Ahe's Pels. j
New York, Oct. 2.— Before his regir ]
lar sermon of today Rev. Thomas bison
Jr. delivered another of his character
istic talks. Today his subject was the
'•Garfield Race Track," ot which he said i
"Gariicld Park in Chicago has for
years openly defied the moral sentiment
of the nation. It has been an open
slaughter pen in which manhood, honor,
decency, truth and virtue were daily
butchered. It was the favored resort of
the most desperate classes of the scum
of the world. The people of Chicago J
were recently shocked at the foul mur- |
der of two policemen by a deperado
gambler on these grounds. And if the
people of Chicago tolerate such a hell
hole in their midst, wet with the blood
oi the officers of the law, they should
takedown their statue in llaymarket
square and confess that civic order has
tailed after ail. Garfield track is typ
ical of the race track today. The whole
dirty business is ot the same piece. The
conscience o! this nation has outgrown
it. The race track must go as the lot
tery has gone. The plain fact is that
the lottery is a small evil compared
with the races."

Serious State of Affairs on a Mis
Ci.ai:k<l).\i.i:, Miss., Oct. 2.— Sheriff
Harris was notified early this morning
by Deputy Fitzgerald, of Friar's Point,
to at once organize an armed posse and
proceed to the plantation of J. O. Wil
kinson, a large planter west of Bobe, a
small station eight miles south of this
place, to put down an insurrection
among the negroes in that locality
against the whites. Sheriff Harris
promptly complied, and in a short time
had an armed posse consisting of
twenty-seven men. from this place and
Friar's Point, moving to the scene.
Authentic information has just been
received that two negroes were killed
outright and nine captured, and are
now on the way to Friar's Point, heav
ily guarded. In addition to the two
negioes killed, several are said to be
mortally wounded. The negrees look
to the brush and are still out, all armed.
None of the whites are reported hurt.
From confessions made by some of
the negroes, it is learned that they have
organized an order among themselves
comprising the whole neighborhood,
with passwords and grips, with the
avowed purpose of killing the whites.
The greatest excitement prevails. The
negroes are thoroughly organized, and
tears are entertained that the end has
not been reached. Mr. Sessions, man
ager of the plantation, was fired upon
three times yesterday, but was not hurt.
The town is without telegraphic facii

The Anti-Snappers Resolve to Put
Up a Ticket.
New Yoijk, Oct. 2.— The committee
appointed by the anti-snapper organ
ization for tlie purpose of advising with
the Democratic national committee on
the subject of local nominations held a
meeting at their headquarters hero to
niiiht. Most of the members were pres
ent, and it was decided unanimously to
go ahead aud support an independent
ticket. The following announcement
was made after the meeting by Chair
man Andrew D. Patter:
"The committee tonight appointed a
siib-coniniittee consistiiiir of myself,
Isaac Klein and J. J. Quinlan. for the
purpose of conferring with other Demo
cratic organizations on the lines indi
cated by the resolution previously
passed by the organization.
"Muclj has been said about the op
position with which the idea of a third
ticket has been met by the national
committee. 1 wish to state right here,
and the members of the committee will
back me up in what 1 say, that not a
word of objection or protest was raised
at the conference held by this commit
tee with the gentlemen of the national
committee who met us, viz: Messrs.
Harrity, Dickinson, Smaller and
Quinoy, save one member. The im
pression has gained circulation that the
idoa of a tnird ticket was violently op
posed, yet only one out of the four gen
tlemen said a word in opposition.
"I wish further to speak of the atti
tude of ex-Mayor Grace. Not eat Her
than last Friday night Mr. Grace gave
Ins positive assurance that the nomina
tion of a third ticket was the only
proper and wise step to take."
Mr. Parker's statements were vicor
ously sustained by Messrs. Quinlan,
Slevin, Jeroloman and others who were
present. In reply to interrogations,
Mr. Parker said:
"Among the organizations with
which we will confer will be the County
Democracy and the German-American
Cleveland and Stevenson union. We
•are well aware that the latter organiza
tion, by reason of its constitution, can
not act with us as a body, but we do not
propose to treat with it as a body.
