Washington, Dec. 24.— The resigna
tion iit United States Marshal Dona
hower has taken the managers some
what by surprise, and upset the calcula
tions of several people. To resign any
sort of an office in these hard times
was an unanticipated calamity.
The candidates for the succession are
all of them apparently unprepared, un

iSt. James. Tue captain, it will be re

Your correspondent, on the report
thru \V. M. Campbell was en route to
Washington to apply for the marshal
ship, searched all the hotel registers to
night, but his name could not be found.
J. E. Campbell, of St. Paul, reached the
Mount Vetnon hotel tonight, but as ne
innnedkiteiy proceeded to chnrcn it is
feared that he belongs to another
branch of the Campbell family.
John Clark, of St. Paul, is apparently
quietly awaiting results of other ap
J. Adam Bede, candidate for the
Bame position, with all the proverbial
recklessness of the born poet, lias
neglected to file anything of six ounces
in weight, although .adjured to do so
in the most touching terms by his friend
and backer, Maj. Baldwin. Evidently
he thought there was time enough— but
there he is.
< H late there has been little or no talk
of Maj- Henderson, of Minneapolis, al
though three months ago he loomed up
.momentarily with startling propor
tion. It is not known that he has any
considerable number of indorsements
on file, cr that he is even in the field
The district attorney situation is also
somewhat mixed. Mr. Hay is known
to be about as offensively partisan as
any man in the nation can be, and yet
it is by no means certain that he will
not last for several months yet.
It is reported here that Mr. Lawler

to the tost he will support Bede.
Stryker left for home two or three
days ago.feeling that be had made some
strong points by his personal interview
with tie attorney general and others
prominent in official circles.
The appointment shomld bemadeon

Mr. Cleveland remains to be seen. The
absence from Washington of the Dromi

It is thought here that Mr. Doran favors
Lienau for collector of internal rexenue,

the coliectorship, it will be difficult for
either of the St. Paul candidates to win

A Ttlob Burns Several Toll Houses
Palebmo, Dec. 24.— There has been
renewed and serious rioting, owing to
anti-octroi agitation, at Lercara di
Freddi, a town forty-eight miles from
here, which is famous for its sulphur
niiiK's. A crowd of peasants and work-
men, accompanied by their wives, as-
Eembled in front of the town hall, shout
ins "Down with the octroi!" "Down
with the municipality!" "Long live
the kin? and queen!" The mob then
marched to the octroi stations and
burned several of the toll houses.
Troops and gendarmes were hastily
summoned, and. after a sharp eontiict,
during which twoof the policemen were
wounded, the mob was dispersed. In
consequence of the repeated disturb

will be dispatched to that islaud.

PROPOSITION TO TAX INCOMES FRONT
MONTGOMERY ITS FATHER.
The Representative Explains Why

Somewhat by a Wedding Cere
Washington, Dec. 24.— While sore
of the members of the ways and means
committee are working during the re
cess, others are making a holiday of it.
In fact, it is claimed that little can o. 1
done until the eleven majority mem
bers of the ways and means commit: •_•

mittee on internal revenue. Messr.-.
McMillin and Bryan reported a plan
iv favor of an individual in

against It and suggested the plan of a
tax on the incomes from invested
wealth. Mr. Montgomery defends his
plan, and says that he could get into
any community and combat any argu
ment for the plan suggested by the other
memoersof the committee.
"In the first place," said Mr. Mont
gomery, "if a man has $100,000 and en
gages in any business enterprise, he
will give employment to many people,
and is a beueflt to the community. If be

not care how the money gets in circula
tion, it benefits the people. If the
profits are invested in stocks and bonds,
the man does not spend it, but gets a re

