BT. PAUL, FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 1881.
Senator Voorhkes will probably be
permitted to "submit a few remarks" on
the recent attempt of the national banks
to intimidate Congress in the matter of
the funding bill. He has a fruitful theme,
and it is to be hoped he will not omit to
place Sir. Hayes where he belongs in that
connection.
The Democrats in the Senate should
make uo factious opposition to the elec
tion of the officers named by the Republi
can caucus save the candidate for ser
geant-at-arms. It is their duty, however,
to do all in their power to defeat his elec
tion. If they do otherwise they will be
come parties to the consummation of the
most corrupt bargain that ever disgraced
a legislative body. The office is a part of
the price exacted by Mahone for his per
fidy to the men who chose him to the
Senate. Under no circumstances should
this bargain be ratified, and the Demo
cratic Senators will be justified in oppos
ing the election if it consumes the entire
time of the Senate for two years to come.
Ridiilebi-rgf.r, who was the candidate of
Senator Mahone, has been elected sergeant-at
arms of the Senate. It does not follow that
there was any bargain with the Virginian Sena
tor, or that he sold his vote for such appoint
ment, though this will be charged by his ene
mies. Such an agreement would be disgrace
ful to all engaged in it. The truth doubtless
is that Mahone has endeavored to cecure a
place for his friend, just as every other Senator
seeks to obtain positions for his follower*. In
the distribution of places, the Republicans
would naturally wish to give some to the
South, and have deemed it just and politic to
choose the candidate presented by a Southern
Senator who voted with them In organizing
the Senate. — Milwaukee Republican
Of course no one suspects Mahone of
selling his vote. If a night scavenger re
ceives a sum of money from a gentleman
who has just been cleaning up his premi
ses it does not follow that he has been
doing any dirty work. If the readers of
the Republican, however, can swallow
such a statement, they are fully qualified
to cla; State support in the asylums for
feeblo miuded.
THE NEW YORK COLLECTORSHIP.
The old quarrel between the executive
and Roscoe Conkling seems likely to
break out, and prove a source of infinite
trouble to President Garfleld as it was to
Mr. Hayes. For some weeks it has been
supposed that the President aad the New
York Senator were on the best of terms.
One of Lord Roscoe's friends was ap
pointed postmaster general, and various
other smaller concessions to his whims
and his interests were made. Conkling,
too, condescended to call at the "White
House on several occasions and eat salt at
the Presidential table. These facts have
led the public to suppose that peace
would reign during the present adminis
tration between the President and the
New York dictator.
Such hopes of amity have, however,
been dashed to the ground, and by Gar
fleld's hand at that. On Wednesday, he
sent to the Senate the nomination of Mr.
Robertson, an avowed enemy of Conk
ling's, to be collector of the port of New
York. This office is in many respects
the most important in the gift of the
President. The salary and perquisites,
amount to more than the income of the
President himself, and the patronage at
the disposal of the incumbent is simply
immense. By a judicious employment
of this patronage, the collector can con
trol caucuses and conventions, legisla
tures and executive officers. It is the
prize coveted by all aspiring politicians
in the Empire State, for it assures them
of preferment in whatever direction their
ambition lies. It is the prize over which
Hayes and Conkling quarrelled four
years ago, and over which they have
been squabbling ever since. After a
long and bitter fight, Hayes got the best
of his adversary, removed Conk] ing's
friend, the present Governor of the
State, and to emphasize his victory, also
decapitated his next best champion, the*
present Vice President of the United
States. Conkling, however, contended
wonderfully against great odds, and really
defeated the executive by placing Cornell
and Arthur in the places they now oc
cupy. (
Every one has supposed that in return
for his labors in the campaign that re
sulted in Garfleld' s election, Conkling
would be permitted to dispose of the of
fice of collector of the port of New
York, or, at least, that the office would
not be filled by one of his avowed ene
mies. But, inspired by some genius
whether good or evil, time alone will de
termine—Garfield has administered a
stinging blow in the face ef Milord Ros
coe. It is equivalant to a challenge
to mortal combat, and in the battle that
is sure to ensue, one or the other of these
dignitaries must bite the dust. Conkling
has had hard work during the past four
years to maintain his supremacy at home.
A man less talented, less fertile of re
sources, would have been utterly crushed.
He will have a still harder time of it
during the ensuing four years, if the
nomination of Mr.Robertson is confirmed,
for there is nothing that so weakens a
public man as symptoms that his influ
ence with the appointing power is on the
wane. Garfield, too, is a stronger antag
onist than Hayes. He has not been in
ducted into office under a cloud, hut is
sustained by the whole of his party, be
sides having the best wishes of a ma
jority of the Democrats. He is made of
sterner stuff than Hayes, and if his path
way is crossed will stive battle to the
bitter end. The only hope for Conkling,
therefore, is to defeat the confirmation of
his enemy, and thus to disarm his oppo
sition.
What lias induced Garfield to cross
swords with Conkling thus early in his
administration, is as yet a mystery. It
is a hazardous thing to do. ~ It means a
war to tha knife and the knife to the hilt.
The small crumbs of pap that have been
thrown to Conkling thus far, will not
conciliate him for the loss of the fattest
morsel of all. He might have endured
its loss if it had gone to some one not
identified with his sworn enemies* But
it has been placed 1 where it can be
used to disarm him in future political
contests, and defeat his most fondly cher
ished purposes. This he tannot • endure,
but will no doubt exert hie utmost en
deavors to defeat the President. He is
fortunate in being chairman of the com
mittee to which the nomination will be
referred,. } He will also have ; the . support
of his henchman, the Vice President of
the United States. As but few of the
other appointments iv . other sections of
the country have yet been made, he can
probably form combinations with : other
Senators, that will considerably strength
en him. It is no mean : task f>r him to
defeat the President of the United States,
nor is it an ea?y matter for the President
to get the best of. the senior. New Tork
Senator. Democrats can afford to look
on at the fight, enjoy ,the fun from a
perfectly disinterested standpoint. To
them it is simply a repetition of the fight
between ßetsey and the ; bear. " :

