Shipping Hill to Come Up Soon—Mlmt tit* Bonded Whisky JUen Hope For-Seri ous Charges 4'jaiu/tt Gen- Dninout, Su 2>errlsin(i Inspector of Steamboats. [Special Tologram to the Globe. 1 Washington, Jan. —Mr. Springer will introduce to-morrow a resolution asking the president, if not incompatible with public interest*, for all information re garding Crook's expedition into Mexico last year, and correspondence, if any, be t^e.7l our own and tha Mexican govern ment in regard to it. Gen. Crook stated in his report last fall that in a pre vious oamp'iiga against the Apaches, he v.ms on tho point of administering severe cha-lMcment on them when ho was stopped' by the negotiation of a treaty wit: the Am ",he3, in accordance with which they.wei.) nut on a reservation clcee to thi Mexico frontier. Tha provision of that; traaty ho had never succeeded it- learning, bat tlis Apaches understood that the American government agreed cot to interfere with their ids into Mexico, pro vidi-yl they made no raids into our own ter rirory. Mr. Springer's resolution will in clude a request for information about this alleged misundoritaudiug with the Apaches. BONDED WHISKY. 1 All that the friends of the bonded whis ky extension bill now ask or hope for is that the committee oa ways and means shall report tha bill to the house without any recommendation. It has been ascer tained that a majority of the committee are opposed to extending the bonded period, and while it would be bettor to have a report, the principal object i 3 to get the bill out of the committee so that it may be freely discussed. Its patrons havo a hope that tho house will be per suaded that the relief desired by those who wonld or have lions on whisky in bond ought to be granted for the benefit of the general public as well as of the interests directly involved. INTEE-STATE OOMMEBCE. The hearing of oral arguments against int6r-sliite commerce legislation has been closed by order of the house commerce committee, and in answer to numerous applications from attorneys of railroad corporations for a hearing, notices have been sent thai they may file written arguments. The committee will now proceed to hear persons who wi*h to say something on tha other side of the question. FOiiFEITKD LVND GEANTS. Tiiß public land^-'ornmittee is working alm^3t day and night to get into proper shape their bills for the forfeiture of rail road land grants. Yesterday they spent four hours hearing a^nmants on the On tanagon grant, uud it is understood that they find this cisc presents tha most knotty problems of law that they have had to daal with. It is probable that the com mitttee will recommend the forfeiture of the ,;rant and leave settlers to establish their rights in the courts. THE SHIPPING BILL. After a few hundred bills and resolu tions have been introduced to-morrow the house will take up the shipping bill unless its attention should ba diverted by some proposition not now anticipated. A ma jority of the shipping oommittees of both houses ara not in favor of free ships, and it is probable that whatever legisla tion may emanate from these committees will be directed to other propos? iona for the benefit of American shipping interest. GOING TO DEFEND HIMSELF. Gen. Dacnont, supervising inspector I general of the steamboat service, ispra- I paring a reply to the charges of Mr. Tower, late inspector at New York, of inoompefcenoy and mismanagement. It is slid at the treasury that some of the charges against Gen. Dumont were in vestigated long ago and proven to be with out foundation, and others are scarcely \ worth considering. The cause of the at-1 tack on Gen. Dnniont is to be found in ] the fact that Mr. Tower was dismissed from office by the secretary of the treas ury by the advice of Dumont, upon clear proof that ha had not properly discharged the duties of his office, and had been grossly, persistently and impertinently insubordinate. I Western Associated Press.*} Washington, Jan. 27.—The two or three appropriation bills promised three weeks ago have not yet made their appearance in the house, in fact, are not yet out of the hands of the sub committee of the com mittee on appropriations. The shipping bill, recently reported from the selec. committee on shipping, is perhaps the most important measure be fore the house, and it is expected a motion will be made by Mr. Slocum to-morrow to proceed with its consideration in commit tee of the whole. The reports from the committee on ac counts, in relation to the removal of em ployes of the house at the close of the last congress, are expected to be made on Wed nesday. The Fitz John Porter discussion will be resumed «n Friday. The Northern Pacific railroad peo ie will bo heard in defense of their land grants by the house committed on public lands on Tuesday and the en me day the committee will be addressed by Judge Dillon of the Union Pacific, and othexa, in opposition to the proposition to compel the road to pay the cost of surveying and selecting laa<ls, thu3 making Janda taxable