The orderly and harmonious convention
of yesterday speaks well for the strength of
the Democratic organization in this city.
Notwithstanding tho differences of opinion
which prevailed on some matters and the
little friction which always occurs in
political bodies from individual aspirations,
the convention disposed of every question
which arose before it in a dignified and de
corous way that commended itself to the
Democrats of the city. While the results !
in every particular may not.have been en- |
tirely satisfactory to everybody, they were
accomplished by the usual Democratic
methods of submitting all matters in differ
ence to a fair vote and accepting the will of
the majority as the law of the convention.
This is Democratic, and all Democrats will
cheerfully abide the result and support tho
nominations. The ticket is an exception
ally good one. Thirteen years of continu
ous service have demonstrated the fitness of
Mr. Geobob Bus for the responsible du
ties of the ollice of city treasurer, llis
official record is his certificate of good con
duct and the best indorsement of his quali
fications. The unanimity and enthusi
asm with which the nomination was again
conferred on him yesterday were a high
testimonial of the esteem In which he is
held by his fellow citizens. The nomina
tion will be ratified at the polls with about
the same unanimity as prevailed yesterday.
Mr. FORD, the nominee for associate
municipal judge, is a young man of line
abilities and excellent deportment, and will
will till the position for which he has been
nominated, and to which he will be elected,
with credit, both to himself and to the com
THE WOBKiyQJIAX*! IIOM"E.
The frank, manly expression of the Dem
ocratic city convention yesterday on the
labor question leaves no room to doubt the
friendship of the Democratic party to the
workingmen. The speech of Chairman
O'Bkiex and the resolutions adopted by the
unanimous vote of the convention settle
this point. There was no straddling nor
attempt at evasion. The Demociatic party
in St. Paul is fairly on the record as the cham
pion of the workingman's interests. And
It is natural that it should be so. From Its
birth to the present time the Democratic
party has been composed of the men who
work. It is the party of the people of the
republic, and the uncompromising foe to
sham aristocracy. The great mass of the
people who groan under the exactions and
oppressions of corporate power look to the
Democratic party for relief. There is no
other source from which help can come.
The workingman who is outside the Demo
cratic fold is lost There is no congeniality
in the Republican party for him.
The party which is responsible for
the birth and growth of monopolies and for
the., creation of an aristocracy based on
wealth alone can have no sympathy for the
men who earn their living by the sweat of
the brow. The laborer who wanders into
the Republican party stands in the relation
of an alien and a stranger. Like the prodi
gal of old, he is wasting his substance and is
living on political husks. The working
man, he who toils in the shop and on the
farm, can never be at home except under
' ST. PAUL'S OPPORTUNITY.
"With the return of the St Paul delega
tion from Miles City comes the grateful
assurance that the stock yards and slaughter
pens are to be established in this city,
provided a sentiment of cordial indorse
ment of the plan is awakened among our
own people, and they manifest a desire to
co-operate with the projectors of it in
making it a success. The benefits which
would accrue to St. Paul are so apparent
that they need no discussion.
It is also equally apparent that the estab
lishment of stock yards and slaughter pens
at St. Paul would be of equal benefit to
the cattlemen of the Northwest, and they
readily recognize it. Now they are com
pelled to ship to Chicago, where the whole
cattle business is in the hands of a syndi
cate who absolutely control prices and
everything else relating to the cattle trade,
and the cattlemen are entirely at the mercy
of this ring. By establishing the stock
yards at this point, the cattlemen would be
relieved from the tyranny and oppression
of the Chicago ring. Then there would be
the saving of freight in the shipment of
live stock, which in a year would
aggregate a large profit to the
cattle owners of the Northwest.
Another considerable saving would be in
the matter of shrinkage. Every mile
«aved in the shipment of live stock is just
that much less shrinkage, and this is no in
considerable item in the profit and loss ac
counts of stock raisers. Every dollar
caved is a dollar added to the profit side of
the balance sheet. These are all strong
arguments in favor of St. Paul as against
Chicago as the proper place for stock yards
for the benefit of the Northwestern
cattlemen. And what is more, St.
Paul is the nearest point to the great
grazing territory of the Northwest which
is available for fattening cattle. Situated
on the edge of the corn belt, with railroad
and river transportation facilities unequaled
by any other point in the Northwest, St.
Paul presents advantages in this respect
superior to any other place in the North
west The chief cost in the transportation '■
of grain is in getting it on and off the care.
Such being the case, there is no reason why
a carload of corn from Kansas or
Missouri, or lowa or Nebraska, can
not be laid down in St. Paul at
a very little advance on what it costs de
livered at Omaha or Kansas City. Thus it
is that the cullings of the cattle supply,
and such as are not desirable for wintering
over, can be brought here and fattened 1 ! ust
as they are at Omaha, Kansas City and
Chicago. These and other reasons in favor
of St. Paul are so potent that the cattle
men not only recognize them but are pre
pared to co right ahead and have plans ma
tured and put into execution without fur
ther delay for the establishment of . stock
yards in this city. The only obstruction to
its fulfillment lies in the indifference of our
own people, or a lack of disposition to give
With the establishment of these stock
yards at this point will come a boom for St.
Paul that has not yet been attainted. It
will in all respects be the establishment of
an industry which promises better results
than anything else in sight There will be
immense stockyards for the reception of
thousands of cattle annually. There will
be immense slaughter pens where thousands
of beeves will be slaughtered annually.
There will be Immense packing houses, and
tanneries, and soap factories, and button
factories and the numerous other industries
which, in the nature of things, will spring
up in connection with this scheme— all glv-
i tig employment to thousands of laboring
people, as well as bringing in an immense
amount of additional capital to the city.
It is just one of those things that no city
can afford to miss when the opportunity is
presented to secure It These cattle dealers
are coming to us with the proposition that
the stockyards shall be established here.
The benefit is mutual — equally bene
ficial to them and to us. They
are not asking us for money
or for any extraordinary privileges. They
are merely asking us to manifest as much
interest in the enterprise as they exhibit.
They expect us to extend to them open
hands and hearts. They want us to advise
with them aud to aid them in securing a
suitable location for their yards and pens.
It would not bo characteristic of St. Paul
if our people did not do this. Lot every
citizen feel that he has a personal interest
in this matter and bland ready by his efforts (
and his inlluence to help it along. Let us i
talk the matter over union;; ourselves and
be ready to give these gentlemen all the aid
within our power when they come to us on
the M of next month.
It is altogether Important In the selection
of grounds for these Block yards thut a lo
cation should be had where the drainage is ',
good and where it leads off to the. river at
such a place as would not indict injury j
upon the city. It is also important that a
location should be had where water could
be obtained in abundance and it would be
convenient to get Ice. In selecting a site
for the stock yards it should also be kept in
miud that it is necessary to have room
enough for the expansion of the business
in the future in proportion to the increase
in the cattle business in tho Northwest.
With these general ideas of what is needed
our people can canvass the matter among
themselves and be in condition to make a
definite proposition to the committee of
Northwestern cattlemen when they arrive,
that there may be no delay in putting the
projected enterprise on a permanent foun
THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
President Cleveland regards the pres
ent labor trouble as a matter of sufficient
importance, to make it the subject of a
special message to congress, notwithstand
ing the fact that Mr. Gould and Mr. Hoxik
only look upon it as a pleasant little diver
sion of no serious consequence to anybody.
We are gratified to observe that the presi
dent takes precisely the same view of the
matter that the Globe: did in the beginning,
that the time had come when an arbitration
court was necessary to protect the business
interests of the country. If congress is
wise and has the public welfare at heart, it
will promptly act upon the suggestion made
by the president
It . 13 with pleasure that the Globe
notices the enterprise of its Minneapolis
morning contemporary In securing the ap
pointment as the official orirun of the Presby
terian contention which will soon meet in the
city up lie river. It is so much more dignified
to publish verbatim reports of ministerial
conventions than to hustle arouud alter
details of a cyclone. Aside from its remark
able enterprise, it is pleasing to note that the
forty days' fast has brought about this yearn
ing among the contemporary's staff for higher
and better things.
The Rock Island militia are under arms
expecting to be ordered to tho scone of the

