Blame is in danger.
A move is on foot to bounce him out
of the cabinet, and put Harrison in.
Harrison himself is engaged in the
problem of how to get Blame out, and
thousands of distinguished people the
nation over are busily working to the
In the houses, the offices and the
shops of the East everybody is encaged
m working out this latest puzzle craze
— "Blocksiof Five." It is a political puz
rie, In.t tt has no partisan feature.
Democrats, Republicans and Mug
wumps are alike swallowed up in the
craze for this ingenious little puzzle;
and even the Prohibitionists forget
their solemn duties, aud are worrying
their brains over the puzzle of how
to get Blame out and Harrison in. The
puzzle has readied St Paul, and In a
few days the furor will have extended
all over the Northwest. Everybody
will have -Blocks of Five" in his pocket,
putting in his spare time working Blame
out. It is patent to all that Blame is a
bigger man than Harrison, and is nearer
the center of the governmental ma
chine; the problem is to get him out,
and put him in the proper place in the
cabinet leaving Harrison snugly in the
vacated place. It is an administration
puzzle In the interest of governmental
reform, and will be worked upon by
every bod v.
The Globe will offer a prize of $25 to
the man, woman or child who can
work out the problem in the shortest
Buy the puzzle, and send In your
name, address and the time. The short
est time takes the $25.
THE '"BLOCKS OF FIVE"
Is a very simple nuzzle, but it requires
time and ingenuity to work it out. It
presents Blame snugly ensconced about
the White house, with Harrison on the
outside. The puzzle is to change their
respective positions, so as to get Blame
out. The puzzle is a little box of blocks,
which are to be worked about, without
lifting, until the problem is solved, lt
may take you two hours or it may take
five minutes, but all you have to do is to
get Blame out and send in the time to
the -Globe office. If your time is the
shortest you will get the 125. The di
rections are as follows:
1. Place the blue blocks in the form
of a square in the center so that they
read: "James G. Blame"; and place the
red and white alternately on the outside,
so that the red read: "Harrison." and
the white: "Cabinet," with the "$"
block as shown in the following cutt
3. Remove the plain white block from
the middle space, disclosing the White
3. Moving only one block at a time,
place J. G. Blame (blue blocks) out
among the Cabinet (white blocks), and
Harrison (red block?) In the position of
honor next to the White house.
4. Although in working the puzzle
the Cabinet blocks (white) will be dis
placed, when the puzzle is done they
must be found back in their regular po
sitions and the arrangement will be as
shown in the following diagram:
When yon can do It, send In your
name and address to the Globe, by
mail, mid if you can do it quicker than
anybody else, the $25 is yours. Within
a day or two everybody in St. Paul will
be working the "Blocks of Five," and a
great stiuggle will begin.
The beauty about the contest, too, Is
that the task set is so simple that a
BABY CAN DO IT.
It Is Intellectual. It is entertaining.
It is instructive. It is amusing.
~ It fairly fascinates.
Don't touch it unless yon want to be
enthralled. Don't fool with it unless
you bave made our will. Don't monkey
with Blame until you are solid with
Harrison, and then get behind the
Plumed Knight and shove him which
ever way you will.
Look out for "Blocks of Five" or It
will sandbag your complacency and rob
you of your judgment. It is seductive,
It is insidious.
It will make you laugh and It will
make yon cry. It is a delightful elixir
for fagged brains, and a sweet tonic for
all moments of weariness.
And yet ! Be careful of itl
Try to win the $25 if you can. but if
you tackle "Blocks of Five" at all make
up your mind to have fun with it— to go
at it for genuine pleasure— then you
will fill your nights and days with the
$erenest kind of enjoyment. ;;,
It will be surprising to find, within a
few days, how many persons of all de
grees are working this puzzle for the
an they get oat of it, and the Globe
STJ_SrD-A-"Y" ISSUE. " '"'•'■
will doubtless print some very amusing
returns. Stanford Newel, for instance,
will not compete fur the prize; neither
will Jim Hill, Gov. Merriam, Judge
Vanderburgh, Mayor Smith, Chris
O'Brien, A. 11. Wilder, A. B. Stickney
and other wealthy men, but they will
all be trying their best to get Blame
out. Even Blame himself is -said to
find the puzzle so attractive that be
wants to buy all that are on the market
and prevent other people from getting
hold of them. He is so fond of trusts, it
is presumed, that he wants to organize a
"Blocks of Five" trust, with hiinselt as
the head and front of it. But there are
-00.000 of these puzzles on sale in differ
ent parts of the country, and Mr. Blame
cannot corner the market.
A good way to do the "Blocks of
Five is to take several boxes home and
put the family to work upon them.
Place a watch on the table and see who
gets Blame out tbe quickest. Even
tbe baby can participate iv the con
test. . •
REGULARS AND volunteers.
Kelton Thinks They Should Be
Washington, Nov. 2.— The annual
report of Adjutant-General Kelton tothe
secretary of war was was made public
to-day. It deals largely with the mili
tia question. He recommends that
state encampments be of longer dura
tion—from ten days to two weeks. All
men called out, he says should be trans
ported, subsisted aud tented at the ex
pense of the state and general govern
ment, with a per diem allowance to offi-
I cers and enlisted men: and troops
! should not be forced to leave their homo
at their own expense, whether for in
struction or for actual service. He says
that the presence of regular troops at
the encampments of the national guards
of states, this year, appears to have
been a positive benefit. He recommends
that congress be asked to authorize,
on the application of a governor of a
state having an armed militia force of
not less than 5,000 men, the muster in
to tbe service of tbe United States for
a period of forty days of a battalion of
ten selected companies, of thirty men
each, made up from regiments of the
national guaid of that state, for the
purpose of serving with the United
States troops in one of the summer
camps of instruction west of the Miss
issippi river; the enlisted men
of this selected force, after such
muster and while on duty, to be
entitled to double the pay and allow
ances authorized by present laws to
volunteer forces called into service of
the government. The adjutant general
calls attention to the fact that forty
eight officers of the army, who have
been found incapacitated for active ser
vice, and recommended for retirement,
are now at their homes receiving full
nay while awaiting the final action of
the government in their cases. The
military service of the government, he
says, will be promoted by an act of con
gress removing all restrictions udon re
tirements. He recommends that the
compensation of army chaplains be
graded according to their usefulness
and zeal. He also recommends that the
act of congress of 1885 authoriz
ing the retirement of enlisted men, be
amended so as to provide for the retire
ment of enlisted men who have served
fifteen or twenty years, when, in the
opinion of the secretary of war, the ex
igencies of the service permit. He rec
ommends that at any time between tne
first and second year of the enlistment,
and when the command to which they
belong are not engaged in active mili
tary operations enlisted men may re
ceive their discharge on their own ap
plication, conditioned on the payment
of -noo. They should also have the
privilege of applying for discharge six
months prior to the expiration of the
third year of their enlistment, which
discbarge, unconditional, shall be
granted, unless the troops are engaged
in hostilities. _ *-,- : :■•:'

