Set the statesmen up in a row, and give the

Uncle litres Hatch, in an interview on
the presidency, said: "There is John Sher
man. He is a very able man and comes
from an able state. But in alll truth I am
tired of Ohio furnishing all the presidents
for us. You know with my strong opposi
tion to corners of every kind, I cannot but
be opposed to giving any state a corner on
the White house. Ohio might just as well
annex the District of Columbia, or move the
White house up to their own state capital.
I propose- to give some other state a chance."
The opinion Uncle Rufus holds regarding
John Sherman and the Ohio office-seeking
crowd, is creditable to bis judgment. There
are tens of thousands of people who will en
dorse the sentiment heartily. Let the Re
publican party put these men out and earn
the gratitude of the country.
Mr. Burrows, of Michigan, is an un
grateful wretch. His party has done much
for [in, but he is not satisfied, but like the
horse leech's daughter he is crying for more.
Being for the first time in many years out of
office I resident Arthur was willing and
anxious to appoint him solicitor of the treas
ury, but he could not get the secretary of
the treasury or any of the members of con
gress to agree with him that it was a decent
thing to o. This has angered the 'Wolverine
dude, and in a recent speech he had the
effrontery to say: "The Republicans of
Michigan propose to retire the present ad
ministration, conceived in political debauch
ery and iniquity, and give it a free pass up
Salt creek." Julius Caesar told the truth
very neatly in that saying, but if he had not
been a disappointed Republican office seeker
he would not have said it. It was a mean
way of taking revenge, though it must be
claimed the figure is truthful.
The honesty of the workers of the Arthur
boom is getting to be very conspicuous.
They illustrate political virtue and moral
ity in a striking way. But in doing it hy
pocrisy seems to be their stock in trade, and
Ohio a chosen and favorite field of operations.
The Cincinnati Sana-Journal gives an inter-
View with a prominent Ohio Republican, un
folding the mode of carrying on the Arthur
delegate campaign in that state. Speaking
of Arthur lie says:
""He is the shrewdest" (and he might have ad
fled the most unscrupulous and knavish) "poli
tician in the country, and he knows just when
and where to make the naked issue, and just
when and where to conceal his identity, and
achieve by flnessee what cannot be achieved by
mi open movement. Sot less than ten delegates
from Ohio who were professedly chosen in the
interest of either Blame or Sherman will be for
Arthur from the beginning. If Mr. Edwin
Cowles, of Cleveland, chose to do so, he could
give you the list of them. llr. Arthur's pro
gramme is working out beautifully in Ohio at
this moment. All looks calm and peaceful on
the lattice, but below and out of the public view
a bitter and relentleu war is raging between the
adherents Qf Maine and Sherman. The 'friends
of Arthur, who may by found in every postollice
Of prominence in the st:ite, in every revenue col
lector's office, and every other Government office,
are encouraging this Internedng strife, playing
double to both Blame and Snerman, andlookimr
out for Arthur's chances all the tiino. Each ona
of ih iae officeholders is a committee of one, and
in each Congressional district they are aggregated
into committees to work upon tiie delegates and
bring them over finally to Arthur's interests."
The attributes of a number of the men
who fawned around the late President Gar
lield, who gained his confidence and used his
good nature to further their own selfish ends,
havp, In several notable cases su come to the
public knowledge as to greatly obscure the
farm- of the statesman for whom the country
deeply mourned. In a recent letter to a
Cincinnati paper "Gath" mentions having
met JohuTod, a resident of Cleveland, and
the eldest sou of Ohio's War Governor, Dav
id Tod, now deceased. The latter reports
Mr. Tod as saying;
It is reported that Governor Foster has said
that Arthur cannot carry Ohio. Ido not know
on what, he bases th:it estimate. It seems to me
that Arthur is pretty well supported in Ohio by
public opinion. There was some of this Garfield
expression against him for awhile, but I think
that has pretty well exausted itself. I am op
posed to these dark horses and untried men. I
think that President Garfleld was a failure in that
executive office. These revelations now coming
out about liis favorites show thai he did not pick
h^ men wisely. This Major Swaim, for instance,
was iu>! :i lit man to be made Judge Advocate of
the army. 1L- is loud of money, and wants to
make it, and hence he turns out in a very tew
years to be iv the most embarrassing position.
