THE beggarly attendance at the meeting
addressed by Senator Windom on Monday
night proves that the citizens of St. Paul
have made tip their minds on political ques
tions, and that the verdict is not favorable
to Bill Washburn's pretensions.
ME. HAYES had a majority of 59,205 votes in
Iowa in 187G. Official returns show that the
majority for the Republican state tieket on
the 9th inst., amounted to but 9,389. Can
it be that the good Democratic leaven is
working in that blackest of all black States?
THE Sultan of Turkey refuses the good
offices of a commission of foreign merchants
who are anxious to devise means by which
the depreciation of the currency can be ar
retted. Th papor currency of that coun
try is almost as fur below par as our green
backs were in 1864, and there is a good pros
pect for a still further decline.
OB TOOMBS and Jeff Davis, the only two
American born residents of this country of
suitable age who are not citizens of the re
public, have altogether too much to say
about how things should bo run. W arewhether
not running this government to suit them,'
and the sooner they adopt a muzzle as a
trade-mark the better the people generally
will be pleased.
BEN BUTLER has a valuable and influential
champion in Wendell Phillips. The elo
quent advocate is out in a card in which he
takes strong ground in favor of the financial
views espoused by Butlor, and declares that
he represents the determination of the
people to take the currency out of the con
trol of the money rings, and keep possession
of it themselves.
THE three BillsBill Washburn, Bill Win
dom and Bill Kinghave "bit off more than
they can chaw." They find it up-hill work

BISMARCK is not slow to avail himself of

IN Chicago the only political excitement
appears to be relative to the shrievalty. The
Congressional tickets are seldom mentioned
in political circles or in the newspapers, but,
if we may judge from newspaper reports,
the city is shaken down even to the last
mortgage upon the question of who shall
rule the county jail for the next two years.
There is neither rhyme nor reason in this,
for the Congressional ticket is far more im
portant than the office of sheriff.
JOSEPH OPPEHHEIM, the Democratic candi-
date for the Lrgislature from the First and
Second wards is the man who should be
elected. is a wholesale merchant, and a
city so largely engaged in mercantile busi
ness as St. Paul should have a merchant in
her legislative delegation. Dr Murphy's
extended practice, which it would be impos
sible for him to omit for sixty days, renders
it absolutely impossiple for him to discharge
the duties, and he would not be in his seat
one-half of the time if elected.
FOEWZEIS'S VOTE FOR SflTIELD.S.
Hod Strait, true to his dishonest inborn
instincts, is resorting to a contemptible
fraud to secure votes for his Congressional
candidacy. Made desperate by the certainty
of his defeat, he is attempting to stem the
tide by an effort to arraign the Irish Demo
cats of the district against Henry Poehler,
the Democratic nominee, by parading the
fact that he voted at the last session of Con
gress to make Gen. James Shields door
keeper of the House. Of his vote in this
case, it is only necessary to say that it was
given in pursuance of a contemptible party
trick, to divide and demoralize the
Democratic part*, and with no
idea of conferring honor upon
the gray-haired veteran of two wars, but
was in fact, as Gen. Shields considered it,
an insult to him. Henry Poehler, however,
when a member of the legislature in 1858,
showed his appreciation of Gen. Shields, by
casting his vote for him and helping to e'ect
him to the office of United States Senator
from Minnesota. Th difference between
Hod Str-it and Poehler is that the former
voted for Gen. Shields when the vote carried
with it an insult of the grossest character,
and the latter voted for him when it confer
red upon him one of the highest honors
within the gift of the American people.
WINDOW'S GREAT DOUBLE ACT.
Seldom have the people of this country
'been treated to as ludicrous an exhibition of
demagoguery as that furnished by Senator
Windom on Monday evening. W have
heard a great deal of late years of the at
tempt of the Democratic party to ride two
horses at the same time, but its most bril
liant effort in that direction i i not worthy of
comparison with Mr. Windom's great feat,
and we doubt if ever before a public mm,
in one speech,has laid himself and the party
he represents open to such ridicule. I
would be charitable to suppose that

enemy in his month to steal away his brains,

Again, what will be the result of another
time of inflation? Speculators want it so they
can speculate and grow rich. They will come
out at the top md the laboring men at the bot
tom. Gamblers would like it. They want un
certainty as to values. They are skilled in
their vosation and bound to profit whether
there is arise or fall in currency. Bankrupt
politicians want the change, as they can get
into anew party aud a now chance to receive
offices. The discontented ones think that any
thing will be better than at present.
We might naturally conclude that as the
speculators, gamblers, bankrupt politicians
and discontented ones are in favor of in
flation, Mr. Windom and the party he repre
sents would be opposed to it. Not so for in
the very next breath he recites as one of the
chief advantages of resumption the fact that
it would largely increase the volume of the
currency. That we may not be accused of
doing him injustice, we quote his exact lan

ei'^ht cents. So that by resuming you will have
more currency than ever before.
Thus does the chairman of the appropria
tions committee of the United States- Senate
blow hot and cold in one and the same
breath in the hope of winning votes. Such
a patent contradiction has never appeared in
the utterances of the veriest demagogue that
ever trod American soil. denounce a

ly dishonest when he defines the Republican
policy as contemplating the joint circulation
of gold, greenbacks and national banknotes.
He knows that the gold issued from the
treasury will never go into general circula
tion, but will be hoarded in the
banks and by private individuals.
He knows further that the
treasury will not as long as it is con

