It will doubtless be a matter of surprise to our vigilant police authorities when they read in the Globe this morning an account of the brutal prize fight at Merriam Park yesterday afternoon. It is a veiy singular fact that a prize fight is one thing a police man never gets track of until it is over and all the principals and their abettors are safely out of the way. When a slugging match is to take place everybody else that cares to know anything about it generally hears of it. The sporting men always man age to hear of it in time to make up their pools. The newspaper reporters never fail to get wind of it in time to be on the ground and secure full and accurate reports. But iiom some mysterious cause it almost inva riably occurs that the police are stricken with a peculiar paralysis of all the senses just about the time the mill is to owue off. They can neither see nor hear nor smell anything until it is all over. It may possibly be alleged in extenuation of the dereliction of St. Paul's police au thorities in regard to yesterday's fight that there is no state law to punish prize fight ing. It cannot be said, however, that the laws permit one man to maul another Into a jelly state; nor can it be urged that the brutal scene witnessed at Merriam Park was not a breach of the peace and a gross desecration of the Sabbath. When Minne apolis and Winnipeg send their sluggers out to invade St. Paul's municipal territory to tarnish the good name of our city and its reputation for orderly conduct by en gaging in an act of disgraceful brutality, there ought to have been local pride enough in the policemen to have protected the good name and have vindicated the honor of the city whose guardians they are. The people of this city pay their policemen to discharge a plain duty, and if they are incapable of per forming the duty required of them and for which they are paid, it is time that the city was securing the services of others who are capable of its performance. It is a duty hat the mayor owes to himself and to the people of thfa city whose confidence he en joys, to at once thoroughly investigate tho reasons why yesterday's prize fight was permitted to occur within the city limits, without interference from the police. And it is also a duty he owes to himself and the public to see that steps are taken to prevent the recurrence of events so disgraceful In their character and so humiliating to the liner feelings of the best classes of our cl;i zens. GOING TO PIECES. The New York papers give the details of the meeting in that city last week of the members of the American Wall Paper asso ciation. This association has been the most successful pool ever organized, but accord ing to the reports of the New York papers it is now torn by internal dissension, which will probably lead to an early disso lution. Organized ill 1879, and embracing all the leading manufacturers of the coun try, the American Wall Paper association has been for the past six years the most powerful and successful monopoly in Amer ica. The fact that at the present time there are but three manufacturers of wall paper not members of the association shows the absolute .manner in which this organi zation controls the wall paper market. The methods of the association, which have been as foliows, go to show the cast-iron rules by which its members were bound: "Pooling arrangements were made for a year. To the general pool fund each member contributed a sum of money as forfeit to the other members in case he violated the agreement entered into. This sum was apportioned to each member, at first arbitrarily, later on the basis of capital invested iu business. Each associate member was also required to de posit with the commissioner a stipulated sum, either in money or bonds, to insure his conforming to all the rules. A scale of prices for certain grades of goods, classified from the finest of gold papers to the cheap kitchen papers, was fixed, and a scale of discounts for the large purchasers in the trade was arbitrarily made. At these figures each member was bound to sell his goods if he sold them at all. He could get prices above the figures if he could; below them he could not go. A similar scale was also fixed for the trade and each dealer bound himself by a written contract not to sell be low the prices fixed by the pool. The pen alty for the violation of the agreement was a prohibition from purchasing any goods made by any member of the pool in the future or until relieved from this ban by the associa tion. Protection as to card rates was thus absolutely assured. Now as to the profits. To the association's pool commissioner each member made a report at stated periods of the goods manufactured, of the sales made, and of the profits on the business daring he time covered by the report. Tfye profits went into a common pool, and were divided among the members, the division being made pro rata on the basis of business done, so that each member, whether he had a successful year or not, was assured of a certain percentage of profits based upon the capital invested and the value of his output in the previous year. With the renewal of the pool on the 1st of July of each year there was a readjustment of percentages in the division of profits for the coming year." The dispute has been as to the manner in which the profits should be divided, and the object of the