' THE TURN OF THE TIDE.
The election that occurred yester
day in the city of Indianapolis has a
national significance, in that it is
the first political contest in which
the people have voted since the re
turn of prosperous times. It is the
first test, though on a small scale,
of the feeling of the people toward
the Democratic party now that its
policy has matured, and events have
shown how little it was responsible
for the troubles that began in 1893
"%-id ended more than six months
ago. We could not ask for a more
cheering or significant result. A Re
publican majority of 3,000 in the city
In 1894 is changed into a Democratic
majority that promises to run to
5,000 in 1895, with the council trans
ferred from Republican to Demo
' cratic control.
Before the elections of last fall oc
curred, everybody knew that the
Republicans were going to win;
and those most familiar with
• political changes expected them
to win by enormous majori
ties. The people were disap
pointed, distressed, ready to vent
their dissatisfaction on the party in
power. The event justified ex
pectations. But the overthrow of
Democracy did not discourage those
"Who believe in the ultimate triumph
of right principles. They bided their
time. This year the signs in the
skies are as strongly indicative of a
great Democratic revival. The im
provement in business came too soon
to suit Republican plans. It has oc
curred under a Democratic admin
istration, and with the policy of the
party in effect. The bugaboo of al
leged injury by tariff reduction has
been rendered as harmless as that
upon which the silver party relied to
force the country to free coinage.
Free silver and Republicanism have
tumbled into the ditch together. The
tide has turned. It is with the Dem
ocratic party this year; and we be
lieve that the coming elections in
all the states will show such Demo
cratic gains as shall place the party
confidently in the race for the na
tional, election of 1896. It is as the
first proof of this that the Indianap
olis election has an importance that
reaches beyond the local field. The
people are with us again. Democ
racy has but to be true to itself and
it will win.
another demand on the TAX
. It is probable that, if the taxpayers
of the city take no action to prevent
it, the projected expenditure of a
large-sum of money in the improve
ment of Park and Como avenues
■will be carried through. A species
of agreement seems to have been
reached between the park board and
the city council by which this fur
ther burden is to be added to that
■which the people, now have to bear.
As far as the merits of the plan of
improvement itself are concerned.we
have no especial criticism to offer.
If the city had money to spare, or if
this work could be done as it ought
to be done, if at all, at the cost of
the owners of abutting property and
of the street railway company, it
;">.' would be a benefit to St. Paul. We
know also that the money which it
is proposed to place at the disposal
of the park commission for this pur
pose would be expended both hon
estly and intelligently. The sole ob
jection to the scheme, and the one
which ought to decide against it
. finally at this time, is the impro
priety, the injustice, the cruelty of
using any public funds for purposes
without the range of immediate ne
cessity. "'.'■'• ' "-:";
What this improvement would cost
■we do not know, and we do not think
that anybody else does. The esti
mates that are presented seem to be
somewhat confused. It was stated
originally that the total expense
would be about $40,000. The park
board, after consideration, has re
duced this .to a little ' over' $27,000.
Of this, sum, the cost of the curbing
is to be assessed upon property ad
joining, and that of improving the
boulevards occupied by the street
railway company is to be borne by
that company. The remainder will
fall upon the city. § The estimate for
a part of the roadway, under charge
of the city engineer, is $2,400. The
improvement of the rest of the road
way and boulevards not assessed
upon the railway company is figured
at $9,700. This would make a total
or $12,100 of expense to be borne by
the city. While submitting this esti
mate of cost in connection with the
report of the park board in on? place,
the Pioneer Press states editorially
that it is proposed that the city shall
pay about $17,000 toward the con
struction of the ornamental drive
way. Here, alone. is a discrepancy
of nearly $5,000. Indeed, most of the
estimates are prefaced with the sav
ing word "about.'.' Just what the
city will have to pay. before the job
is finished nobody can tell; but, if it
be the least amount that is men
tioned, it is too much to add to the
municipal expense roll at a time
when the interest of St. Paul, as a
city, no less than that of its prop
erty holders and individuals, de
mands retrenchment in every direc
This is no time for purchasing ex
pensive ornaments out of any fund.
All these funds are furnished by
the taxpayer, and no shifting of
drafts upon them can relieve him of
the weight. The necessity and the
issue above all others in St. Paul is
that there be no further unnecessary
expenditure of public money; how
ever admirable, on general princi
ples, the purpose may be to which
it would be assigned. Much protest
has been made recently against the
acquisition of new parks. Yet there
are a thousand arguments in favor
of what has been done in that di
rection to one that can be advanced
in favor of making a parkway from
the city to Como, at an indefinite
cost to the people. Unless they take
some active measures to prevent it,
this plan will be carried out. If
it is, they must understand that it
means so much more money to be
raised by taxation, and that they
will have to foot the bills.
There is one phase of the recent
action of Judge Jenkins in making
the appointment of receivers for the
Northern Pacific that is important.
That was his refusal to appoint any
of the persons suggested by the
parties to the litigation; or even any
one on whom they all agreed, to
gether with the reasons assigned for
his action. The history of receiver
ships, he said, demonstrated the in
advisability of appointing receivers
who were connected with contending
"Receivers are officers of the courts
and not the agents of parties inter
ested in the property, and for this
reason they should have but one sin
gle object, to subserve the interests
of the property entrusted to them,
and they should hold no other alle
giance than to the court."
This is the position taken by the
Globe some time ago. This was
the original conception of a receiver
ship. The court is the custodian of
the property, and the receiver is its
executive agent. The court takes
charge of the property because its
management has been incompetent,
and its jurisdiction is exercised in
behalf of the creditors, the owners,
and, in the case of railways, of the
public. In the latter case the public
interests demand the continuance
of the service. It cannot be sus
pended while disputes and conflict
ing interests are being adjudicated
and adjusted. The court then be
comes the responsible head, the
manager of the corporation. The
appointment of a receiver who is to
act for the court, execute its orders,
carry out its policy of management,
is a judicial act, calling for the ex
ercise of the discretion of the court
and its wisest use. It is like the ap
pointment of triers in the selection
of juries. No judge would think of
appointing for such duty the attor
neys of the litigants, or of one of
them. In both cases impartiality is
But courts have lapsed into a com
plaisant way of appointing as re
ceiver the person asked for by the
party presenting the petition. Too
frequently the men who had assisted
to bring about the insolvency caus
ing the receivership are put in
charge of the property. In case of
Insolvent individuals or trading cor
porations, the court is thus often led
to appoint a custodian who is in
collusion with the bankrupt, to se
cure from the creditors a favorable
settlement of their claims. Under
this carelessness, this surrender* of
the judicial functions, there has
grown up in commercial cities a
class of professional receivers with
their partners in the attorneys, who
collude with some rascally debtor to
defraud the creditors for the joint
account of receiver, attorney and
debtor. The petition is presented,
the receiver desired is suggested,
the appointment is made, and the trio
proceed to loot the property.
This could not be done if judges
resumed their proper function and
acted on the line suggested by Judge
Jenkins; feeling that, in making the
appointment, they were appointing
officers of the court instead of agents
of the parties or creditors. In the
majority of cases, it would probably
appear, on investigation by the
judge, that the person recc*mmended
was fit, but this does riot render it
any the less necessary : that the in
quiry be made in all cases, and that
the court act on its own judgment
instead of merely confirming the ap

