9: It J. 'n~ i J' .vis 5 NEW ULM, MINN. CHAS.-L. KOOS, Managing Editor Wednesday, April 27, 1887. In a lecture recently delivered before the University [Liberal Society, at Min neapolis, the Rev. McGobrick an nounced to an astonished world his dis covery that the statements of writers concerning the persecution of Galileo are untrue and that the pictures of his misery are simply lies, "because Gali Jeo was pensioned by Pope Urban." Yes, he was pensioned, and must have been one of the happiest of mortals on this account. The fact that he was compelled, nder penalty of death at tne stake, to recant in public his fool ish notions of a moving earth, as well as the fact of his banishment to Siena and, subsequently, to Arcetri, is too in significant to be mentioned in connec tion with the munificence that kept him Ironi starving. The firm of Proctor & Gamble, soap makers at Cincinnati, will hereafter per mit its employes to share in its profits on the following plan. Three trustees are to be appointed, two book-keepers and a superintendent in the firm's em ploy, who will every year ascertain the amount of profits, and allowing interest on the capital employed and reasonable salaries to the members of the firm, di vide the remaining profits between the firm and the employes in proportion to the capital and the wages earned. The employes have accepted the proposition with thanks, and resolved to allow no outside influence to disturb the relation between them and their employers. Her Hawaian Majesty, Queen Kapi olani, the Princess Lilinokalani and se\eral high Samdwichian officials are. in San Francisco. Three hundred New York clerks were arrested the other day for sweep ing dust into the street in defiance of the mayor's mandate. The Minneapolis Evening Journal says that a metropolis like Minneapolis has its greatest glory in the future. Such modesty is very becoming. The New York legislature has passed a bill requiring hotels more than two stories high to have a strong rope at tached to each window in order to en able guests to escape in case of fire. Our state geologist, Prof. N. H. Win chell, will be accompanied on the geo logical survey this summer by his brother, Prof. Alexander Wine-hell, of Ann Arbor. A charge of bribery has been made in the Michigan legislature. Some ne down there is probably anxious t test the secret power and usefulness of a rival cipher. Up here in Minnesota, the machine wouldn't work. It seems that Gov. Pierce didn't get there as president of the "university" at Grand Forks. Does this mean that the day has not come yet when politi cians can grab for college presidencies? A Sioux Falls paper is authority for the statement that sleeping-car receipts have fallen off 200 per cent, since the interstate commerce law has been in operation. This is as it ought to be. People have been compelled long enough to pay for their berths, and if the companies are now paying passen gers for sleeping in their cars, nobody will object. WINONA REPUBLICAN. The late legislature in Maine enacted a new li quor law more stringent than any be fore. It provides that a person selling liquor shall be imprisoned for the first offense, that procuring a United States license for selling liquor shall be evi dence that the firm procuring it has sold liquor in violation of law,and that con stables shall be appointed to look out for lawbreakers and collect evidence against them. The law went into effect on the 18th inst., and now is in force. But the new law appears to be no bet ter than the old in suppressing the li quor traffic. As an experiment it is a failure. Bangor, as the telegraphic dispatches inform us, has 200 saloons running every day, and the hotels have open bars. In other cities the law is likewise disregarded. It is enforced in small places and in the country, where public sentiment is in favor of temperance. It is not enforced where public sentiment is opposed to enforced abstinence. In other words, the law is ajgreat success where men do not feel inclined to violate it, but wherejthe disposition to drink exists it is a failure now as it always has been. When an individual or a community can be impressed with the conviction, whether based upon physical, moral, or economical considerations, that the consumption of intoxicating. beverages is wrong and detrimental to the best welfare of such individual or communi ty, there will be no difficulty in any such case in securing obedience to a prohibitory law. But a prohibitory law has in and of itself never brought about that convictionand it never will. The French crown jewels will soon be worn by the wives of United States senators.,.,,. "If the Preston Union slink was within reach of the arms of the South ern Minnesota editors he would get his probosus flattened for calling them vile names. You are not worth notic ing, you puppy."LAKE CRYSTAL UXION. We should advise the Lake Crystal contemporary to put in his heavy woik henceforth with the bare knuckle. Cl Bob Burdette pays his compliments to ifi& newspaper chronic fault-finder as foilows: "Suppose a newspaper man every time he hears of a man who severely criticises him or his paper in public, should retaliate by holding up to the public gaze the faults and short comings of said fault-finder, what would be the result? Why, the critici ser thinks himself terribly outraged and would thirst for the editor's gore. Then the poor quill-driver would get shot or shoot somebody. The patient beast of burden, the country journalist, never does this except under great pro vocation. It isn't because he is afraid to do it, but because he isn't mean enough. He allows men to go around trying to destroy his business. He hears his paper called a worthless sheet because its editor, in doing his duty has stepped on somebody's toes. Such worthless scoundrels should receive BO mercy at the hands of the* press." By an act of Congress at the close of the war a bounty of $100 was allow ed all volunteers of '61, This included Sheriff Higgins, who had enlisted in a Vermont regiment, and he at once ap plied for the bounty, forwarding with his application his discharge from the service. That was twenty-three years ago. A few days ago Mr. Higgins re ceived a letter from Washington, an nouncing that his application had been granted, and tbe $100 would be paid out of the first appropriation made by Congress for that purpose. The letter also contained his discharge, that had been forwarded to Washington at the close of the war. Mr. Higgins has hopes that his grand-children will live long enough to receive the $ 100.ST.
