Over a month ago the Globe reduced its pubsoription price to eight dollars per y our tor seven copies delivered by carrier, or seventy-five cents per month if paid monthly. For six iseueap6r week, by mail, (Sun day edition omitted) the rate is SIX DOL LARS PER YB.\R, or seventy cents per month if paid monthly. /I Thia sweeping reduction was made over a month ago, and the Globe invites inspection and criticism, as to whether it has not during the past month been made a botter paper in all depart ments than before. This demonstrates the quality of the paper is being incrsa.eed while the subscription price has been de creased. This improvement will - bo still more marked the coming month, when our new prees, which has already reached tha city is in running order and we are thus enabled to carry out mechanical de tails which have hitherto been impossible. The Globe motto is to make it the best paper in St. Paul, and supply it at the lowest possible price. Of course the Gloee anticipated havirg feeble , imitations, but while it moves onward and upward, they will remain feeble imitations still. As France has. decidad to receive no more American meats, there ought to be oholer enough in Uncle Sam's domains .to abstain from creating any - demand for French wines. A little reciprocity of that sort would prove useful. •—- ■ .< ■ The Philadelphia ; Press, Republican as it is, is constrained to say: The appointment of Andraw G. Curtin to the Chairmanship o* the House Committee on Foreign Affairs means that waen there is any thing to be done with the British lion the ani mal will be approached from the front and not from tho rear. The tail-twisters must fall hick. Tub position of Mr. Payne as a candi date for the Senate in Ohio is regarded so formidable by Pendleton, Ward and Con verse that they have decided to throw all' their force into a pool with the intent to beat Payne. The scheme has but a small chance of succeeding. The R3publicin factious in St. Louis, "the odiums" and tha "silk stockings," have bariid the hatchet, and having cho sen Chadaeey I. Filley a3 general mana ger of ths new combination, are making ready to "gobble" the city offices at the ; next election. The union, thus cemented upon the basis of the spoils, is expected to make Mr. Filley's new party numerically stronger'than the Democrats. We shall see. • ':.... ,. Secbbtabt Chandleb is reported as be ing entirely satisfied with Mr. Carlisle's naval oommittee, and with Mr. Cox he is especially well pleased "as a thoroughly publio spirited legislator, who believes in keeping pace with the march of events, and who will devote himself to studying the needs of the country for a navy and providing the means for its construction." The secretary's happiness promises to bo of a transitory nature, when Mr. Cox . and - his oommittee get at work. A few days ago N. P. : Banks was reap pointed Marshal of Massachusetts. -He has held the office for four years, and de pends upon his salary for his living, as be is very poor, broken, and old now.

The i 'Jedgo" declare? in a recent lecture that i tho man who neglects his political duties : is the most dangerous man in the commu- ( nity —mora dangerous than a thief or : pick-pocket. Now the prevailing impres- , sion is that the man in politics in these ', days is the dangerous combination, if the note book of Oakes Ames, and the crisp unvarnished correspondence, of Hunting ton count for anything. If men of the Judge'sjpolitical stripe attend to their "po litical duties" any more than they have for twenty years, the "dangerous men" in the community will be all corraled and with a majority of the "dangerous" ele ment in office, the brag may be like Billy Wilson's about his Zouaves when leaving New York: "There won't be a thief nor a pick pocket in the city for the next twen ty-four hours." -; A WOMANLY QUEEN. . No matter how many disparaging thing3 are written of the Queen of England; no matter how many lampoons in Beaton's annual or almanac are leveled at her, and all the established order of things under her sway; no matter how many disloyal Dilkes have fulminated and agitated against the measures of her reign; no matter that Lady Bnlwer Lytton described her majesty as a "little selfish, 1 sensuous," inane and carnal queen who would not care if all her subjects were equally dis tributed in madhouses or pounded in mor tars;" no matter tor all this and more too. Victoria has the grand traits of courage ' and loyalty. She is the most steadfast of i friends. She never forgets any one to . whom she has once accorded personal in terest and esteem. High and low attest this royal sincerity of adherence. Eugenia, dethroned, wid . owed, exiled and childless, is affectionately recognized by the queen, and Jehn - Brown will be commemorated for many a long ) year to come, as an example of her nn i ohanging appreciation and affectionate re gard.