FUSION IN NEW YORK.
Those organizations in New York
city which have at heart the promo
tion of good government have made
the most serious mistake of their
existence in entering upon an agree-
ment which involves the support of
a portion of the machine Republican
ticket. The future effects of this
are likely to be more serious than
the present. The offices that are to
be filled in New York this fall are
of no great importance. For this
reason,- probably, it has been im
possible to stir public feeling greatly
on the subject. Still the attitude
of the various .anti-Tammany asso
ciations has a bearing on what will!
happen when the mayoralty is once
more the issue. Now the men in
New York city who are fighting
against corruption in office and in
behalf of honest and efficient gov
ernment have two enemies who
must be watched with equal care.
The one is the spoilsmen of Tam
many hall,, and the other is the
spoilsmen of the Republican ma
chine. While they are about equally
unadmirable, still, if there is a choice
between them, the advantage lies
on the side of Tammany.
The Piatt men are absolutely bad.
They have contracted all the vices
of the machine of a party hopelessly
and continuously in the minority in
a great city. They are experts only
in dickers and deals, and are ready
to buy or sell as their interest may
direct. Political association with
these men is a disgrace. The organ
izations which have assumed the
name of "Good Government," and,
more particularly, that which calls
itself State Democracy, might, with
less injury to their reputation, have
concluded an open alliance with
Tammany than to have gone in
with the Republicans under the lead
of Piatt. They have been taken in,
and have given up their indepen
dence and sacrificed their reputation
for honest public spirit, for the tri
fling compensation of a few places,
on the county ticket. This arrange
ment was brought about directly by
conference with Piatt managers."
Out of it no good can possibly come.
We believe in a union of all good
citizens, Irrespective of party, iri
municipal affairs, to secure the en
forcement of the laws and the hon
est administration of municipal gov
ernment But where there are two
organizations as utterly opposed,'
both by history and by character to
such reform, as are the Tammany
association and the Piatt machine,
such men cannot afford to blacken
themselves by an alliance with ei
ther. What these gentlemen have
done, therefore, is to obstruct the
path of reform in New York city in
the future. They have lent their
support, temporarily, to a political
faction that is more repugnant to
honesty in politics than * Tammany
itself. This will make it more dif
ficult, when the next city election
occurs, for all the reform elements
to unite in maintaining the control
that they have established. The
Piatt men are anxious to succeed to
the estate of Tammany, only In or
der that they may administer it by
the old methods for the old purposes.
This is a business in which no honor
able Democrat and no good citizen
of any party affiliation, can afford
to take a hand. - • _ ■

