In Georgia the wheat is ripe enough to

Some of the ladies in Cleveland, Ohio,

The Philadelphia Press asks some lead
ing questions concerning Mr. Walter
Evans *'30G." It desires to be informed if
he is honest, if he is competent, if he is
efficient and if he is a Republican. Brother
Smith draws a deep sigh and says all these
things must be taken on trust. This is the
way the Rapublicans make life a weariness
to the President.
The fact that Evans, the new commis
sioner of internal revenue, carries the Re
publican delegation to the next national
convention in his breeches pocket, is
thought to have been the principal reason
for his appointment. If this is so, it ar

The Massachusetts Republicans are
in tibout as close quarters as their brethren
in Ohio — and like Japhet in search of a
father— are trying to find some one to
undertake the hazard of being the Repub
lican candidate for Governor. The very
best thing they can do is to nominate Ben
Butler. They can then elect their candi
date, and as Governor Ben will be elected
any way, by this course the Republicans
will be saved much tronble, and get some
of the glory at the same time.
The Pennsylvania legislature is haviDg
a wearisome struggle with the congression
al apportionment bill. The Republicans
are willing to take nineteen of the twenty
eight districts. Senator Stewart, the In
dependent leader, thinks this is too greedy,
and he is willing to give the Democrats
ten districts. The Democrats claim
a fair division and ask for fourteen,
which under the circumstances seems no
more than right. There is so much divis
ion that it is hardly possible that the
matter can be decided thip session.

The Republicans of Ohio are so much
alarmed for the fate of their party the
they have importuned Capt. Conger, chair
man of the state committee to change the
time of holding the nominating conven
tion, and pursuant to his call a meeting is
to be held to-morrow to see what can be
done. The passage of the Scott liquor law
has not proven so smart a caper as it was
imagined it would. Foster's bo^sism has
made a royal roa id of quaking among the
■very eleot. In addition to this movement
an effoit is to be made to prevent a decis
ion by the supreme court regarding the
Scott law as long as possible, and until
after election if that can be brought about.
Things are working.
Such returns as are at hand from the
Virginia election show that Mahoneism is
tottering to its final fall. With the re
source of unlimited patronage at com
mand Mahone has suffered a defeat that is
important as a precursor to his defeat in
the fall elections, when members of the
legislature are to bo chosen. The Presi
dent has already begun to recede from his
alliance— offensive and defensive — with
Mahone. Mahone made a bitter
crusade upon the other parties and
fought valiantly to retain his power. Hav
ing lost the prestige of success Mahone is
reduced to the rank of a small man, and
having no particular influence in Vir
ginia, or anywhere, he is being shorn of
hi 3 quota of patronage and kicked out of
camp. The administration has no interest
in any one who does not bring a grist to
its mill. The country will now bo made
to resound with the tales of Mahone's
corruptness. He has committed the sin
of failure, which it is impossible to over
look. The riddance is a good one, no mat
ter what means were employed to gain it.

The New B wie House and Public
The council committee on public build
ings held a meeting at the office of the city
attorney last evening, with that official
and Market Master McManu6, in attend
ance. The plans of Architect Bassford for
the new fire engine house, corner of Eighth
and Minnesota streets, were accepted and
will be favorably reported to the council.
The building is to be fifty by 150 and three
stories in height, as heretofore outlined,
and will contain apartments for the chief
of the department, the superintendent of
the fire alarm telegraph, general repair
shop, etc. The cost is to be $20,000.
The matter of regulations for the Mar
ket house was then taken up, and City At
torney Murray was instructed to draw up
an ordinance to be laid before the
n<--. »-.<.oting of the council for that pur
pose. This ordinance is to be in its princi
pal featuios a copy of the present law, and
will prohibit huckstering, and the pur
chase, for sale, from gardeners, before 10
o'clock a. m. To accommodate extreme
outlying points, however. iL is probable
provision will be made for establishing
market limits on St. Anthony hill, Day

beyond the Manitoba railroad shops, where
sheds will be erected, and marketing al

against prohibition as a distinctive meas

The annual report of the secretary was
submitted as follows:
In presenting this report for the year
just closing it is well to reveiew the work
done and note the progress made.
The reading room has been well supplied
with papers, both secular and religious. A
new library case was lately secured and
already it is filled with books. A number
of books were donated, and thirty-seven
volumes of magazines bound. The library
now consists of more than 800 volumes,
with an additional loan of 150. The at