present meeting is to agree if possible on the division of profits for the year beginning with the first of next month. ■ VISION. A pretty little story comes from Centra lia, in Illinois, in which a woman's strange hallucination leads to a peculiar sequel. The wife of a prominent local lawyer, whose home is a picture of loveliness and plenitude, had yearned for years to have her heart filled with the sunshine of baby love, but in#vain. After a married life of many years, which had been unmarred by regret or displeasure except the absence of a child to bless their union, the husband and wife concluded to brighten up their home by adopting a baby girl if a suitable one could be found. One night two years ago, Mrs. Casey, for that is the lady's name, was visited by a sister-in-law. In the absence of the husband the two ladies roomed together and before going to sleep chatted over the proposed adoption. When the conversation was over Mrs. Casey was electrified by a vision of childish loveliness at her side. A baby girl with large brown eyes and auburn ringlets lay there smiling and cooing* 'and silently supplicat ing for a good-night kiss. The lady insensibly stooped over to caress the beautiful vision and it vanished. Being wide awake, very naturally the incident made a deep impression on her mind. A few days later a stranger appeared at the home of Mrs. Casey bearing a little girl in his arms. He explained that he had heard of the desire of the huSband and wife to adopt a child and he had brought them his only daughter, as he felt incompetent to give her the advantages of a cheerful home and a good education, which he was anxious that she should have. From the moment the stranger had entered the door the lady had been staring fixedly at the child in his arms. There were the same brown eyes, the auburn locks and the smiles of the child she had seen in the vision. As the little one was placed on the floor by the father the pent-up feelings of the woman, who had all these years longed for the pos session of such a precious jewel, gave way to an uncontrollable rapture. "This is my child," she exclaimed as she folded the baby to her arms. The baby returned the kisses and caresses, and then Mrs. Casey explained the cause of her emotion. The adopted daughter was named Visiox. That was two years ago. It now transpires that the adopted child is the great granddaughter of Commodore Oliver Perry, the illus trious naval hero. GOING TO SHUT DOWN. It is announced that after the first of next month Mr. Cleveland and his cabi net officers will decline to receive personal visits from office-seekers or their friends. This is an innovation on long-established methods, and there may be some doubt whether the president and his cabinet will find it practicable to enforce the plan they have adopted. It will meet with violent opposition from the professional politicians, and they may raise such an outcry against it that the president will be compelled to abandon it. And yet there is no reason why the mass of the people should not up hold Mr. Cleveland in this determination. It is impossible for the heads of the execu tive departments to attend decently to the more serious business of the government when they . are compelled to give up a chief part of their time and energy to considering the claims of office-seekers. The continual im- x-HE ST. PATJL DAILY GLOBE, MONDAY MOBNING, JUNE 22, 1885. portunltles and demands of applicants and their political and personal friends are an injury to the public by the absorption of the time of tho president and the cabinet offi cers. There should be some system adopted by which this outrageous interference with the public interests should be stopped. It Is true that it is necessary to devote a cer tain portion of the time of the president and the heads of departments to an investi gation and consideration of appointments. But let it be done in a business-like way by allowing those who are responsible for the appointments to Impart the information that is required. For illustration, what would be thought of a board of railway directors who would devote their time chielly to considering the appointment ot* employes of every grade. And yet the president and cabinet are nothing more or less than the directors of the national government, and it is expected that they should exhibit tho same business sagacity that men display in the ordinary business concerns of every-day life. LIABLE FOR DAMAGES. The Iowa supreme court has decided that a hotelkeeper who receives guests, knowing that there is a contagious disease in his house, is liable to damages to any guest who may contract the disease. A lady went to a hotel and was taken down with small pox. She caught the disease from a guest who was in the house when she went there. The laudiord knew that there was a case of small-pox in his house when he admitted the plaintiff. When the latter got well she sued for §5,000 damages and obtained a verdict. It appeared that before going to the hotel the plaintiff had heard a rumor that there was siuail-pox there. The de fendant put in the plea that the p!f#ntiff was guilty of contributory negligence in not making inquiry as to the truth of the rumor. On this point the supreme court says: "By keeping his hotel open for busi ness the landlord iu effect represented to all travelers that it was a reasonably safe