A Lanre Gathering: at the Jackson
Street 11. E. Church Last
Evening .
Eloquent and Fervent Appeals by the Great
Temperance Worker and
The gospel temperance services were opened
with a good audience at the Jackson Street
M. E. church last evening by Mr. Murphy's
reading the thirty-eighth chapter of Isaiah,
commencing "The wilderness* and the soli
tary places shall be glad for them and the
desert shall blossom like a rose." lie
descanted on the chapter as showing the
necessity of the strong upholding and
strengthening of the weak by love, sympathy,
example and outspoken acts of kindness.
This was followed by prayer from Chaplain
Smith, of the Bethel, after which Mr. Murphy
announced that the young people of the Jack
eon street church would give a sociable and
supper in their vestry rooms this evening,
this notice being added to by Secretary Ladd,
of the Gospel Temperance union, who an
nounced that although the union had been
kindly offered the House of Hope for their
exercises this evening, that lie v. Mr. Forbes,
the new pastor of the Jackson street church,
and a worthy successor of Dr. Marshall, had
insisted that the meeting! this and to-morrow
evenings should be held in the Jackson street
church. In this connection the meeting in
the Grand Opera house was announced for 3
o'clock Bun afternoon.
Chaplain Smith, of the Bethel, was then
called up by Mr. Murphy, who gave ids expe
rience of having been drunk for twenty-six
years and sober for eighteen, and proposed to
stay on the latter line as the only safe plat
form for any man, rich or poor, learned or
Ignorant He related the anecdote of Gen.
Harrison, "Old Tlppecanoe," who while on
bis way to be Inaugurated president at
Washington, at a welcome on the route given
ut Chester, Pa., was observed to drink all
toasts with water. On being pressed to take
■wine the general rclused, saylug, "Under God
1 owe all that lam to-day, gentlemen, to a
resolve taken In my college life that wine
Should never pass my lips, for out of my
class of seventeen sixteen now till drunkards
graves." The speaker closed with a stirring
appeal to the young men of St. Paul to take
a similar stand for their own and the future
welfare of their city.
Rev. Mr. Forbes, of the Jackson street
:hurch, iras called out and made a speech
which showed that this city, in his appoint
ment to a new charge, has become the lucky
possessor of an earnest, Independent and
Sod feuring accession to its ministry.
After giving the doctrine of his church as tola
abstinence as a condition of membership,
recounting its zeal to lift up fallen man and
to educate children against the evils of in
temperance, he said he would open Its doors
to the whale world of mankind and seek for
IU rescue from sin, realizing that man
everywhere, though ho lie in the gutter, had
through God the possibilities of being fitted
for heaven. When we beheld a piece of
beautiful statuary fallen from its pcdcsdcl
and broken, we felt to weep that the work of
a great master had been, injured, faccdat
mid destroyed, yet the very angola wept for
a man fallen to the gutter. <Oh, that the
world could see with quicker sense that the
Coming Of God out Of the solitudes Of eterni
ty was to take hold of the race of man aud
lift it up to better and holier
things, and that the taking up
of the cross of Jesus means
alone Divine help Ito fallen man. lie ex
plained very happily the saying that minis
ter's boys wore the worst boys, t>y saying tHat
the minister's boy was no worse than the
tailor's boy, and the reason the saying bad
been applied to him, (which was a falsehood)
was that the public eye was fastened on him,
when he did an unseemly act, and
gave it to the world broad
cast when he thus tripped, while
the public was blind to the act of th<> tailor's
lad who was in his company. Some men
could possibly drink some and not go to a
drunkard's hell, and some persons could
cross the ocean In a skill, but both acts were
foolhardy and excecdluirly dangerous. Bet

Mr. Drake, from southwestern Minnesota,
having the earnest fire of temperance work
In Ins eye with a brilliance which attracted
"Detective Murphy,'' was led out and made
some earnest remarks o:i the subject of tem
perance, giving in his full allegiance to the
personal work in the cause as tviu;; carried
an by the great temperance apostle.