good and much larger than last yeari

The young men's Bible study has con
tinued through the year through the un
tiring efforts of Mr. Nash. The class al
though not large has been faithful in at
tendance and in the earnest and prayerful
study of the Word.
The worker's training class met the
fourth Thursday evening in every month,
and a brief Bible reading, an essay on
some biblical subject, and a topic relative
to association work for general discussion
made up the main part of the programme
for the evening's work.
The method followed has been highly
commended, and has met the approval of
The day and week of prayer appointed
by the international committee was ob
served. Laymen and ministers assisted in
the services, and a good interest w.s mani
Special religious meetings were held
from time to time with good results.
The union teaohers' meeting was re
sumed under the direction of Rev. Mr.
Breed, in January last, and continued un
til the Ist of May. This has been one »f
the most practical meetings in Bible study
in the city, and many of the teachers have
availed themselves of the opportunity of
fered for a more thorough preparation of
the les3on. It is to be regretted that they
cannot be sustained for a much longer
period during the year.
A union gospel meeting under the aus
pices of the Y. M. C. A. was held Sabbath
evenings during the month* of July and
August last in Market hall. Aside from
the hearty assistance rendered by our
home ministry, valuable aid wa3 given by
several noted divines from abroad. The
atirring addresses of Rev. Dr. Cuyler es
pecially will long be remembered by our
young men, who had the good fortune of
The gospel meetings and song services
held Sunday afternoons have been well at
tended, and since January 1 have had a
crowded attendance almost every Sabbath.
This is the only general meeting regular
ly held. From the warm-heart expressions
of many who attend these meetings and
especially the encouraging remarks of
strangers who have come in and testified to
the great benefit derived from hearing the
word of truth so forcibly expressed,
we believe that untold good
has been done, and as to the
results we simply leave them with him
who knows and understands the heart of
every man. A number of requests for
prayer have been presented, and souls have
been blessed and brought out of darkness
into the sunlight of gospel truth.
THE SECULAR \fOEK .
Besides giving due heed to the religious
part of our work some attention has been
given to the social. Several strangers'
social meetings were held, and at eaoh
meeting a number of strangers wore pres
ent. Two general sociables or receptions
were given during the year. At these the
first part of the evening was devoted to
music, reading or addresses, followed by
the serving of refreshments, mainly fur
nished by the ladies. The remainder of
the evening was spent is a service of song.
Several lectures and talks were given
during the fall and winter by ministers and
business men of the city . Most of these
were well attended and all greatly enjoyed.
A musical entertainment under the direc
tion of our president was given to a crowd
ed house. A literary olass was organized
in January, which met regularly every
week for three months. Three publio en
tertainments were given by the class,
which called out large audiences. Through
these influences a number of strangers
have been led to the rooms and their ac
quaintance made. This work should be
continued, encouraged and enlarged upon
so that it may become more useful and
X. M. C. A. WANTS.
The wants of the association are always
many. But there are some special needs
which should receive due consideration
and immediate action. A good sized
audience room is needed. Our Sunday
afternoon meetings and publio entertain
ments have been more than crowded at
times, and the compactness of the audi
ence discourages attendance, as several
have so expressed themselves. This should
be remedied as soon as possible. We are
in great need of the standard monthlies
and quarterlies for our reading room.
They would add much to our general
reading, and I assure you that they are
eagerly sought after when miscellaneous
numbers are placed upon the tables. A
much larger increase in membership
could easily be secured if every member
wonld only take it in hand to
secure the membership of worthy young
men with whom they oome in contact.
In conclusion I would urge upon the offi
cers and members a more hearty co-opera
tion in the great work before us. Thou
sands of young men are coming to our
city annually. They are far away from
home restraints, and they soon become
careless and even reckless. They need
your assistance. Will you lend them a
helping hand? Seoure for the Y. M. C. A.
pleasant, comfortable roomi and plenty of
them. Furnish and supply th6m well, and
then direct, support, invite and assist and
by the aid of him who directs all things
wisely and for the best a far greater work
will be accomplished. Brethren, take
hold and work, work, work, for "the night
cometh, when no man can work."

