Mayor Kick must be out of the city.
Whenever the mayor goes away the Pioneer
Press falls to abusing his administration.
The burthen of its dyspeptic attack on the
city government yesterday was, -what its
inauguration painted, a restoration of the
gamblers. Upon the mind of a stranger
the leading editorial in yesterday's Pioneer
Press would leave the impression that all
the gamblers in the country from Massa
chussetts to Mexico were flocking to the
"ripened pastures of St. Paul," and that
they were becoming as thoroughly en
trenched in ; lawless power as the cattle
barons in the Indian territory. When, as a
matter of fact, there is no city in the Union
to-day* so thoroughly exempt from the vice
of gambling as St. Paul. The Pioneer
Press says "the gamblers are viola
ting the laws and outraging public opinion."
The mayor and tjjief of police ask our con
temporary to lo^e complaint against any
offender, and give ample pledge that the
Jaw shall be executed anil its violators pun
ished. If such a state of affairs existed as
is described by our contemporary the Globe
would only be too glad to lend its influence
in aid of any proposition to suppress the
vice. But in the absence of any proof that
it is so we cannot give our voice to a whole
sale denunciation of the city government,
to a condemnation of its officials, or to the
promulgation of a slander against the city.
Gamblers constitute a useless class and are
not entitled to recognition by society. The
individual who makes a living without
earning it deserves no countenance. The
laws of the land very properly makes gamb
ling a crime. The laws of society make the
gambler an outcast. His vocation is a patli
which leadeth to destruction. There is no
reason why any good citizen should give
encouragement to the gambler or should
render protection to his crime. The charge
that an excellent mayor would wink at the
vice of gambling or would consent to stand
in with the gamblers is a slander so base
that every respectable citizen of the city
feels moved to resent the {calumny. Mayor
Bice is too well known to the people of St.
Paul to require vindication in this matter.
His triumphant election by an unprece
dented majority in tho last municipal elec
tion, and that, too, in the face of most out
rageous attacks from the same source
whence they now emanate, is all the vindi
cation he needs.
Our seemingly incensed contemporary
permits its wrath to run away with its dis
cretion. When it is all boiled down,
the charge of a wide open
policy is • condensed to a statement
that bat three (rambling houses are known
to exist within the city limits and that they
are run with closed doors. It doesn't seem
to occur to our contemporary that there are
some rights of person and properly which
even a policeman is compelled to respect.
A man's house is his castle and when the
proprietor locks his gates the officers have
no right to enter without authority of law.
The policeman who forcibly enters another
man's house without a legal warrant is him
self a trespasser and a violator of law. If
gamblers are engaged in their unlawful
occupation behind locked doors, within the
limits of the city, and the Pioneer Press has
knowledge of the fact, then it is the plain
duty of that journal to lay the facts before
the proper officer and have a warrant issued
for the arrest of the offenders. That would
be doing a great deal better service for the
city than defaming its government and
abusing its officials.
Mrs. ."'f'xxiK Wallace Walk up, the
Eruporia lady who is in prison on a charge
of poisoning her husband, has written a
letter to a sister, in which she confesses
that she did purchase arsenic for the pur
pose of removing blotches from her face,
and that she also bought oxalic acid to re
move stains from silk, but denies that
either were given by her to her late hus
band. Mrs. Walkup's experience will at
least be a valuable lesson to ladies who are
in tho habit of using poisonous cosmetics.
It is probable that the Emporia lady is en
tirely innocent of the crime with which she
is accused, and yet as the result of her
indiscreet desire to preserve the beauty of
her complexion she has woven a chain
of circumstantial evidence around her
which may possibly take her to
the gallows, and in all probability
will give her a long term in the state
prison. She is a very handsome young
woman who evidently made use of her
good looks in providing herself with a rich
husband.. As is so often the case where the
marriage relation rests on a commercial ba
sis there was a great disparity in the ages of
bride and groom. The rich old gentleman
who went down from Emporia last winter
to visit the New Orleans exposition was
captivated by the attractive face and figure
of the youthful Southern belle, He ottered
her his hand and fortune to become his
bride. Tho temptation was too strong for
the giddy girl who preferred to possess
means with which to gratify her taste for
