A Secret Marriage Confessed
By a Woman While
Very 111.
Special to the Globe.
Waseca, Minn., Aug. 30.—The latest
from the Seymour-Henry elopement is
that the county attorney, under whose
orders Seymour was held, has directed
the officers who have him in custody in
New York to discharge him. This is
done on account of the lack of any evi
dence on which to base a criminal prose
cution, his wife refusing to make com
plaint against him. It is understood she
would so complain if the woman would
also be prosecuted, but as it was deter
mined to let her go without punishment
Mrs. Seymour declined to complain
against her husband. Those unfamiliar
with the intricacies of criminal law may
be somewhat astounded to learn that
after a long chase and capture, a man
who appeared to have committed a great
crime, at least a great moral crime,
should thus be permitted to go unpun
ished. Yet so it appears to be. It is
reported that Mrs. Henry will return,
but on what basis the report is founded
can hot be learned. Neither Mrs.
Henry, her brothers or husband have
yet arrived.
A Detective Visits Winnipeg to
Find the Chicago lioodler.
Special to the Globe.
Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 30.—A Chicago
detective passed through here last even
ing on his way West. He made many
minute private inquiries about McGari
gle, who, he was confident, from in
formation received from agents in
Eastern Canada, had started for the
West a week ago, and must have passed
through Winnipeg. There was a man
answering to the description of McGari
gle registered here last Friday at one of
the second rate hotels, but he gave the
name of Robert Fortescue. He remained
in the hotel most of the day, only going
out at nightfall. He left the following
day, taking a ticket for Modsejaw, a
station on the Canadian Pacific railway
west. The conductor says he pur
chased a ticket there for Columbia, a
point in the mountains on the Columbia
river, It is thought he took the boat
there, going further north. The report
that tie has been seen in Victoria lends
color to the assertion of one of the
Canadian Pacific railway officials that
he, instead of getting off at Columbia,
went through to the coast. The Chicago
detective who was here yesterday pre
tended to be searching for a young girl
who had absconded, but admitted to one
of the local authorities that his real
mission was to search for McGarigle.
A Bride of Two Months Discovers
Her Husband Has Another Wife.
Special to the Globe.
Brown's Valley, Minn., 30.—
About three months ago Frank Remit,
who has worked in and around the
Valley for several years, and Mrs. Bur
ns, a widow with three children, which
she supported by taking in washing,
drove over to A\ ilmot and were mar
ried. They returned, the newly-made
bride happy in the belief that she had
made a good catch. All went merry
until one day last week, when a bomb
shell burst in the midst of the happy
household in the shape of a tell-tale
letter that told the bride that Frank had
another wife living in Wisconsin, whom
he had deserted several years ago. This
is the way it happened: Frank received
a letter from a brother, living in Wis
consin, but which he was unable to
read, his early education having been
somewhat neglected. He turned the
letter over to his bride to read for him.
She read it, not once, but twice, and
from it she learned the horrible truth.
The letter revealed the fact that her
adored young husband had another
wife. Then the air suddenly became
sultry and Frank fled from the presence
of the woman he had grossly wronged.
In fact, he fled from the town and at
present his whereabouts is unknown.
The much-abused lady has the deep