Chicago, Nov. 2.— The rumored pur
chases of extensive milling and elevator
property in the Northwest by a syndi

were afterwards sold. They have now
no treaty which requires the United

But It Cannot be Enforced.
Washington, Nov. 2.— Lyman E.
Enapn, the governor of Alaska, in his
annual report to the secretary of the in
terior, states that the number of natives
in the territory is about the same as
when the census of 1880 was taken, bat
he thinks that the next official enumer
ation will show an increase. The stories
about their dying, out he characterizes
as absurd. The white population, he
estimates, has increased, and now num
bers about 3,500. be says that the gov
ernment schools, the mission work of
the various religious denominations and
contact with the better classes of white
people are influences for good with tbe
natives. The governor calls attention
to the fact that under existing laws no
legal titles to land, except mineral lands
for mining purposes, can be secured by
any process whatever. lie dwells upon
the lack of. facilities for enforcing the
laws. He recommends thas Alaska have
a representative before congress, and
thinks the governor could perform the
duties of this position.

reconsideration was had, and the sub

to deliver the vessel upon the showing
made at the recent trial without
suffering the penalty for failure
to exhibit the horse power required by
the contract, or to make another trial,
with certain changes In the machinery
and pitch of the screw. The refusal of
the department to accept this alterna
tive proposition,' it is said, would relieve
the contractors of their liability to pay
the penalty due to lack of contract
horse power, and it was to determine
this question, if possible, that to-day's
conference was held. As a result of it
a telegram was sent to the contractors,
which Secretary. Tracey said he be
lieved would result in the acceptance
of the Charleston, but its terms were
not made public.

The men who have decided to invest so
large an amount in a theater for
St. Paul, are. perhaps, three of
the best known in the city,
Messrs. Oppenheim, Ealman and
Stickney. The decision to build
was reached yesterday after the project
had been carefully considered in all its
phases, and the announcement will
prove an extremely satisfactory settle
ment of the vexed question as to who
would build a theater, and when.
Messrs McElfpatrick & Son.oof New
York, who prepared the plans for tbe
Broadway theater in that City, the
Tremont opera house in Boston, and
the Chicago Opera house, have been
engaged on the plans for the
new theater for several weeks,
and will shortly submit them.
The capacity of the new bouse Is to bo
2,500, and tbe building will be entirely
of stone on the exterior. It has been
decided that the season Is too far ad
vanced to break ground for the building
this fall, but all material will be got on
the ground before cold weather sets in,
and construction begin with the first
signs of spring.
Mr. . Scott's selection as man*
ager will give universal satisfaction
as his ability is unquestioned, and bis
popularity unequaled by that of any
other manager in the West. Mr. Scott
will leave for New York city to-morrow
in his capacity as manager of the new
house, for the purpose of booking his
season's attractions. That a creditable
theater- will now be built is
an absolute certainty, and St. Paul
people may congratulate themselves
on the fact that there is nothing vision
ary about the present scheme, it is a go,
tbe money is up, aud the theater will be
built as quickly as practicable; r * *'•-- .
-. The new theater -will be. run on the
circuit plan with the Grand ' at ■ Minne
apolis, and Manager Conklin, of the
latter, will accompany Manager Scott

with them the fellows pounced upon
him, three of them holding him while a
fourth pounded him over the head with

The parties are at the bead of the lake

whether they will come to this side of

It depends largely upon the persuasive .
powers of leading citizens Interested.
With the turn affairs are taking at the
Flour City, some at least, of the most
successful operators will seek other lo
calities, .and with the success, which
has attended the establishment of the
Imperial mills have drawn the atten

indisputable advantages offered at the

now here mean business, and will de- -
