quarters In this oily is ready for occupancy,
and there is nothing in tiie way of removal.
Gen. DBUM s.:.s >t is likely there will be a

rational that the department Should delay

only means six months more of inconveni
ence to the business of the department

tiie convenience of the oflieers who

it would doubtless be more benelicial to
them to make the change at this

In an article approving President Cleve
land's determination to exclude himself
from the oflice-seekers after the 1st of No
vember, the New York Times says: ;'Think
of Bismarck or Gladstone doing the
miserable work that Mr. Cleveland
has done for eight months, and at the
same time governing an empire." While
Mr. Cleveland may be justified in setting
apart a portion of his time to the considera
ion of questions of governmental policy ant
of preparing the recommendations he is ex
pected to make to congress in his forthcom
ing message,still the Times should remember
that there is no sort of comparison between
the position occupied by the chief magis
rate of this nation and the positions held
by Bismarck and Gladstone. While
the latter are engaged in the work of govern
ing empires, MhClkvelanivs duties are of
au entirely different character. In this
country the people do the governing, and the
president's duty is to carry into execution
the will of his sovereign. Under these
conditions there is no impropriety in the
sovereign occasionally conferring with
his prime minister in regard to gov
ernmental matters. The White house
is the property of the people of the
United States and the president is their
tenant, under a four years' lease they have
given him. There ought to be no objection
to the proprietor making a call now and
then upon his tenant and making sugges
tions as to how the property should be
handled. The people are patient and char
itable, and are willing that the president
shall have all the time he requires tor the
consideration of his own affairs. But to sav
that they shall not have the privilege to con
fer with him at such times as they see proper
is straining our democratic institutions a
little too far.
It is unfortunate for Gen. Grant's memory
that those who ought to have been his
friends are proving themselves to have
been his worst enemies. Scarcely had he
been laid to rest at Riverside until Mr. De
pew opened up the Grant-Johnson con
troversy, which to say the least of it has
reflected no credit upon tiie reputation of
Gen. Grant. Now his friends, or pre
tended friends, parade before the pub
lic the statement that during the ex
citement which prevailed over the II a ye s-
Tii/den contest for the preside ncy, when
asked what he would do in case Air. Til
den attempted to set up a clain
to the office to which he hac
been elected, Gen. Grant laconically re
plied, "I will hang him." If Gen. Grant
did make such a remark, it only shows thai
he did not possess the good sense generallj
accredited to him. In the first place Gen.
Grant had no authority under the laws or
the constitution to hang anybody. Al
though he had acquired eminent distinction
as the commander of the American armies
and although he had been honored by his
countrymen with the chief magistracy of
the nation, still he was only an American
citizen pledged to a faithful observance of
the laws of his country, and in
vested with no more power over the
lives and fortunes of his fellow
countrymen than the humblest hod-carrier
in the land. If Gen. Grant had hung Mr.
Tildkn, or anybody else, he wonld have
been a murderer. That is all there is of
that. In the next place, if he had been in
vested with the powers of absolute dictator
ship there would have been no justice in
cruelly exercising his power by executing a
man for laying claim to that which he be
lieved he was entitled to possess and which
four-lifths of the people of the country
knew honestly belonged to him. There is
no question in tho mind of any
reasonable man in the United States
to-day about the justice of Mr.
Tilden's claim to the presidency.
He was as fairly and honestly elected presi
dent as any individual who ever occupied
the presidential chair. And there was no
man in the country who was more fully
convinced of that] fact than Gen. Grant.
But Mr. Tilden never contemplated as
serting a claim to the presidental office ex
cept by lawful methods. When he and his
party friends assented to the electoral com
mission compromise that ended the dispute.
There was no occasion for Gen. Grant as
suming that Mr. Tilden proposed to se
cure the office by violence. Taking all
these facts into consideration no sen
sible man. if he was in sober
mind, would have made the
remark which has been attributed to Gen.
Ghaut. As Gen. Grant hadthecredit of
being possessed with an abundance of good,
hard horse sense, we are safe in assuming
that the story is a base slander, and is a
dirty attempt to besmirch the reputation of
the great soldier whoso memory is revered
by iiis countrymen. It begins to look as if
the best monument that this country could
erect to Gen. Grant's memory would be to
kill off a score or more of his so-called per
sonal friends, and thus save his reputation
from the calumny they arc heaping upon it.
Now that an inflential religious denomi
nation by formal action has given counte
nance to the theory of evolution, the next
step will be to determine whether we are
evoluting upward or downward. It is a
very interesting' question to the human
race to know whether we commenced as
seraphim and have descended the scale, or
whether we began as microbes and have de
veloped upward. The Darwinian idea
places our origin as far down as the monkey,
and by gradual processes we have lost I
the caudal appendages and other character •
istics of the ape species. It has often been |
a matter of conjecture even among
scientists of the Darwin school why
the evolution process didn't bring us all up
together. That is why some of us were se
lected for development and others still per
mitted to remain in monkey form. But the
scientific circle at Cornell university is pre
paring to reverse the Darwin belief and to
align itself with Rev. Sam Jones, who
says he believes in evolution backwards. A
very rare specimen of the manatee, or sea
cow, has been shipped from South America
to Cornell for dissection, with a
view to demonstrate the bearing of
its structure upon retrograde metamorphosis.
Prof. Wilder says that the manatee
evidently belongs to a family that has seen
bettor days. He furthermore says: "I pre- t
dict that not many years hence there will
be found more and more conclusive evi
dence that the forms from which the mana
tee and its relatives have been descended
had arms and legs and a very much smaller
tail. The hind legs have been lost in the
process of evolution, the front legs have
been degraded into fins and the tail has be
come one for swimming instead of one
flapping from side to side." Thus it is that
science is wrangling over the scale of evolu
tion, whether it is ascending or descending.
And the church synods are backing up the
contending factions. In the meantime,
while the dispute is bains settled, we poor
ignorant laymen are going to stick to th« old
faith that our fathers and mothers went to
heaven in, that man was made from the dust
of the earth and an eternal God breathed
the breath of an everlasting life into his
noscrils, and that our Eves —dear creatures
that they —God bless them—are still
bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh,
THE CLEVELAND SMILE.
People who visit the White house, it is
said, always come away with a pleasant im
pression of the president's suavity of man
ner. That which most impresses the vis
itor who calls merely to shake hands with
his excellency is the smile which plays
upon his face. It speaks more emphatically
than words can say it, "I am glad to see
you." It is described by a Washington cor
respondent as a perfectly unaffected smile,
as different as possible from the forced grin
of an. ordinary politician seeking popularity;
it a smile which proceeds from genuine
good nature, and is the natural expression
of one who feels kindly toward all
the world, and believes that the world gen
erally means well by himself. A lady who
was present at a hand-shaking with the
president in the East ro om saw a striking
resemblance between the president and the
statuette of the Laughing Baby. In
speaking of it she says "the baby seems
smiling just out of pure good nature, be
cause it is comfortable itself and feels kindly
toward every one, and the president's smile
always reminds me of that statuette, he
looks so good-natured and has such a fat
"It seems to me," said another, "the
smile President Cleveland's face wears
when he is assuring those who call on him
merely to pay their respects that he is 'glad
to see them,' is one of the most light
hearted looking smiles I ever saw on the
face of a man of mature years who had a

