In making a call for the state conven
tion, the Republican central committee got.
mixed up in its almanac, and the result is
that there is a doubt in the public mind as
to whether the convention is to be held on
Tuesday or Wednesday of this week. Tho
Minneapolis Tribune of yesterday says that
the convention will be held on Tuesday.
Some of the state papers speak of it as
"the convention that will be held in St.
Paul on the 3lst of September," while a
number fix the date a* Wednesday, the SML
The Globe is not the organ of the Repub
lican central committee, and does not
speak ex cathedra,- but for the benefit of
several correspondents who are making in
quiry concerning the matter, it announces
that Wednesday next is the day fixed for
the Republicans of St. Paul to assemble iv
the Exposition rink in this city to nominate
a ticket to be slaughtered at the polls in

As the tit.oHK recently intimated, things
be^in to look decidedly stormy for Delezate
Gifford anont his renomination as Da
kota's delegate to coneress at the Yankton
convention on Wednesday. The casual
remarks let fall by a North Dakota delega
tion. heßded by Maj. Edwards, which
was in the city yesterday en route to the
seat of war, indicate very plainly that a
thunder storm of the largest dimensions is
about to break over the present delegate's
head, Mr. Gifford is not to have a walk
over by any means. In fact he will be ex
ceedingly lucky if he secures the nomina
tion by the smallest possible margin. North
Dakota has never had a great deal
of love for South Dakota, and in the
present instance has united with Central
Dakota for the purpose of bringing defeat
upon the Souths favorite son. The oppo
sition, skillfully manipulated by Maj. Er>
wakps, will do much in forwarding the
caudiUacy of Gen. Harrison Allen, of
Fargo, and should he not be found avail
able the combined forces will turn to the
genial major himself as the champion who
will overthrow either Delegate Giffoijd
or his other self, Col. Gkigsby. Gen.
Allkx has many friend* throughout the
territory who will stand by him to the last,
and Mr. Gifford may well feel uneasy over
his candidacy. But any one of the ceutle
i:ien mentioned will be a good enough target
to be riddled by the rattling fire of Dem
ocratic ballots In November,
The retirement of Chaplain MrixTxs.
recently stationed at Fort Snelling. calls
attention to the -ork of that gentleman in
establishing something like a system of in
struction throughout the army. It appears
thai a crcat many, ponieihing: like 10 per
cent, of the privates, are unable to read
or write, while a still larger proportion
hnve advanced but little further in ac
quiring the rudiments of an education, in
addition, the period of quiescence enjoyed
by our army, the isolation of a
lar^e portion of it at remote posts.
and the length of time which companies 10
--main at the same statious. enable the sol
diers to have their families, if they happen
to po«>e*s such, in their vicinity. Numer
ous children thus are about every post and
but scanty educational facilities are alforded
them. Through Chaplain Mui.lins' efforts
something like schooling has been at
tempted, but it is far from exten
sive or thorough, though the best
that could be accomplished by individual
effort. By a system of compulsory
education where instruction was most
needed, the morale and effectiveness of the
entire army would be raised, while the gov
ernment's best interests would be served in
not allowing the many children to grow up
in ignorance. There should be a govern
ment M'hool at each post, established
and supported by the government
and under the immediate supervi
sion ot the post commander. Whether
the teachers should b« especially
appointed fr"m civilians or whether officers
should be detailed for such service i 9 a
minor point which couid easily be arranged.
The man thing is the early establishment
of the schools, and for that there seems to
be great necessity. The government cannot
afford to permit the existence of ignorance
in any quarter where it has the power to
dissipate it. _
A DOUBTFUL STATEMENT.
Em Perkins' statement that President
Cleveland is afflicted with the big head
since his elevation to the presidency, to
such an extent that he declines to recog
nize his poor relatives, will be taken by the
public with several grains of salt in it.
The author of the statement is reputed to
have such a vivid imagination that
every thin %I he publishes in received
with a moderate degree of allowauee.
At the same time he has connected
with his statement certain circumstances
which give a coloring of truth to it aud
wnich will make it necessary for the presi
dent's friends to jrive an explanation of the
matter. The fact that the president refused
to give an important appointment to his
brother-in-law who resides in Toledo, when
the people of that city, irrespective of party,
had united in asking that the appointment
be made, is a matter of history.
That episode was charged up to the
credit side of the president's account with
the public, as it was regarded as an evi
dence of his disposition to put his foot
down on the practice of nepotism which
had prevailed to a, disgraceful extent under
previous administrations. It is the stnry of
the president's treatment of his brother
that will bother the public mind the most.
The president's brother is a parson up in the
■orthern part of Ne.v York state who has a
hunUv to Rapport on a meaner ?a'a' r
