Hay Is To-Day Expected to
Swear Out the Long-De
And the Alleged Census Con
spirators May Be Landed
in a Cooler.
The St. Paul Delegation Will
Return Home Completely
Citizens to Meet and Devise
Means for Carrying on
the Good Work.
Nothing occurred in St. Paul yester
day in the Minneapolis census imbroglio.
Everybody is patiently awaiting the
return of the delegation from Wash
ington with the evidence. Senator Mc-
Millan, Capt. Castle and Mr. Cullen are
en route direct from Washington, and
Mr. Lawler and Mr. Munn are on the
road from Clinton, N. Y. They will all
reach St. Paul to-day, with the satis
faction of having accomplished abso
lutely everything that they had been
assigned by the citizens' executive
committee to do. They have secured an
order for the rigid prosecution of every
body charged with conspiring against
the census laws, and have succeeded
in getting the prosecution practically
out of the control of United States Dis
trict Attorney Hay. None of the local
committee received communication from
the delegation yesterday, nor did they
expect to. It is known to the delega
tion that everything has been fully re
ported in the papers, and therefore it
has been unnecessary for the delega
tion themselves to acquaint the commit
tee with occurrences from day to day.
A meeting of the citizens' committee
will be held to-day with Mr. Munn, Mr-
Lawler, Capt. Castle and the others,
and a definite plan for further action
will be arrived at.
WHAT WILL HAY DO?
Processes Will Probably Be Issued
Eugene Hay has everything at stake
in the coming hearing, it will be a
crucial test. If the prosecution fails to
make out a case Hay will feel himself
vindicated; but, on the other hand,
should a case sufficient to hold the de
fendants be made, Mr. Hay will be in a
still more embarrassing position. He
will, find it no easy thing to satisfactorily
explain his delay and why he urged
that there was an insufficiency of
facts; why he refused to act without in
structions from the attorney general,
and many other Utile things upon
which he has taken an attitude
in the controversy. In another
joint of view, "the best of it he can get
is the worst of it," in the vernacular of
the street, if he conducts the prosecu
tion. If the defendants are held he
will be censured by his neighbors of
Minneapolis; if the defendants are ac
quitted, he will be censured by the St.
Paul people on the score that lie failed
to make a vigorous prosecution. For
this reason it is believed that when the
federal government assigns counsel,
Mr. Hay will step aside and wash his
hands of the affair entirely. That is
precisely what the citizens' committee
want him to do, and for that very reason
Mr. Hay will be urged by the Minneap
olis people to stick to the case to the
The question which now exercises
the parties interested in the conflict is
before whom the processes that must
now be issued will be made returnable.
The sentiment in St. Paul favors Judge
Nelson, of the United States circuit
court, if he will consent to sit.
"I think Mr. Hay will issue the proc
esses to-morrow morning," said a mem
ber of the committee yesterday, "be
fore he receives further orders from the
department of justice. These special
orders surely cannot be viewed m the
light of a compliment to his discretion,
and Mr. Hay has political ambitions.
He is looking for other marks of dis
tinction through official preferment,
and it is. therefore to his interest to
make the most of every oppor
tunity he can find in the present
case to add a round to the lad
der upon which he expects
to scale tlie castle walls of fame. There
fore I believe Mr. Hay will issue the
warrants for the arrest of Stevens,
Dickey and the twelve enumerators who
have been mentioned," continued the
speaker. "I also believe Hay will pose
as the prosecuting attorney, if allowed
by Gen. Miller, in order that the glory
"He wants to issue the warrants so
that he can choose before what magis
trate they may be made returnable,"
observed another, who had listened at
tentively to the foregoing prognostica
tions and expressions of opinion. "It
would be very easy for them if they
were made returnable before Commis
sioner Odell, of Minneapolis," he in
sisted, with spirit. "Odell's sympathies
are known to Hay, and he could banK
on an acquittal."
"No, no!" interposed the first speaker
quickly. "Hay will never do that. He
may be peculiar, and his judgment may
be warped by local prejudice, -but
•Gene Hay is nobody's fool. He is head
strong, as his attitude before Commis
sioner McCafferty clearly demonstrates,
and he may be bold and daring, but he
would not be so foolhardy as to make
such a shameful move. "No, no!" he
Eursued with unction; "after that hot
eaded. foolish, inflammatory speech
that Odell vomited up at the Minneap
olis mass meeting Hay would not dare
bring the cases before him. It would
be suicidal. Gen. Miller would
pull him up with a sudden jerk
that would make his head swim. You
remember Hay did his utmost to have
the other cases transferred to Commis
sioner Spencer's court, and he is quite
probably still of the opinion that he was
when he made that fight before Com
missioner McCafferty. Queer as it may
seem, Mr. Hay indicated that he was
perfectly willing to proceed if he could
get that change of venue; but just as
soon as Commissioner McCafferty de
nied the motion for a change of venue
he moved for the continuance. That
motion was a checkmate. Judge Mc-
Cafferty could not continue the hearing
unless the federal officer would prose
cute, snd the motion was . granted,
throwing the case over two months.
No, it will not be Odell. He has shown
his hand, and he is net in it."

