TBEBE is no fault to be found with Bill
King for assuming control of the paper of
which he is the largest stockholder. It is a
wonder he has not done so before. The only
fault is that he don't move his printing press
to Minneapolis. We don't know why the
mechanical work of a Minneapolis newspa
per should be done in St. Paul.
SECUKTABY MCCBABY, who has just re-
turned to Washington from Ioara, admits the
existence of a strong Greenback element in
that State, and confesses his inability to tell
how much mischief to the ^Republican party
it will be able to accomplish. The Republi-
can hard money chiefs are learning one by
one that the woods are full of Greenbackers.
A we supposed would be the case, the
gigantic preparations of the Washington
authorities to welcome Cohen and his men

ble graves" have proved of no use The
emeute did not materialize. On ly about a
hundred ignorant blacks rallied around the
leader, who promised to release labor from
its present thralldom, and beyond trying
without success to induce others to join their
force they did nothing.
THK Minneapolis Tribune rebukes the
GLOBE for its quotation of Josef's gentle
allusion to "the pimp and parasite of a per
jured Bcoundrel." W are sorry David did not
express his opinion earlier. The GLOBE
would not as a matter of course, wou nd Da

would only let us know how the GLOBE

probably edit it some other way.
KEY, now that he has reached California,

assured the people of Sacramento on
Friday that the subject had already received
the attention of the cabinet, and that the
President was only awaiting the arrival of
the Chinese embassy to demand a modifica
tion of the Burlingarae treaty. A last ac-
counts from Washington, however, the Chi-
nese embassy was awaiting the arrival of the
President. S the boot is on the other foot.
THE liepubhcan papers are assuming great
indignation because several ministers of the
gospel have entered the political arena as
Democratic candidates for Congress, and
claim that they are bringing the cause of
religion into disrepute by dabbling in pol
itics. But they had no word of reproof
for the clergy when, carried away by blind
passion, they denounced honest and pa
triotic citizens as traitors and copperheads.

