The i-orpopnli was completely ignored yes
terday by the Republican convention. Not-
Withstanding the fact that Mr. Wyman was
petitioned by nearly two thousand good citi
zens to run for mayor, and also endorsed by
the Prohibitionists at Harrison hall, he was
ignomimously rejected by the one hundred
and fifty Republican schemers at Market hall.
Voxpopidi may be vox dei, but the unsophisti
cated citizens who signed the call for Wyman
are convinced by this time that the voice of
the people is disregarded by
the rascally Republican party. That
party displayed its hoggishness yesterday by
nominating for mayor an antediluvian like
Geo. A. Pillsbury who will be surely defeated
at the polls. The Republicans are more de
sirous of obtaining supremacy in municipal
affairs than of introducing any reforms.
For hours the Pillsburyites begged and
prayed Mr. Wyman to withdraw from the
field yesterday; but happily in
vain. They went to him in a hack
just as soon as Mr. Pills
bury had accepted the nomination. Mr.
Wyman realized that he has been ill treated
not only by Mr. Pillsbury but by the Republi
cans. It is no secret that it was an under
standing that Mr. Pillsbury would not run
against Mr. Wyman, and the Globe
is of the opinion that this is
an important fact which will prove a power
ful factor in the campaign, and redound to
the injury of Mr. Pillsbury. Furthermore,
the fact of that explicit understanding can
Despite the fact that the Republicans
found solace, last night, in saying again and
again that they had nominated
the next mayor of Minneapolis,
it only required a cursory observation to dis
cover the fact that the cheerfulness was
superficial—nothing more. Mr. Pillsbury
with a certain class of voters, is popular.
Thatthe Globe concedes, but that popularity
is not general among the masses.

bids for his defeat, and he now has it.
Knowing full well that it would be an im
possibility to secure a Democratic nomina
tion he went into the Republican convention,
and he was ignominiously sat down upon.
The Hon. C. A. Pillsbury will see "one of
his relations" slaughtered next election day;
despite his own popularity and the wealth of
all the Pillsburys to boot. Nothing can avert
the sanguinary sacrifice.

than to have nominated Samuel Goodnow to
the office of city comptroller.

A POLITICAL VICTIM.
George A. Pillsbury Set Up for
The Republican Choice—J. T. Wyman
Sam Goodnow Nominated for City Comp
troller « W. B. Hill's Pins aU
The Republican city convention was held
in Market hall yesterday, convening at 10
o'clock. The large gathering of spectators
evidenced the fact that unusual intesest is
being taken in municipal politics, as well as
the fact that it was predicted an interesting
contest was about to occur
between the Pillsbury and the
Wyman factions. Many of the delegates
were known to be Wyman men, and it was
expected that they would make a decided
stand in favor of their standard bearer.
That they had not the temerity to rise up
and publicly assert their prefer
ence, is perhaps a matter
of surprise, unless ' it be
for the reason that they were cleverly out
generaled by the shrewder wire-pullers and
slate makers of the opposing element. Of
course no compromise could have been
made by the convention whereby Mr. Wy
man would have become the candidate. It
would have effected a disorganization of the
party which would not have been
glued together again in time
to accomplish effective campaign work next
fall. Then the convention did all that was
left for it to do—nominate George A. Pills
bury, and force him to accept and to run.
The convention was called to order by F.
F. Davis, the chairman of the city committee,
and Judge Rea at once nominated him for
Mr. Davis made the customary acknowl
edgement of the high honors conferred in
selecting him to perform the duties of pre
siding over the August body assembled. He
spoke of the exigencies of the campaign
as presented by the complicated
condition of Republican municipal
politics. He said the people felt an anxious
solicitude. Then he belittled himself by
hurling bad smelling words at the present
administration, It was the old, old abusive
policy of the campaign of two years ago re
suscitated, and they were words, too, which
fitted the peculiar shape and dimensions of
the mouth of the speaker with un amazing
aptitude. From this he drifted back to the
convention saying that it was the crystaliza
tion of a grand attempt to seenre a better
government, although that is not what law
yers usually care for. He called upon Ids
hearers to vote to lift the city from the ruin
into which it had been plunged and then
prayed that [wisdom govern the convention.
Fred Peet and W. P. Roberts were chosen