V , On December 9, the Pioneer Press had forty columnB of Minneapolis advertising and twenty-six columns of St. Paul and eastern advertising. On the same date the Globe had thirty six columns of St. Paul advertising and three quartern of a column of Minneapolis advertising. This data shows, relatively, about tha re spective interests of the two papers, in the respective cities. The Pioneer Press is a Minneapolis sheet which is simply printed in St. Paul as a ojuvenienoe, because it cannot use its Associated Press privileges outside of St. Paul. That is the only tie that ha3 pr6vent«d that sheet from moving bodily to Minneapolis where its affections and business lies. It does not dare to publish an annual review of the business of St. Paul, suoh as is issued by the Globe on the 31st of each December, but cuts such matters up into a series of articles, and every time it pub lishes an article upon the business of St. Paul, the same issue contains a huge puff for Minneapolis, so that the people of St. Paul can never send one of those papers ; abroad without also giving equal prominence to another city. It comes with ill graos for such a sheet to assume to interfere in St.' Paul munici pal affairs and pretend to be animated by a desire to advanoe the looal interests of toe oity. The P. P's. interests are all hostile to St. Paul, and anything whioh will directly or indirectly damage the city, is what it advocates. On the 4th of September the Pioneer Press published reports of the Northern Pacific celebra tion in the two cities and gave the palm entirely to Minneapolis. ' This is merely a sample of its uniform course. The position of the Globs is too well understood to need to be repeated. It is an out and out St. Paul paper with no di vided heart or interests. The Globe in vites the citizens of St.. Paul to consider the character' and mer its of the only St. Paul . morning paper whioh they have, and govern them selves accordingly. The better the sup port . accorded the Globe, the better will the only St. Paul morning paper be made. The publishers expect, for. many years to come, to expend every dollar: of income in adding : to ■ , : and strengthening the Globb as a newspaper. As conaeqaence, the business which St. Paul extends to the Globb is simply de voted to the advancement and upbuilding of the oity. A GREAT OFPORTWNITY. The Hon. S. S. Cox, it is reported,' is much disappointed at being made chair man of the oommittee on naval affairs. It is said that he thinks that his twenty-two years of service in the house' ought to have secured him a higher place at ; the hands of the: Democratic .speaker.' His ambition would have been filled by being made ohairman of the Foreign Affairs committee. Bat there is an ; opportunity before . Mr. Cox, and he can if he chooses make his com mittee -.'■-• more important and use ful than the . Foreign Affairs, or any other oommittee, except only the Ways and Means and Appropriations. In the last House, over whioh Mr. Blaine presided as speaker, a great struggle pre vailed in regard to .the committees. Tha pressure upon Mr. Blaine was such that he was obliged to hide himself ■ absolutely. There were bo many men to be provided for, that when the : committees were an nounced, there was an outcry of well nigh universal ; disappointment., Among those whose wishes were not gratified was Gen;; THE ST.

He had been looking for something better even than that, and his pride was greatly touched by being (taken from the military committee, then .very conspicuous, and placed at the head of the / committee on : Banking and Carre»cy, at that time a minor committee, stationed in a small room, dimly lighted and meanly appointed, in the lower re gions of the capitol. The committee had no clerk and only a meager allowance of stationery. There was no appeal from the decision of the speaker, and General Gar field accepted the situation with tho re solve to make hi3 committee a leading one, end he did it. ; The Military commit tee sank out of sight, and the chairman of thf; Committee on Banking and.

