OILMAN'S PLAN FOR SWEEI
REVENGE. WILL HE RON FOR GOVERNOR? SATURDAY'S GLOBE. VOL. X WANTS Jo_ RETIRE. Hon. Edmund Rice Says He Doesn't Wish a Second Term in Congress. He Writes Chairman Kava nagh That He Is Too Old to Run Again. Haughen Checkmates One of Knute Nelson's Little Schemes. John Farrington Recommend ed as Collector of Cus toms at St. Paul. f pecinl to the Globe. Washington, May 3.— Congressman Edmund Rice, of Minnesota, lias sent a letter to the Hon. P. T. Kavauagh, chairman of the congressional commit tee in Mr. Rice's district, in which lie declines to again be a candidate for congressional honors. The colleagues of Mr. Bice from Minnesota and many others of the body of which Mr. Rice is a member, express regret at this step, as they hold him in high esteem and had hoped that his career here might be lengthened by other terms. Mr. Rice gives as the reason for his act that his age will not allow him to do justice to the needs of the large constituency he represents. Following is the letter: To P. T. Kavanagh, Esq.. Chairman Fourth Congressional District, of Min nesota — My Dear Sir: am constrained by personal considerations alone to say to you that 1 cannot, nor do 1 desire to be, a. candidate for re-nomination to congress. If I survive to the end of my present term, 1 shall have become sev enty years of age, and, if I were to be re-elected, unfitted, by reason thereof, to do justice to the position of a mem ber of congress for so large and import ant a constituency as is comprised in the Fourth district, which now num bers, I think, over 500,000, the most pop ulous congressional district in the United States. Such a district requires the services of a man in the full vigor of life, mentally and physically. I can not hope to be in that condition, nor could 1 expect to fill the position with satisfaction to myself, nor to my con stituents. 1 do not underestimate the honor con ferred upon me by the people; and the manner in which it was tendered 1 shall always cherish with most grateful remembrance. Please accept for yourself and your associates on the committee my sincer est regards and thanks for the efficient canvass conducted In behalf of my elec tion. Very respectfully yours, Eduvsd Rice. IT DIDN'T WORK. Nelson's Scheme On the Duluth Bridge Bill Failed. Bpecial to the Globe. Washington, May Congressman Baughen, of River Falls, Wis., has been watching Knute Nelson for some time to prevent a coup d'etat on the Du luth bridge bill. Nelson frequently asks unanimous consent for his meas ures and gets them through in that manner. Yesterday Haughen was com pelled to accompany a constituent to the departments and left tin; house dur ing the tariff debate. About 5 o'clock Nelson took advantage of Haughen's absence and asked unanimous consent for consideration of the Dul nth bridge bill. No one objected, as Knnte is usually lucky in those things, and the chair was about to put the question to the house when "1 object" rang out from the north door as Iluughcn rushed In flushed and excited. He will not give Nelson another opportunity to play the unanimous consent dodge on that bill, as the people of Superior would never forgive him if he let the bill pass. Farrington to Get It. Specinlto the Globe. Washington, May The president signed the bill creating a collection dis trict at St. Paul, with a sub-district at St. Vincent. John Farrington, of St. Paul, an old merchant, who was deputy collector at St. Paul, has been recom mended for the position of collector by Rice, Wilson and Mac Donald, and those gentlemen have also united in recom mending the appointment of Collector Guernon, of St. Vincent, to be deputy collector. AGAINST THE CHINESE. ft. Bill to Absolutely Prohibit the Entry of Chinese Laborers. Washington, May 3.— ln the senate to-day Mr. Stewart introduced a bill to execute the stipulations of the new Chinese treaty. Referred. It abso lutely prohibits, after ninety days from its passage, the entry of Chinese labor ers or laborers of Chinese descent, wherever they may have been born, ex-, cepting only such as were at the date of the treaty or shall bo ninety days after the passage of the act in the United States, who may leave the coun try, having a right to return in pursu ance of the terms of the treaty, and such other Chinese laborers as may enter the country for transit across the United Stales. The last-mentioned class are permitted to enter only at the ports of San Diego. San Francisco, Port land, Or.; Boston, New York and New Orleans. it is made a misdemeanor, punishable by fine and imprisonment, for the master of a vessel to bring in nny Chinese laborer not lawfully en titled to enter. The secretary of the treasury is empowered to make such regulations as he may see fit to secure the rights of the Chinese persons named In articles J and 3 of the treaty, and to protect tho United States against the coming and transit of persons not en titled to the benefit ot said articles. He Is authorized to proscribe the form of xsr^^^^*S2^_^^sf c v^ p the certificates to be issued, and to re quire the deposit of the photograph of the person to whom the certificate is is sued. False personation of the individ ual named in the certificate is made punishable by not more than $1,000 fine or five years' imprisonment. Chinese persons found unlawfully in the United States may be arrested, and, upon conviction, may be returned to the country whence, they came, the ex penses being chargeable against the parties who brought them in. Diplo matic and other officers of the Chinese government are ; exempted from the operation of the act. State courts are prohibited from admitting Chinese to citizenship. THE CATTLE POOL. How the Chicago Syndicate Con trols the Market. suing ton. May The senate re sumed consideration of the bill for the establishment of a bureau of animal in dustry and to facilitate the exportation of live stock and their products. Mr. Palmer addressed the senate in support of the bill and had read various com munications "to show the animus of the opposition to the bill," which was, he said, "machine work right through." The general idea conveyed was that the opposition came from the existing bureau of animal industry. In conclu sion he expressed the hope that the bill would pass. If it did not. he would have the satisfaction of having acquitted himself of his duty, Mr. Vest said that if one-tenth of what was stated in the correspondence which had just been read was true, the com missioner of agriculture should be hurled out of official life, disgraced and dishonored. If the commissioner had used his official position to defeat or ad vance legislation he was unworthy to be a messenger, much less the head, of that great department. But he (Vest) d d not believe these statements. He had been diligently searching for the truth all through the labyrinth of speeches and literature on this subject. He could not support the bill. He proceeded to speak of what he called "the cattle syn dicate," and said that the people were helpless and within its power. It was the most terrible tyranny ever exer cised. There were five men or firms in the city of Chicago which regulated the price of cattle every day. They met every night FIXED THE PRICE for next day. The Missouri farmer who found from the market quotations that cattle were 3or 3>.