dress and display to a home of humbler
conditions where love could reign regardless
of the exterior adornments. In less than
two mouths the husband dies in
the agonies which result from
arsenic poisoning, and immediately the eyes
of all the world rest upon the young widow
with suspicion. And this suspicion is in
tensified Into a firm conviction that she is
amnrdress, because it is discovered that
she had bought arsenic of a neighboring
druggist. Circumstances make a very strong
case against the lady. That the victim died
a violent death is proved beyond dispute,
for he died with all the symptoms of arsen
ical poisoning, and a post mortem examina
tion revealed the presence of arsenic in the
system in sufficient quantity to produce
death. The only person in the household
who is known to have had arsenic was the
one who had the best opportunity to give it
to him. And the prosecution will show that
she had a motive for the murder, for the
unfortunate circumstance of disparity in ages
and fortune furnishes the theory. And yet,
if Mrs. W.VLKur Is.innocent of the crime,
she has no one to blawe for her misfortune
but herself. Dissatisfied with her station
in life and not satisfied with the beauty of
form and face that Gnu had given she at
tempted to improve upon the work of her
Creator by adding an artificial beauty, which
required the use of poison. By yielding to
the weakness of pride she has involved her
self in a trouble which must result in the
wreck of her young life, no matter how the
trial in court may terminate. It is another
•forcible illustration of the truth of the wise
man's proverb"Pride goeth before a
The Germans possess a secret method of
preparing rice for market, by which they
impart to it that peculiar gloss which has
given [their rice so high a commercial
value. It occurred to Secretary Bayard
that it would be a valuable secret for Amer
ican producers to possess. Accordingly lie
instructed the consuls to procure all the in
formation possible on the subject. To show
what a stupid set of consuls we have, they
went direct to the German rice merchants
and requested them to give the necessary
information, and now they express .surprise
at the discourtesy of the parties interested
who flatly refused to give their secret away.
It seems never to have occurred to the
state department that a secret in trade is
just as precious a monopoly 10 a German
merchant as it would be to an American, or
that our German cousins know about as well
how to protect their own interests as we
do. It is very laudable in the state depart
ment to seek such information as will in
crease the number and value of our indus
tries. But the secretary of state will first
have to learn the ordinary methods of busi
ness before renewing his attempt to worm
out of the German merchants a secret of so
much value to them. Some day some en
teprising American rice dealer will offer a
sufficient inducement to a skilled employe
on the other side to come to this country
and take an interest in such a business.
And then the state department will be sur
prised that it didn't think of that plan be
The v social star of Mr. Babry Wall,
the young man who acquired distinction in
New York club circles as the king of the
dudes, is in eclipse resulting from financial
embarrassment. Just three years ago the
young man came into possession of property
worth £300,000, and since that time has
figured in public prints both in this country
and in Europe as the prince prodigal. Not
even excepting Oscais Wilde, the New
York dude prince acquired the reputation
of being the most gorgeous swell of the
day. According .to the statement of an
j Eastern paper Mr. Wall possessed a 1 suit
j of clothes lor every day iv the year, and
owned no less than 500. pairs of trousers.
When he traveled he carried more trunks
than a priina donna. He was never noted
for quiet colors or patterns in the matter of.
raiment, and as a general thing his apparel
was such as to attract attention wherever
he went. He led the fashion among tho
young men of his own set, and when Barky
Wall appeared in scarlet neck scarf, >
striped blue vest with brass buttons, a col
lar that raised his ears, a monocle and pat
ent leather shoes with yellow '■ uppers, the
front of the Brunswick at once blossomed
with gilded youths similarly arrayed.
Mr. Wall's embarrassment will bring
grief to the hearts of many tailors and boot
makers, and may possibly bring tho dude
kingdom into a decline. But to the minds ;
of sensible people it Is only the verification ;
of the old adage: •'Fools and their money j
soon part." r;'?|
According to recent reports from Wash
ington the new system of checking off the
business of each local land office is proving
a great success. Instead of sending tho in
spectois hither and thither to look after iso
lated cases of fraud brought to the atten
tion of the office, and having the time of
the inspectors frittered away in expensive
travel, Commissouer Spakks a few weeks