place at which to stop, and ho is hardly in a posi tion now to insist that the plaintiff, who accepted and acted on this representation and was injured because of its untruth, shall be precluded from recovering for the injury on the ground that she might by fur ther inquiry have learned of Its falsity." The court held that tho plaintiff was enti tled to damages, not only for the physical and mental suffering she endured while sick, but also for the marks left by the dis ease. m BLEEDING IRELAND. The United Ireland gives a gloomy ac count of the present industrial condition of Ireland, and still a gloomier forecast of what it is to be unless a radical change takes place In tha near future. Biank stag nation is staring everybody in the face. A settled feeling of despair seems to have pos sessed the people. And yet the English government continues to impose upon them a frightful burthen of taxation. It is not surprising that the Parnell party in par liament was willing to form any sort of a coalition whereby they might secure relief for Ireland. It was the drowning man's clutch at a straw when they formed an al liance with the Tories and'it is possible that their hope in that direction is to be doomed to as severe a disappointment as it was in the Gladstone administration. The United Ireland says: "Another stand for the bare life will soon have to be made in Lie land. The existing system of land and gov ernment will have to be ended, and not merely mended, before there can be much improvement. Should there be an in different harvest, the judicial rents will collapse all in a heap the next Novem ber gale, and cannot be paid in any event beyond next May, if the present prices for Irish staples of produce do not grow better (and they may very easily grow worse). Irish industry is being bled to death through every artery. Think of it! It pays some fifteen millions of pounds per annum still in rents to men who have never made a blade of grass grow (five millions of it at least to absentees who never return a farthing of it to the land). There are eight millions of pounds more paid in im perial taxation, and it is proposed to tack on another three-quarters of a million, as Ireland's share of the war credit to be spilled out on the steppes of Turcomania in fight ing Komaeoff. There are fifteen millions more poured out in buying English goods, three-fourths of which could just as well be made at home, while our artisans stand idle and our laborers starve. Could any country healthily stand so deadly a drain? — above all, a country of which only three millions of the poorest acres are devoted to feeding men, and twelve millions of her choicest acres are reserved for food of beasts." m i THE GRAND JURY ABOLISHED. Nebraska has made a radical reform in Its criminal procedure, and whatever may be said for or against the reform, its adoption is a very important step and its workings will be watched with interest. It has abol ished the regular grand jury system and has adopted in its place the information sys tem. Tn a proceeding by information the public prosecutor determines whether or not an accused or suspected person shall be prosecuted. The change only affects the beginning of the prosecution, for after the action is begun by the prosecutor the pro cedure is substantially the same as under the grand jury system. The Nebraska law can only operate in the state courts, as the constitution of the United States secures to persons accused of crime in the federal courts the right of having the charge against them passed upon by a grand jury. The law sweeps away a venerable institution which has been regarded as essential to the liberty and security of the citizen. As to the expediency of the reform adopted in Nebraska there will be a vast difference of opinion. !■ The Democratic convention in Brown county appears to have voiced the views of Central Dakota in its denunciation of the di vision of the territory on the 46th parallel, and the main object of the Sioux Falls con stitutional oonvention generally. A promi nent citizen of Central Dakota sheds some light on the situation in an interview with a Globe reporter. From the tone of the con vections so far held, regardless of party, his prophecy that the convention will collapse of its own dead weight will doubtless be verified. Whether an injunction would have tho effect of preventing tho call for the convention being- carried out in the face of the legis lative enactment providing for the convention is a legal problem which the courts may be called upon to solve. In any event the whole business is likely to prove abortive of the ob ject aimed at. ■ The Globe takes pleasure in publishing Mr. Drake's communication this morning, in which he proceeds to further enlighten the public in regard to tho St. Paul & Sioux City railway land grant. The Globe, however, does not agree with Mr. Drake In his opinion that the discussion of this question through the press has had a damaging effect. On tiie contrary, it has given the publio a better un derstanding of the situation than it has heretofore had. Facts have been brought to igh t which were not known, and while no body has been harmed a great deal of good has been done. Facts never hurt anybody, except it bo somebody that ought to be hurt. The position of an independent newspaper is to gather foots and to open to discussion any or