©f $500 a year. The proper thing to iia\ c done
wlkk liie presidrin #M married wtuld
have been to have had the preacher brother
officiate at the ceremonies. But according
to Eli Perkixs' statement the brother was
not even invited to the wedding. He was
too poor to afford a swallow-tail coat, and
that ruled him out as :\ member of the wed
ding party. On the fat* of it this may seem
to be a trifling: matter to some people, yet it
is of so much importance that the Amer
ican people will at once demand to know
i he truth of it. Of all the mean things that
have been said about President Olevkland
since his elevation to public ©race this is
the meanest. The American people do
not elevate a man to the presidency to
make a fool of himself, and th* man who
is ashamed of his own kin, because they
have the misfortune to be poor, is worse
than a fool. There was nothing in Gau
field's whole career which so endeared
him to his countrymen as his tender affec
tion for his plain old mother. It will take
something more than the mere statement
of Eli Pnuun to convince the public that
the president is guilty of such foolish heart
l&ssnes-S as he is charged with, L'ut as
the president's brother did not officiate at
the marriage ceremony and was not pnvsent
at the wedding, it will be necessary now for
the presidents friends to explain the cause
of his absence.
M'GILiL. THE MAX.
A. R. McGill will be the nomiuee of
the Republican convention for governor.
As near as anything can be predicted,
taking into consideration the proneness of
human nature to vacillate, that will be the
result of Wednesday's convention. Not
only will the present insurance commis
sioner be nominated, but he will be nomi
nated in all probability upon the first ballot.
The most conservative of Mr. McGill's
friends claim such a result, but it
is on a more substantial basis that
the Globe reaches the same con
clusion. A careful canvass of the
delegates thus far elected reveals an over
whelming majority in favor of the state
! house : candidate. It is known that 1.69
delegates are either instructed for or openly
favor McGill. In addition to these there
are fourteen additional delegates whom the
commissioner's friends declare they know
by private advices to be for their chief.
This is a claim which, however, the oppo
sition refuse to concede. It is also known
that eighty-five delegates have Gilman for
their tirst choice, and eighty prefer Gibbs.
Tims the preferences of 348 dele
gates . appear. There are 859 mem
bers of the convention and ac
cordingly eleven doubtful delegates
remain to be accounted for. These are
distributed as follows: Six in Hehnepin,
three in Stevens and two in Traverse. The
Hennt*piri delegates are believed" to favor
McGill. while those from the other two
counties will probably vote for Gibbs.
Granting Mr Gill the fourteen uniristructed
delegates which he claims, he will thus
have on the first ballot 183 votes, three
more than are necessary to elect. In order
for any combination between Messrs.
Gil Max and Gibbs to succeed in defeating
him it would have to include every vote
now accredited to these two gen
tlemen, the eleven doubtful votes
from Henriepin, Stevens and Traverse
and four of the fourteen votes which are
presumably in favor of AlcGill. The possi
bility of the Gilman-Gibbs compact being
able to include every one of their, own sup
porters and all but ten of the other twenty
live delegates, twenty of whom there is
excellent reason to believe really favor
McGill, is so remote that it need hardly
be considered. Either may agree to turn
over his forces to the other, but the goods
cannot be delivered. Chevalier McGill
has friends enough among the supporters of
either to more than counterbalance any
l>oss!ble defections from the band of
fourteen doubtful ones whom he counts
upon to give biin his majority of three.
His nomination, unless something utterly
unforeseen occurs, is a foregone conclusion,
and he will go down before Dr. Ames in
November like Goliath did before David.
He is the giant of the state house cabal,
but will prove a very weak-kneed giant in
deed. His nomination will, of course,
be a triumph of the peculiar ring
methods with which the Republican
party has ruled the state. It will
not be an expression of the people's will.
Utit simply an indication of the dangerous
depth to which Republican bossism has he
come ingrafted in Minnesota's state govern
ment. The people are ignored, and the
caravan will move promptly at the crack of
the ringmaster's whip. But the people will
resent the domineering arrogance, the pom
pous self-confidence of those who fondly
fancy themselves their masters, by the tri
umphant election of their valiant champion,

AN' AW VY OFF EX CBtIPRtSE.
A Mr. iM ink. who is a tuetii!>er of the
Canadian parliament, has organized a joint
stock company at Ottawa, culled "The New
British Empire company, limited," for tin
purpose of purchasing .Jerusalem and mak

tal stock Is 5 10. 000. 000. and among the di
rectors appear the names of Queen Vic

James G. Blaixe. It is announced that
there will be no deadheads in the enterprise,
and that the only way to eet on the ground
floor is to buy in. It is a bi^-sized under

If he raises his 510,000.000 he can probably
buy Jerusalem, but that doesn't make it

Whsx President Cleveland returns to his

in his power to take a good many of the faith
ful, yet unprovided for, in out of tho cold.

