then they retard its advance and injure it
good looks. If, moreover, they build on their

they make their lack of taste and considerate

THANKFULNESS AND ENTERPRISE.
I have not forgotten that this is a day set
apart for public thanksgiving. I fact, in
what has been suggested as amongst our civic
possibilities, I think I have given occasion for
general thankfulnc ss. N past is complete,
however rich with benefits it may have been.
We remember these last, but then we remember
them most gratefully,as earnests of better things
to come. We have occasion to thank the Prov
idence that shapes all history, for what St. Paul
is, but a profounder gratitude is ours, as we
cast the horoscope of the future and try to make
out the features of the St. Paul that is to be.
Some of you look back on years of earnest toil,
here spent in fashioning the young, crude life
of this city, and we who have entered into your
labors rejoice with thankfulness over what you
wrought, and the better heritage which is ours
in consequence. But you have a right, with
well earned laurels crowning your brows, to
look to you ng 8t Paul, and bid it do no less
nobly and wisely to develop its civic life, and
augment its fame and thrift.
And r,o recognizing our indebtedness to the
God of the harvest and the helper of the virtu
ous and industrious, we bid our gratitude, well
termed the "memory of the heart," inspire us to
build in coining years a fairer city, to adorn
her witn noble institutions, to fill her borders
with the um of diversified industries, to line
her streets with comely tenements, and tasteful
palaces. I is our thankfulness for the tradi
tions and growth of a checkered past, which
shall prompt our ambition to be ublic-spirited
merchants and professional men to be saga
cious and energetic in promoting civic growth
to be confederate together for purposes con
nected with the public good and gaiu. Le us
be animated by no petty rivalries, and tinged
by no mean jealousies, but filled rather with
magnanimities and wisdom with the kindli
ness and forethought which should characterize
men of business, aud builders of a city whose
fnture is given to them to shape
To "the St. Paul that may be," I ask all citi
zens to lookand acknowledging now their
oneness, in the citizenship which makes of the
place, the merest of each and all, resolve that
they will, with lofty faith and strong hands,
build the city that we desire, and the city that
we can shape.

