__A. Hot Contest Is Going on at
Fargo Over the Postal
Special to the Globe.
Nouthfield, Minn., Feb. 20. -The
Sabbath quiet of this little city was
rudely disturbed by a report of a shot
gun and the discovery that Eugene
Blood, one of the best known young
men of Northfield, had killed himself.
There is a woman in the case, and the
suicide was the result of the fickleness
of woman's love. Young Blood had been
going with a young lady living about
six miles from the city, and the affair
seemed to progress favorably till the
first of last week, when the two had
a quarrel. Blood went out there
today, presumably to make up
with the girl, but evidently did
not succeed. He went at once to his
room on returning, and was writing
when his father entered. In response
to a question as to what he was writing,
Blood made no reply, and his father
left the room. Immediately on shutting
the door he heard a shot, and, rushing
in, saw his son prostrate on the floor,
the blood flowing from just above the
heart, and the gun which caused the
wound lying on the floor. Blood had
made his will just before, and the whole
affair showed a deliberate suicide. His
parents are nearly crazy, aud there is
general sorrow, as Blood was a very
popular young man. The coroner has
been summoned from Faribault.
CRITICAL AT HELENA.
A Republican May Be Chosen
Special to the Globe.
Helena, -Mont., Feb. 26.— There is
good authority for stating that the Mon
tana senatorial deadlock will end to
morrow or Tuesday. The Dixon men
have hopelessly broken with the Clark
contingent because the latter would not
listen to overtures for the selection of
an outsider, and ii is said that three at
leastof the Dixon men will on Monday
vote for Mantle. Republican. One of
the Populists, also, is said to he waver
ing in the direction of Mantle. With
these four and the full Republican vote
Mantle will have one more vote than
enough to elect. Two Republicans, ]
however, have so far refused to vote for !
Mantle, and. if they insist on voting for
other Republicans, he will still be one
short of a majority. Carter is here, and
the Mantle men feat he is trying to
draw oil their forces.

Two Companies Fighting Each
Other to the Death.
Special to the Globe.
Fargo, N. D., Feb. 26.— A war of ex
termination is on between the local
electric light plants. For several years
the Fargo Gas and Electric company
has furnished light to this city and
Moorhead at what seemed abnormal
prices. Recently a new company ap
plied to the city council for a" charter,
ami it was thought it was in a fair way
to secure a contract to light the city.
The new company cut the old com
pany'^ prices exactly in twain, making
a schedule with prices just half as high
as formerly. Now the old company has
cut prices below tiie new company's
schedule, and the outlook is that before
the war ends Fargo will be lighted free
of charge. W. T. Ball, who is agent for
the new corporation, says a plant will be
put in and prices further lowered.

The Sum of $50,000 Is Needed for
New York, Feb. 26.— The evangeliza
tion of France was the theme discussed
at a meeting held this afternoon in tiie
Fifth Avenue Presbyterian cliurch.
With Dr. Hall in the pulpit were F.
Necker, vice president of the Evan
gelical Society of Geneva, and Rev.
E. J. Dupuy, pastor of the Reformed
Church of Paris, The sum of §50.000 is
needed by the four Evangelical socie
ties of Europe now carrying on evan
gelical work among the French Cath
olics, and this sum the societies hope to
raise among the Protestants in America.
In opening, Dr. Ball said that a consid
erable sum of money had already been
subscribed and much more was prom
"America owes much to France,"
said Dr. Hail, "for from the sturdy
Huguenots, who were driven from their
own home and settled in America, came
some of the best men today among us."
Mr. Necker said he had come to this
country with others to secure money
for "the work of evangelizing France.
There is, and always has been, he said,
great opposition to the work of Prot
estants in France, but that, in spite of
difficulties, much good work was being
done, and that one of the objects of his
coining here was to open an . office in
New i'ork. in fact, to organize an evan
gelical society, which shall be open
daily for the receipt of contributions
for the work.
Rev. E. J. Dupuy followed Mr. Neck

has been done and is being done in
France. lie said that the work was
begun in 1831 and Iras been steadily
going on ever since, though at times it

