Yesterday (to-day) afternoon's weather re
ports indicate that the hot wave was increasing
in intensity throughout the northwest, but little
change took place in the barometer except at
stations in the British possessions to the north
west of us. Medicine Hat reported a barometer
reading of about .20 of an inch less than other
stations. There was evidently a barometric de
pression of some energy at and around that sta
tion, as a "gale" ranging from 30 to 20 miles an
hour from NE prevailed there during the greater
portion of the day. Although the temperatbre
for St. Paul promises to be higher to-day than it
was yesterday, still the indications are that it
will not be so oppressive, as the prospects for a
dryer atmosphere are better.

President Arthur attended the Princeton

Dr. McCosh ordered him made an L. L. D.

Arthur . has . really . achieved something, by
means of his nicely fitting pants.
Governor Robinson of Massachusetts has
had the j good • souse to tell Harvard college
that . he did not want their flap-doodle degree
of L. L. .D. The rush which the colleges
make to decorate men in office with such de
grees as . their charters permit is a silliness
which makes every man of real education
'and learning ashamed to possess the cheap
and miscellaneous thing. If all men like the
Massachusetts Governor would revolt when
a college pokes this blue-ribbon nothing out to
them, in the course of time the profound col
lege faculties might discover what laughing
stocks' they are.
Rioht action is not always a losing game.
It was predicted that the New York . Times.
by bolting the nomination of James G.
Blame, would be ruined. " On' the contrary
the Times asserts that it is stronger and more
prosperous than ever. It is receiving im
mense accessions to its subscription list and
is otherwise commended, showing how safe
it is in a just cause to have the manly cour
age of one's convictions. The Times, the
leading and most able Republican journal in
the nation, will exert a powerful, if not fatal
influence in turning away Republican sup
port from an unworthy ticket.
The Republican - senators at Washington
are playing a deep game of demagougism to
influence the pending Presidential election.
They have just held a caucus. to. devise, os
tensibly, plans to extend the benefits of the
pensions arrears bill. It is said the legisla
tion proposed and . advocated . by the caucus
will amount t05275,000,000, enough to bank
rupt the government, but these shabby poli
ticians must 'do something in their anxiety
and alarm to catch the soldier vote to carry
the election. •■ Of course they never expect
to enact such a bill, and in their corrupt
insincerity they, want to seem willing to do
it, just for campaign effect.
The Chicago Tribune, now one of the most
ardent supporters of Mr. Blame, said of him
in 1876: -':-^-::: -
It must be remembered that Mr. Blame did
not permit Mulligan to present these letters with
a connected story of the various transactions to
which they refer, but that he himself presented
them in such order as he pleased and with his
own construction. It must also be remembered
that only a part of the letters have been published
in full. Yet, with all this advantage to Mr.
Blame, the deductions we have stated seem to be
inevitable. In how far they are discreditable to
Mr. Blame can only be determined by a more sat
isfactory explanation than has yet been made :
but in the meantime it seems to be admitted that
as Speaker of the House,he influenced legislation
favorable to enterprises in .- which he had a per
sonal interest, either actual or prospective.
Has anything changed^ in regard to these
inculpations since 1876, except the Tribune?
The La Crosse Republican-Leader is not
smothering the Republican party of Minne
sota with 'compliments. For a truly good
Republican organ it is more severe, and
makes a more savage arraignment of the
remnant of the g. o. p. in this state than any
Democratic journal takes the trouble to. The
La Crosse paper says: -
"Few states have been plundered by so com
pact and powerful an organization of corrupt
men. Railroad rings, elevator rings and timber
thieving rings were all composed and combined
in the one political ring formed of • a few men
grown wealthy by monopoly influences and lo
cated at St. Paul, Minneapolis and Stillwater.
The press has been subsidized to further the
ends of the schemers and the power of those who
had so long fed upon the fruit of monopoly and
corruption seemed well nigh impregnable."
"Can these things be and not excite our
special wonder ,
The resolutions adopted at the meeting of
the St. Paul Jobbers' ' Union held Monday
afternoon, are given upon another page of
this morning's issue and quite appropriately
supplement the comprehensive reports of the
late excursion, given by the Globe. The
merchants of' St. Paul may well congratulate
themselves upon the great success of their
expedition, and thanks to newspaper enter
prise the scope of tbe project is not limited
to the chain oLjtowns where calls were made,
but through the service of printer's ink it
has a fame national in its character. ( The
resolutions but reiterate the verdict' of the
Globe that nothing has ever transpired in
the business life and history jof St. Paul so
certain to redound to the prosperity of the
commercial metropolis of the northwest and
the limitless resources of the vast area of
country tributary to it, as the excursion of
the St. Paul Jobbers' Union.
Gen. Butler displays much versitility in
his political action. He accepts every nom
ination ! for the Presidency with thanks, and
no doubt would very cheerfully accept the
Chicago convention : next July, if
offered to :-: him— prize , which
he is quite likely seekingO after. j.The
last nomination ' tendered him ; is by the
Greenback party. As a matter of course, he
accepted the nomination. '. In his letter of
acceptance he avers that "the greenback sys
tem of finance saved the life of the Nation
and broke" the chains which enslaved § four
millions of people." Having indulged in this
limited . effusion of lofty, greenback
panygeric, he proceeds toDenunciate certain
views which will meet with general Demo
-cratic assent. He says: - .
"The interests of labor, the preservation of the
lands of the people for the benefit of the people,
the control of agencies . created by the govern
ment to be used for. the good of the people, to
regulate and control a system of inter-state com
merce, ; which shall control '■. and cheapen: the
transportation of persons, freight'- and intelli
gence, and to protect all in their just rights, and
confine all to their true duties, to the end that
there may be in this -country, an equality of
rights and an equality of burdens, of privileges,
and of powers to all persons under the law, has
been the political rule of my life."
It is doctrines like these that give him any
title to standing as a Democrat. • . -> >

