BX. PAUL, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1, 1883.
Thos. B. Connebt, for many years the
managing editor of the New York Herald,
has just returned from an European vaca
tion, but does not return immediately to
his position as he says he "wants to get
acquainted with his family."
Just think of what the telegraphing sys-
torn of the world amounts to and then
realize that in 1844 Prof. Morse offered to
sell out the whole telegraphic patents and
business and his line from Washington to
New York to the government for $100,000.
Senatob Dawes, with his Indian com
mission (he has written back east), ex
pects to join the president's party at Yel
lowstone park. Chester will come pretty
near being able to hold a respectable sized
Republican congress within the spray of
the geysers after all.
The people of Japan are more fortun
ate in getting returns from their census
statistics than are the people of the United
States. The census of Japan was taken
during January 1883, and the report is al
ready published complete. From these
statistics it is learned that the Empire of
Japan contains 18,598,998 males and 18,
--101,112 females, a total population of
Massachusetts has some peculiarities of
population that do not attach to any other
state. More than 70 per cent, of the peo
ple have their homes in towns of more
than ten thousand inhabitants and up
wards. The state has a larger number of
cities of twenty thousand population or
more than any other state. Notwithstand
ing this grouping of population, the per
cent, of church goers and church members
is not up to the general average of sections
where the people are more widely dis
persed . .
Some discussion has ocourred as to the
popularity of Mr. McDonald and Mr.
Hf-t.vlricks in their own state, Indiana. One
vie * taken is extremely favorable to Mr.
H" •<Jricks, while]another earnestly declares
tL.i Mr. McDonald is the favorite son.
The curiosity of the Cincinnati Enquirer
■was aroused by the dissimilarity of these
views, and to ascertain the real tenor of the
public mind circulars were addressed ask
ing which was considered the most availa
ble oian, Mr. McDonald or Mr. Hendricks;
411 replies were received. Of these 391
we/- 'avorable to the "old ticket," or to
Mr. Iliiidricks himself, for the first place.

some inscrutable purpose says that as Wis

When President Arthur was about to set
out on his Yellowstone park expedition he
made his plans to start on Sunday. Sec
retary Folger, who very well understood
what sort of a frolic it was to be, urgently
requested the President to change his time
of starting, and not set out on Sunday, lie
pointed out the effect such a proceeding
would have on the minds of the Christian
people of the country. The President
thought it over for a day or two and finally
decided to start at four o'clock Monday
morning. Ex-President Grant, who is a
devout Methodist, is not a Sunday traveler,
neither does he go fishing on the Sabbath
day. A few days since his friend General
Porter, who is having a vacation, telegraph
ed him from the Catskill mountains that a
director's car was at his service for a trip
to Long Branch on Sunday. Gen. Grant
declined the proffer, and at the same time,
so that invitations need not be sent him
for Sunday pleasurh»gs, said: "I always
tried not to travel on Sunday when I held
office, and there does not seem to be any
reasonable excuse for it now." In follow
ing the example of his predeoessor, Gen.
Grant, President Arthur would stand bet
ter in the esteem of Christian people, even
though they knew he had no conscience in
The denial made by Mr. Driscoll that
the Pioneer Press had suppressed the an
nual report of Geu. Sanborn, president of
the St. Paul chamber of commerce, in a
part of its edition, seems to have been a
rash performance. In addition to the
information already given, it can
now be stated that Gen. Sanborn was
supplied with copies of the St. Paul and
Minneapolis edition of the P. P. of the
date in question, and that over a month
ago he exhibited the copies at the chamber
and numerous members can testify to their
own knowledge to the omission and to the
falsity of Mr. Driscoll's denial. The
Globe has obtained a copy of the
issue of the Pioneer Press of June 12
as circulated in St. Paul which contains the
report of Gen. Sanborn, and a oopy of the
same date as circulated in Minneapolis
wherein the report is entirely omitted.
These papers are now on exhibition at the
Globe counting room, and any one curious
to see how a double-headed newspaper
is run can inspect them.
It is quite probable that the
report of Gen. Sanborn appeared in noth
ing but the St. Paul edition and was ex
cluded from the mails as well as from
Minneapolis. That it was excluded from
Minneapolis is susceptible of proof to any
one choosing to call and inspect the papers
at this office.

