The growth of cigar manufacturing
fn St. Paui has l>eo;i phenomena!, and
yet it is destined to grow still larger.
The recent agitation for home industries
Is having a most healthful effect through
out the city. a:id probably ii<> . industry
Is reaDing more i meficial results from
This than tin 1 cigar-making fraternity.
It has been clearly demonstrated that as
eood a cigar can be made in St. Paul as
can be supplied by manufacturers in
any other ity in this country, and in
many respects [tial to the best iui
rorted artk-t.-. It is argued, under
these circumstances, lat citizens should
patronize \ur.m industries, and if the
agitation be inued in the same a<r
ere-sive spirit as it started, some good
work will be accomplished. While it
v.-i!l be a groat thing for the cigar manu
facturer, it will also add to the prosper
ity or tiie !n» % as factories, as ail must in
thy cud reap some of the bene
fits by the creation of a patriotic
spirit among citizens to assist in
building up their, own industries.
For a lotiir time St. Paul was handi
capped in this industry by a lack, ut'
suitable labor, b.it all "this is changed
now, the city Laving reached that point
of her growth when tiie particular class
of labor needed is plentiful. Another
thins wort!) mentioning is the fact that
there has been a marked change in the
last few years in regard to the way
in which the trades are regarded
by the >>eoii!e. Time was, and not so
very far back either, when there was a
decided aversion on the part of parents
k> allowing ineir sons to learn honest
useful and valuable trades. This feel-
Ing happily no longer exists, and tiie
people are now glad to have their chil- :
dreu taught a trade like cigar-makins.
that is both lucrative and permanent.
St. Paul ciears are soid all over toe !
Northwest- There is a ready detLand i
for them wherever they have been in- I
troduced, aud it is the experience of
the larg«; factories that the demand in
creases much more rapidly than they
can increase their facilities. Kemark
able as has beeu the growth of the to
bacco manufacturing interests in St.
Paul, it 15 destined to ue much more
rapid in the next few years. The
smokers and dealers in tobacco in St.
Paul can easily add 25 per cent to this
already large industry with little effort
if they will smoke and push the sale of I
the -roods made at home. Why should
a man smoke a cigar made in the East
when he i can get as srood, if not better,
aunle ri^iu at his home for the
same uoney? The cigar manufacturers
ut St. Paul are doing their full share to
ward building up the manufacturing in
terests of the city, and with the proper
amount of encouragement from their
fellow-townsmen it will be but*a short
time r.ntil the Saintly City will lead in
the manufacture of tobacco, as she will
in many other lines. From the first
place as a cigar manufacturing point in
the entire \\ est to the first i>iace in the
same line in the entire country is a lornr
*tcp, but it is one that St. Paul can take
if she will, Flattering as has been the
growth of tiie cigar manufacturing in
dustry in St. Paul, it has really only'
commenced to srrow. in three years
there wiil undoubtedly be l,sComeu

where now but or.e-third of that
Lumber are given work. The work
of these 500, however, places
fet. Paul at the head of the procession i
in the VVest, and gives her the further
reputation of making one-third of the
-whole number of cigars made in the
state. When it is remembered that
every town and hamlet, almost, has one
«>r more cigar factories, this is saying a
great deal. St. Paul citcars have a
eplendid reputation throughout; the
country. They are weii made and of
ail grades and qualities. A few years

for their cigars. Now they buy nearly

life-long experience in the business, as
<iid their fathers before them. Their

one of tiie larsc^t in the West and

of John Hart, who has been t identified
with the cigar trade in St. Paul for
thirty-five years. Mr. Hart began bus
iness on Third street, and for years has
been known as the old Pioneer Cigar
manufactory. The two younger mem
bers of the firm, before taking a promi
nent stand in the city, acted as travel
ing salesmen, and are known in every
city throughout the Northwest. The
business done by Messrs. Hart, Murphy
& Whaley at present is enormous.
Last year they manufactured 3.000,000
cigars, and expect to double that amount
this year. To do this work 115 skilled
workmen are employed. They are rep

