President Cleveland is entitled to the appellation of the veto president. His record as the vetoer of bills is unsurpassed, although lie has only completed a little more than fifteen months of his term. It has been urged that the veto power reposed In the president is a dangerous feature in our organic law, as it places too much power in the hands of one man, which if used ar bitrarily could be exercised to the detriment of the public interests. • It is true that con gress has the right by a two-thirds vote to pass a bill over the president's veto and that this fact to a certain extent answers the objection to the veto power. At the came time there are Instances, such as the rush of business immediately pre ceding the adjournment of congress, when it would be next to impossible to get a vote on a vetoed bill, and thus the president would be master of the situa tion. However objectionable the veto feature may be, it cannot be urged against President Cleveland that he has abused this power, notwithstanding the frequency •with which he has been called upon to use it. The people are with him in this mat ter. The public treasury has been tapped so often, and so nearly ex hausted by the multiplicity of private bills which have squeezed through congress by one crook or another that the country is gratified to see a check placed on this ex travagant system of legislation. As long as the president continues to exercise the same judicious discrimination that he has shown tip to this time he can keep right along with the veto racket. Twenty-nine vetoes in one day is a good record, but if it takes 229 per day to check congressional extravagauce Y e hope the president will pile them in. A TIMELY REBUKE. The grand jury of Hennepin county saw fit to give the Minneapolis daily newspa pers a very appropriate lecture for their reprehensible conduct in publishing testi mony relating to matters which were the subject of secret investigation by that body. The Minneapolis newspapers were probably led into this indiscreet action by their parti san zeal and the hope of trump ing up a case against the Demo cratic administration of that city, As is well understood in newspaper circles, there are limits to legitimate journalism, and the publication of secrets which belong to a grand jury is not considered in the line of journalistic enterprise. A newspaper, like an individual, should hold the public interest of paramount importance to individual interests or private con siderations. We are sorry that our Minneapolis contemporaries were so blinded by their partisan zeal as to grossly violate all the rules and established customs of journalism, and while we commiserate their misguided judgment, still we feel that they richly deserved the severe rebuke which the Hennepin county gland jury grave them. Our advice to them is to go and sin no more. CALL. TO THE UNCONVERTED. The Dakota editors were sorely disap pointed in not having an opportunity to shake hands with the two noted evangelists last evening. The protracted services at the camp ground delayed Brothers Jones. and Small until it was too late to meet the Dakota brethren. Brother Jones was equally disappointed, but ho desires the Globe to say that if the Dakota editors •will put in an appearance at the camp ground this morning, at 10:30 o'clock ho will give them talk. The Globe takes a special interest in our visiting Dakota brethren, and it is of the opinion that a right down good lamming from Brother Jones will improve their spiritual condi tion. If Dakota can't get into the Union it Is some comfort to know that there is a chance for a Dakota editor to get into heaven. They are worth praying for. SELFISH CHRISTIANS. Brother Jones took a whack yesterday at the pharasaical doctors of divinity who Bet themselves up as shining guide-boards to the New Jerusalem, and then don't care a continental whether the traveler goes that way or some other way. Mr. Jones' rebuke need not to have been confined to that class of preachers who have, handles to their names. There are thousands of just such so-called Christians in all departments of church work. They look upon their religion just as they do upon their bank accounts. As long as they think the investment is safe and pays a good dividend they put themselves to no trouble to get others to invest in the same securities. This is a mighty selfish world any way you turn it over. •mE DETROIT LYNCHING. It is the. sense of public opinion that an act of justice was meted out to a dangerous ruffian when John Kelliiiek was hung by a mob at the town of Detroit, in this state, night before last, yet there is a feeling of revulsion tlffit justice had to be administered in that way. It is expecting too much of human nature that a community, however orderly or law-abiding it may be, shall sub mit to the ruffianly conduct of every desper ado who inflicts his presence upon the com munity. Society owes it to itself to get rid of such tough characters as Kelliheh seems to have been in the quickest way possible, so long as the manner of his taking off dees not bring a reproach upon the com munity of more serious consequence than the presence of the villain in their midst. There is no shadow of doubt that the ' en raged citizens of Detroit had sufficient provocation to excuse them for the lynch ing, if it did not justify them in the act. It was past all human endurance to have a defiant desperado walk the . streets of a respectable town and shoot down its citizens in cold blood. Nobody is ■ "■irbrised that he was taky» from jail