It was a thoroughly just ridicule of the
'■IS :-y and the bear" kind of story, in which
Dotty did the work of killing bruin unaided,
and her timid husband did the bragging as
to what "I and Betty did," with which Mr.
Murphy took iv hand the cowards in the
temperance work. These were the people
who when a stranger came Into a church
criticised him with their cranium necks,
were afraid of giving him a seat, and were
M freeaing that he thanked God
inwardly and outwardly when ho pot
out of their sanctuary and the society. In
the first saloon he enters, however, this
itrangnr Buds a sociable man. thoucb he bis
never been him before, they shake hand*.
lake a drink and together irive this kind of
pious people the roasting they deserve. These
people criticised him (Murphy), for his ab
ruptness in taking men by the colar to bring
them up to 6isn the pledge and
•aid he was too excited and
rough. Why, he would reach his hand
Into the red-hot fires of the damned to get
hold of the man and drag him from the
flames of drink. He did not come to St.
Paul to please this kind of pious people
had no message for the well, but for the
sick crowd in the chains of intemperance.
He didn't come here to make a great speech
or to air his oratorical powers,
but to attract the man who drinks to him
and mike him feel he was his friend. Why,
God keeps a man's heart when he is drunk
so that it thrills at tbe name of wife, mother
or a dead lost lore, and his memory leaps np
and his mind comes to sense as those sweet
dear words fall upon bis ear. Great sermons
and big speeches are not what his soul needs
tor redemption and reclamatian,but personal
work to reach the soft spot in his heart ' that
rum cannot drown.
The speaker closed with a beautiful word
picture of the signing of the treaty with the
Indians by the great Quaker, Wm. Perm, as
illustrative of personal power for good. On
a beautiful hammock of table land hung out.
from two great mountains this man with
God in his face, unarmed and silent marched
up into the midst of 10,000 hostile warriors
encamped thereon, maddened and full of
revengeful thoughts on account of injuries
from tbe white man. When he stood in their
camp they silently gathered about him
gazed into his culm and noble countenance,
sat down upon the earth and made a treaty
that will stand until the stars are folded ,up
in God's gracious garments, until the . rest
less tides of ocean cease to run, until the
glorious sun shines on this world no more,
and earth's rich harvests spring forth no
longer to be gathered for the feeding of the
West Side Gymnasium Pair.
The West Side Gymnasium fair continues
io attract large crowds, and no wonder, for
besides the usual displays of fancy articles
an.l articles of virtu exhibited at all fairs,
there is such a galaxy of beauty in the lady
attendants as can be found nowhere except
on the West side. By the wav, why , West
side — is it not time, now that (he Sixth-ward;
has grown to such important dimensions, to
call it by its proper and appropriate
name, the South side The different booths
or stalls have already been described in those
columns, but there are one or two features
which call for especial mention. Among
them is an exquisitely embroidered banner
in Kensington, worked with floss silk and
filloselle upon white and maroon satin, the
design is an artistic arrangement of will
flowers, roses, sunflowers and forget-me-nots.
The work is by Mrs.Haskell; only twenty
cents for a chance for this beautiful piece of
needlework. Another attractton at this stall
is a very clever p.acque painting by Miss E.
Bone, moss roses: still another is a piano
scarf in morocco colored flannel,, worked
with chenille in . Kensington embroidery.
This booth is presided over by two very
Charming young ladies — Miss Webber and
Miss Lcyde. Miss T. Richie is very appro
priately placed in a booth to dispense the
sweetest of sweets sweetened with sweet
smiles, and she is doing a most flourishing
business. The floral booth is furnished with
beautiful plants and little loves of button
holes. Miss (H)uelster takes care
of these, delicate exotics and by
the way the sunny Downs • of
merry England never produced more lovely
(i «b than is to be seen at this . attractive
stand. Fish ponds, of course, and post
offices — who ever saw a genuine fair without
them — lend their fun and merriment, but
there is one feature which in itself would
well pay the trouble of a tramp across the
long bridge, even if there was no 'bus run
ning, and that is the curiosity shop. There
are here collected some genuine and most
absorbing curiosities which carry one back
to former dresses 200 years old, coins
of 1770 with Washington "superscription,"
Roman and Egyptian coin 2,000 years old.
