THE adjournment of Congress gives Mr.
Hayes' backbone an opportunity to adjourn
also.Chicago Tribune.
There is this difference, however: Con

are grave doubts as to whether Hayes' back
bone will ever be of use, even for camp
meeting purposes.
MB. EVABTS has informed the Canadian
government that he doesn't want Sitting
Ball to oross the line into the territory of
the United States. We presume that Lome
will communicate Evarts' wishes to S. B.,
and that they will be respected else we will
lose confidence in human honor, especially
of the Eauuck-Iudian type.
SHERMAN says he hasn't read the report of
the Glover committee, and doesn't think he
will. We presume there is no law compel
ling him to read it, and as he is no donbt
familiar with the mode of conducting affairs
in his own department, we suppose Mr.
Glover's revelation is no news to him. He is
no doubt aware of al) the crookedness that
has been going on for so many years if he
is not, he is unfit for the position he occu
HOD STRAIT is mentioned as a possible
successor to MoCrary as secretary of war
while it is rumored that Ramsey has been
thrown overboard. We have no objections
to offer to either of the gentlemen men
tioned, for anybody from Minnesota is bet
ter than the average of people from the rest
of the union, bnt we might be allowed to
suggest that the olaims of the bald-headed
charger of the prairies have been wholly ig
nored. Let as get up a "boom" for Marshall.
THE intelligence comes from Washington
that the Maine State executive committee
has advised the Republican Congressional
Campaign committee not to circulate finan
cial speeches in Maine. The report comes
from the Pine-tree State that if the financial
issue is uppermost, the Republicans will cer
tainly lose the State. Hence the Congres
sional committee is instructed to send
bloody shirt rather than financier pabulum,
for the delectation of the Maine voters. This
is a very simple illustration of the straits to
which the Republicans are reduced. The
principles they advocate in one section are
fatal to them in another. They dare not
advocate their financial theories in one por
tion of the country, and the bloody shirt will
not answer in another. The Democracy, on
the contrary, have principles that can be
advocated everywhere, and are generally ac
cepted. Their principles have application to
the whole country, not to any particular sec
LET the stalwart organs throughout the
country let loose their dogs of war. It has
just been announced that Mrs. Sarah A. Dor
sey, who died in New Orleans recently, has
left a will bequeathing her whole estate to
Jefferson Davis. In making this bequest
Mrs. Dorsey refers to the great services and
sacrifices of Mr. Davis on behalf of the
South, and she reproves his countrymen for
their failure in gratitude and appreciation
for such services, and regrets the smallness
of the contribution which she is able to
make for his relief. The bequest, however,
is sufficient to support Mr. Davis in ease
for the remainder of his life. We have no
desire to question the right of Mrs. Dorsey
to give her property to whoever she may
choose, but we desire to call the attention of
our stalwart colleagues to the fact that the
bequest referred to is an evidenoe that the
South is still rebellious, and "needs the
strong arm of the central government to
bring it into subjection to the union." This,
surely, is exouse enough for flaunting the
sanguinary undergarment anew, and if our
Republican brethren do not take advantage
of the situation they must be very slow to
A Washington special says that Secretary
Sherman has prepared two speeches which
he will deliver in Ohio. They treat alto
gether of the finances and are not of a po
litical nature. Both area comprehensive re
view of the operations of the resumption
law, and the financial management of the
treasury department under Hayes' adminis
tration. He had intended, also, to deliver
one or two finanoial speeches in Maine, bat
the latest advices from that quarter are that
if he comes into the State at all, "it will be
much better for him to whoop up the skull
and cross bones," rather than to boast re
sumption among the farmers, who are be
ginning to feel the effects of the shrinkage in
values. Mr. Sherman will probably find, be
fore he gets through, that he has "bit off more
than he can chaw." To undertake a defense
of his operations under the resumption law
isa job that few would care for. Not only
will be be obliged to exoqw bis violations of
law in that connection, but he will" have to
oonvinoe the men who have been ruined by
his policy of contraction that their misfor
tunesor rather the misfortunes he brought
upon themwere for the best. It will be a
difficult task.
