A TRUANT BAND.
If you care to look at it that way,
there is something very pathetic in the
case of those uuappreciative pupils who
played truant from the Genoa Indian
school the other day. There were eight
een of them, bis, bronzed children of
the wilderness, and, like other children
who are thrust out into a world that is
new and strange, they were homesick.
"Nostalgia" their scientific educators
•would probably call it; but homely
homesickness is what it amounted to.
They despaired of learning the white
man's ways, or of ever liking their, even
when learned. Their untutored minds
could not be tutored up to the point ot
appreciating the benelicent effects of
the civilizing process prescribed for
them by their philanthropic Uncle
Sam. Their hearts turned with long
ing to the old scenes, the old
uutrammeled life of the forest and
prairie. It was shockingly bad taste, I
and against all the canons of culture, j
but culture wasn't what they went in !
for; and so, without a dollar in the
pockets of their white man's clothes,
impelled and guided only by that des
perate homesickness that was on them,
they glided forth in the sight and
struck out for Arizona, a thousand miles •
Of course they were followed, over- j
taken and whisked back in an hour's
time over the twenty weary miles they I
had tramped toward home and freedo m. I
It was for their own good we know i
that- because all scientific humani- J
tarians and theoretical philanthropists
tell us so. Education and civilization
are what they want, whether they know
it or not; and so, when we express a fur
tive sympathy for these truants, and
confess an indefensible inclination to re
gret their capture, we do it in a most
apologetic manner, and do not for a
moment presume to draw conclusions
with the scientific humanitarians above
MEDIiEVAIiISM IN" IOWA.
That is a rich ana rare revival of
medieval romance which is furnished
forth from the neighborhood of Inde
pendence, the trotting-horse metropolis
of lowa. There is none of your in
sipid, fin de siecle five-o'clock tea flavor !
about this story. On the contrary, it is
Quite sufficiently vigorous and brutal to'
have been purloined bodily from the
faded heart of some musty old middle
age tome. It has to do with the dear,
delightful courtship methods of ye
olden days, when ye tender lover
yanked ye obdurate maiden off with
him to his moated and buttressed castle,
and there, by his winning ways, taught
her to rejoice incessantly that her "no"
had cut no figure in the case. To be
sure, this lowa lover labored under
a handicap as regards the castle;
- but a levee hotel in I)es Jloines
answered the purpose fairly well, and
the river obligingly jumped its banks
and contributed the moat. And then,
too, to make amends for the omission of
the castle and other scenic effects, the
bold abductor puts into his role a real
istic intensity of ruffianism that renders
it comparatively easy to forget the in
harmoniously modern mise en scene.
The obdurate maiden, poor girl, has a
very rough time of it, and she doesn't
readily fall into line with mediaeval
methods. Her lines, too. rather lower
the tone of the episode, and when she
tells the court that she "had been keep
ing company with him (the abductor)
for two years, but had given him up."
one can't help wishing she had ex«
pressed it a little differently— had said,
for instance, that the varlet had sued
for tier smiles and beon repelle<i with
scorn and contumely. The symmetry
of the atTair is further marred, more
over, by the fact that the court she tells
her story to is not the gaily-bodight royal
court which iv former times was mixed
up in so many matters of this kind, but
■ lilain, prosaic police court. Of course,
media'valism can't make much head
way agaiiwt the adverse conditions of
a iwlioe court; ami we therefore suggest
that this feature of the case bo now
abandoned altogether, and that a very
large allowance" of nineteenth-cent lry
justice be measured out to this villain
ous, swashbuckling suitor.
THE MKSE OK MEDIOCRITY.
One would not know whether to
laugh or cry if out of it all came Bkx
jamix BAKKISOJt Months of hard
work spent in ureparation, a hundred
thousand dollars of money gone, dele
gates and sightseers from every quarter
of the country, noise and confusion,
eloquence aud music, the nation ou tip
toe in eager expectancy, and from the
womb of the mountaiu emerges the In
dianapolis attorney. Could any anti
climax be more absurd? And yet this
is the logic of the situation. The lead
ers of the party shrink from admitting
it. They cheer themselves with de
lusive dreams of bigger things. With
the instinctive American distaste for
the commonplace, they refuse to submit
until it is proved that their protests are
unavailing. It is a beautiful spectacle,
this war between circumstances »nd as
pirations. Our triends, the enemy,
would put at the head of their column a
man equal to the honor and the respon
sibility. They love the great, the brave,
the strong. They would have their
standard-bearer valiant, bold, capable,
inspiring. And yet what can they do?