Garfield'a Cabinet was very ill-assorted, and out
of the friction caused by his election resulted his
own death, to the great scandal of the country.
There is a great deal of truth in the com
ment made by Mr. Tod, and his depicture of
the character of the man Swaim is strikingly
accurate. It will be difficult indeed for the
puplic to retain for President Garfield that
luminous reverence that was so universally
and .so generously bestowed immediately on
the termination of his eighty days of suffer
ing. There is no disguising this truth,earnest
ly as it may be wished it were otherwise.
The eighth page of the Globe this morning
contains the details of a musical festival to
be held in Minneapolis in June, which will at
tract considerable attention, both because of
its magnitude and the extraordinary attrac
tions which characterizes the whole scheme.
Our enterprising Minneapolis friends ap
pear to have captured, not only Theodore
Thomas and his great orchestra, but all of
the distinguished artists whom he has en
gaged for his festivals of this year
in the great cities of the east,
from Christine Xillson and the renowned
trio whom Wagner's endorsement gave a
world-wide reputation, to a quartette of the
finest of our own American singers, the
whole presenting an octette of stars without
previous parallel in the country save in the
festivals of the present year. Added to or
chestra and artists is to be a chorus from St.
Paul and Minneapolis COO stroug. The mu
sic to be sung seems altogether worthy of the
great names who will give luster to the pro
gramme, and the mammoth building in which
the festival is to be held appears to be
admirably adapted to the purpose. Altogeth
er the festival is inaugurated upon a scale
which ensures a magnificent musical suc
cess, whatever be tiie result to the plucky
citizens of Minneapolis, who have shouldered
the financial burdeu.
Th 3 arrangements for transporting ticket
holders from St. Paul to the coliseum is not
the least gratifying feature of the affair. The
building borders upon the track of the Mani
toba Short line, which will trans
port our citizens to the door of
the coliseum, returning them after each
concert; and as our St. Paul chorus figures
equally with that of Minneapolis in the festi
v .1. th( iv seems every reason why it should
be sustained jointly by the music lovers of
both cities. Iv fact, the character of the
festival will compel the attention of every
person iv either city who knows anything of
the nature of the work to bu done and ■of
the great array of artists, musicians and cho
rus that are to it.
"What element is there in the female com
position that impels women to sympathize
with murders and to make heroes of felons
condemned to the gallows? It is very uni
formly true that a murderer sentenced to be
hung, is visited in his cell by women, he is
presented with food-delicacies, and flowers,
pert young misses read to him by the hour,
ami on one occasion a woman was heard to
exclaim: "What a pity to hang him, he is
such a pretty man I" But it is not the
"pretty" murderers alone that share in fe
male sympathy. The coarse, the vulgar, the
repulsive are made the objects of female at
tention and solicitude.
Just now Rugg, the disgusting ourangou
tang looking negro murderers in the Brook
lyn, >". V., jail, condemned to be hung for
the murder of several women is the ideal he
ro of women who Hock to him bearing bou
quets in great profusion, making his cell a
very parterre of floral adornment. And thus
this disgusting looking wretch, this brutal
murderer is the object of carrejsing atten
tion by women whose very instincts of pro
priety, delicacy, and self-respect, ought to
produce in them nothing but loathing aver
sion. Sush women are a disgrace to their
sex. and make themselves objects of scorn
and contempt.
Women toaking such a spectacle of them
selves are not confined to a low and dis
carded class, but all classes and conditions
are -aid t.i be vicing with each i ther iv deify
the brutal wretch Rugg, and iv so doing dis
grace, an i stain with reproach their own
sex. The problem still remains unsolved as
to what element in femininity ea'isos this
monstrous, unnatural and unstintedly <>, 11
--catc attentions to murder monsters, of the
deepi -t dye, who are guilty of every loathe
some debauchery and crime up to murl.r.
This exhibition of female sympathy for con
fessed and condemned murders, is nothing
short of criminal folly. Some women are a
disgrace to their six. and to humanity itself.
The Royal family of England has received
a decided snub in tiie morganatic marriage
(if the son-in-law of Queen Victoria. It is
not long since tiie death of his wife, and the
marriage of his daughter, ths grandchild of
tli? Queen of England, and it is but a few
weeks since it was announced that the be
reaved husband had male proposals for the
hand of the youngest daughter of the Queen,
Beatrice, the acceptance to depend on the
action of parliament in legitimizing: marri
ages with a deceased wife's sister. It was at
the very time that this proposal was pend
iiiLT. and also at the moment when Victoria
was present at the wedding of her son-in
law's daughter, and Beatrice herself was on
the ground, and when another daughter, the
Crown Priuee>s Victoria of Germauv was
among the wedding guests that tli3 'eft
handed union of the Duke of Hesso-Earm
stadl was announced.
