PAUL, TUESDAY, JANUARY, 15, 1873. TIIK Winona Republican thinks it will be very difficult to make the GLOBE a success. The able editor of that affair is a post mas ter. THE GLOBE greets its journalistic brethren with hearty good will and wishes them one and all that measure of success and prosper ity which it expects to attain and deserve for itself. THE Washington correspondents are mov- ing Schurz out of th cabinet again. I is about time for him to approach a piano and play "The Heart Bowed Down," as he did when Greeley was nominated in 1872. QUESTIO NS for the anti-silver capitalists: Why was it necessary to change th contract made by the people to pay the bonds in coin so as to make them payable in go ld aloneV Was not tath the solo reason for demonetizing silver? Was it lawful? Who were benefit ted by the transaction? How much? And ho on. IT is noticeable that the hellish discussion which has attracted so much attention of late, has been chiefly confined to those who have excellent reasons for wishing their theories to be correct. Their idiosyncrasies should be excused, for too much contemplation of warm weather in the near future hath made thorn mad. WHEN the Presidential contest was in doubt and Bill Chandler was down in Flori da aiding in stealing the electoral vote of that State, he was spoken of in tho most re spectful terms by tho republican papers as Hon. Wm. E. Chandler. Now they stylo him Billeo Chandler. When a thief exposes his pals, they always repudiate him. THE GLOBE was probably launched more rapidly than any other first-class journal on record. Th Associated Press frauchioo was not secured until late on Thursday. to Saturday morning th rooms now made so lively by the bu sy GLOBE workers wcro ten antlcss, notwithstanding which a complete newspaper is presented to th public on Tuesday morning. THE GLOBE proposes to continue to advance in a corresponding ra tio, and will never cease while there are jour nalistic worlds remaining to bo conquored. THE unwisdom of the biennial sessions is made painfully apparent at the very thresh- hold of its inauguration. I is customary to divide the Governors message and refer it to appropriate legislative committees. The pres ent messago is so long that it nioro than goes around, and if biennial sessions were fully inaugurated we should have to wait two years before some portions of the message were acted upon. For instance, we might have to be delayed until (880 before we could learn authoritatively from th legislature whether farmers should leave their machinery out of doors, or not THE fact that three prominent Life Insu rance officials have been sent to the peniten tiary in New York, renders the subject of an nual statements a very serious matter. The officers who have to make the affidavits are anxiously investigating the figures furnished by the bookkeepers of their companies, and the showing of life companies hi 1878 bids fair to bring to light a largo shrinkage hi values. If President Case, of the defunct Security life, could retrace his steps ho would probably know that there were but nine hundred dollars in bank when he was called upon to swear that the amount was nine hundred thousand. THE message of the Governor of Ohio made two newspaper columns, and that of fhe Governor of New York four columns. As the Star of Empire floats westward, the western Governors feel the necessity of spreading themselves, and hence tho Govern or of Wisconsin swelled out tofivecolumns, while Minnesota's Executive could not con tain himself within eight. The people of Minnesota were feeling tolerably happy over their big crop and tho retirement of the Rocky Mountain humming bird, but having an eight column message to wrestle with, they aro plunged into the cave of gloom. There is even danger-that a few will Tbe so completely overwhelmed with despond ency that they will not read the message at all. TflE entire absenco of vital principles in the Republican party is sadly manifest by the plaintive wail uttered by the Chicago Tribune in behalf of Mi-. Hayes. Tho office holders are continually being warned by that journal that if they oppose Mr. Hayes he will be compelled, in self defense, to turn them out and appoint Democrats in their places. (This is civil service reform.) The supposed aver sion of his Satanic Majesty to holy water, is as nothing in comparison with a Republican officeholder's horror at the thought of being out in the cold. Hence, though their Presi dent has betrayed and abandoned them, they must cringe, and fawn, and lick the hand that smites them. What a contrast between the Republican party that was, and the Re publican party that is. ''JSS^S&^&HW?8" All BEFORE THE PUBLIC. THE GLOBE makes its morning bow to the public to-day, and, without further ceremony enters upon the fulfillment of its mission. It is now nearly three years since the consolida tion of two papers left St. Paul with but one morning newspaper. However advantageous as a business enterprise to those immediate ly concerned that movement may" have proved, it has been generally and contiihv ously regretted by the public/ Not that either one or both of these papers filled such a niche that their absence did or could create an aching void, but from the fact that there is an irresistible desire to see "both sides" of all questions represented, and any attempt to prevent this creates a feeling of resentment akin to that caused by a personal affront. But for the expense of obtaining a fran chise in the Western Associated Press (with out which no journal worthy the name of ?te?.cspaper can survive) a second morning paper would have long since made its appear ance. Such a franchise having finally been by the editor of THE GLOBE, this journal iu presented to the public. The course which THE GLOBE will pursue, so far as it can be mapped out in advance, was given to the public in a prospectus a few days ago, from which we quote as follows: PRIMARILY, E E GLO BE will be a NEWSPAPER, giving com- Kon-purchased plete ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW S, coupled with liberal special telegrams, correspondence, &c. In short, THE GLO BE will furnish all the news and present an accurate and complete daily map of the doings of this busy world. A able, active, and vigorous corps of editors, re porters, and correspondents has been secured, and THE GLO BE will bo a first-class journal in all its departments. POLITICALLY, THE GLOBE will be DEMOCRATIC. Not in the offensive "organ-grinding" sense, bound to blindly support any man or measure bearing for the time the label of Democracy, but in the broad, liberal meaning of the termthe Dem ocracy which signifies a government by the people, conducted to advance the interests of the whole people. I will labor to make the great crime odious whereby the will of the people was thwarted and a man placed in the Presidential chair who was not elected. I will endeavor to aid in making this fraud so odi ous, that no party will dare to attempt its rep etition, and no man in the future will be wil ling to accept the fruits of such robbery. Honest and economical governmentLocal, State and Nationalwill always be advocated. THE PRESENT PARAMOUNT ISSUE is whether the few shall devour the many. Whether the business depression which now hangs like a pall over the land, carrying woe and desolation everywhere, shall become more fearful, or whether the burden shall be lifted. On this, as upon all questions, the GLO BE will be found battling with no uncertain sound upon the side of the people. I will favor the REMONETIZATION OF SILVER, and the REPEAL OF THE RESUMPTION ACT, as the least that can be done to make amends for the secret crime by which debts payable in coiu were changed to the gold standard alone. I twill favor any and all other measures calculated, to advance the business interests of the country, and tending to improve the condition of the masses. I will be emphatically the PAPER FOR BUSINESS MEJJ. It will give great attention to the Markets and to Commercial matter generally, and will furnish the news of the world in such con densed and attractive form that the busiest men will be able to keep fully posted upon current events. PERSONAL. The establishing of THE GLO BE is a personal business enterprise. N fund has been raised by politicians or others, and not a dollar is asked save in the way of legitimate business. The heavy expenditure incurred before the first copy can be issued, proves that it io on per manent basis from the start. Th publisher believing that there is a field