It devolved upon St. Paul to enlighten
the interstate commerce committee on the j
transportation question from the popular
standpoint in the Northwest. Minneapolis
gave the committee but a contracted Idea
of the monopoly side of the question at is
sue, as none but mill men, manufacturers
and elevator men were called. Of course,
they were of the favored few ami found no
fault with the transportation business as it
is carried on. It was hardly expected that
they would. But when merchants,
farmers, wholesalers, commission men
aud others came to be hoard here, they gave
expression to popular sentiment, the view of
the many as against the few. . While there
was considerable unanimity as to the griev
ances there was a wide diversity of opinion
as to the remedy that should be applied.
Some expressed themselves as heartily in
favor of railway commissions, others as
vigorously against them. It was admitted
that the location of St. Paul on the great
waterway to tide water at the gulf exercised
■ healthful restraining influence on rail
ways greatly to our benefit and to the
advantage of tributary trade centers
and territory. Capt. Blakelev dwelt
at length with much force and effect on this
point, and he is a recognized authority on
the subject. One cause of complaint urged
was the cheap through rate from Chicago to
extreme points in the West, having
the effect to discriminate against
St. Paul in the matter of ex
tending its trade into the territory natur
ally tributary to it. This subject has been
under discussion before, and it is a seri
ous problem for solution. Strong ground
was pretty generally taken by the gentle
men against pooling as tending to high
rates of transportation, for the reason that
it destroys competition, the best protection,
if it could be prevented, that we could have
against excessive tariff, Some quite origi
nal suggestions were submitted on these
subjects, and some good may come of the
visit of the committee to St. Paul.
The dairymen's convention came to prac
tical consideration of the great industry
on yesterday, and devoted the day to a most
interesting and instructive discussion of the
practical methods applied in butter making.
These proceedings are not only of inestima
ble benefit to those engaged actively in the
business, but to every housewife, either in
the city or in the cdhntry, who can afford
to keep a cow and make butter for the fam
ily table. Mr. Cubtiss' elucidation of
the simpler processes of the business,
for instance, is full of practical
suggestion. It is a clear exposition of the
methods that may be applied by the mer
est tyro in ji-making. But it remained .
for Treasurer Tottkx of the New York
Merchants' exchange to strike the keynote
of the diversified fanning campaign now in
augurated in the Northwest. By way of
introduction he claimed to be a big farmer
En New York, cultivating fourteen acres.
The time may come when that will be
regarded us a big farm in the Northwest,
but the wildest flight of the imagina
tion could hardly compass the idea.
One serious drawback to the development
of the Northwest in the direction of its
destiny as the home of. the free millions of
this great continent, is the bonanzo-farniing
system, which is all well enough for the
earlier stages of territorial development,
but it is out of harmony with a progressive
state. It is not a. condition which devel
ops cities and centers of population, or di
versified industries, or trade cente. s. The
bonanzo farmer can buy machinery and
supplies for his farm and secure
as cheap, if not cheaper, rates
of transportation, as the local
merchant and for that reason stagnation
seizes on the towns and they cannot thrive.
It is the homestead plan that makes an
agricultural people prosperous. Bonanza
mining in principle, if not- in practice,
tends to develop a system of serfdom out of
all harmony with our free institutions and
the highest functions and feelings of citi
zenship, and we should seek to outgrow it
as fast as possible in this new empire of the
Northwest. The almost illimitable acreage
of prairie in the Northwest should be cut
up into homesteads, ami eventually will be.
Then will it attain its highest development.
Diversified industries, among them stock
raising and dairying on a small scale, will
then thrive and cities and towns will spring
up and this will prove to be the paradise of
a pastoral people.
Dr. Takxikk, an ingenious French phy
sician, is entitled to distinction as a man of
inventive genius for the discovery of a pro
cess whereby children nay be -brooded
something on the principle of incubating
chickens by a mechanical appliance. The
appliances are described "as large boxes of
wood, with double walls, resting on a ped
estal divided into two compartments, the
