standpoint of securing votes it is an emi

on the part of the committee. The argument
will also be raised from this action that the
more wealthy saloon men are uniting to
crush out the financially weak men in that
business, and that the moral reform element
is being overlooked. The Globe regrets to
say that the bright prospects of the inception
of the movement have not been verified by

ENGLISH TEMPERANCE REFORM.
Some statistics have lately been given
which show that in'thls country we expend
on drink annually 6ome $900,000,000, and
that in England the annual expense for the
same article i3 less than §700,000,000. This
is a satisfactory showing in at least one re-
spect, and tbat is, that we are not to be out
done by the Britishers in the industry of
drinking whisky. It is also shown that in
Great Britain, the amount spent for "booze"
is yearly growing smaller, while it is increas
ing in this country. This may be owing to
the fact that Immigration to this
country from thc old world is on the
increase. Possibly a large share of the Brit
ish tipplers and drunkards are being shipped
to the United States. We know that there Is
mucb complaint that paupers are being sent
here by the English authorities, and it is well
known that the words pauper and drunkard
are often synonomous. Our annual bill for
tippling may perhaps be explained then on
the gronnd that British drunkards are coming
hither, and that, and by this means the an
nual consumption of spirits in Great Britian
is decreasing. Possibly they manage
things over there better tban we
do here, witb reference to the Dro
vention of drunkenness. Lately in
London there has been a violent controversy
over a proposal to give dinners to poor
children. A Mr. Ba met, who spends most
of his time in ministering to the poor of the
cast end of the English metropolis, and who
may be supposed to know wbat is needed by
the Indigent, strongly opposes the proposed
free dinners to pauperized children. He
thinks that the cry of hungry children should
not be heeded, for thc reason that it may re
strain the fathers from drink. Here
may be another reason why
the consumption of intoxicating liquors is
decreasing in Great Britain. The starving
children of the drunkard are allowed to go
hungry 60 that their clamor may induce
tbeir parents to spend more for bread and
less for whisky. That method of reform has
not been thought of over here, and it may be
that because we have not thought of it, and
adopted it, drunkenness is on the increase
among us. Fortuuatcly the English secret
of temperance reform is now divulged, and
it will be the fault of our philanthropists
if the humiliating ' condition con
tinues, in wbich this country is increasing
its crop of inebriates every year, while that of
our English rival is growing less. In resort
ing to this method of reforming tbe fathers
bv Rt.nrvins- the children, some additional
means to the same end will be suggested,
thus, there sbould be rigid legislation against
drinking by any person save those whohave
families, because in the case of men without
wives or children, there can be no method of
reaching them under this new system.
Drunkards should be encouraged to
have as many children as possible
so that their cry may be great when
they demand bread. Tbe more clamorous
the cry for bread thc more likely is it that it
will be heard. It is a pretty tough old soak
who will not listen wben he baa a dozen or a
score of his own starving chicks calling after
bim for needed sustenance. The principle
involved is something like that adopted in
some countries in wbich there are dangerous
wild animals. A kid is selected, one taken
fresh from the side of the
mother is preferred, and carried out
in the forest and fastened to a stake in some
lonely placo. Then the little thing, after a
little begins to bleat in its terror and its
hunger whereby tbe attention of the beasts
of prey is attracted. Tbey come, they pounce
ou it, they rend its throat and drink its
blood, and are 6hot in the midst of their
feast by the ambuscaded hunters. The sys
tem is one wbicb tends to rid a country of
beasts of prey and drunkards but it is a litttle
bard on the kids.
PROPOSED DEMOCRATIC CONFER
An effort is alleged to be being made to
bold a preliminary meeting of prominent
Democrats, from the different sections of the
Union, prior to tbc assembling of the Demo
cratic convention at Chicago in July, to ar
range a platform for the Presidential cam
paign and to designate a candidate to be
placed upon it. Such a fore-stalling confer
ence would be an impertinence,showing a dis
trust of the wisdom, capability and patriot
ism of the National convention, whose dele
gates are yet to be chosen. The National
convention may be safely left to discharge
its proper duties without impertinent inter
ference. Sucb a conference will be as mal
apropos as thc ridiculous "old gentlemen's
convention" on the eve of the rebellion, and
as useless, if not as harmless. Two conven
tions artt not needed to put a candidate in
the field, and will be more hkely to produce
discord than harmony.
It is not to be supposed that a self-consti
tuted conference will be more likely to era
body the wisdom and patriotism of the party,
than the convention officially chosen to pre
pare the work of the campaign.
Thc convention itself should be trusted to
present a platform which will quiet all fac
tions, secure harmonious action, and a cer
tainty of success. The Baltimore American ie
authority for the statement that such a con
ference is in contemplation. Accordlngjto
that oracle tbe meeting is to be held at the
