afternoon for the purpose of considering tbe

and the attendance was general.
A number of routine matters were disposed

the force is- not up to tlie standard, that sev

much as they come and go at will, have been
off duty continually, without leave of ab

their pay stopped, nor discharged. But the

The Republican Bait to Catch Prohibition
Town crier of the News Letter, it seems,
has spent some time with profit in making a
searching of the plots and plans of the Re
publicans for the spring campaign. He
makes this expose:
I heard there had been an assemblage of
bosses—the slate makers—of the Republicans,
and that they decided that things had as
sumed a desperate pbaso; that their only
hope was in making combinations and com
promises. They reasoned that their only
chance for success was to capture the pro
hibition vote, and a sub-committee on lying
and promises was constituted, with
instruction to fill the ears of the cold-water
mob with the requisite amount of pledges to
win. A slate of ten prominent republicans
was selected, to be handed to the prohibs.
for them to choose one whom they would be
willing to support for mayor. Among the
names presented were Geo. A. Brackett,
Geo. A. Pillsbury and Deacon Nettleton.
That evening a conference committee (self
constituted) from the reps, and prohibs. met
at Mr. Brackett's residence, and the old
timers who prayed with Bro. Satterlee two years
ago, wept and besceched and promised as
they alone can. It proved of no avail, how
ever. The boss bull dog of prohibition
argued that these same promises, from the
same source, had been frequently made and
as frequently broken in the past, and that it
was a desperate stroke of hypocricy to regain
power. The prohibs. said, "if you love us so
fondly embrace this man," and they fired a
candidate at them that broke up the confer
ence. The absence of Fletcher and Wash
burn and CharUe Johnson was sadly felt,
and the repubs. adjourned for a drink and a
back office nickel talk. They finally arranged
THE ST. PAUL SUNDAY GLOBE, SUNDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 17, 1884.
for a plan of attack which was to crush
the prohibs. by o'erwhelmlng them by
numbers. Societies were to be manipultede
each of which was to select a committee to
meet the prohibs. In accordance with this
plan, the union league met Thursday even
ing, and six of them selected themselves as
representatives fo _ the combination attack.
The Young Duffer's club, Brackett, Invinei
bles, De Laittre Jayhawkers, Washburn,
Pinelanders, Fletcher Fixers and Hicks'
Rounders were drummed up for meetings
yesterday and to-day, and arrangements are
made to send a praying man with each dele
gation. If poor Satterlee and his crowd
don't catch it now it will be a caution.
Tlie first season of genuine grand opera to
which our people have ever been treated,
closed with the maline at the Grand yester
day afternoon. The bill was the tragic opera
LCCIA DI LAMMERMOOR,
and it brought before the footlights the great
est artists of Her Majesty's Opera
company, Mme. Etelka Gerster, Signor
Gollossi, Signor Vicini, Signor Lombardelli
and Mile Valerga. The opera in itself is in
every respect superior to the others rendered
in the brief season, and was, in fact, the
climax of the season. At the close of the
second act the audience filled the Grand with
uproarious applause, and not a few "bravos"
were sent up from enthusiastic throats, until
the theater rang with echoes. Encores fol
lowed encores, as the opera advanced, and
the prima donna was finally
compelled to merely graciously bow
the audience into silence.
The season has probably not been so prof
itable as could be wished. There are many
reasons which have contributed to this end.
In the first place our people have not been
educated up to that point in amusements
where they will depart with five dollars for a
seat, no matter how grand the entertainment.
Again, two notable society events occurred
daring the season, taking from the Grand
many of our wealthiest citizens. Besides
these it may be mentioned that
just at the present season a large
per cent, of our best theatre-goers are so
journing in warmer climes. ButjCol. Maple
son has established himself so thoroughly in
the good graces or our people that should he
return as he promises, he will be greeted by
brilliant audiences at each appearance. In
this connection it may bo well lo say that the
popular theory is had the prices ranged from
three dollars down to one dollar, the capacity
of the Grand would have been
tested at each appearance during the season
a critique by an eminent critic.
Prof. Gustavus F. Hall, who has sung in
opera for twenty years, and who was a mem
ber of a Grand Opera company with Mme.
Gerster for two years, aud whose education,
musical tasts and opportunities render him
one of the most reliable critics, furnishes the
readers of theGLOBE the following by special
Tlie flying visit of Col. Mapleson's Grand
Italian opera to our city was so sudden that
to many it seemed doubtful if it could be
true. However, they came and they have
conquered. Etilka Gerster, whose name is
known throughout the whole musical world,
is worthy of the praise which has been lav
ished upon her, both in Earope and this
country. Her career thus far has been
comparatively short, as she is still young.
Possessed of a remarkably clear voice
which she uses so artistically as to place her
beyond criticism. Her simplicity of manner
