Instead of ful filling his pledge, he called one of the government counsel a liar for reminding him of it. But the American pec pie will agree with Mr. Mernck and Col. Bliss that the pledge of the great infidel was only made to enable the great thief to escape the penalty of his crimes. The passage of the tariff commission bill in the House yesterday, removes the tariff qifestion from consideration for the remainder of the present session. The utterly worthless and shuttling character of the personnel of the present Congress could not be better illustrated than by the avidity with which this opportunity was seized on to shift the responsibility of preparing a tariff bill from their own shoulders to those of unknown persons yet to be named by the President. Of the 293 members of the lower house of congress, there were only eighty-three willing to go on record on the tariff issue. THIS TR.IGEItY IX IRELAND. The assassination of Lord Frederick Cavendish and Under Secretary Burke, the new secretaries for Ireland, gives Mr. Parnell an opportunity such as has heeti offered to no other Irish statesman in any period of the history of that un fortunate country, and on his -willing ness or capacity to improve it, depends in no small degree the prosperity and peace of his country and people during the present generation. No living Irishman can bring such agencies to bear in ferret iug out the assassins of the new secre taries as Mr. Parnell. Cavendish and Burke in their graves will influence the passions of Englishmen as the spectacle of Parnell in Kilmain ham incensed all Ireland. While the motive for the tragedy is "wrapped in a mystery at this writing; the effect of the bloody drama is seen in the storm of indignation which the dastardly act has created throughout the British Empire, which can only be stayed by the timely and prompt disavowal of the crime by Irish statesmen and the Irish people. The effect of the tragedy will not be felt in Ireland alone. Across the English channel tho statesmanship of Gladstone will be put to the severest test to obviate the necessity of a dissolution of the Brit ish Parliament. The tumultuous aud disorganized opposition to the Gladstone government of yesterday, will be crystal lized by this distressing calamity into a solid phalanx on the morrow. The hope of Ireland in the changed condition of affairs will center in the preservation of the Gladstone policy and government. In the consummation of such a work no man can contribute so much as Mr. Par nell by boldly upholding the great prin ciples of law and order ia Ireland. With such a policy asserted in Ireland the re action against the Gladstone govern ment :n England will probably not be very great. But without it, the present policy of the British government will be radically changed and possibly with it the present Premiership. There can be no question that the great crime will permanently damage the Irish cause and if the now hidden motive can be exposed it will undoubtedly be shown that the cowardly assassins were men who feared that peace and prosperity might be secured for Ireland by the changed policy of England. These as sassins have proven themselves the worst enemies of Ireland who have ever been developed, and they have well nigh de stroyed the cause, under the cloak of which they perpetrated their crime. CAJtixa fok ova vihiisg g ue.stsi The Chamber of Commerce and the City Council having invited the Ameri can Medical Association to hold its ses sion here the present year, and that body having accepted the invitation, it now de volves on the people represented by these two organizations to accord to this dis tinguished body such welcome and enter tainment as has heretofore been ac corded to them by other cities which have been honored wMh their presence, or failing m this we cannot avoid the Teproach of deliberately going back upon an invitation voluntarily extended to this great congress of the medical pro fession of the United States. This invitation was not sought for by this body, but was reluctantly accepted, and finally granted in a spirit of liberality, and as a concession to the growing North west. It 13 no small matter for its mem bers to take the time from a busy life, and ear the expense to gather at St. Paul from Texas and Georgia in the South, and from Maine and New Hampshire in the North, when many more central locations were urged upon them by larger cities ■with ample hotel accommodation. The Congress will consist of six hun dred of the most eminent men in the medical profession, and with friends ac companying them, will amount to as many more. These men will form impressions of our climate, our wealth and resources. What opinion they will gain of. these is not doubted, but what shall they say of the people? Shall they say that we invite guests and then make no provision for them? Shall ■we do as no other city has ever done, turn Our backs upon parsons