ulent President EndorsedMiscellaneous
WORCESTER, Mass., Sept. 18.The Republican
State convention assembled this morning.
Qav. Claflih was chosen permanent chair
man. A resolution was offered and referred to
the committee on resolutions demanding that
the corrupt, incompetent and unnecessary offi
cers and employes intrenched in the Boston
custom house and other public officers of the
State shall at once be discharged and such
places as the public good requires be filled with
honest, God-fearing, law-biding citizens.
WORCESTER, Mass., Sept. 18.The informal
ballot in the Republican convention stood,
Talbot 81 Land 266. Benj. F. Butler received
two votes, and when Bntler's name was read it
was received with hisBeB and laughter. On mo
tion of Mr. Nichols the informal ballot was
made formal and Henry Thomas Talbotl was
declaied the nominee for Governor with but
one dissenting voice.
John D. Long was nominated for lieutenant
governor, Henry L. Pierce for secretary of state,
Hon. Chas. Endicott for treasurer and Hon.
Geo. Morton for attorney general.
The committee on resolutions then made the
We, the Republicans of the commonwealth
of Massachusetts, in convention assembled,
Jiemtve, FirstThat the Republican party, in
spired by its past, gathers increased courage for
the work which remains to be done, renews its
allegiance to the high principles which have
guided it thus tar, and having preserved the
nation's existence pledges itself to preserve the
Secondlhat the Republican party IB com
mitted to the maintenance of the national
credit, and keeping of the public faith with all
creditors of the nation. We rejoice that the
resumption of specie payments has been so
nearly accomplished. We insist that all lawful
means shall be taken to insure such resump
tion within the time fixed by law that all
paper currency shall be redeemable in coin at
the will of the holder, and that both coin and
currency shall be kept at all times at par with
the gold standard of the commercial
wojjd. We believe that the American people
are too honest to want to violate their pledge,
are too intelligent to attempt to use as money
anything which has neither value in itself nor
represents value, and have too much regard
for their honor and piosperity to prefer unre
deemed and unredeemable promises instead of
money which shall pass current at its full face
value in every market of the world.
ThirdThat refunding of the national debt
at a lower rate of interest should be carried
forward as rapidly as possible that the strict
est economy in expenditures should be used
and the industries of the country relieved from
taxation so far as honor, good faith and neces
sity will permit that civil administration
should be maintained in its honesty and effi
ciency by the executive department, which
should take the responsibility which belongs
to it of maintaining nominations
to office without dictation or control from
other departments of the government, and
should, in the exercise of this power, use the
same care and good judgment, and demand the
same fidelity and devotion to duty that are re
quired in the management of important busi
ness offices, and we will cordially support every
measure which shall be deemed necessary to
raise the civil service to the high place of
honesty and efficiency demanded by the Cin
cinnati platform and the President's letter of
FourthThat mindful of the condition of
the industries of the commonwealth, and of the
decline value of property and in the earn
ings of labor and capital, it is the imperative
duty of town and city governments, and of
the State government, to use the strictest
economy in the administration of public affairs.
We demand that the legislature shall make
no new grants of public moneys in aid of pri
vate enterprises that public indebtedness shall
not be increased that the reduction
already made in public expenditures
shall be vigorously continued, and such changes
made therein as may be for the benefit of the
commonwealth that the system of taxation
shall be so modified that each person will contri
bute|in proportion to what he is worth to the end
that there shall be substantial relief from the
existing burdens of taxation.
FifthWe commend the efficiency and in
tegnty with which all departments of the State
government have been carried on and we de
nounce as false the charges of mismanagement
made against its administration. Although
inflation of the currency has caused extrava
gance in public and private life and influenced
legislation without distinction of party to au
thorize unnecessary and unwise appropriations,
which are not to be repeated, yet the State has
been well and honestly governed.
