The first day was a pleasant surprise to the managers and to the visitors. The attend ance was larger than was anticipated, and the exhibit far surpassed ail expectations. Our Minnesota people felt a justifiable pride in the splendid showing made on yesterday. It i* true that the rush and hurry always atlgndant on the opening of an exposition was aggravated in this instance because of the limited time within which the associa tion has had to arrange for a fair of such extraordinary proportions as this one. And as it so happened that the exhibition is much larger than was originally anticipated, it is a wonder that the association has at all been able to meet the demands made upon it. So that yesterday when the visitor reached the fair grounds and viewed the magnificent display, and saw the ample accommodations which had been provided and to which the finishing touches were being given, the wonder was that so much could have been done in such a short time. Then- is everthing to please the eye and to gratify the expectations of the most critical. In their natural beauty the grounds are un surpassed. All that art can do has been ; done to add to their loveliness. The build- I ings are splendid in design and of the am plest capacity. But, what is best of all, the exhibit of Northwestern products is superb. It is no exaggeration to say there has never been a fair In any North western state at which there was ever as line an exhibit of live stock, both as regards numbers and the high grade of the stock, as at this tair. And it is questionable whether it has ever been surpassed in the United States. And the same may be said in reference to almost every other department. The railroads which run into St. Taul have been most generous in their display of agricultural products along their respective lines. Thjß dairy department is Up to the full standard of a Minnesota exhibit, and that implies the best in the world, for in its dairy products the stale now siands highest on the roll of ' honor. The display of machinery and ag ricultural implements is up to what j a first-class Northwestern fair should be. But the most attractive fea- i ture of all is the magnificence of the display in the main building. Here it is the eye of the visitor delights to rest, as it revels in a succession of lovely sight-, which rival in splendor the dazzling loveli ness of :m Oriental bazaar. The State Fair association has every reason for congratulation upon the splendid success it has achieved iv its opening exhibition. Minnesota has cause to be proud of it, for she has an exposition which challenges the admiration of all her sister states. The people of Ramsey county have a satisfaction in knowing that it was due to their liberality this groat enterprise has ivi'n made a success. With such an auspi ous opening there is no doubt that the re maining days of The fair will demonstrate it to be the most superior agricultural ex hibit ever made west of the Mississippi. UNKIND CRITICISMS. The omnibus resolutions passed by the waterways convention do not receive much commendation from outside sources. There is too much Goose creek in the scheme pro jected by the convention to please the peo ple who do not live in the immediate vicin ity of that famed local stream and its tribu taries. In other words, there is a disposi tion on the part of the press of the country to accept .Mr. Do.wki.i.y's definition of the objects of the convention when he styled it an organized raid on the treasury of most gigantic proportions. Even in Chicago, where it was expected that the recognition of the llennepiu canal would have recon ciled all differences, there is a most vigorous kick by the Tribune. The Tribune speaks of it as "one of the most extravagent schemes ever de vised by a body of men as intelligent as the delegates to the waterway convention." The opinion is expressed that in order to follow the example of the St. Paul conven tion, congress would have to appropriate at least 5100,000,000 annually for so-called improvements that would never justify the expenditure of one-fourth that amount. It further says that "in all probability very few of the delegates to the recent conven tion really believe the plans proposed are feasible. The resolutions represent a log rolling scheme gotten up in imitation of the methods followed in congress whan a river and harbor bill is under consideration. Yet in congress it is considered necessary only to secure enough votes to pass the bill; but the St.. Paul convention was de termined to be unanimous, and hence included the plans of every delegate, how ever magnificent they happened to be. If the convention had made an honest and in telligent effort to select such plans as are feasible the vote might not have been unan imous, but the action would have carried some weight. As it is, the convention has proved how easy it is for a body of men to get together and vote away (in the mind's eye) hundreds of millions of the people's money in a grand, benevolent, log-rolling scheme embracing everything in general and nothing in particular." \\ bile the criticisms made by the Tribune have some force in them, it will occur to the citizen of the Northwest that a point has been stnmicil by our Chicago contem porary to give emphasis to them. This is no time to quarrel about what has been done. It is a time for the varied in terests of the%orthwest to stand shoul der to shoulder and thus secure what <-,\n be obtained by united action, but which will inevitably be lost if we divide against our selves. The Globe is of opinion that the demands of the convention are a trifle larger than will be granted. At the same time we are confident that the most important appropriations can be secured. If our Cbi caeo friends waul t<> drop the Hennepln canal scheme we will rai.