here for such a journal as he has briefly outlined, confidently appeals to the public for support. Democrats of Minnesota, who have so long regretted their inability to obtain a hearing for their princi ples, now have an opportunity to attest their appreciation of this enterprise. Republicans who condemn the current sham Civil Service reform, and the utter betrayal of their party, North and South, by the non-elected President, can testify their approval of THE GLO BE by their subscriptions. It will be tho aim of the editor to make THE GLOBE a model newspaper in every respect, and worthy of the city and State which it in part represents. Political oppo nents will be fairly treated, but unfit men who aspire to public places of trust will be unsparingly exposed. And now with a clean sheetno complica tions nor animositiesTHE GLOBE moves on to win, because it will deserve, success. STATES A1SD HOME-RULE. One of the most significant exhibitions of the affection and attachment of the people to their own State governments and to home rule has been witnessed during the past few weeks in the inauguration of the newly elected Governors. In Virginia, Ohio, Wis consin, Minnesota, and in other States, the people and military, with great pageantry, turned out to swell the pomp of th& cere monies. In Wisconsin military companies with bands attended by a large con course of citizens accompanied Gov ernor Smith from Milwaukee to Madison, and in Virginia the First Virginia Reginent es corted Gov. Haliday to the capitol. In Ohio the ceremonies of inauguration were no less imposing. This looks somewhat like a re vival of State affection and pride. At any rate nothing like it has been seen in this country in many years, and we may after all learn that the attachment of the people to tho States still survives, and so long as it does survive there can be no danger of Cre sar. -'-j^.-j THE CIVIL SERVICE HERESY. It was sometime during the second term of the reign of Ulysses I. that the political heresy of civil service reform, as proclaimed by the republican party, was first heard of. We are not aware, that the number of office holders in the United States has ever been accurately ascertained. When Grant ascended the throne he was surrounded by a multitude of office seekers, including a regi ment of his own family. The sixty or eighty thousand federal offices, at the close of his term, wore filled, with very few exceptions, by Republicans. During his term tho disclosures of rascality, corruption fraud, robbery of all kinds and grades, aro still fresh in the memory of the people. The public service was never more rotten. It was the outgrowth, of Congressional corrup tion. It was filled, as a general rule, by the most ignorant, corrupt set of political vaga bonds and shysters that ever fastened them selves upon any government. Of course there were exceptions. But the great body of the office-holders, from the highest to the lowest, had obtained their positions through political bargains and sales, sometimes money considerations, sometimes worse, if possible. and and This was true when Hayes came into office. this army must be continued in office for ever. Kotation in office is a cardinal doc trine of republican government. If the offices had been filled on the ground of merit alone, at first, and equapy distributed among the people without reference to poli tics, we could then appreciate this civil ser vice reform business, perhaps, but as the con trary is true, and as we will have a Demo- craticPresident in 1881, we prefer to have another deal and another set than the oldine, barnacles of the last fifteen years, and after we have obtained a new deal, and filled all the offices with honest, competent, sound Democrats, why then we may take "civil service reform" under consideration. A UNITED DEMOCRATIC PARTY. The existence of an opposition is as essen tial in a free country as minorities and majorities, or checks and balances to pro duce a political equilibrium between them, or a Constitution to protect the rights of alL The people of the United States have lived for nearly fifteen years under the most absolute despotism the world ever saw. It has been apparently the despotism of a majority. It has been far worseit has been that of a minority of the people, who succeeded to power by seizing corruptly a numerical majority of the electoral vote. The people of the United States have always been and are to-day Democratic. With one exception a majority of the popular vote has been Democratic during all these long, dark weary years of oppression and fraud. It is not proposed now to enter on theMass., endless catalogue of Republican frauds and conspiracies to destroy civil liberty, but we challenge history to show, under the worst and most devilish government on earth, an example where more omnipotent efforts were made to crush out every semblance of opposition. To be a Democrat was to be a traitor. The Senate of the United States, once the council chamber of enthroned States, became a mere political oligarchy, a mere machine to register the edicts of the Executive, and to divide with him the patron age. The House of Representatives, the immediate agents of the people, banded to gether for plunder and robbery. No Democrat was allowed to hold office or a voice in the Government. To perpetuate this tyranny and to pave the way for an end less lease of power, a conspiracy, far worse than that of Cataline, was plotted, to subsi dize the newspapers of the country. Editors were appointed Postmasters, and assistant editors and newspaper stockholders, Treasury and Revenue Agents. The lines of intel ligence were monopolized and all pos sible means used to smother and throttle not only the will but the voice of the people. The conspiracy has failed. The chains are broken. They will soon be removed. To remove them there is need of a united county, State and National Democracy. The country must be taught trust and faith, and the Democratic party must become thor oughly organized and united. This is now the mission of every honest Democrat. This is the mission of the DAILY GLOBE. TURNING STATE'S EVIDENCE. THE GLOBE publishes this morning the somewhat remarkable manifesto recently issued by Bill Chandler of New Hampshire. We publish this not as news, but as history, though in this locality it might be reasonable to claim it as news, for the bigotry of the partisan papers has prevented the previous appearance of the document in Minnesota. This document has a double value in that it is the confession of one of the rascals who stole the Presidency, and at the same time expresses the views of the Blaine-Coukling element of the Republican party. For, dis guise it as the friends of Mr. Hayes may attempt, the conflict with his own party has already commenced, and the pronunciamento of this minor personage, sounds the key note of tho battle which others more formid able than he, propose to wage. The confession is the portion of the docu ment that is now of the most interest. Was there ever a more unblushing admission of a fraud than the following paragraph? I Louisiana, however, there had been thrown into the ballot-boxes over 7,000 more votes for the Tilden than forth Hayes elect ors, and to make Hayes President it became necessary for the returning board, acting under peculiar local laws, to throw out more thau 7,000 Tilden votes on account of alleged mur der, riot, and intimidation, preventing a fair and free election to certain parishes. per form this extraordinary, even if justifiable, work, i the face of an armed and infuriated democracy, required men of undauuted cour age and such courage the returning board possessed. The case is here stated in a nut shell. It was necessary to throw out seven thousand votes, and it was also necessary to secure a pretext for such whole sale disfranchisement. No wonder that he says it required men of undaunted courage, and no wonder that Chandler and other Re publicans who were parties to the crime are indignant over the Presidential policy which dethroned the men who had stolen the Exec utive chair. While, so far as those rascals are con cerned, it is a just retribution, the crime was one which the American people never can and never ought to forgive or forget. It was an offence against free government which should and will consign the guilty men and party to everlasting disgrace and oblivion. The First Honors for White Bear. To the Editor of the GLOBE. WHITE BEAB, Jan. 12.Enclosed find list of subscribers for the DAILY CLOSE to be sent to this place.