by a mob and swung to the nearest tree. It would* have been a surprise if it had not been so. And yet, now that it is all over and the passion of the lately infuriated populace has cooled off, it is easy enough to see that it would have been hotter if the lynching had not occurred. In one sense it is a stain upon the great state of Minnesota that such lawlessness should prevail within her borders. Mob violence is always to.be deprecated. At this distance from the scene of the occurrence it is easy enough for us to moralize on it, and to deprecate it. but we must re member in extenuation of those who were parties to the lynching that when under the impulse of hot blood a man is not the moralizing philosopher that he is in his calmer moments. The Globe, in common with all good citizens of the state of Minne sota, regrets the Detroit occurrence, but it does not take any stock in that mawkish j sentimentality which insists that it will in flict an irreparable injury upon the reputa tion of the state. With the many deplor j able incidents connected with the tragedy it will result in teaching at least one healthy moral lesson. It will teach all tough characters of the Kklliher stripe to steer clear of Minnesota territory. To be rid of such a gang is not going to hurt any community. MAKES HIS RECORD. Senator Edmunds has at last made his record for the presidential race. He goes before the country as the special champion of corporations. His action in securing a reconsideration of the Beck anti-fee bill in the senate, and its reference to the commit tee of which he is chairman in order that he may throttle it, is equivalent to making up a platform on which he will stand. He has made his bed and will have to lie. It is rather singular to find Mr. Edmunds in this role. Two years ago he stood aside holding his nose because of Mr. Elaine's odorous record in reference to corporations, and refused to lend a helping hand to the Republican party because of its tainted candidate. Now Mr. Edmunds' chief ambition seems to be to wear Blaise's mantle as the champion of corporations. Along with Evabts and Hoar and the rest of the Republican senators he is making a sublime moral ex hibition of himself as the attorney of cor porations in the senate of the United States. Mr. Edmunds expects to win the Republican nomination for the presidency with this record. It is possible that he may do.it, but that doesn't elect him. The people are well informed concerning the merits of Beck's bill, and they are watching the sen ate carefully and are forming correct con clusions about the positions of senators who are retarding this piece of honest and necessary legislation. HE WONT BUY. Being a little vexed at the unaccommo dating spirit manifested by the Milwaukee road toward the Red Rock Camp Meeting association, Sam Jones said last night that he was as independent as the corporations, because he was the son of a King who was able to buy the Milwaukee line and not miss the change from his pocket. At the same time it is safe to bet that Sam Jones' royal parent is not going to do anything of the sort. The Lord is not investing in Mil waukee stock at this time. Besides, the Milwaukee line is under the control of a Chicago management, and there are no dealings between the Lord and Chicago. The fifty surviving soldiers of the First volunteer regiment have been holding a re union at Winoua. The veterans represent the first regiment offered to the Federal gov ernment after the call for troops by Presi dent Lincoln at the outset of the civil war. At the time of the call Gov. Ramsey' hap pened to be in Washington. A few telegraph messages between the governor aud the mem bers of the militia and the proffer was made, thus giving Minnesota the honor of having first offered a regiment of soldiers to .the Federal authorities. Of the thousand who marched out of the state, but fifty odd live to recall old times'. Congressman Ghosvenor of Ohio, at a re cent banquet, announced that there was more intense feeling in the Buckeye state against the New England states than there was against the South. He assigns as a reason for the feeling that New England did not want the West and South to improve and desired to hold these two sections back by adverse leg islation, or, rather, refusing such legislation as was for the benefit of the West and South. It is not known whether the sentiment was expressed, but it is highly probable that the banquet was not a cold-water affair. It is doubtful if Senator Beck's bill, pro hibiting senators from acting as the attorneys for railroad companies, will ever become ■ a law, as it is asking too much cf many of the senators to vote for such a bill and thus cut off their own revenue. A few of the senators are revenue reformers, but their reform ideas do not include such purely personal matters. The Ice Palace directors are to have a meeting next week and close up the accounts and business of last winter's carnival. They will not consult the thermometer as fre quently as was the case during the carnival season. The thermometer, if consulted, will show a difference of some 120 degrees, as read now and then. The members of the Second regiment of the Minnesota National guard are in camp at New Dim. The citizens of the beautiful little city are proud" of their military guests, a feel ing that is quite generally shown by all resi dents of the state. The militia has ever acquitted itself in a most creditable manner. ■ Henry Ward Beecher. will offer his serv ices to Gladstone in the coming English cam paign.

