Mcd % 1 By order of the committee. Michael Dob ax, Chairman. St. Paul, July 6. 1883. Indianpolis has a training school for nurses. These days are not suggestive of sun strokes in this climate. Col. J. B. Culver, a Duluth commission merchant, died while being shaved in a barber shop, at Buffalo, yesterday. The corn crop of 1883 is estimated at from 1.000,000,000, to 1.800,000,000 bush els. The farmers are having good times. Pabties who profess to know place Mr Randall's actual strength for the speaker ship at this time, at twenty-five votes. If this is so he will have to grow pretty fast to be the winner. The Delaware peach crop is quoted at from two-thirds to three-fourths of a full crop but of a better quality than usual, so the late June fr@st was not much harm af ter all. The Philadelphia Times suggests that the best nse for the trade dollar would be to mold it into bird shot and feed it to the English sparrows. A new acd beautiful shot-gun policy. The Springfield Republican 6ays that .the talk about Tilden and the old ticket is the "emptins" of journalism. It will find that it is the grain of leaven that will hoist the administration party out of office in 1884. The Republican papers would be very happy if they could prove that Mr. Tilden is a mummy. The pricks of conscious wrong donto the late President continually goad the authors of the great fraud. Tarn the rascals out." The Democratic national convention will be composed of eight hundred and twenty delegates. In that convention the two-thirds rule will prevail. 534% votes will nominate tha next President of the United States. '"Turn the rascals out." The suggestion having been made that the Republican and Democratic candidates f or Governor i:i Ohio make a joint canvass. a Republican paper says; "that might be fun for Hoauiy. bi.t what would be for Foraker?" A rather suggestive morsel. The telephoners of Chicago go out with the repairers and Hue men on a strike to day, as the managers would not dictate terms with the executive committee of the Telegraphers' brotherhood, with which they are connected, and the "Hello*' yell will be beautifully scarce in the Garden City to day. The Kansas City people are evidently engaged in the experiment of enforcing the Sunday law with a vigor whose ulti mate object is to smash it. The latest phase of its observance is a resolution of the druggists to keep open for the sale of medicine only, but to refuse to put up any alcoholic prescription whatever. The Boston Herald thinks Mr. Arthur makes none the worse President for know ing a good dinner, and being able to enjoy and digest it, "Heaven save us" cries the Herald, "from a Presi dent who takes tea and toast regularly, and braces up on gruel." This is a sarcasm on Mrs. Hayes, or Mr. Arthur. Which? The series of civil service examinations will end this week The commissioners are disposed to recommend that the law be extended to the twenty clerk offices. This would considerably increase the num ber of places where examinations would be held. So far the examinations are re ported to have proven more satisfactory than was anticipated. A New Jeesey law which went into ef fect July 4, prohibits the sale of tobacco in any form to boys under sixteen years of age under penalty of $20 for each of fense, to be sued for and recovered by the parents or guardian of said boy. This will save much juvenile wind-pipe scorch ing by cigarette paper, one of the most injurious habits to both body and iLind that has ever cursed the youth of tl.is onntry. Thk Qlobe has ho less authority than Gen. EL N. McLaren, chairman of the Re publican State Central committee, for the statement that the Republican State com mittee desire to see the Republican State ticket elected by 2f>,000 majority. The General puts on a solemn face and declares 'pon honor that this statement is not a joke. Judging from the coolness of the atmo sphere in St. Paul thus far this week it may be concluded that this section is on the shady side of those seven "active spots" on the sun's disc as discovered by a Roches ter savant to serve up as Monday morn ing's news, and which was horoscoped as a breeder of storms and cyclones iv the northern states. A witness before the Tewksbury investi gating commission grew quite eloquent upon the high standing of the men who have served as the facu'ty of Harvard Col lege. "O yes." rejoined Gov. Butler, to whom the witness had addressd his pany geric, "one of them was hanged for mur der.'' What has Harvard gained in forc ing a controversy with Ben Butler? The proposition to confer suffrage is under discussion in the District of Colum bia. Th9re is a universal feeling among the prominent citizens against suffrage without property or educational qnnlifica lion or restriction. A decided majority of this class greatly prefer the con. .iis sioner system, but desire that all tho < >tn missioners be residents of the District, which has never been the case. The day before the Cincinnati nomina tion of 1880, General Garfield said that he hoped Mr. Tilden would not be nominated? and expressed the behet that if nominated) he would carry New York and be elected* President Arthur, who has expressed his desire for the Republican nomination in 1884. has also indicated a consuming fear of Mr. Tilden, substantially in the same term 3 used by General Garfield. "Turn the rascals out." What's