An Indian horn spoon beautifully
made as large as a shovel — what mouths they
must have had in those days; a horn knife
and fork also of Indian manufacture; some
beautiful coral jewelry from India; a pistol
from the Castor battlefield; a ring lost in
the mortar when Fort Snelling was being
built and recovered when the old postoflice
was pulled down. There are at least three
times the curiosities now that there wera
when the fair was opened. Another great,
and perhaps the greatest feature of a very at
tractive fair id the dining and supper rooms,
which which are under the able management
of Mrs. M. M. Merrett, Mrs.
Remeck. Mrs. Crockett, Mrs. Has
kell, Mrs. Barker, Miss Bixler
Miss M. Mcrritt. The tables are abundantly
furnished with everything in season, and the
Viands are the choicest. One can get a
"meal as is a meal" with such coffee as one
seldom tastes, and for a quarter. The faLi
is open to-night and to-morrow night and
Saturday afternoon there will be a children's
"matinee." •

Tho Funeral Services Over the Re
mains of Wilbur F. Story.
I Special Tclfiirram to the Globe. 1
Chicago, Oct. 80.— funeral services
over the remains of the late Wiibur F. Story
were conducted at his late residence, Prairie
avenue, to-day. Considering the great
celebrity he had won in his lifetime, it was
surprising to note that the attendance at the
final scene was comparatively small, and was
composed mainly of a few personal friends
and those connected with the establishment
over which he had presided so long.
The casket containing the remains was in
the front parlor, and on it and around it
were arranged several elaborate and beautiful
floral designs . Among the more conspicu
ous of these was a gift from the Times' com
positors, which represented a printer's stick,
wrought in white roses, carnations, mag
nolias and pinks on a bed of myrtle, and
with the significant number "SO," (a news
paper expression meaning the last) worked
in purple forget-me-nots. At the head of
the coilln was an ooen book upon a bed of
myrtle In white roses and pinks, with a bor
der of smilax, and bearing the words, '-To
my husband." This was from Mrs. Story.
Above it was a crown of white
(lowers and a white " dove. At
the foot of the cotlin was
a pillow of white flowers Inscribed "My hus
band, Dec. 3, 1*74." and beside it a broken
column of tube roses, lilies of the valey, car
nations, pinks and smilax bordering it, sent
by K. K. Bruiuerd. From J. R. Duulap was
scut a neat design of a sacred book resting
on a pillow of pinks aud English violets and
attached to it a quill pen. ■ .
The editorial and business departments of
the Time* sent a floral token made up in
imitation of the first page of the newspaper
and with a border of black.
The services were begun by Rev. Arthur
Bwaaey, who read selected passages from the
scripture, including Paul's immortal chapter
in the epistle to the Corinthians. This was
followed by prayer by Bishop Cheney. The
Chicago quartette sang "Nearer, My God to
Thee," aud another hymn and this closed
the service. Those who deelrcd then passed
by the cotl'in and looked at the face of the
dead. The feature* weie more like what they
had been in life than might have been
expected. The body Mas then borne to the
hears", followed by the pall bearers, who
were as follows: Hon. Lyman Trumbnll,
Hon. E. B. Washburnc, Judge David Davis,
Hon. C. B. Farwell, Judge T. Lite Dickey, J.
W. Doauc, Wm. Henry Smith, William Perm
Nixon, Wirt Dexter and Jesse Spalding.
The funeral procession then took its way in
carriages to Rose Hill cemetery.

