INVITING THE PRESIDENT.
Yesterday evening the president was
authoritatively notified by telegraph
that the whole people of Minnesota ex-
tend to him and to Mrs. Cleveland
a cordial invitation to visit this state
this fall, and that a committee of rep-
resentative citizens of the state will
personally present to him this invita
tion at an early day. This notification
was signed on behalf of the people of
the state by Gov. McGill and Hon. P.
H. Kelly, the latter as member of the
Democratic national committee, and by
Mayor Smith on behalf of the citizens
of St. Paul, and Mayor Ames on behalf
of the people of Minneapolis.
The committee which will proceed to
Washington will be composed of thirty
Minnesotians,selected from twelve of the
largest cities in the state and represent-
ing the entire people and all the inter-
ests of the state irrespective of party.
It is understoo i that this committee will
leave here on Saturday, Aug. G. on its
feasant errand, and will go with entire
;>nfidence in having a successful mis-
sion. While their invitation will not be
bound in seal skin or distinguished by
gaudy display, it will embody the cor-
dial and hospitable wishes of the great-
hearted people of the prosperous North-
west, expressed in simple and sincere
language.
MRS. BLAINE'S BROTHER.
A great ado is being made En certain
partisan organs over the fact that a
brother of Mrs. Blaise baa been dis-
charged from an obscure federal office
down in Maine, lt seems to us that
there is no necessity for so much fuss
over the matter.
It appears that Mrs. Blame's
brother is a Republican. In addition
lie was, while holding office, a Republi-
can of the most offensive character.
That certainly puts the case in a very-
clear light. The fact that he is a brother
of Mrs. Blame has nothing to do with
the case. Being a Republican, he should
have been discharged long ago, and,
being an offensive one, he should never
have been appointed at all. That is the
whole thing in a nutshell. And it is a
rule that way well be applied to every
employe in the government service who
does not profess the Democratic faith.
This is a Democratic administration,
responsible to the people for the proper
conduct of the government's affairs. In
its elevation to power the people repu
diated Republican policy and Republi-
can officeholders. It is unfair then to
them and unjust to the Democratic party
itself that a single Republican should
remain in office.
Not only is it well that Mrs. Blame's
brother has been obliged to go. but
every other recruit from the enemy's
camp should be started after him.
OHIO REPUBLICANS.
The platform which the Ohio Republi-
cans yesterday erected in Ohio is about
as demagogic a piece of composition as
could well be imagined. Almost in
every line and sentence it breathes the
2|>irit. of prejudice and sectionalism.
It makes a bid for the vote of every
single class of citizens in the state.
Probably a paragraph deprecating the
anti-Chinese feeling of the Pacific coast
does not appear simply because, as yet,
there are no Chinese voters in Ohio. As
it is, all those who do vote receive a pat
on the bade, and are blandly given to
infer that there is nothing good in any-
tlung except the Republican party, and
John Sherman is its prophet— in Ohio.
The old, wornout sophistry regarding
the manifold benefits conferred by a
protective tariff are repeated, but the
platform does not add, what intelligent
men know is the case, that the protec
tion is all in favor of those monopolists
with whose interests, as opposed to
those of the people, the Republican
party has always bean identified. It re-
peats the time worn fallacy about a high
tariff making high wages, which the
veriest tyro in political economy knows
to be false, and is full of other specious
pleas for consideration at the hands of
the workingmeu. Then it follows with
a: bid for the soldier vote, the dema-
gogism of the reasoning being its most
distinguishing feature. The utterly
false assertions to the effect that the
administration is the declared foe of
the veterans, as shown by the veto of
the dependent and individual pensions
bills, being repeated ad nauseam.
Though the facts show exactly a con-
trary feeling on the part of the adminis
tration, the platform tinkers care not." \
They must wheedle votes at any cost.
After that, as was to be expected In a
convention so thoroughly impregnated
with Swv-hm i. vTsv.tliß blood y shirt is fee- I
wiwionrduiAAi.-i.u,iii^ unwiij w" w«w **■"'■'
bly waved and the cry of Southern elec
tion frauds, made at every Republican'
convention for the past ten years, is
again heard. Truly the old fogies were
out in force at Toledo yesterday. For
the men who concocted this wonderful
platform are evidently hot living in the
active present which regards the late
war as deadest of dead issues. And to
cap the climax, there is a liberal dose of
nauseating taffy administered the puny,
piping demagogue and time server, the
insignificant Foisakei:, whose Lillipu
tian defiance of Cleveland is given as
the reason for the rescinding of the well
meaning '"flag order.*' But then the
ways of Republican sophistry are past
finding out.
Last of all follows the expected in-
dorsement of Shecman's candidacy.
That was a matter of course. The con
vention belonged to the chronic candi- i
date and it was hardly to be expected that j
it would adjourn without doing his bid- !
ding. Throughout the platform gives i
not a single indication of statesmanship.
In every detail it is a cheap appeal to
partisan prejudice and an employment
of sophistical devices for attracting
votes.
It remains to be seen.however. whether
the intelligent voters of Ohio are as
gullible as the Toledo convention
thinks. Flies are not caught with vin
egar, however firmly Sukkmax and
his followers maybe convinced to the
contrary.

