It appears that the good Deacon Nettleton

Me Henderson who as chairman of the Re
publican national convention went to Maine
to report the proceedings to Mr. Blame ex
presses his disappointment about the Blame
feeling in the East. He found no enthusiasm,
and nothing like the heartiness tnat appears
to exist westward. The fact is "down East"
the public knows the man, and that know
lege is an absolute barrier to enthusiasm. It
operates like a mill-stone.
Mr. Wm. C. Wiiitsey, formerly corpora

The question is being discussed whether
or not Minister Lowell should be pensioned.
He is clearly disabled, and the causes of his
disability have arisen during his period in
the government service. Under such cir
cumstances he seems to he wholly eligible.
The Government ha 6no right to require a
man to occupy a position where his duties
consist of eating fine dinnore, and drinking
nice wines, and when he gets the gout, turn
him adrift. The pension should be liberal.
The Prohibitionists continually run against
snags. At Saline, Kansas, six saloon keep
ers were convicted under the new prohibi
tion constitutional amendment, and sen
tenced to fine and imprisonment. An appeal
was taken to the Governor of the state, and
the showing made that the Prosecuting At
torney packed the juries that convicted the
men. Upon this basis the Chief Magistrate
found it to be his duty to pardon the con
victed men, as dishonest prosecution is a
persecution not contemplated by the law.

The Boston papers are yearning to be in
formed "who Jones is, anyhowl" and some
of the Pennsylvania papers seem Inclined to
furnish the information. For instance, the
Philadelphia Times expresses the opinion
that, "Benjamin F. Jones will make & highly
respectable and solid chairman of the Repub
lican national committee, with great ability
in drawing and commanding checks for the
committee's exchequer; and Elkins, New
and Chaffee will make a jingo executive
committee to put the money where it will do
the most good and run the campaign on
general high jinks methods." The Harris
burg Patriot takes the same view, as it says
"there is one obvious advantage in giving
the chairmanship of the Republican national
committee to Mr. B. F. Jones, of Pittsburg.
Elklne, Chaffee and New can hold a carnival
of corruption about him and he'd never find
it out." ________
A V A V VEAL FOR HARMONY.
The Fourth district Republican committee
is to meet at Minneapolis to-morrow to take
into consideration what shall be done in ref
erence to Mr. Barker's nomination of J. B.
Gilfillan for congress. Mr. Gilfillan does not
represent the Republican party; he does not
represent any principle. He was not nomi
nated by the Republican party and the Re
publican party is not bound to support him.
He represents the distinguished Barker and
Barker only, by whom he was nominated.
Under such circumstances it is fitting that
the District committee, together with the
wisest and best men of the party, should as
semble and counsel together. The Globe
trusts that wisdom and moderation will char
acterize the meeting to-morrow. It will re
quire wise action to prevent disaster at the
polls. Mr. Fletcher could lead the party to
victory in November, while Mr. Gilfillan will
lead it to certain defeat.
U nder such circumstances, if Mr.Gilfillan is
the patriotic and loyal Republican, the Globe
estimates him to be, he will place the crown
which Barker gave him in the hands of the
Republican committee and request them
cither to nominate Mr. Fletcher themselves
or call a new convention with that object in
view. Mr. Barker could nominate
but he cannot elect Mr. Gilfillan. Disfran
chised Washington county, like Banquos'
ghost, will not down, and Mr. GHtillan owes
|it to his party, as a patriotic duty, to step aside
. from the illegal and unenviable position in
i which Mr. Barker has placed him, and loin
■ with the Globe and the Minneapolis Tribune
! and Minneapolis Journal in giving Mr.
Fletcher the candidacy which he fairly and
The Globe appeals to Mr. Gilfillan in the
interest of harmony to make this sacrifice to
save the party. The claims of the Republi
can party upon Mr. Gilfillan are surely greater
than those of of Mr. Barker, and the Globe
implores him to take this manly and patriotic
action before it is too late. He is young.
oily and vigorous, and if both he and Barker
live, as they doubtless will, other opportu
nities will arise to do them honor.
The Pitmen- Prat and Dispatch are actuated
solely by their small local prejudices in urg
ing Mr. GLliiilan to run, simply because he
was the means of defeating, for the time, the
man who was opposed to their local candi- !
date. The Globe rises above such narrow
| local prejudices and cannot, therefore, ap
THE ST. PAUL DAILY G^OISE, TUESDAY MORNING, JULY T,"..-Ig&4_
prove the illegal candidacy of Mr. Gllfillau.
It is not in the interest of Mr. Fletcher that
the Globe approves the meeting of
this committee but in the interest of
harmony and justice. The Fourth district is
Republican if the party can be united. Mr.
Gilfillan can, probably, unite Mr. Barker,
but he cannot unite the party. By the love
he bears the organization which has so fre
quently honored him, he should step aside
and permit Major Camp to declare Mr.
Fletcher the only and rightful nominee of
the Republican convention of the Fourth
district. That would be manly and just and
would avert the disaster, which every good
Republican can not but view with horror,
of a Democrat representing this district in
It is rare that the Globe feels 60 deeply
and keenly the importance of preserving
the integrity of the Republican party, but on
this occasion personal preferences should be
subordinated to the public and party welfare,
and on our bended knees, or even all fours,
(so to speak) the Globe joins the Tribune
and Journal in urging Mr. Gilfillan to save
the party by gracefully placing the Barker
crown in Major Camp's historic hat at the
committee meeting to-morrow. Do it and —
Blessings be thine, loyal Gil, ever more.