The vindication of the management of
the treasury department, however, will be
equal to one of the seven labors of Hercules.
The report of the Glover oommittee on that
subject, substantiated as it is by the testi
mony of nnimpeaohable witnesses, will be a
very bad stumbling block in the way of his
success. That report proves that the treas
ury department is a very breeding place for
rogues that in every bureau there is a
premium offered for dishonesty that bribe
taking is the rule among the employes that
efficient party service is esteemed as a con
donation of the worst forms of dishonesty
that the government has been swindled out
of millions of dollars through the dishon
esty or incompetency of the officials and
that there are no proper guards established
against the perpetration of the grossest
frauds. The mints, the pension office,
the secret service, the marine hospital
service and the printing bureau are
alike rotten, and as a result of their misman
agement bullion purchased has been lost or
stolen, pensioners have been defrauded out
of their just dues, honorable merchants have
been shamelessly blackmailed, sailors have
been overtaxed for privileges they did
enjoy, and fraudulent currency has been set
afloat. All these crimes and misdemeanois
have been fully proved. If Mr. Sherman
succeeds in disproving them in the course of
two speeches from the stump, he will prove
himself a veritable Titan, to whom we will
pay due reverence.
Mr. Sherman's speeches will receive due
consideration from the country. He has un
dertaken a pigantio task, and we doubt
greatly if he can accomplish it. He can only
interpose a general denial of the charges
preferred against his department, but that
will avail little against the specifio allega
tions set forth in the Glover report. Before
finally passing judgment, however, we are
willing to give him a hearing, and await his
explanations with expectancy.
There is no longer any room to doubt that
the country has entered upon an era of re
newed prosperity. For six years industry
has been on the down grade. The great
crash of 1873 was followed by a season of
unexampled business depression. Manfac
turing was almost at a stand-still. One after
another of the great mills suspended, and
tens of thousands of artisans were thrown
out of employment. The construction of
railroads was entirely stopped, and but little
new territory was developed. Business men
andcapalists were obliged to curtail their
enterprises, but notwithstanding this thou
sands were forced into the bankrupt courts.
Even the professions felt the universal dis
tress through a diminution of their fees and
their inability to make collections. This
distress was still further aggravated
few years later by the failure of
scores of savings banks that had
been previously considered thoroughly re
liable. Real estate took a tumble, and as a
consequence it was impossible to secure in
vestments. Added to all this the policy of
the administration in preparing for specie
resumption further assisted the disaster, and
the outlook has been indeed gloomy.
Since the present year began, however,
there have been most encouraging evidences
of a revival in all departments of trade and
industry. Investors have regained confi
dence in the future, and have entered hearti
ly into the promotion of new enterprises
railroad managers have resumed the con
struction of new lines into the fertile lands
of the West and Northwest' the tide of em
igration from Europe and the Eastern States
has once more commenced to flow in large
volume merchants have added largely to
their stocks of goods and farm
ers to their acres manu
facturers have been stimulated to add to the
capaoity of their works, and the hum of
industry is heard all over the land, ^jn the
northwest none who are willing to 0/^ re
main idle. All have enough to do at remu
nerative wages, and there is every indication
that the eraof hardtimesHs over. In Minne
sota and Dakota alone several hundred miles
of new railroad will be built before winter
sets in, opening up vast tracts of the most
productive soil in the world to settlement*
and arrangements are already in progress
for a continuation of the good work in 1880,
Mills and manufactories of all descriptions
are springing up on every side, affording
employment for the artisan and profitable
investment for capital. Everywhere there is
a prospect of an abundant harvest, and if no
unfortunate circumstance should occur the
farming community will reap a gratifying
return for their labor.
The most significant indication of all is
the anxiety manifested by capitalists to en
gage in the new railroad and manufacturing
enterprises. For the past six years they
have been exceedingly timid in the matter of
investments, and have preferred to let their
money remain idle rather than run the risk
of loss. Now their policy has been reversed,
and no legitimate enterprise finds difficulty
in obtaining sufficient money to place it
upon a good footing. Real estate, too, has
bounded upward, and brings something ap
proaching ante-panio'prices. Everybody is
hopeful, full of energy and enterprise, and
will do everything possible to keep the ball
rolling. We have abundant reason for en
couragement on every hand.