who have been invited to partake of our hospitality and offer them nothing but husks? Having by our own acts incurred this responsi bility, we must needs go forward. To accommodate this great working body it will take every public hall in the city for four days for the use of its various sections, of practice, surgery, chemistry, etc., etc. These expenses, together with the usual receptions given to them will cost about $4,000, and this sum must be raised, if our engagements with them are to be kept. Nothing is asked for them to defray their personal expenses, nor would any thing be accepted if tendered. They are no junketing party at other people's expense. They are the deliberative body of the pro fession of medicine and surgery in the United States, intent upon'the advance ment of the noblest calling a man can fol low. To do its business, to make its law?, to fix its ethics, to a dvance all branches of science, are their work and mission here. Many of its members have at tained a national reputation, and all are at the head of the profession in their re spective localities. They are entitled to the ameuities of life wherever they go. When the contingency arises it will be time enough to contemplate what the effect would be upon our city and upon our state if wo neglected to extend to them the full measure of the hospitalities tendered, but it would be no small mat ter to have six hundred eminent men scattered in every state and territory with a just grievance against the city. The city of St. Paul can not he too liberal or too active in entertaining and extending hospitality to the coming vis itors, and the committee having matters in charge should meet with generous re sponses, both financially and in the mat ter of opening private residences to ac commodate our guests. PKOCKJ.STI NATION. Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season I will call for Thee. Acts 24: xxv. Paul had been sent for his safety to Felix, governcr of Cesarea. The high priest, Ananias and other Jews appeared before Felix and accused him of sedition and heresy; Paul refuted their accusa tions and impressed Felix so much with his earnestness, that he sent for him again to hear him concerning his faith in Jesus Christ. When Paul reasoned of righteousness and a judgment to came Felix trembled and said, "Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season I will call for thec." Felix sat in Cesar's judgment seat a3 a judge unto the nation, and, after this in terview recorded in the Scriptures, he sent for Paul often and communed with him, but the convenient season never came to Felix. In this world every in telligent person is a Felix sitting in a judgment seat where questions affecting this life and the life to come are continu ally being decided. Conscience and divine revelation are pleading and reasoning of righteousness and a judgment to come, and acceptance or refusal is left to each one to decide for himself. This world of light and beauty is a constant appeal to mankind in behalf of its Creator. Every sense is besieged with proofs of the goodness of God. As the Psalmist sang, "Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge," and as a modern poet has written — 11 Out ia the fields, each floral bill that swingeth And tolls its perfume on the passing air, Make 3 Sabbath in the fields, and ever ringeth A call to prayer." Man himself, with his manifold gifts, is a constant reminder of the debt he owes his Maker. All the ad vantageous circumstances that sur round him, health, educational ad vantages, friends, home and fortune, all confront him with the inquiry, "how much owest thou thy Lord?" And be yond all these blessings, stands the "un speakable gift" — the love of God, which has purchased pardon for sin and life from the dead. To every mind conscience presents these blessings and gifts as incentives to constrain men "to do with their might what their hands find to do," and to do it when they find it. If a man has quar reled with a neighbor or acquaintance, and the work of forgiveness or reconcilia tion is awaiting him, now is the time to attend to it. ' In the grave there is no atonement or forgiveness. The daily prayer is "Forgive our debts, as we for give our debtors," and it means forgive us now, as we forgive now. Many a father hopes in the future to look more carefully after his boys. Business claims all hi 3 time now, but by and by he will have more leisure, and so while he procrastinates, the devil at tends to the boys and sows tares, and "the tares will grow up and flourish and bear much fruit." Many a husband, whose office or store monopolizes his time and thoughts to the exclusion of home, dreams of a time, when, with an assured fortune, he can become acquainted with his family and take his share of the responsibility of his home and children. If death does not wake him from this dream, his alien ated family may teach him a sadder lesson. The