8T. PAUL, MONDAY. DEC. 8, 1879.
WASHBURN'S effort to postpone the investi
gation of his bribery is natural. In the first
place, he wishes to postpone being retired in
disgrace from the House. Secondly, he de
sires to give Charley Johnson more time to
pat the swag where it will do the most good.
THE Cincinnati Gazette, edited by the
good Deacon Richard Smith, talks learnedly
about "The Water We Drink.*' We are
afraid that some subordinate, with a larger
experience than the deacon, has undertaken
to create a false impression of the personal
habits of his chief.
BOTH houses of Congress are indignant at
a report that has gained currency of the lar
ceny of a bible from one of the members.
The falsity of the report is manifest upon its
face. In the first place, Congressmen guard
their bibles too jealously to permit of their
being stolen, and in the next plaoe Congress
men don't have any bibles.
THE emperor of Russia did not receive
the congratulations of Mr. Hayes on his re
cent escape from assassination. Such com
pliments are only acceptable when conveyed
through the channels recognized by diplo
macy. We have no representative at the
Russian court ju*t now, and honce Mr.
Evarts' sentences were doomed to perpetual
PBOBABLT the most indefatigable office
hunter in the country is Scattering. He
appears to have been a candidate for eveiy
office in the gift of the people during the
past year, for the returns indicate his pres
ence in almost every State in the Union.
Scattering always seems to get some votes,
but never enough to elect him, and so he re
mains an anonyme.
THE editor of the Melrose Record i9 a
pretty independent Republican. He refused
bribes offered by Charley Johnson in behalf
of Washburn, and he opposed the St. Cloud
ring and supported Charley Gilman. The
result is that he has been removed from the
Melrose Record. It is creditable to him that
ha has offended the gang of pirates who
have wreaked this petty revenge.
ABOUT as cheeky a specimen of oratory as
we have of late seen is the remark creditod
to Jay Gould, that he had passed the time of
life when he made investments for the pur
pose of making money, and only placed his
money for purposos of entertainment and to
pass the time away. Men are not often
found who invest millions just for the fun of
the thing, and for thn reason Jay Gould
ought to be tenderly cherished.
THE Demoorats in the Senate have come
to the conclusion that they will retain but
four Republicans in their employ. These
four are the persons who served in the ar
my, who had been chosen by the party at
the extra session. AH the stay-at-homes,
for whose welfare the Republican Senators
were so solicitous, will be invited to walk
iixi plank, and their places will be given to
Democrats who fought for the Union. An
other evidence of the disloyalty of the Dem
IT is pretty nearly time cr the newspapers
to atop the sale of the Northern Pacifio and
St. Paul & Manitoba roads to Alox. Mitchell.
Mr. Mitchell is a pretty wealthy man, but as
neither of these roads Are for sale, .and if they
were Alexander's purse is too short, it would
be well to start some new rumor. It might
not be a bad idea to lot np on Mitchell
purchases and announce that Jay Gould has
bought or is about to buy the St. Paul &
Sioux City and St. Paul & Duluth roads in
order to give his Union Paoifio a lake port
of its own. Gould don't issue denials as
promptly as Mitchell, and such a story might
have quite a run.
THE DO-NOTHINO POLICY.
What shall be the policy of the future? is
a question that will absorb public attention
for the near future. The Republicans do
not know which way to turn, and the Demo
crats are in a like fix. The eve of a Presi
dential election is always a time at which
parties are reluctant to declare themselves,
but the present seems to be a season of ex
ceptional backwardness. To use a vulgar
phrase, "the one is afraid and the other
There is a good deal of talk in the news
papers about what the people want of Con
gress. It is our candid opinion that the
people want very little of that body, and the
lesa done the better will the people be
pleased. There is no popular demand for
any measure affecting the general welfare
that cannot be fully met without Congres
sional enaotment. Oar lawa are at present
adequate for the redress of all grievances.
