We denounce the present tariff, levied upon nearly 4,000 articles, as a master piece of injustice, inequality and false pretense. It yields a dwindling, not a yearly rising revenue. It has impov erished many industries to subsidize a few. It prohibits imports that might purchase the products of American labor. It has degraded American com merce from the first to an inferior rank on the high seas. It has cut down the sales of American manufactures at home and abroad, and depleted the returns of American agriculture — an industry fol lowed by half our people. It costs the people five times more than it produces to the treasury, obstructs the processes of production "and wastes the fruits of labor. It promotes fraud and fosters smuggling, enriches dishonest officials and bankrupts honest merchants. We demand that all custom house taxation shall be only for revenue. [From the National Democratic Platform of 18S0.] A tariff tor revenue only. [From the National Democratic Platform, 133-I.] Unnecessary taxation is unjust taxa tion. * * * The Democratic party is pledged to revise the tariff in a spirit of fairness to all interests. Sufficient revenue to pay all the ex penses of the federal government, eco nomically administered, including pen sions, interest and principal of the pub lic debt, can be got under our present system of taxation, from custom house taxes on fewer imported articles, bear ing heaviest on articles of luxury, and bearing lightest on articles of necessity. We therefore denounce the abuses of the existing tariff, and, subject to the preceding limitations, we demand that federal taxation shall be exclusively for public purposes, and shall not exceed the needs of the government economic ally administered. From President Cleveland's Annual Message, Pec. 0. The simple and plain duty which we owe the people is to reduce taxation to the necessary expenses of an econom ical operation of the government and to restore to the business of the country the money Which we hold in the treas ary through the per version of govern mental powers. These things can and should be done with safety to all our industries, without danger to the op portunity for remunerative labor which bur workingmeh need, and with benefit » them all and all our people, by cheap ening their means of subsistence and Increasing the measure of their com forts.

The Minnesota delegates should in vite their confreres to come up and see what an excellent place St. Paul would be for holding the next convention. The ice has not yet bioken in Lake Winnipeg. Perhaps the Winnipegers are attempting to work a summer re sort advertisement upon the press of the country.. St. Paul has extended an invitation to the German Lutherans to locate their new seminary here. Where could a more appropriate place for a church seminary be found? NORTHWESTERN SCHOOLS. The approach of the time for the clos ing of the schools for the summer holi day and the preparations which are making for commencement call atten tion to the fact that this has been an ex ceedingly successful year in North western schools. Not only has a larger number of students been enrolled dur ing the past year than ever before, but the standard of instruction and scholar ship has been raised to a point never be . fore reached. V.--v In keeping with the progress which has marked every other department of Northwestern life, the schools have steadily increased their efficiency and now deservedly rank with any in the country. In both public and pri vate schools, in primary and ad vanced institutions, has the same degree of excellence and consistent prog ress been maintained. This is, of course, due to the harmonious co-opera tion of teachers and taught, for in the West as in no other section of the coun try, save perhaps New England, do the youth of the land realize the practical value and necessity of a thorough edu cation.' It is because of these good re sults, and of their promise for the future, that the present commencement season in the Northwest is especially note worthy. The Northwest has many things to be proud of, but in nothing can she justly take more pride than in her schools. -*-»i ST. LOUIS CONVENTION. To-day the Democratic clans will have gathered at St. Louis, and all the pre liminary work for the convention will be completed. There has never been a national convention the assembling of which produced less excitement than the one that will open in St. Louis to-mor row. With the possible exception of the convention which nominated (Jen. GiL-jiT for the second term, there has never been a convention whose results were so definitely settled in advance as this one. Both the candidate and the platform were fixed in the public mind even before the call for the convention was issued. Some littie interest attaches to filling the second place on the ticket, but even this will not arouse public curiosity to a very high pitch. It is a matter of but little consequence who is nominated for vice president. Let it be Thukman or Gray or Stevenson or Black whose name may grace the ticket, the main point will have been carried when Groyeh Cleveland is renominated for president, and tariff re form is made the chief plank in the platform. The St. Louis convention will differ materially from the