We believe, however, that they
are favorably disposed toward us, and
will be our active allies. As for any re
ported opposition in their ranks to the
third party idea, I have heard of none.
On the contrary, the head of the or
ganization, Oswald Ottendorrer, has
stated distinctly that he was not pre
pared to state his position as yet. and
men of no less importance in the organ
ization than Henry Yiilard and Jackson
S. Sclmltze have declared themselves
in favor of an independent ticket."
STORM AT LAVACA.
Many Boats Are Destroyed — Some
Gai.vkstox, Tex.. Oct. 2.— A special
from Lavaca says : Last night a furious
gale swept "Lavaca bay. It was the
most severe hurricane since he mem
arable one of ISBG. The harbor was
full of boats, as it was meeting day for
the Fish and Oyster union. The wind
sprang up from the northeast
in the afternoon and continued to
increase in velocity until an hour after
midnight. During the evening there
were slims of an approaching storm,
and a few boats put down into Choco
late bay for better harbor. At 1:80
o'clock the wind had attained the high
est velocity, and continued until after 3
a. m. Over twenty boats were badly
damaged. Koine were totally destroyed.
A number of buildings near the shore
were wrecked. No lives were lost. :No
estimate of the damage has yet been
made, as a number of boats have not
been beard from. On account of these
latter much anxiety is felt.

TALES OFTHE PARAMO
The Deadliest Peril Which
Menaces Travelers in
A Terrible Vapor Charged
With Gases That Freeze
the Heart's Blood.
Only When It Is Disturbed
Does the Paramo
And When * It Strikes Its
Blow Is Certain
A curious story has come down from
the Cordilleran steeps of Los Andes,
says a Caracas correspondent of the
New York Recorder. Four scouts from
a detachment of government troops met
three scouts belonging to a party of
revolutionists in the center of a paramo
in the mountains some distance from
Caracbe. Without stopping to think of
the consequences, one of the soldiers
raised his gun and Bred upon the revo
lutionists. Instantly the paramo dis
solved, and the seven men fell dead.
This is supposition only, since no
man lived to tell how it happened. All
that is known is that the men were
found dead in the paramo, without so
nnich as a scratch upon them, but the
rifle of one of the soldiers contained au
empty cartridge. Beyond a!l doubt the
men had been killed by the strange ter
ror of the mountains. Thereby hangs
a remarkable story of this most remark
What is a paramo? Frankly, Ido not
know. There are many, many strange
things in this tropical region "that Ido
not pretend to explain. From all that
1 can learn a paramo seems to be a vis
ible breath of death. It is a sort of
heavy mist, or fog. It lurks on remote
mountain heights like a monster lying
in wait for human prey; it covers its
place of execution with a white shroud,
and hides from the eyes of the world its
deed of wanton murder.
The paramo is deadly only when dis
turbed. Fire a gun, blow" a horn, or
even shout aloud and the vengeful
agent will instantly take your life and
leave you there to let your friends
wonder how you died. The only safety
is silence. Even then a word spoken
above a whisper, or the rattling of a
loose rock may arouse the murderous
wrath of the monster of the Andes.
Perpetual brooding silence— a silence
unbroken by song of bird or chirp of in
sect—is the awful law of the paramo.
The penalty of disobedience is instant
death. A mysterious, awesome thing is
What is its origin? How does it act?
No man knows. Any one may con
jecture quite as well as the learned per
sons known as scientists, and come" as
near the true solution. The theory is
that the paramo is heavily charged with
some sort of gas or vapor so unstable in
its chemical structure that it breaks at
concussion into other gases.one.at least.
Of them being so terribly potent as U)
instantly freeze tiie heart's blood of the
victim within its grasp.
