PAUL, MONDAY, JULY 16, 1888. Black Jack Logan's proposition to apply the revenue derived from the man ufacture and sale of whisky to the pub lic school fund has received a severe back-set by the adoption of the lowa con stitutional amendment. Don Cameron has become so much alarmed over the political situation in Pennsylvania that he is now even will ing to call a new convention, provided the Garfield Republicans will agree to let him name the candidate— Gen. Beaver. It is said that Col. Bacon will contest the field with Alexander H. Stevens for the gubernatorial honors of Georgia. Mr. Stevens, although now quite old and infirm, has gTeat confidence inhis- ability to cook the Bacon of the Independents, should an opportunity be given him. That factor in the politics of Pennsyl vania known in Republican circles as "Assistant Democrats' been invited to ■walk into the Stalwart parlor on the 121b. lust. The Garfield Republicans are about as much of an object of interest in Stalwart circles at this time as the "man and brother" was about fifteen years ago. .;. ...••-'• Hon. John P. Ireland, a prominent Democrat and newspaper man of lowa, has concluded to cast his fortunes with the millionaires of the Pacific slope. Col. Ireland is an able and zealous worker in the Democratic vineyard, and he will carry with him to his new home the best Wishes ©f a host of friends, who will find consolation only in the thought, that what is their loss is the gain of the Unterrified and Unwashed beyond the mountains. They have commenced manufacturing candy in New England that is said to be so strongly saturated with liquor that it lias an intoxicating effect on those who use it. Under the circumstances it is not at all unlikely that those engaged in this »ew industry will be able to work up a good trade in lowa, and thus be instru mental in bringing about a reconciliation between the now disconsolate nosegay and the taffy of his younger years. Tite St. Louis papers seem to think it yet an open question as to which of the two parties Jesse James belonged. This is hardly fair. As the dead bandit was a regular reader and correspondent of a prominent Republican journal of Chi cago, it is due to the stalwart press of that city as well as to the truths of his tory, that they should have, at least, the benefit of all doubt in the case. Whether Jesse James was in training with the ▼iew of M ah on i zing the hog-and-hominy State has not as yet been developed. The Pennsylvania revolt against the bosses is already beginning to be felt in other States. Black Jack Logaa, of Illinois, is one of the first to profit by the lesson, and he has already announced his purpose to take no part in the con test over the Granny Davis senatorial succession. It is just possible, however, that the part Granny Davis took in or ganizing the Senate has more to do with Black Jack's neutrality in this connection than the general public suspect. Congressman Deuster seems to be "wasting ;a good deal of valuable time and bad blood in trying to bring the exec utive to the support of his immigrant bill. Mr. Deuster ought to know that the Republican managers who served no tice on the Dutch in Ohio and other States that they could get on without ♦hem, are not likely to lend their "good offices" in furtherance of any scheme offering additional facilities for the en- couragement of their countrymen to seek an asylum in this portion of the New World. KVVTE J2V THE BOLE OF JIXKS. The violent bubbling of the political pot in tie ith congressional district and the prospect of a scrub race in which Kindred, Nelson, Oilman and McCrea are the conspicuous entries, presents a condition of affairs in such strong con trast with the present tranquil surface of the political w a teis in and around the sawdust cil y, as to render an explanation of this abnormal condition of affairs im possible on any other hypothesis than that Charley Johnson is now engaged in distributing the "soap" where it will do the most good. From all accounts Charley has been only spending one dol lar to make Knute think Washburn is in favor of his election, where he has spent two to make sure that he brings up the Tear at Detroit on the 12th inst. The desperate condition of affairs in his own district has made it necessarj for Washburn to send Charley out through the state and gather up the odds and ends, and as Knute has always been predisposed to figure as an appendage or tail to some one's political kite, rather than as an in dependent, potent and self-reliant factor in the politics of the state, Charley approached him and found him some what in the frame of mind in which Bill Arp found Bill Jinks, of Georgia, just before election day.