The O'Neill bill establishing a de partment of labor, which passed the lower house of congress last week, will probably be asphyxiated in tlie Re publican senate. Yet it is a measure of real merit, and ought to pass. The general design of the. labor department which is to be created under this bill is to diffuse among the -people* of this country information on all subjects con nected with labor, and the best means of promoting the welfare ■of the work ingmen and .workingwomemy The bill provides in detail that the department shall be in charge of a commissioner to be appointed for four years, at a salary of $5,000 a year. In addition to gather ing labor statistics, the commissioner; will be required to ascertain and report upon the effects of the tariff : upon agricultural industry, and especially on the mortgaged indebtedness of farmers. . The bill also provides that the commission shall inquire and estimate what articles are controlled by trusts and what effect such "trusts" have had in limiting production and in main taining prices. '". '■'_% "'.-. ' _^ — ' THE STATE ENCAMPMENTS. The preparations already making for the encampments of the Minnesota mi litia indicate that the out-of-door train ing which the troops will receive this year will be more thorough than any they have yet received. It is to be re gretted that the demands which their various occupations make upon the men are so great that the time of encamp ments must necessarily be extremely limited. Nevertheless, much may be accomplished even in the brief space of a week or ten days if the encampments are regarded in the right spirit, as sea sons of hard educational work instead of periods of merrymaking and holiday enjoyment. Of course it all depends upon the com manding officers whether they shall be placed in the one class or the other. But the high degree of efficiency which the Minnesota militia has already at tained in all that pertains to the duties of the soldier, and its superiority over that of neighboring states, is a sufficient demonstration of the way in which the encampments have been profited by in the past, and promise enough of the good results that maybe gained from them in the future. One week of practical outdoor life under military discipline is worth a year of instruction in the armory, and there is every reason to believe that such training will be appreciated by the Min nesota troops in the right way. But it would be well if the national govern ment, joining with the states, would pursue a more liberal policy toward the militia during their encampments. As it is, there are certain expenses which it is almost unavoidable that individual companies must themselves bear, and in defraying which the meager en campment pay is entirely inadequate. In times of emergency the dependence of both state arid nation must be, as it has been in the past, upon the militia, and the policy to be pursued toward it can hardly, therefore, err on the side of generosity. ALEX, COME OVER. The probable ascendency of Prince William to the throne as the successor of Germany's dying emperor, Fred erick, will, without doubt, render the union of those royal lovers, Prince Alexander, formerly of Bulgaria, and Princess Victoria, daughter of Fred erick, exceedingly difficult, if not im possible. Bismarck has thus far suc ceeded in postponing the marriage, and, as he thoroughly dominates William, the latter may be expected to bring his sister's love story to an abrupt ending by forbidding the bans. Inasmuch as the contemplated union, contrary to the usual course of royal alliances, is said to be a real love match, tne Obstacles wnicn nave l.ugu-u-u the course of this true love -are all the more unfortunate. It is not long since Alexander's bravery, when as ruler of Bulgaria he drove the king of Servia out of his country, gained the applause of the world and showed him to be a young fellow worthy of every good fortune.. Having dared so much, then, when but a paltry kingdom was at stake, it is very likely that he will have courage enough to defy a gouty and j choleric old premier, who decades ago forgot the meaning of the word "love," and a prospective brother-in-law who is arrogant and obstinate on principle, when the prize to be gained is his lady love, and one who all accounts agree in saying is worthy of all devotion. But with William and Bismarck su preme in Germany there seems to be but one resource left for Alexander. Let him recall the feats of chivalry which even now are extolled in Ger man minstrels y, of the brave knights who, reveling in opposition, made off with their ladies fair on the pommels of their saddles and dared pursuit. Such a romantic ending