his Ohio speeches we picture him in imagi- I
nation as a mail-clad warrior, his hands
reeking in the blood of slain rebels, and his
valiant sword carrying death and destruc

its sweet, honest words of adulation for the

Scalper* Fight tlie Companies.
Buffalo, Oct. 30.—The light between
the ticket scalpers and tho agents of the
east-bound lines is worse than it has been
any time this week. At a meeting of the
Brokers'association yesterday the firm of
Samuel T. Fisk withdrew and joined A.
M. Barnum, who is leading the brokers'
fight. The New York Central still main
tains a 56.50 rate to New York, but the
West Shore, Erie & Lackawanna are selling
at S4, while Fisk &. Barnum cut the rate to
53.50. It is expected that tho lines will
make a rate of $3, when the scalpers prom
ise to go to 53.50 and keep 50 cents under,
no matter where the rate goes. It is
thought that when the West Shore, Erie &
Lackawanna goes to S3 the New York
Central will come into the tight and that a
general rate war will be begun, which will
only cease when the scalpers are given the
recognition they ask. The lines are paying
commissions to all the scalpers save Fisk &,
Barnum, and the scalpers in turn are hold
ing up the rates made by regular line
Central lowa Circular.
Yesterday a circular issued by the Cen
tral lowa Railroad company was received in
StPaul stating that "a ninety-nine-year con
tract has been made with the Minnesota &

