ST. PAUL, FRIDAY, JUNK 15. 1883.
Logan is an avowed candidate for the
presidency and Sherman is another. The
latter declines to discuss the merits of the
former from motives of delicacy, Logan
being a brothe senatorr.
John Sherman says half the people of
thecointry believed Tiiden was cheated
out oi the Presidency in 187»;. and a little
more than half believed he wasn't. The
"little more" was probably Eliza Pinks
Bliss did not expect an acquittal, but a
disagreement. He wanted to go over the
ground again. More than a years labor
at the rate of $150 a day, only served to
whet his appetite and zeal in the cause of
official morality.
Sherman thinks it is a little premature
ti talk of pre>ideatial candidates, but un
less the literary bureaus are at fault he is
evidently not of the belief that it is pre
mature to thiDk about them and to lay the
wires for the nomination.
The voters of the United States prob
ably paid very handsoroly for the Brady
<fc Co. Star Route trial service at the time
of it, and now it seems they have got to
pay a pretty heavy bill for legal male ser
vice on top of it. Any way to spend the
$30,000,000 surplus without paying up the
nation il debt too promptly.
The acquittal of the star route con
spirators puts a stop to a far more shame
less robbery than that of which they were
charged — the depletion of the treasury to
the extent of about a, thousand dollars a
day for the employment of half a
dozen fourth-rate lawyers to conduct the
prosecution. If no other satisfaction can
be obtained from the verdict, this is mat
ter for congratulation.

soldier boy serves out his sentence in the
Albany penitentiary .
Of course no one questions the guilt of
the star route thieves, but a great many
questioned the justice of making them the
victims while their political party was
particeps criminis. There was no more
reassn for convicting Dorsey than there
was for convicting the rest of the crowd

him with the knowledge that he was a star
The government has paid over to the
Cherokee nation the (300,000 due for a
tract of land ceded to it by the same,
and substantiated the vote of the
Cherokee council that the money shall be
divided among the Cherokee race aud
their descendants. This leaves the Afri
can Indians of the Cherokee country who
have been on to Washington in delegation,
to try to get a "divy'' in this paymem,
entirely out in the cold.
Thk announcement continues from
Washington that AVatterson's letter was
simply a talk with a private citizen, but
nevertheless shows that Tiiden is a candi
date for 18s t. This is not quite correct.
Jt shows that Mr. Tiiden is in a physical
condition to ran for president. The peo
ple will tako it a good deal easier, and all
you will have to do is to let the people
know that he can be a candidate, and he
can take care of the rest.
Thk places for holding the national
conventions next year are being discussed.
The Republicans incline to Cincinnati,
but hesitate to receive proposals from the
Paris of America owing to the popular
expectation that Ohio will go Democratic
this year. Chicago would like to enter
tain the Democratic convention, but the
strong probability is that the convention
will meet at St. Louis to renominate Mr.
Tiiden. It does not matter much where
the other party holds its convention, or
whether it holds one at all.
Fodb men who claim to be American
citizens were yesterday sentenced in Lon

of the charge of treason and felony. They

probably do so, when the question will have
to be decided as to whether our citizens

they have gone to foreign countries and

otherwise, against governments or per
The very foolish or ignorant counsel for
the men accused of the dynamite con
spiracy in London yesterday, stated it was
notorious that conspiracies were openly
conducted in the United States against the
British government. Lord Coleridge, the
presiding judge, very properly rebuked
the counsel, and compelled him to with-
draw the offensive remark, at the same
time speaking in high terms of the friendly
attitude our government has always main
tained toward that of Great Britain. It is
such hair-brained fellows as this counsel
that keep up an impression among the un
thinking that the two countries are on the
verge of a war.
It's wonderful that in the late revision

