THE GLOBE 4AXUAL REVIEW.
Every year since Its existence the Globe
has Issued, on the Slst of December, an an
nual review of the trade, growth and progress '
of St. Paul for the year just closing. These re-
Views have had feeble imitators but no rivals,
and the only hampering has been the lack
of mechanical facilities to meet the popular
demand for extra copies of the publication.
During the past year the mechan
ical facilities of the Glob* have
been made superior to those of any other
pap.-r west of Chicago, and a magnificent
new building, erected expressly for the
Globe, which will be occupied before this
publication, will make the Globe equipped
equal to any paper in the United States, and
at an expense only indulged in by the lead
ing and most thoroughly established Journals
of the country.
The great advancement of the Globe in
1884, which places it upon such a magnifi
cent footing, is simply commensurate with
the great advancement of St. Paul, and an
effort will be made to furnish an annual re
view of which every ( citizen can be proud.
The size of the edition, both in number of
copies printed and in the number of pages
used, depends entirely upon the de
mands of the business public. The Globe
can meet any demands upon its space that
can be made, but in preparing for so great
an edition as is sure to be made, some time
must be allowed for arrangement, and those
■who would secure choice locations for their
advertising announcements should apply
early. The first applicants can, of course,

It is announced that the revised translation
of the Old Testament Scriptures will soon be
issued. It is five hundred years since the
death of John Wycliffe who translated the
Bible into English. Prior to his time, the
whole Bible had not been translated into
English, but only detached portions of it. It
is, therefore, a fact that the true English
Bible began with Wveliffe.
The New York Times a few days since had
the proposed Spanish- American treaty trans

vice, at the cost of $6,416. This shows the
costliness of enterprise and the ambition to

afternoon, inveighed somewhat against cer- i
tain things that belong to the customs of the \
country and are common in all sections, such I
as the running of street cars, the issuing of !
Sunday morning papers and the like. While"
upon the topic the good man might have
done this community a service had he re
buked the wicked Pioneer Press, whose chief
proprietor is a member of the church in which
the. EvMi-.g.list was speaking, for sending out
It* tired and "overworked reporters last Sun

issue a prize fight- which occurred in lle-n"- j
nepin county. ..This was an omission that 1
was noticed and commented on by m&pv in I
the audience, and should the subject be re-
curred to " again It is presumed tbe matter
will not be overlooked.
Appropos of Mr. Moody 's visit to St. Paul i
may be mentioned tbe holding of one of bis
Series of conventions of Christian Workers at
Elmira, N. Y. recently. The large audience
room of Rev. Thos. K. Beccber's church was '
crowded. Many clergymen and others from ,
surrounding towns were present Tbe ad- |
dresses were listened to with earnest attention '
by all classes. When Mr. Moody learned that
the Y. M . C. A. of Elmira occupied rented
rooms, be set himself to work to secure tbe |
erection of a suitable building. He tele- j
graphed to a former resident of Elmira and i
secured bis pledge to give $10,000 toward a
130,000 building. In bis closing address Mr. ■
Moody urged the men of means in Elmira to
secure at once the needed balance. It would '
be a grand thing indeed, if while, in St. Paul ,
Mr. Moody could institute a similar work in
behalf of the Y. M. C. A. of this city, who &1- j
so occupy rented rooms. Tbe Globe suggests
that the effort be made to-day and to-morrow
to secure a Y. M. C. A. St. Paul building
fund. Mr. Moody, will you take the lniatlvef
THE ADVEST OF CIIItTSTJIA*.
Not only the juveniles, and the little ones
are full of excited expectation at the near ;
approach of the annual advent of the mythi
cal Santa Claus, but children of a larger
growth, as • well, are looking forward, not j
only with expectation, but with genial and ,
generous impulses to the supreme presents- :
tion hour. The usual custom of giving and |
receiving is a beautiful humanizing one. '
December 25th will dawn upon many a bap- |
py household. The delightful prattle of chil- j
dren will arouse the memory of the no- |
cent past in many a mind, and while giving j

ficult for the more advanced in life to deter
mine which is freighted with the greater de
light, tbe enjoyment of the present, or the
remembrance of the past, when childhood
knew no cere.
To go beyond the pleasing furor of childish
delight at the reception of the bewildering .
contents of the pa>-k of childhoods venerable \
patron Stint, he custom of bestowing, and
exchanging tokens of affection, and kind re
membrances is a beautiful one, sweeping
from tbe heart the dross of sordid selfishness,
and filling the soul with emotions of tender
ness awakened by nothing else on earth.
Parents, brothers, sisters, friends, lovers,
swept by the gushing tide of overflowing af- j
fection, are never so etherialized, fo lifted
above earth's coroding Influences, as in the
gift giving and receiving of the Christmas
time, when heart responds to heart, each
anxious to bestow happiness upon loved ones.
The custom is a beautiful one, attesting the
divinity within us, and even suggesting the
permanent joys of a higher, holier sphere
where nothing gross or earthly shall ever
separate between veriest, loving trk-nds.

