Andrew Carnegie is a millionaire Iron manufacturer who has amassed an immense fortune from the profits af forded his business by a protective tariff. Mr. Carnegie sailed from New- York last week for a summer vacation in Europe, but before departing had a long talk with a New York paper, in which he not only outlined his summer tour, but also undertook to read his countrymen a severe lecture because of their manifest disposition to lower the tariff. These two notable points in Mr. Carnegie's interview merit considera tion. As to his personal movements, he has arranged for a tour through England and .Scotland, to be accompanied by a party consisting of his own family and Mr. and Mrs. James G.Blaine. The party will travel in private convey ances and by easy stages, arrangements having been made for a series of recep tions to the visitors by various repre sentatives of British nobility living on the line of travel. It will lie a day's en tertainment here by Duke Somebody and a week's hunting on the estate of Earl (somebody Else, and a suc cession of dinners and parties in castles and halls and palaces and manors until the whole thing will re semble the procession of a princely pageant. So much for Mr. Carnegie's own movements. Now, as to what he says concerning the conditions of labor in this country. C"l think this year will see a great depression in all branches of labor," says Mr. Carnegie. "In fact, almost a complete paralysis in many branches. That, of course, means great suf fering and privation for the poor. It is a very sad prospect, but I can see no remedy just at present, under the exist ing state of things." Then, by a singu lar sort of logic, Mr. Cakxegie seeks to make the" impression that this distress ing condition of labor is due to the tariff reform agitation. But what are the tacts? • .. Taking the two pictures together one of Mr. Cakxegie traveling through Europe in royal state, and the other, painted by himself, depicting the dis tress among the laboring classes in this country— we have a truthful illustra tion of what protection has done for this land. The rich are made richer and the poor are made poorer. Here is the illustration right before your eyes; it weeds no argument to enforce the propo sition, for seeing is believing. Thus are the blessings of a protective tariff policy distributed— the manufacturers revel in wealth, the laborers who work for them suffer privations. There is another significant matter in connection with this CajbkEGlE inci dent. It is the indifference these wealthy manufacturers display toward the poor. In Mr. -Cakxegie's case there is no reason why he should not stay at home (hiring the summer and seek to alleviate the distress he is leav ing behind him. Pennsylvania has just as pleasant a summer cli mate as England or Scotland. The amount of money that Mr. CAB -Ki.ii: will expend in hauling James (1. Blaixe around on visits to the British nobility would drive the wolf from the door of many a Pennsylvania cabin. i But no, he is too selfish to let those who helped earn his money help him to enjoy it. It was just that way in the days pre ceding the great French revolution. The rich French nobleman was glad to get away from the wretched poor on his I country estates and enjoy himself in the delights of Paris, just as Mr. Cab- XEGiE is now fleeing from the wretch edness among his own employes to revel amid the luxuries of foreign lands. The wretched French serfs could not under stand why they should be compelled to live on thistles while the protected no bility washed down their pate with champagne. History is always repeat ing itself, and if violent scenes should occur it in the near future it will be be- | cause American "protected" labor will he driven to desperation by a protective tariff policy. <_. — CHOPS ALL RIGHT. In spite of the long-continued wet weather, it seems that there is no occa sion to fear a shortage in Northwestern crops. In this respect the Northwest is more fortunately situated than the country to the south and southwest, where material damage is reported. Though the season in the Northwest is undeniably late, the farmers announce their belief that the wet weather has been rather beneficial than otherwise. Particularly is this the case in the Red river valley. Upon the whole it is asserted that the indications point to a larger wheat crop than ever before. Though it would be uncharitable to make capital out of the misfortunes of one's neighbors, nevertheless it is a significant fact that the wet weather, which has wrought such havoc else where, should not have affected the Northwest in the least. It is simply a further proof that the Northwest does not go a jot beyond the truth in claiming to be the granary of the world. _»i DOES NELSON WEAKEN. Is Xxi Nelson weakening on the tariff question? His proposition in the Republican caucus to report a bill in opposition to the Mills bill indicates that Mr. Nelson