THE SOUTH SATISFIED., President Cleveland's Administration Ke- j garded as Able, Strong and Judicious. Ex-Minister Lew Wallace Descants Per tinently on the Politics of Europe. Republicans in Ohio Said to Boon tlie Run— A Successor to Min ister roster. Indiana's Constitution Makers Have aßeunion--llendricl£S on Civil Service. The South Satisfied With Cleveland. Special to the Gloi c. ton , Oct. s.—Gen. Joe Wheeler, the dashing Confederate cavalry man, is here looking after the wants of some of his constituents and struggling to keep them quiet "The fact is," he said to your cor respondent two days ago. '-the fact is our people are getting too impatient. They ought to realize the immense undertaking which this administration Has on its hands ami do all they can to help it. We have been strugglius and hoping and praying for years to get radical misrule taken off us in the South, and have it at last. Under the new administration prosperity is returning to us, and we ought to welcome it instead of quarreling about the offices. The fact is, one might as well look the matter squarely in the face, unless our peo ple stop quarreling about office and set to work to aid in making the present adminis tration a good one instead of trying to make it out a bad one we arc likely to lose the next i lection and find the Republi cans upon us again in the South. President Cleveland is making a good, strong admin istration, and if his party and people help him we shall have an era of prosperity anil be sure of Democratic success in the next national election." "How are the people of the South, gen erally speaking, pleased with the adminis tration thus far?" "Very well; the people generally are satisfied. it is only politicians and aspir antsi for.political honors that are making the trouble.*' Lew Wallace on ISulffaria. Bpecial to the Globe. New Youk. Oct. s.—Gen. Lew Wal lace, ex-mini to Turkey, looking hale and hearty, said at the Gilsey house to-day: "I do not think any action will be taken by Turkey until the signatory powers meet. The sultan lias too much,'common sense to run haphazard into war. He will await thi issue of the conference. In case of a disagreement between the powers probably the whole of Europe will be swept into hostilities—Russia, France and Italy on the one side and England and Austria on tin; other. Germany, guided by Bismarck, will endeavor to act as arbiter. Austria would take possession of Bosnia and Herzegovinia, and Russia would occupy Bulgaria and Rouinelia. The conference is most likely to result in statu quo. [I Is scarcely to be expected that Eu rope will go to war to further the ambitious plans of Prince Alexander of Bulgaria. Russia is always looking forward and keeps an eye on strategic points. Russia already has "a passage of the Danube, and with Roumelia she would have the Balkan mountains and clear the way any time into Turkey. The powers de 'ire to pluck the bird, but the question of division can never be satisfactorily ar ranged. Turkey understands fully that her position in Europe depends upon their rivalry. The small powers, each adjacent, want a slice of territory when a division occurs. Greece for her part would make would have a conflict with the ambition of Servia, so you see how many complications can arise on the Bulgarian question." I£i>s»nl>!t«-a«s on the ins. Special to the Globe. Washing Oct. s.—Representative Campbell of Ohio says the Ohio campaign is very quiet and, so far as Hoadly's per sonal efforts are concerned, well managed, closely handled and aggressive. Hoadly has attacked Sherman on his bloody-shirt farrago, and the people of the state are with the Democracy on that subject. They believe the campaign ought to be fought on live issues, especially upon questions of taxing and regulating the liquor traffic. Here, also, Hoadiy has Sherman and Foraker on the run. The Republicans are dodging and straddling, being neither for nor against prohibition. The Democrats declare against prohibition and in favor of license, thus leaving the war to be waged between the Republicans and Prohibition ists, while the Democrats quietly gather in the spoils. '•What do yon think the vote will be?" "My estimate is as follows: Hoadly :>JO,OOO, Foraker 330,000, Leonard 30.000. Tins is con jectural and liable to revision as the election approaches, but is probably not far from the truth." "As to the senatorial fight," Mr. Campbell continued^ "1 think the Democracy is divided. The recent numerous appointments of fourth class postmasters pleased the Democracy rery much, and strengthened the Deliefin the success of Mr. Cleveland. They believe, too, that still further dosi s of the same stim ulating cordial will be administered in the re moval of offensive postmasters of the second and third classes. They never have doubted Mr. Cleveland's high and honest purposes, but they have occasionally in-own impatient un der his necessary delays." A Successor to Foster. Special to the Globe. Washington, Oct. 5. —It is certain the appointment of a successor to Minister Foster will not be delayed much longer. Sec retary Bayard is said to be growing anxious to have the place tilled. There are devel oping some important questions calling for diplomatic attention. Ex-Minister Kasson has been invited to several long conferences by Mr. Bayard and it is known he has im pressed the secretary with the belief that Bismarck means to secure Cuba. Most of the Cuban debt is held in Germany and the liabilities are increasing at the rate of $12, --000,000 or so a year and now exceed the value of tin island. Spain will be forced into national bankruptcy and Germany, be ing the bisrgest creditor, will absorb Cuba. This is what Mr. Kasson predicts and Mr. Bayard realizes that he has a diplomatic problem on hand, which makes him some what anxious about a minister to Spain. Old Indianiani Assemble. Ixdiaxapolis, Ind., Oct. s.