For the first time in the modern history of

The gout means familiarity with the juice
Qf the grapes grown in the romantic valley of
the Douro. It means cobwebbed bottles
from caches constructed during preceeding
centuries. It means the mahogany of Dukes
and Earls, and it also includes aristocratic
intermingling, the kissing of the hand of
Countesses, and an inhalation of the perfum
ed atmosphere of West End, London. All
this is meant by the gout of the American
minister at the court of St. James.
For once into our diplomatic history we
have gotten ourselves into the presence of
the haut ton and haye as evidence of it the

it now enjoys from this occurrence, it will

MR. GILFILLAN TIIE NOMINEE.
The meeting of the defunct Fourth Dis
trict Republican committee at Minneapolis
to-day is an anomaly in politics. A conven
tion duly called convened in Minneapolis on
the 28th of May and after nominating Hon.
J. B. Gilfillan for Congress authorized the
chairman of the convention to ap
point a new district committee. The chair
man having declined to appoint a new com
mittee, this does not rehabilitate the old com
mittee. That expired with the calling to or
der of the convention, and doubly expired
when a new committee was ordered.
Mr. Gilfillan can judge, somewhat, by the
pressure which was brought to bear upon
him when he was conducted into the Y. M.
C. A. room, while en, route to appear
before the convention, what the tactics
will be at the committee meeting to-day.
He manfully resisted the attempt to bulldoze
him oil the track upon the day of the con
vention, and he owes it to his friends and
to his own self-respect to utterly ignore this
officious intermeddling which is to be at
tempted to-day. There is no Republican
Fourth District committee in existence, and
Mr. (iilflillan, Mr. Barker and their friends
should decline to have anything to do with
the so-called conference.
The Globe urges Mr. Gilfillan to stand
firm and maintain his rights. The eyes of
the Republicans of the Fourth district arc
radiating up and down his spinal column,
hoping to see no sign of weakness. Mr.
Gilfillau owes it to the loyal Republicans of
this district to "stick," and in their name
and in their behalf the Globe urges, nay de
mands, that he shall refuse to recognize the
rump gathering at Minneapolis to-day. '■ If
such things are to be permitted we can never
hope to maintain the integrity and success
of th.'. Republican party. Does Mr.
Gilfillan imagine that if Mr.' Fletcher
had been nominated he would have recog
nized any committee, new or old, which
might ask him to decline?
The Globe does not believe that the hair
pins of which Mr. Gilfillan is composed are
made of any such yielding stuff and
in behalf of the autonomy of the
Republican party, we insist that,
he invite Gen. McLaren and his associates
to visit that sylvan retreat where ice houses
and Minnesota winters are unknowu.
It would be unfair to Mr. Barker, who so
bravely and gallantly held the convention in
the hollow of his hand, to recognize Gen.
McLaren & Co's authority, and we are sure
that the warm pulsations of Mr. Giltillan's
petrified heart will never permit him to des
troy a friend and his party as well, by leav
ing them in the lurch at this crisis.
The Gilfillan platform should be now and
1 liUYIXG THE NOMINATION.
It is stated on good authority that the pro
cess of "booming" Mr. Arthur for the Presi
dency cost the managers of his campaign
$300,000 in cool cash, and enough is known
of the Blame campaign to warrant the state
ment that the expenditures in his behalf ex
ceed the Arthur pot-money between one and
two hundred thousand dollars. One "friend"
of Blame contributed the sum of $50,000
and if Blame is elected he is booked for a
chance to "make" a million.
When one reviews the methods employed
to build up the chances of these contestants,
these large sums seem really inadequate for
the purposes for which they were employed,
and the visible and invisible requirements for
money are so limitless, that on the whole it
appears a reasonable economy prevailed.
Much money was required and sent into
doubtful districts and states to be used in I
securing delegates, and after the members j
of the convention were appointed there had
to be liberal distributions to produce the need
ed "change of mind' to secure success.
The Republican method of nominating a !
President in the convention of June 3d was
• matter of money wholly.
For months prior to the sitting of the j
nominating body expensive headquarters }
had been opened in a number of centers, <
like Washington, New York, Philadelphia I
and Chicago. Delegates and their friends, !
whether for Arthur or Blame or some i
other favorite were royally, entertained, "and \
in cases '"loans"' were made, and everything ;
done to win the favor of tjje individuals,
whom the clever local conventions had in
vested with the authority to appear as dele
gates at the great convention.
Hundreds of dollars a day were spent at
Chicago two weeks or more before the con- j
vention, and during its session the expend!-, :
tuns for refreshments, music, badges, and
the various glittering' ■ devices . required to
keep up the show were something royaL
The sums paid to delegates "on the make,"
can never be known, bat they were on. the
same scale of breadth 'as the outride show
which was invoked to dazzle and bewilder, j
those both on the ■ inside and outside of the .
national mob. - ■■-

