The Ohio campaign is waxing warm,

chances do not seem to improve with age.
It begins to look as though Mayor Ames
would still be on deck "when this cruel

burn be? ;
The news comes cabled that the wheat
crop of Great Britain this year is the
smallest known, which means more dollars
for Uncle Sam's farmers.
What kind of a welcome does St. Pant
propose to extend to the President when
he reaches here? Perhaps he can be in
duced to stop and see St. Paul spread her
self next Monday. It will be better than
his trip to the Yellowstone.
Our citizens should remember that there
is to be a big procession next Monday,
showing the business of the city, and pre
pare accordingly. The programme will
probably be completed to-day and given
to the public in tomorrow's Globe.

Thebe is a wild rumor afloat that when
Aid . Glenn found, by the official letter of
Mr. Clough, that the Northern Pacific rec
ognized Mayor Ames, he almost regretted
having been bamboozled ty Republican
soft sawder into going back on his old
friend and fellow political worker.
That distingu ; shed Bill Washburn outfit
which came down to St. Paul last week and
got snubbed appears to have sunk out of
sight. When Mr. C lough, representing the
Northern Pacific, has anything to say he
addresses Mayor Ames. So it seems that
the Mayor is on deck despite the machina
tions of the two Bills.
There was a hushed stillness, as it were,
when Mr. Clough's letter was read to the
Minneapolis city council last night, an
nouncing by authority that the Villard
party would come to St. Paul on the
morning of the 3d of Sept. and return to
Minneapolis. Can such things be and
overcome us as a summer cloud.

it is certain the "halter is to be drawn."