KING PAYS $250.
And the Prosecution for Manslaujhter is
Ended— The Seed Wheat Libel Suit.
[Special Telegram to the Globo.J
Wabashaw, May 29.— This was the day
set for the decision of Judge Start upon
the motion for a new trial in the case of
John King, pilot of the steamer Centen
nial, It will be remembered that last sum
mer the steamer Centennial ran over a
fishing skiff at Lake City and one of the
men was drowned. Capt. Tom Davidson
and Pilot John King were indicted for man
slaughter and the former acquitted and the
latter conviected at a previous term of
court. When court assembled this morn
ing Hon S. L. Campbell, of counsel for
the defense, stated that his client could not
afford the expense of a new trial. The last
trial had cost him nearly a thousand dol
lars and he preferred to submit to the sen
tence of the court. It was not claimed'
that Mr. King's conduct was criminal.
On the contrary the evidence had
shown his excellent charactor. He was a
poor man with a large family and counsel
trusted the court would deal leniently with
him. The counsel then withdrew the mo
tion for a new trial.
Judge Start, calling Mr. King up, asked
is he had anything to say why sentence
should not be passed, and he responded
nothing." In response to questions by
the court he said he was
a poor man with a family
of six children. The judge stated that the
law left the penalty to be inflicted largely
at the discretion of the court. The good
character of the defendant and the fact
that during a quarter of a century as pilot
no life had been lost or parson injured by
his conduct, previous to the Centennial
disaster, went far to mitigate, the offense.
The court did not feel that the end 3cf
justice demanded a sentence to the peni
tentiary. The court would therefore
impose a fine, and in fixing that amount
what would be a small sum to a man of
means, would be large sam to a poor man
like the defendant. The fine imposed
would therefore be $250, and the defend
ant to stand committed until the fine was
A few minutes later Mr. King paid the
fine and was discharged.
The next court item was the libel suit
of Geo. R. Bryant, familiarly known as
seed-wheat Bryant against Col. W. H. Fei
ler. Bryant was a member of the legis
lature in 1869, elected in opposition to
Senator Ramsey, but at the critical time
he changed front and voted for Ramsey.
He was accused of having sold out for
$1,500 and about a year ago, as he seem
ed likely to secure a land
office in Dakota, Col. Feller wrote a letter
repeating this accusation, and published it
in the Plainview Nmos, Mr. Bryant went
before the grand jury and had him indict
ed. From present indications there is not
much danger of conviction. This is the
first suit for criminal libel which has ever
come to trial in this state.
A Senator Spit Upon.

In the house of a clergyman in Lowell,
Mass., the ''harmless necessary cat" is a
great family pet, the good dominie fol
lowing the example of Montague in be
guiling many aa iule hour with the grace
ful gambols of puss, and surreptitiously
conveying dainty morsels to her from his
own dish. On going to breakfast the other
day, what was parson's surprise to see in
the very centre of his plate a young rat,
placed there with almost mathematical
precision by the cat, as if to express her
gratitude for the many favors received
from her master by returning the best gift
in her power to make, denying herself a
tidbit to prove her affection. It ia needless
to say that puss' breach of decorum was
condoned in view of the spirit which
seemed to prompt it.

Danville, 111., May 29.— John Shultz,
long and favorably known a3 a miner in
this vicinity, hung himself in the stairway

