It has been charged that the old world
has done a pood deal of business in the
way of dumping its criminals and pau
pers into this 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 weie 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 anything that
was not nice. One of them, however,
who seems to have been selected by
some mistake, had the singular notion
that a picnic was not exactly their mis
sion, and, in a complete disguise, gave
bis associates the slip and visited the
resorts of the emigrants. lie 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 wore all sorts of em
igration societies and organizations,
with high charitable and humane pro
fessions, enraged 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. in 1. 1 ii:s. manifested the
enterprise of a genuine Bohemian in
his quest, and came over with the emi
grants as a steerage passenger. lie
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 of the infamous transaction. It is
not surprising that there are -efforts
to disparage his report and refuse its
credence. Corns on large feet are trod
den on. There is a fine field for search
ing inquiry by Secretary Foster.
and room for a vigorous probe. Con
gress will be 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 for good citizenship, but has
enough of the vicious and unfortunate
classes of home production.
A WISH PROGRAMME.
The Joint committee having in charge
the commemoration of St. Paul's semi
centennial anniversary shows good
judgment in deciding to omit the carni
val feature from tin; exercises. A dig
nified ami serious indoor celebration,
including speeches; songs and specta
cles, will be much more in keeping with
the character of the event and the spirit
of the times, Tins display and uproar
of masked balls and costumed proces
sions properly enough accompanies a
boom era, when men are reckless be
cause their prosperity is great beyond
their exertions. But now, when the
city's mind is bent earnestly on sub
stantial progress, and our people are
laying deep foundations on which to
raise structures of permanent and een
e'-al value, frivolity and rioting seem a
little out of place. Our best 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 all 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 iirst to get the
Democratic national convention for St.
Paul, and next to welcome its delegates
and provide them with facilities for the
convenient transaction of their busi
•ness. Ail these things have a definite
significance tor us as a municipality
and mean expansion : and enlarged im
portance. They will consume all the
leisure which we can spare from our
regular duties and all the money
the generous can afford to contribute.
The gentlemen who advocate there-:
vival of carnival clubs along with this
are on the right track also. Two mild
winters have made us forget the rigors
of our climate, and the danger that the
cold season may pass in gloom unless
something is done to brighten it. Be
for." onr first ice palace year January
and February w nt by like a long night,
and men and w >:nen greeted one another
in the spr ng .is thousrh after an absence
during vhhh their frienus* faces had
been lost to si<:'.it. Tobogganing and
snow (hojing gladdened the days when
the tl-.er nometer ranged below zero, and
tan ed into gayety what before had
been 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, wko will lind
pleasure in this sort of thing, can co
operate for its revival, and their mutual
rivalries and competitions will give 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 otner calls more worthy
of their attention aud more proufrsina;
in their results. We are on the o.dse 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 tor the Republican national
convention. <;ov. Mkbbtam's inter
view at Chicago was its first expres
sion, but he returned to the subject
■gain before the national committee,
and the delegates from half a dozen
cities followed his example. "If you
would save Minnesota for the party,
com.! to Minneapolis," said he/'bocause
Ihere is disintegration in the ranks, and
r.'^ot on every side."' "If you would
c; aw the fangs of the Tammany
tiger," said Mr. Fassett, still lame
from his wrestle with its prowess,
"tome to New York, for even the fann
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, because the enemyis confident and
has the prestige of its lecent victory."'
'If you would save lowa anti 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 tlrey were to escape defeat.
The GLOBE thinks that it U 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 impressiveiiess of such an
event to win and hold the devotion of
intelligent voters. Power and glory do
have an effect on the popular mind, and
men like to be counted on the strong
and dominant side ol a iisht. But ihe
farmers of Minnesota and lowa already
recognize the ability of the Republican
leaders and the Btrength of the Repub
lican organization. They hr.vc not lost
their sympathy with radicalism because
it has grown weak and puny. The
agrarian revolt which has put BoiES
in the governor's c'lair and reduced
Mi:!ii: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 Re
publican party will have to free itself
from the domination of the monopolists
if H is to enjoy the confidence and the
support of the fanners.
CAUSES ALARM ABROAD.
Chicago docs not topographically li.l
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- l
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
quiiity 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 quiekty
and effectively the militia responded to a
call of the authorities the past season
and not even a puetlist 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
of 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 ttie 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. Tlie larger body they
have by a safe majority, but there has
been doubt as to the seriate. One Re
publican reported elected has died, but
the canvassing board lias 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 siven
the seat. These changes will give the
Democrats sixteen out of the thirty-two
members, with the casting vote of the
iieutenant 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
tacts and equities. The Republicans
have lost both branches of the legisla
ture but once since the war, and they