In veatlgmtlns; the Charges of ' Sectarianism
-•■> In the Su'€lood Normal School.
.. Senator C. *. official reporter for
the joint committee of the House and . Seriate
appointed to investigate the charges of sec
terianwm.pnrferre'd against the managers of
the^ta^cqrniat school at St. Cloud, arrived
•in St. Paul fresh from the labors of the investi
gation yesterday. .!.::: 1 ,
A Globb reporter had a chat with Senator
Powers last night, and gleaned the following:
The charger of lectarianism were preferred
by the Rev. Mr. McNiff, a Methodist clergy
man of St. Cloud. The latter alleged in brief
that the religious services at the Normal school
were largely controlled by Presbyterian aus
pices, to the detriment of other denomina
tions.
The committee appointed to investigate the
charges were Senators Officer and Buck, and
Messrs. Denny, Wilson and Bearleß of the
House.
Mr. Searles officiated as chairman of the
committee and Benator Powers as the official
reporter.
The investigation commenced last Tuesday
at noon and was concluded Wednesday. The
principal witnesses were Rev. McNiff and
ministers of the Baptist, Methodist, Presby
terian and other denominations, together with
a large number of the pupils and the faculty
of the school.
The testimony showed that the alleged
charges were mere rumors without foundation
in fact. It was shown that the meetings un
der Presbyterian auspices were more largely
attended than the others, for the sole reason
that the other denominations were governed
by extreme neglect and apathy.
A number of students deposed that, while
their spiritual nourishment had not been
drawn from Presbyterian sources, they attend
ed the meeting of this denomination for the
reason that It was the only sect that attempted
to hold anything like a meeting.
The evidence showed that the Presbyterian
meetings were the most popular simply be
cause they had woiked up a boom, and that
the paucity of attendance and lack of interest
in the others arose from want of interest in
the spiritual advisers.
The committee made a verbal report to ths
effect that .none of the charges had been sus
tained

A PLEASANT EVENT.
The Marriage of Fmrfk Carleton and Hlm
HeHfo Joßfin.
An event of no small magnitude in society
circle* transpired yesterday afternoon, being
the marriage of a well-known lady and gentle
man of Minneapolis *nd St. Paul. The high
contracting parties were Mr. Frank Carleton,
fi-clerk of the munlc ipal court and at present
an attache of his excellency's, Gov. Pills
bury's, offlc*, and Miss Nellie Jones, daughter
of Judgf E. S. Jones, of Minneapolis.
Both parties are well known favorites in the
society circles of the respective cities, and the
affair will occasion no little surprise, as the
wedding was unexpected, and strictly on the
quiet.
The ceremony. wii» performed at the residence
of the bride's parents in Minneapolis, and
none but the members of the family and a very
few friends were in attendance.
After the ceremony, which was performed
just before nightfall, the couple were felici
tated by their friends and all present sat down
to an elegant spread. The presents were
sumptous, rich and costly, and abounded
in silver service of the most unique and beau
tiful workmanship. Map and wife left last
evening for a brief tour in the East.
Holder* of Ballroad Bonds.
The fact that the old $5,000,000 railroad
bonds of the State of Minnesota are not all
held by bloated bondholders, but that a cob.
siderable percentage of them are held by
parties who. received them in pay for work
actually performed in the construction of the
railroad fines for -which the bonds were issued,
was conclusively proven by the appearance
yesterday beforerthe supreme court clerk of Mrs.
Bosnia lnes Kellett, uf Springfield, 111. Her
husband, now ttearf, was a civil engineer on
the old Minneapolis & Cedar Valley rail
road, (now known as the Minnesota &
lowa division of the 'J. M. * St. P. railway)
and in settlement for. services rendered re
ceived bonds of the State of the face value of
$10,070. Mr*. Kellett was accompanied by
Gen. J. B. Sanborn, as her attorney, aad after
furnishibs evidence as to her identity as the
widow or the aforesaid Kellett, to whom the
bond* were transferred, deposited the same for
liquidation under the terms of the act of the
late legislature.

