TREACHERY TO THE CITY ENCOUR
A Minneapolis newspaper which curses St.
Paul by doing its mechanical work in this
city, indulged a few days ago in flippant
falsehood relative to Rice park, and ribald
abuse of the committee on parks, because
they have made that beautiful square one of
the most delightful- resorts which graces any
city. The general verdict of our citizens
and strangers visiting the city as well, is that'
the committee on parks have made Rice
park the pride and ornament of our ;ty.
The throngs which congregate there thr. .i
--out every pleasant day and evening, reminds
one of Madison square, New York, the great
inside breathing place of the metropolis.
Aid. Van Slyke, the chairman of the com
mittee on parks, is especially entitled to
credit and thanks for his faithful discharge
of his public duties, never allowing his pri
vate business to retard his public service. To
be blackguarded and abused by such a
traitorous sheet as the one in question, is
the highest compliment a faithful official
need desire. • ' ."' :'
On the same page with the villainous at
tack on the commtttee on parks appears an
editorial, of which the following is an ex
The stupid and silly assertion of the Minneap
olis Tribune that our report of the opening of
the new chamber of commerce building left room

the Minneapolis chamber of commerce has, from
its origin, received more encouragement and sup
port from the Pioneer Press than from Any other
Read the italics. This traitorous sheet
rushes to vindicate itself in the eyes of Min
neapolis, and prove that it is a loyal Minne
apolis sheet, not only by the assertion above,
but . by seeking occasion to ridicule and
abuse St. Paul in the same breath.
But why shouldn't it, when the Jobber's
Union, composed of the leading wholesale
men of St. Paul, gives it encouragement, by
circulating its traitorous issues? Why not
be loyal to Minneapolis to catch their business
and disloyal to St. Paul when it is just as pop
lar down here? Let the Jobber's Union tell
us why not?
ENGLISH Hi: \Y~O~F~JiLAINE.
The London Times devotes nearly an en
tire page to a review of the first volume of
Blaiue's "Twenty Years in Congress." ;It
commences by saying that Englishmen have
nothing to do with Mr. Blame as a politician
but simply as a historian, and that, in this
respect, Blame has made the task an easy
cue for the English reader. "His book," it
says, "is in no sense a party
manifesto, it is a careful narative,
popular but not undignified in
v style, and remarkably fair and moderate in
tone. He has expressed a decided opinion
on all the issues of the civil war, but he . ; is
able to appreciate the .arguments, 'and re '
spect the motives of those whom he holds to
have been most widely mistaken."
The Times finds occasion to defend Eng
land against the charges made by.Mr. Blame
in his criticisms of the "action of foreign
powers. It proceeds to point out that if the
students of American ■. history will carefully
gcan events of the" period •of the civil war
they will find the -position of England was
aot ". greatly diverse to that of a very large
lection'"-'of '1 tkif.:" Republican party-/ of j
this country. This section was quite as
anxious as England that the north and the
south should separate. There were thous
ands of Republicans who feared that the in
terference of the administration with slavery
■was a mistake. As the Times says, "the war
was not a war for the abolition of slavery;
to the end there were many Republicans who
feared that the president's anti-slavery poli
cy would be the ruin of their party. If the
doubts and fears of this section
had prevailed, if slavery had not been abol
ished, the maintenance of the Union was
hardly to be desired; north and south would
have been more prosperous, more peaceable,
and better governed apart. Long before the
war, earnest men in the north who hated
slavery, but did not see their way to its
abolition, had spoken of separation as a pos
sible solution (li j»the difficulties which beset
them. All doubter 3 have been converted
by the evfctt; no American
party desires to revive the old contro
versies; and most Englishmen now agree
in thinking that the maintenance of the
Union was a benefit to the world. Why
should not Englishmen be admitted to the
benefit of the act of oblivion which American
parties have passed as between themselves."
Upon the whole the Temes' treatment of the
book is complimentary. It commends
Blame's judgment, and the fairness with
which he treats his political opponents. It
winds up its long summary of the contents
of the work by congratulating Mr. Blame on
the manner in which he has accomplished
the flrst installment of his work.
There are three churches in Naples where the
services are rendered iv the English tongue.
These churches are known as the Church of En
gland chapel, the Presbyterian chapel, and the
Wesleyan chapel. All three are fine edifices,
and are situated in the part of the city
where foreigners do "most congregate." The
services of the Church of England and of the
Presbyterians have the largest attendance of
English-speaking hearers; while the Wesleyans
have a larger audience of Italian Protestants at
their second service than at the one where the
preaching is in English.
A French physician has written a hook in op
position to ear-rings, asserting that the wearing
of these ornaments often cuts the delicate text
ures of the ear, frequently making them bleed,
often ulcerating, and invariably elongating them
to a size Dame Mature never intended. The
London Queen approves of the French criticism,
and says it is "high time that iv common with
other barbarisms, we sent ear-rings into the
limbo of things done with and forgotten."
A giddy Blame organ has the small wit to say
that Washington belles are having the names of
their lovers indellibly "tattooed on their arms."