to-day. The deceased was fifty-six years
old, and leaves a wife. Financial embar
rassment was the cause of his self murder.
THE STRIKING MINERS.
Bellville, 111, May 29.— Everything is
quiet here this morning. The inquest on
the dead striker will begin at 11 o'clock.
The Reinecke mine, where last evening's
unfortunate affair occurred, is working
thi3 morning under the protection of the
militia. This is a machine mine, doe 3 not
employ regular miners, and was working
yesterday under an agreement made with
the miners some days ago. If any further
trouble occurs, it will be at mines some
distance from here, which at this writing
have not been heard from. The sheriff
reports all quiet at the pits in this im
mediate vicinity. The streets of this city
are crowded with miners and citizens, dis
cussing the events of yesterday. The fir
ing by the militia is not generally rsceiv
ed in a favorable light.
St. Louis, May, 29.— The man killed at
the Reineke mine near Belleville, 111., last
evening ha 3 been identified as Fred Hoff
meister, a glass-blower from Fittsbnrg.
He has been in Belleville two weeks. The
glass-blowers of Belleville have been on a
strike and some of them were with the
striking miners yesterday, which accounts
for Hoffmeister's presence at the Reinecke
mine. The papers this morning publish a
lengthy account of the affair at the Rose
Hill, Reinecke and Morrison mines yester
day, but they contain no material facts
not reported in these dispatches. The
Edwardsville militia remain at the Rein
ecke mine, but the Verber and Taylorsville
companies have returned home. There
seems to be uo doubt that Deputy Sheriff
Anthony ordered the troops to fire on the
mob, but not until several shots had been
fired by the strikers.
A special grand jury has been convened
at Evaasville by Judge Snyder for the pur
pose of indicting those who composed the
mob who took possession of mine No. 5,
and maltreated the men employed. There
are no indications of mob law in this vi
cinity to-day, and from the expression of
citizens of this locality heard on all sides
it would not be well for a mob of any kind
to assemble with the idea of violating the
law again by attempting to interfere with
the rights of others.
Belleville, 111., May 29.— The prison
ers, about thirty-two in number, were
brought before a justice here about noon
and were released on their own recogni
zance, after which a great crowd of miners
took and marched them through the court
house square and about the town. The
prisoners' counsel then made speeches a . 1
advised them to keep quies and await tha
coroner's investigation. At the inque all
the law officers testified that the miners
fired the first shots, and fifteen witnesses,
five of them womea, swore the troops fired
first. The inquest will be continued
tomorrow. The dead man is named
Henderson, was a miner, but well
connected and educated, having a
brother in Chicago and father in Pitts
burg. He had beeu away from home
three years and worked a mp.chirie in the
Knecket mine next to the Reinecke pit.
He will be buried to-morrow, and all the
miners in thfc district are ordered out and
a great demonstration will be made. The
miners are now ready to arbitrate, and a
committee of three were appointed to
meet with the board of trade of Belleville
and consult with mine owners and effect,
if possible, some compromise under which
the men can return to work. The gover
nor has ordered the militia away from the
Rfcinecke mine and twenty deputy sheriffs
are now on the guard there.

Kansas City, Mo., May 29.— 0n the
afternoon of the 17th of April Miss Anna
Bauerbin, aged twenty-five, daughter of
John Bauerbin, a wealthy German of this
city, mysteriously disappeared from home.
Diligent search by the detectives was un
successful, and no clue was obtained until
to-day when a dispatch from Boonville,
150 miles below here on the Missouri river'
announced that a body had been found in
the river there by a fisherman and identi
fied as that of Miss Bauerbin. The body
had evidently been in the water some
time and an examination revealed a bullet
wound in the back, the ball having travers
ed the lumbar region and emerged near
the groin. No other marks of violence ap
peared, and the jewelry upon her person
was undisturbed. The fact of murder is
established almost withou a doubt, but
the circumstances surrounding it remains
a complete mystery.

The largest manufactory of ball bats is
at Hastings, Mich., where 100 men are em

to be the demand for the present year.
Ash is the staple bat wood. A proportion

are made of cherry. Including the differ
ent woods and sizes, there are twenty-two
styles of bats made for the trade, ranging
in price at retail from ten cents for a ju
venile article up to $1.50 for an aesthetic
cherry bat. The Hastings factory will use
in the neighborhood of 350,000 feet of ash,
250,000 feet of basswood, and 50,000 feet
of cherry lumber this season, which means
about 2,500 gross or thirty carloads of
bats. Another bat factory at South Bend,
Ind.. will consume about 125,000 feet of
lumber, and one at Grand Rapids, Mich.,
75,000 feet more.

Misprints are wonderful, and are often
such as seem invented by the evil one him
self, there is so perverse an ingenuity
about them. Some recur after all alter
ations, when the printer is quite certain
that he is and must be right. Victor Hugo
onoe used the word "varlet" in one of his
plays. It came back again and again
printed "valet." Mr. Louis Blanc, when
living in England, wrote an article in
English, in which he correctly gave the
the French phrase "a outrauce." But
since one of the commonest mistakes
made by Englishmen is to use that phrase,
"a l'outrance," M. Louis Blanc, in spite of
all his corrections, got it finally printed
wrong. How could a Frenchman possibly
know better than a British workman? If
this were so, where were the uses of