the matter with Pick Dunaing ton, register of the Redwood Falls land office? A. Washington special says that he has been suspended and E. P. Freeman, of Mankato, appointed in his stead. Dick came down last winter with a candidate for postmaster of the house, and was de feated by a colored citizen, and now he is suspended. If this thing keeps on he won't be such an enthusiastic Republican in '84 as he has been. The New York Times says the Pennsyl vania Republican platform "is not a wise one but it is not likely to injure the party materially." Well, no, you can't very well injure spoilt eggs, Mr. Times. But will you tell the country why these crazy plat form builders did not propose to have the government give every citizen forty acres of land and a mule. That would on the whole be a much greater exhibit of wisdom, statesmanship if you please, than what they did propose — to distribute the surplus revenues. The Litchfield 111., Courier having criti cised the action of Alderman Barefoot in regard to the triming of the trees in the public park, the thin skinned alderman has sent the editor a challenge to fight a duel. The editor's offense cheifHy consisted in putting in print the classic language of the official. He was made very angry by seeing himself in print as others saw him. His resentment was so courageous that he put his challenge into a local paper before communicating with the editor of the Courier. The plucky editor says he is perfectly willing to afford the tree-butcher all the satisfaction he desires, in the inter est of the privilege of the public press to speak with truthful plainness of the acts of public-officials. All the duelists are not found among the southern chivalry, but the booby alderman gains no fame by that. The public sentiment of his town is entirely against him. ARTHUR THE MILLSTONE. The Chicago Tribune with sardonic per spicuity cays: The Democrats lo.)k back on a long line of defeats with New York candidates — Seymour, Greeley, Tilden, Hancock — the latter a New York man by residence, though a Penn6ylvanian by birth — and there is a wide spread feeling in the party that it is high time to try a candidate from the West. On the Republican side there is a still longer line of successes with Western men — Lincoln, Grant, Hayes, and Garfield — and a cor responding disinclination to change tactics. As a rule, the Republicans have been able to car ry New York in National elections without tak ing a candidate from New York, and the Demo prats have failed to elect a President even when they have taken a candidate from that State Hence there is a certain superstitious influence at work in both parties to avoid New York can didates. With this starting point the Tribune ar gues at some length that Arthur will prove an unsafe and uncertain candidate for the Republicans. Read between the lines the whole force of the logic employed is to point out the weakness of nominating Ar thur. The suggestion of the "old ticket"' brought cold chills to the despairing Re publicans. Arthur's movement has pro duced a crucifying fever, and just what to do is the great problem. It is hardly a case that will admit of the saying that they could be happy with either, were t'other dear charmer away. The rub is, they wan them both away. Arthur's candidacy they must treat with respect, and they are es topped by precedent and consistency of misstatement from admitting anything favorable to Mr. Tildei. It is certainly amusing to witness the perplexity of the once powerful party organization. Torn and pressed within by the ambitions of a low, tricky politician, whose accidental administration has reduced the party standard even below the point where Hayes, the great fraud left it, (the favora ble impression the murdered Garfield had made upon the country all obliterated by the acting executive) assured of defeat by the ominous voice of the people bo clearly expressed at every opportunity within the last two years, the dilema is no langhing matter to thoße at the helm of the wrecked machine. In addition to this state of eternal woe, the Republicans are confronted by a strong compact, enthusiastic party that is not contending with its own divisions, for it has none, that is not weighted down with scandals and corruptions and the memory of broken hopes and disregarded promises. A party wherein no superstitious influences are at work, but in condition to do patriot c service for their countrymen. The op portunity is before this party. The smiles of snecess are upon its standard. Victory is at its door. Whoever may be its candi date, he will he no millstone, but a gallant courageous leader, a man of the people THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, WEDNESDAY MOKNIKG, JULY 18, 1883. aronnd whom the country will rally shout ing. "Turn the rascals out.'" TUX THBKATM2TBJO STJiIKK, The threatened strike of the tele graph operators throughout the country is the most serious matter which has threatened the business interests of the country since tha great railroad strike of 1877. The demands of the operators for an advance of 15 per cent, and the reduc tion of the day to eight hours appears on the face to be unreasonable. The Western Union company has already made the working day nine hours for six days in the week, with extra pay for Sunday, and night work is based upon seven hours be ing counted