- "Jinks, how are you going to vote in the election," said Bill, "for Col. Johnson ain't at home, and didn't tell me afore he left, and maybe he hain't ceen Judge Underwood, and Judge Underwood hain't heard from Howell Cobb, but who in the Dickens tells Howell Cobb I'll be dog'd.if I know." "The fact is we all belong to somebody, and there is noth ing wrong about it. I love to belong to a man whom I respect, and feel that he has got more terse and judgment than I have, but then, at the same time, I want somebody to belong to me. Life is a kind of stair-case with a heap of platforms, and there ain't room enough it the top for us all. Most vl us are lower than somebody and higher than some body else. Dominion is the pride of a man — dominion over something." As it is now almost certain that Knute will come under the wire a bad third or fourth at the Detroit free for all, it looks as if he will have to console himself with the reflection that he held "dominion" over that element in the contest which, much to the convenience of the bosses, he has been carrying in his breeches pocket for these many years without benefit to himself or the public. Unless, like his legendary countryman, he fights his political battles with the view of inheriting the ability and valor of those whom he slays in battle, the object of his periodical candidacy is becoming quite as inexplicable as it is monstrous and farsical in results. THE ENCAMPMENT. Another Visit to the Grounds at White Bear— Matters Assuming Shape. "Camp Hubbard,'" at White Bear lake, has assumed shape and needs only "men in armor" to transfer it into a veritable military camp and assume the appearance of "grim visaged war." Yesterday, however, its wrinkled front was smoothed and the angel of peace apparently brooded over the campus. A few of the boys, however, are "tenting to night on the new camp grounds" in charge of the government property, with the moon and 6tars as 6entinels. The fatigue party, which was detailed to stake out the grounds, locate and put up the tents, under the com mand of Lieut. Metzger, have performed good service, and what was a pastoral scene on Sat urday morning has been transformed, as if by magic, into a canvased city, and when the "boys" come marching in to-day they will find their military abodes ready to receive them. The Globe yesterday gave a descrip tion of the grounds and the plan of the camp, which description is republished in the Globk this morning on the seventh page. It is only necessary to state that the pitching of the tents ia accordance with the plan has been done. In the Globe report yesterday the list of the field and staff officers of the first battalion wera accidentally omitted. The following are the names of the FIELD AND STAFF: Lieut.-Col.— W. B. Bsnd. Major— J. B Gilmore. Adjutant — W. J. Sonnen. Quartermaster— J. K. Metzger. Burgeon— Dr. James Davenport. Companies C, D and E, of the First battal ion, all of St. Paul, will assemble at their re spective quarters this morning at § o'clock, and march to the depot and take the train at 9 a. m. for the lake. They will be accompanied by the Great Union band. Companies A and B of Minneapolis, of the same battalion, will arrive at White Bear station at the same time with the St. Paul companies, and the full battalion will march in regular order to the grounds. The Emmett Light artillery will meet at their armory at Ba. m. and take up tteir line of march in heavy marching order and go overland to the camp ground. This twelve mile march will give the boys a slight fore taste of the life of an artilleryman. The companies of the Secoad battalion will arrive in St. Paul today as follows, and pro ceed at once to the camp: Company "A" of New Ulm, at 11:55 a. m. Company "B" of Faribault, at 9:30 a. m. Company "C" of Wmona, at 12:45 p. m. Company "D" of Fairmont, at 11:55 a. m. Company "E" of Albert Lea will reach Minneapolis at 7 a. m. and will join the companies from that city. The Neilsville Guards of Wisconsin are Jex pected to arrive with the Winona company at 12:45 p. m. and proceed with them to the camp, but of this there is no official notifica tion. Immediately upon the arrival of the First battalion pickets will be thrown out and the camp placed under guard when the orders of the day will be promulgated. From present appearances eveivthing 'indi cates a pleasant and profitable time. White Bear lake bids fair to be thronged with visi tors during the week and every preparation has been made to accommodate them. Fine Paintings. As distance lends enchantment to the view we are apt to grow enthusiastic over works of art produced away from home. Paintings brought here by some distant artist will attract great attention and encomiums while home talent is over looked. We are led to these remarks by a casual call paid to W. L. Anderson's carpet store where we had the pleasure of inspecting half a dozen splendid paint ings which Mr. Anderson has executed. Mr. A.'s work is so fine that he ought to rank as a professional.