departments, especially the Treasury and In

sons in the departments who were disposed
to kick, bolt or be lukewarm, and he was told
that there did not seem to be any very great
enthusiasm. When Mr. Blame asked for the
names of the more prominent officers in the
departments who were disaffected he was un
able to get them from the chiefs of bureaus.
However, by dilligent inquiry he was able to
make quite a list. Those men will either
have to change their tactics and simulate
an enthusiasm they do not feel or they will
have to go next March, if Mr. Blame is
President Arthur states that he reappoint
ed Murray, Governor of Utah for the reason
"that he is the most offensive man to the
Mormons that the country contains — not ex
cepting Edmunds." This is a singular con
clusion for the Executive to arrive at, for ev
erybody knows that under the Murray-Ed
munds dispensation Mormonism has flour
ished as never before in the same space of
time. The Mormon missionaries have been
successful as never before, in this country,
and abroad, and Mormonism is stronger to
day than ever before. But suppose it be true
that Murray is the most offensive man to the
Mormons the country contains, is that a
creditable motive on which to base Executive
action 1 Is it not contemptible trifling with
grave and important duty i The truth is Ar
thur's only desire in the matter is to get
along with it in the easiest way possible, and
to continue Murray, was, so far as he is con
cerned, the smoothest thing to do, and from
force of sheer indolence he did it. The Mor

Tite religious statistics of the United States,

these there were Protestant, 1,277,052; Eoman
Catholic, 100,000; unclassified, 3,928,873. In
1850, out of a total population of 23,191,876,
there were Protestants, 12,723,158; Roman

In 1870, out of a population of 38,538,371, the
Protestants numbered 24,041,486 ; Roman Catho

This ie in pursuance of a progressive policy
which characterises the curriculum of that insti
tution. It will be a gratification, if nothing
more, to observe how these languages will fare
under the elective sygtem, and how many stu
dents will avail themselves of the privilege to
elect not to bother with the dead languages.
Tr the Natchez Democrat is correctly informed
It is no great hardship to have a life sentence to
the penitentiary of Mississippi, located at Jack

prisoners have the freedom of the city, and
"That some of them are seen day after day in
citizens' clothes going about the streets of Jack
son, and they cannot be distinguished from the
citizens of the town." From this it might be
inferred that the citizens of Jackson, generally,
are life convicts, and are having their board and
lodging at the expense of the state.