NEWSBOYS' EXCURSION.
The excursion and picnic given by
the St. Paul Globe to its newsboys mid
carriers will be a delightful affair.
The train bearing the party to the
lake will leave the union depot. St.
Paul, at '» o'clock Saturday morning,
ami Minneapolis at 0:20.
At Wayzata the grand, large steamer,
Belle of Minnetonka, under the skillful
and careful command of Commodore
Zi.mmu.wiax. will be boarded, and a
pleasant sail upon the romantic lake
will be had.
Lunch will be served by ('apt. Em-
mki.-ox in the pavilion of his hotel St.
Louis. All the points of interest about
the lake will be visited.
Several ladies will accompany the ex
cursion, and add their gentle skill in
amusing and interesting the boys.
Every precaution has been taken to
make the affair a most thoroughly en
joyable one to all who participate in it.
No newsboy who handles the Globe in
either St. Paul or Minneapolis should
fail to be on hand (and on his good be-
havior; at the proper hour Saturday
morning. Bear in mind, the train
leaves at 9a. m. sharp! Tickets must
be procured at the Globe oilice in the
two cities respectively prior to the hour
named. The boys are the guests of the
Globe company, and they are without
expense of any nature— so they can
leave their i>ocketbooks at home.

A WORD TO SOLDIERS.
While the grinders of the party or
gans and the professional veterans are
doing their utmost to prejudice the old
soldiers against the administration of
President Cleveland, it would be well
for tin- veterans to glance at an instruc
tive comparison between the pension of
fice as now administered and as it was
conducted under Republican auspices.
It has already been shown that nearly'
a half more claims have been adjusted
under Democratic administration of the
office. It now appears that in addition
to this increased attention to the veter
ans' interests. 54 per cent, of the pen-
sion office employes are the widows or
children of soldiers and sailors. Though
there are 150 less employes now on the
pay-roll than were carried there by the
Republican administration, yet 13 per
cent, more Union veterans or their rela
tives are now employed in the office
than ever before. And there isn't a de
partment in which the Union veteran,
who is also a Democrat, and there are
thousands of such, is not given the pref
erence when an appointment is to be
made, not covered by the cumbersome
civil service rules.
lt will be well for the veterans to bear
these things in mind, for the partisan
orators and editors who are fond of ap
pealing to them for support, are very
apt to conveniently forget them.