Some Clamor Against the Read
Philadelphia, Feb. 26.— Nothing
-has transpired in the affairs of the Read
ing railroad to disturb the torpor into
which it has fallen save the attacks
upon the appointment of President Mc-
Leod as a receiver, Speaking of these
attacks and the criticisms upon Presi
dent McLeod, an official of the company
"The appointment was made by Judge
Dallas, of the United States circuit
court, who was master in the previous
receivership, and who, outside of the
officials of the company and its counsel,
is prooably more conversant with the
condition of the road and its financial
complications than any man in Philadel
phia. Judge Dallas is the last man in
the world who would be influenced by
any unworthy consideration ill appoint
ing the receivers, and the fact that ho
named President McLeod, with Messrs.
Paxsou and Wilbur, showed that lie
looked upon Mr. McLeod as the fittest
man for the place. So you may be sure
that Mr. McLeod will retain his posi
tion, notwithstanding the clamor."
BREWERS TO DESERT.
They Will Leave the American
Federation of Labor.
St. Loins, Mo., Feb. 20.— Brew
ery Workers' National union is about to
leave the American Federation of
Labor. It is composed of seventy-five
local unions and has about 11,000 mem
bers. The headquarters are in this city,
and the national secretary is Ernest
Kurzcnknobe. The proposed secession
from the federation originated about six
months ago in Cleveland, and has beeu
conducted with secrecy. It is in line,
so Knights of Labor people say, with
the general growth of sentiment in
favor of the Knights. A vote has been
taken in the local unions composing the
brewers' association throughout the
United States on the matter, and the
majority voted in favor of seceding from
the federation and affiliating with the
Knights of Labor. The question is ex

Omaha. Feb. 20.— M. V. Gannon,
president of the Irish National league,
emphatically denies that he authorized
the address said to have been issued last
night by officers of tho league, directed
against the Gladsone home rule bill.
Mr. Gannon says he received a telegram
from the treasurer, Lyman, asking if he
would join in such an address, and had
telegraphed in reply:
"No; not against the bill itself; if
against certain portions of the bill, yes.
The bill itself is right in principle, but
some of its provisions should be modi
fied in committee."^
Mr. Gannon asserts that it would be
the greatest presumption for the league
to denounce a bill which both factious
in Ireland have agreed to support.

Brussels, Feb. 20.— The referendum
instituted by the Liberal societies to
learn the sentiment of the people ou
the suffrage question, was taken today
throughout the kingdom, ln this city
there were forty-nine polling stations.
As the referendum was entirely unof
ficial, most of the stations were at cafes,
cigar stores and newspaper offices. All
the outlying villages had polling sta

might be obtained in the district. De
spite the rain the streets were thronged

prevailed, especially in the quar

although there was no disorder.
In Brussels some 25,000 votes were cast.
A large majority favored M. Jansen's

The Socialists voted for it to a man.

