A wild max, perfectly nude, has
been captured in the woods near Lo
gar.sport, md. These nude freaks have
an inconvenient habit of turning up
just about the beginning of cold
weather. They are clothed and housed
tor the winter by the charitably dis
posed, and are turned out in the spring
again, ready for another summer's frolic.
Perhaps their "wildness" might be
cured by letting them spend a month or
two of winter out in the snow.
To our remark that we could not re

1890, go into hysterics of laudation over

before and after its passage. We stand
corrected, and ask our contemporary's
pardon. We were misled by the general

St. Paul, a village in Indiana, has
been visited by a ghost recently, and
the people have been much per
turbed thereat. Both men and beasts
have been terrified by the apparition,
which haunts a gloomy cave that fronts
on a muddy stream. It is still a subject
of terror to the inhabitants, but, as the
spot is shortly to be visited by a delega
tion of Chicago newspaper men, the
spook will soon be laid. It will fly the
.country rather than subject itself to the
ordeal of an interview.
A gentleman recently returned from
a week's visit in Cincinnati says that
the Democratic business men there are
so enraged over the opposition of the
Southern senators to the repeal bill that
they are going to vote for McKiuley.
This enables one to understand some
things about Cincinnati that were be
fore inexplicable by any of the ordinary
and sane motives of men. The plan to

Marshall Field has given a million dol

We have heard and read of numer
ous instances at the £reat exposition
which showed greed, rascality and nig

lady managers of the fair to discount
heavily anything that had been dis

the bill, amounting to some $400. Such.

