Rkithi.ican prluts are thrown into an cc
etacj of excitement because Mr. Follett of
Ohio, has made a move to abolish the Re
publican machinery of election supervisors ■
and United slates Marshals with bull-dog '
pistols. Since the introduction of this species i
of machinery its usefulness to the Republi- >
can party has never bad a more striking il- ,
lustration than at Cincinnati last October, j
when that pestilent scab, Ben Buttcrworth
was elected to Congress by the gang of Mar- ■
shuls and their bull-dogs. An effort was
made in 1878 to repeal this partisan outrage
upon the public, bat the Republican Senate j
would nut permit it. That body will not now
interpose to keep the measure upon the stat- '
ute book*. The Republicans will appoint no j
more Marshal? The. foul bM Ebould be) j
wiped out. The party soon to be in power
will have no occasion for the dirty work the
law was framed to execute and has performed j
to the disgust of till honest men.
There Is a very general feeling of indig
nation un<l disgust over the prize fight irrup
tion which has broken out of late in St. Paul
and Minneapolis. Decency is further out
raged by the Sabbath being selected for these
brutal exhibitions. Unfortunately the laws
of Minnesota do not allow the sending of
these "hard hitters" to the penitentiary, and
as long as disreputable newspapers pander
to the depraved classes of society by print
ing elaborate reports of these brutalities,
they will be likely to be continued. It is
natural to look for euch things in the Planter
Press, for it is in keeping with the character
of the sheet taut has undertaken to tk elevate
the standard of criticism," since it
has lost the patronage and free tickets of
the Opera house. We could not expect
anything better, cither, of the Minneapolis
Tribune under Deacon Ncttleton's manage
ment, as he was at one tim • too good
to print a Sunday paper, but we had buped
lor better things under the new Bostouese
management. In this we were sadly disap
pointed, as the Tribune yesterday joined the
P. P. in a long report of Sunday's brutality.
The subscribers to these immoral sheets
should apply a remedy which will at least
stop the printing of these reports. The
withdrawal of a little patronage might "ele
vate the standard some more.
THE I'LAtll -/•; IX VIIIGtXIA ASH
The value of pure and wholesome water
has never been duly and fully appreciated by
the general public. Disease and death have
cififii resulted from the use of impure water,
without the victims, or their friends or phy
sicians suspecting the cause. The mysteri
ous disease that has been devastating the
mountain regions of Kentucky and Virginia
is now attributed to the use of poisonous
water. Tiie disease Is a fatal form of flux,
resembling cholera, somewhat, and is vio
lent aud uncontrollable in its attacks. What
is very remarkable about it is, that it is con
tagious. When it eaten a family, it is sure
to take ever}' in. tuber of it, and whole fami
lies have been swept off by it.
It prevail« in n.any of the mouutaln
counties of the states referred to. Invaria
bly it is most wide-spread near the highest
mount. i.;-, and by 'he mounUin streams
whose waters are used by the inhabitants for
family purposes. The diyeaso extends over
a territory of about sevt nty miles wide by
eighty miles long. Tbe victims are seized
with griping pains, followed by a bloody and
weakening; dlarrbaea and in a few hours
proves fatal. It is accompanied by intense
thirst iadicatiug mineral poisoning as the
cause of the epidemic.
A correspondent who has visited the In
fected district, writes that it Is a well-known
fact that the streams along which the disease
prevails !ind their beginning In the moun
tains among rocks containing alkali, arson
ites, find other poisonous minerals. Until
recently, no rain has fallen for many weeks,
and the streams had nearly dried up. The
water remaining, and which the people were
forced to use was powerfully charged with
these poisonous substances, and the contin
ued use of it resulted in the epidemic.
Dr. J. BJ llubbcli,who was sent to the infec
ted district to investigate aud re port, stales that
nothing definite is known as to the extent of
the epidemic, but all information shows that it
is quite extensive and fatal. All attribute the
disease to poisonous water. Of this the Doc
tor will make such chemical examination as
opportunities permit, and send out samples
for careful analysis.
A FOIITUXATB KSU4PE.
The late head of the Republican ticket, as
an expectaut, hopeful candidate, and the
same person M ■■- defeated, exasperated can
didate uttered sentiments in regard to tbe
South in violent antagonism to each other.
In his letter of acceptance and in his stumo
speeches, this person wrote and spoke favor
ably, hopefully, kindly of tin South. In his
after election, Augusta serenade speech with
surprising virosity be denounced the South
as disloyal and opposed to everything just
and loyal. In July, the hopeful man, speak
in gof the South said: "Prejudices have
yielded aud are yielding,, while a . growing
cordialicy warms the Southern and Northern
heart alike." Declaring that the feeling be
tween the sections '"is better now," than for
the tone jem prior to Mr Lincoln's elec
tion, the expectant man said: 'The South
ern commonwealths are learning to vindicate
civil rights and are adapting themselves to
the conditions of political tranquillty and in
dustrial progress. If there be occasional and
violent outbreaks in the South against this
peaceful progress, the public opinion of the
country regard them as exceptional, and
hopefully tracts that each will be the last."
la the AugustA utterance this hopeful,
charitable view of the South was strangely
and violently antagonized, and instead of ad
mitting and continuing to say that "occas
ional tad violent outbursts at the South,"
arc only "exceptional"' the South is de
; nounced as all wrong in its modes, senti
ments and purposes, and is arraigned as in
a position menacing to the government and
its institutions. In the Augusta speech the
defeated candidate in bitter, railing sentences

