The Troy Times, a truly good . Republican
organ emits this howl of despair:
The treacherous Independents have been an
element of weakness in Republicanism for a
number of years. Their insignificance is only to
be matched by their insolence. A great deal
more attention has been devoted to them than
they deserve. _.;;—■ ■■•■■-.
Honesty In politics is a sin in Republican
The small rumpus that Senator Pendleton,
In his capacity as an assistant RepuDlican,
undertook to stir up in the Ohio Democratic
Btate convention, shows that the party were
wise when they turned that gentleman out and
»ent such a sterling Democrat as Henry B.
Payne to the United States senate. Pendle
ton's pretensions are sound and fury only.
Ix the Presidential campaign of a dozen
years ago the New York Tribune bolted the
nomination of the grand old party, when the
■candidate was a better man than James G.
Blame. Now it Is heaping all the indecent
abuse of which it is capable upon men who
will not accept the unsavory nomination ' of
18S4. The paper founded by Horace Greeley
is now conducted solely in the interest of
the Wall street power, whose favorite for
Dresident is the Republican nominee.
. The Globe records with pleasure the evi
dence that its strictures on the wicked Dea
con Nettleton have not been in vain. The
Monday's issue of the Minneapolis Tribune
contains uo report of the games of base ball at
White Bear and Stillwater on Sunday. This
.is correct. If the base ball fiends are not re
ported they will not violate the Sabbath with
. their games, and we are glad to see that
Deacon Nettleton has so far regarded the in
tention of the ; Congregation Club to expel
him, as to omit the objectionable reports.
There is still some hope for the Deacon, as he
has evidently abandoned all attempt at pub
lishing a neawpaper. Lovers of base ball
should subscribe for the Globe. '
TnE present editors of the Cincinnati
Commercial Gazette were in the preliminary
. canvases ot 1876 and 1880, ' so : hostile to
Blame, that now he is the Republican. nom
inee they are forced to come out with a long
double-leaded card signed with the full name
.. of each stating that' they will 1- support' the
■ nominees of the Republican party, and
■Rlaine in particular, so that the Republican
public may not expect treachery." '••: The course
of these editors toward Blame . hereto'o -c has
been so violently hostile that it Is, deemed
as among the impossibilities, almost, ; that
any support can come to the man or the par
ty from that quarter.
■-; If Mr. Dorsey is no longer in a position to
make a President, he has vitality enough to
mar the schemes of some ambitious •to: be
made. Steve ■ Elklus, „■ Mr.: Elaine's chief
whooper-up, had the ambition to be chairman
of the Republican National committee. | Dor
sey exposed the fact that he was one of the
Star route crowd who was inscrutably shield
ed from the vexation of investigation. Mr.
Blame was forced to drop the project of put
ting his "whooper-up" at the head of the com
mittee, as his position and power were large
ly broken down by Dorsey'a revelations. With
the taint that is on him Elkins is not as im
portant as it was* anticipated he would be.
One by one the roses fall.
Notwithstanding the gibes of the New
York Tribune "■ and other grand old party
organs who are nourishing the slave-driver's
lash, the New York Independent abates not
one jot or tittle of its opposition to the Chi
gago Republican ticket' and platform, but
counsels another way to save the grand old
party from wreck. This is its plan:
"How to be a sound Republican is the great
conundrum since the Chicago convention, i We
reply in two parts. Repudiate the platform and
the two candidates who stand on it; but look
sharp after the state tickets and the congression
al nominations.. There is room enough here to
save all that a consistent and .patriotic Republi
can holds dear. Congress is the main thing, and
Republicans who cannot act for the presidential
ticket will find all the more reason for expending
their energies on the congressional districts. It
has not yet become necessary to bolt the party
in repudiating the presidential ticket. We have
had a Democratic house under a Republican
president, and, should the tremendous ■ blunder
at Chicago result in a Democratic president, a
Republican congress would leave the position
virtually unchanged. We propose to give no aid
to the election of Blame and Logan, and we ■ re
pudiate the platform they stand on. On the
honored and honorable historic platform of the
party no candidates have yet been put into nomi
nation for the presidency. Nominate your con
gressmen on that platform and elect them.
The campaign of fire is being begun by
threats from the Blame camp to punish all
the men who voted for Arthur at Chicago
who are in official life, and all officeholders
who did not support Blame for nomination.
General Bingham, member of Congress from
the First Pennsylvania district, is j a market]
man. In 1876 and in 18S0 Gen. Binghan*
supported Blame, but this year he saw fit to
give his support to Arthur. Blame boldly as
sumes that he will be elected, and declares
that Bingham shall not be re-elected to Con
gress, that he shall not be allowed to make
any speeches and that the Blame administra
tion will utterly ignore him. Col. Clayton
McMichael, now United States marshal for
the District of Columbia, wore Blame's collar
in 1876 and in 1880,-but in 1884 he sup
ported President Arthur. He has been noti
fied that the first act of Blame after his in
auguration will be to turn him out. Gener
al Beaver is another marked man. He is
threatened to the effect that he will not be
permitted to be a candidate for the United
States 3enate, as Blame has decided that he
will not allow any man to hold office, who
undertook to support any candidate except
the tattooed man. Blame has decided that
John Stewart must have the senatorial
place. These are only the earliest samples
of Blame's threats, his preliminary organiza
tion of his campaign of fire. The work is
progressing well. The Blame managers
are rushing things beautifully.