<c a pound, shipped his cattle to Chicago, but when he got there he found that the syndicate had put beef down to 2or 2}V cents. He could not store his cattle as they would be diminishing every day in weight and quality and so he was coerced to sell. He went to an agent of Armour's and was told that the price was 2)4 cents; he went to another Armour agent and got the same answer. He was met all over the city with the unvarying re sponse "2>.< cents a pound," and he had to take it. So that these men owned the cattle raisers' property and confis cated it as if they possessed the right to take it from his farm without paving him 1 per cent. Talk, said' Mr. Vest, about trusts. Talk about pools. The cattle pool of Chicago is the most in famous tyranny that ever existed in the United States. They have got their collar on the cattle producers of the en tire West. And 1 know of no remedy for it. The statesman who would in vent the remedy would deserve a monu ment more enduring than the capitol. He would perform the highest benefaction on the people of the Northwest and of the cattle raisers of the country. Mr. Plumb had also something to say on the same subject. In his opinion the worst combination in the country was the combination of beef and pork pack ers, having its headquarters at Chicago. There was no trust or combination, the Standard oil trust, the sugar trust, the copper trust or any other trust, that had had so powerful or so baleful an influ ence as that combination. For years the prices of cattle to the producers had been going down. They had gone down, he thought, 50 per cent. In the same time the price of meat to the con sumers had gone up, and every single dollar of the difference had gone into the pockets of that combination. PROTECTION'S PLAN. Like the Ohio Politician, it Claims Everything. Washington, May 3.— Mr. Wilson, of West Virginia, (a member of the ways and means committee) to-day said that the opponents of the tariff bill repre sented the issue to be between free trade and protection. It was rather an effort of the people to recover the right to tax themselves. The time was when the test of loyalty to the country was devotion to the Union in the struggle for its preservation. Lately, however, the country had been told that even a Mc- Clellan and a Hancock must be ranked as allies of the confederacy because of their disloyalty to a particular party; but in this debate a new test had been set up and we have heard the name of a citizen who stands before the world as the foremost living representative of American literature with a long and honorable record of public service be hind him, a poet whose words in days past— like Luther's words, had been "Battles" for freedom, connected with that of Benedict Arnold because he would not how down to the feet of pro tection. He repelled Mr. Burrow's criticisms of the manner in which this bill was prepared, saying that such crit icisms could not justly be made by those who stood for the defense of the exist ing law, which he said was prepared in secret conference and hurried through congress without being sifted or read. Mr. Kelly had called his Democratic colleagues bourbons, and then almost immediately said he would deal with the surplus after THE PRINCIPLES OF COLBERT. and his great pupil, the Emperor Napo leon. But Colbert was the minister of the chief of the Bourbons and neither Colbert nor Napoleon were teachers to whom the citizen of a free republic could turn for instruction as to laying or expending taxes. It was Colbert who built up his master's navy by chaining to the galleys thousands of in nocent citizens, just as protection had built up monopoly. by chaining millions of farmers and laboring men to its serv ice. It was Colbert who defined the art of taxation to consist in "so plucking the goose as to get the greatest possible amount of feathers with the least possi ble amount of squalling," There never had been a more apt or complete defini tion of a protective tariff. When it came to dealing with our own history protection acted on the rule of the Ohio politician, to claim everything. What ever we had gained in common with all other enlightened peoples by our efforts and theirs by man's growing control over the powers of nature from the ad vance of science and of invention, what ever added wealth had come to you from the rapid settlement of a great continent, the enterprise and industry of its people and its mineral and other sources, all these it ca'mly pointed out as its fruits, although it had nothing more to do with them than with the mo tion of the planets and the tides of the sea. But those things for which it is chiefly or partly responsible it studi ously ignores. It .has nothing of the growing antagonism of capital and labor, of the twenty and odd thousand strikes and the twenty and odd hun dred lockouts in our industrial estab lishments in the past six years alone; of the long depressions, the building up of great wealth by favoritism, which in order to retain its privileges was ever ready to COBBTO7T TirE BALLOT BOX and intimidate voters; the rapid.cen tralization of manufacturers in .a few great corporations, and their recent us ing into formidable trusts. In discuss ing the question of rates of wages. Mr. Wilson referred to the remarks of Mr. Allen, of Massachusetts, as to the pros perity of the wage earners of Lowell, lie wanted to compare, he said, the con dition of the Lowell operatives under the Walker tariff and their condition under the present tariff. To show their condition under the revenue tariff, he quoted from Dickens' "American Notes" an extract highly compliment ary of the prosperity and intelligence of the workingmen and women of Lowell; and to show the reverse of the picture he quoted an extract from Pigeon's "Old World Questions and New WorM Answers," in which the connection of Lowell operatives is drawing in dark corners. We will keep the country rocking from ocean to ocean until we secure justice and fair dealing among all the citizens. You may strike down that tribune of the people at the other end of the avenue, who, putting aside all ideas of prudence, spoke out that ringing summons that rallied the people as nothing else ever did. You may sfrike down the leaders of this fight as you struck them down in the last con gress and the previous congress. Those who hold the standard may fall, but I other hands will take it up and move forward. The^pirit of our intelligence ! is behind us. The spirit of liberty is be- I hind us. All we can hope for, the dcs ! tiny and greatness of this country,urges us forward; and in the language of our i speaker: "Whoever may falter, who- I ever may fail, the people of the country mean that its glorioug destinies shall be preserved; that they shall be transmit | ted unimpaired to posterity; that the j country shall not belong to monopolists j on one hand, or to communists on the other, but shall be, as it was de signed fro be, of the people, for the peo ple and by the people." Wants an Increase of Pension. Special to the Globe. Washington, D. C, May Nelson presented a petition of thirty citizens of Stevens county asking an increase in the pension for Moses W. Adley, of that county. They state that the pension laws limit his pension and his is a case meriting special legislation. He is a good citizen of untarnished reputation and zealous to obtain a livelihood, but his disability prevents, and he is needy. Mr. Nelson says he believes the bill will pass. . Army Bills Reported.