Yours, truly, DANIEL GETTY. The Drag Net Which the Republicans Fear. Under the Wood investigation resolution the old Syndicate is likely to be thoronghly examined. The Glover Committee still has possession of the old cipher telegram which was captured in that famous bundle of tele grams, and will undertake to ravel the riddle of the sphinx which they contain. It is claimed that the dispatches will show that Cattell and other agents of the Syndicate at London demanded that the Secretary of the Treasury should give a premium to retain immense sums of money in London that they might lose them, and draw-interest from the banks in which they were deposited that large sums of interest were collected, and that only $5,000 were ever paid the Treasu ry, and that these telegrams will prove that story true. ,A On, the Wane.

I is his duty to keep the ex-Queen Isabella from going to Paris to attend the mar riage of her son, Alphonso, but the horrid old woman insists that she will go. Whether there is or not a hell for the wicked, after death, is a subject of absorbing interest at Chicago, which drew large congregations to the dozen or more churches of that city, in which the question was discussed Sunday. Bonner and Vandcrbilt are rivals in buying high priced horses. Bonner paid $9,500 for May Bird, whereupon Vanderbilt gave $10,000 for Little Fred, and now Bonner has paid $10,- 000 for Maud Macey, a six-year-old Kentucky trotting mare, with a five-year-old record of 2:27%. Bishop Potter replies to recent attacks upon Dr. Seymour, Bishop elect of the Diocese of Springfield, 111., and says of the Reverend Doc tor.