SixthThat the commonwealth of Massa
chusetts has prospered for more than two cen
turies, because her citizens have looked to
the interest of all, and have labored together
for the commonwealth, and when this union of
interest and action which has endured through
seasons of depression and disaster ceases, her
prosperity must cease. They who would fo
ment discord by falsely teaching that our com
munity is composed of hostile classes whose
interests are antagonistic, are public enemies,
whose defeat is essential to the public welfare,
and should be accomplished by the united
efforts of all honest men.
SeventhThat the success of the bold at
tempt to place an open repudiator in the exec
utive chair of this renowned commonwealth, is
an announcement to the world that for the
first time in her history Massachusetts has wa
vered in her devotion to honest finance, and is
indifferent to the sacredness of the public
EighthThat the Republicans of Massachu
setts will keep all their pledges, and will stand
by the President of the United States in his
efforts to keep his. We cordially commend
the purposes and integrity of his
administration, his firmness in resisting to the
limit of his constitutional power all efforts to
depreciate the currency or to violate the plight
ed faith of the nation, and his constant en
deavors to promote the restoration of good will
and of social and commercial intercourse be
tween citizens of all parts ot the country.
NinthThat we confidently recommend to
the people of Massachusetts the nominees of
this convention as men whose character and
ability are a guaranty they will wisely, pru
dently and efficiently administer the govern
ment of the commonwealth.

The Receivership Business Growing to be
a Great Evil in the Opinion of Judge
BaxterLonjr Pending: Case jfcnded
OINCTNJCATI, O., Sept. 18.Judg*- Baxter, of
the United States court, in passing upon the
application to allow a receiver of a railroad to
be garnisheed, took occasion to remark that
the practice of placing railroaks in the hands
of receivers, altogether too common, had be
come a great evil. He cited the case of a rail
road in Georgia which cost $15,000,000. The
receiver in charge issued certificates of indebt
edness for a million and a half. When the
road was sold the proceeds were not enough to
pay the certificates. In another case the road
cost over $8,000,000. When the road came to
be sold the eminent cousel requested the
judge to fix a minimum price for the sale,
suggesting that the price should be a sum suf
ficient to cover the charges of the receiver and
his lawyer. Judge Baxter said he had ob
served that when a receiver got possession he
generally ran the road for the benefit of him
self and his employes, including itfrsneyS,
and. he, the jadge, would hereafeer see there
should be reform in his circuit for the benefit
of creditors and stockholders. If proceedings
to sell and realize were vigorously pushed to a
conclusion he would vacate the receivership
and give the road back to the company. Great
interest was manifested in this deliverance cf
the judge by railroad people,
BALTIMORE, Sept. 18.In the South Carolina
railroad case to-day, at the conclusion of Mr.
Corbin's argument for the complainants, Judge
Bond rendered his decision in favor of the com
plainants, for the appointment of a receiver.
Judge Bond says: There can be no question
that defendant company is innocent, it has
mortgaged all its property twice, and now la
bors under a mortgaged debt of near $6,000,000
and finally has made an assignment to a syndi
cate of directers of the road of all its bills re
ceivable and available assets to secure payment
o a loan or. $200,000. Its insolvency is appa
rent The necessity of a receiver appears from
the fact that the road has a floating debt of
near $2,000,000 which is being rapidly reduced
to judgments, and already this
court haB been called upon by
injunction to restrain the floating debt credit
ors from seizing the road piecemeal and de
stroying the security of the mortgage creditors.
If a receiver be not appointed they will have
to issue as many injunctions as there are cred
itors for there is no hope that out of the in
come the present management can pay the
floating debt. It is to the interest of both the
first and second mortgagors that a receiver be
appointed, if for nothing else than to prevent
the property of the road, which is security for
their debt, from being frittered away in in
numerable suits. If the parties com
plaining has a right to the control of
this litigation, it is too late for
the trustees under the second mortgage, after
a request from the bondholders and refusal to
act, to come in after suit is brought and offer
to prosecute it. In the case of Richards, agent
of the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad, cited at bar,
the complainants themselves asked the court
to allow the trustees to proceed, and the jourt
complied, but there is no such consent here,
and the conduct of the trustees in delaying BO
long after knowledge of the road's complete
bankruptcy is at least no recommendation
for admission to condnct this suit.
