And Takes the Occasion to Give His
Views on the Tariff and Labor
Republicans Have Made a I*Ut <>*
Their Speakers for the Cam
Doings of the Unites States Courts-
Social Events— Summary of
His Honor Accepts.
Hon. Edmund Rice yesterday made for
mal acceptance of the nomination as con
gressman from the Fourth district of Min
nesota, tendered him at the convention held
in Minneapolis. The committee, consisting
of Hon. E. W. Durant, Hon. P. H. Kelly
and lion. E. M. Wilson, formally notified
Mayor Rice on Oct. t» of his nomination in
the following words:
In obedience to the direction of the late
Democratic oongreMiaaal convention of the
Fourth district of Minnesota, we have the
honor and pleasure of announcing to you
that you were unanimously and enthusiastic
ally nominated as the candidate for congress
oi the Democracy of said district, and we
respectfully and earnestly request your ac
ceptance of such nomination.
Mayor Rice at once, prepared a letter of
acceptance, which he finished yesterday
morning. In it he takes occasion to speak
on some of the issues of the present at
some Length. His letter is in the following
words which will be read with interest not
only by Democrats but by all legal voters:
St. Paul, Oct. 7— Hob. E. W. Durant, Hon.
P. 11. Kelly, Hon. Eugene M. Wilson, Gen
tlemen: I have your letter of the 6th inst. in
forming we of my unanimous nomination
as the candidate for congress of the Democ
racy of the Fourth congressional district of
Minnesota by the late Democratic congres
sional convention, and requestinsr my ac
ceptance of the same. When solicited to be
come a candidate lor a nomination, 1 perem
tonly declined, and discouraged the use of
my name by the convention in every way I
properly could. For personal reasons I be
lieved [ could not bring my mind to an ac
ceptance of the nomination, and thought
also that on the score of my age. I might
fairly claim exemption. After mature con
sideration, however, in the belief that if
elected 1 may be of some service to the peo
iile. I have decided, not without misgivings,
that I am not at liberty to decline it, and, for
the information of tho«3 who may feel in
terested in tLe views 1 entertain and who
might not otherwise learn them.l desire to add
?o;ne words touching the brief but clearly ex
pressed declarations of the platform, in which
1 cordially concur. To the people of this
state, at least, the question of a revision of
the tariff and the one affecting the just
claims of labor, are the most important issues
in the present canvass. The existing tariff
has been a grievous burden to the farmers
and wasre-workers, who comprise a
large portion of the consumers of arti
cles indirectly taxed 40 per cent, of their
value. This form of taxation is hid in the
price of the article, and the substance of the
purchaser disappears as If by a silent and
unseen hand, whereas, if the real amount of
the tux were marked in figures
BESIDE THE REAL VALUE
of the articles purchased, every one would
know how much he was being taxed for tne
support of the government and the aid he was
affording to so-called American manufactur
ers. He would at once know that he was pay
ing a more onerous tax than is exacted from
ny other civilized people on earth; and if it
were attempted to be raised in the form of state
and municipal taxation, which averages from
1 to 2 per cent, on real and personal property
at about ODe-half its value, the people would
'revolt and the law become a dead letter upon
the first attempt to enforce it. The tariff has
nearly doubled the cost of more than 4,000
articles consumed and used in this country.
It has increased the cost of railroads in this
state, as elsewhere, from 25 to 40 per cent.,
and their rates lor transportation of grain,
and other productions and passengers,corres
pondingly, and lessened to that extent the
number of railroads and mileage we should
otherwise have had. The great burden of
this tariff is placed upon the producer, con
sumer and wage-worker, instead of being
shouldered on real and personal property as
in state and municipal taxation. And the
federal treasury is not only plethoric with
money from this source, but is gorged with
an annual surplus of 100.000,000. Here is
to be found one great cause of the just com
plaints of the farmer and wageworker, who.
in proportion to what they consume, pay as
much tax as the non-producer and the non
laborer, however wealthy he may be.
The patience with which this had been borne
since our civil war has been astonishing, if
not sublime. In its most oppressive form it
was raised eleven times pending the war on
the assumption that it was necessary to main
tain our armies, and that when the war ended
it should be withdrawn. In this the people
cheerfully acquiesced. Twenty-one years
have elapsed and yet the promise has not
been redeemed. Manufacturing and other
supposed interests demand its retention. It
is not far to go to find the cause. A remedy
should now be applied by congress, with jus
tice and wisdom, however, and with as little
harm to invested capital as possible.
THE RIGHTS OF LABOR.
The rights of the wage worker are entitled
to legislative recognition. Labor in its mul
tiplied forms creates and gives employment
to the wealth of the civilized world, and in its
last analysis, upon labor devolves the pay
ment of all public debts and taxes. The iu
terests of labor, capital and property are re
ciprocal, and if every man were just and en
lightened there would be no cause of com
plaint. Serious disturbances, however, often
occur between employer and employes, and
to avoid this the latter call loudly for laws in
favor of arbitration and other remedial legis
lation against the oppression and injustice of
private and corporate employers. lam in
accord with them and in favor of all they ask
for their advancement and protection, if ob
tained by legal and peaceful means, but am
opposed — I believe in the main they are —
to all acts of violence or force or the invasion
Of the rights of property or persons. Their
moderation, wisdom, patience and united
action will enable them to effect such
changes in the laws and their administration
as are just and fair, and any other changes
would work injustice to themselves. The
power is in their own hands.lt lies in the ballot.
Further. I wish to ask the conservative men
of all parties if any harm would come to the
state by a change in its legislative or admin
istrative policy than has befallen the nation
by placing Mr. Cleveland in the presidential
chair? What evil* have sprung from his able
policy and his wise and economical adminis
trative reforms? In what consist the calam
ities which it was claimed were to befall, the
republic If he were elected? All interest in
his keeping are in good condition, and I be
lieve that all national and non-partisan citi
zens are satisfied that he is conducting the
affairs of the nation with wisdom and integ
rity. We approach, if we have not already
reached, a new era in our political affairs.
The great issues which convulsed the country
for half a century have been happily settled,
and the results embodied in the fundamental
law of the land. The important question now
is, how can the government be administered
so as to be the least burden and the greatest
benefit to all the laboring classes of our
people. One party insists that thi3 can be
accomplished only by continuing the high
taxes of the war period. The other that this
• can be done only by the reduction of this
taxation to the lowest revenue standard. To
this latter party I belong. Thanking you,
gentlemen, for the courtesy you have ex
tended to mc,;md the members of the conven
tion for their enthusiastic and generous ex
pressions of confidence, I am, most respect
i ally, your obedient servant.
THE COLUBED BRETHREN.
A IHeetinjr Called to Form a Repub
lican nib Proves to be a Demo
In response to a call for the purpose of
forming a Republican club, about seventy
five of the colored residents of St. Paul
assembled at the hall, at 382 Robert street,
last evening. Just before the meeting was
called to order, C. A. Sandstrom, candidate
for county auditor on the Republican
ticket, and five members of the Young; Men's
Republican club, properly labeled, filed into
the hall and were given front seats. E. P.
Wade, editor of the Western Appeal, called
the meeting to order and stated the object.
lie said he had rented the hall himself and
the meeting was not an Ames' meeting or
would not be turned into one. He had
learned from "Capt." Burger that an ef
fort would be made to capture the meeting
for Ames and Rice and he was a little
"leary" that this might be done. J. H.
Loomis and R. W. Evans were
laminated as temporary chairman.
Evans "peremptorily" declined and
Loomis was unanimously chosen chair
man arid Howard Green secretary.