*>i' no objection, although, so far as St. Paul is concerned, we can m-;> ]><> reason why we should an tagonize it, "r object to it in any form. On the contrary we are disposed to believe that the ileuui i>in canal will be of great advan tage iii St. Paul as we are sure it will be to a large portion <>! the great Mississippi val ley lying to the south of us. What helps one ought to belp all. A SHAM SERVICE. The experience, of the United States gov ernment With Mr. KEILEV has served to open the discussion of a proposition r> abol ish our sham diplomatic service. So far as Mr. Keiley's Individual ease is concerned Italy had a technical right, although it w.is :>. narrow course to pursue, to reject him. but there was not even a technical pretext lin the case of Austria. The formal reason 1 assigned for it fusing to accept him was thai his wife was a Jewess, and that it would be a violation of court etiquette to receive her. This representation of tli • Austrian government is an insult to the United States, ami demands resulting action. The proper thing for our government to do is to exclude Austria altogether from the list of those to whom the com pliment is p;'id of formal recognition. And it Austria is excluded from the diplomatic list what reason is there that ail oi the na tions should not be dropped. Ourdiplo i matic service is a sham and ought to be abolished. An American minister at a European court is an anomaly. lie is a I i mere figurehead* He has uo diplomatic duties to discharge. The relations between this country and other countries are such that diplomacy is out of the question. The cable telegram has brought the state ; : neni ml ■ such close relations with .\ countries that even if diplomacy was j I needed the secretary of Mate him- 1 ■ self would be the real and only j diplomat Uut the absurdity of j this country attempting to maintain a diplomatic service is apparent when we re memher that we have no diplomatic corps from which to select ministers: no school in which our representatives are educated in i the mysteries of state craft. Our ministers ' j are not chosen because of their fitnes - t i discarge diplomatic duties. They are urged by politicians and are generally selected to j gratify party demands or to reward partisan ; service. The tact is there are no relations i between the United States and the European ' I nations that would impose duties on a mm- ■ , istcr which a competent consulate service | could not as well perform. The! American envoy extraordinary and mm- } isrer plenipotentiary is nothing after all ' TIIE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE. TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 8, 1885. —TWELVE PAGES. but a business agent for the government. I The fact that our ministers are not the ! laughing stock of the world is the best evidence that the ancient theory of diplo- ! macy no longer survives. According to the European theory.the schools of Goutsciia koff and Cavouk signify something tangi ble. But they do not relate to conditions which concern us. They are based upon ! the theory of secrecy, which supposes that all ! governments are constantly intriguing. European diplomacy may be properly des ignated a delicate system of lying. It is ! to say one thing and mean another, without ; giving your opponent an opportunity to con vict you of falsehood. There is no necessity for secrecy in our relations with the world. The policy of the I United States is embodied in the constitution. It is an open book. Our policy consists of a very few and well understood traditions. It is well under stood by all the world that we have no dis- ! position to enlarge our territory and we have no intention of permitting another | government to be erected on American soil. ; There is not a single reason why we need to maintain a score or more' of American gentlemen in luxurious exile at vast ex pense. Our constitution can keep before the eyes of foreign potentates the element ary propositions of American diplomacy. If they wish to know anything of the bearing of our constitution and traditions upon pres ent emergencies and conditions, all the princes and prime ministers and grand viziers of the Old World have to do is to read the American newspapers. Our public press copiously interprets all that is needed in regard to our foreign relations, and a first-class American daily newspaper will give all the information that could be conveyed by a procession of gentlemen in swallow-tailed coats bearing the instructions of the state department. An illustration of how much better the newspapers sometimes represent the will of the American people than our diplomatic agents was given several years ago when Mr. 15i.ai.vk made such a notable blunder in I his instructions to the American representa- i tives in Peru and Chili. An American em- ■ bassadoris an anachronism, and the further j maintenance of the system is undemocratic and irrational. If Mr. Kkilky's rejection | will serve to arouse the country to the duty of