yor at ii.ty. vf course.
The expected happened . The star route
jury acquitted the defendants who were
charged by the department of
justice with conspiracy lo de
defraud the goveroment. A review
of Ihe long, weary trial is unnecessary.
The country has watched it ouly to bo sat
isfied that the numerous high-pneed law
yers were not making out a case. The long
suffering jury were on the first ballot nearly
unanimous that no conspiracy was proven,
and their formal verdict was merely the
ratification of the public verdict long ago
• Any other verdict would have beeii a
surprise to the country. For all who
have kept abreast of public affairs for the
last ten or more years are perfectly aware
tUat the dominant party has kept itself in
power by means of contributions, or more
properly, levies drawn from men in of
ficial stations, and oilicials in turn have
made themselves whole. There is no de
partment of the government
that has been free from this
abuse, and no official whose functions are
not merely clerical, that has not partici
pated in deflections of the grade and cla?s
charged in the star route cases. Mr. Dor
sey was not worse than his party associ
ates in the senate during his period df
service in that body, and Gen. Brady was
guilty of nothing that has not been a
regular practice in his party. All the
people inside of politics had long known
that these things were going on, and
political committees were formed to pro
mote the work and to absorb its product .
The celebrated congressional committee
was one of the agencies, and "My Dear
Hubbell'" one of the agents for the ab
sorption of "expedited" accumulations,
and but for this routine of things the
party would have starved to death.
The chief purpose of the trial seems to
have been to take tens of thous
ands, even hundreds of thousands of dol
lars out of the public treasury and squan
der it upon the lawyers. The defendants
stand as well to-day with the country, if
not better, than the government officials
who prosecuted them, and the postoffico
department has sufficient confidence in one
of them to accept his bid and continue
him in the mail service.
Summing up the whole subject, the coun
try does not care to see two or three or
half a dozen men made the scape goats
of a system that involves a multitude of
official persons, when if equal and exact
justice were meted cut there is scarcely any
means of telling where the impeachmants
would end. There is no demand for any
more star route trials. They have proven
far worse than the original sin and move
costly. The remedy is not in suits at law,
but in a purification of the public service,
and this is what the people are reaching as
rapidly as wholesome constitutional pro
visions permit.

