The Republican State Convention
St. Paul last Thursday was a model one.
It was harmonious it was enthusiastic
it was in every sense Republican. Sen.
Davis presided and when called upon for
a speech he gave to the convention a
masterly effort. His words are in sub
stance as follows:
There is a swelling tide of sentiment
and conviction rising throughout the land
which infallibly presages the wafting of
the great old party to victory at the next
election. [Cheers.] Ever since that
campaign of panic and disaster of two
years ago, of misunderstanding and mis
apprehension, wrherever public opinion
has had a chance to express itself, the ac
tions and the record of the Republican
paity have received full vindication.
[Cheers.] In the State of Ohio William
McKinley (loud applause), whose name
isni effacably inscribed upon the bill that
wras made the test of the last election,
with the leading featuies, and, indeed,
all of the features of that measure direct
ly at issue, wras elected by a most tri
umphant majority. [Cheers.] At the
same time the faithful adherence of the
Republican party to the honest dollar of
100 cents wras also an issue [cheeis] and
under the true guidance of glorious John
Sherman that issue, so far as that party
is concerned, is settled. [Cheers] In
the elections in the State of New Yoik
held las't spring the Republican gains
were such as to inspire the greatest hopes
in our friends and to carry teiror to the
hearts of our enemies. In the strong
hold of Democracy—Jersey City—their
hosts weie overthrown the other day,
and hei*e in St. Paul [upioaiious ap
plause] the day before yesterday tor the
fiist time in twenty years the Republi
can party, aided by the element of good
order and good citizenship, arose in its
might and shook off the incubus which*
has rested upon our prosperity for a
quaiter of a century. [Cheeis.] And
the electric thrill of this victory has
gone thiough the State of Minnesota it
has inspired new hope it will incite
fiesh endeavor. The Fifty-first congress
was the first time with one exception
that the Republican party had been in
possession of all the departments of this
government for many years. There has
either been a Democratic senate or a
Demociatic house or the four years' cal
amity of a Democratic president [cheers]
so that stiive as it might to redeem the
enormous debt, to which the Republican
party was pledged to the public, noth
ing could be done. How well the Re
publican party, under the present ad
ministration, has redeemed the pledge is
a matter of history. The Republican
paity has stifled the corrupt repression
of parliamentary procedme under the
athletic and muscular ruling of Thomas
Reed [cheers], whereby a man was count
ed as present, when, in fact, he physical
ly was. [Laughter.]
And so measuie after measure with
the slow, steady piocession of a plane
tary body moving under law to its des
tiny in its orbit, the Republican party
proceeded to redeem the pledges which
it had made to the nation to enact and
jiass legislation conducive to the public
good in the redemption of its pledges.
Let us see: It provided for the quad
racentennial that most magnificient
pageant this world has ever seen. [Cheers]
It passed a bill for the administration of
the customs and lifted that department
from the rank corruption in which it had
swelteted it passed a bill making trusts
and monopolies criminal offenses, so far
as the pioprietors are concerned, so that
jUNftie of them is detected in Minnesota
to-day it can be indicted in the United
States court. Under its influence the
Standard oil trust has disappeared and
gone into liquidation. It was not un
mindful of the lights of the Northwest
it laid the magic hand of development
upon that phenomenon of nature of the
Soo [cheers]. The circulation of the
great West was impeded it provided
means to construct a canal for vessels of
21 feet draft and 5,000 tons burden. It
thereby lowered the freight rates and
added so much value to the acre of every
farm in Minnesota [ch#ers]. It admitted
the states of Idaho and Wyoming—two
more stars added to the Republican gal
axy. It passed a bill for the coinage of
silver which was sufficient for any hon

Senate last fall and who is now a candi
date for the Alliance nomination for
congress, was drawn as a juror for the
May term of court in Redwood county.
Upon being notified of his duty, he eith
er showed his ignorance of the law or
thought that his duty as an Alliance or
ator was more important, for he address
ed the following note 'to the sheriff-: "I
find that it will be impossible f"r me to
serve as a juror. You will confer a fav

the judge." Judge Webber was not rea
dy to expect such an excuse, however,
and gave instructions to the sheriff to
telegraph for Stewart at once.
Business Men Protect Themselves.
Mr. Segelbaum, proprietor of the great
Minneapolis dry-goods house, was in the
city last week and made an effort to se
cure the Sommer building for a branch
store. This set the business men to think
ing and at once there wras a movement
made to prevent Mr. Segelbaum from
going into business here. This move
consists in renting all the vacant stores.
Brust & Graff may occupy the Sommer
building and C. Balthrusch will probably
move into that firm's present location in
the Kiesling Block. A Business Men's
Union has also been organized with the