all questions that pertain to tho public in terest. The Chicago Inter-Ocean suggestB that a national civil service academy be founded, beexiag the same relation to the civil admin istration that West Point and Annapolis aca demies bear to the army and navy, reapeot lvely. There has been for Borne years in operation in Fiance a school of that kind. And the Univertiiy of Michigan has an ad mirably conducted dupartment embracing all the essential studies of a Urn-class civil service academy. Doubtless such a school under government control would be very useful, but there is no reason why the work could not bo done as woll at any good colloge I or university In the country. -*«- Prof. Riley has boon investigating tho in sects whioh have boon ravuginy tho wheat Holds of California, and identities two old friend* of the entomologists, tho malanapua devastator and tho eaUpteaut dlfferentiaiis. Those awful visitors are more terrlblo than an army with banners or tho Cluncso with cheap labor. They have premuturelv harvest cd tho orop on the coast, and are now looking for other fields und other wheat growers to conquer. They may be regarded at the allies of the spring wheat raisers of the No. 1 hard belt, but labor here is not so scnroo that they will be Invited to participate iu tho harvest. A mass meeting of Indignant woll owners in St. Louis pourod out their vials of wrath ou the city authorities for issuing an order last week directing that all the wolls in tho city be filled up. Similar blindness to peril is notice able in every community whore mortified ma terial is allowed to accumulate and diffuse its pestilential breath through largo districts. The business of a well-organized board of health consists largely in Instructing tho peo ple as to Trhat actually brings sickness and death into their I'umiiics.and how easily by cer tain wise and simple precautions such costly calamities can bo prevented. It appears by tho Globe's Washington specials that at a cabinet meeting it was re solved to force tho settlers on the Winnebago and Crow Creek reservation* to vacate, at tho point of the bnj'onet if necessary. It would seem as if this government was great aud good enough to deal leniently with settlers who occupied these lands under the assur ance of aa executive order that tho occupan cy was legitimate. m The whole number of visitors to tho New Orleans exposition was 1,168,840. The show was open nearly as long as the Centennial exhibition at Philadelphia, which was visited by U,91U,90(i persons. This explains tho cause of the financial failure. of toe New Or leans enterprise. — — *»• The primrose is Miss ClJrrVBLAJaj'S adopted flower aud is to be hand-painted ou the back of tho copy of her book which is to bo pre sented to Queen Victoria.

Three Milwaukee Misses and Their Guardians Very Mad. Special to the Globe. Milwaukee, June 21. — The tempest in a teapot which was started ' early in the week by the refusal of three young lady graduates of the Milwaukee Female college to graduate has broadened its circles until now the whoic social atmosphere is in a state of violent agitation. The three young ladies, Misses Paige, Parker and Griffon, persisted hi their refusal to take part in the commencement exercises unless the execu tive committee reconsidered what they claimed was ' an unjust discrimination. The committee did not see fit to reconsider, and the graduating class of '85 was reduced to Misses Butcher and Iibwry, The guar dians of the seceding members of the class, Capt. David Vance, W. B. Parker and Mrs. .Jennie S. Paige, united in a card giving their side of the story in contradiction to tho statements made by Prof. Farrar, principal of the college. In this they say: "The young ladies were informed that no essays would be read in public. The matter re mained in that shape until last Friday, when THE THEEE YOUNG LADflSS were informed by one of the pupils that two of the class had been selected to read their essays and had been privately practicing. They say further that when the .young ladies questioned Prof. .Farrar they were told they were meddling in what was none of their business. in some manner the chnroh has become mixed up in the squabble, and it is now alleged that pupils who belong, to St. Paul's Episcopal church have found in times past great difficulty in obtaining leave of absence to assist at church fairs, while Students of the Jimnauuel Presby terian church have obtained tha coveted leave with a God bless you for their zeal in the cause of the church. The trustees, too, do not escape criticism. Their action in sustaining Prof. Farrar is variously com mented, and not aiVays in terms of appro bation. In truths there is the makin what Paddy would call a '*broth of a row," and no one seems inclined to interfere to spoil so good a prospect of fun. A Case of Contract Labor. Special to tho Globe. New Yoi'K, June 91. — The first case un der the United .States law of Feb. > . prohibiting the importation of contract la bor came up in Castle Carder, yestei The City of Richmond brought over nine girls and one man who had been hired to work in a spinning mill. The girls said they hail been spinners in the mill of Dun bar, MoMasters $ Co. at Guilford and other mills in Belfast, lreian 1. They had signed contracts to emigrate to the mills of Dun bar, MeAlester & Co. in Greenwich, Wash ington county, N. Y.