London, June 14. — The trial of Dr. Gal
lagher, Bernard Gallagher, Whitehead,
Curtin, Wilson and Ansbargh was contin
ued this morning. The court stated that
it considered the evidence against Bernard
Gallagher and Ansbargh sufficient to be
submitted to the jury . Justice Grove con
curred in the decision but without exprer==
iug an opinion as to the ultimate result.
He thought there were grave doubts as to
the sufficiency of the evidence against
Ausburgh. Clark, of counsel for the de
fense, challenged the crown to point to
a single sylable of evidence given at
the trial outside of that of the
informer Lynch, which showed that the
intention of the prisoners was to assail the
• authority of the crown or to overawe
parliament. He declared Bernard Gal
lagher's statement contained no evidence
against anybody but himself. Whitehead
expressed a desire to address the jury him
self, and his council therefore retreated.
Clark maintained that Lynch's evidence
was not a voluntary confession of an hon
est man who inadvertantly was led into a
plot, but was a calculated revelation, in
creasii gin scope as the necessity of it
grew. Incriminating his friends, to save
himself, was nothing to support his state
ments relative to ' he existence of a club in
America whose object it was to free Ireland
by force. His statem- nts were not credible.
The manner in whic.i they were prepared
rendered them untrustworthy. He particu
larly noticed th it Lynch, since the exam
ination of the prisoner in Bow street court
had unaccountably remembered that the
oath taken in New York contained a refer
ence to the Irish republic. Clarke appealed
to the jury to resist popular prejudice.
His speech was very impressive. White
head, speaking in his own behalf, said that
there was no evidence to show that the
nitro-glycerine found in his factory was
intended for illegal purposes. He declared
that it was for mining purposes, like
thousands of tons of the same article made
in England. The press exaggerated his
case. He exhorted the jury to deal with
it impartially, as they would with any other
case. Ausburgh said he was innocent
as God Almigthy. He stated that he
merely met Dr. Gallagher accidentally on
the steamer Parthia and he again acciden
tally met him in the Strand. Mr. Raw
lands, on behalf of Curtin, declared his
client had been innocently seeking work
and that Dr. Gallagher had given him an
introduction to old friends in Glasgow. If
Gallagher was engaged in a plot it was not
likely that he would recommend a stran
ger to an intimate friend for connection
with it. Curtin's act could only be de
clared guilty on the assumption that a plot
existed, but of this no proof was adduced.
Wilson announced that as far as he was
concerned he left the case where it stood.
Mr. Mathinson, on behalf of Bernard
Gallagher, argued that there was no case
against his client Bernard Gallagher, as he
acted while under the influence of liquor.
There was nothing suspicious in an elder
brother who was better off than a yourjger
one, sending money to the latter. He con
fidently asked for the discharge of the
prisoner. Mr. Mathinson admitted Ber
nard had a general knowledge of the hos
tile designs of the dynamiters, but said it
must be remembered he was a resident of
Brooklyn and could not be judged by the
same standard as an Englishman was. It
was a matter of common knowledge the
plots existed in America for the manufac
ture of dynamite for use against F.ngland
almost with the connivance of the Ameri
can government.
Clarke and Howlands protested against
this language, and declared there was no
proof that such was the case.
Justice Brett declared that counsel had
no right to make such a remark. He said
there was no proof in existence in America
of plots or of connivance thereat on the
part of the government of that country.
Justice Coleridge also rebuked Mathin
son. He said: 'I think it only due to our
friendly relations to the great government
that you unreservedly withdraw your state
ment."' Mathinson said he would gladly
accede to the ruling of the court.
Mary Gallagher testified that she lived
in Brooklyn with her brother,Dr.Gallagher.
She had never seen Lynch or heard that
her brother was connected with the Emer
ald club. Her] brother spent his evenings
at horce. Bernard Gallagher, she-said, was
a drunkard and had given his family
much trouble. She believed that he had
softening of the brain. The case for the
defense was then closed.
The lord chief jnstice said the crime
with which the prisoners were charged,
was one of the gravest and heaviest possi
ble. He would not describe the calamities
which the explosives might have caused
as he desired both the jury and himself
should consider the facts of the case with
judicial calmness. Society could not
exist, u he said," if the offense charged
against the prisoners was not within the
grasp of law. When it was proved, there
should not be the slightest faltering on the
part of either judges or juries, it was
sufficient for the jury to convict the pris
oners, if they thought one or more of them
had meditated violence against
public property or the lives of the queen's
subjects for the purpose of overawing
the government. The case against Dr.
Thomas Gallagher, Whitehead and Wilson,
was much stronger than against the oth
ers." The lord chief justice said: "Al
though not required by the letter of the
law it was advisable that the evidence of
the approver should be corroborated. A
large amount of American money was
fovnd on Dr. Gallagher when arrested.
That fact tended to confirm the statement
that Lynch Gallagher was one of the chief
organizers in America and London of the
conspiracy. Although Dr. Gallagher's
sister had been called as a witness, there
had been no attempt to prove that the
money had been earned in the ordinary
coarse of business. Lynch's evidence had
been confirmed in several other
important points, and he believed
it was generally trustworthy. He de
clared the assertion that the nitro glycer
ine was intended for a legitimate purpose
was incredible,' when one considered the
reckless manner in which a quantity suf
ficient to blow up half of London, had
been iolted about in cabs. No '.egitimate
trader would have resorted to such
means of conveyance." Judge Coleridge,
in conclusion, said "'it was important that
society should be protected, and on the
other hand that aliens should not be con
victed of crime, however, unless on the
clearest evidence."
The jury retired at 5:35. After a short
time they returned to the court room, and
announced that they had found a verdict
of guilty against Dr. Gallagher, Wilson,
Whithead and Curtin. and a verdict of not
guilty in the oase of Ansburgh and Ber
nard Gallagher. The four men found
guilty were then sentenced to penal servi
tude for life.
Justice Coleridge said the case against

London, June 14.— Lord Carlingford,
minister of agriculture, received an influ
ential deputation representing towns in
England claiming ten millions of people,
the object of which was to protest against
the restrictions of food supply. Carling
ford stated the decrease in the importation
of American cattle was due to the fact that
better prices were obtained in America,
and not to the system of compulsory
slaughter at British ports. lie said the
government would continue to act up to
the spirit of the present laws, and not
strain them in the direction of further pro
hibition, as urged by the opponents to
the importation of American cattle.
Dublin, June 14. — It is believed the po
lice are cognizant of the fact that a society
has recently been formed here for remov

stated that the houses in which the society
held meetings have been closely watched,
and that a raid was made recently on a
house where a supposed meeting was being
held, but no arrests were effected. Jas.

