Judas and Ili'jh License Discussed by Dr.
Harrison Hall was filled to overflowing
yesterday afternon by the Minneapolis
prohibitionists. Chaplain Satterlee com
menced his address by reading from the
twenty-seventh chapter of the gospel of
St. Mathew and took Judas as the
topic of his discourse, going over the his
tory of the betrayal, and the traitor's sub
sequent acts and tragic death.
He continued: 'Let us see if we cannot
find some modern Judases. Take, for in
stance, our government, that accepts blood
money from the saloon-keepers in ex
change for the right to poison men and
ruin innocent women; for every dollar of
the saloon-keepers' money is the price of
some crime or bloody brawl. The Jewish
Sanhedrim who conspired to crucify the
Savior of the world had too much
honor to put the thirty pieces of
silver into their treasury when Judas
brought them back and threw them at
their feet, and so they took the money and
bought a potter's field with it. But our city
government takes the blood money offered
by the keepers and put it into the
city treasury, and is glad to get it. They
talk about raising this blood money from
$100 per saloon to $1,000 as if it were not
just ten times as bad to let a man sell poi
son for §1,000, as it is to let him sell it for
$100. They say that high license would
decrease the number of saloons,
and if it had effect it would
only do away with the small, cheap ones
and those remaining would bo made more
attractive than they now arc. Many young
men will not go into one of our. low
Baloonp, but will come up town and stay
•all night in a place that is fixed . up nice
like tho Nicollet b;ir or Barge's.
Let 100 men pay !? 100.000 annually into

controlling the liquor business of Minne
apolis would be more formidable than the

RIVER-HARK OR SWINDLE.
Getting More than They Sought from Bob
[New York Tribune. ]
The defenders of the river and harbor
swindle wanted a bill of particulars from
Secretary Lincoln, and they appear to have
been handsomely gratified. A few weeks
ago they got into a state of irrepressible
indignation because the newspapers had
spoken harshly of the swindle, and deter
mined .to confound their enemies and si
lence all further criticism by propounding
some conundrums to Secretary Lincoln
At the instigation of Mr. Page, a resolution
i was passed asking him to name any in
stance he could find whsra money
had been appropriated tor works or
objects that are not in the interest of or do
not bonent commerce and navigation.
There were other questions, but this was
the principal one. The defenders of the
big grab looked upon the resolution as a
brilliant piece of strategy, and settled back
calmly to await a response which should
convince the country that they had
been grossly maligned. They received
their reply yesterday, but it was not in any
respect the one they were looking for.
Secretary Lincoln went into the subject
with great enthusiasm and thoroughness,
and, to the consternation of the propound
ers, he answered their questions in such a
way as to vindicate completely the dread
ful newspapers. "We venture to hope that
Messrs. Page and Robeson will not move
his impeachment for this offensive con
The secretary remarks in the beginning
of his reply that he had not considered it
his duty to make the investigation until it
had been requested by congress, and that
when in compliance with such request he
had looked into the matter it appeared to
him that "in many instances the results of
substantial benefit to commerce, were so
obscure and apparently insignificant as to
vindicate the doubt on the part of the
house of representatives indicated by the
inquiry presented in the resolution." Wb». m
a surprise it must have been to the movers
of that resolution to learn that it "indi
cated" such a doubt as that! It is very
clear that Secretary Lincoln miscon
ceived, of course unintentionally, the
object of the inquiry. The detailed
statement which he includes in his
report sustains this view. He
gives a long list of instances in which he
thinks the appropriations made would
not be beneficial to either commerce or
navigation. One of this kind was the
$5,000 allotted to the harbor of New Buf
falo, Mich. The local engineers report
that there was no commerce, and that the
work of improving the harbor was aban
doned ten years ago for that reason. No
money had been appropriated since 1872,
at which time a balance of $5,000 remained
available. This was untouched until 1881,
when $362 was expended for re-examina
tion, and the local engineer recommended
that the remainder might be expended in
repairing the old government pier. Con
gress ignored this and made a fresh appro
priation of $5,000. Another instance
in Michigan was still more inexcus
able. Fifteen thousand dollars was appro
priated for building a harbor at the mouth
of Cedar river. That noble stream is a
creek with barely enough water to float
sawlogs and supplies power for a single
saw mill. The timber supply along its
banks will be exhausted within ten years.
The project was to build piers out into the
lake and to dredge a depth of sixteen feet.
To accomplish this work it would cost
$188,000, and by the time it was finished
there would be n* use for it whatever.
One of the items to which exception is
taken is the grant of $15,000 for Oconto
harbor, "Wisconsin. This appropriation il
lustrates very well the ability of some
members to make themselves "solid" with
their constituents by getting money for
their districts, irrespective of public needs.
The engineer? who made the sur
vey said that the "sum of $50,
--000 should be mad?, available
before operations are undertaken." The
sum of $50,000 was not made available,but
$15,000 was, and Representative Pound
and his constituents are naturally indig
nant because Secretary Lincoln says the
expenditure of the smaller sum would be
Some member, perhaps Mr. Towr.send,
will profess to be greatly astonished be
cause Mr. Lincoln declares that the "im
provement" of the harbor of Port Clinton,
0., will not be greatly beneficial to com
merce. But here is what the engineer re
ports about this harbor:
"I was unable to obtain a comparative
statement of the commerce for the last
few years, though I applied for it to the
collector of the district. The amount of
revenue collected during the eleven months
ended May 31, 1881, was $23.25; twenty
eight vessels, with an aggregate tonnage
of 1,990 tons, entered, and twenty-eight,
with an aggregate tonnage of 1,042 tons,
cleared during that period."
Clinch river, Tennessee, is in Mr. Lin
coln's black list, though the appropriation
of $3,000 for it gave some member
notoriety at home. This stream,
according to the engineers, needs $13,400
in addition to the $13,000 already
given, "to enable rivermen to bring
out cargoes at rain tides." Duck river in
the same state gets $3,000 and asked for
$25,000, "to secure two and one-half
to three and one-half feet during
a boating season of four to six months."
Cuivre river in this state was given $5,000
in addition to $7,000 already spent, while
$23,000 was reported to be needed; and
yet the engineers say there is "no reliable
information as to commerce, as the great
er part seeks market by rail."
These are samples of cases in a long list.
There is]one equally bad of $10,000 for Lam
prey river, New Hampshire, and another
no better for Maiden river, Massachusetts.
The famous Cheesequake creek, in New
Jersey, very properly appears in the list,
and is accompanied by the case of a $5,000
appropriation for the Cohansey creek, in
tho same state, which is "obstructed by
material coming from the streets of Bridge
ton." The secretary seems to be of the
opinion that a stream which is hardly ade
quate for the floating of logs and "garden
sass" is not of sufficient commercial im
portance to justify unlimited government
al expenditure. Upon that point a great
majority of the American people agree
with him. We trust his report will be
printed in pamphlet form and freely dis
tributed. It contains a large amount of
extremely readable information, for the
publication of which the count is in
debted to the able efforts of Messrs. Page
and Robeson and their fellow sufferers.
Knowledge of the fact that dams con
structed by beavers are seldom, if ever
washed away by freshets and floods, cause
the miners of Oreville, Cal., to look with
pleasure upon the work now being done by