might be preparing to hedge. He supported the Mokkisox bill without any ifs or amis about it, and we fail to see any reason why he should now hesitate to support the Mills bill, which he, and every one else, knows to be a more practical tariff j reform measure, and more satisfac tory in all respects, than any tax reduction bill that has yet been presented to congress. We hope that, after all the valiant service Mr. Nklsox has rendered in the cause of tar- | iff reform, he will not now prove disloyal just as victory is about to be achieved. ! We prefer to believe that Mr. Nelson's I action in the Republican caucus was in- j spired by a desire to bring his Repub lican brethren into line with himself on tin- tariff question rather than to betray ! the cause in which he lias made such a I gallant struggle. And yet. he must ! have known that the Republicans have j no idea of committing themselves to ! tariff reform, or to do anything that will j jeopardize the protected monopolists. I The existing high tariff laws are just j what the Republicans want, and they j will fi .lit the Mills bill, or any other j hill that proposes to make any altera- ) tion in our tali ft' laws, to the bitter death. Mr. Nelson knows this, and it | is very singular that, in the light of his j past record, he should be trilling with this matter. If he doesn't intend to sup port the Mills bill, what sort of a bill will he support? ___ CLEVELAND AND GRAY. There is hardly a reason to doubt that Gov. Gkat, of Indiana, will be the j nominee of the St. Louis convention for I vice president. There is only one thing to prevent it. and that would be the will ingness of Judge Tiiurmax to accept the second place on the ticket; which, I if a possibility at all. is a bare one, and very bare at that. If Judge Tiiukmax could be induced to take the nomination for vice president, he would be nom inated with an enthusiasm that has never been witnessed in a convention. It is not probable that he would consent to it; still the convention might take : a notion to nominate him in spite of his i expressed determination to retire per- \ manently from politics, and it would be I an entirely different affair from the ma chine-ma le Blaixe movement which | will exhibit itself at Chicago. But, as i matters now stand, and are likely to ! stand until the convention assembles, j Gov. Okay will be nominated on the I first ballot, and possibly by acclama- ! tion. Cleveland and Gray will I make a strong ticket, and thoroughly representative of our progressive De mocracy. _> THE BREWERS. Delegates from the national brewers, association will assemble in St. Paul to morrow in annual convention. They ! should receive a reception which will i leave no doubt in their minds as to their i wisdom in choosing a meeting place. They have paid St. Paul a marked com pliment in deciding to meet in this city, and they should see that the compli ment is appreciated. A comprehensive programme has been mapped out for the entertainment of the delegates, and it is to be hoped that all concerned will ' unite in carrying it out. The brewers are men of wealth and intelligence. Their industry is an enormous one, and in the development of it the men with brains and energy naturally come to the front. These are the men who will meet in convention in St. Paul. They have held their annual meetings in many cities, but we will warrant that none of them presented more substan tial indications of prosperity and prog ress than St. Paul does to-day. With this fact the delegates, being intelligent men, cannot help being impressed. They cannot . fail to see, too, that, great as the achievments liave*been,the prom ises for the future are greater, and, as a THE SAINT' PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MOBNINCf, MAY 29, 1688. natural corollary, that investments in St. Paul must necessarily be profitable. If further argument in support of this corollary is wished, doubtless many of St. Paul's well-informed real estate agents would he quite willing to present it to the delegates. But whether they become investors or remain simply as visitors, we extend a hearty welcome to tbe visiting brewers and wish them a royal good time of it. _. THE POLITICAL VOICE. Gen. Allen Speaks— Castle Has an Opinion— A Boom and a Barrel. Gen. Harrison Allen, of Fargo, is at the Merchants, having arrived yester- day direct from Chicago, where he went to engage headquarte r s for the Dakota delegation to the national Rep übl i c a n co n vc n tion. .This delega tion will ar rive in St.Paul on the night of .June 15, leav i ing for Chicago on the morning of the Kith. Their headquarters will be at the Grand Pacific hotel. Of Gresham and the sentiment in Illinois, Gen. Allen said: "He is the coming man, and all that I heard in Chicago confirmed that opinion in my mind. if it turns out to be true, my inner conscience tells me that he will be elected. He is pure and upright. Among the working people there is a strong feeling that he is their friend. In 1880 1 heard much of him during the Indiana campaign, and learned of the esteem in which he is held by his own people. "President Cleveland, in mv mind, killed him. by his message. 