The road is bankrupt. The security of this
second mortgage is not adequate, it seems to
me, for its payment, and the property of the
road is liable to seizure at every point by hold
ers of the floating debt. These facts cV.' for
the appointment of a receiver. Sol far as the
injunction is concerned which complainants
pray for in their bill, I shall issue it with a
modification that it applies only to the second
mortgage bonds of the railroad received by de
fendants as collateral security of the lebts of
the company, which bonds have been received
directly from the company to its offices.
Judge Bond suggested that parties b named
by counsel, from whom a receiver vould be
appointed. Richard Lathers, New Vrk, was
named by complainant's counsel. Respondent's
counsel named, first, Wm. J. Magrath present
president of the road, when Judge Bond said
no officer of the road would be appointed re
ceiver. Respondent then named Beatly D.
Hasell, of New York, and if there was objection
to him, they named Jno. H. Fisher, of New
York, who was receiver of the Atlanta &
Charlatte railroad. The judge said he would
announce the appointment hereafter.

To the Editor of the Globe.
ELK RIVER, Sept. 18, 1878.If there is
any one thing more noticeable than another
just now, it is the anxiety displayed on the
part of the Republican press for the pre
servation of the name and fame of the Dem
ocratic party. The nomination of Mr. Don
nelly, entirely unsolicited by him, is not to
their liking. The Republican press, ever
since Mr. Donnelly ceased to act with that
party, have besmeared him in season and
ont of season with unclean epithets, employ
ing the fishmonger's vocabulary of the vilest
sort. The Pioneer Press leads of with,
"that pestiferous little demagogue, Ignatius
The Dispatch man, who never did like an
Irishman, (not even the one he met in the
bank,) not to be outdone, chimes in in the
following classic style: "A vile black
guard and disgusting mudsquirter." And
so all over the district, and State for that
matter, the little dirt-slingers join in the
chorus, and while they are one and all in
dulging in language of such a shameless
character that no man of self-respect could
for a moment stoop to notice they are won
derfully exercised lest the campaign on Mr.
Donnelly's part will not be high toned! It
is to be hoped in the future as in the past of
this campaign, the Democratic party will have
the dignity and good taste, not to imitate the
wretched example set them by "the party of
high moral ideas." Thus far, Mr. Don
nelly, has served his constituents in Min
nesota, more years than Mr. Washburn has
weeks, and during that period he has not
been asleep, but an active worker, furnishing
his opponents with a record which they are
invited to criticise. If Republican readers
are ignorant of it, tell them what it is, not
what it is not. And remember when
you whine about him leaving
the Republican party, that such things
are not now regarded as a crime. There was
a time when membership in the Republican
party amounted to something, but that is in
the past. Mr. Donnelly has legislated in the
National and State Legislature. If he has
voted and worked against the interest of the
people, surely you can tell when and where.
Do it, and not stand off making faces,
and using indecsnt language. In conclu
sion, if Hon. Ignatius Donnelly does not
conduct and prosecute a more seemly and
respectable campaign on his part than that
the Republican party have opened on him, I
hope he may be defeated. R. P. C.

The Fair at L.dke Ctty.
LAKE Crrt, Sept. 18.-The third annual fair
of the Lake Pepin agricultural union opened
at the Lake City driving park to-day. As to
the weatherand that is a paramount consid
eration in the matter of successful fairsit
could not be made better. These are glorious
Indian summer days and the nights, what of
them? They are death 6ft mosquitoes, and in
vite to the most profound and refreshing slum
The wheat is garnered, the corn has ripened,
the acorns are falling, and melons are abroad
in the land at a nickel a dozen. Who does not
love the autumn the season of fairs and bears
and horse races, and pretty girls, and great
fat melons, and lucious ripe fruit, and forty
thousand threshing machines all humming at
once. Give us autumn with its calm, smoky
days and mild, brilliant nights.
THE FIRST DAY.
The fair starts in under favorable auspices.
Of course this is preparation day, devoted to
making entries, moving in, fitting
up and putting things in order.