Hew Ulm Might Have Had It.
The Republican Distuct convention
was held in Mankato last Wednesday and
at its close sixteen members of the con
gressional committee held a meeting to
decide upon a time and place for hold
ing the next convention. A strife arose
as to the location and when the first bal
lot was taken New Ulm had two votes,
Marshall seven and Mankato seven. On
the second ballot the votes of New Ulm
went to Mankato thus giving her the con
vention, wiiereas if the twro who voted
for New Ulm had jersisted in their fight
they would have been successful. The
Marshall followeis weie deteimined to
knock out Mankato and would have vo
ted for New Ulm in case of a deadlock,
but the haste of those wiio favored New
Ulm prevented this and gave Mankato
the advantage almost without a struggle.
The date for the convention was left to
the discretion of the chairman, Mr.

In lefening to the services which at

R. Kiefer in St. Paul on Friday the
Minneapolis Tribune lecords several
events in hei life which will well be re
membered by the citizens of New Ulm.
It says: When the first troops from
Minnesota answered the call of President
Lincoln, Mrs. Augusta E. Kiefer, in com
pany with Mrs. Alex Ramsey and other
ladies, made and presented a beautiful
banner to the first German military or
ganization, commanded by her husband.
During the Indian outbreak in 1862, and
when the poor refugees from New Ulm
and vicinity, in most distressing condi
tion, reached St. Paul, it was this noble
woman who took the most conspicuous
part of all to relieve the half starved and
poorly dressed sufferers who were driven
from their homes by the cruel savages.
Mrs. Kiefer adopted a little girl whose
parents had been murdered. This girl
was brought up by Mrs. Kiefer and be
loved by the family as a daughter. When
the Franco-German war broke out the
Germans and their American sympathi
zers organized and conducted an immense
fair. Mrs. Kiefer was selected unani
mously as president of the association,
and so successfully was this fair conduct

LIND IS HOT A CANDIDATE.
He has had Honors Enough and Wishes
TYyr a Ecjt.
^j^The Minneapolis Tribune of Saturday
had the following announcement:
5Hon. John Lind is not and will not be
a candidate for governor. That fact was
fully and completely impressed upon the
minds of the large number of delegates
who personally interviewed the congress
man upon the question of his personal
ambitions Thursday. The Second district
statesman wras certainly treated in a very
flattering manner by his fellow Republi
cans, and if he had the gubernatorial bee
in his bonnet he would doubtless have
been very greatly encouraged by the de
monstration. To a Tribune reporter Mr.
"I am not a gubernatorial candidate,
have never seriously thought of being,
and will not be under any circumstances.
If I am good enough to be even men
tioned in connection with such a high
office I certainly think people can believe
me wben I say I have no desire wiiatever
to be the gubernatorial nominee. You
can put this just as strong as you please.
I am thankful to my friends for mention
ing me. I have been honored by my
party to an extent much greater than I
deserved, and now I want to retire to
private life, wheie I will always be rea
dy and anxious to do whatever I can to
advance the inteiests of the Republican
That Mr. Lind is entirely sincere in this
matter was very apparent from his man
ner. The majority of the delegates from
the Second district seemed to regard Mr.
Lind as a candidate and have not talked
about him much in this direction lately.
Theie is further evidence of Mr. Lind's
sincerity in the fact that in conversation
with personal friends yesteiday he asked
them to kindly refiain from mentioning
his name in this connection. While Mr.
Lind has studiously refrained from giv
ing public expression to his peisonal pre
ference for gubernatorial candidate it is
said he is decidedly in favor of Mr. Nel
son. He seems to legard Mr. Nelson as
the most available man and therefoie fa

