By the statute law of the state of New York ;
the resignation of a Governor must be made
to the Legislature. Tue new Legislature
convenes on the second Tuesday of January,
and soon after its organization it is expected
Governor Cleveland will send in his resigna- i
i tlon preparatory to visit Washington to take
jup bis residence there - for the next four
! years. Lieutenant Governor Hill will sue- j
; ceed to tin- Gubernatorial office and fill out I
the one year of the unexplred term of Gov.
Cleveland. Lieut. Gov. Hill, like Gov.
j Cleveland, is a bachelor. New York, there
• fore for the nonce, seems to be distinguished
by a sort of a "stag" state government.
The resignation of a Governor is a rare I
event in the history of the state. In 1829 j
Martin Van Buren resigned the Governorship
i to go into Gen. Jackson's cabinet as Secre
i tary of State. He was succeeded by Lieut, i
Gov. EtKH. T. Tnrnop. On the sudden j
; death of Gov. De Witt Clinton, In February, i
: 1828, Lieut. Gov. Nathaniel Pitcher sue- '
ceeded to the office. Lieut. Gov. John
Taylor succeeded Gov. Daniel D. Thornp

quence of having been elected Vice Presi
' dent of the United State*.

GENTILITY IX SIX.
Perhaps the most dnngcrous character in
festing society Is the showy, mercenary,
wholly unscrupulous and marrying adven
turer, whose wiles lure women to the loss of
their money when they have enongh to be
tempting, and to the miserable experiences
of such unions endintr in dlsgiaceful ex
posure and retributive helplessness when the
■Total befalls the woman. Newspapers chron
icle these lamentable cases from time to
time, just as tiu-v do the other confidence
games, anil it would seem as if the warning
was Bounded often enough for susceptible
people to be at least cautious. But presum
ably the fate that propels such episodes is
not to be balked of its prey, anil, on the
theory that those who are born to be drowned
will not be burned or hanged, it is quite as
likely that the unfortunates entered
for such grievous matrimonial
blunders, must s<»e them out.
It Ik the recorded opinion of the knowing in
such matters that the most adroit and heart
less adventurer, given to any number of
marriages when it suit* his turn — is the bold
Briton and the rakish, unprincipled Celt.
Occasionally an exceptional Frenchman may
be irregular, but he loves his own land too
well to encounter any iuvoluntary exile, and
its laws bold him taut to bis bargains good
and bad. In this country the laxity of the
marriage laws affords so many opportunities
for the designing and depraved that but lit
tle subterfuge is needed for the sensations
that arc too much of an old story to stir more
than a passing interest.
While public Bympathy and practical char
ity are well directed in relieving the dupes
of the adventurer's game they are rather
strained when the victims, like Barkis, "is
wilhn' " to accept the situation and condone
the treachery, with the added hope of re
union when the grim, severing sentence of
the law is fulfilled in the penitentiary.
The New Orleans Tima-Detnocr.it prints a
version of a recent bigamous episode in St.
Paul, which, in the language of Artemus
Ward, is thrilling enough for yellow covers.
The facts of the case are recent and need no
recapitulation, except to reiterate that the
deluding gentleman now serving a sentence
in Stillwater is an Irishman. and the lady bo
reaved of him pro MM one of '"high social
rank" ere while — the daughter of a Commo
dore and the niece of a Major General.
One might suppose tint her three mating
experiences, the first ending in a divorce,
the second ending in death, and the third
interrupted by the penitentiary, would prove
effective as instructive agencies, but the
lady with prayerful loyalty to her state's
prison bird "trusts God that we may be once
more united," calling him in every refer
ence through this interview with touching
fidelity if It Were not criminal abandon, "My
husband," totally disregarding tb« claim of
the wife, and ignoring the fact of any per

tory or workhouse but to the hospital to '

anguish of motherhood. Without any gulling
knowledge of life, or of the world such unfor- '
tunate beluga are easily snared aud carried ■
The abiding places of the poor "are not al-
I ways porticos of moral philosophy." Often
j times when there is no downright instinct to
J evil, there is no fixed principle to speak of,
and no trained and inherited resistance to it
either. There arc no "high 6oclai" influen
ces and considerations hedging them, and
once in the swift current of sin the high wall
separating them from the "respectable world

Death is the only reformer, silencing all

and perfumed in a way to interest our Chris- I
tian regard, in charitable public institutions i
or out of them. But after all the plain unvar- i
nished fact is that a "true woman of high '
social rank with a young babe" by a man
! who is another woman's lawful husband is
really not so deserving of sympathy as the '

one Wray, who jumped from a window,
sevcrly injuring himself, and re
mained unconscious for some
time. McGregor, although awake, must
have been suffocated, as he failed to escape.