Paramos are of different sizes, from
the small one that may be passed in ten
minutes' cautious walking to the fright
ful nionste r that keeps the apprehensive
traveler walking fot the best part ..of
two days. There is one paramo in the
region of Merida, in the state of Los
Andes, that is so large that the traveler
is compelled to camp in it one night.
At that camp no fire may be lighted and
no word spoken aloud. A gruesome
Usually the paramos are not so large
but that the traveler may avoid them
by making a detour of a few miles.
The monster near Merida, however, is
too large for that manner of escape. If
the traveler goes through that part of
the country he must face the deadly
Slain in au Instant.
There are many stories of the sudden
wrath of the paramo. Some of the most
interesting go back to the time of the
Spanish occupation. Two will serve
my present purpose. During the pre
paratory outbreaks of the war for South
American independence, which began
in Caracas, a detachment of Spanish
troops, in command of a proud and hot
headed Castilian officer, had occasion
to pass through a paramo on the upper
heights of the Cordilleras, near Merida,
in wiiat is now the Venezuelan state of
Los Andes. Natives warned the Spanish
officer not to go through the paramo, but
the proud commander scoffed at the
warning, and made ready to march.
Again the natives warned him to avoid
above, all tilings the firing of guns, the
blowing of horns, or the making of any
noise. The officer laughed in his pride,
mounted his horse, and marched gayly
away, with drums tapping and banners
flaunting in the tropical sun.
In the very center of the paramo the
disdainful Castilian ordered his military
band to play and his soldiers to fire
their guns. He probably meant to teach
those ignorant, superstitious natives a
lesson. The music swelled and re
echoed from the mountain ■ sides, p.nd
the guns roared out an angry challenge:
Then the paramo awoke, It trembled
a .houkmil. as though in rage, and then
smote the cavalcade dead in an instant.
Natives on a neighboring mountain
ridge heard the tumult burst forth; and
when it ceased a nionitnt afterward
they went down to the paramo and
walKed along the trail. It was a strange,
ghastly sight that they came upon.
Rider, horse, soldiers, musicians lay
dead in the dust. Since that fateful day
this paramo has been called theParame
de Battalion, in honor of the brave bat
talion that met death there.
On another occasion during the same
period of time a body of Spanish troops
inarched to attack a small garrison of
natives in the -mountains. On the way
was a paramo, which the Spaniards
knew nothing about. While they were
approaching it, a native fastened an old
bell-mouthed musket to a tree near the
trail, and attached to the trigger a long
string, which he carefully carried down
the mountain side to a point below the
danger line of the paramo. When the
Spaniards reached the center of the
paramo the native pulled the string and
thereby fired the gun. The paramo dis
solved and the Spaniards dropped dead
in the trail. - .;

-Cleveland Nails a Few of Them in
.' . a Bunch.
• Atlanta, Oct,'2.— ln his campaign
speeches Tom Watson has repeatedly
charged that Mr. Cleveland declined (o
allow his wife to go to Richmond several
years ago because he feared she would
be brought in contact with Miss Winnie
Davis. Mr. Cleveland has written the
following .to Clark Howell, national
committeeman from. Georgia, in reply:
Gray Gables, Buzzard's Bay. Mass.,
Sept. Clark Howell Jr., Atlanta,
Ga.— Dear Sir: 1 have been fairly bom
barded for the past two or. three weeks
by the reports of the falsehoods which
are being circulated by the Peo
ple's party and other -Southern
organizations, circulated : to .prejudice
me in the minds of the Southern people.
The latest report comes to me ' from
Gainesville, in your state, this evening,
and represents Candidate Thomas E.
Watson as saying in a public
speech that Mrs. Cleveland refused
to attend the unveiling .of the
statue of Robert E. Lee because she
feared she would there mccl Miss Win
nie Davis. This is entirely a new fab
rication. A number of the others have
to do. however, with alleged refusals of
my wife or myself to be introduced to
Miss Davis, etc. Another prolific
source of falsehoods of the stu
pidest description is in regard
to mv treatment of Frederick
Douglass while I was president ana he
was register of deeds in Washington.