THE Inter Ocean quotes from a cotem.
porary the fact that convalesence from the
yellow fever is attended by increased vitality,
and a condition of general health very much
better than before the attack, and felicitates
the victin son account of this compensation
for the terrible disease. We would advise
the I. 0., for the benefit of its readers, to
get the ellow fever by all means. And if
the resultant increase of vitality is propor
tionate to the virulence of the attack, we
trust it will have a very bad case.
THE cable communicates the startling in
telligence that '"Hadji-Hadji has arrived at
Zwarrick." We must confess that this news
takes a great load off our mind. It is horri
ble to comtemplate what might have occurred
if Hadji-Hadji had not arrived at Zwarrick.
Perhaps the nations, that had begun to learn
the arts of peace, would have once more
buckled on the habiliments of war, and
brothers' hands would have been imbued in
fraternal blood perhaps, indeed, the very
firmament would have fallen in upon us and
brought unutterable woe. But who the
deuce is Hadji-Hadji, and where is Zwarrick?
THE restoration to power in Canada of the
conservative parly, under the leadership of
Sir John A. Macdonald will again bring to
the fore the rather disreputable transactions
that compromised his administration several
years ago in connection with the Canadian
Pacific railroad. Macdonald himself was
not entirely clear of blame in the matter, and
the circumstances may yet be used by his
enemies as a means to hamper his adminis
tration. Having been beaten for parliament
in his own district, Sir John was chosen to
represent one of the Manitoba districts, and
is therefore ready to assume his old position
as premier of the dominion.
A SHODDY JOB.
The GLOBE of Friday called attention to
the positively unsafe condition of the new
win to the capitol and its inadequacy to sus
tain a crowd. Of course the St. Paul even
ing paper and the Minneapolis morning
paper rusbed to tne defense of the "job."
They always did defend steals in all quarters.
Scarcely had the words been uttered when
proof positive of the wretched nature
of the work was made apparent
by the falling of the vault, as elsewhere
noted. The whole job corresponds to this
arch. It is a positive disgrace to have such
a worthless and half-erected structure
palmed off upon the State. It is shoddy
from roof to basemeut. The lumber is
ipoorand mean. The mortar was simply
mud, there being not more than one barrel
of lime where there should have been ten.
But the most serious matter is
the lack of supports in the
basement. We understand that the
Governor intended to put in at least two
more pillars and since the accident of yester
day he will have tho whole building exam
ined 1 competent architects. Whoever is
at fault in this matter should be exposed
Without fear, favor.
ZIVJS AND LET LIVE.
For unto every one that hath shall be given,
and he shall have abundance but from him
that hath not, shall be taken away even that
which he hath.MATTHEW XXV:29.
The words of the hard master to the ser-
vant who had kept his talent buried in the
earth is accepted to-day to a large extent as
the teachings of the Savior, and acted on to
the fullest extent not only by those who do
not but by those who do profess to follow
the precepts of the master. They forget
that Jesus spoke a parable, the purpose of
which was to inculcate providence and indus-
try that the penalty of not improving one's
talents was stated in the language quoted
as a probable consequence of neglect,
not as a precept to be followed. But the dis-
position is innate in humanity to give to
those that have abundance, and to take from
those who have little, and it is convenient to
find justification for conduct so reprehensi-
ble by referring to the words of the parable.
W see this disposition in every walk of life.
I government it is especially noticeable at
the present time. The tendency of all legis
lation during the past fifteen years na been
to add to the accumulations of the rich and
to increase the burdens of the poorto
make the rich richer and the poor poorer.
Happily we are on the eve of a new dispen
sation under which the poor and the unfor-
tunate, who are so through no fault or crime
of theirs, can have some chance in the battle
of lifewill have the opportunity to win a
competence undeterred by the fear of their
hard masters who reap where they sow not
and gather where they have not strewn.
Such a day is even now dawning upon this
I commercial life we see the tendency of
human nature furtker exemplified. The
rich merchant monopolizes all of the busi-
ness of a town to the ruin of him who is
poor yet struggling for a livelihood. Men
and women patronize those who are already
deluged with businese, and pass by the mod-
est store of the poor tradesman who would
rejoice to serve them and to whom their pat-
ronage, no matter how small or how great,
would do infinite good. S he is ultimately
forced to the walldeprived of what little he
hadwhile his wealthier competitor in
creases his establishment and extends his
line of trade. I has become uext to impos
sible of late years for a man
with limited means to establish
himHelf in business in one of the
large cities of the country because of the
tendency of people in all stations of life to
flock to the large, fashionable and wealthy
establishments that surround him. may
keep the best of goods and sell them as low
as any one else, yet no one thinks of extend-
ing him a helping hand. The struggle ends
in his being "frozen out," two words full of
meaning to those who have passed through
such an experience.
The church and the clergy, too are given
to following the example of the task mas
ter. the church or the theological school
that has an abundance the largest donations
and bequests are made, so that while some
have overflowing coffers and pay princely
salaries, others are deeply in debt, and have
to struggle bard for existence. When a church
becomes fashionable it attracts all he wealth
of the community, whether it be conducted
on true Christian principles or not. I em-
ploys a fashionable choir and a fashionable
minister, overlooking entirely the poor
struggling talent that probably lies at their
doors. It absorbs from its poorer neigh
bors decimates their membership im
poverishes them. They do not live and let
live. They proceed upon the theory that
"from him that hath not, shall be taken
away even that which he hath." And so
with pastoral visits and the various social
attentions of the church. The rich, who
have abundance of society and kind atten
tions, receive all the care of their pastor,
while the poor, who are by circumstances
cut off from the enjoyment of cultivated and
refined society, are wholly passed by, and
made to feel still more keenly the hardships
of their position
Where human nature plays so important
a part, it is perhaps unjust to charge the
church with responsibility for this state of
affairs. But we have aright to look to the
church for a sincere effort to counteract a
tendency that is so unjust and productive of
so large and increasing a load of misery.
We have aright to ask of the followers of
Christ that they imitate the example set by
himextend a helping hand to those who
are poor or in distress, and not, by their neg
lect make their already heavy burdens less
endurable. The rich churches should help
their poorer neighbors the pastors should
let those who have an abundance of society
alone in its enjoyment while they endeavor
to introduce a ray of lightperhaps a new
social lifeinto the households of the lowly.
Do not follow the example of the hard mas
ter, but rather the example of him whose
every care was for the poor and needy and
those in distress.
COMING TO THE FRONT.
We are glad to observe that the advice of
the SUNDAY GLOBE to the churches relative
to their duty as to the suffering in the South
has been taken in the proper spirit. Last
Sunday collections were taken up in most of
the churches in aid of the sufferers by yel
low fever, and other means of raising funds
were inaugurated which give promise that
material aid will be rendered from this di
rection. Some of the churches will also
take up collections to-day for the purpose,
and we trust that they will amount to a suf
ficient sum to enable us to point with pride
to the figures.
Munificent as have been the donations of
the people of the North to their sorely
stricken brethren, there is no danger that
they will be too great. It must be remem
bered that the people in ail the infected dis
tricts are absolutely helpless. They are de
barred from all commerce with the surround
ing country, and all industry at home is at
an absolute stand-still. Every man, woman
and child, therefore, in the infected towns is
more or less dependent upon charity for sup
port. Thus far there have been about six
thousand deaths from epidemic, while those
who have been or still are sick number about
twenty-five thousand. All oi them must
have nurses, medical attendance and medi
cines. The OwSt of attendance upon each
person sick will not average less than a
hundred dollars, while the cost of burying
the dead has not been less than a hundred
dollars each. It will thus be seen that the
cost of nursing the sick and interring the
dead has amounted thus far to more than
three and a half millions of dollars, independ
ent of maintaining the well who have no
means of subsistance. The North has con
tributed nearly a. million and. a. naif to assist
the cause the remainder has been borne by
the victims themselves. New Orleans, which
is a comparatively wealthy city, has sent
word that she has received all the help she
wants that she can take care of herself in the
future. But none of the other towns are as
fortunate. Memphis, Vicksburg, Grenada,
Port Gibson, Holly Springs, Greenville,
Plaquemine, Hickman, and a score of lesser
towns are all suffering for want of physi
cians, nursep, clothing, food and medi
cines. They must be assisted, and
from present appearances there is no
likelihojd of an over-supply of money. We
at the North can have no conception of how
terrible it is to pass through an epidemic
such as the yellow fever, which strikes down
whole families at oncethe old and the
young alikea pestilence loathsome in its
manifestations and terribly fatal in its effects.
We can never fully appreciate the great
need that exists for tender care for the sick,
for proper food and clothing, and for those
delicacies so essential to the comfort of the
sick and the dying, or
how pressing the need of burial
is for those who have fallen victims to the
the fell destroyer. But we should not fail
of our duty in this emergency. We must
ojme to the front with as much as we can
spare from our own needs, and do unto the
South as we would have her do to us if we
were similarly afflicted. Fill the contribu
tion boxes to the brim. Every penny will
do some good.