Washintox, May 3.— Congressman Mac Donald will speak to-morrow after Congressman Caswell, of Wisconsin, and will be followed by (iuenther, of Wisconsin.

Sherman's Last Appearance as Commander. Cixcixxati, May 3.— At the annual dinner of the Loyal Legion last night, Gen. Sherman, the commander, pre sided, and was toast-master. He in timated in the beginning that brevity was desirable, as some of the com panions were growing old. His remarks were listened to with marked attention, especially when at nearly 2 o'clock in the morning, he arose to say good-by. It was felt by many that this would probably be his last appearance, as he has declined a re-election and his resi dence in New York makes it incon venient for him to attend. An almost death-like stillness prevailed. The gen eral spoke with feeling of the extraor dinary scene. He said it was delightful to see such a body of men together, so strong physically and mentally, and to hear such speeches. He was sure no European country could produce such a gathering, yet he had seen similar meet ings all over this land, from Maine to Puget's sound— even in New Orleans and Atlanta. The lessons of patriotism and loyalty to the flag inculcated here he begged his companionate carry home with them and teach them to their children and grand-children, and with this he said farewell, asking the com mandery to join in singing "America." Responses to toasts were made by Gov. Foraker, Gen. Villard " Warner, of Alabama; ex-President Hays; Col. D. P. Dyer, of St. Louis ;'Capt. Thomas Speed, of Louisville; "Gen. John P. Rea, of Minneapolis, and Col. Smith A. Whit field, of Cincinnati. Gen. Sherman re mains here till to-morrow. He has been the recipient of many attentions from the members of the commandery and others. 'WBm '■?**?''* SAINT PAUL, MINN. FRIDAY- MORNING, MAY 4, 1888. NO PERSONAL FIGHT.

