THE VETO PRESIDENT.
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

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

acquitted itself in a most creditable manner.

The Chicago Presbyterian ministers have

THE ST. 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. He was badly bruised and cut, and at
first it was thought that his leg was broken.
Upon examination it was thought that it was
ouly a fracture that would come out all right
iv a short time. The injuries are quite se
ve re and will lay the little fellow up for some
time.

Desires Another Wife.
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.

"I know it," he replied, looking at the

"Are you married or single, is what I

"O, excuse me, sir, I'm unmarried."
That's enough. We don't want your
poetry."
"Why not?" she asked, amazed. .
'"Taint poetry."
"Why, sir, how do you know? You

"That's no difference. You can't write

Two Musical Giant* at Play.
Boston Traveller.
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.

other the relations of husband and wife, to
the trustees of the church, to be used as tar
as possible to the "glory of God." I was
curious to know what course was taken,
and, upon investigation, found that, after
meditation and prayer, the pious trustees
sold their living legacy at auction and
with the proceeds sent a missionary to

Getting an Education.

Here's a new way for an impecunious
youth to get an education: The Bowdoiu

ber of the nine. < Other college clubs care so

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.

ADDLED BY HOT WEATHER.
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."

"No."
"Wall, that's funny. They got the story

ing would do but the old woman must ride

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

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

responsible therefore at the polls. Among
those present was Grand Master Workman
Powderly, who pledged the support of the

hour law, employers' liability bill, repeal
of the law of imprisonment for debt and

Thane of the Knights' executive committee,

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.

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.
