QUIPS AND FANCIES.
President Can field is not the man to
Blop over with enthusiastic panegyric,
especially when he inwardly is of a con
trary opinion. In addressing the cham
ber of commerce last Monday, he is re
ported as saying the work in connection
with the Educational association meet
ing had been "fairly" done. And this
after the local executive has labored for
Either from oversight or pure "cus
fiedness." the state authorities fail to
provide scuts for visitors to the capitol.
Adequate accommodation was afforded
in this particular up to within a few
weeks ago. when the interior of the
building was renovated and the seats
disappeared. There are many people,
on business, compelled to wait around
the capitol for hours, and a few seats
promiscuously arranged along the cor
rido>- would be very acceptable to them.
C. Tyson Butcher was yesterday
granted a stay until Saturday in which
to pay the 525 fine for blacking the eye
of a fellow attorney. No one would ob
ject to this if a similar opportunity was
afforded every poor fellow who is un
fortunate enough to get landed into the
police court. There is no reason why
a privilege should be granted to tne
man who wears broadcloth which is re
fused to the wearer of fustian.
An evidence that the. rivalry existing
between St. Paul and Minneapolis is
good for both cities is the action of the
bankers in regard to the so-called re
serve cities. Over a year ago the ot.
Paul bankers attempted to have this
city included in the reserve list, but,
owing to a few kickers, nothing was ac
complished. On the other hand, the
Minneapolis bankers united and that
city w;is designated by the controller of
currency as a reserve city. What is the
result? The kicking bankers of St.
Paul quickly fall into line, and this city
will shortly be on the reserve list. It is
to this active competition that the two
cities owe their present prominence.
To unite the cities would be to entirely
dry up this healthy rivalry.
A visit to the headquarters of the
National Educational association will
give citizens an idea of the vast throng
which may be expected in ttie city next
-week. President Canfield has told the
chamber of commerce that when the
people see 15,000 in the city they will
wish they had "opened their hearts
more.'' It would be interesting to know
from Mr. Canfield in what way St. Paul
has been lacking Ur providing for the
accommodation of the teachers.
It is no doubt pleasant and profitable
for citizens to meet and discuss the
public school system, but really it is
about time something practical was
done— that is, if anything requires to be
done. Would it not be advisable to de
cide this point first— Does the public
school system tend to secularism and
agnoticism? Archbishop Ireland says
It does; Supt. Kiehle says it doesn't.
Who is right?

The binding t.vine question still con
tinues to agitate farmers. By the way,
is it not time for the prison board man
agers to take some action? Over a week
ago Gov. Merriam instructed the board
upon the desirability of doing some
thing, but, as yet, no move has been
taken. In the meantime the twine
trust is daily growing stronger, and, it
goes without saying, richer. The twine

Second District Farmers to

Farmers' Alliance Men to be

Col. Hans Mattson Makes a
Combination With Ole
Why Capt. Snider Will Run
Behind in St. Paul-
And now John Lincl's bailiwick is to
be invaded by the farmers, who are up
in arms against the iniquitous McKinley
Last evening Secretary John Lathrop,
of the Fanners' alliance, issued the call
for a convention for the formation of a
Fanners" alliance of the Second congres
sional district and also for the nomina
tion of a candidate for congress to be
voted for at the ensuing election. This
convention is summoned to meet at Ka
sota Junction, in Le Sueur county, on
Friday, July 18, at 10 o'clock in the
"This call is issued," said Secretary
Lathrop, '"by the express directions and
requests of the local and county alli
ances of the district, as far more than a
majority, indeed I may say nearly all of
the local alliances, have voted in fswor
of this action, and so, as is my duty, 1
issue the call. Kasota Junction is prob
ably the most central point iv the dis
trict, and the date, July IS, will permit
the delegates to the big convention to be
held here on the Kith to attend this one
on their return to their homes, and will
same them an extra trip, considerable
time and some money."