which the unfortunate escort must pay?
For the sake of womanhood, however,

MURDER MOST FOUL.
The darkest crime that has stained
the pages of American history since
President Garfield was slain by Charles
J. Guiteau was_perpetrated in Chicago
Mayor Carter Henry narrison was
shot by an assassin who had gained ad
mittance to his house, and died twenty
minutes afterwards. The miscreant
fled, but was apprehended soon after
wards, and proved to be an insane fel
•ow who claimed that he had been
promised an office which had been un
fairly withheld from him by the mayor.
Mr. Harrison was a phenomenal man
— phenomenal in the versatility of his
genius, in the peculiarity of his political
career, in his personal magnetism, in
his boundless success. He had the
power to win men to him by adroitest
flattery, to mould them to his purposes
by catering to their self-interest, to
transform his enemies iuto his warmest
friends by chastisement. He was vain
of his own accomplishments, and did
not hesitate at self-praise. But he was
never offensive in his self-adulation,
for it was always adroitly worded so as
to flatter him who Heard it no less than
to speak his own praise. His wonderful
knowledge of the frailties of men gave
him power over them— power to com
mand or persuade. He never stooped
to entreaty; his was too proud a nature
Maligned by his political adversaries
for many long years, denounced as a
demagogue and a time-server, charged
with malfeasance, of which he was as
innocent as the babe newly bom, Mr.
Harrison never flinched or sought re
treat. He gave a Koland for an Oliver,
lie wielded a free lance in every politi
cal battle, for he owed nothing to the
party machine. Sometimes he was able
to wring a reluctant support from con
ventions and politicians, but as a rule
he had to depend upon his own re
sources. He boasted his independence
of ring dictation, aud thus secured tlie
support of opponents of the rings: yet
when in office he wielded the powers
conferred upon him so as to make all
rings subservient to his own purposes.
Yet he was ever regardful of the cause
of the poor, and, though himself rich,
hurled philippics upon the heads of the
capitalists. He conducted no under
handed plots; his fighting was conduct
ed in the opsn field. He asked only a
fair light aud no favor.
As a politician. Carter Harrison was
crafty, yet straightforward, lie never
foruot to reward a friend, or failed to
punish an enemy. His fidelity to his
friends was one of the chief elements of
his strength. As a citizen he was above
reproach. Uis private life was blame
less. He loved public adulation, and
sought office for its honors rather than
its emoluments. It was his proudeot
boast that he made the best mayor Chi
cago ever had, and his bitterest ene
mies could not gainsay the vaunt. For
under his administration vice was re
strained within prescribed limits and
kept under constant surveillance, the
public streets were kept clean, and each
city oflicial held to a rigid accountabil
ity. His personal honesty was unas
sailable, and he demanded equal recti
tude on the part of all others entrusted
with the performance of public duties.
Death has put an untimely end to the
career of this remarkable man. Per
haps the deep damnation of his taking
off will quiet the voice of calumny that
has so persistently assailed him, and his
sterling qualities of mind and heart
will receive that recognition that is
their uieod. lie is no longer anybody's
antagonist; he stands in the way of uo
one's ambitions. His few weaknesses
were not the outgrowth of vif.iousness,
but of an honorable egotism— the con
sciousness of having well performed
his duty to his fellow citizens.
And in this hour of general sorrow— a
grief that overleaps sectional boundaries
and surpasses partisan ties— there will
be a universal sympathy for the woman
who was shortly to become Mr. Harri
son's bride. Widowed without having
been a wife, her grief is sacred. If sym
pathy could assuage it she would feel no
pang. The tragedy that has rent her
heart asunder has wounded us all.
A. WILLIAMS FORT INCIDENT.
The mills of the god 9 are noted in
song, story and proverb for exceptional
procrastination. They love to linger in
their grinding; nevertheless when they
do get down to business they are equally
prone—in proverb aud poetry — to do
very fine work.
This brief section of philosophical
cogitation was provoked by reading in
the^aily newspapers a day or two since
that Mr. Van Beck, chairman of the
board of county commissioners of Em
mons county, North Dakota, Had been
convicted of the crime of bribery at
Williamsport, and fined ?100 aud costs
therefor. The conviction also carries
disfranchisement with it under the laws
of that state, and forever debars Mr.
Van Beck from either voting or holding
any ollice of trust, honor or emolument
in the state. It seems also that section
89 of the North Dakota state constitu
tion is so worded that even the legisla
ture would not have the power to re
store Mr. Van Beck to citizenship.
The item conveying this piece of iu