One can readily imagine the consternation
created by the publication of this oceurreuee
among the staid, and Puritanical toions of
the Royal English family. There are tut few
people who will sympathize with their morti
fication, and humiliation. The Queen of
England has excited a world-wide and un
pleasant notoriety from her methods of mar
rying off her daughters. The motive under
lying her system has been to secure a Ger
aian mate for her children, and in a majori
ty of cases she has accomplished it.
■ She began by marrying the duke of
Saxony. Her oldest daughter secured the
crown prince of Germany; her second daugh
ter married the gentleman who has just con
cluded a morganatic marringi; with the dis
carded wife of a Russian diplomat, the third
daughter, Helena, married a pauper of Sebles
wig-Holstein, named Christian; the fourth
daughter, Louise, was wedded to the Marquis
of Lome, but it was done to break off an at
tachment which the. princess had for her
clerical tutor, and for the further reason that
there was no German dignitary who could be
reached at the moment. The case of the
youngest daughter has just been spread be
fore the public. Her mother dragged her
over to Darmstadt to meet a man whom 6he
could noj, marry unless parliament should
first repeal a law which has at least the merit
of being venerable from the length of its ex
istence. Anything more indelicate than this
dragging a young woman to the continent to
meet a man whom she could not legally mar
ry, cannot well be imagined.
Hence, there will be little sympathy felt
for this match-hunting old woman, in her
indecent efforts to distribute her daughters
among a class of men, who as a rule, have
none of that regard for the sanctity of mar
ried life which prevails among Anglo-Saxons.
It is a stinging, a most humiliating insult,
and is one which she has invited by her own
course. It is a notorious fact that the young
est daughter, Beatrice has been in the mark
et for years, and that no end of proffers has
been made by the royal mother to secure her
a husband iv central Europe, She has al
ways shown a preference for a German hus
band, providing he were a nobleman, entire
ly irrespective of his morals, pecuniary
standing, or other essentials and qualifica
tions. The affront iv the present instance is
richly deserved by this royal husband-hunter.
There is an anecdote of the great French
surgeon, Dupuytren, saying on quitting a
successful practice of thirty years, that the
cause of his retirement was that he was tired
of guessing. So, too, perhaps James R.
Keene was tired of guessing at paper values,
and refused all offers of pecuniary assistance
—evidently preferring the certainty of sur
render to the dubious or hazardous chances
of holding on any longer in Wall street.
Time was when the reliable philosopher
Benjamin Franklin said that in business
"mind" did not particulnrly matter, and
that the dull and solid one of the family
ought to be the one to go into "the city,"
the bank,foundn-,factory or shop. Then such
sphere o£ financial activity as the Wall
street of to-day was scarcely projected by
the imagination of any man in or
out of business. Then tradition and
custom regulated the markets quite as much
as any intelligence. Profit was traceable
through minute percentages wherein pru
dence was the great shaping quality, and
usually the persons displaying this capacity
which proportions means to ends, became
rich through industry and economy and
founded "houses" of excellent repute and
quotation. How meagre and stinted is that
notion and method of success beside the
enormous expansion of to-day! What a
scale the world has reached in population,
wealth and knowledge.
Average men make no impression on
'change. The leaders in Wall street are
statesmen of finance with a fertility of re
sources, a quickness of mind, a rapidity in
action, and the alertness of foresight which
insures success, or saves from disaster.
Super added is the directing faculty which
chooses subordinates educated for the work
of adroit linunce with a cultivated ability
which formerly was absorbed in tue
professions alone. In no state department
of the world is there so much brain force of
a kind exerted as in Wall street. The drive,
the energy, the rapid overturn of a rival's
securities, and the instant command of
large supplies of money at the very crisis of
emergency requires a financiering which has
grown to be a science—one of the inexact
ones, possibly, as connected with Wall
street speculators of the brainy type. Into
this world of money changing in Wall street,
with its hard, uuhalting, sinister, hurly
burly, rode James R. Keene in a Pullman
palace car. not many years ago, and it is
told that his unwelcoming antipodes in char
acter, Mr. Jay Gould, made the prediction
thereanent that he would depart in a freight
car within a given interval. Perhaps he may,
but even so, he is more victor than van
quished. His best triumph is in
leaving a scene where each day
found him throwing away wealth far trans
scending money by the million, in peace of
mind, the sweet security of competence, and
the well-earned privileges of serene leisure.
