SOLVING THE LA HO It I'I'.OBLEM.
There is a misfit somewhere in our labor
conditions when so many thousand of work
in-men are out of employment in the East
ern cities, and at the same time there are so
many million of acres of unoccupied public
lands in the Western states and territor.es.
The situation is just this: In the East there
are more workingmen than work. In the
West there is more work than workingmen.
If the men who are dependent or. daily
wages for support could be made to under
stand the thorough independence of farm
life they would manifest more disposition
to take up the unoccupied lands of the
West For the present, at least, the wisest
solution of the labor problem is to colonize
the surplus labor population on Western
farms. This is a matter that the labor
or-aivzations should take under considera
tion. It would be cheaper for the organi
zations to incur the expenses of planting
these colonies than to pay the costs of sup
porting the unemployed and their families
through the winter. But as an act of jus
tice this expense should not be imposed
upon the labor organizations. It should be
borne by the general government. And if
the movement in favor of establishes a
labor bureau in connection with the ad
ministration of the general government
should succeed, one of the first things that
ought to be done by that department should
be "to devise a system by which all the un
employed labor of the country could be
transferred to our Western fields, and the
thousands of homeless workingmen pro
vided with homes on lands which are now
held by the government. If the govern
ment is able to grant reservations out of its
domain and furnish supplies to the indolent
Indians it ought to be able to do as much
for its own unfortunate citizens who are
anxious to work, but aro unable to get it.
If instead of granting the public lands as
subsidies to rich corporations the govern
ment had adopted the policy of encourag
ing the overcrowded labor population of the
Eastern cities to occupy these lands we
would have had no labor troubles to-day.
PI-LI'THNOT A CATTLE MARKET.
The thrifty town of Duluth, with ambi
tion creditable enough as exhibiting a de
sire for Detter things, but betraying in the
present instance a lack of judgment, wants
to reach out after the cattle trade of the
"Northwest and forestall St. Paul in her
cherished scheme of establishing a cattle
market. The Zenith City has admittedly
a grand commercial future before her. but
In this particular she must be content to see
the metropolis of the Northwest alone emi
nent. Duluth does not possess the trans
portation facilities to warrant her expecta
tion of securing a cattle market She is not
a railroad center, nor can her lake naviga
tion be depended upon for more than
four months during the year. She
-anno* offer any considerable local
demand and is not a distributing
point. St Paul, on the contrary, by loca
tion and acquired facilities, is the natural
center of the Northwestern cattle trade.