And the smart Aleck gives himself away by add
ing, "this is to help the memory in keeping a
record of all of them," which is the reason of
Blame's "tattooes," the public want his record
where it can be seen.

Literary Notes from the Century Co.
The Century magazine, which has jugt pnb
lifhod President EHot's plea for a new and wider
meaning of the phrase, "A Liberal Education,"
is about to publish a numb3r of papers bearing
directly upon the study of Greek literature. The
first of these is an illustrated paper on "A Greek
play at Cambridge," England, the archosology of
which performance was iooked after by Dr.
Waldstein, the young American who has charge
of the Fitz-Wiliiam museum at Cambridge. In
addition to these will appear before long Mr.
Stillman's illustrated series, giving an account of
his yacht voyage "On the Track of Ulysses,"
undertaken especialyl for the Century. Other
papers on the same general subject by other wri

Frank R. Stockton, who is expected home
from Europe during the summer, has devoted his
absence to story-writing, as well as to sight see
ing. He will contribute to the July Century a
short story called "The Reversible Landscape,"
in which he will write of a kind of art which
"cannot be too high." This will be followed
in a subsequent number of The Century by
another droll story by the same author, entitled
"The Remarkable Wreck of the Thomas Hyke,"
and later by a bit of the topsy-turvy in which
Stockton excels, entitled "A Tale of Negative
Gravity." Apropos of Mr. Stockton's "The Lady,
or The Tiger?" which has just appeared in book
form in a collection of short stories, it is said that
soon after its first appearance in The Century,
where it attracted a great deal of attention and
was the subject of much comment and guessing the
author received a note from a member of a well
know literary club in London, saying that he had
read the story aloud one evening to the members
present, and after discussion a vote had been
taken and had resulted in a tie; six votiiig that it
was the tiger which was behind the mysterious
door And the same number believing that the un
happy combatant would find the rival of the
Princess. To settle the matter^ the note went
on to say, the writer took the liberty of asking
the author for a decision. Mr. Stockton humor
ously replied that he hadn't as yet arrived at a
solution of the problem, and that that was the
reason the story was left as it is. He intimated
that this was an advantage, because for the price
of one magazine the reader can have whichever
ending he prefers.

THE ST. PAUL SUNDAY GLOBE. SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 15, 1884.
Queen Victoria is regarded as the most
strictly proper of royal personages. The first
years of her reign were signalized by a costly
sacrifice on the altar of propriety. The vic
tim was Lady Flora Hastings, and her autopsy
proved dropsy, but not dereliction. Her
father, Lord Moira, and family were
suppressed from ■ office and from
court, and the Unfortunate lady herself done
to death by evil tongues. But propriety was
appeased, and the consequences were not
regarded. The attempt was praisewortUy,
even if the demonstration was a failure.
The world has been edified at the salutary
example that was made of
Col. Valentine Baker some years ago
for an unsuccessful attempt to kiss a young
English woman in a railway carriage. He
lost his rank in the British arm)-, was ostra
cized by society and finally expatriated by
the pressure of public opinion. In foreign
service his bravery and dashing military ex
ploits have subdued the most influential of
bis countrymen into regret at
the loss of so brilliant a
soldier to England. An effort at one
time for his restoration was almost success
ful except for Queen Victoria's stern disap
probation of the attempt.
All moral people were elated at the pro
priety of 60 powerful a censor, but now
the belief of such credulous persons is
weakened by the reported action of her ex
cellent majesty in regard to
her queer son-in-law that was,
and is to be encored in
the same character, indeed without any worth
mentioning, as the husband of his sister-in
law the princess Beatrice. Here is truly a
contradictory business for the head of the En
glish church conniving at a marriage which
is forbidden by this clarified, purified Re
formed well-spring of faith, and which has
not as yet received the sanction of harmo
nious parliamentary consent for legality.
Naturally this action of the good Victoria is
shocking enough, because she is the defender
of the faith who should be above maneuver
ing and match-making in such an overt and
scandalous way. But the stunning part of
the business is, that she has bought off the
morganatic wife of Ludwig, the Grand
Duke of Hesse her whilom son-in
law for a sum of twenty-five thousand
pounds cash, and a guaranteed income of
ten thousaud pounds a year—outside Ger
man}' or England. This ultra-yirtuous good
Queen Victoria shows Valentine Baker no
quarter because of his frustrated kiss in a
railwa}' carriage. He is dismissed from tho
army and banished from England as a mon
ster of immorality. Maybe he was, but his
trial did not prove much more than an in
discretion. But then, her majes
ty didn't want him as a son-in-law, and that
makes all the difference in the world. When
she wants a son-in law for a second term she
is willing to put up a goodly sum of money,
and that counts more than any thing else
with this thrifty sovereign. Counts more for
a fact than any regard for the happiness of
the living obstacle of a woman—Mme. Kolo
mine, once Princess Captzka. Counts more
than the claims of decency, and maternal
pride, and clean-handed consistency it
seems, and comes to bargaining with a dis
carded Parisian favorite for a husband for
It appears incredible but so the cool record
reads. And hereafter we must regard the
good, the austerely virtuous Queen
Victoria, as no better than Mrs. Jones,
Brown or Robinson anxious to marry off a
daughter, and not remarkably scrupulous
nor sensitive as to methods. The only dif
ference between the crowned match maker
and her commoner congeners is that they
would scarcely intrigue for bargain or buy so
poor and burdensome a eon-in-law as
Louis, Grand Duke of Hesse Darmstadt.