Berlin, June 14.— The committee of the
lower house of the landtag, sitting during
the recess, adopted the first three clauses
of the church bill. The third clause to
amend and to transfer the right of raising
objections to church appointments from
control of the government to governors of
provinces. Clause four, giving power to
the government to reject nominees on
civil, religious or educational grounds, was
rejected. It i^ thought probable the
clause will be allowed to drop.

Washington*, June 14. — The latest bulle
tin from Gramercy park, issued through
the medium of a Kentucky editor, is ac
cepted here by politicians to indicate that
Tilded is undoubtedly a candidate for the
presidential nomination in 1884 The
great drawback which has been in his way
was the report generally ;belived, that his
physical condition was such that he ought
to be thinking more of golden slippers
and angel's wings than things mundane.
Now that it is avouched that the old man
is in the bloom of virtuous and vigorous
health, and has jaded the erratic editorial
visitor in a visit to the pigs and other
farm attachments, the natural inference is
he is stout enough to stand the racket of a
presidential canvass, and despite the edi
tor's assertion to the contrary, he doubt
less means to do it. It is noticeable, after
the sketch of Tilden skipping up and down
stairs with a vigor that laid out the disci
ple of "Tariff for reform only," the asser
tion is made that "No power on earth could
induce him to accept the presidency." It
is likewise strikingly noticeable that the
editor is scrupulously careful to disasso
ciate Tilden with the declaration, and
makes it solely on his own behalf.
A leading Philadelphia newspaper pub
lishes to-day simultaneously with this ar
ticle a correspondence going to show
that Tiiden was opposed to
the electoral commission and
that had his counsel been followed the
controversy of 1876-77 would have ter
minated differently. This correspon
dence purports to emanate from a source
well qualified to speak of the Democratic
secrets of that memorable fight, and it
derives additional importance from the
fact that it comes from Indiana. It is in
tended, apparently, to overcome another
serious Democratic objection to Tiiden,
viz: That his vacillation and timidity
lost the presidency in 1877. Never before
has such a direct attempt been made to
relieve Tiiden of the weight of responsibil
ity for that result. It begins to look as if
Tiiden and Hendricks were engineering a
definite plan for the renomination of the
"old ticket !

The convention then proceeded to the
election of delegates to tho national con

August. Revs. James McGolruth, John
Shanley, J. Mnrphy and Messrs. J. H.
Nightingale and T. M. Bohan were nomi

the other contestants withdrawing their
election was made unanimous.
The election of state president was the
next business in order, Mr. L. i\l. Bohan.of
Minneapolis, the present incumbent, and
Mr. Albert Scheller, of Hastings, being the
candidates. The most spirited debate of
the convention took place over this elec
tion, the claims of Mr. Bohan being elo
quently presented by Mr. C. B. Shanley. of
St. Paul, who made a stirring speech which
was continually interrupted by long and
loud applause. Mr. Scheller's suit was also
very ably sustained, and an informal
vote stood Schell-er seventy-nine, Bohan
forty six. A subsequent vote by delega
tions elected Scheller by ninety-four votes
to forty-six for his opponent, and his elec
tion was made unanimous. Rev. P. Dercky
nominated J. McGrath, of Minneapolis, as
first vice president and he was unanimous
ly elected, as was also Mr. Wm. Dowlan, of
St. Paul, for second vice president. Mr. J.

and Mr. Dennis Doyle, Doyle P. 0., treas
The county presidents were then nomi

The secretary and treasurer read their
reports for the past year showing fifty
seven societies on the roll and the finances
in a good condition. The committee on
amendments to the constitution made its
report recommending several changes,
notably one that the president and spirit

each society may elect one delegate for
each twenty-five members or fraction
thereof. Several other committees then
reported, that on "The address to young

