controversy relative to Minneapolis'

St. Paul, we give the Minneapolis
wail in another column. It is
interesting as showing the sad state of
feeling in our neighboring city — a frame
of mind which is greatly to be regretted.
There is really no occasion for excitement.
The St. Paul city government have tender
ed, the hospitality of St. Paul to President
Villard and party upon the occasion of the
completion of the Northern Pacific. They
will invite the city government of Minne
apolis to be present and participate. It
will be an affair of municipalities and not
» Washburn affair. That is all.
The New York Sun prefigures the presi
dential result in 1884 not only plausibly,
hopefully, but with irresistible logic, thus:
The main issue in the next presidential elec
tion will be whether we shall have a democratic,
honest, economical administration of the gov
ernment. Can there be any doubt of the result
In & contest waged on such grounds? Let ue
look at the figures.
Gen. Hancock would have been elected if he
had received the 35 votes of New York. He ob
tained only 17 in the north. The rest of his
.155 came. from the south.
There is not the slightest reason for suppos
ing that any stat<\ north or nouth, that sup
ported Hancock in 183»>, \*il' fnil to vote for the
demociatic candidate in If- 4. If we add the
36 votes of New York to the Hancock votes,
this would determine the struggle in favor of
tthe democratic nominee. The six votes of Con
necticut and the 15 "of Indiana would carry lhe
democratic majority up to a handsome figure.
Some doubtful states may also fall into line,
and make the triumph of honesty over profligacy
especially memorable in the history of the
The republican party must go!
Quite a strong current seems to be run
ning through the Republican ranks, just
now, in favor of President Arthur's nom
ination in 1884. Even in Ohio, the lament
ad Garfield's state, where antagonism might
be expected, if any where, the Republican
state convention heartily endorses Mr. Ar
thur and his administration, as eminently
wise, conservative and just. And many a
leading Republican journal the accredited
organ of Republican public opinion, seems
to be striving* to create a sentiment in
favor of Arthur. It (cannot charitably
be believed that this comes from a patrio
tic, bnt rather from a selfish) mercenary
But with all these notes of
preparation, Mr. Arthur is not destined
to have a walk-over triumph to a nomina
Formidable competitors will arise, and
chief among them, even, may be Mr.
Blame. Mr. Arthur has been long trying
to cultivate Virginia through that non
descript political adventurer, Mahone. But
Mr. Mahone does not carry the Republi
can party of Virginia in his hand. He
rode into office on the Readjnster crest, a
movement inspired by an attempted repu
diation of Virginia's public debt, or at
least a portion of it. Mr. Arthur affiliates
With Mahone and his gang of Readjusters
in antagonism to the Republican party of
Mr. Mahone is not a Republican. The
Republicans of Virginia repudiate him.
He is not a Democrat. The Democrats
nave no sympathy with him, or confidence
in him. He is a Readjnster, pure and sim
ple, a partial repudiator of the state debt.
He is tho leader of a repudiation faction,
and it is not a little singular, that tho
President should nurse that faction, and in
so doing turn his back upon the Republi
can partyof the State, when he and his syco
phants are so carefully nursing the Repub
lican party in other States.
At a recent Republican State
convention in Virginia* the convention
expressed a preference, not for Chester A.
Arthur, but for James G. Blame ac a pres
idential candidate in 1884. This brings
Mr. Blame to the front as a candidate for
nomination. Arthur may rely upon Ma
hone to marshal southern delegations in
bis favor, but only to reap disappointment.
The brief administration "of Pres
ident Garfield favored Mahonism
and Mr.^laine, if he did not advise it,'
acquiesced in it. But on the ascession of
Arthur, Mr. Blame denonunced Mahone
and avowed his sympathy with the Repub
lican party of Virginia. Now, the action
of that party, if Mr. Blame acquiesces in
it,' places him in antagonism to Arthur or
any other man, for the nomination next
year. The movement thus inaugurated in
Virginia, will crystalize around him, and
he will be a formidable, and quite likely
a successful competitor for the presiden
tial nomination in the next Republican
national nominating convention.