as a day, with allowances for extra pay for extra hours. This is equiva lent to a very material advance in salaries and the company further express their willingness to grade salaries according to proficiency, giving the most skillful opera tors a still farther advance than that which is secured by this reduction of hours. But it is not so much with the merits of the controversy that the Globe wishes t > deal as with the methods resorted to in or der to accomplish the end desired. No body of men have a right to combine to paralyze and ruin, even though it be temporary, the business interests of the country, any more than the South had the right to block the wheels of government in 1861. Every one knows how thousands were plunged into rebellion against their inclination and better judg ment by this plea of standing by each other, and in this threatened con test the s-;:ie question or general principle is involved. No one assumes that the telegraph operators en masse would not be willing to make an equitable adjustment of their alleged grievances, but they have unwisely placed the regula tion of their affairs in the hands of a com mittee or congress, and as individuals practically have no voice in the matter . The telegraph operators in St. Paul, in Chicago, in St. Louis, and all through th< country cannot tell whether they will vacate their places at noon to day or not, be cause they do not know what orders their congress or committee may issue. The telegraphic system of the country has become so interwoven, so much an integral part of our business and social life, that such a dtrike as is threatened ceases to be a pri vate contest between employer and employe. The suspension of telegraphic service for even twenty-four hours, means abso lute ruin to business interests and we are sure the better judgment of every competent telegraph operator in the coun try will revolt against taking such a re sponsibility. The demand that all shall receive the same rate of compensation ought, of itself, to open the eyes of the operators to the weakness of their position. There is no business on earth where skill acquired by years of labor, study and experience is not en titled to more consideration and compen sation than that of those who cannot fur nish corresponding qualifications. The Globe does not champion the tele graph company or any other cor poration as against its employes, but no thoughtful man can com mend a combination to destroy the vital interests of the country, in order to secure advantages which thousands in the combination itself will not claim are alto gether and entirely just, but which they are preparing to endorse because directed to do so by a guiding head. We cannot believe that a more sober judgement will not ultimately prevail, and that the extreme measures threatened will not be resorted to. The history of all such attempts shows them to be disastrous to the parties to such combinations and while they have the power to produce widespread disaster, the Brother hood of Telegraphers will ultimately find themselves the greatest sufferers. They should act with independence, but with moderation and justice if they expect pub lic support and success. THE STATE FAIR. The Work of Preparation at Owatomia— Rush of Exhibitors for Space. R. C . Jndson, secretary of the State Ag ricultural society, was in the city for a few hours yesterday. To a Globe reporter Mr. Judson said that notwithstanding the unfortunate circumstance of the frame of the main exhibition building being pros trated by the wind storm a few days since, all the buildings would be completed days in advance of the opening of the fair. The work is being done un der the general supervision of Col. Clark Chambers, the resident member of the board, and the liitle mis hap above referred to has only served to stimulate him to greater exertions to get everything in readiness. Secretary Judson also informed the re porter that never since has connection with the state fair had he seen so favor able an outlook as at the present time. Every available part of the space will be taken, and every department filled to over flowing, and a host of individuals repre senting different agricultural im plements will erect their own buildings and on a much larger scale than ever before. One firm proposes to put up a building 40x200 feet. Nine different creameries will be represented in the dairy department, insuring much the largest and best exhibit ever made in the state. Further, Secretary Judson, said he was just in receipt of a letter from Leonard Johnson, the great Norman Percheron pur chaser in France, in which he wrote that he had purchased 365 horses, 210 of which had been shipped already, and have the cream. Am waiting to pick an extra choice lot and shall return in Au gust in time for your fair. Reserve me twenty-six stalls, and will show the people of Minnesota a lot of the very finest Nor man and English draft horses ever shown in America. In short Secretary Judson is perfectly enthused over the royal manner in which the people of Owatonna are preparing for the fair, and: the magnificent exhibition promised by engagements already closed. As will be seen by advertisements else where the privileges of the grounds will be sold at auction on the grounds, Owa tonna at 3:30 p. m. Wednesday, August 1. New York Notes. New Yobk, July 17, — Notice of