THE COLORED liErAUTJXEXT.
Sext Tuesday, the 16th inst.. the doors of
the great World's Exposition at New Orleans
will be opened to the public. It will be truly
grand and in every way attractive in tb« per
fection of its preparations and arrangement*
and without doubt will draw exhibitors and
visitors from every section of the country,
and from every clime in the world. There
is one feature of the Exhibition that has not
been made very prominent which is of great
importance and which if omitted, would
cause It to fall far short of the completeness
which it has attained. The thoughtful and
sagacious managers have provided a Colored
Department in the World's Cotton and In
dustrial Centennial Exhibition, where the
colored people arc permitted, and are request
ed by their white fellow citizens to make an
exhibit of what that class of people in the
South are doing in the fields, in the work
shop?, and around their firesides for the ad
vancement and elevation of their race.
The influence of this proceeding will be of
incalculable benefit to the South of all classes
and conditions. It will tend to put down
the slanders and calumnies uttered against
both the white and colored people of that gee
tion, by designing, knavish political dema
gogues, notably at the North, and will go to
show that the late subject class is not ignored
by their while fellow citizens, but that the
latter wish for, and aim at their elevation,
and recognize them as an important and
valuable factor in the industrial field-work,
mechanical labor, and such household, do
mestic manufactures, fabrics and adorn
ment?, as properly belong to the deft and
cunning hands of females to produce. It
will show too, by the products of the more
advanced colored people, how capable they
arc of being uplifted, and made intelligent
producers of the mO, and their capability of
competing in all the department* of art, and
machine and industrial achievements.
It is hardly too much to say that this one
feature, the Colored Department in the Ex
hibition, will be of more value to the South
than all else in its harmonizing and amelior
ating influence upon the races, in elevating
and advancing the educational, social, and
every industrial interest of the South. The
dense ignorance of a large class of the late
Eubject race, and, also, that class which in
the days of slavery, were called "the poor
white trash," is the greatest foe to the wel
fare and prosperity of the South. That be
in removed , the greatness of the South
will be assured in every department of life
pertaining to human interests. This recog
nition by the Exposition of the rights, inter
ests, welfare and improvement of the more
unfortunate class of the Southern people,
will give an impulse in the right direction
towards their improvement and welfare that
will never cease to be felt, and will recipro
cally aid every other class, and advance
every mutuul interest of the South, and pro
mote its moral, social, religious and educa

The Evening "Day"' Claims to flare

A report was circulated yesterday tft*rnoon
to the effect that the even in c Day publishing
company, • located on Jackson street, bad
suspended business, and that the- nocturnal
twinkler was in reality defunct. Tbe rumor
was started about noon, and like all news of
a disagreeable character, it spread rapidly
and was given incredulous credence and sot
a little currency. Subsequently tbe streets
were filled with lusty voiced newsboys, cry
ing "extra edition of tbe Day." which, as
was afterwards ascertained, was intended as

The occasion of tbe extra was found to
consist in the following double leaded and

In order to arrive at the true in

rooms of the Day, where an interview was
had with Mr. John S. Dickerson, the man
aging editor of tbe sheet. In reply to inquiries
the Utter said: ''This affair is merely the
result of a dastardly conspiracy on the part
of J. M. Hu«sey, our city circulator, and

Ills father was a conductor on the Chicago

former city. His parents were divorced four
or five years ago, both marrying again, his
mother being a resident of Cass
county. Ho lived with his father
and stepmother at • Winona, and
was an attendant upon the normal school at j
, that place. Friday morning be stole from !
j the bouse bis stepmother's gold watch and
i bis father's revolver, and took passage for |
j St. Paul, having not quite $3 left after his
arrival here. His intention was to go to bis '
: real mother In Cass county, but after be ar
rived here . he felt be had
dune a foolish thing. He had
left a good, kind home and wanted to go
, back. His father will arrive at Winona from