They contemplate the proteotion of every
citizen in the exercise of his rights. If en
forced they will give to all American oiti
zens.all the privileges they may claim, what
ever they may be, provided they are based
on equity. What, then, is the necessity of
legislation? There are but few imperfec
tions in the statutes, and fewer still in the en
aotmentaof only temporary effect. We
have all the protection that is required
for the maintenance of the freedom of the
citizen, and everything in the past that could
be devised forhis prosperity. Mistakes have
no doubt been made. We could point to
many of thorn. Bat these mistakes are not
of the character that demands remedial leg
islation. If the laws were carefully exam
ined it would be found that there is an ade
quate remedy for all grievances, personal or
Congress has a duty to perform to the
general public That duty may be comprised
in a very few words. Let well enough
alone. If* is not necessary that legislation
should be had on the subject of the finances
it is not necessary that the tariff should be
revised at this time it is not necessary, above
all other things, that anything should be"
done to revive in the remotest degree the
animosities that were engendered between
the North and the South during the late con
flict. There is no occasion for any such
agitation. The Squthcrn people are desir
ous of a restoration of fraternity between
the sections. The only cause of their
estrangement %as been tho constant libels
that have been heaped upon them by tho
unscrupulous politicians of tho North, who
have made the bloody shirt their
stook in trade. The poople of that
section are as loyal to tho republic
to-day as are the poople of the North. They
would defend the honor of the government
as valiantly as would an equal number of
people at the North. Bat it is nothing more
than human nature to expect that, feeling
themselves maligned, they should cherish a
feeling of resentment towards thoso who un
costly accuse them.
The best policy that Congress can pursue
at the present session ia to do as little as pos
sible. General legislation is not needed, and
only measures of relief for speoial oases
should be considered. Every member should
bear in mind the trite bat truthful'saying of
Talleyrand, "The world iB governed too
much," and act accordingly. If he sees an
abuse of power or offioial position, he should,
before offering a bill for its remedy, consult
the laws already on oar statute books and
see if they are not adequate. Oar system of
government is by no means perfeot, but it
will be found on investigation that there is
little need for extra legislation at this session
of Congress. We would most heartily rec
ommend the adoption-of the do-nothing pol
icy except as to measures that call for action
as a means of sustaining and keeping in mo
tion the due functions of the government.
THE GOVERNMENT AND THE HE
The Chioago Tribute has recently pub
lished a series of articles which have been
intended to combat the doctrine of State
rights. The subject has boen worn thread
bare, and bat for the fact that a grave heresy
has crept into the Tribune editorials, wo
would not feel called upon to refer to them.
Those who have read the articles in question
cannot fail to have remarked that loyalty to
"the government" was esteemed by the
writer as the paramount duty of tho citizen.
The government" is always spoken of as
the center around which all citizens should
cluster, and to whiou the most ardent devo
tion is due.
Loyalty is one of the highest duties a man
owes to his country. But there is a great
distinction between loyalty to a government
and loyalty to an idea. Our system is an
idea. That idea is a republic. A republic
is a form of government, simply, where the
minority consents to be governed by the ma
jority. As long as this idea is maintained
loyalty to the government will be loyalty to
the republic. But when the issue is raised,
as it will be eventually, and sooner than'
most people anticipate, men will be obliged
to discriminate between fealty to the govern
ment and loyalty to the republic.
When that time arrives there
will be men who will de
nounce those who adhere to tho republic as
traitors to the state, while they themaelves
are the veriest traitors to the republic in
It is time that the distinction between the
government and the republic was drawn.
They are separate ideas. The government
may be a monarchy to-morrow and demand
the support of all the people. Yet if the
people choose to withhold their support,
would they be traitors? Not at all. When
a citizen of the United States swears alle
giance to the government, he swears to sup
port the republic and nothing else, and if
the government is transformed into a mon
archy, he is absolved from any allegiance he
may have assumed.
This is a suggestion. It may become an
issuo in tho future. It ia not improbable
that it will be a question of great moment
to many people early in tho next decade.
Army officers and offioers in the civil list
may be called upon to choose which they
will servo"the government" or the repub
lic If they are patriotio they will not hesi
tate, but oast the weight of their influence on
the side of a government of the people, for
the people and by the people.
THE ST. PAUL KINO.
How It Scoops the Greenhorn Republicans
from the Country.
