These is evidence of improper sewerage for the editorial slop of the Evening Dis gust. The Hon. Wm. E. Chandler won't go to the senate this year. This is an off year for statesmen of his class. It may be "the organ" of the party, but it has as much effect to give it warmth as an old brass warming pan at an iceberg picnic. At Louisville, President Arthur slept upon a bed made for the occasion, costing $2,000. There's nothing small about Chet. "Torn the Rascals out." It is said that there was never known a . year when bees vere so prolific as the present one. The reason seems to be especially auspicious for the .busy bees. Theee may be such a thL^ as a mule in Montana that can give Presi^© 11 * Arthur a geological point on the formation of the soil of that territory as well as Ch'* 6 * Jus *jpo Waite.

Miss Hawkins' many friends will be glad to welcome her as the star of the evening. The members of the American Associ ated Pre3s, one of the most important bodies of newspaper men in the entire country, will be the guests of St. Paul a portion of to-day, and will be given a view of the city this morning. They leave to night for the Yellowstone park, returning in two weeks. The German universities are arranging severe Measures against the practice of duelling. After a student gets bounced over there for upholding his honor with pistol or rapier he can come over to the United States and edit a southern newspa per and have all the fun he wants in that direction without let or hindrance . It has the appearance that the cholera ravages in Egypt have, as far as possible up to this time, been kept sub rosa. The stoppage of the running of a railway on account of the prevalence of the plague, as announced last night, would lead to the inference that the scourge was occupying a front seat in the land of the Pharaohs. Kentucky has 2,059 paupers, being one to each 800 of the population. Indiana has 3,965, one to each 500; Ohio 7,463, one toeaoh43o. Pennsylvania 12,646, one to each 339. Massachusetts 5,423, being one to each 328 of the population. Mas sachusetts, with its proud ancestry, has more than two times as many paupers, who are cared for at the public expense, as Kentucky. The lines of caste are more strongly drawn .in New England than in Kentucky. Where there is most aristoc racy there is most poverty, but there is only one Tewksbury. (There Massachusetts stands alone in her glory. Pbesident Abthuk, it was understood," was going to the Yellowstone for recrea tion and to get out of the way of poli ticians, but the way they seem to be gath ering.in his front and rear, don't argue much success in the latter direction, though possbily he may hook a boiled catfish or two out of the main geyser by way of recreation. Senatob Lsgan has not heard of any sat isfactory candidate for president among the chiefs of the Republican * party. He does not incline to Edmunds, is confident David Davis is not available, does not be lieve the country would accept Arthur, and so goes through the list, finding blemishes in each one, or, rather showing the good judgment to paint the weakness of the public men of the Re publican party. Finding himself thus among the tombstones, the senator will do well to contemplate what it would be to find association among living men. He might, for instance, come out in support of Mr. Tilden and gain leadership by un dertaking to atone for the stolen presi dency. Clearly Senator Logan should soon decide where he will take his stand, whether he will place himself where he can occupy the vantage ground that is imported by healthful life, or whether he is content to remain with a local party organization. Of course the senator had nothing to say about the mention sometimes made of his name, and perhaps he floes not intend to be a candidate. If he does not he is wise, for we reckon "Black Jack" would be all too soon torn to pieces by the factions of his own party. The senator talks freely, but we can hardly say wisely or well. Lo gan can do the country some good by helping to "Turn the Rascals'out". Will he do it? SECRETARY TELLER'S VACATIOK. Secretary Teller, of the interior depart ment, is absent from Washington, as is the president, and as also are the other mem bers of the cabinet, We are happy to say, however, that in his case his absence is proper. He is not seeking a senatorship, a la the secretary of the navy or passing his time in merely idle pleasure. The first moment of his vacation he devotes to a visit to his aged mother re siding at Morrison, Ills., where with his wife and children he is happy to spend a couple of weeks in rational dignified rest. After this visit he intends going to Col orado, where his private bsuiness matters need his personal attention. He will re turn to Washington the latter part of August, about the time the president turns up from his Yellowstone "exploration." Upon political topics the secretary does not talk like a man concerned or burdened with party management. As