When Keene first knew Wall street he was
almost womanly in tenderness—had the ut
most aversion to publicity, and had a very
strong hold upon Ms friendships. Many
and many an act of Keene's generosity is
related by his intimates, and the proffer of
large sums to tide over his break would seem
to prove a reciprocity in the hour of need.
If lie takes out of his ordeal some remnant
of health and nerve equipoise, together with
a vestige of respect and belief in his species,
it may be said with truth that he is not as
much of a bankrupt as he seems.
Meanwhile the lesson of his life is that the
game he has been at work upon for years of
devastating excitement is not worth the
candle, which, to add the words of Holmes,
held the three * wicks to the
man's life: brain, blood and breath.
Press the brain a little, its light goes out,
followed by both the others. Stop the heart
a minute, and out go all three of the wicks.
Choke the air out of the lungs,
and presently the fluid ceases to
supply the other centers of flame, and all is
soon stagnation, cold and darkness. Death
is the alternative, hut the towering stock
speculator does not heed it while he is using
up his candle with fatal celerity at his paltry
It is told of a prince who tried every pleas

The poorest man in New York was the late
Joseph Agate, who was nevertheless the for-
tunate owner as the world rates it of mill

sleep was impossible to him any more, and
he dreaded insanity. "What destitution

While the embarassment which has over
taken the great corporation of which Senator
Sabin is the acknowledged head is much to
be regretted it is not so serious as would
appear flash and there is no reason why it
at first should disturb business affairs.
The condition of affairs is so fully detailed
in this issue of the Globe that there is little
to add, save to express the hope and belief
that the expectation of the officers will be
fully realized. It is far from being what is
commonly styled "a failure." The works
will proceed as usual, the contracts, will
be filled as though nothing had happened.
In fact the receivership enables this to be
done, and prevents impetuous creditors from
wrecking the company. It is a legitimate
and legal expedient to avoid a business dis
aster which might result from precipitate ac
tion. There is no reason why the company
can cot emerge from its receivership within
a few months stronger and more vigorous
than ever.
Great sympathy cannot but be felt for Sen
ator Sabin, who has stood in the breach so
manfully. When his stock was depressed he
sustained it, and has, within a few weeks,
bought a considerable amount at eighty cents,
and but for the general financial troubles of
the country, he would have maintained it at

Befork he ran for congress and was elected on

The Northwestern Chronicle of this week
publishes the first part of the recent encylical
letter of the Pope denouncing Masonry and
warning Catholics not to enter secret societies.
After referring to previous papal utterances on
the subject, the Pope says of the organization:
The candidates must promise, generally even
swear expressly, never tinder any circumstances
to reveal the associates, the countersign, the doc
trines of the sect: thus under false appearances,
and with the art of constant dissimulation, the
Free Masons, like the Manicheans, study to re
main hidden and to have no witnesss but their
own members. They dexterously seek subter
fuges in order not to appear in their true colors:
they study cultivated language and urbanity of
manners, and are charitable to the poor. They
speuk of their zeal for tin- progress of civilization
and if one were to believe them their only aim
is to extend the advantages of civil society. But
this is not all : The association must more
over promise a blind and absolute obedience to
their leaders and masters; at the slightest sign,
at a simple word they must carry out their or
ders ; ready, in case of failure, to undergo any
punishment even death itself: and it is not a rare
thing for crnel vengeance to fall upon him who
is suspected of having betrayed the secret or
disobeyed the commands, and this with so much
audacity 3nd dexterity that the assassin fre
quently escapes from the execntion of justice.
Further on the pope says:—"What wo have
said or shall say is to be understood of the Ma
sonic sect considered in itself and of the allied
and united societies embraced in this great fam
ily, but not of the individual followers: in whose
number there may be not a few who, although
culpable of mixing in these kinds of societies,
nevertheless, take no direct part in their evil
works and are ignorant of tbeir final aim. Thus
also in the same societies all perhaps do not
draw the extreme consequences, to which, how
ever, as a natural conclusion of common prin
ciples they should logically arrive, if the enor
mity of certain doctrines did not divert them.