in the part of Amina, won every heart, and
then again her rendering of Donizetti's
lovely music of Lucia carried her audience
by storm. Her attack of the note is so clear,
her enunciation so perfect, her phrasing so
artistic, added to which her dramatic ability
is so wonderful. Her mad scene in Lucia
was intense, and tlie wonderful cadenza with
flute aecompauyment was beautiful beyond
description. Galassi must come next in
sharing the honors, His noble voice
coupled with his masterly ability, won for
him easy recognition as a great artist. Mdlle.
Dotti made a very successful appearance in
the role of Gilda in Rigoletto, aonsidering
that she undertook the study of her role
thirty-six hours before the performance.
Signori Vicini and Anton were two very
good tenors, who were also very successful,
the former in Sonnambula and Lusia, and
the latter in Rigoletto. Cherubini, the prin
cipal basso was very successful, possessing a
ponderous voice of a lovely timbre,
which he uses with perfect ease and finish
added to which his presence is fine.
With a grand chorus and an orchestra of
picked musicians, the best in New York
aud under the baton of one of the greatest
conductors in the world, Sig • Arditi, the
grand ensemble could only be perfect.
sam'l of POSEN.
To-morrow evening the distinguished com.
edian M- B. Curtis will present his hard life
picture "Sam'l of Posen" for the first time
in this city. Everywhere in his present tour
he has been received by large and enthusias
tic audiences and it is quite easy to see
why "Sam'l of Posen" has achieved such
success, It presents a great deal of truth
fulness, a certain phase of character which
is well known throughout the country, and
it does justice to a race which
has so long been abused and villified. Sam'l
Plastcrick is a commercial traveler, shrewd,
pushing, energetic, but he is not the villian
whieh has hitherto been put upon the stage
as a type of Hebrew chaacrter. This Jew is of
a bright and sunny nature, thrifty, but kindly
and with the spirit of gratitude firmly em
planted in him. The play will occupy the
Grand the first half of the week and will be
succeeded on Thursday night by Hanley's
Comedy company in McSorley's Inflation.
Manager M. Brisban will open Pence Ope
ra house to-morrow night, after a vacation of
two weeks, with the "Furnished Rooms" en
gagement. The company is said to be good,
and the comedy is well-known as one of the
most ridiculously funny productions extant.
The Armory Fair.
Yesterday was a busy day at the new ar
mory, making preparations for the fair which
opens to-morrow evening under the auspices
of the three companies of state militia in
Minneapolis. The hall is beautifully decor
ated and the booths are fixed up in artistic
The first booth you meet, on entering the
hall is that of company "I", lt is in the
shape of an oriental tent with appropriate
drapings pending from the ceilings and giv
ing entrance from all sides. In the lo^er
center of the hall is located Co. "A's"
booth representing the old stone Newport
tower, surmounted by corroded brass cannon.
Company "B's" booth is picturesque
in its appearances, and not a whit behind
the others. There are also other booths, a
postoffice, a lemonade well, a cafe, candy
stands, etc. The general booth, in charge of
Mrs. A. M. Bailey, will be fifteen feet in
diameter, in the shape of a dome surmount
ed by a crown and will be used for ice-cream
and flowers. There is a sloping platform at
the rear of the hall, twenty feet high, twenty
feet long and twenty feet wide.
To the right of this is a shooting gallery.
The fair will be open each evening of the week,
and on Wednesday afternoon Danz's brass
and string bands will be in attendance to
discourse sweet airs and charm the ears of
the fair women and brave men who will un
doubtedly flock in large numbers as a com
pliment to the Home Guards, and to make
the fair the grandest social success of the
Hell's Half Acre.
There is a classic spot ou Third avenue
south, between Eighth and Ninth streets,
bearing the plutonian appellation of "Hell's
Half Acre," and inhabited chiefly by natives
of Bohemia and Hungary. Yesterday even
ing a telephone dispatch was received at
police headquarters from a lady residing in
the locality, saying that a murder was about
to be committed by a drunken Bohemian, who
was pursuing a man and woman and
threatening to kill them with a spring dirk
knife of formidable dimensions. Lieut.
Dahly immediately detailed officers James
Smith and Jacob Hein to investigate the
matter. On arriving at "Hell's Half Acre,"
they found it in a perfect pandemonium.
About fifty men and women were indulgingjn
a drunken orgie and creating consternation
for blocks around. Five kegs of beer were
yet untapped and had it not been for the ap
pearance of the guardians of the law, in all j
probability the worship of King Gambrinus '
would be continued up to the "wee sma'
hours" of Sunday morning.
Two young men in a boisterous anduppro
arious state of intoxication, one of them be
ing the man who was flourishing the dirk
knife and threatening destruction on his
foes, were arrested by the officers and
brought to the refrigerator to cool off and
observe the Sabbath in a
more christian manner than they
would have done if left at large. Their
knowledge of classical English is wofully
imperfect, but in all the phrases redolent of
fire and brimstone they show an astonishing