The «uu sank deeper Into the West and by
its ever changing hues proclaimed the fact
that euppur time was near at hand.
Through th» sleepintr ear moved a dusky
individual with white jacket. He was the
porter. There was no dining car attached to
this train. It was also known to the experi
enced traveler by that Hue that the eatiutr
station was not reached until late in the
night and that but a short stop was made for
supper. The fact thut lunch, and a very sub
stantial lunch, 100. was servedonthe bleeping
car was known to all.
Down the aisle came the porter. He car
ried with him a menu, giving the articles sup
plied, with prices attached, lie also hud a
blauk card upon whicU he wrote down the
different orders. Three or four old travelers
guve their orders. He stopped before a brido
und groom. Everbody knew that they were
but recently married, although the exact
date of the nuptials was net made public.
If there had been any doubt on the sub
ject it was dissipated when the groom at
tempted to order lunuh for his young bride.
He was not sure tuntfthe wan'.ed bread and
butter and consulted her before giving the
formal order. Together they mtide out the
order, und came very near exhausting not
only the bill of f.. re but the time and patience
of the other passengers. Nothing was too
good for her and ihe expense was of uo mo
ment. He ordered without looking at the
Immediately adjoining- the section in which
the bride and groom cooed and looked lovingly
into each other's eyes, sat a man and bis
meek and loyal helpmeet. They were uo
longer In the morning of life. Age and care
had left traces on each of them. He looted
to be a man in the neighborhood of 50, and if
appearances indicated his calling it is prob
able that he was a merchant of some character
— well-to-do merchant in some smaller town,
who had come up by saving: every penny . His
face was that of a man who knew What it was
to deny iiim~o)f many of the expensive
pleasures of life.
His wife was a motherly woman. She
looked as though her life had been spent in
worrying over household cares and in the
sick-room. Her face was wrinkled. Her
hair, dark brown, tinged with gray, was
brushed across her forenead, and disappeared
beneath a bonnet of moot severe pattern and
color. ■ A black bow with black trimming was
all that relieved its simplicity and severity.
They faced the bride and groom, and the
tender solicitude of he young husband for his
young bride was duly noticed by the bride of
long ago. Her husband did not appear to ob
serve the incident. He pretented to be read
ing a paper. '.
The porter came up and handed the menu
card to the elderly husband. The latter
scanned it briefly, as If to catch the quotations
on theprice-list,and returued it to the porter.
His wife said not. a word. She looked in
quirinply at him for a moment. He shook
his head. The porter passed on.
As the husbund took up his paper and re
sumed his reading, his wife sighed. A stern
expression, as of resignation to the Inevita
ble, settled iio.vn over her dear old wrinkled
face. She looked out of the window and
gazed not at the happy bride and groom im
mediately in front of hor.

a crowd of smokers, who with him occupied

Twenty-Third Triennial Conclave.
St. Louis, Sept. 19.— Early last evening
the local Knights Templars went into quar
ters at the union depot to act as a reception
committee and isc >rt the arriving Knights.
Upon the arrival of trains this evening,
however, they had ilttle to do, but few
commanderies putting in an appearance in
a body. Every train, though, brought its
quota of visitors to the twenty-third trien
nial cwiH'lave. and it was estimated that by
5 o'clock fully 2,000 Knights were already
in the city, and large additions to this
number were made when the evening
trains di.-charged their cargoes. Despite the
threaten. ng weather, avast amount of work
in the way of decoratinK streets and buildings
was done during the day. but many of the
liner and more perishable displays will not
be exposed until Tuesday morning in order
to preserve them from trie elements. The
event of the day in the matter of arrivals
was the appearance of the California dele-
Ration, which came non thirteen trains.
With their ladies tliey numbered about
seven hundred. They were accompanied
by the First Infantry aud Second Aitillery
bands and a grizzly cub which attracted
even m >re attention than the bands. The

A Joint Meeting- With the Engineer!
»-A Railroad Sermon.
Last evening a joint meeting of the dele
gates to the national convention of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and
the firemen and engineers of Minneapolis
and St. Paul was held at Harmon hall.
The audience numbered 500 and matters of
mutual interest to both firemen arid to en
gineers were discussed. Frank X. Holl,
master of Northwestern Lodge No. 82,
presided, and C. W. Gardner, of Ft.
Dodge, officiated as secretary. The ad
dresses of the evening were made by E. V.
Debs, of Terre Haute, the grand secretary;
William Burns, Chicago; T. P. O'Kourke,

Hayes, chief engineer, Minneapolis, from
the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers.
J. E. Phelan, of Brainerd Division No.
144. Brotherhood of Engineers, was ex
pected to be present, but sent word that
business prevented his attendance. The
general teaor of the remarks was an ex
pression of a spirit of fraternity between
the two organizations, and the feeling that
their mission is not to make war upon rail
roads, but to assist in securing simply fair
treatment. The convention will probably
conclude its work Tuesday, in time to
allow the delegates to accept the invitation
to go to Lake Minnetonka, although the j
visit to St. Paul may be abandoned, because
most of the delegates regard it as impera
tive to return home as soon as possible.

