The fact, however, is not attracting national atten tion. - The Republican waters in this neigh borhood need inspection to ascertain if something in the nature of oil is not needed. Now the Republican papers can say, w lea they think the matter well over, that "horsey and forty-four others are swim ming the Hellspont." Flowers are sent daily by express from the White hour c conservatory to Miss Beck with in New York, whom the president met at Newport last summer. Things look a little uncomfortable for the French "jedge" whom the communists think stretched Louise Michel's sentence a trifle more than her offense called for. Wisdom "10" is looked for to-morrow, but the Dispatch says he cannot be the pres'dsnt of the 6tate convention. Why not grant poor William a little thing like that . Senator Allison, of lowa, says the Re pablicans must carry Ohio this year to have any prospect whatever in the presi dential year of 18S4. If this is the situa tion the "jig is up." A gi:kat many hearts will ache in conse quenca of the abolition of forty-five inter nal revenue districts announced this morn ing. This will necessitate a large reduc tion of the revenue force and a correspond ing reduction of the assessments that can be levied next year by the Jay Hubbell blackmailing committee. Will the Republican state convention, of Minnesota have the honesty and the coarage to adopt a tariff resolution like the following: We favor a tariff for revenue lfclited to the necessities of a government economically admin istered, and so adjusted in its application as to prevent unequal burdens, encourage productive iiil' .-. Us at home uml djfuril j ust compensation to labor, out nut to create or foster monopolies. (>f the nomination made by the Ohio Democrats, the Philadelphia Times says: With the exception of Mr. Thurmau, who made a hopeless canvass during the war, .Mr. Hoadly is the ablest man who has been nominated for governor of Ohio since Salmon P. Chase and Heury B. Payne were arrayed against each other in the notable campaign of 1857. That a Repub lican paper should so speak is significant. In the new arrangement of revenue dis tricts Dr. A. C. Wedge is left out in the cold — as cold as a wedge. He got the of fice of collector of the Owatonna district as a tribute of his fealty to Windom when he was last chosen to the senate. He has survived his patron but a few short months and will take his place in the long proces sion of those who have pinned their faith too implicitly to the coat tails of the oily statesman from Winona. The political fight in lowa this year is concentrated upon the supreme judge ship. Judge Day is the Republican can didate, and the Prohibitionists are bent upon his defeat for the reason that he declared the Prohibition amendment un constitutional. Day may be defeated, and the Prohibitionists have their revenge on him, but they will gain nothing more, as the candidate who will be elected, if Day is not, will not be Prohibition Clay to decide constitutional questions without regard to his oath or his judgment of law. Tin: Republican majority in the Massa chusetts legislature by openly blocking the wheels of G>v. Butler's "drag-net" measure providing for an investigation of the several branches ©f the state govern ment for '"malfeasance" therein, are just laying the rail for his running into that office for a second term instead of knock ing out his props. The people of that state are bound now, that the lid has been pried open a little and the Tewksbnry crime has been made public, to see what else there is of corruption and shame hid den under ring Republican party lock and key. Mb. Holman, of Indiana, has been many years in congress, and seems to be endowed with the gift of discovering propositions having "jobs" in them. In this capacity he has acquired the sobriquet of "Object or" Holman, as his "I object" has filled much space in the Congressional Record . No man ever stayed long in congress with out an uneasy feeling growing up that he is keeping other men back, and this is what is disturbing the political courses in the district. 