A XOVELi SUGGESTIOX.
A NOVKL SUGGESTION.
A suggestion lias been made to Em-
peror William which, if he follows,
will round off his career in such an gen-
eral outburst of fame and good feeling
as no other monarch has ever enjoyed.
In brief the idea is that the emperor in-
sist upon the cession to France of the
much disputed province, Alsace-Lor
raine Such an act. startling in its nov
elty, when the acquisitiveness of every
foreign nation is developed to the ut
most, would be far reaching in the good
it would confer. In the first place it
would do much toward assuring the
peace of Europe. Sooner or later Ger
many and France must come to blows
over the possession of this border prov
ince, whose loss France has never for
gotten and never forgiven. Not until
she again has it under her jurisdiction
j will she consider her aggrieved national
honor soothed, and I war for its posses-
sion would be immensely popular. If,
however, Germany should cede the
province to France, peace would be cer-
tain and the two nations now sworn ene
mies would become warm friends, to
gether powerful enough to keep in order
any one of their restless enemies, and
Emperor William would become as
popular in France as he is in Germany.

A THIRSTY KAItTH.
A THIRSTY EARTH.
Arc we drying up. That i- the ques
tion perplexing the North American
continent to-day. The increasing fre
| quency of drouths and their prolonged
I duration make the question a very seri
; ous one. The old settler will tell you
I of the time when they didn't know what
' a drouth was in this section of the coun
try. And the same old settler will also
! tell you that the lakes and rivers con
j tain less water than when he first knew
them, and he will point out to you here
I and there in various localities a spot of
j dry land where a lake stood when he
! first knew the country. Putting these
two facts together we naturally inquire
as to whether the drouths cause the
loss of the water supply or is
it the drying up of the
i lakes and other water sources
j which cause the drouths. At an off
j hand shot we might be inclined to take
the affirmative of the . first proposition,
and yet upon a little reflection we would
probably conclude that the latter is the
correct one. The loss of the natural
water supply is the cause of the drouths,
and the people of this country are re
j sponsible for it.. This loss is produced
by the wholesale draining of the coun
try. In the eager desire to subject
I every available spot of land to tillage,
i our farmers are robbing the country of
I its water supply. The land is drained
of its moisture. Our farmers have run
their tiling through the sloughs, they
have drawn out the water . from the
swamp, they have dried up the -pond,
they have obliterated the little lakes,
and as a compensation for it
the country is visited year after year
with drouth. .The building of so many
railroads is also contributing to the dry
ness of our atmosphere. ', Every cut that
THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: FRIDAY MORNING, ■- JULY ■ 29, ■ 1867.
is made is a drainage to carry off the
moisture of the earth. In the light of
all these facts it becomes an important
question to determine what to do to
counteract the evil that is being done by
the improvements that are necessary to
the development of the country. At •
any rate it is well to consider and dis
cuss it that the people may devise some
means whereby these troubles may be
overcome. Of a number of suggestions
that have been made respecting this the
ory, the most thoroughly sensible one
that we have seen is a suggestion
contained in Hill's National Buil
der. Mr. Hill holds to the
theory that artilicial drainage .is not
only contributory to drouths, but is also
the cause of the frequent tornadoes that
devastate so many sections of the coun
try. Drouth seldom prevails in the
European continent, and its absence is
ascribed to the fogs and moisture which
are driven upon the continent by the
west winds. The moisture is drawn
from the ocean and wafted inland, par
ticularly freshening the verdure of lre
land.and hence the brilliant green of the
Emerald Isle.
The remedy that Mr. Hill suggests is
that the farms of the inland states be
dotted with ponds and miniature lakes.
Instead of running the drains through
and out of the swamps, they should lead
to an excavation of such size as circum
stances will permit, which should be
made at a depth of three or four feet,
where the water will gather and will re
main throughout the year to • furnish
moisture which, through evaporation,
will pass into the clouds to be returned
in rainfall to the needy earth. He thinks
that it would be wiser for the govern
ment, instead of expending millions of
dollars in building levees and embank
ments along the great rivers, to make
this expenditure in holding the, water
where it is needed in the up-country.