We have read with a great deal of interest
an article in the Owatonna Journal of Nov.
21st, entitled, "The First Congressional
District." It is a complete and unanswerable
expose of the miserable sohemes of the St.
Paul clique of the Republican party, which
were so oraftily planned and carried out as
to defeat the nomination last year of any
man for governor from the First
district and to secure the re-nomination of
After twenty years of steady support to
the State ticket," gays the Journal, the Re
publicans of the First Congressional district
this year asked that the nominee for gover
nor on the Republican ticket be taken from
the first district. This request was denied
them, though such an honor, in the history
of the State, had never been granted them.
This reasonable request was scouted, and
the assertion made that the State was alivo
with enthusiasm for Governor Pillsbury.
Daring the canvass they were accused of
conspiracies, dark and deep, of disloyalty to
The Journal then shows by the official
figures of the election how popular Gov.
Pillsbury has been, and how Republicans in
the First district supported him. In 1877
Pillsbury had 57,071 votes, Banning 39,147,
or a majority of 17,924. In 1879 he re
ceived 57,471 votes and Rice 42,374, or ama
jority of 15,097. Pillsburv's majority this
year in the Third Congressional district was
only 2,927. In the Second district his ma
jority was but 268. In the First district, the
home of conspirators, as alleged by the
backers of Gov. Pillsbury at St. Paul, the
majority for Pillsbury was 11,922, the
largest majority any candidate ever received
in the district. In the vote of this year
compared with the vote of 1877, Pillsbury
lost in the Third district 1,421, and in the
Second district ho lost 2,857, while in the
First district, where the Republicans were
allowed to vote fer a governor providing he
hails from some point outside the district,
Pillsbury gained 4,828. Here the vote of
22,494 Republicans in the First district
saved the outside candidate from defeat.
This truthful expose should fill the leaders
of the St. Paul ring with shame and confu
sion. They have made it a rule to assist no
man from this district unless he will agree to
do a full service for the olique. Their motto,
"we serve those who serve us." has been too
faithfully carried out for the benefit of the
Republican party, and we heartily concur
with the Journalin his prediction, "that the
year is not far off when the Republican party
can and will, in convention assembled, nom
inate an active ticket without yielding a whit
to the dictations of any number of men who,
in their combinations, care more for person
al ends than a triumph of the principles
which the party was formed to protect."

The Northern Paoifio Railroad company
is rapidly emerging from those difficulties
which at one time threatened to put an en
tire stop to its operations. It has now 720
miles of completed road, exclusive of turn
outs and siding. It is expected that by the
summer of 1880 the eastern end will be com
pleted to the Yellowstone river. Work is
also being pushed to the Paoifio end. The
road was originally granted 47,000,000 acres
of land. But the company has only ac
quired by actual road construction 10,579,200
acres of this vast area, which is mainly in
Minnesota, Dakota, Oregon and Washing
ton Territory. The entire length of the
road, from Duluth, at the western end of
Lake Superior, to Puget's Sound, on the
Paoifio, is 1,775 miles. It is to be observed
that those journals'which denounced the en
terprise in the dark days of the panic of '73
are now among the loudest in their fulsome
pseans of praise of this great under
TUB TILDEN FKOGRAMME.
The Presidential Mania Still Potent With
the "Old Han"Interview With a If ear
FriendNo Hendricks in Ilia
I New YorkHerald.l
Mr. Tilden persistently denies himself to
interviewing callers, or, if he is at home to
them, declines to talk unless it be distinctly
understood that he is not to be reported.
Yesterday the sedate Hibornian, who has
learned to insist that "Mr. Tilden is not at
home," with imperturbability of facial
muscle, and the venerable dame, who is fast
approaching a plane of stoical indifference
to fact, were kept tolerably busy in answer
ing calls to the front door, where all sorts
and conditions of men and women and mis
erable sinners congregated, rang, waited and
departed disbelieving. Bat as the potent
spirits of a darker world aro supposed to
have each his "familiar," so the "great men"
of the mundane sphere have each his inti
mate. Mr. Tilden is fortunate
in being able to keep out
of the way of reporters, but his friends are
quite willing to talk, although they naturally
dread to be quoted. One of his "ardent
supporters" was found in the Cafe Delmoni
co last evening, chatting with a knot of
brokers. In response to a question, he said:
"The Herald had Tiden down fine this
morning. I can't blame the old man for his
mania, although it is extreme folly for him
to think that a great partv is willing to stul
tify itself for him."