His paltry dukedum is a part of the German
Empire, and contains 2,806 square miles,
with a population of less than a million. He
is not, it will be inferred, an excessively rich
man, and the largest share of his income was
cut off by the death of his wife, the right
handed one, once Princess Alice of Eng
land. Her letters published not long ago
reveal that not withstanding generous al
lowances from the British government the
ducal position was rather hard pushed to sus
tain itself in befitting state. The death of
the Princess Alice it will be remembered
was the result of kissing her child dying of
diptheria. It recalls a story current at the
time of Lord Salisbury the eminent Tory
When Beaconsfleld in the House of Lords
announced the death of the princess, saying
that the incident of her self-sacrificing affec
tion deserved to be cut upon intaglios and
"Blood will tell," murmured Lord Salis
bury to the peer beside him, "the Jewish
mind run 9to jewelry."
Now, then, it is evident that the heroic,
motherly, and lovely Alice of England was
not held in inconsolable memory by her
poor, purchasable, dull duke.
He met the fascinating Russian dame after
her princely husband had caused the Patri
arch of the Greek church to sunder the
matrimonial tie in consequence of contra
band behavior which made even the tolerant
world of Paris draw the line. Countenance
of the desirable sort was withdrawn, and
the beautiful woman whose loveliness
had dazzled the gay capital
of the world, whose toilettes
set the fashion, and whose peerless giftp
brought genius to the acknowledgement, left
the city of her supreme sway disowned, after
five brief years of triumph. Then the hom
age of the Grand Duke Louis of Hesse Darm
stadt became reckless enough for a left
handed marriage which has since worried th,e
austere queen of England into buying off
the "obstacle", that she may nominate
Louis for a second term of son-in-law.
The morganatic Madame bag 3 a
lot of money, and can return to her entic
ing Paris, saying softly to herself "After me,
the Princess Beatrice." Her trade with Vic
toria will give her renewed prestige, and may
hap the Princess Demidoff, and the Princess
Anna Murat de Mouehy will accord her some
of the favor forfeited ere she was of sufficient
consequence to bring the good Victoria R.
and I to make terms of transfer with
her. For the rest, the ci-devant
Princess Captzka has done well in consent
ing to have Louis entered for a secon d term
of son-in-law. He is a dear one whatever
else he is not. He has his price, on the same
terms that Fanny Davenport has her hus
band, whose name is Price, co-incident with
the fact. Fanny and Beatrice have so much
in common "boughten" husbands as rustics
sometimes word it.
"Once in a while" says Mrs. Harris "I am
tempted to applaud the morganatic wives,"
and the privateering sort of women who se
cure what the world regards as desirable
husbands, and would fain compaßs for its
daintiest daughters. Society is at the game
itself in ways that the world sanctions, but
it condemns without 6tint when the rule
works the way I am disposed to applaud
once in a while—when the men are worth it.
But alas, society in order to be revenged on
such irregular business, immediately lowers
the valuation of the success by eliminating
it from all its quotations, and then what is it
"Yet," concludes Mrs. Harris, "the ob
ject and methods of Miss Dove and Miss
Hawk being almost identical, what justice is
there in giving Miss Dove the millions, and
the position as the case maybe, together with
the glory of conquest, and ignoring the
equal merit of enterprise and achievement
to Miss Hawk, who needs Badly all she has
Different antecedent records? "Stuff,"
says Mrs. Harris, disdainfully, hasn't the
good and austerely virtuous Victoria of Eng
land, Head of the Established Church, just
settled the question for the man and the
woman with m-o-u-e-yJ
NO SHIPPERS COMPLAIN.
The Northwestern Traffic Association
Can't Agree on Bail and
Ana the Public Will Have Some Benefit
from the Free for All
President Hill, Contractor Shepard and
Others Visit the Great Falls
The Northwestern Traffic Association in
Mr. Frank B. Clark, general freight agent
of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St, Paul road,
has returned from Chicago, where he has
been for several days attending the meeting
of general freight agents of the roads in the
Northwestern Traffic association. The asso
ciation adjourned without coming any
nearer to an adjustment of their difficulties
than they were the day before. Neither the
St. Paul <& Omaha nor the Milwaukee & St.
Paul would budge an inch from the position
they had taken heretofore regarding the rates
on business in connection with the Lake
Superior Transit company's steamers, and so
long as this matter was not adjusted it was
deemed unadvisable to consider the troubles
regarding the division of business via Peoria
and the Central lowa railroad to Keithsburg,
and thence by the upper Mississippi river
steamers, and the difficulties regarding
the division of rates with the Manitoba roads.
