\ interview with the Globe this morning
i Mayor Rice says that no gambling houses

i This nro-statement from the mayor was

I erected him know him well enough to trust
J nimwiththeexecutioa of the laws. If there
j arejnore gamblers and prostitutes in the city
j than usual they have come here because of
I their- belief in the publications, made from
i time to time, in the Pioneer Press, that the
gate© of the city would be opened to them
tmder»the present administration and that
; they would be licensed to carry on their
; vocations. The misrepresentations made by
j the Pioneer Press in tins respect have not
only been a reflection on the good name of
the city, but they have held out to the dis
reputable classes an inducement to come to
St. Paul, because they have been Informed
through that journal that a wide-open
policy was to prevail under a Democratic
administration. Yesterday's issue of, that
paper reads very much as if Mr. Tom How
ard was back on the tripod and that the
paper had sufficiently recovered from its
scare incident to the late grand jury inves
tigations to recommence its dirt-throwing at
Mr. Rice. The evening Republican journal,
which is usually fair and liberal in its views
and methods of dealing with public matters,
hits its more offensively partisan morning
Republican contemporary some well-merited
raps over the knuckles. In referring to tho
covert assaults daily indulged in by the
morning Republican paper the Dispatch
These covert innuendoes are intended to
destroy public confldeuoe in Mayor Rice, to
convey the impression that St. Paul is about
to be given over to a riot of debauchery, and
hence are calculated to injure the city's fair
name and fame. It will be remembered that
this same paper, just before election, made a
shameless attack on Mayor Rice aud other
prominent citizens, and that its charges were
investigated by the grand jury and pro
nounced false. One of these charges was
that the gambler o—o—l had contributed
largely to the Kick campaign fund. The P.
P. subsequently confessed that its only au
thority for this and other charges was the
"veracious" Tom Howard. Yet this morn
ing it has the indecency V> virtually repeat
this charge in a snoaktng manner through its
news columns, thus:
As one sport put it yesterday, "Chixn has come
to open his house again to set back the money
he put into the campaign fund."
And with characteristic , fairness and
commendable truthfulness the Dispatch
says in addition that it does not believe
that Mayor Rice is under any pledge to Mr.
Chirm on account of money contributed to
the campaign fund, or to anybody else.
And it furthermore says that it believes Mr.
Rice accepted the mayoralty "free and un
trammeled and that he intends to admin
ister his office to the best of his judgment
for the welfare of St. Paul." This manly
declaration of the evening Republican
paper is in happy contrast with the miser
able attempt of its morning Re
publican contemporary to revive charges
which it had previously made and
subsequently confessed to be false, and for
which it made an abject apology in order to
escape a punishment that it richly de
served. The people of St. Paul have no
fears but that the city will be governed well
and wisely under Mayor Rice's administra
tion. And so long as we are satisfied, with
the existing state of affairs, why the neces
sity to create the false impression abroad
that the city is overrun with disreputable
people and that it is to be tho rendezvous
of gamblers and prostitutes? There is no
city of its size in the Union which is more
orderly and in a more healthy moral condi
tion than St. Paul, the Pioneer Press to the
The New York Times expresses surprise
that Gladstone should have been defeated
on a question of finance, and that a budget
of his government should be thrown out
when even his detractors have allowed him
the credit of being England's greatest finan
cier and a pre-eminent maker of budgets
which proved to be both passable and work
able. It sees, however, "several causes of
discontent with the budget, as, indeed,
there were sure to be. since it involved a
considerable increase of taxation. The in
come tax had already been strained as far
as it would go, insomuch that of the £36,
-000,000 increase of taxes within the last
live yens as compared with the five
years preceding, the payers of the in
come tax had contributed in that tax and in
direct taxes upon property £32,000,000, the
increase from all other sources amounting
to only £4,000.000. Mr. Ciiildkrs pro
posed to increase largely the tax on beer,
and economists had argued that this propo
sition was entirely just, seeing that equal
quantities of alcohol were taxed much more
heavily in any other form, whether of native
or foreign spirits or of foreign wines, than
when tared in the form "of beer.
Nevertheless, the proposal to increase the
beer tax excited strong opposition. The
brewing interest is very powerful in Groat
Britain, and the brewing interest evidently
inspired the discontent which found expres
sion in Sir Michael Hicks-Beach's at
tack. It is not to be supposed that the gov
ernment could have been beaten on the excise
question alone. No doubt many, perhaps
most, of those who voted down the budget
did so out of mere partisanship, without any
reference to the validity of the specific criti
cisms made upon it. They hated the govern
ment on account of its shortcomings in the
Soudan and its submission to Russian aggres
sion, and they voted accordingly that it had
unduly increased the beer tax. But if the
budget alone would not have sufficed to beat
the government, neither would its foreign pol
icy alone. Whatever may be thought of the
situation of the government with reference
to Russia, it is certain!? no worse than tlie
situation of the government after the fall of
Khartoum, which was so bad that the gov
ernment eagerly seized upon the Russian
question as a diversion. And at that time,
the issue being fairly made upon the policy
of England in the Soudan, the government
escaped censure. The majority for the
govern— tent was very small then; the ma
jority against it is very small now. The
difference may represent the votes of the
members who voted with the opposition
because they objected to the beer tax.'-'
During the national conference of correc

