THE NAVAL PORTFOLIO.
Senator McPherson May Possibly be
Cleveland's Adviser on Ships
and Other Craft.
His Constant Opposition to the Schemes •of
Secretary Chandler and John Roach.
'Special Telegram to the Globe. I
Washington", Dec. 17.— There would be
an appropriation of that degree known as
poetic justice in President Cleveland's ap
pointing Senator McPherson secreUry of the
navy. The gentleman from New" Jersey
has given a great deal of attention
to naval affairs. He takes an
active part in every debate on the naval
appropriation bill and always In antagouls m
to the Republican majority of the committee,
and the key-note to all bis remarks on na
val affairs is bis determination that, so far as
he can prevent it, not one cent for tbe in-
crease of the navy shall be expended while
Wm. E. Chandler is secretary, and not one
cent shall be disbursed to Jobn Roach.
Early this afternoon there was a struggle
for precedence between Senator Mor
rill, chairman of the finance committee, to
which the nomination of Secretary McCulloch
was of course referred, who wanted an exec
utive session, and Mr. Hale who wanted to
have the senate consider the naval bill, not
the bouse bill appropriating half of last
year's appropriation in a lump sum, but the
senate bill, which is itemized as usual, and
which provides for the construction of new
ships. Mr. Hale was reinforced by Mr.
Miller, of California, chairman of the
senate foreign affairs committee, showing
that be bad no treaties to press upon the
attention of the senate, but Mr. Merrill got
the usual majority and the doors were closed.
Whea the open session was resumed Mr.
Hale got his naval bill up, and Senator Me-
Pherson made a determined attack on that
section of the bill which allows the secretary
Of the navy to make contracts for the uew
ships after sixty days' advertising. Mr. Mc-*
Pherson's point was that it was possible.
for the bill to go into effect by Jan. *1, and
if so, the sixty days would expire before Mr.
Chandler. would go out of oliice, and be was
determined that there should not be the re
motest possibility that contracts should be
awarded by the secretary, who used to be
John Rhode's legal adviser.
Under the most favorable circumstances
this bill, if passed by the
house at all, would not Ue
likely to get through both bouses of congress
and become a law before March 30, the date
of most of the appropriation bills passed at
the short session. As this is Wednesday,
and the bill has only just been introduced
into the senate and has yet got to buffet its
way through the house and congress will ad- j
journ from next Saturday to Jan- j
vary 5, the possibility of Mr. Chan
dler's awarding contracts is scarcely visible to
the eye, but Senator McPherson's abundant
caution may be due to his recollection that i
Secretary Robeson signed the contracts for ;
the monitors that have caused so much dis- '
cussion the day before be went out of office.
Mr. McPherson bad another point to make.
From the first be bas been quite faith
less as to the merits of the plans |
for the Chicago, Boston & Atlanta. At the
very best lie has said they were experiments —
plunges into the unknown — and that also
against the judgment of eminent naval ar
chitects, so that they ought to be thoroughly
tested before auy more ships arc built on
their models. Therefore, be offered an
amendment that none of the new
ships provided for in the bill should
be contracted for until the Chicago, Boston \
& Atlanta had been completed and thor- .
oughly tested. This amendment was offered
for the purpose of making it responsible for
Mr. Chandler to let contracts. It was voted i
Sown by a party vote, except that Messrs. j
jarlind, Morgan and Jones voted with the
Republicans against the McPherson j
intendment, and Gen. Hampton an
nounced that he was paired with bis
solleague, Gen. Butler, who, if present,
would vote against the McPherson amend
ment These four Democrats, all southern
men, Garland, Jones, Morgan and Butler,
have steadily supported the Republican pro
jects •or increasing the navy without waiting