contest over the will of Louis C. Hammersly was filed to-day. He left an estate valued at about $7,000,000. Certificates of incorporation of the Gol den Circle Group Mining company, having mines in Idaho, are filed. The capital stock is fixed at $500,000. Articles of incorporation of the Del monico oompany, having for its object the building and leasing of hotels in the United States, were filed. Capital $250, --000, THE PINE PIKERS. Thun<lerin<; Gordon (Jives Bail to Appear in October— He Gives Gov. Marshall Some Sharp Thrusts— Reportoriul Talks with Gordon, ('. V. Kindred and (Jen. McLaren. There were no new developments yester day in the pine land conspiracy cases upon which R. C. Mitchell, of Duluth, and H. L. Gordon, of Minneapolis, were arrested, the former on Saturday last, and the lat ter on Monday, details of which have al ready been given. At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, in accord with the understanding made Monday afternoon, Mr. Gordon appeared before D . S. Commisssioner Spencer and U. S. District Attorney Searle, and waiving examination, furnished bonds in $5,000 for his appearance for trial at the October term of the U . S. district court in this city, his own recognizance accompanied by that of Dr. A. H. Hed derlj r , of Minneapolis, being accepted. Mr. Mitchell, of Duluth, the alleged co conspirator, left for his home by the train last evening. A Globe representative met Mr. Gordon prior to his appearance before the com missioner and asked him what statement he had to make in the matter . He replied that he was not prepared to say any more than had already been published, but inti mated that lively times were in store for his accusers. "I notice Gov. Marshall says the land you tried to gobble was worfi $90,000," quoth the reporter. "Youjcan say that as Gov. Marshall is in with a crowd which has been trying to steal that pine, he ought to know its value,"' was Mr. Gordon's response. "Has Marshall been arrested yet?" "I think not. I understand he got wind that he was going to be arrested and has gone out of town." Hon.C.F. Kindred, of Brainerd, was caught on the fly in the Merchants corri dors. '•What do you know about the Dnluth pine land ruction?" was the conundrum launched at his devoted head. "I don't know anything except what I have seen in the papers," was the response. "I can say this,however,that I don't believe Mr. Mitchell will be found to be impli cated in the matter. I don't know what Mr. Gordon may have done,but Mr. Mitch has not the means to go into such an oper ation, even if he was inclined to, and I don't think Gordon would supply the capi taljto him or any one elee to engage in such a transaction. He is not that kind of a man. 1 feel sure Mitchell will come out ail right." Ex-United States Marshal McLaren wa^ met and he appeared to have a sort of lonesome air as though he was sorry to have so many arrests going on while he was out of office. He was called upon for his opinion of the rumpus. "It is a bold thing to do what Gov. Mar shall is dome, and he has a big contract on his hands. The way I understand it is that Gordon went in to defeat Kindred and elect Nelson in order to carry out his pine lane scheme. He needed Mitchell in the land I office to help him, and demanded his ap pointment by Nelson as a reward for hit services in the Fifth district last fall." "Do you think they can convict Gordon and Mitchell:" "I don't know. The cases will be post poned until fall, and it may be a difficult matter for the government to keep its wit nesses on hand." Numerous rnmors reach the Globe oi other impending arrests, ncluding some men who are high up in the comumnity Spaulding the present receiver of the Dv luth land office ,is mentioned as a coming victim. It looks like a lively war among the pine land crew. Mahtomecli. Monday, a day of recreation and rest foi the great temperance convention, was en joyed by all. Great preparations are being made for the camp meeting which opens to-night. Rev. Edward Payson Hammond the great evangelist, is present. A concer and social was held Monday evening which was a real pleasure to those present Prof. Raymond is a splendid singer Groups of people were seen yesterday pic nicing on the grounds, while others fished boated or enjoyed the cool breeze from the lake. Many peoph are coming and going, while not s few remain, all express themselves de lighted with this beautiful resort. Th< temperance meetings were considered s great success, taking into consideratioi the first ever held on the grounds. Tht camp meeting judging by what has al ready happened will be the best ever helc in the state. The first meeting was helc last night and the camp meeting will con tinue until July 26. A very successfu meeting is predicted. Preceding the meeting last night a hal hour was spent in gospel songs, Rev Ball, of Duluth. Rev. Edward Paysei Hammond, the great evangelist, preachet with great power. Mr. Hammond is ; above medium size, of nervous organiza tion. The Cottage I'ark Hop. The opening hop of the Cottage Parli association at White Bear lake last eve ning was the most brilliant social event o the summer season. The elegant clut hou?e was brilliantly lighted and hand somely decorated with flower?, am the lighting of the grounds added beautj to the scene. The 7:15 p. m. train took a large number of invited guests to the