services were noticed Judge Lambert Tree,

| Special Cor. of the Xew York Evening Tost.]
Boston Oct. 18 — the correspondence of
the Evening Post from Buffalo I find this Ben
tence: #< A pamphlet containing the most
revolting: and disgusting charges against
Gov. Cleveland, signed by the notorious
Ball and indorsed by other clergymen, his
been sent by mall to all these ladies," who
attended Dr. Gary's reception to Gov. Cleve
land. That can be matched by a worse fact.
.Copies of the Buffalo Beating Ttlegraph and
pUjer papers, with the grossest charges against
( the governor, have been mailed to his own
•, piste rs in Ceylon, who certainly are not vot
ers in this country and cannot be presumed
to have political Influence here. I saw to-day
■ clergyman from Worcester who said that a
pamphlet of the above nature, apparently the
identical one. had been sent to him. After
reading the first half page, .and glancing
through thus remainder, he judged by its an
onymous appearance and sensational dis
play of type.' : that it was the work of a crank"
and, disgusted threw it into the waste basket.
That pamphlet appears to be distributed free
ly in this neighborhood," and to come from
Philadelphia. But the charges in that ob
tained a limited currency here before it ap
peared,-it would seem. Under date of Oc
tober 1 they were written by a Buffalo clergy
man to a correspondent in Boston, and
were followed by a request that they be
loaned to two gentlemen. While so loaned
copies of the entire 'letters were made and
circulated by Blame men. This letter con
tained au offer to furnish satisfactory proof
of the ten specific charges made if some one
would go to Buffalo and investigate them.
It was a frank fair, offer apparently, and a
gentleman has been to Buffalo from this city
for the sole purpose of making an Investiga
tion of these charges, full proof of which was
offered. Several new counts in the indict
ment were added and the list was formidable.
The letter has been put in circulation by
means of the copies made when it was loaned
and no attempt has been made by those who
circulate it, so far as I know, to learn wheth
er the charges were sustained by the investi
gation. To the persons to whom this pam
phlet is sent it says in large capitals: ''The
names and residences of all the partiss men
tioned are available in case of need," though
they were withheld until the investigator
went to Buffalo. The eivdencc ie said to
have been gathered by seven of the Buffalo
pastors, to have been carefully sifted by com
pctant legal counsel, and pronounced sur
prisingly full and available in every court of
Under the promise of such evidence as
would prove conclusively Mr. Cleveland's
real character, this gentleman went from
Boston to Buffalo. He was referred by the
clergymen who wrote the original letter to
Rev. George 11. Ball, and the two attempted
to make thorough work of each specification
— Dr. Ball, as familiar with all the facts, to
furnish his companion with proofs of the
charges. The first charge covered an ac
quaintance of m9ny years," and offences
charged were 6aid to have occurred "not
many months since." When found the wit
ness said that he had known little of Mr.
Cleveland for five or six years, but refused
positively to testify. Notbingcould be learned
from him. The "witness" to charge No. 2
was learned to be a drinking man, and so far
broken by bis dissipation in Buffalo as to
make life there unadvisable for him in the
opinion of his family, and he was taken from
the city by relatives before lie could be seen
by the Boston visitor. So charge No. 'A failed
of corroboration. Regarding charge No. 3,
which related to an alleged occurrence last
winter, the witness positively refused to say
a word. Nothing could be obtained to verify
the attack on the governor. But the witness
did say that there were those of his acquaint
ance who would assert that he was so stroug
a partisan that he would lie for the sake of
hi- party, "and this admission he made wholly
gratuitously, with no question or exigency
which required it.
When charge No. 4 was reached Dr. Ball
said that it would be useless to visit the wit
ness, for he would positively not testify to
them, nor would he make the statement re
garding the governor to any one except his
own pastor, not even to the "provisional
committee" of seven clergymen. So no satis
faction was obtained there. Charges 5 and 0
related to occurrences alleged to have been
seen at a railroad station 'JO miles from Buf
falo. As there is only one train a day each
way, a man was hired to drive there and
make an appointment with the principal wit
ness to come to Buffalo and meet the inquir
ing Bostoniau. The appointment was let a!
half-past 10 in the forenoon* At that hour Dr.