Joaquis Miller is an advocate of teaching
practical mechanics in the public schools. He
was lately called into court and was disgusted
with a lawyer who asked a witness to tell the
jury what kind of a tool a jack-plane is. He
thinks that if the lawyer who asked the question
had been taught something of mechanics at
school he would have learned enough not to have
asked so simple a question. To the putting of
that question is attributed the fact that the law
yer lost his case.

Herman Smith was tried by a jury in the
district court yesterday for forging an
order for $5 and was promptly convicted. He
was asked several times to write the name of
the party forged and did it to correspond with
his aitempt in the order in question so ex
actly as to leave no question of his guilt.
F. M. Burlison and M. McDermott, for
stealing satin from Smith's drygoods store,
on Seventh street, both plead guilty to the
larceny and took a twin sentence of two
years in the penitentiary each, where they
will adopt striped goods for apparel.

for assault with dangerous weapons upon
Henry Blom,on the sidewalk^after the break

street, on the evening of Aprii 27. Gebhard
■Woolrich, Esq., appeared for the accused,
and Brown being tried first was acquitted by
the jury without leaving their seats. This
action also acquitted Finkbeiner, whom
County Attorney Egan held to be the least
likely to be convicted on the indictment.
Blom, it will be remembered, was found, af
ter the ball, bleeding fearfully from wounds
inflicted with a knife.
The last case taken up was that of Chas.
Schleif for bastardy, the prosecuting witness
being Margaret Fuchs. The case was orig
inally tried in Hose township, where the par
ties are resident, before Justice Hoyt, who
bound over the prisoner to this court. W.
C. Goforth, Esq., appeared for the defendant
and moved the court for dismissal ou the
ground that bastardy was a civil case .and
not a criminal one, citing 37 Moine for
authority, "that if any action for bastardy is
tried in a criminal court the trial will be
void." The motion was overuled by Judge
Brill on the ground that the district court of
Ramsey "had jurisdiction in both civil and
criminal actions." The impanneling of a
jury was proceeded with, to three of whom
the criminal oath was administered and to the
other nine the civil oath. Goforth at this
point objected to the three jurors who had
been sworn on the criminal oath, whereupon
the court excused them. Goforth then raised
the objection against their places being filled
on tbe ground a jury had already been em
paneled in the case and was overrruled. The
state placed its first witness on the stand,
when it was developed thut the original com
plaint had been sworn out before a notary
public instead of a justice of the peace, the
statute making the swearing out of a com
plaint compulsory on a justice. Goforth ob
jected to any further testimony being taken
in the case on thegronnd the court had no
jurisdiction, which objection was sustained
by the court, the jury peremptorily dismissed,
and the court adjourned. Sehleif having re
gained his freedom thus suddenly made
tracks for liberty, while the poor girl and her
parents immediately took out a new warraut
for his arrest, and seemed very much ag
grieved at the curious turn the law had taken.

Lost His Pocket Book.
J. B. Robbins, who does business at No.
137 East Seventh street, complained at the
city hall last night that he had had his pocket
picked Of a pocket book containing either
$691 or $791, he could not tell which. He
said he had it in his pocket when he and his
wife went out to take the show
case in, and when he got back into
the store the pocket book with
the money was gone. Two men were ar
rested on suspicion, and simply because Mr.
Robbins saw two men in front of ths store
when he went out there. He could not iden
tify the two men that were arrested as being
the ones he saw, while his wifo did not think
they were the ones that were there. They
were accordingly discharged.
IT '9 FOUND.
After the above was written the officers
went down to Robbins' house and found the
pocket book in the back yard. The case is a
very peculiar one, and it is rendered still
more so from the fact that when Officer
Walsh questioned Mr. Robbins as to what
bank he drew the money from he refused to
tell, and claimed that he was not obliged to
tell where he got the money, though he pre
viously stated that he drew it out of a bnnk
to pay a bill wiih. It seems very strange
that he should have asserted that the pocket
book was taken from his pocket, when it was
in fact in his back yard. The officers were
very indignant about the transaction.