Mr. Georze B. Thera, located at 244
Thirteenth streetis the manufacturer of
cigar boxes and dealer in labels. Mr.
Thera lias been in busiuess at this place
for four years, having bought out the
business established by his uncle. Be
ing an energetic man, he has largely in
creased his trade and added many im
provements to his factory, being able to
supply all the needs of the trade in his
line. Mr. Thera has the only emboss

the city,' He employs the year round a
large torce of men and women, and his
box trade, it may be explained,
extends throughout the Northwest.
Mr. Thera has booked now large
'contracts for boxes from cigar manu
facturers in the Dakotas, Montana and
states clear to the coast. Mr. Thera has
a very large stock of material on hand,
aud is ready to ! undertake at any mo
ment large or small contracts. His
1 machinery is all worked by steam. Mr.
Thera reports a growing business, and
the excellent trade he is '. doing is exem
plified by the, fact that his factory is

He contemplates shortly moving to
more commodious quarters, so as to be
better able to meet the demands of the

The Box Trade of Messrs. Wilson
Messrs. D. H. Wilson and C. M.Lewis
organized in ISB6 and bought out the
cigar box factory owned by J. L. Hertz,
at 131-133 East Seventh street. - They
continued to do a successful business at
this point up to Feb. 1. IS9I, when, ow
ing to overcrowded quarters, they had
to remove to their present spacious es
tablishment at the corner of Fourth and
Wacouta streets. The business of thi3
firm covers the entire Northwest. Their
sales are very large and sliow healthy
increase every month. Twelve hands
find constant employment, and more
will shortly be employed. Prior to en
gaging in this business Mr. Wilson for
three years was in the employ of the St.
Croix Lumber company at South Still
water. Mr. Lewis is a native of lowa
and has spent twelve years in the busi
ness. They are both practical mechan
ics, give personal attention to their
business and as a result success is
crowning their efforts. . The capacity of
their factory is 1,000 boxes a day. They
use none but modern machinery in the
manufacture of boxes, and their custo

LIVES AlA] IN DANGER,
But the Governor Hesitates to Send
Jacksonville, Miss., Feb. 7.— Got.
Stone received a telegram this after
noon from S. Walker.sheriff of Claiborn
county, Mississippi, stating that two
men were about to be mobbed at Mar
tin, and that he was unable to protect
them, and asking the governor to send
troops to him and a military company
at once. The governor tried and falled
to get transportation for troops, and
wired the sheriff that he could not get
the transportation in time to relieve
r him, and to wire the situatiou. There
is no appropriation to pay the necessary
expenses to meet emergencies of thi3
kind, and yet the governor is expected
to see the laws enforced and vindicated,
and if he does it he must do so at the
risk of having to assume the expense.
; Many members of the legislature are
.now fighting such sn appropriation.