by the state. NEW HOMESTEAD AOT. The senate committee on public lands will probably recommend a number of radical changes in the homestead law. Among them, it is proposed to give a homestead claimant one year from the date of entering the land to establish a resi dence thereon, requiring, however, in the meantime, that he shall break and prepare for cultivation a given area, and to establish in good faith his professions. Under the existing laws, he is required to go upon the claim and make it his home within six months of the date of entry. It is farther proposed to admit homestead claims to final proof and patent, only at the end of seven years from the date of entry, the present term being five years. Baity It i 3 agreed, that tc an honest claimant, who farms land for his own use, it is of little coteequence when he receives his patent, since the entry to the land% con firms him in every right, but selling it, which is secured by patent. As a new fea ture of the homestead law and a substitute for the timber culture law ia contempla tion, to require within the first four or five years from the date of entry, that the settler shall plant a specified small area of land in trees, hav ing previously taken such eteps necessary to secure their thrifty growth, as now re quired by the timber culture act, this re quirement being applicable, of course, only to treelee6 regiocs. The reason for jjraetiag a portion of the timber culture law upon the homestead law is found in the faot that under the former the land usually fell into the hand 3of non residents who had no interest in the caltivation of trees, and whose steps to that end were merely sufficient, under the law, to hold the land until it can be sold to advantage. Bat little attention has yet been given to the pre-emption law, but there is better reason ftr expecting radical amendments than its re peal. The chief amendments suggested in the commitlee, look to tha prevention of speculation by requiring that ralin quiehmeuts shall not be accept -A by the iocal oilic rs, and that, when ecoepted by the commissioner, the land sh-ill be ijpen fcr entry by the first applicanf, awl two years of actual residence shall precede the purchase of the land. AWAED AT THE FISHERIES' EXHIBITION The official list of tae jury awards at the London fisheries exhibition, shows 183 gold, 271 eiiver, and 199 bronze medals, acd 80 diplomas of honor awarued to for eign and colonial governments. The United States heads the list with 49 gold, 47 eiiver, and 29 bronze medal?, and 24 di plomas, equal to more than one-fifth of the entire number awarded. A spesiai feature in the American awards is the large percentage of gold medals received, being nearly double those of any other country and ooastitutiDg more than one-fourth of the entire number. Norway ranks second with twenty-eight gold medals, Sweden third with twenty-seven and Canada fourth with seventeen. In addition to the medals and diplomas seven special money prizes were awarded to American exhibitors, and a large number of awards were given to English agents for American products ex hibited by them in the English depart ment. A BETKAYEK COBRALLED. Losey, Who Eloped with Laura Wilkinson from Sycamore, HI., Captured—What He Says for Himself. [Special Telegram to the Globe- ] Sycamoee, 111., Jan. 27.— Geo. W. Losey the crook who eloped with Laura Wilkin son, the school girl of thi3 plaoa, has made a fall confession of his cussedness at Codar Rapids, wheie he was fined $100 and costs on charge of ''obtaining food and lodging with intention of defrauding." In default of payment he was sent to jail for thirty days. He says that two years ago the coming March he left home in Crookston, Minn., went to Chicago and was employed as a det9otive with the West Divi sion Street Car company. Then he wa3 in the employ of N. B. Holden, on State street, in the boot and shoe business. After that he worked for R. L. Polk & Co., canvassing Illinois for their state directo ry. He went out on the Chicago <fc North western railroad, canvassing all the towns between Geneva and Sterling. His salary was $12 a week and ten per cent, of the orders. That didn't pay very well, so he added forgery to bis accomplishments, and sent in bogus orders, deducting his com mission on them. He came here in May and met Lama Wilkinson, and was at her home frequently. He was taken sick there in August and remained there until December. She nursed him; the flame of love was kindled, and they v^re engaged to be married. In December he went to Chicago for about ten dayp, got nearly $50 from his brother, telegraphed Laura to meet him at Eastland, which she did, told her what he had done, and asked her if she wished to gu with him, to which she answered affirmatively. He expected, of oourse, that Laura would bring her money with her and pay her part of the expense of the excursion, but somehow she didn't. He says he intends to mary her, accuses her of doing most of courting, and is afraid he will bo mobbed when he is brought here. Ht says he won't be 19 lor a month vet, but expects to be "sent down" for a year or so; owns up to being a '•btij-d citizen;" claims that some of his tils are the genuine article, and that some were made for the occasion. He isn't particularly anxious to have Laura's brother shoot him, for he thinks he's burdened enongh with other cares without having that on his mind. OUR RESERVOIR SYSTEM. The Hardship it Entails Upoa the Indians —Their Rice Fields Destroyed and Their Timber Appropriated. [Special Telegram to the Globe.l . Philadelphia, Jan. 27.