Further of the Suicide.
Mrs. Van Pauley, who committed suicide
Thursday evening, first developed symptoms
of insanity in November, 1877. The
cause, although not directly assignable, is at
tributed to the marriage of her daughter,
Rosa, which occurred a short time previous.
At first her insanity was of an aggravated
form, and she required constant watching
during the fall and winter. She escaped
from the house twice, but was secured be
fore proceeding any distance. During the
past four or five months she has been more
quiet ani docile, and the vigilance of the
family was relaxed. On Thursday evening
the family, with t_e exception of Mrs. Pauley
and the oldest boy, Martin, retired early.
Mrs. Pauley appeared more lucid than
usual, and was engaged in reading a book.
Martin retired about 9 o'clock, leaving her
alone. At 11 o'clock she was missed. A
search was instituted, but proved fruitless
until the body was brought to the junction,
which is a short distance from the house, on
the North Wisconsin train Friday morning.
Coroner Pratt .was telegraphed and with a
jury he immediately repaired to tha scene.
Tne jury-proceeded clown the track in the
direction of Hudson. When about three
quarters of a mile from the lake they found
one of her slippers under the trestle work of
a cattle guard. It is supposed that she fell
through here, receiving the bruises
on her limbs and head.
From here they easily tracked
the foot-prints in the sand to the spot where
she was drowned. The body was first dis
covered by a brakeman on the West Wiscon
sin freight tram, and drawn up on shore.
The North Wisconsin train coming along
soon after brought the body to the junction.
Mrs. Pauley was 60 years of age. The
family consists of six children, three boys
and three girls. The oldest girl, Rosa, is
married to J. Geiriet, of Madelia, where she
now resides. The funeral will take place
this afternoon at 2 o'clock. The verdict of
the jury rendered yesterday, was that Mrs.
V. Pauley came to her death from causes to

