YESTERDAY'S MARKETS.
The local markets were quiet and dull, with no
:hanges in leading cereals. At Milwaukee wheat
lei-lined 1 *__._. At Chicago July was ljjc
lower and August and September depreciated
J£c; corn was _;@% lower, and oats %®,}'ec low-
_r than Thursday's close ; pork declined 25c. The
stock market was heavy and depressed; specula-
tion was weak and some stocks sold at the low-
est point in years. Depression was caused chiefly
by th. assignment of Commodore Garrison.
Clevelaxd and Hoadley would make a
winning and vigorous ticket. The victorious
governors of the two great states of New York
and Ohio would have the flavor of victor at
th. outset. You could smell-it in the air, so
to speak.
The Democratic, committee for the ' Fourth
Congressional District met at Minneapolis
yesterday and decided to call the Democratic
district convention for July 17th. It will
combine the business of the convention with
a ratification meeting of the nomination of.
the next President of the United States.
Where is the Blame enthusiasm? It is
possible that Minnesota will declare for
Blame iv November, but the only ratification
meeting yet held in St. Paul was one which
was limited by an admission fee of five
dollars. Perhaps before November they will
be glad to pay five dollajs to secure at-
tendants at Blame meetings.
The celebration in London of the 50th
birthday of Spurgeon,the well-known preach-
er, awakens alarge amount of sympathy in
this country where this evangelist has many
admirers. Spurgcon has acquired reputa
tion in a legitimate way over two continents. '
He has resorted to no sensationalism in
style, subject or in action. He has not gone
among the bagnios, and the slums for the
purpose of advertising himself and securing
an audience from people who desire to gratify
a prurient curiosity. He has not taken pc-
culier views of popular dogmas, and in that
way secured attention. He is simply a plain,
unpretending speaker, not graceful in die-
tion or gesture, not finished as an orator,
not brilliant, nor scholarly, nor cul
tured. He is ' commonplace in ap
pearance and in delivery. . .He is
more than commonplace," he is even homely.
But he is a man with a great heart. He is a
man from the people, who - keeps close
to the people, - who feels as
they do, who speaks their lan-
guage, voices their sentimehts, I appreciates
their needs and their sorrows. He never
rises to the height of a finished, artistic elo
quence, bnt he talks straight to the hearts
and the feelings of his vast audiences, and
moves them as the tempest stirs the forest, •
er the fields of grain. His sermons do not
even read well; they fail to convey.the sym
pathy of his. voice, the earnestness which per-
meates every word, and carries conviction
to every listener. 7He is not Tallinage,
Beecher, or Parker, but he is greater than all
of them—he is Spurgeon.