Ball ami bis companion were there, but the
witness was not, nor did he come at all. So
that endeavor failed. The promise was made
that affidavits would be procured and that affi
davits would be procured and sent to Boston,
but none have yet been received.
Charges No. 7 and 8, relating to occurrenc
es in (iov. Cleveland's rooms, witnessed by
persons who were watching on the other side
of the street, were affirmed by the witnesses
offered. But the physical conditions of the
place are such as to make their testimony
improbable. The witnesses to charge No. 9
could not be found. To support the tenth
charge a woman was produced who was
Vouched for by a Methodist clergyman . But
her testimony wholly failed to support the
insinuation ' which was the sting of the
charge, and left doubts as to the reliability of
what she did gay. It was noticed concern
ing the witnesses that all the men were Re
publicans, politically opposed to Mr. Cleve
land, and that all of them, men and women, '
appeared to have a strong bins against him.
So, as regards seven out of ten charges which
the public is informed can be substantiated
by "surprisingly full" evidence, there is ab
solutely no evidence forthcoming
These charges, with no indication that the
witnesses in most cases refuse to testify, arc '
in circulation here, and the person who reads i
them may be well moved by their serious as
pect, if he knows nothing of the refutation
which should by right accompany them.
Something of the same sort, I have been
told, has been sent to the Catholic priests.
• Among Mr. Cleveland's friends here there
is a growing indignation at the character of
this warfare upon him. Special efforts have
been made to influence the Rev. Dr. James
Freeman Clarke, because his stand in favor
of Cleveland is significant in this communi
ty, where he is so identified with the anti-
Butler contests of the past and the issues of
honest government to-day, Re has been
plied privatelp and in print. The Blame pa
pers acknowledge the power of his example
by devoting much space to him, and the
Journal, evidently alluding to the letter
above mentioned, says: "We happen to
know that in the interval between Mr.
Clarke's two speeches he has been supplied
with a considerable amount of unpublished
evidence of character and coming from
sources which he would not, under ordinary
circumstances, question for a moment."
But. In his speech in Cambridge last Wed
nesday evening, he renewed bis support of
Cleveland and did not dodge the issue of
his personal character. It is not likely that
any retaliation will be made by Mr. Cleve
land's friends here; certainly there will not
by Republicans, though an intimation of
what they hare available cas been given to
the public by the Jaurna.

His Important Services to Working \
men in the Gubernatorial
W Chair. : ...
A List of Measures "Which Received His Sig
, nature— A - Contrast.
Walter N. Thaycr, president of the New
York trades-assembly, makes an important
address to the workiugmen- of the state.
President Thayer very clearly and with due |
conservatism presents the issue in a : careful j
and thoughtful review. Mr. Thayer repre- ,
sents an organization which, at its last state '
labor convention, showed a" membership of J
over 125,000 trades-union men. The ad- !