Analyses of the air of the Alps have been
made by a French and a Swiss investigator,

is not to be found until a height of from 6,

From the atmosphere of lower regions-even

An ornithological congress is to be oper
ed at Vienna on April ICth under the aus
pices of Crown Prince Rudolff. Among the
important subject to be considered is that of
providing means for systematically studying
in all parts of the world the migration and

now known. These matters are already re

globe at a scries of ornithological observa

In a lecture upon the Eskimos delivered
in London a few days ago, Dr. Rae expressed
the opinion that this people was originally an
Asiatic race, who crossed from Siberia by
Behring's Straits. From Labrador to Alaska
they speak but one language, with slight dia
lectical variations. They are physically
strong, have great affection fbr their children,
and are intelligent and faithful. The tallest
male measured by Dr. Simpson near Beh
ring's Straits was 5 feet 10% inches, and the
shortest was 5 feet 1 inch; the heaviest
weighed 195 pounds, and the lightest 125
pounds. An Eskimo often eats as much as
eight pounds of seal or 12 pounds of fish at a
meal. The clothing of the people is made
almost entirely of reindeer skins; and their
dwellings, usually snug and comfortable,
consist of stone and mud kraals, wooden
huts, and snow houses, according to locality.
A late very severe epidemic of trichinosis
in Germany —affecting 250 persons and caus
ing forty deaths—has been traced to a single
trichinous hog, whose flesh was eaten raw.
By careful investigation of this outbreak Dr.
Brouardel has learned that the trichina; were
most vigorous in their attacks upon the hu
man system within about twenty-four hours
after the slaughter of the hog, and thirty
three per cent of those who ate the infected
meat during that period died in consequence.
After the first twenty-four hours the power of
the pork worms to produce mischief seemed
to gradually decrease until, when the sixth
day was reached, sickness alone followed the
eating of the meat, without a single death.
The medical men who treated these cases
affirm that the trichinae were more success
fully resisted by children than by adults,
while old people suffered most. Five persons
who partook of the diseased pork had it
cooked, and those persons were unharmed.
In discussions concerning the habit-ability
of other planets than ours it is usually as
sumed that all other beings having bodies
must be clothed in flesh and bones similar to
those of terrestrial animals, and must be
adapted to live under similar conditions.
Such an assumption is not justified, and
Prof. Alexander Winchell remarks that it is
not at all improbable that substances of a re
fractory nature may enter into the composi
tion of organisms unknown to us so as to
render them capable of enduring vastly
greater vicissitudes of heat and cold than is
possible with the earth's inhabitants. This
well-known geologist also finds it conceiva
ble that sentient creatures may exist who do
not require daily food and warmth, and who
might be lost in the abysses of the ocean, or
laid up on a stormy cliff through the tem
pests of an Arctic winter, or plunged In a
volcano for a hundred years, and yet retain
consciousness and thought. "Why," he
asks, "might not psychic natures be en
shrined in indestructible flint and platinum?
These substances are no further from the na
ture of intelligence than carbon, hydrogen,
oxygen and lime."
He Dare Not Swear and Have Boynton
Cross Examine Him.
The Committee of Investigation Else With
out Doing Anything.
Washington, Feb. 16.—The committee
appointed to investigate the charges prefer
red against II. V. Boynton, Washington cor
respondent of the Cincinnati Commercial
Gazettee, by Representative Keifer, began its
sitting to-day. All members of the commit
tee, consisting of Messrs. Hopkins, of Penn
sylvania; Ward, of Indiana; Adams, of New
York; Poland, of Vermont; and Wilson, of
Iowa, were present. While waiting for Mr.
Keifer^ the question was asked as to whether
either of the parties desired to be represent
ed by counsel. Gen. Boynton stated that he
desired the committee to conduct the exami
nation, but he would like the privilege of
cross examining Gen. Keifer, if that gentle
men should under oath repeat the charges
made against him. Mr. Keifer said, in re
sponse to a question from the chairman,
that Mr. J. Coleman would speak for
him as counsel. It was obvious to every
member that he had committee and other