to a courtship may be rather impracticable in the prosaic Germany of to-day, but the avenues from Berlin are many, and a railroad and ocean steamer make very good sub stitutes for the speedy steed of the olden time. .Let Alexander steal away his bride and come over to America. He will find a warm welcome awaiting him. And in the fullness of time, becoming a citizen, he may get elected to con gress by an admiring constituency, and be in a position to snap his finger at the boasted power of the unroinantic chan cellor and the imperial brother-in-law. It is every voter's business to see that his name is on the poll list. Next Tuesday will be your last chance, . : _ -^ TRUE CIVILIZING. With so much cant and arrant non sense generally prevailing in the East re garding the oppressed and abused noble red man, it is refreshing, to occasionally come across some one who paints the Western Indian in something like his true colors, and who recognizes the utter impracticability of most of the" schemes devised for his benefit. At a recent conference of clergymen in Philadelphia one member electrified the assemblage, which had been discuss ing the usual Utopian plans for civilizing the Indian, by declaring that the red men needed soap and water more than they did the gospel, and that, in fact, a lib eral use of soap was necessary before any "practical benefit could be expected from a general inculcation of the Bible. Of course there was an uproar; but the speaker, who had been an army chap lain, and who spoke of the Indians from personal observation, sustained his ground well against adversaries who were obliged to admit that their prin cipal knowledge of the Indian had been gained through the medium of Coop er's novels. There will never be a practical so hi tion of the Indian question until the nonsensical . sentimentality surround ing the aborigines is eliminated and they are considered on their merits as fairly intelligent, intolerably lazy and abominably dirty human V. beings, who naturally enough prefer to be sup ported by the government in idleness to earning their own living. Recognizing the Scriptural "assertion that "cleanli ness is next to Godliness,": the minis ters^ must perforce admit that the declaration in favor of soap as a neces- . sary preliminary to the dissemination of the gospel was strictly professional. Of its necessity for sanitary reasons personal acquaintance with the Indians would convince them. ',y -...-'. There can •be no true civilization where soap is unknown, and the In dians have yet to learn of its existence. If the efforts' of the missionaries, and other would-be Indian benefactors were expended for a while in relieving the aboriginal ignorance in this respect, * they might find the more spiritual part " of their labors bearing:' better fruits. : THE SAINT PAXIL DAILY GLOBE: MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 23, 1888/ DOES NOT WANT IT. - Senator Cullom is another one who has the good sense to step under shelter when he sees a shower coming up. It is reasonable to suppose that ' the sena tor has' ambition, and, like all other American senators, is looking forward to a time when he can round up his pub lic career by landing in the White house. But he is satisfied that this is not the year that he is to get there. His show for a presidential nomination on the Republican ticket is probably as good as anybody's, that is if we leave Mr. Blame out of view. Yet the sena tor hastens to inform the American pub lic that he does not want the nomina tion this time. This thing of running for office just for the fun. of the thing doesn't commend itself to a sensible man like Senator Cullom. y STRAY SUNBEAMS.

St. Cloud Tribune, "v V That time has come when the Re publicans have to choose between two propositions, and there is no time to lose in idle words. Is Minnesota to remain a Republican state or is it to become Democratic? Mr. McGill was elected by 2;S00 majority, and along with that is the accusation that fraud in the election returns from various counties can be proven sufficiently large to have given tne omce to in. Ames, wnicn casts a further taint on Mr. McGill's manager, Fletcher. The election in 1884 gave the Republicans above 40,000 majority, and we thus see that the extreme feeling against McGill had a fearful effect upon the party, and as that feeling is deeper and more determined to-day, his renomi nation means a Democratic Minnesota. There is no question of this. .. There is no reasonable argument that can be ad vanced at this time in McGill's favor, and we firmly believe he" would be" de feated by 10,000 majority if he were to be nominated. ,'- ; -' McGill the Man.

