Of Marking Down Window's Vote Day
by Day.
' Senators Pillsbiirj and J. B. Giinilan
Arise lo a (Question of Privilege
ob the "Globe."
And Pledging Renewed Fidelity to the
"Lost Cause."
Mr. Hirfrs occupied the chair at the
convention, which convened at the usual
time. Immediately after the calling
of the roll Senator C. A. Pillsbury
arose to a question of privilege and called
attention to the following, from the Globe
of yesterday:
A secret meeting was held at the <>in o'
S?*ritor CiiPP. A." PjTJsbury at the Merchants
night before last, at which it was proposed to
bring out John B. PillsbuTy as a dark horse
when Windom is out if the way. It is with this
view that a desperate effort has been made by
Senators J. B. G^lani and C. A. Pfllsbnry,
the proprietors of the John S. boom, t >
keep the Wmdoni force intact. They had
hop-d to keep them together to transfer them
bodily at the opporti le time. Finding the dis
integration impossible to check, they have hasti
ly summoned Windom from Washington on the
pl"-i that ho can save himself by coming. This
they know, at heart, is impossible,but they want
his presence to aid them in transferring Ids
votes to John S. Pillsbury. That is what the
coming of Windom means.
He claimed that he had been constant
and honest in his course of supporting
Windom, but if the statement made be
, true he|would be the most despicable of
traitors and unworthy the confidence of any
honest man. He wished publicly to state
that he had never attended a meeting eith
er in his own room or that of any other
person, when the question of electing
Gov. John S. Pillsbury Unit
ed States senator was considered,
nor had he ever spoken or written to Gov.
Pillsbury on the subject. He claimed that
nobody was more anxious to see Windom
elected than himself, and he knew that
Gov. Pillsbury would also oe rejoiced at;
the success of Windom. He had never
spoken to any person in the legislature
or outside of it in regard to this matter,
and he challenged anybody to prove that
he had. He considered the statement a
vile slander, one of many which the oppo
nents of Wiudom had been circulating to
reduce and disintegrate his strength.
Senator J. B. Gilfillan next rose to a
question of privilege; something, he said,
he very rarely did, and if his own interests
were only affected he would not rise now.
He would be indifferent to whatever might
come from any public newspaper. He
deemed it his duty now, as others
were affected. He also called attention to
the above publication, saying it referred
to a recent caucus in which he was
charged of being a participant. He denied
having been at such a meeting, either at
Senator Pillsbury's room or elsewhere.
• He continued: I wash my hands of
any participation in any such
an affair. As far as
the candidacy of Gov. Pillsbury is con
cerned, either as a dark or white horse, the
subject has never been alluded to between
the governor and myself in any manner or
in regard to his being a candidate at any j
time. In another place the same paper
"J. B. GflfiUi n tbrew down the gauntlet last
night. Under •><> chcumstances would ho sup
port any anti-Win candidate."
This is ally untrue. I did say this
referring to rumors of the bringing out of
men not fairly in tho race, that I would
set my face against any dark horse not
fairly trotted cut by professed Windom
supporters. In this I had no allusion to
regular candidates. They say Mr. Win
dom has beeu sent for and is coming to be
used as a dictator in supporting Pillsbury.
The bare statement ought to ba its own
refutation. It is a fact that in view of
certain circumstances, a telegram was sent
to urge Mr. Wicdom to come on, and
against hi-* persistent and decided determ
ination not to be present, he has seen the
force of the reasons and, I am happy to
say, he will be here probably next Monday.
No other parties responding to the invita
tion of Chairman Hicks to make explana
tions, the convention proceeded to ballot
twice, both times with the same result.
Mr. J. Smith, Jr., then suggested that such
voting was unprofitable, and the coaven
tion adjourned.

The joint convention then adjourned.
The honorable senators were in their
Beats three-quarters of an hour yesterday,
fifteen minutes of which was consumed by
the devotional exercises of the chaplain,
and the balance in routine business, which
consisted of the introduction of six bills and
the adoption of two resolutions authorizing
the appointment of additional clerks,which
will presumably be needed when the legis
lature shall have elected a United States
senator, and get ready to attend to the
public business. At present there don't
appear to be an accumulation of business
calling for additional clerks. ' The talk
about the senate chamber yesterday in
dicated that there was no hope whatever
entertained of a reaction in favor of Win
dom, and that now it was only a ques
tion of who they should rally upon. So
many aspirants have the senatorial bee in
their bonnets that the old stagers think it
best to let the aforesaid bees buzz yet a
little while longer before the hopes of these
statesmen are blasted. However, there is
a difference of opinion upon this subject,
some very astute politicians believing that
a bold and aggressive movement in favor of
the "dark horse" is the right move, reason
ing that many of the Windomers who now
stick to the scooped candidate do bo from
sheer lack of a candidate to take his place,
who has a reasonably good prospect of de
curing an election. So the matter rests
over Sunday. Meantime the public busi
ness is being neglectod.
Routine Report.