The main design of this day of national
thanksgiving, at its institution under Presi
dent Lincoln, was the supplication of God's
blessing upon our country's arms, and the ex
pression of gratitude for the Divine blessing
upon the efforts made to defend the integrity
of the nation. One great object of the day,
still, is to praise Go that the blessings, for
which we paid so great a price, are maintained
to us that our citizens, in the main, are loyal
and our government strong, without being
tyranical and that freedom, peace and order,
under law, are, to such a large extent, enjoyed
within our borders.
what Go has given through
the arms and counsels of our
country's defenders, it is for us to preserve
and one of the most obvious means of doing
so is to be faithful to those principles of honor
to the government, and of obedience to the
laws which were so conspicuously violated in
the great rebellion. I seems to me, therefore,
that, if there is a day in the year in which we
may appropriately consider the duty which we
owe to the civil government of the country in
which we live, this day of national thanksgiv
ing is the day.
It may be well first of all, to lay down the
principle from which the duties of citizens to
ward rulers receive their strongest sanctions
the principle that civil government is a divine
institution appointed for the benefit of man
kind. Civil government is an ordinance of
God, as the Bible expressly asserts: "Tho pow
ers that be are ordained of God." The mean
ing of this is not, of course, that particular
rulers are, in every instance, nominated of God,
or that any one form of government
has an express divine sanction. Go
does not say, you shall set up
a monarchy or a republic or a democracy but
while the source of civil authority, in the
general, is to be found in the fountain-head of
all power, the particular kind of government
is wisely entrusted to the ordinary principles
which guide riit in human affairs and in
every kind and form of government where the
principles of justice and equity are maintained,
we have a virtual communication of Divine
authority investing it with its own peculiar sa
Government is ordained of Go forth flood
of man. Under the reiun of the Roman em
peror, Nero, Paul could say that rulers are "the
ministers of Go to us for good," and Christ
could exhoit His hearers to give Caesar his due
in the reign of Tiberius. These were both ty
rants i the worst type, and all the officers of
the empire were heathen and were often guilty
of severe oppression yet, even under that gov
ernment, the shelter of law was enjoyed
by those who did thn.t which was good.
Any sort of government, indeed, is
preferable to the wild misrule of
entire lawlessness, and it would appear that
the existence of mankind is possible only
through the medium of governments which de
fend them from wrong and injuries.
This, then, is the principle upon which the
bible enforces all the duties we owe to our
rulersthat governments are ordained of Go
for the advantage of men.
Now, let mention some of the more im
portant duties which are solemnly bound,
by the sanction I have already stated, to render
to the government under'whieh we live.
It is our duty to aid in the support of the
This is what pur .Lord meant specially when
he said, "Bender to Caesar the things that are
Csesar's as if he said, this is the existing
government, you acknowledge it and receive
the benefit of its laws, then pay your taxes. So
Paul, announcing it as God's precept, says,
"Render tribute to whom tribute is due." I
is not the question whether this
government of Nero or Tiberius
ia a good government, or whether the money
is properly used. I is the existing govern
ment, and it cannot exist without funds to
carry it on. If civil government is an invalua
ble blessing, it is entitled to suitable support.
Your person, is, by the power of government,
protected from assault: the fruit of your labor
it made sure to you your home is preserved
from invasion th law vindicates your out
raged reputation, and you aro bound by every
consideration of gratitude and duty to contrib
ute your share to the expenses of tho machinery
by which tin.se beneficent operations are car
ried on. The payment of taxes is tho lifting
of a debt which every individaul, according to
his circumstances, owes to the government for
tho benefit he receives. We should take up
these obligation--*, not as a thing of force, but
a matter of conscience. I is a lesson great
ly needed in this day, that the payment of our
tisea should be held as mu ch a mat
ter of^ principle and punctuality as the
payment of any other debts, and that
any attempt to escape from a due
share of th public buidtns i a mean and
dishonorable fraud. For there aro many, who
acquit themselves honorably in all their pri
vate engagements, ho think it no evil to in
jure the public revenue by evading taxes and
eluding the payme nt customs. I myself
hive heard those who would bristle with indig
nant amazement at any charge of private dis
honesty, boast how they had oome from Europe
with a trunk full of valuable goods, and ran
the whole ashore outside of the custom house,
corrupting the officials fty a share of the booty.
There is a deadness of conscience on this sub
ject, which needs the quickening of an earnest
and solemn Scriptural representation. Con
sider your taxes as debts, and let there be no
illegal and underhand arts employed to evade
or reduce them.
At the same time, it is certainly the duty of
rulers to make the taxes as light as the real
necessities of the country will permit, to dis
tribute them so in proportion to the varying
ability of the citizens that none shall be un
justly burdened, and to be unselfish, honest
and economical in spending the public money,
especially in a time of prevailing distress.
II. We owe to all in authority, according to
their different stations, civil respect and honor,
both in our speech and behavior.
This also is a duty which arises out of the
fact that civil government is an ordinance of
God, and it is especially enjoined in His word,
where we are enjoined to ''honor the King,"
and "not curse the ruler of the people." "De
spising dominion, and not being afraid to
speak evil of dignities," were marks of the
false teachers of whom Jude and Peter wrote.
We should be very careful to avoid any ap
proach to that which is so severely condemned
in the scriptures. I do not know of any
countrv where the warning is more needed
than in ours. Personal abuse is one of the
distinguishing features of our politics, and
flinging mud at public officials seems to be
held as one of the dearest rights of American
citizens. Newspapers and political orators will
originate and give currency to defamatory
falsehoods in regard to the magistracy of the
country, and hurl at them a broadside of con
temptuous expressions which no circum
stances can excuse, and whoso result
must bet degrade the offices as well as the
men who hold them. Partisans on either side
take up and echo such language, and the rank
and file of voters, on one side or the other, be
lieve the stories and labor under the melan
choly impression that the country is going to
the dogs and, whoever is President, a large
part of the people denounce him as "King Log,"
sent splashing down into the pool by an angry
Neither party has a monopoly o this habit
of disrespectful talk concerning rulers. I is a
diseased overgrowth of a good thing in our sys
temthat freedom of thought and speech
which, kept within the limits of decency and
courtesy, is one of our most precious privileges.
We need not withhold the language of disap
proval and censure when it seems required but,
whatever sentence we are called to pronounce,
let it not be in terms of railing and contempt.
The efficiency of men in office depends much
upon the reputation in which they are held.
Pile all the Billingsgate vocabulary
upon them, and you not only em
barrass them in their duties, but you
go far take away all sense of decency and
shame from them and make them such as your
charges donate. And then, as rulers are the
representatives of the community, we show
our deference to them that reverence which we
entertain for the public, of which they are the
federal head. There is respect due to the
office, apart from the personal character of
them by whom it is filled.
III. We owe cordial allegtanca to tM, Govern
ment of our country and submission to its laws.
"Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's,''
said Christ. "Whosover resistoth the power,
resisteth the ordinance of God," said Paul.
We may not resist or refuse obedience, because,
in our judgment, the demands and enactments
are unreasonable or unconstitutional for,
while unjust and unconstitutional measures
are wrong, no system of government could
possibly put the power of determining such
questions into the hands of private individuals.
I can find in the Bible only one limita
tion to the obedience we should render
to the officers of government. When the
orders of human authorities oppose the positive
commands of God, we dare not hesitate "We
augur to obey God rather than man." We
must render to God the things that are God's,
as well as to Csesar the things that are Caesar's.
No other scriptural limitation can be found.
Under certain circumstances of grievous
wrong, part of the members of a nation may be
justified, before tho eye of history, and in the
sight of God, in forcible resistance. Every
such case must be determined solemnly upon
his own merits, in view of all the circum
stances and with a regard to the consequences.
The Bible makes no provision for rebellion
against merely political tyranny, and every at
tempt to define the liberty of resistance will be
found to open the door of anarchy.
That government to which Christ and His
apostles urged men to give a hearty allegiance,
obeying not from fear, but for conscience sake,
was a despotism, and the rulers were entitled to
ne respect, apart from that which be
longed to their official trust. I al
legiance to such a government was
enjoined as part of duty to God, what excuse
can there be for lawlessness and looseness un
der such a government as ours? A old Eng
lish picture represents a king, with the motto
beneath, I govern all a bishop, with the
sentence, I pray for all a soldier, with tho
inscription, I fight for all and a farmer, who
pulls out his purse and exclaims, with a rueful
countenance, I pay for all." Th American
citizen combines the functions of these four.