" . We therefore start with this thought in view, that revival of religion has been found useful, ; yea, necessary, in the past, so those who in the church of God desire to keep pure the faith and arouse the souls of men to a sense of their eternal welfare must see the need of that which is not new but 'as old as sin itself, the revival of religion among those who call themselves Christians. Here the preacher referred to the work done in England by missions or retreats in the church of England, and the fact that societies of godly men in that church are being organ ized for that special work. Union Service a. Market Hall. The union service at Market hall last even ing was opened at 8 p. m. by singing "Who soever Will May Come." On the platform were the Rev. W. K. Tully, of Jacksonville, Fla., who preached at the House of Hope in the morning, Rev. Dr. Dana and a large dele gation of both ladies and gentlemen of the Y. M. CA. Nathan Ford led the music. The meeting was under the charge of D. R. Noyts, who after a prayer by Rev. 'fully read the subject for the evening, viz.: "'lhe Ability and the Willingness of Christ to Save." ■ . From the time *of man's fall he had been constantly looking for a Saviour— the (speaker remarked — but we cannot really appreciate being saved until we realize being lost, but when we do realize our lost condition the name jof Christ is to us tbe sweetest name that ever fell from mortal lips. He could not believe that as some would have us think that the wars of humanity were to be lost. It was incompatible with the wonderful and infinite love of God. He had cut out and pasted into his Bible the words of Dr. Hodge of Princeton college, on the subject, which afforded him a viut deal of comfort and which he read to the audience. Mr. Noyes then read from Isaiah the invitation "Ho every one that thirstelh" an*, also sev eral other passages of scripture and related a number of instances where the ability of Christ to save had been abundantly testified to. He was followed by Dr. Riggs who remarked that the subject was true atid apparent as the most apparent thing in nature. Some doubted the idea of personal salvation because they could not understand the way Christ saves. But this is no more an incomprehensible idea than a thousand theories in science which are ac cepted by the whole world. The hyms of praise sung ia over 200 lan guages was the bent possible proof of the ability of Christ to save. He was followed by the Rev. Dr. Dana, who spoke ia hi* usual earnest, forcible manner, his theme being that there was no tin to great Christ could not save from it. He wanted people in St. Paul to be led to see that they were lost and needed salvation. He hoped the meetings would be a source of good and would succeed in saving through Christ some of the vast numbers of our owd people who are under the dominion of the terrible evil of intemperance and whom Christ alone could save. The doctor made a very visible impres sion upon his audience. Mr. jNoys announced ili-it the meetings would be continued and several other churches would join them, their platform was broad enough for all denomina tions. A collection was taken up and a ben ediction by Key. Dr. Dana closed the meeting. About five or six hundred people were ia at tendance. KSIQBIH TEMPL4B COMISG.

They are representative men from Detroit, Kalamazoo, Toledo, Chi cago, Milwaukee, and various other places, and come to St. Paul to see the country and en joy a few days' recreation. As they travel by special train they make good time. They will come by the Mil waukee & St. Paul and return via the Omaha and Northwestern lines. It is the expectation that the St. Paul Knights Templar will be at the depot when the train arrives this evening to welcome them. U»n Df.j» :i» il. Yesterday Herman Farwald, a boy nineteen j'ears of age, was drowned in Lake Johanna under the following cir cumstances. He was a farm hand and worked for Alvm Roe, out near the poor farm. Yesterday morning Roe, Far wald and another man went to the lake for the purpose of fish ing. They had no boat and fished along the shore till about noon without catching anything. At that time they concluded to go home and were about to do co when it was pro posed that they go in swimming. All agreed to this proposition and they ac cordingly went in. Farwald went out where the water was about ten feet deep, not a great way from the shore, where he suddenly called out for help and immediately sank and was seen no more. Roe and the other man could not swim and of course could be of no use to him and could not have assisted him if they had tried, besides he sank so quick ly that they had no chance even if they had tried.* It took fully an hour to get a beat, as they had to go a Ions: way around the lake for one. When they got the boat and went to the spot they saw the body on the bottom of the lake in about ten feet of water. Word was sent to Coroner Davenport and Messrs. McCarthy & Donnelly, went out and got the body. No inquest will be held as there is no question as to the cause of his death. He has a brother-in law living in Hamburg, Carver county,and his father lives two miles further on in the same county. Both have been tele graphed to.