Rev. S. S. Knott two, valued at $300: Sam

The barn contained fifty tons of
bay, 2,000 bushels of oats, two mowers and
a large quantity of harness, ropes, etc.
Gray's loss will be about $5,000. The resi
dence of John Wood, hear the barn, was also

CARROLL VS. CORKHILL.
A Divorce Suit Causes Gen. Carroll
to Threaten Guitoan's Prose
(Special Telegram to the Globe. \
Washington, Nov. 22. — The particulars of
a bitter quarrel between Maj. Gen. Sprigs
Carroll, who is on the retired list of the army,
and Col. George B. Curkhlll, who achieved
a national reputation through his connection
with the prosecution of GuiU-au, have just
come to light Corkhlll is counsel for Mrs.
Carroll, who has entered suit for divorce
against her husband. Carroll claims that
Corkblll has exceeded the bouuds of pro
priety by giving tbe case an unenviable pub
licity. A few evenings ago bo called
at Corkblll's room at Willard's hotel, en
tered and locked the door. Corkhili arose
and demand that the door be unlocked. Gen.
Carroll's only reply was to take two revolvers
from his pocket, and to tell C^rkhill to Ukc
his choice,' as he (Carroll) bad come to kill
him. Corkhili begged so hard tbat Carroll
finally decided not to shoot him. After some
hard words bad passed, but before he left
the room, he said:
"Corkuill, you take that pistol and wear it.
I wont kill you to-night, but I may make up
my mind to do It, and I want you to be fixed."
Later on Carroll met Corkhill in front of
the National theater. He had a slight
switch ' cane in his hand, and
before the astonished bystander*
could Interfere be ha 1 beaten the colonel
I about the face in a shocking manner. CorkuU
ran away to escape further castlgatlon. Gen.
Carroll's friends are apprehensive that he
will kill Corkhill the next time they meet.
Thirty-five cars of cattle will arrive to-day
over the Northern Pacific road. This is the
last shipment of the season. These cattle
belong to two parties, Messrs. Hasklns &

transported to the east this year 4,000 cars
of cattle, which Is equal in number to 80.
--000 head. Of young cattle shipped to Mon
tana, 92,819 have been sent across the
prairies to the grazing fields. This road baa
shipped. l 2.333 bead for one company, and
of all that number only one was lost by acci
dent, and that was at Fargo, where one steer
slipped and broke bis l^tr, rendering it nec
essary to shoot him. Of all the stock that
has been bandied on the road there ha* been
but three accidents -to • the animals, and of
all the 2.500 cars of young stock sent west,
not an accident has occurred to any of the
animals. If there is another road in the
United States that can show such a record as
this we would like to hear the name of it.
A heavy gale passed through the southern

The blander* In statements about notable
people and fact* are ratajr inexcusable when
they are of "oar own time.
" We read In" a big important newspaper,
1 which nnzbt to know better, some gossip
. concerning the wife of Charles Sumner,

| was the Widow Hooper, tbe sturdy and moo- i

gossip sail sbe forfeited a handsome fortune
<to become Mr.*. Charles Samner. The saw* i
I sapient article tells us tbat Mrs. "Mason"
did not belong to the circle of Boston society
to which Mr. Samner bat! the entree.
This Is true to the extent that In what
| Boston formerly regarded as it* best society
Mr. Sdmnrr bad no footing whatever, more, |
however, on account of his anti-slavery prin- ,
ciples than from tbe bum ble origin of hi*

lii'lit of a mesalliance by the solemn snobs in |

had been intimates of old. You may read
of them, interpolate* Phillips, in Macready's

night, after the performance. After Sumner
joined the anti-slavery party Fclton never
spoke to him for years. On this occasion