The Red Caps Beaten at Ball Play by the
i'aciflcs of Omaha.
'Yesterday afternoon the Red Caps of
St. Paul, and the Union Pacifies of Oma
ha, played a game of base ball on the Red
Cap grounds, which resulted in a victory
for the visitors by a score of sto 1. The
game was the closest and most interesting
played here this season, and was witnessed
by the largest number of people that have
attended at any of the this year.
Salisbury, who pitched one season
for the old Red Caps several
years ago, occupied the box for the
visitors and pitched very effectively in
deed. Both pitchers were batted with con
siderable freedom, and good fielding alone
prevented more run-getting. It was a
very pretty game and will be tried over
again this afternoon. The feature of the
Red Caps was the pitching of Hogan, only
seven hits being made off his delivery.
The catching of Barnes was very good, al
though he is credited with two passed balls.
Nettleton did some good work on third,
making good stops, and his throwing to
Lawson was very accurate. Worrick at
short made one of the best stops of the
game. Sibley did good hitting as
did Nettleton, who got m a two baser.
Galvin would have crossed the home plate
on Lawson's safe hit to right field but he
missed it and was shut out by Baker.
Lawson did good work on first base, put
ting out fifteen without an error, receiving
well earned applause. The pitching and
catching of Salisbury and Baker for the
visitors were the features, the Red Caps
getting only six hits. The fine base run
ning of Foley and the hard hitting of the
visitors throughout the game were noticea
ble. Both clubs meet again at 2:30 this
afternoon, and all admirers of the game
will have an opportunity of teeing a game
contest between two very good clubs.
Griggs will appear, and no doubt some
very sharp work will be done. The follow

The War of Laber Against Monopolies and
Not Against Capital.
New Yobk, Aug. 22.— Henry George
was the first witness before the senate
committee on labor and education to-day.
In answer to the question whether he
could present any facts on the subject of
labor, George replied that facts could bet
ter be obtained from the workmen them
selves. There was one general fact, how
ever, that a feeling of extreme dissatisfac
tion exists among the laboring classes;
their condition is not improving with the
increased prosperity of the country and
there is in his opinion no direct conflict
between labor and capital, but between
labor and monopoly. The wages in each
employment is governed by cer
tain circumstances, but they must
all v depend upon the * wages
obtained in the most productive industry
in the country, and here this industry is
agriculture. The wages are higher in the
new countries, because the soil has not
passed so largely into private hands, and
wages will not sink on an average below
what a man can get by applying his labor
to the soil. There is no such thing, he
said, as general over-production, although
there may be a special over-production.
The secret is there is under-production in
something else, and the laborer can not
obtain work and thus get the means of
paying for the articles he needs.
Harmony to he Sought For.
New Yobk, Aug. 22.— this morning's
session of the federation of organized
trade and labor unions of the United
States and Canada, the legislative com
mittee appointed last year at the Cleveland
convention, reported encouraging progress
had been made in the formation of local
unions and in increasing the memberships
of the unions previously formed. The re
port reviews the history of the labor agi
tation in the past year, and efforts will be
made to obtain legislation favorable to
working men. It was recommended that a
prize of $50 be offered for the best essay
on trades unions and strikes, and it was
also suggested that steps be taken to secure
harmony and unanimity among all trades
and labor organizations of the country.
The Great southern Exposition.
Louisville, Ky., Aug. 22.— Southern
exposition has been opened the past weak,
and its records show that 100,000 persons
have entered the building, and this does
not include the attaches. The visitors are
six times more numerous than at Atlanta
in the corresponding period, coming from
all sections of the country, but the°South
is most largely represented, the Eastern
and Northern people reserving their visits
until the cold weather, which in our section
will make the Southern climate more in
viting. Visitors are surprised and delight
ed with the immensity of the progress
made. The hotels are full of people and
the city is alive with sight-seeing strangers.
Dramatic Collapss.
i Special Telegram to the Globe.
Chicago, Aug. 22.— George Edgar
dramatic combination is bursted. If a
collection should be taken up among the
members and every dollar they possessed
shelled out, the lint would contain less than
$25 and that among twenty-five people,
most of them famous in the dramatic
world. The story is a long one. The less
told of it the better.