MINNESOTA has more interest in the wheat
"boom" than in all the Presidential "booms"
and bar'ls oombined. Prices have been ab
surdly low, but the bulls have the bulge at
present and August touched $1.02, yesterday,
in Chicago. It is refreshing to see a wheat
quotation at one dollar and upwards after
many months down in the eighties and nine
ties. The intrinsic value of wheat has been
above the figures at which it has ranged for
eight months, and those who have had the
foresight to act on this idea have made
money. The advance of wheat the last
ten days will be worth three or four million
dollars to Minnesota if it is maintained until

The Editorial Fraternity off Arkansas, and
Their Ladles In St. Paul.
An excursion party of Arkansas ladies and
gentlemen, under the auspices of the Edi
torial association of that State, reached St.
Paul yesterday morning via the St. Paul &
Duluth railroad. The party numbers about
a hundred souls, including State officers,
judges, lawyers and other professional men,
and a goodly number of the fair sex. The
party left Little Rook July 2nd, and have
traveled via St. Louis, Chicago, Milwaukee
to Ashland, Wis., thence by Lake Superior to
Duluth, and thence to St. Paul. Reaching this
oity after a comfortable night's travel in the
elegant sleepers on the St. Paul & Duluth
road, and bracing up with one of Col.
Allen's satisfying breakfasts, the party dis
tributed themselves about in oarriages for a
drive about St. Paul. This occupied the
forenoon, and was thoroughly enjoyed.
After dinner at the Merchants the party took
cars for Fort Snelling, Minnehaha and
Minneapolis, between which the afternoon
was spent, returning to St. Paul about 9
It is hardly necessary to say the party is
thoroughly delighted with their trip, their
only regret being that time and business
will not allow its extension to Bis
marck, Winnipeg and other points of
interest in this great Northwest, of which
they had read much, but the greater beauty,
salubrity and productiveness of which was
not even dreamed of before this present
This morning at 9 o'clock the party will
leave by special train for their return trip,
going by the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
to KUborn City, where a day will be spent in
a trip through the famous dalles of the Wis
consin river, thence to Chicago and St.
Louis by rail, and from that point home by
the lower Mississippi palaces.

Import of the Recent Declaration of the
Propaganda Relating to Church. Govern
ST. LOUIS, July 9.The America, a Ger
man daily, published in this city, will to
morrow contatn the latest document of the
propaganda in Rome concerning the organ
ization of the Catholic church in the United
States. This document, the genuineness of
which Is vouched for by prominent western
bishops, declares, first, that the instructions
of July 20th, 1878, do not apply to transfer
of priests from one congregation to another,
the decree of the second conned of Baltimore
remaining intact in this respect. Bishops,
it is true, shall take care not to transfer
priests against their wish from one mission
to another without grave and rational cause,
but only in case of the final deposition of a
rector from office by previous consultation
of the newly created convention obligatory.
SecondThat even if the election of
counsellors or judges is done
in the synod, the election
of the same properly belongs to the bishop,
and the vote of the synod is merely consulta
tive. If the election is done in the synod it
belongs absolutely to the bishop, but if the
choice is made to fill vacancies it is becoming
that the bishop should first have the vote of
the remaining councilmen.
ThirdThat the vote of counsellors is al
ways consultative, the definite decision being
reserved to the bishop, but the vote and opin
ion of counsellors must always be inserted in
the proceedings.
FourthThat by instructions of the prop
aganda of July 20th, 1878, the extra power
of bishop3 to suspend a priest by reason of
very important cause and urgent necessity,
is not interfered with. It is law for any rec
tor to bring before the council another prie3t,
subject to approval of the bishop, either as
his assistant attorney.
This document is signed by Cardinal Sime
oni, cardinal of the propaganda, and J. Bag
nozzi, secretary of the same congregation.