dispensing with its corps of ornamental loungers, distinguished by nothing but their money and their feeble and ridiculous efforts to institute nobility, then Mr. Keiley will not have suffered in vain. GRACEFULLY DOXE. it was a very graceful proffer of the hand of fellowship and good will which the Min neapolis board of trade yesterday extended to St. Paul, and on behalf of our people the Globe assures our Minneapolis friends that the olive branch is accepted in the same spirit of kindness and cordiality with which it was tendered. There can be no rivalry between the Twin cities except that gen erous emulation ■which prompts each to strive for the. honor of being foremost in every good work which redounds to the ben efit of both alike. Our material interests are so closely interwovon that the two cities must stand or fall togcthor. What assures the success of one is a guarantee of the progress of the other. Judge Atwateij paid a just tribute to St. Paul when he said that our people had treated the Minneapolis delegates to the waterways convention in a liberal, gen erous and open-handed manner. That was the treatment St. Paul bestowed upon all the delegates, and it is St. Paul's invariable method of treating its guests. There is no place iii the breast of a St. Paul citizen for narrow or sectional feeling. And we are gratified to see the Minneapolis board of trade making a manly admission of this truth in the face of the puerile attempt of certain influences in that city to keep alive a prejudice which cannot be justified and which never had a reason to exist. If the waterways convention has done no other good it has at least brought the people of the two cities to a better understanding of the community of interests which exists be tween them. As an evidence of this fact, the harmony and good feeling as well as the united zeal of the twin sisters in promoting the success of our state fair speaks most encouragingly. AX INJUSTICE. A correspondent of the Globe makes a good point in relation to the resolution adopted by the board of water commission ers which declares that water shall not be taken from the mains to (ill cisterns along the line of the water mains. The resolu tion not only does a great injustice to the poor men of the city but it is an abridge ment of the rights of the public which the water commissioners have no right to im pose. The water works belong to the city and the people who pay for them are enti tled to the use of the water in any way they prefer to use it, and should be protected in that right so long as it does not interfere with the public. Of what consequence is it to the. water commissioners whether a freeholder takes the water from a main and runs it into his cistern or into his bath room. In the beneficence of the Al mighty there is nothing freer to man than water. And while it takes money to con struct artificial channels with which to sup ply cities, most certainly those who pay for bringing it to their homes ought to have the free use of the water when it is there. It i- an outrage that, because a man is too poor to have water connections made be tween his house and the main, he should be denied the use of the water for which he has been taxed to bring it to the street on which he lives. Unless the water commis sioners can show that the resolution affects a public benefit the people will demand its immediate repeal. REPUBLICANS DISCOMFITED. The lowa Republicans are all broken up because the courts have decided that the saloonkeepers in that state have some rights which even lowa Republicans can be made to respect. The theory of the lowa Repub licans was that they had a right to go ahead closing ur> saloons and destroying the prop erty of saloonkeepers by the summary process of an injunction. The courts, how lever, have an idea that the right of trial by I jury is still the sacred right of American freemen, regardless of their occupations. '!"!!■■ doctrine of states rights in the mind of the average Republican is about as pliant and reversible as a decision of the late electoral commission. Mb. Stead, editor of the Pall Hall Gazette, perhaps realize? by this time that he overdid himself in the scandal business. Enterprise in a newspaper is a good thing-, but when it j goes beyond the limit of law it is just as r< p rebensible as the crime it seeks to rebuke. If Editor Stead's seal bad been wholly di rected to doing- the public a service be would probably have teen more cautious in making- \ developments. But when he coupled cupidity ' with zeal Tor purifying the moral atmosphere i of London be lost bis balance in eagerness to j grasp a few extra pennies. Sir. Stead will ; learn, as many other newspaper men have ! learned, that there is a vast difference be- j tween Journalistic enterprise and journalistic : sensationalism. - —••■ The Spanish-German war is lost sight of on j this side of the water In the intense interest manifested in the international yacht race between the Puritan andtheGenesta. Such is the American fondness for the excitement of a boat race or a prize fight, that though all ' Europe trembled in the throes of a revolution j or her population was being swept away by plague or famine, the sport would have to go ! on. Rome hud its gladiators and Athens its i Olympic games and both perished. When a nation has no higher ambition than to give itself up to amusements the beginning of the end has come.