ago adopted a new plan for tho work of
these officials, whicJi is being carried out
with astounding results.' A special from
Washington, explaining the new system,
says the inspectors take one township at a
time, examine every entry without ex
ception, and ascertain if each individual en- j
try man has complied strictly with the pro- j
visions of the laws relating to homestead, j
pre-emption, timber culture, mineral claim, j
etc. This new system is a virtual "clean
sweep," and the result is that many him- i
dreds of false claims are swept away and
the land restored to the public domain, j
The land office officials state that 90 per j
cent, of ail entries in New Mexico will bo j
held for cancellation, and that the Devil's |
Lake (Dak.) district is reeking with fraud i
and perjury. They also say that in Kansas i
and Nebraska fully 70 per cent, of all land j
entries are crooked and will be cancelled. j
Colorado is about as bad, and altogether j
throughout the entire West not 50 per cent. |
of all the imperfected land entries are free
from fraud.
The fact that the New York Tribune op
poses the improvement of our waterways is '
the best evidence that wo are on the right \
track when seeking to improve them. The i
Tribune asserts that water transportation j
does not cheapen railroad freight, but that !
the latter can only be accomplished by rail- 1
road competition. The current impression
that Jay Gould is the real owner of the
Tribune will be confirmed by this cheeky
proposition of that paper. If waterways
arc not a factor in cheapening transporta
tion, why is it that the railroad influences
are always at work to defeat their improve- j
ment. And how can railroad competition j
be successful when parallel lines are al
lowed to combine, as was recently done by
the Pennsylvania Central and Vandefbilt
systems? Such talk from the Tribune may
suit Mr. Gould and his railroad associates,
but it is wasting words to attempt to
stuff such argument into the ears of the in
telligent people of this country.
"The issues of war can never be settled
unless they are settled right," says the
lowa Republican platform, and the stump
orators on that side have caught up the re
frain and are ringing it all over the state.
The people on this side of the line had an
impression that the issues of the late civil
war were settled right. The people on the
other side of the line have now come to the
same conclusion with the exception of Gen.
Tooxius and Jefferson Davis. As the
matter now stands the two ex-confederate
leaders and the lowa .Republicans seem to be
the only ones left who are dissatisfied with
the results of the war. The lowa Republi
cans must understand that secession and re
bellion are long ago dead issues, and if they
do not like the way they were decided they
will either have to become reconciled or
11. H. Helper of North Carolina, a brother
of tho author of "Impending Crisis," favors
colonizing 1 the negroes in Africa. He says:
'Africa is the great final field of human re
demption, and it ought to be, and must be,
in my opinion, redeemed by the American
negroes. They are now, at least a very largo
percentage of them, fitted mentally, socially
—and a3 a matter of course physicallyfor
the great work. The American negro
and the African are one people by blood, and
the ties of blood demand that the Christian
ized black man should become the savior of
tho heathen black man. Tho American negro
is looking forward hopefully and prayerfully
to the establishment of a great negro nation
with laws similar to American laws, but this
he can never do outside of Africa, or some
one or more of the Great Antilles."
It is a little unfortunate that rain and fairs
come together. But it generally happens,
and there id no help for it as long as fairs
continue to be held along- about the equinoc
tial season. In view of this fact the mana
gers of fair associations are in the custom of
bracing themselves up in preparation for a
rainy day or two, so there is not so much dis
appointment after all. The weather set in
yesterday just as though the clerk of tho ele
ments was of opinion that Col. Kino was
still running the Minnesota state fair.
Os behalf of the visitors who were being
choked by the dust at the fair grounds yester
day's Globe expressed a desire for a sprink
ler. No sooner was the wish expressed than
the windows of heaven were opened and the
thirsty earth received a sprinkle which will
last during the fair season. If there is any
body who wants anything all that has to be
done to have the wish gratified is to advertise
it in the Globe.
The grand phenomenon of a total eclipse of
the sun. which took place yesterday, was not
visible in our hemisphere. The path of the
totality commenced near the Eastern coast of
Australia, then crossed New Zealand and
ended at the South pole. In imitation of an
Irish bull it would bo safe to say that if it had
been visible in this section it wouldn't have
been observed.