DEATH OF BARTLETT PRESLEY.
One of the Oldest Settlers of St. Paul
And in Business Here
Captain and Chief in the Volunteer Fire De
partment-Public Spirited and
Death From Blood Poisoning, lei-suiting
1 io in Heart Disease.
A considerable part of the community was
surprised yesterday afternon to learn that
Bartlett Presley was dead. Ho has been here
so long, was so well known, and was always
about so hearty and well that it never
seemed to occur to any one thut he was like
ly to die. But it seems that his health was
far less rugged than it was supposed to be,
and at 2:30 yesterday afternoon he expired
at his residence on the corner of Summit
and Dayton avenues.
The immediate cause of his death was
heart failure. That is to say, his heart
ceased to operate, owing to his blood being
thin and in poor condition. It is well
known that about two years ugo, Mr. Presley,
while out riding, was thrown from a carriage
and had one of his legs broken below the
knee. From this accident he fully recov
ered, and was as well as ever, apparently.
For many years Mr. Presley has been in the
habit of going south to spend the winter, re
turning in May or June. Last fall, as usual,
he migrated to the south. Some time during
the winter one of his legs, that had troubled
him some herein St. Paul, began to give seri
ous cause for alarm. This was not the leg,
however, that was broken, as many have er
roneously supposed, but it was the other.
The first indications of trouDle were produced
by the appearance of a hard lump on the leg
above the knee. Though somewhat
painful it was not sufficiently so to arrest
immediate attentiou, and the deceased did
not allow it to interfere with the ordinary en
joyments to be found in the south during the
winter months. As time wore along the
lump assumed larger proportions until it be
came necessary to do something. The limb
by this time had swelled to nearly twice the
ordinary si*. . He consulted eminent phy
siciaqs but they could do nothing for him.
He then went to Chicago and submitted the
limb to the inspection of specialists. None
of them helped him. Most of them did not
know what to make of it, and putting a lit
tle iodine on the swelled part of the limb the
specialist sent him away saying that the swell
ing would come down. It did- not decrease
but kept growing worse. He then went to
St. Louis where the iodine remedy was again
recommended and applied with no better re
sults than at Chicago. The deceased then
went to the Hot springs which proved as use
less as all other efforts. He then, thinking
that possibly it might be a cancer, went to
Rome, New York, where he was examined
with care, and was informed that the trouble
was not cancer but something else. Getting
i)O assistance from any quarter, and
especially none from specialists, and the
spring time coming on the deceased re
turned to St. Paul about the Ist of May. The
limb at this time was very much swollen and
had been for several weeks. Doctors Murphy
and Hand were called in and
a very thorough examination was
made, and the conclusion was arrived at
that there was a gathering of matter beneath
the surface. An incision was made and a
large quantity of matter was removed. After
this the swelling went down a good deal and
Mr. Presley appeared to improve. Sunday
he was up and yesterday morning he was ap
parently better and lay down on the lounge.
About noon he began to fail and died at 2:30
In the afternoon, of what is called blood
The following description of the deceased
was prepared and published by Mr. T. M.
Newson, in his "Pen Pictures," in the
Globe of March 16, 1884:
"That short, chunky man, talking slowly,
is the gentleman whose name heads this par
agraph. He is a little different from the or
dinary cut of men; has a solid, lymphatic
characteristic, but a pensiveness which marks
the man of thought and the man of business.
He was born in Germany in the year 1823;
was raised in St. Louis; married in 1843;
moved to Galena in 1849, and from thence
came to St. Paul the same year. He com
menced with nothing forty years ago, dealing
iv fruits, etc., and from this he drifted into
the retail and wholesale grocery business,
but of late years he has made fruits his
specialty, dealing largely in them, and buy
ing directly from the points where they arc
raised, eastern California and other places.
He was the original fruit dealer in this city,
and to-day is by far the heaviest merchant in
this line. Mr. Presley was a member of the
common council three continuous years,
and chief engineer of our fire department for
three years. He purchased the first steam
fire engine brought to St. Paul. He took the
position of chief engineer at a time when the
department was in bad odor, and left it in an
elevated and efficient condition. What is
remarkable, he is the only merchant in St.
Paul, or in the state, who has been continu
ously in business forty years. He is a living
illustration of a fact, that a legitimate busi
ness closely adhered to for a series of years,
will prove triumphant in the end. In person
Mr. Presley represents the German type of
man, with heavy features and a slow and
cautious movement. He speaks a little
broken and somewhat thick, owing to a
throat difficulty, yet expresses himself in a
clear and terse manner. He is never idle;
never has been. Always attends to his own
business and plods on day after day with
renewed determination to add something
more to his financial gains. When chief
of the fire department, who does not
remember tbe kindly acts of his departed
wife, who, in the coldest of weather, when
the jaded firemen were almost ready to give
out, she replenished them with hot coffee,
not once but many times; of her presenta
tion of flags to the gallant boys ; of her con
stant efforts to encourage and sustain them ?
And who was kinder to the firemen than ]}.
Presley? Many a once yonng man, now
growing gray, will remember these kindly
acts — these sweet memories of a by-gone day.
Mr. Presley erected yearsago, various tenement
houses on Eighth street, and among the
number was one known a3 the Clubhouse.
Only a few years ago he built an elegant bus
iness block on the site of his old stand, and
to-day he is estimated to be worth $200, (#>o.
Quiet, unobtrusive,industrious,soiid, yet pub
lic spirited and enterprising, Mr. Presley
ought to be satisfied with bis success, and
from what we know of the man, we guess
HIS FAMILY. *
Mr. Presley was twice married. His first
wife died about three years ago. Subse
quently he was married to Mrs. Wingfield,
the daughter of Capt. John Martin, who sur
The funeral will take place from bis late
residence on the corner of Summit and Day