Democratic conven tion at Chicago four years ago in one re spect. In glancing over the list of del egates to the St. Louis convention it is observable that comparatively few of the names of the old-time leaders appear on the rolls. The list is principally made up of new, men, or at least men who have never had national prominence. The convention at Chicago four years ago was a congregation of intellectual giants who had gained national fame as party leaders. It was a convention without precedent in American politics.so far as the ability and prominence of its mem bers were concerned. The causes which called forth this outpouring of great party leaders at Chicago four years ago do not exist at St. Louis to-day. De mocracy has triumphed, and the old warriors feel that their mission is ac complished. The management of the party has been turned over to the younger soldiers, many of whom will win their first laurels at St. Louis. It is an encouraging indication of the progressive condition of the national Democracy to observe this infusion of young blood. It bodes well for the fut ure success of the party, and is addi tional assurance that President Cleve, land intends to surround himself with advisers who are in thorough sympathy with the progress of the age. «*» ILLINOIS. It is worthy of comment that in the election figuriiiff that is being done this year Illinois is being classed as one of the doubtful states; something that hasn't been done for nearly thirty years. Heretofore the Republicans have counted on Illinois in a presidential contest as reliably as they have on Penn sylvania or Kansas, and the Democrats never questioned their claim. This year it is different, and there are good rea sons for it. Naturally Illinois belongs in the Dem ocratic column. Her vast agricultural interests make her so. and the only reason she has not taken her proper place in line with the anti-monopoly and anti-protective forces long ago was because of John A. Logan's influence iv Illinois politics. The Republican leaders realize that the death of Gen. Logan sundered the strongest cord that held Illinois to the Republican party. They likewise realize that by natural .gravitation the state will go Democratic this year unless the Repub lican party can make a change of base and occupy Democratic ground. Hence the vigorous effort that is being made by the Illinois politicians to push Gresham for the presidency. Tlie fact is that Judge Gresham is more of a Democrat to-day than a Republican. He is in accord with President Cleveland's low tariff and anti-mo nopoly views, and it is asserted by those most intimately acquainted with him that if he is nominated at Chicago on a protection platform, such as Mr. Blame advocates, he will promptly decline the nomination. If Gresham is nominated on a platform of his own construction the Republicans may save Illinois, but in doing so they will lose the manu facturing states of the East. Unless Gee-ham is nominated Illinois is just about as safe for the Democrats as Ken tucky or Texas. "STATESMAN" SHERMAN. If some one would only force upon Candidate Sherman the conclusion that the war is over, and that this is a government not for the South hut for the entire Union, he would be doing the country a service. It seems to be the special province of the peculiar school of "statesmanship"' of which Sherman is the most shining light to keep alive in every way possible the fires of sec tional feeling. Belonging to a by-gone political era. Sherman has never been able to realize that a new generation has grown up and is taking a part in the administra tion of national affairs— a generation which, unlike Sherman, is willing to let the dead past bury its dead, and which is content to busy itself with the affairs of the present. Sherman, in short, in his proper per son illustrates the politician as distin guished from the statesman. A notable instance of his predominating trait was given in the senate a few days ago, when, after the most approved style of Sherman statesmanship, he denounced the president for vetoing an extravagant appropriation for a public building in a small Pennsylvania town, and declared that, had the appropriation been for a Southern town, the president would not have dared oppose it. There now comes to hand, very ap propriately given, the lie to Sherman's assertion— a veto from the president dis approving of a bill appropriating $100, --000 for the erection of a public building at Columbus, Ga. But perhaps Sher man will declare that this is not a Southern town. As yet he has discreet ly kept silent upon the subject, but his sophistry has in the past gone to even more absurd lengths. In some respects Candidate Sherman makes us very tired. RED TAPE FOLLY. There is a good deal of red tape fool ishness, but nowhere is it more conspic uously ridiculous than in the postoffice department. During the big blizzard in the East last March a mail carrier in a New Hampshire city who had/a beat on the outskirts of the town was caught in the storm and lost his way. After crawling through snowdrifts on his hands and knees for several hours, and nearly perishing from the cold.he finally THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 4, 1888. struck a habitation, where he found refuge from the storm. The Washing ton authorities fined him $1.40 for the delay in delivering the mails. A GROWING BOOM. The Tiiirman boom has got such an impetus the managers of . the St. Louis convention may have hard work to keep it from getting away from them and landing the old Roman at the head of the ticket. Thukman is a tolerably big man in the estimation of the average American citizen, and the older he gets the bigger he seems to grow. Ever since the railroad and Stand ard oil influences combined to drive him out of the senate the great body of the people have been longing for an opportunity to square the old man. -^ SHERIDAN NO BETTER. And His Physicians Fear He May Be Forced to Succumb. Washington, June 3.