[Special Teletrram to the Globe.]
WASHiNGioN,Aug. 14.— An adverse opin
ion was rendered against the claim of J. P.
Brown, of Portland, Oregon, for $7,500,
one-half of a fine of $15,000 imposed on
the owner of a vessel at that port for car
rying passengers in excess of the number
allowed by her license. Brown claimed
the money as an informer, and his case
was argued before the treasury department
by Ex-Senator Mitchell, of Oregon. The
solicitor to whom the question was referr
ed, holds that Brown should have made
his claim in the court where
the ease was tried, and where
the judge could have determined
upon his rights under the law, but the
court having covered the fine into the
United States treasury, Brown has no legal
method of reaching it, nor has the secre
tary any authority to pay any part of it
out again. The opinion of the solicitor is
not final, however, until approved by the
secretary, and an effort will now be made to
get Judge French, who is acting in Secretary
Folger's absence, to grant another hearing.

London, Aug . 14. — There was a long de
bate characterized with much obstruction
on the part of Irish members in the com
mons last night on the vote for legal ex
pense incurred in the recent criminal pros
ecutions in Ireland. Harrington alleged
that Myles Joyce, who was found guilty
and executed as participating in the mur
der of the Joyce family in County Galway,
Sept. 18, 1882, was judicially murdered
despite the fact that evidence of his inno
cence'was accessible to Earl Spencer, Lord
Lieutenant of Ireland. Callan, member
for Louth, declared the government could
have) brought the Pcenix park murderers
to justice without the evidence of James
Carey, but that Sir William Harcourt,
home secretary, contrived to have Carey
accepted as informer for the purpose of
endeavoring to connect some of the Irish
members of parliament with the murder.
Parnell repeated the charges of jury pack
ing in Ireland, of the reckless desire of
the government to procure convictions
for the purpose of striking terror among
the people of the country by the tyranni
cal use of the power of secret inquiry.
Porter, attorney general for Ireland,
replying to the remarks of the Irish mem
bers said as long as attrocities in Ireland
went unpunished, means of inquiry allow
ed by law, would be used without "shrink
During the debate in the commons
last evening Harrington charged Lord
Spencer with having Miles Joyce hanged,
when he knew the condemned man was in
nocent. He was called to order for this
remark, and then modified the statement,
as mentioned in the foregoing dispatch.
Healy, member for Monighan, was also
called to order during the debate for using
violent language against officers of the
crown. Parnell, as a protest against the
conduct of the government, moved that
the amount of money provided for the ap
propriation be reduced, but his motion was
defeated by 24 yeas to 93 nays.

shot second; D. Hardin's Wellington
third. There were four starters, including
J. R. Keene's Boleroc. Galvanic won by a
neck. Wellington was a bad third. The
last betting was 11 to 8 on Galvanic, 6 to 1
against Snapshot, 10 to 1 against Welling

measures of precaution.
Madbid, Aug. 14. — King Alfonso to-day
received the monarchist senators and dep
uties and marquises of Havana. Sardval
in an address lamented the revolutionary
outbreak and protested his devotion to the
throne. The kiog in reply thanked the
visitors and declared that what had occur
red would not alter his resolve to continue
to identify the throne with the aspirations
of the people, with whom he would always
remain united through good or adverse
fortune. All the provinces are tranquil.
The ministerial paper, Ei Correo, denies
that Gen. Martinez Campos, minister of

but the opposition papers continue to cir

inhabitants of Ses de Urgel on the occa
sion of the rising at that place is published.
It declares those persons who oppose the
republic will be punished with death, and
decrees a separation of church and state,
permission of liberty of conscience, the
suppression of actroi, and the abolition of
the courts of justice in favor of a revolu- f
tionary municipality, which will admin