SEDUCTION OF POSTAGE.
The following official announcement of the
reduction in the postal rates upon transient
papers will be read with interest:
POSTOFFICE Department, j
First Assistant Posthastes General, v
Washington, D. C, June 13, 1884. )
The following act is now in force :
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Rep
resentatives of the ' United States of America
in Congress assembled. That the rate of post
age on newspapers and periodicals of the second
class, when sent by others than the publisher or
news agent, shall be one cent for each four
ounces or fractional part thereof, and shall De
fully prepaid by postage stamps affixed on said
Approved Jnne 3, 1884.
Hereafter postmasters will receive for mailing
newspaper and periodical publications of the
second class, when sent by other than the pub
lisher or news agent, at the rate of one cent for
each four ounces or fractional part thereof.
• . James H. Mark,
Acting First Assistant Postmaster General.
Under this law the postage on the Globe,
when it is, eight pages, is but owe cent per copy,
and when it is twelve or sixteen pages, two
cents. This is a reduction of one-half in
the rates, and is one which should have been
made lone ago. This tardy concession is,
however, very gladly received.
GiGAjrxzc PENSION GRAB.
The Republicans in congress evidently
fear that they are about to be thrust out, and
hence they are endeavoring to make way
with every dollar in the treasury before leav
ing. Not only this, but they are apparently
laboring to mortgage the future, so that for
the next half century there will be no sur
plus revenue. The pension job means any
amount from $200,008,000 to thrice that
amount. It is not conceivable that bo pro
digious and palpable a theft will be permit
ted to be perpetrated. Surely a Democratic
House will not ally itself with the pension
thieves and assist in, or connive at this rob
bery. No man sitting in the Presidential
chair, whether Democrat or Republican would
ever permit such ' a bill to become a law.
Even the veriest thief in our penitentiaries
would not have the audacity to aid in this
scheme of public plunder, for the reason
that he is unaccustomed to conceal his rob
beries under the guise of something virtuous
What will this great party do for a living
when the fateful Novembers shall toss them
from their fat places which they have so long
occupied, and force them to rely on their own
exertions for . a livelihood. Will the poor
houses be filled. Will the penitentiaries be
crowded. Will there be an increase in the
list of suicides? Will the forces and incomes
of the relief societies veto be doubled? What
will these fellows do who have for 60 lon a
time done nothing,save to put their hands in
to the public treasury when they wanted some
thing and help them selves. Alas, there is com
ing a period of destitution. Charitable Demo
crats will do well to keep their old clothes
and store up . their broken victuals.' j There
will be a demand for them after the next 4th
of March. '\; r ;^
WISDOM OB BLVXDEBI2TG. '■■'■
The Nation, a very able and discriminating
non-partisan journal published in New York
has the following significant paragraphs, cal
culated to awaken in every thoughtful mind
profitable : reflections. ; They indicate the
present drift of the public mind and politi
cal tendencies. . Its sly reference to "Jeffer
son Davis," indicates its belief in a repeti
tion of the chronic and fatal blundering of
the Democracy. It is possible that common
sense and enlightened judgement may pre
vail at Chicago, instead of blind personal
partisanship and headlong impulse. It is
well for the Democracy to understand that
though the possibility of success exists, the
battle is not yet won, and the fate of ' the
contest is yet to hinge on the action of the
convention at Chicago in July. . . ■'.■'.■■-
If wisdom, sound judgement, unselfish pa
triotism ; previal, and the motto "every thing
for the cause and its principles, but nothing
for men,"onl3E,sofar as a disinterested selec
tion of men to represent; principles is con- ,'
cerned, success -, is possible,: if not certain,
and is worth fighting for. In view of official,
Republican corruption, t the banner of re
form must be raised, such as Mr. Tilden
vigorously presents as needed, in his late
ietter,and with a united, honest effort, victo
ry may be made certain. • More 7 weighty re
sponsibility never rested upon a convention,
THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, THURSDAY MOKtflNGr, JU¥ET6, IW4.
than will attach to the action of the Demo
cratic convention to be held at Chicago, on
the eight of July. The paragraphs from
Xation above alluded to are these.
"The nomination at Chicago means the triumph
of agencies which have lon^ been at work for the
disintegration of tho Republican party. When
it came out of the war, in oontrol of an overflow
ing treasury and a vast patronage, nothing could
have saved it from the clutches ot the corrupt and
jobbing element which rapidly grew op within
its ranks as the old leaders died out, but the
stimulous of new ideas and new hopes or the
appearance on the scene of a purified opposition,
offering a new policy for the national acceptance.
