The unprincipaled paragraphers of Pills
bury's orgns have devoted a deal of space to
relating the ridiculous lie, that R. P. Dun
nington called at John Everhard's tailor
shop to hire the rooms in the second story of
the block for the purpose of colonizing
Ames voters In the first place, the building,
as every one knows is only a single story
structure, and in the next place Mr. Dunning
ton has not attempted to rent any room for
any purpose whatever.
The park commission selected by the
Democrats is infinitely superior to the board
selected by the conference. It is a non-par
tizan board in the strightest sense, and every
fair minded Republican endorses the action
of the Democrats in lifting the board out of
the political mire into which it was plunged
by the Market hall conference. It will be
elected by an overwhelming majority.
Despite the frantic attempts of the Repub
lican strikers to exonerate George A. Pills
bury from all blame in the chamber of com

which cannot be denied that Pillsbury was
the chairman of the committee which awarded
the-contract, and he never submitted a pro
test against such award to the chamber.

The senseless lies which the Republican
organs are reiterating each day in alleging
that Mayor Ames or the Democratic party

The Catholic Total Abstinence Societies Hold
a Mass Meeting—Addresses of Bishop Ire
land, Father McGolrick, Fattier Shanley
The Catholic temperance societies held a
mass meeting in Market hail last night. The
hall was well filled by citizens, many politi
cians being among the number, evidently
with the idea that the meeting would eventu
ate in a political demonstration.
The speakers were escorted to the hall by
the Catholic temperance societies and a brass
band. The Crusaders were in full uniform.
Bishop Ireland, Father McGolrick, Father
Shanley, Father O'Riley, T. J. Coidgan, Geo.
A. Brackett and others occupied the platfo*m.
The baud played a selection and Father Mc-
Golrick called the meeting to order. He was
greeted with applause. He said the societies
had met for the purpose of stiengthenicg the
total abstinence societies and to increase the
facilities for the good word of the societies.
He spoke at considerable length on the gen
eral subject of temperance, and his remarks
were well received.

Dr. Hinch's Opinion of Our Mayor.
The following is from the pen of Dr.
Hineh, a representative German citizen and
editor of the Freie Presse, translated express
ly for the Globe :
Qi the Democratic candidate, Dr. Ames,
we know what to expect. We have never de
nied, that in certain cases, Dr. Ames might
have drawn the reigns tighter, in many in
stances it would have been wiser to have
chosen cne golden medium. Mr. Ames
knows and cordially acknowledged his short
comings, in his speech of acceptance, at the
convention, that he is not infallible, that he
earnestly meant to do what is right, but
might therein have erred at times. But Mr.
Ames is in our opinion the man,
that rightly comprehends that cities of
such rapid growth as Minneapolis
are accompanied by evils, that cannot be
entirely brought under the jurisdiction of tie
law, but must be put under the control of
the police, where they can do the least harm.
The Tri&Mrte,edited by the hypocrite Nettleton,
has howled for months past about our city
having so many houses of til-repute. As far
as we are concerned, we know not of one,
and most likely most of our readers are no
better informed. Mr. Nettleton, as an old
practitioner, is perhaps better posted. We
have been in other cities, where the evil is
crowded out of sight, the harm has been
much greater. All European cities have been
taught by experience that strict discipline is
the only right thing. We are pleased to see
that Dr. Ames is one of the intelligent class
of Americans, that do not, like the ostrich,
hide their heads in the sand, but one that
knows how to deal with the factors of a large

the rocks a stream of water, which flows
along for several rods aud then suddenly
disappears in a crevice.