In 1837 the Fort Dearborn reservation was sold.

The New York Sun warns New York and other eastern cities that they are in danger of losing the South American trade, by its being turned to New Orleans, and presents statistics which show that the United States exported to South America $60,000,000 worth of goods in 1876, and imported from there $163,000,000 worth. That is a trade worth striving for, and it can be greatly increased. MUSICAI/.

Now if this "SELECT" refers to musical skill and superiority of voices, we wish a hearty "God speed" to the enterprise but if that "select" has reference to social station only, we think that the word carries the seed of speedy de cay along with it. In our own experience we have seen dozens of such societies spring ing up like mushrooms and wither away no body knew when. But all agreed to one main cause: too much "select." As for the leadership of such an organization, it re quires a little more than the handling of Greek fire and Roman candles. It needs a thorough musical knowledge, combined with a conciliatory manner, ready at any time to sacrifice the interest of self or friends to the cause of music. We throw out these suggestions by Way of bringing our mite to the successful issue of the enterprise, and we are sure that a warmer friend it cannot have than the writer of these lines. English Opera has been and gone. Thou sands of people have enjoyed the lively French strainsof the Chimes of Normandy, the more serious ones of the Summer Night's Dream, or the ballad style of the Bohemian Girl. If there is nothing else proved by the immense success of the Hess opera troupe, we know at least that St. Paul is ready to encourage any enterprise honest in purpose and liberal in style. We shall always be glad to welcome the return of this troupe, with its magnificent leader, its petite prima donna, its rolicking bass and its sympathetic tenor. The St. Paul Musical Society will have one of their pleasant concerts on the 22d of this month. This society has always been the pet of the community, and like all pets, has been sadly spoiled. It hasbefore been the fashion heretofore to wink at the shortcomings of the society, to put a thick coat of whitewash over all itsaudience sins of omission and commission.

Four hundred and fifty members of the the Fireman's Life Association, during two years, the first day of January, have paid losses aggregating $2,211. Grand Chancellor Knights of Pythias, Dr. A. A. Ames, will go to Faribault on Wednes day next, to institute a new lodge of the order in that city. Judging by the results of the perfume the use of the Iowa soft coal in the Milwaukee depot is not an entire success. The perfume reminds one of the efforts of a discouraged sewer. A little daughter of John Monahan, resid ing on South Eighth street, fell down stairs yesterday and was injured seriously, but not fatally. Willie Young, aged 15, was sent to the Re form School, and" John' Hurdershott, aged I \he 1*. given 30 oav, in SaU Cooley for stealing skates from the Skat ing Rink. The case of the State vs. Stevens drags its slow length along at the District Court. It is rather an expensive luxury to the county to undertake to establish the character of citizen Edwards. The ice-packers are cutting away, but find the julip-material a little attenuated yet for good solid work. It would be finer, wouldn't it, if our only sur9 crop (the ice crop) should fail us this year?