—Pursuant to a plan that the Hon. W. 11. English has been maturing for the past eight years, a reunion was held of the survivors of the In diana constitutional convention of IBr.r>. The body consisted of 150 members. Of these thirty-three are yet alive and nineteen answered the roll call. Prominent among them were Vice President Hendricks, Hon. W. H. English,secretary of the convention; W. S. Ilolman. Gen. George Whitfield Carr, president; Gen, William McKeeDunn of Washington, Judge Horace P. Boole, formerly of the supreme court. Among the absent are Gen. R. H. Milroy of Wash- j ington Territory, Gen. A. P. Havey and Christopher Graham of Red Wing, Minn. Mr. Carr .presided and Mr. English acted as secretary. There was a public meeting to night largely attended, at which several ad dresses were made. Among the speakers were Vice President Hendricks, Hon. W. H. English, Gen. Dunn and Col. Richard Taylor. Mr. Hendricks on Civil Service. Columbus, 0., Oct. s.—Vice President Hendricks in an interview stated that he presumed congress would engage in the re vision of the tariff during the coming ses sion. In reference to the civil service com- ! mission,and in answer to the question, ''Will j the president appoint men who entertain I the same views that characterized the Eaton, Gregory and Thoinan board?" J Mr. Hendricks replied: "No, sir, I think Mr. Cleveland will appoint men who," while pledged to the principles of civil service, will have a business-like concep tion of the duties of their positions and make their rulings more in harmony with the spirit that dominates political parties than the old board did." Tliey May >iot Go, However. Special to the Globe. Richmond, Wa., Oct. s.—Mr. J. S. Wise says that if Mr. Foraker, the Republi can nominee for governor in Ohio, is elected he will come to Virginia immediately after the election in his state and make several speeches. Other prominent Ohio Republi cans iv that event are expected to accom pany Mr. Foraker in his canvassing tour through Virginia. AMONG THE HO2SES. Death of Goldsmith maid. On Friday, Sept. 25, at Fashion Stud farm, Goldsmith Maid died after an illness i of only a few hours. The cause of death j ' was fatty degeneration and enlargement of the heart. She was one of the most famous marcs that ever lived, and her turf win i nings were enormous. She was foaled in 1857, at Deckertown, X. J., and was got by Alexander's Abdallah, son of llamble tonian, out of Lady Abdallah. Three of the produce of her dam met with violent deaths. One was fatally gored by a bull. I one ran against a scythe and killed herself and one was kicked to death by another horse. Goldsmith Maid was restless and full of spirit, and she was not tenderly I eared for in her youth. She was brought j i out by Mr. Aiden Goldsmith, after whom she was named, and was eight years old when she first scored for the word. She won her first race at Goshen, Sept. T. ISOS, and from that time on was very busy. AMONG THE HOUSES DEFEATED by her during her long turf career was Con fidence, Gen. Butler, Gen. Wilkes, Amer ican Girl, Hotspur, George Palmer, Lucy. Mountain . Boy, Rhode Island, Silas Rich, Henry, Occident, .judge Ful- | lerton, Camors, Glo.ster.. Red Cloud, Lula, Bodine, Lucille Golddiist, Rarus and Smuggler. She was the i first to beat Dexter record of 2:17 and great was the uproar which followed. She also was the first to trot in 2:14, which she did at Mystic park. Boston, Sept. 2, 1874. She repeatedly tried to lower this record, | but failed. Therefore we may conclude ! that 2:14 was her limit. She was a mare of ] wonderful vitality, butnotpure-gaited. She i had a habit of going into resting skips or j breaks when closely pressed. THE HARDEST HACK of her life, and probably the most exciting | one ever seen in America, was trotted at I Cleveland July 27, IS7O, when she was beaten by Smuggler after winning the first heat in 2:15% and the second in 2:l7J£- Her next race was at Hartford. Aug. 31, the same year, where she vanquished Smug gler and others. She was then 19 years old. Her last appearance in public was at Toledo Sept. 27. 1877. Budd Doble drove I her in nearly all her memorable races, and j the two became thoroughly well-known to | the people of the country, Mr. Henry X. Smith bred her, on her retirement to Fashion Stud farm, to Gen. Washington, son of Gen. Knox and the famous Lady Thome. The union was fruitful, but the bay colt dropped in 1870, ran against a fence and was killed. The second foal, a brown colt by I Gen. Washington, came May 15, ISSO, and is now in the stud of Fashion. He is a strong, well-muscled fellow, and is called Stranger. AS A TITREE-YEAr.