The number of persons included in the bill

The senate then took up the education bill
and Hampton adO'essed the senate in its
favor. No one, he said, could have higher
appreciation than he of the heroic courage,
sublime fortitude, silent patience and un
flinching adherence to right, which his state
had manifested duriDg a time when bad men
were throttling her to death. But she had
secured hisr place again where she had once
been, among the great sisterhoods of free and
sovereign states. Knowing and appreciating
all this, he sympathized fully with the ringing
wotds in which his :o!league had recounted
the efforts of his state in the cause of educa
tion. He animadverted with great severity
on the "carpet bag" regime in South Caro
lina, characterizing it as a period in which
fraud, corruption, vice and crime ran
riot throughout the state. The pub
lic schools of the state, he said,
cost more than twice as much as the admin
stration of the state government, and those
schools were maintained also at much cost,
and were open to all alike 1, no distinction be
ing made on account of race or color. Might
he not ask what state could make a better
showing than South Carolina, under difficul
ties that might well have appalled the most
sanguine and courageous' As an instance
of a magnificent municipal achievement,
Hampton cited Charleston, which had spent
on its schools one-third more than the pros
perous and classic city of Boston, and did
this while pressed down with a debt of $5,
000,000. But after all this was told, and
after hearing all the facts, which have been
so ably and eloquently presented by his dis
tinguished colleague, he had been obliged to
come to a conclusion directly opposite to
that reached by his colleague, i He had no
doubt there were 250,000 children, between
the ages of ten and sixteen in the state, re
quiring education, and this could not be
g^veu them at a less cost than $5 per capita,
annually. This would involve an expendi
ture of $1,250,000. The amount thus far,
annually spent on schools had been $600,000
annualty. How was the state to raise the
increased sum, in her present exhausted
condition? In the face of all these facts, the
people of South Caroliua were authorized to
ask aid from the general government in be
half of those whom the government made
citizens, and adopted as its wards. No gov
ernment would discharge its duty to its citi
zens that did not secure to them an eduea
tion. In order that the destinies of this
grand republic should be properly directed,
we should see to it that the
ignorant and illiterate among our population
were prepared properly to assume the grave
responsibilities that rest upon them. Sena
tors had expressed a fear that the southern
stabs would not honestly apply the funds
granted. The charge he deemed, was un
worthy to be noticed by a southern man.
He would rely npon the statements of north
ern men, men whose words should have
weight before the senate, to show how un
founded the accusation was. Senator Hamp
ton then quoted from the reports and ad
dresses of Rev. Dr. Mayo, Boston, and Hon.
J. II. Smart, superintendent of public schools,
Indiana, testifying to the extraordinary
energy mid progress shown in tbe matter of
education in the south, Dr. Mayo saying:
Never within any ten years, within the
history of the world, had so heroic and per
sistent au effort been made for education,
as within the past ten ycors in the southern
states, and this effort included in its benefits
the chiluren of both races.
Senator Pugh supported the bill.
Senator Vest opposed it, and criticized the
statistics compiled from the census, which
had been furnished by Blair on a former oc
casion, to show the great extent of illiteracy,
which, the statistics, Vest said, seemed to in
clude children under five years, infants,
"mewling aud puking in their nurses arms."
He read from the figures quoted by Blair,
showing illiteracy of St. Louis, Chicago, and
other cities and denied they were correct.
Senator Call supported the measure on
Senator Harrison said, it seemed to be con
ceded, if there is any obligation existing for
the proposition of this bill, it was because of
the emancipation of the slaves. Yet we were
distributing this money ail ever the Union,
even to the States whose Senators told us
they were able to take care of their own chil
dren. We should apply the plaster to the
wound and not wrap up the whole body. He
would —ereiore make an amendment, that
aid should go only to States which should
have not less than 10 per cent, of illiteracy,
and prescribing that tbe State assessment for
education should not be lessened by reason
of any aid given by the bill.
After an executive session the Senate ad
T?/e House of Representatives.
Wasaingtox, March, 27.—The morning
hour was dispensed with. The house went
into committee of the whole, Dorsheimer in
the chair, on tbe bonded extension bill, and
Randall spoke in opposition to it. The pen
d'ng measure was of graver consequences
than any considered this season, and if any
gentleman supposed that only the parties
directly interested were watching the progress
ofthe bill,he would discover, when,perhaps too
late, he was ignorant of the sentiments and
wishes of the people. Legislation had been
in the direction of making the manufacture
of whisky in this country a mon
opoly. He said this with no
disrespect to the gentlemen engaged in the
production of whisky, but he considered this
monopoly a dangerous factor in the public
affairs. If he could relieve tbe distillers by a
repeal of the tax in toto, or by a partial re
peal, he would do so. What he feared from
the pending measure was it tended to make
a permanent internal revenue system. He
abhorred the system, and stood against its
continuance any longer than could be
helped, and any act of legislation likely to
perpetuate it, he felt it his