At twenty minute* to 11 o'clock last eveu
-1 ing an alarm was teat in on box 23 caused
' by fire in the John Warm four story brick
' block, between the Manitoba office building,
on the corner of Fourth and Wacuota street* |
and DeCoster & Clark's block, occupied by t
Strong, Ilackett A Co., wholesale dealers In
hardware, on the west.
The burned building was oc- |
cupied by Eugene F. O«borne heat- j
• ing and ventiliting machinery and
manufactory and Herman Winter's saloon.
The fir* started in the boiler room in
i the rear of the basement, and in an almost
Incredible space of time swept up through
the rear stories to tin* roof, breaking out
near a tall boiler boiler iron smoke stack ou
the outside of the structure.
At ten minutes to eleven o'clock there
was a fearful volume of flame ,
ascending into the air from the roof I
j which blown in great sheets by a furious gale
| of wind almost reached across Fourth street,
and it was the opinion of all present that not
only the whole block between Slbley and
Waco it a streets must burn, but also the
Sherman house and blocks on the south side
of Fourth street.
At 11 o'clock one of the most fearful and
threatening scenes lately witnessed in this
city ensued when the fire
which had been well kept down In the
rear by several streams, burst out into Fourth
. street In a torrent of flame which seemed to
j be fanned from behind by a thousand furies.
j At this point the extension ladder of No. 2
• was burned off like a reed and the bottom
. portion saved by throwing it over upon the
block on the other side of the street. it being
curled up by the heat like a serpent.
But a general alarm bad been sent in and
just about this time, when a great conflagra
tion for lower town seemed inevitable, aud
ibere^was great hopes expressed by bystand
ers that Minneapolis had been sent to for
help, the open assertion being made on
every hand that no fire force
in St. Paul could bold down the
dry fiend licking everything up
before it by thorough coolness and systematic
work the department poured a deluge of
water In upon the flames from front and rear
in exactly the right spot, and the monster
began slowly and sullenly to yield, while
at the same time thoroughly guarded the
Manitoba and DeCoster A Clark's structure
irom being fired on the roof.
The strong fire mill of both the adjoining
structures held out well, and
the late fall of snow upon
the roofs of these buildings, of course,
materially aided tile firemen, title the latter,
such was the perfect hurricane of burning
brands and sparks, saved all the property be
tween Fourth and Third streets.
THE WOKE OF TUB DKI*IKTME>'r.
It was the verdict of quite a large
number of prominent citizen*
who watched the progress 'of
the fire that it was bandied in a vigorous and
most efficient manner. To begin with the
wind was blowing a gale and the drift of tin
snow was almost blinding. When the Ore
was first discovered an alarm was turned in
from box No. 23. About the same time
another alarm was turned in from box N".'J4,
tbe effect being to cut the circuit and the
Cong turned in box No. 13 at Seven corner*.
Chief Black drove half way up to the latter
location before the mistake was discovered.
On reaching the scene of the fire Cuief Black
saw that a destructive conflagration was im
.nine and he at once ordered a general
, This brought out the entire department; and
the work of lighting the flames commenced
in real earnest. The brave and persistent
manner In which the fire was fought and
finally confined to the building where it
started, is deserving of the high
est encomiums. For the first twenty
minutes or half hour after it had
started the entire block looked as if it were
■loomed, while the windows of the wholesale
bouses across the way and nearly a bock
distant were beard to crack under the pres
At this time the pyrotechnic display, was
one of great splendor. Dense volumes of
smoke rose fr m the building,
and sparks were thrown skyward
as If from a furnace. Now and then a
column of smoke and sparks would be caught
in a descending eddy and showered on tho
housetops and streets below, the effect being
Several members of the fire department
covered themselves with glory by their
bravery. Among these were Chief Black,
who distinguished himself by his
nerve and coolness, Assistant Chief Jackson
and several others whose names were not as
certained. About twenty minutes past 11
o'clock the flames seemed to defy the efforts
of the department and with the strong gale
blowing, it seemed as though the entire block
was to succumb.
At this Juncture a ladder was run up to
the roof and a couple of brave firemeu as
cended to the top of the building in safety.
They bad scarcely reached the cornice ere
the fire gained renewed energy and for a
moment the top of the building was
enveloped In a blinding mass of smoke and
hissing flames. A cry went up from the
crowd, and loud yells were made for the fire
men to come down. To make the situation
more critical the top of the ladder took lire,
and by this time one -•. of
the men bad started to descend.
It was feared that he would be sufikated,
hut a force of men seized the extension
truck and ran it across the street. Tue lad
der with the pendant man swung over and
he reached the street just as the top of the
ladder burned and fell off.