A Remarkable Phenomenon Near
Beardsley, Minn.
Special to the Globe.
Prior, Minn., Aug. 30.—The blowing
well near Beardsley has acquired an ex
tended reputation, and it is the talk of
all the country roundabout. It is lo
cated near the residence and on the
farm of Mr. Flood, four miles north of
the village of Beardsley. Mr. Flood has
had a hard time at getting a supply of
water for his farm use. but he came to
the conclusion that there was water
somewhere underneath and he was go
ing to find it. He accordingly engaged
a drill and went to work, and at the
the time of striking the vein of air he
was down 180 feet. After leaving the
surface soil they passed through fifty
feet of common yeiiow clay; they then
passed through 110 of blue clay; next
was ten feet of gravel interspersed with
coal and slate, and lastly ten feet of
clear slate, under which was the space
occupied with this compressed air. The
air as it comes up seems to contain a
large amount of natural gas, which
smells nearly like Fraser's axle grease, -
and cannot be discerned easily only by
placing the hands in the air and smell
ing of them. It also leaves a greasy
feeling on the hands. The temperature
of this air as it comes out of the well is
50 degrees F., and it comes up with a
power that has not been difinitely deter
mined. A four inch one-half inch rod
bolt thrown into the pipe is ejected imme
diately and thrown up into the air about
three feet. A twelve-inch bolt of the
same sized rod placed in the tube keeps
about three-fifths of its length out of the
pipe, and when pressed down will be
thrown out. Water thrown on the pipe
is immediately turned into spray. A
short pipe inserted partly in the current
will produce a sound like a steam
whistle, and can be heard three miles.
There is constantly particles of coal and
gravel, about nine narts coal to one part
gravel, coming out with the column of
As to what is below still remains a
mystery. As dustings of coal are con
stantly coming out, it would imply that
there is a space between the coal and
slate from whence comes the column of
air and gas.
But Not Killed.
Special to the Globe.
Northwood, 10., Aug. 30.—
night about 12 o'clock, passenger train
No. 8, struck a young man named F. S.
Johnson, who was lying with his head
upon the left rail of "the track, about a
half a mile south of town. The engi
neer saw him, and promptly reversed
his engine, but did not stop until the
train had passed by several rods.
Strange to say, the young man was not
killed, but his scalp was terribly cut up.
At this writing he is unconscious, al
though he will probably recover. Dis
appointment in love is believed to have
been the cause of his evident desire to
commit suicide. He is a young man of
good character and well thought of by
all who know him.