They are certainly abundantly able
to have a good fair here. There are four large
rich counties concerned in the enterprise:
Wabashaw and Goodhue, of Minnesota, and
Pierce and Pepin, of Wisconsin. It brings
that much of the two great States into the
field of wholesome rivalry with their products:
and besides it calls the people together and be
gets a spirit of inter-social, fraternal fellow
feeling, that is a good thing to carry around in
one's heart. A whole raft of people float
across the water from the Wisconsin side
and take a hand in the work.
They bring over their tall corn, mammoth cab
bages, strong onions, heavy wheat, hundred
pound pumpkins, great squashes their Pipins
and Russets and Baldwins and Concords and
Deiawares, and a long line of fruits and flowers
and grains and grasses, and chip in with this
fine section of Minnesota and have a good time
and let people know what they are doing.
THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES.
The usual number of side-shows are on hand
if that is any indication of a feastor a]famine.
The phonograph and the Strasburg clock, the
man with the trained horse, the double-headed
cow and the pig with six or eight legs, a bal
loonist, Pike's opera troupe, and ten or fifteen
shows of minor importance are buzzing in and
around here like yellow-jackets after having
been stirred up by a lot of unruly school boys.
Several fast horses are in town, and the chances
are that there will be some good trotting before
the week is over. A citizens' purse is being
raised for the purpose.
TOLEDO, Sept. 18.Eight thousand people
visited the tri-State fair to-day. Large addi
tions to the attraction were made to-day by ex
hibits that had been delayed by extension of
time at other fairs. The prominent feature

Rev. H. R. Alger opened the discussion on
this paper. He said we must make theology
so attractive that all will study it. Spinozla
was a better theologian when he was grinding

the fire and writing his institutes.
The afternoon session was largely taken up
with the report of Rev. Dr. Billows, on the
work of the council. He closed with recom
mending that some plan be adopted to keep
unfit men from obtaining ordination and
settlement over societies.
Rev. J. L. Jones, in charge of, the missionary
work west of Buffalo, made a report of the
condition of Unitarianism in Ohio, Indiana,
Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri,
Nebraska, Kansas and California.
The evening session was devoted to educa

on the Unitarian policy of keeping education
apart from sectarianism.

THE DOG SHOW.
Mr. Chas. Lincoln's Part in Making it the
Grand Success it WasGood Words From
the Chicago "Field."
Mr. Charles Lincoln, superintendent of the
late bench show of dogs, under the auspices of
the Minnesota kennel club, leaves this morn
ing for his homo in Detroit, Mich. Mr. Lin
coln came to St. Paul Bome eleven weeks ago at
the invitation of the Kennel club to arrange for
and conduct their Inaugural exhibition. From
the location of St. Paul, the enterprise on the
part of the gentlemen organizing the club was
a hazardous one in the extreme, and while each
member of the club, and especially the officers,
are entitled to all praise for the grand success
achieved, it is not too much to Bay that much of
that success was due to Mr. Lincoln. His well
earned experience in the management of such
shows, and above all his personal acquaintance
with the owners of the most famous dogs of
the country, gave to Mr. Lincoln elements
of success probably possessed by no
other man in the country. When is
added to the above, indomitable energy in
everything he undertakes, Mr, Lincoln's suc
cess in bringing together here confessedly one
of the finest dog shows ever given in this
country is not BO much a matter of
surprise. The work devolved upon Mr.
Lincoln in bringing about this success has been
immense, and it is not to be wondeied at that
having seen all matters with the show con
cludedall bills and premiums paidhe writes
Jinis against it with a feeling of relief. In
taking his departure from St. Paul,
Mr. Lincoln carries with him the best
wishes of a large circle of acquaintances
made during his stay, and especially of his as
sociates in the bench show, all of whom will
be pleased to learn of his good fortune in the
utuie. And should, as it is more than prob
able, another bench show shall be given, it is
to be hoped that Mr. Lincoln will be here to
In this connection we take the following no
tice of the fair and the dog show from the
Chicago Field, written by one of its editors.