The condition also of places and the times, rend
ers them less daring than the others. This,how
ever, does not exonerate them from complicity
with the Masonic sect,which desires to be judged
of from the assemblage of its principles, rath
er than from acts and facts."'

floral tokens from his brother firemen in the
shape of a full-sized fireman's hat composed
of tuba roses and carnation pinks and an
elegant cross made of the same blossoms,
were placed upon the casket. At the con
clusion of the impressive funeral ceremon
ies the body was taken to Calvary cemetery
for interment.

The rumor that Charles O'Conor is in
such a precarious condition as to require the
daily attendance of Ills New York physician,
sets one thinking of his long and distin
guished career. He is almost as solitary as
Campbell's "Last Man" in that weird poem,
for all the world that he knew and that knew
him has passed away. He has outlived all
his associates at the bar, and all those mem
bers of the bench before whom he won fame.
He alone remains of that noble legal circle
which he entered as a young and promising
lawyer. Among the judges before whom he
argued were Irving, Edwards, Morris, Lans
ing, and'dowu in succession to Noah Davis,
who presided at the trial of Frank Walworth
for the murder of his father. Such a long,
useful, studious, calm life-time, aud now to
be standing at the end of it without a re
proach in its wake, or a blemish upon its
Enthusiastic following never could be bis,
as in the ease'of James T.Brady,nor could the
same poignant sorrow of irreparable loss
follow him to the grave. God made James
T. Brady, and his wonderful fascination of
character, manners,and endowments formed
a spoil which no one could ever forget. His
death left a void which time only emphasized
with the hopelessness of any reproduction of
his least attribute. What wit, and grace,and
gallantry, and exquisitely unselfish kindness
perished with him, and what matchless gifts
he had for the profession he nflorni-d.
Ambition, a cold unsparing bent of mind,
extraordinary tenacity of purpose, and the
courts, made Charles O'Conor. All the
characteristics of a great lawyer were born
with him, and circumstances shaped and
hardened them into forms as enduring as
granite. In the fulfillment of massive legal
ambition, Charles O'Conor will stand like the
Great Stone Face, in Hawthorne's beautiful
story—not perhaps an object of enthuiiastic
expectation in prefiguring a human
double-goer, as in that cass constantly sug
gesting the lofty resemblance, but in tower
ing and almost unapproachable prominence.
In many enormous Adirondack rocks at
the base of the mountains you see large birch
trees growing in fissures of the stone, togeth
er with flowers, fantastic vines, and large
shrubs, all thriving and at home in the. same
rocky rift. While" Mr. O'Conor is grave and
austere, hedged about, too, with all the heap
ed up dignities of his long and honorable
career, he can be a most delightful talker.
No man can excel him in the combined hos
pitality of mind and table, when he chooses.
He entertains you with the best of every
kind, and what a superlative that used to be
in the old time at Fort Washington. The
very flower of civilization in achievement,
polish, lustre anil distinction, was seen
at his table. He presided a
host in himself, according to every shade of
its meaniug, and with a consciousness of
resources in his guests which lent a charm
to every set of invitations. The selection
was made with a surety of the finest social re
sult. You met every one of eminence and
note at his house. It was a privilege to
see and hear so much in such a memorable
atmosphere—of personalities, performance,
aud information that constituted a liberal
education of itself as Steel Aays.
The memory of Mr. O'Conor could furnish
incidents and illustrations which would fix
any citation and fact enduringly in the
mind. Did some one mention the cele
brated lawyer Thomas Addis Emmet, he
could recall his death-stroke while pleading
in court, with a powerful descriptive touch,
which made you afterwards see with strangely
impressed eyes that monuments in the
grand pivotal area in New York arour.d
which the life and energy of the city course
and pulsate from day to day,glanced at by the
hurrying multitudes, some with a dim
impression of an Irish name
with a political tragedy in
the family, and others—a very few others
whose privilege it was to hear Charles O'Conor
speak of his early practice, always had in a
single look at the tomb a swift biographical
resume of Thomas Addis , Emmet's brilliant
professional course of twenty-three years at
the New York bar, beginning the year of his
brother's execution and his own exile, and
ending in as sudden and public a death,
summons as John Quincy Adams'.