'Mr. Holman, however, is too strong with people to be set aside for the ambitions of any other man, so it is proposed to nominate him governor to get him out of the way. Mr. Holman's place evidently is In congress, as the people of his district have long thought, and to the project to run him for the executive, he says emphatically, "I object." TROUBLE AHEAD IN THE REPUB LICAN CAMP. The Republican state convention meets in this city to-morrow, and the clans have already begun to assemble. Though on the surface all appears serene, and there seems to be no doubt of the re-nomination of Governor Hubbard and his present associ ates, there is an undercurrent at work that threatens an eruction of no mean propor- < tions. I The assembling together of such men as 1 ex-Governor Pillsbury, General Washburn ' Tommy Simpson. Windom. and others i prominent among the barnacles who have ( for so many years fastened themselves 1 upon the offices of the state, portends no < good to the slate arranged by the f younger breed of officials, and has s a significance deeper than appears ( at fi r st blush. The old gang do \ not relish their involuntary retirement 1 from the control of affairs, and are, like < Micawber. waiting for something to turn j up whereby they may retrieve their past 1 losses and again be able to partake of the 1 sweets of office. They are all woiking in . harmony, and if the opportunity offers, 1 will throw a bomb in 10-niorrow's conven- ] tion that will be a veritable surprise to ] ' ; the boys" who have been so confident of j having the game in their own hands. The programme, as the Glojje is in- : formed, is about as follows: Many of the delegations have been instructed for Hub bard and the balance These the old - guard will leave alone. Many other dele gations are not instructed, but tacitly sup posed to be in favor of the old ticket. These will be attacked in detail as they ar rive, and plied with all the arts which the shrewd manipulators are capable of using. If a reasonable degree of succe&s is met with, a count of noses will be had before the convention opens, and if 'there is any chance of success a bold stroke will be made— a move that will either make or break the old guard. It will be the first move to nominate either ex-Governor Pillsbury or ex-Senator Windom for president of the convention. Then a dicker will be under taken between tho friends of Gilman and Rice, candidates for lieutenant governor 5 on the one hand and the friends of Gen eral Washburn for .governor on the other hand. It is a matter of supreme indiffer ence to General Washburn and his friends whether Rice or Gilman succeeds in carry ing off the second place on the ticket, so long as Governor Hubbard is defeated and Washburn or Hon. C. D. Gilfillan, of this city, nominated in his stead; for be it known that the gallant general of saw logs has a great itching to fill the seat in the senate now occupied by McMillan, and would regard the governorship as a long step in that direction. He will therefore make an earnest effort to obtain the covet ed prize, either for himself or for Mr Gil fillan, in either. This is only a contingent demonstra tion. If it shall be demonstrated after a . count of noses that the old guard stands no show in the fight, there will be no op position to the re-nomination of Gov. Hubbard or any of his present associates save Lieut. Gov. Gilman. As the Scan dinavians cast three-fourths of the Repub lican votes of the state, they think them selves entitled to more than one out of the half dozen officers to be voted for, and have therefore determined to place Sena tor Rice upon the ticket for lieutenant governor in place of Gilman. Their de mand is certainly a fair one, for it is only a matter of equity that those who cast the votes should divide the spoib between them. REPUBLICAN HUMBUGGING. Senator Allison, of lowa, is a Republi can statesman and a very interesting gen tleman. He is prominent in his party, has long been in public life, arid his name has been connected with the Republican nomination for president. Just at this time it appears everybody is talking about Ohio, and naturally Mr. Allison talks about it. Speaking of the Democratic nomination there he says lie knows Judge Hoadly personally, and he esteems him a very smart man. The senator said that while he did not profess to know much about Ohio politics, this thing he did know, "that we | the Republicans] have got to carry the state this year if we wish to go into Presidential election with good prospects." "We onnnot afford to lose the state at this time," he pensively continued, "on account of the moral effect of it." Having thus expressed himself, and revealed the fact that he looks upon the prospect in Ohio with alarm, so far as Republican success is concerned, he used the following language concerning the platform of the Ohio Democrats: '"I'lie platform lias amused me very much. 1 have been trying to decipher the tariff plank and have come to the conclusion that it means nothing in particular and was framed to suit everybody. You can const rue it any wav you wish. It indicates very clearly to my mind tliiit the Democratic party will dodge that isue next year, and that the national cumi>;ii<;:i of 1884 will not be fought on the tariff question. 