for a Democratic administration.
A PASTORAL LETTER
By the Bishops ofthe Methodist Church
Assembled in Conlerence at
Baltimore, Dec. 17. — The pastoral letter
of the bishops read at the centennary con
ference of Methodists is addressed "To the
Methodist people in the United States and
Canada." It says:
Permit us to remind you, dear brethren,
while we extend hearty congratulations upon
the success of the past, and express the pro
foundest conviction that even nobler
and grander achievements await us
in the future. That the mission
given us by tbe providential allotment is not
yet accomplished. We entreat you, brethren,
do not forget that hitherto Methodists have
been distinguished by the emphasis they have
given essential doctrini-sof Christianity. In
all the years of our history truths relating to
God, to moral government, to Immortality,
to eternal retributions, have been sacredly
maintained and asserted with great distinct
ness. And that we have held in common
with all Christian people to the inspiration and
divine authority of the Scriptures, the Divine
origin of the church, vocation of the min
istry, value of the sacrament and iudispens
ableness of the strictest morality according
to the New Testament standard, and that
yet beyond all these points, we have made
conspicuous the heinousness of sin, tbe
necessity of atonement, universality of pro
visional redemption, freedom of will and
freeuess of grace. Not one of these
can be discarded or distorted without
training the scheme of salvation revealed
by the Gospel. But even these foundations
of truths, however emphasized, will not meet
the demands of the soul, and never could
have produced the phenomena of Methodist
life and history. There are other doctrines
to be employed; doctrines which relate to
salvation applied well as provided; doctrines
which underlie the experiences of the soul
in its struggle out of the darkness and death
of sin into light and life in righteousness.
The other doctrines have been the rally
ing cry of Methodists in tbe past and
must be iv the future. They are repentance,
faith, justification, adoption, the virtues of
the spirit, sanctitieation and Christian perfec
tion. Out of these come all our experiences,
all our joys and hopes, our inspiration and
aeal; and upon these are built all our special
forms . ni means of grace, our charities, our
b-t evolences and our institutions. These
doctrine-, above a 1 others, have given tone
and shape and spirit to the organization and
<"et<rmined Its work and place in
history. Take from Methodism these
doctrines of experience, or even the empha
sis given them, or overlay them with lifeless
forms and ceremonies, or mar them by hu
man speculations concerning the mode of
d v ne proc dure in them, or confuse them
by auy conceivable departure from their sim
plicity, so they shall become only doctrines
of the creed, unvoiced in the soul as the
very essence of salvation, and then our glory
is departed forever. -We, therefore, plead
with you, brethren, as you value the purity
of tbe church and Its power to convert the
people, aud spread scriptural holiness,
hold forth these doctrines and they come
from the fathers, as they appear in the scrip
tures, and as tbey have been attested by tbe
experiences of the church in the past ages."
The address urges maintenance of family
religion, "The holiest sanctuary on earth,"
tbe address says, "and the Christian home.
Neitber church nor Sunday school can be tbe
work of home, or become an . adequate sub
stitute for the influence of tbe Bible
in the household. See to it that the
♦biWretj be all taught of the Lord j
with sound Instruction. Let the hand
of restraint be employed, yet with such firm-
ness and gentleness as to win and keep the
children, as well as to bold them in subjec
| tion to authority." The address speaks of
the sabbath as the pillar of Christian clvlU- I
I zation. "As a spiritual church without the |
! sabbath Is an impossibility, God has conse-
crated one-seventh of our days to rest and j
! worship. Tbe law enjoining Its observance

