ST. PAUL, SUNDAY. MAY 7, 1888.
Bob Ingersoli, pledged his honor that
lie would have Dorsey on hand at the
time set for his trial. 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.
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
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.
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
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
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 '
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.

Spring Fever.
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.

Fire Last Night.
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.
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
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

of the special appropriation of $50,000 recently

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
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;

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

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

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

Howe, and ex-Secretary Hunt being in the
Blue Room during tMe evening. There was a
full attendance of the diplomatic corps and

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'
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
5 Watch against anger.
G. D^ny yourself indulgences, especially in
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

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. But if
he is detected in having told a customer any
thing respecting goods not strictly true, he is
discharged. This is with me a rule without
asiy exreptioc. And lam training up suc
cessive relays of yoimg men who go into
business for themselves, or into the employ
ment of others, having learned this principle
that the way to secure confidence and custom,
is to state only the simple truth in regnrd to
what is sold This is the ( lesson taught in
my school, which is called a dry goods store,
but it is a great seminary, and is run not to
make money, but to do good."
When druggists, lawyers and doctors, and
even preachers occasionally, besides many
others of various professions too numerous
to mention, manifest a special iterest in any
ore article we very natura'.ly conclude it has
some healthy bearing on their lives, or they
would scarcely 'if t their voices with one ac
cord to extollts virtues and piace it before
those going through life burdened with rheu
matism. Filled with rapture over immediate
relief, the sufferer ever after refers to St.
Jacobs Oil, the Great German remedy, as
the most 6urpri6ingly efficacious of all
remedial agents. We recently observed in a
New Jersey exchange the following item in
support of the above: Mr. Isaac Correy,
Manager, Balem, N J., Glass Works, re
merks: lam pleased to say that I have used
the Great Remedy, St. Jacobs Oil, for rheu
matism with excellent resnlts; other members
of my family have also been greatly benefited
by it.

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
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 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.
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.