There are some others I do not defi
nitely recall. These all seem to be
circulated by active opponents of the
Democratic party, and their purpose
is, of course, apparent. . 1 have not
thought it necessarry to deny these
except in a very few cases. 1
thought when they assumed proportions
worthy of notice 1 would probably hear
from you or some other person who un
derstands the Southern people. Such
reports are irritating and exceedingly
monstrous. Not one single statement
which I have seen of the kind
above referred to has any truth in
it whatever, except this, that when
Frederick K. Douglass was in public of
fice in the city of Washington, I as
president of the United States, ex
tended to him the same courtesies, as
far as public receptions and matters of
that kind are concerned, which were
extended to other officials of the same
grade. This, of course, was his due as
a matter of official decency and eti
quette, and 1 should have been ashamed
to treat him otherwise.
If in your judgment you think it will
do any good to make the denial above
referred to, you are at liberty to do so
in any way you think best. Very truly
yours, Gkoveh Cleveland.

THE GRANITE CUTTERS, B£§
Their Strike Likely to Last All
Babbe, Vt., Oct. 2.— lt appears that
the contest between the granite cutters
and dealers is not yetfully settled here.
The trouble now is over tool sharpen
ers. During the live months' suspen
sion of business many dealers secured
apprentice tool sharpeners, and when
the . strike was settled a number of
union sharpeners were unable to ob
tain employment, owing to several
small firms having apprentice sharpen
ers and miow employing men enough
to engage another blacksmith. The
union claims that such dealers are not
standing by the next bill of prices,"
which provides for one apprentice tool
sharpener to each journejman sharp
ener. The union says that the firms
employing no journeymen and one ap
prentice sharpener are breaking the
agreement. It is understood that the
union strike committee, has the matter
in hand. A few cutters; have already
left the sheds where the trouble exists.
The dealers say they will not discharge
apprentices to please the blacksmiths.
It is thought that if the men are ordered
out again the strike will last all winter.

$5,000 a year to discontinue his compet
itive buying of wheat at one of the sta
tions in the Northwest. The eJort of
Mr. Pillsbury, who was assumed to be
the mouthpiece of the combination, h as
been to show that this contract was
with the Minneapolis & Northern Ele
vator company, and not a part and par
cel of a transaction affecting the com
bination. The Herald has already shown
that a pro rata share of the money paid
to Wolcott was supplied by A. Bettin
gen & Co., millers at Larimore, who,
though they bought grain at Larimore
to make an independent market and
paid higher pricea than
The Combine Paid.
yet were induced subsequently to join
the combine and pay a lower price.
They contributed what would seem to
be a disproportionate amount of the
expenses attached to the stifling of Wol
cott's competition. As further evidence
that the contract with Wolcott was
not a matter which the Minneapolis
& Northern Elevator company
alone entered into is the conduct
of Amsden in this connection.
Payments on the contract * came
due and there were delays in the pay
ments. Wolcott went to see Amsden,
and Amsden said to him that when he
entered into the contract he had a
promise from other parties to contribute
toward the expenses. Wolcott says he
stated to Amsdeu that he had never
known anybody but the Minneapolis
& Northern Elevator company in
connection with this contract, and that
his contract was with that company.
Amsden was asked, so the story goes,
whom he was expecting help from, and
he replied that J. (I. iiiland, general
manager of the Minneapolis Millers'
association, had agreed to charge the
entire sum of ?:20,000, which was $T,,000
per year for live years, to the expense
account of that organization, but lliland
had now gone back on that agreement,
expressing a fear of an investigation if
such a large amount was charged to the
expense account of the association.
Complications Among Ringsters.