lower containing warm water, the upper
the bed of the infant. The Upper compart
ment is covered by two plates of glass
which are movable, through which may
seen the condition of the infant and the
temperature indicated by a thermometer
placed within. A sufficient number of
openings are made to give communication
with the external air, which enters from
below, passes over the warm water heating
surface, and then ■ into the upper compart
ment, from which it escapes. The infant
is thus placed in a warm-air bath, the tem
perature of which is maintained constantly
at ßo° cc:itigi-.»de,or 86 ° Fahrenheit. The
greatest difficulty is to maintain this con
stant temperature. Tim heat is supplied by
a !<iH;ciul tamp. When this invention was
first announced it was regarded as
a French joke, but the inventor would not
have it whistled do the wind in that
way, and proceeded to .mit it in practice in
the 3lateniity hospital of Paris, with tho
following result reported by the hospital
authorities: "From Nov., 1381, t0 July, 1883,
there were treated by this method 151 in
fants, of whom 91 "had been prematurely
bom aiid the others Very feeble. A healthy
infant bora at lull time weighs about 3,509
grams. Those infants which at birth weigh
less than -.000 grams are considered as very
feeble: that is, it is more.' probable that they
will die than that they will live. Statistics
-how for such infants a mortality of about
;'.;> per cent. With the eonvenae, out of the
liiiK-ij-twb inf. int.- prematurely born thii;>
oue (lied, ami sixty-one lived. The time the
infant is kepi in the boxes varies from one
day 10 six weeks, according to its condition."
It will be seen by these statistics that it is
no joke, but a living, life-saving reality.
The Chicago Herald is deserving of credit {
from; the Democratic party, whose princi- J
pies it no ably champions, for- its denuncia-.
lion of Macxi.n and Vax Pklt for signing
a call for a city convention as secretary and i
chairman respectively. Mackix it de- j
nounces as a convicted scoundrel, and Vax :
Pklt is characterized as . a btatan 1
trickster. And it takes -'the bold but
tenable position that the party must ■
rise 'f superior to such self-assumed ,
leadership or : suffer lie defeat it will I
otherwise so richly deserve in November, j
The Herald is right. ■No newspaper can j
afford to recognize the leadership of such
men within the party for .whose principles !
it contends. The time ; for servile organ- j
grinding on the part of respectable papers j
lor such leaders has gone by in this conn- j
try. The time has come when treat news- j
paper's should insist upon the beat men in I
their party cowing forward and forcing the I
tricksters to the rear. Mien men as
Mackix ought to be driven out of the
ranks. They have no interests to subserve
but their own. The Herald roads the pop
ular verdict nt the last election well, and it
would have the party understand the depth
of its significance. Through the domina
tion of McDon'ai.h and Mackin and their
striken HabvisoH's magniiimit .majority
of over 10,000 of two years ago was re
duced to a paltry 300, in round figures.
It was not owing to Mayor Hah
kison's course, for he has been
one of the best mayors Chicago
ever had. He is a public-spirited citizen, v
line executive officer, and under his admin
istration the great city by the lake has
gone grandly on to fulfill its destiny as the
commercial center of this country. But
undue license was given the McDonalds
and the Mackins until the public rose up
on last election day and smote them with
the heavy hand of popular condemnation.
Mayor Hakkisox reads tho handwriting on
the walls of the city and has come frankly
to the front, with the declaration that he
will give Chicago an administration such
as is deaanded by the popular voice. And
he will have an able ally in the Herald.
He should join h&nds with this paper and
the better element of his party, and rule
tho McDonalds, the Mackins and the
Van Pki.ts out of the party, or at least
force them back into the ranks. .The
mayor's order for closing gambling houses
and for the resignation in writing of all
the officials who are subject to the execu
tive order are steps in the right direction.
He has the nerve and the ability to give
Chicago such an administration as will
bring back his old majority and fully re
store the waning confidence of the people of
Chicago in him. The first step to be taken
by Haiiiusox and the Herald now is to re
pudiate the solf-constituted ring-leaders and
ballot-box staffers, and to drive them to the
cover of the sheltering walls of the peni
tentiary if they stand onthe order of their
For the first time in half a century, accord
ing to high agricultural authority, two kinds