It is a matter entirely dependent upon the Jiber ality of our public-spirited citizens, and if not attended to at once our day of grace will bo sinned away. The St. Louis newspapers arc standing on their tiptoes and inquiring of the Missouri delegation why it was that a Kansas City man was made chairman of the waterways con vention. With Chicago on one side and Kan sas City on the other, St. Louis is hoeing a stumpy row. May Expect Favorable Kesults. Duluth Herald. The waterways convention worked together harmoniously and the interests of the entire Northwest were well considered. The action Of the convention will have great influence with the next congress and in future the Northwest may expect as much assistance from the government as has been given the South. SUM lias Aspirations. Owatona Journal. Statements have been floating around of late to the effect that William Windom would soon inflict himself on Minnesota a-, and settle in Winona, for tho purpose of again attempting to steal a United States Benator ship from this state. There are plenty of worthy citizens competent to till the position and it is not necessary that a foreigner should once more be foisted upon us. — m ItliUMt>sota Wheat Grades. S tillwater Messenger. It becomes more and more apparent that the lately established grain laws are inade quate to properly define the respective grades of the wheat crops of 1885. They lack com prehensiveness; the rules that govern them are too numerous, and the grades ire far too few. The wheat crop of lSi;5 varies so widely Crom No. 1 to No. i, with the quantity in fa vor of the inferior grades, that to give to each its proper grade will require the utmost nicety of distinction. The shortage the yield and its inferiority in quality will lead the farmers to insist on their rights as they have never insisted on them before. What is wanted and what will be demanded before the fall season is over is fractional grades. JR. TALKtAGB ABROAD. An English i>en Portrait and an Interview. !i A reporter of the London Pall Mall Gazotte had an interview recently with Dr. Talmage in regard to its recent sensational and pru rient publications! The following is a part of the report: "Now," said Dr. Talmag-e, "in my opinion you have done enormous good. Your reve lations have been read in every corner of the universe and have Bet men thinking. In the states they are, lam toll, the common sub ject of conversation (for I was away when they appeared), but I have read them care fully and discussed them from every point of view with many people, fellow travelers by land and sea, who generally approve of the course that has been taken. Do I believe in their truth? Why,l have only been in London for a few days and since my last visit, some years ago, I am absolutely appalled at tho increase of vice in the Strand alone. You say that obloquy has been heaped upon you. Notice it not. Agitate! agitate! agitate! Shall you stay your hand now that you have done this thing? No! no no! Send forth your preachers into the public places and tell your people the truth. You want six John Knoxes and six John Wesleys to sow the good seed In the barren places of the world. Agitate and go on agitating. Good seed bears fruit slowly. You have shaken the worldsown the seed of a moral revelation. Agitate! agitate! agitate! Heed not the cries, the objurgations and the anathemas. Let tho clubmen and aristocrats taik." "It has been said. Dr. Talmag-e, that we have pandered pruriency by the plain language tliat has been used in setting forth these horrors, that much might have been suppressed." "There are only two methods, I take it, of dealing with such matters- the Byronical and the Biblical. Had you employed the first, the accusations leveled against the pa per would have been just, but you employed the right, the only straightforward and proper method of stating your facts in the most telling manner, and the only manner to drive the horrible truths home to the commu nity. That, at any rate, is my opinion, which you asked for." Dr. T»Uma','e has a striking face, with fea tures that mind one of Charles Kingsley and Dr. Farrar, a low, broad forehead, thin brown hair,plentiruuy tinged with gray,care fully brushed, Cor the eloquent divine boasts 110 wild and unkempt locks character istic of the evangelist. On the contrary, he is trim and well