NATIONAL BANK ACT.
New York's Superintendent MakeS
a Suggestion in Regard
He Doesn't, Look Favorably on
the Proposed 10 Per Cent
New .York, Feb. 26.— The annual re
port of Hon. Charles M. Preston, super
intendent of. banks of the state of New
York, on discount banks, whicii is to be.
submitted to the legislature Tuesday,
devotes considerable space to a discus- '
sion of the state bank tax question.
Mr. Preston says that the proposed re
peal by congress of the 10 per cent la.j,
on state bank circulation would find,
twenty-eight of the forty-four states of
•the Union not fully prepared, and six
teen of these very imperfectly equipped
to avail themselves 'of the relief.
Possibly the adoption by congress of a
system of a "safety fund" .similar to
that formerly operating in this state,
the assurance of redemption for the
notes of insolvent oanks might be made
to rest upon a small percentage of the
.aggregate capital of. all the national
banks, so that as the capital of the na
tional banks increases from time lo time
the "safety fund" will increase in like
proportion. If congress shall neglect
the demand of the Democratic platform
and refuse the repeal of tho 10 per cent
tax on state bank-note issues, it then be
comes almost immediately important to
determine what shall succeed the na
tional bank note as now provided for.
if bank notes are to be a
part of the circulating medium
of the United States hereafter.
Mr. Preston concludes as follows:
"Suppose congress should amend the
national banking act so us to leave the
supervision and examination of the na
tional banks to their respective states
aud continue the bureau of the comp
troller of the currency simply for the
purpose of issuing circulating notes to
any bank upon its depositing with the
comptroller of the bonds of the United
States or of any stite of the -Union
which has not defaulted in pie payment
of its obligations within ten years, or
the bonds of- any city of any state of
the United States (which shall not have
defaulted as aforesaid) having 50,000
inhabitants or over and which has
never defaulted in the payment of
any of its obligations, and whose bonded
indebtedness does not exceed 7 per cent
of its assessed valuation, and providing
that notes should be issued to the par
value of theae bonds, would our bank
ing system for practical purposes be
less secure, and would it not be more
elastic and much better suited to the
needs of the people than at the present
time?" " _
GERMAN MILITARY BANDS. j
They Will Be a Feature at the

New York. Feb. 26.— Henry Yil lard

"One of the chief attractions." said he,

These bands are sent to this country by.

"You have made a great mistake in

me witness that I never advised
any of you to vote for a

Certainly they will not claim that they

conscience is clear, and you know that
I am good-natured. Everybody with
whom I have associated this winter,

"You, Mr. Inks, know that if 1 had had
a desire to influence members, I should
have commenced on yen. When I
talked with you the week before the
first ballot was taken, you had not
formally made up your mind to support

me that three Republicans, naming
them, were liable to vote for a Dem
ocrat, and asking me to telegraph them
whom to support. I telegraphed,
begging them not to vote for a Dem

come from me with contrary advice is a
forgery. It would bo very gratifying
to me if you would send me the dis
patch,or copy thereof, which.has led you

Congress Will Do a Lot of Hasty
Work This Week.
Washingto n, Feb. 26.— The closing
week of the Fifty-second congress will
be characterized by a rush of legislation
that has seldom been equaled. As there
is not time for all the many public and
private measures near completion to
pass, they must antagonize each other,
and opposed to them ail in both houses
will stand the appropriation committees
urging immediate action upon the great
measures in their charge. The present
condition of these bills is follows: The
fortifications bill is a law; the army bill
is before the president for signature;
.the military academy and the
District of Columbia bills are
in conference; the snnday civil,
the diplomatic and consular and the
legislative bills have passed both
houses, but have not reached the con
ference stage, the pension bill has
passed the house and been reported to
the senate, and the naval, agricultural,
postoffice and deficiency bills are await
ing action at the hands of the senate
committee on appropriations, in the
senate the naval bill will probably come
up Monday. The agricultural and post
office bills are expected to be reported
by Tuesday, and ihe deficiency bill
about the middle of the week. They
will be taken up for action as fast as
reported. Meantime, consideration of ]
these bills and of other pending meas
ures will be suspended from time to
time to allow the disposition of confer
ence reports' ln this coudition of affairs,
matters of general legislation cau
hardly receive much attention, but, if
opportunity offers, Senator Teller will
endeavor to call up his revised Mc-