Mas. O'Dohnbll, whose husband was exe cuted in London for the shooting of Carey, re turned from England te her home in Philadel phia, where she resides with her brother-in-law, : John Maginly, on Christmas day. • Mrs. O'Don nell states that after her husband's arrest it : was intimated to her that her testimony . would be wanted at the trial. ' After waiting three weeks, and no summons coming fer her, she set out for England acoompanied by . her - brother-in-law. She reached Liverpool December 5th, only to learn that she had arrived too late. She re paired to London, however, where she remained until all hope of a respite or of mediation was gone. Mrs; O'Donnell says sho did not see her' husband as he was under the influence of others, absolutely. "I went to help him if passible," she said, "burying all recolleetioas of the past, but I had no desire to encounter the woman for whom ha deserted me." She says she does not know why her testimony was not secured for ; the defense, that she believes she '''-was deceived. and - now regrets she was over l«d to believe she was wanted, as it cost her a great deal of sorrow. The devo tion of this poor woman, a deserted wife, is vory • touching, and more than is recited above she declined to say, or to give a glimpse of what her testimony might have been had she been sum monad . Having gor-e to England and been re fused an audience by her husband,-.- in words of pathetic grief she said, "I did tot wait until the end, I could not boar it." A.

Shorwin at Albany to two yeirs in the penitentiary for con tempt of court, iu not obeying a subpeona, was quite a surprising usa of judicial authority. It transpires however, that the sentence was net so •much a penalty for contempt of court, as a punishment-'for a crime the judge believed Sherwin to bo guilty ef, but for which be , was not on trial and could not havo b«sen convicted if he had been. Tha case wherein Mr. Sherwin failed to testify was the trial Charles H. Phelps, a defaulter ia $210,000 in tha New York state treasurer's of fice. Matters camo at the trial that induced the belief that Phelps had been too good to Mb friends and hai net profited by the abstraction as much as others. Upon his dsathbed Phelps stated that Sherwin got $120,000 of the money he was short, and it was this point in the case, tkat brought about the heavy, sentence for con tempt et court, as a partial penalty ; for. an ua preven crime.

For weeks the Minneapolis paper pub lished in St. Paul, has been asserting over and over again till everybody has b^oome tired of hearing it,~that St. Paul was -to have a base ball club, and was going into the Northwestern league; that parties were here in the city who would subscribe the necessary money for the clnb; that ' a *'- competent manager was in town ready to take hold of the ' matte and organize the club. It is time the bub ble ; was pricked. There is to be no pro fessional nine in St. Paul during the year 1884, and there has not been the least show for such a club ' during the last five years, and all. the talk to the effect that ' there '.' has been any cbance for such a club for the year 1884,'' is merely werds . re peated ever for show and private amuse ment with a view of deceiving people oat. side. -There is a crowd of people in St. Paul who six or seven years ago secured grounds, erected stands and,; fence se cured a club from tho four quartern of the globe, and generally put large sums of ; money into . the project, of having" a ;> ofessionai nine. Well, we had one. For a lew weeics that club played some very fine games, games that would bo satisfactory any where, and such as would be regarded among the best league clubs as .very superior. Had the club , held up to thia standard or anywhere near it, there would less ba trouble to organize a base ball stock association here in . St. Paul now than there is. tut the high priced gentlemen who composed that club known a3 the St. Paul "Bed Caps," instead of attending, to their busi ness and working to earn the money they were paid, fell to drinking-, and nightly frequented the saloons. '■'. Of course, the next day they went upon the ■ ball ground with aching bead.?, disordered stomachs and feverish limbs. Aa might have been expected their playing became very unsat isfactory indeed, and finally disgusting to all lovers of the game. The attendance decreased to Kothing, and the "-national" game was gone up in St. Paul. Now it need not surprise any one if the people of St. Paul are careful not to get bit the sec ond time. They nad enough I of the pro fessional base ball player to lust them a very long time, and theywill be very cau tious about putting more money into Ihe game.. ; All .; the . windy brag ging; of ; the Minneapolis paper referred to will not organize a \ club in St. Paul. It takes money, and where iB that money? .' Go ask Col.V Allen. Speak with i Robert A. Smith, and tell us in mournful strains what they think about base bell. The Milwaukee Sentinel ,, has the following ! upon the great national game: ."..'- The movement to establish a profession- j al clnb in Milwaukee : with a membership in the Northwestern league, seems to have some strong support. As soon as the as sociation takes action, which will be on the j 9th of Janaary, a canvass of the business men to put the enterprise on a financial footing will be begun. v. Nothing is definitely 'known regarding the local players : to be selected, although' it is quite likely that several of; the Maple Leaf may be negotiated with. If a club is established, it is expected that the games will attract a good '.. many lovers of base- ball from surrounding towns. Gunning's agreement to ; play with the Chicago Unions next season was obtained by false pretenses, it being represented to him that his old friend Buffinton was to pitch for the club and he was to catch.