Rather doleful news comes from Grant
and adjoining towns respecting the pres
ent crops. Wheat, it is said, will not
average twelve bushels per acre. The
grain, it is thought, will not grade more
than No. 2. Oats are set at thirty bushels
an acre. Corn is small and backward.
The partial failure of the wheat crop is
ascribed to the ravages of the chintz bug
in the earlier part of the season.
Mr. J. C. Nethaway has reason to feel
somewhat elated over his recent victory in

he was retained was his first appearance

of the municipal court of this city. A
suit was brought by Dr. Watier against the
Omaha Railroad company to recover dam
ages for a horse killed on the company's
road last October. The doctor was now
suited by the ruling of Judge Lee that the
animal was running at large when killed.

THE MEX RETURXIXG TO WORK IX
The Inquiry Into the Strike Before the
Senate Committee on Education and
Labor — Interesting Testimony Given
Yesterday— Wire Cutting on an Extensive
THE LABOB INQUIBY.
New Yobk, Aug. 14.— The United States
senatorial sub-committee on labor and
education reassembled to-day. John F.
McClellan, member of the Brotherhood of
Telegraph Operators, resumed his testi
mony. He said the estimated cost of a
telegraph line 1,500 miles long would be
$725,965. Telegraph operators were gen
erally yonng men and lived in boarding
houses. They generally came from the
better classes of society. The morale of
the operators as a class had greatly im
proved within the last ten years, and this
was one result of the organization which
had been effected. Most of them were
single, but some were married men. Wit
ness thought $50 a month was a reasonable
estimate for food and lodg
ing for a single man.
Only one in one hundred ever saved any
money. The highest paid operators did
not receive enough to enable them to lay
by anything for support in old age. In
1870 the Western Union company required
every man coming into its employ to take
an oath he would never connect himself
with a trade or labor organization . This
was called the iron clad oath, and was ad
ministered to every person who took part
in the strike of 1870. After the existence
of the telegraph brotherhood was made
known — recently, railroad superintendents
issued a circular which was sent to every
employe of the company forbidding him to
connect himself with the organization
under penalty of dismissal. Day opera
tors worked from 8 a. m. to 8 at night, and
had but two or three hours to devote to
amusements. Night operators had more
time at their disposal. No
such thing as a vacation was
known in the telegraph business.
Thomas O'Reilly, telegraph operator of
twelve years' experience, has charge of the
Wheatstone instruments in the Western
Union office. He had been an operator in
that system for ten years in Scotland.
He came here about a year ago. The
Western Union company gave them $20 a
month as a retaining fee until the Wheat
stone instruments should arrive. Prom
ises were repeatedly made that the Wheat
stone men should receive as much as first
class Morse operators. On the 28th of
last February it was announced that
the Wheatstone system would begin
operation and the Wheatstone operators
were told that their salaries would be $50
per month. The operators on the other
side were better paid. They had three
weeks vacation each year, with a salary,
and during sickness received half pay.
After being a certain number of years in
service, and their record being good, the
operators receive a pension for life, and
sometimes at full pay, when he becomes

H. W. Orr, of Philadelphia, a member
of the Brotherhood of Telegraphers, said
the salaries paid the operators in Phila
delphia ranged from $30 to $80 per
month. One of the objects of the brother
hood was to establish a Telegraph compa
ny on the co-operative system, by which
the operators should own their own lines
and thus be enabled to protect themselves
against their employers. Evidence of hos
tility of the Western Union company to
wards its employes, was a systematic poli
cy of reducing the salaries of its operators,
during the past ten years. Witness also
testified to the practice of the Western
Union company in blacklisting men found