IX A BOX.
The present English ministry seems
to have got itself into a box. It seems
that it is obliged, in order to maintain a
show of impartiality, to enforce the
crimes act in Ulster, where it has many
friends, as well as in other parts of
Ireland. If it does these supporters
will no longer lend the ministry the
countenance of their influence and
votes; if it does not, others who are op
posed to discrimination will fall away
from it. However, it matters little
which horn of the dilemma the Salis
ninv ministry accepts. It has com
mitted itself to a policy of which the
great mass of the English people, lovers
of fair play as they are, do not approve,
and any additional opposition will only
hasten the end, which can not in any
event be farther away than the next
general elections. Mr. Gladstone and
Mr. Pauxki.i. are daily gaining ad
herents, and there is every indication
that the passage of the crimes bill, in
the disrepute it has brought upon the
present ministry, is the most fortunate
thing that could have befallen the un
fortunate people of the Emerald Isle.
CARLISLE AND CLEVELAND.

Congressman Carlisle, of Kentucky,
is a gentleman very highly thought of
in the Northwest, as indeed he is all over
the country. He is a man who, while
always an earnest Democrat, has never
allowed partisan considerations to ob
scure his view when broad questions of
statesmanship were under discussion.
He has justly been given credit for the
ability to observe more intelligently/

being able to form his judgments with
out political bias. :^jsd
It is for these reasons that a recent in
terview with Mr. C.vi.i.isi.K regarding
the impression made upon the country
is especially valuable. In the able Ken
tuckian's opinion, we have never had a
more conscientious president, and to his
mind the people are eminently satisfied
with -Mr. Ci.i:vi:i.ANi)'s administration
of public affairs. It has been an admin
istration not for party, clique or indi
vidual, but for the entire country.
He thinks the people cannot fail to
recognize the fact that their interests
have always been of paramount import
ace to the president and for that reason
the administration has been clean,
honest and efficient. It has accom
plished more than any other ever did in
the way of expediting the transaction of
public affairs and has gained the con
fidence of the people in no small degree.
lt has vindicated the judgment of the
people in elevating the Democratic party
into power and given them good reasons
for its continuance.
And it may be added that there are
thousands in this country, thousands,
too, who will vote at the next election,
who agree most emphatically with all
that Mr. < ai;i.i>i.i: says.

Montevideo Commercial.
In answer to a letter from the editors
of the Commercial to Gen. 11. H. Sibley,
the officer commanding the United
States forces at the capture of the camp
across the river in 180:2, we have re-.
ceived the following reply under date of
St. Paul, July 10:
Yours of Ist hist., inclosing slip from
your paper, containing an account of
the unearthing of relics.on the site of
Camp Release, was duly received. A
reply was deleyed in consequence of the
Illness of the writer. The belief that
these war relics were found on the spot
where Camp Release was situated, is
undoubtedly correct, and that J his
toric ground ought long since to
have been secured by the state, as you
suggest. The great Indian camp that
was captured on the 25th of September
(not August), 180:2. two days after the
decisive battle of Wood Lake, contained
more than '2,000 redskins, upwards of
100 young female white prisoners, who
had* been saved from the general slaugh
ter, to minister to the brutal lusts of
their savage captors, and 200 or more ,
mixed bloods, most of whom were kept'
in durance, because of their supposed
sympathy with the whites. It is ; but
just to the latter, and to a few of the
warriors who professed Christianity, to
state that they did what they could to
mitigate the sufferings of the poor
white women and girls of tender age.
but the claim of this or that Indian, so
frequently made, that he had surrend
ered them to me. is purely mythical.
They were delivered up to me in person,
in the center of the hostile camp, upon
my peremptory demand, and a more
touching and pathetic scene than was
then presented, is seldom witnessed.

they feared they were not to be freed

had been held for three or four weeks

safety, and conducted under escort to
our own camp, where tents had been
pitched for their accommodation, and
where they were made as comfortable
as our limited means would allow, until

