The long conflict between State
Auditor Biermann on the one hand and
the Great Northern Railway company,
aided by Gov. Nelson and backed by
"the policy established several years
ago by the \Republicau) officers ot this
state,'' is ended, and the auditor tri
The readers of the GLOBE are familiar
with the story cf this eonti'Ct. They
were made acquainted with it first in
tne letter to the voters of the state pub
lished some months ago. in which the
auditor told the long story of the efforts
made by the Ureal Northern company
to induce and then cajole and at last to
coerce him into certifying to it such of
the swamp lands as it might select.
Failing this, it sought to deprive him of
his duties as land commissioner by act
of the legislature. Then by the dili
gent circulation of slanders its agents
turned the Populist convention against
him, though he had been the candidate
by indorsement of that party four years
ago. Then ifiey gathered their forces
to a final contest in the Democratic
stato convention and were defeated.
Meantime, the auditor was engaged
In having the lauds examined, so as to
ascertain their value, in order that he
might retain the best tor the state. This
tedious work completed, he prepared
the deed, and on Sept. .0 sent it to Gov.
Nelson for execution. Here that officer
appeared newly in the case as the
guardian ot the railway company, hav
ing merely been the custodian of its
lists of selected lands befoie. His duty
is plain. When the auditor properly
certifies the land to a company or indi
vidual and sends the patent, it is the
governor's duly to execute it. There is
110 discretion given him. and no gov
ernor before ever claimed he had any.
But Gov. Nelson was equal to the
emergency in which the company found
itself. All that was wanted was time.
If the matter could be deferred until
after election, and Nelson and Dunn
were elected, the deed could go to the
waste basket. The governor is familiar
with the delays of the law. So he in
voked its procrastinating habit, and re
ferred the matter to the attorney gen
eral, with a commission to examine a
held ot law and fact that would take a
month to cover, if covered.
Not only this, lint lie writes the au
ditor a letter, which we imagine he now
regrets having written, in which he ex
presses Id surprise that the auditor
should dare to a.-k him to reverse a
"policy established several years ago
by the (Republican) officers of the
state" and establish a now one. What
was this policy which the governor
wished to sustain? Merely the very con
venient and valuable one of letting the
Great Northern pick out the lands it
wanted and deeding them to it. Under
this "policy"' 229.000 acres had been se
lected and deeded. No wonder the
company v anted it continued, and no
wonder the governor, us the guardian
of the "and others," was surprised at
the audacity of this Democratic auditor
in asking its reversal.
But the aitoruey general's office had
heard the roar of the coming cyclone,
and did not propose to get in its way.
The plan of delay broke down right
there. The attorney general was ex
traordinarily expeditious, He exams
hied the law and the decision of the
supreme court, and we print this morn
ing his opinion. in which he sustains
the auditor at every ooint. Mr. Bier
mann was undoubtedly right. The
'•policy established by (Republican)
state officers several years ago" was an
illegal policy. It was a fraud on the
people. It hadn't a leg to stand 011.
More titan that. The governor. was
plainly told by Ins law officer that it
was his duty to sign the deeds when the
proper, officer certified that the company
was entitled to it.
Then this "reliable governor," who
wanted to look after "the interests of
the state and others involved in this
transaction," this "careful and conserv
ative governor," who "called the audi
tor's attention to the fact that he was
asking him to violate the established
policy of the state," saw that the game
was up; that he was smoked out; that
he could no longer shield the "and oth
ers" in the transaction; that any further
delay was impossible and that he could
not keep his promise to the Great
Northern to "hold the. matter in abey
ance until the question between Hand
the auditor was settled by legal pro
ceedings or otherwise;" and then he
signed the deed and returned it by
messenger— by mail this time-to
And so the long struggle of Auditor
Biermann In defense of the rights „f
the people of the state against this com
pany and its assistant ended in a com
plete triumph for the auditor and the
people, and fully five million dollars are
saved to the institutions of the state
In the face of the storm of vilification
which the organs of the company and
the governor have turned on him- un
deterred by their efforts to make him
appear as a mere demagogue trying to
make political capital for himself; un
abashed by their charge that he* was
overturning "an established policy of
• the state," Auditor Biermann has "kept
his rudder true" arid held to his course
of duty. And . a week from today the
. voters of the slate will say to Mr. Bier
ma ii: "Well done, thou good and faith

