THOSE STOLEN BOOKS.
An Order to "Sliow Cause Why tlio Same
Should Not be Returned to th Court"
Rebukeof Such Sharp Practice by Judge
DETROIT, Mich Oct. 9.Yesterday Mr. Sher
man, assistant United States district attorney,
submitted a petition to Judge Baxter, United
States circuit court, asking an order to show
cause against Lawrence McCloskey, and officers
and servants of the New York mine, why they
should not return to the office of Mr. Maynard,
of Marquette, the four books stolen
thence on the night of Sept.
23, while being used in evidence
in the income tax suit of the United States vs.
Samuel J. Tilden, and restraining those per
sons from otnerwise disposing of the books.
Judge Baxter granted the petition and issued
the order prayed for. The hearing commenced
this afternoon. Mr. Lathrop, counsel fgr
McCloskey and others coucernsd, urged that
the books were being copied in full that some
parts of them did not relate to the suit, and
that if the order asked were made the defend
ant, Tilden, would be prejudiced by the intro
duction of illegal testimony.
Judge Baxter said that to seize and carry
away books was not a proper way to raise a
question of admissibility of evidence, and went
on to say: "Mr. Lathrop, this is no way to try
cases. You know it is not a proper mode of
aerving a writ of replevin to have horses and
carriages in readiness with the attorney in the
case in the box. and then attempt to seize papers
and books legally, before an officer competent
to take testimony, snd remove them from the
presence and custody of that officer. I think
Mr, Tilden too good a lawyer to sanction anv
such proceedings, and have no doubt if you
telegraph him he will give up the books. At
all events, I think the power of this court
ample to compel their return, and, if necessary,
I will exhaust that power."
Further hearing was adjourned to 10 o'clock
In the Harland case the entire forenoon was
taken up by arguments of counsel on the mo
tion by Mr. Harland to dismiss the charges
against himself. This afternoon Mr. Harland
argued over an hour to show that the telegramR
which passed between himself and New York
contained no evidences which tended to show
that he had complicity with stealing the books.
Upon the conclusion ot the argument the com
missioner deuitd the motion to di&miss the case,
and it was adjourned till to-morrow, when Har
land will put witnesses for the defense on the
Steele County Democrats.
OWATONNA, Oct. 9.The Democrats of Steele
county have nominated D. E. Moorehouse for
Senator, and H. M. Harting and L. C. Woodman

This is considered a very strong ticket, and
they are bound to make a clean run. You can
bet on a solid Democratic delegation to St.