—The Press says: "The accumulation of water near the head waters of the Mississippi by the construc tion of dams may be good for navigation but it means confiscation for those whose lands are flooaed. The unfortunate vic tims of this experiment at internal im provement are Ctrippewa Indians who have been Christianized and civilized. Bishop Whippie. of Minnesota, writes to the Churchman that at White Earth, Minn., some fitty square mile 3of Indian land will be Hooded by these dams. There are about 1,500 Indians living there, who will be driven out of their fields from which they now raise say $10,000 worth of wild rice every year, witl be rendered useless to them. Their fields wi)l be broken up and the sugar camps destroyed. Already 2,000,00U or 3,000,000 of feet of pine have been cut from this Indian land to build the dams. A commission has made an award which takes no account of tens of acres of land overflowed, and ouly gives tho Indi&ns moderate compen sation for their other losses The attorney general of tho United States decided at the outset that no one had any right to overflow auy part of an Indian xeserve, or take from it any material or timber for dams. While we trust we are not on the threshhold of another interminable Ponoa controversy, we join heartily in the earnest hope of the bishop of Minnesota that our rulers may ba induced to deal righteously with the scattered remnant of the Indian nation. Pay Rolls Reduced. Springfield, Mass., Jan. 27. —The Bos ton & Albany Railroad company announces a reduction of twenty-five per cent, in the pay roils of all the shops, by discharging five per cent, of the employes and reduc ing iha hours of the remainder from ten to eight a day. Dnll freight business is assigned as the cause. ST. PAUL, MINK, MONDA* MORNING JANUARY 28, 1881. STOCK JOBBERY. HOW OES WERE BfA.DK TO DO SER- TICE ON WALL STREET. '"Rigolo's" Review of the Course of Values— How the Lambs are Shorn by the Manipu lators—St. Paul & \One the leading fea tures—Gould and Sage Sustaining the Xx- Tillard's. [Special Telegram to the Globe.] New Yoek, J>n. 27.—1n its Wall street column the .S'wn will say to-morrow :The past week in Wall street was one of lies, pools and famines. As a matter of course lies do cot introduce any new element into the business. They have been at all times the great implements of stock exchange opera tions. Without M->e report 3, crooked accounts and variDas other imprudent misrepresentations, Wall street could never have recovered from tha panic of 1873, risen to the boom of 1880, and collapsed again into the prostration of 1883. There is consequently nothing to wonder at that do snd of false reports con tinue to bo circulated, and that up to yes terday afternoon nobody had any poaitivo information as to the result of the meet ing of the committee on the western rail road troubles. Both private and published telegrams contradict each other. Some said that everything was perfectly har monious. Others asserted that all nego tiations had broken up in a row, and that fierce rate cutting began on Saturday and is to be intensified this morning. Tho fact that Mr. Alex. Mitchell, president of Jthe Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road had been in town some time past, and that the stock of that company had recently a substantial rally, led many T.eople to believe the Northwestern road difficulty waß sure to be settled amicably. It had been obaorved in the past that whenever Mr. Mitchell came to New York his stook went up. His Union club friends say that "old Aleck" was like ''old Harry," and went nowhere unle39 he had some business to attend to. Certainly he has so far I never visited the Empire city without making bis expenses on the bu 1-side, but no one-i-Hn vouch for it that this time he did not ceme with the intention of making an honest dollar on the other side. It would ba nothing sar prising to find the old foxy gentleman short of a good line of hi 3 company's stock, for he knows tha exact condition of the road better than any one else, and if the condition is really such as 1 Milwaukee correspondent suggests, it certainly d oes not look enticing to merchants. Here is what that correspondent writes: □"The gross earnings of the St. Paul road in 1877 were somewhat over $8,000, --000 upon some 1,400 nrles of road, o quil to about' $5,7u0 par mile The stock was then fluctuating between eleven|and forty a share. In 1882 they had over 4,500 miles