The building was constructed by John
Warm in I*Bl, at a cost of about $20,000.
It was built of brick and was four stories :
high with a basement It was fully two
thirds insured. The loss on the building is
total, with the exception perhaps ol a salvage
| on the walls which may be reconstructed.
The insurance on the building is $15,000,
of which 10,000 is placed by the St.-Paul
Fire and Marine agency as follows: »>„,,;
St. Paul Firs and Marine $2,500
Connecticut, of Hartford 2,500
National, of Hartford 5,000
Besides the above there is an additional
$5,000 placed in otaer companies.
Mr. Warm also has an
insurance of $10,000 on
the building adjolming, the one occupied by
Osborne A Co., formerly occupied by D. L.

A peculiar incident in connection with the

policies in that direction.

The stock of machinery and supplies car
ried by Osborne A Co. is roughly estimated
to have been worth from $35,000 to $40,000. .
Their loss Is almost total,' an " Use stock was

$10,000 was placed as follows:

This Insurance was divided, $7,030 being
on stock, $2,500 on machinery, and
$500 on furniture and fixtures.
In addition to the above, as mentioned, ;
there was $10,000 insurance placed with
Several employes of the firm of.Osborne &

and instruments. Among these was

The loss of Mr. Eugene Winter, the saloon
keeper, is various. y estimated at from $000
to $6,000, on which there was an insurance
of half the amount.
The origin of the fire is purely a matter of j
conjecture, the most plausible theory being ,
that it caught from combustion of rubbisa in
the basement. This theory is probable from ■
the fact that it is understood tiiat Osoorue A j
Co. had a large quantity of oil stored in the
WE ESCAPED THIS TUCK.
8. S. Eaton, the well known insurance
man, was on the ground early and was con
siderably elated with the idea that he had no
insurance on the property destroy -d. He
was a good deal excited in regard to the St.
Paul A Manitoba block, which adjoined the
burning building and which stood next east j
of the same. The Barnes were curling all j
around it and it looked as
though the Manitoba block must go sure. So
fully Impressed weie people with this idea \
that those in the building began throwing
the fiesks out of the windows of Mr. Wake
man's room in the second story, on the cor- I
ncr of Fourth and Wacouta streets. They
come down and struck the sidewalk with a
crash, and the spectators supposed at first !
that tb<* cornice aud a part of the wall had
fallen. The consequeucc was that there i
was a general stampede. Two desks were
pitched out when :aat business was stopped.
When the desks struck ihe walk they were
smashed into spliulers and the papers lew
in every direction. They were gathered up, j
however, and probably few of them were lost.
One of the chemical engines was backed up j
to the door uf the Manitoba building, |
on the Wacowta street side ana
the hosf was run up through the whole
building so as to be ready tor service at any
point. It was not required, however, as the
good judgment of Mr. J. J. Hill, the presi
dent of the road, exhibited in Its construc
lion, undoubtedly *aved it from destruction, '
lv a conversation With Mr. Hit., he said that
be bad anticipated just such an
emergency as occurred last night,
and had guarded agaiust the
same by having a thirty inch wu.l put in be
tween t..e two buildings. Tula Is beyond all
question what saved the St. Paui A: Manitoba
Headquarters last night. Che wall scarcely
felt warm oc tue Inside at any time during
the tire. Tnere is another poiut in regard
to this building to winch we desire to call
the attention of all who construct sack
blocks. The cornice of the
Manitoba block took fire and all
w.io »aw the cornice burning supposed the
fire would, as a natural consequence, work
Its way iulo the building, and inauy ex
pected to see the building go in consequence
of the cornice. Iv this they were mistaken
for Mr. Hill had anticipated this. Though
there was an iron cornice backed with wood,
back of this was a two foot brick
wall and the wood did not run
through the wall so as to communicate with
the inside. The- woodwork backing all
burned out, and a.* a consequence did not
communicate with the Inside of the building.
Mr. Hill and Mr. Manvel were both on the
ground and looked after the property in the
M. Paul & Manitoba headquarters building.
Mr. Hill said, wben tbut building was
put up I put in a thirty inch brick
wail for just such ac occasion us this. The
fire can't get through. It's all right. A* to
the cornice let bum. That can't do any
barm. There Is a two foot brick wall back
of it, and none of the wood work runs
through to the inside. It's all outside filagree
work. Let it burn, and it did burn, but it
did ■ not get inside. If all builders
will follow Mr. Hill's plan and put up a heavy
partition wall and put on toe eomtec M
that it will not communicate with the Inside,
the safety of buildings will be very greatly in
At 12 o'clock the fire was completely under
control and while bad enough it might have,
been much more disastrous.
S^me delay was occasioned in the work of
the department by the bursting of a portion
of old hose, the saute, in fuel, that Chief
Black alluded to as use lees at the last meet
ing of the tire board.
The building occupied by Strong, Hackett
& Co., is owned by De Caster & Clark, and
the damage here was only nominal.