The Few Remaining Henchmen of the Lost
Party Meet. Resolve and NominateA
Resolution Endorsing the Man on Horse
back WithdrawnOther Political Points.
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 9.The Republican State
convention met at Mercantile Library hall
at noon and temporarily organized by the elec
tion of Alex. T. Dering, of Randolph county,
chairman, and Rudolph Herzel, of Gasconade
county, secretary. Business committees were
appointed and the convention took a recess.
The convention on reassembling permanently
organized by the election of M. McMillan,
Cooper connty, president E. C. Bennett, Mi
nor county, secretary.
The committee on platform reported the fol
lowing resolutions, which were adopted unani
We, the Republicans of Missouri, in conven
tion assembled, resolve
FirstThat the Republican party, inspired
by its past history and achievements, renew its
allegiance to the high principles which have
guided it thus far and, hav ng saved the
nation'b existence, it now pledges itself to ful
fill all promises made when assaulted by treason
and rebellion, to the end that the* nation's
honor be preserved.
SecondThat the bonds of the United States
and legal tender notes issued under the neces
sities of the rebellion are sacred debts of the
nation to be paid to the last dollar in the uni
versally recognized standard money of the
world that the only money recognized in busi
ness and exchange of the world is gold and
silver coin, of a weight and fineness which
gives it universal currency and we demand
that all our currency shall at all times be con
vertible into coin at the will of the holders
and that coin and currency shall be kept at par
with the gold standard of the world.
ThirdWe declare that the interests of capi
tal and labor are so linked together that all ac
tion hostile to the one must be injurious to the
other, and we condemn all attempts to array
one against the other as tending to establish
enmities and prejudices between employer and
FourthWe demand full protection for all
citizens of every race and color in every part of
the United States in the free exercise and en
joyment of all constitutional and legal civil and
political rights and privileges. We insist and
demand that there shall never he any payment
directly or indirectly, of what are called rebel
claims, and we demand that all legitimate ex
penses of the government shall be met fairly
and honestly by early and adequate appropria
FifthWe arraign the Democratic party as a
constant disturber of public tranquility and
confidence as the wanton foe of publio se
enrity as constantly attempting to weaken the
power and authority of the nation by crippling
the army in time of uncertainty and danger.
We call attention to the fact that it is dependent
on a solid South, and is thereby at all times
subservient to all its sectional demands that
it has never ceased to aggravate the troubles of
the country by mischievous agitation through
out the entire period of its supremacy in the
House of Representatives. We arraign it as
faithless to the obligations of national honor,
and the chief support of the wild schemes of
inflation, repudiation, and other financial dis
orders which imperil public credit and busi
ness security, and we believe and declare that
its further and greater success would be a na
ti i:iu!c:ii:.!ily. SixthWe particularly arraign the Demo
cratic party of Missouri as responsible for a
criminal disregard of the constitution of the
State, whereby over a half a million dollars of
money, which has been collected and paid into
the treasury of the State, has hewi ti o*a-
lost, which the people of the State must be
asain taxed to make good. I is our belief
that since the party came into power it has
maintained and supported a ring of plunderers
who have subsisted and fatted upon the revenue
paid by the pe pie, and it has so far made no
efforts to punish them, and while we would
leave all questions of paying municipal debts
to the courts and to the people interested, we
charge the Democracy of the State with a co
vert design of attacking the national authoriity
in its judiciary department and encouraging
the doctrine of nullification under the specious
pretence of protecting the rights of a people,
whom its trusted officers are engaged at the
time in robbing.
SeventhWe favor a liberal Bystem of full
and strictly secular education for the children.
EighthWe are opposed to any repeal or
modification of the resumption act whereby
its efficiency \vill be in the least impaired. We
believe that the era of hard timeB is rapidly
passing away, and a period of national and in
dividual prosperity is beginning to dawn upon
the country, and for thiR promised return of
better times we feel indebted to the firmness,
honesty and purity of the present administra
tion of the national government.
NinthAn emergency in the history of the
country, second only to the great struggle to
overthrow the rebellion, now confronts us. As,
then, the Republican party was the sole organ
ized protection against national disruption, and
patriotic citizens, of whatever party names,
rallied under its standard, in defence of the
union, so now the Republican organization is
the only efficient bulwark against national re
pudiation and disgrace, and it again invites all
good citizens, of whatever previous po
litical ties, to unite with it in preserving
national honor. To all Republicans this great
exigency especially appeals to rise to its high
obligations and join heart and head, for the
triumph these vital principles upon which