he should pay taxes for the support of

While Mr. Montgomery was talking
Mr. Stevens, of the committee, saia, in
a jocular manner, that he believed that
he would win other members of the
committee, who disagree about the
income tax, to support a proposition to
put a duty on sugar to make up the
deficit, which was expected to be raised
by the tax on incomes. This is ouly an
indication that all the members of the
committee, as well as many in the
house, are not altogether satisfied with
the injome tax proposition, and that a
duty on sugar is yet a question to be
BALD WIN'S MAIL LARGE,
But He Will Not Swerve on the
Special to the Globe.
Washington, Dec. 24.— The member
from the Sixth district is receiving
something less than a peck of letters
daily concerning the tariff. They come
from all sorts of people concerning all
sorts of vagaries, though chiefly direct
ed towards the subject of iron. Maj.
Baldwin is in something of a quandary
as to just what the people of lih district
wish, iiavuitr been elected as a Demo
crat on a plain Democratic platform, he
thought he had-a nzht to assume that
the voters of his district wished him to
act with the Democratic party in its
efforts iookiue to tariil reform. Now,
however, there are Democratic constitu
ents, as well as many of the Republican
persuasion, who are insisting that he
kick over the Democratic doctrine of
reform in the tariff, so far as the indus
tries of his particular district are con
cerned. He sees no way out of the
difficulty except to use his personal
efforts to modify the iron provisions of
the tariff bill so far as possible, and
then cast his vote with his party upon
the bill as it is finally arranged by a
majority of his party.
CUPID IN THE WAY.
A Wedding Will Delay the State
Washington, Dec. 24.— The consid
eration of the bills providing for the
admission of the territories to the union
as states will be delayed somewhat
after the reconvening of congress by the
marriage or Senator Faulkner, chair
man of the senate committee on terri
tories, which will occur on the 3d of
Jauuary, the day set for the reassem
bling of congress.
Hopkins at the Capital.
Washington, Dec. 24.— John P. Hop
kins, mayor-elect of Chicago, arrived in
this city this afternoon. He is accom
panied by Jonu S. Hooper, of Chicago.
Mr. Hopkins and Comptroller of the
Currency Eckels had a conference this
evening in refereuce, it is said, to the
relinquishing of tne receivership of the
Chemical National Bank of Chicago.
He will leave for Chicago tomorrow.
No Orders for the New York.
Washington, Dec. 24.— 1t was stated
semi-officially tonight that the orders
for the cruiser New Yoik had not beeu
issued up to this time. It is likely that
the orders will be forwarded tomorrow.
TWO CABINET COUNCILS.
They Create Considerable Com
ment in Berlin.
BERLix.Dec. 24.— There is much com
ment on the fact that two cabinet coun
cils have been held since the publica
tion of Count Eulenburg's circular to
the provincial authorities. The first
meeting was held last Friday, aud lasted
for five hours. Chancellor yon Capiivi
aud the minister of war were present.
The discussion was an extremely aui
inated one. The second meeting took
place yesterday, it is a most unusual
thing for two meetings of the cabinet
to be held just before Christinas, and it
is rumored that the discussion turned
upon the alleged leaning of some Prus
sian minister towards the agrarians.
His attitude towards the Russian treaty
and the agitation among Prussian offi
cials against the imperial policy, it is
said, were also earnestly considered.
He Made -the Molds.
Bakcei.oxa, Dec. 24. — A printer
named Sivepot, twenty-two years of
age, has been arrested for implication
in the dynamite outrages, and has con
fessed that he made the mold in which
the bombs used recently with such dis
astrous effect were cast.
B'fhe prefect of police declares that he
has now sufficient material on hand to
unravel the entire anarchist conspiracy,
which he says extended to the principal
European centers a dto America. The
remarks of a child eight years old have
led to the most important discoveries.
Bismarck Not Indisposed.
Hamduro, Dec. 24. — Schweininger
will spend Christmas at Friedrichsruhe.
Rumors say that bis visit is due to the
lact that Prince BismarcK is indisposed,
but this report id uutrue.

his annual message, yesterday ex
pressed gratification that so much had
been accomplished. Secretary Greshaui
said he would take measures to have the
fac -simile of the memorial sent to all
foreign governments, and they will be
asked to take steps to bring about a
conference to carry out the plan which
originated at Chicago. Mr. itlack