solemn duty to resist. Be regarded the bill
as class legislation. A similar reason for re
lief might be urged by any other business
and if the relief were right, and granted in
one case, why not in all. Believing the biU
to be wrong in principle, vicious in practice,
unwise in every respect, he had already re
sisted, even its discussion, for the reason
given, and for many others. He was more
anxious to reach a vote than to discuss the
Mr. Blackburn, in making the closing ar
gument in support of the bill, deprecated any
discussion founded in prejudice on the one
hand or sympathy on the other. He did not
think the speeches in opposition had been
entirely fair. The gentlemen bad sought to
invade the sacred precincts of the committee
room and give to the house their crude ideas,
couched in suspicion, as to how the bid ever
came before the house. Pictures have beeu
drawn of the minority picking it up in their
arms and bringing it into the house in the
face of the opposition majority. If the gen
tleman from Arkansas, Dunn, was familiar
with the rules, he need not be
reminded that gentlemen should not in
vade' the committee room. The record
showed that the bit' came here fairly. The
chairman of the committee o' ways and
means was the one, on whom, ii any one,
criticism would fall. He had reported the
bill, saying he was instructed to do so. He
had said it was not a unanimous report,
though there was no minority report, but
that there was a letter of instructions the
committee had given him, and he hoped no
one would De prejudiced by these feelings
which an unwarranted suspicion had prompt
ed. Passingjthen to more direct advocacy of
the bill, he argued in common justice and
fairness, congress should grant the relief
asked for. The government would not
lose a single penny, and its financial
condition was such, it did not need the mon
ey involved, and he submitted to business
men, to practical law makers, that no ob
jection could be reasonably lodged against
♦he petition of those people. It had been
said the passage of the bill would result in
the repeal of the internal revenne system.
The gentleman from New York, Hewitt, no
doubt spoke from his honest convictions,
but he spoke for himself alorfe, and no other
man who spoke in support of the measure had
views similliar to that. The fear that the tax
would be repealed had led certain gentlemen
to approve the bill. What was the power
they were afraid of? The congress of the
United States. The tax would never
be remitted unless it were done by
the men who sat here. He could not see
why the bill should be rejected, except at the
instance of prejudice and fanaticism.
Would the government force the maker of
whisky to export his goods? Who would be
benefited? The larger holders, who had cap
ital to meet the expenses of transportation,
whl'ethe poor and small holder would bo
come the victim of a forced sale. Was there
fairness or logic iu that proposition? He was
no advocate of the repeal of the internal
revense system. There had never been an
anathema or curse against that system which
had been too bitter for him to repeat, but it
was here, and it was a choice between the
evils, whether he would repeal that
system or vote to revise the tariff.
He was not an advocate of free whisky, he
was not an advocate of that policy, which
would flood the American market with cheap
whisky, in order that the country might be
treated to whisky at live cents a drink and
salt and sugar fifty cents a pound. The gen
tleman from Pennsylvania, Randall, had
said the course of whisky legislation had been
in the interest of monopoly, and that he op
posed it because it was a monopoly. He,
Blackburn, had since thanked God, that with
the aid of a search warrant, there was at
least discovered one monopoly of which
the gentleman was not the champion.
He was delighted to find there
was one thing which secured the gentleman's
opposition to monopoly. Possibly it was ex
plained on the ground that it was not located
in the gentleman's section. Monopoly in
deed! If this bill were rejected, the only
measure of protection which the distillers
would secure, would be that protection which
would be found in seeking aid from foreign
goyernments, which their own refused to
acceed to them. He did not believe it went
far enough; he did not think that any period
of limitation should be fixed at all. The
representatives of the whisky interests had
come to congress, setting forth an honest
case, and asking, on a fair and honest busi
ness principle, to get relief. They might be
driven away, but he thanked God
they would go as they cante,
clean handed, the searching suspicions of the
gentleman in opposition, to the contrary,
notwithstanding. He knew that in the last
congress Kelly, Randall, Herbert, Blount and
Dunn had not been opponents of the bfl.l.
Mr. Blount—"The gentleman mistakes as
Mr. Blackburn—"Did you vote against the
unlimited extension bill?
Mr. Blount —"I have not examined the
Mr. Blackburn—"And I have, and that is
Mr. Dunn—"My views have never
Mr. Blackburn said he did not object to
gentlemen changing their views ou great
national policy. He knew they had dom;
it from the best of motives, but he
submitted that the line should be drawn
somewhere, and the gentlemen should not
set themselves up to shape and fashion the
laws and sentiments of congress, who shifted
theirjeonvictions on questions of national
policy with the same apparent facility, if not
frequency, that they were supposed to change
Blackburn's speech was listened to with
great attention, aud at the conclusion he was
warmly applauded by his party of associates.
The geueral debate having ended Mr..
Blount moved to strike out the enactiu^
clause of the bill, which was agreed to by 131
to 87. The committee then rose and reported
its action to the house, when it was con
firmed. Yeas 185; nays 83; as follows.