A short time since the Globe announced the dis

county. The work will be in charge of Mr. Hugh
MoDougall, secretary and agent of thn company. We
understand that all the machinery for the mill has
been shipped, aad that part of it has already arrived

ists who have Invested in the "gold district" have
not lost faith, but were willing U> go ahead and fully
teat the vein. We learn from Mr McDougail that
recent assays made ara entirely satisfactory to the
company.
Hugh MoDougall and Mao Miner, of the Herman
Mlniug Company, arrived from Chicago on last
Thursd ay's train. They have gone ont to Miners
viile to commence operations, and get ready to put
up the company's stamp mill.
PERILS OF LEGISLATION.
Wabashatc County Eu+liered anil No One
Known How It Happened.
To the Editor of the Globe.
Wabashaw, March 23, 1881.— In this,
Wabashaw county, "hell is to pay and no
pitch hot," fora mortal fact, over the legis
lative apportionment bill, as eigned by the
governor and printed for distribution.
It seems that the original draft allowed one
Senator and three Represenatives to be elected
within certain described districts. This, how
ever, did not suit a majority of the delegation,
so the section relating to this county was
changed, giving the same number, but pro
vided for their election from the
county at large, and passed the House in that
state. In the Senate it went through all
right as far as first and second readings. At
the third reading and final passage, the Sena
tor from this district or county was absent,
and there is no telling the language used on
final passage, but as it now stands, the bill
provides for districts and not as the delegate
desired, nor as it passed the House, i. c., to be
elected at large.
Naturally, the members of the delegation
are surprised, and trying to find "a leedle out"
whose particular woodchuck it was to cause
the alteration m the bill on final passage.
Here, and at Lake City, the inhabitants
are decidedly wormy, not to say wrathy, over
the matter, which the same is a general theme
of conversation. All sorts of ways and means
by which it might have been done are suggebt
ed; one among them, in effect, that a certain
representative in the southwestern part of the
county, who was the originator of the bill as
it now stands, played it fine on the "buoys"
after acquiescing in the change, and this "hea
then Chinee" stole a march, thereby getting
his bill through. Another theory is that dur
ing the fire and hasty removal the amend
ments, which are always tacked loosely on the
original bills, became detached and lost while
in transit and in hands of the enrolling or other
clerk, so that when enrolled the bill was
in its original state, and thus received the sig
nature of the governor. This latter seems
plausible enough.
But the worst feature of the whole matter
is that one town in the county, that of Mount
Pleasant, is entirely ignored. Not mentioned
or districted in the bill, and the conundrum is,
whether they are disfranchised, or which or
what? and as this town is the home of the
invulnerable, the eminent and former Senator
P. H. Rahilly, he is more than likely to be
heard from with a howl of fraud, personality
towards him, etc., and there will be music in
the air for a certainty.
The bill don't assay worth a cent, and several
Interesting points arise, defying the opinion
of the legal and other minds of authority
In the county, as well as the new attorney
general. Does it leave Mount Pleasant out in
the cold altogether? How ase the members to
be elected from this county? Does it not in
validate the whole apportionment bill? Kill
it deader than the Cardiff giant, etc., etc., etc.?
I tell you its a stunner.
Senator Lawrence was in St. Paul yesterday
seeking advice and authority, but was unable
to secure any. It is a stupendous blunder and
will bother our worthy governor worse to
work out the problem "than has all the ap
pointments within his gift.
Can the Globe solve the matter; find out
whose fault it was the change was made; how
does it effect the town of Mount Pleasant; the
county of Wabashaw, and the State at large?
Can the bill stand as passed excepting as to
Wabashaw county and that county work
under the old law?
And again, is the bill as signed by the gov
ernor and printed, a law, inasmuch as it did
not pass the House in that shape, even if It
did the Senate, which is in dispute, or is it
null and void, not being enacted and passed by
the legislature — the two branches?
Querist.
Look Out for Stones on Your Heads.
To the Editor of the Globe.
It will be observed that since the late acci
dent to a person on West Third street, result
ing from the fall of a cornice stone, which
nearly crushed the unfortunate man's skull,
cautious people ar« taking the middle of the
streets, muddy as they arc. The city should
at once compel the owners of buildings to re
move these nuisances, and prevent their crea
tion in the future. A number of similar accidents
have happened within the last few years, and
more are sure to happen, as the limestone
composing these projections is rapidly disinte
grating by the action of the weather. The
owners of buildings should look to this, as no
man has a right to erect a building in 6uch a
manner as to endanger the lives of passers-by.
I look for heavy suits fo.- damages in the fu
ture unless this imminent danger is speedily
abated. It is not safe for any one now to walk
Third street. If the passer will look up at the
building where the above accident happened,
opposite Drs. Stewart & Wheaton's office,
he will see that several of such stones have
already fallen and others are soon likely to
follow suit. Why don't the city council take
speedy action on the ordinance long ago drawn
by City Attorney Murray and laid before it,
creating a board of building commissioners?
The Fatal Accident at Merriam Junction
Moses Rice,* a commercial traveler, from
Milwaukee, lost his life yesterday at Merriam
Junctlon,in the same manner in which Adams,
another commercial traveler, lost his life at
Kasson twelve or thirteen years ago. Rice
was changing cars at the Junction, to go
south on the M. & St. L. train. He stopped
on the depot platform too long, talking with
friends, until the train was moving out and
jumped towards a car platform, but missed
and fell on the track, so that, the following
car cut off his legs and broke in his
side and chest. He breathed when
taken up but died soon after, being taken to
Jordan for surgical aid, and yesterday his body
was taken to Minneapolis. Deceased was in
the employ of a Milwaukee clothing house and
leaves a family.
By direction of a brother-in-law, who resides
at r*aribault, the remains of Rice were pre
pared for burial and were then forwarded to
Milwaukee by the train of last night He was
about 89 years old and was widely known in
his line of trade and among traveling men.
His surviving family consists of his widow
and five children.