Dr. Rauch, Secretary of the Illinois State
Board of Health in a report 6ays "that it inuy
be entirely true that, if all our food-supplies
were wholesome, and our water-supplies not
only unpolluted but unpollutable; if sewigc
and refuse disposal were prompt and com
plete; if our cities, towns aud villages were
all models of sanitary perfection, and their
inhabitants free from predisposition or sus
ceptibility, acquired or inherited; in short,
if there were no ignorance, nor poverty, nor
tilth, Lorinannity in the land, we ini.'ht dis

tion of affairs, concludes that i; 1* non sense

nently quarantinable disease, so far as ibis
country is concerned, claiming that no
single MM has ever succeeded in establish

repeated Importations have always occurred
before it has effected a lodumenL
A national health organization is a neces
sity to carry out ■ useful pys'.em of quaran
tine, and Dr. Kuuch thinks that .the mem
bership of the National Board of Health
"should be enlarged so as to more perfectly
represent the natural sanitarj areas, and its
members should be familiar not alone with
the sanitary features of their respective dis
tricts, but equally they should be identified
with the commercial, business, and indus
trial interests." Sooner or later the national
government will be compelled not only to as
sume supervision of exterior quarantines,
but to provide for a permanent system of co
operation with SUte and local governments
in the administration of inter- sanita
tion, in order, on the one hand, to prevent
the introduction of exotic epidemic diseases,
and on the other, to prevent their spread
from state to state along the great intra-na
tlonal highways of travel and commerce.
This is a national duty. It is one that the
national government only can adequately
discharge, and its expense is, equitably, one
which should be defrayed from the national

