BOARD OF EDUCATION.
No Quorum, but a Report that Would
Have Been Made.
From the usual coutse of events, last night
should have seen the assembling of the august
body of gentlemen who have the management
of the educational department of the city gov
ernment in a regular session, but from some
cause, perhaps owing to tbe over exhaustion of
some of the members from Saturday's warm and
wordy war over the music question, which
proved to be anything but a question of harmony,
ere was not present a sufficient number to form
a quorum lnspectors Dreher, Giesen, Minor 1
and Mr. President being the only members put
ting in an appearance. Had there been a meet
ing Superintendent Wright would have mads a
report and his report would have stated that the I
Schools opened yesterday under somewhat ad
verse circumstances, owing to the fact that
Adams. ' Kice, Sibley and Uumboklt
schools are not ready for occupancy, and yet
there are about I.SOO pupils more registered
than last term and thirty more teachers em
ployed. The Neill and Kice schools owing to
Blow progress made by the contractors will not j
be read) before November 1. The Hnmboldt
wili be ready by Oct. 1, and the Adams mid Sice
in a few days The report would also have !
stated that the commercial department of the I
high school has been organized and a course, of
study adopted representing two years' work in
cluding the usual studies of commercial schools
ami other English studies that are practical, such
as Engilsh grammar, composition, civil govern
rucnt, natural philosophy and political economy. ,

them a cent for handling the wheat here.
They should have a cent and a half at least
for handling, as It costs nearly that amount.
So as far ns Messrs. Mas terra at «& Brush arc
concerned they pay the very highest price,
and will continue to do so. Mr." W. Bother
ford tried the experiment of shipping to
Minneapolis, having been promised as he
supposed 77c per bushel, but when it went
through the Inspector's hands, he was tele
graphed here, that there were a couple of
rejected can of . wheat awaiting his order.
He paid three cents per bushel" as freight,
and if he has to pay demurrage, his wheat
will yield but a small return. By this it will
be seen that the farmers can do just as well
here with their wheat as at any other point.
We were assured that the Florence mill will
be running in a week or two, when just as
good prices will be paid as at any point in

which came In contact with a lamp post with
such force as to bend it. Mrs. Mellin re

but was unhurt. Another child was thrown
over the fence into Mr. M. Williams 1 yard,