— After a day during which he showed quite an im provement in health. Gen. Sheridan's condition this morning this morning is again not favorable, and grave appre hensions are felt lest he should have an other alarming attack of heart and lune trouble. There has vfi been no recurrence of the hevtflt&ubles, but there have been chan<jr» tv his pulse, respiration and teiuMWfrre since 8 p. m. such as have been on one or two occasions premonitory symptoms of dangerous attacks. Prompt measures were taken to prevent the recur rence of the trouble, and it is hoped they may be warded off. The tendency of the trouble to recur is discouraging to the physicians and a constant source of alarm "to the family, and shows that although a considerable period may elapse between at tacks, yet their return is al ways to be dreaded. The general is very weak and no stronger, if indeed quite as strong as before the last at tack. Each attack heretofore has been worse than the preceding one, and it is feared the general may finally become so weak as to be forced to succumb. At 2:30 Gen. Sheridan is reported resting comfortably, with little or no change in his condition since midnight. Doctor Pepper, of Philadelphia, has been sent for again. He left Philadel phia at midnight, and will have a con sultation with the general's physicians early in the morning. Washington, June — i a. m.— Gen. Sheridan does not seem to rest well and has had a couple attacks of coughing since the last bulletin. GOULD VERY ILL. The Railway Magnate Not Ex pected to Live Two Months. v Kansas City, June 3.— Goud is undoubtedly a very sick man. Every effort is being made to keep his true condition from the public and the re sult is that very conflicting reports are being sent out. The result of a careful investigation justifies the asser tion that Mr. Gould is dangerously ill. The Gould party returned to this city from Omaha last Friday morning .p-ith the express intention of returning "at once to New York. At the union depot he was seen by several who are familiar with his face, and all agreed that he is very worn and haggard-look ing. When the train aimed, Dr. Munn went to a drug store and got a prescrip tion filled. He stated that Mr. Gould was suffering from brain and stomach troubles and was -afflicted with in somnia, which had been wing worse ever since he left New York on Thurs day night. He could not sleep at all until about 4 o'clock, when he fell into a fitful doze. A consultation w as held by Drs. Munn and Outten, and it was decided that it was best to go to Colorado instead of returning home, in the hope that several days of the mountain air would be beneficial to the patient. The train arrived at Council Grove, Kan., at sundown, and was side tracked in order that Mr. Gould's night's rest might not be broken. The party left late in the morning and spent Saturday night at Greeley, on the western bor der of Kansas. This morning they started for Pueblo, reaching there late this evening. .A vices from all points along the line show that there has been no improvement and that there has been an accession of nervousness. An old acquaintance, who had seen Mr. Gould while at the union depot, said that it was his belief that, he could not live two months, as he had nover seen such a breaking down as was shown on every feature of Mr. Gould. A BAD ONE CAPTURED. An Early Arrival at St. Louis Taken In. ' St. Louis, June 3.— Peter F. Quinn, alias Frank Gilmore, was arrested here yesterday by Detective Erskine, who has been following him for several months. Quinn is alleged to have em bezzled ?12,000 from C. G. Dickson, a prominent contractor of Pittsburg, Pa., while employed as confidential clerk. The fugitive had been traced to Cali fornia, where the detective lost him and abandoned the search, (in Friday, Quinn was recognized among the a re convention arrivals, and was shadowed until Mr. Dickson appeared in reply to a telegram, and identified Iris late clerk, who was arrested and sent back to Pittsburg without the formality of a requisition. *i»> Hon. D. T. Bramble Dying. Special to the Globe. Watektown, Dak.. June 3.— Hon. D. T. Bramble, receiver of the land office here, is very seriously ill from the ef fects of a second stioke of paralysis he had a few weeks since. The host of friends Mr. Bramble has made during a residence of many years in the Terri tory will be pained to learn of his sad condition. The latest report is that he is just alive. *"** THE MAN IN THE CASE. Since woman was created there has been an awful stir About the port she plays on earth— all blame is laid on her. Let any wickedness be done, at any time or Qlace, And saints aud sinners do declare, "A woman in the case !"' Some fool to suicide inclined blows out his little brain, '•Now. mark my word— a woman!" every prophet will exclaim. Or if some fool another fool dispatches from this life. It's significantly mentioned, "He has a pretty wife.