;\t this time was predicted several years

too true. The destructive pests were first

work of destruction lias already begun.
Swarms of toenste have been found on
Long Island, New York, and in Brooklyn
the grassy commons give evidence of their
presence. The circumstance that most af
fects the mind of the observer, says a Brook
lyn paper, "is tiie apparent spontaneity with
which they are generated from the soil,
itself. The very ground seems to be alive
with them, not in their matured condition,
as though they had come from great dis
tance, but in every stage of development,
as though their ova had been iucubatiug in
the ground and had suddenly yielded up
the billions of insects that cover the sur
face. That those eggs should have been
lying in the soil for seventeen years, awajt
ing the signal for a universal resurrection,
is one of those mysterious dispensations
which bring us a little closer to the more
majestic problem of life and death. That
such is the case, however, seems to be in
disputable. Perhaps to this wonderful
phenomenon may be traced the old Greek
myth of Cecrops, the sowing of the
dragon's teeth and the uprising from the
furrows of armed men. It requires no
great effort of the imagination to
invest .these countless invaders with a fierce
ness and power that are the characteristics
of the warrior. Nothing in nature i 3 more
icsisiless than the onward inarch of the lo
custs; nothing more emblematic of the
scourge of war than the blighted fields and
rained harvest, tha leafless trees and the
blackened landscape which he resigns to
the heart-broken cultivator. Death is
busy wherever he plants his standard. The
cattle, starving for tiie herbage that the in
si-ct army has foraged upon, die by the
water courses, and faster by the shadeless
streams, to pollute the water which Is left
to them and their owners, to poison the air
with their putrescence and to breed in turn
plague and pestilence to complete what
famine has begun. To us, with our rapid
system of locomotion, our granaries full
from one year's end to the other, and a
! (radically limitless area of arable land, the
locust has no such terrors as he exercised in
ancient times: as he does yet for the Boer,
the small husbandman of the Balkan penin
sula and the poor ryot of India. It lias
been said that the locust has taken more
lives than the sword. As a curiosity, an
enemy vanquished by civilization, he warms
'the fancy and assumes the graces of ro
mance. The days of his knight-errantry
are over, so far as we are concerned, but
he is a very suggestive person still."

Excitement at the Capitol.
An exciting scene was witnessed at the
capitol Wednesday morning. A lot of
horses, a hundred or so, were being driven
by, when a half dozen of them broke away
and leaped the fence' into the beautiful
lawn about the capitol. Mr. Hammond,
the assistant governor of Minnesota, owns
that lawn, and when he saw the untamed
horses trampling on the sward where none
but himself with his lawn mower are ever
permitted to set foot, it rattled him. He
collared an innocent bystander, and, show
ing his star, told him he was under arrest.
The stranger protested L. ; innocence, while
the horses tramped down the sward. • He
leasing his first prisoner, he ran to the
street and captured a team that was passing
and told the driver that it was under ar
rest. Arguments were useless, and Asst.
Gov. Hammond was about to court-martial
the team on the spot, when, in the absence
of Gov. Hubbard and Adjt. Gen. MacCar
thy, Gen. Jennison was petitioned and or
dered it released from , arrest. After . the
owner of the grounds had telephoned for
the patrol wagon, and the horses had bro
ken through a few boards on the walk and
rolled several times in the fresh grass, the
blue wagon came, the intruders were turned
into the street, quiet was restored, and, save
that the proprietor of the grounds was per
spiring a little more freely than usual, no
serious harm was done.