Mount Vernon hotel in the city of Balti
more, that place being designated as a half
way Iiouse between the north and south, and
on account of its nearness to Washington.
The alleged object of the conference is to
perfect a harmonious understanding upon
important points of difference within the
party. An array ofthe names of tbose expect
ed to participate contains among the number
thc following: Samuel J. Tilden, Henry B.
Payne, of Ohio; SamuelJ. Randall, of Penn
sylvania; the Hon, John G. Carlisle, Abram
S. Hewitt, ex-United States Senator McDon
ald, of Indiana; Senators Gibson, of Louisi
ana; Bayard, of Delaware; Voorhees, of In
diana; Vest, of Missouri; Gorman, of Mary
land; Camden, of West Virginia; Vanoo, of
j North Carolina, and Lamar, of Mississippi;
THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, SATURDAY MORXIXG, APRIL 12, 1884.
ex-Senator John B. Gordon, of Georgia;
Henry Watterson, of Kentucky; Frank Hurd,
of Ohio; Congressman Morrison, of Illiniois,
and Charles A. Dana, of New York.
It ls alleged that this meeting has been ar
ranged by prominent men of New York and
Pennsylvania and that nothing will be left
undone to effect an "undivided platform''
The American Itself thinks this advance con
ference will be in the nature of a side-show
and that the national convention will be able
to construct a platform "which will meet tbe
approval of the citizens of the United States."
The professed object of the proposed Confer
ence is perhaps commendable but the pro
posal to usurp, and do the work of the con
vention proper, cannot but be mischevious
and not beneficial. Such a conference could
only tend to widen the difficulties, if such ex
ist, which its proposed object is to heal. If
there 13 any differences in the party which
the work of the convention, by its nomina
tion and its platform cannot allay, certainly
an outside, self-appointed advisory body can
do it. On a better view tbe contemplated
conference will doubtless be abandoned.
The convention will be composed of repre
sentative men of wisdom, ability, experience,
and patriotism, whose work will be so care
fully prepared, and so just to all sections and
interests, as to command the undivided at
tention and unanimous and enthusiastic sup
port of the whole party, and as a result, en
sure triumphant victory. Disorganizing
mar-plots must find no tolerance in a mo
mentous crisis like that which is now upon
us, when the blighting waves of official and
partisan corruption that are overspreading
the land are to be beaten backward.
THE STRONGEST CANDIDATE.
The Democratic current from all informa
tion from every section is certainly running
heavily, and with increasing volume in favor
of Mr. Tilden as a Presidential candidate.
He is confessedly the strongest man, but is
also admitted by Republicans to be the most
formidable antagonist that can be selected
for them to compete with in thc Presidential
race. His nomination will be sure to carry
an election. He will certainly carry New
York, a majority, if not all of the doubtful
states, and in addition every other state
claimed by the Democracy. This makes
the result sure. The question Is, shall the
Democracy throw away a certainty for an
uncertainty. The views of Horatio Seymour
recently published in the Globe strengthen
the current in favor of Mr. Tilden, and if his
health and strength are as good in July as
now, wisdom and policy and poetic justice
dictate but one courso, and that, his unani
mous nomination by acclamation. There is
scarce a doubt, thatVuch will be the result.
A Washington correspondent to the New
York Herald presents some intelligent and
well considered views in regard to Mr. Tilden
and the feeling towards him in the party
which jlth of the highest Interest. If the
views and statements of tbis correspondent
are correct, and there can be no reasonable
doubt of it, Mr. Tilden will have uo antagon
ist in the July convention, and will be elec
ted by an overwhelming majority of the peo
ple, and in the electoral college as well. No
7 by 8 can cheat him out of such an election.
The Herald correspondent says.
It is a curious fact, acknowledged in private
conversation by many Democratic congressmen,
that Mr. Tilden's name appears to have a
stronger hold on the people over a considerable
part of the country than that of any other Demo
crat spoken of. No one attempts to account for
this, nor is it easy to see why, as he was not
nominated in 1830. he should now be a favorite.
Hut there is good reason to believe that his nom-
ination next July would be extremely and exten
sively popular with Western, Northwestern cand
Southern Democrats. The stories of his deerop
itnde and feebleness have no effect, apparently,
npon his popularity; and the conversation in
which Governor Seymour lately seemed to look
favorably upon Mr. Tilden's nomination, in spite
of his physical weakness, seems to have been
read with great satisfaction in different parts of
Nor is that all. Several prominent and influ
ential Republicans have lately said to your cor
respondent that they regard Mr. Tilden as the
most formidable candidaie their party conld
have. He would certainly carry New York, they
admit, he would not loso any state which the
Democrats hope or expect to carry.
Under these circumstances, the question of
his nomination is quietly but seriously discussed
here, and of course, the question oit who shall
have the second place on the ticket, always
comes up. "The old ticket" is generally de
elnrt'A tn hA nnt nf the ni_t.n__lt.Ti. Xnhmlv wnnt.s
Mr. Hendricks. But it is taken for granted that
