Tiie Waite Comedy Company Again.
It seems that the manager of this company
misappreciatedthe character of the people of
Mankato, and fancied he could run bis
cheap company on Sabbath evening as well
as upon week days. The attendance upon
tbe two evenings he did play was so much
larger than the character of his company
warranted that be fancied the people
of Mankato were "stuck" on
his show and would jump
at tbe chance to turn out again on Sunday
night. It seems that he made an arrange
ment with the management of the opera
house to give a sacred concert upon that even
ing, and thus occupy the house. The sur
prise and indiguation of the citizens and
managers of the building may be imagined
better than described when, upon leaving the
house Saturday night, after the close of the
"French Spy," to have thrust in their hands
a bill announcing that the company would
make a final appearance upon Sunday even
ing in "Ingemar,theMan of the Wilderness,"
the cast of characters, and a brief synopsis of
the play following.
The company did not, however, appear as
advertised as the manager was informed that
the citizens would not tolerate it or the au
thorities allow it.
Doubtless Mr. Waite fancied he was in
Chicago, Denver or some other center of
wickedness, where everybody would as lief
go to a theater as to go to church. Perhaps
he thought that this innovation npon com
mon custom would be hailed with delight by
the inhabitauts of Mankato. It is safe to say
though that he will not attempt his "Sunday
cyciiing sacred concert" dodge again iu
Mankato. He will no doubt hereafter simu
late that respect for the Christian Sabbath
which he evidently does not feel. Mankato
is a thriving, flourishing city, and may not
be quite so Godly a city as it ought to be, but
she is not ready for a Sunday night theater
yet, and Mr Waite made a grand mistake.
They Bounced the Foreman.
Shortly before 0 o'clock on Saturday after
noon, a wire cable, attached to a derrick, at
the stoue quarry of "W. B. Craig & Co.,

bestowed particular attention upon one of
the workmen named Nels Bengland. It
played a number of festive pranks with his
anatomy, carressing his head, caroming
upon his left arm, and encircling his right
leg, iu each instance leaving ample token of
its touch. The services of Dr. Livingston
were brought into requisition,and his wounds
attended to, which are not deemed danger
ous. It has been learned since that the men
consider the accident the fault of the fore
man, aud have determined to have him dis
Yesterday morning the men under this par
ticular foreman to the number of twenty
formed at tbe quarry and marched in a body
to the residence of Mr. Craig and formally
entered complaint, asserting that they were
uot disposed to work longer under him. It
is understood that Mr. Craig very properly
di tided to remove the foreman, and the men
returned to work.