FOLGER XP LAINS, 'A': DETAILED STATEMENT OF IHE DOYLE BOND PLATE AFFAIR .

'■; 5 *■';'" ■, Washington, Jnly B.— Secretary Folger to day furnished for publication the following statement of the origin and results of his in vestigation concerning the so-called "Doyle bond plates" : Treasury Department, Office of Secretary, Washington, D. C, July B.— So much has been said in the public prints about the Doyle bonds that it Is well to make an explicit explanation m regard thereto. There are counterfeits of United States bonds, known as the 6 per cents of 1881, and only of the $1,000 denomination of that issue. Of genuine bonds there were issued, in all, $100,650,000, in amounts which were separately numbered from 119,650, Inclu sive. When they were issued a record was made of all of them in a book wherein the number of each bond was entered in a line by itself and the numbers of all of the genuine bonds have been redeemed and canceled.except $278,000, and interest ceased to run on them in 1881. When any oae of these bonds has been noticed for redemption the number it bore has been offered, the record book has been re ferred to to see if the bond of that number had ever been offered before. It has then been scrutinized in other respects and when accepted and redeemed an entry has been made upon the bock that shows that the bond of that number has been paid off and canceled. It is the fact there has never been offered for re demption, a duplicate of any bond heretofore redtemed, that is to say never have two bonds of the same number been offered. It is also a fact that there has never been offered for re demption a bond with a number higher than or different from the same genuine number recorded in that book. The significance of these facts will be seen further <n. The existence of any counterfeit bonds, the Doyle bonds, was not known to any branch of this department until October, 1880, when Doyle way arrested in Chicago and spurious bonds were found in his possession. It af terward appeared that three of the spurious bonds had been before that pledged as collat eral with a bank in Peoria, 111. There were then taken from him in all 234 of the spurious bonds, with one $30 coupon at tached to each bond and fourteen detached coupons of the same kind and denomination, and three bonds that had been thus pledged were after that surrendered to the officers of the secret service force of the government, making in all 207 bonds. It has been stated in the public prints that $22,000,000, in nominal amounts, of spurious bonds wtre struck off by the counterfeiters, and that many of them have been put in cir culation. Here is where the significance is to be ftlt of the facts above stated. Surely, if that amount of bonds or a tithe of it, had been placed in the bands of innocent holders, long ago would some ot the bonds have been offered for redemption, for it is not to be supposed with the whole amount of genuine bonds outstanding reduced to $278,000, and with interest no longer running on them, that there would be innocent holders of the spu rious bonds believing them to be genuine, so wealthy or so careless as not to bring them for ward for redemption. Had they been offered, a comparison of the numbers on them with the book of the record of the genuine bonds would have disclosed the fact that duplicate or higher numbers existed. That fact never having appeared it is thought to be conclusive that the story is baseless of the large amount printed and put in circulation. It has also been stated in the same way that more than 204 of the spurious bonds were found on Doyle and that by the act or connivance of some officer or officers of the secret service some of the excess over that num'>er have been set afloat. Premising that the-204 found on Doyle and the three pledged with the Illinois bank and cupon attached to them and fourteen detached cupons, are now in the custody of officers of the government and by actual count lately made as shown to be there, it is further to be said that the belief that no more exist 6 than as above stated rests upon the official report of the officers of the secret service, made on official oath, and upon investigations lately had when it was stated that more were cap tured with Doyle and some rumors to the same effect, having a show of truth, come to tl.e hearing of this department a special agent of the treasury, and a detective from the assistant treasurer's office at New York, nei ther of them in any wise connected with the secret service of the government and acting without the knowledge of that service, were detailed to ferret out the matter. They have reported to the department that nothing has yet been found to give a color of truth to the rumor. It is almost certain that no more were ever in possession of Doyle than the 207 above spoken of. Quite as important a matter is the statement that the plate from which the spurious bonds were struck was either itself genuine or was reproduced from a genuine die and work, and