-OLD he was driven just enough, single and double, to make him harness-wise. The third foal was dropped June 24, 1881, and is called Rosebud. She stands 15.3 and is j a counterpart of her famous dam. As a three-year-old Mr. Smith had her mated with Jay Gould. In subsequent years Goldsmith Maid was barren. She looked vigorous, but was done with the pains and delights of maternity. She had passed her twenty-eighth birthday when she laid down and died. She was a great pet at the farm, and responded to the stable name of Mamie. .She reigned a queen for many years, and the crown had passed from her brow to Rarus, St. Julien and Jay-Eye-See before Maud S. became firmly seated on the throne with a record of 2:08%. Near the judges' stand on the Fashion stud-farm track, close by the graves of Lady Thome and Tattler, a trench was dug, and the newly heaped earth marks the final resting place of the renowned Goldsmith Maid. She sleeps in noble company.Turf, Field and Farm. I^xliihitionoS Speed. On Thursday next at the state fair grounds Mr. Finkle's three-year-old colt, Lord Nelson, accompanied by Firebrand, Commodore Kittson's running horse, will make an attempt to lower the three-year old stallion record of 2:25^. Fannie With erspoon, Commodore Kittson's famous two mile mare, will be driven to beat the three mile record of Huntress. 7:21&. In addi tion to these, other events are being ar ranged for to make a good afternoon of sport. It is impossible to state this morn ing just what the program will be, as all the events are not fixed, but there will be enough to make an interesting occasion. mcc at lVlankato.

Veil Aralm, Jr. The produce of Commodore Kittson's stallion Yon Arnim is beginning to come to the front. Yon Anum, Jr., a three-year old, owned in Osbkosh by P. Delaney, made such a fine appearance at theOshkosh fair that the Times of that city speaks of him as follows: One of the most noticeable and admired blooded horses on the fair ground this week was the three-year-old stallion Yon Arnim, Jr., owned by P. Delaney of Wausau. The young stallion has good strains of blood in him. He was sired by Yon Arnim, he by Sentinel, full brother of Volunteer; his dam was Belle of Lexington, by Mohawk Chief, he by Iron Duke, out of Yon Arnim's dam. He took second money in the green stallion race on Tuesday, which was a creditable performance, as this was the ■ first race he had ever trotted, and he had ! been speeded but one mile before being brought here. lie also took first premium in the exhibit of three-year-old stallions. Yon Arnim, Jr.. is a handsome horse, and many praises of his appearance were heard. "His action is excellent, and he is very steady and not a flighty animal. It is Mr. De laney's intention to stand him here next season, and those who handle blooded stock should make a note of this fact. Dr. W. A. Culbreath. brother of Mr. Cul breath who was murdered by masked men at Edgefield, S. C. has sworn out warrants for the arrest of twenty-four persons implicated in the so-called lynching:, including: Memphis Culbreath, a son of the murdered man. ST. PAUL, TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 6, 18S5. HIS SECRET MISSION. Counselor Bro&head's Errand Abroad and the Success Attending it Made Public. Figures Showing Increase of "Work and Decrease of Expense in the Pen sion Office. The >7aval Advisory Board a Faree — Gen. Crook. ay be Transferred to Another Command. Court of Claims Resumes Its Sittings -- Poster's New Treaty With Spain. Mr. Broadncad-s mission. Special to the Globe. Washington, Oct. s.—Mr. James O. Broadhead of St. Louis, who went abroad live months ago as special counsel for the government, has returned, arriving in ; Washington yesterday morning. His mis i sion was to ascertain what testimony is to be found in the archives of the French gov ernment bearing upon the spoliation claims. He was not ejected to make up a case for j or against the claimants, but simply to gather information which would be of value in the adjudication of these matters before the court of claims. Mr. Broadnead is looking well, and says he feels in better j health than for some years. He was ! engaged almost incessantly in going i over the records and papers show ing the losses inflicted upon American commerce under the measures of the spoliation adopted by the French gov ! eminent in the beginning of this century. Some data, but not as much as was ex pected, was gathered with reference to the captures and the losses inflicted, and all this material will probably prove important to the government in the coming litigation. Mr. Broadhead comes back much earlier than he or the department of justice antici pated. He stated that he should try to make his report to the secretary of state to | morrow. He does not know yet whether it ! will be necessary to make another trip to France, but expects to go abroad in a differ ent direction in a few weeks. Tlie Pension Office in Good Hands. Special to the Globe. Wasiiixgton, Oct. —The following medical examiners for duty in the pension | office here have been appointed: Dr. It. L. i Wood of Kansas City, Mo.; John W. .Ray ; mond of Pilot Point, Tex., and