commandant of the costly Rock Island armory
will memorialize congress at once for an ap
propriation to complete another big armory

nary military emergency has arisen."

GEN.TEREY BANQUETED j
The Friends of the General Tender Him a !
Farewell Banquet at the Hotel
Sixty-One Distinguished Gentlemen of St.
Paul and Minneapolis Partake of
Formal Tonsts by Gen. Terry and
President Northrop of the
Farewell to <.«u. Terry.
Maj. Gen. Alfred 11. Terry was tendered
a banquet at the Hotel Ryan last night by
his St. Paul friends, it beinu the eve of his
departure fur Chicago to assume the duties
of a major general of the United States
army. It was a very elaborate affair
and one of the most elegant
banquets ever served in St.
Paul. The ladies' ordinary, the scene of
the festivities was very handsomely dec
orated with the national colors, and from
the. ceiling was looped rod and white
bunting. All the windows, mantels and
niches were tilled with flowering plants 111
profusion, which not only filled the room
with sweet, delicate fragrance, but made
it look like a veritable flower garden.
The tables were set in the
form shown in the diagram and I
were very beautifully decorated. In front
of Gem. Terry and on the center of each of
the other tables were tall center ornaments,
while bouquets of hot-house flowers and
fancy pyramids of fruit were plentifully
distributed, in front of the banquettors.
The proprietors of the Ryan had planned
to do their best, and their head waiter, A.
L. Plummer, had even surpassed all pre
vious displays. The table silverware
was laid out in artistic designs
known only hi the intricacies of the caterer's
brain and at each plate stood six wine
glasses of different sizes and colors. The
seat of each guest was designated by a card
containing his name in gilt letters and taste
fully displayed among the intricate folds of
a napkin. The tables had been laid for
seveuty-five gentlemen, but fourteen
of these werp absent, so that
exactly sixty-one partook of the repast.
The bill of fare was -rotten up on very heavy
rouirh cardboard, in two pieces, fastened by
a silken cord. The front contained a line
PORTRAIT OF <iFN\ TERKY
and the inscription: "Farewell banquet