chased howling down of another* The
Arthur party undertook to out-hoot the
Blame crowd, but were beaten at their own
game. Senator Miller, of New York, was at
Chicago as a Blame man. Arthur's mana
gers hired a glee club from the city of Herki
mer, N. T., (Miller's home) and paid them
extravagantly "to make both night and day
hideous in howling campaign doggerel in
front of the Blame headquarters." And so
the struggle went on, a mere game of adven
turers, taking the cut-throat chance of win
ning, and in recouping themselves for the
money paid out, from the national treasury.
It has simply come to this, that the nomi
nation for President by the Republican par
ty is merely a strife in the shambles, a game
of cheating and deception, and in the end, if
success be gained at the polls, huge robbery
of the national treasury. After such methods
of gaining a nomination, what may not be
expected in the strife to secure the electoral
vote. It is impossible to conceive of the
height and depth of corruption that will be
employed for this purpose.
REPUBLICAN SOLICITUDE FOR THE
There is something almost touching in the
sympathy which is being expressed by the Re
publican newspapers over the unfortunate
condition of the Democratic party. They
seem to feel most keenly the unfortunate
position of their opponents, and are sparing
no pains to advise them what they must do
in order to extricate themselves from their
undesirable predicament. In fact, if the
Democrats do not succeed in extricating
themselves from embarrassment it will not
be the fault of the other side. If the masses
of the Democratic party do not see the posi
tion in which they are placed, it will not be
the fault of their generous opponents. If
they fail to appreciate how hopeles&ly they are
logged, and how sure they are destined to
defeat, every Republican can wash his hands
of all moral responsibility for the^result, and
will be able to say with a clear conscience
''I warned you; it is your own fault that you
did not heed the intimation,"
The Democratic party should heed these
timely counsels, and not delay taking the
necessary steps, if it be not too late, to re
cover the lost ground. It is well too, that the
majority of the party 6hould be informed
wherein the trouble lies, as all of them haven't
the smallest suspicion that they are sick unto
death, and liable at any moment to dissolu
tion. It is evidently a very sick party with
out in the least knowing it.
One of the things which grieves the Re
publicans is that there is a wide difference
of opinion on the part of Democrats in refer
ence to the nomination of Mr. Cleveland.
They are apprehensive that if the Democrats
shall nominate him he will not receive a
cordial and unanimous support. They are
very much alarmed lest his veto of the five
cent fare bill has prejudiced the Irish against
him, and that he will not be able to carry
New York. In addition to this objection
they think Cleveland is not much of a man
anyhow and that on this account if nomin
ated he will be sure to be defeated.
They also have an objection to Bayard.
Many years ago, as they assert that gentle
man made a speech in which he did not can
didly endorse the carrying on of a war for
the purpose of continuing the Republican
succession, and they fear that this will be
considered as a tieasonable utterance and
may injure the vote which Mr. Ba3'ard would
receive as a candidate for the Presidency.
While we are thus kindly warned against
the selection of either Mr. Cleveland, or Mr.
Bayard, we are advised against Mr. McDon
ald of Ind. principally on the ground that he
is "old Joe" McDonald, this objection being
one of the strongest, in many cases against
the value of any Democratic aspirant. Mr.
Tilden was never a suitable candidate for
the reason that he was only "Sammy Til
den". Another man who is ineligible on
the same ground is "Bill" English; there is
nothing against him orthe others except the
sweeping damnation "old Joe," "Sammy,"
and"Bill." It is not to be expected that
any reputable Democrat will be willing to
vote for any candidate who is liable to sup
port such an aspersion.
The Republicans are very much worried
not only over the man whom the Democrats
may select, but also over the platform which
they may adopt. They arc certain that the
Democracy is about to experience dissensions
of the most serious nature. They will be
sure to endeavor to adopt a platform which
will favor a high tariff, at the same time that
they include one which will deny the neces
sity of any tariff at all, and all the time these
good Republicans are certain that the plat
form will dodge the tariff issue entirely, and
will contain an utterance which may be in
terpreted to mean anything or nothing.
Now the question is^ what do the Republi
cans wish the Democrats to do? They are
convinced that it would be ruinous for the
Democrats to nominate Cleveland, "old Joe,"
'•Maedonald," "Sammy" Tilden, or "Bill"
English, or "Standard -oil" Payne. Whom
shall the party nominate? Who will suit the
Republicans? They are undoubtedly our
friends, and their suggestions have reference
of course only to our good. Such being the
case, would not the Democrats be doing the
best thing for themselves, and at the same
time, affect a generous recognition of the
solicitude of the Republicans to allow them
to name the Democratic candidate, and
write the Democratic platform? It is evident
from what the Republicans are saying of the
men who are being talked of by the Demo
crats that they will never do at all. We are
all wrong, and we are simply inviting ruin
if we persist in our present way. Will the
Republicans who are taking such an interest
in our welfare please point us the way out of
Nathaniel Macon, of North Carolina, was
elected to the House of Representatives in 1791
and was re-elected until 1816, when he was trans
ferred to the Senate, where he served until 1828,
when he resigned. 'While in the House he
served as its Speaker from 1801 to 1806, when
he declined farther service in that office. His is
the only portrait missing of all the Speakers of
Congress . He had a constitutional objection to
having his lineaments transmitted for the view
of posterity and steadily resisted all attempts in
that direction. Indeed, it is said that he nncc
caused the destruction of a sketch which an art
ist was discovered making of him while presiding
as Speaker. Ho left at his death which occurred
June 29, 1837, particular directions that no
; picture of him should be retained and that his
j grave should be unmarked by any monument ex