W. 11. Parker said he noticed in the room
several who had quit the Republican party,
turned traitors, and were now pronounced \
Democrats. He moved that all those de
sirous of forming a Republican club sign .
their names to a roll. This was voted j
down by a vote of 18 to 28, amid cheers
and yells. A motion to appoint a commit
tee of live on permanent organization was
carried, but when the chairman started to
announce the vote, there was a deal of con
fusion, Samuel Washington object
ing to there being so much whis
pering between the chairman and
several of the members. Several of those I
appointed refused to serve, but finally
George Morton, Heury Wright, Thomas
Jefferson, William Williams and Mr.
Hardy accepted and retired. A Mr. Allen
said the colored citizens of Ramsey county
could not and would not support the con
gressional candidate on the Republican
ticket. Wade said undoubtedly the colored
people would pick their friends in this
campaign, but he was surprised to see sup
porters of Ames come into a Republican
uieetiu* and try to run it. Mr. Park«r
said the wheat should be separated from
the chaff in this meeting, and he offered a
motion that all those who did not
sigu the club roll be refused
the right to vote. There were,
be said, 1,000 colored voters in the county
and two-thirds of them would vote the Re
publican ticket. This statement called
forth loud applause from the members of
the Young Men's Republican club, who up
to this time had been of much assistance to
Wade in settling parliamentary questions
and coaching him on points of order. R.
W. Evans said every colored citizen had the
right to vote for whom he pleased. He did
not see how the colored voters could vote
for those now nominated on the Republican
ticket, who had made promises and broken
their word of honor given to the colored
citizens. The motion of Parker was voted
down, and the meeting grew livelier over a
series of resolutions introduced by John
Burgett, pledging the support of the
colored voters of the county to Ed-,
mund Rice for congress. Wade tried
to take the copy of the resolutions from the
table, but was prevented, and made an ex
cited harangue, in which he claimed Rice
was too good a man to be sent to
Washington, and that the policy of the
Democratic party was to trade off Ames in
order to elect congressmen in the First,
Third and Fourth districts. The Demo
cratic party, he claimed, was responsible
for forty colored representatives being kept
out of congressional halls. He moved to
lay the resolutions on the table, which was
done, and Rev. Bird Wilkin insisting on an
adjournment, the meeting adjourned.

