Now that St. Paul ha8 secured the oromise
of Mr. Hayes' attendance at the State fair,
it is mmored that Minneapolis is endeavoring
to induce Dennis Kearney to attend the ex

IT is the opinion at Constantinople that
the Bosnian insurrection cannot last long.
The same opinion has prevailed at St. Paul
for a long time, but, then, the Turks aie
habitually slow in reaching conclusions.
HE Indian war in the West is practically
over, only a few roving bands of redskins
being on the war path. Gen. Howard can
now safely emerge from his retreat in the

paign against the painted braves.
THE Milwaukee Sentinel is fearful lest the
Wisconsin Democrats and Greenbackers
shall pool their issues in the approaching
fight. If tbey should do so there would be
BO little left of the Republican party that a
shrewd detective with a search warrant
would hardly be able to discover it.
CHABLEY FOSTEB assures us that the con
tributions to the Republican corruption
fund as as liberal as ever before, but it is
noticeable that the committee i3 not making
as big a spread as heretofore, and is hiring
no expensive speakers to canvass either
Ohio or Indiana. All the stumping in those
States is to bo done by the candidates them
selves. This state of facts does not indicate
a plethoric purse.
WITH the exception of four who robbed
the train down in Kansas on Tuesday, there
is not a single train robber above ground or
outside of the walls of the Stillwater peni
tentiary to-day. They have all been hunted
down and shot like wild beasts as they de
served. Notwithstanding their fate, how
ever, there still appear to be men foolhardy
enough to take the hazard of robbing peo
ple on the rail.
THE witness Roberts, who testified befoie
the Potter committee on Tuesday, confirrrs
in all essential particulars the testimony of
Major Burke as to the bargain entered into
between Hayes and the Democrats of Louis
iana by which he was to obtain the Presi
dency by fraud, and they to obtain their
rights in the State government. The web is
slowly enveloping Hayes in an inextricable
mesh of fraud.
THE correspondent of the GLOBE at St,
Peter finds the opinion prevailing there that
the Senatorial investigating committee have
gone to the insane asylum provided with a
pail of whitewash and plenty of brashes, and
will proceed to kalsomine the institution and
its managers in an artistic manner. If this
shall prove to be the case it were better for
them that a mill-stone had been tied about
their necks and that they had been drowned
in the depths of the Mississippi river.
HEBE is a dispatch from London:
Nubar Pasha, summoned by the Khedive to
assist in carrying out reforms of administra
tion in Egypt, Bailed for Alexandria, bearing
important prospects of reforms, sanctioned by
England and France.
The significance of the dispatch is in the
words "sanctioned by England and France."
They Bhow that our prediction that these
two nations are bound to be the controlling
powers in affairs at the East was fully war
ranted by the facts. No measures of govern
ment not "sanctioned by England and
France" can be instituted. Tbey are literally
the cocks of the walk.
B. HISOOCK, of the Potter committee, is
evident! fearful that some evidence will be
produced tending to implicate Mr. Hayes
directly with the forgeries and perjuries to
which he owes his office, and is busy ob
jecting to the introduction of testimony hav
ing such a tendency. -His efforts will be
or ought to beunavailing. If there isany
such evidence in existence the people have a
right to hear it. Already convinced of the
entire lack of principle of the de facto exe
utive, the public have a right to know pre
cisely how far his greed for office has car
ried himhow far he compromised his
monhood for his own official aggrandize
ment. Let as get at the bottom facts.
TOO CAN WIS IF YOU WILL.
If all the elements of opposition to the
Republican party will unite, Bill Washburn
can be defeated. If a "rock rooted," jack-
ass buttressed campaign is made, he will
be elected. It is all very well to bloviate
about ''time-honored principles," but as a
matter of practical utility it is a good deal
better to make a campaign on something a
little more modern. The questions at issue
are whether the country will endorse the
stealing of the Presidency, the legislation
which makes the rich richer and the poor
poorer, the frauds and corruptions which
permeate every branch of the govern-
ment, the financial policy which stag-
nates business in every part of the
country, or whether there shall be elected a
Congress which will afford relief, dethrone"
the thieves and place the seal of condemna-
tion upon the party of robbery and usurpa-
Not that any one proposes to remove
Hayes from his stolen office, but, because as
law-abiding citizens we submit to the infa-
mous wrong, it does not follow that we
should endure it and encourage its repeti-
tion. The people should arise with such a
whirlwind of indignation that no men or no
party will ever again dare to repeat the out-
