It has been charged that the old world
has done a i. r <> -d deal of business in the
way of dumping its criminals and pau
pers into tills country. Confirmatory
facts have not been wanting, and at
least nominal provision has been made
to check the unfriendly work. In July
a commission of five members was sent
over to Europe to look into the matter
and see how the investigation business
was conducted. They were heard of
occasionally as having nice things
thrown in their way and enjoying a
good time. They did not frequent re
sorts where kid gloves were out of
place, and had no knowledge of the
Language of the countries they
visited. Naturally they found things
lovely and the authorities clever people
who would not do any thin-: that
was not nice. One of them, however,
who seems to have been selected by i
some mistake, had the singular notion
that a picnic was not exactly their mis
sion, and. in a complete disguise, gave
his associates the slip and visited the
resorts of the emigrants. He was one of
them and acquired information rapidly.
He found that while the govern
ment authorities may not have
done more than to wink com
placently, there were all sorts of em
igration societies and organizations,
with high charitable and humane pro
fessions, eniraired in shipping the pau
pers, imbeciles and criminals to the
United States. The steamship com
panies were liberally paid for this sort
of freight, and more than willing to do
their part. This distinguished commis
sioner. Mr. Scnui.TiES, manifested the
enterprise of a genuine Bohemian in
his quest, and came over with the emi
grants as a steerage passenger. He
learned that there was connivance with
the business of the emigration bureau
in New York, and that many of those
sent abroad to investigate were in
league with the parties realizing the
profit the Infamous transaction. It is
not surprising that there arc -efforts
to disparage his report and refuse its
credence. Corns on large feet are trod
den on. There is a Sue field for search
ing inquiry by Secretary Foster.
a*;d room for a vigorous probe. Con
gress will lie likely to give the subject
its early attention and institute meas
ures for reform in this relation. This
country wants all the material it can
obtain fur good citizenship, but has
enough of the vicious and unfortunate
classes of home production.
A WFsj; PROGRAMME.
The joiut coinaiittee having in charge
the commemoration of St.' Paul's semi
ceutennial aunivereary shows good
judgment in deciding to omit the carni
val feature from Urn exercises. A dig
nified -dill furious indoor celebration,
Including spieeasji. so:i?s and specta
cles, will be much more in keeping with
the character of ihs event and the spirit
of the times. The display and uproar
ol masked bails and costumed proces
sions properly enough accompanies a
b'jo:n era, when men are reckless be
cause their prosperity is great beyond
their exertions, 1; it now, when the
city's mind Is bunt -earnestly on sub
stantial progress, an I our people are
laying deep foundationa on which to
raise structures of permanent and cen
tal value, frivolity and rioting seem a
little out of place. Our beat energies
as a community are needed for higher
things. We want to secure factories,
not for their temporary effect on
town Jots, but to provide employment
for Honest laborers, and to increase
the returns of industry. We want to
add to the number and variety of our
jobbing houses that they may supple
ment each other and ail grow from the
contagion of each others' effort and de
velopment. We want to build a public
auditorium in which great gatherings of
one kind and another can be accommo
dated. We want to work lirst to get the
Democratic national convention for St.
Paul, and next to welcome us delegates
and provide them with facilities for the
convenient transaction >f their busi
ness. Ail these things have a definite
significance tor us as a municipality
and mean expansion and enlarged im
portauee. They will consume all the
leisure which we can spare from our
regular duties and all the money
the generous can afford to contribute.
Thegerit&ntpii who advocate the re
vival of carnival clubs along with this
are on t!i right trade also. Two mild
winters have made us forget the rigors
of our climate, ana the danger that the
cold season may pass in gloom unless
some thing is done to brighten it. De
fore our first ice palacs year January
and February w nt by like a Ion? night,
and men and w »:nen greeted one another
in the spr'ng .is though after an absence
during vhi.-ii their friends" faces had
been lost lo siirlit. Tobogganing and
snow shoeing tUuMened the days when
the ll:or no.neter ranged below zero, and
tuned into gayety what before had
bi'en dark and sad. Now, that we are
surely to have a Minnesota winter again,
it is very desirable that we should renew
these instruments for diversion and en
joyment. But, as the committee has
suggested, they can safely be left to
private and individual enterprises.
Young men and women, who will iind
pleasure in this sort of thins:, can co
<> Kiate for its revival, and their mutual
rivalries and competitions will irivo it
the vitality required for its success.
But the city, as a city, and our business
men, as business men. will have their
bands full with other calls more worthy
of their attention and more promising;
in tlu ir results. We are on the cdire of
a period delightful to contemplate and
limitless in its possibilities, and it be
hooves us to keep ourselves untram
meled that we may be equal to its de
NOT IN THIS WAY.
One very serious and noteworthy fact
was brought to public notice by the
competition for the Republican national
convention. (lov. Mkimuam's inter
view at Chicago was it> first expres
