At the last meeting of the council the offi
cial heads of three patrolmen dropped upon
the block under the axe of the headsman of
the Republican machine. These officers had
served the city for one year or more, and
were regularly reappointed by Mayor Pills
bury, and coniirmed by the city council at
the time of the other appointments. They at
once qualified by furnishing the necessary
bonds,and ordered new suits of clothes made
by their tailors. Apparently the ap
pointments had been made in good
faith, but good faith cuts a small figure in
a political campaign, particularly when the
Republleans win the election. Good faith
would interfere witli the spoils system. It
has always been the custom to give every of
ficer a fair and just trial in Mayor's court;
but, again, custom is a fool when set in jux
taposition with the ardent wish or the impre
cations of the shufflers who manipulate the
"machine," and no trial was accorded the
three discharged officers.
The liquor ordinance, placed on its first
reading at the last meeting of the city coun
cil, as briefly outlined in yesterday's Globe,
is now the all absorbing theme in Minneapo
lis. The iron clad clauses in the ordinance
are unjust, if not unconstitutional. To re
quire a vendor iv vinous or malt liquors to
give bonds, would meet with the approval of
every fair minded man, but to prevent
a dealer from selling out to a
responsible man, and transferring a license
which shall cost $500 to his purchaser, is un
questionably to perpetrate an injustice. Fur
thermore, to prevent the licensee from using
the license which shall cost him §500 in any
other locality than that originally designated
in the license, if lie were to have his saloon
burned, or be forced to remove per force of
some other contingency, is manifestly unfair.
Hitherto the ordinance iv vogue lias placed
the hour for closing saloons at midnight, but
the one now before the city council makes
the hour 11 instead.

the same position as last week. Millers, as
a rule, are quite distressed at the general
blue outlook prevailing, but exhibit a high
degree of tenacity by continuing to hope on
for an improvement. The flour production
last week was about the same as the preced

Civil Service Reform.
Postmaster Laraway has been notified from
Washington to place on file all applications
for appointments in the postal service at Min
neapolis and to arrange for a civil service ex
amination to be superintended by Commis
sioner John M. Gregory on the 10th of June.
The postmaster is supplied with blank forms
and printed instructions to applicants. Those
who pass the examination will be given
places. Mr. Laraway states, when vacancies
occur, but he does not regard it probable that
any changes will soon be made iv his office.
He said to the Globe reporter to-day:
"I think I have an exceptionally efficient
corps of employes at present. The first year
of my office I was seriously handicapped.
The government did not allow me sufficient
money for clerk hire to employ and retain
competent aud efficient people. I did secure
good clerks but they couid not afford to re
main with me, for instance the Security
bank employed one of the best; Fuller 6c
Simpson hired one away, and
soon. Fortunately I can now pay a man
what lie is worth, and unless some of my
present force tender resignations it is not
likely many changes will be made. When
from dereliction or other cause one is re
moved, or when one resigns, I 6hali be
obliged under the new civil service law to
draw from the list of accepted candidates in
stead of using my own discretion or cohsult
ing my own pleasure as heretofore. Never
theless I am not displeased as it removes all
responsibility in this particular.
At an early hour yesterday mornng three
burglars entered the meat market of Eisman
& Weber, at 705 Sixth avenue north, aud se
cured $180. Mr. Eisman slept in a room

hearing the noise he thought it was made by
his partner, Mr. Weber, who is in the habit
of coming to the shop at an early hour every
morning to awake Mr. Eisman for a trip to
the slaughter bouse. Ou calling "who's
there?" Mr. Eisman was immediately con
fronted with a brace of ugly-looking revolv
ers in the hands of a tall, slim man wearing
a felt hat, and masked to conceal his identity.
Eismau attempted to reach for his own
weapon, but the desperado was too quick for
hrm, and with the aid of another masked bur
glar, the butcher was thrown upon the bed,
gagged, and his hands bound behind his
back. The criminals then searched
for money and succeeded in finding $126 iv
a trunk which they broke into spliuters
While this was going on another burglar was
in the meat shop, where he found a few dol
lars iv the drawer which he broke open with

him lie in the position they had placed him.

