Alaska's Governor Turns Over Some
of the Becent Appointments to
Gov. and Mrs. A. P. Swineford, 1 of
Alaska, were at the Ryan yesterday. They
arrived early in the morning, as the gov
ernor intended to take the train for the
coast in the evening. He concluded to stay
over until to-day, however, as he would be
detained a week anyway, whicii he discov
ered on glancing at the time card. He will
go to Portland and stay there a day. and
then take steamer to Victoria, B. C.
The governor looks robust and talks vigor
ously, notwithstanding he lias been on three
weeks sick leave at his home, at Marquette.
Mich., since leaving Washington. While
at Washington he worked without rest for
his territory, and succeeded in having the
educational and Indian appropriations in
creased, and obtaining better naval service.
He has also carried . through a measure
which was much needed . by
Bathers. Now, their mining claims
are to be recognized without
and trouble. He also succeeded in getting
a bill for a territorial government and ex
tension of the land laws favorably reported
upon by tho committee, but it was never
reached. A court-martial for Lieut. Com
mander Nichols was obtained, and the
appointment of a new collector of customs
was secured. Regarding tlie appointment
of John McCafferty as collector. Gov.
Swineford talked without concealing his
bitter opposition to the man.
"It is the general talk In the territory— and
the newspapers say so too — that be is -Sus
pect No. I.' of the Phoenix Park murder."
said he. "Why, he villainously assailed Judge
Dawsou, without any cause whatever, and
he is the man who incited the mob to attack
the Chinese on Douglas island. I wanted to
get Peter French suspended, but I would
prefer fifty Frenchs to one McCatferty.
When we first got news by boat
of McCafferty's appointment nobody would
believe it. Everybody laughed and said it
must bo a hoax. I went to Washington and
saw President Cleveland and acquainted tbe
president with what tho man's character
really was. The president laughed and said
it was the second mistake lie had made re
specting Alaska since assuming the adminis
tration. I told him I would prefer to have
bis name withdrawn from the senate. The
president told me to go and look at the papers
.n Secretary Thompson's possession. 1 went,
and among a dozen applications McCafferty's
Fas the only one that
HAD SO CHARGES
filed against it. Why the man had indoise
ments all tho way from Maine to California —
jood men, too: men like Gen. Pat Collins,
congressman of Massachusetts; Congressmen
Moran, of Virginia, and Henly, of California.
I went to Gen. Collins. He said he had known
McCafferty about twenty years or so ago, and
only casually at that, but he always thought
he was a pretty good fellow. Moran thought
he was all right, and Henly did also.bat many
of the men who indorsed him did not have tbe
least idea that he would have been appointed,
«>r they wouldn't have given him their names.
Well, I went back to Sect etary Thompson
again, and then you should have seen the
letters against* him pouring in. There was
one from'Beriah Brown, of Seattle. W. T.",
giving him fits. The president concluded to
withdraw his name. When he asked me who
1 would like to have appointed, 1 said .any
body that Postmaster General Vilas would
indorse. Gen. Vilas recommeuded Arthur K.
Delaney, of Wisconsin, who was in the Bragg
fight. So Delaney was appointed, and is now
only waiting for the approval of his bond.
He is an excellent man.. He isn't afraid of
anyboyd and Is a good lawyer.
"As for Nichols, the naval commander.
Nichols made his boasts that he was going
down to Washington to make it hot for me.
He said I had too much of the big head,
md wanted to run things all my own way.
