THE GERMAN ELECTION.
The cable news indicates that the
German election is resulting adversely
to the hopes of the kaiser. There are
so many details and influences in Ger
man politics which are not understood
here that it is difficult to discuss the
subject at this distance; but one thing
is certain— the spirit of democracy has
trrown to be a menace to the throne.
The national debt is enormous.the taxes
nigh, and the people are not in a mood
to favor anything which can make the
public exDenses greater.
The people are .awakening to a reali
zation of their own strength. Many
yean the wily Bismarck carried elec
tions by deceiving them. It has recently
come to light that he precipitated the
Franco-Prussian war by false telegrams;
that he used the purported telegrams to
lire up the patriotic spirit of the people.
The great premier was never at a loss
tor a scheme to keep them alive with
pride in their country. liis mantle fell
upon one who was not so gifted, and the
people have learned of all the intrigues
which served to keep them In sympathy
with the throne. Had they learned of
these things years ago, it i 3 reasonable
to believe that the democratic tendency
would by this time be powerful enough
to overwhelm the monarch.
The people are aware now that their
heavy burden of taxation is due to the
impositions which kept them in the be
lief that the safety of Germany de
pended upon maintaining an immense
army. Yet the throne is powerful. A
large portion of the German people are
still in doubt as to the propriety of re
fusing the demands of the kaiser; and
the kaiser has made the most ot this
feeling by using every means to intimi
date the electors. If he is defeated
now, the meaning will be so trreat that
he may precipitate a revolution by at
tempting to usurp autocratic power, it
is already rumored that, in case of de
feat, he will declare his army bill a law
and seek to enforce it.
There is still a chance for the success
of the throne in the elections. In ab&ut
125 districts second ballots must be
taken. Without the kaiser's interfer
ence, it is asserted, almost every one of
these would elect men who are opposed
to the army bill as prepared by Caphivi ;
but the emperoi will interfere, and pro
poses to exert every possible means to
carry every district. The belief is ex
pressed that he may bring to bear influ
ences which will wiu for him. But if
he succeeds, he will not succeed in over
throwing the democratic spirit, nor in
checking its growth.
It seems very clear that Germany will
eventually become a republic, unless the
throne concedes to the people very much
more power than they now enjoy.
AN UNLAWFUL PRACTICE.
It is greatly to be desired that the
burglars who are engasred in a series of
raids upon the hothouse of a florist in
the northwestern part of the city shall
be apprehended, and the efforts of the
Rondo" police division to capture them
are worthy; but Officer Riley was not
justified in shooting and wounding
John Delokoki. The man was not
seriously hurt, and the matter would
not be worth editorial comment were it
not for the fact that the St. Paul police
force is given to shooting in cases of
this kind, and evidently believes that
the law warrants the course.
An officer has no warrant from the
law to shoot a fleeing person who has
committed only a misdemeanor; he is
justified only in shooting to effect the
arrest or prevent the escape of one
whom he has caught in the act of com
mitting a serious felony or for whose ar
rest he has a warrant charging such a
It apppars that I>klokoki had not
entered the greenhouse when the officer
arrested him, and that the arrest was
made upon suspicion. The fact that
the prisoner broke away from the officer
and ran is not a strong circumstance to
prove guilt; innocent men, particularly
of the Ignorant classes, become so much
alagued by arrest that they will im
prove any opportunity to escape. It is
stated that since the arrest things
stolen from the greenhouse have been
lound in the house of Dklokoki; but
this does not alter the case. The officer
shot at the man with no evidence upon
which he could have procured his con
viction. Suppose the officer had killed
him, and it had turned out that he was
innocent, is it not clear that the deed
would be at least manslaughter? It cer
tainly would, if not murder in the sec
It is a deal more important that the
police force shall be required to know
and observe their duties under the law
of arrest than to wear white gloves,
coats buttoned and boots blacked.
There is ample justification in the
opinion handed down by Judge Woods
in the Sunday-closing case for the
recent remarks of the Globe on the
necessity of democratizing the judici
ary; that is, of putting men on the
benches of the federal courts and the
state courts of last resort whose con
cept of the purpose and scope of
government is democratic, and not
federalists or paternalistic. It is im
possible that a man who believes that a
government is created for the purpose
of regulating any and all of the affairs
of men to which it may at any time see
fit to address its power, will not, when
the question comes up involving a dis
pute as to the scope of the jurisdiction
of the state or nation, lean uncon
sciously to the side of the state or
nation. There have been notable i n
stances, markedly the decisions of the
federal supreme court in the cases in
volviug the reconstruction acts of con
gress, where justices, nominally Repub
lican, have decided against the aggres
sions of governmental power on the
rights of the state or the citizen; but
this was because, in the main, these
judges had a democratic concept of
Judge Wood is of the opinion that
it mattered nothing that congress had
conditioned its gift of the souvenir coins
on the closing of the fair; it had the
power to close it without it, and purely
in the exercise of its legitimate powers.
How this opiuion of this judge is taken
is made plain by the comments of the
Chicago Tribune, which finds in it com
pensation for its disappointment in the
decision closing the fair, which it had
advocated strenuously. It sees in it the
assertion of what it says it has always
contended for, the absolute supremacy
of congress over the states iv anything
to which it might see fit to apply its
powers. "Whenever the national gov
ernment is concerned in any affair all
others must take back seats," says the
Tribune. 'Judge Wood does not be
lieve that it possesses only strictly de
fined aud limited powers."
There were grave questions as to the
fitness of the appointment of Judge
Wood raised on his appointment, grow
ing out of his reversal of himself in his
instructions to the federal jury in the
celebrated "blocks-of- five" case; and
his expressed views of the absolute su
premacy of congress over the states