formation does not conline itself to a
concise statement of the news, but goes
on to say that "Mr. Van Beck is a
thrifty Hollander, thirty-six years of
age, a busy and well-to-do merchant,
and well liked in the county, except by
his political opponents. But he used
money at the last general election iv a
very clumsy and reprehensible manner,
and the jury was out only a few min
utes after the case had been given to
them by the court."
A portion of this information is en
tirely gratuitous. Without being vouched
for by the reporter, there would be no
reasonable motive to question the fact
that Mr. Van Beck was "thrilty." Un
fortunately, the thrift of this well-to-do
merchant of Williamsport was offset
and counteracted— hamstrung, as it
were— by his "clumsiness." Just why
the intelligent correspondent should
have coupled together the two words
"clumsy" and "reprehensible" does not
appear; for evidently (according to the
North Dakota code) the offense could
not -have been "reprehensible" if it had
not first been "clumsy."
But what the Globe desires to learn
; 1 r£ffi~~gKffiTlTtffrTslTLT Sunday ; mornincT 6tff6M£~ W iM^WilW^fl^m
is: Have the people of North Dakota
determined to follow the precedent es
tablished at Williamsport? Is it the
grave and deliberate intention of that
intelligent and progressive people to
stand the history of their growing com
monwealth upon its head in this un
fortunate manner? If so, how are cap
itals to be removed as the state marches
down the avenue of the centuries
toward the mist-enshrouded future?
Is the "whack-up" for the boys to be
forever ignored during political cam
paigns for all coming time? Is the
pregnant and pertinent question, "How
much is there in it for me?'
to remain entirely unanswered in
all future contests for the position
of United States senator? It seems to
the Globe that the justice who presided
•at the Williamsport term was unrea
sonably iconoclastic in his decision;
that the jury did not fully comprehend
the more remote consequences of thus
remorselessly uprooting the traditionsof
a great, free and growing people. And
then, it is also unfortunately possible
that this precedent may not be content
to abide in Williamsport, or even to con
fine itself to the pent-up Utica of North
Dakota. It is simply horritying to
contemplate the disastrous results
which might follow in case this per
nicious example should riile across the
border into Minnesota on the wings of
the first blizzard of the coming winter
and assimilate itself to the clitnato
politicai conditions of Li'Etoile dv Nord
A senatorial election is to take place
here iv January, 1895. Were the rights
and immunities of boodle to be ruth
lessly torn up by the roots, what motive
could be found to persuade our blossom
ing statesmen to enter the legislative
contests throughout the state next fall?
The Globe does not wish to be placed
in the position of condemning the ver
diet of the Emmons county jury by
which tor. Van Beck was convicted.
The purpose of this article is, lather, to.
blaze the bark on one more tree which
inarks the advance of civilization to
another station on the new road toward
political enlightenment. Awayoutin the
valley of the muddy Missouri the people
seem to have placed at least one gar
ment on the strumpet of political cor
ruption. It may be inadequate to en
tirely conceal her nakedness, but, any
how, the clothing process has com
menced. It is beside the purpose to say
that Mr. Van B^ek was convicted because
he was "clumsy," or "blundering" or
"awkward." In the free air of our
bracing Northwest, Liberty sometimes
so tills her lungs with the ozone as to
take on the aspect of license. It is an
encouraging sign of progress that any
man, uo matter how "awkward" or
"clumsy" in giving or taking bribes,
could be convicted and punished. Of
course, Mr. Van Beck's "misfortune"
will be only slightly deterrent of other
corruptionists. So long as men are
found in American politics mean
enough to offer a monetary consid
eration for support, they will certainly
find their twin harlot anxious to
dispose ot his virtue in the market for a
consideration more or less valuable.
What is encouraging in the Williams
port incident is that anybody should
have been caught and convicted any
where for so common an occurrence as
civing or receiving a "consideration"
for doing or not doing a certain political
or official act.
Let us crown Williamsport with
laurel. Let the name of Williamsport
be made forever memorable in history-
Let us amend the lexicons so that Will
iamsport may be constituted a synonym
for political and official honesty. Let
us teach the sheriffs and clerks all over
the nation to search for Williamsport
juries, and demand that courts shall
everywhere mete out Williamsport
justice. Of course, this would seriously
disturb the market in a large aud grow
ing industry, but in the end both public
and private virtue would be the gain
The Globe sincerely sympathizes
with the vpell-ro-do merchant, Mr. Van
Beck, but desires to publicly congratu