v THE SHORT SESSION.
Some of the Important Measures to be
Considered by Congress this
[Special Telegram to the Glebe. |
■Washington, Nov. 22. — The next session
of congress will begtn on Monday, Dec. .1,
bat after deducting the two weeks usually
appropriated for the Christmas recess and
the ". Sundays, there will remain
only about seventy-fire working
days. Of these days the regular
annual appropriation bills will consume a
large portion, and though there is not now
the same inducement to make buncombe
speeches as in the past session, it is fair to
assume that some time will be wasted In
partisan crimination and recrimination.
There will thus be comparatively little
time for measures outside of the appropria
The house has passed and sent to the
senate divers measures intended to secure
the rights of the people as against great cor
porations—bills to declare forfeited certain
land grants, a bill to compel the payment
of the cost of surveying, selecting and
conveying lands granted to aid the Pacific
railroad and a bill to amend the Thurman
act and provide for the settlement of the ac
counts of the Pacific railroad with the gov
ernment, As the senate declined to "pass
these bills with the motive of a presidential
contest pending, the Republicans are not
likely to let them go through
now. The house bill to retire and receive
the trade dollar may perhaps receive favora
ble consideration. The senate has passed a
bill to provide for the accommodation of the
library, which is made a special order of the
house. Its fate is uncertain. There
is a bill to provide for
the construction of additional vessels for
the navy. It is not unlikely that the house
of representatives may agree to a guarded
but liberal measure, provided the new ad
ministration ami not Mr. Chandler is to
carry out the appropriation. The Blair bill
to provide for the estihlishmeut of a tempo
rary support for the common schools has
a good chance to pass. There is also a chance
for the senate bill or some similar measure
to establish a uniform system of bankruptcy.
A bill to provide for the performance of the
duties of the office of president in case of the
death, removal, resignation or inability of
the president and rice president will be apt
to receive early consideration. Other sen
ate bills there will hardly be time to con
The house of representatives will go on, if
there be time to complete its action of last

forfeited land grants. It is not likely thai
there will be any bills for the admis
sion of Dakota or other ter
ritories passed at this session.
Dakota and * Washington Territories
will be brought in under a Democratic ad
ministration. There will be an effort to
pass Hewitt's bill to carry out the Mexican
reciprocity treaty, but since Mexico is giving
the same privileges to other countries as to
the United States, the opposition to the bill
will be much stronger, and it may prevail,
despite the lobbying of the state department
and the railroads.
On the important subject of the reduction
of the present surplus in the treasury it ig
difficult to make a positive prediction. Both
parties are. pledged by their platforms to a

so great that it is not likely
Uatnny bill modifying the tariff or internal
revenue will be • passed. Mr. Arthur will
probably repeat his recommendation to re

Secretary MeCulloch's views, but il

a general tariff bill. There is
no time for carrying out the scientific views
.of the doctrines, and even at the long ses