The Chicago Presbyterian ministers have about decided that it is sinful to chew plug tobacco, but that there is no sin in taking a bit of fine-cut or extracting the smoke from a good cigar. A bad cigar they are unani mous about as an abomination to the Lord. The socialists of St. Louis have abandoned their original plan of holding a demonstration on the Fourth of July. They are evidently afraid that the patriotic and celebrating chil dren will endanger the lives of the foreign celebiants. If President Cleveland keeps on vetoing the private pension bills he will make a rec ord as a wise and economical executive that will place him in the White house two years hence, whether he consents to run or not.

PAUL DAILY GLOBE, FRIDAY MOUSING, JUKE fctf, «*& MIDST THE MADDING THEONG. No base ball club is complete nowadays without it has attached to the organization in one way or another, a mascot. The mascot is c-1 . usually a small boy who Is supposed to bring good luck to the players with whom he associates. The end desired to be accomplished is as old as the national game, but the specific name of the party engaged in that line is a com" parative recent invention. *** From the early days of the National leaguo the mem bers of the different pro fessional teams have enter tained a belief that luck as, well as science had a great i deal to do with the winning' of a game. The old St. Louis nine llrst started out with a lucky attachment to the team. This was along in the seventies. The lucky individual was a negro who chanced to visit the home grounds on the very days on which the St. Louis nine came out first best in its contest with visiting- teams. This fact caused him to be looked upon as a harbinger of trood fortune for the local play ers. They fiunllv engaged him to take care of their bats while away from home, and thus attached him to the club. He lost his power, the St. Louis team was badly defeated on its first Eastern tour, and at the cud of the sl-usou was near the end of the list. The Chicago players are responsible for the mascot, so called, as in the olden days, before the composition of the bright Trench opera of "La Mascot," the specific term was not given to the luck bringer, although his prow ess in that direction was about the same as desired at the present time. The Chicago mascot is a little boy, a white boy at that. His name is Willie Hahu. One afternoon last year he wandered over to the ball park and asked the door-keeper to let him in. As his request was about to be re fused, one of the Chicago players, who had been playing iv hard luck for several games, came up and "just for luck" got the little fellow inside the ground. That very day the player who had thus interested himself in the boy played without an error and made four base hits. The boy immediately became a mascot; wag provided with a uniform, and formed a conspicuous object at each game as he sat on the bench set apart for the home players. His first trip away from home was to Detroit recently, when the latter team de feated the Chicagos two out of three games. "What is an exposition, Pa?" queried a Min neapolis child of his father, who was reading about the coming glory of the Flour City. "An exposition, my child," remarked the fond parent, who had attended such affairs in other cities, "an exposition is a place where machinery is shown at a large expense to the stockholders." The Onlooker. R. E. Lee's f.'ariu. Baltimore Sun. About five miles from West Point, at Ro konoke, lives R. K. Lee. Jr., who was a strip ling in the ranks of an artillery company when his father fought the battle of Getrys ourg. He was there, too. His estate, t hough extensive and inherited through his mother from George Washington Parke Cus tis, is cultivated by himself — not rented out. After the surrender he rode dowu straight to Kokonoke and commenced farming with his own hands, aided by a negro servant who had followed him through the campaign, and has been steady at it since, with the excep tion of a trip to Europe. The estate has been greatly improved under his judicious management. His cottage home is neat, an r\ stands out a pretty picture on an immense bend or loop of the Pamuuky, about to join with the York. A very snug bachelor retreat, it is furnished with many articles and utensils that did service at Mount Vernon; beautiful