It is now war to the knife between Hie
Farmers' alliance and the Republican
party in this state. >
The first county in tbe state in which
the Kepublicans were bold enough, to
throw down the gauntlet was Otter Tail,
and in the county convention which
was held at Battle Lake on Tuesday
not only were the alliance linen refused
admission as delegates, but not a single
nominee on the farmers' ticket, Repub
licans, and reputable Republicans, too,
though most of them were, was in
dorsed or taken up by the Republican
machine. A few weeks ago at a largely
attended convention the Alliance of
Otter Tail county nominated a full
county and legislative ticket. A num
ber of the present corps of Republican
county officers were placedon the ticket
and a laboring man and one or two Dem
ocrats were also given places for minor
offices. This scored the old Republican
machine and after due consultation with
party leaders in St. Paul the order went
forth that every man who hoped for a
nomination from the Republican county
convention must drop the Alliance
men like hot potatoes. The bosses
assumed a very threatening attitude
and scared the nominees of the farmers
for three or four oflices into writing
elaborate letters, in which a lot of triv
ial and imaginary reasons were set forth
for their declining to accept the nomi
nations given them by the farmers.
These letters were published not only
in the local Republican organ at Fergus
Falls, but also in the Merriam organ at
the capital of the state. They were
written to the president of the
Otter Tail alliance, but before
he ever received any of them
copies were furnished the papers men
tioned above, thus showing that the
letters were written not for the chair
man of the local Farmers' alliance
organization, but for a purpose more far
reaching in its effects.
Heroic remedies are to be used in the
treatment of the' Farmers alliance move
ment, and the Otter Tail precedent is to
be followed in all parts of the state. If
any extended argument were necessary
to prove that this is the general plan of
the Republican bosses it could have
been found yesterday had any one
taken care to observe the anxiety
with which the capitol officials and Mer
riam leaders generally watched and
waited returns from the Otter Tail con
vention. The programme had been
outlined, and trusty leaders had been
selected, but there was a remote fear
that Hon. John B. llqmpe would break
into the gathering of the bosses and
smash everything. The organization
was well greased, however, and the
farmers were sat upon as hard as possi
ble, and given notice that, any farmer
belonging to the fanners' alliance, or in
anywise deflecting from steadfast loy
alty to the party of Heed, McKinley &
Co., need expect nothing from the Re
publican party of Minnesota.
How will this strike the farmers of
the state, who are not accustomed to
being considered the slaves of any
'If there is one thing more thati an
other that is calculated to boom the
Farmers' alliance movement arrd make
it a power in the coming election." re
marked an alliance leader yesterday,
"it is just this hostility that is being
shown by the friends of Gov, Merriam.
I understand that the governor has said
that he does not care for the
Republican nomination if there is
to be an independent ticket iv
the field, and so he has probably
sailed in to prevent a nomination being
made by any means in his power, lie
would make more by keeping his hands
off and not trying to boycott the alli
ance. The air is full of independence
this year, and a lot of rotten political
machines are likely to be smashed into
Col. Hans Mattson, the oreseut secfe
tary of state, is a very clever politician.
He is a candidate for another nomina
tion. He is a Swede, and his scalp is
being sought industriously by F. P.
Brown, of Faribault county, who is a
Norwegian by birth. Now Col. Mattson
recognizes the fact that the Republican
state ticket this year must of necessity
contain representatives of both the
Norwegian and the Swedish people.
Lieut. Gov. Rice, who was borji in
Norway, is not a candidate for another
term and a new Norwegian must be
re-elected to fill a place on the ticket,
for if Senator Ives, of St. Peter, gets
Puce's place and Col. Bolbter and all
the others are renoininated. a very
pretty fight will come on between Sec
retary Mattson and Brown, of Fari
bault, for the nomination for secretary
But there is another distinguished
citizen of Norwegian descent who
would like to break into the state cap
itol. His name is Ole H. Lucken, of
Crookston, and a few days ago a bright
idea came rolling along in Col. Matt
son's direction suggesting that he form
a combination with Mr. Lucken by the
terms of which he (Mattson) would se
cure the support of Northern Minne
sota for secretary of state, while
Coi. Mattson's friends from Minneapolis
and elsewhere would be thrown to
Lucken for clerk of the supreme court.
J n this case action followed the colo
nel's mental effort, and yesterday Mr.
Lucken came down from Crookston and
held a lontr consultation with Col. Matt
son, evidently arriving at some conclus
ion in the matter, for he departed in
sisting thai be is now in the fight for
the nomination for clerk of the supreme
court in dead earnest.
Secretary Mattson knows a thine or
two about politics.
Congressman Snider is reported as
being very much afraid of the
effect this census trouble may
liave on his chances for re-election,
but, as a veteran St. Paulite. remarked
yesterday, "lie is unnecessarily alarmed.
THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: THURSDAY MORNIXG, JULY 3, 18' JO.
The people of Ramsey county and St.
Paul will not vote against him because
he hails from Minneapolis. Oh, no!
Tney will remember that he has put in
the larger portion of his time at Wash
ington with a congress Republican in
both branches, nnd yet no appropria
tion has been received for the erection
of a new public building so badly ueed
ed in St. Paul. Efficiency, and not
locality, will be the test applied to Mr.
Snider by his St. Paul constituents."
Less than two weeks ago the Globe,
in an outline of the condition of affairs
in the Second congressional district,
stated that there existed a great deal of
dissatisfaction in all parts of the dis
trict over the course of John Lind dur
ing this session of congress, and that it
was altogether likely ex-Congressman
John B. Wakefield, of Blue Earth City,
could easily be elected if he were given
the farmers' noniination. This was de
nied by Republican papers of all sizes,
ages and conditions, including the
Pioneer Press. But, strange to relate,
in yesterday's issue of that paper John
Lind was given the worst raking on
record, and Gov. Wakefield was men
tioned as the man who could snatch tbe
nomination from him if he so desired.
Apart from this, however, John Lind's
support of the McKinley bill has cost
him dearly, and may force him to retire
One of the hardest working and most
sincere men in the Farmers' alliance
movement in Minnesota to-day is prob
ably Secretary John Lathrop, of Daw
son. He lias long been foremost in the
alliance work, and has been a contribu
tor, not only to the columns of Farm,
Stock and Home, but also many other
agricultural journals. No one acquaint
ed with Mr. Lathrop would ever take
any stock in an assertion by a protege
of Mr. Donnelly's, to the effect that
"Secretary Lathrop was opposed to in
dependent action by the farmers," and
when this was brought to Mr. Lathrop's
attention last evening he said:
"You can contradict the report that 1
was not in favor of independent action.
I was always of the opinion that in no
other way could we accomplish half so
much. Of course I don't care for such
reports, but Ido not care to be misrep
resented on this particular question."
The sensational accounts published in
the evening Republican organs yester
day to the effect that Hon. Michael
Doran and other Democratic leaders
were seeking to make votes in the cen
sus war is so absurd that there is no
necessity of contradicting it. Mr. Doran
has always been considered a politician
of considerable sagacity and foresight,
and would be the last man in the world
to fool with a two-edged sword like this
census difficulty. The Democratic lead
ers of Minnesota are not obliged to go
into peanut politics at present; there
are too many important issues before the
people, on which the party is on the
right and popular side, to demand any
thing of this kind, and nothing like it
wili be attempted.
. Hon. P. li. Rahilly, of Wabasha, spent
last evening chatting with numerous
friends in the lobbies of the Ryan and
the Merchants', incidentally wandering
over into ttie field of politics. "The
people are at last coming around to our
side on the tariff question," lie re
marked, "and with wise and good nom
inations I believe the Democrats can
carry the state. I am watching the
movements of the farmers with consid
erable interest, as whatever they do will
have its effect on the campaign."
From politics Mr. Rahilly passed on
to a discussion of the crop outlook, and
said that it was never more hopeful.
His farm, by the way, is said to be the
finest in the state, and is composed of
upward of a thousand acres of the finest
land in Wabasha county. Mr. Rahilly
has frequently represented his county
in the state legislature, and is one of
the staunch Democrats of the First dis
MAYOR IS HARRASSED.
Six Additional Policemen Ap
In accordance with the resolution
passed by the city council last Tuesday
evening, Mayor Smith yesterday ap
pointed six additional officers upon the
police force, to do duty as jailors and
drivers at Margaret, Ducas and Rondo
sub-stations. Heretofore there has been
only one jailor and one patrol driver at
each of these stations for the twenty
four hours. Hereafter there will be a
day and night jailor and driver.
For Ducas street station John Minor is
appointed jailor and Albert Western
hazen is made patrol wagon driver; for
Margaret street William Hart is jailor
and Hans Emola driver; for Rondo
street Michael Tschida is jailor and
Michael Davitt driver.
Mayor Smith is harrassed by persons
seeking positions. The mayor feels the
importunities of place hunters just at
present, as he is indisposed. The im
pression prevails that fifty new patrol
men are to be added to the police force,
in pursuance of the resolution offered
at the last meeting of the council. The
resolution is in the hands of the commit
tee on streets, and there is a strong
probability that the committee will re
port unfavorably on the resolution.