REGENT SPORTING EVENTS. Burke, the * 'Irish Lad," Expresses His Opinion of Sullivan. Chicago In the Lead In the League Base Ball Contest. Burke's Opiuiun of John E. Special to tho Globe. Chicago, June '21. — Since his meeting Wfth John L., Jack Burke has continued in Injg in fclie driving park just as heniight have done hndhis contest with the champion faUeii'' through or been postponed. Ilia ob- ject In so doing Is to maintain ins present perfect condition, so tliat he may enjoy every possible advantage In his contest with Mitchell, which will probably take place at Battery D armory within the next ten days. Mitchell arrived from San Francisco to-day, ami will at once arrange with I'm son Davies for his meeting with the Irish lad. Jack came in from the driving park yester- day for a "bit of a stay in town," as he termed his visit, and received the cou- gratulatiooB of many of ins friends who had not seen him since his contest on June 13. "Judging from your own experience, what do you think of Sullivan, Jack?" In- quired a Globe reporter^ "Well," replied the Irish lad, ••! have faced lots of good ones, both in this country and England, but not one of them can compare in any way with the champion. I have heard it said that iie is not clever; that it is only his im- mense weight and pow**r that enable him to rush his men down. Now, I say that Sulli- van is as clever with his hands and head and as quick upon his feet as any sparrer in the country to-day. lie. is opt only powerful but his guard is line, and it takes a man who has acquired a deal of skill iu the business to stop or get away from his blows. Ordinary tactics will not do with Sullivan; he knows them all and seems to anticipate them, and a blow which would send another man to grass only brings a smile to the champion's lips. It is a wicked smile, though, and one that made me a bit nervous when I saw it light up his eyes after I had hit him several times in the face." The Coney Island "Derby. New York, June 21. — The following is a description of the Coney Island Derby race yesterday: Duffy, the California jockey, was determined not to be left on Tyrant, as in his iast race. He plunged away live time3 in false starts before the ilag dropped. Getting away in close run- ning order, Peakea set the music to a quick step on Brockwood, St. Augustine, Tyrant, Ileva and Joe Cotton pushing on in a dark bunch, as named. Bi'ockwood kept his shoulders to the open, ail being in the above shape to the stand, half a mile from the start. Entering on the even mile Brock- Wood raced on the van, with St. Augustine at his neck, Tyrant and Joe Cotton all lapping in the bunch. On the turn for the back stretch Brockwood pulled just clear of the pack, St. Augustine second, Tyrant, Ileva aud Joe Cotton lap- ping. Brockwood remained in the van for a mile from the start, when Duffy called on Tyrant and immediately a great shout arose *;Tyrant lends." Tyrant's reign was very brief. McLaughlin brought Joe Cotton forward on the long turn to the home stretch, when a louder shout went up: "Joe Cotton Is in front; he will win." A tough battle came on the home stretch, Tyrant galloping neck and heck with Joe to the last furlong, when Joe pulled ahead, McLaughlin sending him in a comparatively easy winner, a length ahead of Tyrant, Brockwood third, St. Augustine fourth.

The game was played yesterday, as per agreement, and the "Never Get Lefts'' changed their name to "Never Get Theres" by a score of 81 to 11. ANOTHER GAME. An interesting game of ball was played yesterday afternoon at Leip's park, White Bear lake, between the St. Paul Unions and Minneapolis & Manitoba boilermakers, which residted In an easy victory for the Unions by a score of 16 to 7. In the National league contest for the pennant there was a change last week in the position of the clubs, Chicago forging to ihe front by not losing a same, and clos- ing the week at the head of the list. New York dropped to second, but it* is a tight race between the two mentioned. Tiie tail- enders, the Detroits, took a game from the St. Louis, and the Bostons broke their long record of defeat by their old antagonists, (Providence) by taking from them a game. The Bostons, however, have been crippled for several weeks and were compelled to put Whitney in a held position, in Which it is said he was a "stick." The manager of the St. Lotus club fired the le It-fielder, Lewis, and fined him $100 for insubordina- tion, on Friday. The St. Louis-Buffalo game at St. Louis was postponed on ac- count of rain. Of the American association clubs the St. Louis still lead. The Cineinnatis go from third to second place, exchanging with Pittsburg. Lou isvi lies and Athletics con- tinue In the same positions, while the Met- ropolitans take the Baltlmo res' position at the foot of the list. The St. Louis lost Bret game to Brooklyn during the week. on the 15th the Indianapolis club sold out bodily to the1 Detroit league manage- ment, aud this action virtually ended the Western league, the only two club; .remain- ing being the Milwaukee and Keokuks, trie two mentioned playing a game on Thutsd >y in Milwaukee.