Three of the charges he brought against me
.he president and Secretary Whitney knew
personally to be lies, and they thouirht the
fourth obe'must be a falsehood also upon
general principles. The way he has made it
hot for me Is that I have succeeded in getting
a -martial for him. He is charged with,
conduct unbecoming- an officer, with using
lis vessel for his own private purposes, and
with refusing to co-operate with the gov
ernor. When the mob went over to Douglas
Island they took eighty-four Chinese and
threw them into two little five-ton sloops. Then
tbey threw in a few bags of rice and started
from Juneau to Wrangle. They wero only
tifteen miles out frou Juneau when I went to
.Nichols and requested him to set out after
them. He had the Pinto in command. Three
times I went to him with a request, and each
time he had some excuse. It was his duty to
go and my duty to ask him to do so. The new
'•ommander, Newell, is an excellent gentle-
Biian. The Thetus is to come up, uudei- the
command of Lieut. Emery, a first-class gentle
man, too, who in Grant's time commanded
the junketing expeditions. This administra
tion not needing any such expeditions,
Emery applied for active service and was
•placed in command of the Thetus. He looks
* little dudisb at flrst sight, but he is a good
officer and an excellent fellow. He doesn't
need to come all the way up to Alaska. He
has a wife
WORTH ABOUT $2,000,000,
and four pretty children, and besides he -has
.one of the finest residences on Connecticut
avenue. Lieut. Emery was out. with the
•Greeley expedition. I expect to take a sail
in the Arctic with him this summer.
•'But if yon want to know anything about
McCafferty go to Harry Davis or Passenger

Services Were Held in the Sweden
boreiau Church on Market Street*-
A Church With a History.
The New Jerusalem or Swedenborgian
society met for the last time in their church
on Market street, between Fourth and
Fifth streets, yesterday morning, the lot
having been sold recently. Rev. E. C.
Mitchell, the pastor, delivered an Interest
ing sermon, giving a brief history of the
society's career since its organization, about
fourteen years ago. He took for his text
Psalm 1v.— 19:
"Because they have no changes, therefore
they fear not the Lord."
The pastor spoke substantially as fol
There are changes of various kinds in lifo.
Chango Is written on everything human, the
Lord alone being perfect and unchangeable.
Our whole life 19 a series of changes in the
process Of development. Tho body changes
from a mere beginning to full devel
opment. Circumstances are always
changing and our connection and
relation with them -. constantly change
and even the earth on which wo stand always
changes. Day and night and various seasons
follow each other. Mentally we are always
changing. We are born ' utterly ignorant,
gradually become acquainted with the world
about us by successive changes, till the mind
of an infant becomes the mind of a man. To
day we meet for the last time in this building
which has been sold and must be given up.
We have been ten and a half years worship
ing here. Next Sunday wo shall movo into a
temporary home in the rooms of the Masonic
lodgo on Dayton and Western avenues. Then
we shall proceed to building our now church
at the corner of Virginia and Selby avenues,
which we hope to occupy in the fall. The
old building we leave has quite a
HISTORY OF ITS OWN.
It was built thirty-eight years ago for the
First Methodist church, and of . the first kiln
of brick, made in Minnesota. It was then
used as a public hall; then the hall of the St.
Paul Academy of Natural Sciences; then as
a drill room for the militia. We bought it in
the summer of 18TG and fitted It up for a
church again. .We have ourselves many
memories clinging about it. A few who came
here with us have gone into the other world
and some have removed to other places.
Many new persons have como among us. It
has been with this congregation as with all
other human things, a succession of changes.
While we have been in this building we have
learned many, things In life. We have had
many experiences here. Whatever they may
have been of good and true and useful mem
ories let us carry them with us to our
new church home. If there is anything
unpleasant in our memory connected with
this building, let us leave it behind among
the old things that are not worth carrying
away. Personally I have been happy in this
old building. I have received many kind
nesses from all of jou, and I have had the
inexpressible pleasure of knowing that I have
been of some use. Changes have come to us
all during our stay in this church. Some of
us came in here in comparative youth, and
we shall go out somewhat gray. There is
scarcely a family that remains as it was
when we came here. Some, have increased
and some have diminished, but we have
; learned to acknowledge that the Lord has
been good to us all, that He has in every way
kept all of His promises. Our experience has
confirmed our belief in a divine providence
over all things in our life. Though we have
A SMALT. FAMILY
in the church, we have been more and more
convinced that the doctrines of the New
Jerusalem church present the grandest,
clearest, most rational and comprehensive
views of all religious objects. I can not feel
satisfied to leave this old building,
with all its memories, without em*
phatising to you the goodness of the Lord and
the beauty of holiness. As we go out from
this scene of ten years church life, let mo af
fectionately say: "I have been young and
now am old, yet have 1 not seen the righteous
forsaken nor his seed begging bread."