MADISON AND HAYES. *fcc
The Present White Honu Occupant Visits
the Home of the JF*ne of the ConstJtn-
tlonRemarks by Hayes, Schorz and
Devens. g^ -J^j-^,
WASHINGTON. Oct. 9.-^-The President, accom
panied by Mrs. Hayes, Secretary Schorz, At
torney General Devenp, Col. Mosby, Miss
Mosby, Edwim C. Marshall, only son of the late
Chief Justice Marshall, jnembers of the com
mittee of invitation and. others, left Washing
ton this morning for th| estate of ex-President
Madison, at Orange Court House. The Presi
dent responded to an address welcome, ex
pressing his thanks for the generona -welcome
extended him and companions, and paid a high
tribute to James Madison, father of the consti
tution. He then introduced Judge Devens,
who spoke for a few minutes in the same line
of remarks as the President. The Presidential
party then proceeded in carriages to Mont
pelier, the Madison seat, where they arrived
about noon. A large company from the neigh
boring country precedeel them, having been in
vited to participate. The President was wel
comed by Col. John Wells, grand nephew of
Madison. The President replied:
Ladies and Gentlemen: It is a great gratifi
ation indeed, to be so welcomed to the homo
of Madison. You have heard a beautiful ad
dress just delivered by the nearest surviving
relative of James MaUiMijj, a man whose name
will be held in grateful remembrance by lovers
of liberty and stable government as long as
liberty nd constitutional government exists
on earth. Madison having so linked his name
and memory with the best law and the best
constitution the world has ever known, his
feme is forever safe. He began the work of for
mation of the constitution and in the convention
he was a leading spirit, his wisdom and advice
contributing to that result. After the consti
tution was framed by the convention it was
for him to persuade the people to adopt it. In
the convention of Virginia there was a great
struggle as to whether that commonwealth
should ratify the constitution, and it was
largely due to the respect and appreciation the
people had for his counsels that this question
was carried in the convention. He assisted
in carrying the constitution into effect as a
member of Congress, as a member of the cabi
net, and as President of the United States.
After the close of his public life, no
longer disturbed b^ party conflicts, he survived
for many years an interested spectator of pass
ing events. Distinguished men of bis time
were glad to sit at his feet and hear hia words
of wisdom and patriotism. In my remarks at
Orange Court House to-day I called attention
to an estimate of this country by Gladstone,
whrh 1 do not think too high. It is contained
in an aiticle written by that distinguished
statesman, entitled, "Kin beyond the sea," in
which he says: "The American constitution,
so far as I can see, is the most wonderful
work ever struck off at a given time
by the brain and purpose of man. It has
had a century of trial under pressnre of exi
gencies caused by expansion unexampled in
point of rapidity and range, and its exemption
from formal change, though not entire, has
certainly proved the sagacity of its construc
tors and strength of the fabric. We may well
honor the name and memory of the man who
did so much for the present and future of the
In view of this beautiful scene, the magnifi
cent range of the bine ridge, this verdant lawn
and hospitable mansion, here at the home of
Madison, we may surely say that if the advice
and patriotic purposes this great man had
been observed we should hare been saved from
civil strife, and as in the past, so in the future,
there are no troubles that can arise in the ad
ministration of the affairs of our country that
cannot be settled by the recurrence of the
prineiples of Madison which inculcate
submission of all sections, States, communities
and citizeps to the constitution and laws of the
land. The bottonl and foundation principles
on which Madison built, will always afford us
means of adjusting all of our difficulties. I,
however, have no fears. Questions fraught
with danger may recur, and we may sometimes
be disposed to look on the gloomy side, but let
us all hope flat with a model constitution to
guide us, the worst that can ever befall us is
over. Nothing can be so dangerous as the events
that have already transpired, and the scenes
through which we have already paused.
My fellow citizens, the President has to aid
him in the discharge of his official duties, gen
tlemen called cabinet ministers. These gentle
men assist him in finding a way to escape from
difficulties. Most fortunately for the Presi
dent, he is permitted to put some share of his
troubles on somebody else, anil the one that I
put most trouble upon is the secretary of the
interior. He has a sort of omnibus depart
ment, and when I am in doubt to what depart
ment any matter of business belongs, I send it
to the interior department. The secretary has
charge of the public lands, pensions, Indians
and everything that nobody else has. 1 now
present to you Gen. Carl Sciurz, secretary of
Secretary Schnrz made a few well timed re
marks, and Attorney-General Devens made a
short speech. The party returned to Washing
ton this evening.

Trouble Anionq the Falthfitl.
Tuesday last at 1 o'clock p. M., the dele
gates met in convention at the court house
in this place, and after arranging a few pre
liminary matters proceeded to business by
nominating Hon. A. E. Rice for Senator by
acclamation. As the next move was about
to be made it was apparent to all that some
discontent was brewing somewhere, and after
an informal ballot for Representative, the
thing collasped, as it were, or rather the "dis
content exploded." Ihe vote stood as fol
lows: J. Q. A. Rraden, 13 Edward Larson
19 Ole O. Lien, 1. As the vote was an
nounced the Swift and Chippewa county
delegations withdrew, damning the Kandi
yohi delegation, which was claimed to have
been put np tor the put pose of beating
Swift county's choice. It seems that by an
old understanding the Kandiyohi delegation
were to support the person which was favor
ed by Swift county, and they certainly did so
until it came to a final pull when Kandiyohi
pulled clear from everything. The Kbndi
yohi delegation afterwards re-assembled and
nominated Edward Larson. Thus ended
one of the "bitterest political" conventions
that ever assembled in western Minnesota,
and we hope that an affair so disgraceful in
every respect may not occur again.
A farmer's team ran away three miles

expected to recover. The father, who was
driving, was somewhat bruised. The little
sufferer was taken to a house near by, where
a physician pronounced her injuries fatal.

Prince Bismarck was grateful to the Crown
Prince for not allowing mercy to supersede jus
tice. The machinations of Socialists were
partly responsible for a commercial depression
and lack of employment. People should re
member the series of crimes which resulted
and culminated in attempts to assassinate a
monarch who, regardless of the crown and life,
had devoted his whole existence and welfare to
the people. Yet some persons refused to see
any peril and denied the urgency of this bill.
The chancellor claimed his policy was free
from any hidden tendency. He pursued a tan
gi le oSject, and he looked to both Conservative
parties and to National Liberals to paRS the
bill. He isked them to repose confidence in
the government, saying. "Are yon more afraid
of me than of the social democrats? If so,
another mnst take my place. I wish that the
three parties which intend to enable us to pass
this bill should generally go hand in hand
forming a united bulwark against all tempests
to which the German empire may be exposed.
Debate adjourned until to-morrow.