It has been charged that Mr. O'Connor
has been harsh, exacting and overbearing
with young, and indeed, old members of his
profession. This is a phase of him that I
must take on hearsay. Ilis wit is mordant,
and his sarcasm pitiless upon occasion.
Through his own career he has asked for no
quarter, and he is not disposed to show
much. He was born fully panoplied and
we all know that power of every kind is (riv
en to encroaching. 'Tis the law of superi
ority, and power, whether in nature or hu
man life.
Mr. O'Conor wasn't helped to his
place by concessions or partiality. lie got
there by himself, because he belonged there
as by an irresistible law the sun crosses the
line. A helper of the kind Mr. Attorney
General Bedizened 11. Brewster has been to
young Lawyer Bliss, of our first society in
St. Louis, would have seemed to Charles
O'Conor in his hardest hour of struggle as a
criminal advance worthy of the penitentiary.
His leading trait has been to preserve a
stainless honor and repute. Popularity he
has not coveted. 'Tis as often a sign of
mediocrity- as of excellence, and popularity,
in the current meaning of the term, would
be a source of humiliation rather than of
satisfaction to Mr. O'Conor. But deep and
earnest respect he has always commanded
and he has a personality that masters all who
approach him. If the memory of a. man like
James T. Brady can sweeten a whole life
time, the impression one gets of O'Conor is
never forgotten. You are instantly aware,
without a premonitory word, that
the man is the rare perfection
of his species, not accorded to many ages
since the law became the marvellous loom
that it is.
In personal appearance Charles O'Conor
is tall and slender, at least he was slender
when I used to see him. His features are
regular and refined, and his hair thick and
white. The mouth is a significant feature.
It is wide, with lips tlist always have a scorn
ful twist, or sneering writhe in them, show
ing anon a glint of the whitest teeth. Intel
lect and distinction are legible in face and
figure, albeit the latter is always garbed in
ill-fitting, well-worn clothes, and in the mat
ter of hats, he is almost as careless as his St.
Paul congener the indefatigable and erudite
H. C. E.
These random reminiscences go back
many years—even to a time when Charles
O'Conor with his venerable father used to
attend mass in a Convent chapel not far
from Fort Washington. Later in his stately
town house in Lafayette Place, I heard
his voice for the first time in a remarkable
conversation with Clarkson N. Potter, his
foremost guest at dinner, and a "most
noticeable man" anywhere. I was greatly
impressed with the whole scene. The house
itself had been projected on a large and
liberal scale. It was full of sombre spaces,
with the most desirable evidences of taste
and wealth on every hand. It seemed to be
the very home meet for such a lawyer. It
was eloquent of rich fees, and of a position
which instead of surprising the winner, as
it does the haphazard people of our time, was
merely what he expected as a right, and
which he was enjoying with the rich ample
calm of second nature.
He loved his suburban home at Fort
Washington, which is a treasure house in
books alone, while in views of the Hudson
'tis richer than all the dreams of artists. Per
haps he wanted a total change from all his
former life and surroundings in a sojourn of
some years at Nantucket on the "storm and
rock-bound coast" of New England. He
must have found it.
An Interview With Hon. C.
I). Gilfillan, First Vice
A Clear Review of the Situation
And the Causes Which Have
Produced it.
If the Books Verify What Appears on
Their Face No one Will Lose a
The placing of the Northwestern Car Com
pany in the hands of a receiver, was the
talk of the town yesterday, but there was no
real news in the gossip of the street and
there is no occasion for its repetition or for
interviews with outsiders. As it was
understood that the indebtedness of the
company is almost entirely in the east,
there was no feeling of alarm relative to any
local finaucial disturbance, and hence the
talk was entirely general.
It is understood that Mr. Sabin will leave
Washington to-day and he is expected to
reach Stillwater next Thursday.
Interview with Hon. C. V. Gilfiltaii.
Hon. C. D. Gilfillan, first vice president
of the Car Company, returned from Still
water yesterday afternoon, where he had
been since Saturday morning. A Globe
representative called upon him last evening
to ask his views upon the situation.
Mr. GiMllau stated that there would be no
losses to any banks or financial institutions
in Minnesota, in any event, because almost
none of the car company paper was held in
this section of the country. The same may he
said of every institution with which Mr.
Sabin is connected. Whatever of
their paper is afloat is in the east.