to the next president, he says he is neither a prophet or the son of a prophet, but thinks the Republicans will elect in 1884. The reader will enjoy his vieV« regarding civil service reform and the Indian service. Being asked how the new civil service system succeeds in the Interior department; he said: "I have had no occasion to test it so far. My department is about as well organized and equip ped as it could be, and I do not believe even a civil service reform commission could improve it much. The several bureaus under my super vision, the Patent office, Pension office, Indian office, and L^nd office, are in splendid shape, and there wiU bo no necessity for the appoint ment of new nlerks for some time. The busi ness of the censoc office is being gradually clos ed up, and there are 150 clerks there, the cream of the bureau, who will be transferred to other branches of the departsaent as fast as they are needed. They are all skiilful, competent clerks, and better ones than couM be secured by new appointments .* Not long 6ince the secretary in troduced a new policy in the Indian service — that of withholding supplies of coffee, sugar, etc., from Indians that will not work. Speaking of this innovation he said: "It works well. Instead of distributing these luxuries promiscuously and gratuitously, like flour and beef, as was the practice formerly, we now give them as a reward of merit to Ind ian^ who show some desire to sustain them b 9h/3s, and the agents are directed to issue these supplies pnly to those who are industrious. My theory of Indian government is to apply to 1 thaw the samp rules that make good -Ht O f white people, educating citizens v.. *•* teaching the adults the children, an^ of in the necessity and *. -nraunity of dustry. If you would place a co~ ..^ £ white people, ignorant and indifferent t... v . own welfare, in the same circumstances . n which the Indians are placed at the agencies, and furnish them all they want to eat, without requiring any exertion on their part, they would behave no better than the Indians do, and would b9 quite as troublesome as they are. We must teach the savages the necessity of education and industry if we ever make them self-support ing." "How tare the Indian ' schools, getting on? Splendidly. The number of pupils is increasing rapid l ;/, and the Indians no longer are reluctant to ', a their children there. Some of the brig>_, t nnil most successful scholars are from tribes that only recently were »n the War-paUi* ] It would surprise you to see how quick they learn, and how soon they adapt themselves to the ways of civilization." AfiBITRATIOX HX ZAW, There is one advantage likely to grow out of the telegraph strike anu that is to give the country an experience which will result in legislation to prevent all kinds of labor strikes. The way to prevent them is to provide some means by which the rights of both employer and employe can be subserved and protected and make it compulsory by law to invoke thejremedy provided, instead of resorting to the incongruous, unsatis factory and often unlawful manner now in vogue. The positton of the Western Cnion Telegraph company that it will treat with the telegraph operators as individuals but not as a brotherhood, has right element as an abstract principle, though quite a doubtful element of equity in its practical application. There ought to be in the telegraph, and every other business, an individual independence, and each man stand and act for himself, and not according to the dictation of some one else. That is a general and sound princi ple, but here is the telegraph company that is of itself a combination and an individ ual is practically powerless to cope with it unless there is some legal tribunal to whioh an appeal can be had. That is what has led the operators to combine. It is combination to meet combination and until there is some remedy provided, that result will follow. The best means to reach the desired end is not an easy matter to determine, and demands sareful thought and considera tion . Here is one plan suggested by the New York Public, which has some strong points: "Strikes are foolish, wasteful, injurious to the interests of the whole country, demoralizing to labor, and a constant menace to capital which deters it from investment in productive industry. The working people of the country THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, THURSDAY MORNING, AUGUST 2, 1883. have the power to secure whatever is reasonable and just in a much less costly and more sensible way. They can provide by law for abitration in all cases of controversy between employers and employed. Upon the demand of either party a tribunal may be created, embracing one person named by each and a tliird upon whom the two may agree. If the two cannot select a third within twenty-four hours they may be re quired by law to accept as umpire a public offi cer elected for the purpose under such condi tions as to secure