Southwest, and what is more, St Taul in
tends to secure the organization of a mar
ket if brains and money can possibly bring
THE DUDE OF THK FUTURE.
Those shallow-pitted young men in the
East whose principal object in existence is
the furtherance of their selfish pleasures
and the adornment of their more or less
effeminate persons, have been discussing
Willi all the earnestness and gravity of
statesmen debating the fate of a nation the
momentous question of wearing for even
ing dress garments of a more varie
gated hue and more picturesque ensemble.
The more pronounced dudes, to use
a term which has now become firmly in
corporated in the English language, have
declared in favor of the bright colored silks
and satins in which our forefathers delighted
to array themselves as against the somber
and convential black of modern times.
While viewed simply from an aesthetic
standpoint, the brightening of draw
ing rooms and ball rooms which
would ensue through the adoption of
the costumes of an olden time would be an
element in favor of the new sartorial move
ment the vanity which leads to it is en
tirely unworthy of the energetic and enter
prising youth of the present day. If they
require ruffles, laces and gay colors to bring
them into notice they must be in a very
sorry plight, indeed, and utterly lacking in
those other and more meritorious attributes
the possession of which should win them
recognition. And in an> event the occu
pancy of their minds with such
trivial matters would argue a very
unflattering condition of mental inac
tivity. In the great and growing North
west the young men have some
thing besides clothes to think about and to
recommend them, and the dude of the
future, arrayed like Solomon in all his
glory or the queen of Sheba after a fresh
shopping tour, will find but little encourage
ment in a section of the country where
•rigorous common sense is one of the most
distinguishing characteristics ot the people.
THE "MAID WHO "-ACES.
If, as Koko says, married men never
flirt, then it may be taken as a proposition
equally true that married women never
lace. Unfortunately the same excellent
statement cannot be made regarding the
maidens with equal universality. The
age which so recently existed foi taper
waists and trim figures and which for a
time sensibly gave way to a desire to at
tain a standard nearer that of which the
Venus ot Milo is the recognized type, is
again cropping out Why the fashion of
disproportionately small waists should be
regarded as fulfilling the demands of beauty
and should meet with such "ready accept
ance is, iv view of the personal discomfort
it involves to its devotees, little short of j
inconceivable. Not only does the abnor
mally small waist which is the product of •
tight-lacing fall as far short of true beauty
as does a large waist, but obtained as it is
in direct violation of physiological laws, it
is in most cases accompanied by evil results
which may prove vital. ■ Permanent injury
is too great a price to pay for the gratifica
tion of a temporary whim of capricious
fashion, and the young girls who most
readily fall victims will some day. to their
cost, discover the fact. Better let nature
have her own way iv the matter of "the
human form divine," and let tight lacing,
with its attendant evils, alone, even if fash
ion does require a sixteen-inch girth at the
A GOOD .SELECTION.
The Newsboys' Home association was
exceedingly fortunate in the selection of its
first president. Mr. Tallmadoe's serv
ices in connection with last winter's carni
val demonstrated his abilities as the man
ager of any institution in which the public
is interested. If he has a fault it is an ex
cess of energy and public splritedness. If
the board of directors will give Mr. Ta__
madge the proper backing there is no
doubt but he will make the new institution
over which he is called to preside a great
SOCIETY AND CHRISTIANITY.
Rev. Dr. Howard Crosby recently took
occasion iv a sermon to emphasize his
opinion that the great bulk of the follies
and temptations of un-Christian life to-day
is directly chargeable to society's whirl. In
his opinion the so-called Christians who
largely constitute the great army of godless
idlers whose sole idea of life is to own a
dray or a doa-cart, or to lavish thousands
of dollars on yachts and palaces, and all
other such perishable flummery, are in re
ality the worst foes that Christianity has to
contend against. They are the Jehosa
phats of this age. who are in alliance with
the Ahabs and are secretly conniving at all
the ungodliness of these degenerate times.
This is a strong statement of the case and
will doubtless meet with a strong and in
dignant protest from that class of church
people who are accustomed to find enjoy
ment in the whirl of social life. But com
ing, as it does, from such eminent pulpit
authority, the matter is entitled to receive
fair consideration. An impartial investiga
tion of the facts will probably reveal that
Dr. Crosby had more foundation upon
which to base his indictment against society
than will be generally admitted by those
who are known as society people. The