grounds from the city, and all during the evening up to 10 o'clock, visitors at other points on the lake or those who drove out from the city in carriages, were ar riving, until probably 200 guests were present. The scene was one of pleasure and brilliancy. In the parlor of the club house Mrs. P H. Kelly, Mrs. Dr. Smith, Mrs. F. Willing and Mrs. John A. Berkey held a reception and after paying respects to the ladies the visitors strolled about the spacious piazzas or joined in the dancing festivi ties as best suited them. The music was superior and the supper elegant. Messrs. P. H. Kelly, Robert Mannheimer. James Middleton, and F. Willius, promi nent members of the association, exerted hemselves to make tthe guests feel at home, and succeeded amirably. Third Jannotta Concert. On Friday evening next at Hotel Leip, White Bear lake, the Jannotta Concert company will give the thire concert of the series. A particularly fine programme has been arranged. Miss Hubbell and Mr. Dorgan will sing the duo from II Trova tore, Mr. John P. Williams will give his wonderful rendition of "Down Among the Dead Men," singing as low as double B flat. Misa Geist and Mr. Titcomb will play a piano duet presenting the "Rhapsodic Hongroise," by Liszt, Miss Hawkins will give Alfred Pease's "Cuckoo Song" and Miss Geißt the "Cappricio" for cello, by Goltermann. Mr. De Lacy will also be heard in a baritone solo. Altogether it will be the finest pro gramme yet presented by this company, and as the militia will be in camp on Fri day it is expected a large body of the soldiers will attend in uniform. Much credit is due Signor Jannotta for bringing together so much talent and for producing such a programme as will be presented Friday night next. As usual the Apollo quartet will be the feature of the enter tainment, and will again give "'The Merry Drum." THE TELEGRAPHERS. BELIEF t'TIIIT THE 'DIFFICI LTY WITH Till: COMPAyiES WILL HE SETTLED. J New York an 1 Chicago }fewspap«'r Com ment on the Proposed Strike— The Writ ers All Take sides With the Telegraph Companies Against the Operators— The Latter Advised not to iD.jure the IJusi ness of the Country by striking. [Special Telegram to the Globe. J Chicago, July 17. — There were no new developments to-day in the existing troubles between the telegraph companies and their employes. The proposition is now under advisement by the companies' officials, who will probably report to-mor row, either accepting or declining the propositions. The men all seem to feel saxguine that the companies will accede unconditionally to their demands, which they think are no more than reasonable, and should have been granted by the com panies without the asking. There is no truth in the report that the telephone company was about to discharge the ringleaders who are inciting the line men and inspectors to strike. Had the telephone company done this, the men say they would all have quit at once. There is not much prospect of a striko. It is stated on gooi authority that the trouble between the telephone company and their help will be amicably settled by to-morrow. GEXEBAL STKIKE PBEDICTED AT NOON . St. Louis, July 17. — The members of the Brotherhood of Telegraphers assert to-night that unless the Western Union company reply favorably before noon to morrow, to the memorial presented Gen eral Manager Eckert yesterday, the execu tive committee will order a strike and at 12 o'clock, New York time, every member of the brotherhood in the country will stop work and quietly abandon his post. The telegraph officials do not seem to be wor ried about the matter. New Yokk, July 17. — The Herald edito rially cays of the threatened strike of the Brotherhood of Telegraphers,that although the petition is couched in respectable terms, it leaves the impression of asking too much. It requests that a day's work be eight hours instead of nine, and a night's work seven instead of eight hours. A reduction of one -ninth in one case and one-eighth in the other. At the same time it wants all wages increased 15 per cent., irrespective of age, skill or position of op erator, besides extra compensation for Sunday work. The real effect of these de mands can be best illustrated by example. Day operators receive say $75 per month, or counting nine hours to a day and six days to a week, about thirty five cents an hour. Under the pro posed rate monthly wages will be $86.25. A day's work will be eight hours during six days in a week or about 45 cents per hour, an actual increase of more than 27 per cent. In regard to the Wheatstone operators an increase of 65 per cent, is demanded for them. Un the whole it may be doubted whether the operators have presented a strong case. That evils ex ist cannot be questioned, but they will not be remedied by the course taken. The executive committee of the Western Union Telegraph company will meet to-morrow, and the petition of the operatives will then be brought to their consideration. One of the officers of the company said to-day: It was impossible to say what ac tion will be t°.k«n. The general opinion was that the demaLd was excessive and unreasonable. No action has yet been taken by the Mutual Union, American. Rapid and Baltimore & Ohio companies. The newspapers are giving considerable space to the threatened telegraph trouble, both in the nature of interviews and edi torial comments. From the Mail