It Looks Like Theft.
, Special to the Globe.
New York, Aug. 30.—Developments
that will create quite a scandal were
made at a public auction of unused
stores in the navy yards to-day. It has
frequently been noticed that cuiious
articles of household use get into these
sales and are knocked down at ridicu
lous prices to people with a "pull."
Bidders were present to-day from almost
every state. The Brooklyn Standard
to-night says it has information that the
navy officials conducted the sale very
loosely and cheated the government.
The silverware lot, for, instance, was
stored in the equipment building. Be
fore the sale, so it is charged, the wife
and daughter of Naval Constructor
Pook was allowed to go over the lot and
picked out numerous articles to be sent
to her house. They included sugar
bowls, table cutlery, crockery and other
household articles. The order giving
Mrs. Pook permission to select the stuff
was signed by Pay Director J. 11.
Stevenson, who had charge of the sale.
Other articles were taken by officers of
the yard for their private use till less
than 100 pieces were left out of a lot of
300. The officers concerned make no
They Hold Their Own Against the
Houston*. Tex., Aug. 30.— Wed
nesday last, four of a gang of horse
thieves which have been making raids
near here for some time, rode to Thomp
son's switch, a small station seventy
miles from Houston, mounted on thor
oughbred horses. They ordered dinner,
after which they got drunk, fired off
their pistols and terrified the inhabi
tants of the settlement, when they rode
off in a north westerly direction. On
Saturday John Williford. a farmer and
stock man. of Cipresston reported to
Sheriff Ellis that he had two horses
stolen from him on Thursday, and that
the thieves were still in the vicinity of
his farm. Sheriff Ellis started at once
for Navasota. where he organized a
posse and started after the outlaws in
hopes of heading them off. Yesterday
morning two men rode into Houston
and notified Deputy Sheriff Albert
Erichson that the outlaws were camped
at Eureka, five miles from this city.
Deputy Ertehson mounted a horse and
immediately started for the camp of the
outlaws. On arriving at the spot where
the outlaws were camped, Erichson dis
covered the gang were gone. After
riding about for some time, the deputy
found three men camped under a tree
on the prairie. He at once telegraphed
to Houston for assistance. A posse
under command of Capt. Lubbock at
once left for the scene of action. On
arriving at Eureka the posse separated.
Deputy Sheriff Erichson and a part of
the posse proceeded in the direction of
Smokeyville, and the remainder, under
Capt. Lubbock, heading for the prairie.
The latter posse soon struck the trail,
and in a short while located the out
laws, who were still camped under the
tie;. Capt. Lubbock then
in line and advising all to reserve their
fire until within thirty yards of the out
laws, began advancing toward the
camp. The outlaws seeing this, quickly
saddled their animals and started out at
a quick gallop. After riding a few mo
ments the leader of the outlaws, who
was riding a magnificent roan charger
and having in his hat a wavy black
plume, threw his Winchester on his
arm, and slightly turning in his saddle,
began shooting his rifle, sending shot
after shot at the officers. The other out
laws, who were armed with six-shooters,
also began firing at the posse. The
posse of Capt. Lubbock reserved fire as
ordered, until it was evident that the
outlaws would reach the timber. The
command to fire on the robbers was
then given, and about forty or fifty
shots were exchanged, the outlaws
halting and making a desperate
fight. During the skirmish the horse
of Capt. Lubbock was killed. -One
of the German citizens, named Kass
ner, who lived near Hockley, was
wounded in the arm by a rifle ball. Af
ter the encounter on the prairie, Capt.
Lubbock returned to the city and an
other party started out in pursuit. It is
learned that the sergeant of a convict
camp near by had a pack of bloodhounds
on the trail, but withdrew them for fear
the outlaws would kill them. From the
peculiar method that the outlaws had of
lying low on their horses and quick
wheeling in running and firing, it was
thought that they were a part of the old
Sam Bass gang, who defied the state au
thorities of Texas a few years ago.
From the large rolls of money displayed
by the outlaws on their visit and drunk
en spree at Thompson's Switch, it is
confidently thought that they are the
same gang who robbed the Southern
Pacific train at Flatonia in June. A
dispatch was received from Sheriff Ellis
at Cypress late last night stating that he
was on a hot trail and expected to bag
his game before daylight. The robbers
are game and desperate, and a bloody
battle is anticipated should they be dis
covered. SUSS
He Has Lived High, But is Now
in Trouble.
. New York, Aug. 30.—For many"
weeks past the wholesale wine and
liquor merchants, the brokers and the
wealthy saloonkeepers have been pes
tered by two men who had tickets to sell
for various excursions and balls given
by the "Turtle Bay club," the "Merry
Mohawk's league" and the "St. Aloy
sius : Benevolent . association." The
tickets were nicely engraved on heavy
card board, and hundreds of them were
1 sold. The excursions and balls, how
ever, never came off, and a week ago
Michael Dolan, of No. 18 Bleecker ;
street, was arrested as one of the men
on the charge of obtaining money under
| false pretenses. The evidence against'
him was insufficient, and he was dis
charged at Jefferson Market police:
court. Dolan was -again a prisoner yes-;
terday on a similar charge, which this
time is well substantiated. Edward L.
Snyder, a wholesale liquor dealer, of.
No". 121 Front street, appeared as com-;
plainant. He said Dolan had a month
ago represented himself to him as a col
lector for the New York Bartenders'
union. He gave Dolan $10 as his dona
tion to the union, but afterward learned
that he was not in any way connected
with the union, and was not authorized
to collect funds for it. Detectives Mc-
Manus and Bruner, who arrested Dolan,
have been looking up his record. They
say that he has collected over $700 dur
ing the last few weeks by playing the
part of collector for the Bartenders'
union, and that his profits this summer
from the sale of tickets for mythical
balls and excursions ran up into the
thousands. .... "? 'V
They Probably Have Only a Week
More to Live.
Chicago, Aug. 30.—A week from to
day the fate of the anarchists now con
fined in the county jail will be made
public. The supreme court meets at
Ottawa Tuesday next, and the decis
ion on the appeal will be among the first
papers to be handed down. As the
fated day approaches the condemned
men are evidencing numerous signs of
anxiety, and although it is given out by
their friends that they are confident of
securing a new trial, their actions belie
the statement. Sheriff Matson, more
over, is not a whit less anxious than the
prisoners themselves. He dreads the
task which he will be called upon to per
form should the law be permitted to take
its course, and he is credited with hav
ing on several occasions expressed to
intimate friends his fears that should
the anarchists swing his own life would
pay the forfeit. That is to say he is
profoundly impressed with the convic
tion that a policy of revenge will be in
augurated by the sympathizers with the
doomed men, and that his own name
would be among the first on the roll of
retaliation. Meanwhile it is given out
that arrangements have been made by
which the sheriff will receive advance
notice of the character of the decision
and should it be unfavorable to the
prisoners, they will at once be searched
and placed in separate cells. The visits
of friends and relatives will also be
stopped, and every possible precaution
will be taken to frustrate any scheme or
plot for their release or the escape of
any one of the number. The McGari
gle episode has taught the sheriff a
and he does not propose to be caught a
second time. Just what step will next;
be taken, should the decision of the su
preme court point in the direction of
the gallows, is a mooted question.
Counsel say that they will endeavor to
get the case before the supreme court of
the United States, but some of the old
est and most experienced members of
the Chicago bar do not hesitate to.
aver that there is not a solitary
feature in the case which would warrant
a justice of the supreme court in issu
ing a writ of supersedas. If this view
of the matter proves correct nothing,
remains but an appeal to the executive
clemency of Gov. Oglesby. Little is ex
pected from the court of last resort,
although the defense committee, which
willr esume its work on Wednesday if
the decision is against the defendants,
say that the appeal will be backed up
by a petition miles long, and the signa
tures upon which will represent every
state and territory in the Union. Presi
dent Cleveland cannot possibly inter
fere in the case, although there is talk
to the effect that his interposition will
be asked. Nor is it within the bounds
of reason that the German or English
government could be induced to plead
for the lives of the prisoners, who, not
having shaken off the yoke of allegiance,
are still natives of those countries. In
short, the indications are that the su
preme court is the only bar between the
condemned men and the satisfaction of
the law. and that should the decision to
be handed down sustain the verdict of
the court below, there is no power on
earth that can or will prevent the Hay
market tragedy being expiated upon the
scaffold. ■
Two Chicago Crooks.
Brooklyn, Aug. 30.—John Harris, a
bookkeeper, was arrested here to-day
charged with victimizing several Illinois
firms in sums ranging from $1,500 to
$4,000. One of the victims was Hesseo
& Co., stove manufacturers, of Chicago.
Two Peoria firms also suffered from his
manipulations. He was arrested on the
strength of a telegram from the chief of
police of Chicago. Byron M.Howard,
of Chicago, was also taken into custody
charged with obtaining a loan of $2,G00
from the German and American Loan
and Trust company, of Philadelphia, by
false representations. Both prisoners