a man of standing, character, and independence. It may be made the duty of the two parties who require the services of this umpire to pay him equally a reasonable fee for the time required . To this tribunal each party may state its case, and the finding of the majority shall thentbe final, as fixingjthe re sponsibility for any failure of public service or any non-performance of private centract which may result from refusal to accept it. Any strike organized without seek ing arbitration, or in defiance of the finding of arbitrators, should then be made unlawful, and every participator therein should be punished. ■ Let us see how this would work. The operators demand an arbitration; if the company refuse to name a man at once tne other two have power to act . If the persons selected by the operators and the company fail to agree upon a third, a public officer like Charles F. Adams, jr., would be called in. The men would show their grievances and ' wants, and the company submit its reasons. If the tribunal should find against the company it would have power to refuse of course, but would then instantly become liable for non-per formance of a public service if a message should be offered and should not be correctly and promptly delivered. Or if the men, regard less of an adverse decision, should organize a strike, each .of the . participants would be punishable. The practical results would be that nearly all disputes would . be settled by arbitration— quickly, peaceably, and with trifling expense. Would not that be a great ga. : n for both parties and for the community? THE DEMOCRATIC STATE CONVEX TIQX, The Delegates Arriving— List of Those Already on Hand— Shall Be domi nated for Governor? The Democratic state convention will convene at Market hall at 12 m. to-day. The offices for which candidates are to be placed in nomination are governor, lieu tenant governor, treasurer, secretary of state and railroad commissioner. From the arrivals of delegates up to last evening the indications are that the convention will be large and represen tative. A tour of the hotels last evening showed the following accredited delgates in our city, or "accounted for." Olrasted— W. L. Brackenridge, A . Bier man, R. A.

Up to the present writing the delegates in the city seem to be at sea with refer ence to the composition of the ticket. About the only talk indulged last evening was with reference to the head of the ticket, forlwhich Mayor Ames of Minneapolis is being urged by the Hennepin delegation, and A. Bierman, of Rochester, by the Olmsted delegation, but nothing transpired to show the relative strength of the two gentlemen . The other positions were only incidentally alluded to, and really nothing has been done yet toward making a slate. There was some talk of a caucus this morning before the meeting of the convention to exchange views, but no final determination in the matter was reached. It is expected that fhe early trains to-day will brirjg in dele gates frorri nu> ? t of tM counties not rep resented in tae abo c list, and as said abow that the convojition will be large jiod representative, n T ' f ' Xii Himself. About yi^'j o'clock yesterday afternoon, a map named Patrick Nolan, who resides t)n the corner of Fifth street and Broadway, shot himself with fi revolver, the ball en tering tho right broasi, and lodging be neath the skin under the left shoulder blade, where it was cut out by Dra. Mur phy and Quinn. The man came here several weeks ago, from Mandan, and it aeoms has been suffering from a hallucina tion that he was followed by some man that was going to shoot him. He has been so impressed wiih thie idea that he has kept quite ciose to his hoase. and a good portion of the time that he has been in St. Paul he has not Hit it all. The family consists only of the man and his wife and they are in very poor circumstances indeed. The tevolver he shot himself with he brought with him from Mandan but his wife did not know he bad it. The wound is painful and has greatly reduced him, but it is not expected that it will result fatally. The Milwaukee Soldiers' Home. Adjutant Genera) Hawley has secured the entrance of thirteen old Minnesota veterans to the Soldiers' home in Milwau kee the past year, and an acceptance notice was received and transportation sent to him yesterday for Sebastian Ach fulg, an aged veteran, for whom he has recently applied for admittance. John Dune, a member of the Fourteenth Indi ana regiment, who is a resident of St. Paul, applied to Gen. Hawley yesterday to obtain admittance for him to the home, be having lost his wife and four children by death, and being homeless and hope less. There are said to be seventy Minne sota veterans now at the Milwaukee re treat. Articles of Incorporation, Articles of incorporation were filed with the secretary of state yesterday of the chamber of commerce of the city of St. Cloud for advancing the commercial, mer cantile and manufacturing interests there of.

