Hastings, Minn., Sept. 24.— The sec
ond day of the Hastings industrial fair was
a urand success financially. Mayor Ames
and Col. Glenn arrived on the 2:33 train
ami were met at the depot by Mayor
Woodward, the city council and the di
rectors of the fair association. When the
mayor stepped on to the platform he was
greeted by hearty cheering, aud was at
once escorted by citizens in carriages and
on foot, led by the cornet band, to the fair
grounds, whore 3,000 fellow citizens
awaited his arrival. He was so warmly
received and cordially greeted that he could
scarcely escape the crowd to mount the
platform. President Rhodes introduced
tiie next governor as the wide-open mayor
Of Minneapolis. President Rhodes helped
to nominate a man to be beaten by the
doctor. The crowd was large, the wind
high and speaking difficult. Mayor Ames
said that he had been invited as a curiosity,
a kind of prize bull. He was a curiosity to
some, but bad the privilege of serving in a
regiment which had a brave company from
Hastings, and was happy to greet so many
old comrades. Unfortunately for him. per
haps, he had become prominent in politics,
aud might get the worst of it, but he would
MAKE A BIG FIGHT
for the interest of the Boys in Blue, the
farmers and laboring classes. Although, as
a boy. he had worked on afarm while fit
ting for his profession, he did not know
anything about fanning, and did not come
down to tell them about agriculture. His j
mission, his single purpose, was to call the
attention of the farming fraternity and
laboring classes, the most important factors
in society, to the fact that in legislation
they were entirely overlooked. Laws are
passed by the representatives of money to
protect monopolies and capital and grain
dealers, but the farmer takes his grain to
the elevator and takes his chances with the
shorts. He hoped to see the next legisla
ture composed of representatives of the
farmers and laboring men to form laws for
their own protection, and this was his
mission. He didn't know anything about
corn, wheat and pumpkins, though he did
know something about
THE EXTRACT OP THE CORN.
and he did know that farmers had rights
that they had never asked to have protected
and fostered. He came from a manufac
turing city and had been three limes elected
to the mayoralty by the iaboriug men, yet
he did not stand as the champion of labor
end farming, but as a man of principle.
All he asked for these clatses was justice.
He would not antagonize labor and capital.
They are partners, and all he asked was
that capital should give labor a decent
recognition and decent treatment. Gen.
Adams proposed three cheers for the j
mayor, which were heartily giveu. Aid.
Barbaras introduced Col. Glenn, who 3aid |
that Mayor Ames had asked the state con- |
vention for three planks for his platform,
but he could* stand on one to-day. He liked
to see ■— — --
A GOOD HOUSE RACE,
and as the horses were on the track, would
not make a speech, but would be happy to
respond to an invitation to speak in Hast
ings during the campaign. After the
speeches, the mayor shook hands with hun
dreds of his admirers. McGill, in answer
to a telegram, wired President Rhodes that j
though the notice was short, yet he would
be present Saturday and make a speech.
As the train pulled out with the doctor on
ooard, three rousing cheers were given for
the next governor.
FIFTH DISTRICT DEMOCRATS,

Special to the Globe.
Sauk Centke, Sept. 24.— The Demo
sratic congressional convention assembled
this afternoon and organized with C. J.
Cahally, of Clay county, as temporary
chairman, and C. L. Baxter, of Wadena,
as temporary secretary. The usual com
mittees on credentials, resolutions and per
manent organization were appointed. The
committee on credentials reported eighty
six delegates entitled to seats under the
apportionment, a large majority of whom
were present. The temporary organization
was made permanent, and the committee
on resolutions reported •
THE FOLLOWING PLATFORM:
Thfi Democrats of the Fifth congressional
convention of the state of Minnesota do
hereby declare their principles as follows:
First — We heartily indorse the ticket nomi
nated by the Democratic state convention,
and believe that in Dr. A. A. Ames* nomina
tion the Democrats of the state have placed
in the field a man of ability, renowned for his
generosity to the poor laboring 1 classes of
society, a. man who will do justice to all and
a standard bearer who will lead the party to
victory. Second — We heartily indorse the
administration of President Cleveland, and
declare tbat in all his acts he has been
actuated by but one desire— the purity
of the national administration, the correction
of abuses and the strangling: of corruption,
which was created by, born of, and fostered
and sustained by the uninterrupted rule of
the Republican party in national politics for
twenty years; that he has
HADE GOOD EVERY PROMISE
made to the people, and has carried into his
daily acts bis assertions made when mayor of
the city of Buffalo four years before he re
ceived the nomination as president of the
United States, that public office is a public
trust. Third, That the Republican con
vention of St. Paul was controlled and
run by and in the interest of
the Millers* association, and the fire
life and hail insurance monopolies of the
state, and that in a state that has been here
tofore Republican by about 30,000 majority,
the Republican pany has shown their fear
and the recognition of the apparent weakness
of their ticket in endeaving to import James
G. Blaineand John A. Logan into the state
campaign, with a hope that the voters may
be diverted from the issues before the people
and the rule of ring perpetuated.
Resolved, That the time has come when the
demands of agriculture must be heard, and
that the rule of wheat rinjrs and railroad cor
porations in the state must be
CHECKED BY LEGISLATION,
gnd that no person be sent to the legislature
who does not indorse this and the other reso
lutions adopted by this convention.
Resolved, That we demand a fair rate on
the railroads,so that they will make a reason
able interest on the actual capital invested
above current expenses, but not one penny of
tribute on watered stock;
Resolved, Th*t the legislature Itself regu
late the tariff of the railroads without the use