Philip C. Garrett of Philadelphia de

INJUSTICE TO LINCOLN,
If Mr. Charles A. Dana is correct in
his reminiscences of Mr. Lincoln it seems
that the latter gentleman's notion of civil
service was to. "give and take," or in other
words to fill out a list of Republican spoils
men,, to be taken equally from the two fac
tions of the same party, and he would put
them into office. That is the policy Mr.
Lincoln announced to Mr. Dana and his
friends who visited the president soon after
his inauguration to demand an equal share
of the New York patronage with Thurlow
Weed and William PI. Seward. Mr.
Lincoln has been looked upon as a model
president, and for this reason it is to be
hoped that Mr. Dana's memory has
proved treacherous. Otherwise he makes
Mr. Lincoln to appear in public light as the
most offensive partisan that has ever been
in office. ' Here are the words Mr. Dana
attributes to Mr. Lincoln when the spoils
hunters visited him: "One side shall not
gobble up everything. Make . out a list of
the places and men you want and I will en
deavor to apply the rule of give and take."
It is unfortunate. for Mr. Lincoln's repu
tation that Mr. Dana should have recalled
this reminiscence at all, and particularly at
this time when the spoils system is in such
general disrepute. Mr. Lincoln is the
only one of the Republican presidents who
was supposed never to have been thoroughly
indoctrinated with the Republican ideas
and methods of civil service. So while this
reminiscence conflicts with the previously
formed " opinion of Lincoln's character
and methods, still Mr. Dana occupies too
high a position to have called in question his
veracity or even his memory, and it is to be
hoped for the sake of preserving correct
history he will renew the statement with
more circumstantial details.
Following up the argument advanced by
the Globe that the true solution of the
labor and social problem was to be found in
a policy that would check the tendency of.
population to the large centers and turn
the tide toward the fertile plains . of the
West, a correspondent writing from the
Red river valley gives some important facts
in support of our theory. As an illustra
tion he mentions one section of country In
the Red river valley on the line of the St.
Paid, "Minneapolis & Manitoba railway,
which can find its duplicate in many parts
of the West. In 1880 there were only two
or three car-loads of wheat shipped from
Northcote, and the lands lying around the
place were principally vacant lands. People
began to follow up the railroad and to
settle the lauds. The next year
there were twenty car-loads of wheat
shipped i from that point. In 1883
there were sixty cars . laden with
the golden grain of the fertile val
ley, and last year the shipments
amounted to 120,000 bushels. While five
years ago the land where the town now
stands, and about it, was unbroken, this
year it is estimated there are 8,000 acres in
wheat and the estimated yield will be 160,
-000 bushels. In the meantime this farming
industry has given birth to and has been the
support of a thriving little town whose
property valuation is now 880,000.
This is but one' illustration of many that
could be cited to convince the workingmen
of the East that . their wisest course would
be to abandon the precarious life of mill
work, and, organizing themselves into colo
nies, come out West, secure homesteads, and
at the end of five years they will find them
selves independent farmers with their fam
ilies well provided for, and not subjected to
the caprices of the manufacturing indus
tries. X— —
BOBBING UP AGAIN.
Ever since Mr. Gladstone was capti
vated by the beauty of a celebrated Amer
ican actress he seems to have been fired
with a dramatic spirit. Everything he has
done of late has had a touch of the drama
about it. It was so when he thrilled par
liament with his great war speech a few
weeks ago. It was so a few days ago when
he stood in the commons, pale and trembling,
and listened to the announcement of the
vote by which his government was defeated.
But the most dramatic feature of all is
about to be presented in his reported reap
pearance" at the head of the • government,
and after having formed an alliance with
the anti-coercionists. Mr. Gladstone was
known to have been opposed to the coercion
measure in the beginning. It has not been
long since he was in constant communica
tion with Mr. Parnell and that gentleman
was relying upon the premier for support in
securing an Irish policy that would secure
tranquility to Ireland. What influences
Lord Spencer brought to bear to cause
Gladstone to make a change of front
are not known. If he goes back
into the premiership through a com
bination i with the anti-coercionists it
will be a remarkable victory for the Par
nell party, lt will show that they hold a
balance in the British parliament that will
serve them a good purpose in the future.
English politics are very similar to politics
on this side of the water. A great many
strange things happen, and only a few who
are inside the rings can explain the causes.
Mr. Gladstone's reappearance at the
bead of the government will bo a severe
blow to his enemies, who felt confident
that they, had the old man down and were
able to hold him. ..__■■ '