snorn. His chin and upper lip are close shaven, he has thin, dark, strag gling whiskers, which grow grayer and whiter as they join the hair, dark blue eyes, deep set,full of lire and expression when he warms to his subject, a look of concentration accen tuated by the shaggy eyebrows, a face marked with the lines of thought. The doctor smiies sometimes and reveals a set of perfect teeth, and more than once, when recounting some of his adventures, breaks out into a hearty laugh, the heartiness of which is perhaps rather subdued by the knowledge of his evan gelistic function. Now and then his right hand finds itself between the folds of his coat, and rests there for a moment twitching spas modically, lie speaks, by the way, with an accent American, of course, but not too strong American, and "guesses," though he never "bets." "Another good," continued Dr. Talmage. "You have sounded the tocsin of alarm in every family, sounded alarm in the bosom of every good mother, and brought the blood to the face of every right thinking man. You say that some declined to allow your paper to lie in their parlors and drawing-rooms, for fear of contaminating their young sous and daughters. But how else are \ou to warn them? You cannot Bay to your children: ■ 'There's a great evil of which you must be ware, but I cannot toll you what that evil is.' If you warn them against gambling, you point out to them the evils of gambling and the ruin which follows. So. I take it, you must deal with this horrible sin. There is no time for shamefaced delicacy. You ask foi a parallel. Take the case of Boss Tweed. He stole mill ions from the public exchequer, to common knowledge. For a time no one spoke. it was not until the scandal became too notorious that action was taken. There were many Boss Tweeds. Tweedism grew by force of example, until the evil had to bo grappled with, not in one town alone, but many. Vigil ance committees were formed, and it became known thai Tweedism was not to be condoned. So it is with the ques.iin of vice. ltllourisb.es for a time and grows by nourishing. But a time comes at last when some man, bolder than his fellows, takes the matter in hand. Publicity and agitation are two mighty swords." Preparing For a I is lit. The Atlantic & Pacific Railway company Is building a new road from Daggett* Cal., to San Diego, Cal.. crossing the Southern Pacific at Coiton. This will give the Santa Fe an entirely independent line to the Pa cific coast and enable it to get to San Fran cisco by steamers from San Diego indepen dent of the Southern Pacific Although the Santa Fe and Atlantic & Pacific have at present virtually an independent line to San Francisco, yet they have to run over the Southern Pacific from Mojave under a prorating arrangement from Albuquerque. In case or a war between the Transconti nental roads the Southern Pacific may con strue this arrangement in such a manner as to embarass the Santa Fe and Atlantic & Pacific roads considerably. By building the now line to San Diego the last-named roads will become entirely independent of the Southern Pacific, and will have nothing to fear if the latter should attempt to euibarass it on business going via Mojave.

The Trouble Between Spain and Germany Apparently Hearing a Satisfac tory Settlement." Bismarck Calm and 0001, Evidently Loth to Take Offense Unless He is Compelled. Cubans Greatly Excited Over tlio Affair and Anxious for Blood to Flow. Trial of 'the English Sensationalists — Damaging Evidence Against the Principals. Tlio Carolines Dispute. Madrid, Sept. 7.—Dispatches just re ceived regarding the German occupation of Yap, state that the Spaniards on the island had hoisted the Spanish flag and had low ered it at sunset for the night, as is cus tomary with all nationalities, and that im mediately afterwards the German gunboat ran in, landed marines and sailors, hoisted the German colors and formally Occupied the place, despite the protestations Of the Spaniards. Prince Bismarck has offered to withdraw the German forces from Yap, provided Spain will not occupy it pending a diplomatic solution of the question. As to Spain's claim over the island, Germany will acknowledge the Spanish occupation of Yap, provided Spain proves that the Spanish Hag had been hoisted on the island before the German gun-boat had arrived in the harbor. The excitement in Madrid over the affair has quieted down. Everything was tranquil last night. Count Yon flaber feldt. in his statement to Count Benemar regarding the orders that had been given to the German gun-boat, meant that the gun-boat had been forbidden to hoist the German Hag where the Spanish flag had been hoisted. He said that the disobedience of the commander of the gun-boat would not effect the situation. The universal opinion here is that the last communication to the government from Count Solens Sounenwalde, the German minister, justifies the hope of a speedy ami cable settlement of the Carolines dispute. EMBHOILIXG FRANCE. Paris, Sept. 7.