A MILLION FOR A MUSEUM.

Marshall Field, the Chicago merchant
prince, who has donated a million dol
lars to found a free museum at Chicago,
the nucleus of which is to be the ex
hibits that can be procured from the
world's fair, is less than sixty years of
age. He began his career as a sales
man in the employ of Potter Palmer
just prior to the outbreak of the war.
Od the retiremsnt of Mr. Palmer from
the dry goods trade, Mr. Field, together
with three associates in the same estab
lishment, purchased the business, and
conducted it under the firm name of
Field, Leiter & Co. until about ten
years ago, when Mr. Leiter, who had
become largely interested in real estate
and building enterprises, retired. Mr.
Field is still at tiie head of the firm,
which is the largest wholesale and re
tail dry goods house in the United
States. Mr. Field's wealth is variously
estimated at from thirty to sixty million
dollars, yet he exercises a close personal
supervision over detail of his business.

Charles L. Fair, the only surviving
son of ex-Senator Fair, of Nevada, has
made a reputation for himself as the
fastest of the fast youue men of San
Francisco, and is not entirely unknown
in Chicago. New York, Paris, Londou
and various other cities, whither he has
journeyed in search of pleasure and
excitement. His relatives and friends
lonn: ago ceased to manifest surprise
at his escapades, aud it seemed doubt
ful if there was anythiug he nad left
uudone that could cause them new as
His recent marriage, however, capped
the climax of his wild career, and cre
ated a sensation that made his former
doings seem tame indeed. His father
at once declared that he would have
nothing further to do witn his son, and
emphasized his displeasure by adding a
codicil to his will cutting the young
man off with a legacy of 6100, and giv
ing his reasons therefor. As the ex
senator is worth nearly §50,000,000, and
lias but three children to divide his
wealth among, it would seem at the
lowest estimate that his father's dis
pleasure has probably cost young Fair
at least $15. 000,000.
He will not be left penniless, how
ever, for under the will of his mother,
who died several years ago, he will

and in the meantime he has an income

The youne mail's wedding was de
cidedly informal. He and his bride
crossed the bay from San Francisco to
Oakland, procured a license and were
married in the presence of the only two

was the driver of the hack in which
they rode and the other the clergyman's

How the Queen Regent of Spain
Astonished Her Ministers.
When Alfonso XII. of Spain died.
Queen Christina took her ministers'
breath away by refusing to accept the
$200,000 a year she was entitled to as
regent and widow of the late monarch.
Without a moment's hesitation she
bestan her regency with this act of un
selfishness. She told her ministers that
she thought Spain was not in a position
to pay both king and regent. No regent
or relict of a sovereign ever had been
refused this pension, and Queen Chris
tina's step caused a sensation.
Her majesty undertook to carry on
the ceremonial of the Bourbon court
with the annual stipend allotted to her
three children by the cortes. Little
King Alfonso gets $1,400,000 a year, the
Princess of Asturias $100,000, and the
Infanta Maria $50,000.
The queen administers the salaries of
her children herself. All the grandeur
and pomp of the proudest court in
Europe Is paid for by her out of these
sums. One might be disposed to think
this a good deal of money, indeed but
the life of any private individual can
never furnish a standard by which to

estimate the waste and exaggerations
on all Bides that royalty pays for with
the money of the nation.
Few people can imagine the cost of
keeping up the royal palaces at Madrid,
El Pardo. Escurial, Avanjuez, La
Qranja and San Sebastian, each with its
host of servants and retainers.
The stables alone of the royal palace
cf Madrid cost a fortune to keep up.
though the regent has greatly reduced
the number of horses and lackeys since
the death of Alfonso, who took pride in
his splendid teams, liveries, carriages
and his stud of hunters aud thorough
The private expenses ot the royal
family would not be excessive, but the
queen is obliged to extend unlimited
and stately hospitality, and many peo
ple not upon rtie household lists live
upon the palaca in some sort.
The queen and her children live and
dress simply, comparatively speaking,
but they are expected to pay at least
teu times more than any ono cisc for
what they buy, and they are often
obliged to pay for things which are sim
ply forced upon them. Within a short
time the queen had to pay SIOO.OOO for a
portrait of her son. which is such a bad
likeness that she can never hang it.
Then she was expected to pay §5,000 for
a little painting in which a talented
Spanish artist had only cast on canvas a

For Baby's Crib.
Pretty little quilts can be made for
baby's crib by taking 2)4 yards of scrim
or cheesecloth, putting in the cotton
batting smoothly, covering 1)4 yards,
turning over the other \}i yards and
neatly running it along the edge. If
the edge is to be worked of zephyr, take
about six strands of Uermantown wool
and tie down in little tufts as in large
comfortables, If the ruffle is put on in
lace, then little bows are made of baby
ribbon and tacked on in Irregular rows.
These little affairs can be made as inex
pensive or elaborate as ono wishes.

Reps. Getting Desperate.
Down in Ohio it is openly charged by
the Democratic leaders that the Mc-
Kinley managers are responsible for the
deferring of the opening of many mills
and factories beyond the regular time,
so as to give them a chance to work the
hard times racket.
If a minority may rule the country
till October, 1804, why might it not rule
beyond that date, especially if in the
meantime it should become still more