John Sherman is in a conspiracy with the
national banks having for its object the re
tirement of all greenbacks, and the substitu
tion in their stead of national bank notes.
Any attempted concealment or denial of
this purpose will go for naug'it, for the fact
is too well known and proved to permit of a
successful contradiction. Mr Windom's
great double act of Monday night will not
only subject him to the ridicule of every
thinking man, but go far towards disgusting
puople with the party of which he is one of
the acknowledged leaders.
THE MORMON QUESTION.
There seems to be a great deal of dif
ficulty in procuring evidence against the
Mormons who are now being prosecuted for
bigamy at Salt Lake City. All the witnesses
who have thus far been called refuse to testi
fy on the ground that they are bound by an
oath to the Mormon church not to reveal the
secrets of the endowment house, or that by
answering they might criminate themselves.
Under these circumstances the court is pow
erless to compel them to testify, and the in
dications are that those charged with the of
fense will be released for lack of sufficient
testimony to secure conviction.
The wisdom of these prosecutions is open
to question. Thus far no good has been
effected by them, but one conviction having
been brought about. Bu even this case
has not reached a final settlement,
as it is now before the supreme court for ad
judication on constitutional questions. Th
Mormons claim that polygamous marriage
is a part of their religion, and fall back
upoa the guarantee in the bill of rights of
immunity from prosecution for religion's
sake. O this question the courts of final
resort have not yet given a decision, and un
til they do, these local prosecutions must
come to naught. W havo no doubt but the
law prohibiting polygamy will be sustained.
But if so the same difficulty of securing
convictions under it will remain, and the
only resort for the Utah authoriti will be
to prosecute our polygamous brethren under
the statute for adultery. Such proceedings,
however, are open to objections, and. it re
mains a question whether it will not be bet
ter to rely upon moral influences to cure the
great evil. I cannot be denied but since
the intercourse between Mormons and Gen
tiles has been unobstructed, poly
gamy has perceptibly declined.
Men fear public opinion and hesi
tate to take too many women to wife,
while women, by association with their own
sex of other religious beliefs soon learn to
loathe a polygamous marriage. Thus grad
ually this tenet of the Mormon faith is be
coming unpopular, and if matters are al
lowed to continue undisturbed as at present.
we are confident that with the disappearance
of the present generation, polygam will
have almost if not entirely disappeared.
Prosecutions only awaken bitterness and
unite the Mormon church for the defense of
its pet institution. Public opinion, unre
stricted intercourse between the people of
Salt Lake City and the outside world, will,
we have no doubt, prove a far more effectual
remedial agent than legal processes. Poly
gamy is an offense from which every sensitive
nature instinctively shrinks, and as intelli
gence increases it will decrease until in time
it will be wholly eradicated.

the intrinsic merits of the play, they can be
commended as near akin to nature. Each
day the foibles, misdemeanors and sins of
omission and commission of humanity are
presented with an impressment highly natu

to complain-that the life drama partakes too
much of a Chinese play. Each day
a series of acts are presented, and
the day following others similar in character
are reproduced. snch hypocritical fault

under the sun," should be quoted as a com

world's a stage," and the life scenes and
acts of man, the actor, are portrayed too nat
urally to raise the semblance of a cavil. If
the drama "Fiat Justitia" be worthy of the
highest commendation, the actors should be
awarded no less praise. They vivify the
play, and as the mimetic art is, in perfec

be denominated artists of the highest at

Serious Charge in the Chicago Custom

CHICAGO, Oct. 29.The United States grand
jury has been in session some days investigat
ing the alleged frauds in the construction of
the government building in this city. The in
vestigation grew out of the confidential report
made to the secretary of the treasury by the
collector of this port, who was assisted by
Aasistant Attorney Thomson. The case was
presented to the jury by District Attorney
Bangs, who gave as a reason for the exclusion
from the jury room of Thomson, the officer
thoroughly familiar with the facts,
that he had received indirect instruc
tions to so. He said that the
attorney general was net concerned in it.
The inference was drawn that it must have
been ordered by either the secretary of the
treasury, or some one in his department. The
statement being brought to the attention of
Secretary Sherman, he denied ia the most em
phatic manner that he had auy agency in the
exclusion of Thomson, and said that it was on
the strength of the report made by him that
the case was before the jury. He also said he
should call the attention of Attorney General
Devena to the matter at once. This decided

