S.The most alarming reports are current here regarding i the loss of life and property at Washing- i ton court house, where a cyclone gutted the city to-night. Help will be sent at 3 o'clock to the destitute families. At Plain City, eighteen mile from this city, a car riage factory and mill were demolished and other buildings unroofed* This place is on a direct line north of Washington court house and along south to the Ohio river the track of destruction is reported in like j manner. SCENES OF IIOKKOn. Springfield, 0.. Sept. «.;.— A terrible i cyclone struck Washington court house, a j city of 4,000 inhabitants two miles west of j here, at 8 o'clock this evening and almost j literally swept it from the earth. It came j from the northwest and broke upon the j town very suddenly, carrying everything i before it. Tee tornado swept up the main I business thoroughfare and rained almost every business block on it. at least forty or ! fifty in all. Hardly a private residence in the town escaped- fully forty buildings go ing down. The Baptist, Presbyterian and I Catholic churches suffered the com- | mon fate. The Ohio Southern I Pan Handle narrow guage, the depot was j blown to smithereens and every building i in the vicinity was carried away, making \ ingress and egress almost impossible. Every i line within a circle of two nii'es is down. ; It is utterly impossible to get accurate de- i tails of this catastrophe. The only reports : that can be gotten are through an operator ; who tapped two miles west of the town and j is sitting in a heavy rainstorm to work his instruments. The panic-stricken people i were taken completely unawares and fled from the buildings in every direction through the murky darkness. A mad frenzy seemed to seize them and they hur ried hither and thither in their wild distrac tion, little knowing whither they were flee- ' ing. After the whirlwind; which lasted about ten minutes, a heavy rainfall set in, i "which still continues unabated at this writ ing. As soon as a few cooler heads recov ered their senses searching parties were or ganized and the .sad work of looking for the dead began. So far fifteen bodies have been recovered from the debris of various ruined buildidgs, and the dreary work is just beginning to get under way. Its probable i as many more will be found before morn- j ing. The glimmer of lanterns procured from fawn houses in the vicinity and the ' few houses left standing* in the village is the onls light the men have to work by. Two or three bodies have been stumbled upon in the middle of streets, • where they were stricken down by flying brick or tim bers. The cellars of houses and every sort of refuge were tilled with shivering people, huddling together in the vain attempt to keep warm. One babe has died from ex posure. The morning trains will carry plenty of assistance, but strange to say no bodyhasyet thhougt of sending a special train to the scene of the catastrophe. IN" MICHIGAN. Detroit, Sept. 7. —Specials from Adrian and Teciimseh report cyclones as having visited these localities and having done con siderable damage to property. A number of buildings were wrecked and wheat shocks were generally de moralized. At Adrian a fanner named Edwards was in his barn with two hired men when the storm struck the building, completely wrecking it. Edwards was se verely Injured and th ■ two men were hurt, but not seriously. The cyclone was fol lowed by au exceedingly heavy rain. Tlie Crew Drowned.