professed object of Christianity is to wield
a refining and elevating influence upon
mankind. Anything and everything con
trary to that object may be set down as un-
Christian. The first question, then, for
Christian people to determine is, whether
or not the customs of modern society har
monize with the purposes for which Chris
tianity was established. Have modern so
cial ideas and customs an elevating influ
ence? Is their tendency to develope talents
or is it to undermine them? Christianity is
an evangelizing system. It is an unselfish
system. It is charitable. Are these fea
tures prominent in the whirl of social life
to-day? Does society impress its votaries
with a serious idea of life? These are ques
tions which must be met and answered in
the discussion of this subject. Society is
exacting in its demands. It is a jealous
divinity, that will not tolerate a luke
warm worship. Those who are caught
within its vortex must give it their un
divided devotion. If, then, the mission of
Christianity is the conversion of souls, the
civilization of the world, the caring for the
wants and cares and longings of the poor,
can these things be successfully accom
plished by worshiping at the social shrine"?
If these questions can be answered affirma
tively, then Dr. CROSBY is wrong. It they
cannot be answered in the affirmative, then
*. c is riffht. and a pity it is that more of his
calling do not deal the same sledge-hammer
blows at the most degrading folly of the
The financial distress In which Canada
finds itself ought tostiggest to our Dominion
neighbors the propriety of shutting up shop
as a semi-independent government. Can
ada should sever itself from British domi
nation and set up an independent govern
ment, or it should immediately take steps
to annex itself to the United States. The
latter course would be the smoothest way
out of the muddle. If the United States
would undertake to pay the Canadian debt
and make up its deficiency, that would be
about a fair equivalent for the new terri
tory it would gain by the annexation.
The recently published account of the ex
traordinary clairvoyant gifts possessed by
an eminent Brooklyn Physician, has started
a fresh discussion in scientific circles as to
whether or not the clairvoyant faculty is an
expression of soul force proceeding from the
same principle as that which determines the
faculty of mind reading. In mind reading
the insight appears to be wholly psychic or
mental, while if anything such as a
clairvoyant power exists it evidently
must have a supernatural endow
ment or it could not be enjoyed without re
gard to light or distance or to any of the
limitations of ordinary vision. The be
lievers in mind reading are numerous. The
believers in clairvoyance are com pat ati veiy
few. Consequently there is a kick among
the believers in the former faith against
the attempt made by scientists to establish
that there is any intimacy between mind
reading and clairvoyance, or that there is
any affinity between the laws which govern
the two faculties. The tests which have re
cently been made of the clairvoyant powers
of the Brooklyn physician have staggered
the scientific gentlemen who were making
them, In one instance he sat in his office
in Brooklyn and described with wonderful
accuracy the results of a railroad accident
which occurred that day in Maine, de
scribing the scene of the occurrence, the
character of the injuries and appearance of
the victims and the place to which they had
been carried. A Brooklyn lady who had a
son visiting in Maine was so much im
pressed by the description that she immedi
ately hastened to the scene of the accident,
to tind that her fears were realized and that
her son had been killed. In another in
stance he diagnosed the case of
a gentleman who was sick in
Europe, and to whose identity he
had no other clue or guide . than
a lock of the absent person's hair. Yet he
accurately described the malady, which was
of such a character that it had defied the
knowledge of the most celebrated physi
ciaus in New York, Paris and London.
The patient died, and an autopsy demon
strated the absolute correctness of the
Brooklyn doctor's diagnosis. This incident
suggested to the scientists who have been
testing his clairvoyant powers the idea of
playing a trick on, him. Returning from a
ushing excursion one day, one of these
clairvoyant testers saw a line Alderney
heifer lying under a tree near the roadside.
lie took out his knife and cut from the ex
tremity of the animal's tail a bunch of hair.
Upon his return to Brooklyn some of this :
hair was sealed up in an envelope and de- j
livered to the doctor, with the request that j
he would describe the condition and ap
pearance of the person from whose head it
had been taken. He did not open the letter
and examine the hair, but apparently ac
centing the statement made to him in per
fect trust, he proceeded to satisfy the curi
osity of the applicants. He wrote with a
pencil on a sheet of foolscap that the origi
nal owner of the hair was at that moment
standing in a barnyard; that there was a j
wagon loading with manure near by;
that a boy was . cany Ing cornstalks j