Resoived, That the practice of dealing in
irhat are commonly called futures is de
moralizing to society, and that we request
the legislature to prohibit it.
Resolved, That we demand legislation tbat

make good the full value of their wheat
checks as to grade and weight at the terminal
Rnsolved, That we endorse the prlncipels

Republican party, and unions them the
GRANTING PENSIONS TO THE SOMHERB
of the late war, whereby they eau obtain
their pension money without the red-tape
policy. We heartily IsdOCM the appoiutmeat
of L. L. Baxter by Gov. L. F. Hubbard, as
judge of the Seventh judicial district, and
while sincerely believing in the wisdom of the
course pursued by tho state Democratic con
vention iv St. l'aiil in removing the selection
ot judges from partisan nominations, still wo
wish to express our eonldeaoe la the ability,
integrity and firmness of Judge Butter
during the time he has acted as judgo of the
Seventh judicial district.
The convention then passed a resolution
to go into executive session and the hall
was cleared of all save delegates. The
proceedings were secret, but it has come to
the surface that Judge Hand, representing
A. A. Ames, appeared by permission and
addressed the oonvention. He presented
A LETTKK FKOM DR. AMKS
in which he said that it was believed that
it would be for the best interests of the
party in the state at large that no nomina
tion for congress be made in the Fifth dis
trict. He disclaimed any design or dispo
sition to dictate to the convention, but upon
consideration it was thought best by those
familiar with the political situation that a
nomination in this district would bran to
the injury of the state ticket. The con
vention deliberated with evident interest
and accepted the advice of the managers
of the gubernatorial canvass and passed
the following resolutions:
Kesolved, Tbat we deem it inexpedient at
this time to make a nomination for congress.
Resolved, That Hon. K. & WUUmob, of
Polk county, enjoys tbe full confidence aud
respect of the Democrats of the Fifth con
gressional district, and that he would be the
unanimous choice of this convention as our
candidate for congress if we regarded a nom
ination at tbis time as desirable.

Washington*, Sept. 14. — A member of
the national Democratic committee pointed
out a paragraph to your correspondent to
day, in which the statement is made that
Mr. Kelly and Mr. Doran would not sup
port Dr. Ames in the present campaign.
He smiled as he said:
The fellow who wrote that ought to be ac
quainted with Mr. Kelly, as he lives within a
stone's throw of him. But he doesn't know
him at all. Mr. Kelly is a Democrat. 1 know
him. I cannot say anyttiiivr as to Mr. Doran,
tor I have only had the pleasure of meeting
with him once. But Mr. Kellv is a Dem
ocrat. Dr. Ames is the candidate of the
Democratic party. That ought to be a suffi
cient answer to all that sort of journalistic
And the gentleman condensed a great
deal of truth into those few words.