George P. I Dubose of Sparta, Ga. They were ap pointed under civil service rules. Dr. Lewis B. Dayton has been appointed a medical examiner at Buffalo, N. V., vice J R. M. Daggett. The new special examiner system in the pension office, which went ; into effect last August is working admira bly. Five of the supervising special exam iners are on dnty here, and the other six teen, together with the examiners whom they had to have much of the time as as sistants, have been assigned to | the duties of special examiners. In this j way a net gain of twenty-live men has been | effected. Much duplication of work by su i pervising examiners in the field and the spe cial examiner's division in the main office is dispensed with, and equally satisfactory re sults have been secured. For years past the special examiner's division has barely been able to keep up with current work, but last month it did all the work assigned Ito it and reduced by 500 the number of cases in arrears. In August last the cost of each case which passed through the hands of the special ex aminers was $30 less than it was in August, ISS4, and there was a further reduction in September. The new management of the pension office is thus increasing the amount of work done and reducing the ; price of doing it. The average number of cases disposed of by each special examiner shows an increase. Kara! Advisory Uoard a Farce. Special to the Globe. Washington, Oct. s.—The naval advis ory board still exists, but it does nothing because there is nothing for it to do. Since the Roach-navy department difficulties, be ginning with the action of the secretary of the navy m regretting the report of the ad visory board, recommending the acceptance of the Dolphin and insisting upon additional trials and culminating in Roadie's failure and the seizure of the incomplete cruisers by the navy department, the advisory board has had no duties beyond defending this re port on the Dolphin, against the criticisms of the special board appointed to examine and report on her. The position of the ad visory board just now is a very curious one, and is a subject of general comment among naval officers. The existence of the board is authorized by law until the completion of the cruisers Chicago, Boston and At lanta, under their supervision. The secre tary of the navy intends to have these ves sels completed by the navy department, and to this end has had an inventory and appraisement of work and material made by specially appointed boards. The origi nal advisory board still has a legal exist ence, and according to law, will have the supervision of the work until the vessels are finished. It remains to be seen whether that supervision will be active or merely nominal. If they supervise it will be under the direction of the secretary of the navy, and, judging by his treatment of the board thus far. it would not be strange if they have little more onerous duties to perform than they have now. The existence of the board will terminate with the completion of the un finished cruisers. The board have nothing to do with the construction of the new cruisers, concerning which Commodore Walker's board reported recently. Crock .''lay Hare to Go. Washington, Oct. Information which has been received here privately shows beyond question that Apache scouts employed by Gen. Crook are leading the soldiers on a wild goose chase, affording Geronimo every opportunity to visit the reservation he deserted to supply himself with women, bucks and ammunition. A sentiment is rapidly working up in the in terior and war departments which it is be lieved will tend eventually to the removal of Gen. Crook to another command and the substitution of an Indian fighter with less faith in Indian faithfulness. The Court of Claims Resumes. Washington, Oct. s.—The court of commissioners of Alabama claims met this morning after its summer recess, and re sumed its consideration of business. Judge Harlan, the presiding judge of the court, made a public announcement of the recent decision of the first comptroller of the treasury, that the salaries of only such em ployes as were named in the organic act would be allowed in settling the pay ac counts of the court and said, that, there fore, if other employes continued in their present duties, it would be without the ex pectation that provision will be made for their pay by congress. The regular force have notified the court that they will con tinue in their present duties with that un derstanding. All the principal attor neys for claimants before the court have signed an agreement to pay certain sums of money to loan or advance the clerks or other employes of the court not to exceed the amount due to such persons as salary authorized by law. This action is taken on the ground" that the expenses hitherto incurred by the court is in the opinion of the attorneys just and reasonable, such as the court was authorized to incur; that all such expenses will first be deducted from the money now in the . treasury before the balance will be apportioned among their clients; that by reason of such fact such expenses are in the end to be paid by their clients, and that unless some provision is made for paying the clerks and employes :)he court