in Bad Order.
Washington, Feb. 28.— The admin
istration of President Harrison will go
oat leaving several branches of the gov
ernment service in bad shape. The
treasury and postoffice departments
Will need a pretty thorough renovation,
but in neither of those will there be
tnythiug half so bad as will be found in
the interior department. Theabu
the pension bureau under Gen. Raum
are well understood in all parts of the
country. but it is not so generally known
that the oflice ot the commissioner of
the general land office is in bad
repute from Minnesota to the Pa
cific coast. Neither Gen. Noble, the
dyspetic head of the department,
uor the present commissioner of the
land office, Hon. William M. stone, of
lowa, aie charged with any intentional
wrongdoing, but there will beany num
ber of charge-; Bled against the conduct
of the Oflice by ex-Land Commissioner
Thomas 11. Carter within a week after
the new administration takes hold.
There is at present a sensational case
involving a valuable mineral claim in
Montana before Gen. Noble in which,
along with other allegations. It is
charged that Mr. Carter caused the de
cision to bo hurried through in such a
manner as to deny the defeated parties

is a delegation of Duluth eentlemen on
the way to Washington with complaints
against the Duluth land officials, in
which Carter is also mixed up, and the
scalps of both Register Nichols and Ko
ceiver Fraser will be demanded at once.
While -Maj. Baldwin and the other Min
nesota Democratic congressmen decline
to give out any information regarding
the matter, charges will be presented at
once against the men who have had
charge of the work of surveying and
appraising the Red Lake reservation, and
an investigation will be certain to follow.
The men who will prefer the charges is

department to the timber thievinc that
has been going on in Northern Minne
sota for so many years and has practic
ally denu'ted the Fond (lv Lac and other
6niall reservations of their valuable tim
ber. In this connection, it is evident
that the selection of a good man for
commissioner of the land office is all im
portant, and it seems likely that the
lucky man will be taken from the

There is a splendid organization in

Washington. Feb. 28.— The Repub
lican side of the senate was subjected to
great mortification today in its defeat by
.lie minority side of the chamber on a
motion which divided the two parties
into opposite camps. It was a motion to
proceed to executive business. Mr.
Sherman made it and said that a brief
executive session was important, but
that lie could not give the reason. The
motion was defeated. When the result
was announced, and it was ascertained
that no Republican senator had voted
in fie negative, but that several of them
who had not voted were not paired, there
was some disappointment among Re
publicans who had voted. The feeling
found expression in the remark: "We
might as well give the senate- over to
the Democrats at once.'' A renewal of
the attempt a couple of hours after
wards met with a like fate. It was
beaten by a majority of two. The im
portant features of the day's session
were the passage of the naval and ag
ricultural appropriation bills and for
regulating the sale of intoxicating
liquors in the District of Columbia.

whereas it should be a twenty-five to

eighteen days by the railroads. The
object of the subsidy to the Pacific Mail
by the Transcontinental association was
to eliminate the Pacific Mail as a factor
in transportation business. Having ac

withdrawn. This closed the hearing.

Helena, Mont., Feb. 23.— With bat
two days more remaining ot the third
legislative assembly, the senatorial con
test tonight is at fever heat. The oft
repeated charee that a Democrat is en
gaged in a wholesale attempt to buy
Republican members is heard on all
sides, but no definite charges of any
; kind are made. The ballot today in the
joint assembly did not show any chance
in the standing of the various candi
dates. The probability is that tomorrow
more than one ballot will be taken. On
the first ballot Clark will make his su
preme strnggle to get a majority.
If he fails, and the probabil
ity is that he will, then it
is understood he will throw his vote to
S. T. Hauser, who has stood loyally by
him since he was made the caucus nom
inee. If Hauser is not elected, then a
Republican will be, or there will be no
election. There will be sixty-eight
votes in the joint assembly tomorrow,
with thirty-five necessary to a choice.
It Is believed Hauser can draw enough
of the Dixon votes to £ive him the elec
tion in case Clark voluntarily with
draws. It is only on the contingency of
Clark's voluntary retirement that
Hauser will allow his name to be used.