Successful finding of the Lake City Fair-
Trotting at Kansas CityMiscellaneous
[8pewal Telegram to the Globe.")
LAKE CITY, Minn., Sept. 21.The fair wound
up with a flourish of trumpets and Btarry ban
ners. The day was all one's fancy could paint
it. The attendance was variously estimated
from three to five thousand. If the beginning
was a little dubious the end rounded up like a
hard-fought battle and a victory won. Like
the biids of migration they come at last in
flocks and in pairs, single hie and double, and
rank and file. They came, they saw, and went
away. I was more than their fancy had
painted it. The pumpkins were larger, the
fruit display opened their eyes to the holid
facts, and the long line of farm and garden pro
ducts told the story of the
of the soil of Minnesota. I was simply an ag
ricultural fail. There were none the mer
cantile industries of the city represented. The
ladies contributed liberally of various articles
of needlework, pastry, and other commodities
of a domestic nature.
At 10 o'clock the horses were paraded on the
lawn in the iear of the judges' stand. There
were the following classes: Road and carriage,
all-work, hetvy horses, old horses (one of
which was 20 years of age and had voted for
Grant), mules and donkejs, and jack labbits
were next shown. Then came the matched
teams, old horses in harness, to bulky, or road
wagon, or any other way.

A MERITORIOUS DISPLAY.
In the art department there were placed on
exhibition yesterday, two beautiful oil paint
ings, the work of Miss Flora Putnam, Minne
iska, Wabasha county. One is a landscape rep
resenting scenery in the Yosemite valley,
California, and the other a portrait of Dr.
Putnam, brother of the judge now diseased.
They are both pictures of real merit and reflect
more than ordinary artistic skill. Th land
scape is especially fine, the falling water and
the cloud scene in the background, the bold,
ragged cliffs and the delicate evergreens that
cling like tendrils to their forbidding
sides, and crown their grand
culminations, are true to nature, and
represent in one perfect picture the sublime
and tke beautiful. The portrait is life-like,
clothed in the uniform of an army officer, with
saber resting carelessly across the arras 'and ex
pressive eyes looking down upon the admiring
spectators. The shading and the blending are
delicate, and there is a pleasing harmony and
happy contour that catches the
eye and rivets the attention. I addi
tion Miss Putnam exhibits a collection
of fifty-two cotton crohchet tidies, ingeniously
wrought and beautiful samples of hand made
thread lane, all the work of her own hands.
Josephine Gillberg of Stockholm exhibits an
unique paper air castle that attracted much
attention and was greatly admired. It is cer
tainly an ingenious piece of feminine skill.

INSANE ASYLUM INVESTIGATION.
The Committee Hold a Brief Session and
Adjourn Until Wednesday.
The Asylum Investigating Committee met
yesterday morning at 10 o'clock, at the capi
tol. Immediately upon assembling they
took the whole of Mr. Kerr's books, includ
ing his "scrip book," ar.d adjourned to the
office of the public examiner, and were
closeted with him the whole morning. Their
purpose was to submit to him the amount of
scrip issuedespecially calling his attention
to the entry of $1,394.18, which was charged
to Mr. Dryer. The result of the con
sultation did not transpire, and a few
minutes after it an adjournment was made
till Wednesday next, by which time it is
thought Secretary Smith will have succeed
ed in drawing a balance sheet of all the
moneys which have passed through the
bands of Mr. Kerr, as treasurer both of the
building committee aud the trustees. It is
thought that the committee will conclude
their labors by the end of the week.

WASHINGTON-, Sept. 21.This morning a gang
of Cohen's followers visited the brick yards of

shortly-afterwards by about fifty others. The
police were soon at the scene and dispersed the
crowd arresting the leader, a man named

northern part of the city, but the police pre
vented any disorder. started on a general
tour with a mob of 100 negroes and visited
Hill's bottom, thence proceeding to Fourteenth
street, where pavement is being laid. Cohen

BODY SNATCHING IN CLEVELAND.
CLEVELVND, Sept. 21.The excitement of
body Bnatching was increased to-day by the
discovery in the vat of the Homoeopathic col
lege of the remains of Mr. Hijjbier, of Garrets
ville, Ohio, an old and esteemed resident of
that place who died Aug. 23. The college offi
cials hearing of the intention, searched for the
body, and the remains were taken to an unker
taker's, properly secured and coffined, where
it was delivered over to the friends. The chief
members of the faculty were arrested but re
leased on bail. The case of the college j.mitor

Judge Beardsley sustained the first, fourth
and fifth counts of the indictment. Theiourth
and nth counts specifically charged defendents
with a corrupt and unlawful intent to defraud
the policy holders, and, therefore, with high
crime and misdemeanor. One specific point is
an alleged bribery of Charles T. Lewis, then