Trades Assembly Candidates.
There was a very full attendance at the
Trades and Labor Assembly last evening,
and the time was all occupied in discussing
politics, and much of the discussion was
pretty lively. The meeting was quite
lengthy, and the result was the appointment
of a committee of ten to attend the Demo
cratic convention and ask for the following
For Clerk of the Court — M. F. Kain.
For County Commissioner — J. Daly.
For Representatives to the Legislature
Fourth ward, L. A. Normandin ; First ward,
Robert Newell; Fifth ward. A. L. Robinson.
The committee is composed of Messrs.

Pates and King.
Capt. Wood for Auditor.
A movement on the part of numerous
prominent Democrats to bring the name of
Captain J. D. Wood before the county con
vention as a candidate for auditor, came to
a head yesterday, and Capt. Wood's name
will be presented for that office next Tues
day. When asked by a Globe reporter if
he would accept the nomination if tendered
him, Capt. Wood indicated that he would.
A Challenge Issued.
W. B. Ladd, A. E. Wilson and C. A.
Wilson, a committee from the Central Pro
hibition club, of St. Paul, have issued a
challenge to the Young Metis' Republican
club, to meet the first named organization
for a joint debate on the temperance issues
involved in the Republican platform. In
this challenge the committee says it believes i
the policy of the party, according to its j
platform, is in direct conflict with the policy
and spirit of the Prohibition party; also,
that the claim that by Republican party
that it is entitled to the patronage of all
temperance people is false and misleading.
*> the Editor of the Globe:
A letter to the Globe from St. Cloud
charges that I had been bought by a promise
that I should, in the event of McGill's elec
tion, be appointed a railroad commis
sioner. This letter was undoubtedly the
cause of the little editorial, "A Pocket '
Patriot." I expect as long as I have any- i
thing to do with politics to be talked of to a j
certain extent, but "do not ' expoot any thins
but fair usage from you. It is because I do
not think that you want to misrepresent . me
tnat I now write you to say that there is not
the least truth in this rumor. McGlll has not
offered me anything, I do not expect any
thing and do not desire any office in that way.
I have never felt that I was under any special
obligations to the ticket, but do think that I
am under obligations to the 143 friends that
I had in the convention, and I am afraid that
they would consider it too rapid a conversion
if I should "so to bed a Republican and wake
up a Democrat." Please Bay In a conspicu
ous place in the Glows that I hare not been