Neither of these things has come to Its rescne.
The couutry has been on the whole too prosper
ous and happy since the peace to offer any soil
in which the seeds of a new enthusiasm conld be
sown, and the Democratic party has continued to
stand, with curious fidelity, for most of the
things in politics and society which the bone nnd
sinew of the Republican party hates and feare."
♦ * *
"Blame cannot be elected, we look on as cer
tain. Whether he enn be defeated without rain
ing the organization which is being prostituted
in the service of his selfish ambition, remains to
be seen. The extent of his defeat—that is, the
size of the majority which will remove him per
manently from the political arena—will depend
largely on action of the Democrats. They have
now an opportunity afforded them such as has
not presented itself for a quarter of a century.
That they will make good use of it,all experience
forbids us to hope. That they will offer deliverance
or relief to disgusted Republicans by nominating
such a man as Cleveland or Bnyard, when Tildes,
or Flower, or Jefferson Davis, or John Kelly is
within their reach, is something which it would
be very rash to predict. But as strange things
as this have come to pass. Whatever happens,
we believe a great political purification will be
the result, and we shall somehow have a party
which will represent the American people in its
noblest mood, and will adequately express the
national respect for the virtues by which govern
ments as well as homes are maintained and de
There is another panic in England over
the exposure of another infernal scheme,
anent the discoveries made in the baggage
of the man Patrick Joyce, who was arrested
Saturday on the arrival of the steamer Illin
ois. Cablegrams say that the tube found in
his baggage is "supposed" to be an infernal
machine of a novel and ingenious pattern.
The tube contained a liquid "supposed" to
be explosive. The entire machine resembled
a wooden leg. It was at first a "tube, "then it
resembled a wooden leg,and at the close of the
cablegram the country, is informed that no
body could tell by looking at it,that the thing
was anything but a log of wood. Either this
is a very queer, and complicated machine, or
else the English reporters are badly rattled.
It was a tube which resembled a wooden
leg and which nobody, by merely lookine at
it,conld distinguish from a log of wood. Fol
lowing the discovery of what is supposed to
be an infernal machine of a novel and in
genious pattern, and which is a tube and a
wooden leg and which nobody would suspect
to be other than a log of wood,there will un
doubtedly be a renewal to the English pan
ic overdynamaite conspirators and a demand
that the English government shall immedi
ately notify this country that the hatching of
treasonable plots in this country against
Great Britian must stop.
In truth, the thing has gone too far. It
was bad enough when Irish treason embarked
from this country with its satchel filled with
American bowie knives, dynamite catridges
and things of that sort, but it is infinitely
worse when treason wraps itself in such dis
guise that the ocultist of British detectives
cannot tell whether or not it is a peddler of
wooden legs or a merchant dealing in kind
ling wood or a smuggler of spirits. All they
know is that they believe dynamite is at the
bottom of the matter,and that the mysterious
piece of baggage is an infernal machine
of a novel and ingenious pattern.
It is a tube, it resembles a wooden leg, and
looks exactly like a log of wood.
The relations between England and this
country are becoming daily more complicat
ed, delicate and strained. Dispassionate
people will not wonder that England is right
in believing that matters cannot be pushed
much further without a surrendering of ami
cable relations. Mr. Stevens, in Paris, it is
reported, has said that the Irish nationalists
are about to inaugurate a balloon war against
England. A balloon service is to be started.
Irish patriots miles up in the air will sail up
over the towns of Great Britain and will
drop dynamite cartridges into the very cen
tres of the great cities. This naturally in
creases the feeling against this country, for
the reason that Mr. Stephens once resided in
the United States and this makes this coun
try responsible from what is threatened by
him from Paris, and when to this menace
there is added the arrival on the English
shores of Patrick Joyce all the way from Bel
laire, Ohio, with what is supposed to be an in
fernal machine of a novel and ingenious
pattern, and which is pronounced by good
judges to be a tube, a wooden leg, and a log
of wood there is every reason to conclude that
English toleration has reached its limit.
Heney C. Work, who has just died at Hart
ford, Conn., of heart disease, had considerable
fame as a song writer. He wrote "Kingdon
Coming," the great temperance, song "Come
Home, Father;" also "Marching Thro' Georgia,"
•'Rally Round the Flag," "Grandfather's Clock,"
"Slavery Days," "Wake, Nicodemns," "Babylon
is Fallen," and others which had very large sales.
His gift of song writing was a peculiar one. A
subject wonld suggest itself to his mind, and
oftentimes he would neither eat nor sleep until
the song was composed and set to music. He
always wrote his own accompaniment. Of all
excepting four of his three score or more of
songs both the words and music were original,
and the title pages, even, of his own design.