It is curious to see the lowa Register favor
ing Prohibition in one breath and with the
next tongue-hushing Gillette for being of
the same notion. It is always the way. If a
Republican hasn't a monopoly he doesn't
want anything.
The inclement spell of weather we are now
undergoing is the regular fall equinoctial
storm. The fact that it has come in advance
of calendar time is only the result of Minne

Race of tho Yachts.
New Yokk, Sept. —At 7 o'clock this
morning there was to all appearances as
little prospect of a race as yesterday. There
was not enough wind to rufllo the.sea, ex
cept when an occasional little pull' came,
which made the white sails that hung lazily
on the craft about the harbor flap a second
or two and fall down as limp as before.
Looking seaward the water was a smooth
as glass and not a sail was in .si(.lit. There
was a thick haze in the distance. To
an ordinary landsman it looked as if there
was no chance for a good wind, but those
accustomed to scan the signs of the weather
predicted a brisk breeze before 11. The I
vessels soon began to arrive, first singly
and then by twos and threes, until by 8:35
a. in. the lower bay was again full of
yachts. Near Sandy Hook dock the Puri
tan was riding at anchor, while further in
i the bay the dark lines of the Genesta made
! themselves visible, as the haze began to
clear away. The sea- was occasionally
I ruffled by catspaws, the intervals between
each puff of wind growing less and showing I
that the wind waf strengthen ing. At 9:30
■ a. m. the wind veered round to the east and
i the yatchts in the horse shoe were
There was, however, at this time very
i little wind and slender prospects of a race.
| There was not a soul in sight within two
: miles of Scotland or Sandy Hook light
: ships. Eager groups of people kept a sharp
: lookout for the black hull of the Geneva or
! the snowy-white stripe of the Yankee sloop,
I by which she was readily distinguished yes
temay. There was a considerable amount
of betting on the Genesta, one sanguine
Englishman had the hardihood to double
his bet on her. The backers
of the Puritan, however, -were equally
sturdy in their defense of the
American sloop. "When the yachts were
under sail and were beating "toward the
hook the Puritan was greeted with enthu
siastic cheers. The excitement rose with
the wind and the betting which had begun
to Hag became brisk, with large odds on the
Puritan. When the yachts came in view
from Sandy Hook, the Genesta and the
Puritan were in close company and making
sail for the Scotland light ship. Tho red,
white and blue pennant of the Puritan was
first seen, The yachts were less than fifty
yards apart when off the highlands at 11:20
o'clock. The skipper of the Genesta pointed
in an endeavor to take the latter's wind
away. The captain of the Puritan believed
he could cross the Genesta's bow and tried
to do so. The result was a foul in which
| the Genesta's bowsprit was carried away
and the mainsail of the Puritan badly torn.
The consternation on the judge's boat and
on the yachts was great, and those who
were not near enough to see were afraid
that the yachts were injured below the
water line. It was a foul pure and simple
upon the part of the Puritan and was
due to the fact that her skipper
thought he could bring her before the
wind faster than he did. The hole in
the Puritan's mainsail is in the after-leech,
in the lower corner, and, of course, ren
ders her useless. It was only by luck that
further accidents were averted, for after
the collision all the visiting and attendant
yachts ran up close to the Puritan and
Genesta, and several fouls occurred. The
committee ruled the Puritan out, and told
Sir Kichard Sutton that he might sail over
the course if he wished. The latter
promptly declined- the offer with thanks.
No one was injured. Both boats were
towed "to Statea Island, and will probably
race on Friday.