the grave might be permitted to add a stone.

[To the Editor of the N. Y. World.]
Although I agree with the World that the best
nominations that can be made at Chicago are
Grover Cleveland for president and George
Hoadly for vice president, I have a suggestion
which finds much favor among the "Young De
mocracy" in the event • that the convention shall
deem it best to nominate for president some
western man. It is that for vice president they
introduce young blood into the canvass by nomi
nating Hon. William C. Whitney, of New York,

This is a royal suggestion. Mr. Whitney
is one of the ablest men in New York. 'He
has for years been the corporation counsel of

one of the leaders of the party. His selec

Lloyd Porter on application of his counsel
for a continuance of his trial to the fall term,
for killing John Thomas Nary on the even
ing of April Ist, for the purpose of obtaining
certain depositions, had the same granted.
Martin Gunderson was arraigned for sen
tence for manslaughter in the fourth de
gree for the killing of Kosk, and was given
two years at hard labor in the penitentiary
In consideration of his youth, an attempt
will be made by the friends of Herman
Smith, the young forger, to have Judge Brill
remit his sentence of one year in the peni
tentiary to a term of imprisonment in the
Ramsey county jail.
The last criminal trial of the term was
taken up yesterday forenoon, it being that
of James Renehine, of Minneapolis, for
ravishment of the sixteen year old Swede
girl, Lizzie Gustafsen, on a by-road within
the limits of Ramsey county, near the farm*
of Stephen Deroyer in the neighborhood of
Midway, Oct. 31, 1883. . The victim had
come from Wisconsin to St. Paul to get work,
was in this city a few weeks and went up to
Minneapolis on a similar errand. Here she
was met at the depot be Benehine,
who ran an express wagon, who took her
home to his wif to whom he had been mar
ried but a few months, to see if she did not
want her to help her at dress making. She
not wanting a girl, Lizzie staid there all
night, and Renehine took her in ,his wagon
next morning to drive her to the depot, but
instead took her to an .unfrequented place
between the two cities and committed a
heinous crime. ;He brought her out of the
woods, and on seeing Officer Sullivan of the
St. Paul force she jumped from the wagon and
made her complaint of the outrage. At
tempts were made to settle for damages with
the girl, which were frustrated by Chief West,
of the Minneapolis police, the victim, after
all the injuries she had received, feeling such
sympathy with Renehine's injured wife, who
is pitifully broken down by the crime and ar
rest of her husband, that she could have been
persuaded to hush it up if the knowledge of
the affair could have been kept from her
mother in "Wisconsin.
Hon. J. J. Egnn appeared for the state
and Col. Welch of Minneapolis and Thomas
Ryan, Esq., of this city, for the defendant.
The girl was placed on the stand and her tes
timony was substantially the same as in the
facts above enumerated, and Officer Sullivan
being next called corroborated her relative
to her complaint, etc. At about 5 o'clock the
defendant was called to the stand when it
became evident that he was an adept at play
ing insanity or was in reality iusaue, and
his counsel asked for an adjournment until
this morning which was granted by Judge
Brill, and the court adjourned to 10 a. m.
It was then stated by the county attorney
to the judge that six weeks ago that on cer
tain facts furnished by Sheriff O'Gorman
he had filed in formation of insanity with the
probate court and that the prisoner
was arraigned and examined by Drs.
McDonald and Quinn, and pronounced by
them to be sane. Col. Welch said that the
prisoner appeared well mentally that day,
and that since that they had not seen him
though Mrs. Renehine had constantly asserted
that "Jim was crazy." Col. Welch stated
that he had known Renehine personally for
many years and that the prisoner yesterday
gave him no recognition at all, and though sit
ting but a few feet from his weeping wife in the
court room, and a sister of his, who had come
on from Milwaukee, had given them no
heed, and evidently nothing else that w.is
going on in the court room. He said he had