fixed habit they have formed of living apart from him, and regarding him only as a provider, and in no true sense a companion or friend, is the bitter result which often follows the neglect and procrastination of home duties. There are deeds of kindness and mercy to be performed, words of love, pardon and sympathy to be spoken by every one. Conscience urges their claims for im mediate attention. There is no convenient season but the pres ent. For if death is not lurking just" around the corner, other duties arise with each coming hour. There is no person who has not some work of this kind to do. A man must be poor indeed who can not make some one happier, and now is the time for such gracious work. The highest and best labor a human being can perform is trusting in God and walking with him. Procrastination of this work is always attended with loss and often with final ruin.. The loss is in the friendship of God. In this world there is nothing more precious than an old friend whose truth has been tried. But what must it ba to be gaining year by year in the friendship of God. To come closer and closer to him, to grow more and SAINT PAUL SUNDAY GLOBE, SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 7 1882. more like him until in the morning of the resurrection to meet him a friend as well as a judge. The man, who puts off se curing this friendship until age or death comes, may be saved from eternal death bythe mercy of God.but he will lose all his life's work. He will have nothing to show for all the years he has spent on earth. The treasures he gathered there he has left behind him, and bankrupt and a stranger he must meet his God. The wise man thus admonishes men for all time. "Whatsoever thy hand tindeth to do do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave whither thou goest ' KEW QUARTERS.. The Elegant Clear S;oraof Geo. H. Stabl- vi \!i in Glifilliau Itiock. M. Geo. H. Stahlman, the enterprising aud popular retail cigar and tobacco dealer, Sher man block, Wabashaw street, for a year past, has made an important change, by moving his business to the magnificent six-story JGilfiil lan block, Jackson street, near the Merchants, where be will hereafter be "at home" to his friends. His new store it> a gem in its way; light, fresh and cozy. It is on the first floor, next the main center entrance to the elegant block, the visitor stepping directly from the sidewalk within the inviting apartments, where he will be confronted by one of the finest assortments of smokers' goods ever offered in St. Paul. The stock will embrace the finest lines of do mestic and imported cigars, favorite brands of cigarettes and the choicest varieties of tobacco. Mr. Stahlmau's long connec tion with the tobacco business gives him a decided advantage over most dealers, and he has determined to handle nothing but the best goods. Parties wanting such should be sure to give him a call. Having an elegant store and the choicest of gootfs, and wishing everything to be in keeping, he will use the electric light, and other luxuries will b2 added as fast as introduced, his purpose being to make it the bon ton cigar and tobacco retail house of the city. Another One Captured. Earnest H. Bose, who has been in the employ of Messrs. Auerbach, Finrth & Van Sryck, was arrested about 7 o'clock last night on a charge of larceny. It seems that he has been in the habit of buying of Garland the trunks required to fill orders of customers on the store, and the bills that have been sent in have been paid on being passed by him. A few days ago Bose was discharged, and afterwards a bill for §20 for a truck came in that no one knew anything about 1 , and which was purchased after his discharge. On investigation it was found that Bose purchased the trunk in the firm name and appropriated it to his own use. Detective Bresett was set at work to ferret out the matter and found that Bose boarded with his sister. On going to his room the officer found the trunk, but it had nothing in it. Further investigation of the room by the officer enabled him to find a valise with about $75 worth of tine goods, — iilk handkerchiefs and such like, — that belonged to the firm, and which it is supposed Bose had carried away from the store from time to time. The police force was directed to look out for the shop lifter and about seven o'clock last evening they found and arrested him, and deposited him in the county jail. Church Services To-day.

In the spring of the year the blood is thick and impure, the liver engorged and torpid, and one feels dull and heavy. These symp toms are often termed "Spring Fever." Moral: Allen's "Iron Tonic Bitters" is the grand spring tonic, liver invigorator, blood purifier and appetizer. It banishes "Spring Fever" like magic, and gives strength, tone and vigor to the whole system. P. P. Allen, Druggist and Manufacturing Pharmacist, sole manufacturer, St. Paul, Minn. Fof sale by J. P.