Scientific dam builders have been unable
to construct there a dam that would hold
its own against the elements. It remains
to be seen if the beaver can do what man

Attempt to Hoot the Agitator Down—He
Denounces the H«>b as Cowardly Ruf
fians, a Disgrace to the Irish Nation—lm
portant meeting of Dignitaries in London
—The Position of the Liberal Party in
GREAT BRITAIN .
London, Jan. 14. —Davitt appeared at
Oldham last evening to deliver an address
on the Irish question. When he commenced
to speak, ho was howled down, by an or
ganized gang who attempted to storm the
platform, but were repulsed with chairs
by the occupants of the platform. A free
fight followed, chair legs and brass
knuckles beiiy the principal weapons.
Many persona were hurt. Davitt called
the disturbers a cowardly crew, and de
clared if twenty men would follow him he
would clear the hall of the gang. He
thereupon advanced toward the mob, but
was restrained by policemen. Ad
dressing his opponents again, Davitt
•said they were miserable, contempt
ible, cowardly dogs. When they were sit
ting in tavern?, he said, he was fighting
the British Government. They were
drunken blackguards and were a disgrace
to the name of nationalists. If Ireland
were made up of such she would earn the
contempt of the civilized world. He had
traveled through England, and English
men, although his enemies, had given him
a hearing. What a spectacle for
the English, he exclaimed, is afforded by
these professors of blackguardism at a
time when Ireland was asking for self
government. The police finally succeeded
in removing the disturbers from the hall.
A vote of thanks to Davitt then passed,
and the meeting shortly afterward ad
journed. . .■:' ■::'.: .