To the Catholic young men of this North
Star state :
At this, our twelfth annual convention,
it is proper that we say a few words to our
young men.
A young man just starting in life may
be likened to a ship that has never tried
the waves and storms, as it first leaves the
When a ship leaves the port for the first
time the trials and hardships that it will be
called upon io encounter are unknown to
s commanders. If, after the ship has
beftn in the water for some time, some ac
cident should occur, it only serves to make
the builders more careful about their work
in the future. So it is with young men
who are just starting in life. Our futures
are unknown to us. Everything
may go on smoothly for a while, but there
are pending difficulties, bnt unseen by us,
from the time that we first leave the cra
dle till we are called from the scene of ac
tion, th6re will be adverse winds to battle
against. Take the little child, for instance,
and if you watch him closely day by day
you will observe that his tumbles are nu
merous and to him they are just as great
as are the trials of older persons. Follow
that child up and you will see that them
are numerous difficulties which he has to
encounter before he reaches a desired ob
ject. When a young man leaves home and
friends and the influence of parents and
superiors, then indeed, if ever, adversity
will present itself in its numerous phases.
He will wave difficulties to encounter
which, though they may seem trivial to
older persors, will call for no small
amount of pei severing and self-reliant ac
tion; and thus by making perseverance
necessary, he will discipline
his mind and muscles to overcome other
and greater troubles.
Now young friends your pathways may
not all turn to what you wish them to be,
bnt if you remain true to the teachings of
our total abstinence union, your paths
will »urc be strewn with roses. Young
men it is not enough that you come here
and listen to the deliberations of our older
and better tried members, but you must
work yourselves, and let the people in your
respective communities see what you are
doing. Remember that sounds which ad
dress the ear are lost and die in one short
hour, but that which strikes the eye lives
long upon the mind, the grateful sight en
graves the blessing with abeam of life.