Devotional exercises by the chaplain.

A communication •was received from th«
governor announcing his approval of the
bills appropriating money to finish and
furnish the state capitol; appropriating
money to pay legislative expenses, and
several other bills of minor importance.
Senator Rice moved that when the senate
adjourns jt adjourn till 10 o'clock on Mon
day. Carried.
The senate then took a recess to meet the
house of representatives in joint session,
after which it again met and adjourned
without transacting any further business.
Nothing bat the required continuation
of balloting for senator would have kept a
quorum in St. Paul yesterday. As it was,
the small amount of business before the
house was quickly disposed of. Nothing
out of the usual course happened. It has
become the custom of this house to dispose
of local bills very promptly and get them
out of the way.
Mr. Merriam's bill relating to the Ram
sey county almshonse, seeks to keep the
management of that institution out of the
hands of politicians. There was perhaps
more consultation among the members in
the ante rooms and lobbies in relation to
the senatorial question and the coming of
Windoin, and the feeling that his advent at
this time would be unfortunate for his
cause was very general. It was looked upon
as an indication of alarm and despair on
the part of the Windom men—in fact a
consultation in the case of a dying man.
It was thought it would prove embarrasing
to some, and do not the slightest good.

candidate here. Mr. Giimshaw's amend

vote and the house stands adjourned to

The Useful Encouraging Itself—What the
People Have Long Wanted—Now They
Have It, and Appreciate it.
"This is what we have wanted, on the hill,
for a long time," said a prominent whole
sale merchant to a Globe reporter, as they
alighted from a St. Anthony Hill car a few
evenings since, at the corner of Western
and Nelson avenues, just opposite St. Jo
seph's Academy, and walked into the splen
did establishment of C. B. Slevin, Etq.
who has reoently opened a striotly first
class staple and fancy grocery store at the
point indicated. "We have had," said he,
"for a number of years, grocery stores up
here, where you could obtain the bare ne
cessaries of life by paying hill prices, but a
first-class establishment, where you can
find all that thought or fancy could sug
gest to tempt the pallet, which down town
grocery stores afford, and at their prices,
is something we have long needed. "Here,"
said he, "you will find St. Paid Prices Cur
rent, and any article therein mentioned in
this line you can get at quoted prices."
Passing through the establishment the dis
play was simply superb. Mr. Slevin, who
has had long experience in his line of busi
ness before coming to St. Paul, has taken
especial pains in the selection and display
of his stock, and has a corps of trained as
sistants,who are attentive to the wants of his
patrons. His magnificent stock includes all
classes of f ruits.f rer-h dried and canned,both
foreign and domestic, all kinds of bottled
goods, Olive oils, domestic and foreign.
Burnett's extracts, canned and deviled
meats and fish, scrimps, sardines, jellies
and prepared honey, the celebrated Oneida
Community's full line of canned fruits and
vegetables, California fruits, fresh and pre
pared, fresh vegetables and all delicasies
which can be found •in this or any other
market. Mr. Slevin, in staple groceries
has nothing but the best, and absolutely
pure, and defies competition, both in qual
ity and price. He makes a specialty of
fine winter wheat flour, furnishing it to his
customers at equal prices, with the same
grade of Minnesota spring wheat flour. He
assured the Globe representative that he
came to St. Anthony Hill to do business,
believing that a strictly first-class estab
lishment where nothing but the best was
kept, where everything in his line obtain
able was to be found, and where the fir3t
principle of business was a determination
to give satisfaction, must eventually suc
ceed, and from the outlook of his estab
lishment and the determination expressed
by the proprietor, the prospects of Buccess