It appears from general laws of ISSS that the legislature at its last session passed the j following act: Chapter 816. An act to provide for an in- I dcx digest of the Hiinnesota reports, i Section 1. Authorizes the secretary of state | to contract for furnishing to the state 300 I copies of an index digest of Minnesota ro | ports, at not exceeding $5 per copy of the completed work. Sec. 2. Said work shall be prepared by such persona and in such manner as the judges of i the supreme court shall designate and ap prove; to be a full and complete index to i volumes one (1) to thirty-two (32) inclusive, ! of tho Minnesota reports; shall be printed on ; paper equal to thai used in Minnesota re i ports, bound in law sheep, and ready for de | livery in one year from the passage of the net. Sec. 3. The volumes furnished to* the state jto be distributed as follows: To the several I departments of state, to the judges of the I \ supreme court and supreme court reporter, j ! the several judges of the district courts and ; judges Of probate one copy each,to the clerks I of the district courts one copy each, state j librarian ton copies, the Minneapolis Bar as j sociation library two copies, the remaining copies to be delivered to the state librarian to s.uely keep for further distribution by j law. See. 4. The sum of $1,500 or as much as may bo necessary, is appropriated to pay for said books. The act t*> effect from its pas ! sage. The history of this raid upon the state j treasury, as read between the lines, and i gathered from the journals of the senate ; and house of representatives, is both cv i rious and instructive. It will be remem ! bered that the rules of the senate and house j require that "every bill or resolution intro ! duced shall have prefixed thereto the name I of the person introducing it*' (Senate rule 185, house 41). Notwithstanding these ; rules the first notice of this legislative waif, i without parentage and akin to nobody, is • to be found in the senate journal, at j page 255, in these words and figures: | "The committee on the judiciary intro- I duced S. P. No. 419, a bill providing for an I index digest of the Minnesota courts, which was read the lirst time and ; referred to the committee on finance." : This committee reported back "S. F. No. 419, A bill to provide for an index digest .of Minnesota Reports, recommending its j passage—(p. 265) — At page 367 this en j try appears: "S. F. No*. XXX 419 were j read a second time the committee of the i whole recommended that S. P. 419 be j • passed, and the committee of engrossment I i reported '•S. P. 419 was correctly en ; grossed," and the same was passed Feb. 24, 1885. The next day the secretary of the senate : reported to the senate (p. 436) the passage i by the senate of "S. P. No. 419. To provide index digest i for Minnesota reports." At p. 438, House Journal, this entry appears: "S. F. 4:; 1 A bill for an act to provide j an index digest to the Minnesota Reports, | was read first time and was referred to the i committee on judiciary, who repotted and recommended its passage. House Journal, p. 533, this entry appears— reading iof senate files —"S. F. Nos. 379, XXX 419, XX and others. There was no second reading of the bill, as the constitution requires. March 4. 1885, (page 623 house journal) this entry was made. "S. F. No. 419. A bill for an act to pro vide an increase digest to the Minnesota re i ports was read the third time and mit upon its final passage, passed and the title agreed to. On same day, (senate journal 539) the chief clerk of the house announced to the senate the passage of XXX. "S. F. 419. To provide for increasing digest of Minne sota reports." In the last moments of the session the committee on enrollments in the senate re ported "S. P. Xos. 419 and over one hun dred other numbers," of S. F"s. correctly enrolled. We have in this short view: First—A bill for an index digest of courts. Second—And without change to amend ment it turns up next as an index digest of reports. Third —S. F., read by their numbers in stead of reading the bills represented by those numbers. Fourth—S. F., Xo. 449 (and not 419), was reported to the house as having passed the senate. Fifth—The title of the S. F. 449 is re ported to be "To provide index digest for Minnesota reports." Sixth—The next it appears "A bill for an act, etc.," and by this title it passed the house. Seventh — bill was not read a second ' time in the house. Eighth—Reported back from the house under still a different title, in "To provide for indexing digest of Minnesota reports. It would seem from the foregoing that this little "bantling," born out of lawful j wedlock, has lost its "identity" in the I mazes of legislation, so that the veriest tyro in judicial or legislative proceedings will at once know that it is unconstitutional and void. We deem it unnecessary to enlarge upon the provisions of the act itself. The secre tary of state is authorized to contract for 300 copies of a book that is yet to be gotten up and nothing seems to be fixed about it except the price. The judges of the su preme court are to designate and approve the preparation of the work. A pertinent j I inquiry might here be made as to what price and by whom is to be paid the "per sons" designated to do the work. And what are the judges to be paid for their supervi sion of the work? Or is this to be a labor of love on their part? But then, one of the most interesting features of the act is the persons who are to be furnished the book. The departments of state, the municipal courts; how many are there of them? Would it not be better to furnish these fel lows with spelling books, rather than an in- j dcx to reports not in their possession? What use have the clerks of district courts with such a work? Ten copies to the state librarian; one would do as well. The re maining copies to be safely kept for future sale. Only the modest little sum of 81,500 is set apart for this job. We hazzard noth ing in saying that if this was let out to the lowest bidder, as the other public j I printing and publishing is done, that the i work could be done for one-half the money, to say nothing of the sale to lawyers over and above the 300 copies sold to the state. If there are any persons desirous of enter ing the field as law writers and publishers, they ought to be left on the same footing as other private individuals and enterprises. The main purpose of this publication is in this public way to call the attention of the Hon. Fred M, Baumbach,secretary of state, and Hon. W. J. llahn. attorney general, to the legal aspects of the case, and to in voke their aid in protecting the interests of the citizens of Minnesota. And still there's more to follow. Law.

