Duluth Is to Have a Mam moth Flouring Mill. Special to die Globe. Rapid City, Dak., May 29.— The In dian scare has broken out in a new place. Along Spring creek, in this county, settlers are badly stampeded, and some thirty or forty families came into Rapid City to-day seeking safety. ; As many more are said to have gone to Hermose. This scare is caused by the experience of a rancher named Mike Quinn, who went on the reservation after some cattle. A party of Sioux from Pine Ridge agency stopped him and would not allow him to re move the cattle. No threats were made other than to order Quinn off the reservation. He was told to return about the middle of June and the In dians would help him drive his cattle off the reserve. He spread the news along Spring creek and frightened people badly. The demand for arms and am munition continues. Nearly all the ri fles in the city have been sold or loaned to ranchers living in the east end of the county and all are supplied with ammu nition. Although no danger is antici pated, the whites are determined to be prepared and will give the Indians a warm reception if an outbreak should occur. Slashed With a Knife. Special to the Globe.

Six Witnesses Examined—The Story of the Crime. Special to the Globe. La Crosse, Wis., May 20.— The first day of the Kennett murder trial has been rather dull for the large crowd filling the court room from morning to night. A strictly granger jury was se cured. Nearly all are of middle life. Few, if any, served on the jury will ingly, but the question of competency was ruled on by Judge Newman, who accepted all who believed they could try the case on the evidence regardless of opinions termed by reading news papers. The prisoner was accompanied in court by his father and mother, both quite aged and feeble. Six witnesses Were examined. Three were policemen, •who were called to the house when Annie Daniel was found lying dead at 8 o'clock on the morning of the 2d of February. They told the same story about the body lying on the floor in front of the bed nearly naked, the room in confusion, kerosene on the carpet and the body and two candles lighted stand ing on the carpet and burned down to less than an inch. One member of the coroner's jury testified as to the kero sene on the carpet. The two most im portant witnesses there, A. P. Allen, freight conductor on the Burlington road, who arrived in the city at 2:55 a. in., went to the house, found the light burning, and being unable, to arouse any body, broke open the doors, found the body lying on the floor with candles on either side and summoned, a police men. On cross examination an effort was made to fix the crime upon him; but this failed so completely as not to be worthy of notice. He got in town at 8:25, and was at the police office before three, having gone from the depot to the house, then back to the depot to consult with friends, then to the police office, a distance of a dozen squares or more, He admitted having told some friends he had premonition of the woman's death, having, while sick at Savanna the Sunday previous, dreamed of seeing Annie lying dead. Allen was very much taken up with the woman, having Bent her money, addressed her as wife, and planned to marry her and go to Washington territory. Whether she was working him for money or in earnest, of course, cannot be known. Dr. Menquendt, city phy sician, was the second important wit ness. He made the post mortem and found fumes of ether in the brain cavity. The kidneys were congested, but other-, wise all the orgnns were healthy. The defense sought to show that the breath of a confirmed inebriate emits ethereal fumes, which witness admitted, but said it was sulphuric ether he found in the post mortem, which was a different matter. Counsel also endeavored to put in evidence letters from eminent physi cians to show that ether in the body can only be determined by chemical analysis, and asked witness if he pre sumed to set up his judgment against such high authority. It was further brought out that the constituent parts of kerosene, ether and alcohol were the same, the point being that it would be impossible to distinguish between them. The doctor was still on the stand when court adjourned. Something Worth Having. Special to the Globe.

