and desired that some one would purchase it,
that the proceeds might go to the

in the grand stand, and again taking carriages

THE PRESIDENTIAL RECEPTION LAST EVENING.
The parlors of the Nicollet were ablaze with
brilliancy and beauty last evening when the
President and party held a reception. No
public announcement had been made, so short
was the time, and of course the affair was* in

and their ladies. Government police were sta

and the visitors, as they passed through the
room ushered by Mayor Rand, paused before
the party long enough to be introduced, shake
handB, say something pretty, and then passed
out or into the parlors. Many elegantly dressed
ladies were Been among the crowd, and the gay
uniform of officers of the army and navy glis

Shortly after 9 o'clock the party "left the po
sition of state, and mingling among the peo
ple, passed a few moments in pleasant conver
sation, and about 9:30 left the Nicollet and were
driven to the depot, from whence a special
train conveyed them to St. Paul to remain over
Sunday and so ended the eventful visit of the
President of the United States, a visit sprung
upon us in a moment, giving us no time in
which to prepare a fitting reception and
demonstrate to the world that respect which is
due to the executive of the nation irrespective