THEIR SPINS ALONG THE COURSE. The Programme for To- Day —Other Sporting Matters. The events on the programme for the first day of the grand regatta at Lake Minnetonka have beoome matters of rec ord, and it is to be regretted they cannot be written of as having met with a full measure of success. By this, reference is not had to rowing alone, for taken as an exhibition of what trained muscle can ac complish in the manipulation of oars, the regatta was an enjoyable success. But aside from this there was something want ing, the absence of which tended to mar the pleasure and detract from the interest of the events. In the first place the attendance was not nearly so large or enthusiastic as it should have been. This was chargeable to a great extent upon the unfavorable character of the weather during the early part of the day. The day was ushered in with rain and storm. Clouds hung over the lake in a threatening manner throughout the fore noon. As the hour approached for the races to begia the sky cleared up, and the lake, which had been rough and choppy all day, commenced to assume a normal condition, saving a stiff breeze, which prevailed • during the after noon, and made the lake lumpy. A more favorable condition of the weather could not have been desired. Overhead the day was perfect, while the breeze was delightfully cool and refresh ing. The early trains from St. Paul, Minneapolis and Stillwater did not carry out as many visitors as was expected, but as 2 o'clock approached the coaches arriv ing were more crowded, and the manage ment took on a more cheerful countenance. Tne oarsmen were on hand early in the day, and they were naturally the objects of great curiosity and interest. The entries included Edward Hanlan, of Toronto, the champion oarsman of the world, Gao. W. Lee, of New Jersey, the ex-champion amateur, Geo. H. Hosmer, of Boston, Fred Plaisted, of New York, JamesW. Reilly, of Saratoga Springs, and John Teemer, of McKeesport, Pa. With such a constella tion of distinguished oarsmen some rare excitement was expected, and as before stated the rowing was excellent. It wa3 not known until yesterday how the purse was to be divided, and it is con sidered that if more judgment had been applied in this respect the result might have been different. That is to say if in stead of giving Hanlan $1,500 just to start and the other entries $300 each, tie puree had been divided up for first, second and third place, the contestants might have exerted themselves more and the heats have been more interesting. It was also considered an oversight by some that the programme of each day's events had not been publish ed, but as this was a mattei which con cerned the management they no doubt pursued the course thought best, and per haps it might not have made a difference. At any rate they did all in their power for the comfort and convenience of the public yesterday, and for this the crowd in attendance have reason to feel grateful. The races were announced to begin at 2:30 o'clock, but it was long after this hour when the first heat was called. Meantime the lake never presented a lovelier or more nnnimated appearance, crowded as it was with craft; of every imaginable design and description, from the etately steamer to the humble clug-ont- The steamers looked especially majestic and beautiful, and the Belle of Minnetonka, the Lotuß and Hattie May, all did a driving business. Commodore Zimmerman was on hand con stantly and contributed a very great deal to the comfort of the passengers. The above named steamers carried several loads to Enchantment island, the scene of the race, while every boat on the lake was pressed into the service. The tug, Saucy Kate, left the Hotel Lafay ette landing about 3 o'clock, having on board the judges, time-keeper and repre sentatives of the press. She was gayly decorated and presented a very natty ap pearance. Arriving at the 901"^ 9 which was laid out f rom south shore of Enchantment i9land and thence to Smithtown bay and return> a distance of one mile and a half each way, the scene looked more encouraging. A lovelier o int for the heats could not have beer*, selected, and the cro wds of spectators lining the gr9en and gently sloping banks, together with the gay pennants floating from the shoal of white winged jachts and other smaller fry, made the, picture very charm ing. The grand r jtand was almost de serted, spectators, preferring to occupy the At 3:30 o'clock the Saucy Kate steamed up to the, starting buoys and whistled the signal f or the contestants to take their positions. The judges were J. A. St. John, St. Louis, <Fame 3D. O'Brien, Stillwater, and D. A. McDonald, La Crosse, the time keeper being Mr. Wallace. The heats were under the supervision of Mr. W. C. Dole, Jr., Mr. Ed. Comings, of this city, being in charge of the general arrangements. The programme consisted of two heats, the choice of the first heat falling to Lee, Teemer and Plaisted, who started in the positions