In the interest of dodge Collins, but
we hope for the sake of the common de
cencies of manhood not with his con
nivance or assent, a mimeograph circu
lar is being mailed out to the Repub
lican papers of the slate containing a
most scurrilous aud libelous attack on
Judge Willis. It accuses him of being
a fool, a knave, a bigot, a' fraud and a
demagogue, lt bears the stamp of "the
Committee of One Hundred," but has
no signatures, nor has it anything to
indicate its origin or authorship. LV A
copy was sent to the Progressive Age,
whose editor. Prof. Dobbyu, is a per
sonal friend of Judge Willis, and he
sent it to the judge.
The attack is one of those blows that
defeat themselves of their object
by their own venom and • ■•- rancor.
Whoever designed it was an Igno
ramus iv partisan attack, lf a prac
ticed hand drew it, he let' his in
terest or his intense personal feelings
get away with his skill. It should have
beeu submitted to the editor ot the Pio
neer Kress for revision before it was
sent out. To call a man a 100 l and a
man of letters and ability in the same
breath is to send a speedy antidote after
the poisoned shaft. The attack will fall
flat. No man. not already prejudiced by
his partisanry. but will perceive that
the instigator of the attack is so blind
in his malice that he does not hesitate to
invent and use the most palpable false
hoods. Then the American loves fair
play, and has a healthy contempt for
the coward who can attack the charac
ter of a fellow man in a circular to
which lie date not attach his name.
Judge Wiliis has lived in this city
many years. The character he devel
oped and the reputation lie won so com
mended him to Gov. McGill that he
made him a member of the state board
of charities and corrections, and he
served during the terms of Gov. Mer
riam by his reappointment. Neither of
these gentlemen would put in so honor
able and responsible a place a man who
was a fool, a knave, a fraud and a dem
agogue; nor could a man who had fairly
won the reputation of 1 being what this
cowardly, lying circular says Judge
Wiiiis is have ever been chosen by the
electors of Ramsey county to be a district
judge. Judge Collins owes it to himself
to publicly disavow this circular, and
all connection with or responsibility
for it. '
Gov. Nei.nox lias pleaded guilty and
thrown himself on the mercy of the
court. Sentence will be pronounced
one week from today.
HART-SU IN M.1.\.\k..-.POhIS.
The conflict in the Fifth, district is
one of brains and conscience against
brass and boodle. Courage and honesty
on the one hand against cowardice and
subterfuge on the other. Free trade,
with its open methods, is arrayed
against protection with its devious ways,
lt is science against empiricism; fact
against fancy; the doctor against the
quack; the lawyer against the shyster:
in short. Democracy against Republic
Brain and boodle are active agents in
the campaign, lt is Ericsson's brain
against Fletcher's money. The former
draws to its support the intellect of the
district and the country; the latter
creates a Populist side show with an
investment of $500. The one summons
by the law of attraction the aid of
George and Harter and Shearman; the
latter imports Mckinley and Reed to
aid in the obscuration of truth and fact.
Tonight the cause ot enlarging the
scope of the freedom of mankind will
have au advocate in Hon. Micnael I).
Harter, a member of congress from
Ohio, one of the very few men with
enough of force of ability and character
to make himself prominent In bis lirst
congressional term. He stands hi the
rank with Tom Johnson and De Wilt
Warner and our own Hall in this
marked and exceptional prominence.
There were Democrats in congress
who were not ashamed to demand re
duction of taxation on every industry
but, their own or those of their district.
Mr. Hurler is not one of that kind. He
is one of the largest manufacturers of
farm implements iv the country. He is
the head of the Aultman & Taylor
factory in Mansfield. He took a stand
in the house for free farm implements,
lt the purpose of taxing imports of
these was to protect the manufacturer,
he for one didn't need it. If its purpose
was to enable manufacturers to charge
the home customers more for their im
plements, then it was an infernal out
rage, lt is to Mr. Harter, a manufac
turer of farm implements, that the
farmers of the country largely owe it
that their tools and machinery are on
the tree list.
But it was not as a free trader alone
that Mr. Harter won distinction. He
has also made finance a study, bring
ing to it iiis experience as a bank offi
cer and a manufacturer. He has dis
cussed the topic in our leading maga
zines, and the committee on banking
aud currency has used his bill to en
large and simplify our, national bank
ing act in the preparation of its own
measure now pending. We have dis
cussed Mr. Harter's plan in the Globe.
and it lias received the indorsement of
leading financiers in the Eastern states.
Mr. Harter will not amuse his audi
ence with the jokes and sneers and
drawl of Mr. Reed, nor float it on the
turgid eloquence of MeKiniey, nor soar
into the clouds on wings of rhetoric
with Davis;, but he will give it a
plain, sensible, honest and convincing
talk on questions that are of vital im
portance to it.
GIVK AN ACCOUNT.
lias any one seen an itemized state
ment of Harris Richardson's return on
the prosecution of the Bobdun case
against C. A. Smith & Co.? There is a
discrepancy of some $15,000 between the
political report which is being made
from the hustings aud the business re