The Milwaukee & St. Paul people claim
that the St. Paul & Omaha people vio
lated the pooling agreement by making rates
via the Washburn route without consulting
the other roads in the association, and most
of the latter roads think the Milwaukee & St.
Paul's position correct. The St. Paul &
Omaha people say they have to compete with
the St. Paul & Duluth road, and have there
fore the right to make the same rates via
Washburn as the Duluth road makes to Du
luth. The other roads deny that it has any
such right, and that it yielded that right to
the association when it accepted 10 per cent,
extra from the pool for its "Washburn busi
ness. The Milwaukee & St. Paul people say
that so long as the Omaha
line does not accord to the
pool the figbt to meet the rates made by the
Duluth road, so long it will continue to make
an equally low rate via Milwaukee and Chi
cago in connection with the lake lines. The
Omaha line people claim that the Milwau
kee & St. Paul is making a 45-cent rate via
lake and rail, while they are taking no busi
ness less than 50 cents, which is the regular
rate (five cents less than the all-rail rate),
and the fact that nearly all the flour business
from the northwest was going by the Mil
waukee & St. Paul showed that this road was
making a lower rate.
As matters stand at present there seems to
be but little chance of fixing up the north
western difficulties before the end of the
navigation season, as the St. Paul <fc Omaha
is said to have a contract with the Lake Su
perior Transit company which it cannot
Advance in East Hound Rates.
The joint executive committee at its
meeting in New York decided to advance
east bound freight rates on seventh and
eighth class 5 cents per 100 pounds, to take
effect June 24, and that another advance of
five cents per 100 pounds be made July 21.
There will be two rates hereafter on eighth
class. Flour, grain, mill-feed, bran, and
kindred articles will be 20 cents per 100
pounds after June 24, and 25 cents after
July 21, while the rates on fertilizers and
other articles in eighth class will be 25 cents
after June 24, and 30 cents after July 21.
This will make the rate on the
last named articles the same as seventh class
or provisions. The action of the joint exec
utive committee in dividing eighth class in
order to secure a five cent higher rate on
such articles as are ordinarily not shipped by
lake, is greatly condemned by freight men,
and they predict that the arrangement can
nat be carried out. The rates on those arti
cles have always been five cents less than
the rates on provisions, and shippers will
not submit to the arbitrary action of the joint
executive committee. The articles cannot
stand the additional rate, and if insisted
upon shipments cannot be made by rail.
Why Mr. Hill Went West.
The Helena, (Mont.) Indqiendent of the
10th has the following about J. J. Hill and
J. J. Hill, president of the St. Paul, Min
neapolis & Manitoba railroad and the prin
cipal owner of the Great Falls and the vast
water power of the Missouri river at and be
low this place, left by private conveyance
yesterdey morning, accompanied by Col.
D. C. Shepard, engineer, Col. C. A. Broad
water, and Theo. Gibson, to visit and inspect
the great property at the falls owned by Mr.
Hill and partners.
Relays of horses were sent in advance on
Friday last, so that no time will be lost in
going and returniug. Sun river valley, the
beautiful country surrounding Great Falls,
and the valuable coal mines at Sand Coolet
will be visited, with a view to future devel
opments in that region of the tine water
power and of the surrounding country.
Mr. Hill, and Mr. Shepard, accompanied
by Col. Broadwater, arrived from St. Paul
last Friday evening. The same evening
Mr. Hill and Col. Bradwater proceeded to
Butte to inspect the mines of that wonderful
mining region,.returning by private convey
snee over the Boulder route to Jefferson
City. Mr. Hill is a big-brained, thoroughly
live western man, full of enterprise and
push, and the wealthiest man in the entire
northwest. We are pleased to welcome him
to Montana, and more than pleased to hear
his favorable comments upon Montana, and
its bright future. The gentlemen could not

most enterprising business men in the terri
Mr. Hill will remain in Helena a day or
two on liisTt'turn from the falls, to get ac
quainted with our business men. It is pro
posed by our business men to hold a confer
ence with Mr. Hill on, his return to Helena
from Great Falls, relative to matters in which
Helena is largely concerned —principally the
Benton railroad. At a meeting yesterday
the board of trade appointed a committee for
the purpose, consisting of Messrs. E. D. Ed

The part 3' left Helena ou Monday morning
last and arrived at the leaving of Sun river,
one hundred miles distant, at 6:30 in the
evening, where they remained over night.
On the next morning (Tuesday) they took
an early breakfast and drove to the first fall
(the Black Eagle Falls), fourteen miles, by
six o'clock. They also visited the wonderful
fountain and the beautiful Rainbow Falls,
three or four miles below, and then spent a
great part of the day in inspecting the won
derful coal mines at Sand Coulee, which ex
ceeded in quantity and quality all that had
been represented to them by the experts who
had visited them before. The same evening
they drove to Sun River village, twenty-
Beven miles, and remained over night. They
expressed themselves charmed with this
Yesterday (Wednesday) they returned to
Helena, a distance of ninety miles, and ar
rived at six o'clock in the evening.