The files of the Republican papers are rich
mines of comment regarding regarding. the can
didates oh the Jingo Republican ticket. "Dirty
work Logan" was once the favorite pet name the
New York Tribune applied to the distinguished
candidate for ' Vice-President the Jlngos are

"Telepheraoe" is a new word coined by Prof.

A communication was read from the chief
stating that he had suspended Capt. F. Bur
nand and E. Rettell, driver, for fighting, and
giving an account of the - fracas.: He . sub
mitted the report without recommendation,
simply stating both men are good firemen.
The two men were called in to explain.'
Captain Burnand was the first called but had
very little to say more than it ' all originated
from an old grudge the driver had against
him. Rettell gave a graphic and concise ' ac
count of the whole disgraceful scene even
to the crying of the captain when he had had
enough. The chief, when called on, . cor
robated the driver and from his statement it
would appear that the fault was greatly on
the side of the captain who had used profane
and disgusting language to the driver.
Commissioner Warren said such disgrace
ful proceedings called forth a great deal of
comment. There was some ; such thing at
the depot fire. -". ">
The chief explained that the fighting at
the depot fire was by outsiders and he had
them arrested by Capt. Walsh. '..-.
The chief being asked for his opinion said:
There is only one way to successfully run a
company and that is to have implicit obedi
ence and he could only recommend that both
men he discharged.. ■-..:;r,''Y.Y
The president thought the recommenation
a good one. .The captain should use respect
ful and decent language to the men and the
men .should give prompt obedience. - He
was for discharging the men.
: Commissioner Pendergast moved that the
men be discharged as recommended by the
chief immediately. Carried. '
The chief reported, recommending that
little Harry (his buggy bore)and three others
Jumbo and the black team of hook and lad
der be condemned.
Harry was Chief Strong's horse, is twenty
two Years old and kept in the department
'.'out of sympathy" the president said.
- The chief in reply to Commissioner Pren
dergast stated that he has another horse, but
he got hurt in the stable and is not fit for
use ot present, his back being sprained and
is lame. - ~K-;
The president recommenced the sales also
of the roans. Y~Y'.Y
Commissioner Prendergast . asked if the
horses could not be used—the roans especial
ly for the duty they now do. So : much had
been said about horses that he was in favor
going slow. He thought Harry would do
good work where he is now.
- The president stated that he cared nothing
about what was said: he believed in getting
good stock. The horses in question would
be good horses for some purposes, but not
for the arduous work of the fire department.
It was finally resolved that the four horses
be condemned as totally unfit for the fire de
partment service, and that the same be re
placed by the purchase of new horses, and
that the president report to the council and
request instructions as to the disposition of
said horses.: Carried. ■>■'.