"Praise ye the Lord."
The plans and specifications have not yet
been made for the new church, and it is not
yet known how expensive an edifice will be
erected. The old site sold for 310,000, and
the new site cost §0,000. This leaves §4.000
on hand for building purposes, and the so
ciety is undecided as to what course to pur
sue. At any rate the matter will be pushed
and the new church ready for occupancy as
soon as possible.
AN . BESTING RELIC.
A File of a Newspaper Published
When George Washington was
An interesting and valuable relic of i the
journalism of the last century is in the pus
session of Chalweil Knox, of St. Paul.
It, consists of a complete copy of tlie files
of Green leafs' New York Journal; pub
lished in New York city, for the year 1790.
The paper was a semi-weekly publication,
four pages, and contained during the year
many matters of news, that have become a
part of the history of this country. There
was no telegraphic news, of course, and
there were but few paragraphs of local
news, the pages being tilled with correspond
ence on political objects for the most part.
In the issue of Sept. 23, 17%, appears the
farewell address of President George Wash
ington, the document bearing the date of
Sept. 17, so that it was but six days from
its delivery until it appeared in the news
paper. This addi ess contains about';* the
same amount of reading matter as would
fill five columns of the Globk set in its or
dinary type. Another number contains tne
treaty negotiated with England by John
Jay, which was a trifle older news When it
was published, as the treaty bears the date
of Nov. 19 of the preceding year. 1795.
The issue of Oct. 7 contains the startling
information that '-the Italian war is clos
ing." which piece of news is received forty
one days after its publication in the London
Express. The paper announces that it
stops its press to give this foreign news.
The complete ruin of the Austrian army in
Italy and the loss of -21.000 Austrians killed
and taken, and that peace is at hand.
The paper contains nothing In the shape
of editorials, though the correspondents
seem to have been given leave to roast any
one that differed with them on political
topics. A correspondent • who does not
sign his name has a communication ad
dressed to "George Washington, President
of the United States." in which the writer
has the assurance to criticise some of the
acts of the father of his country. He
closes the communication in the following
Weighing your characteristics In the scales
of unerring truth, I do not wish them.
They would truly be a suspicious trib
ute. Give me but your sensibility,
it is all I claim. But, sir.
Heaven is not more distant from hell than
the opinions and feelings of my fellow citizens
are from yours. Bodies propelled by infinite
forces in opposite directions will not in an
eternity be further asunder.
The papers are bound and are yellow
with age. They are held of great value by
THE TWO ABMIES
That Arc Laying siege Against the
.Sinners of the Saintly City.
'.[ A great many people make no distinction
'whatever betweeii the Gospel army aiid the
Salvation army, but suppose them to be
two of a kind. This lamentable ignorance
is so general that a few weeks agon morn
ing paper, in the effort to chronicle the ar
rest of the Salvation army for inarching in
the streets, laid the disgrace at the door
of the Gospel army.
They are two distinct and separate organ
izations, and have about as little love for
each other as the most orthodox congrega
tion has for the adherents of other creeds.
Both armies had their start in Europe, the
Salvationists introducing themselves first
in this country in 1881, and the Gospel
army making its " first appearance
in America in 1884. Gen. Booth is at the
head of the Salvation army and Rev. Mr.
Baxter, of New York, is the chief of the
Gospel army. Missionaries •of both these
organizations first came to St. Paul in
January last, and both armies have made a
continuous attack with the hope of captur
ing souls since then.