Dec. 1. To complete the connection, the
circular states, "this company is extending
its lines from Manly Junction to Lyle.?' A
request is made to general passenger agents
to make out new forms of tickets to read
via the Central lowa from junction points
to Lyle and from there to destination.
When these new forms of tickets are placed

A Speculative Property.
According to the Philadelphia Record,
there seems to be iittle doubt that every
effort is being used to keep the Northern
Pacific stocks at the lowest possible quota
tions until to-day, when expires the calling
privilege that was given to those who
loaned the Oregon Transcontinental com
pany money upon its collateral notes. By
the terms of these notes there are about
40,000 shares of Northern Pacific preferred
stock that can be called at 50. and about the
same number of shares of the common
stock that can be called at 25. The Trans
continental company does not wish to lose
the stock, because it would then lose its in
fluence in the control of the Northern Pa
cific company, and therefore an endeavor is
made to keep tho securities below the call
ing figure. The bull clique would prefer to
buy the shares called at the lowest possible
price, and will not therefore bid them up
until after to-day, when it will be definitely
known how many shares have been called.
The ideas mentioned above have tended
to hold down the price of both common and
preferred shares. The following offi
cial statement of the Northern Pacific rail
road for September was privately circulated:
'■ 1885. 1884. Decrease.
ings $1,224,955 $1,238,560 $11,605
penses 532,596 666,707 133,811

Taxes 20,966 *
Net $665,093 . $569,853 $95,240
♦Included in operating expenses.
This statement was a surprise. It
showed such an enormous reduction in oper
ating expenses that many friends of the
company commenced to buy the preferred'
shares, on the theory that they have a very
promising future. It remains to be seen
what view of the subject may be taken by
the public to-day, but it is certainly the
most favorable exhibit that the company has
made for a long time. It was rumored
that the bull clique in this stock will make
a startling demonstration during next week.
Gereral Passenger Agent Fee of the
Northern Pacific returned from the South

the pool for the past six months on emi

states that he has not received notice yet
whether the passenger agents will meet at
Monterey, Cal., on Nov. 25, but he thinks
the meeting of the Transcontinental road,
called for that date, will be a general one of
managers, general freight aud passenger
Should the passenger agents meet on that
date the matter of emigrant rates will be
discussed, and possibly some action taken.
The question was brought up at the St. Paul
meeting, but as other affairs of more im
portance necessitated attention, the matter
of the illegitimate use of the emigrant rates
from New York to the Pacific coast was
held over. ___ ■

Superintendent Graham of the Dakota
division of the Northern Pacific road was

to operating the road all:winter. This
branch, on account of its location, is a very
hard one in the winter to keep open, anil
causes much annoyance to the superintend
ent and the section masters, but heretofore
it has had no protection, and with the snow
fence it is thought less difficulty will be ex
perienced this winter in keeping it clear.

A 3VEWFORM OF GAMBLING.;;
Heads and. Tails Made Necessary by
the War on Gambling 1 in Chicago.
'The beer goes?"
"Right you are. Zwei!"
"Make it brandy and ginger ale this
time." This the first speaker.
"As you prefer."
"A tail would take it," remarks the
gentleman with the dark mustache and
goatee, who introduced the game.
"This time let's make it a dollar a call?"
excitedly ejaculated the young man who
had come in on the excursion and had met
the goatee by chance,
'•Make it aV. and we'll quit," and the
goatee wiggled in an insinuating way.
"That's only what I expect our marriage
license to cost. Mary and I gave the old
folks the slip last night."
"I have scruples against gambling." said
the party in black, but I'll illustrate to you
the folly of betting."
And so forth. The young man from the
country— the city, for that matter
leaves without a cent, through the gentle
manly wiles and shrewdly drawn schemes
of the professional player—the man "who
always awaits the call, or has a double
head or two tails beneath his hand.
This matter of "matching" money, since
the suppression of open gambling, has be
come a pernicious fact —a phenomenal rage.
Heretofore John T. Raymond and a few
of his ilk have been accredited with a
monopoly of "heads-and tails" (but with
what truth is not positively apparent).
The vice now pervades the best society,
and is by no means confined to those who
wager whisky on the turn of a penny. The
ladies, too, have picked up the passion,
and many who exchanged tolu and bet bon
bons on the head or tail now resort to theft
to swe 11 the amount involved on the flip of a
copper. The old gentleman's wallet is
"touched" during the night, and a Dear