THE VOTE OP MINNEAPOLIS.
Will the Tribune Gently Speak It
The amount of . lying done by the
Minneapolis Tribune about the vote of
Daily St. PAUL Globe.
Minneapolis at the last presidential
election is amusing. It first stated in
corner cards and in various other places
in the paper that the vote of Minneapo
lis was 38,000. Its attention having
been called to the palpable error, it did
not correct it, but said with a flourish .
that the vote of Hennepin county was
nearly 38,000 and that of Ramsey but
26,000. Will the Tribune become honest
about a minute, and state that Henne
pin county is one of the largest in the
state and has twenty-five postoffices out
side of Minneapolis, whereas . Ramsey
county is the smallest in the state, has
but three postoffices outside of St. Paul,
and the county outside of the city casts
but little more than 1,000 votes? The
questions of relative vote, school chil
dren and population of the two cities
are not at issue, however. What the
people of St. Paul and the rest of the
state of Minnesota want to know now,
and with due celerity, ls, how much
was the Minneapolis census padded?
COL. JOHNSON TALKS.
He Says Politics Is Behind the
Col. C. W. Johnson, clerk of the
United States senate, arrived in Minne
apolis yesterday, and the air being full
of census talk, of course what he says
in connection with the census,
being fresh from the head of govern
ment business, is of interest. He
could not be found yesterday, but last
night a Globe representative succeed
ed in getting him out of bed for an in
terview. This is what he said : "There
is no prospect of congress adjourning
before the 15th of August or the Ist of
September. During the next few weeks
there will be a few days when the sen
ate will not be in session, as the
tariff bill will not be taken
up until July 7, and all
the other important bills, like the silver
measure, are in conference. As I had
some important business to transact
here, and as I could get away easier
now than at any other time, I decided
to come now. Moreover, my mother is
very sick, and a desire to see her was
a great incentive for me to visit
Minneapolis as soon as possible.
My visit here is on purely personal
business. It " has nothing whatever to
do with the census, nor with anything
besides private affairs. However, Ido
not wish it to be understood that I am
indifferent to the census matter. 1
recognize the situation— l have fol
lowed the matter in the papers,
but I have taken no part in
it whatever, and will take no
part either here or in Washington. 1
have not been in the attorney general's
office for six months. Ido not know
Mr. Taft, tbe solicitor. I know Mr.
Miller only officially. I have been in
the census office but once since it was
opened, so you can see that I have
taken no part in this affair.
As to this trouble, I will
say that I think the action of St. Paul
unneighborly and unfriendly. If fraud
has been committed, if there was any
evidence tending to show that fraud had
been committed, there were ways to
reach it under the laws which would
have been justified. I think the effort
being made to throw discredit upon Mr.
Hay is misleading and intentionally
so. The purpose behind this seeming
outgrowth of local rivalry is purely po
litical, it is the endeavor of certain
Republican politicians of St. Paul to
array the political sentiment of the state
against Minneapolis. There is nothing
disinterested about it. The pretense
that this action has been taken for
the public interest is nothing but a
pretense. The end hoped for is to
discredit Minneapolis before the gov
ernment and before the state. The peo*
§le of Minneapolis outnumber those of
t. Paul by 30,000 or 40,000. It is an ef
fort to belittle the city before the coun
try at large, and particularly the state.
I don't kuow whether there have
been any frauds. It is not nec
essary to perpetrate frauds in the
enumeration, in order that Minneapolis
may outstrip St. Paul, understand. I
don't justify fraud. Ido not excuse it
in any way, and I believe in an honest,
fair investigation. The census of 1880,
taken by me, although denounced at
the time by certain St. Paul papers,
was absolutely invulnerable. It was
thoroughly examined by hostile
critics both here and at Wash
ington and has long since been
vindicated. The cry has always been,
as it was then, 'Minneapolis always pads
her- census.' The falsity of the state
ment was proved ten years ago. There
should be a thorough, honest, im
partial investigation now. I be
lieve the people of Minneapolis
will offer no objection to such an
investigation. I speak of this matter as
a man who has watched the situation,
but a man who has taken no part in the
matter at all. I will be in Minneapolis
but a few days, when I will return to
Washington, and while here I shall oc
cupy myself with private business ex