Wm. Daniel, Prohibitionist Candidate j
for Vice President, Kxpresses
the Opinion that Cleve
land Will Win.
[Special Telegram to the Globe. 1
Chicago, Sept. I.— Mr. Win. Daniel, of Mary
land, ex-Gov. St. John's running mate on the
Prohibition presidential ticket, arrived at the
Palmer house this morning in a jaded condition
from across rue mountains. lie comes west on |
a stumping tour, and after filling engagements '
will return to Maryland. He says St. John puts |
the temperance vote at one million, which he
thinks a little high. In his opinion there is a
very strong prohibition sentiment in the south
which is now latent but is capable of develop
ment.
Mr, Daniels was formerly a Republican and he
says the Republicans had the Prohibitionists
with them but- dropped them
to securetho Germans and now they
have lost both. "I have traveled over the coun
try to some extent, and I am prepared to say
that the German defection from the Republican j
ranks very greatly out-wclghs the Irish defec
tion from tbe Democratic ranks. The Demo
crats took the attention of tne Germans on the
temperence vole. They concluded the German
vote was the'greatest, and accepted that. All
well and good. They were welcome to choose,
but though the Prohibitionists may not this
year be able to poll as large a vote as the Ger- I
mans, their future growth, if made with as much )
rapidity as the past, will, in a few year*, exceed
the immigrants from Bismarck's dominion."
As between Cleveland and Blame he regards
Cleveland as much the strongest, though he
thinks the personal attacks have done some
damage, but says in comparing their public
record Cleveland is pre-eminently the man.
M.& ST. P. MANAGEMENT.
Mr. Kipley's Probable Position and
Salary— Other Changes
[Special Telegram to the Globe,]
Chicago, Sept. 1. — E. P. Ripley, general
freight agent of the Burlington, left yesterday
for Milwaukee on a two-fold mission. The les
ser object of the visit was to attend a meeting of |
the Rockfonl pool, bat the more important was I
to give an answer to the offer of the office of
assistant general manager of the St Paul
road. It ii believed that he will
accept. The question of salary will enter into a
decision of the matter, lie has been offered
$10,000 by the St. Paul people, which is $2,000
more than be receives at tho present. The Bur
lington will cover the St. Paul figure if he will
remain, but will not chant,".- his title. On the
St. Paul he would be virtu^lif sreneral
manager, Mr. Merrill's poor health
unfitting him from active service. Mr.
Hipley would supersede Roswell Miller as acting
manager, although the latter would be retained
with his present rank. Mr. Miller is a lawyer
rather than a railroad man and his duties would
be advisory rather than executive. It is said
that Mr. Miller would have added to his title
that of third vice president.
TIIS BnULINGTOSJ VACANTT.
Should Mr. Ripley leave, his eucccssor will
probably be chosen from three officials who are
mentioned, Joseph F. Tucker, J. A. Grlerand
Paul Martin. It is intimated that Mr. Tucker
is considering a more advantageous offer, so
that he would possibly not accept. Mr. Grier
has been approached' regarding the matter, but
has not yet made answer. It is
not improbable that ho may be inclined to favor
ably consider the proposition. lie has proven so
valuable an attache of the Michigan Central that
strenuous efforts will be made to retain him in
his present position. Mr. Mortin is one of the
most capable traffic men in Chicago, and
would fill the position well should Mr. Riploy
leave. He has had ten years' experience with
the nurllngton and for *eT<'ral years has ably
discharged the duties of first assistant general
freight agent. The matter will be decided with

OHIO AND INDIANA.
Bright Democratic Prospects in Both
these States.
[Special Telegram to the (.lobe. 1
Washington, Sept 1. — A prominent Ohio Re
publican, who arrived hero yesterday, says there
is no use trying to hide the fact that there is a
panic in Republican circles in Ohio, and that un
less the panic settles down the state is sure to
go Democratic In October. He says the thing
that is giving the Republicans of Ohio the great
est trouble is that the state committee has no
money to run the campaign and so far has been
unable to raUe any. He says the actual truth
is .that the committee has not enough
money to pay the postage on letters
and other matter it sends to the county and
district committee. The leaders of the party
have been appealed to, but havo not yet con
tributed anything. He Fays further that the
Republican press of that state, headed by Mnrat
nalstead, have in the past eight years said more
severe things against Blame than the Democratic
press. Under these circumstances, therefore,
be says, the people do not regard \he appeals
now made in the Republican papers in favor of
Blame as in earnest, and that if this
feeling does not soon change it will
be all up with Blame, for the
publican* will remain from the poll*. The
Republican collecting committee took in some
money last Saturday and bad their hopes very
much raised by the promise of more. While
the members do not give figures it is estimated
that as much as $300 wa« contributed.
Representative MatUon, of Indiana, is in tbe
city, and Is very confident of Democratic success
in Indiana, and thinks Cleveland will be elected.
He says the lowest Democratic estimate in Indi
ana is 10,000 majority.

Washington, Sept. I.— A gentleman from
New York jays of the Republican National com
mittee: "Not only i« there a lack of money,
but the management has been very bad. The
appointment of the Ancient Jones, of Pittsbnrg,
to be the chairman of the committee, has turned
out to be a miserable failure. He had but alight
acquaintance with the leading Republicans and I
doe* not understand his duties at all.
He was selected by Mr. Blame
because it was supposed that he would ;
give $100,000 to the campaign,- but it seems he
has done nothing of the kind. After making a
email gift equivalent to other members of the '
committee, it became necessary to raise $10,000 j
further, aud when Jones was appealed to he
coolly informed the committee that he woald let
them have tbe money on a well endorsed note. (
».t a day passes that prominent men are not
driven away from the Republican headquarters
from lack or any proper person to receive them.
There mmdi to be no head nor tail to the party