'lie gets credit for his boldness, but his policy is to throw everything open, and I don't believe the American people want that to be done.** Judge Baking coming up the general took his arm and they sauntered off to gether. *. * Joseph E. Osborne returned from Brainerd yesterday. Of his trip, he says: "I finally decided that I would not purchase the Brainerd News, and so came back. Mr. Dewey retains control of the paper. 1 wish to correct the im pression and reports that Mr. Scheffer was behind the scheme to scure the paper. He had nothing to do with it. Dewey and I are old friends and I had been considering for some time whether 1 should take his paper or not." * * Col. 11. M. Burchard, land agent of the Winona & St. Peter railroad at Mar shall, also a good Democrat and sociable companion, was at the Merchants yes terday. Of his part of the state he re marked : "Western Minnesota is solidly Repub lican, and 'they have things about their own way. The tariff discussion has aroused great interest among the fann ers though, and a decided effort is be ing made to make it an issue." * * Stewart Rice, son of Congressman Edmund Rice, arrived in St. Paul yes terday from Washington territory. That territory has two delegates in the St. Louis convention and Mr. Bice is one of them. He will remain in St. Paul until next Sunday, when, in company with the Minnesota delegation, he will go southward. *• * W. J. Bailey, of the Otter Tail Farmer, is in St. Paul.

Castle, Eugene Hay, of Minneapolis, and the now-famous Mr. Lowenstein had an interesting con fab at the Merchants yesterday. Said the Captain: "Well, I'm still here, and as I had not set my heart on going to Chicago, I do not feel so very bad."" Mr. Lowenstein— lf I had been chair man of the state convention you would have gone. The two agreed that the failure of Hennepin county to agree as a unit on Gen. Washburn complicated matters badly. The success of Davis was due more to accident than design. "If," said Capt. Castle, "that motion had been properly put before the con vention, that the four delegates -at-large should lie balloted for together, I think the result would have been that Gen. Washburn, Mr. Hartley and myself would have been at once chosen, and that would have left a fight between Heatwole and Edwards for the fourth delegate 'ship. The Blame strength na turally would go to Edwards, and he probably would have been chosen." Mr. Lowenstein — Capt. Castle, when Hartley's name was withdrawn you should have followed suit and let 'the Minneapolis candidates fight it out alone. Mr. Hay— l don't believe the Wash burn men cherish any ill feeling over the result. What did you .ay? Does any one know what Loren Fletcher's inten tions are? 1 don't think any one does. * * Merriam Advocate— l tell you that Merriam has 227 votes sure at the pres ent time.

Schoebent, a Minne apolis Cigar-maker. Found Dead by His Wife Al most at His Very t \ Door. -. No Clue Discovered as to Who, Committed the Terrible i Deed. . The Theory of Suicide Ex ploded—An Investiga- / tion on Foot, ■ j' One of the most peculiar cases that has ever agitated the police circles of Minneapolis came up last evening. It was the shooting of C. F. Schoe nert, a cigar maker, residing with his family at 1317 Washing ton avenue north. Schoenert came home from Hooker & Mauley's cigar factory, where he was employed, at the usual hour last evening in good spirits. After supper he played with his four children for a time. About 0 :30 o'clock he stepped out of doors, saying he was going .to the water closet and would be back in a short time. After he had been gone some minutes a shot was heard out near the closet, which is back on the alley, but no par ticular attention was paid to it. When 10 o'clock came and Schoonert had not returned, his family became alarmed and started out to look for him. The door to the closet was found open, but Schoenert was not there. Mrs. Schoenert thought he might have gone into the alley and she stepped around the building. As she did so a most terrible sight met her eyes. There, in the alley, FLAT OX HIS BACK lay her husband, stone-dead. His feet were touching the rear wall of the water closet, and his body lay forward in the alley, the arms partially out stretched. Mrs. Schoenert and the children began screaming at the top of their voices, and soon a crowd gathered. The first man to put in an appearance was Mr. Gulden, the proprietor of a candy store near by. He came with a lantern, and looking at the dead man found a big bullet-hole in the right temple. The flesh was powder-marked and the hair was slightly burned, showing that the muz zle of the revolver was held close to the head when