named. The colors were Lee, red; Teemer, blue; Plaisted, white. At 4: 37 o'clock the word was given to go, when the oarsmen pulled away from the standing buoys with a clean even stroke. A better start could not have been desired, and after a few lengths had been made Plaisted urged his shell ahead, pulling forty strokes to the minute. But it became evident before long that the efforts of the New York boy was spasmod ic, for his stroke soon dropped to thirty four, while Lee and Teemer were both pulling long steady strokes with no signs of fatigue or weaknes. Before the turn had been half reached Plaisted showed signs of weakening; once he almost came to a dead halt, and, seeming to change his mind, he started up again. At this time Teemer and Lee were doing some tidy work, the former being about a half length ahead, with thirty -two dips to the minute, while Lee was pulling about thirty strokes. When within about 100 yards of the turn Plaisted rested on his oars, and made no effort to reach the stake. The turn was made by Lee in 9:55 and by Teemer in ten minutes. At this time Lee was pulling twenty-eight strokes and Teemer thirty-two to gthe minute, Lee be ing nearly two lengths ahead. On the return some pretty rowing was witnessed, Teemer gradually lessening the distance to one half length and then crawling ahead and taking the lead by nearly a length at the finish. Course, three miles, Time, Teemer, 21:50. Lee, 21:58^, The heat was witnessed by both Hanlan and Hosmer, who were on the lake in their shells. THE SECOND HEAT. The entries for the second heat and the positions were as follows: Position. Color. Hosmer No. 1. Red Hanlan No. 2. Blue Reilly No. 3. White This was anticipated as the event of the day, introducing as it did the supposed to be invincible champion Hanlan. It was 5:08 o'clock when the men drew up for the start. The brass band, which had been tooting a lively air on the grand stand, ceased to agitate the inoffensive atmosphere and every one was on the tip-too of expectancy. The water was ruffled to some extent and choppy, but under the circumstances this presented no serious obstacle to a start. When the word *'go" was given, Hosmer got among the first, with Hanlan and Riley a stroke in the rear, but i>is position was only temporary, for the champion braced up and commenced to put in his lace licks ill a manner that soon gave him the lead. At the one-half mile on the up turn Hanlan was about five lengths ahead and pulling about thirty-four strokes to the minute. The other contestants were about even, their stroke being at thirty-two. About this time the Canuck slowed up and showed that it was breaking easily for him, by the nonchalent way he dipped his hands into ' the water and laved his face. When three quarters had been rowed Hosmer was second, but as the turn was neared Riley orawled ,up on him, and the rowing of these two was beautiful. Hanlan touched the turn at a 9:50 gait, Hosmer at 9:58 and Riley at 10:06. On the return Hosmer made a fine spurt, sweeping ahead, with Riley 100 yards astern. The race was now between Hanlan and Hosmer, their time being about thirty five strokes to the minute. Hanlan took matters easily, however, and for the next quarter of a mile some very pretty pad dling was done. As the home stake was neared Hanlan drew ahead, and pulled away from his competitor, and when the flag fell he was abont three lengths ahead. The time was; Hanlan...: i; .. 21:38>^ Hosmer 22. Riley '.. 24:15 In conversation with Riley after the race, he stated that he had never been able to win*a heat during the prevalence of a wind. FOB THE BATTEAUX BACE announced there was only one entry, the Stillwater team, composed of Jerry Don ovan, bow, Thos. Scully, stroke, and Mi chael Donovan and Thos. McCarthy. Otis Staples acted as boatswain. To make the thing interesting, Messrs . Parker, McLar en and Butler, of this city, manned a 6hell, with Norman Wright as stroke, and an effort was made to give the Stillwater boys a whirl. The chances were, of course, not even, and it would be unfair to describe what was only an attempt at a race . THE PBOGBAMME FOB TO-CtAY includes a saw-off, in which Messrs. Hanlan, Hosmer, Lee and Teemer will compete, and it is needless to say that some splendid diversion is assured. This will be followed by a consolation race, open to all but the winners. To-morrow a heat is announced be tween Parker and Gandour, and as this will be only one feature of the programme a gala day may be expected. Yesterday Hosmer remarked that after the regatta he would be open to match all oarsmen but Hanlan. An effort has been made by parties from Winnipeg to have Hanlan visit that city, but as the champion is now over-weight, and as he desires to train for the match with Ross at Watkins, N. V., on the 14th inst,, he will proceed at once to that city. Tlic Saratoga Races. Sabatoga, Aug. 1. — First race, mile for 3-year-old fillies, won by Imogene Princess, L. Louis 2d, Sallie McCoy 3d.