In a social way the past week has been
one of general jollity. The number of
public gatherings has been large and in
this respect it has been one of the most
successful weeks of the season. There
have been a couple of masquerade balls,
the one at the Athon;euni by the German
society on Monday night being
particalarly brilliant and elegant.
But somehow it did not eclipse the efforts
of former years. Some of the older so
ciety folks indeed, who have attended fates
of the society, for 10, these many years,
complain that it was not quite up to the
standard of former years. At any rate the
attendance was large and as usual the ap
pointments were all that could have been
desired. There have been, during the
week, a great many balls, parties, dances
and assemblies. Terpsichors is the only
one of the graces which has been signally
honored, her shrine having been the center
of attractions for the gay and giddy throng
throughout the week. Outside of one or
two quiet private parties and a couple of
notable weddings, there have been no es
sontially home socials. It seems indeed,
that Hymen is in a fi-.i? w*y to sink into
outright disrespect and neglect.
It is high time an end be put to this
apathy; the matrimonial market baa none
begging and the god of love, unless things
change for the better soon, needs must
shift his honey-ladeu darts and quivers
for a suit of sable and engage in the un
dertaking business. The indifference will
not be tolerated by his lordship much
longer or a war may be looked for that
will rival the famous controversy that took
place about Mrs. Venus.

Mr. Thomas Lonergan and bride re
turned from the East last Wednesday, and

Twenty-Third Semi-Annual
Boston le PWloiii Honse,
Comer Third and Robert Street 3, St Paul, Minn.
There was really but little change yes
terday in the railroad situation, with ref
erence to the severe storms, which, start
ing on Wednesday last, swtpt over the
whole Northwest and also embraced within
its scope, Kansas, Nebraska, and lowa.
We have had snow storms that have de
layed trains and blocked up the roads
for many weeks together but
never have we had so severe
a storm as the present. The intense oold
which extends over broad belts of terri
tory has driven the mercury down to 40
degress below zero. This extreme cold
does not mark an isolated instance or lo
cation, but spreads over a broad territory.
At Brainerd, Crookston, Grand Forks and
Larimore, the mercury dropped to 40 be
below, and 35 below was the warmest spot
that could be foand any where in the re
gion referred to. Of course, with this de
gree of cold to contend with, it is much
more difficult to handle the trains and
clear the tracks of snow. All the roads
leading to the west and northwest were at
work sending out supply and work trains,
snow plows and all the usual materials for
clearing the tracks and aiding in the work
of putting the trains through. .
The Albert Lsa route was in substan
tially the same situation yesterday that it
was on Thursday. The Minneapolis &
St. Louis road is free from obstruction
but on the Burlington, Cedar Rapids &
Northern the same trouble exists that
stopped travel on Thursday. There was a
good deal of snow and the wind was blow
ing furiously, carrying it upon the track
pretty . nearly as fast as it could be re
moved. The managers of the road think
they will be able to bring the trains
through on time after to-dty.
The bulletin board at the union depot
yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clack contained
the following:
The Northern Pacific train due here at
7:40 a. m. abandoned.
The St. Paul & Manitoba train due here
at 7:30 a. m. abandoned. The train due at
8:30 a. m. will be in about 6 o'clock.
Chicago, St. Paul & Omaha—No. 2 train
due here at 11:55 a. m. abandoned. No. 1
train due at 2:25, three hours late.
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul—No. 3
train three hours late. There will be no
train on the lowa & Minnesota division to
day. The Owatonna 4:30 train will proba
bly leave on time.
This is the record as stated to the public
by the bulletin board. On the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul road there was trou
ble. The river division was not interrupt
ed though the trains were somewhat de
layed. The wheeling is reported to be un
usually heavy aad the engir»e3 have very
•bard work to pull the trains through. The
lowa & Minnesota division is wholly block
aded and no trains are running on it. The
8:10 train started out at 10:30 to make an
effort to get down some distance, but it
was not very successful. The Flying
Dutchman has been wholly aband
oned between La Crosse and
Minneapolis. Passengers for
Dubuque and down that way will have to
take the 12:45 p. m. train, and lay over at
La Crosse and take the Dutchman at that
point. -■'*):'■
The Hastings & Dakota road is wholly
closed and there is no telling when it will
be opened again. A train was started out
on it yesterday morning, but at noon yes
terday it was not known how for she got.
All the available force is at work to open
the road, but the task is a heavy one.
The St. Paul & Manitoba road has made
a good fight and trains were all coming all
right. Both Breckenridge and Winnipea
trains left yesterday morning on
time, and were making running
time. Last night the trains started out on
time. No part of the road is now ob
obstructed and all freight as well as pas
senger trains are running the same as
usual. , The weather all along the road is
vary cold but quiet and calm.
The Chicago, St. Paul, & Omaha road
experienced a good deal of interruption on
its western division. At 7:10 a. m. the St.
James train got in. The through train
due at noon yesterday did not arrive till
2 o'clock this morning. A passenger train
left in the morning, and one in the
afternoon and ~at last • accounts
they were going along through
without serious difficulty. The weather
along the western division of this road is
quiet and still, but very cold, the mercury
running from 10 to 25 below zero every
where. The cold belt seems to be as wide
on this road as it is in the northwest,
though the degree of cold is not quite so
intense. Generally speaking the track can
be kept clear, though the winds pile the
snow back upon the rails. The snow is
from eighteen to twenty inches ' deep all
along the line, through the woods and ev
erywhere else. No one remembers seeing
the snow so deep on a dead level as it
now is. The snow has been
coming in little quantities day by day,
and up to Wednesday, had remained quiet
on the ground. On Wednesday, however,
the winds came and lifted the newly fallen
snow onto the track in huge drifts. The
managers of the road hope to have it open
and ready for use in a regular way to-day. I
The cold on the Northern Pacific is rep- 1
resented to be very severe. At Fargo the I
mercury shows 40 below, Jamestown 40 I
below, Dickinson 30 below, Forayth 8 I
below, Glendive 28 below, Miles City 18 I
below, and at Billings 14 below. , At For- I
a great storm of wind was raging, I
At Glendive and Miles City a light snow I
was falling. The train that left St. Paul I
Friday night reached Fargo yesterday sev
eral hoars late, and the train that should
lavo arrived here Friday morning did not
get in till last evening. No train was
started out yesterday morning, for the
reason that the passengers had all gone
away from the depot.. The Dakota divis
ion wiil.be opened to regular travel
to-day unless the wind should rise a^ain
and sweep the snow upon the track. It is
expected that after to-day trains will ran
regularly on this road.
Messrs. Merrill, Meyers, Clarke and Bird,
of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road,
arrived in St. Paul yesterday and' left for
the East in the evening. •
Mr. Barnes, the general passenger agent
of the Northern Pacific road, returned yes
terday from Fargo.