What pine land men don't know about
capturing things is hardly worth while
being found out. We can give ex-Gov.
Marshall and H. L. Gordon as references
for the truth or this sentiment. Mayor
Macdonald, of St. Cloud, telegraphed the
governor a few days ago that the lumber
men attending the pine land sale in that
city had subscribed $3,300 for the sufferers
by the Rochester cyclone. The modus
operandi was unique. It appears that
Mayor Macdonald made a telling little
speech to the crowd inviting subscriptions,
and as the result the pine land men
agreed lo cell one of the best seotions
of pine on th 3 list and allow
the mayor to bid it off at the government
minimum price of $1.25 per acre. This
was done, and after the official sale for the
day was closed the mayor put up the sec
tion again with the understanding that
the difference between the $1.25 per acre
and the price paid should go to Roches
ter. The result was that the sec
fnn brought $3,300 above the minimum
government figure at which Mayor Mac
donald had purchased it. In this way our
distinguished friend, Uncle Samuel, was
minus the $3,300, but the cyclone sufferers
were the same amount ahead and the pine
land men had done the handsome thing.
The expansive and growing strength
and power of the Mormons is phenom
enal. Notwithstaading their false as
sumptions of divine revelations, the cor
ruptness of their system, and the immorali
ty of their practices, they grow and
thrive as>n ecclesiastico-political body
politic, and are reaching no inconsidera
ble power and influence in civil affairs.
The reason of this, in a measure,
is that demagogues seize upon the Mor
mon element as a factor to promote their
own selfish and unworthy ends. Much of
the growing strength of the Mormon
dynasty is due to the lax morality largely
prevailing in our outlying frontier terri
tories. Adventurers and roughs and crimi
nals flock to these regions, and are but too
ready to seize upon any means, however
destitute of principle or morality ,to accom
plish their selfish purposes.
The facts of the growth of this corrupt
and corrupting Mormon excrescence are
truly startling. The Mormons not only
now control Utah, their chosen promised
land, but are getting control of other ter
ritories. They are swarming in Montana.
They already bear large sway in Idaho,
where they have 7,000 voters. They have
only to import, and this they can and will
soon do, 5,0 C 0 voters into
Nevada to secure every office and the en
tire legislature. Their* corrupt use of
money, of which they have an abundance,
enables them to purchase any legislature
that they may want, in either of the above
named territories. They are strong and
increasing in Wyoming, and if not checked
by the overthrow and extirpation of this
vital, energizing element, polygamy, they
will soon have full control of every terri
tory, as they now do in Utah.
They are indefatigable in their efforts
and labors. They have some 300 "elders"
out as missionaries, proselyting in this
and foreign lands, notably in England and
Walep. They boast of annual accessions
by this process of over 3,000. At this rate,
unchecked, they will soon occupy all the
fertile lands not ODly in Utah, but in the
other territories. "Gentiles," as they are
called, will hesitate to go among them, and
they will soon grow into a power that may
successfully d«fy the national govern
ment itself. We see what is being
done in the green tree, and, if left alone,
what will be done in the drj i
It is time the people were aroused to
thi3 grcwing, threatening danger. Their
system is a menace not only
to morality, but to civilization
itself. It levels a fatal blow
to all purity of life, and is the antagonism
of every social and domestic virtue. This
increasing band of pseudo-religionists and
impostors must be no longer tolerated; an
immediate and radical check must be
devised. They should be treated as moral
lepers and outlaws, and the ban of civil
and moral outlawry should be pronounced
against them.
The greatest danger in this case is the
general "apathy of the people, who, far
away from their practices, do not realize
their practical enormities as do those who
come in immediate contact with them.
Now, before this evil, wicked system gains
added strength and power and control,
is tha time to cope with and
throttle it, and overthrow it, when
its overthrow will produce the least de
moralizing effect on other interests.
These Mormon leaders, are, in their
practices, criminals to-day in the eye of
the law, as it even now exists, but under
the "forcible feeble" administration of our
government these criminals riot in crime
uncheckedand with brazen defiance. Thelaw
suoh as we have, should be vigorously en
forced, but such other enactments should
be adopted, even an amendment to the
constitution, as has already been suggest
ed by the Globe, as should uproot and
forever abolish the beastly practices of the
blasphemous pretenders who claim to be
the chosen prophets of the Lord. Let the
final struggle come at once. Let it be
quick and decisive.
This Morning's Blaze.
The alarm of fire from box No. 13 at
12:30 o'clock this morning was occasioned
by the discovery of flames bursting from
the barn in the rear of No. 284 West Third
street near Pleasant avenue. The prop
erty was owned and occupied by A. W.
Schawbe, a grocer, and when the fire was
discovered it contained two horses,
a buggy and several sets of
harness. The horses were taken
out uninjured, but the barn and
contents, consisting of a quantity of hay
besides the articles named, were badly
damaged. The department was on hand
promptly and the blaze was soon gotten
under control. The damage is in the
neighborhood of $200; believed to be in
sured: The place is believed to have been
set on fire.
Oscar Wilde's "Vera" Fizzled Out.
New Yobk, Aug. 27.— Oscar Wilde's
"Vera" has ingloriously fizzled out of ex
istence at the end of one week's run. This
fate was foreseen from the first although
Miss Presoott declared the public were
crying for it. Sheridan Shook and A. R .
Casiarian, were met in the lobby of the
Union Square theater. "Just one week
ago," said Casarian, "at this hour people
were fighting at the box office for tickets
and to-day even the chronic deadheads
pass the place without looking in. Wilde
admits the play does not suit the public.
There was a misunderstanding all around.
Wilde did not understand the public, and
the public and critics did not understand
Wilde's play. There was also a misunder
standing as to the extent of Person's finan
cial resources. He was believed to have
plenty of money, and enough to run the
play at a loss until "Vera" could be taken
on the road with a record of a New York
season behind it. Now the prospects of
the play even on the road have not been
improved by this fiasco. It turns out Per
sell can not or will not furnish money to
continue the play.
Don't Want to be Chairman.
Albany, N. V., Aug. 17— John F. Smith,
chairman of the Republican state commit
tee, said to a Journal reporter: "Should I
be a member of the next state committee
I should not possibly, under any circum
stances, consent to act as its chairman, if
I were chosen unanimously to the posi
tion. The time has come when we of the
Republican party must vote either as Re
publicans or Democrats, be it with reason
or without reason. It is a fact plainly
patent that to select me as chairman woHld
bo viewed with distrust.
Kented Wardrobes.
Chicago, Aug. 27.— An attachment
against the property of William Davidson,
manager of the stranded George Edgar
Theatrical company, 1 was taken
out by Richard Hooley 10-day
for $2,300 to cover rent of
the theatre. Tne attachment was served
but no property was found. The ward
robes had simply been rented and belong
ed to New York parties.

Milwaukee, Aug. 27.— A complaint in
the case of L. B. Day & Co., the insolvent
carpet firm of this city, was filed to-day by
W. & J. Sloane, of New York, who demand

$4,000 and $8,000 respectively, with in

Comes to St. Paul at 0 a. m.
The committee of arrangements,banquet
and invitation and the executive commit
tee for the Yillard reception held short
meetings at the city hall yesterday. The
work of the several committees named was
reported as progressing entirely satisfac
tory, and probably all details will be fully
completed by to-morrow evening or next
day at farthest. One result of the meeting
of the committee of arrangements was the
appointment of the following committee
on procession and line of march.