[4 YOU'RE DISINGENUOUS,
The Tribune makes the editorial of
'the. Globe on the development of the
iron and steel industries of the group of
Northwestern states the subject of an 1
! editorial in which it assumes that the
: Globe is less opposed to a protective.;
tariff because it examined the statistics
going to prove its benefit to its favorite
industry. It intimates that the oppo- '
sition of the Globe to protection is
reserved for campaigns, and be
tween them it can speak of its effects
, calmly and approvingly. It makes such
selections from the remarks of the
Globe as tend to bear out its intention,
it omits quoting what we said about the
demonstration the figures made of the
benefit to this especial industry ot
the policy of taxing all the people to
make it profitable.
■ If there is anything of sincerity in
the claim of the protectionists that the
chief object of their poiicy is to conserve
the dignity of the American laborer by
giving him larger wages in return for
his labor, then surely the wages in the
steel and iron industries should show
an increase proportional to the develop
ment of the industry; but we have the
testimony of no less a personage than
'was John Jarrett that the increase in
the waires of the iron and steel workers
was not due to the voluntary action of
the employers,but to the strength of the
labor organizations. The workmen had
to combine and use their united strength
to get from their employers a part ot
-the benefit that was to be wholly theirs.
But wages have not increased: in the
proper ratio. The figures show that the
average product per man has increased
from 45 tons in 1870 to 123 in 1890, nearly
200 per cent, while his wages have in
creased, putting those of 1870 on a gold
valuation, but 22 percent. Relatively,
then, wages have decreased, while sub
jectively there has been a small ad
vance. The larger share by far of the
grain in productivity went to the em
Having thus picked out the sentences
on which to build its argument, and
omitted those which destroy it, it con
cludes with this question, which it evi
dently conceives to be unanswerable:
"Why. indeed should congress meet in
special session to repeal an economic
act under the operation of which wages
rise, profits to capital fall, and the cost
of manufactured necessities steadily
and markedly fall?".
Our contemporary "takes a fragment
for the whole;" it measures the efficacy
of the act by its effect on one industry;
it complacently ignores its operation
and its inefficiency on others. The same
act that protects the iron worker "pro
tects" the farmer. It increased the tax
on wheat from 20 to 25 cents a bushel;
on flax seed from 20 to 30 cents a bushel;
on beef and pork from Ito 2 cents a
pound; on butter from 4 to 6 cents a
pound, and so on through all the prod
ucts of the soil. "Under its operation"
wheat sells in Minneapolis at GO' cents, a
price equaled only by the old free trade
times, and the general average of farm
products have shrunken in values. Will
it claim for the McKinley act the same
effect of falling profits to the capital in
vested in farming and the decrease of
cost of the "manufactured necessities"
of the farm that.it claims. for it in the
manufactures of iron and steel? : .
i Mr. Preston', who buys the monthly
quota of silver bullion for the treasury
under the provisions of our half-Hedged,
limping socialistic -Sherman act, has
returned to the practice of making
counter offers for silver in vogue under
Manning, and which Windom discon
tinued on the representations of th«