OnAHAQUA, N. V., Aug. 22.—Competi
tive examinations have been in progress
in various departments this morning. At
10 Dr. Dewell, of Chicago, lectured on the
modes of preserving nerve health. At 11
Joseph Cook, of Boston, lectured to G,OOO
people, on "God in history in our day, or j

tertainment of the Northern Pacific rail
way excursionists are progressing admira
bly, and from present indications the en
ergetic action of our public spirited citi
zen?, their liberality and indefatigable
perseverance, is going to result in the
most elaborate demonstration ever given
in St. Paul.
Another long and animated meeting of
the executive committee and the commit
tee on reception and programme was held
at city hall yesterday morning. In the
absence of Mayor O'Brien, ex-Mayor Rice
presided and the session was with closed
doors. The session was taken up with
discussions and the interchanging of views
as to the best plan to be adopted, and the
work is now fairly under way.
The principal work yesterday consisted
in the appointment of sub-committees to
act with the main committee on recep

gotten up as a souvenir.
The executive committee reported the
following resolutions, which were adopted:
Resolved, That it is fit and proper that

The committee on invitations met in
the mayor's office yesterday afternoon,
and as usual, the doors were closed to re
porters. About 100 different styles of
programmes were inspected and discussed,
and by taking the best features of quite a
number a most elegant card was agreed
upon. These will be printed directly.
A meeting of the committee on German
guests will be held at the mayor's office at
4:30 o'clock this afternoon, and every
member is requested to be present as busi
ness of importance will come up.
The committee on programme and re
ception will meet at 9-30 o'clock this
morning at the council chamber and it is
desirable that all the members shall be
Disgruntled Minneapolis.
Mr. W. D. Washburn seemed to be still
possessed of the idea that there was
to be a joint banquet and telegraphed
Mayor O'Brien yesterday morning,
asking what decision had been
reached. Mayor O'Brien being out of
town he was notified that an answer could
not be given until today
Oar friends at Minneapolis seem to be
rather sad over the fact that Mr. Villard
is to be appropriately entertained at the
eastern terminus of the Northern Pacific.
The following screed from last night's
Journal gives their side and shows how
bad thay feel also:
The gentlemen composing the Minne
apolis committee, while perfectly calm and
good natured, unite in representing their
treatment by the St. Paul committee as
shabby in the extreme. The leading St.
Paul men seemed to be consumed with
envy and hatred of Minneapolis, and old
matters which everybody supposed were
dead and forgotten long ago, were raked
up as an excuse for what the St Paul men
evidently realized was the mean
and contemptible position they had
made up their minds to assume.
Before recapitulating the -esult of the
meeting it will be well to show what
prompted the visit of the Minneapolis
gentlemen. They went down for the pur
pose of carrying out an arrangement pro
posed by the Northern Pacific manage
ment itself, as the following letter from
Mr. Oakes under date of the 10th inst. will
Hon. W. D.Washburn, Minneapolis, Minn. :
My Deae Sib - Your favor of sth received.
In regard to the proposed entertainment of the
gaosts of this company, our idea was that the
cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul should join
in giving the banquet to our guests at Minne
tonka on Monday, September 3, at 6p. m. Mr.
Villard with his German guests will reach St."
Paul on Saturday morning, the Ist of Septem
ber, and he proposes visiting the wo cities on
that day and. then go onto Minnetonka for the
spending the Sunday at that lake. The other
guests will arrive at Minnetonka on Sunday and
will remain over there that .day". On Monday
there will be a second visit to St. Paul and bl in
neapolis, the guests returning that evening to
Minnetonka in time for a banquet at 6p. in.
;.:"■;-; T. f.oakes. "
The Pioneer Press, in its report this
morning, represents the Minneapolis com
mittee as preferring a request that Minne
apolis be allowed ts join ' with St. Paul in
the banquet and other addenda of the re
ception. This representation is false.