It was not a very big fraud that Secre
tary Whitney recently discovered In the
navy department, yet there were some big
people connected with it. It conies down
from the days of the aromatic Robeson,
who. made a tract with the owner of a
process for preserving wood. The terms of
the contract were ? changed from time to
time, but the company received thous
ands of dollars -, from - the government for
treating timber used in naval construction
with its- preservative chemicals. Finally
toward the close of Mr. Chandler's " ad
ministration the government bought the
company's plant outright. As the result of
an investigation set on foot by Secretary
Whitney it is discovered that the process
is of no practical value, and that its use has
cost the government over $150,000. The
virtuous Gen. B. F. Butler was associated
with Messrs. Robeson and Chandler in
the swindle. 'Gen. Butler was a Repub
lican at the time he introduced the patent
process to Mr. Robeson.

It is stated that the owners of factories lo
cated in Hamilton, Mass., have imported 350
French-Canadians to work in their mills —
too, it is said, in spite of the fact I that '. there
are hundreds of idle natives about that local
ity eager and anxious for work at a fair
price. It is this system of human importation
which has been made use of from time
to time by the textile manufacturers . in New
England that renders absurd tho statements
they frequently make about the keen interest
they have in the welfare of the American .
workingman, and their unwillingness to have
him brought into competition with the pauper
labor of the old world. It is stated that at
the present time not 20 per cent, of the oper
atives in the New England cotton mills are
American born, although a generation or so
ago the mills throughout these states were
chiefly operated by American men and women.
The change that has taken place in the inter
val furnishes conclusive proof that the effect
of the protective tariff in these large in
dustries has been, to drive Americans out of
employment and to give it to those who are
willing to work for wages that are beneath the
scale which an American workman considered
necessary for a simple but comfortable liveli
hood. The worst feature about this Hamilton
importation is that the Canadians who have
been induced to come and take the place of
native workingmen do not intend to make the
United States their permanent home, but
hope, after a few years of labor, to retire
with the money they have laid up to tho vil
lages and towns on the banks of the lower St.

St. Peter, Minn., June 11.— The day
began under very favorable circumstances
and continued clear, with a cool breeze
blowing. Anyone unaware of the cause of

effort has . been made to injury R. B. Har
rison, United States assayer in charge of
the mint at Helena, who is a son of Sen
ator Harrison of Indiana. The scheme, it
is understood, originated with a discharged
employe, but it is evident that others are
sharing in it. Two days ago a dispatch
was received over the wires, saying that an
investigation showed that the public money
had been used for private purposes. As
this was signed by the name of the author
ized agent of the press it was permitted to
pass. The friends of Mr. Harrison having
challenged the statement, an investigation
was instituted and the Helena agent called
on for an explanation. He promptly pro
nounced the use of his name a forgery. The
Western Union Telegraph company have
now been called on by the Associated Press
to ■ explain why its manager at Helena ac
cepted and transmitted a forged dispatch.
That company will be held to a strict ac
countability in this case. Word has been
received from the United States mint ex