London, Jan. 13.—The prince of Wales
to-day unveiled the statue at the royal
military academy at Woolwich erected to
the memory of the French prince impe
rial by subscriptions of 25,000 officers and
men of the British army.
Lord Wolf Prince Luc.enlßonaparte,
Due de Bassans and a large and distin
guished company assisted at the unveiling.
In his remarks the prince of Wales said:
"It is obvious that this short ceremony is
not a political one in any sense of the
word. We are inaugurating a monument
to the memory of a ; young and gallant
prince, who fell fighting for the queen of
England." After tracing the career of
the prince imperial to the time of his
death, the prince of Wales concluded:
"His virtues, his blameless life, his
courage, his obedience to orders will prove
a bright example to the cadets educated
at Wcolwicb, who, when they gaze on the
statue inaugurated to-day will see the
features of a young and brave prince who
died with his face to the foe. The prince
of Wales was accompanied by his two
sons, and by the dukes of Edinburg and
Cambridge. The queen sent two wreaths.
The prince afterwards distributed the
Egyptian medals to patients in the Her
bert hospital. It is reported that the
government contemplates sending rein
forcements to South Africa.
Dublin, Jan. 13.The destitution in
some of the western districts of Ireland
is a subject of much concern to the poor
law guardians. The government has been
persistently urged to provide employment
by public works. In a few instances emi
gration is viewed with favor. • A number
of people have applied to the Ballinasloe
guardian, for assistance to emigrate to
Carey, and twenty other?, charged with
conspiracy with other persons not yet ar
rested, to murder government officials,
were remanded to-day.
LiMEiiicx. Jan. 13.—The police made a
raid for arms here last evening.
Dublin, Jan. —There was a riot to
night in Anne street, where the police and
marines were mobbed. Seventeen of the
persons arrested to-day have been exam
ined at a private investigation at Dublin
castle. Some of them had signed deposi
tions. Others were not asked to sign, and
some were not sworn. Several of them
have been imprisoned under Forster's act,
on suspicion of being concerned
in murders committed here, two
of them for the Phoenix park
crime. The knives used in the Phoenix
park murders were found behind the
house of one of the prisoners. The au
thorities finding there was no chance of
bringing home guilt to any of them,
grouped the men as all being informers in
the general charge of conspiracy. It is
rumored that five of the accused will be
examined next week as witnesses. The
police have warrants for the ar
rest of five other persons. The
knives supposed to have been used by the
Phoenix park assassins have been found to
fit the cuts in the clothes of Lord Freder
ick Cavendish and Burke. The authorities
are convinced they are the identical wea
pons with which the murders were com
mitted. Efforts are being made •to pro

lands in 1881 was more than eight times
as large as with Austria. It has increased
three-fold the past years. As showing
the importance the government of the

It is expected that about thirty members

laid before the committee. The matter of
proxies was mentioned to a prominent
member of the committee. He said he be

proxy must hail from the state from which
it was given. This will be enforced as far
as practicable. In the case of the' ter
ritories it will not be enforced.
It is understood that three plans of repre
sentation will be submitted to the com

at large for every state, two district, and
three,, delegates for every . Republican

■;.-";. A Small Freight War.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.] .
Milwaukee, Jan. 14. —The cut in rates
between Elgin and Chicago am! Elgin and
Milwaukee made by the Chicago & North
western company, two weeks ago, was
passed unnoticed by the St. Paul officials
until yesterday, when an order was issued
by W. G. Swan, superintendent of freight
traffic, to meet the cut with a corresponding
reduction. - This places the rati between
Elgin and this city and Elgin and Chicago
at five cents per 100 pounds. It is claimed
that the first reduction by the North
western was made in order to secure a fair
division of business. This company also
threatens to make , another reduc
tion, which will immediately be
followed by the St. Paul, as the
order to the agent at Elgin instructs that
official to meet all cuts by the Chicago &
Northwestern with a corresponding reduc
tion. It is asserted by railway men that
the Chicago & Northwestern have for some
time practiced a system of petty reduc
tions in freight and special passenger rates
between various western and northwestern
points and Chicago and Milwaukee in or
der to compete successfully with the St.
Paul company. * The probabilities are that
this will result in a rate war of some mag
nitude between these lines as regards the