Had No Leader.
Flemingsburg, Ky., Aug. 30.—Over
100 colored men gathered here last night
to lynch the negro Coleman, who as
saulted a white girl near here recently..
The mob lacked a leader, however, and
no attempt was made on the jail. Elihu
and Joe Hughes, who. it is alleged, as
saulted thirteen-year-old Fannie Berner,
a few weeks ago, were badly scared.
Had Coleman been lynched these two
brutes would have suffered a similar
fate. There is now no evidence against
these two men, and they will be re
leased, Fannie Berner having been
spirited away by friends who did not
want her shame paraded in a court of
trial. ■'.'.:,.

: London, Aug. 30.— report from
Copenhagen that the czar is ill with
rheumatism and carries his arm in a
sling because of the pain arising from
that malady, is not generally believed
here, but rather it is suspected that he
is suffering from the effects of a wound
received from the pistol of the nihilist
who, disguised as. an officer of the
Guards, tired at the emperor as he was
journeying from St. Petersburg toKras
azseloa few days ago. The guarded
despatch announcing the occurrence
admitted that one of the assailant's bul
lets perforated the imperial coat, and
the inference is that it also pierced the
cuticle, if not the flesh of the czar of all
the Russias, since Russian despatches
relating to imperial state matters, or
the movements, health and safety of the
czar are usually constituted of one part
truth and ninety-nine of fiction, mys
tery and unadulterated falsehood.
of the value of the grounds upon which
various official and parliamentary opin
ions on the subject are based induces
the belief that parliament will rise for
the recess on Saturday, Sept. 10. The
supply bill will be pushed with all pos
sible haste and the other matters which
the government a few days ago hoped to
dispose of before the adjournment, will,
without doubt, be laid over until the
next session, the present temper of the
members showing pretty conclusively
that these bills could#not possibly re
ceive the attention they require during
the present session. The Irish credit
votes will be fiuished on Friday and
both parties will then begin extensive
preparations for a lively campaign dur
ing the recess. Already a
have been made for speeches by prom
inent members and before the final day
of the session arrives every one of the
members of both of the great parties
whose oratorical ability is known, the
Pafnelites being included with the Lib
erals, will have been booked for a series
of stirring addresses to the electors. Mr.
Goschen and several other speakers of
equal prominence on -the; government
side have thus far been engaged to de-:
liver one speech a week each, and it is
likely that the number of their engage
i ments will within the next ten. days De
increased to at least three a week. The
settlement of the question of -
still hangs fire. Tlie government, in
. view of the fast changing state of pub
lic sentiment, does not dare to apply the
power it demanded and secured upon
the representation that its application
to the. conduct of affairs in Ireland was
vitally necessary, and the unionists are
becoming more persistent each day in
their demands that the proclamation be
not enforced, while the Tory squires in
crease their clamor for the total annihi
lation of the Irish organization. The
government can snap its fingers at the
.suggestion that its standing and
strength is impaired by Irish evictions,
but it cannot ignore the rapidly increas
ing power of the popular protest against
the proposal to make war upon a polit
ical association for the sole purpose of
' CRIPPLING AN opposition party.
Evictions are too common and too
often justifiable to attract more than
local notice, but the government's war
upon the league brings forth as em
phatic condemnation from Scotland as
from Ireland itself, and the report that
the cabinet to-day decided to confine
the proclamation to certain districts is