The triumph of the party that is
pledged to overthrow the industries of
the nation has simply produced its in
evitable effect. The pretense that the
Sherman law is accountable for existing
conditions will not deceive the people
nor relieve the Democratic party of re
sponsibility for the destruction which it
has already wrought.— New York Press.
There is no doubt that Mr. Cleveland
will have a good working majority in
the new congress in favor of the repeal,
because the larger number of the Re
publican members will vote for it, a3
they should; for no man can afford, on
mere partisan grounds, to allow his vote
to work injury to the business interests
of the country.— Toledo Blade.
It is useless to cry over spilt milk.
The way out .of our difficulty is to re
trace our steps. The prospect grows
steadily brighter for a suspension of
silver purchases when congress shall
have assembled; and the expectation of
this result has already had its effect iv
improving the - business situation.—
That the majority of the members of
the senate and house of representatives
is in favor of remedial legislation, hav
ing for its purpose the rehabilitation of
the white metal, we cannot for a
moment doubt. Gold-bug agents have
polled both bodies, and the result is
not discouraging to the advocates of
bimetallism.— Denver Sun.
"With every other Democrat who has
the least regard for party pledges the
president is aware that the Democracy
is committed to repeal of the Sherman
silver purchase act.. Equally distinct is
its obligation to replace that law with :
legislation calculated to remedy the ills
that "afflict the " nation.— Brooklyn
;', If the Sherman law is deficient it is
because it is operated with gold as the.
standard of value, and because silver is
treated as a mere commodity. Nothing :

whelming odds. Remonetize sHyer and
let the Sherman law go. ; Then there
would be no trouble.— Detroit Times.

MEN AND SAYINGS.
"One of the strangest things that ever
came under my notice happened a few years
ago in Tasmania/ remarked Capt. Kelly, an
ex-British army surgeon, at the Ryan yester
day. "It seems impossible and improbable,
but I am assured that the statement of facts,
as given by the man principally concerned,
"A native, While traveling througu a desert
portion of the country, became lost in the
wiWerhess. His food was soon disposed of,
and there was no chance of Ob'taiuing any
thing to eat in tue manner of game, or even
roots or herbs. He went for four days with
out food, and ho had almost fainted from,
hunger. He succeeded in getting some water
to drink in a brackish pool, but there was
absolutely no vegetation there. Finally,'
in a fit of desperation and insan-'
ity, for a mau could not do such,
a thing while in his proper senses,
he took his sharp dagger and commenced,
cutting strips of flesh from his left hand. He
stripped three of the fingers, and then, after
building a fire, broiled the flesh on the coals
and ate it. This gave him new strength, aud
he continued on his way; but the following
afternoon he felt the effects of huuger to
such an extent that he repeated the experi
ment of tne day before.
"When he arrived at his village he hid
eaten the flesh from bis arm to the elbow,
and he stated that he had taken five meals
trom his own arm. He was in a half-crazed
condition, bvt rapidly recovered from the
effects of the terrible exposure and awful
torture which he had been subject to. He
philosophically explained that he considered
it better to lose an arm than to starve in the
desert and leave his vthole body there. It
does not seem possible tout a man could have
the nerve to do such a thing."
Said a prominent St. Paulite yesterday:
"Our good friends up the river, desirous of
deriving the advantages accruiug frrtrn the
go-ahead spirit which pervades St. Paul, are
endeavoring to persuade themselves that the
western tier of sections of this city b?lone:
to Heunepin county, and consequently to
Minneapolis. Such, at least, is the gist of a
wordy article in the Globk recently. It is
claimed that the act of 185ti establishing the
boundary lines of Henuepin county includes
territory lying one mile east of, and all along
the hitherto established county line, which
territory everybody fondly believed to be in
Kamsey county until the legal acumen of
Minneapolis discovered otherwise. If this
claim has established anything in its exposi
tion and argument, it is tue fact that
the annexation act of '56 is void for
uncertainty of description of the lima
sought to be affected, which leaves the lines
of Karnsev county as existing before its pas
sage. This would place East Minneapolis in
Ramsey county, with the state university,
expositioub uilding, Pillsbury hall, and other
noted structures lying iv the First, Second
and Ninth wards of our sister city. Though
not intended iv this light, the gift of Min
neapolis to the city of St. Paul should be
accepted with thanks. It mny occur to our
neighbor that there is such a thing as prov
ing too much, when it comes to realize the
position it ha? assumed. 1 '!