A Pretty Shrewd Trick.
A Pretty Shrewd Trick.
; Sleepy Eye Herald.
: It is not very often that a farmer can
beat a railroad company in playing a
sharp game, but it was neatly done by a
farmer in Rice county, who desired to
ship a carload of cattle from Ohio to
Faribault. He could ship them through
Faribault to St. Paul for £40 less than
die could ship them to Faribault. So his
cattle were billed to St. Paul, with the
privilege of having his car side-tracked
when necessary to feed and rest his
stock. Reaching Faribault his car was
side-tracked, the cattle taken out and
.driven to his farm and shipped no

An Unsavory Relic.

Sleepy Eye Herald. -
The man Tutttle who has achieved
some notoriety by his mouthings against
the presence of the president at St.
Louis, turns out to be an unsavory relic j
of the war. On the authority of (apt. i
1). V. Johnson, U. S. N., who com
manded the river fleet in 1804. Gen. Tut
tle. who was then in command at Vicks- j
burg, was a party to a scheme to rob a I
loyal planter of £100,000 worth of cotton, j
The other conspirator was Judge B. S.
Hart, then United States treasury agent |
at Vicksburg, who was soon afterward j
compelled to resign. Johnson says Tuttle
disappeared shortly after the transac- i
tion. _

Seemingly an effort is being made by

down the sister cities. Certainly their
aggregate wealth and influence are as
suming menacing proportions to such as
may have an idea of doing anything to
antagonize their interests in any way.
It is just as well to inform St. Paul and
Minneapolis in time that they do not
own the state body and soul. Duluth is
rapidly ousting them of what little they
did hold, and we country folks will suf
fer none from this fact, j

Chips From the Ties.
All the accounts from the lied river valley
show that the crops in that region still have

continues cool, as it is desired that it should
lie. The same can be said of the Devil's Lake
region, and all through the northern part of
the state and territory. Along down the
hreckenridge division, where it is an older
country, the crops are not expected to be as
heavy as they are in the lied river country.
The Minneapolis & St. Louis makes a one