NELSON'S BILL GOES.
First of the Governor's Bene
A Hot and Earnest Battle in
the House Over the
Determined Opposition by
Farmer Members Fail 3
to Stop It.
Party Lines Drawn for the
First Time on an Impor
Party lines, so far as a vote is con
cerned, were drawn yesterday for
the first time in the house,
and tho Republican "steering" com
mittee got in its first really telling
work. The special order for 3:80 was
H. F. 889, commonly known as (lov.
Nelson's bill. On the occasion when
his excellency choked a man gently at
the poetic town of Elbow Lave, he was
lauding, it is said, ttie principles of this
measure, and the farmers cheered him
to the echo. Since then they have, so
far as heard from, changed the tune
Realizing what it may mean in the
future, and the great power conferred
on the grain and warehouse commission
to work them weal or woe as it may feel
disposed, they have sent up no resound
ing shouts for its passage. On the iloor
of the house it has been hotly opposed
by representatives of farming constitu
encies, but their opposition was dis
counted ere the debate began.
Yesterday tiie debate was long-drawu
out and vehement. Were it not for the
sake of going on record, every man who
spoke might have saved his wind. Mr.
Tnrrell, chairman of the committee ap
pointed by the Republican caucus to di
rect legislation, circulated quietly
among the members daring the talking,
and when it came to a vote so far as pos
sible there was "a mule in every stall."
And each one knew his gait, lie couM
amble along for a distance rocord or
canter to the post on signal.
In arguing for the bill, some members
talked in a fashion much resembling
the action of a tub in a choppy sea, but
none slopped over. Just so far they
careened and tilted back again, but the
noliiieal center board was r.luinb down,
and eventually the eour.-"*. 1 !ai ! \sas cojj
ered. The feature of the bill oLjkcUhl
to was the provision for a license tee of
IL. bin this was something the Repub
licans would not relinquish. Speaker
Lee made his first speech of trie session
for the bill, especially commending the
vesting of overseeing power in the
board of railway and warehouse com
As amended yesterday the opening
paragraph of the first section will read:
"All elevators and warehouses storing
and handling gram, and situate on the
right of way of any railroad at any sta
tion or siding in this state other than at
stations designated by law as terminal
points, are hereby declared to be public
elevators, and shall be ander the super
vision and subject to the inspection of
the railroad and warehouse commission
of the state of Minnesota, and shall, for
the purpose of this act be known and
designated a? public country elevators
and country warehouses."
That was the only suction in any way
discussed during the four solid hours of
talk yesterday, and evidently it was
considered the "milk in the cocoanut."
Other sections might have been left out
altogether for all the attention paid
them. And the bill is a long one at that,
containing ten good-sized sections.
After the debate Mr. Greer, who had
the bill in charge, gravely remarked to
the reporters he thought the bill would
pass. And they all looked wise in re
turn and seconded the motion so far as
the house is concerned.
LICENSING OF ELEVATORS.
Red-Hot Debute on the House
Special orders for the afternoon ses
sion of the house are coming to be a
regular thing. Yesterday, immediately
after recess, the house in committee of
the whole, with Mr. Cotton in the chair,
took up 11. F. 337, to regulate the haul
ing and shipment of grain. A full house
was in attendance in the expectation of
an interesting if not an exciting debate,
and the anticipation was not far wrong.
The discussion was opened by Mr.
Greer, who took the floor in favor of the
bill immediately on its reading. He
offered an amendment that gave rise to
a loner, tiresome debate. It was to in
sert the words, "except at terminal
points." Messrs. McGrath, Gorman,
Moore, Buck and Maguire took excep
tion to the amendment as wrong in prin
ciple and misleading.
Mr. Greer gave way to the objections
and offered an amendment to accom
plish his object by inserting the words
"other than stations designated by law
as terminal points." This, too, was op
posed, and Messrs. McGrath and Lmne
mann said their people did not ask for .
or want the bill.
Mr. Greer quoted the planks of both j
parties platforms touching the subject, I
and said both had agreed last fall to
give the farmers some measure of pro
tection from the rapaciousness of the
grain combines. He was willing to have
stricken out anything that was consid
ered wrong in the bill, but as a whole
he considered it a fair and a good bill, in
the interest of the small fanners of the
Mr. Moore said that while the third
party amounted to but little on the floor
numerically, he would read the section

good effect in securing the desired re
forms, and therefore could not sup
Mr. Gorman said that while the party
platforms all declared in favor of legis