any man in the party spoken of for the Pre
sidency, no matter how high his pretensions to
the first place, may be called upon to take the
second place under Mr- Tilden, and one hears of
such tickets as Tilden and Bayard, Tilden and
Morrison, Tilden and McDonald, and even Tilden
and Lamar—a conjunction which would make
poor Mr. Montgomery Blair furious, if he were
alive, to hear it named.
So far as can be gathered here, the Tilden
"boom" is the only prosperous "boom" in the
Democratic party at present. All the others are
perishing little "hoomlcts" which even the most
assiduous nursing scarcely keeps alive. If the
reports of Mr. Tilden's health should be fair
about next .Fourth of July the Convention which
meets on tho 8th, many Democrats here believe,
will nominate him by acclamation, and thereup
on pick out the strongest man they cau find for
the second place.
"And the platform?" yonr correspondent
asked a Democrat, who replied:
"I guess we should let Mr. Tilden write it in
THE DOTlI NtON.
The Canadian Dominion Government is
severely criticised by its newspapers for
much of its action. The Toronto Naa ar-
raigns the Dominion Government for its
course, alleging that it has been such as to
increase the tendency to disintegration, and
that it is becoming more evident that there
is no common bond of union between the
provinces, such as thc frainers of tbe system
of confederation hoped to secure. The spoils
system hasbeen extended from individuals to
provinces. Subsidy bribery and patronage
bribery is charged, and the tendency is to
put self-interest before patriotism and sec
tional interests loom up and take thc place
of the public good and subordinate principle
to public plunder. Instead of encouraging
union for common objects the provinces are
united to join in the scramble for plunier,
eaeh fighting for its own hand.
Under this system, it is alleged Ontario is
sacrificed, first, because being the wealthiest
province she pays thc greatest proportion of the
taxes; and secondly, because the delegations
of the other provinces are always united ir
respective of polities on the question of
raiding the Dominion treasury, while On
tario holds aloof from thc scramble, and is
divided on political issues. Quebec, Nova
Scotia, Prince Edwards Island, British Col
umbia and Manitoba have in turn come beg
ging to Ottowa, for subsidies, grant3, or bet
ter terms, under one pretext or another, and
Ontario foots the bills and has the honor of
being the premier province.
It is not wonderful, remarks the Hews.
tbat many are beginning to ask what has
been gained by confederation, and how long
the system can go on, upon the present ba
sis of continued demands of the minor provin
ces and continued concessions by the gen
The flurry in Manitoba, and the threats of
secession, may have no deeper purpose than
the securing of further concessions from the
Dominion government. It is quite appar
ent at any rate, that our neighbors of the
Dominion are far from being peaceful and
happy among themselves.
CONTEMPT FOR FORMS OF LA W.
It is announced by telegraph from San
Francisco that the judge of the court in
which the Sharon case is being tried ordered
the examination of every person in the room
before the trial commenced for thc purpose
of ascertaining whether or not any danger
ous weapons were to be found. Such a state
ment may look like an invention, but
there have been prior occurrences which
serve to establish the truth of the report. It
is a great pity, not only that such a scandal
ous fact should be made public, but it is
equally a pity that any court of justice in the
country should have to submit to such a hu
miliation. Had the thing occurred in
some mining town far out on the
frontier, and within the limits of the domain
subject only to Judge Lynch, there might be
some palliation of the transaction. But San
Francisco claims nbt only the average, but
the highest civilization. It assumes that it
has a wealth, a refinement and a culture far
in advance of most modern American cities.
This event strongly supports the conclusion
that there is something very rotten in our so
There is a lack of respect for the judiciary,
and there is probably a well founded con
viction that this branch has not earned the
right to thc confidence of the people. On the
other hand there is rampant a dangerous mob
spirit that is indisposed to respect the forms
of law whenever their enforcement clashes
with the wishes of the uneasy masses. It can
not but be that this contempt for the demand
of order, while owing its origin
somewhat to the Inferior and unreliable
character of those who make and those who
administer the laws is mainly the outgrowth
of the political lawlessness wbich for many
years has pervaded the country. Public
morality has been diluted from the injection
of a higher law, which considers that it has
a right to plunder so long as it pretends to
do it in the interest of God
and humanity. John Brown committed
murder, and yet under the regime which ha3
controlled the country he is regarded a3 a
saint. In a time when hold assassination is
canonized, when the will of the nation can
be defeated and a presidency of the country
stolen in part by force, and in part by
machinations, when theft is no crime and
political jobbery no offence, tbere is but little
reason to wonder that the people have be
come demoralized, that mob law is aggressive
and that tbe law-givers and the law inter
preters have but little trace of that firmness
and Integrity which should be among the
main characteristics of a righteous admin
istration of justice.