The whole journey of about three hundred
miles was performed in three days. Ten re
lays of nooses were used. The whole trip
was most satisfactory, even exceeding the
expectations of Mr. Hill and his friends.
The Northern Pacific road has issued a cir
cular stating that an agency has been estab

Building 1 Their Hopes on Democratic
Division over the Tariff
The Saratoga Convention's Chance to Select
the Man to be Nominated Next
TSpecial Telegram to the Globe. 1
■Washington, June 14.—The Republicans con
cede that the nomination of Cleveland would be a
strong one for the Democrats to make, but say at
the same time that no ticket the Democracy can
put in the field could be as strong as would have
been Tilden and Hendrlcks.. Tbe withdrawal of
Tilden, Republican politicians claim, is the worst
blow the Democrats have received or could re
ceive at this juncture. Republicans figure it
out thus: The Democratic party with the old
ticket could have avoided the tariff issue as
between themselves. They could have simply
adopted the old tariff plank of the old
platform and the old ticket would have made the
thing go down. The way it now stands the party
is core on the subject of the tariff
cannot stand much rasping. Three-fourth of
the convention will Tie for the tariff reform as re
presented by Carlisle and Morrison. The other
fourth will be ranged under the banner of Ran
dall. The large majority of revenue reformers
will not be content with anything short of the
most specific declarations on the question of the
tariff. The deeper they can cut into the
shins of the Pennsylvania Democrats
the better they will like it.
Had Tilden continued in the field there was a
way out by compromise on the old tariff for rev
enue only. Now there is in the judgment of
many no room for compromise. Men of the
Hurd school are more desirous of putting a fire
brand at the broadest part of the trowsers of Mr.
Randall than to carry the national ticket. The
Randall wing conld have caught on the old ticket
plank Tj'ith Tilden on it, but what will they do in
case the tariff tinkerers have their own way at
Chicago? They will be driven to stultify
their tariff record in bolt. Will they bolt?
There are Democrats in congress who say they
will. It is 1 even said that they will not swallow
the old Hancock tariff plank. The lines have
been more tightly drawn since 187 G. If the
convention of July should endorse the Morrison
bill and declare for a revenue tariff will the par
ty Democrrts who bolted the Morrison bill swal
low their dish of crow? If not what will they do
about it? Thus gossip runs in a considerable
It is not exactly understood what Cleveland's
tariff ideas are but as Dorsheimer says they are
satisfactory to him (Dorsheimer) the plain in
ference is the New York governor is a tariff-for
revenue-only man." Nothing short of this
would be satisfactory to Dorsheimer. Nearly
every one of the proposed candidates mentioned
are tariff reformers. Cleveland and McDonald
ate in the same boat with Carlisle and Morrison.
The impression is here that the Democrats can
not escape the dialema of the tariff at Chicago
and that the free traders will make the issue of
free trade vs. protection so strong that it will
have a tendency to disrupt the party.
There is apparently no fear among the
Morrison-Carlisle wing on this score.
They are satisfied the protection minority of
the party will stand up to the rack, fodder or no
fodder, and they take an insane delight in the
prospect of being able to compel them to do it.
As the Saratoga convention is likely to decide
the question of the Democratic candidacy all in
terest now centers in that. New York has the
nomination in her grasp. All she has to do is to
close her fingers on it by nominating the man
with some degree of unanimity. If this man
tshould be Cleveland it is ovident here that
it would he accepted as a satisfactory
choice. This means Cleveland is enjoying a
continuons boom for the last forty-eight hours.
There are rumors afloat, however, that Tammany
hall prefers Slocum. This rumor is chassed
directly to Slocum's friends, who are just now
very active. They declare that John Kelly is
already committed against Cleveland, and that he
Is equally committed for Slocum. The truth or
falsity of these rumors must be looked for in
New York. If New York should present
Slocum instead of Cleveland it is believed the
former would have the edge at Chicago.
Saturday's Session of the House.
Washington, June 14.—The house resumed
consideration of the amendments in dispute be
tween the two houses upon the postofiice ap
propriation bill, the pending amendment being
that incorporated by the senate appropriating
3185,000 for special mail facilities on trunk lines.
Mr. Hoar moved that the house recede from
its disagreement to the amendment and agree to
the same with an amendment increasing the ap
propriation to $250,000. Upon this motion a
long debate ensued and is still progressing.
Finally Horr"s motion was agreed to; yeas 120,
Mr. Horr moved that the house concur in the
remaining amendment increasing from 54,000,000
to 34,300,000 the appropriation for railway post
After debate the motion was lost; yeas 94,
nays 117, and on motion of Townshend the house
further insisted on its disagreement to the amend
This completed the consideration of the bill.
Mr* Hopkins, of the committee on public
buildings, submitted a report upon the investiga
tion in regard to the selection of a site for public
buildings at Brooklyn, N. Y. The report is
accompanied by resolutions declaring the charges
of corrupt or collusive action on the part of the
! secretary of the treasury or some of his subordi
nates have not been sustained.