the strike the membership of the brother
hood had nearly doubled and now num
bered about 20,000. One-fifth of the oper
ators in the country were women, and
about 500 of these had joined the strikers.
There were very few first-class operators
among them, as their strength was not
equal to the work required to attain such
CUTTING THE WIBES.
New Yobk, Aug. 14.— The strike of the
telegraphers presents no new features to
day. Somerville, of the Western Union
company, said 127 wires of the gold and
stock telegraph which supply most of the
circuits to brokers' offices down town and
are carried through Church and Rector
streets in seven cables suspended nnder
the elevated railroad girders were all cut
last night and in such a way that the wires
cannot be connected again at the points
where severed. Temporary repairs have
been made with other lines, and the com
pany hopes to be able to repair the bal
ance to day. A dispatch received by the
companj to-day states that New Orleans
telegraphers were weakening and that two
strikers had returned to their keys. In
Meridian, Mis 3., the Western Union wires
were cut in Harlem and Manhattanville to
the number of a dozen or more. A few
wires were cut near Newark and others
near Fleetwood. A rigger for the Western
Union company was assaulted by two of
the striking line men to-day when he was
leaving the company's building. The of
fenders were arrested and taken to court,
where they were held for examination. So
far as could be learned up to noon to-day
none of the wire cutters were arrested.
HOLDING THE CITY LIABLE.
New Yobk Aug. 14.— The Western Un
ion Telegraph company has sent letter to
Mayor Edson, setting forth the losses sus
tained by them by the cutting of their
wires and notifying him that they will
bring a suit against the city for the re
covery of damages. The mayor has con
sulted with the superintendent of police
as to measures to prevent the further cut
ting of the wires. The superintendent in
formed the mayor that special instructions
were given the captains of the several pre
cincts of the city and no effort would be
? pared to detect and arrest all guilty of
tampering with the wires.
George Baldwin, a striking Western Un
ion lineman, was arrested, charged
with cutting the telegraph wires. Lineman
Ferris, of the Western Union company
testified that Baldwin was cutting wires on
thejroof of a building on Liberty and Wil
liams streets. The wires there are attach
ed to an upright fastened to a chimney.
The accused said that the fixture is his
property and he was merely removing it.
He claimed he bought that and a number
of similar fixtures in 1882 from Charles
rwin, who was then superintendent of the
Western" Union company. His examina
tion was adjourned till to-morrow.
GOV. BUTLEB ON THE SITUATION.
Boston, Aug. 14. — A thousand persons at
tended a mass meeting at Tremont temple
to-night in sympathy with the striking
telegraphers. Addresses were made by-
John K. Tatbox, Charles H. Litchman and
Congressman Collins. Letters of regret
[ re received from Wendell Phillips,
ajor Palmer, Henry Cabot Lodge, ex-
Collector Simmons and Gov. Butler. The
governor explained that his sense of public
duty prevented his presence. "The tele
graph operators," he wrote, "are
engaged in a conflict with
the Western Unioa company upon
matters of the deepest interest to both.
The length of its continuance shows the
bitterness which may be engendered, which
may lead into a collision, in which official
action on my part may be required as a
conservator of the peace and executor of
the laws . In that view, it seems to me
manifestly improper, as chief magistrate,
that I should appear, unofficially, taking
part with either contestants.
FILE A DEMUBBEK.
Philadelphia, Aug. 14. — Two 'more
striking telegraph operators returned to
work to-night. The Western Union Tele
graph company filed in the United States
court, in this city, its demurrer to the suit
brought by the commonwealth of Penn
sylvania for over-reaching its legal rights
in consolidating with the different com
panies and monopolizing the business of
telegraphy in this state. The demurrer
was prepared by the counsel for the com
pany, attorney general of the United
States, Brewster, being one of the number.

The day has been very cloudy, with ap
pearance of ram, and has been quite cold,
so much so that it is generally supposed it
will not rain but snow. Rain now would
injure the crop some, as much is ready for
harvest, and many farmers have already
begun cutting wheat and oats. Barley is
mostly cut, and some are threshing. The
yield is pronounced excellent. It is
thought best to cut wheat this season be
fore it gets too ripe, as the heads are so
well filled, and the kernels are so plump
that it will otherwise shell badly.
This is the best crop Dakota
has produced in some time,