1 say this because 1 Bee the Democratic press of the country, even Wutterson's organ, indorses the platform, ;is one upon which the party can stand. Hence a duplicate will no doubt be re produced next year for the national party to stand upon." It is more or less painful to observe that the truly good senator from the state of Hatton has the habit of mind possessed by many gentlemen who hold the rank of Bepublican leaders, and is prone to charge upon his political opponents with supercfiial criticism that willj not bear analysis. The Democratic platform he re gards as a "dodge" especially framed to suit everybody, and it amuses him. The "funny" Democratic tariff plank is as follows : 2. We favor a tariff for revenue, limited to the necessity of Government economically ad ministered, and so adjusted in its application as to prevent unequal burdens, encourage produc tive industries at home, afford just compensa tion to labor, but not to create or foster monopolies. It may be assumed that that is good doctrine and ought to suit everybody. The Ohio Republicans have had a convention and made a platform, whereof the tariff plank reads: 2. That the Bepublican party believes now as in the past in the maintenance of a tariff syp tem which will provide a revenue for the gov ernment and at the same time will protect American producers and American labor. Probably it dii not occur to Mr. Allison that his Republioan friends in Ohio are as largely engaged in "dodging" as their Democratic neighbors. It must occur to the most casual observer that there is a striking similarity in the two platforms, and whatever comment the one provokes applies equally to the other. The Repub licans "believe now, as in the past, in the maintenance of a tariff pystem which will provide a revenue for the government and at the same time will protect American pro ducers and American labor." The Democrats "favor a tariff for revenue, limited to the necessities of the government economi cally administered, and so adjusted in its application as to prevent unequal burdens, encourage productive interests at home, and afford just compensation to labor" Where's the difference? "A tariff system which will provide a revenue for the gov ernment," is identical with "a tariff limited to the necessities of government economi THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, TUESDAY MORNING, JUKE 26, 1883. sally administered/ What does Mr. Ulison mean by charging that .he Democratic platfom is a 'doJge," and by inference asserting that -he Republican expression is the proper loctrine. The Democrats declare for a ;ariff which shall encourage productive en ;erprises at home and afford just compen sation to labor. The Republicans pre scribe '"a tariff which will protect Ameri jan producers and American labor."' iVfcere, again, is the difference? Who sees :he "dodge?" One is honest, the other de ceptive, according to Mr. Allison. But Is that gentleman possessed of sound mind md memory, when upon such premises he mdertakes to prejudice the public mind, Mr. Allison is one of the iblest men in the Republican party and a zealous advocate of Republican dogmas. What sincerity is there in such party men? None at all. Iheir partisanism blinds them to all things ;ave one, and that is. auy thing for success. For a long time very many of the men who cast the votes and never hold the oliices, were misled by these pretentious persons, but latterly they see them in their true colors, and understand with what shams and hollowness and selfishness they are impregnated. No wonder that the sentiment of distrust is all powerful. No wonder that the people have decreed that these humbugs shall pass from all places of power. X Xl<! II T.i TE3IVL- 1 A" T.S.

The Old Ant horMilll>estroye«l at an Early Hour Vi's'erelay iHorning. An alarm of lire was turned on from box 38 at 7 :'6S o'clock yesterday morning, which proved to be the old anchor mill, situated on the corner of Grove and Seventh streets. The building was owned by Close Bros., of Le Mar?, lowa, and was occupied by the Bohn Manufacturing company. 3f Winona, and in which was stored a large stock of sash, doors and blinds. The building had been closed for two months, although the machinery was in perfect order, as the Bohn company had been contem plating starting it np again. There had been no fire in the mill since it was closed. The mill was a two-^tory frame, 100x110 feet, and the ground on which it stood has been wanted by the Northern Pacific Railroad company, to secure which condemnation proceedings in court had been commenced. The com missioners had valued the property at $8,000. The fire started in the basement, forty feet from the engine, in the glazing room, and is believed to have been the work of an incendiary . The mill was valued at $G,OOO, insured for $4,000. Machinery, §8,000, insured for $7,000. Stock $13,000. insured for $3,500, The policies of insurance on the mill and machinery were held by Wood & Law rence, of this city, as follows : Amazon, N. V f 1,000 Norther*, N.