sion, but he returned to the subject
again before the national committee,
and the delegates from half a dozen
cities followed his example. "If you
would save Minnesota for the party,
roui3 to Minneapolis," said be, "because
ih.>r;* is disintegration in the ranks, and
r.'^ot on every side."' "If you would
c! a.v" tho fangs of the Tammany
tiger," said Mr. FASSETT, still lame
from his wrestle with its prowess,
"come to New York, for even the farm
ers in the Interior are deserting our
standard." "If you would save
Michigan."' said the spokesman of
Detroit, "come to the gateway of the
lakes,becauae the eiieinyis confident and
lias the prestige of its lecent victory."'
>; If you would save lowa and Ne
braska,"' said Judge Scott, "come to
Omaha, because the Democracy's'banner
Is in the ascendant in these Republican
strongholds." From every quarter the
cry of these men telling what they
knew and part of what they had been
was a cry of alarm, and their call a call
for help if they were to escape defeat.
The (ii.oiJK thinks that it Is possible
to overestimate the effect of a national
convention as a means of party salva
tion. It takes more than the enthusi
asm and the impressiveness of such an
event to win and hold tha devotion of
intelligent voters. Power and glory do
have an effect on the popular mind, and
men like to be counted on the strouc
and dominant side ol a fiiriit. But the
farmers of Minnesota and lowa already
recognize the ability of the Republican
leaders and the strength of the Repub
lican organization. They have not tost
their sympathy with radicalism beeanac
it has grown weak and puny. The
agrarian revolt which has put Boies
in the governor's chair and reduced
Mk!:i:iam's majority to two thousand
is based on principles and not on hur
rahs. If New York, if Michigan, if
Minnesota, if lowa, if Nebraska are to
be brought surely and safely into the
Republican column, it will not be by
building big wigwams, hiring bis: bands
or cheering on street corners. The l!e
--publican party will have to free itself
from the domination of the monopolists
if it is to enjoy the confidence and the
support of the farmers.
CAUSES AL/AUM ABROAD.
Chicago does not topographically fill
the picture of a city set on a hill, but
it is the focus of widely extended vision
as the world's fair city. In view of this
fact, it is unfortunate that interference
was had with the late apparently harm
less although frothy exhibition of so
cialism. In this country it would soon
be forgotten and cut no figure, but it
seems to have elicited some apprehen- |
sion abroad. In most of the European
arid other foreign countries they know
of no way of preserving pub
lic order but by an army. As
there is no standing army in this
country to speak of. it is not realized
that there is any effective and prompt
reliance for the preservation of tran
fiuiiity in a community infested by
anarchists. The fact that every good
citizen is a policeman and soldier with
out uniform, ready to preserve the pub
lic peace, is not understood. Chicago
can readily reinforce its police strength
to amply meet any emergency. Then
it has militia able to subject any possi
ble anarchistic outbreak. Even in .St.
Paul it may be remembered how quickly
and effectively the militia responded to a
call of the authorities the past season
and not even a puixilist offered to re
move his outer raiment. But a repre
sentative of one of the centralized Eu
ropean governments expresses alarm at
the Chicago affair as a possible menace
to life and property during the exposi
tion. He says their ••people were in
vited here by the president, they do not
know the local government of any city,
and they look to the national power for
safety to themselves and the protection
ot property." It was unwise, then, so
far as the effect abroad is con
cerned, to treat the social fanatics
at Chicago seriously, and magni
fy their sputtering . into a menace
to social older. They are but a trivial
fraction of the community, and con
fronted with a vigilant public senti
ment. In no great center of the old
world, with all the display of organized
strength by Hie authorities, would there
be such security for exhibiting visitors
as in any American city. Berlin is sat
urated with social revolutionists, and in
Paris they have shown enormous voting
numbers. But tho other day the city of
Lille elected to the chamber of depu
ties an avowed leader of anarchists,
still. Chicago will be on its srood be
havior until after the exposition, and
there should be prudent repression of
whatever may awaken fears abroad.
FOR THK DEMOCRATS.
It looks now as if- the Democrats
would control the senate of the New
York legislature. The larger body they
have by a safe majority, but there has
been doubt as to the senate. One Re
publican reported elected has died, but
the canvassing board has found that the
Democrat was really elected. In an
other district the Republican candidate
is held by the legal authorities to be a
resident of Canada and not eligible. It
is expected the Democrat will be given
the seat. These changes will give the
Democrats sixteen out of the thirty-two
members, with the casting vote of the
lieutenant governor. Another seat will
be contested, as the Democrat was
elected by one vote on the face of the
returns, and a manipulation of the can
vassers put the one vote on the other
side. There will be all sorts of imputa
tions and party ululations whatever the
facts and equities. The Republicans
have lost both branches of the legisla
ture but once since the war, and they
can least of all afford to lose them now
when they peed United States senators,
for it will be the duty of the legislature
to make the apportionments for the leg
islature as well as congress. That the