dress is as follows:
. To the .Workingmen of the State of New
York: The campaign • just closing has been j
an exciting one in many respects. Many
appeals have been made to the passions and
prejudices of the workingmen by the advo
cates of both presidential candidates. The
time is near at band when labor shall decide
itself whom it shall support. In common
with all sincere believers in the advancement
and protection of \ wage-workers, . I
have watched closely the many
varied phases assumed - as the
right doctrine and policy to be
pursued by labor ir choosing the candidate
most likely to give labor that recognition in
national affairs which its supremacy and
power fully demand. Two years ago repre
sentatives of all different trade organizations
of the state honored me with the presidency of
the state's trade assembly. Tlie constitution
under which I was obligated bound j me to
watch with jealous .care all -encroachments
upon our rights, and I was a swern officer to
protect and insist upon every right consis
tent with the fundamental principles of pro
tection and advancement of labor in the en
joyment of security - and establishment of
laws closely guarding our interests. Indeed,
it is my firm conviction that I would be
criminally unmindful of my oath of office
and the deep interest I take in the interests
of labor if I allowed the misrepresentations
of facts to pass by unnoticed which are con
stantly being made by politicians intended
only to advance the interests of their particu- '
lar candidate and not labor. Every wage
worker of the state, knows beneficial laws
guarding our interests become existing facts
only by slow, persistent, and urgent appeals
to legislative representatives and the execu
tive of the state. It may be necessary for
me to say that in the last two years labor of
this state has progressed six importaut steps
in the advancement of its rights and recog
nition of its supremacy.
1. The establishment of a bureau of labor
2. The prohibition of the manufacture of
tenement honse cigars.
3. Prohibiting the manufacture of woolen
bats in the state prison*.
4. Making laboring men preferred credi
tors in the assignments of estates.
5. Prohibition of child contract labor in
the reformatories and other correctional in
stitutions of the state.
6. Prohibition of contract prison labor.
The value and importance of the first
named bill is known to all wage workers. In
connection with this bill it might be well to
state,by way of comparison, that the national
Democratic congress passed a law establish
ing a national bureau of labor statistics; the
Republican senate dallied with the bill until
it was nearly lost, and was not rescued from j
final defeat until the wage workers through
out the country demanded of the Re
publican senate ? that it be passed.
Under the pressure the senate passed the
bill. Yet though many , months
have elapsed, President Arthur has not ap
pointed the head of the bureau, though re
peatedly urged to do so by our labor repre
sentatives in every state of the Union. Gov.
Cleveland heartily approved and signed our
state bureau bill and appointed the head
within twenty days after the bill became a
law. Two attempts were made to secure the
tenement house cigar bill — but in
each instance "appeals "were taken to the
court of appeals and decisions rendered ad
versely to our Interests and Gov. Cleveland's
approval of the law was set aside. For six
yearn the hatters of the state struggled te se
cure the passage of their bill prohibiting the
manufacture of prison made hats, and in
ISS3 the bill passed a Democratic legislature
and was signed by Gov. Cleveland. The
fourth law is one of vast importance to labor
in these days of financial distress. It com
pels the employer to recognize laboring men
as preferred creditors, thus protecting them
against loss of wages in the settlement of es
tates, a protection long demanded, and has
become an accomplished fact by the signa
ture of "Gov. Cleveland. The fifth is a law
protecting the incorrigible minors in the
penal institutions of the state and
securing to them that recogni
tion deserving Of their years and physical
strength against the greed of contractors.
The sixth bill was the abolishment of con
tract convict labor, a law earnestly and per
sistently fought for for years, and is now
upon our statute books as one of the proudest
achievements of combined labor at the bal
lot tox and the emphatic assertion of their
rights in the hall* of legislation. Here, too,
a striking contrast may be offered. In a
public speech and by bis signature to a con
tract for prison labor James G. Blame has
publicly and by pen approved of this system,
odious and inimical to our best interests.
The present governor of New York state
signed the bill prohibiting contract labor in
the prisons of the state, and did not, like cx
(ii).'. Butler, of Massachusetts, sign a new
hat contract for five years in anticipation of
the early passage of a bill to reduce the num
ber of convicts wofkinjr at any trade to 5 per
These six laws now on our statute books
represent many interests, and considering
that they were accomplished within two years
— a progress that has not been accomplished
in twenty previous yean* l am. sure the
wage workers of the state will heartily agree
with me that we bare done much to make
our power and supremacy felt in the councils
of the state. Two bills passed last year did
not become laws owing to the failure of Gov.
Cleveland to sicm them. ' -,i '■

drivers' bill.