CHICAGO BUCKET SHOPS.
CHICAGO BUCKET SHOPS.
How They Try to Get Ahead of the
Board.
Chicago, July 28.— The legislative
act making bucket shops illegal was
pronounced in Judge llorton's court by
Attorney Sidney Smith -yesterday to
have been rendered substantially val
ueless through the ease with which a
bucket shop may secure an ex parte in-
junction restraining the Chicago board
of trade from denying them quotations.
State Legislator Henry Decker a couple
of weeks ago secured an ex parte in-
junction from the circuit court in the
case of several shops against the board
of trade and the Western Union Tele-
graph company, restraining them from
cutting off the complainants' quotations.
Judge Smith went before Judge Hoi ton
yesterday to have the injunction
dissolved. He said it was use-
less for the legislature to pass acts and
the board of trade to take steps to clean
out objectionable dealers in grain if the
courts were going to practically tie their
hands by injunctions. Further than
this, the issues involved in this case
case were identically the same as those
recently decided in a case by Judge
Bagley. The rule of the circuit court
was that when one judge settled the law
the other judges in the same court
would refuse to change it, else this case
must be argued before eleven judges.
What was the use of multiplying the
number of judges if they were all to try
the same questions? The board of trade
was tied up by an injunction in a case
similar in all respects to a case it had
won and it was not allowed to untie it-
self. .Judge llorton finally agreed to
let the matter lay over until . Monday
when Judge Tuley will probably take
it up. _
CUT FURS. -
What They Are Worth and Where
They Come From.
It is estimated that, not less than
0,000,000 kittens are annually brought
into this sinful world, writes a Boston
correspondent of a Western paper. Of
these the great majority are misera
bly drowned— inhuman practice
which is destined shortly to be done
away with by the recognition of the cat
as a* fur-bearing animal. Bugs of se
lected maltese and tortoiseshell are
already quite expensive, and excellent
imitations of various furs are made
in this material. -Taxidermists, too,
are advertising for kittens by the thou-
sand, to stuff tor ornamental purposes. -
The fur dealer in whose hands 1 placed
my priceless seal overcoat this morning, _
for summer storage, gave me some | '
interesting information regarding the I I
use of pussies' skins in his trade, i Said ! 1
he: ''The only purpose to which they j .
are applied in this country is the nianu- 1
facture of carriage robes, but/vast intra* j |
hers of them are sent to Europe, where j i
they are in great demand for coats and i i
hats, dressing gown linings and other
garments." :"ey -
"And where do the pelts come
from?" AyX
D "From all parts of the country. They
are gathered by professional fur collec-
tors, who supply us with them by the
quantity at regular schedule rates. A
common cat skin is worth five cents, a
pure maltese ten cents, and a black one
twenty-five cents. The cheap kind must
be dyed before making up, but the black
and maltese are prettier with their color
unaltered. A carriage robe of the best
cat fur is worth $40 to $50."
'•But how do the collectors get hold
of the pussies?"
"Shoot them. There are always plenty
of stray cats running wild in the rural
districts. The Maine woods are full of
them. They breed wonderfully fast.
and it is good sport popping them off the
fences and stone walls along the road-
side. Not infrequently, too, the rustic
small boy is glad to dispose surrepti
tiously of the family tabby for a small
equivalent in cash, and thus an im
portant industry receives beneficial stim
ulation." '_
CASH GIRL LUNCHES WELL,
And the Detective Thinks She Has
Been Stealing.
New York Sun.
. A stout, well-dressed man sauntered
into the lunch room connected with one
of the up-town dry goods stores the other
day. His keen, blue eyes took in the
occupants of the room, but he seemed to
be entirely occupied with his thoughts
as he stood at one of the windows, ap
parently looking out into the street.
A little cash girl came into the room
and sat down at one of the tables re-
served for employes. In a moment she
was joined by another cash girl, and this
conversation ensued :
"Mary.'" said the first little girl, "what
are you going to have for lunch?"
"1 am going to have a sandwich and a
glass of milk," replied Mary.
"O, I am going to have more than
that," said the first girl, with a nod;
"my mother gave nic a quarter to spend
for lunch."
The stout man did not appear to pay-
any attention to this conversation, but
when the two girls had finished and gone
away he walked up to the water and
asked:
"What did Lillie Gorman buy?"
"She bought chicken salad and ice
cream," replied the waiter.
"How much did it cost?"
"Thirty cents," was the reply.
The stout man nodded, and, leaving
the room, walked down stairs to where
the cash girls were busily floating
around. Quickly singling out the one he
was in search of, he called her aside into
a room which was fitted up like an office.
"Now, Lillie," he said, "I want you to
tell me where you got the money to pay
for your expensive lunch today."
Lillie turned all the colors of the rain-
bow, but, assuming an air of innocence,
said ;
"I got it from my mother."
"Very well," said the stout man.
"Where does your mother live? lam
going up to see her and ask her about
it."
The little rogue was now thoroughly
frightened and burst into tears. After
a short interval she confessed that she
had stolen the money from a parcel.
She received a severe talking to, after
which she was taken before the super-
intendent and discharged.
"These young ones are the torment of
my life," said the detective to the repor
ter. "Many of them are as expert as
professionals at thieving, and can lie
with the assurance of a boss bunco
steerer. Every day word comes from
one of the counters that wrong change
has been received. (). of course, the cash
girl didn't take it ! The tears well up in
her eyes, and you feel like kicking your-
self for having breathed a word against
such a cherub. All the time she is lying
like a small-sized Satan. The first ques
tion a detective asks himself when he
suspects a person of theft is : What has
become of the booty? Then he wants to
see the thief dispose of it. That's what
I do with these little thieves. I have
found that when they steal their natural
desire is to get rid of. their money right
away. The lunch counter is the place
they come to to do it. When I see one of
them, indulging in luxuries and eating
as much in one day as she earns in two
then I know the cause and make no bones
of accusing her right away."
VERA" UNPLEASANT
Trials of Alexander A'erhovay
in His Summer Sojourn at Sara-
toga.
Alexander Verhovay was visiting
Saratoga Springs and trying to keep
cool by drinking congress water. When
he went to the Springs he anticipated
that his pocketbook would be
somewhat lightened by his trip,
but he probably never dreamed
that an effort would be made to collect
all his property before he could get
away, and that an angry woman and an
injured husband would be on his track.
Verhovay had a somewhat ro
mantic adventure before starting
for the summer resort. Mrs.
Kate Cleary has entered suit to
recover $227.86, the amount she claims
that Verhovay owes her for board. The
bill was contracted some time during
the years 1883 and 1884, when the gay
deceiver was stopping in New York,
and making his headquarters at the
house then occupied by Mrs. Cleary,
No. 1323 Second avenue. He left
the state without settling the
bill and went to Florida.
When he left the South for Saratoga a
fascinating married woman, Mrs. Web-
ber by name, accompanied him. Mrs.
Cleary, through her attorney, has
procured from the supreme court an
attachment against her former boarder's
property. She says that he takes his
departure from Saratoga and New York
state on short notice, as he heard that
Mr. Webber, husband of the eloping
woman, was journeying northward as
fast as trains can take him.