*' . ~ If a man, a thief by nature, steals Ins em ployer blind, And goes alone to Canada, the girl was "left behind." Or if he's seen a-talking with the woman on the way, "The woman in the case goe3, too,'" the daily papers say. "Now this thing makes us women all too miser ably feel. But for our dire existence, men would never kill nor steal; In fact, if Eve to Adam the Lord had never given. This earth had so continued a suburban sort of heaven. It occurs to me, however, from another point of view, Had we ne'er been given Adam, we could •have a heaven, too. If the world were only women, we could keep it free from crime. For doesn't the "old Adam" work the mis chief every time; ..-'- It was Eve who gave the apple that has brought us all our woe; But with no one there to take it, she could . never have done so. Though men will kill and steal for us, be cause we are so dear. You should mind they fix our value by their own existence here. When you come to think it over, one con clusion's very sure, Had they never been created we would ne'er have sought to lure Their poor souls from paths of virtue ; they from blame are not exempt Dc we lead them to temptation, they have tempted us to tempt. With this new light on the subject, rather . singular it seems; But instead it's plainly plural; in reality it means. When the blame for any action to its foun tain head you trace, lou will ever tiud a woman and a man are iv the case. —Flora McDonald. DEATH ONTHE RAIL Young: Griffin, of St. Paul, Killed in a Railway Acci dent at Anoka. - -^ Four Men Imprisoned in the St. Lawrence Mine at Butte, Mont. The, Call Newspaper Office Completely Burned Out ! at Winnipeg . Two Persons Drowned at Du luth—A Big- Storm in • Arkansas. Special to the Globe. • ; ; Anoka, Minn., June 3.— The quiet Sabbath was distuibed by a bad acci dent, in which John Griffin, son of Michael Griffin, of St. Paul, was in stantly killed by being thrown from a work train on the Manitoba road at noon, his head striking a tie on the Northern Pacific track with sufficient force to break off the end of the tie. He was aged about twenty and unmarried. James Veitullo, an Italian, had his col lar bone and leg broken; John Burke and Ole Forest, serious wounds on the head: Peter Naughton and Emil Thorn had their ankles sprained; Walter Cone and Charles Locke were injured about the knees. It seems they are replacing the rails on the Manitoba crack, and last night every other spike was re moved. When the work train, coming along at a speed of fifteen or twenty miles an hour, struck this portion of the track the rails spread andtiie wheels ran off on the ties and several of the men were thrown off with the above re sult. There were about seventy men on board the engine, fiat car and ca boose. The injured were cared for by Drs. Giddings, Aldrieh and Marquis. A special train with Supt. Rice and Dr. Murphy came up from St. Paul this aft ernoon to visit the scene of the acci dent and take the wounded men down to the hospital at St. Paul. Coroner Sherman will hold an inquest to-morrow forenoon over the body of Griffin, and, if possible, develop the facts in the case. FOUR UNACCOUNTED FOR. A Cave-in at the St. Lawrence Mine, Butte. Special to the Globe. Butte, Mont., June 3. T0-day at a few minutes to 12 o'clock, noon, a large cave-in occurred in the St. Lawrence mine, commencing at the 500-foot level on the hanging wall and letting in the mountain clean up to the 200-foot leyel. Thirty men had come out at 10 o'clock on account of the squeeze and the balance of the men came out a few minutes before the cave. It was found when the roll was called that four men were missing, viz: Pat Harrington, Con Murphy and two men who had commenced to work. Men are now at work from the Anaconda mine and going to the relief of the. entombed miners. The latest from the; mine is that two of the men have given signals with hammers on the walls, which are heard by those who are dig ging through the cave-in. Whether , they can rescue them in the next twenty-four hours is hard to say. The St. Lawrence is one of the largest cop per mines in the city and employs 600 men. K-.. I A Newspaper Burned Out. Special to the Globe. Winnipeg, June 3.