'■■'•• The League Programme.,
;f Dublin, Aug. 30.—William O'Brien,
;: editor of United Ireland, presided to
. day over the fortnightly meeting of the
Irish National league in this city. The
meeting was unusually large. A num
ber of Catholic clergymen were present.
Mr. Harrington announced that Charles
: Augustus Vansittart Conybear, (Rad
ical) member of parliament for North
! west f Cornwall, and Charles Ernest
is* 'r.-'-" ■'.-■'.. -- • - • .'■''-"-'-;"
Schwann, (Liberal) member for North
Manchester, had joined the league.
Mr. O'Brien, said that the
first branch of the league
against which the government . should
issue -a proclamation would hold its
meeting with closed doors and refuse to
open them for the police, even if they
demanded admittance. This would leave
the police nothing to do but break their
way in, if they were determined to en
ter. As the police would probably re
sort to this violence, the central branch
of the league would then ask the lord
mayor to grant them the use of the city
hall, with special police to defend it
during league meetings therein. A
majority of the Dublin city council, as
well as the lord mayor, are strong Na
tionalists and leaders in the league.
The Officers Find the Job Given
Them a Tough One.
Dublin, Aug. 30.—The^ evictions on
the O'Grady estates at Herbertstown
began to-day. The bailiffs were backed
by 100 soldiers and 800 policemen. All
the houses occupied by the tenants
were barricaded and guarded for de
fense. The house of Mrs. Crimmins, a
widow, was the first advanced upon by
the bailiffs. The widow and her friends
were well armed with paving-stones
and boiling water, and both were show
ered upon the bailiffs with such telling
effect that they were repulsed no less
than four times. The sheriff's men in
their attacks attempted to crowbar
their way through the walls and roof,
and Mrs. Crimmins had the scalding
water poured over their heads, faces
and necks. After the fourth re
pulse of the bailiffs the police
attempted to s.orm the house.
They also were driven back. Finally" a
joint rush was made by the bailiffs and
police and the house was broken into
and captured. It was found that the
defenders of the widow's habitation
numbered but nine persons—five men
and four women. All were taken pris
oners. A large crowd had collected
about the house to witness the contest.
The crowd all sympathized with Mrs.
Crimmins and did all in their power to
cheer her up in her battle and to annoy
and exasperate the officers. When the
widow's party were at last overpowered
the crowd became frantic and pressed
closely, up towards the house. The
prisoners, when they were led out. sang
"God Save Ireland." The crowd joined
in the singing and became so demon
strative that the police" had to cut their
w ay out with batons.
Three tenants were evicted to-day.
Capt. Plunkett was in charge of the
evictors. The police made desperate
charges against the crowd and specta
tors and used their batons freely, injur
ing Mr. Condon, M. P.. and several En
glish visitors. Several more tenants
will be evicted to-morrow,

on the question of the vota of credit for
the office of the chief secretary for Ire
land, I. M. Healy violently assaulted
Mr. Balfour and Col. King-Harmon, al
luding to the former as an ignorant
Scotchman, careless of the duties of his
office, and stigmatizing King-Harmon as
a convict, because of his previously hav
ing assaulted a policeman in the Cre