RETURN OF TK~E ST. PAUL JOBBERS.
. Mlf excursion of the St.-Paul' Jobbers
\..i__cm came to a happy termination at eight
/o'clock Friday evening, bythe safe return of
. the .business. men and their guests. .The
daily, reports of the excursion furnished by
tim-Globe correspondents have*: exhibited
. that the expedition from • beginning . to • end
t*has-becn a surprising ovation, from the first
.pause at Le Sueur Tuesday morning to the
tin;;! one at Shakopee Friday evening.'- j This
expedition was chiefly planned by Mr. A. S.
,Ta]l_nadge, j and its success quite exceeded
his.- '- own anticipations of it 7as
well as the. expectations entertained, by all
others. It was the first of its kind,' and over
against its novelty are two important facts -
.he ■ acquaintance formed in the. region of
country visited and A with • ■ the. ■ people doing
business therein,* and the contact .between
the heads of houses ; and their ' customers.
These two facts, well established, will add
millious to the trade of St. Paul. The mem
bers of the Union'have called upon their cus
tomers, in; their own homes, have ascer
tiained their needs, and. how best to supply
them. ~ 7 • ■' *
But few of the gentlemen making the tour
of . Inspection had before, anything but su
perficial knowledge of the country " they have
now visited and seen for themselves the
wonderful present; and caught ' a glimpse
of the . grand possibilities,' of the future.
Nothiug has ever transpired in the history of
the business men of St. Paul that will re-
dound so much to their prosperity, that will
so largely increase the volume of their trade,
and bring to their doors the wealth and re
sources of a mighty empire, a region always
friendly to St.' Paul, . and now sure. to unite
its destinies with those of the already estab
lished commercial metropolis of the great
northwest.
CIRCUMSTANCES ALTER CASES.
Some of the Republican newspapers are
very indignant that a man named Gillam,
who is engaged on Puck, should have the
temerity to attack Blame. Says a Cincinnati
organ of Blaine :.-'..
''Bernard Gillam is the name of the individual
who works for Puck, and was the artist who rep-
resented Mr. Blame as the tattooed man. Mr.
Gillam is an Englishman, and has recommended
himself to a certain class of lickspittle Americans
by assailing the character and holding up to
shame and ridicule an American citizen of great
prominence, great worth, and . the champion of
the American elements of America. The assaults
by Gillam, the Englishman, on Blame, the Amer
ican, are outrages that no decent man should
countenance by a subscription to the paper that
gives circulation to his-sketches. Imagine the
fate of an American in London who should dare
a-aail, caricature, or bring into disgrace the
queen or the heir apparent. The English people
would not for an instant permit it. . The estab
lishment that would harbor such a man would
be wrecked by the loyal English." ■
This is very funny, this comparing the
candidate of a political party to the queen of
England, or the heir apparent. The idiot
who wrote it does not seem to know that the
chap he is talking of is Jim Blame from
Maine; a machine politician in nomination
for an office, and with a record not of the
best. What has he got to do with the queen
of England or the heir apparent?
On the other hand there is a feilow named
Nast who for years has been • on Harper's
Weekly, and who during all this period has
spared no effort to make ridiculous and
contemptible the Democratic party. While
doing this he was the idol of the Republicans;
his honesty, his genius, his patriotism were
without a rival. While he was thus abusing
one of the great parties of the country, no
Republican suggested that he was an En-
glishman, and that if an American were to
conduct himself in the same way towards
the queen or the heir apparent in England,
he would be lynched. Now Nast has fallen
to caricaturing his old friends, and now the
country will soon learn that he is an English-
man, and that it is scandalous that a for-
eigner should be thus allowed to abuse
Americans. •'.' ■•■'
A BISHOP'S BOOM.
While the state is noisy with the politica
hum, and while this and that favorite politi
cian is receiving his short-lived applause, the
people of Faribault have honored themselves
by recognizing in public manifestation the
immortal merit of a man whose lasting boom
is not of this world. The twenty-fifth anni
versary of Henry Benjamin Whipple's Mm
nesota Episcopate has been just commemor
ated in the beautiful town where he first fixed
his home.
If after the fashion of some old legend it
had been foretold the sparse population of
that time—a quarter of a century back—that
the prosperity and advancement of the little
hamlet 'came in the 'person of a poor and
unostentatious follower of the Cross—who
was to go upon the errands of his Master year
after year, and live the simple homespun life
of its struggling primitive inhabitants
a strangely incredible story it would have
seemed then, that memorable quarter of a
century ago.
But fate is forever weaving its wondrous
legends under our very eyes. We are not
often conscions of Its workings save in re
sults, and it is seldom granted to the great
movers in such supreme transformations of
fate.to receive their meed of acknowledg
ment in.this world. Such recognition usual
ly grows only on tombs. Bishop Whipple
has been exceptionally favored in being per
mitted to see the accomplished vision of his
life's work, and its grateful recognition by
the people of his time.
The selection of Faribault as the Cathe
dral town of his diocese, and the simultane
ous intent of making it the educational cen
tre of his denomination gave its prosperity
the splendid impetus wherewith the spare,
black-robed figure at whom the early villagers
looked as "the Episcopal bishop" will be
evermore identified.
No matter what development and progress
are yet to be, the most trying and difficult
work is done. In the interval just commem-
orated by the Faribault people, the hardest,
the most significant, and the most triumph
ant accomplishment has given the state
that headway which will make all subsequent
effort easy. -'..•.;
Minnesota is fortunate in natural advan
tages, but it has been indeed fortunate in its
representative settlers, who met the hard-
ships of its first testing experiences with the
constant heart sure of ultimate requital.
It has been the touching custom in Bishop.
Whipple's family to have a number of candles
lit in the. evening of each birthday .
corresponding with the number of his
years. It would 7 not *be possi
ble to so reckon his shining
_ieeds of public spirit, of incalculable charity,
and of deep, heartfelt benevolence. Nor is
it in the compass of fitting expression to tell
of sorrows and losses in poignant measure, *
borne with exemplary resignation.
His record and example are bright, with
suggestions and texts for the moral analyst
who would use some particular trait in illus
tration. .We will conclude by the pertinent
summary of an admirer who attended the
Faribault commemoration: "Don't forget
that the calm brain of Bishop Whipple held
the scheme of all those enterprises in the
gradual evolvment of wise, discretion,
without hampering or embarrassing his peo
ple, whose burdens were heavy enough when
crops were light and pests rife."
But then the copestone of all his civic dis
tinction is that he is a loyal, outspoken Dem
ocrat. '- AAX
TRYING TO STAMP OUT POLYGAMY
TAAy, A A WITH LEGISLATION.
The Utah bill has passed the senate and if
it shall be confirmed and become a law, con-
gress may congratulate itself that, so far as
the law-making power „is concerned,' every-
thing has been attempted that is within the
powerof legislation. The present bill seems
to cover the entire ground. :; Every marriage
shall be certified to and recorded; the women
of Utah shall not be * allowed to vote; the
functions of probate judges are shorn away
until there remains only the shadow of their
original powers; all laws jof the territory
which confer the rights of inheritance on il-
legitimate children are annulled; prosecutions
for adultery.. •"; can V' be * commenced
in the- same manner, as. other prose
cutions .7 instead ;of .' only on 7 the
complaint of -, either husband and wife as is
now the case under the laws of.the territory.
It is provided that the United States shall
have the appointment of fourteen trustees in
the corporation of the Mormon church. The
immigrating;' fund 7is abolished, and it is
made unlawful for the legislature of ' the ter
ritory to recognize any association having for
its object j the; bringing of ? persons into the
the territory for. any purpose whatever. . The
money now. in the emigration fund is Ito : be