— The Call build ing was completely destroyed by fire this morning and a §25,000 newspaper and job printing plant totally .destroyed.! The origin of the fire is a complete mys tery. Before the brigade was notified the building was a mass of flames, and no effort was made to save it. The loss on the building will be $15,000. The newspaper plant is insured for $21,000 and the building for $5,000. The paper will be published in the Sun office till other arrangements are made. DROWNED AT DULUTH. Two of a Boating Party of Four Drowned at Duluth. Special to the Globe. Duluth, Minn., June Duluth's first drowning of the season occurred here at 7:30 this evening. Frank May nell, who came here about two weeks ago to take a position in the pool room of George Langdon, and J.W. Tonguey, a sporting character of the town, were out sailing with Minnie Schoemaker and Frankie Haven, two women of the town, when their boat was overturned while Maynell and Minnie were chang ing positions, and both the latter were drowned. Maynell came from Chjggo, was about thirty years of age, and Heaves a father, mother and several brothers there. His body has not yet been recov ered. The girl also came from Chicago a short time ago, but no one here was able to give any of her former history. Her body was recovered after it lrad been in the water but a short time, but life was extinct. The Mapleton Fire. Special to the Globe. Fas-go, Dak., June 3.— Twenty fire men responded to the call for assistance from Mapleton last night. As evidence of the promptness with which the c ill was answered, it is stated that word was received from Mapleton at 12:05. An alarm was immediately sounded, and the train bearing the firemen with the apparatus left the yard at once, and arrived at Mapleton at 12:50, forty-five minutes from the time call was made the fire department was at work, and on arrival the depot was in flames with the telegraph poles between the same and the burning elevator. Connection was made to a pump on the engine of the '"special." The depot and two warehouses of the Northern Pacific were saved, together with a number of tons of cool belonging to the company. In the elevator burned was a large quantity of grain, which was saved, but in a condition good only for feed. Seven Reported Killed, i \«m"< Kansas City, June 3.— A Times special says that a furious storm swept over Washington county, Arkansas, yesterday, causing much loss of life' and property.

No loss given" m» ONE WAY TO DO IT. How Families Can Be Supported on a Small Sum. . Boston Journal. The possibility of the support, of a man with a wife and two children upon $7.50 per week has met with much ques tioning since the statement was made that the problem had been solved, but an interesting experiment in New York has demonstrated the utmost achieve ment of economy within the prescribed limit. For a family of four the rent was $1 per week, fuel 50 cents and lighting 12 cents. The food expenses were compressed to $2.48 per week by the most careful management. A bill of fare • contained two stews for four square meals, each made of 10 cents' worth of meat and bones, a handful of rice and flour worth 1 cent and a little salt aud pepper. Each stew eaten with bread served for the next meal in a warmed-over condition. Four more of the principal meals were pro vided from fried salt pork at a cost of 14; boiled beans furnished two meals for UK cents; a pot roast of beef, three pounds, 36 cents, and five cents 'worth of potatoes made.a royal dinner. Bread and molasses formed the luncheon in the middle of the day at a cost of 35 cents, making the total expenses for food during the week, $2.48. Comfort able clothing was provided at $2.50 per week, and it is said that even with the addition of a few luxuries of food the family were able to deposit $78 in the savings bank during the year. Whether the story adequately fulfills the conditions for a wholesome living may be perhaps questioned, since nothing is provided for the "wear and and tear" in every household, but it is useful as an illustration of economy. Scientists have decided that the aver age workingman requires daily in his food not less than four ounces of pro teins, two ounces of fat and eighteen ounces of carbohydrates. Bread, oatmeal, milk, sugar, potatoes, beans and lard at a cost 12% cents will supply all the food ab solutely required by one per son for living. At the increased ex pense of 19.36 cents, more elaborate diet can be made with 20 ounces bread, 2 ounces codfish, 2 ounces lard, 16 ounces potatoes, 1 pint milk, 1 ounce sugar and 3 cups tea. As food is the most expen sive factor of living, it is capable of the most intelligent selection and depends more upon individual taste and judg- ! ment than on other conditions of life, since rent and clothes are fixed more for extraneous circumstances and less yielding to choice. The intelligent workingman gains by a careful study of a bill of fare. It is useful for him to know that among vegetable foods in common use, oatmeal, beans and pota toes are the cheapest, that one of the greatest dietary needs of the working man is a sufficient supply of an inex pensive, wholesome fat, and that cheap meats may be as nutritious as costly cuts. The prevention of waste by judicious cooking is an important matter for the consideration of the workingman in which he can be helped by his wife's ■carefulness. It would be difficult ' to estimate the amount of waste io American kitchens caused by igno rance of the true value of food, but it is known to be necessarily large. The ! average workman is not ready to be convinced that a dinner of roast pork is more extravagant than a meal of simpler and more digestible food, and | that by a diet of cake and pie he will require more food to supply the needs of the system than by a meal of soup and bread. One of the missionary aims of the public cooking school is the sim plifying of the taste so that the living of the workingman will be less extrava gant and more wholesome. OBITUARY.