"Do you believe Mr. Tilden is ready to
part with Mr. Hendricks?"
TILDEN AND DENDHIOKS.
"Well, I don't see how he can help him
self, as Hondricks has made no bones of
drawing off from Tilden. I believe Hen
dricks is a greatly disappointed manfirst,
because he wanted the first plaoo on tho
ticket himself second, because he was count
ed out, and third, because Indiana isn't
strong enough to force him on the next
"Why isn't it strong enough?"
"Because Indiana is all upset. The De
mocracy are not a unit there, and you'll find
no sane man ready to risk his duoats on a
Democratic victory there at the next election.
This fact alone would more than reconcile
Mr. Tilden to the disaffection of Governor
Hendricks, but in addition to that comes the
contemptuous way in which Hendricks speaks
of the old manand that's something which
Tilden never forgives unless he is to gain
something by it."
"If Mr. Tilden fails to get the nomination,
would he support Hendricks in case he was
"There's no use in discussing that. Hen
dricks has no more chance than John T. Hoff

"Not to politicians. But, to be civil, I will

man to publicly oppose a regular nominee

TILDEN AS A CANDIDATE.
"Do Mr. Tilden's friends regard him as a
candidate for nomination?'*
"Beyond all question."
"Do they consider him strong?"
"Now, you see how absurd it would have
been if I had permitted you to use my name.
I have no objeotion to say that circumstances
have recently occurred that weaken Tilden
as a candidate."
"WelJ, that confounded income tax suit,
though probably explainable to his friends,
is a damper in the country districts. The
Republican press will harp and harp on it
until all the old farmers who did pay will be
lieve that Tilden deliberately cheated tho
government. I really believe that that ri
diculous claim will do Mr. Tilden infinite
"How about the ciphers?"
"Oh, I don't attach, nor does he, any great
significance to them. In any event it's the
pot calling the kettle black, and a good
stump speaker could explain them readily."
"How about his dealings with Cyrus W.
"As a matter of fact with people who
know Field, Tilden stands as well as ever.but
the bother of it is that this everlasting dis
cussion is producing an impression that
Tilden is crafty, tricky and disingenuous in
dealing. Now you can readily understand
that a vaguo impression of deoeitfulness and
unreliability in business matters is jast as
bad for a man in his business as actual dis
honesty. We have all regretted times with
out numbe*. the unfortunate position Mr.
Tiiden is forced into, but it is difficult to
see who could avoid it. The cipher business
was party work, the income tax row-de-dow
can bo traced directly to the absurd law that
compelled the assessor to make the assess
ment, and the controversey with Mr. Field
grew out of a business transaction to which,
strange to say, there were two sides."
"Well, then, in view of all that yoa have
said, do you consider Mr. Tilden strong as a
"Who can be stronger?"'
"Is that an answer?"
TILDEN PROBABLY NOT A CANDIDATE.
"Well, to tell you the inside of it all, I
have reason to believe that Mr. Tilden's
name will not be offered to the convention
unless it be for the purpose of withdrawal,
garlanded by complimentary and sympathet
"If you believe that why not say outright
that Mr. Tilden's plan is to work for an
"Because I also think the old man's mania
is still strong within him. It is a delicate
matter to tell him how the people feel
for him, and he doesn't read the
signs of the times as readily as he used
to. No, I think he will do pretty
much as the Herald of to-day suggests. He
will work hard, pull wires deftly, correspond
voluminously, and in ample time order his
toga of retirement, being convinced that the
only thing for him to do is to step down and
out. But he will do whatever ho does with
a purpose. If he can not get the prize him
self he will make a determined effort to get
it for a friend. No Hendricks, no Thur
man, no Bayard for him. Yonr correspond
ent certainly hit the right nail on the head
when he announced that in the Herald."