and Express: "The situation is one that deserves to be very carefully scanned and thoroughly understood by all those directly or isdi rectly interested, that is to say, by every body. The electric wires are the nervous system of the country. Their functions are so vital that no corporation or associa tion of men would long be allowed to con trol them, in disregard to public interests. The civilization and business of the country having been developed on the basis of universal telegraphy, that basis must be preserved without interrup tion. The public has rights that will some how be enforced, and there is a limit to the natural right of the employe to strike. It is our belief the directors of the great employer of telegraph operators, the Western Union, are disposed to deal 6quarely and generously with its employes whenever they deputize any one or more to present causes of complaint. The danger with the newest of labor organiza tions, is, first, that it is secret and oath bound, and liable to fall into the hands of a few selfishly ambitious wire pullers, and second,that the capacity for wholesale mis chief possessed by telegraphers is liable to turn the heads of some of the leaders. The operators cannot afford to allow a few men with heads turned by sudden power and opportunity to precipitate a conflict, in which the aggressors will be outlawed from public favor and private considera tion. It will not be well for the operators if they so lose their heads as to provoke the lasting disfavor of an intelligent peo ple, for recklessly using the peculiar op portunities given them to annoy the pub lic. Let them be prudent and keep an intelligent and just public opinion on their side, and they will get all to which they are entitled." From the Even ing Post : " That which in terests the public most, and on which the public can form an opinion, is the means to which operators intend to resort in order to enforce their demands. A strike of tel egraphers now, when so large a proportion of the business of the country in every de - partment is carried on by telegraph that credit in the commercial and financial world may be said to rest on it, is a very serious matter indeed. Telegraphing is a mystery — a small mystery it is true — but one which nobody can master in a day, or a week, so that the telegraph operators have it in their power to inflict enormous loss and the inconvenience of the community by refusing to do their work until their employers comply with their demands. Now the question whether any body of men ought to be allowed, for any purpose, to inflict this loss and incon venience on the public, is one of which the growing complexity of modern uociety will soon compel a peremptory settlement. The country cannot allow strikes of em ployes in these great public services any more than it can allow the corporations themselves to refase to carry on their business as a means of extracting what they think fair rates of transportation." From the Commercial Advertiser : "Fhb last development in the telegraph trouble is, that speculators in Wall street are offer ing money to the operators to strike. This is the last phase of the war on telegraph companies, but the publication of the names of the unscrupulous persons who are urging on a struggle that would pro duce incalculable loss to the coun' -y, may not be so pleasant to them as beating Western Union stock down would. These people tread on dangerous ground when they make this attempt." From the Herald : "On the whole, it may be doubted whether the operators have presented, a strong case. That evils exist cannot be questioned, but they will net be remedied by the course taken." Chicago, July 17. — The press comments here relating to the threatened strike of telegraph operators, while kindly intended to the operators, are in opposition to such movement, which is regarded as unwise and unwarranted. The Times says: "To this aspect of the case the Times desires in all friendly feeling to invite the attention of the Telegraph Brotherhood. All who are at all familiar with the history of strikes know that success in a strike against employers of abundant means and deter mination has rarely if ever been achieved . The common course of such efforts has led to great loss and often great suffering among the strikers and to ultimate resumption of work, when permitted to resume, at rates affording no recompense for the sacrifice. "With none but the kindest feelings for the operators now threatening a strike, and without enter ing at all into the merits of their contro versy with the telegraph companies, the Tiiiic.s is constrained to believe that admit ting the worst that can be reasonably predicted in the way of inconvenience to the business community and of loss to the companies, the only really irreparable damage that can result from the coming suspension of work will be to the operators themselves. They propose to throw away earnings amounting to from $10,000 to $20,000 a day more or less, and even if their utmost demands should be conceded in the end, the increase of pay £they ask would hardly in a year make good the amount they will lose in a month. The situation and its probable outcome de serves calm and judicial consideration, which there is some reason to fear the mass of operators have not given it. THE ffIJjJOILD. GREAT BRITAIN. London, July 17. — In the house of lords this afternoon Granville stated that on grounds of expediency he justified the agreement made by the government with De Lesseps, whose absolute monopoly of power to construct a canal across the isth mus was not admitted in the negotiations. Salisbury said he was surprised to hear that the concession of De Lesseps gave him power to bar a passage between two Beas. He argued that neither the sultan nor khedive was competent to make such a grant.