| Special Telegram to the Globe.l
Washington, April 7. —The long-impend
ing struggle on Mr. Converse's proposition to
restore tbe duty on wool was settled definite
ly to-day and sets at rest the question affect
ing that portion of tariff legislation. The
victory is very decided for the friends of the
Morrison bill, who are rejoiced not only that
the bill failed to receive the two-thirds vote
necessary to suspend the rules, but lacked
even eight votes of a majority. It was notable
that Henderson, Republican, of Iowa, who
originally voted aye, changed to nay, before
the result was announced. While the
vote was not strictly a party one, the
larger proportion was Republican. This de
feat necessarily intensifies the feeling be
tween the Randall and Morrison wings on
tariff legislation, but does not necessarily
test the strength of horizontal reduction of
the tariff, as provided in the Morrison bill.
Hurd's speech agaiust the bill was carefully
prepared and handsomely delivered, and but
for the fact that the debate was limited to
thirty minutes on both sides, other interest
ing speeches would have been made. The
friends of the bill fully expected to obtain a
majority vote, but understood fully the im
possibility of securing the necessary two
thirds, and the motion to suspend the rules
aud pass the bill was intended only to test
the sense of the house.
Mr. Nelson is much disappointed at his
failure to obtain the necessary two-thirds to
suspend the rules and pass his bill reported
from the Indian Affairs committee, to make
a treaty with the Chippewas, to extinguish
title to the Red Lake reservation in Minne
sota, provide lands in severalty for the In
dians, sell all pine lands on stumpage and
open the balance to homestead settlement at
fifty cents per acre, payable in four annual
installments. Mr. Nelson made a noble
presentation of the provisions,
of the bill, and was closelv interrogated by
Messrs, Blount, of Georgia, aud "Warner, of
Ohio. Mr. Washburn made an effective ap
peal, setting forth the necessity of opening
to settlement the large acreage now occupied
by the Indians on Minnesota reservations,
and while urging that the bill was a stop in
the right direction, advocated the passage of
a general measure looking to the removal of
Minnesota Indians elsewhere. The bill was
in a fair way of passage,when Holman made
suggestions of amendments,which, requiring
unanimous consent,were objected to. There
upon Belmont made a savage attack on the
bill, insisting that it was changing the policy
of the government in like matters and charg
ing that the Indians, upon the expiration of
the limitation of twenty years to hold in
severalty, would be despoited of their homes
by greedy speculators. An effort was un
successfully made to extend the debate, and
the vote being pressed there were ayes 97,
nays 71. Failing to receive the necessary
two-thirds the passage of the bill
failed. Nelson deserves much credit
for his efforts on behalf of the
measure. But he was not adequately
supposed by the members of the Indian com
mittee. Washburn did his best, but there
was au evident determinatiou to defeat the
bill at this time.
TIIE TAX OX WHISKY.
The resolution offered by Thompson,of Ken
tucky, declaring it unwise and inexpedient
to reduce the tax on whisky, and which
passed by 179 to 33, settles the whisky ques
tion to tbe extent that holders of whisky in
bond can possibly borrow money to liquidate
the tax or export the same as they may elect.
The difficulty heretofore has beeu that banks
advancing loans on whisky in bond
were alarmed lest the whisky tax would be
reduced or the internal revenue system abol
ished. This has also interfered with the ex
portation of whisky, which goes out under
the law free of tax. The pronounced vote
was a surprise, especially to parties advocat
ing the reduction or abolition of the internal
revenue tax. As the matter stands the re
duction of surplus revenue must be had from
customs dues, aud this strengthens some
what the Morrison bill.

A NATIONAL BANKRUPT LAW.
A strong effort is being made by the busi
ness organizations of the country to persuade
congress to pass a national bankrupt law.
The bill uow before -congress for this purpose
is the result of a good deal of careful study
by men who have given the subject a
great deal of thought and have had
long legal experience. A series of argu
ments in favor of the enactment of such a
law has been presented to members in pam
phlet form. Here are some of the reasons
which are urged in favor of the passage of
such a law. The constitution expressly
provides for the establishment of a na
tional and uniform system of bank
ruptcy. A uniform aud just
national bankrupt law is essential for the
well being of a commercial nation. The
credit system, which underlies our commer
cial transactions, alone finds security in a
uniform law for the equitable distribution of
the estates of insolvent debtors. A protection
of the credit system will make lower
prices, as risky credits must cause
high prices. The increasing commerce be-

tween citizens of various states gives greater
need for a uniform system of this nature.
The state laws upon this subject differ so
greatly that they cannot be relied upon in a
general inter-state business. A commer
cial nation should protect foreign creditors
in dealing with its citizens, and give
them one law upon which they can rely, in
stead of thirty eight unreliable state laws as
now exist. The present law3 breed roguery,
promote perjury and place a premium upon
fraud. The failures in the United States in
creased from $65,000,000 in 1880 to $173,
000,000 in 1883, largely because of tbe in
efficiency of the state systems of bankruptcy.
The senate is still in session on the edu
cational bill, so as to reach a vote and take
up naval appropriations to-morrow. The
chances largely favor the passage of the bill.

