NOT SO FAST.
White Mr. McKinley preserves the
Iron-clad silence with which he
has shut himself, Republican news
papers all over the country are en
deavoring to palliate the unpleasant
impression so created by iterating and
reiterating the statement that their
party has declared overwhelmingly
for "sound money." Perhaps it has,
but every party in the country 1?
ready and certain to declare for what
its delegates wy&icall "sound money."
Mr. Teller and Mr. "Vest and Mr. Stew
art all claim as ardently to represent
the cause of "sound money" as Mr.
Carlisle or Mr. Sherman. All the plat
forms wfhich are made this year,
gold standard, silver standard or
straddle, will proclaim to the people
with abounding emphasis that In their
terms alone will be found ths realiza
tion of "sound money." Jt i 3 fair,
therefore, to analyze the claim made
by Republican leaders and editors that
the money question has already been
settled in the election of delegates to
St. Louis, and to see what foundation
they find there fer it.
The only statistics which they pre
sent consist of a table showing that
the free silver vote amounts to eighty
four, and the non-committal or doubt
xul vote to ninety-two. The votes
for "sound money" foot up 740.
Now, this so-called sound money
table simply includes the delegates
from all those states which have failed
to instruct their representatives to vote
for the free coinage of silver. While
there are among the delegates many
who are directed, like those of New
iYork, to declare for the present gold
standard, there are also many, like
those from Ohio, who stand on a plat
form that is neither fish, flesh nor fowl.
To talk about the Ohio convention,
or that of Illinois either, for that mat
ter, as representing sound money sen
timent is supremely ridiculous. To
know where the Republican party
6lands on the financial question we
■would have to have a further classifi
cation of these 740 votes, showing how
many of them are pledged outright
for the maintenance of the present
standard, and how many are in favor
of some kind of financial com
promise in the platform that would
tend to hold the real sound
money vote, without excluding the
friends of free sliver. When this
analysis shall be made we are of the
opinion that it will be found that if
the straddlers are not in an actual
majority, there are at least enough of
them, when combined with the out
right free coinage men and the un
committed delegates, to constitute a
clear majority of the whole conven
It will not work to attempt to throw
dubt in the eyes of the country in the
fashion to which the Republican sense
of party insecurity has compelled it
to resort. The truth is that all the
probabilities at present are in favor
of a failure to declare at St.
Louis for either the gold or the
silver standard. It is more than
likely that the performance of
189? or something similar to it, will
be repeated, and that the Republican
party will stand this year, as then,
for the perpetuation of distrust, the
continuance of financial agitation, and
another four years' period of public
doubt and private misfortune, by an
attempt to compromise between the
two factions. It is not the outright
advocates of unlimited and uncondi
tional free coinage whom the Repub
■ licans have to fear, It is the temporiz
ers and compromisers, who, at this
writing, appear to be in the majority.
It is because they do seem to be in
the majority that Mr. McKinley re
fuses to declare himself, waiting tc see
in which direction the convention will
jump, so that he may line his opinions
iup accordingly. In such a situation
the Republican claim that the party
has already declared for "sound
money" is utterly without foundation
THE 9KW ADMINISTRATION.
The new municipal administration
was formally Inaugurated yesterday,
and started out in life with an abun
dant of good resolves and fair prom
ises, which we hope will come to their
full fruition. The inaugural of Mayor
Doran, which is longer than cus
tomary, follows what we have always
regarded as an unfortunate and un
necessary precedent set by different
presidents of the United States in their
messages, referring to and comment
ing upon the condition and needs of all
the several departments within their
supervision, even although they might
have no specific criticisms or recom
mendations to make. So the message
of Mayor Doran deals with a large
variety of topics, Including roads,
bridges, sidewalks, lighting, schools,
public library, health, fire and water
departments, and others where he has
nothing to say except to recapitulate
the actually existing state of things,
and to commend the .'interests in ques
tion to the consideration of the 'com
mon--council. All this could have been
done in bulk in a few linos, to the
gain of conciseness and force.
The message itself is a tribute to
the excellent work accomplished by
the Democratic administration, to
which this is a successor. Mr. Doran
refers in appropriate terms to the large
reduction made in our city debt, and
to the excellence ©f our administra
tion as witnessed by the examination
of the retrenchment committee. In
a few particulars, however, he ven
tures criticisms wliich rest upon mis
information or misunderstanding of
the situation In his own mind. His
strictures upon the legal department
are petty and ill-advised, while the
statement that "political influence,
rather than personal fitness, has,
as a rule, been the test applied to
applicants for positions" in the police
department, is an unwarranted reflec
tion upon a force whose efficiency and
close application to duty are not open
to question. This is decidedly the most
regrettable portion of the new mayor's
utterances; since it indicates clearly, in
connection with what follows, a pur
pose on the part of the new adminis
tration to do precisely that with which
it charges its predecessors; namely, re
construct the police force, to a large
extent, on the basis of political influ
ence and political affiliations.