This account was confiimed by Mi.
Lind upon reaching home, but it can
hardly be taken as meaning that he
would not accept if nominated without
effort on his part.
Clean Out The Gang.
When the Review a week ago made
vise of current events to point out the
necessity of a certain reform in the neigh,
borhoocl of this city, it did not do so
merely to fill up space or with the inten
tion that the matter should be forgotten
as soon as it had been read. On the con
trary, it meant just what it said then and
it means it now. The house hich was
referred to does exist, and there is evi
dence sufiicent to know that it is doing
a business from which the boys and
men are reaping no good. An Anthony
Comstock sense of molality is not prompt
ing the Review at present nor has it on
previous occasions, but the effects that
such an institution has upon the reputa
tion and business interests of a small
town and the moral depravity that is oe
ing instilled into the youth of a place as
the result of the filthy debauchery that
constitutes their chief stock in trade is suf
ficient without any high strung sense of
virtue, to demannd that they be closed
up. And the authorities of New Ulm
have a light to see that it done. The
law is not very explicit in defining the
barriers which govern the punishment of
crime and if the proper steps are taken
these disgraceful institutions can be made
to close up shop within a few short days.
Let the older heads stop winking and
lookout for the younger and indiscreet
element of the city.
Condemned By The Pope.
A cable dispatch received from Rome
by Archbishop Co] rigan indicates that the
pope has partially disapproved of Arch
bishop Ireland's policy in reference to
the joint use of Catholic school buildings
and teachers by the ,tate and the church.
The dispatch reads "Faribault system
condemned special case reserved."
The so-called Faribault system is one
which removes all insignia or religion
from parochial schools, and renders the
course of instruction entirely secular un
til the end of the regular exercises, when
the Catholic children remain for religious
instruction while the Protestants go away
which was put under the direction of the
village school board, its expenses being
defrayed by the village on the above con
Archbishop Ireland liked the plan,and
proposed to extend it to other places in
his archdiocese. The decision of the pope
prohibits this general introduction of the
system, while permitting the plan to be
practiced in special instances where it may
be deemed expedient. Archbishnp Cor
rigan expects to receive the full text of
the decision by mail within the next ten
days or fortnight.

Demanded By the Country.
The republicans of Ramsey eonnty will
have a splendid opportunity in the nevt
few months to demonstrate whether all
political significance has fled from this
city and located itself for all time in the
vociferous legion of Minneapolis. They
may also, if they please, demonstrate
that the balant, braggart, bulleying hec
tor, with whom the several smaller com
munities of the state have become so
familiar within a few years, possesses all
the old time popularity of St. Paul. It
is rarely popular, however profitable it
may be, for a man or a community to
maintain a standing claim to the entile
earth. That is the attitude borne by
Minneapolis on all questions pertaining
to trade, population, politics and in every
other regard which involves any compar
ison with other cummunities. Having
gotten and held on to everything there
is in the way of national office heiea
bouts having asked for and secured the
active co-operation of St*Paul to bring
to her borders the national con\ ention,
she now proposes to hold on to eveiy
thing in sight, even to the ornamental
position of national committeeman.
"Get all you can and keup all -\ou gv.'t"
is the motto of Minneapolis. Let us see
whether she can continue to lhe up to
it, even to a mere matter of peisonal dis
tinction.—St. Paul Dispatch.
The Dispatch should ce.se to boast
of its true Republicanism if it finds it
necessary to print such aitides as the
above. Even leaving aside the general
fact that location should have nothing to
do with the the selection of men for official
position, it should be remembered that
the demand for Mr. Evans, a Minneapolis
man, for National Committeman did not
come from Minneapolis but from the
country. If the Dispatch will take the
trouble to look into the matter it
will find that it was the atten
tion of Mr. Chas. L. Roos of Blown
county that prevented the election of
Stanford Newell and it was the pointed
speech of Congressman John Lind, wrho
a short while before had roasted the Twin
City gang, that placed the committeeship
where it belonged with loyal, big-hearted
true-blue Bob Evans,and restrained a few
Ramsey county bosses from disgracing
the convention by ignoring one who has
always been faithful to the cause in order
to satisfy a local ambition. Oh no, dear
brother of the Dispatch if any one is to
be blamed for hoggishness it is the dele
gation from Ramsey

the woids "I am out of it, I am out of it."
Nevertheless I understand, and so do the
majonty ot Mr. Blaine's friends that he
t'eoires to let Harrison go it alone until
the contention meets, so that no fault
can be found with him in the matter. He
leally expects his name to be mentioned

Woice Than Expected.
The failure of the German Insurance
Company and the Commercial Bank of
St. Paul has been more ruinous in its ef
fects than was at fiist expected. Mr.
Scheffer, who was at the head of both
concerns and who was at one time
ranked among the wealthy men of St.
Paul is to-day penniless and might read
Lord Wolsey'^ farewell soliloquy with
keen appreciation of the uncertain btate
of man. To have been worth thousands
of dollars and to have enjoyed all the
luxuries that wealth could afford, and
then after all to lose everything in a sin
gle day, is a fall tha| is colored with
nothing but despair.
Scheffer loses everything so does Gie
sen. Aberle is forced to make an assign
ment and the other stockholders will al
so lose heavily. No disposition prevails
among the wealthy men of St. Paul to
help them out,but the contrs&y the ruined
men are being attatched without mercy.