The Stillwater banks have none at all and
the banks in St. Paul all combined hold less
than ten thousand dolfars. He further
stated that if the books of the Car Company
are correct, the institution will be
carried along and neither stock
holders or creditors will lose
\ dollar. One of the first duties of the re
ceiver will be to employ experts to go
through the books and verify them and if
they prove to be what they now show on
their face, all will be brought out. without loss.
The trouble has been, said Mr. Gilfillan, that
the company has been a great mushroom
affair without any head and, until lately, no
system in its management.
''How will the receiver obtain means to
conduct the business," was a query pro
There is no difficulty about that, was the
reply. The receiver is an officer of the court
and his expenses take the priority of every
thing as they are court costs. All creditors
are subject to the receiver and he will thus
be enabled to go on without the
embarassment which involved the company
formerly. Mr. Brown is a man entitled to
the highest confidence as a gentleman of
ability and reliability, and the interests of
the Car Company and the creditors are en
tirely safe in his hands.
What is the situation of Townsend & Co?
I do not know anything about their busi
ness. I understand that Mr. Sabin is largely
interested in that firm and his embarrass
ment may impair their credit, but as far as
the misfortune to the Car Company is con
cerned their assets are not affected, and if
they could go on before they can go on now.
Is the C. N. Nelson Lumber company in
Ido not think they are involved a dollar.
Mr. Nelson and Mr. Darr have not been in
harmony with Mr. Sabin's business
management of late, aud I under
stand they are not affected in any
nay by this matter. They have logs and
lumber enough on hand to pay all their debts
leaving their plant and an immense amount
of pine land intact. Their business has
been conducted on business principles and
there have been no endorsements passing
between them and the Car Company.
The factis said Mr. Gilfillan, that Mr.
Sabin made his great mistake in neglecting
his business and going into politics. He has
had too many outside operations and it has
resulted in this embarassment, and a re
ceivership was the only method of protect
ing the interests of those associat
ed with him. Putting the
company into the hands of a receiver was
simply a plain business matter, and instead
of being a disaster it is a protection to a
great property. The business is immense,
and prosperous and leading stockholders
are ready to invest more in it if it can be
brought down to a proper business basis.
Mr. Gilfillan will visit Stillwater to-day to
aid the receiver in prosecuting his work.

[Special Telegram to the Globe.l
BmxWATEB, May 11.—Yesterday morning
broke calm and serene, and the ilurry and
excitement of Saturday evening were as
of things of the past. The citizens appear
to be settled down, especially when they saw
the statement in the Globe, that none of the
banks in the city were in the least embar
rassed by the difficulties under which the
Northwestern Construction and Car company
was struggling. It is learned that in Still
water there is not a cent of the company's
Duringthe day dame rumor again gotupall
sorts of stories about the car company, cacb
one giving his or her opinion, because the
ladies appear to discuss those matters with as
much gusto as the gentlemen. One had
one thing and one another, but when they
came to be boiled down there was nothing
left of any of these stories. To-day business
will proceed as it has always done.
In the statement in yesterday's Cti.onE, the
pay roll .was stated as being §25,000 per
month, but that amount was only the amount
really paid the mechanics, etc., and did not
include clerical and stated salaries, which
is $2,000 or $3,000 more.
The local stockholders and others of the
principal citizens could be seen in cotiries in
all directions discussing the situation, and
from tbeir low talk yet animated gestures,
more was surmised than actually happened.
[The Townshend & Go's, affairs are in statu
quo, and will remain in that condition for
some time yet, and it is to be hoped that the
financial men east who have been directly
interested in their affairs in the past, will
continue that financial support in the future.
The mills did a large business, both for
the home market and for the east, and the
grain market they had established was much
appreciated by the farmers. The late irreg
ular grain market has proved disastrous to
them, and should grain only move up a few
points, they will be able to get in a much
better position.

The German Anti-Socialist Law.
Berlin, May 9.—ln the reichstag to-day the
debate on the bill to'renew the special anti-so
cialist law was resumed. Eichter pronounced
the law a failure, emphasizing the fact, that it
had not prevented an attempt to blow up Xieder
wald monument. Yon Puttkamer, Prussian
home secretary, disagreed with Itichter, that the
occurrence instead or being an argument against
the prolongation o£ the law was a reason for it.