of the association^ and the remainder ; is ' to
THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE. SATURDAY MORNING., JUNE 21, 1884:
escheat to the United States, and to bo used
for the establishment and benefit of common
schools in the territory.*
These are some of the more important of the
features of the senate bill; 'there are . many
others, and it would seem , as j if . the ; upper
house had exhausted suggestion and ingenu
ity to frame a bill which will leave polygamy
no possible loop-hole through which; it may
escape. It is! possible 'that its.very extent
and complexity may become tbc : agent of its
defeat as a law in case ■ it 5 should:; pass tbe
house and be confirmed in its present shape.
Just here at the point' where legal craft has
surpassed itself in the attempt to frame a law
which cannot be evaded, and which is to an
nihilate polygamy, it may be well to cite tlie
opinion of .an influential eastern religious
newspaper, the : Christian Union, and . which
discussed the question of polygamy before
the present bill was introduced. It proceeds
to show that polygamy is not, as many sup
pose, or assert, a mere pretence for the
gratification of lust,but that it is the out-crop
ping of religious convictions. ''Polygamy"
it says, "is thoroughly germane to the whole
system. It sends its roots down to the very
heartof Latter-Day doctrine; It Is the natural,
con sum ate flower growing out of
the rank spiritual and mental life below, and
never will be radically removed till that life
is reached and revolutionized." Arguing
from this point of view, it adds "No legal
penalties, no proscriptions, and punishments
will avail to put a stop to polygamy so rooted
in the ; superstitious fears' and ; hopes 'of
woman. No law prohibiting polygamy will
abolish it; no law depriving polygamists of
their citizenship will make headway against
it. There is but one remedy, two in form,
one in realty; the church and the school
house."
In the Utah bill, the country has the politi
cal view of the remedy, and in the assertions
of the Union, the religious view of the evil,
and the manner in which it should be dealt
with. There can be no question that the re
ligious estimate of the uselessness of pre
scriptive remedies is a correct one. Pro
scription, either as administered by Judge
Lynch or the law of states and of the
United States, has been tried for half a cen
tury, and has not attained success in any es
sential particular. Every movement against
polygamy has apparently strengthened it.
In the history of the attempts to suppress
what the possessors believed to be their re
ligious opinion, by coercive measures, the
Mormon church is unique in the extent to
which it has flourished. .
It is about time that the real nature of this
evil be understood, and that this tinkering
by politicians be stopped. If polygamy shall
ever be erased from the Mormon church, it
will be through a change of heart on the
part of those who now entertain it as a re
ligious belief. The sooner this fact is under
stood the better, and the sooner will politi
cians drop the matter and undertake to se
cure and retain office on some other issue.
All history bears unanimous testimony to
the fact that religious . convictions cannot
be legislated out of existence. Wild beasts,
the cross, the inquisition, the dungeon and
the stake have all had a hand in the effort,
and not one of them has a success to its
credit.
.. Returns to St. Paul.
We quote from the Dallas, Texas, Herald,
of June 15, the following item of interest to
St. Paul readers:
"To the Vice President and Directors of the Mer-
chants Exchange:
Gentlemen, —I have made arrangements to re
enter actively into a business that was founded
by me twelve years ago in St. Paul, Minnesota,
and, as an early removal would be necessary, I
am compelled to tender you my resignation as
president of the Merchants' exchange.
. Before retiring from the offlce which the mem
bers of the exchange have honored me with for
three successive terms, allow me to present to
you, and through you to the members of the
Merchants' exchange, a brief statement of the
affairs of the association, etc., etc., etc.
To say that I feel sorry to leave this city wonld
but faintly express my sentiments, and I shall
always remember the pleasant associates and the
many marks of confidence and regard shown for
me. Wishing you and the people of Dallas hap
piness and prosperity. I remain,
Your friend,
A. Oppekheim.
The resignation of President Oppcnheim was
much regretted, and the business men of Dallas
as a whole will regret to Jose so clever a gentle
man, and a man who has devoted so much of his
time and energy to the building np of the city.
He will be missed by all who know him, and es
pecially in commercial circles. Dallas never had
a more enterprising citizen and his departure
will he generally regretted.
Mr. Oppenheim will succeed bis cousin,
Mr. Jos. Oppenhelm, as the manager of the
wholesale millinery firm of J. Oppenheim
& Co., of this city, and will be a welcome
addition to our business community. Mr.
Jos. Oppenheim retires from the active man
agement of the concern and will, remove to
New York City about July 4, and as a matter
of consequence will resign as a member of
the board of education at the next meeting.