not seen him for six weeks, and had no idea
of his mental condition now until he came
to place him on the stand. Had he known
it he should have called for an examination
by physicians before the jury was impaneled
in the case.
Sheriff O'Gorman said that since the ex
amination for insanity the prisoner had been
gradually growing worse in the jail, and for
the past ten days very perceptibly so and he
believed he had not been la his right mind
for two months. Mr. Egan said that whether
he was insane or not it was evident that he
was broken down physically and that the
time of his death was not far distant. Spec
tators remarked upon the stolid and vacant
expression on his face, during the whole day,
which they more particularly noticed while
hi* victim was giving her convicting testi
mony, which caused not the movement of a
muscle of his face or a single intelligent look
from his eye.
It was finally concluded by the court to
hold an examination of the prisoner this
morning before the opening of the court, to
test his sanity, Mr. Egan naming Dr. Board
man for one of the physicians, and his coun
sel preferring Drs. McDonald and Quinn,
who had made the previous examination, as
his associates. There is no question as to
his sanity at the time of the commitment of
the deed, but the test is to be of his present
mental condition, which seemed to be out
side the powers of human shamming when
he was placed in the witness box.
It is thought, whether this case should go
on or be declared off this moruine, that the
court will adjourn sine die this afternoon,
the trial docket being exhausted with this
THE LAST OF EARTH.
Fnneral of Bartlett Presley at 3 p.m.
The funeral of Bartlett Presley, whose
death Monday afternoon has been fully
chronicled by the Globe tnkes place at three
o'clock this afternoon from his late resi
dence, corner of Dayton and Summit ave
nues. Mr. Piesley was a communicant,
of St. Paul's (Episcopal) church, and the re
ligious services will ba conducted by Rev.
Dr. E. S. Thomas, rector of that Parish. Mr.
Presley's connection with the Masonic fra
ternity and with the Fire Department of the
city was of such long standing and import
ance that both organizations will participate
in paying the final tribute of respect to his
life and memory and will escort his remains
to Oakland cemetery for their last, their long
Damascus Com mandcry Knight Templars
will attend in a body. An erroneous report
has been circulated through some misappre
hension that only fifty Knights would partic
ipate in the funeral ceremonies. The de
ceased was too prominent a Mason and
has been to long and too closely identified
with the order to have the attend
ance so limited a number as that. The
whole commandery will appear, and all the
members have been notified to meet at the
A.-y'.um at 2 o'clock this afternoon, so as to
have sufficient time to make suitable ar
rangements and to go to the residence.
Every member is desired to be punctually on
hand at 2 o'clock.*
A special meeting of the St. Paul Fire
men's association was held at the district
court room last evening to make
arrangements for the attendance of
its membership in a body upon the
funeral exercises of Bartlett Pres
lery which takes place from his residence on
the corner of Summit and Dayton avenues
at 3 o'clock this afternoon. A committee of
arrangements, consisting of Messrs. J. G.
Donnelly and Lewis Hertel were appointed
on the part of the association to take charge
of the association part of the cortege, and the
following committee on resolutions were ap
pointed: R. C. Wiley, E. B. King, J. 8.
Donnelly, J. Leseh, S. W. Freeman, E. H.
Schlick, J. C. Pendergast.
Ir was stated that the deceased was a mem
ber of the association, one of the most active
and devoted of the ojd volunteer fire depart
ment of the city of which he was chief, and
that through bis personal exertions the first
steamer of the city was purchased.
The association will meet at engine house
No. 1, at two o'clock sharp, vbere they will
be joined by the entire active fire depart
ment of the city under Chief Black and the
fire commissioners, who at a meeting at 9
o'clock this morning will authorize their
taking part in the procession with the appa
ratus which they man.