furniture, chairs, candlesticks, aud particu larly porcelain, still daintier old china and solid silverware of genuina antique form and make. Books, periodicals, newspapers are on hand as evidence of the outside world, for the cottage is five miles away from the near est habitation, though the owner has little leisure, as farming operations, attending tbe horses and cattle, require the closest atten tion, amidst such a neglected and decayed neighborhood, to make them in anywise pay. A fine picture of the general hangs on the wall in the dining-room, and of course other prized relics of him are preserved with filial pride and care. In that little cottage is Lee's sword — the one of Appomattox Court House, and which was not surrendered to Grant. Beautiful Bin. Cleveland. Cleveland Leader. Mrs. Cleveland is a beautiful woman, and she is better looking than any of the pictures which have been published to represent ner. She is of about the game height as President Cleveland, perhaps a trifle shorter. She stands straight upon her feet, and her shoulders are very pretty, very straight, and well rounded. She has a beautiful neck, pretty pink ears, and her arms are large, fair and beautiful. Her complexion is fair, but not rosy, and her eyes are perhaps the prettiest feature of her face. She smiled upon nearly every man that shock hands with her last night, and the smile seemed oach time as though it was in tended for the man to whom it was addressed. It was not stereotyped, icy or effusive, but it was full of friendly feeling and personal magnetism. She made a splendid impression. Fractured, but Not Broken. Sioux Falls Argus. P. P. Peck's little boy Porter met with quite a sad accident yesterday. While out riding his horse stumbled and threw him un der it.

The question of how long a time may elapse from the death of his wife before a man can marry again with propriety is about to come beforeja Philadelphia court for solution. It appears that Mr. Louis Wolf took unto him self a second partner of his joys and sorrows within five days after the demise of the first Mrs. Wolf. The hasty marriage excited the indignation of his brethren in the Rappaport lodge of tho Free Sous of Israel, who thought that he was using his freedom iv rather too loose a manner, and threatened him with ex pulsion. • Mr. Wolf has therefore filed a bill in equity against the lodge to restrain it from expelling him. He alleges that his second marriage was consummated solely out of his concern for his several small children, who stood in pressing need of a stepmother. He might have given the Irishman's reason also, that his first wife was as dead as she would ever be, but he neglected this. The case will give the Philadelphia lawyers something new to argue about.

Liszt in London told a friend that when he and Chopin were young some one told him that Chopin had a talent for mimicry. Liszt said to the Polish pianist: "Come round to my rooms this evening and exhibit this talent of yours." So Chopin came in a blonde wig. "I was very blonde at that time." said Liszt. Presently an acquaint ance of Liszt came in, and Chopin went to meet him and took off Liszt's voice and manner so perfectly that the man was completely deceived and made an appoint ment with him for the next day. "And there 1 was in the room all the time," Liszt remarked, laughing. They Sent to Save Heathen Souls. Judge Tourgee in a Recent Lecture.

He Mortgages Hit* Host's Piano for Spending? Money. Special to the Globe. Chicago, June 24.— AT. Paul Legard of Montreal is an extremely enterprising Frenchman. On Wednesday evening he was comfortably ensconced in a berth on a Pullman car, bound for Canada via the Grand Trunk railroad. Just as the train was about to pull, out, his slumbers were rudely disturbed by Detective Jones of the Central station. He was persuaded to put on his clothes and go to the Armory station and. pass the re mainder of the night in a cell. M. Legard is a son of a Montreal merchant. As a dutiful son should, he lent his abilities to the enhancement of his father's estate. This he did, so it is said, by having his father go into bankruptcy for $150,000. upon which transaction Legard pere real ized over $75,000. Some ten days since M. Paul came to Chicago to pay a visit to friends, who lived nicely upon one of the avenues on the South side. On