The Chicago Ideal Opera company gave to a very large audience at the Opera louse last night, one of the freshest, brightest and, in all respects one of the most charming entertainments ever pre sented in this city. There is nothing worn or haggard about the company, but on the contrary everything about it is fresh and sparkling like a rose with the morning dew upon it. The voices, the costumes, the faces and the general make up of the whole company has an air of gentility about it, and every member ap- . pears to enter into the spirit of the opera with spirit and glee. It was delightful to listen to the sweet fresh voices, as they rendered the charming, though somewhat involved numbers of Gilbert and Sullivan's lolan the. The orchestra though not large was sufficient and was undar good control. For the number engaged it was quite strong in the strings, which were very good. The general appearance of the people on the stage made a fine appearance, the cos tume 3 being full of variety, and bright in color. It seemed as though every per son on the stage received pleasure in ren dering his or her part, and this had the ef fect of giving unusual spirit and brillian cy to the whole opera. Miss Jessie Bart lett Davis made an excellent fairy queen. Her voice is exceedingly pleasant and some of her tones were magnificent. She sung and acted and spoke in an exceed ingly pleasing and intelligent manner. Miss Ada Somers made a lively, bright and sparkling Phyllis, and did some ex cellent pinging, especially in the quartet in the last act. Miss Mac St. John is un questionably the best lolanthe we have ever had in St. Paul. Her singing was a very pleasing charac ter and the impression she made upon her hearers was of the very pleasantest character. Mr. Cripps as the chancellor was exquisite, and in his "Says I to Myself song, he introduced some pointed hits upon the telegraphers' strike, and the racing at Lake Minnetonka. Pri vate Willis was stiff enough and prim enough to make half a dozen grenadiers, besides this, he sang finely. Several times during the opera encores were forced upon the company.

Arrival of the Party in St. Paul— A Day light Run From Chicago— The L,ist of the Excursionists— Programme for To-Pay. The Western Associated Press excursion party arrived in St. Paul from Chicago over the Chicago & Northwestern railway, astheguests of the road, at 6 :45 o'clock last evening, St. Paul time. The start was made at 7 a. m. so that, allowing for the difference in time, the run was really made in twelve hours and five minutes, the fastest time made by a railroad train between Chicago and St. Paul. The distance by the Chicago & Northwestern road is 409 miles, making the actual speed for the entire distance a fraction over thirty-nine miles an hour. There were, however, twenty-three stops on the trip, consuming ;iu hour aud forty-c^l.t miuu'uee, making lire actual speed of the train while in motion, within a fraction of forty miles an hour. The members composing the party ex press particular gratification at the very handsome manner in which they were treated by the officers of the railroad com pany. The train was a handsome one, composed of General Superintendent Laying's official car "No. 3," the new Wagner car "Dixon," the dining car "Wisconsin," and a baggage car. The ex cursion was in charge of R. H. Hare, of the general passenger department of the road at Chicago, (formerly of St Paul), an affable an energetic official, ever on the alert to do that which might render com fort to the people in his charge. The conductor of the train was R. Math eson. The dining car was in charge of I. H. Shattuck, superintendent of the dining parlor car service of the Chicago & North western railway. Three fine meals were served en route. The dinner was a superb meal — most elaborate, of ten courses — as surprising in its character as it was grati fying. The cook deserves 'a word, having proved himself a chef de cuisine in every sense. His name is J.Thomas, for some time in the service of the Chicago & Northwestern, but formerly an old Detroit river steamer cook. Specially printed descriptive guides of the country traversed were furnished the excursionists, as were also bills of fare, both so hand somely printed that they were eagerly sought for by every member of the party to preserve as souvenirs. The title page of the guide was most happily designed and artistically executed. As a foundation was a writing outfit, paper, ink, pens, etc., with the inscription: "Through by day light from Chicago, 111., to St. Paul, Minn., via the Chicago & Northwestern railway, Wednesday, August 1, 1883. Complimen tary to the Associated Press." Before dismissing the rapid run from Chicago to St. Paul, the Globe desires to remember Mr. Hare for his thoughtfulness in furnishing us with advance copies of the Chicago morning papers, he leaving the papers in the editorial rooms at just 7 o'clock in the evening, St. Paul time, whereas by regular train they will not reach the postoffico and news dealers until 6:30 this morning, and the public some time later. The excursionists were all well posted in the St. Paul news of the day, copies of the Globe meeting them en route, much to their gratification.