The Minneapolis men preferred no such
request. They simply stated what they
came down for, viz: To arrange for Min
neapolis' participation in the reception ac
cording to the general understanding as
expressed in the letter of Mr. Oakes. They
did not need and certainly had no inten
tion of asking any favors of St. Paul. Tha
pioposition of the Minneapolis committee
met with immediate and violent signs of
opposition. Minneapolis was accused of
coming in' at the eleventh hour and seek
ing to detract from the ! benefits to accrue
to St. Paul from an elaborate celebration.
Pat Kelly seemed especially vindictive.
He accused Washburn, Langdon and King
of being hide-bound, of having done much
Jo foster bitterness, and brought up the old
matter of the Minneapolis fair having
been held the same time the state fair was
held in St. Paul, with a view of injuring
the latter city, accused Minneapolis
of snubbing St. Paul in the propo
sition to establish a joint race-track,
and also attempting to appropriate all the
honor and "run" things at the engineers'
banquet at the Hotel Lafayette. These
aspersions were backed up by Ablert
Scheffer, Wm . Lindeke and others, and
the assertion was also made that the gen
tlemen comprising the Minneapolis com
mittee had come down on their own hook
and didn't represent the council, as they
wanted to exclude Mayor Ames and Aid.
Glenn from participation in the affair.
How baseless this assertion is may be
known from the fact that the committee
of the council, represented by the subc-om
mittee at St. Paul yesterday, was appoint
ed .by the council on a written request
preferred by Mayor Ames. The names
of the committee will be found below.
The Minneapolis men, although their
patience was sorely tried by the small aad
contemptible spirit displayed by the St.
Paul committee, and by the insults heaped
upon them, preserved their tempers and
conducted themselves like gentlemen. Col.
King merely expressed his astonishment
at the raking up of old issues that were
supposed to have been dead and buried
long ago, after so many recent expressions
on the part of St. Paul in favor of har
mony between the cities. The final result
of the negotiations was that the St. Paul
committee resolved, in the language of
the P. P., '-to play it alone,'' and to
exclude Minneapolis from participation
in the reception or banquet, but to allow a
few Minneapolis men seats at the table as
How the proposition was received by
Minneapolis, «md how the citizens gen
erally look upon it, is vigorously expressed
in the following
■ r.vi'i .
A Journal reporter found the colonel at
the board of trade room as serene and
smiling as a May morning, and proceeded
at once to business.
R. — I suppose you have read the report
of your committee visit to St. Paul yester
day as published in this morning's P. P.
Col. X. — Oh, yes. I always read that
paper when I can get hold of it. It's a
very readable paper, especially when the
editors get mad or have an attack of dys
pepsia. Yes, I have read the report you
refer to.
Rep. — Well, what have you to say about
Col. X. — Nothing, my dear sir, noth
ing. It speaks plainly enough for itself.
Comment is unnecssary.
Rep.— But did you really say that the
Minneapolis committee "crawled on your
bellies to the St. Paul fellows and got
kicked for your pains?"
Col. X. — Now,.now, my dear fellow, what
a question. Just think of it. Doriluj
Morrison, W. D. Washburn, R. B. Lang
don and my wicked self, "crawling on our
bellies before St. Paul." It would be just
like us, wouldn't it? It's "a way we have,"
ain't it? St. Paul expects it of us, don't
she? Why, even our usually jovial and
rolicksome "broth of a boy"Pat Kelly, who
was out of temper and off his mental
equilibrium yesterday, must have blushed
for . shame when he read that foolish
statement. • -.VV
Rep. — The Pioneer Press says the Min
neapolis delegation came down _ "on their
own hook" and didn't want to go to the
council, as they wished to keep Mayor
Ames, Alderman Glenn and others from
active partici nation in the affair." How is
Col. X. — Well, that statement is a very
proper companion fjiir to the "crawling
on our bellies" story. Of course it is a
very silly and foolish lie, coined, probably
with the hope of exciting jealousy and
making trouble here at home. But like
all such trash, it will tumble into the gut
ter unnoticed.
Rep. — What does the Minneapolis com
mittee propose doing, new that St. Paul
declines to make a joint matter of receiv
ing Mr. Villard and his guests?