and was born in 1814. He graduated from Mag
dalen college in 1835, and so distinguished him
self that he was elected to one of the Vinerain
Fellowships in 1842. The year following he was
called to the bar by the society of Lincoln's Inn.
In 1S47 he received the d gree of D. C. L. (Doc
tor of civil (or cannon) Law) from his
University. But the law was no
the field for the play of his genius, and he soon
abandoned it for the more congenial paths of
literature. In 1852 he published his first story,
"Peg Wofiington," which immediately gave him
rank as a writer of fiction. In 1858 he gave tho
public his "Christie Johnstone," which met with
still greater favor. Some minor storlos appeared
which added Uttle to the fame of his earlier
productions. In 1856, however, he began npon
his literary career proper, beginning a series of
romances, each written to illustrate some social
or public wrong. "It 13 Never Too Late to
Mend" was the first of these, and directed
public attention to the brutalities of the English
prison system, and was Instrumental in effecting
a material reformation. Among his subsequent
works were The Course of True Love; White
Lies; The Cloister and the Hearth; Hard Cash;
Grlfiith Gaunt; Put Yourself in His Place; A
Terrible Temptation; The Wandering Heir;
Maid, Wife and Widow; A Hero and a Martyr;
etc. Hard Cash was written with the object of
calling attention to the abuses of English
lunatic asylums and produced so profound an
effect that parliament was constrained to make a
radical change in the lunacy laws. Put Yourself
in His Place was a powerful exposition of the ter
rorisms practiced by the English system of trades
unions upon independent workmen. Griffith
Gaunt was the linest exposition of social and do
mestic jealousy ever put forth in the English
tongue. In all Mr. Reade was the author of
about forty novels, and fully one-third of them
I have been dramatized and proven very success-
I ful on thc stage. Nearly all his books have been
translated into the different languages of Europe,
and all of them have found a wide sale in this
country. As a writer Mr. Reade's style was
characterized by great terseness and vigor as well
as by a wealth of incident which few writers of
fiction have possessed.
Death of Dumas.
Jean Baptiste Dumas was born at Alals, a town
of the department of Gard, a college town of
France, in the month of July, 1800. Under the
patronage of De Caudolle, at Geneva, he early
acquired considerable proficiency as a botanist
and chemist. After his marriage, in 1321, with
the daughter of Alexandre Brongniant, he re
sided at Paris and gave his - undivided time to
chemistry, becoming a professor in the polytech
nic school in th$ faculty of science, and in the
school of medicine, and president of the society
for the encouragement of industry.
After the revolution of 1848 he was elected to
the legislative assembly, and In 1849 was appoint
ed by President Bonaparte to the ministry of ag
riculture and commerce. After the coup d'etat
of 1851 he was appointed senator and vice-presi
dent of the municipal commission of Paris. His
published works (scientific memoirs and organic
chemistry) are highly valued.
Danger of Getting Crow.
A gentleman enters to buy spate of partrldgos.
" How much Is this patet" 1 he a*ks.
" Twenty francs."
" Are thoro several partridges in lt?"
" A man must be a millionaire to eat your
" We have others that are much cheaper."
" Where are they?"
"There. Five francs."
"They are just as large a» the others?"
"Yes, but thoy are filled with crow."
The charm of this opening dialogue ls its can
dor. When a man wants a bigger pate than tho
legitimate market affords, why he can have one
with the crow filling aud no mistake about it. If
he be a politician after sopao Eigual victory over
the other fellow, he could seem magnanimous,
and at the same time secure a delicate and wholly
novel revenge by serving him a banquet of crow
disguised in pates. To come right down to it, If
crow must be eaten at all, economically or polit
ically, it is decidedly better to make it in pates.
The pate is the thing.

