New York, May 31.— The Telegram' a A'bany special says: From the appearance of hings at this moment a prolonged session su^s inevitable. It would be no surprise to any o .? who understands the situation if bal loting went on till the Fourth of July or over. The half-breed 6 are quite as determined as the stalwarts, and unless a compromise is reached it Is impossible to see any way aut of the present tangle. When Conkling, Platt, Arthur and the rest failed to come up on Sunday, the half-breeds who were here exclaimed: "We told you they wouldu't come back again, for they are afraid." A leading State ollicer who was standing by said: "I tell you" these men dou't know Ros coe Conkling. He did not enter this contest without full appreciation of what he was to do and he did not go into it to be beaten. Mr. Conkling is a candidate and he will wiu - and don't you forget it." An assemblyman who spent Sunday with Gen. Arthur said: "Conkling is in this race to stay and if you knew the points that I know, you would agree with me that his elec tion can't be prevented, and that it will be without Democratic help too. It's all non sense to talk about Conkling's bargaining with the Democrats." A friend of Conkling's was heard to say to day: "Conkling means to make and hold a deadlock and in the fall elections make a per sonal canvass of the State more complete than he has yet ever made. By this means he might have another chance of being able to secure a legislature that would re-elect him in January next. Buccess achieved in 6iich a contest would lift him to the highest pinacle in Amer ican political history and put him in the field as a winning candidate for the Presidential nomination in 1884." Platt said to a reporter this forenoon: "I think our prospects for re-election are more than good. I believe we shall go back to Washington." The Post's Albany special says: "The anti- Coukliugites will attempt no concentration until after Conkling's votes melt away. In such case it is possible that the administration men may get eighty-one votes and may elect two candidates, although It's yet too early to predict any such result." Carpenter says: "Conkling's ironclad votes will stay by him." Senator Robertson says; "He should not be surprised if an actual election ir held before the week is over." The Express says: "Should a dead-lock continue until the end of next week, an ad journment will take place and the governor is quoted as saying he will not re-convene the legislature, but let the dispute be settled at the polls." The Commercial says: The half-breeds are very boastful to-day, and some of them claim they will be able to elect two Senators in place of Conkliug and Platt this week. It is not their purpose to develop their plans in to day's voting, but before Thursday they say they expect to be able to decide upon two can didates. After Conkling and Platt are dis posed of, they say they will ad dress themselves to the classing of candidates. The fact that every one of them has a candidate of his own, will, it is thought, 6tand in the way of a 6peedy election of two administration Senators. They utterly reject all thought of returning Conkling. At one time some of them were disposed to sup port him if he would drop Platt, but all now declare both must go together. They believe a desire to be on the winning side will induce more desertions from Conkling, and that it will be easy for them to elect. To-day they do not seem to believe the deadlock will be con tinued. Out of the lino . New Yokk, May 31.— Gov. Cornell has written a letter, declining to be a candidate for United States Senator. The agent of the New York Associated Press, at Albany, telegraphs to-night it is universally conceded Conkling is entirely out of the race, and that a gentleman" who had beeu closeted with the leaders for an hour had no hesitancy in admitting it was but a question whit candidates the party should select to meet with unanimity among the Republicans. Cornell and Depew are the names the gentleman heard on every side, but the letter of declination of the former is be lieved to put an end to his nomination. Some are urging the names of Cornell and Crowley. The latter was Platt's antagonist at the former election. COUNTING CHICKENS. The Tribune's Albany 6ays: The best po litical judges here are inclined to look for the election of two Republican Senators before the legislature adjourns, and the Democrat who was yesterday swiming ou bladders in a sum mer sea of glory finds himself strangled to day. The probability is that the next legislature will not be consulted regarding the successors to Conkling ana Plat*. To-morrow's ballot will be watched with great interest. If :■ Platt should lose any of the votes he had to-day it would be only reasonable to expect the choice *of one Senator before the end of the week. JUDGE ROBERTSON said to-day that after to day's disclosures of Platt's weakness, he should look for the elec tion of one Senator Thursday. On the other hand, some members expect to-morrow's bal lot wili be much like that of to-day, except for the probable concetration of adminis tration men, and do not expect marked changes if there should be only one ballot. The practical abolition of the caucus, which has taken place, raises a new difficulty for candidates. In caucus 54 votes would nomi nate and thus secure an election. In a ballot without a caucus 81 votes must be had to elect a candidate and it is easy to understand this will be up hill work for almost any man unless there is a general stampede. A leader of the administration men said yes terday he thought that when any candidate received sixty-five votes that would settle the matter and the rest would follow immedi ately. Ex- Marshal Payne 6aid to a Tribune cor respondent, who asked him if Conkling would withdraw: "Oh, no. His friends could not allow him to withdraw if he wanted to." You don't still think he can be elected? "Yes, I do, Conkling will run, and let me ell you something. Put down this proph sy and remember it: If Conkling is beaten ,he Republican party will have won its last victory in the State and nation. He has won every Republican victory in this State for 15 years. He made the last two Presidents single handed and alone." INDEFINITELY POSTPONED. The stalwart Republican caucus, which was to have been held to-night, has been indefinitely postponed.