While there is no disposition on the
part of Mr. Baxter to advertise his

AN EMPHATIC PROTEST
To the Cable Assessment, Made by
Selby Avenue Freeholders.
"They say the assessment is for the
bridge, but it is really an assessment
for the cable line," said W. D. Cornish
last night in the meeting of citizens to
protest aeainst assessment for the Selby
avenue bridge across tne Milwaukee
tracks, and the manifestations of ap
proval with which the comment was re
ceived showed that those present were
of the saute opinion. I
About 100 interested property owners
had assembled in one of the municipal
court rooms to take s me action against
being assessed for the improvement,
the board of public works having sent
out notices that a hearing would be
given to realty holders Thursday after
noon, July 3, at 2 o'clock. The board
proposes to assess all owners of lots ion
Selby avenue, and also those upon the
two parallel streets both north and
south of that street. The bridge is esti
mated to cost 8100,000, and of this
amount the property owners from St. Al
bans to Prior avenue are expected to put
np 862,000. So the interested parties
called the meeting, of which W. D. Cor
nish was made chairman and W. P. Hil
liard secretary. The subject was dis
cussed at length by Messrs. John W.
White, E. A. Hendrickson, W. D. Cor
nish, John Shannon, T. Reardon, M. K.
Prendergast, Conrad Miller, Mr. Ken
nard and others. It was stated that the
improvement was almost wholly for the
benefit of the cable line, since the grade
of Selby avenue, originally cross
ing the tracks on a level,
had been raised to such
a height as would leave lets close to the
bridge approaches from ten to fifteen
feet below the street; that the assess
ment was wholly disproportionate
(those not interested and those actually
damaged bearing the same burden),
whereas, the street railway company,
which required the bridge for the ex
tension of its line to the Midway dis
trict, paid but a nominal sum. Mr.
Miller suggested that the street car
company should pay for the whole lm
provement.as it received the entire ben
efit, and from the way he was ap
plauded, it was quite evident every
man of the 100 present thought so too.
Mr. Reardon said he thought the board
of public works was limited to taxation
for public improvement, and that its
proceeding in this instance was illegal
since this was not a taxation for im
provement, but a confiscation. Mr.
Hendrickson suggested a committee of
ten to wait upon the board, which led
Mr. Preuderg'ast to suggest that the
committee formulate a plan of action,
else they would be bulldozed by the
board of public works. Mr. Ken
nard suggested that if an asess
men* was to be made for the improve
ment it should extend southward to the
Grand avenue electric line, and not be
confined to the narrow strip the board
had marked out. A gentleman stated
that the plans for the bridge had been
drawn wrong by the city engineer, nec
essitating the taking down of three
piers, and asked if those assessed had
to pay for the cost of the mistake, which
led Mr. Milliard to the reading of a list
of outside incidental expenses, footing
up $2,404. Mr. Reardon insisted
the board of public works had
not the power to assess in this instance
and suggested that all sign a paper em
powering the committee to act, each
contributing to fight the assessment.
"The eableiine," said he, "as 1 under
stand, has already received a bonus of
$100,000 to build its line."
Chairman Cornish said if anything
was to be accomplished, there must be
no clashing of diversified interests.
They must pull together for a common
end. In accordance with a motion fi£
appointed the following committee,
which will meet at 10 o'clock to-day in
one of the council committee rooms:
W. F. Root, E. H. Murrey, tf. B.
Wedge, E. A. Paradis, F. C. Severs, U.
A. Campbell, Conrad W. Miller, John
W. Shannon, representing property
owners west of the bridge; W. D. Cor
nish, John W. White, W. P. HillianJ.
M. R. Prendersrast, Timothy Reardon,
Charles Michaud, YV. H. Albin. C. P.
Colenian. representing property owners
east of the bridge.
The committees will act in conjuue
tion. Mr. Pendergast moved that the
committee proceed upon the basis thjil
the improvement was one for which tfre
whole city should pay, and that it should
not be paid for by local assessment,
which unanimously passed.
The following protest w^s drawn up
by Mr. White:.
To the Honorable the Board of Public
Works of the City of St. Paul: We, the un
dersigned property owners along the line of
the property alleged to be benefited by the
building of" the bridge and approaches at
Selby avenue across the right of way of the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway com
pany, respectfully protest against the assess
ment as made by the board, on the ground