Washington. Sept. 24. — What with
Gilman, Gill Me, Giltillan and Gibbs, the
Repifol ican party seems to be hanging by
the Gills in the midst of the Gibes of the
public. The Winona man has run so fast
as to Windhiin, and get him out of the
race. The Republican campaign commit
tee is not looking hopefully towards Min
nesota from this locality. There seems to
be a better chance of Democratic success in
Minnesota this year than there has been
since the war. The Democracy being
united and the Republican party being de
moralized and out of available timber; and
the prohibition people being determined to
break the backbone of what is laft of the
grand old party, there seems to be no rea
son why the Democratic ticket, state and
national, should not come out away ahead
in the contest It certainly savors of des
peration when new scones are ordered for
the mud mills, and fresh dirt is poured into
the hoppers every day by the smut tenders

Rice Lake, Wis., Sept. 24.— James
Bracklin. of this city, who received the
unanimous nomination for congress on the
Democratic ticket from the Eighth district,
will forward his letter of acceptance to the
chairman of the convention this afternoon.
In it he clearly defines his position, if
elected, on the tariff, liquor and pension
laws; that he will studiously labor for a
regulated reduction of the former on com
modities necessary to the laboring classes.,
of which he is one. He believes that
every honorably discharged Union soldier
should receive a pension that applies for
one, and that laws should be passed at
once governing the same. Mr. Baacklin
is without a doubt the strongest candidate
that could have been selected, and his
nomination and acceptance is a pleasant
surprise to thousands of Republicans and
Prohibitionists, who find Mr. Price, the
Republican candidate, distasteful, and who
will cast their votes lor Mr. Bracklin on
general principles. A thorough canvass
will be made by Mr. Bracklin of the dis
trict, and the Globe in giving the result
after the close of the polls can record the
triumph of the people's choice over the
professional office seeker, William Y.

Oftltkosh Terribly Trounced.
Something over a thousand people were
in the seats at West Seventh street park
yesterday afternoon when, a few minutes
before the hour for calling the game, Um
pire Tindill stepped to the plate, armed
with two new regulation league balls, and
ordered the Oshkosh and St. Paul teams to
get ready for play. Capt. Kinzie. of the
Oshkosh team, walked over to the players'
bench and told Umpire Cavanaugh he must
umpire the game. Both umpires got into
position and both captains got into a row.
Tindill flashed a paper with Secretary
Quin's signature to it triving him authority
to umpire. Then Cavanaugh rushed over
to his coat and drew forth a document
signed by the same official ordering him to
umuire the game. Here was a pretty
kettle of fish. Oshkosh insisted on having
Cavanaugh and St. Paul Tiudill. Man
ager Barnes asserted that Cavanaugh
had beaten him out of three
games on the Wisconsin trip and he
would not have him otiiciate on the St.
Paul grounds. He produced a letter from
Treasurer Putnam, of Eau Claire, who
said Cavanaugh's work was so unsatis
factory to Eau Claire on Wednesday that
McGinley's services were secured on Thurs
day. Mr. Barnes then ordered a policeman
to eject Cavanaueh from the grounds, but
when the copper started out with his man
the Oshkooh players followed, declaring
they would not play without their umpire.
Umpire Tindill called the game 9 to 0 in
favor of St. Paul, and Umpire Cavanaugh
9too in favor of Oshkosh. The Oshkosh
TOOK THEIR CARRIAGES
to leave the grounds. Manager Barnes at
this moment said he would allow Cavan
augh to umpire rather thau disappoint the
crowd, although he was entirely opposed to
his acting in that capacity. The game
then proceeded, St. Paul going to bat, Dur
yea and Sage being the home battery,
and Harper and Gasttield for the visitors.
St. Paul scored two runs in the tirst in
ning on two bases on balls, a wild pitch and
errors by short and catcher; three more in
the third ou hits by Wilmotand McShannic,
aud on errors by center field and catcher;
three more in the fourth on two bases on
balls, a three- bagger by Cleveland, aud an
error at short; another in the seventh on
hits by Adams and O'Brien and a steal, and
three more in the ninth on hits by McShan
nic and Tray, errors at first aud second
and fielder's choice. Oshkosh scored only
in the second inninsr, when Hillery and
Hoy crossed the plate on a
double and two singles, with a
passed ball sandwiciied between.
After this but two hits were made and but
throe men reached first base. The oatting
of the home team was heavy, Cleveland
hitting the ball high over the left-field
fence, O'Brien getting' three fine singles
and McShannic two. As usual, \VHmot
led in the run-getting, making the circuit
the first three times at bat. The fielding
of the whole team was excellent. The
visitors got very little show at the bat, the
last four in the list being called to the plate
but three times each. Their fielding, too,
was wretched, fifteen errors being clurged
up against them. GasttiekTs throwing to
second, however, was greatly admired.