which he was a prominent member.

It was a tame morning at the municipal
court yesterday, although it was the hottest
of the season atmospherically. J. Quill, a
young desperado who had just finished a
term of five days at the workhouse for drunk
enness, was arraigned for drawing a revol

ago, and was given a chance to go out to
raise $20 fine with no officer in eight, in
hopes that he would feather out of town, it
being considered the cheapest w»y to be quit
W. Wilson, the JY.ckson street young
mulatto nigqt shooter, said he was guilty of
planting a laden pill in the leg of }ne Cum

await the action of the next grand jury.
Kate Filbert concluded she wouldn't have
her case cracked open in the court on a
charge of street promenading at unseemly
hours and forfeited her ?15 bail.
E Anderson, who got on a terrible bender
and whooped it up in the tunnel on Sabbath
afternoon, paid in a $10 fine and registered
a vow that if he ever got in a budge again
he would find a place to do it in where the
contingent expenses were not so ilat-footed,
P. Poison and N. 'Goslin, a pair of twin

the patrol wagon's failing to back up its
complaint for bringing him in from Iglehart
street the night before, shuffled out the door
in high glee at his escape from the coppers.
Arthur Hoffman was arraigned and com
mitted to the county jail for a hearing for
larceny to-day. Arthur's troubles had all oc
curred on acconnt of a watch belonging to
another fellow mysteriously getting into his
pocket, for the life of him how he could not
tell. Truly we live in dangerous times when