"But surely Mr. Tilden will not deny that
he was in favor of the electoral commis-
"Won't he? Well, perhaps not. But he
certainly will make it a rough road for any
one to travel who did favor it. And, unless
the old man has lost his grip, not one of
those statesmen will ever be advanced a sin
gle step politically."
"You evidently think that Mr. Tilden will
be in position to name the candidate?"
"Yes or, rather, New York will name
"Church?" "It is premature to go into that. All I
care to say now is that Mr. Tilden's friends
will ondorse him as long as he asks it, and
it would have to be a very bad nomination

Marie Twain and Dr. Holmes.
Even Mark Twain, whose individuality
was supposed to be decidedly marked, is a
plagarist. He admits it. He even boasts it.
At the breakfast given to Dr. Oliver Wendell
Holmes, Twain made an open confession:
"When my first book was new a friend of
mine said: 'The dedication is very neat.'
Yes, I said, I thought it was. My friend
said: 'I always admired it, even before I
saw it in the "Innocents Abroad.'" I
naturally said, 'What do you mean? Where
did you ever see it before?' 'Well, I saw it
first some years ago, as Mr. Holmes' dedioa
ti to his "Songs in Many Keys.'" Of
course my first impulse was to prepare this
man's remains for burial, but upon reflection
I said I would reprieve him for a mo
ment or two, and give him a chance to prove
his assertion if he could. We stepped into a
book-store, and he did prove it. I had jally
stolen that dedication almost word for word.
I could not imagine how this curious thing
had happened. For I knew ono thing for a
dead certainty: That a certain amount of
pride always goes along with a teaspoonful
of brains, and that this pride prevents a man
frjm deliberately stealing other people's
ideas. That is what a teaspoonful of brains
will do for a man and admirers had often
told me I had nearly a basketful, though they
were rather reserved as to the size of the
basket." Twain gave an explanation, the
usual one. He had read Holmes' poems
until he was certainly satisfied with their
flavor, and he unconsciously stole the dedi
cation. Perhaps," adds Twain, I uncon
sciously stole the rest of the volume, too, for
many people-have told me that my book was
pretty poetical, in one way or another." The
offender wrote to Dr. Holmes explaining Lis
feat of grand larceny, and received a much
kinder reply than Dr. Parker gave Dr. Lori
mer. I afterward called on him," Mark
adds, and told him to make perfectly free
with any ideas of mine that struck him as
being good protoplasm for poetry. He could
see from that that there was'nt anything
mean about me so we got along right from
JVof for Grant.

CHICAGO, Deo. C.The Chicago Commer
cial club, an organization composed of the
principal business men of Chicago, gave
their annual banquet this evening at the
Grand Pacific hotel. It was an unusually
noteworthy affair, on account of the large
number of distinguished guests from
abroad. Among the number were Gen.
Grant, Hon. John B. Long, Gov. and Hon.
Alex. H. Rice, ex-governors of Massachu
setts John W. Chandler, president Boston
board of trade and president of Boston
Commercial club F. W. Lincoln, ex-mayor
of Boston, and eleven other gentlemen iden
tified with the commercial club, and
with the commercial interests of Boston.

president of the Omaha chamber of com
merce H. D. Stannard, ex-Governor of
Missouri Alfred Russell/ Detroit Robt.
Donohue, Burlington, Iowa Hon. J. F. Wil
son, Iowa, and many others. Gen. Sheri
dan, Judge Drummond, E. B. Washburn, T.
B. Blackstone and Col. Fred Grant, from
Chioago, were among the guests. The din
ner began about 5 o'clock and was most
superb in every appointment and fea
President J. W. Doane was flanked on either
side by Gen. Grant and Gov. Long. He pre
sided with dignity and his iutroductions of
speakers were made in felicitous remarks of
good fellowship which gave a spirit of warmth
and friendliness to the proceedings, which was
in perfect accord with the occasion.
President Doane in opening the speech mak-
iu(r|welcomed|the guests from all sections of the
Uuion, and especially Gen. Grant, now return
ed to his native State after a long period of
travel which had been one continued ovation.