other effort j secure consideration for
his omnibus^tatehoud bill, and Senator
= Blackburn pill probably strive to se
cure the parage of the New York and
New- Jersey bridge bill as it came from
There seems to be a set purpose to
prevent any further executive sessions
of the senate if possible. This will
serve a three-fold purpose— defeat ac
tion on th* nomination of Judge
.Hanclistt; prevent reconsideration of
the vote by which the nomination of
I Congressman Findlay, of Mai viand, as
Chilian arbitrator was rejected, and
shelve the Hawaiian treaty of annexa
tion for this session.
In the house advantage will be taken
of the rule permitting action during the
last six days of a session, under suspen
sion of the rules, to rush forward busi
ness of an urgent nature. A number ot
measures of comparatively little inter
est may be thus passed, but the indica
tions are that it will be necessary to
give most of the time to the appropria
tion bills. . Unless an amicable under
standing can be privately reached with
reference to the course to be taken with
the Sherman bond amendment to the
sundry civil bill, it is probable that it
will be moved, under suspension of the
rules, to send all the amendments to.
Conference with formal non-concurrence ;

thirds vole can be secured for this mo
tion. By the' adoplioupf this course the
long delay over the numerous amend
.merits of "no special interests in tir m
. selves : would be avoided, leaving oily
tie bond amendment to be fought out
ii the house, lt is expected by the
leaders of the house that the French
spoliation claims will again be put on
the deficiency appropriation bill by the
8 .mate, and perhaps the Cherokee strip
bill on the Indian bill, but with these
exceptions it is not anticipated that any
serious trouble will occur in conference
sufficient to endanger the passage of the
appropriation bills and compel an extra
session of congress.
The Hawaiian Treaty Has Small
Chance of Going Through.
Washington, Feb. 25.— Mr. Paul
Neuman, the envoy of Queen Liliuo
kalani to Washington, today expressed
his conviction that the treaty of annex
ation made with the commissioners of
the provisional government of Hawaii
was practically defeated. He said that
the senate will be asked this week to
appoint a commission to visit the
islands and investigate the condition of
affairs there. If this was done, lie said,
the senate and the country would learn
the conditions under which the people
or Hawaii would almost, unanimously
support a movement for the annexation
of the islands, if it siiould then be deter
mined that that was the thing for
both countries. Ue asserted that Hie
queen had not been deposed, but had
simply retired to her private residence
in order to avoid a conflict with United

queen had not been deposed/but had
simply retired to her private residence
in order to avoid a conflict with the
United Stales troops. He asserted that
Minister Stevens had been compelled to
raise the United States flag over the
government buildings in Honolulu to
protect the provisional government from
its own partisans. Having established
the protectorate, however, Mr. Neuman
said that Minister Stevens should have
been amply supported by this govern
ment. Personally, he hoped the pro
tectorate would be maintained until the
sure course of the islands were settled.
Mr. Neuman criticised the action of
Mr. Davies in starting to the United
States with the Princess Kaiulani, and
also his reported proposition to Minister
Lincoln in London to accept a United
States protectorate over the islands
with the princess on the throne, with a
regency for three years. "Why for
three years?" he asked. "The princess
will be of age next year, and, if she
ever is qualified to reign, it will be
"Mr. Davis acted, I believe, without
authority. . The friends of the princess
,in Honolulu opposed the project of
bringing her to this country, but she
seems to have been staited off before
letters from the Islands could reach her.
1 do not believe the officials of the Unit
ed States will be inclined to receive
with a kindly spirit the intermeddling
of this Liverpool merchant." •
UNCLE SAM'S BREAD
Is Bought in Great Quantities by
Washington Feb. 26.— United
States is the chief source of supply from
which Germany draws the deficit in her
domestic breadstuffs. Such is the in
format on contained in a report to the
state department by Frank H. Mason,
consul at Frankfort, of the statistics of
grain importation into Germany for the
year 1802. They show au enormously
increased volume of both wheat and rye
imported from the United States. From
fourth place in 1890 the United States
rose to first place in 1892, the amount of
wheat purchased from the United
States rising from 192,02.5 bushels in
1800 to 23.065,705 bushels last year. The
importations from the United States in
189L2 were neariv half of the whole
amount imported — 46,025,565 bushels.
The importations of rye from the United
States increased from 795,883 bushels in
1890 to 4,982,325 bushels in 1893. Rus
sia's contribution of that cereal to Ger
many, owing to failure of crops, de
creased from 27,000,000 busheli in 1890 to
4.500.000 bushels in 1802. This is inter
esting in that it fixes the capacity of
British India and Australian sources of
supply. Although Germany has regu
lar steamship connection under her own
flag and a growing export of manufact
ured goods with both India and Aus
tralia, they play a comparatively insig
nificant role" in furnishing the foreign
wheat and that required by this coun