governs, prays and fights for himself, and pays
all the expenses. W are, in an especial man
ner, put upon our honor to obey the laws
which, more than any other people, we have a
hand in imposing upon ourselves and a slack
allegiance goes to prove us unworthy of the
position we have taken as a people ho have
enough virtue aud self-control to govern our
This sort of talk is not uncalled for. Vain
and superficial minds think lightly of the
foundations of government and the perma
nence of social institutions, and they
are willing to hazard %\\C roost dan
gerous experiments upon existing laws
to remove the slightest evils. A vindictive
hatred of order and position inflames otheis
with an aversion to all regular government
where there are diversities of condition, and
rather than that any iobuld be higher than
they, they would have the whole social edifice
pulled to the ground.
There are others who ascribe all possible evils
to government, and, if they are not successful
in their undertakings, they lay the blame, not
on their own negligeno and laziness, but on
the laws and regulations of their country. I
speaking lightly of governments, they are re
viling an ordinance the most necessary f all
human things to be kept in sacred respect.
The remedy for such evils is in the hands of
the patriotic people of the land. Le us cul
tivate and propagate a spirit of reverence for
law, open out the avenues to honorable occupa
tion, and seek to lift our whole population up
into the light and peace of God, and we shall
have the surest pledge for the stability of our
government and the security of our social order.
I intended to speak of several other duties.
Ijthought to enforce, for one thing, the duty of
all good citizens to cast their votes, and aid in
elevating the right kind of men to office. I be
lieve that many Christian men act selfishly,
and fail in a positive duty, in absentiug them
selves from the polls, and letting the mob, in
some instances, have it all their own way. So
also, it seems to me, that it is undntiful for a
Christian to reject power, when it is offered,
and he could be of use. But we muBt deny
ourselves the further consideration of these
IV. Let me say, in the fourth place, tliat
we ought to pray with earnestness and fre
quency for the government and rulers of our
All ideas of benefit from any human institu
tion are vain, unless God impart is enriching
blessings and everything which bears the
name of fidelity, obedience, piety and morality
will, in the long run, be obtained only where
civil institutions are regarded in the light in
which they are regarded in the Word of God,
and where, in human legislation, the
echo of the Divine is heard and,
feeling this, we cannot, if we are
Christians, restrain prayer for those who hold,
in Buch large measure, the destinies of our
land in their bands. Le it therefore be our
prayer to Him who has the hearts of all in His
hand, that our rulers may be men at once of
ability, of integrity, and of public and Drivate
virtue, fearing Go dan hating covetousness
that thus, under the smile and blessing of th
Most High, it may be well with our beloved
country, both now and in th generations to