that the means of doing so were furnished from within the department. lam thorough ly satisfied thjt these allegations are entire>y unfounded. It is well to state with detail how this mat ter has been presented to me. Dayle was brought to trial a second time at Chicago on the second day of May last. Shortly after that date Samuel M Felker, by calling a pri vate detective, in that city, came to this de partment and declared that he was here in be half of Doyle to get for him immunity from punishment. The consideration which he offered therefor was the surrender of the plate from which the spurious bonds were struck and proof that it was the genuine work, from which the real government bonds were struck, or that it was produced by th« use of that genuine work and that the genuine work or use was had by complicity of officers or employes of the government. I have no reason to sup pose that Felker was not 6incere in his offer or in his belief of the facts which he assert ed. This department declined to interfere for the postponment of Doyle's trial. Id the meantime Doyle had been tried and convicted. Ffclker did put the plate into the possession of this department and a promise was given to him that an effort would be made to get suspension of sentence upon Doyle and an as surance of clemency if througn his means it should be proven that the plate from which the spurious bonds were produced was pro cured from officials or subordinate employes of tbe United Stateß, or otherwise wrongfully obtained from within the department. This was done on the same principle that the law has long recognized of giving immunity to a criminal on his turning state's evidence against an accomplice against whom a more satisfactory kind of testimony was not to be had. Surely it was better la bring to light rogues within the department if they exist trusted by government than to punish one outside of it and in whom no confidence was placed. It is sufficient to say on one part of this matter that nothing has been shown to this department tending to prove that any official or employe of the government had any thing to do with the production of the spurious bonds or of the plate or dies or any part thereof from which the spurious bonds were struck. Tbe most that has been learned is this, that a plan of tbe parts of it were furnished to Bro-kaway or Spencer by Charles H. Smith, an engraver by calling, who has heretofore been under suspicion of complicity with counterfeiters and whose employment by bank note companies and by the government has given facilities for the improper exercise of his skill. The plate has not nor has any part of it been traced further than this though an effort has been made to that end by this department and Doyle and his friends have had an opportunity lor the discovery and disclosure. It is a fact that the genuine bonds of the government of the issue in question were not printed in this depart ment, but by the bank note company from plates and dies in the possession of the Litter and before the creation in this department of a bureau of engraving and printing. The records of this department, though not so minute aad specific as is desirable, show that much of the matter from which the genuine bonds were printed, was canceled by the bank note com pany, was surrendered to the government and was taken to the navy yard in this city and there melted in presence of a committee whose report thereof is on file. It Is not known that more than one die of those that made np the genuine plate Is now in existence and that is the die known as the "sonave" or standard bearer or "soldier," which played an impor tant part in the tests which have been applied ia the scrutiny to which this spurious plate has been subjected. On the reception of the plate by this department it was shown to Mr. Jones, president of the Columbian Bank Note company of this city, and Mr. Lamb, an employe of that company. They both, after an examination not prolonged, gave it as their opinion that parts of the plates 'were genuine, or from genuine work. An officer of another bank note company, after a hasty view, gave a hesitating opinion to the same end. A worker at the geometric lathe in the bureau of engraviDg and printing, examining the bond with powerful glasses, was variable in his oral opinion, that the work from which the bond was printed was genuine, and has finally, in writing, expressed bis judgment that it was not. Not satisfied with these tests, this depart ment summoned Mr. Marter, teller in the office of the assistant treasurer in New York city, and an acknowledged expert in the in spection of such papers; Mr. Rhodes, treasurer of the Photo Electrotype company in New York city, who brought with him Mr. Kreis, an expert in the mechanical and chemical pro cesses of that company, and Mr. Homer Lee of the Homer Lee Bank Note company". The plate and the genuine and spurious bonds and all the impressions from the genuine or Bpnnous bonds were placed in the hands of