Senator McPherson thought the bill defec
tive, aud moved its recommittal.
Senator Morgan said the bill provided for a
number of inspectors who would be interest
ed in keeping aiive the impression that dis
ease existed among the cattle of the country.
The continuance of the office depended on
the fact, or the supposed fact, that such dis
ease existed. The commissioner on agricul
ture should not be given power by which he
might go into auy state and slaughter ani
mals without the consent of the owners. The
owner of the property should have an oppor
tunity to be heard, and the bill should pro
vide for such a right.
While Senator Plunb's attention was di
verted, the question was put to recommit,
and chair, upou a viva vocie vote, got so far
as tonnuounce thatthe"ayes seem to have it,*'
when Senator Plumb rose to speak. The
chair said the only thing in the order was, as
to whether there should be a division of the
On the suggestion of Senator Hoar, how
ever the matter was treated as though the
question had not been put.
Senator Plumb then addressed the senate in
reply to the objections made to the bill and
bis opposition to the motion to recommit.
A recommittal he said would be a destruc
tion to the bill and au indication that the
senate did not want to pass any bill on this
subject of the cattle disease at this
session. All the stock growing association's
had passed resolutions favoring the bill, and
every intelligent stock grower favored it. In
regard to the constitutional question, Sena
tor Plumb said when one state attempted to
keep out cattle from another state tho su
preme court decided it had no constitutional
power to do so, and to assert now that the
L'nited States had no right under the consti
tution to regulate this inter-state commerce
in cattle, would be to assert that power vest
ed nowhere. Replying to the charge that the
agricultural department had been instru
mental in spreading the reports of cattle dis
easeases, Plumb said the news carried, not
primarily by the agricultural department,
but by newspapers, and to attempt to pass it
over by not mentioning or discussing it,
would be the worst thing that could happen
to us. The sooner known and dealt with
the better. The people did not wait in these
days for information to be conveyed official
ly, and even if they did, an official declara
tion to the effect that no contagious disease
existed among the cattle of this country,
would be a parallel for the pope's bull against
the comet. As to McPherson's criticism,
that there was no pleuropneumonia in tho
country, Plumb pointed to the resolutions of
the Legislature of New Jersey, admitting its
Senator McPherson inquired if Senator
Plumb was awartkthat any cattle disease ex
isted in New Jersey to-day.
Senator Plumb said he did not know that
it did not exist.
Senator McPherson said the speech of the
senator from Kansas, (Plumb) was just of
the character of one needed by the govern
ment of Great Britain, to keep every head of
American cattle out of the ports of that
Senator Plumb said several years before,
when this question came up here, the British
government had issued an order prohibiting
the importation of American cattle beyond
the seaport at which it might arrive.
Senator McPherson said, that the British
statesman doubtless thought it desirable, in
behalf of their own cattle raising interests,
but the total exclusion of American meats
from foreign countries would have the most
serious effect upon the enormous cattle inter
ests of this country.
Senator Plumb understood the senator
from New Jersey was interested, practically,
only in one phase of the question, the abat
toir branch, and thought he might not attach
sufficient importance to the cattle raising in
terests, which, Plumb said, were unanimous
ly in favor of this legislation.
Senator McPherson inquired what the sen
Senator Plumb said he understood the sen
ator to have said that he was interested in
Senator McPherson replied he was not in
terested in any aspect of the case, except as
a cattle grower. His occuption was a farmer
and he grew a few cattle. He had no other
interest in the matter, but if he bad been in-
terested it would not have changed his mind
as to the proper measure of legislation.
Senator Plumb had no intention to impute
in any case an unworthy motive to the sena
Senator Coke said the great interest of his
state had been assaulted and libeled, and its
value in consequeuce depreciated by officials
of the United States. The bulk of the testi
mony before the senate went to show that
no pleuro-pneumonia was in the country.
One gentleman had told him he had
advanced $500,000 on cattle, and if this bill
passed he would lose half of it. The cattle
interests are suffering, and it would suffer
from this constant agitation. Where, he
asked, was pleuro-pneumonia? Agitation
could not locate it, except in the agricultural
report. If there was testimony of contagi
ous disease among Texas cattle he would
only be interested to get passed the oest bffl
he could. As there was no such evidence
he must oppose the bill. Between one
seventh and one-sixth of the cattle of the
United States were in Texas, and the treasury
cattle commission had recommended these

This would make a great difference in the
price of beef, and consumers would be
largely out of pocket by it.
Senator Jones. Florada, took the floor, but
gave way to a motion for the senate to go
into executive session. After a few minutes
in executive session, the doors reopened