A great deal of fault is being found between Fargo and Bismarck on the Northern Pacific railroad, on account of the insufficient passenger accommodations. Every night, dozen of persons are com pelled to lie over, or not go, because the sleepers are full. It is safe to say that enough to fill an ordinary sleeping car are refused berths every day . Apparently a Crank. There seems to have been a crank pre vailing quite largely at Menoken recently. His name is Evans and he is now safely odged in the Bismarck jail. A few days ago he stabbed a farmer named Sinclair very seriously, and was captured after a long, hard chase. In an interview with a reporter of the Bismarck Tribune he gave evidence of being totally off, mentally, mentioned several times about being robbed at Ogden, Utah, some years ago, and it. is, therefore, supposed that this was what destroyed his reason. People in the vicinity feel reliev ed at knowing that he is under restraint. The Fargo & Southern Railway. The Argus to-morrow will contain an editorial on the Fargo & Southern railway and its advantages to Fargo and the north west. It will say that tho policy of the roads now reaching here has driven out $1,000,000 capital, which outside the opin ion of the paper is an absolute fact. Peo- • ple here are more interested in the Fargo & Southern than anything else, and the chamber of commerce has appointed a. committee to solicit subscriptions from citizens for the purchase of depot grounds in the center of the city, as the grounds purchased by the company for that pur pose are some distance from business. Arrangements are now being made for three wholesale houses in Fargo with the advent of freight over the new line, Burglars Abroad. Burglars are having a picnic in Fargo and Moorhead, with none to molest or make them afraid. They entered the resi dence of C. E. Eddy last night at '.> o'clock while the family were temporarily absent and stole some money. During the even ing they broke into the residence of Horace Hance, but took nothing, being evidently after money. They also attempted to get into the residence of Ed. Ohmer, but a dog came at them. They shot the dog and ran « They also poisoned two very fine imports setters, the property of Sam Mairs, and probably the finest dogs in the northwest, worth $150 each. There are many re marks being made not complimentary to the police force. Eleven policemen con stitnte the force, and people say it is no good, and wonder why the mayor does not distinguish his administration by thor oughly reorganizing it and putting a stop to the burglaries. So far as reported no person has been held op or molested on the streets. Heartless Desertion. Bismarck gives a sad case of desertion. The facts, as given in the Tribune, are practically as follows: Five years ago, Mr. George Shirley was married to a young and good looking girl in Canada. Last year the couple came to Bismarck and went to work. He took up a claim and she went into business as a dressmaker, and evidently not a ripple of unpleasant ness ever crossed their path. During his spare time he worked at his trade, carpen tering, and all went well, the pair evidently making a good living. Late last fall he went to his claim to build a house, and after finishing it built one for another set tler in the same locality, Mrs. Shirley in the meantime going to Mile 3 City, Mon tana, and starting a dressmaker's shop. She was to return early in the spring, and he would hold his claim down during the winter and return about the same time. But she did not some until May, and was met with open arms by the husband, who was delighted at her return. But he noticed a change in her. She was restless and un easy, and her amiability was changed to obstinacy. She finally told him that while in Mile 3 City she had met one Alexander McKay, to whom she was engaged before she married Shirley, and that the former wanted her to get a divorce and marry him. McKay had also threatened to kill himself or her if such a course was net taken. She promised, however, after some argument to remain with her husband, but continued to receive letters from the other fellow, and one day last week took the train for the west with an unknown man, who is supposed to be McKay. Mr . Shirley will institute proceedings for a divorce. Ocean Steamships .

"The Republican nomination is coming West, and is coming right here to St. Lou is." "To St. Louis '."exclaimed the astonished scribe, trying to think of a man likely to attract the lightning. "Yes to St. Louis, if the citizon you are expecting here comes, will let us nominate him and does not blurt out too much in the mean while. I refer to Tecumseh Sherman. If he will keep quiet and let us do it, we'll nominate him for the next President. He can keep on kissing the girls, that will only make the people think him the young er than he is," laughingly added the ex- Speaker as he walked away.