No sooner does a man resign than some knowing papers begin to locate him in some other position. Alter .General Haupt resigned the management of the Northern . Pacific road, men ail over the - country were selected by a great variety of papers to 'fill the vacant position; . Men rose up all over tho country and declined without being asked. - When Mr. H. C. - Davis resigned his position as ticket agent of the St. Paul & Manitoba road," these knowing \ fellows put -him at the head of a .passenger pool in St. Paul, made up of tha Chio3go, Mil waukee & St.: Paul, and Omaha and the Albert Lea route. Now that Mr. Barnes has stepped out of the Northern Pacific road these same knowing fellows have consolidated the ticket and passenger de partments of the Northern Pacific and placed Mr. H. C. Davis in charge of the same. This shows how muoh they know about the matter. If they can't get him into one place they think they can into an other, and so it goes all the time. Mr. Barnes, it i3 expected, now that he haa severed . his connec tion with the Northern Pacifio road, will be pioked up and set apart .for any road that is in want of a good man, and no doubt the knowing ones will find a place for him. There 13 nothing like knowing all about it. ;:''AA ' Surveying a Dine to Des Moines.

' A Railway in ViffieulHet. j Boston, Jan. 1.—The New York ; & New England railroad has received a dispatch I from President ': Clark, announcing that j the property of the company will be ; plaosd in the bauds of a receiver. President Clark, yesterday afternoon ! sent oat notices of a directors' meeting ! at Hartford last night when 6even direct - | ors attended. • -It'was learned that the par j pers necessary for the application of the ; United States circuit court for a tempor ; ary receiver had been previously prepared i and brought to Hartford. Clark, and the ' other gentlemen favorable to a receiver ! ship, agreed that the best interests of the ; road demanded that it be immediately ! placed in the hands of a receiver and . that j the company, by allowing its coupons on' j its first mortgage bonds . to be used S3 j collateral for money advanced to pay' them, .virtually defaulted -its i interest, and that attachment by the old creditors was liable to be placed on. th i j road or the equipment at any point, and j thereby hamper its operations. Two only : of the seven directors present opposed the action. These two asserted that the whole affair had the appearance of .the "spring ing cf a trap," and that more time should be given for the consideration of bo im portant a matter, s and that the fall board of directors should have an opportunity to vote on the question. Finally it was decided, by five to two, to apply for a receiver. . Close to midnight the directors entered the residence of Judge Chapman, of the United States cir cuit eourt, who opened court, and after hearing the arguments granted the peti tion ana Clark was made receiver. Soon after the directors returned to Boston an application -was made to Judge Nelson, of the Cnitad States court, this district, for a decree conformatory of that issued by Judge Chapman. He refused to grant it withent a fall hearing, and he set four this afternoon . for a ' . publio hearing.' Clark a&ya the meeting at Hartford was duly called in accordance with. the power v«Bted in him, and everything thereat was perfectly regular. He says the actual in-, debtedness is something over $1,250,600 and the assets given in the annual report of the directors have dwindled upon a bloee examination, and a large amount of floating iebi is now pressing for a settle ment. A meeting of the directors is called for next Monday, when it is very, possible a vote, calling a special meeting of the stockholders, will be passed. Clark has resigned the presidency of the company. . Trunk Line Representation.