—M. De Freycineth, min ister of foreign affairs, is hurriedly return ing to Paris in consequence of the excite ment occasioned by the Carolines affairs. The Spanish residents at Marseilles threaten to attack the German consulate in that city. The local authorities have taken steps to prevent any repetition of the Madrid out rage. The newspapers of Paris, in com menting on the difficulty between Germany and Spain, insist that Prince Bismarck is trying to embroil France in the affair. A dispatch from Madrid to Temps says: The government has renewed its orders to the governors of provinces to prevent anti- German manifestations and military precau tions have been increased in Saragos.sa and Valencia. Probable King Leopold of Belgium or Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria will be asked to act as arbitrator between Spain and Germany. King Alfonzo at the cabi inet council to-day deprecated a hasty de cision to rupture the friendly relations" with Germany. An anti-German demonstration at St. Sebastian ha.-* been suppressed and several arrests has been made. BISMARCK'S CALMNESS. Berlin, Sept. 7.TheKreuzzelung says that Germany, in obtaining reparation from Spain, refrains from adding to the troubles of a friendly sovereign. The Kieuzzelung is confident that Prince Bismarck's seasoned judgment and linn hand will conduce to a settlement of the dispute. Other newspa pers praise the calmness displayed by the citizens of Berlin. EXCITEMENT IN CUBA. '..■' Havana, Sept 7.About 5.000 persons attended a meeting at the Spanish Casino yesterday, which had been called to take action in connection with the seizure of the Caroline islands by Germany. En thusiastic speeches were made, pledging the lives and property of the citizens of CubiUu support of the Spanish govern ment In case of war. A merchant, in the name of the merchants of Havana, offered SauO.OOO toward purchasing men-of-war. A resolution was adopted urging traders to suspend relations with Germany while negotiations are. pending. A procession was then formed and marched to the palace, and the president and directors of lie Casino called upon the captain general and informed him of the action of the meeting. The captain general thanked them and said if war broke out the Ger mans would not go to Spain, but might | come to Cuba, in which event he was pie- I pared to defend the island from German i aggression, and he counted on their support and that of all the people of Cuba. The gathering dispersed peacefully, after giving ! cheers for Spain. King Alfonso and the I captain general. A portion of the crowd passed in front of the German consulate, repeating the cheers for Spain and King ! Alfonso. The consulate is guarded. A | committee from the political party known j as the Union Constitutional and "the com- ; manders of numerous volunteer corps has offered its services to the captain general ' and the national government. The press ! of Havana is highly indignant over the ! Carolines affair and the public excitement is intense. The Caroline islands are a "widely-scattered archipelago in the Pacific ocean to the east of the Philippines and tqe north of New Guinea, between 3° and 11 => n. lat., and 135° and 177° B. Ion?. By the Spaniards, who lay claim to the whole, they are divided into the ; Western, the Central and the Eastern Caro- f lines. The Western, better known as the Pc- i lew islands, have a total area of 340 square miles, and are nearly encircled by a coral reef. The surface is frequently well wooded and the soil fertile. The Central Carolines, or those which are more usually known as the Caro lines proper, consist of about forty-eight croups with 100 or 500 islands. The Njroli. Gulu, or Matelotas group lies to