To the Editor of the Globe.
St. Paul, Dee. 8. — As everybody has had
a whack .it the Street Railway company I will
take tbis opportunity of finding a little fault
In the way the present system is run. I
wish to make a few KUt:^e»Uo:.s as to the
proper way to ran a street railway, for as I
have never bceii connected In any way with
Mil b a corporation, of course, I know more
about the way that thing* ought to be run
than the manager who has spent his life in
In tbe first place, whenever I want to
catch a car, to go any where, the car I want
U always just past and out of hearing.
Then I have to wait for the next car, which
is always late. Wiitu it does come in sight
and I manage to make the driver see me
and undrmaud that I will pay my fare,
notwithstanding my appearance, then I find
that the car is full as a police
man on election day. Then somebody
always look* at me with a want-to-be-lunny
smile and says: "Always room for one
more." Thi-n a bis: six foot, two hundred
and fat man gets on and insists on squeez
ing himself into the car when there isn't
room fur a consumptive broom stick.
I arrive at :',}£ avenue southeast and ring
the bell just be! ore we reach the crossing, so
as to give the drvlcr plenty of time to stop;
but ho don't need much time, or else he is
afraid I won't get my feet wet, so he stops
right in the muddiest place be can find,
about six las* from the crossing. Why does
be do this! Is it an infirmity inherited from
bit aurcstore! or does be get it from long
association with those who always precede
him — bis mules! If I&min 1 hurry be stops
every block to let rome one on or off. bat If
I cateb sight of a pretty girl on the sidewalk
that I want to look at, be drives like be was
troing to a fire. If I do get a seat in
a car 6osie lady is sure to
come in and then I have to give it up to her,
for no one else will do it.
And speaking of street cars and ladles, it
secma to me that tbe gentlemen, or men,
'.viio patronize the St. Anthony Hill car*, are
the most nngentiemanly crowd I ever gut
into. They will often let a lady stand up for
blocks, just because they are tired 1 They
must be very tired, indeed, when they forget
to be gentlemen. Would any of them If
their mother, or sister, stand up while they
sit down ! From what I bare seen of them,
I believe they would.
And now I want to make another sugges
tion to the Street Railway company, and it is
this: Cars on the St. Anthony Hill Hue. on
which I reside, ought to be run every half
minute during the hours that I go to my
meals, and no one to be allowed to stop the
car that I ride in. Fast borces should also be
used. To be sure, all this would be
a great expense to the company,
with no compensation for the extra
expenditure, but then, you know, the street
cars arc run fur public benefit and not as a
source of profit to the owners of the line.
At least I should judge so by what I have
read and beard. Why don't we hear from
tee P. P. on this subject? It seems to me
that they ought to bllng a little mud in the
direction of the Street Railway company, or
have they passes over the line!
To the Editor of the Globe:
In last Friday's issue of your piper it was
said the contractors for the grading of Oak
dale avenue had not paid their men for the
hut six weeks, and that they had refused,
and still refused to give them their lime or
certify to it. ■ That statement is all false and
wbofver you got it from either did it
m&Mcously or be cannot tell the truth.
The facts are that the men were paid every
Saturday, with one exception, for the past
six weeks, and the contractors gave them
their time and never refused to certify to It,
except when they demanded more than they
worked. It is true that there is a balance
due time, but it is also true that there is
plenty of money in the city's possession
to the credit of the contractor to
more than pay all claims and
finish the contract. The contractor paid out
nearly three thousand dollars to the men in
the last five weeks, not one dollar of the
amount coming from the city. If the city
will bold euorgh to finish the contract and
pay the balance to the men no one will suf
fer, and the contractor will be satisfied.
J. W. Sunns, Contractor,
, per M. B. Fakkell.
[Messrs. Smythe & Fam-11 are presuming
a good deal in puttinz forth the above de
nial as a statement of the ''truth." Any one
who chanced .to visit the c faces of the city
comptroller and treasurer Saturday and yes
terday would have found a great throng of
laborers who would verify all the statements
published by the Globe. The publication
probably bad a salutary effect in stirring up
the contractors, as the comptroller and
I treasure have devoted the last two days to
helping out the laborers by paying off a por
tion of what is due them. If contractors
wuulJ pay their men city oSkers might find
more time to attend to the legitimate duties
of their offices. All other public butiness
Iw ad 1 pay their men been practically sus
more time to attend to the legitimate duties

in these offices has been practlct'ly sus

A BIG SCHEME.