these persons. They were asked to pursue their methods independently of each other, with no intimation to each other of their opinijns, and state their respective conclu sions to tbe department, without making them known to each other. These experts have pursued their inquiries thoroughly; they have trken time enough; they have been minute in examination and have applied the tests which their practical skill put in their power, and the result of each report made in writing is that the Doyle bonds are spurions and so unlike the genuine as to be detected by the inspection of an ex pert; that there is not a single part of the plate that has been transferred from a genunine roll or has been in any man ner produced or fabricated from or by means of an impression obtained from a genuine plate, or through the application of an photo process; that the counterfeiters' original was the product of the counterfeiters' graver; that the whole and every part ol the plates were counterfeit, differing in many details and features Irom the genuine. The spurious die of the standard bearer, if it had been produced in any way from the genuine die thereof ought to match with the roll by which the latter was made, but when the spurious die was placed under that roll it was found that it would not match, and that the lines of the one ran in a different direction from the lines of the other. There are other things revealed by the examination of the experts tuat to my mind are conclusive that tbe plate now in pos session of the department is altogether a counterfeit; that no part of if is genuine or a reproduction from a genuine. The reports of the experts are appended hereto, and refer ence is had to them. [Signed] Chas. J. Folgrr, Secretary of Treasury. EXPERTS. Mr. Lee reports that he examined ten plates and confidently expresses the opinion that they were engraved by counterfeiters. After carefully and minutely describing many differ ences between the genuine and counterfeit plates, L.c says, "I have by no means enumer ated all difierence discovered. I might men tion many more if it were necessary; indeed they might b3 made almost indefinitely. They are so numerous and so marked that any theory which would connect these plates or either of them in any way with the genuine plate is, in my opinion, entirely un tenable. I cinnot admit the possibil ity that a singie one of the ] > ites which I have been invited to examine has been transferred from a genuine roll or has been in any manner produced or fabricated from or by means of a wax or lead or other impression surreptitiously or other wise obtained from a genuine plate or has been produced through the application of any photographic process. The differcrces dis closed cannot be explained upon any such sup position. They are to my mind absolutely in compatible with any except the hypothesis that the counterfeiters' originals were the product of the counterfeiters' engraver. Mr. Rhodes goes over a great deal of ground covered by Lee and in addition gives the fol lowing discription of the metals of which the plates are composed. The two $1,000 dies, also a part of the face of the plate are of de posited or electrotype copper, duplicated from a single counterfeit original. The peculiar lathe work lines of the genuine have been so skillfully copied in general effect aa to readily deceive, yet upon close comparative examina tion the variations from the genuine are more marked than In any other part of the bond. He concludes his report as follows: In de termining the quality of the metals compos ing the different parts of the submitted bond plates, the following tests were used. The plates were submerged in an ordinary electro type bath acted upon by a dynamo machine and partly decomposed. Those parts which I have designated rotted or engravers' copper, showed presence of an alloy by formation of a dark oxidization upon the surface, while the electrotype or deposited plates, composed of copper which is chemically pure, presented a reddish granulated surface free from any oxidization which is pecular only to electrotype or deposited copper. In clos ing I beg further to add that my report might have beeH made without fear of contradiction after a shorter comparison between the plates submitted and the genuine bonds, yet I have strictly obeyed your instructions to be very accurate in every particular and detail, and now assert and can substantiate that the whole and every part of the plates submitted to my ixamiHahon as enumerated above is counterfeit, diflering in many details aud features from the genuine. Mr. Manler's report sets forth substan tially the same discrepancies that are described in the reports;of I<e and Rhodes and concludes as follows: "From my examination of Jtthe two papers submitted to me, I am entirely convinced that the paper which is shown to me as taken from Doyle is a spurious and counterfeit paper; further, in my judgment, not one part of the Doyle bonds was printed from a genuine plate.