Washburn is afraid of a live campaign.
He wants the Democrats to stand
on the, rock rooted" basis of
dead issues, repelling all alliances, and
Making a campaign on the dead and buried
past. If this can be done he knows he has
an easy victory. He is, accordingly, resort-
ing to the same corrupt practices by which
he secured his own nomination to control
the Democratic convention.
We charge Mr. Washburn directly and
positicely, xoith endeavoring, by the use of
money, to control the coming Democratic
conoention, and tee warn our friends
throughout the district to see that this dam-
nable plot is defeated.
We do not ask or seek to have a conven-
tion committed to any man, but we do ask
for a convention without a single traitor, for
delegations, every man of which will earnest-
ly and honestly desire to see Mr. Washburn
defeated, and who will take such action both
upon candidate and platform as to secure
that result. We want a platform upon which
every element of opposition to the corrupt
gang which Mr. Washburn represents can
stand. He represents everything which is
evil, and little or nothing which is good. A
man of decidedly mediocre attainments, he
seeks to buy his icay into Congress with
his money. Having debauched his own party
he hopes to continue the process in the ranks
of the opposition. A born aristocrat, an
enemy of labor and the laboring man, he
hopes to compass their support by purchase.
Under the hypocritical disguise of virtue, he
is resorting to the most corrupt and debas-
ing practices known to American politics.
The people of the Third District should
rise in their might and stamp this corrupt
and corrupting man out of political life.
With the large influx of Democratic voters,
with the hundreds of Republicans who re-
pudiate the financial policy of their party,
with hundreds more who do not want to see
the State disgraced by the infliction
of the Washburn incubus, he
can be defeated. But to ac-
complish this there must be a liberal
'There must be no secret Washburn emiS'
sar/es in the convention on the sixth of Sep-
If that convention is composed of men
who "mean business," a broad and liberal
policy will be adopted. A platform will be
framed upon which every element of oppo-
sition can stand by whatever name or na-
ture it exists. A candidate will be present-
ed who will command the confidence, re-
spect and support of the people and the at
tempt to inflict the Washburn dynasty upon
Minnesota will be a failure.
MB. TH VMM IJS'S SPEECH.
Unusual interest will attach to the utter
ances of Senator Thurman at Hamilton on
Tuesday, not only because of his position as
a- leader of the Democratic party in the
United States Senate, but because his is to
day one of the most prominent names men
tioned in connection with the Democratic
nomination for President in 1880. Both as
their present leader and as their prospective
standard bearer two years hence, Mr. Thur
man is entitled to a fair and candid hearing.
The speech, which was given in full in the
GLOBE of yesterday, is perhaps one of the
clearest expositions of Democratic doctrine
that has yet been given to. the., public. He
does not indulge in criticism of the ]olioy of
the Republican party except he finds good
ground for criticism and ample facts upon
which to base his objections to that policy
he makes no accusations that he cannot and
does not prove by an array of indisputable
figures taken from official sources.
The most notable portion of the speech is
that devoted to the financial question. In
discussing it Mr. Thurman brings to bis
aid a clear conception of all its phases anda
perfect knowledge of the evils under which
industry is to-day laboring. He objects to
the national bank system, and gives his rea
sons for that objection with such perspicacity
that every reader must be con
vinced of the correctness of his
position. He objects to such a cur
rency because it means an indefinite per
petuation of the national debt, the banks be
ing founded on that debt because it tends
tq combine, concentrate and intensify the
money power because it is a special privi
lege that puts many millions of dollars annu
ally into the pockets of the shareholders and
takes many millions annually out of the
pockets of the people. In illustrating this
last point Mr. Thurman presents the case
with great clearness thus:
The greenbacks now outstanding amount to
$346,661,016. Computing interest upon this
sum at the lowest rate at which the govern
ment can borrow money, 4 per cent., and we
have an annual saving to the people, resulting
from the use of the greenback, of $13,867,240.
Bat if greenbacks were substituted for $322,-.
000,000 of national banknotes now outstanding
there would be a further saving to the people
of 4 per cent, annually on that sum, namely,
$12.888,000making a total annnal saving by
the use of the greenback of $26,747,240. Froi
thiB, however, deduct the taxes on their circu
lation paid by the banks, amounting to about
three millions annually, and the net saving