But the North side does not monopolize
this species of society gambling. Michigan
and Prairie avenues are equally prominent.
Matching is everywhere, while pitching
pennies at the base-board on the parlor
carpet is as common as black stockings.
I has been said that this polite mode of
gambling was spread by members of the
board of trade. This is hardly true. The
estimable gentlemen composing that body
of bone-fide business people have enough
to answer for without this last immorality
being dropped at their doors like a founding*

A New Yorker Tells of Ills First Days
in the Wild West.
Dead Broke on a Poker Game and
Saved by a Christmas Dinner.
BY RAT,PH MARTIN.
"Two years .ago last Christmas," said
young M to me a few days since, "I
first learned what the feeling of destitution
meant, and although my experience was
not of many hours' duration, it was keen
enough while it lasted to do me for the bal
ance of my life. I had come out West here
from New York, fresh from home and ab
solutely inexperienced as far as providing
for myself was concerned, undisciplined in
the care of money or clothes, always hav
ing been liberally supplied with both on
demand from my father, and knowing nor
caring nothing about having to work to
earn them. When I arrived in St. Paul 1
had a fund of money sufficient to have
lasted me, with very little economy, for two
or three years. What by loaning, giving
away and making the acquaintance of the
elephant, in two months or thereabout 1
was 'busted.' and immediately sent home
for a fresh supply when 1 found that my
last cent was gone.
"By return of mail I received a check for
$50 inclosed in a letter that included about
ten pages of remarks on idiocy and extrav
agance, and wound up by telling me that I
was old enough to begin to make my own
living, and, moreover, would iiave to do so
in the future, as I was to receive no more
money that I did not earn.
AFTER REFLECTING OX THIS NEWS,
with what degree of joy you may imagine,
I decided to set about finding some work.
I was not long in finding a place with an
engineering party on one of the railroads,
in which profession I had received some ed
ucation incidentally with a general colle
giate course, and went up to run lines
through the pine woods in the country north
of here. Along in December it grew so cold
and there was so much snow on the ground I
that the work had to be discontinued and i
was ordered in to the general offices for the
balance of the winter. When we broke the
camp I had about SIOO in my pocket, not
having had much chance to "blow in"' any
money away out there in the wilderness,
and 1 looked forward with a great deal of
pleasure to a surprise for my palate, after a
three-months' association with salt pork, in
the best dinner that money could obtain in
"I took a train about 5 o'clock in the aft
ernoon of one of the coldest Christmas
eves that I have ever known, and sitting
down in a corner of the smoking car, not
far from the stove, and in the same seat
with a bundle of rags inclosins a Chippewa
Indian, I settled down to make the best of
a long and tiresome ride. Along about 9
o'clock I had to get up and leave the car.
All of the windows, the doors and ventila
tors were closed to keep the cold out, and
the mixed smoke from all kinds of pipes
and cigars was so thick that it was impossi
ble to see more than one-half the length o
the car. This, combined with the insinu
ating flavor of the half dozen Indians who
sat huddled up in my corner of the car. was
more than I could stand. Passing through
the crowded cars in the vain search for a
seat, I came at last to the Pullman and was
lucky enough to find an unoccupied berth.
Going into the smoking apartment to take a
final smoke while my berth was being made
up, I was very agreeably surprised to find i
there a couple of young men whom I had 1
met in Minneapolis before I had run across
my last dollar. They and another were en
gaged in a quiet game of draw, and receiv
ihg a cordial invitation, I took a hand in it.
WE PLAYED ALL NIGHT LONG,
and by 5 o'clock in the morning I had
more than doubled my stakes. However,
before we arrived in St. Paul 1 paid out my
last cent for the privilege of looking at four
kings and an ace that one of my opponents
held against a "'queen full" in my own
hand, and I left the train in the Union
depot with an empty pocket, an emoty
stomach, a troubled conscience and no place
in the city to go to for a meal or to lie down
and sleep. This was the first Christmas
that I had ever spent away from home, and
the recollections of the warm fire-place and
warmer greeting that used to meet me as 1
went down stairs on that morning, and was
treated at the door of the dining-room with
a kiss from a loving mother, who would
lead me in to where a kind father would
shake hands with me and endeavor to make
a surprise of presents that mv mother had
told me about days in advance, kept pre
senting themselves to me until I became
"I went down to the office of the rail
road that employed me, hoping to find
some one there from whom 1 could obtain an j
advance, but found it deserted, all of the
clerks and oilicers being away making the
most of the holiday. 1 sat down there
thoroughly disheartened and feeling quite
weak after my sleepless night and long fast, |
and wrote a letter home, telling the folks
that by the time that letter reached them I
would probably be dead from starvation.
While looking in my pocketbook for a post
age stamp 1 found a ticket to Minneapolis
that I had carried there for three or four
months. At that time the only people with
whom I was at all intimate in the West I
lived in Minneapolis, and I hastened to
catch the first train, knowing that if I were
in time 1 would probably be invited to
a Christmas dinner, and would certainly be
able to raise some money. When I got