It had not been tiie intention of Ams
den to let the members of the associa
tion, who were the'elevator companies,
know what this 825,000 was for. At
least it was not his intention to make it
a matter of public record, so that in
charging the $25,000 to the expense
account of that association Mr. lliland
would be debiting the association with
a sum of money denominated simply as
general expenses. He objected to this
upon the ground that an investigation
would be demanded because the sum
was so large. In stating that lliland
objected to charging this sum to the
account of the Minnesota Millers' asso
ciation Amsden explained that all the
elevator companies were buying
wheat from the association, "and
they all got the same benefit
under the contract which the Minne
apolis & Northern Elevator company
derived, thus conclusively showing a
combination. Amsden was very indig
nant that lliland should have gone back
on his promise, and it worried him con
siderably to think that the Minneapolis
& Northern Elevator company had to
stand this item of expense alone. So
Amsden, the representative of the Pills
bury interests in the Northwsst, to
whom Mr. Pillsbury gives the credit ot
being a very successful busines man,
expressed the desire to get even with
lliland, and incidentally to make the
olevator companies smart. Amsden
state t that time that Mr. Pillsbury
was aware of this refusal of Uiiand, and
that the compelling of the other eleva
tors to come in upon this expense was a
matt of generalship; that Mr. Pills
Ou tgeneral Kb. Hiland,
and would undoubtedly do so. He gave
Pillsbury credit for being a great gen
eral, and said that the latter had long
had a desire to control every mill and
eieuator in the Northwest, and it was
only a matter of time when he would do
so. Lie said that, as the contract with
Wolcott then stood, it came very hard
on the Minneapolis & Northern Ele
vator company, and he wanted to make
those other companies '"put up." He
said that Pillsbury had it in particularly
for the Northwestern Elevator company
and Cargill Brothers and wanted to
Anisden's feeling against the North
western Elevator company was to a cer
tain extent explained subsequently by
the fact that in his letter to Stuart re
garding the profits of the elevator com
panies he stated that the Northwestern
Elevator company made 22 per cent
dividends. Ot all the elevators
composing the combination the North
western elevator v.as the elevator
which made the least profits in
the Northwest. While other companies
made 30, 40 and 50 per cent, this com
pany made 22 per cent dividends. The
averaging of wheat receints by the vari
ous members of the combine made it im
possible for the Northwestern Elevator
company to receive less wheat than the
Minneapolis & Northern Elevator com
pany, whose country elevators were
almost side by side with those of the
Northwestern Elevator company. Yet
the dividends were less by one-third.
This would indicate that if the Minne
apolis & Northern Eievator com
pany and the Nornhwestern Elevator
company received each 500,000 busheb
of wheat, just by way of example, and
if they each paid the same price and re
ceived the same price, for the wheat, the
difference in dividends secured by the
two companies was due to the fact that
the Northwestern! company
Gave Better Weishts
on wheat. Its elevators did not over
run as much as did those of the Minne
apolis & Northern. If there is any
credit to be given any one member of
this combination, which does not affect
the existence of a combination, it is due
to the Northwestern Elevator company
for its self-deuial in being content with
the products of the minimized robbery.
Of course the farntei is robbed by both
companies, but, inasmuch as he is
robbed less by the Northwestern Eie
vator company, it may occur to him as a
mere matter of business that whatever
minimum oi robbery exists inures to his
benefit. The farmers discovered that
they got a little better results from the
Northwestern Elevator company, and
quite a little capital was made "out of
that fact by that company, and farmers
very willingly drove out of their way,
as much as twenty-five miles in some
instances, to give their wheat to the
Northwestern Elevator company, not
because they believed that company
was strictly honest, but because it was
less dishonest than the Minneapolis &
The Conspiracy in Detail.