Shortly after 11 o'clock last night a fire alarm was turned in, which, after several false efforts, finally settled down to be from box 35, Dayton's Bluff. The fire proved to be in an old barn owned by Charles Helm, in rear of P. H. Kelly's residence, Maria avenue, The barn was unoccupied, and was evidently the work of an incendiary, this being the sec ond attempt. The Seventh street bridge beine condemned for the passage of fire en gines, the department endeavored to reach the lire by way of Third and Commercial streets, but were halted at the foot of the bluff, the fire having exhausted itself by the time that point was reached. The loss was probably not more than §200. THE RiVEK AND HARBOR BILL. Mure money for the Upper Mississippi— Other Features of the Kill. Washington, May 6. — The river and har bor bill is completed and will be reported Tuesday. The gross amount appropriated exceeds that of last year by -$4,000,000. This bill embodies several new features, one of the most important being in regard to the Mis sissippi and Missouri rivers. Heretofore the appropriations have been allotted to the vari ous harbors or rapids on these rivers for ex penditure, in certain sums, at given points. This time all this work is left to the direction of the commission. The money is ap propriated in gross for various sections of the rivers. It rests with the commission to divide it as seems best to them among the several works on the stream. It will thus be seen when the bill is published that not a cent is mentioned for Rock Island, or St. Anthouy, 'ar New Orleans, but all goes to the river at large, and local interests will have to deal with the commission if they demand certain sums spent in their vicinity. The bill gives the Mississippi river below Cairo 14,123,000, which last year gave but $1,000,0U0. From Cairo to the mouth of the lllinuis river §6i.'0,0u0 is appropriated, the same as the last bill. From the mouth of the Illinois river to Minneapolis the bill appropriates $200,000. Abore Minneapolis the river gets $175,000 and the reservoir at the head of the river §150,000, the sa'ue as in the last bill. The bill gives to the Missouri river from the mouth to Sioux City $SOO,OOO, about -$500,000 mure than lust time. The Ckicago harbor, for continuing work on the outer breakwater gets $200,000; the De troit river, $50,000; Milwaukee harbor refuge, $100,000; Dumh 540,(100; Supe-ior $35,000; the Illinois river, $175,000; Philadelphia and surrounding*, including tbe Delaware break water, §465,000; Baltimore, $i 50 -,-000; for dredging and continuing the harbor improvements of the Boston har bor, S9G.OUO; Hellgate at New York, exclusive of the special appropriation of $50,000 recently passed, $200,000; Buff do breakwater, $120,000; Kentucky river, $175,000; Tennessee river, $300,000; Ohio river, from Pitt-burg lo*the m:>uih, §400,000; Grand HiVen, Mich , $40,. 000; Saginaw river, Michigan. $125,000.

TIMELY TOPICS. In Alabama every member of both houses of the state legislature is a Democrat. Puesident ARTUtnt worships in St. John's church, and hits in the pew which was occu pied by President Madison. Officers of tho army and navy generally attend this church. At a recent saie of autographs in London, that of Queen Elizibstu brought $10, while that of Benjamin Franklin brought $24. An American plebeian, royal in scientific ac complishments, beat Albion's regal Queen by just one-third — a significant fact. William Thomas, of Plymouth, Mass., aged 94 years, is now the oldest graduate liv ing of Harvard college. He remembers Eben ezer Cobb, who died in Plymouth at the age of 107, and Mr. Cobb remembered Peregrine White, who was born on the "Mayflower." An interesting chain of recollections. It has been stated in a public Journal that President Arthur, standing by his sideboard, glittering with glasses aud bottles filled with wines and other choice liquors, said to sun dry friends: "Thi3 is not a Hiyes' adminis tration." The remark was probably an en tirely truthful one, but what did he mean? Probably the gentlemen present were shrewd enough to interpret it to mean: "Take a drink," and it is not likely they were so rude as to refuse so an enticing an invitation. Since the death of Longfellow, the hide pendent has published a poem, mrnished by a correspondent, entitled " Via Solttaria," said to have been an unpublished poem from the pen of the Cambridge poet. Now comes the explanation. The poem was actually written by Prof. O. M. Conover, of Madison, Wfs , twenty years ago, and was pnblished