will not be able to dispose of its business and the interests of their clients will suffer thereby. A New Treaty Brewinsr. "WAsniNGTOs, Oct. 5. —Minister Foster called at the state department this forenoon and spent an hour with the secretary and and assistant secretary of state. The exact nature of his errand cannot be learned from ofiicial sources, but there is reason to believe he has come to Washington to report what the Spanish government is willing to do in I the matter of a purely commercial treaty, and that iie has not made or entertained on the part of this government any proposition for a new reciprocal treaty. It is known that Secretary Bayard thought the recip rocity treaty which failed was a one-sided affair, which proposed among other things to remit £-25,000.000 of revenue annually on sugar alone, without, in his opinion, secur ing any adequate advantage in compensa tion, it being also his belief that the price of the commodity would not be materially reduced in the American markets. On the other hand, he was alive to the annoyances to which merchants and ship owners are subjected by reason of the Cuban system of onerous regulations and excessive taxes and tines, in the absence of any commercial treaty between the United States and Spain. To mitigate these annoyances, lessen the burdens upon shipping, and generally to reduce the friction of our Cuban trade were the purposes with which he reopened nego tiations through Mr. Foster at Madrid. Temperance Becoming 1 an Issue. Special to the Olobfl. Washington, Oct. s.—The fight of the temperance people in Ohio is being watched with a good deal of interest here. There are many observers of political life who be lieve that the temperance issue is to be a most important one before the people of this country at a very early day. Southern men coining here seem to be impressed with this belief; they say it is quite astonishing to see the strength which local option and prohibition have in the South. This seems to be the ease in nearly all the Southern states. A Southern gentleman who has watched the growth of this sentiment North and South, said to your correspondent recently that he believed it would be the basis of a very im portant political party at a very near date. It will, he believes, gain the support of the best and most intelligent class of people in ail parts of the country. He says that the temperance ad vocates in the South are to be found mostly in the Democratic party, where most of the intelligence is, but that in the North,where the majority of the intelligence is in the Republican party, the large proportion of the temperance people are Republicans. Judce Flcniinsr Exonerated. Louisville, Ky., Oct. 5. —The repeated publication of Judge W. B. Fleming's name with that of a person appointed to a judge ship who was pronounced unfit for the place by one of his indorsees, and thejsevere letters denouncing such a course imputed to the president caused a number of Mr. Flem ing's friends to take steps in the matter, and has brought forth the following auto graph letter from the president, which was received to-day by a friend of Judge Flem ing: Executive Mansion. Washington, D. C, Oct. 2, 1885.—T0 Henry J. Tilford, President Ken tucky Cuttle-raisiug 1 Company, Louisville, Ky., Dear Sir: While Mr. Fleming' was a candidate for the United States district attor neyship I was pleased with tlio manner in which he demeaned himself, and when the place was given to another ho be haved decently, ancl • seemed to think that notwithstanding his dis appointment the country and the Democratic party would survive. When I was prepared to appoint an associate judge in New Mexico I seat for Mr. Fleming- and offered him the place, which he accepted. I have never had uny reason to complain of his indorsements and am very sorry that he could not continue in the office to which he was appointed. The fact is he won his appointment by his own good conduct and upon his merits as they were estimated after a number of personal Interviews i'oi-tiiied by plenty of indorsements by his neighbors and professional brethren, none of which have ever been withdrawn. Yours very truly, GnovEU CliEVEland. in Behalf of Poor Lo. Special to the Globe. Washington, Oct. 5. —John 11. Oberly, superintendent of Indian schools, left the city this afternoon for Lake Mohawk, N. V., where he will meet the board of Indian commissioners and a number of senators and represemtatives and private philanthro phists, who are interested in the civilization of the Indian. lie will be gone a week. This conference, which is an annual affair, is unofficial, and the gentlemen and ladies who attend are guests, at Lake Mohawk. Of Mr. Albert Smiley, a distinguished Quaker and a member of the Indian com mission. Washiufton Waifs., It is said that Secretary Manning has prom ised Mcoweeaey, the noted suspect, an office. It is claimed that there is no serious disa greement between Secretary Endicott and Gen. Sheridan. The Ottoman legation deny that the sultan is becoming- insane, and maintain that his majesty is in the best of health. The secretary of war has directed that all unauthorized persons shall be removed from the Cherokee country west of the Arkansas river. The