He spoke particularly also of the Boston dele
gation as representative of the great commer
cial centre around which this great continent
the globe itself revolves. He proposed the
health of Gen. Grant as one of tho members of
that Galena ring whose component parts wer
of such sterling material.
Gen. Grant being called for said: "The
allusions of your president to myself have been
gratifying on the whole, and the assurance
that he has held out to me that if I would
settle among you that I can receive the unani
mous vote of the club for its presidency is the
most tempting offer that I have had, yet I
have read of numerous places
having been cut out for me before, but
this is the only one that I have had any assur
ance of and in this ease, even, I am somewhat
embarrassed. My understanding before com
ing here this evening was that to become a
member of this club a man had to represent
some industry or othersome one of the great
industries which have made our country so
great and prosperousand I am at a loss to
know where I come in. I do see here one or
two of the ring that has been refeered tothat
Galena ringwho I believe have the honor of
being enrolled as members of thiB club. How
they got in is equally puzzling to me. Gentle
men, 1 thank you heartily for the honor you
have done me. not only in this kind offer you
have made to locate me in this honorable and
responsible place, bat for the way you have re
ceived me on the whole. (Vociferous and pro
President Candler, of Boston, recalled the
previous meetings of those two prominent
commercial lodges and alluded to the magni
tude of the interests they represent and to the
deist of gratitude which they owe to Gen.
Grant for his protection to those interests.
Mayor Rice, of Boston, eulogized Gen. Grant
as the man who had been honored here to the
full extent of honor which our people can be
stow upon a citizen. As the manwho had gone
abroad among all peoples, receiving everywhere
marks of friendship and confidence, which he
modestly attributes to the respect in which his
country was held abroad, and who had re
turned to receive the gratitude of bis country
men and to live among them in the place
in which he had taken a prominent
and leading part in securing for them, he dej
clared that the bond of the Union would and
should be more closely cemented that the
States and cities should say and fee! what is
yours is ours, and What is ours is yours. It is
the prosperity of our common country of which
we should boast, and that lies beyond the limits
of imagination. The country will never want
for a market, because its production will
scarcely keep pace with the increasing popula
tion. We are stretching out our arms all over
the globe, annihilating space by steam and tel
egraph, and in time the people will becomo
cemented, there will no longer be one exclusive
market, but that nation of the world which has
the greatest skill and enterprise will draw best.
He predicted that in 1900 our population will
be greater than that of Great Britain and
France combined was seventy years ago. There
is no limit to American enterprise. There
is no room or cause for jeal
ousies, and we may throw them
away and begin the straggle to carry forward
American influence to a point never before
reached by any nation. The greatness of a
nation does not, after all, consist in its re
sources and its industries, but in its men, their
character and aspirations. We shall rise above
all other lands by superiority of national
character and by that alone. (Applause.)
The first toast was:
Oar inland and foreign commerce. May oar
inland States develop and become equal in
strength to their seaboard sisters.
Gov. Bagley, of Michigan, responded in a
speech bristling with humor, and which was
interrupted by constant outbursts of applause
and merriment. He said: Mr. President and
Gentlemen:I propose to speak as a business
man, and as I believe yon are all business men,
or at least I did believe so when I came here,
but I have made no my mind some of you
are speechmakers, but lam not. The last
speech I made was across the lake at St. Joe.
It was a political speech. I undertood to per
suade the people of St. Joe that there was but
one party in the land and that it could be
trusted, and that was the Republican patty,
because I happened to be a Republican myself,
and the audience began slowly to disappear.
They kept going as I kept going on talking,
and finally two men who sat on the front seat
got up to go, the last two in the house. I got
down from the platform and took one of them
by the collar and said to hi in: "I shall not let
you go until you promise me you will vote the
Republican ticket." I wanted to make a con
vert, and he said he would promise me any
thing if I only would let him go, and he went.
I said to him, "How about this other man that
sits with you." "Well," said he, "that don't
make any difference, he is deaf and dumb and
couldn't hoar." So you see I don't make
speeches in that sense, bu I can't tell how glad
I am as a business man to meet
witn the business men of Chicago on this very
auspicious occasion. I am glad to meet our
old Michigan man, Gen. Grant. (Laughter.)