NOW READY FOR BILLS
Having Adopted Rules, the
House Will Take Up Im
The Free Coinage Silver Bill
to Claim Attention Dur
ing the Week.
It Is Expected the Measure
Will Be Brought to a Vote
Senator Hill to Show His
Hand in the Fight Over
Washington, Feb. 7.— The house o
representatives is at last equipped with
a code of rules for its government, and
the way is now clear for legislation,
which may be expected to begin in ear
nest this week. During the period of
two months spent by the house in its
efforts to organize committees and and
provide the necessary rule's for its guid
ance the senate has been working stead
ily, and, as a consequence, has secured
considerable advantage in the passage
of sixty-six bills and joint resolutions.
The programme for thi3 week includes
at least one measure of great popular
interest, namely, the Paddock bill
to prevent the adulteration and mis
branding of food and drugs. Accord
ing to notice given by the author of the
bill.Jit will be called up for considera
tion immediately after final action is
had upon the bill relating to the public
printiu-r and binding, which is now the
unfinished busiuess. The Idaho
Senatorial Contested Election
case will be brought to the attention of
the seuate at the earliest possible mo
ment, and, as it touches the privileged
question of the right of a senator to a
seat on the floor, it will be kept before
the senate until a final conclusion is
reached. Some time Wednesday will
be devoted to the delivery of eulo
gies upon the late Representative
Houk, of Tennessee, and Senator Palm
er may address the senate on his bill
proposing the election of senators by
direct vote of the people. A number of
public building bills are in a position to
be easily reached. A feature of the
week's proceedings will be kept from
observation of the public behind closed
doors ot the senate, for it is expected
that in executive session will be fought
out the contest over the nomination of
Postmaster Rathbun, of Elmira, wherein
Senator Hill has taken issue with the
president, and perhaps also the contest
growing out of the opposition of the In
diana senators to the nomination of
Judge Woods, of Indiana, to be one of
the new circuit judges.
In the House.
Under the new rules the house, afler
the introduction and report of bills to
morrow, may devote itself to business
relating to the affairs of the District of
Columbia. No bills from the District of
Columbia committee are yet on the cal
endar, and it is not expected that the
district will take up much of the legis
lative delay. Mr. McMillin, of Tenues
see, has been instructed by the way*
and means committee to call up tomor
row the resolution making the custom
ary distribution of parts of the presi
dent's message among the various com
mittees of the house. This is a
formal proceeding, but occasionally
gives rise to some debate.
Contests are expected over several
matters which will be called up in the
house at the first opportunity, though
no time has been fixed for their consid
eration. The most important ot these
are the world's fair investigation reso
lutions reported by the appropriations
committee and the special Columbian
exposition committee. The latter com
mittee will make a strong fight to have
jurisdiction to make the investigation
conferred upon it.
The Free Coinage Bill.
The accounts committee has a report
ready for adoption by the house relat
ing to a comparatively unimportant
matter concerning the organization of
the house, but, as the report has in it
the elements for a spirited debate, the
opportunity is not likely to be lost, and
political speeches are probable with
this report as the text. The rules com
mittee during the week will report, and,
if occasion offers, call up in the house
one or more of the numerous resolutions
of investigation now before it. Per
haps the most interesting feature
of the week, however, -will be
found in the proceedings of the
house coinage committee. which
has made an order that discus
sion shall close and voting begin at 11
o'clock Wednesday on the Bland free
coinage silver bill. Since that order
was made Mr. Bland has introduced a
substitute tor the bill named in the
committee's order, and the session of
Wednesday may possibly be exhausted
betcre the committee reaches a final
vote on tne question of reporting a free
coinage bill to the house. In this event,
an adjournment until the following day
is uot unlikely, as it can be positively
stated to be the intention of the com
mittee to make its report to the house at
an early day.
CAUSES OF IMMIGRATION.
The Commissioners Sent to En
rope Make a Report.
Washington, Feb. 7.— The members
of the commission which visited Europe
for the purpose of investigating the sub
ject of immigration to the United States
have submitted their report to the sec
retary of the treasury. Commissioners
Weber and Kempster made a
joint report, which covers sev
eral propositions furnished by the
treasury department, first as to the
"causes which incite immigration."
These, they state, are the superior con
ditions and advantages in the United
States: higher wages, fewer hours of
labor, better living, freedom from mili
tary duty and burdensome taxation and
regulations involving freedom of move
ment, personal liberty, and better op
portunities for rising to higher social
levels in this country; and in
Russia it is due to religious per
secution. They obtained statistics
from all the great trans-Atlantic steam
ship companies, showing that more than
60 per cent of the immigrants who land
here come upou tickets sent by relatives
or friends who preceded them, and
which are purchased in this country.
As to whether steamship companies
stimulate immigration, they report that
in the countries visited by them this is
forbidden by laws with severe penal
ties, copies of which are appended to
the report. The results of conferences
held with steamship companies at
Liverpool and Bremen are given, in
which the steamship company ex
pressed a determination to be governed
by our laws, and several of the lines
have already issued circulars requiring
all sub-agents to conform with the new
instructions based upon our laws, which
they quote, and the circulars ace ap
As to the importation of contract