She Refuses to Allow Her Picture to be Printed. Speoial to the Globe. Nkw Yohk, June 21.— The publishers of Miss Cleveland's book have ordered several copies to be bound expressly for presenta- tion to the surviving ladies of the White house who preceeded Miss Cleveland and also Queen Victoria. These copies are said to be exact counterparts of those in- tended for Miss Cleveland. The floral design of the cover, which represents a spray of the primrose, is in the case of these presentation copies to be hand painted. The ladies who will receive a copy are Mrs. .J rimes K. Polk of Nashville; Mrs. Phillips, formerly Mrs. Betty Taylor Bliss of Vand- ridge, Va.; Mrs. John Tyler of Virginia; Mrs. Harriet Lane Johnson of Baltimore; Mrs. Martha Johnson Patterson, Mrs. Grant, Mrs. Hayes, Mrs. Garfield and Mrs. McElroy. Mrs. Phillips, though the daugh- ter of a Whig, President Taylor, is herself a Democrat, and therefore a majority of tho former ladies of the White house are of tho same political mind as the present host- ess. Unlike many of her predecessors, Miss Cleveland is hostile to the custom of publishing pictures of the hostess of the White house, and her face has been set against TnE USE OF nER PICTUBE in any illustrated paper or indeed in any form. The only publication in which her portrait has been used is in The Ladies of the White House, and so particular was she m regard to that that the artist who made the photograph was ordered to de- stroy the negative. A Philadelphian made the engraving which represents Miss Cleve- land as she appears to-day. The publish- ers of her book would have much liked to use their picture of her, and the author of The Ladies of the White House had given permission in case of Miss Cleveland's con- sent, but her refusal ended tjie matter and her book appears without it. It is said that Miss Cleveland dedicates her book to "her countrymen in schools and colleges." Ad- vance sheets of the work, at the suggestion of friends of Miss Cleveland in New York who have had charge ot the publication, have been submitted to literary critics. The book is promised for the 25th, and meantime it is to be published in England. THE DEMENTED TRAGEDIAN. Friendly Acts Pre vent McCullousrli's Reappearance ou tiie Stage. Special to the Globe. New York, June 21. — The non-appear- ance of the disabled John McCullough in a theatrical benefit performance, wherein he was to personate Brutus in the forum scene of "Julius Caesar," has given rise to con- siderable gossip, much of which is mis- taken. The tragedian is now in good physical health, but his dementia is not in the least abated, and he wanders about the hotels and streets in aimless disquietude. When he was asked by Plympton and Levick, the actor3 wrho got up this entertainment, to take a part in it, he readily assented, for. it is his mania to reappear on the stage. There was at no time a confident expectation that he would keep his engagement, and so Plympton un- derstudied the oration of Brutus. The af- ternoon of the advertised exhibition of Mc- Cullough he renewed his promise, but dazedly seemed to have a notion that he was going to play "Richelieu," but being told that Brutus was his part, he went to his room in the Sturtevant house to study the required passage. He was at his task when Capt. Conners, his former manager, called on him for the purpose of saving him from the ordeal of an almost certain breakdown. So strong indeed was the belief in his incapacity that in case he went on the stage Plympton was to have stood costumed in the wings to take his place at an instant's notice. Conner did not undertake to dissuade the actor from his purpose, but adroitly led the conversa- tion to other topics, lured him out to a din ner, kept his mind concerned witii non theatrical subjects, and thus got him past the hour when, in the Star theatre, the audience was violently hissing the announcement that he had not arrived. Several mutual friends were in the plot and they exerted themselves to di- vert McCullough from his engagement. The place of then effort was a secluded apart- ment in tiie St. James hotel, where they succeeded in keeping him a willing and un- suspecting captive until past midnight. Then he casually looked at his watch witn the air of one trying to recall something aud remarked: ' 'ft seems to me that I was to have played to-night, but maybe I was mistaken. I'll go to bed, anyhow," and he did. » CROP REPORTS. Splendid Prospect in the Province oi Manitoba. Special to the Globe. Winnipeg, June 21. — The Manitoba de partment of agriculture has issued tiie first bulletin of the season, based on the returns of 500 correspondents, showing that the weather during seeding was exceedmgly favorable, that the season is two weeks earlier than the average and the summer fallowing largely increased. Total land plowed is 51 '.