work to attend to, and could not give his
personal attention to this investigation. Mr.
Coleman then said it was necessarv that it
should be proved that Gen. Keifer had made
the charges against Boynton, as there was
nothing in the resolution which brought the
charges before the committee. When it was
proved that the charges had been made, then
Keifer would be in a position to prove the
truth of the charges. The committee, how
ever, was unanimously of the opinion that,
inasmuch as Keiferhad preferred the charges,
both in the house and in letters, they were
fully set forth and within the " juris
diction of the committee. Coleman
said he assumed, in the view of this
decision, the burden of proof was on Gen.
Keifer to substantiate before the committee
the charges against Boynton, that he was
able to pro v.- the facts set forth iu the resolu
tion. In doing so there would be involved
the talcing of a great deal of testimony, and
he wished all the witnesses here before taking
testimony. He had witnesses in New York
and New Jersey who could not be present
Mr. Adams suggested that if at the inter
view, when this supposed attempt to bribe
Keifer was made there was nobody present
except Keifer and Boynton, what he wanted
to know was, how Coleman could procure
any witnesses before the committee that
could enlighten the committee and the
couutry in regard to the alleged conversa
Mr. Coleman replied, that he might prove
general that Boynton had said to others that
hedha made statements to Keifer.
Mr. Adams inquired whether it would not
be more regular to prove the statement
Mr. Coleman said he had a telegram from
a witness in Ohio, which stated that he could
not come, owing to the illness of his wife,
but he expected to be here next week. He
(Coleman) believed, if the committee would
fix a future day, Keifer could put iu all his
testimony. One of his witnesses was sick
in bed, and another in New York would not
come except under a subpoena.
Mr. Boynton expressed great surprise in
view that the charges made against him had
been before the public in every daily pa
per for weeks. He was entirely satisfledif he
could have an opportunity to cross examine
Keifer under oath, to go on and reverse all
the ordinary rules of laws, and prove himself
innocent of those charges by the testimony,
which he thought would be accepted, not
only by the members of the committee, but
by the country. He would be able to do that
before the sun went down. He thought
it only just to him that
a gentleman who made charges should stand
here like a man, and answer under his oath
in regard to these charges, and not slink be :
hind any technicality. Let the parties to the
case face the charges and answer for them
selves under the pains and penalties of per
jury. He was very anxious to have tbe case
goon. He had a few witnesses, but they
were here, and after a long delay from day
to day, the house had ordered an investiga
tion. It seemed there was no excuse what
ever for any one making such grave eharges,
and not to be able to answer before the com
Mr. Coleman said Keifer would swear to
all he charged, and prove it to the satisfac
tion of every member of the committee.
Mr. Keifer said he did not suppose his
duty extended very far, but the committee's
duty a great way. He was not called upon
to abandon all his proper duties on the floor,
and in committies. to pursue this investiga
tion as though he were pursuing General
Boynton with vengeance. He had buncombe
to put in nothing of that kind. He had not
had time to make preparation for this
investigation, and he could not very well be
examined now, as there are certain matters
connected with the case which were out of
Mr. Coleman also claimed that the commit
tee had no authority to hold Keifer respon
sible for what he said upon the floor of the
house, as such action would be unconstitu
The chairman, Mr. Hopkins, said Keifer
had knowledge of some facts bearing on this
investigation and as he was present, he
could see no reason for a postponement.
General Keifer certainly could not plead he
was not ready to make his statement of the
case, as he understood it, and he would not
decline to make it under oath.
Mr. Coleman read a telegram from New
Jersey. He would not show his hand by giv
ing his name to the other side, stating his
wife was sick, but if necessary to General
Keifer's vindication, he would come to Wash
ington on Monday. After some further talk
it was decided to adjourn the case till Wed