Col. X. — The committee will speak for
itself and in its own way. The people of
Minneapolis have always shown themselves
entirely equal to all such occasions and
emergencies. But one thing they wont do.
They will do no foolish, no small thing in
this matter; but will act in a dignified and
becoming manner as befits our city, and
the character of our coming guests, as
well as the important event it is proposed
to celebrate.
R. — Did Mr. Washburn say, as reported
in the P. P. to the St. Paul men, that a re
fusal of the offer of Minneapolis would in
tensify the local bitterness between the
two cities?
Col. X. — He said nothing of the kind.
In the first place, Minneapolis had made
no such offer. The Minneapolis commit
tee went to St. Paul simply to assist in
carrying out the expressed wishes of the
Northern Pacific management. Mr. W.
did remark that a quarrel between the
two cities at this time over the manner of
entertaining these guests, on an occasion
of such great interest to both cities, would,
in his opinion, be about the most hu
miliating spectacle that« could be con
ceived of.
Taking effect Monday, the 27th inst., the
eastern roads expect to begin making di
versions of grain shipments destined to
Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Bal
timore, and ordering the western roads to
deliver such shipments as are consigned to
the Chicago & Grand Trunk railway to the
Lake Shore & Michigan Southern railway,
and those consigned to the Pittsburg, It.
Wayne & Chicago railway to the
Baltimore & Ohio railroad. Shippers,
in order to avoid confusion and expense,
should be careful to have the final destina
tion given on such shipments before de
livery into the eastern yards.
Savannah, Ga., Aug. 22. The suspension
of S. G. Haynes & Brother was made for
the purpose of liquidating accounts, and
will only be temporary, A new partner
ship will be formed by L. Haynes and
John Elton, both members of the old firm.
No new failures to-day. Assets sufficient
to cover all obligations.
The educational institution of the chris
tian brothers and four large business
blocks were destroyed by fire at Port an
Prince on the 7th inst. Loss $250,000.
New Yobk, Aug. 22.— A fire broke out
shortly after 11 this morning in the pack
ing store of the Empire Oil works at Long
Island City. The shop is a brick struc
ture 150 feet by 700 feet and over 1,000
men and boys were employed in the shop,
and the wildest excitement prevailed
among them. The flames spread rapidly
and the shop was soon a seething mass of
flames with which the local fire depart
ment were wholly unable to cope. The
tin shop building, 175 by 250 feet, next
caught which was followed by the barrel
shop of about the same size. The flames
next spread to one of the largest agitators
in the yard containing 50,000 barrels of
oil. The Brookly fire department were
called on for aid and several engines
quickly responded, but, although they
worked hard the flames spread in every
direction. At this hour the Lard Oil
works are in great danger. The damage
already done is estimated at $500,000.
Patrick Cooney, a workman is very badly
burned, and three other workmen are also
injured severely. James Clare was badly
injured by a falling wall. The fire is be
lieved to have been(caused by a workman
accidentally dropping a hot soldering iron
in a keg of lard oil.
The loss by the Long Island oil fire is
set down at $500,000. It was confined to
the company's works.
BIG SAW mill bubned
Winnipeg, Aug. — The extensive saw
mill belonging to the Rainy Lake lumber
company at Rat, Portage was burned yes
terday; loss $350,000. The excitement of
the occasion of the fire was greatly in
creased by a rumor that it was occasioned
by boundary troubles now existing between
Manitoba and Ontario.
New Haven, Conn., Aug. 22. — The fact
that the bodies washed ashore at West
Falmouth, Mass., were dressed in yachting
suits and that on one body was a life pre
server marked C. H. Natham, leads to the
conclusion here that the drowned were two
of the crew of the missing yacht Mystery.
The yachtmen borrowed four life preserv
ers from the steamer C. H. Natham.
Boston, Aug. 22. — The yacht Mystery
which sailed from New London for Nan

Base Ball.
The base ball game today between the
Fargo and Elk River clubs resulted in a
victory for Fargo by a score of 18 to 4.
A good game was played by the Fargo
boys, who only made eight errors though
the day was windy and bad for fielders.