The Marriage of Minnie Conicay and Os- tnond Tearle at Denver. [New York Special July Sl.] ; There was a perceptible flutter of ex citement among the small knot of theat rical people who were lounging about the entrance to the Casino about !> o'clock to night. A telegraphic dispatch was hand ed eagerly around, reading as follows: "Denver, Colo., July 31, 1883. — Miss Con way and Osmond Tearle were married here at noon to-day, and we are all drinking their health." The telegram was signed by a well known actress and addressed to her hus band, who was one of tha group on the steps. Miss Minnie Conway, whose name has of late been before the courts frequently, is a handsome blonde who fell a victim to the fascinations of Mr. Levy, or Levy's cornet, and seven years ago was married to him. Levy, however, already had a wife and family in England, and at length trouble arose in his new domestic relations,, While Mr. Levy was letting the sea breezes waft the dulcet strains of his cornet to the ears of admiring crowds at Coney Island, Mrs. Levy went abroad to study music. There she met Mr. Tearle, and the two arrived together in this city on the same steamer. Then the trouble increased. Mrs. Levy now appeared upon the scene and began a suit for divorce against her husband, who had procured from her a divorce in a western state without thinking it worth while to impart the infor mation to her. The deserted wife returned to England before the termination of the proceeding?, but another suit was begun in her name and a decree of absolute di vorce was obtained. Then Mrs. Levy No. 2 had her marriage with Levy annulled. This decree was entered last week, and left all the parties to the proceedings as they were before Miss Conway sneeumbed to the fascinations of the cornet . But L .ealth compelled a visit to the balmy air of Colorado, whither by a curious co incidence Mr. Tearle had preceded her. Mr. Tearle had not been altogether free from marital troubles. The day before Mrs. Levy-Conway-Tearle obtained her decree of annulment Mary Alice Tearle obtained an absolute divorce from her hus band, George Osmond Tearle. Irish National League Council. New Yobk, Aug. 1. — Tho executive coun cil of the Irish National League of America met to-day. There were also present Pat rick Egan, and Matthew Harris, of Ireland, and the Rev. Dr. Charles O'llielly, of De troit, treasurer of the National League of America. President Alexander Sullivan was in the chair. The league disposed of a large amount of routine business and received reports from various parts of the country. Among the subjects considered was that of the so-called land grabbing in the southern and western states and in the territories by English aristocrats and Eng lish corporations. A committee was ap pointed to secure a complete report in each state and territory of the quantity of lands thus taken. A New Railroad Project. | Special Telegram to the Globe . ] Milwaukee, Aug. 1. — A number of Jack son county gentlemen are laboring with the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul peo ple for the construction of a railway line from Remington directly west to Black River Falls, a distance of thirty-five miles, with a pos sible further extension from Black River Falls to Winona junction, thirty miles dis tant, whereby connection will be made with the St. Paul company's main line and a direct rail connection with La Crosse be established. The now Duchess Dowager of Marl borough, was,like her sister,the late Count ess of Portarlington, one of the great belles of London about 1845, disputing the sovereignty of beauty with Lady Jersey's two daughters, Lady Clementina and Lady Adela Yilliers. The duchess dowager has been a grand dame all through her life , and ruled absolutely the late duke, who was a quiet, gentle kind of man. She was in her glory aping royalty and holding mock court in Dublin, When she paid her first visit to London she appeared in the park in a landau and four, with outriders, after the fashion of the queen,who instantly sent her a message to moderate her style. One of her brothers, who waß married to a daughter of the good Duke of Newcastle, Lord Adolphus Vane, who died a lunatic, was for some time in the country under the care of his medical attendant; and another, Lord Ernat Vane, who is living, served in the Northern army as aide-de camp to Gen. Stone.