The greatest impure yet given to belief in im

Jesus in God as the universal father,—the father
of the evil as well as of the good,—whose sun

to the child is a tie which death may not sever.
It goes below all distinction of character, of ca

certain that, while you stand firm, the world
will come round to you,—that is independence.
It is not difficult to get away iuto retirement, and
there live upon your own convictions; nor is it
difficult to mix with men, and follow their con

[Fargo Special Telegrams, Feb. 16, to the St.
C. S. Palmer Vindicated.
The report of the interview of Gov. Ord
way at Washington in which he alleged that
Gen. Campbell is trying to connect C. S.
Palmer with the alleged peculiarities of the
capital commission with a view to the defeat
of his selection to fill the vacant judgeship in
the interest of Campbell, stirred that
gentleman to tropical heat to-day and he in
duced the members of the grand jury to
attach their signatures to this explicit
Grand Jury Rooms, Fargo, Feb. 16.
We the members of the grand jury, Third
district court at Fargo, in view of the asser
tion telegraphed to the press as in an inter
view with Gov. Ordway on February 15, that
the name of C. S. Palmer, assistant United
States attorney, had been brought before us
connection with certain charges, desire to
say that this alleged assertion of Gov. Ord
way is utterly without foundation and is ex
tremely unjust to Mr. Palmer and to Mr.
Campbell. Mr. Palmer's name has not been
brought before the grand jury in any connec
tion whatever. No charge of any kind has
been intimated against him. His character
and reputation, as we believe, are without
reproach. [Signed by eleven members of
the grand jury, all that were present.]
General Campbell adds this: "The asser
tion from Gov. Ordway that there was any
proposition, bargain or attempted bargain
between Mr. Palmer and myself about the
judgeship is untrue. I have made no person
al effort to present my own name for the
judgeship. What has been done in that re
gard has been by members of the bar with
out any solicitation on my part, and with the
distinct understauding that I was not to
make any personal efforts in the matter."
A lively time is reported in the meeting of
the grand jury this morning between the
members of that body and General Camp
bell. While they concede that the name of
C. S. Palmer has not been before them in
connection with the capital commission,
there is a strong feeling among them that
they have been made cat paws to pull chest
nuts out of the lire for Gen. Campbell.
The excitement was so great this morning
that the discussion was overheard. The son
orous voice of Col.Plummer strayed beyond the
secret boom, bearing the imputation that
Gen. Campbell was filling his pockets whik
but the merest trivial financial accretions
reached the colonel and his fellow toilers,
and that they were being used to subserve
his personal schemes under the nominal at
tempt to catch the small fellows who have
been guilty of petty irregularities in land
claim matters and gathering chips from Uncle
Sam's wood piles.
No Dakota Bills Will be Passed.
Hon. Alex. Hughes, chairman of the cap
ital commission, passed west to-day on his
return from Bismarck, and in an interview
expressed the opinion that none of the Da
kota bills in congress would be passed on
this session. The heavy lobby from Dakota
is unable to agree upon any measure, and
the different factions will only succeed in
defeating each other. He referred to the
United States grand jury in session here as a
"smut mill," and expressed disgust and in-,
dignation at Its reported attempts to smirch
the members of the capital commission, and
the use made of the names of Gov. Ordway
and C. 8. Palmer.
The Grand Jury Discharged.
The United States grand jury made their
final report this evening and were discharged
so that the capital commission, Ordway,
Palmer and the rest, can breathe easy. They