Minneapolis, Minn., Sept. I.— About 11

crble delay was occasioned in giving
the alarm, nnd when the department arrived
it was found that there was no water near at

to adjoining residences, which, being frame
buildings, caught tire readily. The residence
of Albee Smith, in the course of construc
tion, was burned to the ground. Loss $4,000,
probably insured. The residence of C. 11.
Pubois, which was vacant, was damaged
about $303, mid his barn ; about
$200, the residence of J. Brlgg?, the real

[Correspondence of the Cleveland (Ohio) Plain
Dealer. |
Editors Plain Dealer: The Republican
papers have labored to make It appear ■ that
because Blame occupied a chair in Garfleld'B
cabinet he was thereby necessarily bia friend
With your indulgence, Mr. Plain Dealer, I
propose to show that Blame was anything
but a friend. ' That bis conduct while acting
as secretary of state showed that he was not
only not a friend, but that be was a deadly
enemy. Men act from motives both good
and bad. President Garfield, in appointing
Blame to a seat in bis cabinet acted from the
purest of motives; he supposed him to he a
friend; but, as the sequel proved, Blaiue was
his personal and political enemy.
In the campaign of 1830 it was early dis
covered that without the electoral vote of the
state of New York the Republican ticket
would be defeated. To carry that state for
Garfleld was the grand central Idea of the
leaders of the Republican party. It was
acknowledged on all hands that no man
possessed a greater power over the people of
the empire state than the then Senator Conk
lint;- Ho* to scccre his services was the
question. He was smarting over the defeat
of hi* (Grant) presidential candidate and
felt like the boy who "Didn't care whether
school kept or not." What was to be done?
His eminent resources must be secured, Gar
field sent for Conkling to come to Mentor.
He came. An interview was had. Conkling
was gratified, for he left Mentor in excellent
spirits. He bad cured (as be then thought)
the boon be desired. He immediately com
menced stum pin? the state of New York,
and through his efforts the electoral vote was
carried for Garfleld.
Though there was no newspaper corres
pondent at this first interview at Mentor, it
was understood by the country that in tee
event of Garfield : s election. Mr. Conkling
was to have a voice in, if not control of, the
appointments in his own state. He was the
honored Senator of New York and had a ri^ht
to he consulted in reference to the New York
appointments. No man was more familiar
with this fact than James G. BUlne. That
was tbe promise President Garfleld made to
Conkling. It was to him on tbe ground of
right and for the farther reason that be
should take tbe stump for Use Republican
ticket. How well Senator Conkllng ful
filled bis promise is well known to the coun
try ; but - why the other side of tbe acrcc
ment wa« not carried out will »eem further
0n.' ... ■
• -It is : well known that President Garfleld ;
selected 4 his Cabinet at Mentor, previous to
his departure for Washinfton. From the
day of the election up to this time everything
was lovely. Gurflehl and ConkUng were as
happy as two clams. When it was announced
in the public prints that Elaine was to .be
Secretary of State Conkllng and his friends
heightened. Blame had antagonized him
all his life and was personally hostile. A
second trip to Mentor was } resolved, upon
and the Senator arrives at the modern
Mecca ,in -a terriflc- snow-storm.
This interview was a short one." He begs
that another name be submitted for Blalne,
but the request was denied htm. ; The Pres
ident remained firm to*, his original purpose,
at the same time reassuring the senator that
he would grant all his wishes In reference to
the.New York appointments. •": This promise
was made in good faith by the President-"
elect, and when made he "intended to carry
it out to the very letter; but as the seqntl
proved, there was i"a ■ power behind the
throne greater than the • throne itself."
Blame was the ruling spirit of the ' Cabinet
andGarfleld yielded to his Influence. Hence
the war that was waged among the leaders
of the Republican jj party at : Washington.
Every intelligent man knows that the shoot
tngofthe President was the anti-growth of
that war— a war inaugurated by the man
James G. Blame. "An uncalled for war, an
unnecessary war, gotten up entirely anil
solely to gratify an unholy ambition of the
man now asking the people to ; elevate him
to the Presidency. I repeat, therefore, what
I said at the comrnoncernqni, that Blame was
not a friend of . President Garfield but a
deadly enemy. The statements I have giv
en of Blame's secret history while in the
Cabinet are true and cannot be successfully
denied. Let the responsibility, therefore,
of the great crime of murdering the '. Presi
dent rest, where it rightfully belongs and let
the friends of the lamented Garfield reflect
and ' hesitate ere they cast tbeir vote for
James G. Blame. •«>'■