The scandal gulch is about worked out
in the case of Mrs. Langtry. It will soon
be time for her to be robbed of $20,000
worth of diamonds. We want t© help the
old lady all we can, but we insist on a lit
tle variety in • the form of the advertise
ment. A schedule of this kind would do:
1. Robbed of $20,000 worth of diamonds,
one of them a priceless family heirloom,
and another the gift of the Prince of Wales.
[Good for three days by Associated Press.]
2. Diamonds recovered, and honesty in
a chambermaid richly rewarded. Detailed
interview expressing joy over the recov
ery. (Good for two days by associated
•3. Narrow escape from death on the
rail, detailed in half a column, winding up
with the)explanati«n[that the great aotrena
owes her life to the trilling circumstance
that the tram didn't run oil the track, and
there was no collision. (Good for two or
three columns of special dispatches.)
4. Great presenge of mind in the mid
dle of a performance in preventing a pan
ic, which would have been occasioned if a
small boy had let a lamp fall in the scene
room. [Good for specials to all metropol
itan journals for three days.]
These are a few of the things which
might take the place of Freddie Gebhardt
and Mrs. Labouchere. When they are ex
hausted we can furnish some more. We
cannot help remarking that Mrs. Langtry's
diamonds have remained unstolen quite
too long for a first-class star, but we pre
sume it is entirely owing to a pressure of
Freddie and Mrs. Labouchere.
How Some Girls Smoke.
Hudson (N.Y.) letter: Items are going
the rounds of the press of this neighbor
hood to the effort that the girls of this city
smoke cigarettes* We will not attempt to
say whether the practice is quite general
or not, but we certainly know of a few
girls that do. Real nice, sweet-looking
girls, too. Where do they get them They
are never seen to buy them. It is said they
are comfortably supplied • with cig
arettes jby : their gentleman •, friends,
who are in the : secret. . There j . are
not a • few charming ladies, members. of
leading social circles, who smoke their; fa
vorite brands after dinner and consider it
a deprivation to forego the luxury. My
lady goes up to her room, locks the door,
dons her pretty smoking habit, and has a
perfectly blissful smoke. After this comes
a nap,which gives her eyes a dreamy heavi
ness and her carriage all the languishment
so desirable in a modern belle. It is ru
mored often that the strolls which are
taken for autumn leaves are bat the oppor
tunity for. an enjoyable smoke with her
girl friends. . . \ • • . - •
* A Sulphur Mine. , '.;'l^,;'
. A purchaser of land in California always
stands a chance of finding it turn out to
be gold-bearing, or ; to _. possess stores of
quicksilver, copper, or other hidden min
eral wealth. One of these surprises has
befallen Dr, E. T. Bnrnette, -of ; Oakland,
who bought a hill near Los Gatos, about
sixty miles below San Francisco, for use as
a pasture ground. It was necessary to
dig, in order to' deepen a well, and a large
number of blocks that looked like ordinary
stones were taken out and thrown on one
side in heaps. ; Some of these stones, being
afterward used to build a fire upon for
cooking purposes, were found to be highly
combustible, burning rapidly with a bluish
flame. Further examination showed that
they were simply solid blocks of sulphur,
and that the whole hill is substantially an
immense mass of this mineral. With sul
phur selling at $20 a ton, Mr. Barnette's
1 purchase has turned out to be a greater
mass of treasure than many gold mines.

Sold His Wife but Couldn't Deliver.
Pbovidence, R. 1., Jan. 13. — Geac'omo
Leprittie, an Italian, came to this country
about three years ago and went to work on
a farm near this city. About a month ago
he concluded he would like to revisit the
scenes of his boyhood days in sunny Italy.
He commenced to make the necessary
preparations, and confided his intentions
to a fellow countryman who had boarded
for some time with him and followed the
same occupation of a farm laborer. This
man, by name Ignasio Bocchini,
was the creditor of Leprittio in the sum of
§57, and consequently asked him to settle
before leaving. This Leprittie promised
to do in a few days. In the meantime
Leprittie had discovered that Bocahini ad
mired his (Leprittie's) wife, who is " a
rather prepossessing Italian woman, and
suggested that, in consideration
of a receipt of the sum of >?. r<7,
ho would leave his wife in
Bocchini's possession. After a little
reflection his creditor agreed to the liar- \
gain, and a paper was privately drawn up
between the two men stating that for the
sum of $57 Leprittie's wife became the
property of Bocchini. The wife, however,
was not consulted on the subject, and
knew nothing of the matter until Tuesday
last. Leprittie left here on Monday
evening for New York, telling his
wife ho would return home in
about two hours, as he was going toOlney
ville. It has been ascertained that he
sailed for Europe on the following day,
and then Bocchini showed the paper to
Mrs. Leprittie, claiming her as his proper
ty. She, however, emphatically
refused to recognize the trans
action and -Id Bocchini that if he
did not leave at once she would have him
prosecuted. B. echini now want 3to know
what redress he van have, and talks about
consulting a lawyer on the subject. Mr. I
Bocchini is evidently badly left. Rhode I
Island lawyers are peculiar, but nowhere
do they recognize traffic in wives. \
The Buffalo, N. V., district attorney de
cides that the ' Importers' Tea company,
which does business by selling tea and cof
fee in packages that contain prizes, is a
lottery. A civil suit for $30,000 has been
commenced against the company, and it is
stated that the authorities are preparing
to begin criminal proceedings. It is esti
mated that in the last week or ten days the
concern cleared from $40,000 to $50,000 by
the scheme in Buffalo. ; " ; .