--■ CHICAGO COMMANDERY.
Entertained by The "Damascus Com
mandery— Royal Route Trip.
' Last evening the Damascus Commandery
entertained the Chicago Commandery at
Masonic hall. The evening was rather warm
for. such an occasion, but the members; of
the. order and their guests managed after all
to make a very • pleasant affair of it, and
everything -. passed off as' pleasantly as
anyone ' ' could' ■ have ' ;' asked. It
was • wholly - informal, and ' was
not marred with speech making. The mem
mbers of Damascus commandery received
the visitors, and , general introductions.' fol
lowed, and, after indulging in social inter
course for an hour or \ so, a very delicious
banquet was served in the banquet hall, ad
joining the main hall, consisting of ' solids,
coffee, ice . cream " and strawberries,
and a modest supply ; of ;-; the
customary fluids - that cheer the spirits.
About 10 o'clock the Elgin band, which ac
companied the Chicago commandery, en
tered the hall and .forming a circle in the
center of the room gave i several very pleas
ing selections.' The festivities were kepi up
till about 11 o'clock, when the entertainers
and their guests departed, the Chicago com
mandery marching to the Merchants, headed
by their band. It was a very pleasant occa
sion. _ _
Chicago to St. Paul.
The members of the Chicago Commandary
No. 19 Knights Templar,: speak many - good
words for the "Royal Route" by which they
came from Chicago to St. Paul. There were
sixty-six knights, fifteen' ladies, and the El
gin band. They made a delightful day run
between the two cities, leaving at 9:05 a. m.
and. arriving at 9:40 p. m. There were
twenty stops made, twelve being between
Chicage and Elroy, the. principal being at
Harvard, Beloit, Madison, '■ Devils " lake and
Elroy, these five consuming forty-five min
utes. Between Elroy and St. Paul there
were eight stops made, the longest being at
Altoona, Eau Claire and Lake Elmo,
each five . minutes. The stops
took one hour and twenty-nine minutes,thus
leaving the running time eleven | hours and
six minutes. This time Is fast, but has before
been equalled on the Royal Route or two or
three other occassions. _ The run from | Eau
Claire to St. Paul was made in two hours and
thirty minutes. ....
As far as possible the train was officered by
Sir Knights and at Elroy it passed into the
charge of Sir Knight J. D. . Condlt, ;of the
Chicago, St. Paul & Omaha railway, who, of
course, did everything in style. 'The elegant
dining car "Challenge," which they occupied
is one of two splendid new cars just built,
its companion being - the car which
accompanied the St." Paul Jobber's on their
recent excursion. This traveling hotel was
very appropriately in | charge • of :, Sir Knight
Dan Healey, one of the ■ most . efficient and
attentive landlords in the employ of the com
pany. • /»Y'Y';Y--
The Elgin band is mostly composed of em
ployes of the | Elgin Watch company, ; and
many of them manufactured their | own' in