would be about twenty-three and three-quarter
His conclusions 'are indisputable that
greenbacks should constitute the currency of
the country, and that the national bank sys
tem should be abolished as expensive, based
on a false theory of finance, and wholly per
For the present business depression Sena
tor Thurman arraigns the Republican party
in strong though temperate language, and
condemns the proposed resumption of
specie payments as wholly impracticable and
calculated to create instability through the
impossibility of maintaining a specie basis.
He then proceeds to charge the dominant
party with extravagance in the management
of the government, supporting his allega
tions with official figures. Leaving out all
expenses caused by or traceable to the war,
ho shows that the Republican administra
tion has expended an average of two and a
half times the amount for the ordinary ex
penses of the government that was expended
by the last Democratic administrations, or
an average expenditure of $1.94 per
capita under Democratic rule against an
average expenditure of $3.45 per capita un
der Republican rule.
A recapitulation of the public corruptions
that have brought such deep disgrace upon
the nation during the dominance of the Re
publican party, Mr. Thurman avoids, a bare
reference to them being calculated to awaken
loathing and indignation. He, however,
handles the great electoral conspiracy, by
means of which a President never elected
was placed in the White House, without
gloves. He denounces the actors in the
tragedy unsparingly, and exhorts his hearers,
by all they hold sacred and dear, to manifest,
in no uncertain tones, their abhorrence of the
With a brief reference to the policy of the
Republican party in seeking to stir up sec
tional strife and to prolong the animosities
engendered by the war, coupled with an ear
nest protest against such a manifestly hate
ful policy, Mr. Thurman closed what was
perhaps the best speech of the campaign.
It was not remarkable for its fine rhetoric or
for its florid appeals to the predjudices or
passions of the masses, but rather for its
calm presentation of pending issues, its
clqse, convincing reasoning, its entire want
of prejudice in dealing with the themes that
demanded his attention. It was a statement
of his own principles and the principles of
the Democratic party, and a demonstration
that those principles are logical, reasonable,
and calculated to work benefit
to the countryto stem the tide of
bankruptcy restore prosperity to the labor
ing classes give the country a safe and con
venient currency, restore economy and hon
esty to the administration of our govern
ment, and assist in the re-establishing ol
that fraternity between the sectionh that
ought to characterize the p9ople.
HOBAIIO SEVMOUA is a veritable Mark
Tapley, although lacking his exuberance ol
expression. He is confident that th9 coun
try is all rightthat it is bound to arise
from the slough of despond into which it
has fallen. He is sure a reaction from tie
present extravagance and corruption will
speedily come, and that the country will be
purer and better for its experience. Even
the communistic scare does not alarm hirr.
He thinks they are the most harmless of
men and will do more good than hurt. They
make clear by their idleness and their follies
the need of sound social organization.
When they talk of gaining their ends by
force and their desire to wade up to their
knees in blood, they only teach our citizens
the need of good laws well enforced. Their
impotence here i-hows the strength of our
government beyond that of others. They
may elect some of their nominees they may
qualify the action of the old parties, get
them out of their ruts, bring up new topics
for discussion, and in these ways may be of
use. The existence of these new organiza
zations proves that there is trouble and dis
tress in our country, and they will force the
governing party to look into their causes.
Mr. Seymour is exceptionally level-headed
on tais topic.
HE Republicans of the fifth Illinois dis
trict have thrown Mr. Burchard, their Rep
resentative for ten years, overboard, and
nominated a fresh man. This is Burchard's
reward for knocking the Republican cam
paign capital into a cocked hat towards the
close of the last session of Congress. It
will be rememberel that, when the cry of
revolution was at its height as the result of
the Potter electoral inquiry, Burchard sought
to commit the Democratic party to the
policy of questioning Mr. Hayes' title by
offering a resolution declaring that the
pending inquiry was not carried on for the
purpose of unseating the alleged President.
To his surprise the Democrats adopted his
resolution on the spot, and there was weep
ing and wailing and gnashing of teeth on
the Republican side. The Republicans have
concluded that they have no use for such a
fool in Congress any longer. A man who
cannot open his mouth without putting his
foot in it is of little use to any party.