schools and colleges, with our wealth and

numbers, we must have a large shire in the !

There was something very oppressive in

Sbe was a graceful, handsome woman, I

1 years she bad lived alone in that silent
| bouse, She was twenty-seven years old and
Sbe was expecting a visit from the super
intendent of the Treadwell Mills. She owned
' tbe buildings, and bad sent for this man to
come and confer with her. She observed
witb haughty displeasure tbat be did not
come until long after the hour appointed.
The Lytton a bad been an extravagant race.
and the last generation or two had found it
difficult to sustain tbe family pride upon a
ruined estate. Miss Lytton "a fater had been
1 compelled to go into trade, and bad bought
tbe Treadwell Mills, hoping in time to can- i
eel some of the debt* left him by his improv- j
; ident forefathers. When he died be left bis '
mills heavily encumbered, but tbey were do
ing sufficient work to be made profitable in '
a few years, if judiciously managed. Miss
Lytton had advert for a superintendent,

lessons and assisted with her aums. lie was
doing tbem now though in a different capac
ity. Nothing was ever spoken concerning
those old days of bis prosperity, when be
had been able to meet her upon an equal so
cial footing: and she now treated bim a shade
more imperiously than any otber of her em-
It would have been difficult to Imagine
Gerard Lincoln suhscrvlant to any MM. He
was a man of thirty-five years, with a bear
ing as proud, though nut as arrogant, as her
own. He was a strong man, physically as
well as mentally, and had a physique which
a mill-hand invariably respected. Ills face
bore evidence of bis decision of character,
and was a forceful face. He was a shrewd
judge of human nature, and knew the men
mi bis charge thoroughly. He was a juat man
and one wbo exacted obedience.
Had Miss Lytton been like other people
■he would bave felt graciously towards this
superintendent; 1.. r interests bad prospered
uuder bis wise management.
He was a man of liberal culture and Inher
ent refinement; nevertheless she told herself
a hundred times a day bat be was Insuffer
able. She was certain her estimate of him
was correct when be entered her parlor three
hours after she bad sent for him.
She did not offer him a chair when be en
tered her parlor; sbe remained standing
while he briefly told her that he had Ik-- de

or appearing aware of her offended dignity.
" Hie mill-hands struck at noon to-day;

mand an increase of 10 per cent. in their
wages, and refuse to resume work before it

She began pacing tbe I 'tig room, drawing

"I understand that yon have been severe

are enemies of tbc aristocracy, and call such
people as you and your ancestors tvranta. If
you refuse to grant the workmen's" demand
they propose tearing out the machinery of
your mills, or burning them to the ground.
She gave a contemptuous little shrug.
"If Ihey will bum tbe mills they will kill
their goose of the golden egg," she said. "By
destroying my property they will lose their
only means of support."
"There was once a dog In a manger," be
said dryly. ' "These people have some of that
animal's selfishness; th.-y do not wiah to
keep their position at your terms, but they are
unwilling to see others in their places."
"What would you advise me to do!" she
It was the first time she had ever directly
asked bis advice.
"If you were a man," he said, "I would
tell you to resist the strikers to the death. If
you grant what they ask you will barely earn

She allowed the shawl to tUp from her
shoulders to the floor, where it lay unheeded
at ber feet Her face, in Its proud calm,
would have been a study for a sculptor.
"It is my wish that the business should be
carried on exactly as though my father were
living," she said*. "I will not condescend to
compromise with these outlaws; lam not
raid, and they may burn the mills yes,
and this house also— before I will yield an

There was much suppressed excitement
throughout the town next day. It wss learn-

drunken carousal which bad rendered them
insensible to reason. A few men had ex-
pressed their wish to be reinstated, and had
been assigned to their old places. -
During the day the superintendent sent a
note to Miss Lytton. urging her to leave

"and in their present condition are capable

He tossed her letter into the fire.
"Yon are too proud to ahow the white

At nlgbtfaU on Monday Mr. Lincoln re

attacked at 10 o'clock that night Tbe new
employees were secretly given notice to be
on the grounds at the Ume appointed, and a
few p .'icemen of] the town were informed of
the expected trouble.
Early ln tbe evening Mr. Lincoln paid a
a visit to the Hall, and found the building
shut up as close as a tomb. The servants
who knew something of tbe night's prospects,
took tbe precaution to bar every window and
door as though fortifying themselves against
During the afternoon Miss Lytton had ex
perienced - a revulsion of feeling. Sbe was
not a nervous woman, and was accustomed
to abide by her decisions; but she began to
fear that this time abe had made a mistake.
Previously she bad only considered the dan
ger witb wbicb she was threatened, but ehe
suddenly remembered that her superinten
dent would share the risk. He was the limb
between herself and her workmen, and they
naturally looked upon bim as their employer.
They knew him, while many of them bad
never seen her. Tbey realized that he had
the power to employ or discharge them. He
bad increased or decreased their wages at bis
will. Tbey would probably wreak their ven
geance upon bim npon him more viciously
tban upon a woman with whom tbey had
never bad personal dealings.
Wben be saw her that night she was less
autboratlve at first tban usual, although ber
manner was cold. He told her of his ar
rangement for protecting the mills. She
learned that the new men were armed with
rifles, and that tbe strikers had been joined
by a mob of tramps and outlaws who had
never done an honest day's work In their
litres, but who were infatuated with the pros
pect of a night of plunder and riot
During this recital Miss Lytton had been
nervously clasping and unclasping her
"I bare changed my mind," she said at
length, ber voice a trifle quicker thaa usual.
"I wish to retract. When I said I would not
compromise, I did not foresee bow serious
this difficulty might become. I wish now to
give up the struggle. I can afford to sacrifice
my business interests belter tban risk the
shedding of one drop of human blood."
Her woman's heart was beginning to as
"Your decision Is merciful," her superin
tendent aaid; "but it comes too late. You