WEDNESDAY MOR^ESTQ SEPTEMBER 0, TEN PAGES. DAKOTA'S CONVENTION Delegates in Session at Sioux Palls, Talk ing On the Question of Division of the Territory. A Resolution Presented That the August Body Adjourn Sine Die is Effeot tually Sat Upon. " Prohibition in lowa — Probability That the l'roseut Law Will Not Soon !".«■ Disturbed. News from Various Points of tlie Northwest Gleaned by Globe Correspondents*. The First Bay. Special to the Globe. SiOUX Falls, Dak., Sept. B.—At the caucus of delegates held this morning about sixty were present. N. I. Lowthier of Grant county was made chairman, ;iud C. M. Reed of Solly county secretary. The nominations made for officers of the con vention were: A. J. Edgerton, Yankton, president; John Cain. Chamberlain, secre tary; S. M. Avery. Sioux Falls, assistant secretary; M. B. Kent. Ellc Point, sargeant at-arms. The convention was called to i order at 12:20 by Secretary Teller, and ; sixty-six delegates answered to their names ion roll call. The convention was opened with prayer by A. J. Jamison of Sioux Falls. The delegates then took the pre scribed oath of office, and the otticers nominated by the morning i caucus were unanimously elected, J and then sworn in by Secretary Teller. Presiding Ottieer Edgerton then took the gavel and delivered from manuscript a short but well chosen address, which was received with applause and seeming satisfaction. Five mote delegates having arrived, they were sworn in, making the membership seventy-one. Some prelimi nary motions were indulged, when Judge Moody moved a committee of seven be ap pointed by the president on rules and order of business, and G. C. Moody of Lawrence, T. D. Kanouse of Sanborn, J. A. Ward of Hughes, W. W. Brookings'of Minnehaha. 11. J. Campbell of Yankton, D. Beller of Hutehinson and Henry Neil of Giant were appointed. A resolution was passed in structing the president to invite the resi dent clergy to open the sessions with prayer, and the first fun of the convention began when Delegate Neil of Grant county intro duced the following resolution: Whereas, The Sixteenth legislative as sembly of the territory of Dakota assumed the rijrht to authorize the eallinjr of a con stitutional convention for that portion of the territory south of the forty-sixth parallel, a movement which oupht to have its power from the people themselves of that power .of the territory affected thereby, anl. Whereas, it i? not the desire of the people j of this territy that the same should bo di vided and said southern portion admitted ; separately to statehood, but that they desire admission as a whole, therefore be it Resolved, That this convention do now ad journ sine die. Mr. Neil moved the adoption of his reso lntion and was immediately seconded, but as promptly came a motion to lay on the table, which upon roll call, was adopted by a vote of 59 ayes to 13 noes. A recess was then taken until 4 o'clock. At 4:30 the con vention was called to order and nothing of importance transpired, except to receive the report of the committee on rules providing for the several standing committees, which was adopted without dissention. The con vention then adjourned until 9 o'clock to morrow morning, when the president will announce the committees and the committee on rules will present their further report of order of business. Prohibition Probabilities. Special to the Globe. Dks Mouses, la., Sept. B.—There is no probability at all that the prohibitory law will be disturbed by the next legislature. While the opposition may get control of the lower house, there is no probability that they can of the senate. At the last session they had but eleven votes in the senate. Of the fifty members of the senate thirty hold over, leaving twenty to be elected this fall. There are also two or three vacancies to be filled, caused by death of members. Of the opposition there is but one place to fill, that of Senator Hall of Burlington. The follow ing is the vote of the prohibition bill: Yeaß—Abraham,* Barrett, Bro^n,* Cald well, Carson, Chambers, Chubb, Clark,* Cot ton,* Donnar, Duncan, Eastman, Gault, Gil lett. Glass, Hemingway,* Hunt,* Hutchison,* Kawarar,* Larrabee,* Lojran,* McCoy, Mc- Dcnough, Marshall, Miles, Nichols,* Poyneer,* Kobinson,* Russell,* Smith,* Steph en.-', Sudlow,* Sutton, Whaler and Wilkin—36. Nays —P.aker,* Bayle.ss. Bills, Bloom, C\u\'. Cosbazb, Graves, H.vll, Hender?ox, Hendrie. Eothekt, Rtder and Whiting— 23. Absent or not voting—Jonxsox and Sweeney. Those marked with a star are to be filled at next election. Those in small capitals are Democrats. It will be seen that all the Democrats except one voted against the bill. Two Republicans, Bills and Hotherr, voted with them. All the Democrats hold over but one, who will vote as he did the last session. Of the Republicans, those to to be elected are from Prohibition districts, except two, and these, under the present status of affairs, are as likely to send a Dem ocrat as a Republican. It will require the return of seven Prohibition senators to con trol the senate, as Senator Gault can be re lied on to vote with them. Pistols and Clubs. Special to the Globe. Aberdeen, Dak., Sept. B.