One home run was made, one three base
hit and twelve base hits. The Elk River
boys mado five base hits. G. I. Staples,
of Elk River, acted as umpire and E. E.
Durgin, of Fargo, as scorer. The umpir
ing of the game was very satisfactory.
Is It Sit Mill.
From the following paragraph taken
from the Fargo Republican, curious ideas
might be formed. A statement, as of
fact is made, and a conclusion drawn
which looks like sarcasm. This would re
mind one of the dog that bites and wags
its tail at the same time: •
The presidential party is in close tele
graphic communication with Major Ed
wards. President Arthur knows that just
as long as tho good old man is on deck
the country is safe and the foundations of
our modern civilization are secure. *
The Board of Equalization.
The territorial board of equalization has
concluded its session at Bismarck. The
highest rate of taxation in any county is
three and eight-tenths mill?,, and the low
est two and eight-tenths mills, making the
average just three mills on each dollar val
uation. The total valuation, not includ
ing the railroad lands, is §70,000,000 or
above. The difference in assessment be
tween north and south Dakota is great.
The portion of lax for the payment of th;
interest on all outstanding debts is four
tenths of a mill on the dollar. This in
eludes the interest on the bonds issued
to build and complete nine public build
Ah Important Convention.
The conference called by the mayors of
several different cities of north Dakota, to
take action in regard to the action of
south Dakota in assuming the name of
Dakota for the state, was organized to-day.
Col. W. C. Plummer, of the Fargo Repub
lican, was elected chairman and E. A. Hen
derson, of the Dakota Capital, secretary.
The following preambles and resolutions
were adopted:
Whebeas, The people of Dakota living
south of the forty sixth parallel of latitude
have called a convention of the people of
that section only, to meet at Sioux Falls
on the sth day of September, to consider
the question of statehood; and
Whebeas, The promoters of said con
vention in an aggressive and unauthorized
manner are appropriating the name of
Dakota, which the people north of the
forty-sixth parallel alone have made fa
mous as a trade mark all over the civilized
world; therefore be it
Resolved, That a convention of the citi
zens of that portion of the territory lying
north of the forty-sixth parallel be held at
Fargo on the 12th day of September, to
take definite action in the matter, and to
consider any collateral issues regarding
statehood that may be presented. And
Resolved, That the representation be the
same as at the convention held last year at
Grand Forks, with the addition of two del
egates from every county organized since
then and one delegate from every unor
ganized county in north Dakota.
There were about thirty representative
men present from various portions of the
territory, but what is generally termed
"The Ring" was conspicuously absent.
A resolution was passed which stated
that the sense of the convention was for
division. But the appropriation of the
name would be fought to the bitter end.
The general sentiment was that wheat
from north Dakota had made the territory
a grand name and great fame all over the
civilized world, and for a few cow counties
down in the south part to try to steal the
emigrative reputation would not only re
sult iv a grand kick but it would, if per
sisted in, bring about an organized effort
to defeat their plans. Dakota wheat is a
source of fame, and all comes from north
of the forty-sixth parallel, and south
Dakota seems to be posing in the attitude
of plunderer cf the fame for selfish and
unholy purposes.
The Argus and Republican, of Fargo,
will publish editorials to-morrow
approving of the convention and
the purposes for which it
was called, which is more noticeable as it
is the first time these papers were ever
known to agree on anything.
How They Squirm.