in your emergency. You hare not work for
700 people, and it would be gross Injustice
to send adrift the unoffending workmen to
conciliate a crowd of ruffians-"
Her nervousness increased.
"What can be done!"
"I do not know that a riot can be averted
now," he told her; "but I will do what I can
to quiet the strikers. I hare been used to

He made no answer, but a little Ironical
smile touched his lips and exasperated her

believed be had* lost her.
"Tbis Is an insult I" she said.
"No," he told her his voice deep with feel
ing, "-it Is the greatest honor I can bestow.
I offer to make you my wife and give you my
life's devotion. You call this an insult be
cause you are Miss Lytton of Lytton Hall, and

birth has given you a pedigree and has made
you appear cold and Intolerant, yet I know it

lounge. She wa so silent that a servant who
entered did not observe her and turned down
tbe lights, believing the room to be unoccu
Tbe firelight glanced about, brightened the
faded furniture and finally shone soft and
warm upon Helene Lytton 's face. Sbe was
lying still, deep In thought, her dark eyes
fixed upon tbe fire, ber lips and cheeks crim
son as wine.
Sbe waa at rtled 01 1 of her reverie by a
ahot from a dis tant rifle. She sprang up and
It was foUowed by a dozen more reports,
which rang out sharply upon the cold nigbt
air. They came from the direction of the
TreadweU Mills. Wbat terrible tragedy was
being tbere enacted?
Her heart beat tumultuously, and her face
was drained of Its warm color. Her suspense
When would sbe know .the result of her
firat desclslon concerning the strikers! He
was there amid all the noise and danger; she
was sure that nothing sbe had said would de
ter him from trying to save the mills.
Would he come back and tell her the result
of his efforts. Might be not be Injured. dyinc
—dead, even — and so unable to come to her?
She caught up a cloak, wrapped it closely
about her, and drew its hood over her bead.
Sbe was going out Into the darkness and
clanger alone, to know what was being done
on that frightful riotous night
Everything was In readiness when the
strikers reached the. TreadweU Mills that
night The police had vainly tried to dis-
band • them. The rioters were strong in
namber, and the police force in that Uttle
town was small.
Behind the barred door* of the main build-
ing 300 silent men waited with rifles in their
hands. Only one window was lighted. It
! was in the superintendent's room.
Aa the crowd approached he stepped ont
npon the parapet surrounding his window
and commanded the men to atop. Many of
them were accustomed to obey him, and did
so now without reflection.
He followed up the little advantage he bad
••Four hundred of yoa have come up here
to-night" he aald, "armed with clubs and
rides with which you mean to Injure one
helpless woman. God help yon, workmen,
for baring fallen so low as this 1"
He explained that if their demands bad
been granted tbe milla must necessarily have
ceased running in a few months through
lack of profit He asked that if half a loaf
was not better than none.
He reminded them that the looms had kept
the wolf from their doors for many years,and
given them certain anpport He shamed
them for wishing to destroy them now, and
argued that they were striking a blow at tbeir
wives and cbUdren by their wanton conduct,
and were bringing want and hunger into