Special to the Globe.
Camp Hubb akd, Faribault, June 25. —
Tins' morning the reveille sounded at 5:15.
There were no absent men and the guard
house had not been used. ' The dampness
of the night had much to do with keeping
the boys in. But two men answered the
sick call and those . were slight cases of
sickness. Company drill at 0:30 was well
responded to. 1 The feature of the occasion
was the gallop drill of the battery, which
drew all the attention, even to that of the
companies. Maj. Smith kept the battery
in the field for some time after the com
panies had returned to their quarters.
■: Battalion drill gave the companies work
from 8:50 to 10:30. The movements exe
cuted were successful formations.
At 3 o'clock in the afternoon a detail
from Companies A, B, F and I went out to
the rifle range about three-quarters of ; a
mile south of the camp. The range has at
present but four 100-yard targets; the others
will be placed to-morrow. Considerable in
terest is being taken by the members of the
regiment in this target practice, and each is
anxious to qualify as a sharp shooter or
even marksman. The scores, possible 25,
at 100 yards are as follows:

Sioux Falls, Dak., June 25. — This has
been the closing day of the firemen's tour

the track was in fair condition. In the
novelty ladderniaii's contest, C. C. Langley

man by the name of Loseier was employed j
to run with the Sioux Falls and it was ;
charged that :he .sold the race. He
is a professional, and . it Is claimed
was bought by Sioux City. He was mobbed
and pounded severely, but the crowd ; was
parted by the sheriff and officers. C. L.
Pratt of Huron, won the silver cup for the

Cut Her Throat.
Special to the Globe.
' Bkownsdale, June 25.— Our community
was greatly shocked, yesterday, by the in
telligence of the death, by suicide, of Mrs.
Jane Eager, wife of Mr. Charles Eager,
who lived two miles east of - this village.
She had been unwell for some time, . but
appeared unusually cheerful that morning,
and assisted her housekeeper, Mrs. Peck,
in preparing breakfast for the family. . She
concealed her husband's razor in her pocket,
and stepping into her bedroom, locked the
door behind her. Mr. Eager, who was
working near her open window, heard her
groan, and going into the house, found her
door locked and ran to the open window.
She was kneeling on the floor with the
razor beside her, and the blood streaming
from three ghastly gashes in her neck. He
jumped through the window and found she
had severed the jugular vein and windpipe,*
and was dying. She lived about an hour
after the occurrence. • j>~. • ,<\
Escape of Prisoners.
St. Cloud, June — Two military pris- ,
oners en route from Fort Buford to Still
water, under sentence of three years each
for horse-stealing, escaped from the train
near this city to-day. Friends on the train
provided them with files, which they used j
to good advantage while occupying alone
the water closet, from the window of which
they jumped after relieving themselves of
their manacles. '■ .'"., ,t
Quite a heavy frost prevailed throughout
the north part of this county Wednesday
night, and from reports it is thought there
was quite a considerable damage done . . .
About twenty of our citizens went down to
Spirit Lake, la., on an excursion yesterday
and enjoyed a very pleasant day. . . .The
children of the M. E. Sunday school will
have a picnic excursion to Flandreau this
coming week 1 . The sad news came here
to-day of the death of C. C. Palmer, one of

Jockey club at their last meeting decided
to hold two races sometime in the latter
part of September. . . The G. A. R. post at
this place are making preparations for one
of the grandest celebrations here on July
4 ever held in this part of the state. The
Omaha and other railroads entering here
will sell excursion tickets to this place, and
as only one other town will celebrate in this
section, it is expected that over 10,000 peo
ple will be present.
The body of Howell Hughes, who was
drowned in the river here Tuesday evening,
was found Wednesday near the spot where
he was first seen to go down. . . Much dis
satisfaction is expressed among (he friends
of the public schools on account of the re
cent action of the board of education in the
matter of a principal and superintendent.
Presumably as a measure of economy, the
board of education on Tuesday evening de
cided to combine the offices of principal
and superintendent, arid forthwith pro
ceeded to elect a young man for that office,
at a salary of 31,600. He is to have charge
of the high school and grammar schools
and general supervision of the lower de
partments. A lady was elected assistant
superintendent at a salary of $900, and she
will control the lower grades. President
McGaughey, who has vigorously opposed
the poor economy and impracticability of
this combination, resigned as president of
the board,' amid considerable excitement.
A. H. Snow, Esq., was elected in his place.
Winona has long prided herself on the su
periority of her public schools, and any at
tempt in these days of the city's prosperity
to introduce a false economy will be met by
the opposition of Winona's best citizens.