Meetings of Committees on Police
' Alarms, on Claims and on Leg
The committee on police of the council
held a meeting yesterday afternoon at the
j council chamber to take some action on the
dispute between the superintendent of the '
fire alarm system and the contractor of the
1 police alarm system regarding the method of
stringing wire* by the latter on the city's
| poles, which are also used by the fire alarm
! system. Fire Alarm Superintendent Jenkins
| said a few days ago be stopped the workmen •
! employed by' Co ntractor Birge because they
; refused to put arms on the poles where he !
| thought safety demanded. Mr. Birge said
I bis contract with the city did not call for j
i arms, but that where brackets could not be
used to tbe best advantage, safety from con- !
, tact with other wires, whether telegraph, tele- !
i phone, fire alarm or let trio, being always j
considered paramount, arms were put in.
Tbe committee auttorizi-d Mr. Jenkins to
superintend the work of stringing the police '
wires in the future, and to see that Mr.
Birjrc's workmen put them up In a substantial I
j and safe manner. Tue evidence did not
ehuw that Mr. Biree's men hid done any of
j their work in a shiftless manner. There Is a
1 difference of opinion as to whether theibracket j
or the arm »yst«m is the safer. By the '
latter more wires ran be strung on a single >
! pole, and on 11. falls all the weight of the
argument in favor of arms.

True to Its Nature and Policy.
The Minneapolis paper, printed in St.
Paul, after having published a batch of swell
statistics of Minneapolis, yesterday made a
j counteracting sickly show for St. Paul.
i Policy com pels that prostituted sheet to make
I a show of doing something for this city, and
I policy *:*.. leads it to swell Minneapolis
while it belittles St. PauL We have not got
time to go through the pretended statistics
1 published In that fraudulent sheet yester- '
day, but here are a few of the omissions that
came to mind on a brief glance at the bogus
1 exhibit. In what it says of the work for
next rear no mention was made of tbe fol
lowing: Hall's block, on the corner of ,
Third and Jackson street; Daweon's
block, on Seventh street, west of Robert,
where tue excavation for tbe foundation has
' already been made; the club bouse, which Is
i completed to the first floor; a three story
l brick block 100x100 on Dakota avenue,
foundation in; a three story brick block
, 10UX100 corner of Seventh "and Bradley,
foundation in; the completion of the Ryan
hotel; the completion of the chamber of

Davidson block on Wabssbaw street, between j
Third and Fourth streets; completion of the
Geiseinian Mock on Seventh street, between
. Cedar and Minnesota streets; the block be
tween Beach and Minnebaha, foundation in;
| the completion of the National German
; American bank, corner Robert and Fourth
stret-ts. There, arc many others that
> could be mentioned as not Included -
in the pretended tables, but these few |
large and costly blocks that have been men
tioned are sufficient to show how utterly ;
worthless the tables referred to are. All '
I through there is to be observed an absolute 1
and patent depreciation of the structures, j
| and vet the sbeit referred to claims and as
sumes a great disposition to be fair. Any i

Loxdo*, De*- 13.— An explosion occurred
here to-day which Is still Involved la mys
tery. Careful inquiry at various police offices
elicited the statement that bo serious dam
age was done. The general belief is that
some explosive article was thrown from or
beneath the London bridge.
Lo»i>o2i. Dec. 14, Ba. m.— The explosion
was thought at first to have occurred at the
London bridge depot, bat this proved un
founded. Persons on London bridge at toe
time of the explosion say they heard a loud
report and observed two flashes of light.
Many pane* of glass were broken In the cus

Londox, Dec 14, 3 a. m.— The explosion
at London bridge occurred at about 5:40
o'clock last evening. The police think a boat
containing explosives and a burning fuse ■
attached was allowed to drift beneath the
bridge. Eye witnesses say the flames shot
up simultaneously from each side of the
bridge, showing the fuse bad been nicely
timed to cause the explosion when half way
beneath the bridge. Ihe damage is believed
to be slight, although darkness prevented a
Los do.x, Dec. 14, 6a. m.— lt is an un
doubted fact that tin attempt was made to
blow up the London bridge. The police have
absolutely no information of the affair. It is
now supposed dynamite was used in the ex
plosion and dropped over the bridge and
alighted on the buttress. The damage done
consists chiefly of broken windows in the
bouses in the vicinity. A bootblack relates
bis experience of tbe explosion as follows:
"I was cleaning a gentleman's boots when
suddenly I felt the earth shake about me.
Immediately afterward there was a
terrific explosion and I was stunned. When
I recovered consciousness the gentleman had
disappeared ." Tbe buttress on which the ex
plosive is supposed to have alighted is only
slightly damaged. Persons crossing the
bridge at the time of lbs explosion were
thrown down and many gas Jets in the vicin
ity extinguished by the concussion.