A Proposition to Appropriately Honor
.« His Memory.
T™ he Editor of ths Globe. «
It is an old adage that "blood is thicker
than water," and as a general rale, this
adage is strongly exemplified by our
wealthy fellow citizens in the distribution
of their fortunes by their last wills.
The exceptions to thi3 rule are indeed
rare. And there has not been, perhaps in
the Union, so rare an exception to this
rule as in the case of our late fellow
townsman Justus C. Ramsey who, having
lived an unmarried life himself, yet made
tho motherless and fatherless children of
others — who indeed are, of all unfortunate
| beings —the most in need of kind
friends, equal heirs to hi* estate
with his blood relations; by his
munificent bequests, to the Cs ''.iolic and
Protestant Orphan asylums of this city,
each asylum sharing equally with the oth
er heirs. * It has occurred to me that a life
sized statue of the testator, surrounded by
those of a group of little children with
smiling faces, placed in Rice park,dedicat~
ed to "the beautiful and the good," would
not be an inappropriate recognition by
our citizens of this noble, disinterested ;
and philanthropic act. And, at no distant
day, that an organization, to exist perpetu
ally, should be put in operation by the
clergy of all denominations of our city,
with the co-operation of such ladies as
Mrs. Charlotte Van Cleve, Mrs. Emily
Huntington Miller, Mrs. John S. Prince,.
Mrs. Worthington, Mrs. P. H. Kelly,
Mrs. Wm. P. Murray and Mrs. Edmund
Rice, with others whose names are well
known for their philanthropic and Chris
tian work, that could be named, for the
purpose of procuring such a statue as I
have referred to, and providing for its.
care, and to arrange for the annual com- •
memoration of the birthday of the de
ceased, the 13th day of June. It is the
month of flowers, and the children of our
city would readily understand the pur
pose of the observance, and it would be
an affectionate and joyful duty for
them to participate in such
memorial service annually, the memory of
him who was the orphan's friend.
Such a monument as I have referred to,
appropriately designed, placed in our
beautiful little park, would be dearly cher
ished by all classes of our people, and
though silent, would be potent in its influ
ences for good.
The writer has learned from good au
thority that Mr. Ramsey conferred with
Dr. David Day, at the time, in regard to
making this bequest, and would it not be
a suitable move for the doctcr to publicly
intimate his willingness to meet the par
ies above named and other?, say at the
city council chamber, at an early day for
the purpose of action in da matter? Ke
spectfully, ' S:H. Woor>.
