Wednesday, September 28, 1887.
The daily papers are carrying on a
controversy as to whether or'not Mrs.
Cleveland snubbed Gov. and Mrs. For
aker at the reception tendered to Pres
ident and Mrs. Cleveland at Philadel
phia during the session of the Constitu
tional Convention held last week. If
Mrs. Cleveland snubbed the Governor
she did only what any other woman
would have done to the man who de
nied having likened her husband to a
dog because he had too much respect
fo the dog. There are some things
which even a politicians wife cannot
The State Ffcir managers report a
surplus of $15000 as a result of this
year's work. This will enable them to
run next ear's exposition without sell
ing privileges to gamblers, fakirs, for
tune tellers and other like characters.
It may also save President Merriam
the trouble of saying that he would
rather draw his personal check for the
amount of privilege money paid, than
permit the gambling to continue, after
it has been going on for nearly a week.
On his return from Philadelphia,
where'he has been to represent Minne
sota at the constitutional convention,
Lieut. Gbv. Rice allowed himself to be
interviewed and confessed to a reporter

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has
just rendered an important opinion, as
snowing the liability of assessment life
insurance campanies. Mary Stylow,
of Watertown, brought suit against the
Wisconsin Odd Fellows' Mutual Life
Insurance Company, to recover $1,000
insurance on her husband's life. It was
shown in the lower court that when
Stylow died he had not paid up two as
sesments. It was also shown that if a
person insured failed to pay the assess
ment within sixty days after it was
made on him his own policy would be
rendered void. Stylow had failed to
pay repeatedly within sixty days, but
when he finally did tender the amount
of his assessment itwas always accepted.
When he died the company declined to
pay the insurance on Stylow's life, OD
the ground that he was behind two as
sessments. The court held that the
company is liable. The Supreme Court
sustained this verdict.
There has been some surprise shown
at the fact that with a wheat crop prob
ably 30,000,000 bushels below that
f last year and a fair export de
mand,j the price of wheat should re
main so low. It happens sometimes
that when the wheat crop is a short one
in the United States it is unusually
large elsewhere. This is one of the
years in which such a thing has hap
pened. The European wheat crop is
now known to be unusually lirge. The
statistics of the international corn mar
ket of Vienna,, which have gained a
well-deseived reputation for accuiacy,
show the crop of 1887 to be far above
the average. The Austrian yield is
placed at 17 per cent, above an average
and that of Hungary at 26 per cent,
above. Instead of buying wheat, as is
frequently the case, Austro-Hungary
will have 30,000,000 bushels to export.
The crop in Great Britain and Ireland
is 20 per cent, above an average in
Servia, 40 Central Russia, 18 Wal
lachia, 25, and France, 5 The yield in
'other European countries is up to or
above the average, making it certain
that the demand for American and., In
dian wheat will not be so great as in
former years. If this estimate should
be found too high, however, the Ameri
can surplus for export will be large
enough to meet a very heavy demand.
With the surplus carried over from
1886, the available^wheat in the United
States will not fall much short of 500,-
000,000 bushels, an amount that will
meet the most liberal demands for home
consumption and leave a large surplus
to be exported or carried over, as may
be the case. Under the circumstances
wheat is pretty certain to rule low du
ring the coming year. While this will
be unfortunate for the farmers it will
prove the reverse for the millions of
working people who must buy their
bread. It is an ill wind that blows no
body good, and what promises to be the
loss in this case is certain to
prove the gain of an equal or greater
number who do not own
raise wheat Winona Republican, demonstration of any kind.
A Minneapolis ward politician by the
name of Peter Anderson brought a
charge against Mr. S. D. Peterson, of
this city, last week, claiming that Mr.
Peterson had received $20,000 from the
Columbia Society to corrupt the Legis
lature and had also been employed by
the Manitoba road to lobby against
certain railroad measures in the late
Legislature. Coming from so unreli
able a source, as this man Anderson is
said to be, it is rather surprising that
the twin city dailies wasted so much
valuable space upon the sensation as
they did. But perhaps the usual stock
of sensational news had run short and
so they utilized this for all it was worth.
It was quite unnecessary for Mr. Peter
son to go to the trouble of denying the
assertions claimed to have been made
by this man Anderson. No thinking