I find wherever I go there are Michigan men.
I remember the general very well, when he was
stationed in Detroit, in the Fourth infantry. I
haven't any doubt he learned a great deal of
the art of war in that city. So I see in Chi
cago, whenever I come here, in this inter-State
commerce that you talk of, that you come over
into Michigan and gobble oat of it all our lum
ber kings and principal men from the west side
of the State, and bring them over here to Chi
cago and boast of them. Now, we boast in
Michigan a great deal we are very proud of it
as a State. We feel that it has enlightened and
civilized the States that adjoin, and we feel as
we look over the census as though we have
even done a great deal for New England.
There are 330,000 adults in the State of Michi
gan wbo were born in New England or the
State of New York. Of those that were born
in New York many were originally from New
England. The homes that we have made for
the most wonderful alacrity when they get
money enough to travel, and we have taken
them out to Michigan and have taken the cor
ners off them, and rounded them up and made
them smooth and rotund, jolly and good na
tural. We have taken that east wind look out
of their faces, and so we call Michigan the
Massachusetts of the West la all oar trade
with New England they get the advantage of
us. We send them down our succulent corn and
they send us back their salt codfish.
We send them pine boards and
potatoes and they send us professors and
preachers. We send them wheat and wood,
and they send us back-wooden hams, and yet
after all we are very proud of New England.
We are proud that we have done so much for
her. We are proud that we are on the line of
travel, and we have interstate commerce be
tween Massachusetts and Michigan, that will
eventually bring them to us and ccake t'fetn
good citizens of (beState and Empire, which
after 1880 you are going to rind located on :h he
lakes right near where we stand. And yet,
throwing all jesting aside, we as Americans
want to get into a little broader style than
simply our States. We want to find and realize
and feel that humanity is the same on
both sides the fence. That it is the sa:ne on
both sides of any imaginary Une. That the
prosperity of one is the prosperity of all. Wo
want no more of State pride that only reaches
to the line of the State. We want a pride and
an ambition and a business brain that will take
us all oyer onr own line and show ns that the
prosperity of one State is the prosperity of all.
That growth of one is growth of all. I stood
on the steps of a factory in New England last
summer as the hands went out to dinuer, and
they poured out and poured out and pound
oat, and finally, after they had all gone,
the superintendent said to me, "How many
people do you think arc leaving here to-daj J"
I said I can't imagine, but it looks like a
bridge. He asked the foreman, who said there
were on the pay rolls 5,070 people, h had
just gone ont the gate, and I thought what was
my doty as a citizen living away ont in the
West,_ where there are no factories, ani where
we raise grain and corn and wheat. I said
my daty js, after all, to remember these 5,070
people, to feel that they are as much my
neighbors, that their interest is BO much mine,
that in my public and private action I
should do as much for these 5,000 people as
I would for 5,000 people living my own btate.
That ought to be the spirit of all of us, North,
South, East and West, from the Atlantic to the
Pacific, that we are one people and one nation,
with one common weal, and in which we should
all be interested. That is the platform of the
future American citizen. Keep np our 8"atcs.
It is well enongh to have our little prida in our
State in that sense, if we don't carry it too far.
I like a man of that kind. I like these folks
who come up here from New England and
tell us what a wonderful people they are, and
how high Bunker hill is, and how salt their cod
fish are. They make better American citizens,
perhaps, for that. A man, I think, who loves
the place where he was born makes a better
citizen in some other land than if he did not
love that place. I think a man who loves one
woman devotedly will love all women moder
ately, and the man wbo loves his neigh' or his
a heart for mankind that is all right, bnt v.e
do not want to carry this notion of State or
pride of State rights one inch beyond the line
of our daty as American citizens in the greater
and widersense. Keep up our States ja=t as
we have and name our cbiidren
with the last name of our States
as Gen. Grant's father named him U. S. Michi
gan, U. S. Massachusetts, U. S. Mississippi,
and so on throueh, and the time is coming, asd
it is not far distant, when that will be the
mark =md the distinguishing brand of every
man that loves the land he lives in.