Hon. W. F. >t«!e. ■
Hon. W. F. Steele, of Steele, D. T., is inH
be city, laying the wire* fur the appointment
>f a joint committee of the legislatures ofH
Dakota and Minnesota on a proposition toH
crurc a uniform ending of wheat in theH
merest* of the producers, and to secure M

he especial champion of the producing In-H
In conversation with Mr. Steele last even-
D* he said that he believed the territorial H
e^UUture, of which be u» a member, would H
pass a bill this winter identifying the grades I
)f wheat in such a manner as to cstablbhH
he qualities beyond peradrentnre. HcH
bought a commission would be appointed H
jo protect the Interests of the growers andH
producers, and he also expressed H
.be hope that the Miuuesota
legislature would provide for a similar cooi
mission, in which event the needed protec-H
ion would U- given to both the producers of I
this state aud Dakota. This, be thought. I
ftuuld effectually setUe the matter and at thsH
iamft time guard a most important interest. H
riic duties of the commissions should beH
:le*rly outlined and heavy penalties would H
be provided for breach of trust. H
Fbe proposed commission would stamp outH

the producers would De compelled ; > look I
DuUide of her borders for their markets and H
in this connection Mr. Steele was emphatic
in saying thut they would not look in vain.
In conclusion he mM that, if the scheme as
outlined was consummated, the wheat grow

the markets without going to Dulutb, and lie

The Advance of Two Worthy Army
Officers Made the Occasion of
The recent war department orders retiring
from active service Captain F. A. Kendall,
Twenty-fifth Infantry, "on account of dis
ability Incident to the service," entails the
! promotion of First Lieutenant Washington
I. Sanborn to the captaincy of company •Hi.'
and of Second Lieutenant Edwin F. Glenn
I to the first lieutenantcy of company '"B'' of
that regiment. The two officers last men
tioned are now stationed at Fort . Bnelllng,
! where Lieutenant Glenn will remain — his
> new company forming a part of the
: garrison of that post. Captain San born 's
1 company is now stationed at Fort SUseton,
Dakota, whither the captain will remove -as
soon as the necessary orders shall have been
issued. Captain San born - and Lieutenant
Glenn rejoice in the possession of a host of
friends in St. Paul and Minneapolis who
will be delighted to learn of the good fortune
of each, while they, and our society people in
general, will regret the fact that Captain
Sin bom's promotion will necessitate bis re
moval to a distant station.
To mark the event, and to emphasize the
esteem in which these two gentlemen are
held by their brother officers, a complimen
tary dinner waa tendered them at Fort ell
ing Suuday evening. The affair was one of
the most recherche and enjoyable which ha*
taken place this «pa<nß. Among the army
officers present were uctictd Colonel* Gentry,
Bcntzonl and Lawson, Major Smith, Captain
San born, Lieutenants Wilson, Tully, An
drews, Glenn, Biddle of the engineer* corps,
Ahem and Tear, who, together with Messrs.
Bootes and Scbenck, of the quartermaster's
department, seated themselves to a repast
which, in its elaborateness and completeness
of detail would have done credit to a Del
monico—twelve courses being served, with
wines of a superior vintage in profusion.
Tue occasion was a very happy one, and
Col. Bentxoni in a neat speech took advan
tage of it to dilate at some length and in a
most complimentary manner upon the uni
form gentlemanly characteristics and general
efficiency whica h»v«. • marked tar deport
ment of Lieutenant* Sanborn and G.enn in
all their private and official intercourse with
the speakers, whose good opinion of Lieut.
San born was cemented by a personal experi
ence and association with him of seven
years; ant! he expressed the conviction
that the advance In military rank and posi
tion which their promotion entails, trill Sul
both gentleman awake to the responsibilities
which that promotion carries with it, and
their lives henceforth will continue to be
marked by an adherence to the exalted sense
of faithfulness and integrity which has tvsr