person could read the charges with
out being impressed by their absurdity.
Mr. Peterson states that Anderson is
a dead beat, having written him letters
asking him for money, on one occasion
having got a lawyer of Minneapolis to
write a letter advising Peterson to pay
Anderson money in order to keep his
name from the public. Mr. Peterson
still has the the letter in his possession,
and promises to make things lively for
several people. This man Anderson
first met Mr, Petersen in Chicago and
afterwards in St. Paul. During the ses
sion of the legislature Anderson was
working to defeat the high licence bill,
and finding Peterson was in the same
interest tried to borrow $50, which Mr.
P. refused to loan. This wasthe beginn
ing of the enmity and led to the throat
ing letters that Anderson has sent and
caused to be sent. Mr. Peterson says
he does not know who composed the
Columbia association, and emphatic
ally denies having used money in their
interest. He worked against the high
license bill because the people of this
district were against it. He denies
having worked against the railroad bills
and most emphatically denies having
been employed by J. J. Hill for that
purpose. It looks as though the state*
ments against Mr. Peterson were made
for the purpose of blackmail more than
TH E G. A. ENCAMPMENT
Over Fifty Thousand Members are
Expected to meet at St, Louis.
St. Louis Sep. 25.The boys in blue
are gathering at the camping grounds,
and the streets of St. Louis are sprinkled
with Grand Army men with breasts
decked with copper and ribbon badges.
The thoroughfares were crowded with
strangers all day, and from the depots
crowds of visitors passed to and fro.
The beat of the drum and whistle of
the fife grows familiar and all pedestri
ans drop unwillingly into the steady
tramp. Bulletins in the shops and tele
graphs announced the approach of dele
gations, and the advance guard in
squads and by posts rolled into the city
by every incoming train. The Pacific
slope swooped down upon the town in
thirty-three carsfifteen hundred strong
from California and a hundred more
from Oregon, Washington Territory and
Alaska. They came with the products
of peacethe fruits, the wines and the
grapes of the golden landand in the
great hall of the armory are preparing
to exhibit, as the Knight Templars did
last year, some of the blessings of their
fertile country. Within a block of the
armory, their camp ef tents shelter 800
men to-nightthe first of the boys to
take to the field. Scarcely had their
tramp died out when Wisconsin, led by
Gov. Rusk and his body guard of seven
teen maimed soldiers, marched through
tho streets escorted by 150 men from
Milwaukee. Their tents were pitched
in Can place, and after Msitmg their
quarters, many sought their comrades
from Illinois, who were quartered at
Lyon Park. Three hundred from the
Quincy, 111. Soldiers Home had arrived,
and as thy took possession the one
legged staff of Wisconsin marched
around the ground on an inspection tour.
Ohio's delegation of 400 from Cleveland
came in latev
and hastened to St. Louis
Park, where they were joined by squads
from Indiana.Eansas and Massachusetts
had manv men at their tents at Wash
ington Park, though the posts will not
arrive until to-morrow. A martial air
pervades the city, and several thousand
soldiers perambulate the streets, and
promise many more than were at first
expected. As California came 1,500
strong instead of 800 as was at first
promised, and as each other state now
sends notice of increased attendance,
the total number will swell to
more than fifty thousand. As these
men arrive they will be met at
the depot by a reception committee,
who will send one man with each post
to direct them to their quarters. Tents
and rooms are prepared for all, no mat
ter what number. As Gen. Sherman
retired from Ransom post last night he
left all public matters behind, and ear
ly this morning visited the home of
Mrs. Henry S. Turner, where he re
mained until evening, when he returned
to Henry Hitchcock's residence, where
a few old friends were received without

asked if he was a candidate for com

plied, "No, and please put that in the
plainest term you have." He says
that under no circumstances can he be
induced to be a candidate for the honor.
Ex-Commander-in-chief M. S. Kountz
of Toledo, Ohio, Robert B. Beath of

They were driven through the city this
afternoon, visiting each camp and view

of the grand parade (Tuesday) business
will be practically suspended, as Mayor
Francis has declared it as a holiday,
and requested all persons to observe it
as such. The merchants exchange
have signified their intention of

board of trade on that day. The schools
will also be closed and the warmest re
ception extended to the veterans on
every hand. Nothing has been left un
done for their entertainment, and a
warm welcome is extended to the mo