THE NEW THEATER.
Wood, lite Theatrical Architect.
Gives a lew Hints ou Its Construc
A Globe reporter met J. M. Wood, the
theatrical architect, of Chicago, in the lob
bies of the Merchants hotel last " night, en
route to the Windy city, and elicited some
information concerning the theater to be
erected in this city and leased to Sackett &
"I can't give you the location," said Mr.
Wood, "for that will be a secret for some
time, but I will tell you that the theater will
be about the size of the Hennepin avenne
theater, now building in Minneapolis and
leased to Backett & Wig-gins. This theater
will, however, be entirely different from the
first-named structure — the architecture being
pure nioresque, with a succession
of boxes, miniature kiosks and a
general oriental tone of decoration.
The Ufoyer will be an open
court, with a balcony and art gallery annex
and the lobby will be in the sauio gorgeous
and rich style. It will certainly be a theater
full of quaint surprises and a perfectly
seated house. The interior will be fur

and carpets will be of Moorish designs. As

Done by l<css than a Quorum.
The West Side union has a by-law which
allows less than a quorum to transact busi
ness, subject to the approval of a subse
quent quorum. At last week's meeting
there was not a quorum, but several mat
ters were considered and acted upon. The
principal topic discussed was Mr. Dough
erty's preamble and resolution in regard to
reorganizing the board of public, works,
.which was submitted at a previous meeting.
After a good deal of discussion Mr. Dough
erty offered a substitute fir his former res
olution, and on motion of Mr. Campbell
the whole preamble, which recited occasions
where boards of public works in other cities
had acted improperly and illegally, was
stricken out and the resolution was adopted.
No other business of importance was trans
acted except to recommend the alderman to

One of those hard-working, reckless men
who take their lives in their hands and re
ceive more kicks than praise for their
bravery. THE BOSTON, St. Paul, is recog
nized Headquarters among Railroad Men
for all the goods they wear.
Notwithstanding the mild weather, we are
busy selling Winter Clothing to provident peo
ple who appreciate the fact that the cold
weather is bound to come, and wisely make
their purchases now, while our stock is com
plete. We advise all our customers not to de
fer purchasing their Winter Outfit until the cold
weather actually comes to stay, but to buy
NOW, while the assortment is the largest. Bear
in mind that our Fine Tailor-Made Clothing, while
equal to the most expensive made-to-order
goods, costs only half as much. We call es
pecial attention to one line of Sack Suits, not
that it is particularly cheap, but because it is
made expressly for gentlemen who wish an
extra heavy and warm Suit. This Suit is made
from a shaggy Imported Cloth, nearly black in
color. The Coat is lined throughout With
heavy Satin, and the back of the Vest is lined
with the same. The whole suit is made in our
best manner, and is just the Suit for a Minne
sota Winter. The lot is 3258; the price pei
Suit is $24 Ask to see this lot, or we will
send this Suit on approval to any part of the
West, and if not satisfactory it can be returned
at our expense.
Another thing we wish to be thoroughly un
derstood by everybody who knows the value
of money, and that is that our asssortment oi
Fall and Winter Underwear and Hats is not
only larger and more complete than any Fur
nishing or Hat House, but it is also 20 per cent,
cheaper. Buying the largest portion of our
Hats and Furnishings direct from the factory,
in case lots, enables us to retail these goods at
just about wholesale prices. Special attention
is called to our assortment of Young Men's
Trousers, in nobby and fashionable patterns.
These Trousers are cut, made and trimmed bj
the best tailors in New York City, and are ab
solutely perfect in fit and style.