FACTORY IN FLAME&
A Costly Sunday Morning
Blaza in the Wholesal9
Tha Factory of the Minnesota
Shoe Company Badly
Four Firemen Seriously Hurt
by an Outburst of
Total Loss Not Far From
$100,000, Fully Covered
One of the hottest fires ever seen in
the city of St. Paul occurred yesterday
morning, when the greater number of
the people were in church. The four
story building occupied by the Min
nesota Shoe company and William
Roger & Co. was complctly gutted, and
a loss of $100,000 was the result.
Four men were injured during the
fire. Lieut. Edward Hem, of Engine
Company No. 3; Lieut. Felix J. O'Neill,
of Engine Company No. 2; Pipeman
Gilbert Gillam, of No. 3, and Truck
man John W. Cowan, of No. 2 Hook
and Ladder, were severely hurt. It is
not thought that any of them will die
from the injuries which they received,
but they will be laid up for some time.
Lieut. O'Neill has a sprained ankle,
and is internally injured; Lieut. Hem
has a sprained ankle and other injuries,
while Gillam has a broken wrist and is
severely burned. Cowan is injured
about the spine.
The fire broke out at about 9 o'clock
a.m. It started on the second floor of
the building iv the cutting department
of the Minnesota Shoe company's store.
It is supposed that the fire was caused
by matches being gnawed by tho rats in
the store. Mr. Drake, the foreman in
the Roger & Co. establishment, was the
one who made the discovery of the fire.
Reentered the building at about 10:15
o'clock in the morning,and as he opened
the door the draught from the lire
would not permit him to close it again.
The building is next to the one occu
pied by Engine Company No. 12, and he
ran to the door of the engiuo house for
the purpose of giving, the alarm. The
engine was at, once run out of doors,
and an alarm was turned in to the other
houses. It was 4 o'clock in the after
noon before they could return to their
houses, Another hour was consumed in
the pumping out of the basement, and
then the men were relieved from duty.
The lire started on the second floor
and then worked up to the top floor of
the building. The material in the place
acted as a good communicator, and the
fire rapidly spread. The heavy ma
chinery fell through the floors, and was
the principal cause ot damage in -the
factory of Rodger & Co. The wails are
still standing, but all of the material in
the place was destroyed by the lire.
The manner in which the firemen
were injured was peculiar. They were
on the fire escape in the front of the
building. The flames burst through the
windows and drove them from their po
sitions. Lieut. Hem fell from the first
floor and struck the sidewalk in a pros
trate condition. The others fell to the
sidewalk in the same manner. Gillam
was severely burned about the head and
face. He placed ins baud up to his face,
and the marks of his fingers remain.
He saved his eyes in this manner.
The building which was the scene of
the fire is the newest portion of the
plant of the shoe company. It faces on
Rosabel street and is 50 feet wide, lt
extends back a distance of 150 feet to
the store ot Kuhles & Stock, cigar man
ufacturers. The manufactory of the
last-named firm was not touched by the
It is understood that the building was
insured in full, so that the loss will be
entirely covered in this manner. The
larger factory of the shoe company,
next door, v was not damaged by the fire.
Repairs will be made at once, and the
work of the shoe company will not be
retarded to any considerable extent.