They are bound hand and foot by fetters
of their own forging. Born as a party
of freedom, they have grown to be the
champions of slavery, and out of such a
soil are born none of the rugged.ageres
sive personalities of the kind they seek
for a leader. The breasts throbbing
with noble enthusiasm, the brains alert
to analyze ami discover, the souls fired
with unselfish ambition to rout human
ity's oppressors, find no encouragement
or welcome iv ranks drilled to fisrht the
monopolists' cause. Theirs is an atmos
phere in which mediocrity thrives, and
where the higher, robuster natures are
stifled. The Republicans never again
will follow a leader fit to lead until they
stand for principles worthy a leader's
Whether Bi.aine is really in it of his
own volition or not, he is being hit by
the Hakiusox fighters with the lightest
suspicion of gloves. Should he discover
at the last moment, when the adminis
tration forces have him under the band
wagon, that he had never intended to
allow the use of his name, there will be
sore places scattered about his anatomy.
Whatever his came, he does not mean
for EL&B8I8OH to take the trick. That
fact crops out with no sort of dubious
ness. Aside from what may be called
family and domestic grievances, ll.vn
kisov has intimated in his speeches
that the secretary was making claims
in the management of foreign matters
that put the credit in the wrong quar
ter. His eyesight has been equal to
this observation without any aid from
the oculist. Reciprocity is his pet, and
the petty larceny of the White house
occupant, or attempt to appropriate tiie
credit, has not contributed to the mag
nanimity and serenity of the premier.
Then the withdrawal of his name under
the hot lire, directed at him with appar
ent success, will carry with it the mor
tifying suspicion that it was the final
resource to avert defeat. It may be
predicted tiiat he will never feel well
enough to make a campaign speech in
favor of the eiection of Haurxson*. The
workers for the latter ate not fully ex
pressing their feeling, but they think
very much as a Republican senator is
reported by the Washington corre
spondent of the St. Louis Republic as
speaking in an unguarded moment:
'•Bf.ai.se is a trk-kster and a liar. If
he is encouraging the idea of nominating him
for president, I say it unequivocally that he
lied to the president, and that he has lied to
nearly nil the members of the cabinet and to
many Republicans in the senate mid house
of representative* who have talked to him
during the past year. I think his conduct, if
he is seriously thinking of taking the nomi
nation, dishonorable in the extreme. Ho
ought to have withdrawn from the cabinet
the moment he even contemplated being dis
loyal to the president's fortunes, aud if I
were in President Harrison's ptace, notwith
standing Blaise's greatness aud his popu
larity, I would flip him as quick a3 a wink
aud put some honorable man on whom I
could rely at the head of the state depart
Secretary Foster has put this feeling
in more euphemistic words, but has left
no doubt that his mind runs in the same
channel. Mr. Bi.aixe has not needed
to consult an aurist, so far aa known.
He hears all that is being said, and
crinds his teeth. The most plausible
solution of his attitude is that he would
make it uncomfortable, if not impos
sible for Harrison' to be the nominee;
and then, with an innocent air, affect
surprise that any could suppose he had
ever tolerated any use of his name.
But he will not then feel well enough
to remain at Washington.
FOR STRANGERS TO SEE.
Some weeks ago the Globe urged
that preparations be made to beautify
the city in advance of the Republican
convention. It called attention to the
fact that many strangers would be here
from abroad, that the impression we
were to make on them should be a fa
vorable one, that our streets should be
swept aud garnished, our buildings
adorned, and the illuminations which
have been so successful in past years
should be again repeated. Col. Wright
was in the East at the time of this ap
peal, and this paper called on him to re
turn and take charge of the work. It is
now too late to do anything of
tins kind adequately, aud the Globe
is versatile enough to find con
solations in the situation. Since
we have [neglected this opportunity,
the proper attitude to take is that on
the whole it was not worth while to
embrace it. Festoons ar.d banners are
tawdry things at the best, and we do
not care to be measured by such arti
ficial adornments. The visitor whose
good opinion is to be prized would not
be influenced in this way. In Minneap
olis they arc distributing badges carry
ing on their face the story of the city's
prosperity. Lumber and flour have
made Minneapolis what it is, and our
wealth is based on our railroads and our
jobbing trade. Our busy streets in the
wholesale district and the great net
work of tracks to be seen from Dayton's
bluff leave little untold in these direc

. THE SNAP GIVEN AWAY.