By previous arrangement the brotherhood
in a body attended services at the Church
of the Redeemer yestereay morning, about
two hundred of them occupying the pews
reserved. The church was handsomely dec
orated for the occasion, the letters B. L. |
F. being formed in a beautiful floral mono- j
grain on the pulpit. A floral pick was also
displayed on the choir rail, with appropri
ate floral side pieces. The service was
special to the occasion and the music very
tine. Dr. J. H. Tuttle delivered a very
instructive and pleasing discourse on labor,
taking the ground that not one good thing
in this life was obtained without, it, or, if
obtained, was not enjoyed and appreciated.

Impressive Catholic Ceremonies at
Natchez, Miss., Sept 19. — To-day has
been an eventful one in the history of the
Roman Catholic church in Natchez, it being
the occasion of the consecration of St.
Mary's cathedral. The cefejnouies were
conducted by lit. Rev. Fra«is Janesen,
bishop of the diocese of Natchez, assisted
by Archbishops Elder, of Cincinnati, and
Leroy. of New Orleans, Bishops Becker,
of Savannah-, and O'Sulliyan, of Mobile,
and twenty-four priests, who were in
attendance at the synod during the
past week. At 7 o 4 clock in the morning
the service began and continued till 10
o'clock at which time the procession started
for the Episcopal residence, headed oy
bearers and acoly, and followed by
the school children with their banners and
oriflanmies and the officiating bishops an I
priests. Amid the ringing of be.is and
singing of the choirs the procession en
tered the main door of the cathedral, and
proceeded to the altar, where Archbishop
Elder celebrated the poitilicial high mass,
after which bishop Becker preached a ser
mon appropriate to the occasion. The
choir, assisted by the Mexican bsnd. gave
Haydn's Third. Imperial Mass and oth r
musical selections. At 5 o'clock vespers
Archbishop Elderj addressed the congrega
tion. Although consecrated to-day,
the cathedral is by no means
a new one, the consecration having
been delayed until the structure was
free from debt. The corner stone of the
cathedral was laid on Feb. 24, 1542. The
next event of interest was the blessing of
the bell, which took place on May 2(3, 1543.

Winning $524 on 25 Cents---'Shoe
If the statements of the pool-sellers be
true then Chicago must go before the world
as possessing more "shoe string" and "tin
horn" gamblers than any two cities this side
of New York, says the Chicago Herald.
While this term, "tin-horn gambler," fits
the man who loses his breath when he
makes a quarter bet on a faro lay-out, it 19
especially appropriate in the case or ttie
racing crank who stands around all after
noon in a hot and poorly ventilated base

pocket. And right here, v may be &4id on
good authority, are the seeds from which
the little tin horn gambler grows, for it
must be remembered that fully hve-eighths
of the purchasers of these tea-cent combi
nations are mere boys, who are lured into
buying them by the "charming" prospect

come quite popular, if not remunerative.
But there are times when men and boys
"call the turn." and sometimes, it must be
said, they swell their original investment a
hundred fold. If this were not .so there
would not be much incentive to play.
Somebody is sure to win. It may be a school
boy who is not superstitious; and then again
it may be a grizzled old sport who would
rather fast fora week than meet a cross-eyed
man or a black cat while waiting for the
races to come in. There are three dens in
where these ten-cent combinations are sold.
The proprietors of these places have dis
covered that this cheap system of playin?
has become not only intensely popular but
highly remunerative. On every dollar
sifted into the wicket windows where the
ticket sellers sit the house scalps a ten-cent
piece. This is a greater percentage than is
reaped from any of the other pools. The
combinations are wide open for everybody
save minors. Money will not be received
from them in person, but the minor in

and does all manner of things to bring him
luck. Should his combination prove the

and then the boy "stakes" him for the next
day's play. In this way hundreds of boys
—clerks, messeugera and boys who do no
work— cultivate a mania for gambling,
which cannot help but prove disastrous in
the end. The evil is a growing one and
should be crushed forthwith. The fact
that on last Thursday a young man named
Wileox of Springfield, ifl., won 9534 on a
25 cent combination, has inspired these
child gamblers with fresh hope. They say
that if they can do as well as Wileox they
w.ll quit the alley. Close observation has
shown the reverse to be the case. A heavy
winning is likely to prove of more evil to
the boy than a hundred losings. Flushed
with success he naturally becomes extrava