The Supreme Court Decides What a
Traveler 3Iay Import Free.
Washington, April 7.—A question of con
siderable interest to travelers returning from
abroad, namely, what constitutes "wearing
apparel in actual use," which by law is ex
empted from duty, was decided by the su
preme court of the United States to-day.
Wm. Astor, plaintiff in error, a citizen of
the United States", arrived home from a visit
to Europe in the end of September with his
family, by a vessel, and brought with him
wearing apparrel bought there, for his and
their use, to be worn here during the season
then approaching, not excessive in quantity
for persons of their means, habits and station
in life, and their ordinary outfit for winter.
A part of the articles had not been worn, and
the duties were exacted on all these articles.
This the court holds, under section 2,505 of
the revised statutes, exempting from duty
"wearing apparel in actual use and other
personal effects not merchandise." The
proper rule to be applied was to exempt from
duty such articles as fulfilled the following
conditions. First, wearing apparel owned
by the passengers and in a condition to be
worn at once, without further manufacture.
Second, brought with him as a passenger and
intended for use or wear by himself or his
family who accompanied him as passengers,
and not for sale or purchase, or Imported for
other persons, or to be given away. Third.
suitable for tbe season of the year which was
immediately approaching at the time
of arrival ; and Fourth, not ex
ceeding in quantity, quality or value
what the passenger is in the habit of ordi
narily providing for himself and his family
at that time, and keeping on hand for his
wants in view of their means, habits and
station in life, even though such articles had
not been actually worn. Judgment of the
circuit court was reversed, and the case re
manded with instructions to award a new
trial. The chief justice announced tbe court
would adjourn for the term ou the first Mon
day in May, and would hear no more argu
ments after April 25.

A Tough Character.
About 5 o'clock yesterday evening Detec
tive Tloy and Officer Quiulan arrested in
South Minneapolis a man named Frank
Anderson on tbe charge of shooting a banker
and sheriff at Superior City,
Wis., a year ago last fall. He was
discovered at the boarding house of Anderson
on Third street south between Twelfth and
Thirteenth avenues, aud Anderson has left
for the woods, but his friend was left
behind. Yesterday Anderson returned to
the boarding house, and was seen by Officer
Quinlan, who immediately apprised Defec
tive Hoy, and both officers arrested him while
lie was drinking in a saloou. The prisoner
resisted, and attempted to use a revolver and
a knife, but was overpowered and was placed
in the city prison, where he was visited
last night by a Globe reporter. The
prisoner absolutely refused any information
whatever, but saicl he had come from Mon
tana, where he had been working on a rail
road. Anderson was among a gang of
burglars, who entered the bank at Superior
City at the time aforementioned, and took
therefrom a large 6um of money. The
burglars were pursued by a
posse of officers,and one of the gang was shot
and one arrested. Anderson shot the banker
at the time of the robbery, and shot the sher
iff at the time his partner was arrested. He
is about twenty-eight years old, and stands
six feet in his stockings.

Yellow pine seems to be steadily growing
in favor. Each year of the last three or four
has seen a steady increase in the amount
used in this city (Chicago). Among many
cases of its use the following are among the
most prominent: The new board of trade
building will require 200,000 feet of yellow
pine flooring. The new panorama building
on Wabash avenue will be finished entirely
in this wood. The quarters of the board of
education in the new city hall will require
about 30,000 feet of yellow pine flooring
also. The five public schools to be erected
this year will have all of their wood work
made of this southern rival to the northern
king of woods.