issue of standard silver dollars from the mints during the week ended Oct. 3 was $0-1,l"0. The issue during the corresponding period of last year was &91,995. The treasury department is receiving an increased demand for small currency, which is regarded by the oliicials of that department as a sign of revival in the business of the country. Richard J. Murphy of Chicago called at the White houso yesterday as an applicant for the registcrship of the Huron, Dak., land office, now held by George Armstrong, Gov. Pierces protege. The commissioner of customs has instructed customs officers to make a return at the close of each quarter of all unclaimed merchandise in public store, bonded warehouse or custom house. Ino such returns appear iv the ac counts of collectors as now rendered. Commissioner Atkins of the Indian bu reau left this city yesterday on a tour of inspection through the various Indian reservations. As the Hoiman investigat ing committee were about to visit some of the Southwestern agencies, the commis eioir" rejoined the committee which left yes terday afternoon for the Indian territory. It has been ascertained that an engrossed bill, authorising the attorney general to begin proceedings looking to the annulment of pat ents obtained through fraud or misrepresen tation, together with all papers relative to the measure, has disappeared from the files of the senate committee on patents. The bill was passed last session by the house of rep resentatives and referred by the senate to the patent committee, but was not brought be fore the senate for flnal action. Stormy Scenes Expected, ~ gg?J Copexhagkx, Oct. s.—The diet opened to-day, and it is probable that the session will be the most stormy that the people of Denmark have ever witnessed. The rela tions of contending parties are strained to the utmost and some violent scenes are an ticipated, as an attempt will be made to force the king to comply with the vote of the diet at the previous session, to dismiss his obnoxious ministers. His majesty, also, will probably be a subject of serious dis cusssion for having levied taxes by royal decree when the diet refused to vote the budget, and saying that he was determined to continue to do so until the representa tives of the people returned to a sense of what he cousiders to be their duty. The people throughout Denmark are greatly ex cited at the arbitrary action of the king. Mayors all over the country ref ussd to levy the illegal tax, and numerous political prosecutions have resulted from the demon strations against the government. Isidore Rosenthal of Chicago sued the Chi cago, Itock Island & Pacific railway for $SO, --000 damages for the loss of a leg. The jury failed to agree, standing 11 to 1 in favor of the plaintilf.

New York and Chicago Play an Exnl bltion Game and. the Latter Is Defeated. Gillisplo of Philadelphia Knocks Out j Sheridan of Chicago in Six Hounds. Races at St. Louis Fair. St. Louis, Mo., Oct. —The St. Louis annual festival week began to-day with the opening of the twenty-fifth fair of the Agri cultural anil Mechanical association. There was a large attendance. The fair excels any preceding one and is especially strong in live stock, horses and cattle being partic ularly line in quality and great in number. Taken in connection with the trotting races given by the association the display of horses is undoubtedly the finest ever brought together on this continent. The program for^the week includes the spectacle of the Veiled Prophets and the industrial parade, both of which will be very elaborate and of unusual splendor. Besides there will be nightly entertainments and beauti ful illuminations, the like of which have never been attempted elsewhere in this country, and the exposition stands unriv alled as a local institution. The trotting race at the fair ground track to-day, al though in the high classes, brought out a number of good goers and attracted much attention. The track was heavy from late rains, but will become hard and fast with good weather.

Montreal's Trouble With Small-Pox Moktbeal, Oct. s.—The civic board of health to-day received permission from the provincial board to take possession of the exhibition building as a small-pox hospital. Complaint has been made at the health oflice that an undertaker in the East end, who has contrae'ed to remove bodies, is in the habit of conceal ing the bodies in certain places until he has a convenient load. Detectives have been set to watch him. A movement is on foot among property holders of the East end to form an organi zation. The object is to refuse houses or stores to persons whose households will not be vaccinated. The mayor will propose, at tiie next meeting of the city council, that a troop of cavalry be kept on duty until all trouble is over, and that a permanent corps of mounted police be appointed. APPROVED BY TEE PAPAL SEE. The Action of tiie Baltimore Plenary Council Sanctioned by the Pope. The Scope of Clerical and Lay Educa tion Enlarged in America. Baltimore, Oct. s.