fNew York Correspondence Washington Sunday
As a matter of fact Samuel J. Tilden is
busier to-day than almost any other man in
America. He not only expects to take
President Hayes' place, but he expects to be
the nominee of the Democracy in 1880.
Charley O'Rourke, manager of the New York

merchant, whose name must not be men

"To impeach Hayes."
"What makes you think so?"
"I know, sir I know that to-day Samuel
J. Tilden has emissaries (three of them) out,
and I know what his programme is. He
proposes to be elected to the United States
Senate in the place of Conkling, and also to

"Does he believe he will be elected Senator
by the New York legislature that will be
elected this fall?"
"He knows he will. He has that matter
fixed. Here is the first vantage-ground. He
weakened on the commission of Senators,
Representatives and judges who seated
Hayes, but he is desperate now."
"Does he expect to unseat Hayes?"
"No, of course not but he proposes to
keep his name so prominently before the
public, by reason of his being a Senator,
and by reason of the new question of im
peachment, thpt Thurman, Bayard, Hen
dricks and all must stand aside aud let Til
den be tue nominee against Grant in 1880."
"But he is so old?"
"He will be the liveliest old fossil yr.u
ever saw in 1880."
"Every Congress has two sessions. Tbe
first is the long one of the Forty-fifth Con
gress that is past the next, session of this
Congress adjourns by constitutional limit:
ends March 4,1879. It meets the first Mon
day of ue December."
"Yes but even that is provided against.
It is so arranged that they are to call a ses
sion of Congress on the 5th of March, 1879.
In other words, the Forty-sixth Congress
will immediately succeed the .Forty-fifth.
Tilden is to be elected Senator this winter by
the New York legislature, the impeachment
of Hayes will commence in February, and

seated on March the 5th."
"The House must impeach and ihe Senate

"I rue, but the House ib Democratic. No
body believfd the Potter resolutions would
pass, but they did."
"But there is no assurance that the next
House will be Democratic?"
"That has nothing to do with it. If this
House meet on the 5th of March, the next
Congress must meet then, and the Senate
must go on with the impeachment trial."
"It is usual for the President to call an
extraordinary session of Congress. Do you
suppose Mr. Hayes would do so under such

weakness of his case."
"But suppose he did not?"
'Then he would lose the opportunity.
That matter is settled in the minds of the
men who are managing this thing. They do

been weighed, and the advice of at least a

"They will and I tell you they will sea it
commence as I tell you. and that Tilden will
take Conkling's seat next March."
"Why did Manton Marble give such an
extended and curious history of the Elec
toral Commission business?"
"That is another part of the programme.
Marble did that to build up the waning
chances of Tilden for the nomination. It
was not for Marble to speak but Tilden
chose to speak through him. I look upon
that as a good stroke of policy so do all
Tilden's friends. If you read that paper
carefullv you will find that every squint of
incidental influence around it is deliberately
aimed against Thurman. It was a document
intended to stab Thurman, a man of whom
Tilden is surely afraid. Tilden has three
fixed ideas in view: First, he does not ex
pect to get Hayes out. Second, He proposes
to have him impeached, tried and acquitted
with doubt. Third, He proposes to raise the
very devil all the time to keep his owrf name
fresh fort neyt convention and counteract
the influences that seem arising in favor of
Thurman, Bayard, and that chronic can
didate, Thomas A. Hendricks. In all this
the Democrats assume and confidently be
lieve that the next President will be a
Democrat. They are fighting for the nomi
nation, and Tilden seems to have the inside
track, fearing only Thurman."
"How can they be thus assured?"
"Tilden has three trusty men out, much
better than those who spent his 'bar'l of
money' in the last Presidential campaign.
He knows his men now, and the Tilden
movement for the convention of 1879 is or
ganized beautifully, and has all the money on
he Democratic side. You sea there are a
number of bondholders among the Demo
crats who are watching this matter closely.
I hey would be satisfied with either Tilden
or Bayard, because both are sound on the
money question, but when you mention any
Western man's name in connection with the
Presidency they scare at once. They trem
ble at the name of Thurman because he is a
soft money man, and they want New York
and San Francisco to do the exchange of the
East, instead of forcing tbe Asiatic to go
around the world to make his exchanges in
London, as be has usually done, and would
continue to do if our currency was ex
"Then, according to what yon claim to
know from headquarters, Mr. Tilden is do

"He is. He will be elected by the Albany
legislature next winter to a "seat in the
Senate, anaVthe Forty-sixth Congress will
meet on the 6th of March, 1879, with an im-
peachment case pending. Further than
that, events must determine Tilden's future."
The New York city editor referred to with
whom this conversation was held, is a very

are to have a constitutional convention in

State is already hoarse with crying out for
reform, which means the destruction of every
material interest. I don't know what we
are coming to. The Chinese are debited
with all our misfortunes, and the agitators
are now publicly moving to drive them out

when the lower order of society in this

have been done in a free American State.
The man who has done it is here, and what
he has succeeded in doing in the West he
is going to try to do in the East. Sit down
supinely if you will, and see the landmarks
of social order swept away, but do not com
plain when the terrible result of your negli
genco confronts you. Under our present
system we support, perhaps, 200,000 tramps.
If you want to see the number swelled to
4,000,000, sit down and make no effort to de
fend the institutions which your father left
to you. These evils do not euro themselves.
There is only one way to cure them, and that
is, go into politics. You have nothing to
fear from it if you set yourself honestly and
manfully to work to win the respect of your
fellow citizens and of the public. [Cheers.]

Inquiry was made at the office of Trinity

to the probable proceedings of the house of

bishop, his resignation of his office in the

subject, it was said that tbe house of bishops
could accept the resignation of Bishop Mc

conviction aftei a formal trial. Such a trial
could be held only in the event of a present