that the roll be called so that it might be as

were not delegates were requested to with

audience seemed decidedly reluctant, and
moved slowly, despite the request of the
A vote was then taken upon Mr. Corser's
amendment, delegating a conference com
mittee, showing 67 in the affirmative and 2S
in the negative.
Freeman Lane exclaimed that the conven
tion did not understand the spe
cific object of the motion and being called to
order by the chair, upon the ground that the
question had been Qabsolutely disposed of,
paid no heed but continued his protest at
.length, opposing the selection of a candidate
"by any committee. He urged that it was
bad policy and hinted strongly that it was a

given the power to select their own nom
inee, and to transfer that power to a few
would be impolitic, and extremely hazard
ous, and insinuated in marked terms that
Wyman could not be nominated by such
means. The convention was made up of
men fully capable of judging for themselves
regarding their political preferences.
A. H. Nund moved a reconsideration of
Mr. Gilfillan, who had opposed the motion,
favored first taking an informal expression
of the convention for the purpose of furnish
ing guidance to the committee. It was a
practical "feeler" and an experiment which
he would like to see tried by the entire con
vention, and not by a few who might be
shrewdly selected for the purpose.
E. 8. Corser took the floor agatn to sup
port his position. The action of the com
mittee could not be final, and therefore he
COTJLD NOT UNDERSTAND
why the conference should be objectionable.
It would be conducive to harmony.
Judge Rea thought this trouble with which
the party had to contend was the fact that
there had been
TOO MUCH CONFERENCE BUSINESS,
and back office caucusing. Let the conven
tion make its own selection, and do away
with all these irregularities comprised in
conferences. Conferences are dangerous
institutions and should be abolished by the
The motion was then reconsidered by a
large majority, after a fire all along the line.
Dr. Evans was again on his feet to urge
thatthe convention would not be holden by
the action or the committee.
F. P. Lane moved that the matter be ta
bled, in a short address andthe motion car
THE WTMAN MOVEMENT.
A delegate moved that an informal ballot
be taken for mayor and Mr.
Gilfillan moved an amendment
that the convention first take a vote upon the
question, whether the people's candidate be
endorsed or rejected, alleging that it was a
question which took precedency and must
first be disposed of.
Chas. A. Pillsbury endorsed this, stating
that Mr. Wyman had been brought out by a
large numberof our leadingcitizens, and Mr.
Wyman was therefore entitled to a respectful
consideration. He wished to say for Geo.
A. Pillsbury that it had been decided that it
was better for the convention and in the
interests of the party to nominate a new man.
That is the stand taken by Geo. A. Pillsbury.
He has not sought the nomination
and it was probable that he would not accept
the nomination. He looked upon the en
dorsement of Wyman with disfavor for the
reason he did not think he could be elected.
Yet he is entitled to a serious consideration
and a respectful consideration at the hands
of the convention. Should he be rejected
the matter would be finally disposed of, and
should he be endorsed, well and good.
Mr. Gilfillan saw something In Mr. Pillsbu
ry's remarks which convinced him of a firm
desire to eliminate the Wyman candidacy,
and also to get at a plan whereby everybody's
idea may meet with due consideration. He
was willing to support cordially any respecta
ble man which the convention may
select; after having ignored the wishes
of those who had endorsed publicly the can
didacy, the convention would stand under
the stigma of having
A secret ballot will compromise not one
delegate in the convention, and then the
matter would be peremptorily done away
with. He believed that in the event the con
vention failed to endorse the people's candi
date, Mr. Wyman would withdraw.
Mr. Pittman understood by the remarks of
C. A. Pillsbury that his father (Geo. A. Pills
bury), had been withdrawn from the con
vention. Then why not vote directly for Mr.
Wyman. He did not know whether Wyman
is a prohibitionist or not. If he is, then he is
as certain to meet with defeat as he is to re
ceive the nomination.
NOT IN THAT LIGHT.
Mr. Pillsbury did not look at it in that
light. Mr. Wyman has been asked by a
large number of citizens'to become a candi
date, and he has consented. It is due him
that he be first considered.
Then let the convention either
endorse the candidacy of Wyman or reject
him and then take up some new man.
Mr. Gilfillan had been given to understand
that it was Mr. Wyman's desire that the vote
be taken and the speaker hoped that no del
gate would vote upon the assumption that it
will be distasteful to Mr. Wyman. Even
though he be rejected, he prefers
the expression. If the convention falls to
fndorse him Mr. Gilfillan thought Mr. Wy
man would withdraw from the field.
Judge Rea was not one who had brought
out Mr. Wyman, The question is shall the
convention indorse the candidacy of the
people's candidate. Now let the convention
vote directly and not indirectly.
A GREAT MISFORTUNE.
Mr. Lane thought it a great misfortune
that the matter should have been brought
before the convention at all. Mr. Wyman
declared himself a candidate anyway and
the convention is wasting time. His candi
dacy is a side issue. This convention should
not submit tamely to such bull
dozing. It is simply putting up a man
against nothing. It will not accomplish any
thing and is the sheerest nonsense.
Mr. Roberts could see no objection to a
viva voce vote. Mr. Gilfillan explained the
object in a secret ballot was to give every
delegate full opportunity to vote as he pleases,
without his neighbor knowing it.
The discussion ran on ad lib, amid cries of
"question, question," and a little confusion
At this junction there was a general sort
ing out of the delegates from among the
spectators, when a vote was taken as to
whether the convention proceed to take