the northeast • of the Pelews, and consists of threo islands, ! inhabited by a few people from Yap. Yap ' lies further to the northeast, is about ten miles in length, and has an excellent harbor on the southeast. The natives are at a higher level of civilization than most of their neigh bors; they cultivate the betel-nut with great care, build first-rate boats, lay out their vil- j lages regularly, pave their streets and con struct stone piers and wharves. The Eastern Carolines are otherwise known as the Mnl grave archipelago, and comprise the Kadak, Kalik or Marshal] group and the Gilbert group. The total population is estimated at 100,000. j They were discovered by the two voyagers ; whose names they bear, in 1788. Trying- the Sensationalists. London. Sept. 7.—Mr. Stead, editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, Mrs. Jan-eft. Bram- | wellßooth, Mrs. Coombe. Mr. Jacques and : Mine. Maury, the defendants in the so called abduction case, appeared in the Bow street police court to-day in answer to the charges against them. Mr. Stead con- i ducted his own case, while counsel repre sented the others. The excitement in the courtroom and hi the vicinity has seldom, i if ever,been equalled. The police were pow- I rless to control thee mob who had assembled i to hear the proceedings. Members of the i Salvation army were arriving all the morn- ' ing in cabs, and were hooted and jostled by I the crowd on their way to the court room. ■ In the court there was a compact mass of i people: a number of reporters were present, also many members of the Salvation army and quite a sprinkle of brothel keepers. Mrs. Jarrett sat in the prisoners' dock. Mr. Stead and Bramwell Booth had seats on the front of the dock. Mr. Poland, solicitor for the treasury, opened the case for the crown with a long speech, in which he gave a de scription of how the girl was obtained from ' her mother, THE OUTRAGE to which she had been subjected after she was installed in Madame Maury?s establish ment, and the treatment she had received from the time she left her mother until she was recovered and taken home. Mrs. Jar rett. during Mr. Polland's speech, sat with a calm demeanor, her eyes closed and her head nodding, closely resembling Charles Dickens' "Sally Brass," in the "Old Curi osity Shop." Mr. Stead appeared uncon cerned, smiling occasionally, and at times denying Mr. Polland's allegations. At the conclusion of his address to the court Mr. Polland demanded the committal of all the defendants for trial. The child Eliza Arm strong was placed on the witness stand and identified Mrs. Jarrett as the woman who had secured her from her father on the plea of needing her assistance to do housework. | The girl then gave in detail the circum- 1 stances of her abduction. She further testi- j fled that at the medical examination imme- | diately after she was decoyed from home I the physician tested her Innocence, despite her screams, and that afterward she was i despatched to France to prevent the police j from getting possession of her or her mother. 1 She wrote several letters home, but the members of the Salvation army who had charge of her suppressed them. This ended the girl's testimony for the day. The de fendants indicated that they would contest the accuracy of the girl's statements. The court then adjourned until to-morrow. The defendants were all released on bail. Mr. Stead and Mrs. Jarret were I hissed by tho crowd as they were leaving ; the court. j The mob at the doors of the court tried to j overturn Gen. Booth's carriage and molested other members of the Salvation army. Eliza Armstrong was cheered. Not Pleasant for IKussia. London, Sept. 7.—The ameer of Bok hara has abdicated in favor of his son, Turani, who is inimical to Russian inter ests and friendly towards England. Russia lias determined to extend her railway sys tem through Bokhara, despite the protesta tions of .Turani. A Bokharan embassy is i at present in St. Petersburg discussing I the question with the Russian minister. The concession for building the railway was obtained by Russia from the father of i Turani. and is in connection with the Transcaspian railway. Archbishop Walsh Installed. Dublin, Sept. 7. — Archbishop Walsh was installed in office to-day in the Dublin | cathedral. The ceremonies were witnessed by the lord mayor and corporation, Messrs.