THt "FUNERAL MARCH."
The New York Sun Talks Interest

pects in Cereals.
Eascality, Dishonesty and Swindling In
Speculation Part of the Cause of
["Special Telegram to the Globe.]
New York, April 7.—The Sun says in its
Wail street column to-day. The continued
fall of prices in the Chicago mraket was the
all—absorbing topic of interest among finan
ciers and stock operators last week. They
seemed to have given up their own business
for a time and to have devoted all
their attention to grain quotations. Tha
stormy weather which several times inter
fered with the working of the telegraph
wires rendered the excitement still more
intense. Orders and return reports of
purchases and sales could sometimes
not be transmitted for two hours.
Meanwhile prices fluctuated with an alarm
ing rapidity. The deep invest in Chicago
affairs was evinced not only by those who
speculate in grain and provisions, but by
everybody who has anything at all to
do with wall street. The leading Chicago
speculators believed that as soon as the "fu
neral march" was played out everything
would "bob up serenely," and that April
would bring with it cheaper freight rates on
export demand and improved prices.
They spread this belief all
over the country, and the
farmer took it up as readily as the banker
or the financial editor. It began even to be
argued among the latter two classes of men
that the gold exports were the best thing that
could have happened, as a point would soon be
reached at which grain and provisions would
be forced to take the place of gold. All [this
proved to be nonsense, of course. Freight
rates have been cut iu two, wheat went
down nearly 30 cents a bushel, . yet
gold continues to be exported, while
grain ami provisions still remain without de
mand. The "funeral march" is being play
ed still louder in April, and in all appearan
ces will be played louder still in May. It is
just as well to put aside the illusions to look
the future right iu its disagreeable
face. Our wild grain speculation and the
constant efforts of lighter Ethiopean markets
have caused Europe to look for supplies
elsewhere. To-day the English and French
grain merchants buy futures in Russia and
India and go short against them in the
New York and Chicago markets. It is hard
to believe, but it is nevertheless a fact that
there is at the present moment a foreign
short interest of ovct 2,000,000 bushels
iu our market. Of course, the won
derful change in tbe eoudition of
tbe grain market could not have occurred
but for the immense railroad progress made
by India, Russia and Australia, but progress
was not the work of a few weeks. It took
years to build up the roads which
now briug to the seaboard at almost
nominal rates all tbe wheat grown in the in
terior of these vast continents. One hears
now on every side the question: "Butwhen
is this liquidation to stop?" The question
is not au easy oue to answer.
But it certainly looks as if the process must
continue until we bring our products to the
prices of other countries, aud until
we reform our system of corporate
institutions so as to inspire some
confidence in their management. It is
evident that when money is a drug at 1J4
per cent., and 7 per cent, dividend paying
stocks like tbe Union Pacific and the St. Paul,
for instance, are selling at 70 and 80 cents
on the dollar, there must be something rot
ten in the very foundation of the system.
When all the speculative and swindling
directors are put out of office, when honest
reports of the working of the companies
are regularly printed aud when divi
dends are reduced to the strict basis of
the earning capabilities of the roads,
we shall possibly get foreigu money again,
and if we remain still unable to export
wheat, we may be able to export stocks and
bonds again. Those who are anxious
to find out what the bottom prices
are likely to be for grain in
Chicago will probably not make a great mis
take if they put down wheat for 70c, corn for
40c and oats for 20c. The great mass of
sales made within the last three weeks were
mostly genuine sales of actual property.
Speculative short sales were indulged in
principally in New York, the Chica
goans being naturally bulls,
aud it is not unpleasant to state that New
York has hardly beaten Chicago this time.
The peculiar beauty of the game was that the
fluctuations were so rapid that the covering
could often be done within a few hours of
the sale. The consequence was that there
was never any large short interest outstand
ing and no danger of squeezes.
THE JEANNETTE INQUIRY.
Fireman Bartlett Continues His Testi-
Washington*, April 7.—Fireman Bartlett
of the Jeannette resumed his testimony before
the committee this morning. He was under
arrest for insubordinating when he went be
fore the board of inquiry, and this prevented
his giving full answers, ne did uot suppr^p
auy facts before tbe court of inquiry, but the
questions submitted by Collins, and ruled
out, would have thrown light ou the subject.
He, to a certain extent, had been afraid of
persecution from the navy department,
and feared the facts in regard to
his arrest would be brought
about. He knows facts reflecting on the
honor of Melville and Danenhower, but
knew nothing reflecting on their humanity.
Tbe facts affecting their houor did not, in his
judgment, have auy bearing on the result of
the expedition, they consisting in setting a
bad example to the men by intoxication.
Witness himself had drank with Melville.
He was also aware of facts re
flecting on the conduct of all
the survivors of the expedition, himself
included, aud never knew Collins to be un
der the influence of liquor. He understood
it was a general thing for the officers to make
game of Collin?. Did not know any man
on the Jeannette being subjected to any out
rage or indignity. I met Gilder and Jack
son, correspondents of the Herald, at Greo
movialocve. After Melville heard of them
he said to witness: "Keep a damned close
mouth, for there's a damned reporter after
us." The reason for Melville
saying this he did not know.
Melville made a similar remark to him and
Noras afterwards. The survivors, though
within six days journey of where DeLong and
party were found, remained inactive for
three months before organizing a relief ex
pedition to search for their missing com
rades. Ninderman, a seaman on the Jean
nette, was next examined, but nothing new
was elicited. Adjourned.
Le Sueur Election.
[Special telegram to the Globe.]
Le Sueur, Minn., April 7.—The municipal
election held to-day called out the largest
vote ever polled at a town election here, and
although considerable excitement and inter
est was manifested, everything was quiet and
orderly. The entire ticket placed in nomi
nation on a platform condemning the course
of Jas. J. Green, editor of the Sentinel, in
advertising this city as the abode of gamblers
and outlaws was elected by a large majority,
372 votes being poUed. F. A. Borer was
elected mayor by 100 majority; G. M. Tow