ERRORS OF TEACHING.
To the Editor of the Globe.
The prevailing idea is that children
cau acquire little except by observation
and experiment. Everything must be
reduced to the senses, and teachers (?)
tell us that because philosophers mahe
experiments our children also must
make them. Seeds are put into the
earth and watered and watched before
the child can be taught how the plant
erow3. The caterpillar in its self-made
house is hung up In some corner of the
room and watched day after day until
the butterfly comes forth.
This kind of instruction is wrong
from an economical standpoint. It
takes an age of philosophy to demon
strate what & bright boy or girl will
learn in a single hour, and thd children
have no time to repeat the experiments
of Locke and Newton.
Toothpicks and beans are made to
form the basis of mathematical instruc
tion and many teachers are ready to
confess their indolence by saying, "it is
so much easier for the little ones." So
a vast amount of machinery interposes
between teacher and pupil, until the
one has found an easy chair and the
other has no hill to climb. Indolence of
thought on the part of teacher and
pupil characterizes the school work of
today; the child imitates and repeats,
but does not think. To know the effect
of this kind of toaching.compare Athens
with China. The one, whose place can
hardly be found on the map, has given
to us new sciences aud arts; the other
more than one-third the human race
has added not one particle to knowledge
or taken one step in improvement
There is uo escape from the law of
nature—the mind as well as the body
must work if It would grow.
All labor-saving devices in the school
room that come between the teacher
and the pupil lessen the influence of
the one and make a helpless and useless
being of the other. Another error in
teaching comes from the assumption
that all minds of a given age develop in
a like degree, and we have seen pupils
in certain grades forbidden to count
beyond five because "Grube's Method,"
or some other method, said that all
the combinations up to five must be
mastered before any larger number
could be considered. Mary can count
to a hundred, but she is not allowed to
count beyond five in the school room;
in fact, she must not know of any
higher number until she reaches the
Nothing is more harmful in the child
mind than retarding its natural tend
ency to crow in the way its Creator de
signed. The only grade nature has
made is the individual, and each one
must be guided and directed, but never
controlled or restricted, ret our would
be educators throw around the children
the restrictive barrier of "grade," with
its imperative "Thus far and no far
ther." The naturally bright and capable
ones are checked until indifference takes
the place of ambition; and the dull ones,
those who need tne most careful train
ing, are tortured into despair of passing
with their schoolmates into the next

hope to escape at the expiration of "the

It is admitted by the most thoughtful
teachers that methods and courses of
study are very much out of joint: that
results show us to be far behind the
other nations. But they do not at the
same time indicate the remedy. The
only conclusion to be reached "is that
they are eith«r unable, unwiliiug or
afraid. They should, then, give place to

A Halt in the Renewed I'.xpnrt
of Gold— How Far the Tariff
Question Affects Business
Only Conjecture — A Revival
or Industrial Activity Is K.\
Special to the Globe.
New York, Dec. 24.— The year in
Wall street draws to its close with the
usual disposition to contract operations
and close up accounts. To that extent,
this season always affords opportunity
for "bear" operations; and this year
those opportunities are perhaps unus
ually attractive. The "industrials", are
In an unusually exposed position. Not
only have they suffered from the gen
eral depression of trade, but it is prob
lematical as to how far they are likely
to be affected by the new tariff, and the
uncertainty on that point keeps them
constantly exposed to attack. The os
cillations in this group of stocks tend to
keep the general list more or less un
settled; and this fact, together with the
interruptions incident to the holiday
season, has somewhat impaired the
general tone of the market. There is,
nevertheless, a steady undertone of
confidence in the better class of railroad
stocks, which is supported by the still
active demand for bonds. It is gener
ally conceded that the prospects of the
railroads for the next few months do
not warrant the expectation of large
earnings; but that prospect has an offset
in the large economizing of operating,
repair and construction outlays, in the
of management, and in the fact that the
net earnings show an improving ratio as
compared with the gross. Rumors of
certain city banks having suffered in
connection with the Beeeher-Schenck
troubles, and the closing of the St.
Nicholas bank, developed Thursday and
Friday somewhat unsettled feeling
It was previously known, however, that
the institutions had suffered serious
losses; a nd the effect of the surprise
was correspondingly _ eased. Coming,
however, with the contracting incidents
attending the close of the year, these
occurrences have had a depressing effect
for the moment; but the event is
scarcely calculated to have any serious
results. It is perhaps not surprising
that some such developments should
follow the late serious crisis. Pending
the resort of the clearing house to the
use of certificates, it was found that this
bank was in a feeble condition; but it
was out of the question to leave it to its
fate under the prevailing excitement.
The stronger banks now feel that there
is no longer the same necessity for them
to cany an impaired institution, and
hence this concern was left to self-sup
port, which resulted in its
COMIXG TO GKIKF.
In the higher banking circles, this
disaster has been for some time regarded
as impending, aud the removal of the
consequent distrust will now have the
effect of strengthening the general
banking situation. There is a halt in
the renewed export of gold. For the
moment, Germany, whither all the
shipments have gone, appears to have
satisfied her wants, and there are no
symptoms of any important further im
mediate consignments. At the same
time, it is an almost invariable rule for
gold to go out at this season in settle
ment of annual balancings, and it
would not be surprising should some
further moderate amounts be sent. The
condition of the trade movement is not
suggestive of a continuous outflow. It
is true that our exports of produce are
light, but we have considerable surplus
stocks of grain, aud, what is more im
portant, the importations of mer
chandise are undergoing a very severe
contraction, and are likely to remain far
below the average volume until the new
tariff takes effect. It might be rather
fortunate than otherwise to part witb
fifteen or twenty millions of our gold.
The effect at home would be to reduce
the unhealthy surplus of money, aud
abroad to produce an ease in the money
markets calculated to develop a demand
alike for our securities and our prod
ucts. The tariff question continues to
keep business in
AN UNSETTLED CONDITION.
and may be expected to do so until the
new duties are fiually fixed. Conse
quently, the best that can be anticipated
for the next few weeks is a hand-to
mouth business. Discouraging as this
prospect may seem, it is not without
some alleviations. A market of ex
hausted stocks has always certain ad
vantages over a glutted one. Makers
and holders of merchandise, in such
conditions, have it in their power to
support prices and to make profits,
though it be upon largely reduced sales.
Nor is it to be overlooked that the tariff
prospects aud the depression of business
are combining to exclude competition
from foreign goods, aud hence the large
falling off in the current imports. There
can be no doubt that, in most branches
of trade, the production still coutiuues
much behind the consumption. This
foreshadows an ultimate exhaustion of
jobbers' and retailers' stocks to a point
that will leave a large vacuum to be
filled, in the filling of which manu
facturers should be in a position to ob
tain fair prices. It is therefore to be
expected that so soon as the new duties
are settled there will be a considerable
revival of industrial activity. That re
starting of production will give more
general employment to labor, and the
working million will gradually resume
its wonted position as an element of de
mand, and the country will step by step
regain its wonted prosperity. During
the iutervening period of inactivity
business can only remain severely con
tracted; but the country will feel that it
can afford to wait, provided there is a
hopeful prospect beyond.