Under the above head the Bismarck
Tribune attempts in away which is ridicu
lous to any fairminded man to explain the
question of bribery and corruption as ap
plied to the governor and his capital com
mission. They only, however, publish in
a sensational form statements which were
made in the Gloee at the time the plans
were accepted. It is not possible at this
time to get the significance of the act of
letting the contracts to the Bismarck man,
and it. does not seem to be known whether
he is a man with a '"jobbing" reputation
or not. The Tribune article is as follows:
When Architect Buffington was in the
city a few days since, he told tho reporter
of the Tribune some interesting facts
which were corroborated yesterday by sev
eral prominent citizens of St. Paul and
Minneapolis. Two youog men competed
for the honors of designing the capitol of
Dakota, They were rather fresh, and, not
understanding the business to a proficiency
which would insure success in the construc
tion of a building of the magnitude and
grandeur required, they failed to realize
the air castle they had. framed in. their
mind's eye. Returning to Minneapolis
and St. Paul they immediately proceeded
to circulate damaging reports about Arch
itect Buffington, the commission aud
govenor. In fact every man
in SfiJi Bismarck of business or
political prominence was included
in their circle of victims. Bat a lapsus
lingui let the cat out of the insecure bag
and placed the squealers in a rather pre
carious position. Here is one remark:
'•We tried every way possible to have ocr
plans accepted. After explaining the vir
tues of our designs and giving the com- j
missioners the necessary amount of taffy, j
we offered $10,000 to have them decide in '
our favor. .'But as that was as much as we
could afford, Baffington must have raised
us, as he was successful." Now, that
sounds well, doesn't it? The very men
who committed fraud by offering bribes,
tarn their toy pistol batteries loose on the
honest men who refused the subsidies and
accuse them of corruption.
Rep. — did they approach with
bribes? .- ;■,'';.'
Gant.— they said that Alex. Mc-
Kenzie was.the "big gun" of the commis
sion, so thhy "tackled" him.
Rep. — What success did they have with
him? '].;:■;-•
Gent. — They said the d- n schemer
wouldn't listen to them, so he must have
received a larger sum from some one else.
"Why," said one of them, "I showed them
the plan of the Albany (N. V.) capitol,
which is one of the finhst in the world and
which has already cost the New York peo
ple $23,000,000, and they refused to listen
to my proposition." In a confidential tone
of voice • the wiley architect continued,
"now, yen know how it is yourself, you see
I tried every scheme imaginable and indi
rectly approached the governor, but he,
too, gave us no satisfaction."
.The reporter was informed that this
vein of argument was pursued by the assail
ants of the commission, which, if published,
would fill every column in the paper. It is
amusing to seek for the consistency of the
case and find that it is the unknown quan
tity. Here the have acknowledged their
own corruption, and produce no evidence
for the support' of the charges made
against the commission.
The fact of matter is, Governor Ord
way and the capital commissioners have, in
every move, worked to the interests of the
territory. No one can doubt that the com
missioners were approached with bribes
by the wealthy architects and contractors
from Chicago, St. Paul, and all the large
cities of the country, but their actions
prove their innocence of the malic
ious charges arid place them in an
honorable position before the public.
Knowing the cost of the Minnesota state
capitol, they accepted its ground plan and
appointed its architect as the seper
vising architect of the Dakota
building to make the desired changes and
keep within the funds at their command.
Then observe the fair, upright manner in
which the contract for construction was
awarded. It is given to a Dakota man,
who, knowing the com of material on tho
Northern Pacific, bids thousands of dollars
less than any of his competitors. The
money was raised in Bismarck and will be
expended in the city and the territory, and
charges of corruption come with very bad
grace from foreign schemers who come
west to prey upon the public funds.
Buffalo, Aug. 23. — Josephine Bochert
was arrested last night charged with pro
curing poison with which she poisoned
her husband. B. chert has on several
occasions been taken ill and it is believed
it was caused by poison being placed in
his food. Mrs. Bochert is possessed of
some property, and has lately been re
ceiving attentions from one of her
Kansas City. Aug. 22. — Marshal Murphy
received Governor Crittenden's letter to
day calling his attention to the report of
an approaching prize fight. The marshal
then visited Independence where Slade is
now stopping. Returning to-nignt he
finds no warrantable evidence of prepara
tion for the prize fight and therefore can
not take official action in the matter.
Pittseueg, Aug . 22. — A Punt Sutawney,
Jefferson county, Pa., special says: Daring
the payment of railroad hands yesterday, a
dispute arose about wages,and culminated
in a riot, in which a Hungarian named
Peter Yedder was killed and two of his
fellow workmen, John Shirnitz and John
Dalower, were shot, and an Irishman
named Tom Kearney unmercifully beaten.
No arrests have been made, but Sheriff
Anderson and a posse are on hand and
will probably make some arrests to-day .
No further trouble is anticipated.