ciable manner, at the end of which time

Joseph Bnbluttcr, New Ulm, was an ar
rival at the Merchants yesterday. He is
an editor at the scene of the great Indian
massacre of lSiVi and writes Republican ed
itorials and Republican local items. Noth
ing of .i Democratic character ever
darkens tho press of his paper. He
served in the war and made a creditable
record. At the present time he is a candi
date for a place on the Republican state
ticket and is not particular what place lie
gets. Being in the army he is willing to
take any place assigned him. He has been
up for oflico before, and on such occasions
is a Grand Army of the Republic man. His
visit to St. Paul was to consult with possi
ble candidates anil see if the old soldiers
stood any show of getting a representative
on the state ticket.
Ex-Collector of Customs Bookwalterof
Blue Earth county was in the city. lie
said that he had recently taken a trip
through the Red river valley and was sur
prised to see the advanced appearance of
vegetation. In nearly all the farms the
seeding had been completed and in many
cases .lie young wheat was above ground,
green and nourishing. In all his ex
perience in Minnesota, and he has
been here for twenty-live years,
he had never known such an early
breaking up ot winter as during the
present spring. He said that in other
years a short season of real warm weather
in the early days of April was invariably
followed by a storm, after which the
weather became chilly, not to say wintry.
Storms, during the present warm weather,
had not been followed by any such atmos
C. Korhs, Deer Lodge, Mont, is a
transient at the Ryan. He just came from
Miles City, where the cattlemen have
been in conference. Asked what he
thought of the gathering, he said that it
was a good thing, as it would improve the
story-telling characteristics of the cattle
men. He is the owner of many hundred
cattle, and is also interested in mines. On
his way East to enjoy a brief vacation is
this Montana cattle king.
J. S. Eshennan, Grand Forks, came In
from the East on his way home. He is
mayor of that thriving little city, and has
been away for a short time on business and
pleasure. Mayor Esherman is a staunch
and true Democrat, and is deservedly
popular in and about his home. He is
engaged in mercantile business, and is
a live, energetic and prosperous business
J. 11. Klein, Helena, Mont., passed
through. He is a member of the firm
Gans & Klein, which has stores in nearly

company, and is chock-full of the good and

Nothing pleases him better than to get
hold of a man who desires to learn some
thing of Honduras or the mines.
Mr. John Ross, chief manager of con
struction on the Canadian Pacific railroad,
is visiting friends in the city. Quiet and
unobtrusive, the short, thickset Scotchman
is not one to attract the attention of the
casual observer. Yet to the enterprise and
energy of this unassuming man is due the
successful completion of the Canadian
Pacific. Although he is nearing the three
score-and-ten limit, he still carries the
weight of his years gaily, and this notwith
standing the fact that his life has been
largely spent away from the busy
haunts of men, and amid those hardships
and privations that fall to the lot of the

Mr. Charming Seabury, president of the

tribution of funds. The general fund
from St. Paul, that appropriated by
the council, will be distributed by the
Jobber's union, on behalf of the city through
Mr. Seabury. All other contributors, othei
than those in trie general fund, either of
cash, lumber or furniture, and coming from
St. Paul or other cities, if sent to Mr. Sea
bury. or to C. W. Hackett, chairman of the
St. Paul relief committee will be properly
distributed. The contributions from St.
Paul, Mr. Seabury said, will aggregate
a much larger sum than" has
been reported, and would be distributed in
fully as efficient but less noisy way than
those of the twin city up the river. Mr.
Seabury said that the people in the ruined
districts seemed to have just recovered from
their dazed condition, and next week would
begin work of upbuilding in earnest. He
reported immediate and pressing need of

Costly Land Slide
Special to the Globe. .
Lancaster, Wis., April About
25,000 yards of dirt gave way this morning
and crushed down the Mississippi rivet
bluff at Glen Haven upon the track of the
Chicago, Burlington & Northern railroad,
which is in course of construction there.
This Is the second land slide which has oc
curred at Glen Haven within the past two
weeks, making about 50.000 yards of debris
which covers the railroad grade. It will
cost about 310,000 to remove the obstruction,
which expense will be borne by the railroad
company. A large amount of earth still re
mains in a dangerous condition and is ex
pected to fall at any time. A number of
! workmen in the vicinity escaped without