Mr. Thompson, u*uder special order, called up
for discussion and action various bills previously
reported from the committee on Pacific railroads.
Mr. Randall, under instruction from the com
mittee on appropriations, raised the question of
consideration in favor of the deficiency bill.
By a vote of yeas bfl, nays 108, the house re
fused to considei the business called up by Mr.
Thompson, who thereupon asked it to be made a
special order for Wednesday next.
Mr. Morse objected.
On motion of Mr. Townshend the vote just
taken was reconsidered and the question having
been again submitted the house decided without
division to take up Pacific railroad business. The
first bill considered was one requiring the Pacific
railroad companies to pay the cost of conveying,
snrveying and examining lands granted to and
earned by those companies. In the event of fail
ure of any company to pay this cost within
ninety days of the passage of the act, the secre
tary of the interior shall inform its president or
treasurer of the amount of cost of surveying,
etc.. and if the campany shall not pay such cost
within sixty days after receipt of the notice, the
attorney general 6hall institute suits against the
companp in defanlt.
Mr. Crisp, of Ceorgia, made a strong argument
as to the necessity f'<r the passage of the bill.
Pending further discus ion the house adjourned.

Opponents in the
Making: It Appear That None Named
Are Entirely Available-
Cleveland Apparently the New York Favor
ite, Though Flower's Friends
Don't Give Up.
Another Tattoo Mark For the Republican
Candidate for the Presidency.
(Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Washington, June 14,—The uncertainty as to
whether Cleveland's nomination is preferred by
Mr. Tilden maddens the politicians, and it is
generally admitted that if the national conven
tion were held immediately Cleveland would be
nominated upon the hypothesis ol his accepta
bility to Tilden. Private dispatches from Albany
c'aim that Cleveland's friends will contest the
Saratoga convention, and the delegation to Chi
cago will be instructed to vote tor him as a unit,
Flower Btanding no chance whatever. Bayard's
friends, who have recently been disheartened at
the attacks on his Dover speech, were re-assured
to-day by a leading editorial in the New York
Sun reviewing his Dover speech, and declaring
that while there is no question that Bayard
was then opposed to President Lincoln's war
policy, and mistaken in thinking it better to let
the seceding states go, there is not in that speech
a single expression of sympathy with treason, no
single sentence, phrase at word giving color to
the charge that Bayard was disloyal. This editor
ial is interpreted as reflecting Tilden's opinion
concerning Bayard's speech, and operates to call
a halt to those who, much as they desire Bay
ard peasonally, have pronounced his
candidacy impracticable and his nomination de
structive of success. In consequence Bayard's
boom received additional strengto, although not
sufficient to check Cleveland's preponderance.
All sorts of rumors are flying about respecting .
the relations existing between Tilden and Cleve
land, on one side, aud Kelly and Cleveland on
the other. A leading and well informed Dem
ocrat stated he had reason to know that while
Tilden thought well of Cleveland he did not be
live he could carry New York. His vetoes of the
five cent elevated railroad fare bill and the bil
appropriating money for the Catholic orphan
asylum would injure him immensely, and he was
held responsible for the nomination and defeat of
Maynard, a prohibitionist, on the Democratic
state ticket last year. He did not question the
propriety of Cleveland's motives in these vetoes
but the injurious effect with certain classes was
indisputable. The gentleman stated further he
was in possession of information direct from
Tilden that Tilden had determined not to inter
fere on behalf of any candidacy, as he could not
afford to be held responsible for possible defeat.
He had preferences, of conrse, and was particu
larly friendly to Payne, Hoadly, Bayard and
Eandall, but declarations direct or indirect
favoring any candidate were embarrassing and
he could not and would not interfere. Although
it is asserted John Kelly has committed himself
to Cleveland's support, if he is nominated, his
preference is for Bayard. The quarrel between
Kelly and Cleveland originally growing out of
Cleveland's demand that Senator Grady, a Tam
many man, should not be returned to the legis
lature, because he was personally and politically
objectionable, has never been reconciled. There
fore, as between Cleveland and Flower, Kelly
Flower's friends claim he has 164 out of 213
delegates to the state conven
tion already chosen, 45 being for
Cleveland. The convention consists of 382
delegates and if Flower secures but 28 of the
remaining 65 delegates to be chosen he will con
trol the convention and the delegation will be
instructed for him as a whole—the unit rule
always prevailing in New York Democratic 6tate
conventions. Flower's opponents say this claim
is not well predicated, that the boys have been
"playing him for a sucker," and having emptied
Flower's "bar'l" will unload him at the first op
portunity. A Democratic member who supports
Flower, said that unless declared for by a de
cided majority, he would not be a candidate.