—The American pub lished to-day a special letter from Home, having reference to the continuation and effect of the decrees passed by the plenary council of Baltimore. The writer says that j their influence will be felt throughout America, and to a beneficial purpose. A canon, which took its origin in mediaeval times, and was founded on and constituted for a civilization that has almost passed away, is cut into by the decrees. They will constitute a law suitable for the time, fhe education of the clergy will be elevated to the wants of the time. The Chris tian civilization of the people will be made to keep pace with the material civilization of the time. Christianity will be brought into harmony with the educa tion and civilization of the present age. Regulations have been made for the estab lishment of schools for children, normal schools for teachers, and a university for priests and for ISiose laymen who devote themselves to the pursuits of higher knowl edge. It is not by "benefices," that great feature of the middle ages, by which, while education was assisted, it was also ham pered, that these results are to be obtained. "Benetices" will not be brought in as a means of support. The Catholic church in the United States wants no subsidy from the state, and thus it will not become a servant, or rather a slave, of the state, as it has so often been in European countries, such as France and Austria. THE CHURCH IX AMERICA prefers to depend for her support upon the free offerings of the people. In the new dioceses it is provided that no such thing as parishes and parish priests, in the old canon ical sense of the term, will exist in the United States. These were founded on j ' 'benefices." but there they will not be em ployed. This, however, does not indicate that pastors who have created and fostered a congregation, and made the desert to bloom as a rose, will be harshly treated or removed from the places they have built up. There will not be an absolute removability of pastors. A certain percentage of them will be declared immovable, and this holds good except in cases where faults are as cribed to the pastor, and these faults and their consequences will be determined by a trial. A certain amount of liberty of action is required in the United States both by bishops and clergy, and it is not advisable to remove or curtail that liberty. The dig nity and authority will be increased and brought more prominently into relief. They will have their courts over those of bishops, in which appeals will be received before such appeals can be sent to Home. In fu ture bishops will have a # PERMANENT BOARD OR COVXCIT,, which they will assemble at certain inter vals during the year. They will also give some voice to the clergy in the selection of bishop. Another important decision of the Baltimore council refers to societies or as sociations. A stop is about to be put to indiscriminate, injudicious, or conflicting condemnation of secret societies. Hence forward the condemnation of any secret society will be reserved to a permanent board of all the archbishops of the country, and all cases of such a nature must be re ferred to them for their judgment and de cision. The greatest safeguard will be thrown around the contraction of church debts in future. The sanctity of Christian marriages will be specially guarded by suit able and effective regulation. Much was said on the holding of ecclesi astical property, but as different laws exist in different dioceses, it was left to each bishop to adopt the means best suited to each particular case. These decrees will form the basis of the councils about to be held in Australia and Ireland. Following: I pi he Confession. Philadelphia, Oct. 5. —Since the de tails of the strange confession by John 11. Wilson in Chicago yesterday have been published, a clue has been found which may lead to the clearing up of the mystery. This afternoon a constable came into the city from Jenkintown, Pa., and stated that for several years Anthony Daly resided on a farm in Montgomery county, near Ivy Hill cemetery. The farm belonged to his mother's estate and he worked it on shares. In January of ISS4 Daly gave employment to a man who went by the name of ''Sailor Jack" and the men were constantly in each other's company. About the middle of the following month Daly's wife was taken ill and she was re moved to her mother's residence in the vi cinity, and during her absence Daly mys teriously disappeared and was never seen afterwards. A few days after this "Sailor Jack" sold two horses and a cow from the farm, giving as a reason for his action that he had met Daly in Philadelphia and had been directed to do so. This was followed a few days later by the destruction of the farm house by fire and the disappearance of "Sailor Jack." Chief of Police Kelly this afternoon forwarded a dispatch to Police Superintendent Doyle of Chicago, directing him to hold the prisoner, and the officials of Montgomery county would communicate with him. District Attorney Beckel of Montgomery county will send an officer to bring the prisoner on for trial. Very IHuch Exaggerated. Ottawa, Ont.. Oct. s.—Mr. A. P. Law of the Zoological museum has returned from Lake Miotassini, where he completed the survey of that sheet of water.

J., Oct. 5.—A fire broke out to-night in Taylor's machine shops aud soon communicated to A. N. HaddePs cooperage warehouse, Goky's dry dock and Johns & Whitmore's dry dock.