A peculiar instance of one man being so
nearly the counterpart of another as to
puzzle the wife of the latter, when asked
to stp*j whether or not he was her husband,
occurred in West St. Paul yesterday. The
matter was brought about by the arrest of
a man named Godfrey Hertz, who was
taken in custody on Wednesday evening by
Detective Daly on suspicion of being the
man wanted at Hastings for disposing of
goods under chattel mortgage. When the
officer arrived from Hastings yesterday he
said that Mertz, although bearing the same
name and engaged in the same occupation,
was not the person wanted. He was ac
cordingly released and at once started for his
home on Rondo street, where he supposed
a newly-made wife was anxiously waitng
his return. Arriving there, the house was
deserted. He returned at once to the city
hall and asked for an officer to help him
find his wife. After a little search she was
■found at the house of a brother in West St.
Paul, but the brother refused to allow her
to return, on the ground that Mertz was
married to another woman living on Day
ton's bluff, and that the woman he was
after was wife No. 2. Mertz denied that
he was , married to any other woman,
and to settle the matter the woman sup
posed to be Wife No. 1 was called on.
When Mertz was taken before her she was
asked if that were her husband. The wo
man was completely nonplussed, and after
sizing him up for about three minutes said:
"Well, I really don't know, but I think my
husband is a larger man than that."
Though indefinite, the remark was suffi
cient to satisfy the other Mrs. Mertz that
her husband was | not a bigamist, and she
agreed to return home with him. The coin
cidence seems a remarkable one, as the
husbands of both women are not only alike
in name and occupation, both being butch
ers, but the men seem to resemble each
other so much that one woman could not
positively say the man was not her hus
band. But while one woman has her hus
band at home the ■ other one has not seen
hers for the past five months. '• '--:■«!> \-
A Dampness Thrown Over Red Bock
by tlte Shower yesterday. . ■
Early yesterday morning a severe thunder
storm.visited the grounds, continuing for
about two hours, during which time a great
quantity of rain fell. The weather con
tinued more or less threatening during the
forenoon. At noon the clouds rolled away
and fiery old Sol showed forth his burning
face. , Had it not been for a slight breeze
the heat would have been = exceedingly op
pressive. The new feature in the meetings
excites considerable discussion. Some are
inclined to give the subject serious consid
eration, and many profess to have received
the second blessing, full sanctification.
In consequence of the rain the 6 o'clock
and 7 o'clock prayer meetings were but
sparsely attended. At 10 o'clock a. m. the
sermon was preached by the Rev. Mr. Gill
of Barton. He took his text from Luke
xxiv., 44-49 inclusive. He said: We can
know the Divine ideal, and it is of the ut
most importance that we grasp it. The
first coming of Christ was that of suffering
and death. The second coming will be
that of grandeur, glory and power. The
church has but one mission, and that is to
preach repentance and remission of sins.
We should not meddle with worldly things.
Christians should keep out of politics. Did
you ever know a Christian to go to Wash
ington without getting smutted? I never
The greatest weakness of the human soul
is inbred sin. We can not worship God
while we are possessed of it, but if we are
free from it nothing can overcome us in
working for him.
'-.' At 3 o'clock the sermon was preached by
Eev. J. A. Wood. He took as his text:
"If we confess our sin He is faithful and
just to forgive us our sin, and to cleanse
us from all unrighteousness." The speaker
dwelt at length upon the idea of no growth
Into grace, i. c., sanctification. The change
must be accomplished at once. . The first
blessing cannot be educated into a second
blessing. The idea of education is to lead
out. , If there Is nothing to be led out educa
tion cannot take place. There are many
ministers preaching the ' gospel who have
never been converted. What we want is
full salvation, and we want it now.
The sermon in the evening was preached
by Rev. Dr. Hobart, who was a pioneer in
Minnesota ministry. He took for his text.
"Create within me a pure heart and renew
a bright spirit within me."' The judgment
of the father is well worthy of attention
and the true appeal on all religious subjects
to the Bible. A person accepted of God
has something more than the first blessing
coming from pardon. No Christian will
allow excess in his appetite; one who does
is a disgrace to himself, to his country anil
to his God. If man can break one com
mandment of God he can with equal im
punity break . . all. We should not
be tale , bearers. ; It is , as bad
t0;,.',-/ hear slander as to vend it.
The will is a respondent faculty. If it is
rightly exercised it will lead him into glory
and light. Christians are firm amidst temp
tation. Give yourself the ; benefit of every
doubt.. Keep your imagination pure. The
imagination is the devil's workshop. Let
nothing come into your hearts but what is
pure, right, holy and good.