. The atmosphere last evening was condu
cive lo bad temper judging from the street
fights occuring at about the same time
through misunderstanding and refusal to
t.ke back insulting language. G. Smith and
Henry Pamley were the actors in one of these
pugilistic encounters on the corner of Sixth
and Cedar streets, and they were .danced
over to the city hall by Officer Sullivan where
they gave bail, and the other altercation took
place in front of the Windsor hotel, the
actors, Phillip Finnigan and Frank Kelly,
being run in by Officer Murphy, they also
putting up the chink for appearance before
Judge Burr this morning.
Runaway Mule Team.
As Gee. Bowers and a friend were driving
across the Wabashaw bridge, toward the
city, at about eight o'clock on Thursday
evening, their establishment was run into
by the mule team attached to a heavy wagon,
belonging to a Mr. Schmidt, residing some
four miles inland on the west side, and they
were both thrown out and their buggy
smashed. The mules were in the care of a
hired driver, who claims the mules were
scared on bridge square, and having no
brake on his wagon, he could not hold them.
Their owner will be called upon to pay a bill
of damages, however.
A Desperate Horse Thief.
Lemuel Tripp, who having served a, sen

near Zumbrota, and shot the city marshal in
the side as he was attempting to capture him.
A deputy sheriff and two citizens then start
ed in pursuit, but were fired at by the des
perado, and he succeeded in making good
his escape. The sheriff of Goodhue county
was in the city { yesterday making arrange

Releases Must Be Had to Do It.
The grading confirmation of Hudson
avenue, from Hoffman avenue to Earl street,
brought out a large crowd of property hold
ers on the former street before the - board of
public works last evening. It seems that a
large number of them have refused to give
releases to the city for sloping which neces
sitated quite an expense in the building of
retaining walls and which added 25 per cent to
their assessments. In order' to, pull down
these assessments 25 per cent, they have two
weeks to secure the releases for sloping the
entire avenue, which it is thought they will do.
Tapped an Artesian.
While the water works laborers were en
gaged in excavating for the main pipe near
Jarvis bridge, in Little Canada, a few days
since, they tapped a vein of water which has
continued pouring out of the earth, like an
artesian well ever since, the volume of the

erected earthworks and a stone fort 100x100
feet in dimensions, which after several charges
was captured and exploded. In the evening
a grand reception was tendered Gov. Sher

was largely attended and was one of the most
fashionable events of the week. The pro
gramme to-day willl consist of Gattling gun
practices, steeplechasing, dress parade and