the shot was fired. Sergt. Kennedy and several officers were called and made a long and care ful search for the revolver, but none could be found. Deputy Coroner Tow ers made an examination of the dead man and the premises and ordered the body removed to Connelly's morgue, where an inquest will be held to-day. Schoebent had no enemies so far as known, and his domestic life was all that could be desired. He . was comfortably situated, having a good position and earning a good salary, so that his friends do not believe that he himself fired the shot', which cut short his life. The theory i that he was murdered is strengthened by the fact that he was not known to carry a revolver, and from the fact that none was found near him, al though a most careful search was made by Mr. Golden and by the police.: Schoebent owned a small revolver, but 'this was found in a bureau drawer in the family rooms, on the second floor. Another thing that suggests the idea of cold blooded murder is that there were no signs of a struggle i of any kind. The dead man had evi dently been standing right where lie 1 was found when the bullet ended his life, as there was not a sign of any blood except where he lay. If he had shot himself, it would not have been possi ble for him to have hidden the revolver so that it could not have been found, as death was almost, if not quite instan taneous, and he fell dead in his tracks. The case is certainly A VEItY MYSTERIOUS ONE, and has a peculiar look that is not all pleasing. Mrs. Schoenert, when seen, after the sad occurrence, could offer no explanation of the affair. So far as she knew, she said, her husband was doing well, and had no troubles of any kind that would lead him to take his own life. Their home life was happy, and he seemed to "almost idolize his children. The case will be fully in vestigated. It looks now as though Schoenert, after leaving the water closet, had heard some noise out in the alley and had gone around the building to see what it was. Here he found some one who had no business there, and in attempting to get some explanation, trouble occurred, which ended in the other party pulling a revolver, plac ing it against Schhenert's head and firing. __ STANLEY IS ALIVE.

Representative Plumb Introduces a Measure for That Purpose. ; Washington, May Representa tive Plumb, of Illinois, to-day intro duced in the house, by request, a bill for refunding the public debt, and amending the national bank laws. It proposes to authorize the issue of 2% per cent fifty-year bonds payable In coin, to be exchangeable at their face value, with interest added, for government currency, national bank currency, treas"" ury notes and any other class of bonds now outstanding against the government. The securities so redeemed are to be destroyed. The secretary of the treasury is also to issue treasury notes in denominations ranging from 52 to $1,000, exchangable for these 2y, per cent bonds. Na tional banks are to be permitted to use the bonds for security for their circulation, and all currency they may receive for the bonds now on de posit is to be exempt from taxation, ex cept .to the extent of half of 1 per cent, and the fund realized from this tax (which is denominated an insurance fund) is to be used to supply any deficiencies in the assets of a failing bank. A section of the bill provides that the natienal debt shall be maintained at $1,000,000,000 as the basis for the circulating medium of the country. THE STATE PRESS. Brother Herbert's Soug. Red Wing Republican. When the high tariff men get an apos tle of high tariff nominated for presi dent on a platform that promises a re duction on internal revenue in order to make a reduction of tariff duties impos sible; when the next Minnesota state convention tollows the lead of the last, and abandons the expressions of former years and demands no reduction of tariff taxation, but an adjustment for protection which protects: when the Third district nominates a high tariff man on a high tariff platform; what an enthusiasm there will be over it all. •When it shall be said, and cannot be denied, that there is no prom ise even of tariff reduction to be got from the Republican party ,the issue will be simple. We shall have only one little, easy matter before us, just merely to prove that we do not really want any reduction, that it wouldn't be trood for us if we had it, that it would in fact be very detrimental to us, that we were mistaken for years in thinking and say ing that we want a reduction of tariff taxation. That task will be a mere nothing. We shall enjoy the ease with which the ten able high tariff young men from St. Paul and Minneapolis will convince the ten thousands of farmers who have thought they wanted tariff reduction, that it is not best for them to | have it. And will the young men be satisfied with 40,000 majority for no re duction. Only the Lord Knows. St. Cloud Times. If one thing is more evident