sentative, as was reported recently. ,

A General Desire for a Short

The Tariff Bill Will Probably
Go Over for Another
Little Prospect of a Vote on
the Election Bill Before
Washington, June 29.— Morrill
said yesterday that he would call up
the tariff bill in the senate to-morrow,
but the probabilities are that the debate
on the measure will not begin before
Monday of next week, as the senate
will be occupied with appropriation
bills during the greater part of this
week. The District of Columbia and
the legislative, executive and judicial
bills are before it for action on confer
ence reports, and the committee on ap
propriations expects to report the sun
dry civil and Indian bills before Thurs
day. Of general business, the bill for
the admission of Idaho has first place
on the calendar, and will be taken up at
the earliest opportunity. As in the
case of the- Wyoming bill. Repub
licans will not discuss it at length,
submitting it upon the report of the
committee on territories. After It is
disposed of, the river and harbor bill
will be taken up, the present pro
gramme contemplating its "considera
tion before entering upon the tariff de
bate. As Friday will be the Fourth of
July, an adjournment of the senate from
Thursday until Monday is probable, al
though this has not been definitely de
cided upon. If the senate should con
clude to hold a session Saturday, it will
be devoted to the consideration of bills
on the calendar to which objection is .
not made. It is the confident expecta
tion of the members of the house that
there will be only four days' session
this week. The house has its work well
in hand, and as the probability
that this session of congress will
be unusually protracted has now
become practically a certainty, there is
a strong desire on the part of the mem
bers to take advantage of the 4th of
July coming on 'Friday to secure a va
cation of a few days during the heated
term. The speaker himself favors ad
journment over until Monday. The
house therefore has one legislative day
only during the coming week at its dis
posal, the first three days under the
rule being set apart for the further con
sideration of the federal election bill.
The rules committee has considered
what it shall do with this one day-
Thursday— but has not yet definitely
decided what measure shall get the
benefit of it. The strongest probability
is that the committee will report
a rule setting apart the day for
the disposal - of the Torrey
bankruptcy bill, but there ■ are
other measures being pressed for early
action, and the friends of some one or
more of them may induce . the commit
tee to defer consideration of the Torrey'
bill and give the day to them. It may
be, however, that there will be no
necessity for reporting any rule at all,
as the day may possibly be consumed
with a conference report upon the silver
bill. It is not likely, though, that so
early an agreement on the silver bill
will be reached, and that this subject ;
will not come before the house again
until the following week. There is
also a possibility of a hitch in congres
sional programmes, and an unexpected
debate on some appropriation bill con
ference report, or some other at present
unknown obstacle may delay the final
vote 011 the election bill until Thursday
instead of Wednesday.; "*;
BEN IS FOR THE BILL.
The President Anxious to Sign the
Washington, June 29.— The Sunday
Herald to-day, commenting on Presi
dent Harrison's attitude toward the fed
eration election bill, says: "President
Harrison has heretofore been given the
credit of at least deprecating, if not of '
actually opposing, the passage of the
dangerous federal election bill now un
der discussion in the house. It has been
believed that he was statesman enough
to discern the evil tendencies ot the
scheme, and sufflcienily patriotic to
frown upon the centralizing and un-
American clique which has ' forced
most of the Republicans ,in the
hoase into accepting the bill.
But yesterday - the president took
occasion to declare himself under the
domination of the Reed wing of the
party and ,in favor of the bill. He
thinks there is still saving power for
his party in the 'bloody shirt,' and not
ouly wants the bill passed but wants it
done quickly, so that the cry of 'South
ern outrages' may be used in the com
ing congressional campaign, 'to fire the
Northern heart' and distract attention
from the queer record of the party in
congress on silver, and the growing dis
sensions on the tariff question. A gen
tleman who in the past has held very
close official and personal relations with
the president related the ; substance
of an interview between him and
the chief magistrate to a Her
ald representative yesterday _ morn
ing. It opened with an amusing
declaration by Gen. Harrison that under
no circumstances would he interfere,
even by the remotest suggestion, out
side of" an official message, with the ac
tion of congress. Then the president
continued: 'If they pass the federal
election bill. I will sign it as soon as it
is presented to me for my consideration.
I want them to psss that bill, and I
don't care who knows it.' Subsequently,
the president said he had, in a desul
tory way, advised his : friends in both
houses of congress to proceed as rapidly
as possible with the final enactment of ?
the bill, so that it might become a ques
tion of discussion in the coming cam
paign.' " "-: :- - '_. '■■■ y■'