Washington, June 10. — Congress
man Baldwin may not be in high favor
around the office of the commissioner of

at the White house. This was shotffc
today by the removal of Monroe Nichols,
as register of the Duluth land office, and
the appointment of A. J. Taylor, Maj.
Baldwin's candidate. For some time
the Duluth member has devoted a good
part of his spare time to pushing this
ease, and his victory is gratifying be
cause of the strong influences pulling
for the retention of Mr. Nichols. Taylor
was stronely indorsed by nearly all of
the Democratic leaders of Duluth, and
.recommended for appointment 6y Maj.
Baldwin on this account. There were
several other good men- after the
place, but, as Taylor had the back
ing of the great majority, the major
declared that he could recommend no
one else. There were charges filed
against Nichols which must have been
regarded as pretty strong by the presi
dent, for nearly two years of Nichols'
term remained unserved.

PURGING THE ROLLS.
Several Undeserving Pensioners
Are Palled Down.
Special to the Globe.
■Washington, June IG.-The work
of purging the pension foils has com
menced in earnest in the pension bu
reau. Twenty-five cases allowed under
the celebrated ruling of Assistant Sec
retary Bussey were taken before the
new board of review a few days ago,
and all but one will be declared wrong
fully on the rolls and ordered dropped.
This is the decision of the board of re
view, but it is probable that it may be
modified by Judge Lochren when
brought to him for approval. Strange
as it may seem, the very men
who entered most heartily into the
work of filling the rolls under Tanner
and Ravin are Mow disposed to go to
the other extremes, and unless pulled
down by their superiors, would do in
justice to honest and deserving appli
cants. While there will doubtless be a
large number ot pensioners under the
act of June, 1890, as construed by
Bussey, either dropped from the rolls or
reduced in amount of pension, it is not
the intention of the present administra
tion to do any more than is necessary to
carry out the laws as they are on the
statute book. The injustice of allowing
men who were early on deck to take
advantage of the Hberahtyof Tanner.
Raum and Bussey, as well as their dis
regard of the law, to remain on the rolls
when others just as deserving, but not
so swift, cannot get there, is appar
ent, aud was the reason for the estab
lishment of the board of review. But
there will be music when the board of
review gets down to solid work, if its
action on the first batch of cases may
be taken as a criterion.
Important Landmarks Destroyed
bj' an Electric Road.
Washivgton, June 16.— The secre
tary of war has received a report from
Mr. Batchelder.of the Gettysburg battie
field commission, setting forth at great
length th£ wanton destruction of im
portant landmarks on the field by the
operations of an electric railroad com
pany, by which he says the whole char
acter of the historic place is being
changed. Says the report:
"Tlie damage already committed is
very great, and can never be repaired,
but the present desecration is but the
commencement of what may be done if
this company is allowed to invade other
sections of the battlefield. Is it not
practicable to stop this wanton destruc
tion of one of the most important his
torical spots in this country, until the
government can decide its duty and its
powers? Every hour the most flagrant
depredations are committed, and if this
is allowed to be continued while the
government is deliberating, the injury
will be irreparable."
The report lias been refei red to Col.
Lincoln, the acting judge advocate gen

HAB BLOUAT UNSIGNED?
This Question Seems to Be Agi
tating the Correspondents.
Wasiiin gtox, June IC— Whether or
not Mr. Blount has resigned his posi
tion as minister instead of commissioner
to Hawaii cannot bo definitely deter
mined here. The probabilities seem
strongly to favor the assumption that
he has not resigned, though it is thought
quite likely ho may have ex
pressed a wish to be relieved at
an early day of a position which he
did not seek, and which is under
stood to l>e somewhat irksome to him.
The state department still carries Mr.
Blount's name on the register as min
ister and refuses to admit that he has
resigned. In view of these facts the
published statements that the place has
been offered to Consul-General Critten
den, in Mexico, and to Judge Sneeci, of
Kentucky, became a little perplexing,
inasmuch as it is positively said that
Mr. Blount's place is not regarded as
vacant, and consequently has not been
tendered to any one.