Irish under .secretary. of hav
ing induced reporters for the Times
to suppress- their account of the
occurrence and also of having threat
ened to shoot a man of the name of Wel

Healy that Col. King-Harmon was not
present. Mr. Healy retorted that Col.
King-Harmon was within call, if he de
sired to defend himself. Mr. Healy
continued his denunciation of Messrs.
Balfour and King-Harmon, declaring
that Mr. Balfour had been appointed to
the office of chief secretary because he
despised Ireland. The chairman, upon
Mr. Balfour's appeal, ruled Mr. Healy
out of order. Mr. Healy accepted the
ruling but

Sunday evening. Miss Harton had met
him while traveling in Europe, and he
accompanied her and her father to this

affianced to him. He did not come up to
her expectations, however, and on Sun
day evening she told him that she could
no longer receive his attentions, having
proof that he was a gambler and a con

fired two shots at her, one taking effect
behind the right ear. He then ran away.

Chicago, Aug. 30.—1t was reported
here to-day that the Wisconsin Central
company is heavily interested in the
deal on foot to oust the present manage
ment of the Northern Pacific, the pur
pose being to turn the Northern Pacific
traffic over to the Wisconsin Central
lines, and to make the Central's Chicago
terminals more valuable. The latter
property represents an outlay of
16,000,000, and : the larger part
of ff the money was advanced
by J. A. Rockafeller, of ; the
Standard Oil company. At present
but two companies are using the facili
ties, the Wisconsin Central and the Min
nesota & Northwestern, and their busi
ness is not sufficient to pay the interest
on the bonds. Rockafeller owns $5,000,
--000 of Union Pacific stock, is a large
shareholder in the Oregon Transconti
nental, and, with Elijah Smith, has
pooled issues to secure control of the
Northern Pacific, as stated. Both par
ties are actively canvassing among Chi
cago shareholders of the last mentioned
company to secure the use of proxies at
the coming elections.
Made by a New York Against
Certain Roads. '
New York, Auk. 30.—The substance
of the following appears conspicuously
in the Sun. this morning:. There was
practically an absence of distressing
rumors in Wall streetyesterday,and the.
change from last week.when the air was
fairly laden with reports of impending
disasters, was grateful to nearly every
one. The most serious statement, how
ever, was made in reference to the Ore
gon & Transcontinental company, and
was to the effect that through the specu
lations of some of its directors it had be
come saddled with $3,000,000 of Oregon
Railway & Navigation bonds, which in
creased its floating indebtedness to
$11,000,000. This charge has no basis in
fact. The bonds referred to were part
part of an issue sold to a syndicate, and
as the Oregon Railway, & Navigation
company wanted the money for them,
pending" the delivery of the bonds,it bor
rowed . the: money from the Oregon &
Transcontinental company, giving its
notes for the amount and the bonds as
collateral. Granting that the Oregon &
Transcontinental may have had to bor
row some of the money to make this
transaction, it holds the notes and the
bonds as an asset against whatever lia
bility it may have incurred on account
of the transaction, and is no worse off
financially than if it had not engaged in
this piece of financiering. The whole
matter was probably within the province
of the Oregon & Transcontinental, which
was formed to build and financier the
Northern Pacific and allied companies.
It may be noted that on account of its
operation in behalf of the Northern Pa
cific company it is now trying to collect
a claim against that company of about
$3,000,000. Its efforts to have this claim
adjusted are spoken of by some of the
Northern Pacific people as an effort to
wreck that company. Wall street would
not have known much about the attacks
referred to had its attention not be'en
called to them by
that was published on Friday morning
by Kiernan's news agency, the mana
ger of which appears to have been ig
norant of that section of the law relat
ing to libel, which sets forth that the
previous publication of a libel is no de
fense for circulating the same. Mana
ger William P. Sullivan, of Kiernan's,
does not appear to have been alone re
sponsible for publishing the matter,
so far as Wall street is concerned,
since he was instigated cor in
induced to do so by Director Brayton
Ives, of the Northern Pacific Railroad
company. An investigation of the re
lations of these two persons to the
wider and more complete publication of
the attack would reveal some interest
ing facts. Since Wall street has learned
of the part Director Ives played in the
matter, and has, in consequence of the
row it has raised, procured copies of the
entire article, the expression is very
general that the literary work is, to say
the least, a very close imitation of Di
rector Ives' style. It is also remem
bered that only a few months ago Di
rector Ives was caught practically in the
act of filling the financial column of the
Evening Post with misstatements calcu
lated to depreciate the Oregon stocks.
Friday's effort was more successful, for
it unquestionably helped knock 3 per
cent, off the price of Oregon & Trans
continental, and 5 per cent, from Ore
gon Railway & Navigation. No one
can complain that the libel was not ef
fective. Naturally Mr. Brayton Ives'
persistent attacks upon the Oregon com
panies and those identified with them
have excited a good deal of interest in
the street, as Ives is prominent in the
management of the stock exchange,
being an ex-president and now a gov
ernor and a member of the law com
mittee, and also of a special committee
that is inquiring into the causes of the
present dullness of business on the ex