in the Independent in 1863. And, thus is exploded a posthumous production from the|pen ofJLong fellow. A lady writer in Washington, speaking of President Arthur says: ."He does not "gush" nor does he freest or overpower you with too much "manner," which in its way is as underbred as too little. He has not a sus piciou?, but a wary expression, which holds all new-comer 3in due abeyance, but he has another expression, more abiding — one of great gentleness and kindness— which ex- plains his reputation for good fellowship and why, in the best senss, his manner is pleasing to women." The Advertiser, of Boston, has been at the pains of taking a census of church attend mcc in that city on the 10th of April. The show ing is quite favorable to Boston piety. The total was 124,909, of whom 77,405 were, pres ent at the first service aud 47,434 at tbe second. In some cases the figures represent three services, but these are not numerous. The total attendance &t Baptist churches was 15,775; Congregational, 15,003; Unitarian, 10,101; Jewish, l;o63; Lutheran, 591; Metho dist Episcopal, 9,336; other Methodist, 2,058; Presbyterian, 3,130; Roman Catholic, 49,337; Swendenborgian, 530; Universalist, 2,337; miscellaneous, 3,513. The coioaizing of Palestine is being ener getically advocated by prominent Hebrews in Lurope. The persecution and disabilities of the Jews in various portions of Europe have given rise to this movement. The Jews of England appear to fav®r such a diverting of the stream of Russian emigration as shall se cure for Palestine thousands of hardy, capable settlers. The opportunity to repeople its deso late precincts lias not been lost on the general public sentiment and the lavish donations to the Mansion House relief fund, which now reaches the bum of £05,000, attt6t the preva lent de6ire not only to help the refugtes but to aid them to 6ecure their old national home. The indictment of tbe Ford brothers for i shooting Jes6e James; their conviction of ; murder by a jury; their sentence to he hung; and their prompt and unconditional pardon by Gov. Crittenden, causes some remark, and many are disposed to carp at the action of the governor. His granting a pardon, is sup posed to be based on the ground that Jesse James wa3 an outlawed bandit, and, as stub., it was lawful for any one to shoot him down at sight. A reward had been offered by the governor for his body, dead or alive, and in pursuance of all this, he was shot, and the world is well rid of a bloody, murderous monster. Carping at the action of the governor in the least, is entitled to no sympathy. Tee White House was crowded on Tuesday evening of last week, the occasion being a reception given by President Arthur to the diplomatic corps, the senators and reprtsenta tives, with the ladies of their families. He was assisted in receiving by Miss Folger, Mrs. Brewster, Mrs. Teller, Mrs. Hunt, and Mrs Bancroft Davi3, who stood in line at his right. All of the members of the cabinet were present, Secretaries Frelinghuyeen, Folger, Lincoln, Chandler, and Teller, Attor ney General Brewster, Postmaster General Howe, and ex-Secretary Hunt being in the Blue Room during tMe evening. There was a full attendance of the diplomatic corps and few senators and representatives were absent The parlors were decorated for the occasion and the Marine band played during the evening. Rev. Leigh Richmond, one of the most devout ministers of the English Established church, now many year 3 dead, laid do*n the following eight "Golden Rules" which will make good and appropriate Timely Topics' reading: 1. Stick to the truth; simply and sincerely, do what is right. 2. Never join in anything in which you can not look up and say, "Bless me in this, O my Heavenly F tlher!" 3. Try to be kind aud forgiving, both to friends and foes. 4. Spe.tk no evil of others, under any cir cumstinces. 5 Watch against anger. G. D^ny yourself indulgences, especially in laziness. 