arrived from New Turk to-day. Speaking of
Gen. Grant's refusal to become a United

[Special Telegram to the Globe. |
New York, Dec. 13. — The fir t assembly
bail, which took place at DHmonico's rooms
on Thursday evening, was a brilliant social
event. Society sent able representatives of
all Its varied grades :md a<;es.
The crowd was Immense and the heat
distressing. Diamonds glittered everywhere
and the atmosphere was heavy with the per
fume of thousands ot roses. Indeed, the
bouquets carried by the debutantes exceeded
In size and number any that have been
bitberto seen in a New York ball room. Miss
Berry man and Miss Lina Post were about
bidden by the forest of blossoms that they
carried before them. Observers with a taste
for financial calculations are puzzling them
selves to know whether young men have
grown richer or flowers cheaper in the last
twelve mouths. Certainly such a profusion
of nature's gems was never lavished on any
previous generation of debutantes. The pre
ponderance of white among the ladles' cos
, tumes at both the Delmooico balls detracted
somewhat from the color and warmth of the
Mrs. Orme Wilson nee Carrie Aator, glit
tered an shimmered like the heavens of a
starry night in a gown of silver
tulle, with diamonds flashing from
every available point. Mrs. Colemap Dray
ton's white satin and lace dress was relieved
by bunches of bcark't poppies, and Mrs. John
Borlan made a nice bit of color in the general
abuse of it by her gown of rich cardinal red.
She looked extremely well, by the way, after
her summer in the far west. Miss
Cameron, daughter of Sir Roderick
Cameron, wore a costume of red
satin, embroidered with gold and an
A satian bead-dress of gold that was both ef
fective and original. The fashion of
scraping the hair up to the very top of the
bead and there disposing of It in braids and
bows seems to be at last universally adopted.
Notwithstanding that Vanity Pair has been
pretty industriously occupied ol late with its
own leeitiraate business, yet time has been
found for two very considerable ven
tures in the cause of charity. The bazaar in
aid of the destitute blind went swimmingly
on from morn to dewy eve at the Brunswick
on Monday and netted a very satisfactory
result. The entertainment given to-day for
the benefit of the borne for crippled children,
i under the direction of Mrs. Win. Bliss, was
! so original in conception and so well organ-
I ized as to prove both socially and financially
successful. It opened with a vety good concert,
! which was followed by tea and dancing/ All
the prominent society girls, among them Miss
Otis, Miss Post, Miss Morgan, Miss Murray,
; Miss Grant, Miss Bnckley,and a regiment of
' others assisted at the tea tables, and were
most picturesquely costumed in aprons and
tnobcaps, each one wearing ribbons of the
color worn by her attendant knight, who
bad been previously chosen from among the
thirty ushers. The music, the. lights and
i toe animation of the scene attracted quite a
crowd of outsiders, who thus bad an oppor
i tunity of seeing and being waited upon
by society* queens, and, as in the case at
, the London bazaars, did not at all mind be
ing relieved of their $5s and |10s by the neat
banded and sweet-faced Fhyllisea of the oc
i casion. As for the ushers, amonsr whom
j were Messrs. Rutherford, Cutting, JfcYicker,
Aspinwall, and Beach, they did their duty
bravely and added not a little to the en
joyment and success of the enterprise.
After a stately and dignified square dance,
with which the gayety opened, general danc
ing began and was kept up with as mnch
I gayety as If Saturday night had not come to
; draw a friendly curtain over the rolicking of
i the week.
Cards are out for a debutante dinner at
: Mrs. Barbey'a on Monday, the 22d, which will
, precede Mrs. Emmett's ball and probably be
! a very superb banquet. Indeed, "Rosebud
; dinners" are going on all the time and on a
scale of luxury and magnificence that ia al
most thrown away upon the girls and boys
who surround the hospitable board. At a
dinner of twenty, given a few days since
by Mrs. Morrell for Miss Mabel Jenks, an
I orchestra of twelve stringed instruments,
taken from among Dr. Damroscb'a best mu
sicians, played daring the serving of the