The main : portion of - Mr. Kelley's " speech was mere campaign buncombe. Indeed, he even descended 5 to j dragging injhe "bloody shirt" by declaring that a majority of the committee recommend ing the Mills bill were irom states which had once been under the dominion of slavery. His peroration is a wail of woe and a prophecy of evil, which ; will not at all terrify the American people, who have been thoroughly awakened to the absurdity and iniquity of maintaining a war tariff in time of peace. U-" V y Senseless Clamor. .'.;' Chicago Tribune. v The yell, "You are a free trader," is about all the argument which the advo cates of the existing war tariff 'and the/ monopolies protected by it offer in reply!; to those who are in favor of. tariff re form. Any one who proposes to make a reduction of the duties in the slightest degree is stigmatized a "free trader,'? and with this persistent and senseless clamor they expect to delude and scare the people. The latter, however, will not be deluded by the free trade yell* There are no free traders in this count try except Henry George and a little, handful of extremists whose doctrines are equally cranky and impracticable; No one else is in favor of free trade, of abolishing the custom houses, or of any thing approximating such a dangerous policy. ____y - Republican Dissensions. Philadelphia Record. The Republicans in congress are be ginning to realize the existence of fatal divisions in their own ranks on the tariff question. There are more Republicans who oppose Judge Kelley's programme of : repealing the whisky tax than there are Democrats who would support so desperate a fiscal policy. Whilst the Republican leaders remain without a policy of revenue reduction,many West ern Republicans will support the Mills bill rather than have no bill at all. In this situation the prospects of the Mills bill in the house grow brighter every day. The senate has never yet defeated a tariff bill. y^ Living Issues at Last. Henry George's Standard. The great struggle is now on— is sue is made and the discussion begun. The congressional debate will be a long one and a bitter one, for the Democrats must follow their leader, and will get more and more radical as the contest goes on. But the congressional debate is •of small importance as compared to the popular discussion to which it will lead in every nook and corner of the whole country, and which will in crease in intensity after the nomina tions are made and the national cam-,, paign begins. It is now certain at last we are to have a national campaign in which living questions are to be dis cussed. Repeal Unnecessary Taxes. Washington Post. The one great advantage which the advocates of tariff reduction possess is that the simplest statement of what they propose to do convinces unprejudiced minds that it ought to be done. Who has the effrontery to deny that taxes imposed on the necessaries of life to raise money for war purposes ought to be reduced twenty-five years after the war, in a time of profound peace and when surplus revenues threaten finan cial disaster? -'J Free Trade in Labor.

The Badger State Will Stick to Gov. Rusk Clear Through. •'.-; VILAS FOR CHIEF JUSTICE. The Democrats Earnestly in Favor of Cleveland and Tariff Re -1 j ■ form. Special to the Globe : ' Madison, Wis., April 23.— polit ical pot in Wisconsin will . begin to boil in earnest from this on. There has been comparatively little activity in the way of( national politics up to the present time, but the near approach of the state convention, which meets in this city the fote part of May, and the holding of the county conventions, has started the ball rolling. _ ; "y . -_- * So far what activity there has been has been confined to the Republican camp. Outside of a small amount of speculation over the selection of dele gates to the St. Louis convention, the Democrats have displayed no activity. The Dane county convention, which met here yesterday, brought out some little excitement over the choice of delegates to the national con vention, but aside from this and the en thusiasm exhibited for Cleveland and tariff reform, politics in this part of the state are extremely quiet. From what sentiment that can be gathered. here it is about certain that Col. George W. Bird, of this city, for several years a member of the state central committee, will be one of the delegates to St. Louis from the Third congressional district. Montgomery Smith, of Mineral Point, will probably be the other delegate. For delegates at large the only name prominently mentioned as yet is that of lion. Bruse" J. Stevens, of Madison. It goes without saying that the Wisconsin delegation will be solid for Cleveland. The talk, so frequently indulged in,con necting the name of Col. Vilas with the nomination for the vice presidency is regarded as the merest nonsense by the friends of Mr. Vilas here and throughout the state. It is the unani mous assertion of those closest to Mr. Vilas that he not only does not seek the nomination, but would positively refuse it under any circumstances. It is quite generally believed that Mr. Vilas could have had the nomination four years ago if he would have accepted.* The hope has been expressed by some of the inti mate friends of Mr. Vilas that he might be appointed to succeed the late Chief Justice Waite on the supreme bench, and there is considerable feeling that the president may make this appoint ment. The Wisconsin Republicans will send a delegation to the national convention at Chicago, composed of the very strong est men of their party in the state, and as large a crowd as admission tickets can be procured for, to whoop it up for Gov. Jerry Rusk for president. The con vention will be held May 9, one week later than the Democratic convention, at which time Gov. Jerry will be given a send-off in keeping with the favorite son doctrine. Seriously, there is a grow ing feeling that Gov. Rusk's chances for a place on the national ticket are by no means to be sneered at. One month ago the Rusk boom was not what the Rusk boom now is. At the convention of the Young Men's Republican league here in March, the Rusk sentiment seemed to be purely one naturally growing out of state pride, and appearances at that time indicated that Rusk would merely receive a complimentary vote at me hands or the Wisconsin delegation, and that at the proper time the strength of the state would go over to Gresham. That, however, was before Gov. Jerry had been given his little boost in the way of an ovation during his visit to "Washington. Jerry's little trip has changed all, and the Rusk boom is now dead in earnest. If | Wiscon sin can not succeed in securing the nomination for Jerry, the game is, p nev ertheless, not going to be given up. until everything that can be has been done. It is hinted here that a great * effort will belmade to give Rusk the first place on the ticket, but that if this is impossible, and Blame or some other Eastern: man carries off the plum,* advantage will be taken of the enthusiasm created for Jerry to spring him on the convention for the second place. There is a notice able sentiment prevalent among Repub licans hereabouts in favor of Blame and Rusk as the national ticket. - * /■ THE DEMOCRATIC LEAGUE Invites Cluhs to Send Delegates to "y" j'\ Baltimore July 4.