Looking outward at the experience of other

the line of public justice and orderly freedom,

we, who live in a Ia*d of unclasped and unfor
bidden Bibles, and where the ordinances of
Christianity are accessible to all classes,we
have surely reason for gratitude. An this
year, even, when there may be special reason
for humiliation as well as thanksgiving, not
withstanding cyclones and yellow fever, and
indifferent harvests in Minnesota, and a touch
of tight times everywhere, it is still true that,
"the lines have fallen to us in pleasant places,
and w. have a goodly heritage."
(2.) Finally, let rulers and people steadfastly
unite in Christian and patriotic exertions for the
promotion of their country's welfare.
Let those in stations of influence and au
thority be men of piety and patriotism, deeply
concerned for the welfare of the people, active,
firm, disinterested to repair tho moral desola
tions of the land and le all the people com
bine with them in the same grand object of
raising the walls of our common country
against the assaults of ignorance and error and
vice and civil dissension,ay, against every,
thing which would dislocate the foundations
again, or retard the cementiDg which has begun.
We have had enough of the wild horror of
civil strife. We remember how the death shots'
rattle and the murdering cannons' roar were
borne on the breezes from red Southern field*,
while our Sabbath bells were sprinkling music
over all the Northern land. We remember how,
when we knelt at our altars, or bowed in our
sanctuaries, our dear ones lay strewn in dying
agonies upon the bloody turf, and how the
timid moon peeped forth from amid the clouds
on miles of slain.
God preserve us forevermore from such
ghastly scenes, and give us all, from one end
of our land to the other, the feeling and serse
of brotherhood and may the only rivalry be,
which can do most for the material, moral and
spiritual advancement of our dear common

Mr. John A. Armstrong's Sudden Decease
YesterdayAn Old and Valuable Citizen
Gone From Amonqat UaBiief Account
of Mia Xiife.
The startling intelligence of the death of
Mr. John A. Armstrong, which occurred at
his late residence at 5:40 yesterday morning,
was received with the greatest astonishment
by our people. I was so unexpected that
his friends, who we re scarcely aware of his
illness, could hardly credit the report.
Mr. Armstrong, while out on the line of
the St Paul & Pacific road on Frid ay last,
caught a slight cold in addition to
one that was then suffering
from. But his friends did not
consider his case dangerous until
Wednesday afternoon, and even then had
hopes of his ultimate recovery. For several
years be has suffered occasionally from
bronchial trouble, and tho cold of Frid ay ag
gravated that difficulty and terminated in a
severe attack of membranous croup. About
3 o'clock on yesterday morning he was taken
much worse, a nd at 5:40 passed quietly away
as though falling asleep. retained his
consciousness to the last, and died as peace
fully as a child dropping asleep in its moth
er's arm s.
Mr. Armstrong was born in Ellsworth, Me.,
September 14th, 1831, and henco had just
past his forty seventh birthday. A the age
of twenty (i 1851) he was seized with the
California fever, and went to the Pacific
coast. Here he remained four years, en
gaged in mining, a nd other pursuits, a nd in
1855 returned to Maine. After spending a
few weeks with his old friends in the East
he came to Minnesota (i 1856), and located
in St. Anthony, and as ever since been a
resident of this locality. Shortly after his
arrival in Minnesota he was chosen marshal
of the old city of St Anthony,
a position he filled with credit for two years.
I 18G0, Mr. Armstrong was elected sheriff
of Hennepin county, and again in 18G2, and
1864, holding that responsible position three
successive terms. I 1866, he retired from
public life a nd entered upon an active and
useful business career, by opening the first
fuel office in Minneapoli s. Since that time
his business has grown with the growth of
the city, a nd he ad acquired a competence
before death overtook him. A the time of his
death he was one of the leading stockholders
in tho Northwestern Fuel company of this
city and St Paul, a stockholder in the First
National bank of Minneapolis, and also ad
qui te a large interest in a steamboat company
on the Missouri river. I is understood that
he leaves quite a large amount of property

The GLOBE can only repeat, for the benefit
of St Paul and Stillwater readers, that Em
erson's minstrel s, organiz ed as it is at pre s
ent, are, by all odds, the most complete and
attractive that ever visited th is city. I is
sufficient, in praise of the organization, to
say that ite last house was by far
the best, proving that the
fame of its two proceeding
performanc es had served as an advertise
ment and compelled the attendance of all
lovers of minstrelsy. The company go from
Minneapolis to Stillwater to-day, giving one
performan ce in that city, and on Saturday
and Monday night will occupy the Opera
House in St Paul. This end of the GLOBE
most cheerfully gives the troupe its most
cordial and unbiased endorsement.
Looking over the houses drawn' by' the
Metropolitan company afternoon and even
ing yesterday, one was tempted to ask
"Where do all the people come from?"
Notwithstanding the excellent houses drawn
by the Emerson troupe, Mr. Murray's friends
we re also out in force and furnished "rat
tling" houses. A the matinee every seat
both below and above was filled, while at the
the house reminded evening performance