Such Is the Opinion of Jolin L.
St. Lours, Feb. 2H.—\Vkh retard to

Hie latter today denied any knowledge
of baring said anything regarding Cor
bett to occasion the outburst. He had
not. so far as he knew, been interviewed
before since his arrival In St. Louis.
To the Associated Press representative,
continuing the conversation, he said:
"So far as Corbett is concerned, I
have no ill will towards him because he
defeated me, for that was my own fault,
and I have no complaint to offer. The
only objection I have to Corbett is that
he is not on the 'level.' He is a man
Without a country, and no one knows
today whether he is an Irishman, an
Englishman or an American. lam not
alone in the opinion 1 express of
Corbett. Every man inteiested
in ring sport will eventually
Join the ranks of the majority
who have already formed like opinions
to that 1 have just expressed; that Cor
bett will not live long, and that in the
history of the ring he does not figure as
lie might have figured had he carried
himself differently. You know, all the
world knows, thai 1 have no use for
Mitchell personally, but I venture the
assertion he will bo the popular favor
ite, the money favorite, in his coming
meeting with Corbett. Cptbett knows
this, every man who takes an interest
in ring matters knows it, and the ma
jority openly and the remainder secretly
hope to see Mitch'ell win."
"Do you think he can win?"
"Frankly I do, unless Mitchell's phys
ical condition is worse than I under
stand it to be. 1 do not tjiink so because
lam talking about Corbett; don't mis
understand me, for I will give you my
reasons for so thinking. It is admitted,
to begin with, that Oorbett is taller and
longer In the reach and that he will not
mix matters unless driven into a corner,
and that it is a difficult matter to drive
him. He did not knocK ma out at New.
Orleans; I simply fell from exhaustion
in that twenty-first round. True, ho hit
me almost at will, but of all the blows
he delivered not one was sufficiently
hard to knock out an ordinary man.
You will recollect that I have also met
Mitch:'ll,and am therefore in a positionto
gauge the punishing abilities of the two
men. Mitchell is twice as hard a hitter
as Corbett, every bit as quick, far more
cunning and tricky, and, to put it
mildly, equally as good a boxer. In ad
dition, Mitchell is 'game' to the core.
There is not a suspicion of a yellow
streak in his composition. He will, to
use a common expression, 'tight at the
drou of the hat,' and he cares very little
whether lie Is in his own crowd or some
body else's. As I have said, if his
physical position is good and he is fit, as
he undoubtedly will be, ho can get
there, and Corbett will leave the ring

Prohibitionists against the "passage" of
the bill resubmitting to a vote of the
people the prohibitory clause of the con
stitution. The amendment proposed
was of a local-option nature, permitting
cities and towns to license the sale of
liquor. The house remained in session
till 7 o'clock, when a vote was reached,
aud the bill was lost by a vote of 41 to
43, thus defeating resubmission at this
session miles s the vote be reconsidered
tomorrow and changes made to the other
side, which is doubtful.

BEHIND BEAUTIFUL BANKS.
Stillivater Has Snow Enough to
Last All Summer.
Special to the Globe.
Stim/water, Minn., Feb. 28.— The
all-absorbing topic in this city today
was the storm of the preceding day and
night, and seldom, if ever, has a more
severe blizzard been encountered here.
The streets are tilled with huge drifts,
and, although hundreds of men and
teams were employed all day. they have
made little headway in clearing up.
The storm began early Monday morn
ing and increased in violence un
til nearly J'll trains were abandoned.
The first train to arrive hero after the
storm was at 2:35 p. en. today, when a
St. Paul & Duluth passenger train, due
here the preceding day, pulled into the
union station. The first train OB the
Omaha road arrived here a few minutes
later, and brought with it about thirty
passengers from the main line train
from the East, who were snow-bound ;
all. of the preceding night at Still water
Junction. One of the passengers, in
describing their predicament, said that
the hungry passengers soon got away
with everything eatable in the dining
car, and early yesterday morning waded
through tliH snow to ti farm house a
few rods from the track, where they
received a fresh supply of food. Con
ductor Waiters left here at 16 m. yester- !
day, expecting to go through, but when
he reached the junction he received
orders to turn bade, which he did.
It took three engines to pull
the train, and in many places it
was almost impossible to get through
the heavy snow. Snow plows are at
work on all roads, but chances are that
it will be some time before trains are
running regularly. No word has been
received from the logging districts, but
Stillwater loggers are afraid that (he
storm was so severe in the pineries as
to make work impossible. Business In
this city was practically at a standstill
until ooon yesterday, the snow prevent
ing nearly every one from leaving
home. The city snow plow was used
to clean the sidewalks, and each side of
the sidewalks is lined with banks of
snow. Country roads are drifted so
badly that farmers are unable to get
out, and consequently little has been
heen heard from the country districts.
Fortunately, the storm was not accom
panied by severe cold, and, as nearly as
can be learned, there was no suffering
in or near Stiliwater.*