CHAS. A. DIDN'T WANT IT.
Chas. A. Pillsbury stated that he felt grate
ful for the com dimentary vote. He also felt
like Artemus Ward after the tattle of Bulls
Run when he said he hadjratherjsee all his
wife's relations sacrificed than to see
the rebels succeed. Mr. Pillsbury
would perhaps be willing to sacrifice his sta
tion, but he oould not sacrifice himself.
His business and family relations were such
that he could not accept the nomination
should it be tendered to him, and therefore
positively withdrew his name from the con
GEORGE A. MADE HAPPT.
Judge Rea, reflecting the idea of a larger
portion of the masses of the city, and in the
interests of good order and the promotion of
the morals of the city, took the floor to move
the nomination of Geo. A. Pillsbury. He
slobbered taffy over him being the re
presentative and champion of labor;
the unintimidated and spontaneous
choice of the people, for the
position of chief executive. A vote being
taken, Geo. A. Pillsbury was declared the
unanimous choice of the committee.

to say that I am not capable of expressing my
gratitude to you for the preference you have
shown in nominating me for mayor of the
city of Minneapolis but I can truly say that
the choice has fallen upon me unsolicited. I
have not sought the office. I am placed
here in peculiar circumstances. I don't
know what I have done to be placed in this
position against my expressed wishes. I
have much confidence in the gentlemen who
have chosen me, as they represent the people
of this city. I respect your motives. In ac
cepting the nomination, which I do this
nomination from the Republican party. I do
it as a matter of duty and not of choice.
I shall do what I can for the
benefit of Minneapolis if the nomination Is
ratified at the polls. I am a Republican, and
I believe the Republicans of Minneapolis are
capable of dictating what government they
want, and that I will represent it. I have
not sought the nomination, but have urged
my friends against it. I would cordially sup
port any man nominated by the convention.
Reluctant as I am in accepting the nomina
tion pressed upon me, if lt is ratified at the
polls, I will endeavor to perform the duties
of the position to the best of my ability.

Dr. Denton the temporary organization was
On motion of Dr. Denton speakers were
limited to five minute addresses.
The following resolution was then proposed
Whereas, The existing condition of municipal
affairs imperatively demand a change of admin
istration for the absolute safety of life and pros
perity in onr midst, and
Whereas, Mr. J. T. Wyman, a man of the
people, of nndonbted personal character and
ability, has been placed before the people as a
man or peoples' candidate, and
Whereas, Mr. Wyman has our entire confidence,
and we believe that he will enforce such re
strictive laws as we have, and that he Is in sym
pathy with every movement for the suppression
of the liquor traffic. Now therefore we, the pro
hibitionists of the city do hereby endorse his
nomination and pledge him our support.
Speeches were then made by Messrs.
Temple, Tice, Gallagher and Durnham to
the effect, that while willing to endorse
the peoples' candidate they desire good rea
sons why he should be supported.
The following amendment was offered by
Dr. Skimp as a substitute for the original
Whereas, Mr. James T. Wyman has accepted
a nomination tendered him by 1,850 citizens ir
respective of party affiliations, for the office of
mayor of this city, to be voted for in the coming