ami heaping them up in the corner of the j
yard; that the original owner of the hair
was watching the boy with great Interest,
and. at the same time, making a hearty
meal of the cornstalks. Thereupon, the
scientilic corps who had been testing the
doctor's clairvoyant abilities gave up the
investigation and are now employing their
time in discussing the relations and affinities
existing between clairvoyance aud mind

Our distinguished fellow townsman. Gen.
R. Vi. Johnson, has given to the public, in an j
attractive form, "A Soldier's Reminiscences,"
extending over the period of a long, useful
and somewhat eventful life. The story is
pleasantly and well told in a book of 420 j
beautifully printed pages, and is, with a j
chivalrous and tender devotion, dedicated
-To her who has been a true helpmeet, and
who has borne up with noble fortitude under
the many hardships and privations which
have fallen to her lot as the wife of a soldier
in peace and war, and who has cheerfully en
dured all without complaints or murmur
ings." The book covers a wide ground,
but the events and Incidents are so pleasantly
told that the interest of the reader never flags
from beginning to end. The early life ol the
author is covered In the lirst chapter. The
striking features covered in succeeding chap
ters are his appointment as a cadet at West
Point and his life while there, his graduation
in 1549 and appointment as brevet second
lieutenant in the same year, attached to
tho Sixth infantry; his arrival to
take station at Fort Snelling in
October, and his experience during his serv
ice there; the Indian troubles iv Minnesota
this year; bis first lecture at St. Anthony
Falls; his marriage and transfer to Texas;
the war with Mexico, and incidents in that i
country: his return to St. Paul; subsequent
transfers to military posts und finally to
Texas; his impressious of tbe country and
the people: expedition to Havana; joining
in the Rebellion; the early days of
the war; bis appointment as lieutenant
colonel of Kentucky cavalry: assignment to

subsistence, ordnance, medical and pay
departments; his connection with the uni
versities of Missouri and Minnesota; inter
esting facts about Minnesota troops and com
manders; his location in St. Paul, and subse
quent incidents of his life: prominent men
of St. Paul; character of population; politics
of the state; army life; history of the early
times, and St. Paul's rapid growth; leading
and important events in Minnesota since
the administration of Gor. Ramsey; incidents
of recent date; interesting information for
army people. It will be seen from this that
there is a wide range of interesting matter,
topics of especial interest, too, to Minnesota
and Northwestern peoule. There is a great
deal ola character to call to the minds in
nesota soldiers memories of the thrilling days
of the war. In every way the book is worthy i
of a wide circulation. It is printed in Lip- 1

incidents is in a different rein from that us
ually employed by writers of books, and there
is a great deal that has never been printed

comforted unless a county vote was
read off every two minutes. This grew
to oe monotonous, of course, but it
could not be helped, and the secretary and his
assistants were so frenzied that since the ex
citement has subsided they have had to resort
to hair dye to conceal the streaks of gray that
ornament their craniums. Matters went on
for a brief time until finally, in sheer despera
tion, it was announced that the committee
could not be bothered by people seeking in
formation, as it was necessary to figure a
great deal aud absolute freedom
from interruption was required. Then
there was a dense cloud of gloom,
and everybody was in the dark ex.
cept those who bad been about the room-? a
great deal and had caught on to un infallible
piau for telling just how the battle was go
ing. These observing men had noticed, dur
ing the trying hours, a peculiar shitting of
the side whiskers of Col. Stanford Newel,
who had facilities for securing all inside
pointers (Col. Newel, it will be remembered,
is one of the members of the committee
whom the organ thanked for "efficient serv
ices" in the campaign— -alio a Republican
majority of 41,000 to dwindle down to 2,00 0).
It occurred to them that the whiskers could
be utilized -as a political barom
eter, und, if the committee de
clined to give out any news, those who were
on to the secret could tell how the fight was
going, anyhow. Consequently, a close watch
was kept of the colonel. When news unfav
orable to McGill came in, the whiskers imme
diately stiffened aud stood up, almost straight
on end, like this:
For one whole day the barometer remained
almost stationary, in this position— the news
being of a most unfavorable nature. Once
when Itasca county was reported to have given
1.500 majority for Ames, it quivered like the
quills on a fretful porcupine and made des
perate efforts to get up on top of his head, but
finally subsided when it was learned that the
rumor was false. But tbe hopes of the weary
watchers continued at a low ebb as long as
the barometer marked high tide. After awhile
the returns became more favorable for Mc-
Gill, and as the reports were confirmed the
barometer gradually settled until it showed
This denoted that the election was in doubt,
but the chances were favorable for McGill —
and the drooping spirits of the audience were
perceptibly revived. There must be an end
ing to all things, however, and finally Mc-
G ill's election was assured, being conceded by
the Democrats by about 2,000. Then the
barometer gradually assumed its normal con
dition, and it was acceptel as settling the
mutter definitely when it looked like this:
And the crowd dispersed without waiting to
see the bulletin and' the rooms were closed. J
It was feared at one time that Col. Newel
would not be able to stand the strain alone,
and an effort was mado to utilize Col-
Wheelock. But climatic influences or lack of
magnetic sympathy caused a failure, and the
Newel barometer was made to do service as
long as the result was in doubt.