GEN. BLACK'S CAREER. A Soldier, Patriot and Statesman Favored for the Second Place. It was not always thought necessary for a vice-presidential candidate to have "strong points." As late as 1880 he was chosen to placate the faction defeated in its choice for first place on the ticket. But the fact that the vice president has twice in less than three decades been required to fill the executive chair is very properly remembered now as a reason why due care should be exercised in filling the second, as well as the first place on a national ticket. As soon as it became evident that Mr. Cleveland must succeed himself at the head of the ticket Gen. Black's boom for second place began to reverberate over the prairies of Illinois, held now to be a doubtful state, and to echo even as far east as Washington, where statesmen who -fought, and still fight, for the Union with their mouths took immedi ate delight in ridiculing the "total wreck" which they averred Mr. Cleve land had foisted on the pension bureau. John Charles Black was born Jan. 29, 1839, in Pennsylvania, where his family were among the earliest settlers. He was a preacher's son, and succeeded early in life to a heritage of hard work and educational struggle. Soon after the death of her husband, Mrs. Black went West and made a new home in Danville, 111. After the various pre paratory stages, John C. Black entered Wabasha college at Crawfordsville Ind., undertaking the regular collegiate course. It was here" the first call to arms reached young Black, and on the same day that cannon balls began bat tering the walls of Fort Sumter. April 12. 4*1, the student turned his back upon Alma Mater and enlisted in the Mont gomery Guards as a private. This com pany was afterwards regularly mustered into the service as Company I, Eleventh Indiana infantry, Col. Lew Wallace (afterwards major-general) commanding. After the expiration of the three months' term for which the regiment had en listed. Black returned to Danville, 111., and recruited a company for three years' service. This company became Com pany X of the Thirty-seventh Illinois infantry, of which regiment young Black was commissioned major. From that position he was rapidly promoted until he was brevetted brigadier-general for gallant service on the field. Until the last battle of the civil war was fought (Jen. Black remained at the front, commanding a brigade with marked ability. As Gen. Black's wounds left him a "total wreck," and he has been deemed worthy of the highest pension paid by the government, it may be worth while to describe them accurately. At the battle of Pea Ridge, Ark., Major Black was shot in the right forearm, the bullet passing between the bones about two inches below the ulna and injuring the elbow joint. After he was promoted he again was wounded at the battle of Prairie Grove, Ark., in December, 1862. This time he was shot in the left upper arm. The bone being shattered, resec tion became necessary, and from that time the arm has . been permanently disabled. The wound inflicted at Pea Ridge apparently healed, but in December following reopened and caused great suffering. From this time on until the close of the war Gen. Black was a cripple and unfit for active duty. But such service as he could ren der he cheerfully gave. Having en listed in the reserve corps he was, in November, 1804, placed in command of the Fourth Brigade, Reserve Corps, Mil itary Division of the Mississippi, and in March, 1865. while in active service, was made brigadier general by brevet for gal lant and meritorious service in the fie I'd and mustered out of service in August, 1865. He was less than twenty-four years old when he was mustered out. He enlisted as a private at nineteen years of age and left the army at the close of the war with two gaping wounds and a brigadier-general's com mission, and he less than twenty-four years! It was a great record. Had (Jen. Black been other than a Democrat in politics the political preferment he might have reached in a Republican state like Illinois might have equaled that of the great unhurt Logan, or even the glory of the unarmed and ununi formed Ingalls himself. The war ended, (Jen. Black, tin daunted, sought a livelidood. He set tled in -Champaign county, studied, or rather perfected himself in law, and be gan practice. His success has gener ally been commensurate with his free dom from pain and suffering. For sev eral years his right arm seemed to have recovered its functions. But his left arm was always a total wreck. It is useless, and ought really to have been amputated at the time the resection took place. A few years ago the wound in the right arm broke out afresh, blood poisoning came, and but for a strong and youthful constitution the man would have died. Senator Voorhees was right when he said in the senate: "His shattered and splintered bones leave him not one-moment's free dom from pain; he can sleep but in one position in his bed at night, and hail he not been upheld by a spirit pos sessed by few men on this earth he would have stink and died lons ago from excessive and constant suffering. lit 1 is made of the material that consti tutes heroes. Since his wounds broke out afresh he has had no more ability