Eats Peas With His Knife.
London Society.
All the Mrs. Lion Hunters seem to
have gone clean stark raving mad over
the burly charms of the American cir
cus man. Nothing is too good for him,
from the box seat of Charlie Beres-
ford's coach to a seat at the sup-
per table of any fad niongering
hostess who is fortunate enough to
work a mutual advertisement by secur-
ing the buffalo person's presence at
dance or reception. Now, against Buf
falo Bill himself we have not a word to
say. As a showman he is a distinct
success, and the very fact, which we
deplore, of his getting* himself
asked to London drawing rooms,
proves that he is not only a circus
manager, but an "advance agent"— that
is the correct Americanism of more
than common enterprise. But it does
seem passing strange that ladies should
go out of their way to ask to their
houses a man who professes not only to
have indulged freely in the uncleanly
outrage of skinning the head of his
fallen foes, but to have treasured the
relics of such nasty surgery.
Apart from this. Bill is said to carry
his firm belief in the knife into the
supper rooms of his new friends, giving
preference to that implement over his
fork for the purposes of "trailing"
round his plate, and finally convey-
ing to his mouth the new peas and
other luxuries with which he is
supplied, his maneuvers being watched
with open-eyed admiration by the other
privileged guests. Scalps and Buffalo
Bill reign in the very same, rooms that
a year or two ago were the temples of
the sunflower and Oscar Wilde. After
all, Buffalo Bill for choice.

Washington, July 28.— presi-
dent to-day received a telegram from
Senator Harris, saying that a committee
of 100 citizens of Memphis was coming
to Washington to invite the president tG
visit that city during his Western trip.
The president telegraphed to Senator
Harris in reply to use his influence to
prevent any movement of the sort. He
said that while he will always be pleased
to see the people of Tennessee at the
capital, he thinks that they ought to be
spared a long journey to Washington
during the heated term on a mission of
this sort, when a written invitation sent
by mail be as effective and as much ap
preciated. Similar answers will be sent
to other Western cities were arrange-
ments are being made to send invita
tion—bearing committees to Washing-
ton. It is stated at the White house
that the president will give the same
consideration to invitations received by
mail as those borne by committees, no
matter how large and impressive tho
latter may be.
Loitisa-ii.i.k, July 28.— A great mass
meeting of citizens has been called to
be held at Central park, in the center of
the city, Saturday, Aug. 6, for the pur-
pose of formally inviting President
Cleveland to visit the city in October.
An immense photograph will be made
of the audience and a picture symbolic-
ally framed will be conveyed to the