The Guards Open Tire With Repeating Eifles and Twenty Are Killed or Wounded. A Pocket Camera Does Effective "Work in New York Ferreting Out Crime In Saloons. Evidence Brought Out That the Chi nese in Rock Springs, Wyo., Fired Their Own Houses. Mowed Them Down. Rusk, Tex., Oct. s.—Yesterday, at the terminus of the Kansas & Gulf Shore line, near Lufkin, Tex., sixty convicts working on the road made a desperate break for liberty, just as they had finished supper. With deafening yells they started up in a body and rushed for the neighboring woods. Ihe guards opened fire on the fleeing con victs with deadly effect. The latest report says tnat twenty were killed or wounded. They ran in one large body, and the guards simply emptied repeating rifles and small arms into the moving mass. Humors of an intended outbreak in this locality have been rife for some weeks. The rumors were strengthened by the fact that many of the convicts were serving life sentences and are known to be desperate characters and extra precautions were being taken. Every means possible is being used to recapture the forty who succeeded :in eluding the rifles of the guards, all avenues of escape being guarded and posses are being organ ized to scour the country. The scene of tne outbreak is some miles from a tele graph office. The Rock Springs Riots. Green River, Wyo., Oct. s.—Some testimony of a startling character was given to the grand jury to-day, calculated to throw new light on the transactions at Rock Springs during the recent riot there. Rev. Timothy Thirlow, Congregational minister, who resided at Rock Springs with his fam ily during the riot, made a sworn statement, as follows: "I am a minister of the gospel and was residing at Rock Springs on the 2d of September last, on which day the riot occurred, and was in the vicinity of China town. On that day 1 heard there was a large number of men moving around toward the north end of Chinatown,! with guns, clubs and other weapons. I stepped out of the house with my rifle and saw the first two houses that were set on fire. While we were standing there I could see a num ber of white men at the north side of China town, and at the same time four Chinamen came out of a house in the southeast part of town, only a short distance from us. They were some two hundred yards from the white men. The four Chinamen had not moved more than twenty yards from the house with their bundles, when some one called them back, and they remained in the house two or three minutes before coining out again. In the meantime a volley was heard on the north side of Chinatown and almost instantly the Chinamen rushed out of the building. They had hardly left when we saw the building was on ffre. No white men were to be seen near the house, and it was apparent that the house was fired by THE CHIXAMEN THEMSELVES. "My daughter, who talked with some of the Chinamen afterwards, can tell you more about that and the object of the Chinamen in setting fire to their own houses. The two houses that were first burned belonged to the railroad company and were known as Nos. 15 and 16. Among the Chinamen that came out of No. 16, the first house set on fire,l recognized Ah Quong." The state ment of Miss Eleanor Thirlow was as follows: "I came to Rock Springs last December and have given instructions to the Chinese at my father's house in the evening. I think we had the confidence of the Chinese, who regarded us as their friends. Just as soon as they returned some of them come to see us and told us about their troubles. Ah Quong, who lived in the cellar of Gang House No. 10. which was the first house set on fire, told me that 'China boy was scared, raid American boy would get things, so China boy set fire to the housee.' " Lew Ack Sen, a nephew of Ah Say. the Chinese interpreter, also told the same facts about the setting fire to houses of other Chinamen, that they were afraid the white men would find their money and for that reason the Chinese set fire to the house. AhQuong said: "China boy no likee American boy. - Catch him things and China boy set fire to houses." Mrs. Eleanor Thirlow testified substantially as her husband, and also that the Chinamen were seen running from the houses, which im mediately burst forth in flames, as if touched off with gunpowder. A Camera. An Officer of the Law. Special to the Globe. New York, Oct. s.—Curious evidence has been obtained by a member of the Prop erty Owners' association, now engaged in an attempt to clean vice out of the mercan tile portion of Sixth avenue. Warned by previous experience that the policeman will testify when the cases under preparation are brought up in court that the assailed es tablishments are not wicked and that the excise laws are not broken in them, this earnest investigator has used a camera to some purpose. The rotten neighborhood is brilliantly lighted at night by electricity; the city street lamps there are electrical, and these are reinforced by those hung in front of the saloons. The interiors of the dance houses, concert gardens and variety shows, too, are glaringly Illuminated. Armed with a pocket camera for taking in stantaneous views, he has made over a hun dred negatives, the prints from which show the character of the nuisances beyond the possibility of contradiction. In every case THE CAMERA WAS USED after 1 o'clock in the evening, when the sale of intoxicants is supposed to have stopped. The street scenes, showing throngs , of men and girls en tering and emerging from .the door ways, -were obtained without difficulty, for only a second's exposure of the lens, like the flash of a dark-lantern, was required in each case. Sixty of these were made with» out attracting any attention. Then he un dertook the more delicate job of interior photography. He got eighteen covert sheets from galleries and private boxes of the Hay market, Sans Souci, Koster & Beals, Pros pect, Alhambra. and Coffees, all in the re gion of retail districts. Shopping is injur : iously affected by their presence. At this stage he was caught at it, but he declared that he was at work for the Police Gazette, which was going to publish laudatory ac counts of the resorts, and thus, in the guise of "a special artist on the spot;" he victor iously completed the work. It is expected that juries will believe the pictures against the word of the police. Frightful Suicide. Verona, N. V., Oct. Co.—Last Satur day Miss Emma Faulkner of State Bridge poured the contents of a lamp over her head and shoulders and then set fire to her self and ran shrieking around the house. The fire was not extinguished until nearly • all her clothing had been burned from her body. She died at 3 o'clock Sunday afterr i»oon. She had attempted suicide before. Victims of the Pittsburgh Disaster. Pittsbcrg, Oct. s.—Jacob Bender and Coroley Stein, injured in Friday's boiler explosion, died last night, making four deaths so tar, Henderson, Hey ward and Lavender are still very low, with little pros- • pects of the two latter recovering.
