A JS'v NfcWAULM, CHAS.:L. V" & 5'* MINN. ROOS, Managing|Editor Wednesday, November 9,1887. Minneapolis is making an effort to secure the Republican national conven tion next year. A strong delegation of Minnesota Republicans will attend the meeting of the national committee to present the claims of Minneapolis and if they do as well as Minnesota men usually do we may have the national convention in our slate next year. The XJ. S. supreme court has denied the writ of error in the anarchist case and they will have to hang unless Gov. Oglesby seed fit to commute the sen tence. We are opposed to the death penalty and think that a lighter sen tence would serve the ends of Justice better. The hanging of these men will stamp them to martyrs in the' eyes of a good many people and will bring a goodly number of sympathizers to the cause which they have represented. An exchange uses the following pointed and sensible remarks "Young man, when you jeer at a lady passing along the street or haunt and startle her glances, does it ever occur to you that some other scoundrel might insult your sister, your wife, or, in coming years, your daughter, in the same in famous manner? 'How would you like that? Would you think it Jsmart? Would you think it manly or an eri dence of blood If so,*jrou ought to be kicked from one end of the conti nent to the other and horsewhipped back again. Fred Warner of Redwood Falls occu pied the position of assistant clerk of the last house. He was in St. Paul Wednesday, and while conversing with a Pioneer Press reporter he threw some additional light on the "House File 157" matter. He looked up the origi nal report of the house committee on taxes and tax laws, to whom the bill was referred, and discovered that when the committe returned the bill it recom mended that it pass as amended. His point,' which seems to be an. exceeding ly good one, was^that the amendment referred to the words, "and others" were included in the bill after its pass age. Jenny (Lind Goldschmidt, the cele brated songstress, died at her home in London, Nov. 2, aged 66. She had_ been seriously ill fcr some weeks so that her death was not wholly unex pected. Jenny Lind was born in Stockholm, Sweden, Oct- 21, 1821, and from the time she was three years old sang more or less. When about 18 she made her first appearance in opera. In 1850 she visited this country as a on cert singer, and became at once, under the management of P. T. Barn urn, one of the most noted and best ad vertised singers that ever set foot on our soil. She was married at 'Boston, Mass., Feb. 5, 1852, to Otto Gold schmidt, the pianist, and they returned to Europe where they have resided ever since. The sensational news was wired from Chicago Saturday that four bombs had been found in the cell of anarchist Lingg. The reporters must either be hard up for news or something is wrong in the management of the Chicago jail. It seems incredible that material for the manufacture of bombs could be smuggled into the jail where the pris oners are guarded as closely as these seven condemned men are. The same dispatch also states that Engel, one of the condemned, attempted to commit suicide by taking one ounce of laudan nm Saturday night. It seems that the newspaper reporters and others are bound to counteract the sympathetic feeling which has taken hold of the public of late. Unless some more pos* itive testimony than sensational reports are offered, the majority of people are not likely to 'believe that men who are at the brink of the grave, spend their eisure time manufacturing bombs, gigf "This killing of birds for millinery purposes is getting to be a serious bus iness, and women, notwithstanding their fine sensibilities, encourage it. At Cape Cod 40,000 terns have been killed in one season by & single agent of the hat trade. At Cobb's Island, on the Virginia coast, an enterprising busi iness woman Of New York has succeed in filling a contract with a Paris mil linery firm for 40,000 bird skins of gulls sea swallows, and terns at forty, cents apiece: The demand for egret and heron plumes has extended the line' of slaughter from Florida all along the gulf coast When the West Indian is lands^were first settled by Spanish emi grants they were the home of millions of birds of every tropical variety, but, writes M. M. Ballon in bis "Due South" to-day the feathered beauties and mer ry songsters have been entirely driven away from som* of the smaller islands and greatly reduced in number on oth thers by the demand for birds* wings with which to deck ladies, hats in Eu rope and America. Texas, sports- men receive orders from New York for plumes of white egrets in lots of 10,000. The prairies and mountain vales of the far West are scoured for birds of small size's and every variety of plum age, and from the Pacific coast hund dreds of thousands of birds' skins are shipped annually. The coast line of Long Island has been the scene of in discriminate butchery of birds by those who find it a lucrative means of liveli hood,and the New Jersey coast is rav aged in the most merciless manner. The land birds softer in