—An encoun ter took place on Main street yesterday be tween Hon. B. E. Ilutchinson. receiver of the United States land office, and J. K. Dayton, formerly of Minneapolis, in which pistols and clubs were drawn, but neither party seriously injured, owing to the timely interference of friends. The trouble grows out of a decision recently rendered by Re ceiver Hutchinspn affecting a valuable quarter section of land adjoining the city, to which Dayton claimed title, adverse to L. C. Dayton. The decision of the local land office was against both parties, hold ing the land subject to entry by the first legal applicant. Dayton was incensed at the receiver for going outside of the record in the case to offer him a personal insult in his decision. He met Ilutchinson on the street soon after the decision was made and abused him roundly. Hutchinson was ad vised by his friends to arm himself, which he did. Monday morning the parties met. when Dayton picked up a pice of scantling and was about to strike Hutchinson, when the latter drew a revolver. Just at this moment E. B. Bonnell, a clerk in the land office, struck Dayton, knocking him down. It is feared that the trouble is not yet ended, as Dayton declares he will whip Hutchin son on sight. Hawkeyc Corn Crop. Special to the Globe. Dcs Moixes, la., Sept. B.—lt is reported from Pleasantville that ears of corn are found blighted and a local shortage of 20 per cent, is estimated. Fanners think it may have been caused by the recent flight of I grasshoppers, devouring the silks as" they progressed. Muck anxiety is felt through out the state regarding corn, as the crop depends greatly on the weather. A killing frost follows the storm. It is claimed that only half the crop is now ripe. Corn Safe From Frost. Special to the Globe. Yauktok, Dak., Sept. S.—The corn crop is safe from frost. Many farmers are cutting their corn. Rainy weather has prevailed during the past week and farmers have been retarded thereby in their threshing. An Enormous Yield. Special to the Globe. Yaxktox, Dak., Sept. B.—-J. A. Pier son, a Yankton county farmer, has just threshed ninety acres of oats, from which he realized S,IOO bushels of oats, or ninety bushels to the acre, by actual machine measurement. MINNESOTA. Wincna. A special meeting of the board of trade j was held on Monday evening: The com mittee having the Rochester excursion proj ect in charge reported having obtained the j names of about 100 who would buy tickets to Rochester and return on Winona day, which is Sept: 17.... On inquiry. Secretary Phelps stated that the Winona and South ern railway scheme was progressing favor ably. He was surprised to see the large amount of interest manifested in it by Wi nona's heaviest business men, and thought there was no reason why, if the matter was properly pushed, there should not bo some of the grading done this fall The city council held its regular meeting on Monday evening. The report of the col lecter, Lorbeski of the ferry boat Van Gor don was read, showing the total receipts for the month of August to have been 5435.15. The application of Wisconsin families asking the council to allow their children free transportation on the ferry white attending school in Winona, was re ferred to the ferry committee. A proposi tion was received from John Zenk, offer iug to donate to the city a strip of land 100 feet in width, extending from the lake to the country road, provided the city would locate the new bridge so that it would lead past his farm, and provided also that the city would fix up the ground so donated together with the two springs which it con tains. The city accepted the proposition. Hastings. The sixth annual fair of the Hastings In dustrial association has been held and orders drawn for all bills incurred. In one sense, like all previous fairs held by the asso ciation, it was a grand success. The exhib its in every department were very fine. As an educational institution to farmers and stock raisers it was everything that could be expected, much of the finest stock of horses and cattle now on exhibition at the state fair was first shown here. Five or six head of thoroughbred cattle were sold on the grounds to be left in this vicinity. The receipts, about $1,500, will pay all premiums and other expenses, but while the above is true it is also a lamentable fact that the farmers, for whose exclusive benefit these fairs were conceived and for whom they are conducted, do not as a mass in the least appreciate their value, ana with a very few exceptions stayed at home; the work and the patronage came mostly from the citizens of Hastings David Thomp son has returned from his eastern trip Cashier Whitford of the German American bank has nearly completed his beautiful cottage on Seventh street, and Mr. George Emmerson has broken ground for one on the adjoining lot Supt. Lewis went to the state fair on Monday to put in place the educational exhibit of the Hastings public schools, but owing to the lack of space for the state educational exhibit only a part of his exhibit was unpacked, andj a distinct Hastings exhibit could not be made as was anticipated.