The house went into committee of the
whole, Mr. Converse in the chair, for consid
eration of the senate amendments to the
naval appropriation bill.
No opposition to recommendation of non
concurrence was made until the amendment
appropriating $400,000- to complete the or
dnance outfit of new cruisers was reached,
when Mr. Blackburn moved concurreuce.
■ He would vote, he said, for non-concurrence
in all senate amendments except this one.
This amendment had been put on in the
senate on motion of a senator from his own
state. The government had begun the con
struction of four vessels, costing $3,000,000,
and the amendment simply proposed to pro
vide an armament to put on these 6hips.
He had not voted for the construction of
these vessels, he had not favored it, but with
§3,000,000 invested already, he was not will
ing to go before the county, refusing to ap
propriate §400,000 to make these ships
Mr. Hewett, of New York, supported the
.Mr. Blount trusted the majority would not
strike this unusual blow at the committee on
appropriations, notwithstanding'the taunts
that has come from the other side in regard
to the matter of the expenditures of the
country from one end to the other. He was
as willing to trust the distinguished gentle
man now in charge of the matter as any
other now in the country. [Applause.] Mr.
Blackburn's motion agreed to by 114 to 92.
Mr. Randall gave notice that he would de
mand the yeas and nays in tbe house.
Mr. O'Neil, Pennsylvania, would concur in
the amendment for additional cruisers, with
the amendment providing at least three ves
sels to be constructed in the United States
navy yards. He criticized severely the action
of the secretary of the navy in closing the
Long Island navy yard, on the recommenda
tion of the committee which had dared to
report that it would cost $50,000,000 to com
plete it. The men who made that report had
never examined the subject, but were deter
mined to follow out the dictates of the secre
tary of the navy.
Mr. Gibson expressed his willingness to
vote for just and fair appropriation of the
money of the people, that they might have a
navy to represent their iuterests on the high
Mr. Bland.—"lf you had a navy what
would you do with it I"
"Put it on seas," replied Gibson.
"And let it rot," suggested Bland.
"Oh, we will.have many an excursion,"
Mr. Gibson. —"I have heard no argument
used against the building of a navy,except that
it might interfere with the election of some
gentleman in a congressional district, who
has said, the country does not need a navy,
not one solitary man. It is the begging the
question to say we need no navy because we
are not in war."
Mr. Bland. —"What would you do with
navy to-day if you had it?"
Mr. Gibson. —We would give our business
men confidence to go out into the world and es
tablish trade, and with a navy we would un
lock the labor of this country, and men en
gaged in bulling aud bearing the markets
would not be able to do so. We have no
trade, and if we follow your lead, we never
will have a trade. And now it is, because I
desire to see American Commerce revived,
because I desire to see our interests have
some protection, that I am anxious to build
up the navy, and if the country has no
honest men who can be entrusted with the
building of the navy, we had better lower
our flag and seek the protection of some
Mr. Tillman opposed the pending amend
ment, because he could demonstrate, if he
had time, that it was a stupendous fraud for
buying the next presidential election, aud it
was to be done under the pretense of being
the laborers friend.
Mr. Kasson said, thejtrue reason of the
Democratic opposition to the binding of
the navy has been shown to-day to be a fear
of the secretary of the navy. He challenged
investigation into the most minute acts of
Chandlers' administration. If the Democratic
party took the ground that no starving la
boring man should have employment in the
government service, for fear he should vote
against it, let it do so, and go before the
country. The election was to take place in
in November, and an amendment might be
adopted, that no contract should be made un
the Ist of January 1885, or until the 4th of
next March. Kasson concluded by saying,
the country had passed beyond the days of
boss rule. The sentiment of the country, ex
cept in Ohio, which still went for the spoils,
was for the prosecution of the principles of
civil service reform.
A colloquy then ensued between Kasson
and Cox as to the Jay Hubbell assessment
circulars, which partook of a somewhat per-
sonal character, but had litte to do with the
question directly under discussion.
Mr. Hewitt, of New York, said he was not
willing to trust the expenditure of this money
to the present secretary of tbe navy. He
knew him as an able, astute politician, and he
believed that in the expenditure of public
money he was an honest man. aud yet the
conntry bad some experience what he would
do when placed in a position of great neces
Mr. Hiscock inquired to what his colleague
Mr. Hewitt replied, that under the naval
law of 1883, tbe secretary of the navy was
directed to dispose of certain -hips aud ord
nance stores, no longer required for public
use. and to pay the proceeds of those sales
into the treasury of the United States. Un
der that number of vessels, which were sold
in September last, aud produced something
like $500,000. Wheu pending bill was ori
ginally before the house, he. Hewitt, went to
the treasury department to find out whether
the money had reached there. It was pay
able to the secretary, within thirty days after
the sale of the material, and yet up to three
weeks ago. it had not reached treasury. Now
he made no charge whatever
of any improper use of that
money, he did not believe the secretary
of the navy would appropriate a dollar of it,
but when he left that money in the hantl- of
some subordinate iv New York or Boston, be
neglected bis duty. lie had found that $50,-
OOU bad been received from the pnrch&sing
agent in New York on an open check, and
the secretary of the treasury was unable to
say from what account it came, except that
it was to the credit of the navy department.
He would no trust a public officer who did
not see that the money which came into his
custody was properly placed iv the treasury,
the law required. There was no obligation
ou the part of the secretary to turn iv money
before the election, except the obligation of
the law with which he had not complied
three weeks ago.
Mr. Calkins defended the secret an of the
navy, and Mr. Cannon quoted from the an
nual report of the secretary of the navy to
show that all the money received from the
sale of old material bad been placed on de
posit with the treasurer of the United states.