UNCLE JERRY ON HOGS.
The Secretary of the Soil Advises
American Farmers to liaise
He Gives Some of the Reasons for
the Faith That Is in
Washington, Feb. 20. — Secretary
Rusk, of the department of agriculture,
says that farmers in all parts of the
country are Inquiring as to the probable
profit of feeding corn to hogs at present
prices. He desires to state that the
prospect of large returns from judicious
hog feeding has seldom been as
bright as now. In average years
it takes about nine pounds of hogs,
live weight, to bring the price
of a bushel of corn. This year
five poinds of hogs bring as much as a
bushel of corn. If ten pounds of pork
are made from a bushel of corn, which
may be taken as a fair return, then the
present prices of hog* would make corn
bring about 85 cents a bushel if fed to
these animals, which Ts about twice as
much as it is now quoted at on the Chi
cago market. Instead of sending pigs
and half-fat hogs to market, as thou
sands have done, only to find that such
animals were unlit for packing and
would bring but a comparatively small
piice, these animals should be kept on
trie farm and fattened on the com
which is now so cheap in comparison
with present prices of pork. The.high
price of bogs is largely due totfie meat in
spection carried oh by the department of
agriculture, which opened the markets of
Europe and enabled shippers to send the
surplus hdjUtfoducts outof the country.
Following tnis came a shortage in the,
hot; crop. The number of hogs packed
this winter is not only less than it lias
been previously, but the hogs were
lighter in weight, so that there has b.-cn

Senator Morgan Asserts That
Uncle Sam Isn't Aggressive
Great Opportunities of the Pasf
and Some of Those Con
Nkw York, Feb. 36.— honor ot
Senator Morgan, who sailed on the New
York yesterday, a committee of well
known merchants and others gathered
upon the deck of the American liner td
wish the senator Godspeed. Replying
to an address made by the chairman of
the committee, Mr. Morgan spoke in
part as follows:
S'Tt is singular that at this time there
are grouped together three immense
propositions relating to that great body
of water— the Behring sea arbitration,
which may also be said to involve - the
whole North Pacific; tne Nicaragua
canal, in which I had the happiness to
be identified, because I knew a good
thing when 1 saw it, and then, coming
upon us suddenly, tho Hawaiian prop
"The three together must convince
all thinking men that there never was a
moment in the history of this govern
ment, saving the period of our civil
war, when so much wisdom, courage,
manhood and intrepidity, foresight and
determined American pluck were neces
sary as just now.
•'We have come to a pivotal point in
American destiny— a moment when we
must go back or forward. We cannot
tak« middle ground.
"In thinking of the Pacific ocean and
our duty in connection with it, I don't
want to see repeated what was perpe
trated upon us at tho time when we ac
quired our independence. Though
France was at our back, we did no!
have the foresight to acquire all that
belonged to us. We did not take New
foundland, the Bahamas, Bermuda, tho
Windward islands, Jamaica and all tuo
territory known to Yucatan.
"Why should a people of .",5,000.000
hold against a people of 05,000,000 all
these islands on which they have spent
more than r?4 for every inch of ground?
Well, we cannot help it; they have the
islands, and they never give up anything
that is good. lam not criticising them.
1 admire them. I wish Americans to bo
as much like them as possible— only
"Great Britain has alrendy planted
herself in Australia and New Zealand,
and is now approaching the Sandwich
Islands— that Gibraltar of the Pacific.
Only recently she raised her tine on ova
of these islands, and atthe present time
the Hawaiian government and our own
aie protesting against that occupation.
"Let me ask you, when they get there
and complete the chain, including Van
couver. Victoria, Hawaii, Hong Kong,
New Zealand and Australia, will we
not then see repeated in the Pacific that
miserable, despicable policy which wan
perpetrated in the Atlantic' when therrt
was nothing left but for us to put the
eastern islands into the bill of sale— tha
"Witii these three great questions con
fronting us — the Nicaragua!] canal,
Behring sea arbitration and Hawaii, the
last ready to drop into our laps like a
ripe pear— we have need of that spirit
of manhood and energy and endurance
which was so superbly developed when
we were lighting one another, with a
million men in the held. Then we shall
see the outcome of the power and spirit
of a great people on a great occasion,
Let us move to the front."