their own households.
Many of the ex-workmen were influenced
by bis plain statements and fearless manner
but some of the street allies rushed at the
Mr. Lincoln sprang into the building and
ran down to where his own men were wait-
ing. The order waa giyen to flre blank cart-
ridges at tbe mob and tt was obeyed.
Tbe rioters rerurned fire with balls, but In-
discriminately; they were surprised at the
defense in the mill, having supposed it to be
A rumor spread like fire that the building
waa full of soldiers. Some of the outside
men ran away, others engaged in personal
skirmishes, and the new men fired another
volley of blank cartridges, adding hideous
confusion to the scene.
At lbe end of fifteen minutes tbe mob was
disbanded, a few ringleaders had been ar-
rested and a few beads bad been broken, but
the Treadwell Mills were uninjured.
Everything about them seemed silent and
forsaken when Mies Lytton stepped over the
debris left by the rioters and asked the watch-
man if Mr. Lincoln was within.
The man answered that he was.
"May I see him?"
The watchman hesitated.
"If you please," he said, -the superin
tendent has been hart Somebody put a
bullet into him and the doctor la probiug for
the ball. I don't think you can see him."
She ran past the watchman, up the dark
stairs, and stood outside the office door. Tbe
doctor came out and found ber there. Her
cloak bad fallen off, and she stood white and
trembling. She was very unlike the haughty
mistress of Lytton Hall.
The physician was going out to order a
carriage for his patient. In answer to her
questions be said that Mr. Lincoln bad been
sbot In tbe arm. His wound was not neces
sarily dangerous, although it was very pain-
Her color began to return.
"Do you think he would be able— that he
would Uke to ace mcl"
The doctor was too gallant to think his pa-
tient could be leas tban delighted.
Sbe knocked at the door, her heart beat-
ing so loudly that she scarcely heard the
voice which bade her enter.
He was seated facing the door and was at
once startled and astonished by her appear-
ance. He wondered if any dire calamity
bad occurred at tbe Hall.
She motioned hlm not to rise, while she
stood just within the room a spoke in a voice
shaken by emotion :
"I could not rest when I heard the firing
to-night I came here through the fields,
trying to escape the rioters. I saw the mam
driven from the mills. ' I came to hear about
He listened In almost breathless silence.
"I know you have been brave to-night I
beard on my way what you bad done. I do
not know bow yon conld do it for me. "Aft
er to-night you will never respect me," she
continued approaching him a little; "but I
mu't tell you that I asked you — that I corn-
man Jed you not to apeak to the men to-night
because I feared tbe danger to yourself. I
was not prompted by capriclonsncss, but by
honest fear for your safety. I called yon my
subordinate wben I knew yon were tilted to
till the higbest vocation. I said you offered
me a gross insult when In my heart I knew
you bad paid me the greatest compliment in
my life. My wretched pride has led to all
tbis trouble to-night. I feel as lf It were I
who had put that ballet Into your arm."
He bad been silent all thia Ume, but he
had read her face and ber woman's beart.
He took her into his arms; he kissed her
lips nnUI the warm red rushed into her hand-
some face once more.