The Alexandria Republican, Gov.
Nelson's home organ, goes into a tit of
dangerous delirium over the prospect of
Mr. Nelson's defeat, and Hails Auditor
Biermann in four columns of the most
insane raving which has appeared, even
in this campaign. The burden of the
Republican's plaintive wail is that Bier
mann has contributed to Nelson's defeat,
j which it virtually concedes, by "attack
! ing" the position of the governor on his
connection with the Great Northern
land grab. It is really too bad. '- you
know, that Mr. Biermann, a Democrat
and tho representative of the people,

to satiate the vengeance of the Great
Northern ■ and its governor upon the

instead of the $.5,000,000 tract which had
been picked out by Air. Nelson, Mr.

Republican, but you will find that it is
not as possible as It is "necessary."
COCHRAN IN THE FOURTH.
It should be the aim and . endeavor
always of public-spirited citizens to sco
to it that St. Paul is represented in the
legislature by capable, energetic and .
honest business men. It is especially
necessary that such men be sent there
this year, in' view of the many important
matters that will arise affecting the in
terests and welfare of St. Paul. For
this reason tho business men and care
ful citizens of the Fourth ward will
support for representative in that ward
W. K. Cochran, the Democratic candi
date, who - stands before the people
without a blot on his reputation. He is
absolutely free from embarrassment,
and is not a professional politician,
with - numerous axes to grind. He
is intelligent, honest, able, and his
references are the best business men of
the city. Regardless of their political
opinions, they will cast their votes for
him, knowing that he will give to their
interests and • the interests of the
city the careful and undivided atteu
tian so essential this year. There are
many Republicans who have called on
Mr. Cochran and' volunteered their
support on the ground, as stated plainly
by them, that they believe him to be
the more capable man of the two put in
the field by the two parties. Mr. Coch
ran is making a dignified and manly
canvass, and should be elected by a
good, round majority. The business
men will contribute to his election for
the same reason that they have rallied
to the support of Hon. P. H. Kelly, and
regardless of their political belief.
It is hardly complimentary to the
standing of Gov. Nelson as a lawyer that
the attorney general should have to in
form him that his "long-established
policy" was an illegal one, and that "it
is obvious not only that the selections of
ands for the said company may be made
by the state, but that it has always been
within the power of the state to make
selections and convey the same to the
said company as fast as earned." Pity
it hadn't been as "obvious" to his excel
lency before he began to play his little
game to protect the "and others."
No. Anxious Inquirer, the 229,000
acres deeded to the Great Northern
under "the policy established several
years ago by the (Republican) officers of
the state" cannot be recovered. The
prior right of selection was one the
state could waive, and tho "policy" re
ferred to was to waive the state's right
whenever the Great Northern wanted.
That land is gone, and can be charged
off to profit aud loss.

Honors for Caprivi and Zu Eulen

BEHi.iN.Oct. 20.— The Reichsanzeiger,

conferred upon Gen. yon Caprivi the
Order of the Black Eagle, set with
brilliants, and that his majesty has be
stowed upon Count Botho Eulenberg
the cross and star of grand commander
of the Hohenzollern order. .
lt is understood that the emperor has
accepted the new chancellor's view
that the appointment of a reactionary
protestant, like Count zu Eulenberg, as
governor of Alsace Lorraine, would cre
ate bad feeling in that province. His
• majesty lias summoijed Prince Hoh

Count Eulenberg to the highest position
next to the chancellorship, with a
salary of a thousand dollars higher than
the chancellor receives, as compensa
tion for thtf slights cast upon him in the
Caprivi press, i 3 a further instance of
the intrusion of the impeiial feeling
into the government of the country
which is little calculated to . enlist pop