Jim JCeene in Chicago Directing the Oper
ation* of His BrokersA R^ise in the
New York MarketThe Situation as
Viewed by Rufus Hatch$V hat the Com
bination Control and What They Ex
pect to Accomplish.
i [Chicago Times, July 8.1
Jim Eeene thought he got a "scoop" on the
Chicago papers by sojourning here a whole
week and escaping to New York before the
obiquitous interviewer should "tumble" to
his presence in the oity. But for an unfor
tunate circumstance, he would have succeed
ed in his soheme. A reporter for the Times
chanced in the office of the general manager
of the Lake Shore railway at 4 o'clock yes
terday afternoon. Presently, Mr. Parsons,
division superintendent, entered the office,
hat hand, and introduced the gentleman
accompanying him as Mr. James Eeene. Mr.
Reene declining the proffer of a chair, ex
plained to Mr. Newell that he wished to take
the 5:15 train Eastward, and asked for the
privilege of attaohing his private car. He
explained, further, that the coach was the
directors' car of the Union Pacific company,
and it had been sent over to San Francisco
for his wife and children, who had just ar
rived from Omaha. Mr. Eeene, unsuspioious
of the reporter, whom he evidently mistook
for Mr. Newell's private secretary, dropped
the remark that he had been in town for a
week, but had chosen not to let the fact be
come known. Orders were given to have
the private coach hooked on to the train,
and Mr. Eeene bowed himself out of the of
fice. The reporter set out at once to ascer
tain what Jim Eeene could have been doing
here for a week past. Why had he not put
*up at a hotel and registered like any other
stranger? How had it happened that his
presence in town had not been
discovered by the board of
trade? What kind of a scheme
could he have been engineering during his
week's seclusion here? Some of theseconun
drums were partially solved. The reporter
learned that Eeene came here on last Tues
day, and was driven in a close carriage to
the house of a friend. He has not been away
from that house, except to go driving once
or twice, until yesterday, when he went to
the depot to meet his wife and children.
The house where he secreted himself from
the commission men and reporters is situa
ted on the North side, and is a massive and
ornate pile of architecture. There he re
ceived his business associates and confiden
tial brokers, and from that hiding place he
gave directions regarding his transactions on
the market. A gentleman who was in the
secret, but who might never have breathed it
to a soul had Eeene not "given himself
away" to a reporter, admitted, when pressed
forau answer, that Eeene had chosen to' se
clude himself because announcement in the
papers of his pie3ence here would have
disturbed the market andjinterfered with the
success of his scheme. He was asked to de
fine the natute and scope of the "scheme."
This he declined te do, but the little things
he incautiously let drop in his conversation
justify the conclusion that Eeene's brokers
and business associates in this city have
been quietly selling his wheat for July de
livery. The amount of wheat owned by
the Eeene crowd and stored here is about
four millions of bushels. The theory is
that they are getting rid of this before the
new spring wheat begins to come in. There
hasn't been a suspicion on the board of
trade that Eeene was within a stone's throw
of the building, and was personally direct
ing the operations of his brokers and con
fidential agents, and but for the accidental
circumstance related above, the fact of his
being here might never have become known
to more than a half-dozen persons, who were
enjoined to the most perfect secrecy.
Rufus Hatch on the Situation.
{Chicago Tribune, July 8.
Mr. Rufus Hatch, who has out quite a
prominent figure in the New York combina
tion controlling the deal in spring wheat, ar
rived in the city Saturday evening. A re
porter of the Tribune called on him at the
Palmer House to get some information from
him as to the future prospects of the deal, as
well as his opinions on the crop prospects at
home and abroad.
In response to a question as to the situa
tion Mr. Hatch said: "I don't keep Mr.
Eeene's books, and the situation can be
stated in a few words. Mr. Eeene believed
that wheat was a good property to have and
so he purchased a large amount of it, intend
ing to hold it for higher, and what he deems
legitimate, prices."
Then there has been no corner as yet?"
"Certainly not, in the ordinary sense of
the word. The receipts had disappointed
everyone in their volume, and at one time it
seemed as if the press and all the people of
the country had turned bears upon their
own productions."
"Then this is to be viewed in the light of
a straight deal?"