'-.: Gallatin, Term., June 29.— A terri
ble tornado possed over the northern
part of Gallatin this evening at 5:30
o'clock; lasting about five minutes. It
could be heard some distance, and the
storm king came with terrific force,
uprooting trees, lifting roofs, and tear
ing awnings and signs from their
fastenings. A church, ' the African
Methodist, was blown to pieces and the
roof caved in on the ; congregation.
Their screams and cries could be heard
a great distance. Ten. were taken from
the debris, and two were so horribly
crushed by the roof and falling timbers
that they are dying. Granville Brown,
the minister, was badly crushed in his
pulpit. Among the wounded and crip
pled are Ann Martin and Mrs. Mary
Hoffmann (both dying), Gilbert Wocd
ford and child, Mary Hortou, Mary

Granville Beech, G. Brown and others.
All the doctors of the town were soon
upon the scene, and administered to the
dying and wounded. The church was
filled, and how any escaped is a miracle.
Gallatin's public school was damaged
by part of the front blowing in, but the
loss is not serious. . Fencing and trees
were swept away by the storm, and in
many private residences carpets were
blown from the floors, and furniture
smashed into kindling wood. No other
loss of life is reported up to 9 o'clock.

Judge Tuley Sends a Remark
able Letter to the Chicago
The Abridgement of Personal
Rights the Subject of
Usurpation of Power by Ex
ecutive Officers the Chief
The Judge Wants Personal
Rights Leagues in Every
Chicago, June 29.— thousand
people, assembled to-day at the annual
games of the turner societies of Chicago,
listened to a letter which • aroused de
cided interest. It was from Judge Mur
ray F. Tuley, one ot the oldest and best
known jurists in the city. The letter
was read by W. H. Dyrenfurth, the
president of the Personal Rights league,
and was addressed to the Chicago dis
trict turners as members of the Personal
Rights league, and read as follows: "I
regret that I am unable to accept your
kind invitation to be with you t o-day,
but permit me to say, however, that I
am in hearty sympathy with the ob
jects and the purposes of your society.
I regard your organization as one of
the most important factors in the pres
ervation of the liberties of the
people now existing in this country.
The "preservation of personal rights"
and the "maintenance of liberty" are
convertible terms. Just so far as an in
dividual is deprived of his personal
rights, just to that extent is he . in sla
very. Every law which directly or in
directly "forbids the exercise of, or
abridges a man's "personal rights," de
prives him to that extent of his liberty.
When such abridgement of personal
rights is not for the benefit of the Amer
ican people, it becomes
Unjust and Tyrannical
legislation. But the danger to liberty
is not so much from unequal or tyran
nical legislation as it is from the ignor
ing of written iaws, and the usurpation
by executive officers of powers and
authority ' not' granted by the -law.
When (as in this city of Chicago)
the police arrest upon bare
suspicion and without "warrant" per
sons not found in the act of violating
the laws; when the police undertake to
determine who shall and who shall not
J meet in open public assemblage". to dis
cuss political cor •- economic questions ;
when, after. years of liberty in this
country, a citizen is arrested without
warrant, consigned to a prison cell for
eight long days (a recent case in con
nection with a dynamite find at the
Haymarket monument), prevented from
communicating with his friends, denied
the privilege of consultation with his
legal adviser, and Is not even informed
of the nature of the accusation against
him; and when, in answer to a judicial
mandate, the door of his prison cell is
opened and the officers of the : law re
quired to show cause "why this viola
tion of the citizen's personal rights,"
the chief executive officer of the police
makes "return" to his freeman's writ
of "habeas . corpus," that he arrested
this citizen upon the letter of
...' An Unknown Party,
and detained the citizen in prison while
trying to find such unknown party— a
"return" the like of which never before
disgraced ; the records of a civilized
country— when "trial by newspaper" is
substituted for "trial by jury;" when .
"original packages" of slander and
villification are hurled at the highest
court of the nation because of its de
cisions favoring "personal rights" and
the freedom of commerce; when upon
almost every article of food, of drink
and of clothing a fictitious price is made
by means of unlawful trusts and com-,
binations, it is time, I say, not only "to
call a halt," but also to establish per
sonal rights leagues in every school
district, in every county, in every state
of this Union, Let your organization
proclaim it 'to be the first
, duty of every citizen to . obey the law,
whether he . be an official cr a private
citizen. Demand that there shall be
absolute equality of every citizen be
fore the law, in . the administration of
the law and under the operation of the
law. Persevere .in your opposition to
all sumptuary and other vicious legisla
tion, and teach the people that, if they,
wish to preserve their liberties, there
must be "eternal vigilance" iv the pro
tection of "personal rights." Respect
fully, M. F. Tuley.