Flower's friends believe he is stronger in New
York than any other man named, and they pro
pose to submit the question to the party conven
tion and abide by its decision. If in the face of
the whole state adminiftration, and in opposition
to the bosses and machine, the Democracy of
New Tork shall declare for Flower, that will
demonstrate his strength. If it does not so de
clare Flower will submit and cordially snpport
the choice of his party. That is all there is of
Flower's candidacy. He is not seeking self
aggrandizement. If he is not shown to be the
strongest hie will get out and help nominate that
Senator Bayard is represented to have said to
some gentlemen who called on him about his
Dover speech, that there was nothing in it he
wanted to retract. He stood upon his utterances
in that speech. He considered it sound and log
ical, and would like to see it published broad
A number are talking about Pendleton or
Hoadly for second place, but there names do not
create an impprssion. Those opposed to Pen
dleton or Hoadly say it would not do, because to
place either on the ticket would
be to practically make Ohio a great
hinging point. Ohio is an October state, and
there is not much chance of the Democrats car
rying it. The effect of its going Republican in
state election with an Ohio Democratic on the
national ticket would be a consideration too
great to warrant the risk.
merrick's dxnamed man.
There was considerable talk to-day over Mer
rick's testimony before the Springer committee
wherein he refused to disclose the name of the
person who urged him not to place Bosler on the
stand to testify against Dorsey in the star route
trial. It is openly charged that the person who
thus protested Bosler was Blame's Pennsylvania
factotum, and a custodian of Blame's secrets.

THE SPRINGER COMMITTEE.
Merrick Still Testifying—He Thinks
the Evidence Strong- Enough to
Washington, June 14.— R. T. Merrick con
tinued his testimony before the Springer commit
tee to-day. The witness said Hutchinson, fore
man of the grand jury which failed to indict Kel
logg, called at his house last night and maintain
ed that he, Hutchinson, was correct in his testi
mony, that the jury expected Price to supple
ment Walsh's testimony. Merrick told Hut chin
son he must be mistaken, as it was known Price
was not available and could not appear. Mer
rick insisted to Hutchinson that the latter must
have misunderstood Bliss. Hutchinson had
declared that Bliss promised the jury that Price
should follow Walsh in his testimony before the
grand jury. Hutchinsou insisted to Merrick
that he was not mistaken, that Bliss did posi
tively promise that Price should appear after
Walsh and testify before the jury in the Kellogg
case. Hutchinson Btoutly maintained his posi
tion, and said that as Price did not appear after
it was promised by Bliss the jury did not indict
Kellogg. Merrick said his understanding with
the other counsel was that Price was not expect
ed before the grand jury, and hence his firmness
in insisting at first that Hntchinson must
have been mistaken in saying Bliss
had promised to produce Price, Price was sub
sequently promised immunity if he would testify
against Kellogg, and Price prepared a statement
which witness considered sufficient to fasten
guilt upon Kellogg. Bliss was strongly opposed
to using Price as a witness against Kellogg, and
when the attorney general finally decided to ac
cept Price, Bliss declared he would withdraw
from the case, and did withdraw for one day, and
witness and Ker went on without him. Finally
Bliss was persuaded to return.
Speaking of the indictment against Kellogg,
Merrick said in his judgment it was as good and
as solid as any that ever went into a court of jus
tice. Merrick claimed that the payment of
money to Kellogg, and not the passage of a draft
to him, was the offense. He could not say why
that issue was not need, as he did not try the

he, Bliss called upon Kellygg in pursuance to a
letter from the attorney general. Kellogg ad
mitted he had asked Price for money for politi
cal uses. That Price claimed he had no money,
but finally said he had some postoffice drafts and
if Kellogg conld get them cashed, he would let
a part of the money go for political use if de
sired. Kellogg maintained that he got no benefit
from the money, but he tcok that means of get
ting the money for a political purpose from
Price who was interested in a political object ia
view in Louisiana.
Meriek denied Walsh's-statement that he, Mer
rick, had said Secretary Chandler approached
him in behalf of Kelloge. Chandler had never
spoken to him on the subject.
Walsh's testimony was to the effect that Mer
rick had told him Bliss had betrayed the interest
of the government was referred to and Merrick
was asked if he had said that. Witness said
when Walsh first disclosed to him the evidence
he had given to the grand jury about Kellogg, he,
Merrick, was very much surprised that he had
not been told of it by Bliss.
He might have said in substance to Walsh, that
if his statement was correct and true, the gov
ernment had been betrayed, or something to that
effect. Bliss had not thought the testimony as
strong against Dorsey as against others, and had
said that if Dorsey was out others could be com
mitted. Witness admitted he felt some suspic
ion growing out of his knowledge of the past
close relations between Bliss aud Dorsey. Ho
did not believe Bliss would be delinquent in big
duty, but he did believe that in his heart Bliss
did not want Dorsey convicted. Merrick said he
looked upon Dorsey as the originator and center
of the whole scheme, that he inspired it and was
the master mind. Bliss will be heard again on
The Future Metropolis of Lac gui Parla
County & Western Minnesota.
The Town in the Hands of Wealthy and Pub
lie Spirited Men Determined Upon
Building a No. 1 "Diva.
[ Lac gui Parle Press.]