The whisky bill being disposed ot, there
was a general rush to secure the precedence
for the consideration of other measures on

THE SAGE OF UTICA.
His Views on Polities—Tilden the Best
Man for President.
New Yokk, March 27.— The Mail and Ex
press has hud an interview with ex-Governor
Horatio Seymour, on the political situation.
He expresses the opinion, that a longer con
tinuance of the protective tariff may provoke
retaliatory legislation on the part of England
and other European nations. As to the
presidential candidates, he expressed the
opinion that the nomination of Tilden would
be wise for the Democracy. The followiug
questions and answers give the
gist of the interview in this
Question. "And you do not believe Mr.
Tilden to feeble too" perform the duties of
Answer. "Well, they say he can't talk.
Now, that is a. positive advantage. No man
was ever yet hurt by what he did not say.
What we want in the presidential chair are
men who think more and talk less. A man
should have his tongue cut off when he en
ters the White house as president."
Q. "Then the difficulty of speech is to
commend Mr. Tilden as a presidential can
A. "No, not solely. They say Mr. Til
den is so much in ill-health that lie is prac
tically useless as a presiuential candidate. I
tell you, ill-health is another advantage. If
Mr."T»lden, in ill-health, should be presi
dent, his Infirmity would prove a protection
against the throngs of men who want some

Gov. Seymour, but he said:
"I speak about this in all earnestness. If a
man is knowu to be feeble, the fact is a pro
tection agaiust intrusions, and besides all,
Mr. Tilden has a wide experience iu public
life aud au aquaintance with questions aud
affairs which a president must deal with."
Q. —"You have seen the proposition of a
New York paper that the Democratic nomina
tion shall be tendered to Mr. Tilden, and
that the convention shall theu await his
pleasure to decline or accept."
A.—"Yes, I have seeu that suggestion."
Q. —Aud what is your judgment'"
A.—"That in case Mr. Tilden declined
the man who accepted the nomination would
be very much embarrassed by having been
made the second choice."
SHERIFF DAVIDSON IN* COURT.
New York, March '27.— Sheriff Davidson
was in the court of oyer and terminer to-day
to plead to the indictments for extortion and
grand larceny. The counsel said the sheriff

The ease went over to allow the district at

New York. March 27. —The movement on
the part of the friends of Carl Schurz to raise
him a testimonial of $100,000, has been aban
doned at the request of Mr. Schurz. A con
siderable portion of the sum had already been
paid into the fund, and without doubt the
full amount would have been raised. The
mattercoming to Schurz's knowledge, he re
quested that the money should be returned
to the subscribers, and out of regard to his
feelings this has been clone. The following
letter from the ex-secrctary expresses his
45 East Sixtt-Eighth Stkf.et, Friday,
March 21, 1889 —To My Dear Mr. Schwab:
I sa* in the Tribune, only late this afternoon,
and found in it a statement that some of
my friends were engaged in raising a fund
of $100,000 to be presented to me. Upon
further inquiry I learn that you are the
treasurer of the committee organized for
that purpose, and that a very considerable
part of the sum named is already available.
Let me confess to you, that this matter is
very embarrassing to me, not as though 1
were in doubt as to the general Hue of con
duct to follow, but because I should be ex
ceedrogly sorry in obeying my im
pulse to do anything that might,
iu the least be liable to
be interpreted as a want of appreciation on
my part of the generous motives of my
frieuds, who prepared this valuable surprise
for me. Let me assure you, 1 esteem it a
great honor to have such friends, and I am
proud of being thought by them worthy of
such a reward. Nobody eau aupreciatc this
more thau I do, at the same time, I feel a3
if, while I am able to work, I could uot
accept such sums without g'viug a
proper equivalent for them. This may
be merely a matter of feeling
but as such it is of great importance to the
person concerned. To this feeling I should
have given decided expression had I been
cons—ted when this enterprise was bfgnn. I
consider it, therefore, proper, before any for
mal presentation is made to me, to ask,
through you, my friends to forgive ine if,
with the highest possible appreciation of theii
geueruus sentiments, I feel obliged to decline
in advance this valuable sign Of their friend
ship aud esteem, so that no further steps be
taken. Aud I Wish to say further, that ]
shall be indebted to you, dear Mr. Schwab, 11
you will kindly return to tne respective con
tributors the various sum* paid into the fuud.
I am, cordially aud gratefully, your friend.