The Minneapolis Team.
The Minneapolis team returned yesterday
from Milwaukee strengthened by the addi
tion of Pickett, the late third baseman for
the Cream City. It was then explained
why Wednesday's game was given to Min
neapolis. In the fifth inning Milwaukee
had finished its half and Minneapolis, with
two men out, had two men on bases. As
rain was threatened, these men started
home, runniug off the line and missing the
home plate. The umpire declared them
out, as thoy desired, and the game ended,
five innings having been played and the
score standing 3 to 3 in favor of Minneapo
lis. The game on Thursday, which Mil
waukee won, was an exhibition affair and
does not count. The corrected record gives
Minneapolis 33 games won and 39 lost.
During this month the Minneapolis team
has won 8 games and lost 3, the best record
made. It is reported that Shreve, the Mil
waukee pitcher, will join Minneapolis and
pitch in the St. Paul-Minneapolis game on

Eau Claike, Wis.,Sept. 24.— The game
to-day between Eau Claire and Milwaukee
promised to be stubbornly contested, but
the way the Eau Claires got on to Shreve
in the first inning soon dispelled that idea.
Burdick. on the contrary, proved a puzzle
to the Milwaukees all through the game.
Some very costly errors were made by Ban
ning and McCullom, when men were on
bases, in throwing wild. Some very bril
liant fielding was dnno by Milwaukee,
especially that of Behel and Isaacson. The
same clubs play here again to-iuorrow.
Both leave to-morrow evening for Milwaukee
to play there on Sunday, which will be the
closing game of the season for Milwaukee.
The Milwaukees will be joined by Mc-

That Canadian Treaty*
Washington, Sept. 24.— The treaty with |
Canada, which comes in an Ottawa dis- j
patch of the 33d inst. , has no foundation in
fact, so far as the allegedjdetails are stated
to have been submitted to President Cleve
land and Secretary Bayard and agreed j
upon. No negotiation for any treaty with
Great Britain on the part of the Uuited
States has been entered upon since the
convention, which was laid before the sen
ate at the lasc session and was left unacted
upon. It is within the limits of possibility.
Assistant Secretary of State Porter says,
that a project for a suggested convention
amendatory of the treaty of 1818 may have
been forwarded by the British colonial
office to the Canadian ministry for sugges
tions, but no credence is attached to the
statement purporting to give the test of its
provisions. The further statement that
modilications of detail have been tele
graphed in cipher by Sir John A. Mac Do
nald to the British minister here is purely
i maginary aud untrue. The British am
bassador does not receive instructions or
suggestions from colonial authorities.
INDIGNATION AT GLOUCESTER.

'The new treaty means nothing but reci proc

the fishing iudustry of the country would be

just what Gloucester fishermen have been

Washington, Sept — The repre
sentatives of the medical and surgical so
cieties of the United States met at the Army
Medical museum to-day and effected a tem
porary organization by the election of Dr.
Bussy, of this city, chairman. The work
was all preliminary, as the subject in hand
was to consider the advisability of arrang
ing for regular meetings in Washington of
the various medical and surgical societies.
A proposition was submitted that it was
desirable to form a congress of the
societies represented. It was decided
to form such a congress and it
was agreed to- constitute an executive com
mittee of one representative from each so
ciety of the union favoring the project, and
that this committee should decide the time
lor meetings in Washington; also that at
these regular meetings the principal order
of business should be an address by the
president and then the presentation of orig
inal essays for discussion. It was decided
that all meetings shall be held in Washing

Washington. Sept. 24. — It is learned
that the president will not appoint a chief

army until after the return of the secretary
of war. No appointmens of a disbursing
clerk of the war department to succeed the
late Dr. Lawton, will be made until the
secretary returns. It is very possible, how

a fourth-class clerk in the quartermaster

Disagreement With Cuba.
Washington, Sept. 24. — Consul Gen
eral Williams, at Havana, in reply to an in
quiry from the secretary of state, confirms
the report that the Madrid government has
sustained the Cuban authorities in their re
fusal to carry out the treaty agreement as
it is understood in this country, making
mutual concessions to American and Span
ish vessels trading between Cuba and this
country. This will probably lead to a cor
respondence between this government and
the Spanish authorities to ascertain what
the latter mean, and ultimately to the an
nulment of the arrangement or the con
clusion of a new one.