OUR CHARITY BALL.!
Fashicn, in a Dream of Love- '
liness, Was There in Full
THE EVENT OF ALL EVENTS,-
That Society Prides Itself In,,
Was All That Could Be
COSTUMES WERE LOVELY,
And the Participants Were, as
Ever, a Most flappy Ag- <
The charity ball— the traditional dem
ocratic function of society, the dream
and pride of fashion— has played its
happy role for 1894, and left the usual
multitude of charming memories. The
event at the Metropolitan last evening
was no less delightful than charity :
balls of past years, nor was It more ex-,
quisite, for nothing has ever been over
looked on these occasions that could
contribute to the comfort and pleasure
of participants and spectators.
It was a happy thought that two years
ago hit upon .the Metropolitan opera
house for the charity ball. The arrange
ments then made the occasion so enjoy
able that it was decided to preserve the
sub-flooring and hold the ball the com
ing year at the same place. Last year's
ball added to the conviction that
that was by far the most enjoy
able place for these events, and
the sub-flooring was. again preserved.
Tne house last evening was an exact
reproduction of the preceding two
years. The sub-flooring extended from
over the stage, beginning at the rear, to
the top of the circular railing that di
vides the parquet and dress circle, lt
was a unique and imposing arrange
ment. It seemed to be an immense
stage, on which the performers were
fairies and heroes.
At the rear of the stage was the same
dreamy Venetian garden. Far away it
seemed a wonderful, fairy scene so
far away that even the notes of the
music in the garden seemed to be soft
ened and shaded and blended by
distance, aud the performers looked
like Lilliputians. - The - effect of
the garden - scene was heightened
by' an artistic arrangement of
exotics and flowers of colors blended in
shades as though nature had done it,
while only a human master could have
accomplished it. In and about the
garden, along the sides of the sub
flooring, and arranged about the rail
ings of the boxes, there .were only
enough of green and color to make the
scene exquisite, not garish. \y_
lt was the Third United States in
fantry band that sat in the garden;
equipped with only brass instruments.
It is something of an innovation to
dance to the music of brass instead of
stringed instruments. But the man
agers had studied with care the effect of
both kinds of music, and . fouud the
brass instruments to be just as easy to
dance by as. stringed instruments, and
considerably more novel and impress
It was nearly 9 o'clock before the first
dance was called, lv the meantime
the assemblage was ' gathering, and
after brief enjoyments in the entrance
to the theater, shaking hands and pass
ing pleasantries, filing, in and covering
the stage for short side receptions, the
Ihe array of beautiful women and
handsome men St. Paul has always
with reason laid claim to was exempli
fied to the fullest extent, lt was diffi
cult to say, wheu the dance had fully
begun, whether the charms of personal
presence was more striking on the stage
than in the seats filled with spectators.
The Four Hundred were there. There
were also the aspirants who had looked
forward for many weeks to the event
with the hope of securing the long cov
eted recognition from the select. There
were the unaspiring who came
only to . see. There was no oue
present . In need of charity
it was not expected that any such would
be there. It was only society's contri
bution to charity, in which society was
enjoy its own exclusive self.permitting,
of course, all who paid the usual fee -to
enjoy themselves as best thuy might. ;
Naturally, the select shone to their
hearts' content they always do on
these occasions. But there were many
who do not belong to the Four Hundred,
and they seemed to have as good a time
as any of the rest.
At the same ime it was a charity
ball, not iv the sense alone of fashion,
but from a true sense of charity. Con
trary to the popular idea of fashion,
there is nothing in which society takes
so much pleasure Us in lending a help
ing hand lo the unfortunate.
The sweet buds - and debutantes were
tlif-re in rich profusion — St Paul has
not in many years turned out so many
new ones as on this occasion. These
young ladies were the surprise aud de
light of the occasion. : '-,■". I .
The Costumes were no less interesting
than the personnel of. the wearers. St.
Paul ladies have always borne the rep
utation of wearing ricli anil not gaudy
costumes: and they sustained their rep-:
utation last evening. There was a quiet
and exquisite richness in every costume!
seen. . y ' Aypf A.'ppfi
In the entrance to the theater was a
large, table exhibiting exquisite floral
designs. In the office of Manager Scott j
was a tabic, also decorated witii flow
ers. - Here it was tnat light refresh
ments were served.
The charity ball of 1894 , will ever be!
remembered as about the most enjoya- i
ble event ever given by St. Paul society, i
The night was dark and . stormy; j but j
nobody stayed away OH that account. !

Chicago seems to be the home of
child singers. A few years ago the

only twelve years old, Sadie lloisetl

the most remarkable aud highest de
veloped child singers ever before the
public, who have appeared wiih the
greatest success ill Chicago and other
cities. Nature has not alone endowed
idem with rare . voice, but a musical
talent so ex.raord'.uary that they are, at
the age ot twelve years, able to master
the most difficult operatic music with
an ease and finish that is almost beyond
belief. The .great Calve and members

for the benefit of the fund. Scharwenka
has just, returned from Europe, where
he has had a most successful concert
tour. From the Musical Courier of Oc
tober 24, l»i)l. we quote the following:
"The last concert of the new orchestra
at KrollV ou the 20th nit. had the
special attraction of Prof. Xaver Scliar
wenka's appearance as soloist. 1 never
heard the genial— and in- re in Berlin- !
very popular pianist, In better trim, and i
as he played his own first piano con- i
certo 111 b flat minor, you may imagine
that his conceptions left nothing to be
desired. The pretty schurzu was es
p»cially well: and brilliantly executed
and was received witli thundering ap
plause, while a triple recall and a
laurel wreath rewarded the artist at the
close ot his performance. — Berlin