Chase, Mr. A. L. Ely, Mrs. J. E. George and Mr. Albert Uemenover, left over the Omaha, Monday, to attend the state fair at St- Paul this week Miss Addie Smith has returned home from her visit at Spring Val ley .. Reports are coming in from differ ent sections of the county to the effect that the late heavy frosts injured the corn crop to an extent that but about half a crop can be harvested, and that late flax was injured in about the same proportion. One promi nent farmer says that with half a crop of corn it will pay as well, if not better, than the same amount of ground in any other kind of grain, and that those who had corn were very well repaid for seed, time and ground used, though only half a crop can be gathered. Owatonna. Rev. J. 11. Dewart of the M. E. church was the recipient of a genuine surprise last night. At the Good Templars lodge he was presented with a silver cake basket as a birthday present. He was sent for to hasten home, being told a couple desired to see him. He told the lodge members he would go and join th« couple in wedlock, get his fee and return.

The long and hard fought McDonough will case in the probate court has reached a con clusion in the first contest. Judge Robinson sustaining the will. Notice of an appeal was given by the contestants. The attor neys in the case were i Hon. Martin Ryan and CoL W. F. Ball for the will, and the decision is a decided victory for ' them, as it I was hotly contested at every step for more j than four months by Mitchell & Tilly. It l has been stated that the contest was notable for the largo sum. over $100,000, comprised intricate and complicated points Involved, j the testimony being largely of an expert and scientific character, and the length of ! time occupied. The closing arguments took four days and were mostly of the ablest legal talent. This is the third big suit hero I In which Attorney Ryan has been the lead | ing counsel on the winning side, and he is i taking front rank at the bar, as well as a ' popular leader on the administration side in | politics. ' ' Aberdeen. Advices have been received by the Brown j county Democratic central committee from over thirty counties in the territory, where there has never before been a Democratic organization, saying that representatives j i will be present at the meeting here on the i I 33d. Thus we see the good already result i ing from the meeting. North Dakota es pecially will be well represented, as will I also the Black Hills. The opposition to the | movement in the Southeastern part of the i territory has apparently died .out, and it is j now generally conceded that the meeting will, if properly conducted, result in much good for the party. The Democratic club of Aberdeen, at its meeting Saturday even ing, appointed the proper committees to re ceive the delegates, and arrangements were made for the entertainment of from 258 to 300 guests. Nearly this many have signified their intention of being present. Gov. Ziebach and Ignatius' Donnelly have ac cepted invitations to be here. Several dele gates from Northern and Central Dakota passed through the city Monday morning bound for the Sioux Falls constitutional convention. It is apparent from the ap pearance of the delegates that very indiffer ent material has been selected to frame the proposed constitution. Most of the dele gates whom we have seen are strongly in favor of incorporating a prohibi tion plank in the constitution and some fa vor' the adoption of a woman suffrage clause It is estimated that nearly ten thousand people will be in Aberdeen next week in attendance upon the Grand Army reunion and the second annual fair of the Brown County Agricultural and Industrial society, which occurs on the |same dates, to-vvit: the 16th, 17th and 18th. All the necessary arrangements have been made for the entertainment of all who come. A thousand tents have been provided by the Grand Army folks, and immense supplies of hardtack, army beans, bacon, etc., are being stored in the commissary department. The fair buildings are being erected and the track put in condition. The owners of several local noted horses from Minnesota. lowa and Dakota have already signified their intention of entering for the free-for all trotting contest. ...Delegate Gifford passed through the city Monday, returning from the river and harbor convention at St. Paul. An attempt was made to interview him on some of the leading political topics, but he seemed to bern ore interested in the flattering result of the wheatharvest in this locality than in politics. When asked re carding the probable results