The Gospel army rents the hall just op
posite the Globe and formerly occupied by
the dime museum. The work is at present
in charge of Capt. Seray and his wife and
Miss Emma Brown, the latter rejoicing in
the title of '-The Nightingale." These
three give their whole time to the work and
are assisted iv the services

Speaking of the work in St. Paul, 'Capt.'

Wo think we have been very successful
here. Of course wo can do : nothing without
1 God, but we have given ourselves to His
work and have been the means, with His di
vine aid, of bringing more than a hundred
souls to a confession of their sins and to see
the light. Wo propose to stay Here as long as
, we can get people to como to our meetings,
and the Lord blesses our work. Our audi
, ences are continually increasing.

The Last of the Series Given in
market Hull— A Benefit on Easter
The sixth and last concert of the season
by the Seibert orchestra, yvas given at '■
Market hall yesterday afternoon. The j
audience, though not a large one, appeared
to be an appreciative one, and the concert
was a thoroughly enjoyable one. Mr. Sei
bert is now arranging for a benefit concert
to be given at Market hall on Easter Sun
day. As to the success of the venture Mr.
Seibert says, in a published announcement:
■ The results of concerts this wintei have
been very scant. . If it was not for the mis
sion and principle allotted to the orchestra, it
would hardly pay to undergo all the labor In
bringing out those concert programmes for
the little recognition they have received from
the music lovers of this city. As fault find
ing is not our hobby, we will say: Schwamm
darueber! Nothing will discourage us for
future action; we shall catch on to you
sooner or later, if we are long winded enough!
We may ask a sort of complimentary benefit
for the boys on Easter Sunday, which should
be freely granted to them. The expenses for
these concerts have been largely in excess of
those formerly given, and we would welcome
a liberal response to even up our accounts.
The time and talents of the members have
been freely and cheerfully given all through
this winter; any other organization but ours
you may have succeeded in freezing out dur
ing the past cold winter in this big Market
hall, but we a c alive yet and kicking and
will continue to exercise our privilege to live
on for many seasons to come. So accept our
invitation for the finale and benefit concert
at Market hall, 3 p. m., Easter Sunday, April

A Nuisance on the Hill.
To the Editor of the Globe. .
1 would like to ask if there is a law prohib
iting the depositing of ashes and all the
refuse from the kitchen on private property'- j
If there is a law, why don't the health officer j
or some one with authority put a stop to such I
things? I refer to the vacant ground on the
corner of Arundel street and Dayton avenue,
which has been used for a dumping ground
for the past two years. There you will find I
a collection of dead cats, some dead chickens,
tin cans, sewer pipe, rotten apples, spoiled
cod fish, and sometimes there is a dead dog
thrown in for variety. It appears to be the
catch-all for the hill. The attention of tin
police has been called to it more than once,
but without effect. The people living in that
locality arc justly indignant over the imposi
tion, for such it certainly is — there were times
last summer when they were compelled to
close their windows as the odor was so offen
sive. Why do the city officials allow such
things to exist? They should see thu it is filled
up or kept clean. St. Anthony ■___,__

.lire in" a i-rinon. ... .'-.'".",-
Jacksox, Mich., 'March* 2*5.* — Fire was
discovered in a four-story building inside
of the 'prison; walls at 10 o'clock. The
origin of tiie lire is supposed to be spon
taneous combustion. The building was
completely destroyed, with all its contents.
Then the end of the long two-story
building on the west .side was also
nearly destroyed. The lire was under
control about 11:110. As soon as the lire
was discovered extra 'guards- were placed
inside the cell biocKs and every precaution
taken to prevent a stampede of the prison
ers. They remained quiet, very few mov
ing their bunks. It is impossible to esti
mate the extent of the damage as vet. The
sparks from the prison tire caught in the
old cattle and sheep sheds on the fail
grounds and all on the : north side of the
grounds were burned. -They were mostly .*
old dilapidated structures and the damage
was slight. -