It may have a flavor of inhospitaiity
and ungraciousness to look away
toward November while the Republican
friends are thronging the streets and
gathering their impressions of the viva
cious and ambitious twins, who are
justly elated at the honor done them.
But a great portion of the visitors will
be bitterly disappointed at the results
of the convention, and some alleviation
of their sorrows may be had in the real
ization that the November gales will
give a melancholy dirge as they whistle
through the whiskers of the men to
be named on the ticket. Perhaps .
the Nebraska man was . premature
in giving the snap away. lie might
have waited until after the victims had
been designated. \ But he has emitted
the feline. The Democrats are to turn
over the electoral votes of Kansas. Ne
braska, Minnesota and South Dakota to
the People's party. By skirmishing
around a little the revelator might per
haps have found a few more states that
could be picked out of the Republican
table, but these are Quite enough. Pull
the SI votes of these states out of the Re
publican list, and the most expert men of
figures have a task to find 223 electoral
votes to be gathered in for the Republi
can ticket. They may even take New
Yofk and fail to work out a satisfactory
result. The Democrats will not be
able, of course, to enlarge their col
umns by turning over these states to the
third party, but they are kindly inclined,
and would have the young and inexperi
enced organization encouraged by get
ting into the electoral college. If the
result should be that no choice could be
had by that body, and the election
thrown into the house, the Democrats
are fortunately well provided for that
exigency. The Republicans can guess
successfully at the outcome. Still, they
can have all the fun there is in a hot
The rural communities, at least, will
overlook many of the shortcomings of
congress of late if i f will act favorably
upon the multitude of petitions to ex
tend the postal delivery to the country
districts. The postmaster general has
been giving the subject some attention,
but he is apt to be busy in the campaign,
and may not press the matter. It is out-,
side of politics and the old platforms,
and may be indorsed by every one
without apprehension. In view of
some recent appropriation bills that
whirled through congress, the ques
tion of expense • need not be con
sidered. Other departments of the
government are not sjlf-suppjrting.
More than one-third the population
of the country live on farms, and the
greater part of them can bi reached by
a reasonable extension of the free de
ivery system. The leading nations of .
Europe, and even some of the Oriental
anils, are in advance of the United '
States in this matter. There is really
greater need of free delivery in the
country than in the city. Residents of
the towns have easy access to the post
office, wnile the rural population is de
nied the facilities the service should af
ford for them. It is to be regretted that
the fanners cannot have this extension
the present campaign. It is to be a
newspaper, educational campaign, and
its best parts will not be possessed in a
large way by those not in daily touch
with the outside world.
The fight at Bismarck Thursday be

• Washington, Jane 3.— Just as the
secretary of state was leaving the
White house this afternoon and was
walking to - his carriage he was ap
proached by a reporter, who asked him
several questions in regard to his con
ference with the Canadian commission,
and then changing . the . subject re
minded the secretary that . in case he

In regard to the political situation the
public would like to have it. The sec
retary smiled, and without seeming to
attach any importance to what he was
saying, remarked: "That's all right, but
there won't be any more oommunica
tions." He then changed the subject of
conversation and courteously averted
any further reference to it.
Secretary Elaine met the president
this morning for the first time in ten
days at the regular cabinet meeting,
which was convened at 11 o'clock. Mr.
Blame came in promptly with Secre
tary El kins, and the two walked to tee
cabinet room together. In the cabinet
room all the members had assembled
except Secretary Tracy. Mr. Blame re
mained only about fifteen minutes,
when he left and drove over to his resi
dence and then to the conference at the
state department. The cabinet meeting
continued until shortly before 1 o'clock.