Watchmaker— Schleif Again
In the Net.
It was a regular broth of a row which Maria
Connelly had with John and Julia Mahiggen
and which having been mouldering for a
long time broke out in volcanic fires at
noonday. The two dames called each other
names, fired rocks at each other and at their
respective hens, dogs and cats, and as usual
finally involved John in the muss, when they
got into cloaft combat and commenced pull
ing eath other's natural chignons. The
court, after grasping the facts out of a per
fect whirlwind of testimony mulcted Maria,
the compainant, out of $25 hard earned wash
receipts and placed the other combatants
under bonds to keep the heace.
Otto Hoffman, who stole a watch and chain
I worth* £40 from his room mate and realized
j on it at a Minneapolis pawn shop, where it
was recovered by Officer Bcbeffer, had his
case still further continued until to-day, and
languishes in the county jail as a result of
doing a too heavy business on tick.
Samuel Cohen wat brought up for trying
to fresco the countenance of Mr. Haber
strong, who objected to having his portrait
painted on his own cuticle. Sam was held
in 1100 bail for appearance for trial to-day,
and a3 $100 is a good deal of money, he will
probably go the court halves as a compro
mise instead of skipping the metropolis.
F. McGovern paid the court 929.50 in an
I old case of assault and battery, and Mrs.
Schultz $25 for disorderly . conduct, and
neither will feel able to take a trip to Minne
tonka on the Fourth. They sorrowfully
counted out the crisp national bank bills in
the purchase of their freedom and the angry .;
passions within their breasts were as dead as
a stranded and sanstruck quohoy clam .at !
' Chas. Schleif, who escaped the tangled
meshes of the law in the district court on
Monday afternoon in an action for bigamy,
having been re-arrested on a complaint made
out this time by a justice of the peace, had
his case continued until to-day. He trifled
with the affections of a poor girl in Rose
township, who feels terribly grieved because
he will not step up like a man and wed her.
He has been heard to make some very dis
paraging : remarks concerning his victim,
and is evidently on the highway to get the
full dose provided for such reprobates by the
John Wagner for assault and battery bad
his case continued until to-day. M. Mur
phy, a chronic ' drunk, was sent up for five
days, and R. Barnes and A. Bethel, two
blear eyed vagrants, were told not to stop
even to beg a drink that the city might not >
henceforth or forever more again know their