7. Kt-e > down pride; allow none but humble thoughts of M-lf. 8. Pray. Pray every day, for in prayer is your greatest safety. Ah exchange pays the following glowing tribute to Darwin, just deceased: "The week past is memorable for the death of a man who has not left his equal bshind. It is to the honor of our ace that it has proved that nature has not jet lost the power to produce those rare men, not born in every generation, who by their genius change the thought of the world. Charles Dirwin was not siicp'y the most distinguished nituralist and phi losopher of his age; he was a man who ranks by the side of Copernicus, in astronomy, and Newton, in physics, and Linnaeus, in natural his'ory, and Lavai3ier, : n chemistry, who revolutionize thought, and whose insight dis cover new principles of science, which shall guide the researches of generations. If one such man arises in a century, that century is fortnnat*. To isuch men as these the world is debtor; men of a genius as true as that of its great s-ingers and tetchers, Socrates and Plato and Bhakespsdre and Goethe." Thb "SdvaMon Army," of England, some time since made a quiet invasion of France, pitching the r tents (figuratively speaking) in the midst of one of the most unsavory quar ters of Paris. Recently the Salvationists have had a Fourth "Anniversary Review." The Commander- in-chief of the British forces, Gen. Booth, went over from Englaud.on the occasion and his daughter, Miss Booth, who has com mand of the Gallic department, conducted the exercises. The Salvation Army is, to some extent, a Woman's Rights organization. The sisters wear a uniform, aud bear such titles as "Captain," "Lieutenant," and "Sergeant." Like the Quakers and early Methodists, its originators recognized from the first woman's religious equality, and her peculiar gifts of religious faith and fervor, 6elf-sacriflce and couraec under persecution, and in the face of deadly peril. It is the opinion of many, prob ably more or less well founded, that the ma chinery brought into exercise by this army tends to vulgarize Christianity. Moumon propagandism was never more ac tive, determined and defiant than at the present time. No bin placed upon the wretched delusion by national legislature, or the opinions of mankind, seems to dash or deter its leaders. The Mormon effort is not con fined to Utah and the territories, but is ex tending into the States, as well as into foreign parts. A late Sioux City lowa, telegram says: "Three Mormon missionaries passed through this city last evening on their way to Minnesota. They are a part of a contingent of thirty-three mission aries tent out by the conference recently held in Ogden City, Utah. Twenty-two mission aries are going to Europe to labor in Great Britain, Denmark, and Switzerland, and the remainder will go to points in the south and east of the United States. These thirty-three are the advance guard of about 200 who are soon tv start on a similar mission." So Min nesota, also, is to be made the field of its propagandism. There is nothing in the history of any church in the world that shows v more resolute determination to extend its sway than the spirit of propagandism displayed by the Mormons. There is no way to meet it but for the church of Christ to redouble ita efforts to promote the advance and secure the triumphs of the principles of the gospel. Error must not be left to pursue its career without opposition, and the only effectual barrier that can be raised against its progress is that which is revealed in the gospel of Christ. When error and evil are thus ramp ant it becomes the friends of truth to strhe with greater earnestness for its success. Gen. Benjamin F. Butler has recently writlen a letter advocating the exclusion of Chinamen from this country, and yet, he is constrained to bear the folio wine* testimony to their character; "Two years since I wtnt to the Pacific co:tst, and one of my errands was to examine for myself the condition of the Chinese, and whether it was desirable that they should or should not come here. After careful investigation, I found that Chinamen were among the very best laboring men on the coast in all branches of industry, whether manufacturing, mining, domestic, or agricul tural; that, to a remarkable degree, as a whole, they were honest, and in their vocations exceed ingly intelligent; that they wcre'temperate, and as a rule, peaceful; and that they were not un derbidding labor so soon as they found what their labor was worth. I also found that they were thrifty, economical in their habits, and cleanly in their persons as a rule, and be caus3 of these traits were rapidly absorbing the emp'oyment in all laboring and mechanical work." This is what the sharp-eyed 'general saw with his own eyes. Aud yet, with characteristic consistency, or inconsistency, he would exclude the Chinese from the country, because they are economi cal, industrious and thrifty, and save a very considerable surplus of their earnings, be yond their expenses, which they transmit to China to help their friends. Admirable logic, this, on which to base an argument for the ex alusioa of the Chinese from