It is very evident from this that Ams
den was actuated by a desire, and sub
sequent develpments show that he car
ried out his scheme*, upon the plan sug
gested in this interview. ; He entered
into an agreement, which, of course, on
account of its character, was not re
duced to writing, by which his partner
in this enterprise was to buy all the
wheat tickets issued by every elevator
company in the Northwest. This part
ner objected, when the scheme was
broached to him, that he had no money
to go into a plan of this sort, and Ams
den said that so far so this was con
cerned, "we," meaning the Minneapolis
& Northern Elevator company. Pills
bury's pet corporation, have "all the
money we . want," He outlined
the plan of campaign. The part
ner in the case was to employ traveling
men to go through the Northwestern
country. These traveling men .were to
visit all stations where the Minneapolis
Northern T Elevator company had ' a
country elevator.' The traveling man
was to go to a banker, merchant, or
other business man prominent in that

town and deposit whatever sum ot
money was re.quired.and give him blank
drafts, with instructions that he could
draw on the partner in the enterprise
with the wheat tickets attached. This
representative man was to give for
wheat half a cent per bushel above the
list price, if necessary, to get the tick
ets. Amsden's part in this scheme was
to hold all the rest of the elevator com
panies down to the list price, so as to
give the representative men in the va
rious towns a chance to buy all the
tickets. Naturally enough the farmers
would sell their" tickets where they
could get the most for them. After the
two conspirators had bought up wheat
tickets representing several hundred
thousand bushels of wheat, Amsden
Find an Excuse lor Starting « Fight
with the other elevator companies. The
plan was for the prominent men in
these towns, who acted as the agents
of the conspirators, to buy tickets on
the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator
company as well as other companies, so
the people would not mistrust that the
scheme was to the advantage of the
Minneapolis & Northern company.
Amsden even went so far as to agree
to say, if any inquiries were made, that
he did not know his partner, had never
heard of him, and had uo connection
whatever with him. He said that he
and Pillsbury would disclaim any con
nection with the partner under any and
After the conspirators had succeeded
in buying several liundred thousand
tickets, Amsdcn was to raise the price
of wheat gradually two or three cents
per bushel a day, and when he got up
20 or 25 cents more than wheat was
worth or selling lor his partners trav
eling agents were to take the tickets
out of the Northwestern bank, at Min
neapolis, carry them to tho towns
where they had been bought, and get
the same men who had bought them" to
take them to the "pay-offs," or elevator
companies, themselves, and get them
cashed. Of course, they were not to
discriminate against the Minneapolis &
Northern, and* it was expected that the
tickets would be redeemed by the Min
neapolis & Northern Elevator com
pany's "pay-offs." So that if the
farmers had scattering tickets the ele
vators issuing the
Tickets Wou'd Be Forced to Re*
The theory of this part of the scheme
was that, if the Minneapolis & North
ern Elevator company redeemed its
tickets, all the other elevator companies
would have to do the same or be charac
terized as"no good"and subjected ;o se
rious injury in their reputation among
the farmers. If the scheme worked out
satisfactorily, the profits made on the
Minneapolis & Northern Elevator com
pany's elevators were to be turned back
to the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator
company, so that it would be saved
harmless and insured against loss. The
profit on the other elevator companvs'
tickets was a horse of another color.
The lump sum made by this in
trenious scheme was to be divided
between Amsden and his partner.
The effect of this was not
only to enrich Mr. Amsden, but to force
the other elevators out of existence, the
figures at which they had to redeem
their tickets being so excessive that it
was impossible ior them to find any
profit in the deal. The understanding
was that after this was done Amsden
would, by manipulation, let the price
down to the old list price. Then, if ob
jections were urged, he was to apolo
gize and smooth the matter over upon
one pietense or another, and when the
excitement had blown over he was to
begin and repeat the operation, work ing
the same scheme to his own satisfac
tion and the demoralization ot such
other elevators as had not been de
stroyed in the previous sortie.
Alter Certain Firms
Special efforts were made to exter
minate the Northwestern Elevator com
pany .uhl Cargili brothers,as has before
been shown. Amsden seemed to be
particularly antagonistic and inimical
to those two companies. Banker S. A.
Hairis played a conspicuous part in
tiiis ingenious enterprise. By the terms
of the deal he was to furnish the money
required to swing this operation. By
an arrangement with Amsden lie was to
let Amsden's partner have all the money
he wanted on the tickets bought. The
tickets were to be left with "Harris as
collateral. To A. B. Kobbins and Car
gill Brothers this statement will oast a
rlood ot light upon what was to them a
very peculiar circumstance— namely,
why so many of their wheat tickets
found their way into the Northwestern
National bank, where Cargili and A. B.