to earn a livelihood by his own exer tions than a child. And even though his constitution has survived the shock, yet his hair has whitened, and, for a young man of forty-five, he is prema turely aged." As a lawyer and as a political orator he ranks deservedly high. As a gov ernment officer he has given general satisfaction. He has repeatedly been nominated by the Democracy of his dis trict for congress, and his party in the state at large would often have delight ed to honor him had it not so long re mained in a decisive minority. GRAY'S DEMOCRACY. The Man Whom Indiana Calls a Favorite Son. The mantle of Hendricks, so long "the favorite son" of Democratic Hoosierdom, is said to have fallen on the shoulders of Isaac P. Gray, the Pennsylvania Quaker who has man aged to crowd to the top of Indiana pol itics over the shoulders of such men as Voorhees and McDonald, if Indiana is to lie permitted to fill the sec oud place on the national Demo cratic ticket, Gov. Gray's friends think he is the man for the place, and until the dissensions in his party ranks, which developed the late bitter letter of ex-Senator McDonald, Mr. Gray was looked on for the honor with much favor all over the country. The fact that he was once a Republican has lent piqu ancy to his candidacy, which was form ally started as long ago as the 11th of January, when he captured the Demo cratic conference at Indianapolis and secured from its committee on resolu tions a straight-out indorsement. In the early part April the Democratic state convention repeated the indorse ment. Isaac P. Gray was born in Chester county. Pa. His ancestors were mem bers of the Society of Friends, his great grandfather having come over with William Perm and having been a mem ber of the general assembly from 1684 to 1692, when Perm was governor of the province of Pennsylvania. Gov. Gray's parents moved to Ohio iv 1836. Gov. Gray moved to Union City, Ind., in 1855. where he resided until he established his residence in Indianapolis, in ISBS, to assume the duties of the office of gov ernor of the state. By profession he is a lawyer. He was appointed by Gov. Morton in 1862 colonel of the Fourth Indiana cavalry. He also raised and organized the One Hundred and Forty-seventh Indiana infantry in 18*54; was the candidate of the anti-Julian party in 1866 for congress; was elected state senator in 1868, and in July, 1870, was appointed by President Grant con sul to St. Thomas, ami confirmed by the senate, but declined the appointment. He was a delegate-at-large to the Lib eral Republican national convention of 1873 at Cincinnati, and was appointed by the convention a member for Indiana of the national committee. His name was placed before the Democratic state convention of 1872 for congressman-at large, but was withdrawn by his orders. His name was again placed before the Democratic state convention of 1874 for attorney general, and again it was with drawn by him. The convention of 1876 nominated him for lieutenant governor on the ticket with James D. Williams for governor, and upon the death of Gov. Williams he served out the remainder of his official term. The state convention of 1880 nom inated him again by acclamation for lieutenant governor. -~ J The Democratic legislative caucus" of 1881 nominated him again for United States senator. The party being in the minority, the nomination was simply a compliment. The state convention of 1884 nominated him for governor, he re ceiving on the first ballot two-thirds of the votes of the convention. His can vass of the state was a very brilliant and able one, resulting in his election by nearly 1,000 majority more than re ceived by the electoral ticket. On his Republican record, W. R. Hol loway, of Indianapolis, writes this: "Gov. Gray was an active and staunch Republican up to Feb. 22, 1872, at which time he was a candidate before the Re publican state convention for the office of lieutenant governor. Gen. Thomas M. Browne, now a prominent member of congress, and Gov. Gray were both residents of Randolph county, and the former was nominated for governor, which fact prevented the nomination of Gray for lieutenant governor. In May, 1872, three months after his defeat in a Republican convention, he attended and became one of the managers of the Greeley convention at Cincinnati. No well-Informed man will pretend that Gov. Gray was not as bitter a Re publican as he has since been a Democrat. He was a Republican member of the state senate dur ing the pending of proceedings to ratify the fourteenth amendment to the constitution of the United States and was its presiding officer. Just before the vote was to be taken it became evi dent that the Democratic members were preparing to bolt, and thus leave the senate without a quorum. Gov. Gray left the chair, went to the door of the senate chamber, took the key from the doorkeeper, locked the door and re turned to his seat as presiding officer of the senate. When the Democrats pro tested he told them that he had the key to the door in his pocket, and if any member desired to retire before the vote was taken he had better come, and try to get it. He then ordered the vote taken, and while the Democrats pro tested and shouted themselves hoarse and refused to vote, Gov. Gray ordered the secretary