His Condition Is Improving and the Doctors Are Encouraged. The Senate Passes a Bill '■ Raising His Rank. He Is the Fourth General of the United States Army. Washington, May 29.— There was an air of cheerfulness about the members of the Sheridan household this morning that indicated better than words that there had been a decided change for the better in the sick soldier's condition. The first intelligence of his condition came from Col. Blunt, who remained at the house all night. He left it about 6:30 o'clock to go home for breakfast, and as he passed the news paper men in waiting, said that the general had a very comfortable night and that one of the physicians told him a few minutes before that the general was doing splendid. "Everything seems to be more favorable now," said Col. Blunt, "and Mrs. Sheridan and all of us feel much encouraged. But then you know the disease is still there and no one can tell what may happen." Col. Kellogg relieved Col. Blunt, an d after spending some little time in the house with the physicians and members of the family, appeared on the front porch about 8 o'clock and conversed freely about the case. "The general slept well during the night," said he, "and now appears to be much refreshed. His sleep was natural and restful, and not caused by narcotics of any kind. His respiration also . was easier and more natural, and there was no occa- , sion to resort to oxygen treatment at all. This compressed oxygen gas has worked wonders in this case, and the general's remarkable rally from his severe sink ing spell of yesterday morning is at tributed by many of us to its agency." Dr. Yarrow passed out of the door while Col. Kellogg was talking, and confirmed his statements that no arti ficial means were used during the night to induce slumber or to assist breath ing. There were the usual number of callers during the morning, and the at tendants at the door seemed to take special pleasure in dilating on the gen- ( eral's condition. .-_;•-_.'' - One of the prettiest sights of the morning was when the general's three j girls stopped in the midst of their play on the beautiful lawn surrounding the house and gathered some flowers to be . sent to their afflicted father. ;,;-;_. . The physicians met in consultation about 8 o'clock, and prepared the bulle tin announcing the continued improve ment of their patient since the favorable turn indicated in the bulletin issued last evening. At 11:45 a. m., it was re ported from the sick chamber that the favorable condition indicated in the morning bulletin had been fully main tained; indeed, not an unfavorable symp tom or condition have appeared since the change for the better noted in the 8:80 bulletin of last night. The general sleeps at intervals without artificial aid, not a trace of the recurrence of the oedema has so far made its appearance, and, all things considered, the general is confidently believed by his attending physicians *"T --TO BE REALLY BETTER. The following bulletin was issued at 8:30 p.m.: ' Gen. Sheridan's condition to-day has been satisfactory. His pulse, respira tion, vigor of mind and body have im proved. . His sleep has been more nor mal and restful, and his natural func tions are nearer the line of health. The diet of the general . has been changed somewhat from the scanty variety of nourishment heretofore allowed him. He was given some beef juice obtained by press ing a steak. He laughed when it was given him and said: "It's a pity to spoil that steak for this. Iliad rather get the juice out between mv teeth." To this the doctor replied: ".Well, you • shall, general, before the week ends, if you climb up like this." An intimate friend of Gen. Sheridan said to-night that the general's mother a number of years ago had an attack very similar in its character to that which has .prostrated the general. The progress the disease was much the same, it is said, as in Gen. Sheridan's case. She recovered and is now alive and in her ninetieth year. HE IS DOING SPLENDIDLY. Washington, May 30—2 a. m.— Mrs. Sheridan and the other members of the family are asleep, as are also all the physicians except Dr. Mathews, who will remain on duty until re lieved. Col.. Kellogg came to the door, and in response to an Associated Press reporter's inquiry said : "The general is doing splendidly, and continues to improve. He sleeps a > eraat deal, and it is perfectly natural ■ slumber. No narcotics have been given him for two days; the use of digitalis has been suspended, and oxygen is no longer administered. There has been no recurrence of the heart's failure for three days, and the heart is again beat ing well." An electrical storm passed over the city about 11 o'clock, and it was feared . it might have a bad effect on the gen eral, but he slept along quietly through it until awakened by the loud rumbling of a passing wagon. The 1 o'clock bul letin reads: May 30.— Gen, Sheridan is ; sleeping quietly. No changes to chron icle. RISES IN RANK. Sheridan is Now General of the Army. Washington, May 29.— the senate to-day Mr. Anderson, from the commit tee on military affairs, reported the bill to revive the grade of general of the United States array. He said that its purpose was to revive during the life time of the present lieutenant general of the army the grade of general of the array. Both those grades were to Cease with the life of Lieut. Gen. Sheridan. He would not take up time in referring to the occasion which made the bill a proper one for immediate consideration: and he therefore asked unanimous consent to have the bill now considered. Mr. Berry, objected and the bill* was placed on the calendar. At the close of the afternoon recess the " bill was again taken up on motion of Mr. Manderson, who moved its passage. Mr. Berry said he had objected to its' consideration because he believed that f the bill should not pass. He did not be lieve this a proper time to legislate on the subject. He thought that the judg ment and reason of congress, not its sympathy, should be appealed to in leg islation. It appeared to him that the only object of the bill was to give $3,000 more pay to the lieutenant general than he was receiving. He demanded the ye \r a l nays on its passage. sw. Sanderson said he could not sit silent after the suggestion of the sena tor of Arkansas, that the sole purpose of tne bill was to give increased pay to the lieutenant general of the army. If that was its purpose he would not have pressed it, nor would -the committee on military affairs have authorized him to .r P ° _ ii , ' nor would the senate pass it. we. did not need to refer to the dis tinguished career of Lieut.