He was serenaded and given a reception at the hotel by local Democrats. In a speech he said that the fight upon Church was not personal.

His position was indorsed by a number of local Democrats in speeches made. Day will remain here to-morrow. THE CnURCn MEN JUBILANT. Special to the Globe. Benson, Minn., May About forty five of the delegates to the Watertown Church and Day convention arrived here this afternoon and are awaiting transportation to points in Dakota. The Church men are jubilant, but the others seem to have had their Day turned into night. Maj. Bangs, the head and front of the Day faction, in an interview with your reporter, said the Church crowd had misrepresented him. That the as persions cast upon him by reason of his course in opening the convention were ungrounded ami untrue. Reports from others, some of whom were of his own faction, go far to prove that the gentle man bit off rather more than he could chew. BOTH sides claim victory. Special to the Globe. Huron, Dak., May . 3.— Many . dele gates are here this afternoon returning from Watertown, but none seemed pleased with the work done. Each con demn the other for cowardice in not: passing division and admission resolu tions, and both factions claim to be the victors and certain of success 1 at St. Louis.

The body was burned beyond all recogni tion. Carl Tesch, keeper of the poor farm, recognized the shoes as belonging to a pauper named Ernest Perren, who had left the poor house the day previ ous. At first it was thought that Perren, who was weak-minded, had wandered around, and, finding the burning brush heap, had sat down on a log and fallen in and been burned to death. A post mortem and inquest was held to-day. The doctors' evidence went to show that Perren was dead before being put on the fire, and the jury brought in a verdict that deceased had come to his death from violence at the hands of unknown parties. No cause can be as signed for the murder of this unoffend ing pauper. Continues to Crawl Up. Special to the Globe.

He has conveyed to London, secretly, the following infor mation. There are grave fears of a social uprising. The crown prince is protected by extraordinary police precautions whenever he appears in public.

Rome, May B.— the chamber of deputies to-day Signor Crispi, prime minister and minister of foreign affairs, stated that the British government had twice offered to act as mediator in the differences between Italy and Abyssinia, and the Italian government had felt bound to accept the offer, it having received proofs of England's friendship. "England has no interests opposed to ours," continued the premier, "and knows well that we shall never injure her and that we may, under certain circumstances, aid her. Al though the mediation mission under taken by England did not succeed in ac complishing its object, still its services were useful, in that it apprised King John of the pacific intentions of Italy." Motions were aftewards proposed de manding the recall of the troops at Massowah, but the chamber at Signor Crispi's request postponed action upon them. Signor Bovio, of the extreme left, in the course of an interpellation, advocated an Italian foreign policy in the line of an alliance of the Latin na tions. Premier Crispi, in reply, said that the policy of the country ought to be directed toward a practical end. Italy had alliances in agreement with her interests and she would remain faithful to them. Italy's present relations with France were excellent. The French cabinet had proffered fresh proposals for a com mercial treaty with Italy. In conclu sion he said : "France knows perfectly well that neither Italy nor Germany will ever declare war upon her. But the rights of Italy must be recognized and respected."