neapolis, in convention assembled, do hereby en
dorse the nomination of Mr. Wyman and pledge
him our hearty support.
The same was unanimously adopted after
calling for a division and a re-con
sideration. Mr. Tice said he was
emphatically in favor of reform and if there
was no possibility of electing Wyman he was
in favor of supporting any candidate for a
better change in the municipal administra
tion. Dr. Emery said that 1,850 citizens,
irrespective of party affilations had called
upon him, Wyman, by petition to be
come a candidate, and the pledges
they had given they would fulfill. He had
been selected by citizens of all parties, and
not by any one party. He cared not what
any other party did to-day. He was in favor
of appointing and endorsing Mr. Wyman.
W. W. Latterlee said, as they were in un
certainty as to the action of the Republican
convention, he would move that
Wyman be unanimously endorsed,
and that the convention adjourn until 3
o'clock to give the delegates an opportunity
of attending the other convention. The mo
tion was unanimously carried andthe dele
gates proceeded to Market hall.
The convention reassembled at
3 o'clock when speeches were the
order for a time. Then the
matter of nominating a candidate for
city comptroller was brought up and it fell
unanimously to Chas. E. Holt.
A committee was appointed, one from
each ward and one at large, to confer with
like committee from other organizations for
the purpose of selecting candidates for a

The Mysterious Prisoner.
Wm. Martin, the •'mysterious prisoner"
at the lockup, of whom particulars were given
in yesterday's Globe, was brought back to
Iowa yesterday by Sheriff Bowman. The
prisoner forged an order of $70 upon John
Paulis, a storekeeper at Elkader, Iowa, about
two years ago and then fled the state. This
is the second time within twoj weeks that a
prisoner has been taken out of this city be
fore it was found out by the vigilant scribes
of the morning papers. On the 26th of Feb
auary another criminal named George Ran
dall was brought to Dakota by Sheriff Hughes,
of Edmunds county, on the charge of steal
ing a gold watch valued at $150 from James
W. Long, of Ipswich, D. T. "The grand