the Democrats is evident in the fact
that with 45.000 majority they can nard

Some of the papers in the East with
queer ideas would have the legislatures
interpose to prevent the playing of the
collegiate game of tootball. They insist
that it is more brutal than the prise riiiß,

Today's dispatches from Mount Pleas
ant, 10., inform the world that Mrs.
Russell B. Harrison, the wife of the
president's son. is in that city visiting
with her cousin, Mrs. J. C. Bowman,
whose husband has just opened a nov
elty store. The dispatches state further
that the Mount Pleasant Journal prints
the following advertisement: "Pres
ident Harrison's son's wife is spending
a few days at J.C. Bowman's and will be
pleased to meet the Mount Pleasant peo
ple. Everybody cordiallyinvited to call
at their novelty store and meet this dis
tinguished lady." ; The incident adds
one to the many previous illustrations
of the tendency of this Republican ad
ministration to become involved in
business enterprises. This case is,
however, differentiated from some
others by the fact that our impulsive
friend, Russell B. Harrison, does
not appear to be in any way responsible

THE SAGE'S THANKSGIVING.
As to the future of Minnesota "as an agri
cultural and manufacturing state,"' we
have been building the pyramid of our pros
perity upon Us apex, instead of upon its
base The business men have flourished
while the producers have suffered. v\'e have
palatial residences and all the other accom
paniments of wealth in our cities, while the
men who:* industry alone brings any wealth
into the state are covered with mortgages
and struggling in adversity. The result
has been an unnatural growth of the towns,
and a comparative decrease of population in
the agricultural regions in the older satilei
parts of the state. And when the farmers
have ?>ought to remedy these evil conditions
by legislation wo nave found the upper
classes of the cities arrayed almost solidly
against us. We can neither obtain a reduc
tion of interest ou money to the same rate
paid in the cities; nor laws for the preven
tion of usury; nor laws to stop the com'uiua
tious of the wheat dealers to flx the price
of our great staple at figures bo low its true
value; nor laws to stop the collection, from
the producers, of SIO.OOO.ifJO annually to puy
interest on "watered stocS," or any oib'-r
reinedia! legislation demanded by the pro
ducing class. The number in the cities who
are interested iv these unjust conditions are
but a few score, but they manage to make

parties to plunder the farmers. Min

rejoices in a fire or a cyclone, or maybe

direction in which the world's fair city

children living in Minneapolis. Chi
cago, of course, could not let this go by,
and so Monday she discovered one in
the heart of the residence district. So
far the two experiences agree. But it
was in the sequel that Chicago rose
superior to the other city. She chased
her wolf, and caught it, too, and she
didn't allow it to stop long enough to
eat any children on tiie way. either. If
there is any oiher city that thinks Chi

In one of his entertaining monologues
Wnlteomb Riley relates an anecdote
of a boy who told a whopping big story
: which nobody exhibited serious symptoms
of believing. As a palliation of the offense,
the youth hedged by the declaration that he
"didn't really mean it, "he just said it." For
'.the credit of the past record of Col. Pat
' Donan it is to be hoped that he didn't really
mean what he said against tha ability
of Minneapolis to hold a successful
national convention, but simply "just
said it. " possibly in a moment of
Inadvertency. lint whether Col. Pat Donan
meant what he said or not, it is just as well
to call thsj attention of tha people of the
United States to the fact that both Minne
apolis and St. PauL or either of them, are
amply qualified to successfully entertain any
'political convention which may bs sent to
them, and that, too, unaided by so enthusi
astic a -'promoter" as Col. Pat Donau. He
may go upon the stump against us every day.
He may shed the brilliancy of his perfervid
eloquence from behind the twinkling foot
lights of every opera house in the country in
a foaming, tidal backwash of oratorical de

button-hole each living masculine, member
of the genus homo, and into impatient, weary
cars pour the seductive strains of his siren
void; pull out the vox humana btop to its
utmost limit, and come down with both feet
on tee forte pedal. All will be as light of

New York president-makers are now
coming to a realization of the tact that
Cleveland will be the standard bearer
of the Democratic party in 1892. The
outside world has known it for a good
many months.— Detroit Free Press.
With due respect to the able young
statesman, William K. Russell, he can-
not expect, as some papers might inti
mate, to head the national Democratic
ticket in 1862. G rover Cleveland is the
only man who lias any claim on the first
position.— Manchester (N. H.) Union.

promise is that Cl rover Cleveland will be
nominated by acclamation. If Boies is

Democrats make certain of New York",
Connecticut mil New Jersey. The
South has always been able to take care
of its Democracy and will be again.—

Cleveland's great strength lies in his
position relative to the tariff. Ho is the
bead and front of the movement. With
Cleveland out of the contest, the Demo