The essay on the Free-thinker of yester day and the Free-thinker of to-day, deliv ered before the Liberal League, by W. C.

A new Agricultural Association, with Col. Treasurer, and gentle Charley Clark as Sec retary, has been organized in this city, and purposes holding a State exposition on the 2d, 3d, 4th, 5th and 6th of September next.

The limits as proposed by the pending ordinance are as follows for thecreetly West Division: Commencing at a point on the Mississippi river three hundred and thirty feet above the northwest line of Hennepin avenue thence on a line parallel with Hennepin avenue to River street thence along River street to Second ave nue north thence along Second avenue north to the central alley running through blocks ten (10) and nine (9), in Minneapolis (as platted) thence along said alley to Fourth avenue north thence along Fourth avenue north to Third street thence along Third street to Firat ave nue north thence along First avenue north to Sixth Btreet thence along Sixth street to First avenue south thence along First avenue south to Fourth street thence along Fourth street to Tenth avenue soutb thence along Tenth avenue south to the Misssissippi river thence along said river to the place of begin ning. For the East Division they area follows: Commencing on the easterly shore of the east channel of the Mississippi river where the same would be intersected by the center line of Fust avenue northeast-if extended to said shore thence down the shore of said river to a point where saitt shore would be intersected by the central line of Bank street if the same were extended thereto thence easterly and along such extension and along the center iine of Bank Btreet in a right line to Third street or University avenue thence northerly along the center line of said University avenue to First avenue northeast thence along the center line of First avenue northeast to the point of be ginning. The changes made are very important and generally speaking very satisfactory to a ma jority of the public. There will probably be an effort to amend in Borne slig ht particu lars, but if the council conclude to establish the limits pretty near as the ordinance reads, there will be particular damage to any one, and the average business man will sleep far more comfortablv.

Yesterday about half-past ten o'clock "a solitary horseman" visited the various engine houses in the central part of the city, and notified them in a bewilderingly excited manner that there was afire raging on West ern Avenue, near the crossing of the St. Paul & Pacific railway. This "solitary horseman" was from the country, and utterly ignorant of the fact that there was a fire alarm box within two squares of the fire. Obeying the summons, however, Hook & Ladder No. 1, and two or three hose com panies arrived at M. Coffin's grocery store, where the fire was burning, in time to assist in extinguishing it, after about $50 worth of damage had been done. The fire originated in the second story, from a crack in a cook ing stove, which deposited a few live coal-s on the pine floor. Insured with Gale & Co. for Turner's Exhibition.

That portion of Gov Pillsbury's message relating to the swindli ng railroad bonds is a direct and intentional insult to every voter in Minnesota who cast hiss, ballot against the payment of th swindle, and Mr Pusey should be condemned for putting it in. We. who voted against the steal, are quietly rele gated to one of two classes, fools or scoun drels. Now, as a voter who was in Minneso ta at the time the bonds were issued, as one who has tried hard to get at the exact equities of the case, I protest against being crowded into either of the above classes. I distinctly remember, prior to the last general election, how the leading politicians of both the great parties plead and begged that the swindling bon ds be not brought in to the campaign as a disturbing element. But Mr Banning, with rare honesty and in dependence, declined to endorse the bargain, and daied to speak the truth wherever he ad dressed audiences. Governor Pillsbury dis he ld his tongue on the subject until after election, and then takes occasion, in his first public utterance, to brand his opponents on this question as either idiots or rascals. If I knew nothing about the merits or de merits of the question itself, and was a stranger to every fact in its history except the means of wholesale bribery and corrup tion used always to force its settlement, I should oppose it simply on that ground. A measure which needs a corruption fund to secure its passage by a vote of the people, must either inherently bad. or else th people must be set down as innately dishonest. I prefer to consider the first proposition as true, and denounce the bond proposition voted on last June as dishonesta trick of designing men, subsidized by the bondhold ers to consummate a transparent fraud and swindle. Gov. Pillsbury should know that on the stump and elsewhere, pending the vote the proposition, he was accused of being an interested party, of having a hand in th pool. This I do not assert, because I do not know it to be true but the ready and valuable maim er in which the Pioneer Press rushes to his defense as "an honest man" would lend color to the suspicions of those who did accuse him of being an interested party in the passage of the fraudulent measure for the payment of fraudulent debt. At any rate, Gov Pillsbury and Mr. Pusey should be more cautious how they denounce other people as knaves or fools. RIGHT, Minneapolis, Jan ltth, 1878 Eternal Punishment.