Washington, Sept. 7. —Neither the Spanish nor the German legation has any news to-day concerning the trouble between ; those two countries. The secretary of the ! German legation, the only member of the legation now in the city, says that the present outlook seems threatening, but he can't judge of what the outcome will be. From a diplo matic standpoint the situation is unprece dented, he says, as the policy of Germany to acquire new territory is an entirely new one. The Cholera Scourge. Madrid, Sept. 7. There were 2,321 new cases of cholera and 919 deaths from the disease reported yesterday throughout Spain. Yesterday's cholera returns, com- i pared with those of the 30th ult., show that the epidemic increased in Barcelona, Cadiz, Santauder and Tarragona and has decreased about 50 per cent, in the remaining prov inces. SIOUX FAL2.S CONVENTION. Delegates Numerous, Ready For the Work of To-Uay, Special to the Globe. Sioux: Falls, Dak., Sept. 7.—The cor ridors of the hotels are fast tilling with del egates for the convention, which meets to morrow, and appearances now indicate a large representation. Considerable inter est is already apparent. Among the more prominent who have arrived are Secretary Teller, Judge Moody, Rev. J. A. Ward, P. B. Coffin and 11. J. Grant, and each train brings in new arrivals. Some caucus ing is being indulged in, and there seems to be a large element in favor of ad journment without action, though the im pression is that the convention will curry out the objects for which it was created. Chief Justice Edgerton. it is generally con ceded, will be the chairman, though Rev. Mr. Ward and Judge Moody are both prom inently mentioned in this connection. The headquarters for the delegates seems to be at the Cataract house, though the other hotels are receiving large numbers. The Prohibitionists and Women suffragists are quite numerous, and will make strong ef forts in behalf of their respective in terests in the provisions of the constitu tion. She Had. a. Water Snake. Hartfoiid City, Ind., Sept. —Lillie M. Hahon, 7 years of age, living three miles south of this city, commenced complaining of a pain in the stomach over three months ago. She gradually became worse, until, during a paroxyism of suffering, she was threatened with convulsions. She often described her sensations as that something was alive in her stomach, and said she could feel it move. She was medicated much of the time, and often worm medi cine was administered, the idea prevailing that it was stomach worms that caused her suffering. She became emaciated, weak and almost bloodless. Her appetite was depraved and she took little nourishment except of a fluid nature. She was troubled with great thirst, often drinking copious draughts of wafer, after which she would be relieved for an hour or more. During the last week she complained of pain in her bowels and her sufferings at times became almost unbearable. She was confined to her bed, and her friends thought dissolution would soon end her agony. On Friday morning last she expelled from the bowels an object over two feet in length. Microscopic observation developed the fact that the object discharged was a species of water-snake, and it is alive and quite active. It is kept in rain water in a stopped bottle. When the water is chilled it becomes torpid and when subjected to heat it becomes ac tive. Under the microscope it has been seen to protrude its tongue, which resem bles the point of a tine needle. It is per fectly round, smooth and uniform in size throughout its entire length. The child is rapidly recovering and experiences none of the sensations that troubled it prior to be ing relieved of its terrible tormentor. Hundreds of persons have seen the reptile and witnessed its gyratory movements in wonder and amazement. It has none of the characteristics of tape worm or any form of ortozoic life described by authors. The child must have drank water of which I it was an inhabitant and it gradually devel oped. Desertion in High Life. Special to the Globe. Philadelphia, Sept. 7.— of the most notable events in the upper circles of society during the season of 1875 was the marriage of Lieut. C. 11. Baldwin of the United States navy to Miss Emma Perot, a recognized belle. Her father, was con nected with the navy department and is now a leading merchant in Chili, South America. In May, 1877, Lieut. Baldwin was ordered on duty. His ship, the Oneida, touched at Yokohama, Japan. Baldwin accepted a proposition from the Japanese government to organize and take charge of the hydrographic school at Kioto and re signed his position in the American navy. For several years he maintained a • regular correspondence with Mrs. Baldwin and made generous contributions for her support. Then his letters arrived fib fully, and his remittances became smaller. Another year passed by. Letters and money both failed to be received by Mrs. Baldwin. Her letters remained unanswered. The communications of her counsel met with a like fate, until a few months ago when she received a letter from the ex- Heutenant declaring that he had made new alliances and would never return to th»» United States. Naval officers say that he lias married a Javanese waman of rank. Mrs. Baldwin has entered a suit for divorce, and asks the custody of her son. She gives as a cause "Willful desertion for more than two years." KOAKD OF PCBnc WORKS. The Usual Mas, of Uoiltine Busi neetti Trammeled.

Mr. Wasson, who had a commitment from the county court at -Milwaukee to confine the senator in the insane asylum here for two years as an inebriate. The superintendent, Dr. Wig genton, declined to admit Cottrill, ruling that the senator had been committed, not as a lunatic, but as ail inebriate, and. therefore, could not prop erly be made an inmate of the asylum. Cottrill, who was one of the revisers of the statutes, raised this point to Dr. Wiggen ton, and, after an elaborate argument, car ried the issue. His guardian, Wasson, finally came to terms, and it was arranged that the senator should remain voluntarily, for the time being, until the matter can be decided by the state board of supervision.