DENOUNCED THE MAYOR.
Hot Shots From a Judge of a Ne
Omaha, Dec. 24.— The statute of the
state of Nebraska which conflicts with
an order or resolution of the city coun
cil is still the law of the land. That was
the effect of Judge Scott's decision in a
gambling case yesterday. Oue of the
big gambling houses had been brought
into court by a heavy loser, who
wished revenge. This called the at
tention of the court to the fact that
gambling houses were being run openly
in the city, in defiance of the state
law, on payment to the city of a
monthly fine ofSlso. In dissolving an <,
injunction which had been granted,
District Judge Scott severely arraigned
Mayor Bemis for Derraittinff the viola
tion of the law, saying: "Why is it
that the authorities of the city will
stretch forth their hands and the power
of their official positioon and say to a
man: "If you will pay §150 per month
you can carry on a business that is a
felony under the laws of the state?'
These officials violate their oaths of
office right here under the shadow of
the court house. This has got to stop
or the criminal courts have got to stop,
and 1 am in favor of stopping .
the gambling. Why is thjs done?-
It is done because it will put people in
office, and the chief executive of this ;
ciiy, who has violated his sworn duty,
should be impeached and branded as an
impeached scoundrel in office. 1 say
this in strong language and hope I will
be understood. 1 only wish I had
language strong enough to express my
feelings. A man was before this court
the other day for stealing $1 and was
sent to prison. Another man pays §150,
and is allowed to commit a felony and
walk the streets under the protecting
arm of Mayor Bemis."

WHAT a wonderful invention is the Phono
graph! How startling it seems to hear its
mysterious voice and its almost incompre
hensible music! If some means could only be de
vised to reproduce nature and art as the phono
graph reproduces sound. To sit comfortably in
our homes and see a panorama of the world's
glories pass in review before us, as easily as we
listen to the phonograph's open mouth.
We Have Accomplished It!
If this happy group had secured a copy of
Sights and Scenes of the World, their smiles
would be even more pronounced and their happi
- ness more unalloyed. What is more entrancing
than travel among the varied scenes and peoples of
the earth? We all love to travel, but some of us
haven't the means to do so, and those who are able
to travel like to live over again the memories of
the pleasant scenes of the past
In all such cases our great art publication fills
the bill. The selection of views is admirable, the
workmanship cannot be surpassed, and the plan is
without fault. The book complete would grace
any library in the world, and each part as received
will meet with admhation from every member of
the family. There is no work published which can
take the place of th is, or even successfully com
pare with it. It is the most magnificent premium
offer ever made by a newspaper, and it is our
earnest desire that all of our readers should profit
by it before it is too late.