Wednesday morning his host was obliged to leave town suddenly. The visitor at once took steps to make some RETUKX FOR THE HOSPITALITY he had received. M. Legard returned to his friend's house and informed his wife that her husband had negotiated a loan of some money upon which lie had mortgaged a line piano, which they had brought with them ' from France. Presently, when a piano truck was driven up to the house, she made no objection, other than a few tears of regret, to the removal of the piano. It was taken to Nichols' warerooms, where the wily Mr. Legard obtained $133 as a loan upon it. That done he pro ceeded to make himself comfortable by dis posing of all but $39 of the money, some of it in preparations for a journey to Montreal. Contrary to his expectations his friend re turned home Wednesday evening and learned of the treachery. He at once took the name of M. Paul Legard from his visit ing list and then proceeded to the Central station and related the story of deceit and fraud. M. Legard went to the county jail yesterday in default of §500 bail to await a hearing. He telegraphed to his worthy sire to come to Chicago immediately with the $500 necessary to bail him out. THE ANARCHISTS. In St. Louis They Are Objects of Sympathy. -•'" ./■; St. Louis, June — There was an in teresting scene enacted at the court of crim inal cuttings to-day in connection with the election of a special judge to try the cases of the anarchists charged with indorsing at an unlawful assemblage -the action of their Chicago brethren during the haymarket riots in that city. There were only a score of the members of the bar present to partic ipate in the election, and the majority of those evidently favored the defense, for William Burch, an outspoken advocate of socialist doctrines, was chosen. Judge Noonan recognized the significance of their choice, and knowing him to be at present visiting in New York city, ordered that he qualify by or before 6 o'clock this evening, which time was also mentioned for a new election, should Mr. Burch not ap pear. Prosecuting Attorney Claiborne arose and asked' leave to enter a nolle prosequi in the case. Judge Noonau answered: "It is exceedingly unfortunate that such a result as you. describe should be brought about. I do not know how or where to fix the responsibility for the delay that this selection has caused, except to place it on those who participated in the election. Gentlemen before taking part in these elections should certainly acquaint themselves with the facts in the case. Tour nolle!prosequi in this case is accepted." New warrants, however, were immediately issued for the anarchists and they will be rearrested and another judge will be elected to try the cases. Is He a Bigamist?, Special to the Globe. Vincexnes, Ind., June 24. — News has been received here that Dr. Solomon War ren was convicted at Syracuse, N. V., of bigamy. The court stated that the divorce he had obtained in Nebraska from his first wife on the ground of desertion could not be recognized in New York state, where adultery is the only complaint on which a separation can be based legally. The court, at the request of the defendant's counsel, suspended sentence pending an appeal, to the first Monday in September and fixed the bail at $6,500, which the doctor easily obtained. The case will probably go to the United States court on a question of constitutional law. The jury convicted Dr. Warren in accordance with the instructions of the judge of the court in his charge, but earnestly recom mended him to mercy. The doctor seemed as cheerful as could be expected over the verdict, but feels that he is in a deplor able predicament. Dr. Warren is a resi dent of Vincennes. It is the general opinion that there was no chance of an ac quittal and that the unfortunate affair must be settled eventually in a conflict between the laws of New York and Nebraska, and that considerable litigation will come out of it yet. Dr. Warren has started for his Western home. Shot in Court. Baltimore, June — Late last night a difficulty occurred between Jerome Kuhue and Wallace Owing, during which Owing was cut with a knife. Kuhne was arrested and brought before a magistrate this after noon, but before any witnesses could be found Owing stepped forward and shot Kuhne in the region of the heart. He'« Safe ( at Any Rate.