of road, and the gross earnings did not reaoh $21,000,000, show ing something like $4,700 per mile. Yet the stock sold away above par. That the company cannot go on paying a 7 per per cent, dividend is best shown by the fact that the gross earnings are by $600 « mile less than the bare operating expenses of its sister road, the Rock Island. The attitnde of the Chicago, Barlington & Quincy railway toward other western roads is accounted for not only by the natural position of that concern, but also by the hostile attitnde of the general manager, Mr. L. J. Potter, toward the Yanderbilt interest. Mr. Van derbilt put Mr. Potter out of the Lake Shore, and subsequently out of the Omaha, and Mr. Potter is now said to be anxions to get square with him in the Chicago & Northwestern concern, of which Mr. Wm- H. is the leading spirit, and certainly the heaviest individual bond and stock holder. The bull element of the week was rep resented by the formation of several pools. All of them are said to be copper fastened, with stout marginal deposits, and heavy penalties for delinquents. There are said to be pools in St. Paul and in Western Union, and one in the ex-Villards. these pools are all kept very quiet and calm, but as an old oriantal proverb says: "In calm pools devils love to dwell," seT eral devils are sure to be found in every one of these pools, and to raise havoc with any outsider that sticks his nose into any of them. The ultimate result of Wall street pools is the same. Some body begins to sell out upon his confiding friends, and the whole concern "busts" wide open. The pool in ex-Vlllard's seems to have been formed under Mr. Jay Gould's guidance. He and Mr. Russell Sage nre reported to have made a large loan to the Oregon Transcontinental com pany on Saturday afternoon, and thus to have saved that concern from a final col lapse, a heavy indebtedness having reach ed maturity. The amount of accommoda tion thus supplied has been variously es timated at from $2,000,000 to $6,000,000. The correct figure will probably prove to be $1,500,000, and the terms fully satisfactory to the loaners, whose interests are of course diametrically opposed to those of the borrowers. Mr. Gould and Mr. Sage are too deeply interested in maintaining prices at the stock exchange to allow any big catastrophe. They were consequently compelled to stretoh oat a helping hand to the Oregon Transconti nental, for the purpose of sustaining the market. They have unquestionably euc ceeded in their efforts, for the market closed quite strong, with a substantial ad vance in all the ex-Villard stocks. But all this does not alter the fact that these stocks are going as of yore. Once in awhile a little spurt sets in upon an over sold market, but the moment the shorts have been driven out down go prices again in a rush. Poor, worn out patients who are still remaining in the wards of bouevolent institutions are screaming with pain and implore the doctors to tell them what the matter is with them; but alas, the only answer they get is that given by a doctor of a London poor house to a patient who suffered terrible protracted agony and wanted to know what was the disease he was afflicted with. "That is what we are going to see at the autopsy," I was the answer. Nothing but a thorough post mortem innestigation will ever dis close what the ex-Villard stockholders have been killed by. THE RAILWAYS. JEALOUS CHICAGO PAPERS SNARL IMG AT THE "GLOBE'S" ENTER PRISE. Proof that the Information as to the Set ilement of the Burlington Jlifficulties was Correct—Gentral Railroad Intelligence. The Railroad Difficulties. I Special Telegram to the Globe, j CHicAGOjJan. 27. —The railroad editors of the\Tribune and Inter-Ocean deny the correc tion of reports sent to the Globe in refer ence to the probable adjustment of the troubles between the Chicago, Burlington & Qoincy railroad, and the tripar tites, as well as the res toration of rates in the Utah pool. Ia their telegraph oolumns, how ever, the reports aent to the Globe are fully verified. The Tribune prints the fol lowiojf specials: Nktv Yoek, Jan. 26.—Alexander Mitchell, president of the St. Paul railway, said to dty Ihat he had received early in the morn ing a private dispatch from General Man ager Merrill, announcing a practical set tlement of the diffioaities between the lowa pool roidd. lilac di3patch stated that Mr. Potter, of the Bariington, had agreed to the new terms." Mr. Mitchell said: "Bat he made it a condition th-.t he should get the assent of President Perkins. He started at once for Burlington. I have received no later news, but I consider tho matter settled. Whatever agreement has been made lam cure it is based on fair and equitable terms. It would not be otherwise. But on the information of Mr. Merrill's dispatch I am sure a settlement of the troubles ha 9 bosn reached." Omaha, Neb., Jan. 26.