sent to the cierk"s desk, and had read a tele
gram from the secretary of tin- navy, .stating
that the proceeds of the sale had been Imme
diately deposited in the treasury, and there
remained. The reading of the telegram was
received with applause on the Republican Ide.
Mr. Cannon, continuing, thanked God
that he was not so organised, he was com
pelled at all times, in Beason and out of
season, to distrust every public officer or
every private citizen, lie thanked God he
did not belong to a party that was put in
such a strait that its principal leader, or
leaders, were compelled for the purpose of
making a party success, to insinuate on false
premises against the honesty and honor of
M. Hewitt repeated his statement, that in
his Inquiry at the treasury department, be
bad been informed the money had not been
paid into the treasury, and when investi
gation was mad, it would be found, though
the money might be in the custody of the
treasurer, it was not "carried into the treas
ury" as the law required.
.Mr. Cannon raid, the gentleman from
New York had gone for malfeasance, and
had seeeeded in Bhowing, not only his ill
will, but bis ignorance of tile public reports
of tin- department.

The Largest of Tanneries IJurned.
Cincinnati, April 24. —The American
Oak Leather tannery, occupying the Bquare.
bounded by Kenner street, McLean avenue,
Dalton and Florence streets, was burned at
an early hour this morning, excepting the
Japaning department which was saved.
There were 45,000 hides iv the factory. The
loss will reach £400,000; insurance §300,000.
Portions of the tannery were burned a year
ago. Four hundred people are thrown out of
work. So far the elTorts to obtain a list of
the insurance is fruitless. Members of the
firm refused to give details. It is ascertain
ed from other souices that the insurance is
placed in local companies and in companies
represented here. The fire originated in the
drying room, and was discovered by the
watchman lighting a fire under the boilers
about 2 oe'lock this morning. The spread of
the liames was rapid and the spectacle was
one of remarkable brilliancy, the great
building seemed to be all aflame atone--.
There were many narrow escapes from fall
ing walls, but no injuries are reported.
The building is the largest of tbe kind in
the world. The capital stock is a million.
J. E. Morey is president, S. M. Lamont,
vice president; August Fogel, secretary and
treasurer. There is no question of the abil
ity of the company to repair its losses and
proceed with the busiuess.
The Cuban Insurrection.

unable to catch Aguero. The authorities
continue to maintain silence, thereby <■::

worst may happen. Many disbelieve that

cording to reliable information is, that the

thereby disconcerting the troops. Aguero Is
supposed to be staying iv the Seapala
swamps. It is rumored he was again offered
a sum to leave the island.
Death of Isaac X. Arnold.
Chicago, April 24.—Isaac N. Arnold died
at his residence in this city this afternoon.
He was a prominent member of the Illinois
bar, represented the Second Illinois district
in congress in 1861, and was for many years
the intimate friend of Abraham Linboln. He
wrote the life of Benedict Arnold and other
books, and finally became so much engrossi d
by his literary labors, as to seriously injure
his health. He was born at Hartwick, New-
York in 1815.
The Age of Statesmanship,
It is a little singular that so many of our
public men are so near of an age. Blame
was born iv 1830, Allison in 1829, Windom
in 1827. Garfield was younger than any of
them having been born in 1831. Sam Ran
dall was born in 1823 .Senator Edmunds was
born in the same year. Conkling came i nto
this unworthy world in the same year too.
Allison, Windom and Randall are not gray,
but Edmunds looks like a man of seventy.
He is bald-headed, his beard and what is left
of his hair are white, he has tlm dyspepsia
and he is stooped aud permanently old in
even- way. Conkling was also born iv 1828.
Logan has never told his age and gets so
angry when any one talks about it. He can
not be far from sixty. Sam Cox was born
in 1824. Grant was born in 1822. Now
come two great names. Don Cameron was
born in 1833, and John Mitchell (they are
the senators from Pennsylvania) was born
in 1838. What a happy day that was for
Pennsylvania. Mr. Arthur's age is not far
from the other statesmen I have mentioned,
except Mr. Mitchell who is still a very young
nian as you will see by the figures—the only
way of testing it.