"Wayxesville, N. C., April 11.—A sen
sation was created here last night after
midingM by the cowhidding of W. H. John
son, a good looking young man noted for his
laziness. Johnson for some time past has
been living at the house of an old widow
named Crawford, whose kindness would
not permit her to turn him out. Her
friends have repeatedly advised her
not to submit to the imposition, but without
effect. Last night after 12 o'clock the
daughter and granddaughter of Mrs. Craw
ford went to ber bouse, and forcing open the
front door entered the room in which John
son slept. The elder lit the lamp. Johnson
stared wildly around at the visitors, who or
dered him to get up at once.
"Leave tbe room first," said the
frightened man. T.ie two women, both strong
and active, without, further parley pulled him
frwin the bed and commenced belaboring
bim with a cowhide. He was in his night
clothes, his legs being exposed, and he beat
a retreat to the passage. They followed, and
whipped him out in the street. The 6creams
for aid brought out the police, who rescued
him. The women warned him never to
come in the house again.

ST. PAUL TO BAYT0WN,
A "Globe" Traveler Discourses About
His Late Travels.
Special Correspondence of the Globe:
Battown, Minn., April 10. —"When I left
the Globe office a few days ago all agog for
items of news, and anxious to earn my
money, and to distinguish myself in my
new avocation, the first sight to attract my
attention was four antelopes looking out of a
latticed window on Wabashaw street. I un
derstood they eloped from Dakota, and from
the sad and tender expression of their beauti
ful eyes I thought they would be glad to
elope again, or go home. Perhaps both. I
saw an aunt elope once before; she hoisted
the window. In the street near by was a car
riage drawn by a remarkable animal. I did
not see him draw it, however, though he did
draw the attention of a good many people.
From the unevolvcd and miocene
appearance of this beast I at
first took him for a hipparion
from the Bad Lands and very naturally
connected the conveyance in my mind, with
thc Dakota affair; but when I noticed his
forlorn and abused look, undoubtedly heredi
tary, and heard his ventriloquous voice, I
thought his ancestor might have been smit
ten by the prophet that lived by tbe river.
Some one called the concern an itinerant
tailoring establishment, but I have seen too
many tailors '-whipping the cat" from
house to house in my day, not to know bet
ter than that.
I reached the union depot just in time,
and was soon enjoying the scenery between
8t. Paul and Chicago. I caught a glimpse
of the fish hatchery, and saw several cows in
a meadow, aud looked very bard for Plg's
Eye, but couldn't see it, and I concluded it
was closed. Remembering what you said
about Newport News, I Intended to get off at
that station, and visit the hospitable home of
William the Fowler, and learn all about the
dairy busiuess, but a passenger advised me
to go to Virginia if I wanted to find Newport
News. Was he chaffing me i Another spoke
of a Newport somewhere on the coa.-t of
New England. I think he said it wa3 on an
island, but I 6hall not go to see; at least
until the "probabilities" are exceedingly