When tho rebellion broke out he was a poor
printer. He was born at Middletown, Conn., iv
1832, and his father, Alanson Work, was in 1841
sentenced under the fugitive slave law to twelve
years in the Mississippi penitentiary for assisting
slaves across the Mississippi river.
The Nineteenth Century gives a good deal of
space to a foolish discussion of a cranky theory
expressed by the word "telepathy," which is
alleged to mean feeling at a distance the impulse
of another mind through channels as jet nn
recognized. There are two forms which tcle
phatic phenomena are held to assume. One is
that of simple thought transference, or mind
reading, under the control of scientific experi
ment. In a mesmeric or phynotic condition, and,
indeed, without it. experiments are held to have
shown that impressions or ideas can easily be
transferred from one mind to another by an act
of will. The second form is that of a sudden,
unexpected impression passing from one mind to
another, as a sort of presentiment or apparition.
The writers treat not at all of apparitions of the
dead, but only of the living.
There was a streak of covetousness and preju
dice in the late Jere Black, that is illustrated by
the following anecdote: A lady once read him
the poem of Longfellow's, "The Day is Done,"
enlisting his admiration for it without tellinir him
the author's name, till he clamorously demanded
it. Then he said, "what a shame that a mere
Yankee should be able to produce such a verse as
that, while L. an honest Pennsylvanian, am com
pelled to express myself in plain prose?" Judge
Black's prejndice against New England and its
men and prominence rather more than bordered
upon the intolerant, and the more mature he be
came the more bitter he seemed to grow.
Ex-Surrogate Gideon J. Tctcker, of New
York has attended every Democratic Presidential
convention since 1840, except that of 1868, dur
ing which he was m Europe. He personally saw
Polk nominated at Baltimore in 1841, Cass' at
Baltimore in IS4B, Pierce at Baltimore in 1852,
Buchanan at Cincinnati in 1856, Breckinridge at
Richmond in 1860, McClellan at Chicago in 1804,
Greeley at Baltimore in 1872, Tilden at St. Louis
in 1876, and Hancock at Cincinnati in 1880. He
was a delegate to the conventions of 1856, ISCO
and 1864, and traveled across the continent from
Arizona to attend that of 1880.
A new tipple for the topera has been evolved
by a French chemist which is labeled M. Levat's
Melon brandy. The process of preparing this
new intoxicant is thus described: It. Levat took
the juice of six pounds of watermelon pulp, and
having added a certain quantity of free sulphuric
acid, he wanned the mixture, upon which the
sugar became transformed into a mixture of
glucose levulose. This product, which ferments
directly, yielded ten quarts of perfectly normal
alcohol. The beverage thua produced in said to
he very tempting.
The Paris Morning New* takes this Frenchy
viewof a recent event: "James Giliespie Blame
has been nominated as the Republican candidate
for the Presidency of the United States. We
may say within the limits of strict impartiality
that this result will please dome people and dis
appoint others." "No offense sir, I hope," said
William M. Evahts, now posing for a brief
period as a farmer at Windsor, Vt., has lately
added to his original investment by the purchase
of an adjoining one-hundred-acre farm. Itjis
supposed that he will devote the summer to
fencing in the entire tract with some of his
shorter oratorical sentences.
An enthusiastic female correspondent, writing
from London, photographs Millais, the painter,
as having most beautiful eyes and red lips, with
an extraordinary handsome wife and daughters
that are "cherry-ripe beauties." It is to be
hoped that the entire family will arrive by the
next steamer. t

Why the Moisture of the Atmosphere
Affects Comfort Under a High
"How is it that the heat affects us less to
day with the thermometor at 90 degrees than
it did yesterday with the mercury at S5 deg. ?
asked several visitors of P. F. Lyons, ob
server at the St. Paul signal office Tues
day. They may be replied to briefly that the
thermometer does not tell all the story as to
the "bearability" of heat. Other things
come in to ameliorate or to aggravate the
temperature—a breeze or the quantity of
moisture in the air—"Relative Humidity."
It is less comfortable on a hot, moist day,
than on a hotter dry one. On last Monday
the maximum temperature (at the signal of
fice) wa3 86}£ deg. and the relative humidity
(or moisture in the air) was 79 per cent.,
with an effect by no means pleasant. It was
a sultry "muggy" day, while on Tuesday the
thermometer rose to a much higher point
(90 degrees) but the humidity was
lower then—s2 per cent, or a fraction
over one-half of the capacity of the air at
that temperature leaving the heat much more
endurable. It was thought by a great many
people that Monday was as hot if not hotter
than Tuesday, though the thermometer
showed it to be nearly live degrees 'cooler.