This distinguished honor (conferred by the continental congress on Gen. Washington, and by the congress of the United States upon Gens. Grant and Sherman) should very properly be conferred by an appreciat ive people in recognition of the great services of Lieut-Gen. Sheridan and of nis distinguished career since the war closed. The bill was not urged at this time on the ground of sympathy, but on the ground of Gen. Sheridan's high de serts and of a proper appreciation of his service to the American oeople. The bill was passed—yeas 34," nays 7, the negative votes being given by Senators .Berry, Coke, Harris, Reagan, Salisbury, -Vance and Wilson, of Maryland. r THANKS TO MANDERSON.

A Preliminary Meeting* Dis cusses the Annual Report of the Trustees, In Which the Recent Labor Troubles Are Treated at Length. A Social Reception for Mutual Acquaintance Held Last Evening. A substantial-looking body of men trooping through the streets of the Saintly City yesterday, in groups of threes and upwards, taking in all the sights and evidences of prosperity on every hand, naturally attracted atten tion, aside from the fact that they were decorated- with large gold and silk badges. They were delegates to the convention of brewers of the United States, who came to hold their twenty eighth annual meeting for the first time in the Northwest, about which they had heard so much. Headquarters were established at the Merchants hotel, where a reception com mittee from the local brewers' associa tion was untiring in its efforts to pro mote the comfort of their guests.

During yesterday afternoon the mem bers of the board of trustees of the association held a private conference in the parlors of President Miles at the Ryan, and the time was consumed in discussing the report which will be submitted to the convention to-day for ratification or rejection. In the opening paragraph of the re port prominence is accorded by the trustees to what they term the most important and far-reaching occurrence to the trade that has taken place for many years, namely, the prohibi tion decision of the United States supreme court, growing but of the Mugler case, the defense of which was assumed by the association in ISS3. Senator Vest closed the case with an ar- - gument before the United States su preme court, and a proposition was sub mitted by a delegation of Western mem bers to bring a new case before the court and solicit a postponement of the final consideration of that against Mug ler. This motion was opposed by Sena tor Vest, he being of the opinion that the Mugler suit possessed the ' essen tial features of a good test case. Unwilling to assume the responsibility of interfering with the counsel's pro gramme, the trustees allowed final argu ment to be made, fully determined, however, to spare no efforts to have other prohibitory suits then pending properly defended, and amqpg these was the case of The State of Kansas vs. Her man Zeibold et al. Neither the masterly argument of Hon. Joseph H. Choate on the Zeibold case, nor the summary which Senator Vest— the brewers of St. Louis had re-engaged— on the occa sion of the hearing in the Zeibold case, had any effect upon the minds of the majority of the supreme court judges, for not only did the latter sustain the famous decision rendered by the same tribunal in 1847, conceding the states of the Union the right and power to re strain the liquor traffic in its entirety, to the point of utter prohibition, but they even went so far as to repudiate the claim upheld made by a lower court, that the state must indemnify THOSE CITIZENS whose property — . and utilized under the protection and with the sanc tion of the law— destroyed by reason of an exercise of the right and power thus conceded to the-states. . The hopes of the members of our trade rested upon this claim : a claim which natural jus tice—a thing that sometimes appears to be essentially different from the justice administered in courts of shows to be unassailable, since the property destroyed, ostensibly for. the com mon welfare, ; cannot .in . any sense be classed as a nuisance; and even if that were possible it would not in - this instance relieve the state from the ob ligation of indemnifying the owner, be cause the passage of the prohibitory law, the constitutionality of which is based upon the right of states to abate nuisances and forbid all things destruc tive of public morals and public pros perity, the very same states here in question, not only sanctioned brewing as a legitimate and lawful. business and; derived revenue from it, but 7 even in vited .brewers and vintners to settle within their borders. While this decision, so far as the prin cipal questions are concerned, may be in accordance with the spirit of the con-" stitution, as interpreted by a majority of the supreme court judges.it certainly is not founded on facts, nor supported by truth, so far as at least one essential feature of it is concerned, for the su preme court does not only vindicate the right of the state to prohibit a nuisance, but it attempts to prove that the indus try to which the decision relates is a nuisance, and this it does in the follow ing words. "There is here no justification for holding that the state, under the guise merely of police regulations, is aiming to deprive the citizen of his constitu tional right, for we cannot shut out of view the fact, within the knowledge of all. that the public health, the public morals and the public safety may be en dangered by the general use of intoxi cating drinks; nor can we ignore the fact, established by statistics accessible to every one, that the disorder, pauper ism and crime prevalent in the country are in large measure directly traceable to this evil." That such a decision could not but stimulate the ACTIVITY of THE PROHIBITIONISTS need not be stated; it is worthy of note, however, that it exercised a similar in fluence upon the brewers of the coun try, for at no time in the history of this association have its members manifested so