of the Sioux Falls convention and the meeting of the Democratic committeemen, he merely pulled his slouch hat down o\er his eye and remarked that the recent frost had done considerable damage to corn Yank ton. Delegates to the constitutional conven tion from this county left for Sioux Falls to-day. Under the law providing for the convention delegates receive 53.50 a day, and they may hold the session thirty days if they deem it necessary. However, it is thought the work of the convention will not occupy more than ten days. Dakota. IVewslets. Col. Mays, a New York politician of great influence, has been spending' some time in Dakota and has become greatly in terested in the state movement. The Yank ton Press says: He has been in Dakota a sufficient length of time to convince him self that the general government is treating us in a shabby manner, and being a con scientious American citizen, is accumu lating a reserve force of indignation over our condition which will expend itself when he again comes in contact*with his political acquantances in New York. Nearly all well informed visitors agree that with har monious action among the Dakota people, the territory can easily secure admission as a state next winter. Col. Barrett of the Aberdeen Republican, the leading Democratia paper of the center, has recently visited most of the towns of the south, and reports, as the result of his investigations, that the territorial division sentiment is practically dead where not long since it was the popular opinion. Huron and Pierre still cling to the forlorn hope of becoming the capital of South Da kota. The colonel has information that the meeting on the 22d will be the largest gath ing of Democrats ever held in the territory. The railroads are carrying for one and one fifth fare for the round trip. It is predicted that buffaloes will soon be as much a curiosity in any part of Dakota as a Republican official who resigns a good office out of courtesy to a Democratic ad ministration. The overcoats made of buf falo hides hare nearly doubled in price since last year. They have been generally worn in Dakota, but will soon rank in price with sealskins. The grand jury draws for the coming term of court in Trail! county comprises eleven citizens, about half the number, from the little village of Caledonia, and the edi tor of the Hillsboro Banner publishes an open letter to Judge McConnell, charging that the jury is packed and demanding in vestigation. Caledonia is building a court house and needs the jury. The work of prospecting for coal has been quietly carried on all summer in the north west part of Clay county, and there is great confidence that it will be fouud in paying quantities, as nine-feet veins have been struck in several places. Artesian wells in that section flow freely at a depth of 100 feet and less. One indication of the apprehension among Republican politicians of the South that the Aberdeen convention will favor unity and oppose division as a Democratic policy, is seen in a furious attack upon the body through the Chicago Inter-Ocean, which rs attributed to a well-known territorial official who does not live at Watertown. The Pickwana Press says the majority of the settlers in that region will refuse to obey the recent order from Washington to remove from the reservation. They will stay till put off by force. It is not likely they will be disturbed until they harvest the little crops they may have. Gov. Ziebach's paper understands that Scotland is to have machine and repair shops and be the end of a division on the Milwaukee road, which will be of almost as much value to the place as having a gov ernor. It would indicate also the extension of the railroad West. Gen. Grant aia Satirist* New Orleans Times. Gen. Grant was as little given to caustic speechs as to anger, but he was not without j the faculty of the aptest and most incisive observations. He was in Boston on one occasion, the guest of prominent members of his party, who, like himself, were at tacked by Senator Sumncr. One of these gentlemen, the owner of a pair of trotters, took Gen. Grant out behind them late one afternoon, and during the drive the con versation turned on Mr. Sumner. The Bostonian had many things to relate going to show how imperious the senator was, how impatient of outside counsel and how very vain, "and do you know, although standing so conspicuously before the world as a champion of morals and hu manity, he doesn't believe in the inspira tion of the Scriptures." The Bostonian, in delivering this, took the*reins in one hand and turned to his companion, as if to par alyze him by the statement. Gen. Grant, however, received the news without any especial sign. He took a long pull at his cigar, blew the smoke out of his mouth de liberately, and said quietly, "You don't astonish me at all. He didn't write them you know." The Bostonian was in ecstasy over the remark, and every club in town had the benefit of it that night.