The Country Proves Impassable and

Gen. Middleton's Camp, Seventy
Miles Northeast of Fort Pitt, June 9.—
Middleton's command is now halting at the
edge of a big and apparently impassable
. muskeg,- some four miles in width, across
which Big Bear has, however, passed, hav
ing abandoned his carts and traveling with
Indian pack ponies. Scouts report him to
be debouching west, being doubtless after a
big cache of provisions stored by him at
Beaver river. If this is his intention he
will be badly left, as the flour has already
been captured by Gen. Strange and is now
in his possession. Gen. Strange and his
command are encamped near Cold lake, in
the neighborhood of Frog Lake. Middle
ton's force, the • composition of which I
have already telegraphed you, are bivou
acked here. Tents and everything else
that can possibly be dispensed with have
been ' discarded, the great aim, of course,
being to 'overtake Big Bear and rescue the
prisoners. Middleton is using every effort •
to accomplish this. All wagons will be
dropped and Bedsoru's pack train utilized.
This is the only means of transport, and
even with this the probability is in favor of
the muskeg being found impassable. Sup
plies were sent down the river to Pipestone
Creek yesterday, then up the country to
wards Turtle Creek, to intercept Middle

Chippewayan Catholic Mission,
Portage of Beaver river, June 9. Gen.
Strange's column, which arrived here this
morning, is making preparations for Big
Bear's reception. Maj. Hatton's mounted
men arrived yesterday in time to see the
Indians, supposed to be Chippewayans,
cross the river. There are seven lodges in
the band, as shown by a deserted camp on
the south bank. The Indians are pushing
north very rapidly and it is impossible to
follow them, owing to the dense forest
and muskegs north of the river. Indian
scouts line the opposite bank, watching
our movements. Detachments of infantry
will be stationed for three miles east along
the river, and scouts will be sent out on
foot to locate Big Bear. The country is
heavily wooded and marshy in every direc
tion, thus retarding horseback travel. It
has been discovered that a cache of ninety
five sacks of flour is here and also a large
cache of furs. The transport service will
return to Fort Pitt to-morrow for supplies.
The water in Beaver river is very high.

sible this band may include Big Bear, who

Result of Skating-Rink Intimacies.
Boston, June 11. — Four pretty and rosy
cheeked girls, all neatly and tastefully
dressed, sat in the municipal court this
morning. They were all between 16 and
17 years of age. Apparently they were as
innocent as a child 3 years old, and their
presence as prisoners in the dock excited
much comment among the habitues of the
court room. The testimony of the officer
who arrested them showed that the girls
were the victims of skating-rink intimacies.
Their names are Sadie Goldsmith. Maggie
Conley, Mary McKay and Rose Clerty.
They have frequented the Argyle rink
all winter long, and officers have often
seen them roaming the streets with
men at midnight after the rink
had closed. They have also been
seen drinking liquor with young men, and
one of the party confessed to the officer
that she had occupied a hotel room night
after night in company with three other
little girls aud a young man. The officers
testify that the language used by the girls
is shockingly offensive. They cried bitterly
in court to-day, and protested their inten
tion to reform. Sadie Goldsmith. a brilliant
Jewess, seems to be the worst of the four.
Judge Allen, who reserved his decision, will
probably send her to Sherburn and put the
others on probation.
Why Not Try 'Hoppers, Also.

Westchester, Pa., June 11. — Dr. W.
D. Hartman astonished a number of his
friends this morning by the aunouncem ent
that he had been living on locusts for some
day. He dug up a number yesterday after
noon, had them fried in butter and this
morning called on some friends and invited
them to partake of the lunch. The doctor
remarked that it was necessary to eat a half
dozen to get their' flavor, and after that they
would be eaten with relish. He called them
baby locusts, and they were fresh from the
earth. They are very abundant in
the surrounding groves, covering the trees
and fences so thickly that they can be
gathered up by the bushel. When'the doc
tor was asked how he prepared the locusts
he said after gathering them from the
earth he took them home, washed then:
through six courses of pure cold water until
they were perfectly clean, then they wer«
put into boiling water and boiled some
twenty minutes, after which the legs were