lively an interest in affairs pertaining to their common welfare as they showed immediately after the publication of this decision. This does not apply to the brewers of the states directly con- : cerned ; but even there the despondency brought about by the unfavorable out come of the two lawsuits in question has been somewhat dispelled by it. THE LABOR TROUBLES. Trustees in Their Report Discuss the Recent Strikes. "By reason of an entirely unexpected change of policy inaugurated by the leaders of our workmen's unions, both national and local, the brewers of many cities experienced great difficulty in dealing with their employes and sus tained severe losses ou account of un justifiable interferences on the part of brewery workmen's unions," the trustees say. Those who favored negotiations with unions and even helped to strengthen the latter, did not dream that these unions would be used against the will and in clination of a majority of the members for the perpetration of unlawful actions, for the propagation of anarchical ideas for the complete enslavement of em ployer and employe. The attempt to dictate to Milwaukee brewers where they should os should not buy their ma terial was but the beginning of a pre concerted plan by which it was intended to so hamper and harass the employers as to make it impossible for them to conduct business in the usual legiti mate way. The refusal of the Milwau kee brewers to submit to so despotic a demand was followed first by a strike, and next by a boycott, both insti gated and supported by the brewery workmen's national and local unions, in spite of the fact that the employers conscientiously observed the stipula tions of the contracts with their em ployes. As in the Ehret boycott so here, too, the attitude of the employes demonstrated the utter uselessness of negotiating and entering into contracts with unions who, at the will or whim of their leaders, j>penly violate any and all agreements made with them without the slightest cause or provocation. It also demonstrated the necessity of i^i .'-""' GOING A STEP FURTHER than was contemplated by the framers of the St. Louis resolution of non-inter ference, obligating the signers. thereof to abstain from furnishing beer to the customers of brewers whose business suffered under the influence of unlaw ful actions. Not until their own men ostentatiously took an active part in the boycott upon their own product, did the employing brewers of Milwaukee declare that they would no longer recognize the work men's local and national union. They were fully conscious of the consequences of such a declaration, and at once ap peal to your trustees for the strictest en forcement of the policy of non-inter ference. Before this had occurred, however, many brewers throughout the land called for a national meet ing of representative men, in order to discuss the situation and devise means of mutual protection. A meet ing was held in the city of New York in the month of December, which the most prominent men of our trade throughout the land attended, either as delegates of local associations, or as representatives of localities. Every local association and nearly all of . the more important cities were represented. The unani mous opinion of those present was that the action of the Milwaukee brew ers, in refusing to submit to the demand in question, should be approved, as it was really the only course they could have adopted in the face of the fact that there, as every where, the unions of workmen were being controlled by irresponsible per sons, many of whom are not yet citizens of this country, while nearly all of them advocate anarchism; by persons who live by the strife which they succeed in stirring up, and who, by terrorizing and intimidating their followers, compel obedience to any dictate they may promulgate. In the meantime the ostentatious en forcement of the boycott of the journey men brewers of Milwaukee had taken place and a circular was issued Feb. 1, 1888, enjoining on members of this as sociation strictest compliance with the policy of non-interference. While a resolution refusing to renew contracts had been signed by the greater portion of the local associations, by a majority of individual members of this organiza tion and by many outside brewers, an other conference of delegates was held at New York, March 26, 1888, at which an address to the public was formulated and spread broad cast. Thus far the RESULT OF THE LABOR RESOLUTION has been entirely favorable. The work men have in every instance been assured that, if they choose to remain in their places, they would receive the same wages as before and would be treated in every way in accordance with their own demands, as stipulated in previous con tracts. The declaration that no agree ments would be made with unions, did not and does not prevent the workmen from entering into agreements with their employers individually, nor does it en join upon them severance of their con nection with their unions. If, in spite of all ; this, they elect to insist upon the renewal of union contracts, they must evidently be misled by motives other than a regard for their own and their families' welfare, seeing that a union contract wilj secure . to them, individ ually, no advantages which they do not possess now. In ' many cities the workmen have followed the example of their fellow craftsmen in St. Louis, who, without insisting upon a renewal of their* union contract, re mained in their places and appear to be satisfied with the present arrangement. In New York/Brooklyn, Chicago, New ark, Jersey City, Buffalo and Albany the workmen pursued a different course. - In the two former cities the publication of the resolu tion ' was followed by the imposition of boycotts upon eight of the signing brewers in New York, Brooklyn and . Newark. From the attitude of the brew ers of New York, Brooklyn, Boston, Mi lwaukee, Chicago, Cincinnati, St. Louis, San Francisco and other cities, it is to Continued on Second Page* A TRADESMAN'S TESTIMONY.