than another in the Republican platform of Minnesota, it is that the party is for a high protective tariff. The" Red Wing i Republican says it was "double-shotted I with protection;" the Pioneer Press | says the tariff plank is a success only so j far as it attempts to say nothing on the | subject. On the other hand, the Demo cratic platform demands as a right that I the tariff shall be revised, and specifies many articles which should be placed on the free list. The one is ambiguous, uncertain, meaningless. The other is plain, direct, » clear and explicit, and after setting forth its position in un mistakable language, it closes with these words: "This is what we mean by revenue reform." The Lord only knows what the Republicans mean. . A Majority favor This. Lake? Superior News. There is an attempt made by a minor ity of the Republican party to constitute themselves the fount of political wisdom of the party, and to declare that their dogmas shall be party doctrine. Who ever ventures to appeal from this dog matism is stigmatized as a mugwump, a Democrat or a free trader, and it is hinted that lie is the venal airent of. the Oobden club, or that British gold is his inspiration. Ignorant of the party's history or willing to ignore facts, they insist on high protection, and protection for the sake of protection, as the test of party alliance, planting themselves squarely on the propaganda, "Don't touch the tariff.'' Sure as Fate. Jackson Republican. We wonder of the farmers of Jackson county will vote for Merriam, the banker and railroad speculator. We think not to any enormous extent. If the Republican party wins this fall, it will be with a good, clean man who is of the people and not of the Jay Gould stamp but with Blame for presi dent and Merriam for governor, Minne sota will go Democratic. "Wait and See. Glencoe Enterprise. The Globe's main ambition seems to be to get up a fight between Maj. Strait's and Reed's friends. We have it upon good authority that Maj.

A Level-Headed Divine. Special to the Globe. Mookhead, Minn.. May 28.— Rev. F. B. Nash, of Fargo, spoke on the subject of "Tariff Reform," at the opera house here this evening. His speech was a masterly effort.and his illustrations were clear and comprehensive. He cited in numerable instances where protective tariff was the enemy of the laboring class, which includes all who work for wages.intellectually or with their hands. He took his theme from the Scripture, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," and showed, accord ing to the Scripture, that protective tariff is a dead weight on the Ameri can people. Mr. Nash is a very able speaker as well as a writer on this subject, and sceptics only need to hear him to be reformed of their "protective tariff" ideas. It Tickles Abe. Special to the Globe. Washington, D. C, May Hon. Abe Boynton is greatly pleased with the Dakota incident to-day.

Nothing will please the Democrats more than to have the question dis cussed every day. I was amazed I when Springer to.day pulled . the deadly, parallel on the Republicans, showing them their votes in 1874 for ad mission next to Mexico, while now they oppose it. Springer knows more about territories than any man in America to day. He is simply superb, and can give the Republicans all . they want of Da kota matters. Let j Gilford work in Da kota all the time, and egg him on to do it, for it helps the Democratic party all the time." Done by Davis. Special to the Globe.

New York, May 28.— An Augusta, Me., special to an evening paper says: During a conversation with one of Mr. Blame's personal friends last Saturday, he said: "Did you know that Mr. Blame's house was broken into some time ago, while he and his family were absent, and all his political and business correspondence and private papers, in volving financial operations, which were in his library, were overhauled and a portion of them abstracted? Well, such is the fact. The matter has always been kept a secret in the hope that the thief might be discovered; but he never lias been, at least 1 never heard he was. 1 don't think that anybody in particular was ever suspected of being the thief. The supposition is that the robbery was perpetrated in the expectation of obtain ing something among Mr. Blame's pri vate papers which might be used to his political injury, if ever wanted. I never learned the character of the papers stolen. When the robbery was discov ered the floor of the library was found to be littered with letters and papers, which had evidently been carefully ex amined. Every drawer was found to have been ransacked and its contents either disturbed or dumped on the floor." ' Augusta, Me., May Journal re portes have investigated the published atory of the robbery of Blame's house, snd confirm the statement. The burg lars got only receipted bills and letters of congratulation. __ He Wants to Know. To the Editor of the Globe: 1 observe that a F. F.