SHOT IN THE FOOT.
Result of a Social Call on Bo

Beilling sitting on the ground, and saw
Esohle and Hazze running away. The
police were notified, and at 1 o'clock
Patrolmen Brogan and Pothen arrested

street. Beilling was taken to the city
hospital, where it was found that the
bullet had struck the instep of his right
foot and, passing through, came out ou

volver, claims the gun went oft acci
dentally. Beilling's wound is not con
sidered at all serious.
SCANDAL IN A CHURCH.
Lively Times in a Detroit House of
' " ■ '•" Worship.
Detroit, Mich., June 10. — Unity
church, of this city, an almost creed
less organization of professing Chris
tians, is in the throes of scandal.
It seems that Rev. C. C. Good
rich, the pastor of the church, was
intending to procure a divorce from his
wife, with the knowledge and consent
of the board of trustees. Some of
the members were opposed to this, and
an effort was made to depose the
minister. At a meeting held this
evening grave charges made against the
minister were read. They had previ
ously been passed upon by the trustees
and discredited. Pastor "Goodrich re
plied to the charges in a lengthy ad
dress, supplemented by a large
threat? ned to tear down Smith, Fassett
& Co.'s building, Speeches of an in
cendiary character were made and two
or three red flags made their appearance.
The sheriff was called upon for pro
tection and he in turn made a
request for the militia. The lumbermen
sent out word that the men would be
paid oil' this afternoon, and this had the
effect of /quieting the crowd. The men
received their pay as promised and most
of them departed for their homes in

Serious Termination to a Ban
quet in Denver.
Denver, June IG.— About twenty
persons were poisoned by eating ice
cream during a banquet at the dedi
catory exercises at bt. Francis's hos
pital last night, and some -i of
them are in a serious condition.
Among the victims are most of "the
Catholic priests of the city and several
of the sisters at the hospital, as well as
a number of prominent Catholics.
Father O'Ryan is at St. Joseph's hospi
tal in a serious condition. It is not
thought any of the cases will prove
fatal. How the poison came into the
ice cream or what its nature has not
been decided, though probably it was
accidental. . -.

an Ohio Insane Asylum.
Dayton. 0., June 16.— George Smith,
an inmate of the insano asylum, was
murdered by some one unknown. It is
claimed by the officials of the institu
tion, that the deed was committed
by another patient. On that point
there is great doubt, and the coroner
] will investigate.- The body was shipped
to relatives at Eaton, who found that
death had been the result of broken
ribs and other brutal abuse. Two of
the more rational inmates of the asylum
state that Smith was killed :by attend