A LOVER'S MISTAKE. The reason why I was traveling aim lessly about the country was just this: I had secretly engaged myself to Thyrza Mayfield without even telling my most intimate friend, Jack Hassard. about the fact. I aid not know they were ac quainted until I came upon them to gether one day, he with his arms about her waist and she looking up lovingly in his face. I rushed home, packed up my traps and took to traveling to find rest for my mind. One night I arrived late at an inn where I was to pass the night, and was informed by the landlord that the only accommodation I could get was a double-bedded room with another man. . As I had journeyed far, I made the best of. the circumstances. Just as I was about to get into bed I fancied I should like to take a look at my neigh bor. I went close up to the sleeper and flashed a candle over his face. It was Jack Hassard! And worst of all he was dead . Suddenly I started, and my heart seemed to cease beating. I could have sworn that a faint breath had parted the pale, still lips. I bent closer, and earnestly examined the face. Notwithstanding its pallor, there was a strangely life-life expression about the features, and a faint, almost imper ceptible shade of pink in the lips, in stead of the livid hue peculiar to death I began to tremble violently, but I would not allow myself to be overcome, and steadying my nerves by the utmost power of will I set down the candle stick and then drew down the sheets. 1 was a physician and aware of all the tests to which those apparently dead ought to be subjected, and I was soon convinced that this was not death, but a case of suspended animation. I need not describe my efforts, my fears, my anxiety. Enough that my suspicions proved correct. Jack Hassard was not dead, and be fore the end of an of an hour his eyes had opened calmly, and were looking serenely into mine. "By Jove, old ellow!" he exclaimed, "is it really you, or is this a dream? Why, Ralph, what possessed you to lead me such a chase? I have been looking for you for weeks, and Thyrza has been beside herself with grief and terror." His words recalled all the bitter sor row which, for a brief while, I had for gotten in my efforts to restore him to consciousness. I drew back with an unintentional gesture of repugnance, which was suc ceeded by bitter indignation when I saw a smile of amusement flit over Jack's face. "You dare ask me such questions?" I exclaimed. "Fool that 1 am, to have brought back into the world such a wretch as you must be! Thyrza! You call her so, and to me! You must be as bad as herself, then." •. . "Just about," was the placid reply. "Why, you dear old Ralph, you must have seen us together, then, just as she surmised, and so you ran off in a fit of jealousy. How much better to have come boldly forward and demanded an explanation!" "You are a brazen ruffian!" lex claimed. "I do demand an explanation, since you wish it, here and now." "Softly, old fellow! You say that you have just brought me back to this world. Don't scare me out of it again before I have a chance to make things straight. Thyrza is my sister, and all that you witnessed was an innocent filial em brace, and at that very moment she was telling me of her love for you, and I was congratulating myself that the man 1 had always loved was to be in very truth my brother as well as friend." "Your sister?" I exclaimed— was the word which I heard through all else that Jack said— your sister? She never told me. Are you deceiving me?" "Dear old Ralph! have I deceived you? I ought to say half-sister, for Thyrza and I had different fathers, though the same mother. My step father was a good deal of a brute, but my . mother clung to him; and at last my dis like of him became so great that I ran away from home— that was years ago— when 1 tried to lind my mother, after her husband's death, I had a long search of it. 1 succeeded at last, and had just revealed myself to Thyrza, who recognized me at once, al though she had been but a little girl when we parted; and but for your pre cipitate departure we would have been a very happy party that night." "Your sister?" 1 repeated, helplessly. "0 Jack, will you— will she ever for give me?" "Well, I think so. And it must be ad mitted in your defense that the circum stances were decidedly suspicious-look ing." -"w" As soon as daylight came we refreshed ourselves with an early breakfast and set out together on our return to Thyrza, who is now looking over my shoulder at these last words. - So the reader will understand that she forgave me. _»►. THE SNOWDROP. The Origin of the Beantiful Win ter Blossom — A Legend of Eden. Boston Journal. The arrival of snowdrops in the city gardens as the first blossoms of the present season recalls a mediaeval legend in regard to the origin of the flower. It states that "one day after the fall Eve stood in paradise lamenting the barren ness of the earth, which no longer pro duced vegetation and where no flowers grew. An angel, pitying her sad con dition, exposed as she was to the blind ing snow which was falling at the time, came down to the earth to try to console her. ■'■:'■'■' *■' "** "He listened to her complaints, and being moved with pity for such grief, took in his hand a flake of the snow, and breathing upon it, bade it take the form of a flower and bud and blow. He at the same time added that the little blossom should be a sign and a symbol to her that the winter was over, and that the sun and the summer would soon return. On raising her eyes to ex press her gratitude to the angel he was nowhere to be seen, but on the place where he had stood was a snow white ring, which she had no difficulty in fecognizing as composed of snow drops." -> Carnegie has the Floor.