"Very Inside Relations." .
New York, June 3.— Herald this
morning publishes what purports to be
the "very inside of Mr. Harrison and
Mr. Blaihe's relations with each other,"
given by "a man of undoubted authority
iv the White house circle," The situa
tion is said to be as follows:
Before Mr. Blame came to New York
he called on the president, and in sub
stance to him said: "In connection with
my visit to New York you will probably
hear that it has a political meaning. A
construction may ba put on it that will
please neither you nor me. I wish to
say to you that I am not a candidate for
the. nresidency, and I hope you will not
credit. any of these stories that are float
ing about." ' .
To those words of Mr. Blame Mr.
Harrison is said to have replied: "I am
much gratified at your open dealing
with me. I had supposed you felt that
way toward a nomination, although
some persons have tried to persuade me
A Rumored Personal Letter.
■ Indianapolis, June 3.— A friend
of Consul General New says that the
latter told him just before leaving for
Minneapolis that President Harrison
was not at all worried over the efforts
of Blame's friends to force him upon
the party as a candidate, and that Har
rison has a personal letter from Blame
that would settle the matter in a mo
ment if he should make it public. New
said Harrison would not give it to the
press because he believed he would
be nominated' without a : struggle,
and ■ it was unnecessary 'to in
ject any '.personal matters, .into
the campaign for the nomination: Be
sides, he. feels that he is entitled to an
expression from the convention un
biased.by any such influences, and he
proposes to stand or fall by his record.
New also says that the letter reiter
ated Blame's determination not to be a
candidate, and there could be no mis
take about it, for he had seen and read
the letter. The Harrison men say that
the president sustains a very different
relation to the convention from that of
other supposed candidate?, for, while
Alger or Sherman might feel it a com
pliment to be nominated even after
Blame had secured the plum and thrown
it from him, Harrison could not afford
to do so, for it would make him the
laughing stock of the country.
Important Amendments to the
Washington*, June 3.- In committee
of the whole house today Mr. Holman,
of Indiana, offered an amendment pro
viding that no part- of the money ap
propriated for the transportation of
foreign mails shall be expended in the
carryinsr out of any contract made here
' after under the Dro visions of the act to
provide for ocean mail service between
the United States and foreign ports.
Mr. Scott, of Illinois, offered an
amendment providing that no pair, of
the appropriation for stamped envelopes
shall be used to pay for or furnish
stamped envelopes having the names of
any business firm, corporation or adver
tising device printed thereon, and mak
ing it unlawful for the postmaster gen
eral to have requests for the return of
letters printed on any envelope sold by
the postoffice department; provided,
however, that the department may con
tinue to furnish stamped envelopes con
taining the words: "If not delivered
within ten days return to — ."
Mr. Castle, of Minnesota, raised a
point of order against section 3 of
the bill, which reduces the compensa
tion to be paid by land grant railroads
for mail transportation to 5n per cent
of. the rates charged private parties,
Mr. Hayes, of lowa, moved to strike
out the section. Pending action the
committee rose and the house took a
recess until 8 o'clock, the evening ses
sion to be for the consideration of
private pension bills.

PRETTY CANNON FALLS.
A Trip to the Town by Gen. R. W.
&ii'}^. :[\:\-jx Johnson.
Being invited to take part in the decoration
cervices nt Cannon Fall*. I lelt St. Paul on
the morning of the 30th on the Kansas City
and arrived at Randolph about 'J o'clock.
Here I bad to remain several hours to await
the arrival of the train on the Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul railway. While here I
mat Joseph Lee, who informed me that he
was eighty-seven and Ills wife eighty-nine
years old. He -came to this country from
England, and expressed a great desire to.dis
pose of his < property in . this country and to
return to his live land, where he could '"do
better" than in this country. ' It occurred to
- me that should 1 be fortunate enough to at
taiu unto his age. my thoughts will, be of a
country quite different from England. The
train arrived and at I£. o'clock I reached the
beautiful town of Cannon .Pails, located at
the junction of tho Litile and Big Cannon
rivers. I never saw the country looking
prettier.. It was a glorious day. Ail nature
smiled in the primitive' beauty of spring
time. -On either '• ! de stretched the earth in
billowy surfaces, carpeted with the beautiful
and variegated hues of tender, opening flow
ers. Forests, fields and lawns followed each
other in rapid succession, giving variety and
interest to the entire trip. Cannon Falls was
in its gala day attire.