After some discussion, in which the rela
tive merits of Stillwater and Minneapolis
as places for holding the next convention
were set forth, a vote was taken and Min
neapolis was chosed by sixty votes to Still
water's twenty-six.
The convention then passed various
complimentary resolutions thanking the
retiring officers and the Faribault com
mittee of arrangements for their efficiency
and zeal aud adjourned sine die.
The following is the annual address of
President Bohan:
Rev. Fathers and Gentlemen of the Con
vention: Another year has come and gone.
Another link of time has been added to
the pant history of our union, and in obe
dience to the call for the twelfth annual
convention, we have again assembled to
review the work done daring the past year
and to adopt ways and means for further
action in the promotion of the ennobling
principles of total abstinence. The re
ports that my brother officers will present
to you will show that amid the stormy sea
of intemperance that is surging all
around us, the bark of our union
sails safely on, seeking to save
from the wrecks that intemperance has
and is making men, who were created
for a nobler purpose than to become the
slaves of that which is left on the human
race through all times a scar which has
been hard to heal . At no time since the
birth of our union h»vc the propagators
of intemperance shown such hostility to
the growth of total abstinence as now. We
find them banding together, backed by the
money they have received from those who
fill oar jails, our state prisons, our alms
houses, our lunatic and imbecile asylums;
money that, had it been allowed to operate
in the development of some honorable en
terprise, would have aided in making pros
perous and happy communities that now
are of no use to their country or them
selves. In view of the opposition of
the enemies of our cause, you are called
upon to legislate wisely and effectively to
extend the usefulness of this organization
into fields that have not yet been culti
vated. No doubt there are obstructions
to be met on the- road to success, but our
uniou has triumphed over them in the
pa.-i, and with the aid of holy mother
church its triumphs will continue. The
enthusiasm that has been awakened by the
total abstinence movement should con
tinually animate it? members, or their
efforts will slacken. It is evident that all
- human are but transient, hence tho
necessity of active work and the obliga
tions under which we rest as members of
this onion to keep constantly adding fuel
to tho decaying fires.
I would suggest to you to ndopt and put
in operation some method by which local
societies can procure th"c services of
speakers. And in my opinion a fie subject
for your consideration would bu to form a
corps of writers for t!io pre?s who could
keep constantly before the public gazo
matters pertaining to tho total abstinence
movement. As the press is one of the
battle grounds upon which tho <[iiestious
that agitate the minds of the people are
fought. Wo should be in the front of that
battle ground with the facts and lignres of
our cause. Every means that, in not in op
position to our principles as Catholic total
abstainer.-, we should adopt to stay the
progress of intemperance. Wo .should
declare to those outside our ranks that we
are united in this work, not for the vain
purpose of any individual honor or emol
ument, but with the object of saving our fel
lowmen from a life of bondage and use
lessne.ss while here upon earth and an
eternity of misery and woe beyond the
grave. We onrselves should be sensible
of the fact that we are engaged in a work
that redounds to ths honor of God, to the
respect and profit of our faith and to a
prosperous development of our country.
With these brief remarks I will conclude
by asking that you shall conduct your de
liberations with a spirit of brotherly love
for one another, and one object in your
mind, the success of the total abstinence
The Forthcoming Gathering of American
Archbishops at Rome— What Archbishop
Heiss Knows of its Purposes— The Recent
Papal Circular ou the Irish Troubles.
[Special Telegram to the Globe. ]
Milwaukee, June 14. — Archbishop Heiss
has received from the secretary of the prop
aganda hi Rome letters notifying him of
ths desire of the holy father that he should
attend a conference of prelates to be held
in that city in November to take under
; consideration a number of important
questions connected with the government
of the Catholic church in the United
States. To a reporter who called at the
' Archiepiscopal residence to-day, his grace
said he did not know who else besides him
self had baen called to Rome on this mis
sion. The matters which will be discussed in
conference include the government and
education of Catholic clergy, the instruc
[ tion of Catholic youth, the administration
of church property and the building and
directing of churches and other ecclesias
. tical institutions. Besides these matters
many others will come up for discussion
during the conference, souie of which
probably will be suggested during the
, course of the proceedings. At the conclu
sion of the conference its decisions will be
i communicated to the various bishops of
, the United States, and will be made the
, basis of action to be taken by the latter at a
. plenary council composed of all of them,
. which will be held in the United States
as soon after the conference as
possible. The gathering at Rome
will be merely preliminary. It will frame
no law, but only prepare matter for the
plenary council.
Speaking of the plan thus outlined by
which the pope desires to further tha sys
tematization of the ecclesiastic establish
ments of the United States, his grace the
archbishop said: "It is wise, I think, as
it will enable the propaganda to learn
directly from the bishops what is needed
in the country, while at the same time it
will instruct the bishops in regard to what
is acceptable to the holy see." In response
to questions regarding the probable
policy of the conference, his grace went
on, -'Very likely the conference will
connsel the contraction of fewer
debts in the erection of churches and chari
table institutions. It will perhaps urge
the desirability of more uniformity in the
education of the priesthood. We have at
present a large number of seminaries in
the United States, and there is very little
connection between them. As to the mat
ter of the instruction of Catholic youth,
there may be something dono looking tow
ard making provision for higher education,
but about that Ido not know. There is
no likelihood, I think, that the conference
will directly oppose American public
schools, but tho church does not consider
them sufficient for Catho
lic children oa account
of their future to make provision for re
ligious training. 1 myself believe public
schools are very good for disseminating
worldly knowledge. I have never spoken
directly against them,but I have had occa
sion to speak in favor of Catholic school?,
and thus could not avoid making an indi
rect arraignment of public schools in the
respect in which they are deficient."
The archbishop was asked what he
thought of the recent circular of the pope
with reference to political troubles.
He said: "It appears to me that the pur
port of the circular has been misunder
stood. Its intention, as I understand it,
is to keep the clergy from
being concerned in political agitation.
Rome warned them not to mix
up in the Irish agitation, beaaase there
have been great crimes connected with it.
The prohibition had reference to the
priests only. It did not refer to the peo
ple—that is, as I understand it. If there
were a similar agitation here I would have
a right to admonish my priests to keep
out of it. The Pope has the samejright in
the present case. Of course his action is
a remote condemnation of agitation, but
the condemnation is directed not at the
political principles which are contended
for, but at the faot that things are not go
ing on in the right way.' | Ih9 archbishop
will leave Milwaukee . some time early in
October. The length of time which he
will remain away will depend largely on
the length of the conference, and the lat
ter is indefinite.
Concerning Imported Clears.
Competent judges upon all eidos declare the
Seal Skin Cigar to be equal if not superior to
the best imported cigars .
Warranted free from scent or flaTor produced

An eleven- year-old boy named Jefferson
was attempting to catch on a passing
freight train near the Pleasant Grove
school last evening and fell beneath the

amputation was necessary near the knee .
He will probably recover.
Denies the Rumor.
Chicago, June 14. — In an interview to- '
day with Alexander Sullivan, president of
the Irish national league of America, he
said there was no truth in the report that
the body proposed to espouse the cause of s
a protective tariff in American politics, t
He asserted it would take no stand as to \
protection or free trade in this country as >
a body and would permit none of its lead- j
ers to use it that way. Its policy was no
trade with England and protection for Ire
land. He denied he had ever been in any i
way connected with the skirmishing fund, i