The Field says:
To-night has ended a week of glory for St.
Paul. The fair has been an immense success,
and brought into the city a crowd such as St.
Paul has never had in it before. On Tuesday
and Wednesday the attendance was estimated
each day, and on} Thursday, the day
Pcesident Hayes was present, over 50,000. A
fact worthy of note, there was not a single in
stance of disorderly conduct.
The dog show was an immense success. Al
though the dogs entered, and those on exhibi
tion, numbered only 225, yet the show ranks
among one of the best held. What it lacked in
numbers it made up for in quality, as will be
seen by a perusal of the list of entries. Among
which will be found several of the cracks
Although held in the fair grounds and part of
the fair, there was an extra charge made to see
the dogs. The visitors numbered 15,000. which
is a nut for Col. King, of Minneapolis, to crack.
It must be understood that between Minneap
olis and St. Paul there is a great rivalry, which
is induced in a great measure by being
so close to each other, tho distance being only
eleven miles. The State fair here and an op
position fair at Minneapolis on the same days
but intensified the feeling of rivalry. Colonel
King had, however, omitted a dog
show as one of his attractions, and so
burlesqued the St. Paul show by having two
stuffed curs put under a tent and labeled "Our
dog Bhow." But, Colonel, as the St. Paul show
drew 15,000 people,theadage''Let him laugh who
wins," is appropriate, and the laugh is decided
ly on you. Live thoroughbreds draw a paying
crowd stuffed curs draw only a laugh and the
joke on the would-be joker.
SEWALt'S LAST MOVE.
How He Proposes to Crowd Out the Stoive
To the Editor of the Globe:
ST. PAUL, Sept. 18, 1878.The supreme wis
dom and wonderful capacity of our city engi
neer is displayed in the following specification
taken from his general specifications for paving
Jackson street, and I think it deserves some
notice. To wit: "The foundation of pave
ment shall be clean, coarse gravel, six inches in
thickness, free from, stone erceedtnrj one inch in
diameter"and"All gravel used for filling
between blocks shall be screened so as to
be between tfie size of peas, and the size of liazle-
nutx." This specification is simply ridiculous.
There is not gravel enough in or near the city,
within hauling distance ot Jackson street, to
cover it "six inches deep,"and if obliged to
screen it to take out stones larger than one
inch in diameter, (provided you could get it,)
it would cost more than the blocks and labor.
This specification applies only to the Stowe
pavement, which being patented, has its own
specifications for the foundation.
If Engineer Sewall makes his specifications
then, if complied with, why, of course, it ren
ders all assessments void if the contract is let
for the Stowe pavement, for the specifications
of that patent will not be fulfilled. lean only
infer that these restrictions are put upon the
Stowe pavement to crowd it out. for they are
too preposterous for any sane contractor to bid
upon who means to fill his contract in good

Mike Flaherty Gives Them a Drubblns
and Secures His Property.
About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon a
couple of tramps happened to pass along
Valley street, and seeing that it was wash
day at the house of Michael Flaherty and
that a tempting array of biled shirts were
srspended from the clothes line they jump
ed the fence, loosened the clothes pins and
made off with half a dozen of the garments.
They were seen by the inmates of the house,
but as there happened to be nobody at home
physically competent to wrestle with the
couple a young lad followed them up. They
went down to a vacant house near the Lake
Superior depot under the bluff, where they
proceeded to disrobe themselves and ex
change their soiled garments for
those more presentable which they
had accumulated at Mr. Flaherty's.
The lad returned home and found his big
brother Mike, who repaired with him to the
den of thieves mentioned. An attack was
made upon the tramps, who had been rein
forced by one* and one of the party pretty
badly used by the hard-fisted Mike. By the
aid of some neighbors the capture was ef
fected of two ofthe knights the pounded
otwresoBping. The captives were marched
in triumph toward the station by the impro
vised, vigilance committee, ancL were met
midway by Capt. Clark, who gave legality to
the arrest by takiog the pair charge.