the country. Do not other foreigners, who have like saving thrift and economy, transmit their earn'ngs to the old country to aid their friends left behind? Why not then, by the same token exclude other foreigners? If Chinamen, as a class, were drunken bummers, wasting all their earnings in dissipation, they might come and remain here, but the objections to this emigration are based upon their industry, temperance and thrift! Many years ago the Rev. Iraenus Prime, chief editor of the New York Observer, crossed the Atlantic ocean with A. T. Stew art He walked the deck more than any oth er passenger, and generally alone. Mr. Prime suggested to him one dr.y that his vast busi nees must create an anxiety that would drive sleep from his pillow. Mr. Stewart replied that it did not. Having decided upon an enterprise he let it take its course and did not think of it again. But, said Mr. Prime, if your whole fortune depeuded on the result, would it not make youuneasy? No, said Mr. Stewart, it would not; it r never did at any period of my life. I alwajs exercise the best judgment I have, and then let the thing take caru of itself. He said his two leading principles of doing business were thess: I require every sales man to tell customers the exact truth; nothing less, nothiug more, m regard to every article offered for sale. My second principle is to sell goods for just as small a profit as possible. Mr. Prime says, speaking of money-making, Mr. Stewart added : "I suppose you and others, perhaps the pub lic generally, think that I do business for the sake of the money I make. But that is a great mi?take. My object in life is widely different from that. Ido not care to speak of it pub licly, there are many who would laugh at the idea as ridiculous in me, but the truth i 3 that I am at the head of a great moral inbt tution; a seminary where, as its principal, I am teach ing young men of the whole country and the men of business that the secret of success in trade is found first in absolute honesty be tween man and man; and, secondly, in selling goods not for a3 much as you can get for them, but for as small a profit as you can acd live. The salesman has a great teiuptation to deceive; for, he is to ke*-p and render an exact account of all he sells, and his pay and promotion are regulated by the amount of money he takes in.

Many features of un usual interest will be presented, not the least of which will be a grand musical chorus of 7uo voices. Miss Carrie Mason, formerly a resident of this city, and who has assisted the Julia Rive King Concert company in their tour during the past season, has met with marked favor and success. She has been engaged for next season and will join the company in their tour to California and Australia. The fourth and last readings in Miss S. A.

The invitation has been extended by the managers of the fete a3 a mark of courtesy to a number of ladies, and, with the choice of making a tour in any direction, they wisely concluded to select St. Paul and vicinity as offering the most attractions. The railroads, East and West, have extended the most sump tuous accommodations, and arrangements are on foot to give them a cordial wel come in St. Paul. The wedding of Mr. Albert Fritche to Miss Angelina Six, took place at the resi dence of Mr. H. Buegers on West Third street Thursday, May 4, and an elegant time was had by all.

They also presented the happy couple with an elegant easy arm chair, the presentation speech being made by Senator Fred Bott in fine style. The Great Union orchestra furnished the music for the occasion. Arrangements are being made and nearly perfected for something extra ordinary in the line of rational and first class out-door amusements. The Great Western band and German society (in cluding the male and female division of the Miiennerchor) of St. Paul and the "Frohsinn" singing society and Danz's celebrated Minneapolis band intend, with their combined forces and full active strength, to properly inaugurate the spring season with a grand musical May festival at Union park on the 21st inst., thus offering to both cities an opportu nity to exchange the compliments of the season, while enjoying the music of some of the very best musical organizations of the state. If the weather be propitious, these inducements will surely call out a monster n\ass assembly. Mr. W. L. Perkins, of the wholesale linn of Perkins, Lyons & Co., accom panied by. his wife and two daughters, leaves this afternoon, at 3:30 o'clock, for an extended lour to the Pacific slope.