A Bullet in His Brain Does the Work
The Victim Unknown and the Cause of the
Deed a Mystery.
A little after 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon
the porter and others in the St. Thomas hotel,
on Wacouta Btreet,betveen Third and Fourth
streets, heard a pistol shot, and upon going;
up stairs into the third story, found
a man in one of the rooms who
had evidently just committed
suicide. The man was undressed and in
Led, lying upon his back with two pillowf
under his head. His right hand had dropped
across his breast, and between his right arm
and his body lay a small, cheap revolver,
such. as is seen iv the windows of second
hand stores. In the right temple was a bul
let hole, from which blood was freely flowing.
The man's clothing was on a chair near the
bed, and everything indicated that the cas«
was one of deliberate and calmly planned
suicide. Those who first went up seeing
what had been done, cleared the room and
locked the door. The coroner, having in the
meantime been notified, arrived in a few
minutes after and made an examination of
the man. By the time he arrived the blood
had flowed from the wound to such an extent
as to fill the bed.
APPEARANCE OF TIIE MAX.
The deceased was a man about five feet,
eight or nine inches in height, as one would
judge from the way he lay iv the
bed, and between fifty and
sixty years of age, and of rather a
full habit. He had rather a large head and
face, with a broad, high forehead. His face
was smoothly shaved, while a rather heavy
grey moustache graced his upper lip. The
face and genuine appearance of the deceased
was that of a well disposed, benevolent man,
who, at some period iv his existence, had
possessed a competency.
WHAT IS KNOWN OF HIM HERE.
Very little is known of him' here. Some
of those in the hotel, where he has been for
several weeks, said the deceased
had been running for some
emigrant house, and that he had
been in the habit of doing odd jobs of work,
such as he could find to do from time to
time, and in this way he had picked up a
kind of a living, such as it wns. They all
give the man a good character as to general
conduct, but none of them know where ho
came from nor what his former circumstances
were, nor had he told uny of them what
troubles and misfortunes had forced him to
wander off up here alone and without means.
He was fairly well dressed and wore a bla ck
A XOTE FOUND.
Upon the stand, at the head of the bed,
was found a letter in a yellow envelope. The
superscription was as follows: "Lewis Stone,
Esq., National Home, Milwaukee county,
Wis." The letter was dated: "Havana,
111., April '.33, ISS4," and was signed Mar
garet Stone, and addressed, "My dear hus
band." It was written in lead pencil. Thft
composition, punctuation, capital letters,
&c., were all correct, and the statements
made were clearly and sensibly ex
pressed. There was nothing special
in the letter. The writer regretted
that they were separated and hoped they
would soon be together soon, and was mostly
tilled with private affairs. On the outside of .
the envelope were written these words, in a
cramped, inexperienced hand:
My dear wife i teck my pin in my hand to let
you know iam gating batter sen i left the home
becaase my mint was so obset taing about you.
There was no signature attached to this
note, and from the fact that the envelope is
directed to Lewis Stone, and the the letter in
signed Margret Stone, it is supposed the name
of the deceased was Lewis Stone. Several
other names were found in memorandum
books and on odd scraps of paper, and he
registered by some other name. The coron
er took it for granted that his name was
Stone, and telegraphed to Illinois. On
searching for his effects but little was found.
Two dollars and four cents was all the money
he had. A few little matters, which the cor«
oner tied up in a handkerchief, constitute!
all the deceased man's worldly wealth. The
inquest will be held to-day.

DEATH OF DR. F. SMITH.
He Drops Dead of Heart Disease at
His Office Door in Far<ro.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Fargo, July I.— About 3 o'clock this af
ternoon Dr. Frank Smith, of St. Paul, who
has been here about three weeks, fell deafl as
he was unlocking the door of his office in
the second story of a business house on
Broadway. He had just, come up stairs, and
it is supposed he died of heart disease. Ilia
wife and son are at St. Paul, the latter In

The Cuban Trouble.
Key West, July 1. — Diaz, the Cuban who
returned in the schooner Shavers, was con
victed to-day of violation of the neutrality
laws by aiding in fitting out an armed expe
dition against a friendly power. The jury
was only out sufficiently long to take ■ good
dinner. A curious feature of this Aguero
matter has been made public to-day. Among
the papers left here by him was a letter from
a prominent and influential Spaniard whe
had traveled with Aguero from
New Orleans to Key West and bad then
proceeded to Havana, leaving Aguero here.
During the voyage the matter of the con
templated raid was discussed, the Spaniard
edeavoring to dissuade Aguero on account
of the disturbed condition of Cuba, and as
suring him large sums of money would be
contributed by Havense for his benefit, in
which the government would probably join,
if he would desist from his purposes. • The
letter states the writer had seen Captain
General Castillo, who had said such matters
I were not bo arranged, that he had at heart
only the peace, happiness and ' prosperity
of the country. But if th«
statements were * made through
\ proper channels, guarantees given or bobm
legalized method adopted of reaching th«
matter it might be considered. Aguero re
plied saying that simultaneously with the re
ceipt of the letter he should be in Cuba readj
to continue the correspondence.
The government officials are informed
that a vessel has left the northern port with
a large quantity of amunition on board. The
plan is for the vessel to run into Hillsboro
through the inlet and there be met by a small
craft here which will land the stores at Torch
Key or Bur;ar Loaf, where they propose to es •
tablish a secret magazine.