'Of course. Mr. Eeene is a large specu
lator and bought this property for a rise
in which he expects to be gratified. Those
in Chicago who have assailed him, and have
lost their occupation as manipulators of the
market, have none bnt themselves to blame."
"Then you think there is no ground for
this complaint against Eeene?"
"Why should there be? It is difficult to
see why dealers should sell the market down
and plunder the country producers. Still
they have done so, and succeeded in getting
rid of a vast amount of their surplus, after
persistent effort, at prices at least 20 pertime
cent, below its value. Mr. Eeene has certain
ly tried to injure none by depreciating
the property, and those who do,
and suffer in consequence, will
pet but little sympathy in their howl against
Eeene. He has tried to keep his wheat for
a legitimate price, and for this he has been
assailed by the press and dealers of Chicago.
He has made no complaint, however, and has
asked no favors of any, either banks or in
"To come down to the main question, Mr.
Hatch, will the deal be kept up, or may we
look for a break?"
"Those who sold short for June have had
to fill their contracts at a loss, and those who
have done the same for July andAugust will
have the same experience. Make or break,
Mr. Eeene will carry his deal through to a
legitimate result, asking no favors even if he
does not grant any. Is he to blame if he
purchases property on a reasonable and fair
speculation? If he has made a mistake he
will pay his losses without whining, as those
who are trying to thrive by bearing the mar
ket and depreciating other people's property
have no right to blame others for their own
"On what does Mr. Eeene pin his hopes
for arise in No. 2 spring wheat?"
"On the crop prospects. Europe wants
all the breadstnffs we can supply, and will
take them at much higher prices. Why
should we not have the benefit of it? The
reports from abroad generally show light
crops and an increased demand fully equal
to our capacity. The granaries are empty
here and in Europe, ill the grain is in
sight, and the whole crop, almost, has been
scraped together for the June deal. Spain,
France, Italy and Russia report much small
er crops than last year, and this country
must be the only source of supply."
"Then you believe that wheat will contin
ue to advance?"
"Yes. The fact is that the combination
control, and have controlled for months
past, all and more than all the No. 2 spring
wheat in the market. It would have
been the easiest thing in the world to have
pinched all the shorts months ago,
and I would have done it too if I
had been running the deal. If you have
any wheat, keep it. And, for that matter,
if you have any land, keep that too. The
farmers will not always be bears on their
own produce. It is really worth something
and when they begin to realize this, and tba^
it is all wanted for actual consumption, we
will have better prices, healthier trade, and
more general prosperity."
"Did that bogus dispatch have any adverse
effect on the new deal?"
"Well, I should say it had. Europe was
all ready to buy, but when that news first
went across the water as genuine it broke
the market all to pieces. Now we are just
getting back to where we were before. Mr.
Eeeneiiras sorry that innocent dealer* had
suffered by this fraudulent use of his name,
but he doesn't believe, and neither do I,
that the guiLy parties made much out of it.
At the moment, no doubt, they realized
something, but in the end they must have
"Have you had any idea as to the author
ship of the dispatch
"Why, of course we have. That dispatch
was instigated of course in Chicago. We
went to the telegraph office and saw the
hand-writing, which corresponded with
specimens of letters which I had in my office.
We couldn't prosecute, however, for the tele

evening for Leadville, where he goes to take
a general view of the mining districts. He

that district, and considers it as certain that

great mining interests of the section east-of
the Rockies.
Celebrating the Fourth of July at tlie Jump
ing Off Place.
To the Editor of the Globe.
MANDAN, D. T., July 5.The citizens of
Mandan and surrounding country held their
first Fourth of July celebration yesterday
it was a highly entertaining onea perfect
success. When it is taken in consideration
that this whole country west of the Missouri
at this point, a year ago was but a wild
uninhabited section, with only a few hardy
and adventuresome frontiersmen scattered
about, it will be seen that when a pio nic
could be held suck as mentioned, great and
rapid changes and improvements must have
taken place within a very short spaceof time,
which they have.
It was estimated that from 800 to 1000
people visited the grounds, 500 or more
actual residents of Mandan and farmers and
stockraisers in the neighborhood, the rest
visitors from Fort Abraham Lincoln and Bis
mark. The Mandan boys and others put up a
joke on the Bismarkers just before the Fourth.