Blame's Declination From Florence Had No String Attached. He Reiterates His Statement That He Is a Politi cal Corpse, That Is, He Will Not Accept the Republican Nor n• ination. This Leaves the Field Clear to Scramble for the Empty Honor. New Yon May 30.— The Tribune of to-day publishes the following letter from Mr. Blame: Paris, May 17.— "Whit-law Reid, Esq., Editor New York Tribune— dear sir: Since my return to Paris from Southern Italy on the Bth inst., I have learned (what I did not before believe) that my name may yet be presented to the National convention as a candidate for the presidential nomination of the Republican party. A single phrase of my letter of Jan. 25 from Florence (which was decisive of everything I had the personal power to decide) has been treated by many of my most valued friends as not absolutely conclusive in ultimate, and possible contingencies. On the other hand, friends equally de voted and disinterested have construed my letter (as it should be construed) to be an unconditional withholding of my name from the national convention. They have, in consequence, given their support to eminent gentlemen who are candidates for the Chicago convention, some of whom would not, I am sure, have consented to assume that position if 1 had desired to represent the party in the presidential contest of 1888. If I should j now, by speech or silence, by commis sion or omission, permit my name, in any event, to come before the conven tion 1 should incur the reproach of being uncandid with those who have always been candid with me. I speak, therefore, because I am not willing to remain in a doubtful attitude. lam not willing to be the cause of mislead ing a single man among the millions . who have given me their suffrages and confidence. 1 am not willing that' even one of my faithful' supporters in the past should think me capable of paltering in a double sense with my words. As suming that the presidential nomina tion could by any possible chance be offered to me, I could not accept it with out leaving in the minds of thousands of these men the impression that 1 had not been free from indirection, and, therefore, I could not accept it at all. The niisrepresentations of malice have no weight, but the just displeasure of friends I could not patiently endure. Republican victory, the prospects of which grow brighter every day, can be imperiled only by lack of unity in council or by acrimonious contest overmen. The issue of protection is incalculably stronger and greater than any man, for it concerns the pros perity of the present and of generations yet to come. Were it possible for every voter of the republic to see for himself the condition and recompense of labor in Europe, the party of free trade in the United States would not receive the support of one wage-worker between the two oceans. It may not be directly in our power as philanthropists to ele vate the European laborer, but it will be a lasting stigma upon our statesmanship if we permit the American laborer to be forced down to the European level. And in the end the rewards of labor everywhere will be advanced, if we steadily refuse to lower the standard at home. Yours very sincerely, .;-*: James G. Blame. _■ NONE NEED TO MOVE. Chicago Saloonists Can Continue to Do Business at Their Old Stands. Chicago, May 29.— The bitter strug gle which has been going on for some time over the question of locating sa loons near churches and schools, and placing restrictions on Sunday traffic, culminated last night in the adoption by the city council of an ordinance which the anti-saloonists have opposed from the start. It provides that no license shall be granted to keep a saloon not already, located within 200 feet of a church or school, or in residence blocks, without the consent of two-thirds of the property owners in the block. This does not change the status of any of the saloons at present objected to, whereas the antis had cherished hopes of securing an ordinance which would compel over 200 to seek new locations. The Sunday closing provision of the pew ordinance is to the effect that sa loons must provide blinds, shutters or curtains to obstruct the view from the street on that day.