The sensible difference in the two days as
respects the body is therefore
traceable to the greater degree of moisture
in the air during Monday over that of Tues
day. The term "relative humidity" or "hu
midity," it is true does not refer to the abso
lute quantity of moisture in the air. In the
language of meteorologists the term "hu
midity" denotes the degree of its approach
to saturation in the air, (or containing as
much as it can bold). It expresses the pro
portion which the amount of vapor actually
present in the air bears to that amount which
the air would hold if it was at the point of
saturation, ("dew point"), when dew, mist
or rain is about to fall from it. When the
humidity is recorded as 100, the thermometer
and the "dew point" are equal, the air is
completely saturated and rain is imminent,
but if the humidity is recorded at seventy
five it contains only three-fourths of the
amount requisite for saturation.
The warmer the air is the larger becomes
the invisible vapor it is capable of sustaining
and storing away in the interstices between
its atoms. At the freezing point it can only
hold one-hundredth part of its own weight of
invisible vapor: at the temperature of 59 de
grees the ODe-eightieth part of its weight; at
86 degress one-fortieth part, and for every
additional S3 degrees of temperature its capa
city is doubled. If fully saturated nt 33 de
grees of temperature it contains 2.37 grains
of aqueous vapor per cubic foot, and at 60
degrees 5.87 grains in each cubic foot and at
80 of the thermometer 10.SI grains. Tuesday
when the temperature was at*9o degrees ft
contained 7.61 to each cubic foot. Had the
moisture in the air remained unchanged since
Monday it would contain 10.20 grains per
cubic foot at the temperature of 90 degrees.
A fall in temperature from 80 degrees to 60
degrees throws down nearly five grains of
water for every cubic foot of air thus chilled.
A cubic foot of saturated air under the aver
age pressure and temperature of 90 degrees,
429 grains (troy) of which 14.8 grains are
pure aqueous vapor. With the temperature
verging on 100 degrees, as it occasionally
does in our "warm waves" the atmosphere
at saturation would contain as much as 19%
grains of water to the cubic foot, from which
some idea may be gathered of the enormous
rainfall possibilities of tropical clouds, which
heated up directly under the fierce sun, are
replete with evaporation from the great
oceans under the equator.
When the amount of vapor in the air is
considerable, as on Monday, it prevents the
body from throwing off its surplus beat. The
ability of the human frame to bear or throw
off the high cumulative temperature engen
dered in our midsummer weather, under
stagnant and moist air, depends upon sever
al circumstances. Evaporation from the
sidn and lungs is perhaps the most impor
tant means the body has of reducing its sur
plus heat, as Dr. Mas yon Hettenkcffer, the
eminent hygienist, has shown by the use of
an apparatus for testing the quantity of water
evaporated by men and animals. His exper
iments demonstrate that men at rest evapor

Coming 1 To Stay.
Mr. T. S. Coffin, of Red Lake Falls, is in
St. Paul hunting for a location where he can
live till he can make suitable arrangements
for building. Mr. Coffin came &!i_;inally
from Maine, and owns large interests at Red
lake, which consist of a large interest in the
Red Lake Falls and the milling interests
there. The company to which he belongs
has already a flour mill at the falls with a
capacity of 135 barrels of flour per day, and
owns 2,000,000 acres of virgin forest tribu
tary to the dam at the falls of Red Lake
river, and all of which if turned into lumber
must necessarily pass over tiie falls. All the
household goods of Mr. Coffin are on the way
from Maine to St. Paul where he will reside
and from which point he will manage all the
business of the concern at the lake.

The Graduating Exercises of the Class
of '84* Last Evening:.
Awarding of Prizes and Presentation of Di
plomas by President Sehiffmann.
The day of days in the eventful history of
every individual member of the class of'B4, St.
Paul High school, was brought to a successful
and brilliant close last night at the Grand Opera'
house. Its dawning had been looked forward
to with many a beating heart and throbbing pnlse
and the grand eclat with which it was enfolded
among the days that were will be cherished for
many a long day to come. Seventeen names
completed tho roll of honor. But it wai evident
that these seventeen were not alone in their
feverish expectance of the event for at an early
hour the Opera house began to fill, and every
available seat was taken and it is doubtful if the
grand auditorium ever presented a gayer and
more magnificent spectacle than that which met
the gaze of the class, teachers and the school board
when they took theirplaces on the stage. Ladies
were dressed for the occasion and in many in
stances they had been as tasteful, as extravagant
and as elaborate in their costumes as though
they were themselves graduating in place of
gracing the closing scene of the school life of
Bister, daughter, consin or friend. There had
been no effort made to decorate the house, the
pupil* rightly judging it folly to try to gild gold.
The stage, however, had some very charming
bouquets, or rather, garlands which were ex
qnlsite samples of artistic flower gronpirig, and
under and arch at the back of the stage was
spread upon a crimson ground in white char
acters the class motto, "Inter folia fructus," and
the date '84.
Precisely at S o'clock, still observing the
scholestic monition of punctuality, the class took
its position upon the left side of the stage in a
semicircle, and the members of the board of
education with the superintendent and Attorney
Murray finished the circle, the princial, Prof.