on to the ferry boat, to be saluted by Holton
as "Doc.," and to be pointed out by VanDusen

the boat and this point was used by Van
Dusen to impress on the deck hands the fact

THE CAMPBELLS ARE PARTED.] t
He, She or It Belmont Said to Have Been the
Indirect Cause.
On the Bth of February last Melvina A. Campbell
commenced a suit for divorce from her husband,
George C . Campb 11. The testimony of the plaintiff,
which was taken before Albert Johnson, referee,
shows the following state of affairs : Mrs. Campbell
states that she U thi tj-seven years old and her hus
band 48 ; that they were married in this city on Oct.
?3, 1869, and soon after the marriage her husband
began to be cross, peevish aud hateful, and within
two years after marriage and ever since he has treat
ed her in a cruel and inhuman manner, such as to
make her life one of continued and almost unbroken
and unbearable hardship and misery; that he has
called her every vie, disgus ing and obscene name
he o uld think of, and frequently choked and
beat her; that such beatings occurred in 1874, on
January 1, 1879, and in September, 1880. A son of
the plaintiff by a former marriage, named Eugene
O. Barry, testified to being a witness to the beatings,
and of frequently hearing the defendant call the
plaintiff v.le and obscene names.
Toe court after hearing the evidence, and the de
fendant making no answer, granted a decree of di
vorce, and gave to the plaintiff her former name.
The parties to the action are well known residents
of the lower town, and lately have been the subject
of much talk, owing to the individual, Leon Mary
Belmoiit, being an inmate of the house. The re
port in current that the suit grew out of the "friend
ship" of Mrs. Cainpb.ll for Belmont, which Btate of
affairs Campbell will not allow.

Piles.
Piles arc frequently preceded by a sens* 1 of
weight in the back, loins and lower part of
the abdomen, causing the patient to suppose
he has some affection of th<? kidneys or neigh
boring organs. At times symptoms of in
digestion are present, as flatulency, BMtttMM
of the stomach, etc. A moisture like ins
piration, producing a very disagreeable itch
ing, particularly at night after getting v-;irm
in bed, is a very common attendant.
Internal, external and itching. piles
yield at once on the application of
Dr. Bosanko's Pile Remedy, which acts
directly upon the parts affected, absorbing
the Tumors, allaying the intense itching and
effecting a permanent cure where all other
remedies have failed. Do not delay until the
drain on the system produces permanent disa
bility, but try it and be cured. Price 50 ♦•••nts.
Ask your druggist for it, and when yon cin
not obtain it of htm, we will send it, prepaid,
on receipt of price. Address The Dr. Bosnnko