the same way. Robin, "gold-winged wood-peckers, humming birds, thrushes, bobolinks, orioles, cedar wax: wings, blue birds, and meadow larks are shot by the thousand, and the skins and plumage sent to millinery-shops to be prepared for women's head-dress. f^A woman who attended a London ball wore 600 Braziliau humming birds on her dress." Good Housekeeping. And still the 'slaughter of the innocent" goes on at the behest of fashion, notwithstanding all thathas been said and written against it. Trade is Improving. R. G. Dun & Co. in their weekly trade review of Nov. 5 say Notwith standing slow collections in many quarters, and some failures of unpleas ant significance, the prevailing feeling is that the most serious points of dang er have been weathered, and trade and industries have been warned in season to check unsafe expansion. The vol ume of business continues large, wheth er judged by reports from many centers by bank exchanges, outside of New fork (which exceed last year's by about 13 per cent), or by railroad ton nage, which results in an increase of about 12 p. ct ever last year in reported earnings. In spite of an increase of $18,000,000 in the currency circulation during Oct, following the increase of $34,000,000 in September, prices do not advance much. Stocks, after some days Of re covery, show hesitation again, with ev idence that some foreign holders are realizing. Wheat has declined about lc for the week, corn fc, oats c, coffee and lard c each, and cotton l-16c, while beef fails to an average of $4.15, and hogs are 10c lower. Oil has been lifted 3 cents by combination to shut down, sugar a shade by reports regard ing the' trust, and tin and copper by speculative operations in the nature of "corners". Wool is still in buyers' favor. A borax trust is expected to raise prices rice reports are contra dictory buyers hold oft in sugar de mand is lacking in tea and irregular in coffee, and spice dealers require pa tience. In general, better prices ap pear onlyiwhere there are effective trade combinations. Long hesitation in the steel rail mar ket is broken by lower prices, sales for for Northwestern and New England delivery having been made on the bas is of $32 at mill. Pig iron is weaker at Pittsburgh and offers of No. 1 South era at $20 are reported here. Bar is not so strong, the architectural demand slackens and hails are dull. The signs indicate some shrinkage 4n consump tion, just when ne*v works are about to increase the output largely. Nor is improvement seen in the woolen manufacture. ,A Human Encyclopasdi For twenty years there has lived on Fifth avenue, within a biscuit toss of Madison square a man whose profession is, probably, sui generis. He is abso lutely a human encyclopaediaa'man of reference befacetted from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet with ab solute information upon all the known ologies, languages, professions and trades. He is of Hebrew blood and an agnostic. He is now about 50 years of age, although he looks younger and has not grown a day older in appear ance during the past decade. Interest ed from his youth up in education, he conceived the idea, some twenty years or more ago, of turning his gifts of eru dition and memory to his own account, commercially, and to that of his fellow men, intellectually, and has thrived apace since he located himself in Fifth avenue, surrounded by his books, his globes and his scientific apparatus of all kinds. Are you a physician with a delicate and difficult diagnosis on hand? Go to Mr. L. and he will in a twinkling place a dozen books, citing releveut cases, before you and elucidate the re spective treatises with rare directness and perspicacity. Are yon a clergy man with a knotty theological problem on hand? Mr. L. will, from his collec tion, numbering 2,000 works on theolo gy alone, brush away the cobwebs in a trice and cleave the rebellions nnt of perplexity to the kernel in a trice, And so on, tap this human fountain of universal knowledge at any point, and he is ever responsive. He comes high. Nothing good is cheap, but he never disappoints, and he has to be sought when the need exists. There is no sign upon the outer portals of bis study, and no alluring advertisement has ever yet disclosed the identity of perhaps thegreatest of Americans schol ars. The late Dr. J. G. Holland was his pupil and the foundation of Scrib ners Monthly was built upon the solid rock of this perennial magajzme of in formation. Mr. L. is naturally a charming conversationalist and on his Lethe day, as his friends and votaries call it, he^ will, receive every known caller without money and without price within the sanctum of his holy of holies, while he responds to the manifold quer ies that the'knowledge seeker ventures to propound. Mr. L. is in' manner genial, gracious and sympathetic. In this era of superficiality it is not a little comforting toknow that one man at least has delved to the very depths of human achievement in the purely in tellectual evolution of the God given talents of the scholar and scientist New York Graphic 3i 4 ggggggggggg g^ bej FALE"GREETING!