Stiefel the Patriot. [Volkszeitung, May 31.] Hungry and thirsty and tired, the veterans returned night before last from their patriotic mission, decorating the graves of their fall en comrades. When the command, "break rankß", had been given.Sergeant Stiefel of the Sixth Minnesota volunteers, stepped to the front and made the following impressive little speech: "Comrades, I am hungry and thirsty and al most tired to death. I have reason to believe that you feel about the same. I propose, therefore, that we go to Stiefel's -Place. What there is in the shape of ham, cheese, sausage, wine and beer in the house, is at your command— free of charge. Comrades, soldiers, and boys, will you accept my proposition?" One would think they would accept, the way they cheered for Stiefel. The ranks were reformed and with the the Great Union Band ahead the veterans marched to Stiefel's place, corner of Fourth and Wacouta streets. No graves were decorated there, but witfi every social glass, and every bite of delicacies so liberally famished, their patriotic feelings increased in intensity. The Great Union band played some of their choicest airs, everybody was happy, and the general verdict was that Stiefel's hos pitable entertainment was the crowning act of the festival.

Mrs. Weber claims that the only valid will left by her husband was made about two years before his death, while her son con tests the provisions of a latter will, which cannot be found. The case is badly mixed. THE LONDON HORROR The Idea of a Monument Abandoned — Queen Victoria Expresses Her Sympathy. London, Ont., May 31.— The citizens' com mittee decided almost unanimously to abandon the idea of a public monument, which, it was said, would but perpetuate the memory of our own humiliation and blundering. But it was decided to erect a substantial memorial in the sliapa of permanent relief to those made desti tute by accident, and to accept outside offer ings to such funds. Mayor Campbell received the following telegram to-day from Major Dewlnton, governor-general's secretary: "Quebec, May 30. — The queen has ex pressed, through the governor-geueral, her great sorrow on hearing of the accident which has so recently occurred at London, and desires to express her deep sympathy with the bereaved families.

The stone crusher employed on Broadway to break the large amount of stone being used in making the concrete foundations for the Northern Pacific headquarters building, is a curiosity for those who pass that way.

The arrest was made by Officer Kennealy, who testified that defendant had run an engine over the Jackson street crossing at a rate of speed dangerous to both life and property. It is a well known fact that the ordinance in this re spect is daily subject to the most flagrant vio lations. Judge Burr alluded to the reckless and wonderous rate of speed at which engines were run through the city, and defendant was fined $100 or 90 daye. Sentence was sus pended. Good Looking Immigrants. By the morning train of yesterday from Chi oago, ovei the Chicago, St. Paul and Omaha line, a party of about thirty Norwegians, bound for Fisher's Landing, arrived here- They were quarteaed for the day in the St. Paul & Manitoba company's immigrant house, (BlnbE. and in their wanderings about town attracted consideaable attention because of their style of dress. They were mostly young people, and all had an attractive look of good health, despite their long journey and its usual consequences. The men, besides head and foot gear and occasion ally an over garment, were dressed in pants, the tops of which button about the neck. The women, bright-eyed and strong, good-natured folk, wore cotton or linen under garments, open at the front, and loosely buttoned at the throat; heavy woolen or felt petticoats, dark in color, reaching from the waist to about the knees; long black stockings; and brown leather, stout, low shoes. These people came from Christiansund, or near that seaport of Norway, and had their desti nation determined by the fact that about a hundred of their old country neighbors and friends, who came out about three years ago, are Bettled at and near Fisher's Landing. They proceeded on their way by the St. Paul & Man itoba train of last evening. What the City Ought to Do. Considering the heavy investments of the railroad companies in permanent building im provements in that part of the city, and the immense amount of heavy hauling to and from the freight depots, railroad men claim that the city fathers are dealing unkindly with them and are unmindful of the public- interests in not promptly grading and improving Fourth street below Jackson, and in not re quiring the lots along that street which are covered with stagnant, stinking water to be filled up above the water level. Any one who will walk down Fourth street these days will acknowledge that the city is derelict. The filled street is three or four feet above grade opposite the St. Paul <fe Omaha company's building. In wet weather the mud is deep and sticky and a decent street crossing cannot be maintained. When the sun begins to dry up the mud it stinks abominably, and when it is dried it is turned to a fine, nasty dust, which penetrates everywhere. Opposite this same fine building is a stagnant pond or pool of water, covering two or three lots, which is a disease breeder, and offensive to the nostrils of everybody in the neighborhood. The health authorities of the city ought to inspect the whole neighbor hood, and demand such improvements as are necessary for the public health. The city council and board of public works ought to move promptly in the matter of street im provements in all that part of the city between Jackson and Broadway. Third and Fourth, Sibley, Wacouta, Rosabel and Broadway should be brought to grade, provided with good side walks and be paved this season, as soon as the work can be done. And the low swamp lots, since they cannot be easily drained, should at once be filled. A walk about that section during the busy and hot hours of the day is recommended to all city officers. Lake Superior Railroad Projects. [Special Telegram to the Globe.J Duluth, May 31. — Mr. A. A. Jackson, of Janesville, Wis., director of the Chicago, Portage & Lake Superior railway, and A. B. Schofield, chief engineer of the same road, arrived at Duluth this morning, and will immediately put an engineer party in the field to make a complete 6urvey to the North Wisconsin Junction,seven ty miles from here, and grading will probably commence before snow flies.