(,735 acres, compared with 444,915 in 1884; spring wheat acreage is 857,013, compared with 307,020 in 1834; oats acreage is 151,368, com- pared with 172,345 in 1S84. Both crops are reported to be in the most favorable conditions in all portions of the province. Ample rain fell during the seed- ing to give grain a good start and keep up a continuous growth. There is every indica- tion of an early harvest. The total product of wheat expected is 7,179,531 bushels, leaving a surplus of 5,075,000 bushels for export. Other crops are reported to be in a satisfactory condition. Hay promises an abundant yield. Live stock came through tho winter in a fair condition and free of disease. In every branch of farming the ' prospects are better than any previous year . in the history of the province. The construc tion of branch railways during the summer will give an additional impetus to farming operations, and much additional land is being broken in consequence. ■ —»- Monopoly of Distilleries. Special to the Globe. Ottawa, Ont., June 21. — A memoran- dum has been received here by members of the federal parliament protesting against gome of the provisions of the act to amend the consolidated inland revenue act of 1883. One of the clauses of the bill in j question is as follows: "After the 1st of July, 1887, no spirits subject to excise shall : be entered for consumption which have not ' been manufactured for at least twelve ' months, and after the 1st day of July, 1890. '' no such spirits shall be entered for con- ' sumption which have not been manufac- ' tured for at least two years." The memo- ■ randum holds that this provision, if ac- ' cepted, would render it impossible in the ! whole dominion to start a new distillery, and those ' actually in existence would J hayd a complete and protected monopoly as a uew establishment, uuless it , could command an enormous capital, could ' not enter on the fabrication of spirits if it show id not get back some of its disburse- ' mints, which are always heavy before two J years. There are, it is said, only five dis- ,-] tilleries in Canada, all in the province of i Ontario, and in 1879 a pool was established 1 with a view to determine uniform prices . for each cf their products, which are about 78 per cent, above those asked in other ] countries, where labor and raw material are 1 just as costly as in Canada. It is also said i that in the province of Quebec some capi- < talists are ready not later than next year to 1 break up the monopoly on the Ontario dis- 1 tilleries, provided such legislation as this < does not fetter them in their project. < -*_ ' As illustrative of the various and uncer- < tain character of Dakota politics it is no- , ticcd that at the Republican convention in Sanborn county last Saturday some of the leading members were prominent Demo- '. crats. At the Republican convention in ' that county last fall the chairman of the Democratic central committee was a dele gate and seconded a motion that only Re- ■ publicans be nominated. ■, i STILLWATEB NEWS, Destruction by a Wind Storm- -CnU* dren's Day Duly Celebrated. The Sisters of St. Joseph Fair— Other* Gatherinj£S--New3y Items. more "Destruction. The hurricane of Saturday evening which was referred to in yesterday morn ing's Olobk, proved quite destructive in the city. The boiler house belonging to the Northwestern Manufacturing and Cal company, north of 0. N. Nelson Luinbei company's mill, had its side stove in and the roof blown off. A large chimney oa the Yorks house on Second street, occu pied by Charles Bardwell, was blown down, and part of tne shingles blown from tin roof. A number of beautiful shade and other trees were overturned, while limbs oi trees were scattered in all directions. Whil« Senator Castle was driving home in his carriage the wind overturned it near St. Michael's church, and the senator got a badly bruised face. A like accident hap pened to A. Kuhn, his buggy being over turned, and he was yesterday limping badly. For a time it looked as if there was to be a regular cyclone, but the heavy wind lasted only a short time. Billboards and fences were prostrated, boards were car ried a considerable distance and windows suffered much. The main body of the storm passed northeast of this, and in Ma rine town and on the Wisconsin side of the St. Croix it must have been very severe. At South Stillwater the new skating rinh was moved from Its foundation, and the floor has now quite an angle. - Fences were blown down and Keswick suffered consid erable loss about chic ken yard. The dam ages in the city and suburbs will amount to several thousand dollars. Children's Day. A memorable day was yesterday at th» Presbyterian church. It was children's day and the children rere.embered it and turned out in full force to enjoy and minis ter to the joy of the congregation. They occupied seats in front of the pulpit. The service opened with the Lord's prayer, the children's voices leading. The program of the music was the songs of the Sabbath school led by the church choir, Mr. Horace Davis presiding at the organ in