MASSACHUSETTS TAKES A HAND IN.
To the toast "God Save the Commonwealth
of Massachusetts," Governor Lang responded.
He said the nanus of Winthrop and Adams
and others of his State, would live not only in
Massachusetts, but in Illinois or Michigan and
all over the eountry. They were not the prop
erty of one man or of one State, but of all.
Whatever is creditable in literature, art, science
and commerce in Massachusetts, the glory be
longs toother States in equal proportion. No
one would narrow to State lines the noble
names of Lincoln, Grant, Sumner and Adams.
They rose above locality, they were the nation's
names. He mentioned that Chicago had grown
from the flames like a city of a fairy tale, and
that these Boston gentlemen whe came to see it
were impressed with the sight and with the
idea that nothing could retard the city's pro
gress. _He made a complimentary alluBi-ra 10

Testimony for the DefenseIt Don't IItip
Him Very Greatly
FOET MEADE, Dakota, Dec 4.The Reno
court convened at 10 o'clock.
Mrs. Fanshaw testified: "Rdno and others
were at my house at sapper Aug. 3 In my
opinion, Reno was disgustingly drunk while at
the sapper table. When he firet came in I did
not notice his being under the influence of
liquor. He rode out with me that eveniug.and
was sober at that time."
The prosecution here rested.
Mrs. Fanshaw, for ti defense, testified:
"On the day of the fire, the burning cf Fan
shaw's store, Reno was very kind to me did
not insult by speech or action. We sat on
the porch till after 10 o'clock. It was quito
a cold night."'
Maj. Dr. Irwin testified that goin,* from a
cold plaoe to a warm room and eating heart
ily might produce the effect manifested by
Reno on the night of the supper at Fan
Maj. Reno sworn: Wras
playing pool with
Nichol3on and others Oct. 25, in the club
room. Had a wager on the game, which I
won. Previous to this I gave Nicholson
checks in settlement of our difference. He
said he considered the pool matter settled
that night he disputed it. He said: "I
will settle with you in any way you want,'"
couching the remark in a grossly insulting
manner, and said ho could knock the stuf
fing out of me. He repeated it several times.
His remark drove me beyond the limits of
patience, and in a fit of passion I struck
him with a cue. We came together. He,
being the stronger, threw mo on the floor.
Bystanders separated us. I was perfectly
sober put on my coat, and left the club
room with Dr. Bell, whom I told I was very
sorry for what I had done. Reno submitted
a copy of a letter to Mrs. Sturgis, apologiz
ing for his conduct on the night of Nov. 10.
As he was under close ar. est he could not
send the letter to her until Nov. 12. Tho
substance of Reno's letter was:
I write this that you may appreciate the mo
tive that actuated me to look through your
window. It has been my habit, sinse arrest, to
walk out at night in the path in front of the
officers' quarters, in favorable weather, for ex
ercise. On the night in question 1 saw your
daughter in complete toilet, through the win
dow. It was such a picture I thought there
could be no harm in looking upon it, and in
my loneliness and thoughts of the past I felt
impotent to resist temptation. When you
started in alarm, without reflection, I went
to my quarters, instead of coming 10
your house, as I should have done. When the
adjutant came to my quarters that evening I
could not tell him all that 1 have told you.
'Twould bo a matter of deepest regret to my
dying day shonld Ella and you think me capa
ble of being a spy, or doing anything with a
mean motive. This is the truth as I expect to
answer for it before God. I sincerely ak your
pardon for all that docs not seem to yon as in
nocent. I assure you that, if n.it guiitlcss, iny
fault was in judgment, not heart.
Reno said the relation between Sturgis'
family and himself had been friendly in
times past, and he had the greatest respect
and admiration for Ella. Seeing her, as
Lieut. Spillman and others did, he turned
from the path and stopped in front of the
Bide window to look at her. He did
not approach the window stealthily
or 8uspicously walked there as he
would in this court room. In the glare of
the window, if his face expressed any senti
ment but admiration, it greatly belied his
feelings. Had no intention of alarming
her would suffer tho amputation of bis
right hand from the arm before ha would
harm a hair of her head.