Aside from this, the policy Indicated
by the new mayor is one which, if fol
lowed conscientiously and in sincerity,
as we axe prepared to believe that
Mr. Doran Intends, will commend
itself to our citizens in general. Re
trenchment and economy in all de
partments; the expenditure of suffi
cient money to make our school ac
commodations adequate; to put school
buildings in good sanitary condition,
and to broaden the educational system
at the base at the expense, if neces
sary, of the apex; the collection of
liquor licenses when they become due
and the enforcement of the statutes re
garding the traffic; together with a
strict prohibition of wine rooms, gam
bling and the sale of liquor to minors,
are in harmony with a policy which
we are convinced Is approved by the
great body of citizens without any re
gard whatever to, party. (
The Republican administration is now
fairly in charge of the affairs of St.
Paul. We believe tlwrt Mr. Derail, as
its head, intends to do his duty by the
people consistently and conscientiously.
He has an opportunity, by discarding
the interested advice of scheming pol
iticians and sinking the partisan in
the citizen, to achieve such a reputa
tion in St. Paul as can never come to
him again in any station. He wiH re
ceive from us a fair criticism, with
praise and blame distributed accord
ing to his fidelity to those standards
of public duty which are above party
expediency and belong solely to good
citizenship. Such misgivings aa- we
have had, and still retain, rose not
from anything personal to the new
mayor's character or motives, but from
a recognition of certain influences that
were active in the late . Republican
campaign. Will Mr. Doran rise above
them? Upon the answer to that ques
tion depends much for him and much
for the people of St. Paul.
THE UNSPEAKABLE SENATE.
The senate continues to justify the
judgment of its uselessness by adding
proofs of its capacity for mischievous
ness, if, indeed, that is not crediting it
with too much intelligence; for It takes
wit to be roguish. Stupidity would be
a more accurate term. More likely,
though, its actions are predicated on a
variety of motives. Partisanry that
would inflict injury rather than pro
mote measures that might reflect cred
it on an administration opposed by it;
a fatuous stolidity of opinion on the
financial question; factional spite of
sundry Democratic senators against an
administration refusing assent to their
ideas of what is due to senatorial cour
tesy, all these may be the motives be
hind the acts that invite universal cen
What is the simple business situa
tion? Revenues less than outgo. No
matter what the cause, that is the
fact. Thirty millions short of expenses
for this fiscal year. What, under such
circumstances, would the manager, the
board of directors, of any industrial
concern do? If they set their business
gait at the senatorial pace they would
largely increase expenditures and re
fuse to adopt any measures for increase
of revenue. If they did, though, they
are not so stupid as not to know that
they would speedily drive their estab
lishment into the bankruptcy court, and
a receiver would soon sit in their
places. On the contrary, the first in
quiry would be where can expenses be
cut down, and, instead of enlarging
outgo, there would be a shortening of
sail. Sales v/ould be crowded and col
lections pushed, enlarging revenue.
Thus ordinary business men would
THE SAINT PAUI, GLOBE: WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 189tj.
meet the situation in which the Unite.:
States finds itself.
What has congress done? The house
set the pace by sending over to the
senate appropriation bills that exceed
those of any preceding first session of
any prior congress. They not only
spend present revenues, but mortgage
future ones by making continuing ap
propriations that future congresses
must provide for or violate the obliga
tions of contracts. Then -these sen
ators, this body whom it would not
do to leave to the common people to se
lect, but which must be chosen by the
wise men of the states, proceeds to en
large the spending in every possible
way. Nowhere any reduction; every
where increase. As if ordinary and
present matters were insufficient to
gratify their passion for spending, they
dig into the graves of buried claims
and resurrect their skeletons and drape
them' with greenbacks. The old French
spoliation claims, passing their cen
tenary, decrepit, battered in their sieg
es of fifty congresses, like the claim
of Jarndyce vs. Jarndyce, bequeathed
from one generation to another, are
treated to an infusion of the senatorial
elixir, and plumped, as frisky as in
their teens, Into the general deficiency
bill. Then a lot of old civil war claims
for property taken or damaged by our
t-roops, made by people whose loyalty
found no expression in service of the
Union; rejected repeatedly, finally
wormed through the court of claims,
are dumped into the same omnibus bi'l.
Suppose they were loyal, is the govern
ment to compensate all for sacrifice
made? Did the young men who broke
their life careers to give their best
years to the country make no sacri
fices? But anything goes when our
modern senators get down to what they
consider business, and no claim is too
stale or too groundless to be beyond
their complacent aid.
A HAKMOXHUS CONVENTION.