It was known by our boys that the Bis-ed
marckers were the possessors of a cannon,
while we had none. In the stilly hour of
night a change took place. Mandan had the
cannon and Bismarck none. The way that
cannon boomed from the dawning of the
Fourth until late next night was a caution to
Bismarckers to guard their guns better in
the future. The day of the Fourth was a
clear and pleasant one here. About ten
o'clock in the morning the people assem
bled in a beautiful grove adjoining the town
where everything was prepared by the differ
ent committees for their entertainment.
The programme for the day was faithfully
carried out by the management in an excep
tionabiy able and to all satisfactory manner.
It was as follows:
Reading of the declaration of indepen
dence by M. J. Edgerly.
Vocal musicBy Mandan Choir.
OrationBy P. O. Chilstrom.
Music by Choir, and speeches by citizens
and invited guests.
2 o'clock p. M.Pony race purse $3.00,
2:30 p. M.Foot race purse $2.00.
3 p. M.Horse race purse $10.00.
3:30 p, M.Juvenile foot race purse
4 p. si.Boat race purse $2.00.
5 p. M.Sack race purse $5.00.
In all of above races there were many
contestants. The pony and horse races were
especially exciting and were hotly contested.
The qpding race, in sacks, was a ludi
crous spectacle, and the sight of six fellows
tied up in gunny bags trying to make speed
over the prairie made people laugh until
their sides ached.
During all the day the best decorum was
observed on the part of all who attended,
and while it was a frontier's gathering, every
one's conduct was such, and all things were
carried on so smoothly and pleasantly, that
onr large eastern cities might well copy
therefrom. The citizens all came with a de
termination to celebrate the Fourth in a
creditable manner, and to have as good and
joyous a time as possible, and it was carried
out to the letter.
The festivities ended with a grand dance
at Gill's, Hail, Mandan, which was largely
attended. SWEETBBIEB.
Vote for a State Fair.
(Fergus Falls Advocate.]
The question that concerns the people is
"Shall there be a State Fair?" Bill King's
side show is no State institution: it is only a
concern gotten up for Bill King's private
benefit and that dose not concern the public
whether it is a success or not, nor is he in
any manner responsible to the public. The
State Fair is a matter in which the whole
people of the State is interested, and which,
as a public benefit, should be upheld by the
State. We do not want to see the institution
"busted" in the interest of Bill Eing or any
other set of men, for it is as beneficial to the
State as au "exposition" is to nation. We
desire, with the GLOBE and Dispatch, to have
a State Fair this year, next year and for all
to come. We care not in which oity it
is held, for it must almost of neccessity be
held in St. Paul or Minneapolis, but in
whichever it is held the citizens must sub
scribe liberally of their cash, the Pioneer
Press notwithstanding, as is done in all
other parts of the world for similar objects,
for in whatever city it is held that city de
rives far laiger gains then its contributions
amount to. We vote for a State Fair and a
reorganization of its officials. As, perforce,
it must be at St. Paul, let the people or St.
Paul do for it as it has never done before.
What "Protection" is Doing for Canada.
Another result of the high-tariff policy of
Canada is set forth thus by the Toronto
Globe: "Dundas, once the Birmingham of
Canada, has its workshops almost idle. The
great screw factory is as if it had never ex
isted. Thefiresare all blown out. Boiler
making is nearly a thing of the past. There
area few men still at work in the foundry,
but we fear that this also will soon be de
serted. The cheap breakfast, the high and
constant wages, in fact, all the great prom
ises of good things at hand seem to be mere
moonshine. The mechanics are some of
them going West, some of them half starv
ing, and many feeling desperate. A great
overdose of protection has done it all. It is
well the people begin to see that Canads was
utterly deceived."
Boston Follows the Example of the "Globe.'
[Chicago Times.]
It is actually a fact that a newspaper was
issued in Boston on the morning after the
Fourth. The explanation is easy. The Her
ald saw that the people desired the news on
the 5th of July as well as on any other day
of the year. The papers'Which suspend pub
lication because of a holiday are papers that
can be spared.