Kobbins, manager of the Northwestern
Elevator company, redeemed them.
When the price was put up, as Aras
den agreed to do. Mr. Harris was to
send the tickets to the country bankers
who acted as agents for Amsden's
partner, with instructions to sell them
and take the money that was paid at the
stations by the Minneapolis & North
ern Elevator company.
A Hitch in the Deal.
While this scheme was a most skill
ful and ingenious one. it was not prose
cuted to fruition. Auisden's partner
went ahead upon the understanding
with Amsden, and hired a couple of
traveling men, and secured authorized
agents at Park River, Grafton, Lari
more and other points, and started in to
execute the details of the conspiracy.
He bought tickets to the amount of
probably .50,000 bushels, and the scheme
was going along swimmingly, when
Amsden's partner was advised by let
ter, dated Nov. 15. ISSC, to the following
Minneapolis. Nov. 15, 18S!S.— Waut no
more tickets. At present list prices are go
ing off. Better notify buyers to hold up until
further orders (by wire). Money cannot be
obtained, and I cannot taKe the tickets as
suKfeested at present. Better stop buying
Yours. C. M. Amsden-.
If you continue buying count me out for
the present. C. M. amsuen.
An explanation of that letter is this:
The money market was very stringent,
and ajl the elevator men at that time
experienced a great deal of difficulty in
obtaining money to handle their busi
ness. That was one point that Mr.
Amsden had made— that Mr. Pillsbury
could burrow ali the money that he
wanted from the Bank of Montreal and
other large banks, while the other con
cerns could not. This put
Mr. Pillsbury on Top
of the heap. His credit was so strong
that he couki stand the draft upon the
Minneapolis & Northern Elevator com
pany and i afterward, inasmuch as
the money made on the Minne
apolis & Northern elevator tickets was
to be turned into the Minneapolis <&
Northern Elevator company, he could
redeem whatever injury his credit
might have suffered. Amsden's part
ner discontinued buying in accordance
with the request contained in that let
ter. He wired his agents to stop buy
ing, and held up for some time. His
partner wrote to ask whether Amsdeu
had any objection to his going on with
the deal personally. In reply Amsden
wrote as follows:
Minneapolis, Xov. 18, ISS6.— Dear Sir:
Have been away from office this morning,
l>iit now hasten to auswer your favor I fiud
on my desk of 17th. and would say no objec
tion until further notice. au<i I should lite
the Minneapolis & Northern tickets, and
will cash the same as fast as bought. Hastily,
etc.. C. M. amsden.
Mr. Amsden's partner was totally un
prepared, through having received
these letters, which seemed to explain
the matter satisfactorily, for what he
subsequently ascertained from a travel
in^ man appointed by the Minneapolis
Millers' association, who had knowledge
of the fact that Amsden was playing
"roots," to use a vulgar vernacular,
upon the other elevator companies com
posing the combine. As he had repre
sented the trust, this traveling agent
was more or less interested in its suc
cess as a trust, and when he discovered
that the Minneapolis & Northern Ele
vator company was
Practicing a Sclicnie
which, to his educated mind, inured to
the advantage of the Minneapolis &
Northern Elevator company more than
to the trust as a trust, be promptly noti
fied one of the members of the combine
who was not in the deal. This gentle
man was James Cargill. Mr. Cargili is
red-headed, and necessarily irascible.
Quite an interesting scene occurred be
tween Cargill and Amsden, Mr. Pills
bury's right-hand man, when Careill
called upon him to ascertaiu "what in
thunder" he meant by going outside of
the understanding existing between
members of the combine and trying to
cut the throats of the other members.
It seems that Mr. Catgut, being red
headed, has a wood pile in which he
keeps n choice collection of chips.