If all Democratic conventions were
to be conducted according to the policy
followed yesterday in Ramsey county
there would be a good deal more har
mony and a much better chance of
success for the party generally than
there has been for some time past.
Differences of opinion exist among the
members of the party in this county
as elsewhere. Those differences relate
both to the fact of personal leadership
and to the position which the party
should assume upon questions of pub
lic policy. Yet they do not extend to
the point of a party rupture, or to
ostracise from participation in the
party's councils any man who has a
rightful claim to the name of Demo
crat. All those differences were fought
out in an open, manly and good-natured
fashion at the primaries and In the
convention, and the party has every
reason to be thoroughly satisfied with
the result. There were no contests and
no serious differences of opinion in
the convention itself. It represented
all elements of the Democratic party,
and the delegation which was selected
by wards to speak for Ramsey county
in the state convention is a strong and
Best of all, perhaps, is the platform,
which is a model of conciseness and
positiveness. It contains only two short
planks, one of which indorses the ad
ministration of President Cleveland,
and the other declares uncompromis
ing opposition to the free coinage of
silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. With
out any other Instructions than these
the representatives of Ramsey county
Democracy go to the state conven
tion to do their best for the adoption
of a right party policy, and for our
contribution to party success. We can
express no better hope than that the
state convention may be as united' In
policy and as successful In results aa
yesterday's gathering in Market hall.
ME AND LINCOLN.
Although the country breathes more
freely, its suspense is not over yet.
It is stijl possible that Mr. Towne—
young Mr. Towne, of Duluth—-may bolt
the action of the Republican conven
tion. He has not quite made up his
mind yet, apparently. He says that
Lincoln used to advise against cross
ing a stn^am before you came to it,
and that this is one occasion on which
Lincoln knew as much as he does. We
are inclined to think that the affable
Mr. Towne has mixed his s*tories up
a little; for, while Old Abe had very
positive notions about swapping horses
while crossing a stream, he was not a
man who was ever afraid to allow
his convictions to be known. Per
haps, however, it is a modest unwilling
ness to rush in where the Republican
candidate fears to tread that re
strains the Sixth district representa
tive. However it may be, Mr. Towne
holds in abeyance his opinion, and re
serves the right to do dreadful things
in the future. Not until the national
convention has spoken will he declare
himself, and then he will tell the
country exactly what he is going to
do. It does not seem to us quite fair
that the business interests of so many
millions of people should be left in
anxious uncertainty for several weeks
yet, when all could be relieved if Mr.
Towne would only announce himself.
As matters stand, however, we suppose
that there is nothing to be done but to
wait until he thinks that it would be
a proper time for him and Lincoln to

first vice president, Mrs. George Thompson;
second vice president, Mrs. A. J. Stone; sec
retary, Miss Helen M. Brack; treasurer,' Mrs.
D. F. Colville.
The annual report stated that the associa
tion would start the coming year with a bal
ance in the treasury.
The association now numbers fifty-three
members, both active and associate. There
have been gifts of scholarships or twenty-flve
from seven persons; four from the Monday
Art and History class, one from Mrs. D. A.
Monfort, one from ex-Gov. William R. Mer
riam, and one from Dr. Schiffman.
The total number of students enrolled was
97; the highest attendance during any one
month was S3; the lowest 21; with an average
of 48. Under the instruction of Mr. Har
wood and Mrs. Barber great progress has
been made, as is shown by the fact that sev

A social and parlor recital was given to*
th« benefit of Bates Avenue church, at the
charming homa of Mrsf D, R. Hevener, yes
terday afternoon. Afoui|l2O ladies from
Bates Avenua and East Presbyterian church
es were present. A short programme of
music and recitations was given. Master Ted
Simpson and Master Jason Walte giving
mandolin and piano selections. The latter
has a very delicate touch. Two pupils of
Miss Ford's, Miss Pal|lson and Miss Greg
ory, recited, and Mrs. Allen Krieger sang
a selection well suited to her pleasing voice.
Miss Katherine Watkins. the first soprano
at the cathedral, also sang. Master Walta
accompanied both ladies and succeeded ad
mirably. He is the pupil of Prof. Brown, of
this city. Da<nty refreshment was served
on the completion of the programme, and a
social time enjoyed by all.
A students' recital was given by the young
er pupita of Miss AspinwaU yesterday after
noon at St. Catherine's school. The music,
which constituted all but two numbers of
the programme, was enjoyable, considering
the ages of the pupils. Miss AspinwaU Is
evidently a thorough as well as artistic in
structor. The "Festival March," from Tann
hauser, given by Greve Oppenhelm, was
truly fine. He has talent amounting almost
to genius. The selections were in almost
every case classical—a pleasing exception to
many school affairs. The reading by Miss
Pearl Rosser was well rendered. The piece
is pathetic, and Miss Rosser shows a marked
aptitude for this phase of the work.