Hewitt, treasurer by 37 majo%r; Wm. San

borough attorney by 42 majority: and John
Taylor justice of the peace by 17 majority.

That there are not more accidents on the
lake shore, is certainly due more to good luck
than caution on the part of the numerous
lads one sees prowling about the logs and
other perilous places to which it is possible to
gain access. In most cases when these boys
leave home in the morning their whereabouts
is unknown to their parents until young
hopeful reports at meal time.
The fate of young Keane is yet undecided,
although there is scarcely a shadow of doubt
that the boy came to his death in the manner
as described in the Globe of yesterday. His
two companions adhere firmly to their state
ment of last seeing the missing lad on the
trestle work on the Milwaukee road. An
unavailing search for the body has been go
ing on for the past two days. There is good
reasons for supposing that the remains of
the unfortunate boy have been carried under
the logs by the under current, which accounts
for the unsatisfactory results of the search of
the two past days.

the telegraph fire alarm cannot be recorded

or Philomatbean club, as it is called, which
has been formed a short time in the city, is
to hold its second meeting in the Opera hall.
Mrs. Bradford, niece of the Kev. Dr. Carroll
a lady of marked ability and a great favorite
with the citizens, ha^ chosen "Literary Tril

support. By all means let all who can—and
it is free for all—attend to-night, and you
will go home at the close pleased aud profited.
Yesterday, Editor O'Brien, of the Daily
Sun: was strutting around as proud as a pea
cock, aud no wonder, as on Saturday even
ing he had been made the recipient of a
beautiful gold watch, costing some $350. and
which he bad received from his friends and
admirers In the city for his faithful discharge
of his duties. It is not often that newspaper
men are treated so handsomely. It sei m
that during the past couple of months, Mr.
O'Brien has advocated, persistently and fear
lessly, the high license measure, which was
carried last week with such a large majority,
aud the people of the city, irrespective of po
litical creed, conceived the laudable idea of
presenting the oue to whom that success was
owing more than to any other some token of
their appreciation. They placed the amount
of subscription at such a figure that all should
have a share, though many wished to con
tribute many times more than would be ac
cepted. The watch is a beauty, of Best-class
workmanship, and with an appropriate in
scription. He feels that his services have
been appreciated, and esteems the gift highly.
Long may he be able to wear it.

Fargo, April 7. —The supporters of the
successful Yerxa ticket at tbe municipal elec