Closing Out All Deals—Wild Chicago
Chicago, ' June 23.— secretary of tho
board of trade announced on 'change this-'
morning' that the firm of C. J. Kershaw Si
Co. had evened up all their trades and would
settle all differences at their offie. The firm
has done a very heavy commission and export
business,andare reported to be on the "long
side of the market, principally in wheat and)
corn. The firm began paying all difference*
in full, and claim they will be . able to meef
all demands. The house is a Milwaukee ona
and has constituted a factor in what has been
known as ' "The Milwaukee Crowd," in
various heavy transactions in the past on the
Chicago and Milwaukee board of trade. Tha
effect of the announcement and the decline,
of stocks caused the price of wheat to decliuo
nearly one cent.
Kershaw . denies that .he has failed. He
claims that his trades were in unsatisfactory
shape and he desired to close them. He say a
he will be able to meet all demands prompt
ly. The markets are badly depressed by the
effect of the Kershaw announcement, and
rumors of more trouble in New York. ■'.'-.

Washington, June 23.—There was a well
attended caucus of Republican senators at
the capitol this evening to consider the order
of business for the remainder of the ses
sion. The question of final adjournment
was only briefly • alluded to, but the discus
sion of other matters was proceeded upon
with the understanding that the end of tha
session would be reached not later than tha
sth of July. An order of business was de
cided . upon, substantiallyj as follows: The
Mexican pension bill is to be disposed of at
three o'clock to-morrow. Thereafter tha
annual appropriation bills, including tha
river and harbor bill are to have precedence
as . fast as. they are ready. When
no appropriation bills are ready
the measures .on the calendar are
to be taken up and disposed of in the fol
lowing order: Interstate .commerce bill,
land grant forfeiture bills, postal telegraph
bils,, bill relating to the route of railroad lines
into Washington city, anti-Chinese bill, con
tract labor bill, and a bill for the admission
of Dakota. It is not to be expected that all
these measures will be reached, since the
final adjournment will not be delayed for
them after appropriation bills are disposed of.
The Feverish Oil Market-
Pittsfurg. June 23.— oil market has
not yet recovered from the terrible shaking
up received Friday and Saturday. The feel
ing to-day was a trifle better, but the under
tons wa a weak and panicky. The refusal of
banks to loan on certificates have had a de
moralizing^ effect oh the business and fright
ened many buyers from investing. -. There
were no failures on 'change to-day and ru
mors of the financial embarrassment of a
prominent operator proved groundless. The -
market opened with sales at 5Gc and ad
vanced to 57c, but suddenly broke on re
ports of a grain failure at Chicago, coupled
with the weak stock market and bearish field
news.. Amid great excitement oil declined
to 53)£c, when the trade took courage and
the market rallied to 55c at Ip. m. During
the decline several large blocks ; were offered
with no takers.
The Cuban Debt. .■
Madrid, June 22.—1n congress yesterday
the West Indian members advocated the sup
pression of export duties, a reduction of im
port duties, a reduction of expenses . from
$34,000,000 to $24,000,000, and an early:
conclusion of a treaty of commerce with
America as the only means of extricating
Cuba from the economical depression now
existing. The government declared it was
impossible for Spain to assume the
Cuban debt and . annual deficit,
and it was impossible to satisfy the Cuban
aspirations for better commercial relations
with America, which would damage the pe
ninsula trade with the colonies. A slight re
form was promised to facilitate trade between
China and Cuba. The depression it was de
clared had been aggravated by the too rapid
abolition of slavery. The reply of the gov
ernment has caused much discontent among'
the members. .
The General Deficiency Bill.
, Washington, June 23.— attorney general^
sent to the senate to-day a communication is *
which he calls attention to the failure of; the
house to provide in the general deficiency bill foi
the deficiency under the various bureaus of tha
department of justice. Among these are a - defi
ciency of $90,000 for fees, etc., in the marshal's
office, for which the j house only appropriated
$50,000, and a deficiency of $12,000 for the final
payment of special attorneys employed in prose
cuting Guiteau. Referring to the amount re
quired for the final payment of the attorneys in
the Guiteau case, the attorney general says: "It
appears to me the failure to provide for their
payment for services in that case is a national
reproach." •He also calls attention to the pro
viso in the house bill limiting the use of money
therein appropriated to the payment of district
attorneys and their regular assistants, and ex
cluding payment to special counsel.