oysters, soups and all sorts of cakes and |
confections, fruits, nuts and wines. I ate
there until I was uncomfortable and drank
until everybody else was, and, under the
influence of a heavy stomach and light
spirits, I told my story to the assembled
company, surprising them all very much by
saying that I hadn't eaten before in over
four days and from present indications
wouldn't be a >le to eat again for about a
week. I have a hazy recollection of hear
ing a burst of uproarious laughter and of
discovering that it was due to an attempt of
mine to drink somebody's healtb in a pot of
THE NEXT MOKXIXfi
when I awoke and tried to squint through
a pair of eyelids, that, like the head, of
which they were a part, were very much
swollen, I was surprised to find myself
asleep in a nice, warm bed with snowy
sheets and pillow cases, in a little, south
fronting room in which the sun was shining
through a couple of windows, and which
was heated by a grate in which a bright
fire was burning. ,
One of the boys told me afterwards that
I fell asleep right after my last exploit,
and that he and a couple more of young
men had to carry me up stairs and put me
to bed, and that I slept like a log for over
fifteen hours without ever turning.
As soon as I was dressed I went down
stairs and attempted to apologize to my
hostess for my unbecoming behavior at her
table, but she wouldn't allow me to do so,
and told me that the causes, as she had
heard them, were a sufficient excuse for
the effect as she had witnessed it.

told me I could have all the money I
wanted, 1 returned to St. Paul, where I I

Harvard Students Guilty of an Amus

Racing at Newmarket and Brighton
Special to the Globe.
Bostox, Oct. 30.—A party of Harvard
students played the best practical joke of
tke season to-day. Several undergraduates
were recently discussing pedestrianism
when one of them, C. H. Tyler of '80, of
fered to bet that he could walk from Cam
bridge to Worcester, forty-four miles,
in twenty-four hours. A $50 wager
was quickly made and to-day was
named for the test. Tyler i 3
very fat, weighing rather more than two
hundred pounds, but he has excellent stay
ing powers. The start was fixed at 4
o'clock in the morning, and the entire party
satiip all night, so as not to be late. The
others promised to make it lively for Tyler
along the route and to accompany him in a
carriage. Tyler thought he had a walk
over in a double sense, for he
was very sure he could cover this
distance in half the time specified. His
friends knew it, too, but they didn't mean
to lose the wager. They quietly had printed
a lot of great posters and stowed them
away in the bottom of the carriage Tyler
started out in high spirits. He and his
tilends cracked jokes along the road for two
or three hours and then the students in the
carnage drove on ahead. Entering the
next town they put up several posters in
prominent places. They read-

And they received him everywhere. His
friends suggested all sorts of honors with
which to greet him. In the larger towns
the crowds surrounded him and hindered his
progress. The continued ovation at first
flattered his vanity, but he began to lose
courage. But he determined not to be
driven off the field. He kept on until the
heavy storm began, when he was ten or fif
teen miles from his destination. At last
accounts he was still plodding along through
the rain, with a chance of winning his

four strokes, taking him twenty-five yards.
Gaudauer started well and gained slowly to
the turn, which they made almost together.
They kept abreast for nearly two miles on