Upon this committee devolves the duty
of planning and largely executing the
grand trades procession, one of the most
important features of the occasion, if it
shall at all fairly represent the industries
of St. Paul. This can only be achieved
through the active and hearty co-operations
of our citizens generally and the greatest
energy on the part of the committee. A
meeting of the committee is called at * the
city hall at 12 m. to-day, to map out a
general plan of operations, and it is ex
pected that not only will every member of
the committee be present, but that such
other citizens as can will favor the com
mittee with their presence, and assist in
perfecting such arrangements as will make
this feature of the reception in every way
creditable to the city.
While the programme to be observed
for the reception and entertainment of
President Villiard and his distinguished
guests is not yet fully completed, as 6aid
above, it may be said the party will arrive
in St. Paul Saturday evening, and go at
once to Hotel Lafayette, where tha Sab
bath will be epent. On Monday the party
will visit St. Paul and Minneapolis, and in
the evening, commencing at 9 o'clock,they
will be banqueted at Hotel Lafayette as
thef«ests of the city of St. Paul. The
gei,*ral movements of the visitors Mon
day, is outlined in the following letter ad
dressed to Mayor Ames, of Minneapolis,
and Mayor O'Brien, of St. Paul, by Hon.
W. P. Clough, attorney of the Northern
Pacific road, who is in charge of the ar
rangements for the entertainment of the
visitors on the part of the company:
St. Paul, Aug. 27.— Dear Sir: I have the
honor to announce by authority that the move
ments of the Northern Pacific opening party on

for Hotel Lafayette, arriving tt»«re about 8 p.m.
and get in readiness v tmm me possible there
after to participate in the festivities of the
evening at that place. Yours respectfully,
W. P. Clough.
Under the arrangements perfected by
the St. Paul committee the banquet will
commence promptly at 9 o'clock and con
tinue until all are surfeited, it being the
determination of the committee in charge
to have it greatly surpass anything of the
kind ever before given in this sec
tion. The banqueters will be
seated by numbers, each member of
the party having a3 his companion
a resident of the city or guest of the city
in attendance. Upon conclusion of the
banquet, probably about 3 a. m., the party
will leave on their journey across the con
For the occasion the principal streets of
the city will be handsomely decorated, two
mammoth arches being a feature for
which two car load 3of evergreens
have been secured. It is expected that
the citizens will individually assist in giv
ing the city a gala-day appearance, by
properly decorating their places of busi
ness and residences.
A meeting of the general committee
will be held in the city hall at 9 :30 a. m,
Wadnesday, at which it is expected there
will be a full attendance.

New Yobk, Aug. 27.— The steamship
Gallia, of the Cunard line, will arrive at
the dock early in the morning bringing
among the passengers the distinguished

The Rhea £ngageinent To-Xight.
The M'lle Rhea company, which openß
an engagement at the Opera house to
night, should be accorded an enthusiastic
reception, as, no doubt, a highly finished
and eminently satisfactory performance
will be given. The opining performance
will be "Adrienne," a drama which affords
fine scape for the histrionic and emotional
powers of M'lle Rhea who will appear in
the title role. It has been some time
since a St. Paul audience has been prom
ised co admirable a dramatio treat and it
rarely happens indeed that the oppor
tunity ocean to witness so com-
petent &!• actress as M'lle Rhea. It
is understood that her support is unu
sually even, and an entertainment of rare
marit m*j be expected. In order to accom
modate the am element patrons of Minne
apolis, Mannger Scott has arranged for a
special return train to that city after the
performance, in order that those wishing
to see the initial performance of Rhea
may feel assured of reaching home in
good time.
The inhabitants were on the watch all
the afternoon for the fearful whirling

allayed the real cycione came upon them
from another direction.