XOYIMBER 29, 187a
one of the very best nights of Uncle Tom
week. O the play and the parts the GLOBS
has spoken fully before. I is all-sufficient
to say that the company improves with age
and as an evidence that our people appre
ciate their efforts the patronage improves
with the company.
A Association hall last night, Mr. Ben
jamin Taylor, the Western poet-journal
ist, was the attraction. Mr. Taylor's man
agement selected a bad night for his appear
ance. Superior entertainments we re too
plentiful last evening, and as a consequence
the audience was not extremely large. The
GLOBE man did not attend, but heard the
lecture well spoken offilled with fine poetic
thought and brilliant strokes of eloquence
wortay of more listenersb ut then Emerson
and Murray do draw fearfully.
What Was Hone In the Minneapolis
Thanksgiving services were held in several
churches yesterday. On the East Side all the
Evangelical denominations held a union service
at the Methodist church, Rev. McClary pleach
ing the sermon from the following text:
"And hath made of one blood all nations of men
for to dwell on all the face of the earth. Aud hath,
determined the times before appointed and
bounds of their habitations that they should seek the
Lord If early they might feel after Him and find
Him, though He be not far from every one of us.:
At Centenary M. E church the Baptist. Pres
byterian, Congrtgational and Methodist denom
inations united in holding services, Hev. A.
Btinson, of Plymouth Congregational church,
preachine from the following passages of
Genesis 18:23-33And Abraham drew near, and
said, Wilt taou also destroy the righteous with the
wicked 1 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within
the city, wilt thou also destroy and not spare the
place for fifty righte.ius that are therein? That be
far from thee to do after this manner, to fclay the
righteoun with the wicked: and that the righteous
should ba a* the wicked: aud that be far from thee:
eballnotthe Judjjeof all the earth do right? And
the Lord said, If I find in Sodom tifty righteous
withiu the city, then I will snare all the place for their
Bakes. And Abraham answered and baid, Behold
now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord,
which am but dust and ashes: Peradventure there
Ehall lack live of the fifty righteous, wilt thou destroy
ail the city for lack of five? And he said, If I ind
there forty and five, I will not destroy it. And he
spake unto him yet again, and said,"Peradventure
there shall be forty found there. And he said I will
not do it for forty's sake. And he said unto him, O
let not the Lord lie angry, and I will speak: perad
venture there shall be thirty found there. And he
said, 1 will not do it, if I find thirty there. And he
said, Behold now, I have taken unto me to speak
unto the Lsrd: peradventure there shall be twenty
found there. And he said, I will uot destroy it for
twenty's Bake. And he mud, 0 let not the Lord bo
angry, and I will frpeak yot but thte ence: peradven
ture ten should be found there. And he said, I wili
not destroy it for ten's sake. And the Lord wenthw
way us noou as he had left communing with Abra
ham aud Abraham returned unto his place.
Brother Tuttle, of the Church of the
deemer (Universalist) was left out i the cold
on union services, and compelled, to go it
alone. preached a very line discourse to a
large congregation from the following tex t:
For every creature ot God is good and nothing is
refused If it be received with thanksgivingI. Tin.,
These were all the regular church services
held in the city so far as the GLO BE man could
learn, though the Catholics held their custom
ary every day services.
Large congregations greeted the several pas
tors, and all went off piously, righteously and
of good report.
Another One of Us Gone.
For several days past something peculiar
has been noticed in the daily walk a nd con
versation of Frank Horan. As he expressed
it himself, he appeared to be "rattled." The
boys would come in to get measured for a
coat, and would at once proceed to meas
ure them for a pair of pantaloons. The
shears were constantly in his hand and the
tape about his neck, but he wandered about
in an absent-minded sort of a way, without
using either of those implements of his pro
fession. O late he has ceased to tell stories
and never laughed when the "nub" of the
story was reached by the other fellows.
The explanation was reached at the church
of the Immaculate Conception yesterday,
when Father McGodrick united in "the bonds
of matrimony Mr Frank Horan to Mi3s
Maggie Mahony. The ceremony was per
formed at 7 o'clock A. M., and the happy
couple left for Chicago at 1 0 A. ar., via the
& St railway.
The good wishes of hundreds of
the friends of the fair bride and popular
groom will follow them in the new start i
life they have made, and all will wish the
close to be as auspicious as the beginning.

yesterday noon in Casey's lake, near Layman's

in attempting to get a look at a duck which
had settled on the lake the ice broke, and being
frightened he lo^t his presence of mind, and
made no effort to take hold of a board which
was thrown him, and despite the efforts made
to save him he was drowned. Th body was