The two commisioners who superintend their single-number drawings, when interviewed oa the subject, reluctantly admitted that the num bers which were placed in the tubes and put in the wheel where only counted twice a yeak . They draw the lottery every month. Is not this a bara- faced fraud? Their excuse is that it would take ten days' labor, with four assistants. How, then, can any ticket-buyer in this lottery know that the number on his tickets has a correspon - ing number in the wheel? If they desire an hoaest drawing, why do they not, on the day of and just before their drawings, allow the ticket holder the privilege of calling ont his number and see'that it ie placed in| the wheel bo he thn can have some chance of its being drawn ont with a prize from the other wheel? Other lotteries have done so . Under their system why don't they make their capital $1000,000: They might as well. Is not the published list of winners in their lottery also a fraud? It is very ca?y for a few dollars to get persons win are willing to let them use their names as the hold ers of a big prize. Is it any longer a wonder how they controlled the Louisiana Constitutional Convention, courts and legislatures and a for mer postoffice administration ? Under this sys tem of drawings, it will be no trouble to make money enough to control and run our very government. — From the Chicago Inter-Ocean.

That the salary of the attor ney be fixed at three hundred dollars for the school year. • That ,the salary of the auditor be fixed at three hundred dollars for the school year. That the salary of the secretary be established at five hundred dollars for the current school year. THE HIGH SCHOOL. Inspector Gilbert, chairman of the oom mitte on high school, then submitted the following report of appointments, with salaries attached: BALABY. For teacher of Latin and Greek, F. . W. Fisk $1,300 For teacher of English Literature, Mrs. H. W. Haynes 1,100 For teacher of Mathematics, Miss L. A. Vanderwaker 900 For teacher of Mathematics, Miss M. J.

Farrar 900 For teacher of French, Mr F C Carel The position of principal has already been filled by the board in the appoint ment of Prof. C. B. Gilbert, at a salary of $2,000. We have made no appointment of teacher of science, and respectfully ask for more time. We recommend that the salary of the teacher of science be fixed at not exceeding $1,500. Respectfully submitted, L. A. Gilbert, Chairman. Resolved, That the committee on schools recommend that the prefessor of mucic be instructed to limit instruction in music to simple rudimentary instruction, with a view to make both instruction and prac tice, a recreation, rather than a study as a science. That proficiency in music shall net affect the grade or standing of any pupils, nor shall it be subject of any ex amination, save an except so far as it may be desired by any pupil in the high school to study it as a science. That the profes sor in music shall devote his whole time, during the school session*, to such class and choral instruction, not exceeding fif teen minutes per day for each room, in the grades wheraimusic has been heretofore a study, and during such exercises the pro fessor shall have the strict attention of such class . That the committee on rules be request ed to confer with the committee on music and report any changes that may be nec essary in standing rules, by reason of this recommendation, and that the professor in music be nominated, subject to these instructions, and changes in the depart ment of music. That the subject of study be omitted from the examinations of the current school year in all our schools. Adopted. IN THE DARK. The committee on German, at the re quest of Inspector Benz, were given fur ther time to report, and upon the motion of the same gentieman, the board voted into executive, or, rather, secret session, to consider the recommendations made for appointment by the committee. PERSONAL EXPLANATION . Before declaring the vote excluding outsiders, in which was included the re porters, President ( >ppenheim rose to a personal explanation. Referring to a re port of his remarks Saturday morning last, in which he was made to compare tho German citizens with the prostitutes of the city, he pronounced the report