BACK IN GOTHAM.
Infanta Eulalia Arrives in Now
York a Little Fatigued From
She Is No Longer a Guest of the
Nation, and Will Soon Sail
New York, June 16.— The Infanta
Eulalia and party, somewhat fatigued
with all the sight-seeing and entertain
meut provided by the West, arrived in
this city this evening. The trip from
Niagara Falls was made without
any startling incident. At Buffalo,
where the train of Tullman
cars provided by the Pennsylvania
railroad came upon the New York
Central tracks, a big basket of fruit and
a bouquet of flowers, the gifts of
Chauncey M. Depew. president of the
Central, were presented to the princess.
She was delighted with them, and tak
ing Mr. Depew's card from the basket
of fruit, the princess wrote the follow
ing message, which was telegraphed, to
Mr. Depew from Syracuse:
"Hearty thanks tor beautiful present
of fruit and flowers.
The train ran ahead of the schedule
time of the limited express all the way
from Buffalo aud arrived at the Grand
Central station sixteen minutes ahead
of time. Quite a crowd had gathered to
meet tne princess. A long row ot palms
and potted plants lined the carpeted
platform and an awning covered
the sidewalk. A detail of police
kept the crowd back. J. B. Ce
ballos, who has placed his house
at the disposal of the infanta,
was on hand to receive her and his car
riage was at the door. The infanta took
Mr" Ceballos' arm and walked with him
to the carnage. The prince, who ap
peared in New York without whiskers
for the first time, followed with Gen.
Varnum, the Marchioness Arco-Her
mosa. the Duke of Tamames and other
members of the suite, and Commander
Davis, with his wife and daughter com
pleted the party. The princess and
party entered carriages at once
and were driven to the Ceballos resi
dence. Mr. Ceballos has vacated his
handsome house and gone to his coun
try residence, leaving his servants and
a complete establishment at the com
mand of the orincess for the time of her
stay in New York. This was done In
order to give a better opportunity for
rest and greater privacy than could be
had at a hotel.
Commander Davis said this evening
that his duties ended the moment the
urincess touched the platform. The
nation is no longer the host and the
princess is absolutely free from official
obligation of any kind. Commander
Davis is at the Hoffman house, where
he will remain until the princess sails
for Europe, June 24. He said that the
princess returned from Chicago very
much pleased with all that had been
done for her.
A St. Paul Typo Gets an OrHco in
the International Union.
Chicago, June 10.— The International
Typographical union today elected the
following delegates to the federation of
labor: Delegates Miller, of Boston;
Dorsey, of Dallas, and Druminond, of
Fort Wayne. W. H. Snyder. ot Topeka,
was'unanimously re-elected as agent of
tne Childs-Drexel home. The vacancy on
the board of trustees of the Childs-Drexel
home, caused by the expiration of the
term of Delegate Wood, of Atlanta,
was filled by the selection of Delegate
Colby, of Colorado Springs, Col. The
caucuses ot the eight old districts then
reported their nominees for organizers
and they were ratified. For two of the
proposed new districts, which go into
effect next November, the following
were selected by the convention. Ninth
district, W. B. O'Bleness, Dcs Moinas;
Tenth district. H. W. Dennett, St.
Paul. Louisville was decided upon as
the place of the next annual meeting.
The Driority law obtained the atten
tion of the convention the greater part
of the session. This law provides that
the foreman shall promote the man who
can show the greatest length of time.
The committee on laws recommended
the substitution of the old law
which gives the foreman entire
jurisdiction provided the one oro
nioted has subbed thirty adys.
It was also recommended that the
change should not take place until
ratified by the local unions. After a
long parliamentary struggle.the change
was made. In executive session the
discussion of the report upon the
Childs-Drexel home was taken up
where it was left yesterday. The Mc-
Intyre motion concerning the admission
of incurables was discussed but not
passed upon. Five thousand dollars

Tonawanda Passed Through a
Very Kxciting Day.
ToKA WANDA. N. V., June 18.— Xot a
stroke of work was done on the lumber
docks here today, and serious trouble
wa3 momentarily expected. An excited
crowd of full 800 persons, mostly
strikers and union lumber shovers,
thronged the entrance to the
bridge leading; to Little island this
morning. The situation was so threat
ening that the sheriff ordered the
Twenty-seventh separate company to
be in readiness for immediate action.
About half of the Poles went on the
island this morning, intending to 1:0 to
work, but they were threatened by the
others and gave up to their comrades.
All demanded their pay. Deputies
guarded the entrance to the bridge and
would let no striker over. Thejstrikers
were uneasy and showed signs of light.
A meeting was held this morning at
tended by 300 Poles, and strikers
patrolled the streets. Tonight the
excitement has largely sub
sided. The Poles this morning
number of letters in support of his
moral character. Wnen he had finished,
Rev. Mr. Bullock arose and announced
that he was prepared to prove that the
statements of Mr. Goodrich were dam
nably false." Mr. Goodrich at once
became violently angry, rushed upon
Mr. Bullock and seized him by the
throat. Several of the leading func
tionaries of the church interfered and
prevented what would undoubtedly
have resulted in a much more severe
assault. A scene of indescribable con
fusion ensued. Women, who largely
predominated, screamed, and several
fainted. The meeting finally broke up
in great disorder. A disruption of the
church will, it is said, resujt.
Rev. Mr. Bullock exhibits letters writ
ten to Pastor Goodricii by a lady of the
congregation which are decidedly im
proper for a single woman to send to a
married man, and the authenticity of
which, it is claimed, is not questioned.

It was a serious moment in the Jen

tears, and tried to speak, but Mr. Jen

Mrs. Jennings wiped her glasses, and
prepared to read a letter that she had

To think that their Helen, who had

"does any one dare to address our little

" 'Existence' spelled with an a, too.''
