Newspaper and Individual Comment.
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
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
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
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.
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
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."

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
"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.

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

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.

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.

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
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
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
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.
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
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

London, May 31.— a crowded meeting of
the land league of Great Britain last night it
'iwi resolved to hold a demonstration against
the coercion act in Hyde Park Sunday next.
©i Lord Salisbury speaking at a banquet in
London said the honse .of lords j would reject
the land bill. He had carefully guarded him
self from expressing any opinion because he
did not know what kind of a bill the commons
might make it.
The Times; in a leading editorial, says: It is .
believed the Irish executive has strongly '
represented to the cabinet the \ necessity of
adopting measures for th« suppression of the
land league. ] The writer adds: If the league is
permitted to continue its work it will brine
the masses of Irish people into a physical con
flict with the British crown.
At a meeting last night of members of parlia- -
ment and others belonging to the land league,
it was decided to fill the place of Kettle forth
with and it was also decided In the event of
the suppression of the league to transfer its
duties in Ireland to the ladies' land league and
if that was interfered ; with to conduct the or
ganization through a committee setting at
Holy head. -

willing to produce Dillon's letter if the house
desired it. Gladstone intimated the govern

A meeting of the bondholders oft he Confed
erate Cotton board of 1863, was held to-day.
The general tenor of the speeches was to the
effect that - although the bondholders had no
legal claim on the American government, .
something might be done if a friendly appeal
were made. The speakers seemed to base
their hopes on the fact that the bank of Eng
land seems to hold some of the residue of the .
loan. '