The steamer Josephine, of the Diamond Jo line, arrived from below at 1:30 a. m. yester day with a deck and barge load of freight and a considerable number of passen gers, and went out at 2 p. m. with a lot of miscellaneous freight. The big Mary Morton, of the samej line, which passed Dubuqueat3 p. m., Monday, is expected to start out on her return trip at 7 p. m., to day. The Grand Pacific, of the St. Louis & St. Paul line, which came in at 4p. m.

Her barges will be promptly loaded, so far as the wheat will go, but there will still be room for considerable quantities ef flour or other products which would be salable to the Scots, and Capt. Reaney is trying to secure enough other freights to fill the barges full. The river has raised six or seven inches since the late rains. Duluth Ship News.

An Out race Under the Form of Law. In 1876 proceedings were begun in Washing ton against Messrs. Grant & Brosseau, of St. Paul, for centering one hundred and sixty acres of government land with bogus half breed script. The transaction was fixed as oc. curriug in 1874 while the firm dissolved in 1873. In spite of this, Mr. W. H. Grant was indicted for conspiring to defraud the gov ernment and dragged to Washington. He employed Messrs. Sanborn & King to defend him, and promptly gave $10,000 bail. From that day to this, Mr. Grant has been demand in g a trial , but without success until last week. Applications to reduce the bail, to dismiss the proceedings or give a trial, were all ineffectual, but last week Mr. Grant's attorneys did succeed in obtain ining a hearing. The trial took place, and Mr. Grant was promptly acquitted, as every one who knew of the circumstances was aware he would be. The Outrage perpetrated is too gross to be properly characterized. An innocent man, held for five years, with criminal proceedings hanging over him, and no opportunity to vin dicate himself, is a fine commentary upon the style of administering justice.