Bogus Land Scrip Pat On the Northwest- em Market by Swindlers. St. Louis, Mo., May 6. — A gigantic scheme of fraud and forgery has been unearthed by United States District Attoraey Bliss. A firm under the name of Burt & Miller occupied the room at the corner of Fifth and Chestnut streets, from which they sent out circulars offering government land scrip for sale. The authorities made a descent on the office, but the principals had flown. Meanwhile Jno. B. Cameron, believed to be a confederate of the pang, was arrested at Sioux Falls, Dak., through the instrumentality of the telegraph. He was taken to Yankton, whether the deputy United States sheriff has gone to bring him here. District Attorney Bliss Dclieves there is an organized ring, who have counterfeited the land scrip, and that their operations have been very extensive. He says they realize 90 per cent, of the value of the scrip, and must have realized from §300,000 to 5500,000. In St. Louis, he says, they succeeded in swindling to the amount of $50,000. Further arrests aud developments are expected. THE SCHEME EXPOSED. The first intimation of this scheme was obtained through a telegram received 6ome days ago by Geo. M. Cline, a prominent law yer here, from McKinney & Schoazel, bankers of Sioux Falls, Dakota, asking him to inter cept and hold a package of $900 sent by them by express to the alleged firm of Burt <fc Miller of this city. They also stated that they had been purchasing from Burt & Miller a quantity ot surveyors' certificates of deposit of the United States, receivable by law at par at all land offices in the United States; that tins $900 had been sent in payment for $1,000 of the scrip, received by them a few days pre viously, but their suspicions having beeu aroused regarding the genuineness of tne scrip they desired their remittance intercepted. Mr. Cline immediately consulted with Dis trict Attorney Biiss regarding the motion and from information received at the express office and from other sources, a visit was made to the office of Burt <fe Miller, which was found deserted. A yout g man who had acted as clerk for the firm was then found and the office opened but it contained nothing other than some cheap furniture and several of the circulars referred to above. There be ing no evidence that the clerk had beer con cerned in anything criminal, he was released. The district attorney believes that these sharp ers disposed of at least $50,000 worth of these certificates in Dakota and Wyoming alone Among the papers captured were orders from several firms in those territories for various amounts of the scrip. District Attorney Bliss telegraphed to the land office at Washington for information as to whether any knowledge has been received regarding the circulation of fraudulent cer tificates. The answer that came set forth that while nothing was known positively regarding the certificates, suspicioos hud been aroused at the large number that had been circulating in the northwest, which had caused a surmise that something was wrong. A request was then sent to notify all land agents and banks in the northwest to refuse these certificates until an investigation could be made. They were also requested to notify the special agents in that district to look into tbe matter as quietly and rapidly as possible. The district attorney believe s these certifi cates to be bogus and is taking energetic measures to expose the whole scheme. That there is a swindle in the case is evinced by the fact that on Monday last a man, representing himself as Miller of the firm of Burt & Miller, was at the express office inquiring for a pack age of $900 from Sioux Falls, but he took fright at the manner of the express people, gave them a false address and has not since called at the offise, although he had reason to believe a package would come for him. De tectives hare been put on the watch for him, but they have not found him. EXCITEMENT AT THE DAKOTA END. Yankton, D. T., May 6.— Considerable ex citement is occasioned here over the arrest of John D. Cameron for alleged connection with the Louisiana and New Mexico land scrip frauds. The United States land office here holds $&,OC'O of New Mexico scrip, which the officers detected before receiving in pay ment for lands. One banking firm, McKin ney <fc Scougal, has $5,000 of Louisiana scrip, which they received from Burt Smith, of St. Louis. The United States court is now in session, and the grand jury is investigating the frauds. An Irish professor, J. P. Mehahaffy, as published a book on the "Dscay of Modern Preaching." He admits there are great preachers left, but claims they have lost their power — chat the pulpit ha 3 lost its power, or bas in the main subsided as a r eformativ c in strumentality.