Gov. Ordway of Dakota, soon to be ex-
Gov. Ordway, came in from Yankton yester
day noon and took the afternoon train for
Bismarck. He was captured by a Globe
representative during bis brief stay. The
governor was found to be bigbly pleased
with the quashing of the "indictments
against him and also happy over the fact
that he had secured orders from
Washington for an investigation
both of himself and Attorney General
Campbell. He seemed to think that the in
vestigation would show tho malice and false
hood of his accuser. In relation to appoint
ment of bis successor Gov. Ordway expressed
himself very cordially. Mr. Pierce was a
man whom he knew very well, a very good
man, highly educated and well qualified for
the place. He presumed it might be some
weeks before he turned over the office, us

Petition for a Receiver.
It will be remembered that some time
since the firm of Mayo & Clark, dealers in
iron and hardware, became financially em
barrassed, and one of the members went
east to arrange for some relief to their busi
ness. What the result of the trip was is not
known, but it is presumed that the easement
sought was not forthcoming, as yesterday
Messrs. Nichols & Dean and Averill, Russell
& Carpenter filed papers in the district court
asking that lhcy be adjudged insolvent and
that a receiver be appointed. The petition
ers sold and delivered goods to Mayo tt
Chirk, and took their notes for the amounts
due. The petition will l.m heard in special
term at 10 o'clock Saturday morning.
On Sunday evening the moon went down
at 11:30, at midnight the electric lights were
extinguished, and the skies being cloudy
the streets of the city were left iv inky dark
ness, not a single gas light being visible.
Last night the siinie state of things existed
at midnight, with the exception of a solitary
gas light burning on the corner of Third and
Wabushaw streets. It would seem that *o
large a city as this should be lighted with
street lamps at night when there is no moon

venience but of public: necessity for peace

The Hutu of the Hour.
To the Editor of the Globe :
One set of men are anxious that the Dem
ocrats would blunder bo that the Republicans
would have an assured victory. And there
are men who care less for party than for gen
eral safety, and who therefore would like Re
publicans and Democrats alike to put up
good men, so that in any event the country
would ' be well served. In
the interest of the Democratic
party the leaders should hesitate to express
i preferences or condemn men in advance.
No man can foretell the action of a conven
tion, and the delegates that will remain alike
unpledged and unbiased will be the delegates
that will be most valuable to tbelr constitu
ents and- the country. Minnesota, in partic
ular, being a Republican state should hesi
tate to commit itself to any man, but rather
should be ready to cheer on by voice
and vote the action of the Democratic
states that will elect a candidate
of that party, if one is to succeed. A good
thing would be for the delegates to keep their
minds to themselves, and give the Inter
viewer and the gossips a cold shoulder. The
best men should be selected, but the states
that will elect ought to be heard from before
our people will select their man.

July 7th, tho Date Set For The Re*

The Upper Mississippi.
[Special Telegram to the Globe. |
Chicago, June 30.— The freight managers
of the lines interested in the upper Mississi- ■
ppi river traffic met at Commissioner Car
man's office to-day, and after a long session
agreed to restore all rates July 7, to the
basis of the spring tariff. It
was also decided to allow the boat lines the
old differentials. This dispose! of one more
troublesome disturbance In the North
western. Had matters not been fixed up at
to-day's meeting a lively fostlade would have
been inaugurated, which would have severe
ly tested the bulwarks of the Northwestern
pool. The Illinois Central and St. Paul
favored the Northwestern a week 1 :iir > with
their ultimatum, which was to openly cut
rates to all common points with the North
western should the latter not come to time
before July 1. The Northwestern people were
satisfied that their competitors meant busi
ness, and they were more than ready to
come to terms.
At the conclusion of the conference proper
the members engaged iv an informal
discussion of Central lowa mat
ters that business haviug been
more or less demoralized since the collapse
of the Central lowa Traffic association. The
result of the convention was gratifying in
that it was decided to call a meeting looktnj
toward the re-establishment ol the Centra.
lowa Traffic association, to be held at Com
mi.-sioner Carman's office to-day. The pros
pect of an early settlement of the Dcs Moines
differences, the only remaining unpleasant
ness in tbe northwest, is good.