THE CUSS OF '81. Class-Day Exercises at the University of Minnesota-The Largest Graduating; Class In the History of the Institution- Planting the Tree. The class day exercises of the graduating class of the university of Minnesota took place yesterday afternoon in the presence of a large assemblage of the friends of the institution and friends of the pupils. The university chapel -was crowded to its utmost capacity, the major part of those present being ladies. The platform was tastefully draped with huge flags, and profusely decorated with choice flowers and plants arranged with great taste. The graduating class numbered twenty-seven, twenty of the number being gentlemen and the remainder ladies. Only twenty-one, however, participated in yesterday's exercises, owing to a n-isunderstanding among the members as to the disposition of the honors. It appears that the Chi P6i so ciety undertook the preparation of the pro gramme and ignored several of the members of the class, who rebelled and refused to take part in the day's proceedings. The recalci trant members were Messrs. H. J. Broughton, H. O. Chowan, G. 8. Grimes, J. Jennison, C. E. Kent and F. B. Snyder. None of them graced the occasion with their presence. The graduating class consisted of the following ladies and gentlemen: G. B. Alton, H. O. Chowen, S. G. Anderson, Miss L. M. Craft, O. B. Baldwin, Miss E. E. Grimes, F. L. Bardwell, G. O. Grimes, H. H. Bonniwell, W. E. Harrington, H. J. Broughton, E. Hough, W. C. Bryant, J. Jennison, Miss D. Burnes, C. E. Kent, Miss M. A. Campbell, W. L. King, Miss E. E.Macs, D. A. Locke, Miss S. E. Palmer, S. A. Looke, B. Phillips, Jr., W. H. Savidge, Q. J. Rowley, F. B. Snyder, Miss L. R. Williams. The audience being seated, the Seventh regi ment band, stationed in the gallery, struck up an overture, during which the class entered and took seats on the platform in a semi-cir cle. Miss Sarah E. Palmer wa6 introduced and read the class history. It was a well written, sprightly composition, and evoked considerable laughter at the lively sallies with which reference was made to the foibles of the individual members. The applause this lady received at its close was well merited. The song of '81 followed, which was suc ceeded by the poem by William Cullen Bryant, an effort that displayed considerable poetical ability. It was recited in a clear, full tone of voice and attentively listened to throughout. Mr. W. L. King delivered the class oration, a scholarly, carefully prepared production of excellent merit. The prophecy, by Mr. Q. J. Rowley, was a humorous metric effort that caused considerable merriment, especially in the class, where the peculiarities of the members "were best understood. The hits were palpable ones and all taken in good part. MissLMaß. Williams presented to the faculty an elegantly bound ode book, in which the class odes had been inscribed, and in a few well chosen words expressed the hope that the book would be preserved in the university and that the classes of the future would make of it a repository in which to preserve their po stical tributes. Mr. W. H. Bavidge, president of the class, then presented to the class of 1882 the class knife, and made a brief address to his classmates, who were 60 soon to part, perhaps forever. While the band discoursed some excellent music the audience adjourned to the campus outside. The clouds that had been threaten ing all day had cleared away, and the sun shone beautifully upon the assembled multitude. A cool breeze was stirring through the trees, and all nature seemed smiling. After a march by the band Mr. H. H. Bonniwell, a son of W. T. Bonniwell, delivered the tree oration. It was in many respects a superior production, and was delivered in an eloquent, masterly manner that showed the speaker to possess not only a well cultivated mind but a natural gift of ora tory such as few can boast ef. The tree be ing thus formally dedicated, the class united in a bong, the hatchet was appropriately buried by Mr. 0. D. Baldwin, aad the class day exer cises were over, and the company dnpersed, well pleased with the entertainment afforded them. This class is the largest ever graduated from tke university of Minnesota. Six years ago it began with sixty-eight members, but year by year the number has been diminished till the present time, when there are but twen ty-seven. In scholarship it is probably the most creditable in the history of the institu tion. Last evening the band of the Seventh regi ment gave a concert on the university grounds that was attended by a large concourse of citi zens. The programme embraced ten well se lected numbers, and was keenly enjoyed by all. To-day is alumni day at the university. The meeting will be held at 2 o'clock p. m., and there will no doubt be a general gathering of all the alumni in this vicinity. THE ST. CBOIX ACCIDENT. Gen. Flower Investigates and Revokes the Captain's License for Disobeying Orders. Having concluded his examination into the disaster to the steamboat Knapp, at Rock Island, on the river St. Croix, on Sunday, the 15th of May, by which two lives were lost, Gen. Flower, inspector and supervisor of steamboats, was engaged, yesterday in pre paring his report to be forwarded to the secretary of the treasury. In making his conclusions, which form the basis of his report, Gen. Flower finds that so far as the accident is concerned, per se, it was not owing to any carelessness or misconduct upon the part of the captain or officers. He thinks, however, that perhaps an error of judgment was made by the pilot in attempt ing to run the steamer and barge through so narrow a chute with a full head of steam. The testimony, which is voluminous, and carefully taken, shows that the death of the men was directly owing to injuries received by striking the barge, the shock being such that they were unable to help themselves when thrown overboard. To this cause is attributed the fact that they made no effort to catch the floats or life pre servers which were thrown to their succor. The report finds the captain culpable in but one respect only, viz: His neglect and viola tion of instructions in failing to carry two life boats; in giving the permit for the excur sion, Gen. Flower gave explicit orders that the steamer'must carry two life boats. While the question of one ortwo bos'.* has no bearing whatever upon the accident, still he neglected to comply with a direct order, and for failure in this respect Gen. Flower has revoked his license as master. In arriving at the latter conclusion Gen. Flower has adhered to the spirit of a very un pleasant but stern duty, and although it may seem like harsh treatment to Capt. Thompson, it establishes a good precedent which will work incalculable good in the future. Swindled by the Bogus Check Game. The train which left St. Paul yesterday morning on the St. Paul & Manitoba road for Fargo contained among the passengers Joe Poetz of Indiana, who was bound for Alexan dria to buy hind. Soon after leaving St. Paul a stranger who was also "eoing to Alexan dria," ingratiated himself with Poetz. At Minneapolis the confederate came on board to collect a freight bill of the man who had made himself agreeable to the Indianian. A check for $750 was tendered in payment Of course the bogus freight collector could not change it, but perhaps the gentleman who was going to Alexandria could. Of course he could, to the extent of advancing $350 and taking the check as security, to be redeemed when they both reached Alexandria. The swindlers then slid off, and the Indiana man was left with a worthless check and without his $350. When will people tumble to this racket? NO. 152 TROUBLES OF ERIN.