—General Mana ger Clark, of the Union Pacific railroad, to-day pigned the. Utah pool agreement, which was presented to him Tuesday by President Lovejoy, of the Denver & Rio Grande. The agreement, having already been signed by the Central Pacifis and Denver & Rio Grande officials, is now consummated, and there is no doubt the understanding that rates on that business which have been out since November will be restored Monday. Representatives of Colorado mining interests who are here assert that, but for this agreement there would no doubt have been a rate war on Leadvilio business between the Denver & Rio Granfleand the Northern Pacifio upon the completion of the latter's high lino nezt month. The Inter Ocean of Sunday morning is especially exercised over the "scoop" waich was telegraphed to the St. Paul Globe Friday relative to the settlement of the difficulties between the western trunk lines and the Burlington road. After announc ing that the "cruel war" ip not over, the Inter Ocean says. "As some persons are never satisfied with the truth, it was not surprising that the Chicago Times, St. Paul Globe, St. Louis Globe-Democrat and the New York Herald should-«4*.rtle the world with an early blast of harmony from their brazen trumpets of peace, proclaiming a settlement of all existing difficulties among the western trunk lines. The re sult of these reports may be conjectured as Wall street stocks went up several points, and interested ones pooketed the gains. Immense blocks of rail way securities changed hands, and new plans for stock gambling were considered. People bought stock at the advanced prices, forgetting that the bottom wonld fall out Monday morning and leave them heavy losers. Of oourse the paper that proclaimed peace did so "exclusively" in their respective cities because they bad been proclaiming it for weeks without reason, and saw an oppor tunity of making their readers believe them." As the Globe's news is fully confirmed and verified, the people who bought stocks on Saturday will be gratified to thank the usual reliable dispatches of the St. Paul Globe. General Rail Notes. I Special Telegram to the Globe j Chicago, Jan. 27.—Tho salary received by President Harris, of tho Northern Pacific, ia $20,000 per annum. As vice president of the Erie his salary was $12, --000. It is reported that the duties on the Erie peiformed by Mr. Harris will be at tended to by General Superintendent E.S. Bowen and Chief Engineer Charate, the latter being an advisory member of the official board. The annual report of the St. Paul road •hows earnings of 9 per cent, on both common and preferred stock, and no float ing debt. The Grand Trunk has given notice to their employes at Point St. Charles shops of a 10 per cent, reduction in their wages until spring. The Rook Island, in accordance with the eastern trunk line agreement, has dis continued rates of its own tickets in New York. The Vanderbilt extension to Ciearfield will be completed by April. The National Horse Show. [Special Telegram to the Globe J. New Yobk, Jan. 27.—The directors of the National Horse Show association have decided to hold another grand horse show at Madison Square garden during the last week of May. The prize list has been very carefully revised, the premiums in regular classes amounting to nearly $10, --000, which, with the special prizes that will be offered, will make the amount of premiums over $20,000. Particular at tention has been given to trotters, fifteen classes being made of them and prizes to amount of $3,500. Piizes for thorough breds have also been largely increased, as is also the case with hunters and carriage horses. Insurance License. Columbus, 0., Jan. 27. —At the request of the superintendent of insurance, the at torney general has furnished an opinion in the oase of the Fidelity and Casualty company, of New York, refused a license to do business in Ohio in October last. He gives the opinion that the matter is dis cretionary with the superintendent whether he will issue a license to a company doing several kinds of business, and as New York never refused the Ohio companies doing a similar business in that state, therefore there was no call for enforcing retaliatory statutes. The attorney general pronounces the Fidelity a branch of insurance, and says the company wonld have no recourse at law should the superintendent refuse to relioense when the Fidelity and Casualty files their annual statement. The superin tendent, it is understood, will issue a license. (BlnbE. LEADERSAKDEX-LEADEBS COMPARATIVE PECULIARITIES OF BLAISE AXD COSKLIXG. The Difference Being About as Ureatn Cheese and tsh-im Milk—Raking the Field with a Fin* Tooth Comb fora Presiden tial Candidate—Aside from Blame There Appears no Mam with 'a Strong Popular following — The Attempt to Manufacture a Sentiment for Lincoln. V [Special Telegram to the Globe. I Cixcihnati, Jan. 27. —"Gath," while raking the field with a fine tooth comb for a presidential candidate among the Re publican leaders and ex-leader.