action of Secretary Sherman has increased the
excitement in this city and places the district
attorney in an unpleasant predicament. The
Times and Tribune charge that this is a scheme
to defeat the ends of justice, and demand that
the conduct of the case shall now be placed in
the hands of Thomson.
The Tribune in the morning will say on this
point: "Meantime the investigation about
which Mr. Thomson knows everything worth
knowing, ar about which Judge Bangs knows
next to nothing, is in progress. We do not
charge that Jndge Bangs designs to defeat the
ends of justice, but we do not hesitate to. as
sert that his course in excluding Mr. Thomson
from the case tends directly to that end. The
government of the United States is not beitm
represented as it might be, and this by the
arbitrary interposition of Judge Bangs, a
sworn government officer. Mr. Thomson should
be reinstated in his proper place in the con
duct of the investigation and that at once."

RENEWAL OF WAR INEVITABLE.
ST. PETERSBURG, Oct. 29The Golos sayB if
the Russian people were consulted they would
unhesitatingly decide for a renewal of the
struggle. Despite the expedients of diplomacy
to arrest the national course of historical de
velopment, it is evident that inevitable crisis
in the Eastern question has arrived. There is
no apparent prospect of completing the organi
zation of the Balkan peninsula on the basis of
humanity and justice without a free war.

BELIEF BOAT CHAMBERS.
S T. LOUIS, Oct. 29.The National relief boat
Chambers arrived at quarantine this morning.
After a brief stay they came into the city, and
the boat now lieB at call. She has been thor
oughly disinfected, fumigated, and scrubbed
from stem to stern. Officers and crew all well.
Lieut. Hall, commander of the boat since the
death of LiUui. Banner, says the suffering of
the people in the little towns on the river bank,
and a few miles back, is very great, and de
mands immediate attention. I some places
be says the people are almost starving, food
being scarce and crops very scanty. The peo
ple can be easily reached now that the
quarantine is being raised. Lieut.
Hall says the circumstances attending
the death of Lieut. Benner were greatly exag
gerated by Dr. Reilly, who, he elates, was with
the expedition ostensibly as a physician, rep
resenting the Chicago relief association, cut in
reality as a reporter for a Chicago piper. He
charges Reilly with sending highly sensational
dispatches, not only about Benner's sickness
and death, but about his own very brief illness,
wl.ich greatly alarmed his family. Reilly left
the relief boat at Vicksburg, and was not seen
since by any member of the expedition.

John E Owens appears for the first time
in St. Paul to-morrow evening, when "Solon
Shingle" and the "Victims" will be produced.
The following notice of the great comedian
in these two plays is taken from the Boston
Mr. E. Owens appeared at the Boston
theatre on Monday evening after a long ab
sence from Bo-ton. He was cordially received,
and attracted large audiences through the
week. He enacted Joshua Butterby in "Vic-
tims," and Solon Shingle. In hoth parts
he created all of the old amusement
and excited all of the old admiration.
Mr. Owens is certainly without a rival in this
country as a comedian. Hi humor is irresist
able. and he has that fine nerception of propri
ety which causes even his exaggerations to
take an air of naturalness. His powers of
facial expression are surprising, and are, more
over, so varied as to create an impression that
he could act a part intelligibly without ever re
sorting to language. As ''Joshua Butterby"
he invests a farcial conception with an
air of almost tragic reality. Nothing
could be funnier than his playing of this
somewhat over-ripe lady-killer, with his intel
lectual aspirations, his frivolous dignity, his
easily offended pride, and his variable esteems.
Its fun is overwhelming, its bonhommie cap
tivating. There is a nicety, a polish, and a
keen appreciation of humor in its best sense
everything that Mr. OwenR doeR that stamp
him not only as a comic artist of the first class,
but as a close observer of human nature in it*
most vulnerable aspects.
On Nov. 2, the people of this city will be
afforded an opportunity of hearing the cele

recently released from an English penal dun
geon, after a servitude of seven and a half
years. Th title of Davitt's lecture is "Eng
land's Magnanimity to her Enemies," a sub
ject fraught with teeming interest to every
Irish-American, and, as delivered from the
eloquent lips of one who has partaken of the
bitter dregs of the cup of tyranny, the matter
of the lecture is one which must entrance
even the most indifferent listener. The press
of the East, wherever Mr. Davitt has ap by
peared, is unanimous in its flattering enco
miums, and Armory hall, Wabasbaw street,