The first of the famous serifs of "Stod
dard Lectures" was given at the Grand Opera
hous? last night. The audience was large,but
nut nearly so numerous as tbe merits of tbeen
tcrisiument deserved. The Gj/mse exag
gerates nothing in faying that the Stoddard j
lectures are the most enjoyable and -•.rue
tive euterUinments which have ever been
presented to a St. I\uil audience.
The opening lecture of the present
scries was entitled '.'Versailles *^d
Marie Antoinette.'! Tbe lecturer briefly
recounted the Ui?<olute reign* of Louis XiV
and Louis XV. depicting in graphic lan- !
guage the deplnrafclo condition nf tfc-.« French j
peasantry during that terrible era. One j
third of tbu country belonged to the peo- j
pie, and tat* other two thirds to the church
and nob!!:!y, the two tl!rds being culirviy
exempt from taxation. The almost count
less luUliuns squandered l>y those unprinci
pled era] i ran was wrung from the poor peo
ple, who j*»?v-?£?v2 Vut one tLirvi of the goil
■nl they wi rf uttvriy destroyed by the bur
i»-n heaped upor. ijcra. Want
31.1 artual starvation filled the land
when th» youcg kitjg, Louis XIV, and his
beautiful young wife, Marie Antoinette,
ascended the throne. Thoagb the reign
t>f Louis XVI. was not marked by the pro3l
;acv and debauchery of his predecessors, he
uid the penally for the sins of his predeces
sors, and the people, like a do* D trodden
Burin, finally turned against royalty with a i
terrible venseancp. ;
All of this is told in the choico&t of lan- :
guage, delivered 11 a style nearly faultless,
»nd every step is illustrated by pictures thrown
upon a canvass with such real appearance
hat the listener almost imagines that he is
absolutely in France, wandering through the
rorgeous palaces, inspecting the horrible
bastile, promenading in the parks, admiring
Lhe statuary, minelinz with the peasantry,
viewing Hi.- revolt, etc. It is an entertain
ment that can hardly be described, for it is
uf itself an illustrated description of one of
Lhe most notable eras the world has ever
To-Dlgbt the subject is "Paris in the Reign .
i>f Terror." This is a continuation of last
night's lecture but will be*excecdiugly enter

during tlfat terrible era.
The H't/H'ir Stwlrnt.
The first production of the Beggar Student
— three act comic opera, by Millocker, will
Lake place at the Grand Opera house on
Thursday evening. The open has met with
phrnomonal success throughout the cast,

The Thompson Opera company, will present
Lhe opera here, and comes highly endorsed
•very where they have played. Mr. W.W.
Thompson, the manager, is from Australia,

ter last night Manager Hilton went into the
)ropcrty room and resurrected the hitherto :
neglected sign, "Standing room only," and
ill who came after that hour were compelled
to take their chances on seeing the show
from the extreme end of the lobby. The at

•aid-headed men were on hand early, as was
evidenced from the fact that a seat in the
ront rows, or anywhere else for that matter,
:ou!d not have been had for love or money.
It was a curious audience, mads up, as it
was, of old stagers, young-old men, who

ack of. hirsute adornment showed that

bat was bent on having the worth of its

As for the show, it was something that
ijrrecably disappointed in botb it 3 novelty

nightly on the variety stages of lb« country.

Tbe piano solo by Miss Lceter was good, and
Hiss Townsend won tae favor of the audi
ence by her song; Miss Nelson won goiden

by storm, but one of the neatest acts was
Lhat of little Alice Clay, who performed on
the invisible wire. Miss North In her midget

structure has never appeared and after bold

Crooked Distillers Arrested.
Lot;i3V!iXE, Ky., Dec. 8. — T. J. Miller and
G. W. MusUxlan, proprietors of- the Coon
Hollow distillery, Nelson county, were
arrested to-day by revenue officers charged
with gaining access to a government ware
house in the absence of the proper authori
ties and removing whisky on which the tai
was not paid. The Coon Hollow distillery
was burned about a month ago, with a large
quantity of whisky. Before the burn the
revenue officer began investigating alleged
crooked work, which resulted in the above
arrest. Miller and Mustodan are both
wealthy, and the arrest caused a sensation in
Nelson county and here when brought for
trial. It is now thought the distillery was
set on lire and sensational developments are
expected. The whisky burned was valued at