place of Prof. Werner, who was absent on a briel vacation. Addresses were delivered bj the superintendent, W. T. Penlee, upou the Hindrances and Helps in Sabbath School Work, and by the pastor. Rev. Dr. Carroll, upon the Winning Word in tin Work. The school, at the close of the ser vice, was presented with a new library, the gift of Mrs. Isaac Staples. A contribution was also made by a lady for providing fur ther music books. The school evidently is a live one. and under the wise and efficient leadership of its superintendent and officers the future of the school will present larger results and many more sheaves. METHODIST CHURCH. Children's day was kept in this church, both morning and evening, the children providing the whole program. At the ser vices they illustrated God's gifts to man, taking up various subjects, which were rendered by verse and song. At the morn ing service their subjects were Rain, Rivers, the Sea, Storms and the Whole Earth. At the evening service Trees, Fruits, Flowers, Birds and Heaven. The Seasons also were appropriately represented. There were several recitations and the singing was ap propriate to the day. The children showed careful training, and the large congregation present was much edified. Mrs. Jenks de serves the highest commendation for the manner in which the seasons were pro duced. The church was elaborately deco rated and many of the decorations were de cidedly unique. One decoration of letters of white wove clover was much admired. The day will be long remembered by thos« who were present. New Books at the Library.

Since yesterday the lake has fallen con siderably, the heavy north wind doing muci towards that result. The St. Croix Savings and Loan associ ation held its regular monthly meeting on Saturday evening when several loans were made at a good figure. George Gorham left for Portland on Sat urday evening; also George F. Sabin and wife. Of the large number that left last week the greater number will remain the full limit of their tickets. Extensive preparations are being made for the fair which begins at Music hall this week for the benefit of the Msennerchor so ciety, who are making an effort to get up a hall for themselves. Wednesday being the Frenchmen's na tional holiday, will be duly observed by the French citizens of Stillwater, of whom the city has many, by a picnic on the Somerset road, some seven miles east of the city. They intend to have a very pleasant time. The dance which will be given by the citizens for the benefit of J. W. Pitman, who lost so heavily by the flood of last week, in Music hall on Wednesday evening next, promises to be a big affair, as the committee has disposed of a large number of tickets. The police should enforce the dog ordi nance. There are some hundreds of useless curs running the streets with no license tags, and rendering it unsafe for persons to be abroad. They run at horses, and there have been several narrow escapes through runaways caused by these snarling whelps. Some of them are hardly worth the powder and shot that will be required to end their career, as some of the force may require to empty several seven-shooters at them and finish the job with a club. Let the curs be exterminated. An excellent program has been prepared and will be rendered this evening at the Catholic fair at the roller skating rink. There will be vocal and instrumental music and the drum corps will also be present. The exhibition of useful and ornamental articles for sale or to be disposed of by chance, will all be in place. Many articles of rare value and beauty are now shown, and- some of the work shown reflects the greatest credit upon the Sisters of St. Jo seph and the other ladies. A beautiful oil painting, presented from St. Paul, is worthy of close examination, it being a fine work of art. The ladies will endeavor to make it pleasant for those who may attend. The fair will extend over.the Fourth of July. m Dangerous Red Skins. Special to the Globe. Little Rock, Ark., June 21.— Serious ipprehensions of trouble with the Arapahoe ind Cheyenne Indians has been felt at the Darlington agency, Indian territory, on ac count of the temporary withdrawal of troops from the St. Reno garrison. A-dvice from Darlington says: "The Arapahoes and Cheyeunes liave been in a dangerous mood for some time, threatening the life of Agent Dyer md stating that they were going to clean ->ut the agency and fire its buildings. Their threats and the knowledge that they are en tirely able to execute them iu the absence of sufficient military force to hold them in meek have created much uneasiness here. Ihe arrival of a detachment of the Fifth -ravalry has, however, relieved the past fear ;>f any present serious result." * . — The east-bound shipment of cattle into Montana Saturday, via the Northern Pacific, was 800 head, and west-bound 400 head. i ,. - D. L. Wilber, local agent for the North ern Pacific road at Jamestown, Dak., was at headquarters Saturday.
