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
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
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

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.
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-
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
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
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."

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
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

body has been harmed a great deal of good
has been done. Facts never hurt anybody,

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,
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

do not escape criticism. Their action in

mented, and not aiVays in terms of appro
bation. In truths there is the makin

Jack came in from the driving park yester-

as he termed his visit, and received the cou-

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
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.

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

Arrangements are progressing for the
Fourth of i July regatta in St. Paul, which,
it is expected, will make it equal to any of
its predecessors. The crews have not been
Settled upon up to the present time, though
the matter has been pretty well canvassed,
and a kind of understanding reached. All
this may be changed, however. In a few
days the official announcement will bo
made as to who is to row and the different
Mayor Rice is to make the formal pre-
sentation of the mayor's cup, and Gen.lt.
W. Johnson has kindly consented to pre-

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
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.
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.
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. <

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.
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.

Extensive preparations are being made
for the fair which begins at Music hall this
week for the benefit of the Msennerchor so

hall for themselves.
Wednesday being the Frenchmen's na

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

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

and will be rendered this evening at the
Catholic fair at the roller skating rink.
There will be vocal and instrumental music

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.
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."