2. The mechanic.- lien law.
The first named bill I have heretofore ex
pressed a belief that it should have been
signed. Yet it has not been disputed that
the bill contained stipulations that would
render it practically inoperative had it be
come a law. Furthermore, then; exists no
doubt but that the railroad companies affected
would have carried an appeal to. the highest
judicial courts, and, subjected to constitu
tional analysis, it would not have stood the
test. Yet the repudiation of the measure by
the president of the Car Conductors and
Drivers' association, in my opinion, should
be conclusive and final, backed as it is by
the resolutions of disapproval by this associ
ation. The mechanics' lien law, when Gov.
Cleveland's disapproving reasons became
known, were f&Uy approved by myself and
other labor advocates: also the frame- of tbe
bill, publicly and unsolicited, indorsed the
governor's action, as did also the recent
Utlca labor convention . - Furthermore
the bill making waee-worders preferred
creditors, practically contains all tbe es
sentialities and benefits of the mechanics'
Hen law. Tbe 5 cent fare bill was never
considered a labor measure: it was never in
troduced or discussed in our state labor con
vention, and bad no labor representatives
on the floor of either house, and I - might
truthfully say it was contrary to the princi
ples of trades-unionism. In this connection
it might be proper to say, by way of compar
ison of motives, that all efforts to pass i bill
prohibiting free passes on the railroads of
the state invariably fails, showing a willing
ness on the part of tbe members of the legis
lature to ride free of cost, which has been
severely denounced by the labor organiza
tions of the state.
It is my sincere belief that in Gov. Cleve
land labor has a true and tried friend. Oar
trade organizations represent all shades of
politics, yet it is my firm conviction ..that the
Democratic party has done more for us than
the Republican party. Surely It goes ua dis
puted that the candidate of the latter party
has signally failed in his long legislative
career to establish one direct principle con
duclve to our interests. This is an estab
lished fact, coupled as it . is with
the support he received of
non-union representative .papers . who
are our foes an d the cm plovers of - help
that loyal trade-union men emphatically re
pudiate. s No better illustration exists than
the 'fact, that -,' three ; thousand union
printers of New York city oppose , the Re
publican candidate on this ground alone,
and what is for their • interest surely repre- j
sents the interest of nil wage-workers.^ Our
supremacy and two <:nitinn are identical
there is no compromise. The candidacy of
Gen.' Benjamin F. Butler, possessing only
the numerical strength of men : ever seeking j
their own advancement over the shoulders
of labor, cannot be .treated in any other :
light but as a bold - ami unscrupulous bar- i
gain, engendered by auimosity and notori
ety, to defeat the cause of labor by one who
himself is monopolistic In bis tendencies.
The candidate in undignified disguise asks j
labor to support him at the sacrifice of j
throwing away valuable votes, to advance i
the interest of labor. This .'.unmitigated \
folly, I hardly believe, will be sanctioned or
even entertained by honest and intelligent
labor at the ballot box. . .-^ V ,'■
_ Wage workers, as a rule, arc not prone to
throw away their votes -a franchise sacred !
and valuable to them as their only weapon
of defense against monopolistic encroach
ments. No one will deny that Gen. Benjamin
F. Butler and James G. Blaiue tire rich men;
and none will deuy that Grovcr Cleveland is,
comparatively speaking, a poor man. These
are the candidates presented to us for our
suffrages. The record of each is now well
known.. Labor should not be influenced
by partisan hostility or swerved by fanciful
pictured drav.n by a hand who portrays dis
tress and poverty in American homes should
the Democratic candidate succeed. The ani
mus is boldly apparent. It is revenge for
the loss of a valuable appointment that at
least one paper in New York city opposes
Gov. Cleveland and endeavors to stir up
enmity against him among the wage workers
by invading workshops to gather and stimu
late this antagonism. And the hand that
writes these innuendoes and manifestations
of antagonism among workingmen is the one
who himself was the keenly disappointed
office seeker. Trusting, and with full know
ledge that intellectual labor will act and cast
its suffrages on the side of right, the issue is
left to their careful and calm deliberation.