JLively Cricket Game.
. Detroit, Sept. B.—The cricket match
between the English cricket team and the
Peninsulars of this city resulted in a
victory for the visitors. The score was 118
to 253, with an inning to spare. The score
of the first inning of the Peninsulars
was sixty-vine and in their second they
made forty-nine runs. Good playing was
seen on both sides, but the English team
were so much superior to the Peninsulars
that there was no question as to what the
result would be.
Express and Railroad.
Interest in the suit between the Wells-
Fargo and Northern Pacific Express com
panies which is pending in the United
States supreme court is being revived as the
time for the case approaches. It will be
remembered that last November a decision
was rendered by the Oregon supreme court
restraining the Northern Pacilic company
from interfering with the Wells-Fargo
company and granted the latter company
the privilege of operating over the Northern
Pacifferoad and branches. The Northern
Pacific company appealed from this decision
to the United States supreme court, and the
Wells-Fargo put up $25,000. which if the
case was decided against it, this money was
to be paid to the Northern Paciiic company
providing It could show that it was dam
aged to that extent. It may be, however,
that the case will not come up for trial.
The St. Louis, Iron Mountain & Southern
road about a year ago put the Adams and
the Pacific Express companies off its line
and got an injunction from Judge Miller re
straining them from coming on again for
some time, and the railroad company car
ried the case to the United States supreme
court. This case is a similar one to the
Northern Pacific and Wells Fargo, and as
the case comes up for hearing in November
these companies will abide, most probably,
by the action of the court In the other case.