PLEURO-PNE A.
Work Done for the Suppression oi
the Disease.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, July 28.— The chief of
the bureau of animal industry has just
made a preliminary report to the com-
missioner of agriculture on the progress
of the work for the suppression of
pleuro-pheumonia for the six months
ended June 80,1887. He states that tho
last appropriation of 350,000 and the law
giving authority to compensate for dis-
eased and exposed animals, also to quar
antine and disinfect premises, has en-
abled the bureau to accomplish very
much more than had been possible pre-
vious to that time. The new rules and
regulations made to conform with this
art, issued April 15, for co-operating
with the various states, though assum-
ing much more authority than the old
ones, have been very favorably received
and accepted by the authorities of
twenty-two states and seven territories.
The legislatures of the states of Illinois,
New York, Rhode Island and Virginia
have passed acts giving full authority
to the ' officers of the bureau for the
quarantining, condemnation and de-
struction of animals affected and ex-
posed to dangerous and contagious dis-
eases. Pennsylvania is the only state
believed to be affected with pleuro-
pneumonia, the authorities of which
have declined both to accept the new
rule and regulations and to give the na
tional inspectors any recognition in this
work.
CONSTITUTIONAL CENTENNIAL
The Philadelphia Celebration All
Arranged for.
Washington", July 28. — A committee
from Philadelphia, representing the
constitutional centennial commission,
headed by Hon. John A. Kassou, had a
conference with the president at tho
White house to-day, and agreed upon a
programme for the celebration, as fol-
lows :
DSept. 15— A procession, industrial display
contrasting the commerce ana industrial ami
social characteristics of the coun,ry in 1787
with those of 1887, In the evening the gov
ernor of Pennsylvania will hold a reception
in honor of thegovernors of the states and
territories.
Sept. 10— military parade and review
by the president of the regiments and com-
panics of tlie militia of the several States and
territories, accompanied by their respective
governors and staffs and by such forces of
the army and navy of the tinted Slates as
shall be detailed for that purpose. In the
evening of the same day the president of the
United States will receive the governors oi
the several states and territories, the repre
sentatives of foreign governments, the niili-
tarv and the people at large.
Sept. 17.— special service of the com-
memoration will occur. The president will
preside. Justice Miller, of the United States
supreme court, will deliver an oration.
The president informed the commit-
tee to-day that he was in entire sympa-
thy with the commission and would do
what he could to make the celebration a
success. The president will be the guest
of the commission during the celebra
tion. He will be accompanied to Phila
delphia by Mrs Cleveland and several
members of the cabinet.
Sugar and Molasses.
Washington, July 28.— The chief of
the bureau of statistics has issued a
quarterly report regarding the imports
and exports of sugar and molasses since
1879. Of the customs revenue collected
in 1880, 000.000, 27 per cent, were
collected on sugar and molasses. A
statement is presented. of the estimated
consumption of sugar capita for a series
of years in the United States, Great
Britain, Germany, France and Switzer-
land, from which it appears that the
consumption in Great Britain was 74.1;
in the United States 55.3; in Switzer-
land 31.3; in France 24.2: and in Ger-
many 17 pounds per capita. Sugar has
been a favorite source of revenue.
Many of the countries from which it is
exported, impose high rate of duty upon
■it, while those, into which it is im-
ported, have as a general rule, imposed
high import duties.
A Novel Pension Case.
Washington, July 28.— Secretary
Lamar has a peculiar pension case undei
consideration. A widow has filed a
claim for pension arrearages allowed
but not paid her husband. It is shown
by the evidence, which is not disputed,
that the woman killed her husband and
was for this tried, convicted and sen-
tenced to life imprisonment. The ques
tion arises as to whether, under the cir
cumstances, she shall receive a benefit
which, if not for her murderous act,
would have accrued to her husband.
The case is puzzling the law officers of
the interior department.