[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
~ Chicago, Oct. 30.— At a meeting of the
Grain Receivers' association held thi3 after
noon in the room of the boaTd of trade, the
committee recently appointed to recommend
changes in the names of grades of grain
made, through its chairman, C. E. Culver, a
report which was substantially as follows:
The committee, after a conference with
the officials of the inspection department, and
a careful consideration of the entire ques
tion, concluded to advance that no change
be made in what is known as contract
grades of grain. They advise the striking
out of the word "rejected" where it occurs in
the rules of inspection as applied to wheat,
and substitute therefor the words "No. 3;"
also to strike out the word "rejected" where
it occurs in the rules that apply to the inspec
tion of rye and oats and substitute therefor
the words "No, 3:" 'also to establish new
grades to be called No. 2 and No. 2 yellow
corn to take places respectively of the grades
called"blgb mixed" and"new high mixed;"
to establish a grade No. 3to include corn
now classified as new mixed and the better
class of which at present is inspected re
jected; also to establish a grade of corn,
which shall include corn of the lower quali
ties that are at present classified as rejected.
As to oats the report recommends the estab
lishment of two new grades to be called No.
3 white oats.
The committee appointed to confer with
the elevator men, to try and get a reduction
in storage rates, reported that they bad not
completed their work and were given further
time. The same committee, through J. M.
VVanzer, its chairman, recommended that
the Richards system of tranferrine and
weighing grain was the best in use and bad
given satisfaction wherever tried, and moved
that it be adopted by all the railroads, as the
shippers were favoring it George Clark
asked to be excused from the same commit
tee, and T. S. Francis was appointed in bis
U'h^rr to /*«' it.

The announcement is now made that

to all the popular amusement companies of

house which the enterprise and public spirit
of some of. its citizens has secured, should
be so managed as to be a source of benefit
instead of detriment to the city, seems at
last about to be realized. ,?. . : . : w
The new opera house haa been most elab
orately and tastefully decorated and will be
at once seated with fine folding opera chairs
making it second to none outside of the
three great cities. It will 6eat fifteen hun
dred people, has a large ,i and roomy stage
with an abundance of scenery, and its
acoustic properties are not excelled by any.
If properly managed as it is sure to be now,
adjoining towns •will continually furnish
their quota of - attendance at our
most meritorious entertainments. During
the season, which opened last evening with
the appearance of the charming soubrette
Mattie Vickers, a number of the finest com

ance here, some of which we are not at. pres
ent writing permitted to speak definitely, arc
among the most noted in the land and will
give our amusement loving people as fine
advantages in opera and drama as the cities
of St. Paul or Minneapolis can furnish. The
owners of the house are to be congratulated
upon having placed its destinies in such able
hands. Now let the citizens patronize mer
itorious performances and we will not only
show the world that we know what good en
tertainments are but we will elevate the tone '
so that snide shows will give Mankato the go

Sold ir/ni)i.
One of our very nice citizens was very
badly sold on Thursday evening. Good men
have been sold before and will sympathize
with this latest victim. Strictly virtuous
himself, any action which had the appearance
of evil he beheld with horror. It fell out on
this wise: He had rented a suite of rooms
to a single gentleman, and while they were
being furnished and fitted a lady friend had
been present much of the time superintend
ing the same. Late on Wednesday evening
the indignant landlord appealed to the police,
stating that a young woman was occupying
the apartments mentioned with this young
gentleman tenant, and he indignantly pro
tested against it. Officers Young and Blake
at once proceeded to the spot and
awakening the supposed lothario cate
chised him on the subject of the presence
of a female in his apartments. He admitted
the fact, but justified on the ground of the
lady being bis lawful wife. Incredulous, the
officers demanded a sight of some docu
mentary evidence, when a marriage certifi