A Statement to the Public.
Rochesteb, Minn., Aug. 24, 1883. — On
the evening of August 21, a terrific cyclone
struck our city, completely demolishing
135 dwellings and totally destroying their
contents. A large number of others were
unroofed and otherwise damaged. In the
city, nineteen persons were killed, (this is
strictly accurate) and about 100 wounded,
several of them fatally. The ruined houses
were nearly all owned and occupied by
mechanics and laborers, who have lost
everything they had in the world except
the clothing upon their persons and the
naked lots . In many cases, the heads of
families are injured. The cyclone entered
the county at its western border, and in its
course destroyed the crops and buildings
on about forty farms. Others lying con
tiguous were damaged, and five persons
were killed outside the city. The
relief committee has a detailed list
of 124 families, in the city alone, en
tirely destitute. We appeal to the public
for aid. The leading business men of the
city are all heavy losers, and cannot, there
fore, do as much for the sufferers as they
would wish. They have, however, con
tributed liberally. None of the public
buildings have escaped damage. One
school building is destroyed, the court
house is unroofed, the churches are seri
onsly injured, one of them — the Methodist
— demolished; the elevators and ware
houses are all wholly or partially in ruins.
Provisions are plentiful. Money, cloth
ing and carpenters are needed; $100,000
expended in tools, lumber, etc., for the
penniless would hardly put them on their
feet sufficiently to enable them to help
themselves." All contributions are placed
in the hands of a thoroughly organized
committee of twenty-one citizens, and
may be forwarded to the undersigned.
S. Whitten, Mayor.
Editcrs of newspapers will please copy.
Cyclone yotes.
The Duluth subscription for the cyclone
sufferers is $200, which was placed in the
hands of the governor.
Robert Taylor, chairman of the relief
committee of Dodge county, has drawn on
Gov. Hubbard for $500.
Most of the men in the Rochester hospi
tal seemed to be most severely injured in
the spine and suffered excruciating tor
tures therefrom.
Men who saw the Cole flouring mill
struck by the cyclone wave said that
when it left the building it resembled a
cloud of fine gunpowder.
Many of those who had their residences
swept off by the cyclone in Rochester were
unable to tell where their houses stood and
their premises were located.
O. P. Whitcomb. who had his farm and
residence swept clean by the cyclone, had
forty acres of wheat in stack swept from
the field in which it stood, leaving not a
single straw.
Mr. Chamberlain south of Dodge
of Dodge Center had a herd of cattle lifted
from the ground in the storm and several
in falling stuck their horns in the ground
and broke them off.
At Byron and Salem before the cyclone
struck those places the air was filled with
lumber, clothing, etc., which were being
propelled toward the storm cloud as if
drawn thither by suction.
Two men who were with Mr. Cole ran to
a place of safety in the mill basement,and
supposed he was coming there with
them. Their theory is that he was blown
out of the building into the air.
An old country iron box, inclosing a
smaller iron box, in which was $160, both
being locked, were found wrenche } open
on the site of the house of Thomas J. Leon
which was demolished at Salem, while 4
$100 greenback laid on the ground near
them, which singularly the cyclone refused
to take.
Gov. Hubbard opened a subscription
paper for the cyclone sufferers at the state
house yesterday to be circulated in the
several departments therein, heading it
with $100 himself. It will be completed
to-day, as quite a number of the state o •
ficers and employes were absent from the
city yesterday.
A Big Storm at JParibault.
[ Special Telegram to the Globe. ]
Fabibault, Minn., Aug. 27. — This place
was visited by a terrific thunder storm this
morning at 4 o'clock. The fire engine
house was struck by lightning and set on
fire, but was extinguished by hard work.
Drs. Rose and Wood's block was struck. The
lightning entered their offices destroying
the library and generally smashing up
things. Loss nominal in both cases. Ed.
Oliver's barn, of Cannon City, was destroy
ed and four horses killed. Considerable
grain and stock was burned east of here .
The leading citizens of this place meet
the city council to-night to raise means to
assist Rochester.

The Mandan Pioneer has the following
to say concerning the convention, which
will meet at Fargo the 12th prox.:
At the delegate convention, which is to be held
at Fargo on Sept. 12, for the purpose of discus
sing the division and cognate questioas, Morton
county is allowed six delegates. The unorgan
ized counties west of Mandan are entitled t®
one delegate each. Stark county may 6end two.
It will be well that our citizens take note of this
convention. We, on this side of the river, will
join with the"rest of north Dakota in prote3ting
against the filching of the name of Dakota by
the south. But the West Missouri country
wants to be represented by men who will call
out in nnmistaken toDes for division on the
river. Let our eastern friends be taught that
on this side of the river there is a vast amount
of enthusiasm in a good cause.
The enthusiasm might a? well be saved.
The territory will be divided on the forty
sixth parallel if it is divided at all, and
the efforts of the Bismarck jobbing syndi
cate and the Mandan pioneer management
might just as well hang up their fiddle.
All their strings are broken or will be soon.
The people will control the convention,
and the people desire division on the
above named line. Although admission
may not be accomplished at present, it iB.
very probable that the states of North
Dakota and South Dakota will eventuate
from the present territory.

Extensive p reparations are being made
for the reception of the Villard party.
Scores of committees and hundreds of
hands are managing and manufacturing
ornaments, and will assist in beautifying 1
the grand arch and surroundings.