Ifaw defended the secret police in their dealings
with criminals. There were circumstances un
der which no government would be able to do
without a secret police. If the anti-socialist law
had not been enacted, their mission would have
been atoned for in torrents of blood.
All states which do not possess such
.1 law, are being undermined by anarchists, the
legitimate consequence of social democracy. The
government did not fail to appreciate Dr. Wind
thorst's good intention?, but they were unable
to reconcile his views with government responsi
Bismarck also spoke in defense of the bill. He
referred to the motion made by Windthorst in
1881, providing for the adoption of an interna
tional measure regarding the punishment of reg
icides, and read a letter by the emperor on the
occasion of the assassination of the Czar Alex
ander, showing that the emperor had proposed
such a measure before Dr. Windthorst. Eussia
and Austria were in favor of a national confer
ence. France made her decision dependent
upon the action England should take.
England rejected the proposal, and Austria
afterward withdrew her assent. The negotia
tions are now confined to Germany and Russia.
The government could not make law more leni
ent than it already was, but they hoped, through
social reforms, to give workmen their due, name
ly, work so long as they were able to labor and
support when they were unable to do it longer.
Parliamentary obstructions simply impeded the
government. If the bill should be rejected the
government would discuss it with another par
liament, and if another parliament should like
wise reject the bill, the government would be ex
onorated from all responsibility and could regard
any further development of social democracy
with a quiet conscience.
The New York Failures.
New York, May 10.—Examiner Scriba
was at work all day in the Marine bank. In
the afternoon he sent for Ferdenand D.
Ward, of the firm of Grant & Ward. lie
walked down Wall street followed by two
men, said to be detectives, and had a three
quarters of an hour interview with Scriba,
after which he returned to his office. Scriba
said hi£ report would not be ready until
Monday, and he would send it to the comp
troller of the currency at Washington. At
Grant & Ward's office it was said that no re
port or statement of the condition of the
firm would be given before Tuesday
or Wednesday. The receiver of
the firm of Grant & Ward
has been given permission by the supreme
court to surrender to claimants such securi
ties as are in his possession and which, with
out dispute, arc shown to have been pledged
with the firm as security for loans, upon his
receiving the money loaned.
In the suit of John 11. Morris V 3. Grant &
Ward, upon motion of Elihu Spieer, Jr., a
motion was argued to-day for an order di
recting the receiver of the firm, Mr. Davies,
to turn over to Spicer twenty-six second
mortgage bonds of the Gulf, Colorado 6c
Santa Fe Railway company, which he claims
to have merely placed on deposit with the
firm. The par value of the bonds is.*2G,ooo.
He claims they are wrongfully detained by
Mr. Davies as assignee.
French Consulate in New York.
Pabis, May 11.—The decision of the foreign
affairs disciplinary committee in the case of Por
tevin, summoned before them to answer the
charge of unpatriotic language is unfavorable to
Portevin, who will be expelled from his office of
French consulate in Xew York. The committee
reported to Terry, minister of foreign affairs,
reccommending the temporary sus
pension of Portevin. He will not
hereafter be permitted to return to
Xew York, but when allowed to resnme office in
the consulate department, will be sent to Dant
zig. The radical papers seize npon this mr iui-nt
to make an attack upon the system of official ap
pointments as a legacy of the empire. Chief
Consul Lefevre is denounced as having been
consul at Munich under the empire, and Mont
real, who served under MacMahon and is now at
Xew York, as being an opportunist.
Pere Hyacinthe in Chicago
Chicago, May 11.—The famous ex-French
Priest, Pere Hyacinthe,preached at Trinity Epis
copal church, in this city to-day. His address,
which was in French, dealt with the subject of
the Teßurrection of the body. lie and his wife
arrived from Madison, Wla., yesterday, and are
the gnests of the Hon. E. B. Wa*hburne, ex
minister to Paris. He leaves for Xew York to
morrow, and will at once sail for France, being
recalled by formal notice of a decree, by Presi
dent Grevy legalizing his church in France,which
is expected to give that reformation a new and
powerful impulse.
A New Comedy.
Chicago, May 11.—The new comedy drama
"Burr Oaks," by D. K. and M. D. Higgins, of
Chicago, was presented for the first time to-night,
and had a favorable reception. It presents con
siderable crude strength.
Filibusters Moving 1.
Ket West, May 11.—Castra has positively left,