He Has Not Yet Decided on Seeking
New York, Sept. 24.— 1u conversation
with a Tribune reporter, Congressman
Abram S. Hewitt said in regard to his can
didacy for representative in the Fiftieth
I cannot say as yet whether I shall be a can
didate or not. There may be conditions under
which 1 might accept a renomiuation. Ido
not really see that there id any reason why I
should go back, however. I have been there
twelve years endeavoring to do what 1 be
lieved was for the general good, but when I
contemplate the result of my work 1 am forced
to admit that I have been a failure. It seems
really that 1 have no intluence whatever."
To what do you attribute this results" was
asked. "Is it due to the ignorance of mem
bers as to the real needs of their country 1"
'A3h ! well, I don't like to call it ignoraaee,"
replied Mr. Hewitt, "yet, of course, there is
more or less ignorance manifested when it
comes to dealing with the greater questions
which pertain to business and commeicial ad
vaucetuent. But, in my opinion, this condi
tion of things is largely due to the individual
jealousy of the leaders. Each oue appears to
be afraid that the other will reap some per
sonal advantage if certain propositions are
carried forward, and hence this clashing of
interests. Now, it is all wrong to continually
advertise the Democratic party as absolutely
in favor of free trade. It is
HOT A FBEE T BADE FABTT,
and in its platform is declared distinctly that
while it favored the reduction of taxation, it
did not propose to interfere with any busi
ness which had been created by protective
duties, and which had not yet outgrown their
necessity, but there are many branches of
business in which protection is no longer
needed, and to which the imposition of duties
on raw material is a positive injury. I did
what I could to secure the reformation,
in this direction, but finding it 'to
be impossible to secure action upon
any bill which undertook to regulate
duties, I finally prepared a measure dealing
simply with the administration of the cus
toms law. This bill was unanimously ap
proved by the committee of ways and means,
but Mr. Morrison, the chairman, Insisted
upon attaching 1 it to his bill, involving a
change of duties, and Mr. Randall did pre
cisely the same thing in his bill.. The result
was that it never reached the house, and
never had consideration as a separate
measure. I was powerless to secure such a
section, but I think that the speaker might,
if he had beeu so disposed, have done much
to insure action. He is a man of eminent in
telligence and judicial fairness, but he seems
averse to taking a positive part in, shaping
legislation. So far as lam concerned, I had
to confess that I lacked the influence and
energy necessary to force action upon a
measure which all parties agreed ought to
have passed. It is in consequence of this
failure chiefly that I am compelled to recog
nize the fact that my day has passed, and
that the commercial interests of New York
ought to have a representative of more force
and greater activity to achieve results." .

The Big PackiDgr Firms Protest Against
the Sale of Apparently Healthy
On the Ground That Such a Course
Would Greatly Damage
But They Dodge a Proposal That The
Buy and Burn the Suspected
Chicago's Cattle Plague.
Chicago, Sept. Messrs. .Pearson
ana MeChesney, of the live stock commis
sion which has been investigating the
pleurc-pneumonia in this city for the past
three or four days, had a consultation this
forenoon with the officials of the Stock
Yards company. It was learned that the
conclusion reached was that all beef which
passes the proper inspection and was pro
nounced to be not diseased might be sold.
The live stock commission intimates that it
fully expects that within a week a quaran
tine against Chicago beef will be declared
by the states of lowa and Wisconsin, and
that some such action is contemplated is
evident by the presence in this city of the
live stock officials of the states named.
Pearson said in answer to a question as to
what would be done with the cattle: "We
intend to have every one of them slaught
ered, and we will make a separate inspec
tion of the lungs of each of the animals.
Those whose organs show signs or pleura
will be burned up, but the others will be
SOLD FOE BEEF
for whatever is bid for them." At a con
ference between members of the live stock
commission and officials of the stock yards
this morning, Mr. Pearson said to the stock
yards representatives that the commission
ers had decided to kill all the cattle now in
the |Phcenix and Schufeldt distilleries (over
two thousand head), and that on the post
mortem examination all diseased cattle
would be cremated and all healthy sold to
the highest bidder. . President Sherman, of
the stock yards, said that millions of dollars
would be lost to the packing interests of
Chicago if the report went out that beef
from the infected distilleries, healthy or
not, was being shipped from Chicago. Mr.
Pearson then informed the gentlemen that
they had only $49,000 with which to com
pensate the owners of healthy cattle and
that if none of the healthy beef wa3
utilized the state would be at an expense
of double that amount. He then suggested
to the stock yards men that they buy up
the healthy beef and help the coinissioners
out of the dilemma. He said the com
mission would exhaust the appropriation
in hand. No decisive answer to the propo
sition was given. The commissioners late