After the transaction of routine business, during which the picnic committee reported a surplus fnnd of $45 in their hands, a number of spirited addresses wtre made. Theo. Canby was the first speaker. He made a strong address. He thought the league had much for which to feel encouraged. It had educated the Irishmen to govern them selves, which would necessarily lead to the ultimate freedom of Ireland. Miss Ida O'Brien recited with pretty effect •'The Land Leaguers Void.'' Ed. McDonald followed in a short speech which was characteristic of the speaker. The future of Ireland demands all the attention of all the Irish people. For centuries they had been subjected to the most bitter sarcasm and unjust criticism by those who were too ig norant to really understand the situation, but this condition is surely passing away. He spoke encouragingly of the support which was being given the cause all over the country and especially in the United states, he spoke of the combina tion of capital for the purpose of giving the Irish people work ia the manufacturing in terests and in tilling the soil as encumbered with danger. He feared that after having been ground so long with the iroa heel of cruel and heartless tyranny they would be only too glud to relinquish all agitation and settle down to industrial pursuits, perfectly satisfied with that state of allairs. The British government were fast beginning torealizs tuat Ireland was aa elephant upoa their hands which they would soon be toe happy to dispose of if the land leaicue move ment was continued unabated. With a few words of eucouragemeut to the ladles 1 leajrue he clo-ed his address. Wm. H. Donahue was the next speaker. He thought tha feeling on the part of England was more bitter thau ever before. He s;>oke of driving out the Irish members of parliament when no cause for the ict existed. He spoke of receiviag a letter from an intelligent and cultivated English gtiitleman in England, in which he opeuly charges the murder of Cavendish and Burke to the landlords. It was very appareit that an uprising of the people ia England against the Unalorda was immintutand the Truth, v paper widely circulated throughout the Englifcti government, was the bold and defiant inoutiu»ifce of the movement. (in a Stvilte Aijniti. A few weeks ago the newsboys who usually sell the Pioneer Press entered into a strike be cause the publishers would cot furnish them with papers at the Mine rates as the other papers. Exciting times ensued. Other boys were intimidated and bulldozed so that they did not dire purchase and sell that paper. Finally amicable arrangements wen: effected between publishers and newsboys. Bat the arrangements, however, proved temporary. Yesterday morning the strike was re newed with increased vigor At an early hour the striker? purchased other papers and stationing , themselves directly in front of the P. P. office began crying them out and selling them. Not one sold a P. P. Finally Mr. Millerlooraed up. H« would have his papers sold. He scolded and coaxed alter nately but to no effect. He got mad — mad as a wet hen in the fall. He darted down the street and presently returned breathless and exhausted, but he had in hid wake two boys whom he had induced to undertake to break the strike and sell the P. P. They took their papors and sallied forth but were quickly surrounded by a number of the strik ers who despoiled • them of their wares in a jiffy. And then, depend, Miller was mad. He raved, and finally called upon the chief of police to get his wrongs righted. The chief agreed to . attend to the matter, bat in the meantime the war hid sub-side and all was quiet on the Potomac. A platoon of dol ice will protect Mr. Miller and the P. P. this morning. ■■■•... /* the Check Valid:' Last Friday a cow was stolen by a thief from a Greenwood farmer and brought to Minneapolis and soid to a butcher named J. L. Kuchli. Kuchli drew a cheek for $35, pay able to William Tammos or bearer, in pay ment for tht cow. Th*; animal was after wards fouud to be btolen property, when Kucbli ruslicJ around to the bank aud stopped payment upon a check. In the meantime Taminos took the check which he had received in return for the stolen cow and turned it over to Mr. H. J. Burton who first examined it critically, and concluding it was genuine had Tammos indorse it, and he thfan cashed it. Upon taking it to the bank he found, of course, tha" he could not get his money. He is confident.Uowever.that he can compel the de linquent butch' r to reimburse him, inasmuch as the check was genuiue and purchased in good faith by mnoct-nt parties.