Last summer when it was first rumored
that the Wisconsin Minnesota & Pacific rail
road would extend its line through Lac gui
Parle county, Mr. John Kerwin, an energet
ic and wealthy citizen, of St. Paul, with an
eye to business conceived the idea that an
investment In real estate in this county
would ultimately prove profitable. Acting
accordingly upon this happily conceived no
tion he visited Lac gui Parle county, and af
ter a week or so looking the country over he
made some large purchases of land among
which was section 21, upon which the survey
or is now at work staking out a town. This
section is traversed from west to east
through the center by the west branch of the
Lac gui Parle river and upon the
north bank of this stream is located
the future city of "Dawson,"
named in honor of Hon. "William Dawson,
president of the bank of Minnesota, of St.
Paul, who with Mr. Kerwin and some others
are joint owners of the town 6ite. The rail
road enters the section at the south-east cor
ner and leaves it at the north-west corner
running diagonally through the town. The
part of the section platted for town purposes
is the east half of the north-west quarter,
commencing at the river bank and running
to the north line of the section. The town
is beautifully located on high day prairie
land, commanding a fine view of the sur
rounding country which is one of the finest
that the sky of Minnesote covers. There is
not a slough in the section and every part
of it could be used for building purposes.
No better selection for a town site eould>
have been made and with the railroad run- j
ning so centrally through the country which
is universally admitted to be the choicest ag-'
ricultural Region in the great Minnesota vul»
ley, there is every reason to believe that the,
rapid growth of Dawson to an important'
place among western cities is only a matter;
of a little time. The town proprietors, all of
whom are wealthy men, assure us that the
sale of lots will be conducted upon a liberal
basis and everything possible will be done to
promote the growth and prosperity of the
place. Every encouragement will be given
to legitimate enterprises and nothing like
monopoly will be attempted in any direction.
A public park will be laid out and a square
will be set aside as a donation at some time '
in the future to the country for court house,
purposes, should the people see fit to move
the county seat to the new town.
We are informed by Mr. Kerwin that he
has the assurance from the president of the
road that the cars will be running to the Lac
gui Parle river by the Ist of August. It is
probable therefore that no rush of building
will begin in Dawson before that date, as by
waiting all the mateiial can be piled on the
ground from the cars. This will be ample
time for the work of building before winter
sets in, and we predict that by the time snow
flies, Dawson will contain a population of
from 400 to 1,000. Hurrah for Dawsonl
A BETTER CONVENTION.
Again will fair Chicago's shore
A mighty gathering see,
When there shall meet in hall and street
The spokesman of the free,
Who utter still the people's will,
Recording their decree.
In dark corruption's devious ways
They will not wish to grope,
Nor will they need, to back their creed,
The magic power of "soap;"
But they will voice an honest choice.
And name the people's hope.
No votes wili there he bought and sold,
Upon the Elkin plan,
Nor will they name, to mark their shame.
A variegated man;
But all their talk and daily walk.
The world may closely scan.
Though not intrenched in place and power.
For strength they will not lack;
They know that they will have that day.
The masses at their back,
Who pushes them on, the course to run,
And make the rascals pack.
The duty they will need to do
Is mighty and sublime—
To punish yet, and not too late,
A foul and hideons crime,
And prove that truth, with endless youth,
Dies not through lapse of time.
Then may their heads be clear and cool,
While all their hearts are warm;
And when they fight for truth and right
And gneuine reform,
Their nominees will start a breeze
That soon will be a storm!

Heavy Rains in California.
San Francisco, June 13.—Heavy rain*
the past week have inflicted great damage to
crops, although June rains are not unusual
in this state. Never, during any year since
1850, have they been so heavy as this year.
The signal service bureau in this city reports
the greatest fall in June for the last thirty
four years,one inch and twoone-hundredths.
At Sacramento, which is a better indicative
point for the whole state, the highest rainfall
for same month during the same period wai
one inch and ten one-hundredths. From
the first of the present month up to noon to
day two inches and thirty-seven one-hund
redths have fallen. More than twice the quan
tity tor any preceding month of June. Re
ports received to-day from fifteen different
localities, announce the hay crop as almost
completely destroyed, and wheat and barley
seriously injured. The losses in some sec
tions are estimated as high as 10 per cent, of
the estimates of two weeks ago.
Edwin T Smith secretary of the state board
of agriculture, in a communication to the
Associated Press to-day, says: The expense
of spreading and curing the damaged hay
will be great, while that portion which can be
saved will be reduced at least 60 per cent, in
quality. The lodgings of grain will materi
ally affect the yield, to what extent it is im
possible, yet to determine. Should the moist
weather continue much longer, the present
losses will be largely increased, whereas a
lew days of cool, windy weather would
greatly remedy the evil.
A $20,000 Defalcation.
Buffalo, N. V., June 13.—An investiga
tion is being made of the books of Cashier
Shepard, of the New York Central freight de
partment, this city, who disappeared a few
days ago. It is believed the defalcation will
be $20,000. Shepard is doubtless sojourning
on the borders of Fort Erie, Canada. The
amounts taken are principally petty thefts,
dating back for a year, and consist in a
number of cases in double charges on
freight, pocketing the overcharge. Sbepard
led a quiet life, and it is not belieyed ho
had speculated to any extent