To Be Presented by the Young
Democratic Battalion.
Allentown, Pa., Aug. 30.—The
following platforn of the young Demo
cratic battalion of Philadelphia, will be
presented by Mr. Vaux upon the as
sembling of the Democratic state con
vention to-morrow:
There Is but one political party in the
United States which is the traditional repre- ■
sentative of Democratic principles. There
cannot be two sets of principles or a many-' - "
sided, policy existing in this party. Those
who resist the affirmance of the cardinal „
principles of the Democracyare not Democrats
and are not worthy of their acknowlegement,
or support. These traditional principles ; .
are known. Jefferson asserted them, and.
their confirmation by Madison, Jackson,
Polk and Cleveland have canonized them as
essential to the integrity of the Democratic
party. Among these time-honored and inde
structible doctrines are the inherent rights of
the states, the limited and granted powers to
the federal government within which con
stitutional limitation the federal authorities
can alone act. The power of congress to
levy duties on foreign made" products, to
raise revenue for the support of federal
government, is plain and positive, as also
to levy taxes, imports and excises, all of
which are powers granted to congress by the
states by the federal constitution and these
powers include legislation for the payment
of the public debt and pensions to those who
have earned them. These powers granted to
congress are amply sufficient for all the
needs of the people. To enlarge them by
judicial construction or legislative usurpa
tion is open violation of the organic law on
which our federal government relies lor its
existence and which die Democratic party it
pledged to maintain. A tax for the support
of the government is absolutely neces.
sary. This tax is called the tariff. All
the money necessary for the support and
maintenance of tne government, the army
and navy, the civil list and the payment of
the public debt and pensions, must be sup
plied by a tariff tax as least obnoxious to the *
public sentiment against direct taxation. A
tax to protect the manufacturers only and
force the laborers to "strike for their share
of this protection is not within the purpose
of the tariff tax and is an abuse of the duty
to make laws for the greatest good .
to ' the greatest number. The im
mense surplus now in the federal treasury
and daily increasing from taxation by federal
law is positive evidence of the abuse of such
legislation. To relieve by law the people
from the burden of this tax, levied without
justice or reason, it is the paramount duty of
congress promptly to enforce the tax on
whisky as the least objectionable of all taxes
for internal revenue by imposts or excise
law 6. We endorse the opinion of President
Cleveland in his message to congress: "I
recommend that the increasing and unnec
essary surplus of national revenue annually
accumulated be released to the people by an
amendment to our revenue laws which shall
cheapen the price of necessaries of living
and give fr^er entrance to such . imported
material as by American labor may be manu
factured into marketable comodities. .
Legislation which encourages American
industry within the specific power granted to
Congress to lew duties on foreign products
is wise and patriotic, and such legislation
most surely reaches this- result when it gives
to industry increased material, as well as
facilities for its employment, and enables it
to overcome foreign competition and stimu
late the skill, enterprise and ingenuity of the
American mechanic." True American states
manship discourages all legislation which in
terferes with the liberty of individual action,
unless it assails the rights or puts in peril the
same privileges of others. Hence the attempt -
to enforce by law questions of morals is
without the sanction of equal justice to all