The Coming Metropolis of the
To the Editor of the Globe:
Duluth, Feb. 29.—There is no possibility
to deny the fact that the head of Lake Supe
rior is the natural outlet of the northwestern
states and territories, a fact which has been
recognized by actual railroad corporations
doing business in the states of Wisconsin
and Minnesota, and they have now finally
determined upon Duluth at the head of Lake
Seperior as the place for the Grand Union de
pot, where traffic will be ex
changed between railroads and
also between railroads and navigation,
using the bay of the St. Louis for dockage
It was at one time thought that a dyke
would be built across the Superior or Duluth
bay, with dockage facilities attached, and for
that purpose the franchise was secured from
the state of Minnesota about five years ago,
but since that time the situation has so
changed that it is plainly visible that even
the three miles of dockage acquired by the
building of such dyke would not afford
sufficient facilities. The sugges
tion has accordingly been made
and determined upon, that the
Duluth bay should be left unobstructed and
opened to the great marine thoroughfare,
and that similar dvkes to the one contemplat
ed for the Duluth bay be built over the St.
Louis bay instead, parallel with one an
other, thereby affording one hundred miles
or more of dock fronts equally divided be
tween railroads building the same. The
Omaha, Northern Pacific and Manitoba roads
have secured the property known as south
Duluth, adjoining the St.*Louis on the south
side, for the purpose of depots and yard
room, from whence a bridge or dyke
is to be built at once, giving facilities for the
erection of large warehouses and elevators,
especially for the immediate accommodation
of the Omaha and Manitoba roads, the
Northern Pacific being otherwise provided
for the present. The St. Paul & Duluth, con
trolled by the Milwaukee & St. Paul, are also
making improvements which will add to
their already great facilities. Thus the ques
tion which has been agitated in the
west becomes settled, and the new
departure will provide an abundance
of room for all railroads which
are now built or to be built to the grand com
mercial center of the west.
The foregoing will explain the steps taken
by the citizens of Duluth in serving the
mayor and official editor of the city- with in
junctions to prevent the signing and pub
lishing of the ordinance disposing of the
Duluth bay franchise.
The railroad magnates are now busier
than ever in that district. The Duluth &
Iron Range is being pushed with great vigor.
It is expected to be ready for business about
the 1st of "September, the
company having secured large
tracts of lands at the northeast end of the
city, for the purpose of shops, depots and
yard room. The North Shore & Southwest
ern road is also said to be ready to begin
operation, having secured fifteen millions
of British capital for the purpose
of immediate construction and equip
ment. The construction of the Southwi-t
ern to Hinckley there to connect with the Bt
Cloud branch, heading for Redwood Fall-.
Sioux City and through Iowa. Nebraska and
Kansas is also an assured fact, bonuses hav
ing already bean voted by many
counties through which the road
passes. This road and the Omaha are i
cially of importance to Duluth, as they
destined to supply the provisions and other
supplies, to be used by the Immense popula
tion necessary to work the mineral and lum
ber resources of this section of the country.
Navigation is the grand avenue through
which Duluth has secured its enviable posi
tion. At times during the navigable season
the docks are lined with vessels of all sizos
and tonnage, sometimes twoorthree abreast.
To see vessels carrying from 4,000 to C,00()
bbls. of flour,from 2,000 to 2,200 tons of coal,
from 500,000 to 750,000 bushels of wheat or
corn, from 2,000 to 2.200 tons of merchan
dise of all kinds, destined for all the larger
towns and cities in the west, employing on
the docks from 2,000 to 3,000 men, is a
The jobing trade Is also growing very
rapidly affording grand facilities to whole
sale men to locate under favorable ausplci ■
with certainty of success, freight rates being
equal from New York or Buffalo to Duluth or
Chicago. To the milling business is partly
due Duluth's magic growth. Five years
ago the first lumber mills were
started, at which time the population was
about 2,000, since which the number of mills
has reached fifteen,andthe population between
17,000 to 18,000. The elevator capacity of
Duluth this year is being increased to seven
million bushels, and there is now even in
dication that next season will complete one,
if not two, flouring mills, after which the
flouring mills of the state, including those at
Minneapolis, will have to be removed there
also, as the distance and freight from the
wheat fields of the west is about equal to
Duluth or Minneapolis. The Duluth mills
will have the advantage of Minneapolis mills
of 30c per barrel, the cost of transporting to
the seaport, (Duluth) which makes a differ
ence in favor of Duluth of $900 per day for a
mill of 3,000 barrels capacity and cheap fuel,
besides being in a position to dispose of their
offals to better advantage, as this class of
goods do not admit of rail transportation.
The distance from Lake Superior to Chicago
being the same as from St. Paul and Minne
apolis, the Chicago & Northwestern,
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul will
enjoy the same traffic at the
same rate on flour during the winter as they
do now from Minneapolis. It Is then that
St. Paul and Minneapolis will enter the cloth
manufacturing business on a gigantic scale,
as the water power for that business will be
ample, and suitable buildings ready for util
ity easily acquired. It is then that our
St. Paul and Minneapolis population will
find occupation the year around as Is now
the case in England in similar branches.
The sheep growing industry of the west
will become of necessity greatly
increased having a good market
for their mutton and wool at their door, as It
were. It is then that the mechanic of the
west will find, for a period of a century at
least, employment at remunerative prices, as
the new departure will necessitate the con
struction of machinery suitable to that in
dustry. P. B.
TATTOOED BT NATURE.
A Tattooed Woman's Babe Marked Exactly
Like Its Mother.
[Baltimore Special Telegram to Inter-Ocean.]
Thursday morning last Laura Lavarnie,
known to the world as the "tattooed wom
an," gave birth in this city to a fifteen
pound baby boy. The remarkable thing
about the child was that it bore the same
marks, or tatooed figures on its skin as the
mother. The strangest part is that these
r_arks are identically the same as the moth
er's both as to position and color. The tat
tooing of the mother is in blue and red India
ink, and the marks on the baby are the same
colors, representing snakes, animals, flowers
and figures, all over the body except the
face. The father, Adolph Morath, has been
running a small museum in small towns in
this State and the West. He told your corre
spondent to-day that his wife had been tat
tooed within the past nine months. He has
traveled from place to place, and secured
men at each to do the job. It thus required
several weeks to complete the decoration,
and his wife was in a delicate condition
when it was finished. He had applied to the
husband of Dora Hildebrand, the original
tattooed woman, to do the Job, but he had
refused to create a rival to his wife. The
Morath family only arrived here on Monday
last, Mrs. Morath having retired from exhi
bition a few weeks ago. Dr. A. Trego Shert
zer, a well-known physician of this city, at
tended the mother and pronounced the case
the strangest in his experince. It has
created great interest among the medical
profession here. The Baltimore Dime Mu
seum has secured the mother and child for
exhibition, and both are doing well.