These chips he periodically places on
his lett shoulder when an occa
sion of this sort arises, and, with
much dramatic effect, dares the
offender to displace it. When he dis
covered Mr. Amsden's duplicity be se
lected from his wood pile the very larg
est chip he couid find, and placing it
upon its favorite resting place proceed
ed to interview Mr. Amsden. Holding
the chip with his hand for fear it would
fall off, he made a jump for the table be
fore which Mr. Amsden sat. and placed
himself squarely in the center of it. The
vituperations which Mr. Pillsburv has
been using without due regard for
their boomerang effect, are words of
compared to the sulphuric, profane and
denunciatory objurgations which, with
wonderful facility, Mr. Cargill hurled at
the devoted head of Mr. Amsden. The
mildest word in the vocabulary em
ployed by Mr. Cargill would shame a
denizen of the Chicago levee. In other
words, he damned him up hill and down
dale, and then, standing back, asked
him to proceed with the "demolition of
that large chip which he carried
lor just that purpose. Amsden did
not remove the piece of wood. He
looked at it and decided it was too
large. Cargill then informed Amsdch
that if he found the latter's partner
buying any more wheat tickets up in
that country h— l would be to pay.
Ever since that Mr. Amsden has had a
very high regard for Jim Cargill's red
head. It was Mr. Cargill's determined
attitude which pulled Mr. Amsden oft
the track. In his statement to his part
ner he did not mention this fact, which
was developed with corroborative evi
dence at a subsequent period. When
money irot easier his partner called
upon him, and Amsden stated Uiat the
deal was too big a one to swing, lie
won Id have to figure out some other
scheme for "doing" the companies, he
said. It is a fact than when Cargill
made his objections in so strenuous and
insistent a manner Amsden was fright
ened nearly to death, and to placate
Cargill had to declare the deal off. He
ordered Harris not to furnish any more
money to his partner in the conspiracy,
and directed him to shut him off get
ting money wherever he could.
This little history seems to establish
the general character of Mr. Pillsbury's
right-hand man. Amsden. Whether Mr.
Pillsbury was familiar with it would be
only interesting to know in connection
with an exposition of the extent of Mr.
Pillsbury's knowledge. But the story
is told as merely illustrative in strong
colors of the character of the men with
whom Mr. Pillsbury surrounded him
self. If it is assumed that Mr. Pillsbury
was absolutely ignorant of this deal,
the lesson it teaches is still a very
strong onerfor Mr. Pillsbury has said
that he promptly discharged men who
were guilty of acts subversive of right
ful and honorable methods as applied
to the elevator companies. In
Failing to DlMchargc Aiusden
the general principle that the acts of
the agent are the acts of the principal
has, it would seem, thorough elucina
The fanner of the Northwest will
doubtless read this story with no little
satisfaction, and will probably regret
that in this case there -,vas not the
usual exemplification of the old adatre
that "When thieves fail out, honest
men get their dues/ When he declared
that the charges made against the Min
neapolis wheat combine were the "veri
est rot," Amsden doubtless congratu
lated himself upon the fact that the
first installment of the expose did not
hit him half so hard as some other facts
would strike him if they became
known. The depth of the infamy of
this close association of bandits and
brigands has not yet ueen readied.
"To thyself be true, and it fol
lows as the night the day, thou canst
not then be false to" any man,"
seems to have no part in the practice of
this organization. This story shows
very clearly that in the case of the Min
nesota wheat rink, at least, there is not
honor among thieves. Like a double
edged sword, Mr. Amsdeu's treachery
and villainy cut both ways, for, while
he was true to his associates in the
greater conspiracy, he was untrue to
li is one associate in the lesser conspir
acy. His path seems to have been
strewn with violations of agreements
and distinguished disregard for every
understanding which he had. It ap
pears that he has not settled up with
his partner in this infamy, and it is
stated that a suit growing out of the
transactioh is not unlikely. It will
doubtless result in the baring to the
public gaze of a skeleton beside which
"a gigantic conspiracy" is as a pigmy t<#