ers are all at work. They will persist In sow
Being somewhat uncertain as to my In
structions, and not wishing to be at sea, I
left the east-bound train at Hastings, witli
out quite finishing my imperial and palatial
dinner. There I learned that this line city.
founded on a rock, was not named fur War

"When the loud cry of trampled Hindustan
Arose to heaven lu her appeal from man,"
but for our honored fellow citizen General
Sibley, a mueh better man, certainly. I bad
no time to learn anything else bere, for 1
took the find train up tlie shore ofthe beauti
ful Lake 8t Croix. Talk about Geneva and
Como, you who have seen them. 1 have seen
our own Como, but comparisons so uear
home might be Invidious.
I saw no Dane6 in Denmark, and I saw no
point at Point Douglas, nor at Point Pres
eott, whieh I looked at across the lake. The
village of Preseott is pretty enough, only I
failed to see the point. As I want to make
as many points us possible, I mention here,
though a little in advance, that the chief
glory of Kittson's Point, near Stillwater, is
its name, and the historierl associations con
nected with it.
I 6aw hundreds of wild geese on the ice
jand in tho waters of Lake St. Croix, near
The Klnnlklnnick. Klnnlklnuiek is just
lovely; you cau put that in your pipe and
smoke it. It reminds me of Port Tobacco.

One might compare this venerable Institu
tion of learning to William and Mary's col

William and Mary's college is neurly two
centuries old, and has oue or two students.

And here we cross Bolles' creek, the gently
flowing Afton water, where, ore long, the
brown thrush will sing, and the speckled
trout will rise and welcome thc car
grasshopper with open mouth.
Aud now let us pause, for we are on the
site of the ancient city of St. Mary. Once a
promising city, with line streets and squares
actually on paper; now more utterly gone
than Biilbec or Palmyra. One might exclaim
here, as Vo_rn-y did among the broken mar
bles of the latter city:
"Hail, ye solitary ruins, ye sacred tombs,
and silent walls!" But, alas! there aru im
ruins here, nor any tombs. Few ever lived
here, and none died here. It is a dead citv.
but not a city of the dead.
"The spider has wove his web ln the im
perial palace; and the owl bath sung her
watch song on the towers of Afrasiab."
These beautiful lines of a gnat Persian
poet are very appropriate, but they are not
appropriate, here. Yet, even here the vagrant
dog sometimes wanders, and the lone whip
poorwill builds her inimitable nest.

There is an ice bridge, a veiy nice bridge,
for thc accommodation of the winter travel
between Lakeland and Hudson, and during

elegant passenger steamers make hourly

very popular. It goes without saying that he
reads The Daily Globe.
Now for Baytown. Tiiis town is decidedly
honey, as I know to my cost. I saw a very
fine bay horse bere, and was sauntering
along the shore aud looking over my right
shoulder for a sea honse, when, as ill luck
would have it, I stumbled and fell headlong
over a rickety old racking saw horse that
some wood thief or would be thief had
abandoned, and here I am and here I am

Daly's first name is John. He is an Amer

wore a diamond ring. ne is a short, thick
set man, about 35 years of age, witb a black
moustache. When seized he struggled to es
cape, and tried to reach his overcoat pockets,
in which were found two infernal machines
with clock-work pattern. Two more
machines were found in outside pockets
of his under coat, and one in the breast
pockets. The machines are believed to be ex
actly like those found in the London railway
stations. It is expected he will finally bo
brought to London, and charged with hav