■. . . NOT A JUNKET.
TUs Interstate Commerce ' Commit-
I ,-' tee a Sot of Hard Workers.
: "Junket be d-^T^- dl" V •■:';, \ .'.</'■'■ ..,;'
This was the exclamation made by one
no matter which one — of the United States
senate interstate commerce committee at
the close of its session yesterday to 'Globe
reporter, who suggested that thiijexcursiou
didn't look much like a junket.
;;f "No, sir,' it's no junket," he continued.
"We work every day just as you have seen
us work to-day. • We arrive in' a town in
the morning, open :up proceedings ;; at ;10
o'clock, invite everybody in that , wants to
talk to us, sit until noon, adjourn an ) -hour
for dinner, and in the evening take the train
for the next town. We haven't J missed a
day since we started out. and you would be
surprised to see how many people there are
with schemes for solving the whole difficult
problem of railway legislation. If we
were to embody them all iv one bill it
would be a queer medley."
Later in the afternoon Senator Cuilom
was seen by a Globb reporter. He is the
chairman of the committee and it is curious
to see the great patience with which he
listens to the testimony and , the eagerness
with which he strives to di/*V out every
body's opinions on the subjtVi, although it
must be a very old story to him by this
time. Senator Cuilom lias been identified
with the history of Western railroad legis
lation almost from the beginning. He waa
the speaker of the Illinois house of repre
sentatives when the railway law of that
state was passed. He was the governor of
Illinois who appointed the railroad com
missioners of that state, and in the senate
was the author of the famous Cuilom bill
which was passed but rather than which
the house preferred the lieagan bill. In
answer to a question, Senator Cuilom
.stated that it was his confident hope that
both houses would be able to agree on some
good railroad bill at the next session.
It would be impossible, he thought, to for
mulate and enforce a set of rigid laws for
the regulation of railroads in the country.
The bill which congress would pass would
undoubtedly provide for a commission with
discretionary powers. Although this was
the essential feature of the Cuilom bill, he
had no interest in that measure as against
any other. The people were demanding
some sort of legislation and they were en
titled to the most efficient railroad law con
gress could frame.
After the meeting of the committee yes
terday, Senator Platt went to call on Gen.
Terry at Fort Snelling, and Senators Cui
lom and Harris went to ride with Gen.
Becker and J. W. McClung. The party
left last night for Chicago. Senator Harris
will go to Washington. It appears that he
shares in the general opinion that there is
to be a general overturning in the offices
about July 1, and lie wants to put in a word