Disastrous Effect of a Very Warm Day on the Human Brain. Chicago News. "Hot enough for you? Warm day, ain't it? How's this for hotl Rather warm, eh?" These are a few of the most aggra vated meteorological chestnuts to which the average man has to submit in the sum mer, and whicli he himself uses every time he gees a per son whom he knows. The practice, begun doubtless in mild sarcasm some ages ago, has grown to the most fearful propor tions, infecting every class, every trade, and every profession. It is not confined to the ignorant and the witless, but can be heard in the ranks of thinkers, lawyers, preachers, politicians, men of letters, staid business men, clerks, laborers, street car conductors and beggars. The inclination of the American to so ciable garrulity has something to do with it. Although eminently a man of business, he is ever ready to stop on the street and waste several minutes with a man whom he knows but slightly and — that only in a business way — in such brilliant repartee as this: "Hello, Jones!" "Ah, there, Smith!" "Hot enough for you?" "1 should smile, Tin sweating like a horse!" "Pretty warm weather." "You bet! It's a scorcher." "Well, I must be getting along!" "So must I. Keep cool." "I'll try." "Well, so long!" "Take care of yourself!" And the two idiots part, only to meet other idiots, and go through the perform ance again with but slight variations. And this in face of the fact that the thermome ters are indicating 'JO ° in tne shade. So long have they gone through this rigamarole of idiocy that they fail to notice ihe super fluity of their remarks. And they haven't originality enough to keep their mouths shut. The practice has become almost unendur able, and strangers so often apply it to you that one is often tempted to reply in the same strain as did Burdette, when a fiend told him it was cold. The humorist un buttoned his coat, began fanniug himself, and said: "I don't rind it so." "Pretty good sleighing." rejoined the other. . "No," said Burdett, "there is no snow, and its very warm and dusty." The granger moved oil a step, and said: "If you ain't crazy you're an awful liar." "Goodman," said Burdett. "I expect I am, but lam not a fool. I may tell startling lies, but Ido not talk like an ass; and I would be thought a liar and a maniac rather than an imbecile. I do not come into a car where the thermometer marks three de grees below zero and tell a living, breath ing, intelligent, sensitive man that it is cold. 1 do not watch sleighs spiuing by and then attempt to instruct, amuse or startle him by telling him the sleighing is good. I would rather astonish a man than bore him. In order to astonish him I may have to lie to him, but that is better than boring him. You might as well sit down and tell me that twice two is four as to tell me that it is cold. You might as well tell me that George Washington is dead as to tell me that sleighing is good. Go away, good man, go to sleep. "I tell you it is fine; there is no snow; there is dust, and there are roses. 1 walked from the north pole this morning. Go, get thee to a nunnery, and when you can model your conversation on something besides the United States signal sen ice re ports, come and wake me up and hold me in the matchless charm of your instructive talk." Not to Be Bluffed. Detroit Free Press. "President and wife git in town last night?" he confidentially inquired on the market yesterday morning. "No, sir. They are not coming this way that I've heard of." "They ain't! Don't they take in Detroit on their bridal tower?" "No." "Wall, that's funny. They got the story all over our nayborhood that the president and wife would be here to-day, and noth ing would do but the old woman must ride in with me to see 'em. Say, Jane, this man says they won't be here." 52 "I don't believe it," she bluntly replied, "I assure you, madam," he replied, "that any such report is false. The presi dent and wife are in Washington." She would not be convinced until her husband had inquired of several other per sons and received the same replies. "Waal, you've had your trip for noth ing," he remarked. "I guess not," she replied, as she ciTmbed down over the wheel. "Samuel, the first thing on the program is ginger ale. Then comes soda water with sarsaparilla syrup. Then we'll have peanuts and pop corn," and, if we feel like it, we'll spread out some on candy. I'm going to show the president of the United States that he can't bluff me wuth a cent!" Returning Good for Evil, Texas Sittings.

A SEASON OF STRIKES. TheXake Shore Switchmen at Chicago Still Hold, the Fort. Three Hundred Silly Girls Quit Work at Cincinnati. The Striking Switchmen. CmcAGO, June 24. — During the day there was no change in the situation at the Lake Shore yards. Incoming freight trains have all been stopped at Englewood. The town of Lake, within the precincts of which the strike is confined, has a police force unable to cope with the crowd of strikers and their adherents. The sheriff of the county, during the former strike, made no serious effort to disperse the crowd, and in a published interview to-day con demns the railroad company, and declares that it has not lived up to its agreement, intimating that it offered to dis charge the non-union men. This charge is denied by President Newell. This evening when the regular night switch en gine left the round-house, Thomas Collins, one of the strikers, boarded the machine, and in a moment had induced Charles Coles, the engineer, to turn back. Coles informed the yardmaster that it would be impossible for him to go through the mob. During the day notice was given the switchmen that unless they reported