C. J. Monfort, of tho Windsor, has the

The notes of preparation for the change of

the fact that J. D. Jones, the clerk-elect of the

The mule bearing the special courier of the

Prince Waldetnar's father may be a holy
terror, head and shoulders above the ordinary
parent on the male side— if so that ac
counts for it. But it Is safe to say that there
is not a boy in St. Paul over fifteen years of
age whose papa would be allowed to have any
thing to say about it It his son was tendered a
kingly crown. The boy would simply say to
the old man: "Get out, this is none of your
picnic!" and be would go straightaway and
take his seat upon the throne. There is such
a thing as filial respect and obedience when
your papa says you cannot go swimming or
fishing, but no parental interference will be
tolerated when royal honors are at stake.
It Is time to draw the line. Rev. Dr. Sam

Reverend gentlemen from the East

Charlie Gilman is a candidate for United
States senator. It will be remembered that
Mr. Oilman gave his solemn assurance that
his influence would be industriously exerted
in behalf of McGill in tho Fifth district.
The question as to whether Minnesota is a
doubtful state Is just now the subject of
fruitful discussion in the newspapers. Of
course there is a wide difference of opinion.
Mr. McGill certainly thinks it is. while Mr.
Blame thinks it is not. Defeated Republican
congressional candidates, Gilullun, Herbert

Blame. Hon. Michael Doran laughs at the

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.
War of > etticoats.
To the Editor of the Globe.
Sir: In 1856 I voted for Fremont for presi
dent; in 1860-64 I voted for Lincoln for the
same office; iv 1868-72 I voted for Grant for
president, and in 1876 voted for Haves, who
was not elected to that office.tbough he got it.
These decades carried the country through
the war aud effected reconstruction. and since
1876 1 have voted all kinds of party tickets,
upon all kinds of party platforms, determined
to get right ouce in a while If that was possi
ble. Now I have read the various comments
of the press, some condemning and some ap
plauding, the absence of Mrs. President
Cleveland from the recent receptions given
to th chief executive by the citizens
of Richmond. Va. It is under
stood that that absence was duo to
the fact that the young lady
who happens to be the . daughter of ono J.
Davis, of Mississippi, was to be present. This
circumstance has given an interstate and .
international importance to a social event, |
which bas aroused the patriotism of the chiv- i
alrous North, aud awakened the wail of the i
heroes of the "lost cause." Terrible must bo
the consequences! The war has become one
of petticoats now on both sides of the imagi
nary line which marks the waist of tbe j
Goddess ot Liberty. Let it be fought out j
until one side or the other hoists the emblem
of peace. "Treason shall not work corrup
tion of blood" are the words of the constitu- J
tion. but thee are written words; doubtless i
the political chemist could extract from a pint j
of Miss Winnie's heart's blood a quart of
treason. Let us have war! Vf. W.

attracting considerable attention throughout
the Northwest at present, owing to an
effort being made by a society under the
name of the Law and Order league to en
force the Sunday law, which has lain dor
mant upon the statute books of the city

upon the saloons. The proprietors were
arrested and got their cases adjourned.
Last Sunday every character ot business

of impeachment. Telegraph, telephone
and newspaper offices were closed, and the
proprietors of street railroads, gas works,

rested and taken into court. Trial was had
Tuesday, and all violators discharged. The
Law ami Order league is very much in
censed at the ruling of the court, and has
served a second notice on ail classes of