Valentine Baker, by title Baker Pasha,
whose army has just suffered so terrible a
defeat at the hand of the Arab and negro al
lies of the Mahdi, lisis an Eng
man by birth, like Ilo
bart Pasha and other Turkish and Egyptian
commanders. After the rout of the forces
of Hicks Pasha, Baker was generally looked
to as the main support of the Khedive's au
thority. The mission in which he was en
gaged at the time was an attempt to relieve
the loyal garrison nt Sinkat, whenceTewfik
Pa9ha recently made a sortie, only to be'eut to
pieces with all his troops. The defeat of
Baker Pasha took place near Tokar, a vil
lage near the Red Sea. As might be expected,
the European soldiers fought desperately and
bravely. Baker was ably supported by Col.
Burnaby (author of the famous "Ride to
Khiva"), and by Col. Saratorius. Fortunate
ly all these distinguished officers escaped.
The Egyptian soldiers, who composed the
main part of the army, behaved with the
most disgraceful poltroonery, and were
slaughtered like sheep by the Arabs under
Osman Digra. The slaughter continned as
far as Trinkitat, where the fugitives took
refuge on an English ship. Over 2,000
were killed, including 96 officers, of whom
16 were Europeans. Four Krupp and two
Gatling guns were lost.
It is said that Egyptian cavalry soldiers
even threw their saddles away, and turned
their horses loose that they might not be
forced into the fight. The previous history
of Baker Pasha is a curious one. Not many
years ago he was a dashing officer in the 10th
Hussars, a*petted darling of London society,
and an intimate friend of the Prince of
Wales. Ail this he lost by his mad folly of
attacking an English young lady in one of
the compartment carriages of an English
railway. In the famous criminal trial that
followed, he injured his cause by attempting
to blacken the character and motives of the
young lady. Cashiered and for a time im
prisoned, he resolved to retrieve his reputa
tion by gallant conduct, entered the Turkish
service, became a favorite with the Sultan
and served with distinction in the Ottoman
army. In 1882 he was appointed the Sultan's
representative to superintend the introduc
tion of reforms in Asia Minor. At the close
of the Egyptian campaign that followed the
seige of Alexandria, Baker Pasha resigned
his post as aide-de-camp to the Sultan to ac
cept charge of the task of reorganizing the
Egyptian army. The recent disaster is in no
sense his fruit. Baker Pasha is a gallant
soldier, a rigid disciplinarian, and his ca
pacity, fideUty and gallantry have in a
measure wiped out the disgraceful stain of
his youthful folly.
The Belle of Neiv Tork.
[New York Letter to the Washington Star.]
There have been many charming girls in
New York society of recent years, and a
number who have been considered beauties
in their particular sets, but until recently no
one has been the acknowledged queen of
unmarried women through the length and
breadth of New York society. Miss Marion
Langdon is now known as the most beauti
ful girl iu New York. She is taU, her figure
is exquisitely moulded and her eyes are su
perb. She is quite dark and extremely
graceful. Whenever Miss Langdon consents
to dance with the leader of a German the
struggle for invitations is breathless and pro
longed. Miss Langdon has been engaged
several times, but in every instance the en
gagement has been broken off quietly and
nothing more heard of it. Last summer her
engagement to Perry Belmont was officially
announced, and the marriage was to have
taken place this spring at Newport, but for
some reason which has never come out the
affair was broken off. Eeverybody says that
Mr. Bermont didn't do it and that the rup
ture was entirely due to Miss Langdon's cap
rice. She certainly dismissed a most desira
ble suitor, for Mr. Belmont is one of the
most eligible bachelors in America.
It is said that a young Englishman, who
will have a title when his father dies and
who spent last summer in Newport, did
much towards encouraging Miss Langdon to
change her mind about her marriage with

New Bedford, June 1,1SS3.
Du. J. C. Ater ii Co.—Twenty years ago I
was a harpooner in tbe North Pacific, when live
others of the crew and myself were laid up with
scurry. Our bodies were bloated, gums swollen
aud bleeding, tectb loose, purple blotcbee all
over us, and our breath seemed rotten. Take it
by aud large we were pretty badly off. All our
lhne-juice was accidentally destroyed, but the
captain bad a couple dozen bottle* of Atir's
Sarsaparilla ana gave us that. We recov
ered on it quicker than I bave ever seen men
brought about by any other treatment for Scurry,
and I've seen n good deal of it. Seeing no men
tion in your Almanac of your Sarsaparilla being
good for scurvy, I thought you ought to know of
Ibis, and so send you the fact*.

here for over two years, during which time we
bad to live in tents. Being under canvas for