Subsequently Officer Mullins arrested
a well known thief and tramp named
Hughes, and later Officer De Cofsey run in
two others of the same genus. About 10
o'clock last evening Officer De Corsey ran
across a fellow with both eyes badly bnnged
up, whom he took to be a tramp and con
ducted him to the cooler. It turned up that
his optical ornaments had been given him
by Mr. Flaherty in the early afternoon skir
mish, and he was properly booked. So six
of the genus were entered as destined for
He looked seedy enough for a decayed
rat-catcher, but yet he had talent. He stum
bled across CUiof Weber and Capt. Clark at
a popular Wabashaw street resort about 11
o'clock last evening, and hidden beneath his
well-worn alpacca coat appeared to be a
box of cigars. Capt. Clark investigated, and
fonnd that the cigar box had been converted
into a rude imitation of a fiddle, with only
two strings, and a bow of the most primitive
construction seemed to afford no hope of
even the most excruciating attempts at
music. Nevertheless he was giv^n a chance.
He sawed and he scraped, and succeeded in
worrying out of the combination some very
passable strains. "There was lots of fun at
Finnegan's wake," "The wearing of the
green," "The Arkansas Traveler," and other
melodies of a well known classical character
found utterance, and the hat was passed
round. With many professions of thanks to
the generous contributors for their munifi
cence, the minstrel was about to depart,
when Capt. Clark, who, it is to be feared,
has no music in his soul, requested the
pleasure of his company to the cooler. Mr.
ioleyfor he it proved to bereluctantly
assented, and the record showed one more
Meeting of Passenger Agents.
There passed through the city last evening
for Minneapolis, by special train on the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway, be
tween fifty and sixty of the general passenger
agents of the leading railways of the coun
try. These gentlemen visit this section as
the guests of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul railway, and were entertained last night
at Minneapolis by the local officers of that
company. After looking about Minneapolis
this morning, the party will visit St. Paul,
arriving here this forenoon, and will be en
tertained the balance of the day by Judge
Chandler and other officers of the company,
leaving on their return to Chicago in the
evening. The programme of entertainment
mapped out by Judge Chandler includes a
dinner at the Merchants, in Col. Allen's best
Btyle, a ride to points of interest in and
about the city, with such other infoimal
hospitalities as time and circumstances will
Carvinu a Boy "While Sleeping.
A nice little cutting jamboree took place
at the Merchants hotel about 1 o'clock yes
terday morning. John Hatton, Leroy D.
Foster and James M. Connallm were all
waiter boys at the hotel, occupying one
room. Hatton and Foster had gone to bed
and Hatton was awakened by finding that
Connallin had come in and was carving
him (Hatton) with a pocket knife.
Foster was awakened by the conflict
and the t-ro managed to secure Connallm
and band him over to the police. Hatton
was quite seriously cut in the neck. He
was BIBO seriously stabbed in the left arm
and thigh. When Connallin was arraigned
in court yesterday he pleaded entire igno
rance of the whole matter. He was held in
$500 bail, and being unable to secure it he
went to jail.
An English Shaker Prophetess.
Mrs. Girling, leader and prophetess of the
Shaker Community which has been ejected
from its field in Hampshire, England, dis
claims having any connection with Elder
Evans' Society at Mt. Lebanon, New York,
and says she knows nothing of the American
Community. She claims to have received
letters of sympathy from all parts of England,
and to have had an offer of free passage
to New Zealand, with promise of a place
of settlement, but she refuses absolutely to
leave the country. The Community num
bers eighty men, women and children,
who have lived more than a week in the
public highway without shelter or protec
tion. One Sunday morning, after a night of
rain, bedclothes, mattresses, pillows and
clothing were seen hanging on the hedges to
dry. As late as 11 o'clock several of the
male Shakers were engaged in their morning
ablutions. Fresh clothes were being taken
out of the boxes, the wet ones taken off and
the dry ones put on. While their plight is
melancholy enough, the Shakers claim they
have suffered a harder fate. They receive
gifts of food and money from friends. Al
though wholly unable to obtain shelter, they
are determined to keep together, and repeat
with unfailing patience the words: "The
Lord will provide."