-, arrives at the conclusion that the differences between Blame and Conkling are about the Bam© aa those between cream, cheese and ekim milk. He also concludes that aside from Blaice there appears no man with a strong popular following, althoagh the party may be forced to take Bob Lincoln a 9 th^ir standard bearer. He says Blame is almost tha only member of the political class with a vide following in this country. He never committed anyoffense of a personal sort except to confront Conkiic^ in debate near the close of the war when they were both members of congress. Blame had had little spit«a with other people eioce that time, but they have never been made violent, and he said to me neirly fifteen years ago in Washington city that Conk ling was as smart as he could be. The most I ever could get Conkling to say in favor of Blaina was to have him nod his head once when I intimated that Blame had a shrewd way of getting along, and had quite a following. Blame was never supported like Conkling by hia following. His temperament grew better by aacce*r>. Conkling's temperament went to pieces with euocess. Elements were poured into Conkling from old fashioned nooks and corners of the world. His family origi nated away out on the end of Long Island where the society had no tray 1 through it, and was canny and witch lite. Blame grew up on one of the high roads between the east and west, where he saw the people come along to found new states and saw them return senators and warriors and herd ers. Conkling settled in Utioa, where cheese parings constitute the gieat principle of action. Blame lived in a region where they gave away cheeße and never skimmed milk. Conkling was turned into a tyrant by power. Blame imbibed from all kinds of people the elements of bis own nature —was social, reciprocal and forgiving. Mi 1. Blame's temperament outlasted Mr. Conkling's talent, stuffed with power. Conkling did not grow in congress. The silly elements of nature grew magnified with his proportioss. He infected our politics with an acrimonious temper which resulted in the death of the president. He is retired forever from public affairs, and unless he learns patience his oareer at the bar will be short. Mr. Blame also reaohed the highest place next to a president in influence and be came Garfield's superior almost as much as Conkling had been Giant's. Both Blame and Conkling united in hating Hayes. Blame is in a position to unite political classes in his favor, but the danger of his nomination is palpable. There is a little of the stalwart element in New York state, and if not strong in vo.es it can be scandalous in the press and in revelations true or false, which will dis turb the campaign and put the Republican party out of color. The convention might nominate him if it would not be afraid that it could not elect him. He has made strong enemies by hi 3 very weaknesses, which is often the case. People have an ideal of a leader which does not involve too many concessions or unchivalrio for giveness. Blame a good deal resembles Spanish politicians and their South Amer ican ministers—men with mingled literary and romantic and self-seeking powers. The Republicans believe that they have almost as good a chanoe at the presidency a? they had this time four years ago. There are many things, however. to qualify this assumption It is rather ominous to see great Republican cities like Cleveland and Cincinnati and Chicago, leaving the camp and becoming permanently Democratic. It is rather odd to see a Blame state like Michigan suffer three defeats from Democrats. The Re publioan party possesses its power by a union of the Puritan and German elements to a large extent, re-inforoed by the con servative and business elements. Of late the German and Puritan elements have been fighting. It is not sure that Blame can do any thing with the German vote. I observe that the German leaders like Suhurz, Ottendoffer, etc., look askant at Blame. Below Biaine there are but few men with any political following Mr. Arthur might take some men like Gresham and invest him with the support of this administration, and I find in Wash ington Gresham in considered a man of no polioy, rather abrupt, and of that kind of streogth and honesty which is subservient to some greater leader. Besides, Gresham and Harrison have no good will for each other, and Indiana is a doubtful state. Mr. Lincoln does not seem to be strong to the individual observer, bat faom a col lective standpoint he is the strongest man in the field. How could John Logan, for instance, oppose Mr. Lincoln if he were nominated, when Abraham Lin coln remains such a memory in Illinois, and his son, at Logan's request, went to the last convention for Grant? How can Arthur oppose Lincoln ? What has Conk ling agsni3t Lincoln? The Germans throughout the country understand the name of Lincoln as well as the negroep. The college classes can have nothing | against a man whose father sent him to Exeter and Harvard. Working elasse.