Canadian Freight Classification- *r
I Special Telegram to the Globe.l
Chicago, Dec 17. — George L. Carman,
commissioner of the Northwestern Traffic
association, baa issued the following important
portant notice: As some misunderstanding
exists as to the ruling under the Canadian
joint freight classlficaUon, which applies on
shipments desUned to Manitoba on car load
shipments of mixed freight, your particular
attenUon ia called to rule 2, printed with that
classification, which is as follows:
' "Mixed freight of various classification
shall not be taken at carload rate, but each
descri i,tlon must be weighed and charged as
per classification. The definition of the
term 'carload' ia 20,000 pounds, except
w .ere classification provides for a different
weight of one article shipped an one day
from one consigner to one consignee, from
one point to one desUnaUon. We
are advised that lines north of St Paul require
that these rules be strictly adhered to, and in
cases where aeperate weights on car loads of
mixed freight are not given the following
rale will apply: . Car loads of bonded freight
delivered to the lines of the association at
terminal points without being properly classi
fied at first class rates, tbe
minimum rate for 20,000 pounds.
This ruling is intended to cover
mixed shipments of dressed meat and poul-
try, sugar and syrup, butter and eggs, and
articles of a like nature."

[Special telegram to the Globe.l
WasHi?.aTO"f, Dec. 17. Senator Van Wyck
to-day introduced two bills of considerable
Interest to tbe people west of the Missouri
river. Ten years ago the aparseness of the
populaUon afforded railroad and telegraph
companies ground for charging much higher
rates than were charged east of the Missouri.
Since then the populaUon and business have
greatly Increased, but there has been no
proportionate lowering of rates. Van Wyck'*
two bills prohibit any telegraph company or
any railroad company which has been char-

any aid or franchise from lt from charging
more between the Missouri river and the
Pacific than the average telegraphic - and

The territory has no debt worth mentioning.
Joe Emmons Is peculiar. '
Judge Nlcbeus, the eminent attorney and
legislator at Jamestown, while trying a case
in court the other day, was assured that one
of bis statements was a "d — d lie," where
upon he knocked the man over and varie

An injunction baa bees issued restraining
the county commissioners, of Mciienry Co.,
from doing any business on the ground of
mal-administration,and that they ordered no

office two years longer.
A rt riety troupe, formed at Fargo, started
to the pacific coast last week, but were
stranded at Bismarck, owin_r to the fact that
the people there were shocked at the Insuf
ficiency of the costumes of the lady per
formers. Even the local editor of the
Tribune fainted at the performance.

All who have claims In the railroad land
district are waiting before they prove up to
see the result of the effort to secure a reduc

which will save them $200 on each claim.
This will also reduce the pay of the land offi

The proprietor of the Star, a low variety
theatre, of Fargo, which there
has been some effort to suppress,
a day or two ago was brought up be
fore Judge Roberts on the charge of larceny
of a pair of socks, which he had on. The
fine and costs amounted to $.11, and an ap
peal to the higher court was taken.
Now that the war at Redfleld is over, anil
the soldiers have returned to the bosom of
their families and friend sun scarred, the ques
tion at Issue will be transferred to the courts.
Redfleld will, no doubt, endeavor to establish
the claim that it had the right to the county
seat four years ago by virtue of a majority
vote, and vindicate its rights Id the courts,
as it should have done In place of tbe absurd
fiasco at arms.
The name of the woman at Minoewaukoo,
who attempted suicide recently, was Hackett,
not natch as reported. Her husband, Ed.
ll:'<'k<'tt, Is a commissioner of McHenry
county, and bas been mayor of Bismarck,
and is a large land owner in the Mouse river
country. It is thought possible she may re

in which she said, "I do not know the se

dent of Fargo, who waa city attorney and a
leading citizen, haa returned from Indiana,
where he spent the past year and took an
active and efficient part in the canvass, help
ing carry the state for Cleveland, bas re
turned to Fargo to again become a resident.
He prefers the territory to any of the states,

give great satisfaction here.*
The secretary of the farmers' movement In
Barnes county has obtained figures showing
the difference in the price of the best
qualities of Michigan and Dakota wbeat for
several months, the former at Jackson,
Mich., and the latter at Valley City, Dak. It
la claimed that No. 1 bard is worth seven or
eight cents a bushel more than the Mich
igan No. 1 white, yet for November last the
latter brought the Michican farmer an aver
age of 25^c a bushel more than the Dakota
farmer received for bis superior quality.
These are among the data to be presented the
legislature to show that the Dakota wheat
growers are defrauded of what they are juatly
entitled to and victims of elevator and rail
road monopolies. It Is believed that there
should not be more than fifteen cents differ
ence on the same quality of grain at tbe two
places. The farmers are very much in earnest
in seeking relief. ,
The Fargo boys are enthusiastic over the
treatment accorded them at Redfleld and
Ashton. The latter place gave them a din
ner on their return . The cost of the expedi
tion Is not less thao $3,000. Tbe visitors
there were surprised at the bitterness of feel
ing shown by the factions, and do not be
lieve it will die out however the settlement
may be. Still, it may be doubted tbat there
would have been any different result had no
troops been sent. It was a foul scheme of a
few unknown individuals, stealing the
records, and should have been promptly re
pudiated by tbe Redfleld people. They did
not approve it, and were free la their re
marka to the soldiers to condemn it, but
they did not relieve themselves from suspi
cion as they should. The armed mob that
threatened Redfleld were largely composed of
French settlers, who were the main Instiga
tors. They arc an uninformed class and
easily excited. It is expected that Spink
county will have to bear all the expense.