laborers, they say congressional legisla
tion, which transferred tne immigration
bureau to federal oversight, has very
largely stopped the wholesale practice
of such operations, and it does now ex
ists to a very large extent. Relative to
the systematic shipment of defectives,
criminals, insane, etc. to this country,
they report that iv the countries
visited by them this is not now
done, although there is no doubt
that it was done formerly. Concerning
pauper immigration they say that if the
standard of pauperism is lobe based
upon money possessions when landed,
it would iv times past have excluded
many who are now prominent in com
mercial. Gnancial and legislative bodias,
and every way worthy as true American
citizens, aud if this standard is now to
be adopted it will exclude those who
may become equally desirable.
Their report gives in detail a method
by which all undesirable emigrants
may be prevented from embarking and
with no expense to the United States.
Briefly, this is to hold all steamship
agents and subagents responsible for
the cost of the returned inelitribles.
On account of the large number of
Jews immigrating from Russia re
cently, a thorough investigation was
made of the causes existing in
that country which produce this
outflow, and Commissioners Weber and
Kempster spent most of their time there
and eive a full account of the methods
pursued, which if continued will cause
the emigration of a population number
ing 5,000,000 or 7,000,000, not only of
Jews, but of all non-members of the
orthodox Greek church, and they sup
plement their report with a translation
of the edicts, ukases and regu
lations . first inviting these peo
ple into Russia, then expelline
them, together with a copy ot
the restrictive law. Also they show
the pressure brought to bear by the
Russian government against Lutherans,
Roman Catholics, Stundists and mem
bers of other religious denominations.
Their conclusions are thac the terrible
persecutions are based almost entirely
upon religious grounds, and must, if
continued, drive out the entire popula
tion of the so-called unorthodox.
These conclusions are based on per
sonal examination and conversation
with people of all classes in the Russian
dominions. In those countries visited
by Commissioner Cross he found that so
far as the causes inciting emigration
are concerned the same general condi
tion exists above described—
lation, lack of labor in the ag
ricultural districts, low wages and
the letters describing the better condi
tions here, which are often accompanied
by prepaid tickets or money sent by the
pioneer emigrants to the younger peo
ple, either relatives or friends left be
hind; and that in some districts in
Ireland one sees only old people, the
young persons having all gone to Amer
ica, lie states that he has personal
knowledge of the fact that, in the
Northwestern states tickets are sold
on six months' time, and sent to Eng
land and Norway for intending emi
grants. In Italy, he says that emigra
tion is incited to a very large extent oy
the efforts of the steamship agents, who
are everywhere there and very active.
Relative to the employment of con
tract laborers for exportation to the
United States, he says that he was not
successful iv finding many cases,
although he is under the im
pression that there are individual
cases of persous who return to Europe
at the instance of employers to bring
out operatives. Commissioner Cross
says that there is a systematic landing
on our shores of the convicts of Great
Britain, aud he has positive proof that
from Eugland, Ireland and Scotlaud
during the last eleven years there has
been a systematic, widespread and
thoroughly organized movement known
and encouraged and patronized
by the government of Great Britain for
the purpose of sending convicts and ex
convicts to the United States; the pass
age and money to keep them while
seeking employmeut here is furnished
directly by the government of Great
Britain, expended through "discharged
prisoner's aid societies," which are pro
vided for by the "act for
the more effective prevention of
crime," passed Aug. 21, 1871,
and amendments thereto; and that
by this systematic deportatiou of con
victs and ex-convicts the numbers under
surveillance has been reduced from
20,000 in 1870 to 12,000 in 1891.
Commissioner Powderly favors the
appointment of agents, who should be
directly responsible to the United States
government, and whose duty it would
be to issue certificates to those who can
furnish a certificate from the munici
pality whence he comes showiuz good
character, sound health, and that he
has never been convicted of a crime,
and that unless the intending;
emierant can produce such a document
he should not be permitted to embark.
A duplicate of this certificate should be
sent to the inspection officer of the port
to which a ship sails. There should be
a sufficient number of such agents to do
the work effectively, but he say 3 that
this plan will be useless unless the
Canadian border is carefully guarded.
Concerning those who come from
abroad to work here in the summer and
return home to spend the winter, he
says that he was informed at Glasgow
that about four-fifths of the emigrants
who leave that country (Scotlaud) in the
spring return again in the fall, but that
from the other countries this movement
was of very small proportion.
; Commissioner Schulteis reports the
causes that incite emigration from the
countless countries he visited to be the
better condition of laborers in this coun
try contrasted with their own, the in
creased facilities of reaching this coun
try, the speed of ocean steamships, and
especially the advertisements settiug
forth the marvelous beauty of this
country ane that land is to be
had goatis from the government.
The centralization of land and
money in the hands of a non-producing
aristocracy will eventually force whole
populations to emigrate. Th restrict
emigration Comn-issioner Schulteis sug
gests the appointment of resident com
missioners at Londou and Naples, with
agents under them who must report to
the treasury department cases iv con- ,
tlict with. our laws, rigid inspection at
our ports and along the frontiers, and a
protective per capita tax on all immi