-c-tu have nothing against a man vho?9 father was a rail splitter . and the poor man's counsellor. Blame might privately mutter against Lincoln, but that is his natuce. At the nomination we should hear Mr, Blame affirming that there never had been any difference among them. Temperance people have no record against I Mr. Lincoln any more than the beer peo ple. He temperately drinks his beer— very seldom. Mr. Lincoln has nsthing to do with monopolies. The young people of the country who would like to see a new galaxy come ont would ~oon warm to thi3 young man's name under stimulation of a warm political campaign. Party men who are tired of differences and fac tions could ccc no reason against Lincoln, who is both stalwart and conservative — voted for Grant and was rewarded by Gar field. The administration of Arthur can die gracefully on the understanding that a member of its cabinet received the nomi nation. The Chinese question will arise against this young man, who never played cards with China. The tariff question has for its arbitrator the beat man, geograph ically in Mr. Lincoln, who lives at the great depot of grain . and rising manufactories, ■ where the farmer consumer and machinist Bee eech other every day. , The - sectional question cannot strike this j oung man, whose fath er and mother were from Kentucky, and whose wife also, I think, was of Kentucky stock. The Methodists may reflect that his wife's father was high in that order. The world need not inquire . about him. Away back into the times of Johnson's ad ministration, when the Repub lican differences began, Lin coln's ; name harmonized everything. Mr. Lincoln is probably sixty years old. His f»tber «ad mother were married Nov. 4, 1842, a few years after Mr. Lincoln had moved with the capitol to Springfield. Lincoln did not marry until he was thirtj three years old. As a lawyer he was more popular than distinguished, and never hud any great case, having been called into the Reaper ca36 merely because n loo.il counsel was needed. From what I hear h:« son is decidedly the best lawyer. After bid father's marriage ha went to the Globa tavern in Springfield to dine, paying $4 a week for his loo^i a..d boar;?. He could hardly p3y this am, but at the same time some of his old crowd wore calling him an aristocrat bea use be had married a woman of blood and family. Now they are pitching into Bob because his mother is said to have h 3 father's talents. His father referred to Robert Linsoln in 0 letter written in 1846, saying: I have been elected to congress. We have another boy born the l(hh of March. He is very much such a child a3 Bob was at his age —rather of the longer order. Bob is short and low, and I expect always will be. The new ooy talks very plainly and is quits smart enough. I sometimes fear he is one of the little rare ripe sort that ace smarter at about five than ever after. Since I began this letter a messenger came to tell me Bob was lost, but by the time I reached the house his mother had found him and I had him whipped, and by now very likely he has run away again." Probably Robt. Lincoln has some earlier matter than this from his father. General Tom Ewing said yesterday; "No man who fought in the southern army during the war can ever hope to be presi dent. More than that, no son [of such a man will ever be president. Nay more, it is doubtful if the third generation will be able to aspire successfully to that posi tion I will be even more positive Unit no man who lived in a border state aud re mained at home, taking no part in the struggle, will ever secure the suffrages of people for the first office in their gift." THE PROPHETIC tiLOBE. A GLOBE PEOPHECY. I Fergus Falls Democrat. | In 1876 the St. Paul Gloi^e gained no little credit for predicting the nomination by the Democratic National convention of Samuel J. Tilden for presideut and Thomas Hendricks for vice president, and their election by the people. Tde prophecy was fulfilled to the letter, though neither the Democratic party, nor the people generally, were allowed to enjoy the fruits of the victory won at the ballot box, the dishonest partisan eight-to-seven com mission reversing the voice of the people and bestowing the presidential oflioe upon one Rutherford B. Haves, then and now supposed to be a resident of Ohio. On the 6th inst. the Globe was moved to another presidential prophesy, this time, however, including the inaugura tion of its candidate. The Globe predic tion is as follows: The Payno boom captured the raucu* organi zation of the Ohio legislature last night. He will be nominated for senator next Tuesday night; will be elee'ed president November 4, 1884, and inaugurated Marcb 4, ISHI. GOOD ON PBEDICIIONS. The St. Paul Globe predicts that SeZß tor Payne, of Ohio, will bo the Democratic candidate for president and that he will be elected. Hall is good on predictions but this one will not be verified. q IK RECONCILED TO TAX*. [Morris Tribune. | No wonder the St. Paul Globe booms Payne for president. With the Standard Oil company to_ provide a campaign fund a condition of things would exi3t which would fully obliterate the grateful remembrances of Tilden's memorable barrel.