for duty to-morrow, they are to consider them selves discharged, and are requested to call for their pay. It is asserted this evening by leaders among the strikers that before nightfall to-morrow loledo, Buffalo, De troit and Cleveland will be involved in the strike, and that a general tie-up in other departments of the company's works is not improbable. Shortly after 3 o'clock an engine In charge of an engineer named Shea pulled out of the round-house at Forty-lirst street, and was immediately SUKROUNDED BY STRIKERS. Excitement became very marked, and the men for a time were very threatening. The police arrested one of the most violent strikers, and succeeded in clearing the track, alter which the engine started up to Forty-third street to the vicinity of the ca boose, which was abandoned yesterday. The crowd grew momentarily greater and more boisterous, and the courage of the en gineer finally deserting him, he took the en gine back to the round-house. The crowd cheered frantically when the ef fort to move the train was abandoned. At various newspaper officers this morning the committee as an explanation of ther # course as strikers ex hibited the following communication, dated during the former strike and written in Sheriff Hanchett's chirography upon one of his official letter heads: Sheriff's Office, Chicago, June 23.— T0 W. L: Stahl, Esq., Chairman of Committee: Sir: If all the switchmen of the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern railway in i Chicago or Cook county return to work at once, I will personally guarantee that within sixty days from this date the eight objectionable switch men will be furnished other employment and permanently removed from their present posi tions. Seth F. Hanchett, Sheriff. A call has been issued and quietly circu lated for a meeting of all the general managers and general superintendents of the railroads centering at Chicago. The object is to discuss the merits of the switchmen's strike and the course to be pursued by connecting roads regarding it. ■ It is recognized that if the Switchmen's union is disposed to back up the Lake Shore men, complications must arise with other roads. The managers say they will insist that switching to the Lake Shore shall be done the same as if no trouble existed, and if the Switchmen's union orders out the men on this point the issue will be fought out if railroad traffic comes to a standstill. The Letter Carriers. New York, June 24. — A large mass meeting was held here to-night at which resolutions were adopted demanding that congress pass trie bill limiting the labor of letter carriers and other postoffice employes to eight hours per day, and asserting that every man, of whatever party, -who shall assist in defeating the measure will be held responsible therefore at the polls. Among those present was Grand Master Workman Powderly, who pledged the support of the Knights of Labor to the principle of the bill. TJie Scale signed. Milwaukee, June 24. — The local com mittee of the Amalgamated association of iron and steel workers to-day submitted Its scale for the ensuing year to the represen tatives of the North Chicago Rollins mul company at Bayview.

Lewiston, Me., June 24. — The Knights of Labor in this state propose to address open letters to the candidates for the office of governor and to all candidates for the legislature, demanding a decided "yes" or "no" without any "glittering generaliza tions." Among other things in the inter ests of labor they will demand that the can didates pledge themselves to vote for a ten hour law, employers' liability bill, repeal of the law of imprisonment for debt and the abolition of the trustees process. Girls on a. Strike. Special to the Globe. Cincinnati, 0., June 24.— Nearly 300 girls at Krippentlorf & Detmer's shoe fac tory went on a strike this morning for a curious reason. They all belong to the Hannah Powderly assembly, Knights of Labor, and are ardent partisans. This morning a man had a row with a Mr. Thane of the Knights' executive committee, in the alley next to the factory, and was severely hurt. The girls concluded the row was on account of the Knights of Labor and, refusing to believe otherwise, walked out. The proprietors expect them back to-morrow. She is Fancy Free. Chicago. June 24. — The newspaper re port that Miss Josie Medill, daughter of the editor of the Chicago Tribune is to be married abroad to a son of James G. Blame is utterly without foundation. In fact, it is authentatively stated, that Miss Medill is not and has not been engaged. Steamship Arrivals. London — Arrived : The Bohemia from New- York lor Hamburg 1 .

James BlQk of the schooner and Richard Golden, the cook, were drowned. A Smart Boy. Washington Capital. During the terrific thunder storm that came over the city last week a little eight year-old boy livin? in the northern part of town was awakened, and called his mother, who was sitting in the drawing-room down stairs. She sat with him a little while and told him he need have no fear, because God took care of little boys and would not let the lightning hurt them. "But God is 'way up in heaven," said the child. "Yes," replied the mother, "but He is here, too; He is staying right in the room with you. He can protect you, but I can not. As long as God is hero you need not be afraid." The child was quieted, and the mother went back to the drawing-room. Pretty soon there came another deafening clap of thunder, when the boy, crawling out of bed, came to the head of the stairs and called again. "What do you want, George?" asked hia mother. "You come up here and stay with God awhile and let me go down stairs," was the ranlv.