Singular Incident.

New Haven, Sept. 8. —A curious inci
dent occurred while services were being
held in the Congregational church in East

Sunday, as the pastor, the Key. Mr. Clark,
gave out his text. A dove which had made
its way into the church represented, flew
down from its perch in the gallery and
alighted on the large bible from which tho
minister was reading. The bird remained
near the pulpit during the rest of the ser
vice and at the Close fluttered to the pastor's
head. It was afterwards discovered that
the bird belonged to a small boy and for
some reason or other followed its owner to J
church. The preacher's text was, I saw i

Cleveland, 0., Sept. —In the North
Ohio Methodist Episcopal conference at
Berea to-day a resolution declaring that no
Methodist preacher occupying the pastoral
relation has a right to become a candidate
for a political office, was defeated by
a vote of 57 to 50. A heated
discussion was precipitated by tho
resolution, and one clergyman who is a
candidate on the Prohibition ticket for
member of the assembly, declared that if
the resolution passed he wanted to be placed
on the superannuated list. Bishop Merrill
of Chicago declared that no Methodist
minister has a right to mingle in politics.
A resolution declaring the conference not
responsible for the individual or the politi
cal alliances of any minister or layman was

Fall Political lights.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, Sept. Tho political
campaigns in Ohio, Virginia and New
York continue to attract a good deal of at
tention here. Arrivals from those states
are the subjects of persistent interviews,
and the situation is a good deal discussed.
The general impression with those who
do not permit their political feel
ings to take the place of
their judgment is that the Ohio
Republicans have made a mistake* in the
bloody shirt business. An Ohio Republi
can, who has been several years a voter
and knows some things, if not more, said
in the hearing of your correspondent very
recently that ho hoped the party would be
beaten in his state. "I am a Republican,"
he said, "anil always have been. I owe the
Democracy nothing and have no favor to ask
of them, but I am willing to confess that I
would not be at all sorry to .see the Repub
licans beaten in Ohio this full. 1 am tired
of the bloody shirt and have not a particle
of sympathy with the party in this cam
paign because of its course In this respect.
John Sherman, who ought to have known
better, opened the campaign with a
blood y suiut
speech, which was so bad that Foraker has
been spending most of his time since in try
ing to explain it away. i don't profess to
be much of a politician, or know what
is the best material for the manufacture of
enthusiasm, but I confess that i am
thoroughly disgusted with the entire matter."
Word comes from Virginia that the contest
there is growing, very bitter. There Isa
good deal of curiosity felt to see what will
be the result of Mahone's efforts to unite
the two wings of the Republican party,
the colored element and the readjusters.
Mahono is very smart, very rich,
and not any too scrupulous about
his methods. If lie succeeds
in keeping the Republicans, who have been
lighting him of late in the traces, he will
make the light a very close one. He is
giving it his personal attention, hustling
about over the state day and night, organ
izing the party, using his own money Freely
and all that ho can get from the North,
and making the fight a very hot one. He
knows of course that his fate
as a member of the senate depends
upon it. He is giving his personal atten
tion to doubtful counties and the organiza
tion of the tight in regard to the legislature.
The governorship is a minor matter with
The Republican clerks must go. Talk is
cheap, but it is pretty evident to the care
ful observer here that the tune of the aver
in tho departments here Is limited. Talk
quietly with almost any Democratic head of
a bureau, and you will find him out of
patience with his clerks. They know their
business well enough, he admits, but they
know it too well. They are not in
sympathy with the party in power, or with
the chiefs of bureaus, and are both apolo
gists for those who preceded these chiefs
and spies upon the present ones. Their
chiefs believe, whether rightly or
not, that most of the annoying stories
which find their way Into print
about their personal weaknesses
come from these clerks, who, as they know,
have no effection for them. The result will
be, it is pretty evident, a gradual weeding
out of Republican employes on one
pretense or another, and the
substitution of others. Nor will the
civil service law prevent the selection of
Democrats as their successors. When a
chief of a bureau wants a new clerk or two
to till vacancies he makes a requisition on
the civil service commission for
some names of persons who have
passed examinations. They send him two
or three times as many names as he has
places to till, giving the standard of their
examination, their residence, etc. It is the
easiest thing in the world for him to find
out from some faithful Democrat in their
section what tho politic; of each
is and to select the Democrat From list,
giving as a reason, if he chooses to give any
that Republican clerks have proven them
selves not in sympathy with his adminis
tration, and that the Democrats are likely,
therefore, to be the more ellicient.

An Offensive Partisan.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, Sept. B.—Some of Public

Paris, Sept. B.—A majority of news

anti-German feeling provoked throughout

a revolution in that country, as the people
manifest a hostile feeling towards King Al

Ex-Queen Isabella of Spain. in an inter

an amicable settlement of the difficulty be
tween Spain and Germany. Th Figaro

of the German gunboat who recently occu
pied Yup has been ordered by his govern
ment to evacuate it. The settlement ol
the difficulty, both papers say, is due to
Emperor William's having" taken the in

Mr. Stead, editor of the Pall Mall Gazette,

Coombe and Mr. Jacques and Mrs. Maury,
the defendants in the Eliza Armstrong
abduction case, was resumed at the Bow
street police court this morning. Mrs. Jar
rett, on the opening of tlie court," began
crying. Mrs. Armstrong, the mother of
Eliza, testified that Mrs. Jarre obtained
her daughter from her on the pit of need
ing the child to assist In the housework of
her borne. The witness scouted the idea
that she knew nothing of tho character of
Mrs. Jarrett, other than was represented
by the prisoner herself (that she was a per
son of respectability), and denied in the
most emphatic manner that she had sold
her daughter for Immoral purposes. Upon
cross-examination Eliza Armstrong stated
thai her father, mother and six children
lived in one room. She admitted that with
the exception of the indignities referred to
in her testimony yesterday, her abductors
had treated her kindly.
Eliza, on her further cross-examination,
frequently contradicted herself, and her
evidence conflicted with that of her mother.
She confessed that she did not go to sleep

chloroform, was applied to her nose, dar

prise :i of a medical examination. Mrs.
Armstrong was examined. She was
bold and defiant, and vulgarly abused Mrs.
Jarrett and Mrs Russell and counsel for the

for an assault and once for using obscene
language on the street, and thai she was
not drunk the night Eliza departed from