A Manager • Describes the People Who Want Something tot Nothing. Washington Star. "It's curious, too," he continued,"how fond most people are of getting dead head tickets, although they may cost them in the end ten times as much as regular tickets could be bought for at the box office. People with more wealth than they know what to do with will work like beavers, stand snub bing of all kinds, sacrifice their self respect and often spend in treating more money twice over than tickets would have cost them at the box office, in working an agent for compli mentaries. They seem to prefer free passes which put them under obliga tions to the theater people and cost them a good deal besides to the regular tickets which they might have bought at the office and beeu entirely independent of everybody. Another curious thing is the ambition which many solid business men, who are perfectly "willing to pay their way, have to be known as men who can pass in and out between the acts without the aid of a return check. They seem to think it a great privilege to be allowed to go in and out this way, apparently feeling that it argues them men of prominence. I know a number of middle-aged men, who you think would be above such vanity, who never take checks if they can help it." "What sort of a crowd is hardest to handle?" the reporter inquired, to stim ulate the flow of talk, which gave some signs of drying up. "I have the worst times at matinaes, when there is a big crowd of women. I am sorry to say it.'but there is no deny ing that women, even of the best class, are vastly harder to keep in order than men. They cannot be got to submit to regulations which are only made for their own benefit and comfort. If a po liceman tells a crowd of men waiting to reach the box office to get in line they do so at once without trouble. Rut let him try to get a crowd of women in line, and there is almost invariably a row. They crowd and jostle and hustle one another, try to steal places ahead of where they properly belong, and altogether act as if they had put off their good sense and manners when they put on their good clothes to come to the theater. If a po liceman or theater attache speaks to one of them, no matter how civilly, the chances are that he will be accused of insulting her and bring down oil him self a blast of wrath that uses him com pletly up. "People may think the scenes at box office windows which the funny paper get up now and then are exaggerated, but if you will study women buying tickets over there you will come to the conclusion that justice has never been done the subject. The average woman is never satisfied with her seats, and in variably insists that the ticket seller could give her better ones if be wanted to, no matter how good those she secures may be. Usually she winds up with an intimation that he is swindling her by keeping back better seats for people whom lie wishes to favor, and, having counted out her Mange three or four times, put it carefully away in her purse, found her pocket and stowed the purse away in it, buttoned her gloves and shook her draperies back into proper position, she starts to get out the way she came in, although the other way is entirely clear, while the wrong way she insists on tak ing is full of impatient people waiting their turn at the man in the box office.

Wise as an oracle bora of the Greeks or Chal deans. Calling aloud for a count that is honest and Hayesy, Sherman unfurls the white flag to the dear Tennesseans, Waving the bloody shirt then with a vim that Is crazy. Always wherever he travels, from Nashville to Kingston, Freezing the leaves that are dead and the blooms that are faded. Over him hovers the shade of Eliza de Pinks ton, With him abides the dark stain of the Fraud that he aided. Say, will this iceberg melt wholly before July weather, Sinking at last in the sea where it sought domination? Or will John Sherman's and other booms perish together.