that with 45.000 majority they can Hard

THE Indies of the White house are no

the town, and will be pleased to meet all
tho people "at Bowman's novelty
store." Wan.vma.kkk had a similar re
ception at his bargain counter. It is a
business administration, and Bex wants
to come out of the Minneapolis conven
tion with the Hag in his hand.
Some of the papers in the East with
queer ideas would have the legislatures
interpose to prevent ths playing of the
collegiate game of football. They insist
that it is more brutal than the prize ring,
and that twenty are killed or injured by
football to one by the ring exercise.
This is a strange view to take of a clas
sical accessory of intellectual culture.
Football is not played by the profes
sionals, aud "honors are won in it.
These have been some Knownoth

New York Telegram.
The public was just beginning to con
gratulate itself that Prince Russell
Harrison had subsided. Unfortunately
for this administration, it fonrot to
squelch Russy's faintly also when it
suppressed the young man himself.—
Mrs. Russell Harrison's cousin has
utilized her in a most mortifying way as
an advertisement for his novelty store.
Up to date nobody seem to have dis
covered any way, mortifying or other
wise, in which Russell can be made
useful.— Chicago Times. .
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.O. Bowman's and- will be
pleased to meet the Mount Pleasant peo
ple. Everybody cordially invited 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
for it.— Chicago Telegram. B@9
THE SAGE'S THANKSGIVING.
As to the future of Minnesota "as an agri
cultural aud manufacturing state." we
have been building the pyramid of our pros
perity upon Its apex, instead of upou 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 whose 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 sstile i
parts of the state. And when the farmers
have Aough t to remedy these evil conditions
by legislation wo nave fouud the uppor
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 combina
tions of the wheat dealers to flx the price
of oar great staple at figures below its true
value; nor laws to stop the collection, from
the producers, of $ 10,000,000 annually to pay
interest on "watered stoci," or any other
remedial legislation demanded by the pro
ducing class. The number in the cities who
are interested In these unjust conditions are
but a few score, bat they manage to make
the bulk of the city population believe that
it is a work of righteousness to help other
parties to plunder the farmers. Min
nesota's great industry, I might almost
say its only industry, is agriculture. Our
manufactures are, thr?e-fourths of them,
sold to the farmers; the profits of our mining
operations go to swell the fortunes of uon
resident raoitalists; but every dollar earned
and saved by the agriculturists is a dollar
added to the permanent wealth of the whole
suite, and every dollar stolen from them is a
loss to all citizens of the towns and villages
as well as to the fanners. If agriculture is to
flourish ii Minnesota, justice must be done
to the farming class. Pardja this lustily
written letter, and believe me to be, very

her wolf, and caught it, too, and she

In one of his entertaining monologues
James Whlteomb 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 juttsaid it." For
the credit of tao past record of Col. Pat
Donan it is to be hope 1 that he didn't really
mean what he said against iha ability
of Minneapolis to hold a successful
national convention, but simply 'just
said it," possibly in a moment of
Inadvertency. But whether Col. Pat Donan
meant what he s.Ud or not. it is just as well
to call ths attention of ths people of the
t'nited Sfates to the fact that both Minne
apolis and St. Paul, or ekher of them, are
amply qualified to successfully entertain any
political convention which may b3 sent to
them, and that, 100, unaided by so enthusi