Miss Georgia Mary Bruvler and Arthur
T. Jernegan were married yesterday after
noon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. L. V.
Bauvier, East Tenth street,, by Rev. Father

MR. BILIiITT TALKS.
He I* Annoyed by Recent Dnluih Re
John J. Bullitt Jr., of Duluth, brother-in
law and counsel to "Miss Kathryn Western,"
who claims to be the widow of Rich A. Gray,
the Duluth millionaire, and who has asked
the courts to allow her her share of the
estate, arrived in St. Paul last evening, and
is at the Metropolitan hotel. When seen last
night Mr. Bullet said.
"Heretofore I have positively refused to say
a word about this matter, further than to
assert that my sister-in-law's claim is founded
In right. That is to say, that she is the widow
of Rich A. Gray. I now positively assert
that Kathryn Western, as she is termed in
the libelous newspaper sensation sent out
from Duluth, was legally married to Rich A.
Gray in Hudson, Wis., in November, 1890.
And I am prepared to prove that assertion be
fore the probate court on the 9th day of _ this
"What of the statement that 'Mr. Rich and
Miss Western" were 'nat known to have met
often in Duluth?' "
"It Is a lie; an absolute and unqualified lie,
like the other statements in that newspeper
"I will say now what I have never stated
before," continued Mr. Bullitt. "There were
sufficient reasons why the marriage was kept
secret. That is all there Is to it. All I want
to do is to find out the name of the malignant
scoundrel who inspired that newspaper pub
lication. I don't blame any of the newspapers,
but I am after the wretch who has told these
lies, and when I find him out, as I will in the
course of three days, he will think the wrath
of God has struck him!"
"Hare you any idea who he is?"
"It Is undoubtedly one of the relatives of
the deceased, who hopes to get a slice of the
half-million, If he can, but he will not, for
Mrs. Kathryn Gray is the woman to whom
all the Gray estate belongs."
"How can that b« unlets there Is a will?"
Mr. Bullett glanced sharply at the reporter
and then answered: "Never mind about that.
That will appear later. There are some sur
prises In store. I decline to answer your
questions any further."
Mr. Bullitt says that the claimants of the
Gray estate are three brothers of the de
ceased, Joshua, William A. and a brother
whose initials he doesn't know, and two nieces,
who are the daughters of a deceased sister,
Mrs. Roger C. Munger. They are Mrs. Dwight
Woodbridge, of Minneapolis, and Mrs. W. B.
Silvey, of Duluth.
Dwight Woodbridge, whose wife is one of
the heirs referred to, is connected with the
Minneapolis Journal In an editorial capacity.

WASHINGTON. June 2.—The house devoted
its-elf tcday to passing the river and harbor

Ing by a vote of 162 to 39. John J. Walsh, tha
Democratic member from the Eighth New
Ycrk district, whose place will be filled by
John Murray Mitchell (Rep.). Both of these ,
actions were foregone conclusions, so that
they excited comparatively little interest, al
frcugh there was a full houfee to vote on th«
•rivet- end harbor bill. It was passed by 2J<)
to 60, many more votes thun the two-thirds
necessary to overrule a veto, and it wa.;
ed without debate, although Mr. Dot. kery
(Me.) protested vehemently that debate had
been promised. Thirty-nine Dtinoc.rj.ln vot<«!
to override the presidential objections, and
twenty-six Republicans stood by Cleveland.

over the president's veto, was made by Chalr
iran Hooker, who moved the passage of the
bill, 'saying that the committee was of the
opinion that the president's message corertd
every possible objection to the bill, ami ih.it
the report answered all objections. "Many
members have askod me for time to drbato thii
matter," he said, "and to yield to their re
quests would take much time. Without ex
pressing any opinion on the matter aa to
whether there should be debate, anil to left
the opinion of the house on the ques'i>n
whether debute is necessary, I will ilemuiiJ
the previous question."
Instantly Mr. Doi-kery was on his feet, de
manding recognition, but the sijx'aker told
him that debate was not tn order. Members
were shouting "Vote, vote," but tl\- ■ '
Mr. Dockery pierced the uproar, Hlmutlng
"The gentleman agreed with me yostcrduy to
have debate on this bill. This Is unfair, un
just and unmanly."
The house demanded th? previous question —
178 to 60, by a rising vote, and only 4>5 rose to
sustain tho request for yeas and nay a.
"Under tho rules, the vote on the passage
of the bill must be taken by yeaa and nays,"
the speaker announced.
"Is there no rule by whick we can have de
bate?" asked Mr. Dockery.
"Xot If the house orders the contrary." said
Speaker Reed, "and thu house ha» so ordered
—" "To stifle debate," chimed In Mr. Dingley.
The bill was passed by a vote of 2:>rt to '!<•. a