Gilbert, ocenpying the center. Behind this
circle was ranged the full tutorial staff of the
High school. Immediately upon the seating of
the class Seibert's orchestra played Bach's
The "Salutatory" was placed in the
hands of Miss Clara Elbel who was
chastely dressed in simple white, the only orna
ments being a cluster of exquisitely tinted blush
rose?. Miss Elbel's welcome to the friends of
the class had in it nothing pedantic, nothing la
bored, but it was a good, wholesome, sensible es
say in which the fair young graduate told in a
sijccinct manner what had been done in the four
years at the high school. Of the seventeen grad
uates she said four only had taken a classical
course. The others had Btudied those subjects
usually embraced in a modern course, and she
showed clearly nnd well how those studies had
been prosecuted. The address was delivered
in a clear, ringing voice , distinct and singularly
accurate in articulation, and the young lady was
self possessed, easy and graceful. At the close
she was rewarded with floral devices which formed
a pyramid around her, almost shutting her out
Paul A. Conn followed with an oration, "The
Almighty Dollar." Like the young lady preced
ing him, Mr. Conn seems to believe in good ring
ing, common sense terms and natural diction,
to convey common sense views. The yonng as
pirant to oratorical distinction has a good voice,
and he does not abnse it by over taxing
it but trusts to skillful management rather than
strained effort. This gentleman received a per
fect conservatory of floral offerings.
The High School Choral society, assisted by
the orchestra, next gave very pleasingly "The
Roll of the Drum," After which Ming Marion
Banker recited an essay, entitled "Nil Dispuran
dum de Gustibus," which contained a very pretty
introduction, followed by good sound reasoning
conched in choice language. Some parts of this
essay were truly eloquent—not with brazen notes
of high-scunding meaning, but eloquent with its
richness in good telling, Saxon words. And
the essay waa excellently delivered,
every word was uttered with a distinctness
and force that reached to the utmost bounds of
the vast auditorium. The ushers again had a
hard time of it to convey the floral offerings.
Mr. Louis R, Plencher seemed to grasp the
vexed question of what shall we do with it in
speaking of "Our Bedouins," and fearlessly told
hi« views in on outspoken, forcible manner.
After some selections from "Faust" by the
orchestra, Miss Mabel E. Baldwin delivered a
most excellent essay upon "Art in America."
This was one of the best essays of the evening,
and excellently delivered.
Miss Lou Fowble followed with "A
Question Under Discussion," in which
she endeavored to refute the arguments
of those opposed to higher education for the
masses. She took the objections seriatim: (1)
that the high school gave only a smattering; (2),
the branches of study are useless in after life;
(3), the poor taxed to educate the rich: (4), that
high school graduates are not fit for the labors
of life. Her sharp and caustic remarks were im
mensely applauded throughout.
Another chorus with orchestra, "0! hail us
ye free," gave place to
J. D. Miller, who in a well digested essay
proved "What fools we mortals be" for rushing
throngh life at a break neck speed. The essay
contained some very excellent epigrams, and,
like all the others, was distinctly and clearly
Miss Marcia H. Roche furnished another good
common sense essay on "How may a woman snp
port herself, " by pronouncing the "Valedictory"
which she did feelingly and well and couched in
excellent phraseology. Miss Roche has not a.
stirring voice, but she had not pronounced two
sentences before she had comprehended the de
mand the large house made upon her powers,and
by jndicidus modulations she satisfied it without
seeming effort. Her concluding sentence, "the
class is breaking up but let ns save the pieces,"
will be remembered by every member of the class
There were two marked featuresof the exercises
which cannot be too highly commeaded. The
essays each an<i all of them were models of good
English composition, and there was an absence
of all flourish and insane sawing of the air in
autometon fashion in the delivery. Another,
strong recommendation waa the clear enuncia
tion and distiuct articulation of every one of the
A committee consisting of J. W. Dixon, J. W.
Willis and W. P. Sanborn had been appointed
to award a prize offered by Geo. Benz, Esq., to
the graduate who should acquit himself
or herself the best. At the close
the committee reported that the
whole class was recommended for distinct "syl
labification,' ' that Mi3s Fowble and Miss Banker
were deserving of honorable mention, but in
their opinion J. D. Miller was entitled to the
Professor Gilbert then announced that the
presidents prize for the highest average
was awarded tf> Miss Roche whose steady
average through the whole course was 98 par
cent. He then introduced the class to the presi
dent in a brief address. He told them that when
people told them that their happiest days
were over not to believe them.
He did not share with the sentiment
that school days are the happiest in the lives of
pupils, and trust they would never wish them
selves back in the High school again, for they
should never take a step backward. He com
mended them to President Schiffman, of the
board of education, as a good class. "No better
had ever left the High school."
PRESE3TTISO THE DIPLOMAS.