[narrishnrg Letter to Wairet, Pa., Ledger.]
Charles H. Bergner, Esq., was leaning
back hi a comfortable chair in his favorite
club in this city the other evening discussing
the political situation and surprised every
one by indicating that he is not inclined- to
vote for Blame. Mr. Bergncr !sa lawyer of
this city. His father was the postmaster for
many years, the public printer and editor
and publisher of the Hamburg Evening Tde
graph, the central party organ of the state.
Dying a few years ago, his son. succeeded to
the ownership of the paper and in 1576 was
its editor-in-chief. .':,."',''
Everybody wanted an explanation.
It is commonly believed," said Mr.
Bergner, "that Blnine was defeated for the
nomination in 1876 because be was obnox
ious to the Cameron ring. There is nothing
further from the truth and the only color for
the statement lies in the fact that Senator
Cameron was opposed to him. His defeat
was accomplished by a disclosure made by
William H. Kcmblc,who was a delegate from
the Fourth District, Philadelphia, and had uo
reference direct or indirect to the relations
between Senator Cameron and Mr. Blame.
"After the. sixth ballot had been com
pleted," continued Mr. Bergner. "it became
evident that the issue would bo decided on
the next. The Pennsylvania delegates had
been voting for John F. Rartnnft in obedi
ence to the resolutions of t!ie state conven
tion. In order that the state might make it
self felt in the succeeding ballot the <le!f~:i
--tkm withdrew for consultation. While they
were engaged thus the late Morton MeMieliael
and General Binirhum addressed themselves
earnestly to the delegate* ' in advo
cacy of voting for Blalne, At the conclusion
of Mr. Michael's remarks it wan evident a
deep impression had been t:ii*h\ Just as
the votes were about to be t:iken, Mr. Kem
ple arose. He asked thedelc|<*t»i so pun
in the matter, and gave hi 9 opinion that the
nomination of Biaino would bring defeat to
the party. He referred to file 'damaging
stories that would be told and to the doubt
ful record Mr. Blame had made during his
public life. He drew from his pocket "two
cancelled checks, and continued; I Mm
had any legitimate business transactions
with Mr. Biaiue. ..They are sipped by me,
made payable to his order and indorsed and
returned to me through the ordldnry chan
nels of such things. When Mr. Bl.iine was
speaker of the house of congress I was in
terested in some pending legislation. I
asked his assistance in away of a favorable
ruling. He agreed to rule as 1 asked for
$5,000. 1 paid him the. money with this
ebeek(ezhibntßg the $5,000 check), Subse
quently Blame came to me and demanded
§2,500 more, and I was obliged to yield and
make the second payment with this check,
(exhibiting the 22,500 check). Now, said Mr,
Kcmble, "I defy any man to say that I ever
had any other business, transaction \v!U>
Blatne, and I defy any man to dispute the
genuineness of this endorsement in Blatue's
handwriting. If he is nominated by this
convention 1 will give these facts to. the pub
lic, and his defeat is certain to follow. I have
no objection to a mini being bought, if he
will stay bought, but I protest against him
demanding the pay twice.' 1
"The effect of this speech was electrical,"
continued Mr. Bergner. "When Kem
ble sat down he handed the cancelled check
around among the delegates and they were
examined carefully, critically. I had them
in my baud and am satl Bed that they were
genuine. Immediately after the vote was
taken and Uie delegation decided to cast its
vote for Hay's. That vote decided the issue
against Biaiue.