a lie, and further, that the party making the report knew he lied when he so reported him. His position as to teaching foreign lan guages in the public • schools was well known. He did not believe it was author ized by the laws, was contrary to the true intent of the public school system, and he should therefore oppose the teach ing of that or any foreign lan guage, so long as he was a member of the board. TKAUfING SCHOOLS. The secret session concluded, in which the board raported unanimously to con firm the recommendation of the commit tee on schools for appointments, etc., In spector Hamilton submitted a report providing for a training school: The recommendation created some discussion, but was finally adopted with Inspector Gilbert as the only negative vote. MISCELLANEOUS.. By resolution of Inspector Hamilton it was voted that the repair of school build ing, under existing circumstances, be com pleted by September 1, or that penalties as specified in the specifications apply. Sapt. Wright was given leave of absence for six weeks. The committee on property was author ized to dispose of extras in the present high school building. STILLWATER GLOUULES. Baraum's circus is coming in October Bills to that effect were posted yesterday. Six children in a family residing on the South Hill, are ill with diphtheria. Thej are, however, reported as convalescing. The aDnual election of officers whicl was to have been held by the Crusaders on last Sunday afternoon, has been postponec for two weeks. The three-year-old son of Frank Reed had a piece bitten out of his hand by a dog on Sunday last. The brute was killed by the owner. The strawberry crop, it is stated, was greatly injured by the late frost. Conse quently the crop will not be much over half of what it has been for the past two years. Mr. Frank Raighter, who has been laid up for the last two weeks with a badly sprained ankle, was on the street yester day f.or \':q first time smc3 the accident occurred. Three prisoners from Polk county ware brought to the penitentiary yesterday: Jeremiah Kelly, two years; John Ferguson, one year; Chas. Liby, nine months. All consisted of the crime of larceny. The Crusaders have signified their in tention of forming a part of the proces sion on the Fourth of July, should their new uniforms, which have been ordered, arrive in time. The society will turn out on that day with fifty men rank and file, which will bo no bad showiDg. considering the number continually absent from the city. At present there are 301 persons behind the prison bars, which is eleven more than has ever been confined there at one time since the opening of the institution. Were it not that some are sick in the hospital the officials wculd have been compelled to place two prisoners in one cell, which the warden is loth to do as long as there is a possibility of avoiding such a course. A fight iook place Saturday night last among a party of Italians who had congre gated at the house of a friend for the pur pose of having a good time all to them selves. One of the crowd is reported to have been badly used. The police were informed of the row, but before any of the force could reach the scene of action the combatants had separated for the night. Two young chaps, strangers in the city, were found bathing in Lily lake on Sunday afternoon . When arraigned in the police court yesterday morning the young men informed Judge Lee that they had been in the city but a short time, and were entirely unacquainted with the ordinances govern ing such matter.-. Sentence was suspended. The young man caught shooting in the vi cinity of McKusick's lake, on Sunday, was called on for $7.50, which he handed over, disgusted with the whole business. The chap who came here on Saturday for the purpose of making a strike and was hustled over to Wisconsin, had the im pudence to show up again on Sunday. However, he was not in town long before he was looked up . In looking over his cash accounts at the city hall he was found in possession of no inconsiderable number of dimes and half dimes. This chap is a suspicious character, to say the least of him. To rid the city of his presence he was escorted to the lower depot and put on board the cars by a couple of police men. Testing Virtues.