The depths of patriotism were
sounded at the meeting of the Loyal
Legion last night. ;: Enthusiastic and
earenst as the gatherings of this
order always are, few have equaled
and none have surpassed the meet
ing of last night in these virtues.
Patriotism predominated. -". And the
patriotism partook not of the gory
Shirt variety. No sectional issues
Obtruded their time-beaten skulls
to be driven back to the obscurity
to which they belong. One sound,
■wholesome, beautiful lesson of love
for our country was taught. It was
taught in eloquent language, for
great advocates of patriotism were
present to sound its grandeur. Unit
ed States Senator John M. Thurs
ton, of Nebraska; Father James Nu
gent, of Liverpool, England; Bishop
Boyd Vincent, of Ohio; Gen., John
R. Brooke, U. S.A., and Archbishop
Ireland spoke under the inspiration
of the theme that has moulded the
history, of the world. The meeting
will never forgotten' by those
who were so fortunate as to be
present • . ' : . ' : ■
/After supper, which . happily pre
pares the champions for the delecta
ble reminiscences that follow, the
legion departed from the usual cus
tom by adjourning from the ordinary
of the Ryan hotel to the main dining
room, in consequence of the large
attendance. Upon arrival there Com
mander H. A. Castle announced
that Companion Capt. .William H.
Harries, of the Third United States
Veterans Volunteers, would read a
paper relating the achievements of
The Iron Brigade in the first day's
battle of Gettysburg." -
, Capt. Harries told the story of that
memorable first day in • " simple,
straightforward language. He paid
a splendid tribute to those gallant
Wisconsin regiments, who, with the
Twenty-fourth Michigan and the
United States battery, • made such
a glorious fight in the face of over
whelming odds. The paper was hon
ored with the closest and most ap
preciative attention and rewarded
with the heartiest applause. '.-.**"
Brig. Gen. John R. ' Brooke, com
manding the department of Dakota,
to whom a reception was tendered
prior to the supper, was then in
troduced by Commander Castle.
Gen. Brooke' spoke briefly. He ex
pressed his gratitude for the recep
tion tendered to him and assured the
'Loyal Legion that he cherished the
.hope of meeting them upon many
future occasions. Referring to the
battle of Gettysburg, Gen. Brooke
said that many remarkable incidents
of that memorable conflict had never
gone into history.
: Senator Thurston, of Nebraska,
followed with a short, stirring ad
dress. In the introductory remarks
Senator Thurston referred sarcas
tically to the recent obituary notices
of himself that have, appeared in
several newspapers. He paid an el
oquent tribute to the . achievements
of Gen. Brooke. Senator Thurston
dwelt upon the importance of teach
ing patriotism to the rising genera
tion. Said he:
"I believe that the future of our
country depends upon teaching to
our children the true history of our
Bishop Boyd . Vincent, of Ohio, was
called upon by Commander Castle.
Bishop Vincent said that he regretted
that his right to stand with the com
panions of the Loyal Legion was only
that of inheritance. His brother had
been killed at Gettysburg. The bishop
eloquently eulogized the patriotic spir
it that pervaded the asembly, and
paid a warm tribute to the men who
had laid down their lives for their

a gray-haired companion, Capt. Will
iam R. Bourne, formerly a resident
of this city, but now living in Wis-:
consin, arose and asked the bishop if
a certain Sergeant Vincent of an
Ohio regiment, was his brother.
Bishop Vincent said that he was.
"Well, then, I knew him," rejoined
Capt. Bourne. "I was with him at
Gettysburg, and spoke with him short
ly before he was killed, j for a few
minutes after he left me, I saw him
carried to the rear, dead. After

Gift to the Club'
C. J. Whellams has presented to the
Commercial club an ornamental col
umn, or pedestal, made of the various
varieties of Minnesota grains and
grasses. It has been constructed in a
painstaking manner, and will serve
as an effective object lesson to all
who view it. The central column is
topped by a wide-spreading shrub, and
about the bottom are fixed glass re
ceptacles for flowers, fruits or miner
als. Half-way up are placed pedestals
for flowering plants, so that the whole
piece presentsa decidedly artistic show
ing of the principal products of Minne

There is no doubt and no diguise of
the fact that South Carolina wants to
get rid of negro suffrage, and we
fancy if the same conditions as to
population existed in Pennsylvania as
in the Palmetto — that is an over
whelming majority of negro voters—
we would endeavor to do the very same
thing and without much regard to con
stitutional guarantees, if they could be
evaded. Unrestricted negro suffrage
was the great mistake of the recon
struction policy. It was bad for the
negroes and bad for the whites.