B.—lt Is reported that the recent rumor that Bonanza Kackey intendes to buy the New York Herald grew out of tho fact that ho bat senatorial ambitions. Mackey is in Washington at present, stopping with his lawyer, Mr. Wood of San Francisco, who travels with him, and his presence here is inado the occasion of much gossip. The report of his desire to succeed Senator Jim Fair, his old partner, is not the least interesting part of the talk about him. As the story is told Mi-. Hacker is the mainspring of hU political aspirations. It is said that she wants her husband to be a senator, and that he has obligingly consented to satisfy her wishes. The gossips 6ay that Maekay'g candidacy is regarded as ■ settled affair, and that the electors of the state of Nevada are already re coning what their votes will be worth when the two millionaires, Mackey and Fair, come into competition at the next election. Mad;.-;. at present it said to be more popular of the two men in the state, but when election time comes round, of course pop ularity will have its price. There are not more than about V2OO voters in the state, and the 31,000.000 spent in buying a majority would make every one worth from $150 to S2OO, which is about the pres ent volua-lon. Mackey is supposed to be worth over 550,000.0D00. Fair's wealth looms up pretty close to these figures, and it is expected that competition will be keen and prices high at the next election for the state legislature, which will elect Fair's successor to the United States Senate. Mr. Mackey is silent on •tho subject, but it is declared that his main object in visiting Washington at present is to purchase a site whereon to build a palace that will dwarf the most magnificent residence in the cap ital. Mrs. Mackey it is said longs to dazzle the American capital with some of her splendid receptions which have aston ished Paris during her resi dence there. She cannot be the wife of a French senator, but she may be the wife of a millionaire senator from Ne vada, and save Washington from the social blight of dull Democratic economy. Lawler After Postal t ices. Washingtox, Sept. B.—A. large pile of paper neatly tied with red tape lay on Act ing Postmaster General Stevenson's desk to-day. A torn slip of paper pasted on top of the bundle bore the words: Mr. Lawler. "Those," said Mr. Stevenson in answer to a diiect question are papers in the fourth-class offices in Mr. Lawler's district. I ordered them placed on my table this morning, and I hope to be able to consider them by the middle of the week. I intended to have desposed of them long ago, but 1 have been so busy with the routine work of the office that 1 was competed to postpone their consideration. There have been few changes in Cook county. Two presidential officers Chicago and Oak Park have been rilled and nine fourth-class offices. There are In round numbers about 100 postmasters yet to be appointed. A private dispatch received from Congressman Lawler to-day announces that he will be in the city to-morrow. Scvitclinien on a Strike. Special to the Globe. Chicago, Sept. B.—The strike of the switchmen employed at the Fifty-fifth street yards of the- Pittsburg, Ft. Wayne & Chicago railroad, which was inaugurated yesterday, assumed large proportions to-day. All switchmen in the Chicago yards went out, and unless the trouble is soon settled, the business of the road will be seriously incommoded. Call for Duke soap at your grocer's.