A Gala Day at Lakes Elmo and "White Boar— Picnics. Games, Hoatiiier, Racing and Orating Fill Up the Fleeing; Hours- A Most .Delightful Day Passed in the Sylvan Shades. ■ . The celebration of St. John the Bap tists day yesterday by the French Catho lic society of St. Paul was an interesting ev^nt to all members of that society and their friends. St. John's day occurring on Sunday, the programme of festivities was postponed until Monday. At an early hour, therefore, on yester morn, the mem bers of L'Union Francaise, numbering over 200, resplendent in regalia of gold and purple velvet, and badges appropri ately inscribed, assembled at the St. Louis French Parish church on Wabashaw street. They were accompanied by a platoon of police, in command of Chief Clark, and Stein's band of the First regiment. The church within, outside, and at the entrance of the gate, were elaborately decorated with ever greens and banners. Bishop Ireland con ducted pontifical mass, assisted by Rev; Fathers Lapulus and Caillet. At the conclusion of the ceremonies a procession was formed, and headed by the police and band, inarched to the depot and boarded the excursion train for White Bear and Lake Elmo. The coaches pro vided were found to be insufficient to ac commodate the number of excursionists, and some delay ensued before additional were obtained. Finally the train started, freighted with a thousand happy souls, HEADED FOB LAKE ELMO. On arrrival at the depot there the com pany marched in procession to the beau tiful grounds about the lake, where a few brief ceremonies were disposed of, such as speaking and music. The president of the society, F. X. Gravel, as master of ceremonies, made a few remarks appropriate to the occasion. Rev. Mr. Nongaret, of New Canada, made a very pleasing address, and closed by urging upon the society the necessity of having a central place of meet ng on the Fourth of July, and suggested Little Canada, that being a central point, around which were gathered many of the societies. He was followed by Mr. D. Mich^ud, vice president of L'Union Francaise. Mr. Savard, officer of the day, J. B. Sirois, and T. O. Dufresne, president of the coun ty organization, all of whom endorsed Mr. Nougaret's suggestion as to the central place of meeting on the Fourth . u/JThe day was spent in various ways, some indulging in dancing in the pavilion and in the parlor of the spacious hotel, others in boat riding on the beautiful lake, and still others in different games, in which was found much pleasure. The excursionists returned to the city at i): 45 p. m., and marched to the place of meeting, disbanded, all well pleased and abundantly satisfied with the day's en joyments. AT WHITE BEAK. The day, had it been made to order, could not have been more satisfactory. The sun was bright, the air was balmy, the trees were dressed in their deepest foliage of green, and heaven and earth united to j smile upon the occasion and render it a joyous one. At 8:40 in the morning L'linion St. Jean Baptiste society, headed by the Great Western band, marched down Third street, 250 strong, to the union de pot, where they met many of their country men, who aided in swelling their ranks. All took seats in the cars, a happy, joyous crowd. In a brief space of time the beau tiful White Bear lake, where they were to spend the day, was reached, and the exu berant French people, boiling over with fun and frolic, left the cars for the picnic grounds, near Leip's house, where they were met by delegations from various places. All the French population at White Bear joined their countrymen, and from Centreville came fifty-five wagon loads of people, to swell the ranks. A large delegation f rona Soule also appeared, and from Stillwater and Somerset, Wis., large numbers came, with a sprinkling from Mendota and Minneapolis. It was a grand gathering of French people upon a pleasant social occasion. There could not have been less than from 1.500 to 2,000 people who had gathered upon the shores of the beau tiful lake to celebrate the occasion. The day seems to have been divided up very judiciously. The morning was devctsd to boat races, running matches, potato races, etc., etc.. interspersed by a great number of American and French airs rendered in splendid style by the Great Western band, and specially prepared for this particular occasion. At noon a grand dinner was served at Leip's hotel, but some who had prepared for the occasion had family pic nics of their own on the 'awn and under the trees. All around it was a free and easy, enjoyable occasion. After dinner all gathered on the lawn and a short time was devoted to speech making. This lasted till about 3 o'clock. The principal speakers were J. B. A. Para dis and A. Richard, of St. Paul; Dr. (). A. Wattiere, of Stillwater; A. Cardinal, of Centerville, and others. After the speak ing dancing was resumed, the same being interspersed with boat riding, croquet, etc., etc , and so the day continued till near 7 o'clock, when they returned to St. Paul. Previous to embarking on the cars the cen tral committee was organized from all the towns named above, for the purpose of ar ranging for the celebrating of the 24th of June, 1884, at the same time. It was a grand occasion, and the fact that so many of our French citizens can gather together and enjoy themselves all day in such an or derly and decorous manner, without the least quarreling or ill feeling, speaks vol umes for the excellent character and great self-respect of this class of our population.