President Settiffimi then addressed the gradu
ating class as follows:
Young ladies and gentlemen of the graduat
It now becomes my pleasing duty to confer up
on each of you the certificate which announces
to the world, that you have by your ability, en
ergy and careful attention to duty, as scholars,
mastered the course of study provided in the
common schools of this city. This circumstance
is at once a source of gratification to yourselves,
to your friends, and to the community in which
you live, to yourselves because you feel a just
sense of having overcome obstacles and won suc
cess. To your friends because their ardent in
terest in your welfare and confidence in your
competency has not been disappointed. To the
community, since it views with pride yonr suc
cessful completion of the tasks which the com
mon school course has imposed, a result which
will reward those who have contributed the
means by which your instruction has been fur
The hundreds of our citizens who have as
sembled to witness the exercises of this evening,
testify to the general interest in the cause of
popular education which is everywhere mani
fested by the American people.
The public school system has been founded
upou the theory that free government can only
be sustained by popular intelligence.
You will not, therefore, meet the just expec
tations of the people, nor . illustratate, rightly,
the benefits of our education system, unless you
display at sll times the conduct, principles and
aspirations of a good citizen.
Education, by the broader views of life which
it confers, and especially by the moral lessons
which all history and all literature convey, has a
natural tendency to inculcate good morals. Let
it be your aim in life to prove that educatioa has
wrought in you, not only an intellectual, but a
As children of the common school system it
will be your duty ever to be ardent defenders of
that system; that its btessings may be repudi
ated for the benefit of all future generations. Let
your influence in any community wherein you
make your home, Stand for the liberal^
support and constant Improvement
of the public school. Let this support be
given to efforts for the wide distribution of the
solid advantages of a plain education, rather than
to the plan of conferring an ornamental education
npon a few at large public expense. The increas
ing millions of children in this country, the for
eign immigration annually arriving, the many in
fluences at work to corrupt public morals, will
make the task of popular education one of ever
increasing difficulty. To meet and wisely S'lr
mount this difficulty, protect the common school
system from perversion and defend it against at
tacks, will be among the important tasks of
citizenship which you will be called upon to un
As you leave the guardianship of the school
this evening to take upon yourselves, in some
degree, at least, the duties of the citizen, you
must remember that the active iife of this world
is a most trying experience. You will 2nd your
best endeavors often unsuccessful, your best in
tentions often misunderstood, Never be dis
couraged. What Edward Everett Hale describes
in his famous lecture as "clear grit" has ever
been a distinguishing characteristics of Ameri
cans. Do not, in this respect, fail to be true to
the national strandard of courage, energy and
I sincerely believe that you have, in your stu
dent life, formed too strong an attachment for
learning to render in any sense necessary, ou my
part, an exhortation to continue the ardent pnr
suit of science, literature and the arts. Although
to your minds the stock of wisdom you have ac
quired may seem vast and extensive, yet the
longer you live the more truth yon will perceive
in the strange, though solemnly uttered state
ment of the attic sage, 'that he knew nothing.'
Never let business cares, or Other cares, cause
yon to forget your books! Let your library
keep pace in its increase with your bank ac
count ! Let it never be said that Minerva has
found you unfaithful worshipers at her shrine !
In parting with you at this time, we desire to
present, with cordial earnestness, our congratu
lations upon your success in the past, our hopes
for your success in the future.
The city of Saint Paul has placed in your hands
the archimedian lever which moves the world.
You live in an age of progress, an age of vast op
portunities. We dismiss you in the, belief that
you will reflect credit on the institution which
now confers upon you its diploma.
Diploma? were then presented to

Who constitute the graduating class of '84.
This brought to a close one of the most inter
esting and successful graduating class exercises
ever given in this city, and as it is only a year
since the new High school building has been
opened, the public is early beginning to find "be
tween the leaves the fruit,"

The Omaha Line to Make a Trial oi
the Fall Tariff Rate to Earn
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Chicago, June 25.—At to-day's meeting of the
general managers of the New York Traffic asso
ciation, one of the most annoying entanglements
which has threatened the well being of railroad
circles for many a day was satisfactorily straight
ened out. Repeated outlines of the situation
have recently appeared in the Globe. Instead
of improving the condition of things, it has been
rapidly growing more aggravated and the great
est complications were feared. The
contagious spread of the territory adjacent
to the Northwestern pool, and rates wer«.
becoming serionsly demoralized. The managers
Tuesday night were very far from an understand
ing, and when they met yesterday the outlook
was dismal enough. A spirit of concession,
however, took possession of the conferees, and
a settlement was the work of but a short time.
President Marvin Hughitt, of the Omaha
when it was clear that his line would hot be
granted a differential of 5c a barrel on flour
from Minneapolis to the seaboard
via Lake Superior, . submitted a proposition
that sounded the key note to a speedy settle
ment. He proposed that the Omaha line make
a trial of the fnil tariff rate, with the understan
ing that the association would protect it in Its
efforts to earn its alloted percentage of 10 per
cent. If his line, after a thorough trial, could
not do so, the association ohonld agree to allow
it a sufficiently large differential to enable it to
carry its quota of tunnage. The association
is satisfied that the Omaha should have
during navigation lo per cent, of the
pooled traffic, and is willing to grant the line alj
reasonable facilities for carrying that much.