From every residence and from every busi
ness house the stars and stripes were to be
seen. ■' The streets were thronged with people
from the : neighboring towns and farms, all
intent upon showing their love for the mem
ories of. the dead heroes who lost their lives
in defense of our beloved country.
It was my first visit to the town, and it was
a surprise to me to rind a place i-o beautiful
within forty miles of St. Paul. The water
power furnished by the Cannon river is suffi
cient to run all the \ manufacturing enter
prises in the state. The lands in that neigh
borhood are Hen and fertile, adapted to the
growth of nil the cereals usually cultivated
in Minnesota. For a long time wheat was the
principal production, but of late years stock
growing and the dairy business here became
the prevailing occupations of the people,
thus diversifying the industries of the state,
and adding greatly, to their individual
wealth. I stopped at Hotel Shellburne, kept
by Mr. and Mrs. Applegate, who know full
well how to cater to the appetites of the
hungry. ■ " . ;
Churches are numerous enough, so that
whatever the faith and belief of one may
be he can readily find a church home. The
public schools are second to none in the state.
Miss Williamson had charge of the primary
department, composed of fifty-three urchins,
a family somewhat larger than I would care
to look "after, but she preserved most excel
lent discipline and seemed to be '"the right
woman in the right place."
There are a few persons short-sighted
enough to oppose the public school system,
and possibly it has been enlarged beyond its
first conception, yet when we remember that
the stability and perpetuity of our institu
tions are dependent upon the education of
the masses, no right-thinking person should
oppose the instrumentality through which
our children are to be instructed so as to
enable them to exercise the rights of intelli
The dry goods, grocers, hardware and farm
machinery merchants seemed to be doing a
prosperous business. In fact, I found a beau
tiful, thriving town on the minks of the
Cannon river, with a population of about
1,500, composed of intelligent, refined, wide
awake people. After a sojourn of a couple
of days I returned home, bringing with me
pleasant memories of the courtesy and kind
ness of the good people of that beautiful
little town. K. If. jouxsos.
Frozen When They Died, and
Their Hones Covered the Plains.
In his book on "The Mammoth and
the Floo;l," Mr. Iloworth advances a
new theory with regard to the remains
of mammoths and other large animals
in the soil of Siberia. All over this
great plain, wherever the ground is
frozen bard, are found mammoths and
other animals preserved- very fresh, so
that the wolves and bears can feed
upon their remains. - -..:■'.'
These" mammoths' have been found
from the eastern border clear to the Obi
river. Tney have been found under
conditions which make it certain that
they could not have lived, unless the
surroundings ami climate had. at the
time they existed, been entirely differ
ent from the present conditions. The
remains of the plants on which they fed
are also found, and Southern contempo
rary shells are discovered with the re
mains, pointing to climatic conditions
which no longer exist.
Mr. Howorth believes that this pla
teau is one or the most recent features
in thekrown physical geography of the
world, and that its rapid elevation
caused the tremendous change of cli
mate which has enabled the bodies of
the great beast to be preserved intact as
we find them. He says that, unless these
animals had been frozen immediately af
ter they died. ami remained frozen to this
day, they would certainly have decayed
and .disappeared. A single Siberian
summer sun would, have destroyed
them completely. It is known that
further east the bones ot great
animals have been found 17,000 feet
above the sea under conditions which
Falconer declared to bi absolutely in
compatible with their mood of life.

that R. Buchanan, a strong anti-Petti

planning a movement to fuse the Inde
pendent and Prohibition parties and to
induce . the aggregation to make him
the nominee for governor. Buchanan
has also a hook out for the Republican
nomination. He will not be able to
carry his homo county, but is likely to
make the plea before the state conven
tion that he is a martyr to the cause of
prohibition, and he may be able to
swing the state into line over the Min
nehaha delegation. This county is not
popular politically through the state,
and such a nomination might be made
in order to emphasize the rebuke. Al
together the situation, from a Demo
cratic standpoint, is most agreeable.