New Yoke, June 20.—A morning local
paper prints a sensational story related by
Edward Croft Ryland, the husband of the no
torious check raiser, who was arrested in
Philadelphia on Wednesday and yesterday
committed to the Island for two and one-half
years. According to Ryland's story his wife
was intimate with a gentleman said to be
holding a high official position in Washing
ton, a member of one of the most distin
guished families of New York and one of
the aspirants for the nomination to the presi
dency. No names were given, and
it is not stated upon which ticket
the would be nominee's aspirations '■. were
fixed. "That man," says Ryland" was inti
mate with my wife before I married her,and
when I was laid up here in the St. Lukes' hos
pital he took advantage to come on here from
Washington and renew his relations with
her. ' Being thoroughly worked up by this
piece of business, I engaged a lawyer,got the
papers ready for a suit for damages and then
watched for that man's appearance in New
York. . It was not long before I heard
of his arrival at the Buckingham hotel.
Fifth avenue and Fifthieth . street.
I sent my lawyer up there, thinking
the distinguished gentleman might see fit to
come to a settlement without the exposures
necessary to a suit in court, but '. just as I
feared it would be my lawyer came back and
told me that for some reason I had no case,
and nothing could be done. Now I know
very well that ' ■ and the lawyer made the
settlement between themselves, and that the
lawyer pocketed the whole boodle. That
left me utterly powerless. . I had no money
to pay : another . lawyer or re
tainer in so ; important a case, and I made
up my mind that if I got a whole regiment
of lawyers' to go .up there they would be
bought up one after the other, for the family
to which the gentleman belongs has mil
lions." The one thing that gives color to
the story is, that the woman was employed in
one of the I departments in Washington at
one time as a clerk. 7

A NOBLE -OOCiy*IE_.T.
[Springfield (Mass.), Republican.]
Mr. Tilden's letter is a noble utterance. There
is a tone of dignity and composure and of patri
otic statesmanship about it which ought to have
a sobering and elevating influence upon his party,
and indeed upon the conntry. The nomination
and election of Presidents awaken such greed,
lust of office and low ambition that it is eminent
ly necessary and sagacious to remind the
conntry, as Mr. Tilden does, "that there is no
instrumentality in human society so potential in
its influence upon mankind for good or evil as
the governmental machinery for administering
justice and for making and executing laws."
Mr. Tilden's reference to his own career can
only be offensive to the most bitter partisan.
His characterization of "the occasion and the
power sometimes bestowed on a mere indivichial
to communicate an impulse for good" as "the
best gift of heaven" is expressive of the insight
of an old man who becomes more and more the
true seer as he emerges from the activities of
life upon the serene heights where he closes his
public career and looks forward and backward
with equal composure and with the clearest in
telligence to which he ever attains.

Stephen B. Elkins has been Blame's chum for
years. Their intimacy is as close as that of Blame
and Garfield was, and Elkins would have probably
been Garfield's Secretary of the Interior, as
Blame desired, but for his residence in the ter
ritory of New Mexico. Elkins is a banker in
New Mexico, a railroad builder in West Virginia,
a speculator in New York. He is one of the
owners, along with Blame, his father-in-law, ex-
Senator Davis, of West Virginia, *nd other con
spicuous men, of what is known as the Senato
rial railroad in West Virginia, along which are
scattered towns named after various senators.
Elkins made a fortune as the attorney of the
Star route men in Washington, and his career is
the envy of many congressmen from far away.
Elkins will probably be the Dorsey of the Biaino
campaign. There is nobody closer to Blame.
He is a giant in physique, as healthy as a young
Indian buck, and is temperate. When ha
whoops for Blame the noise can be heard.
Mr. McDaniel's Bonanza in Wild Honey,
[Atlanta Constitution.]
A week or two ago some on Mr. John Mc-
Daniel's place, in Chandler's district, near
Jackson, noticed some bees coming out of a,
large dead walnut tree that was in one of Mr.
McDaniel's field's. That night Mr. Mc-
Daniel went to the tree for the purpose of
taking the honey out, if there was any in it.
Cutting into the tree near the ground, they
soon found an abundance of honey and
every available vessel on the place was filled
and the supply seemed to be inexhaustible.
A stick was shoved up the hollow in the tree
and just as far as it reached there was honey.
So Mr. Mr. McDaniel decided to stop up the
hole and come back the next night for the
balance. The hole in the tree was stopped
up with old clothes add the party returned
home. The'next night when they found
nothing but a pile of ashes and a stream of
honey | extending about twenty feet from
where the tree was. The fire in the old rags
used in the first night's | raid had not been
put entirely out and by some means had ig
nited the tree and burnt up entirely and
wasted all the honey.