Sir, Ilughitt's proposition therefore met with
unanimous favor, and the problem was solved.
The adjustment of the trouble must have a salu
tory influence upon adjacent troubles. It is now
confidently expected that rates to Dcs Moines
will be speedily restored and the Central lowa
Traffic association reorganized.
It was learned upon reliable authority to day
that R. S. Hayes, vice president; H. M, Hoxie,
second vice president, and Geo. Olds, general
traffic manager, of the Wabash will within a few
days render their sanction to take effect at the
earliest convenient date. They will, of course,
retain their connection with the Missouri Pacific,
with which they have for years been most inti
mately iden'ified. This action was not wholly
unexpected. When the Missouri Pacific assumed
the operation of the Wabash it was done at
the demand of Jay Gould whose
instructions were complied with by Messrs.
Haye3 and Hoxie under protest. They never
wanted to have anything to do with the Wabash
property, and now that the road is in a receiver's
hands they have been pressing Mr. Gould to al
low them to wash their hands of any connection
with it. It is said in good authority Col. Hoxie's
visit to New York last week was for the purpose
of seenring Mr. Gonld's permission to desert the
BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS.
Mississippi Street Improvements-
Oakland Avenue Grading:—Fifth
Street Paving 1.
At an adjourned meeting of the board last
evening all the members were present but
Mr. Terry, and Mr. Farrington presiding,
the following business was transacted:
The clerk was directed to give confirma
tion notice on the assessment for the widen
ing, opening and straightening of Mississip
pi street from Grove to Asa street.
The specifications for grading Oakdale
avenue from State street to south city limit*
were examined and approved, and the clerk
ordered to advertise for bids.
The city attorney reported npon the matter
of permitting J. Forrestal to put in granite
curbing on the line of the Fifth street paving
ing place of blue stone as contemplated in
his award, that he did not deem it safe to
grant the permission,and the council had in
dicated its preference for granite the best
course for the board would be to reconsider
the vote by which the award was made, re
ject all bids and readvertise. The report was
accepted and the clerk authorized to read
vertise for bids.
Interesting 1 Supreme Court Decision.
An interesting decision was given by
Judge Mitchell of the supreme court yester
day, in the matter of the Minneapolis & St.
Louis railway, appellant, vs. Ralph L. Rus
sell, respondent. Russell recovered dam
ages in the lower court for injuries sustained
while coupling a baggage car with a Miller
coupling to the tender of an engine with the
ordinary goose-neck coupling, the cars being
on a curve and the couplings slipping past
each other and crushing him. The higher'
court affirms the decision of the lower
court on the ground that a servant of a rail
way company does not of necessity, because
he works for it, assume risks of handling un
safe machinery of which such couplings be
ing used together for connecting cars were
such. Then, again, it is not enough for
such servant to know that such implements
are unsafe and defective to hold the com
pany clear for damages for his injuries
in handling the same. In this case
the plaintiff had been using this unsafe ma
chinery on this train as abrakeman for some
time and had never seen the two couplings
slip past each other before. There was no
negligence on his part whatever, and it is
not pretended that he was doing the jo*b un
skilfully. It was the master's duty to supply
safe machinery, to inform the servant of any
dangers incident to his employment, and it
was not the duty of a brakeman to be a ma
chinist also, to the extent that he should be
fully cognizant of the danger of the use of
these two couplers, ■which prudent railway
companies do not permit to be used to
Mankato Bntter Gilt Edged.
Secretary Young, of the state board of im
migration, received documents from Manka
to yesterday in regard to the dairy business
in that section of the state, among which was
a marked copy of the American Dairyman,
published in New York city, containing .an
article on the western dairy business. It
states that the butter making tributary to
Mankato averages from 25,000 to 30,000
pounds per week, and is of
excellent quality, selling fully as
readily as Elgin, 111., butter in the New York
market and giving equal satsfaction, when
it is remembered that the Elgin factory has
been one of the most popular dairy factories
in the United States for the last three or four
years, and that at Mankato is of recent es
tablishment, in will be understood that this
notice is quite complimentary and that the
Mankato article must be fully as good aa the
A Dead Infant in A Trunk.
An English family living near Rice steet
hired a girl, who said she came from Minne
apolis, to do house work, on Tuesday. She
not getting up yesterday morning, gave no
answer on being called at her door as late as
9 o'clock, and the suspicions of the family
were so excited at 11 o'clock that the man
of the house burst open the door. lie found
the girl absent from the room. Soon after
the girl put in an appearance but gave no
satisfactory account for her absence. Sub
sequent examination revealed the body of a
dead infant in the girl's trunk. Coronei
Quinn was summoned, but the most vigilant
search for that gentleman as late as one
o'clock this moruing to secure the names of
the parties and the result of his inquiriei
failed to discover his whereabouts.