of the senate to record the Democrats 'as present and not voting,' and so the amendment passed." Gov. Gray's life has been an active and laborious one, not devoid of variety. He received a common-school educa tion, and being ambitious, energetic and of studious habits, he early entered upon the study of law. His limited in come, however, compelled him to relin quish his chosen profession and accept a clerkship in a mercantile house in New Madison, where his strict integrity and close application to business were soon rewarded with a partnership, and in a few years he became the sole pro prietor. In 1855 he removed to Union City, Ind., and after successfully conducting the mercantile business for a few years ' he re-entered the practice of law, in which he was also successful, his prac tice extending to the supreme and United States courts. As a young man Gov. Gray was a member of the Whig party, but acted with the Republicans during the war. He was appointed colonel of the Fourth I Indiana cavalry by Gov. Morton in 1862, and in 1864 his failing health necessi tated his return home, when he re cruited and organized the One Hundred and Twenty-seventh Indiana infantry. In 1866 he. was selected as the candi date for congress over George W.Julian, who had long represented that district in the house of representatives, but was defeated. The World's Washington correspond out wrote of him recently: "Gov. Gray is now about fifty years old. He weighs about 150 pounds and he stands 5 feet 8 inches in his stockings. He is well built broad-shouldered and digni fied. As straight as an arrow, his big head is covered with a good thatch of wavy dark-brown hair. Gray eyes full of determination look out from under a high, broad and full forehead, and his large mouth aud cast-iron jaw show him to be a man of character. He is a man of strong feelings, remarkable ability and an ex traordinary amount of willpower. He at once took a leading place in the Dem ocratic party. He made a splendid fight for Tilden in 1876, and was elected as lieutenant governor on the ticket with Blue Jeans Williams. He ran for the nomination for* governor in 1880, but after an exciting contest he was de feated by a close vote by Franklin Landers, who owned a pork house filled with hogs and money. He was renom inated, however, for lieutenant gover and, though the ticket was defeated, he ran ahead of it. . "In 1881 the feud between Gov. Gray j and Senator Joseph E. McDonald be- I gan. McDonald had been in the United States senate, and the legislature was Republican. The Democrats had, how ever, a complimentary vote for senator to bestow, but instead of giving this to i Senator McDonald, as is the custom,. I they gave it to Gov. Gray. I don't i know that Gray had anything to do with j this compliment to himself, but Joe McDonald has never forgiven him, I and the feud between them exists to-day. McDonald has, however, 1 am told, gone down in public opinion, while Gray has gone up, and Gray now seems to hold all the Democratic cards in his I hands. In 1884 Gray was unanimously nominated for governor. He made a j magnificent campaign for Cleveland | and Hendricks and the state was car- I ried. Had there not been a Republican lieutenant governor and had it not been that his election to the senate would have given the state over to the Repub licans, he would have been elected to the senate in the place of David Tur pie, but he preferred to stand by his party. " Vooshees fears, though he may not 1 possibly acknowledge it, that Gray may | be a candidate for the United State j senate against him at the next election, ] and he is glad to support Gray to get j him out of the way. Gov. Gray is a j leader and a fighter. His force is the aggressive, and not long ago, on being told that som thing: he was doing might offend the politicians, he said: 'Damn I the politicians! Give me the boys that i do the work,' and in his campaigns he j goes on this principle. He works inde- ! fatigably, and after a speech, instead of j going to his hotel like most stumpers. he moves about among the boys and I discusses with them their methods of j running the campaign. "Gov.Gray has made a good governor. j He now lives in Indianapolis with his I wife and son, Pierre Gray. Pierre is j his father's private secretary, and his i wife is a very beautiful woman. Gov. I Gray is worth about §60.000." This sturdy, self-reliant, selt-made ! man. who is a practical politician as well as a man of convictions, may yet be a very prominent figure in Demo cratic councils. ; ;•'' NO BLAINE, NO NOMINEE. An Alleged Reform Proposed by a Heartsick Republican. St. Louis, June 3.— The result of the recent Republican state convention, j showing the party in Missiouri to .be I almost unanimous in its support of | Blame, has appeared significant to many of the politicians in view of the fact that the Maine statesman has re peatedly declared himself out of the race. It developed yesterday, however, that a curious and rather surprising plan of action is being discussed by prominent Republicans of the city and state— a plan which -looks toward a re fusal on the part of the national con vention at Chicago to name a national ticket, leaving their declaration of principles as fighting ground, and sub mitting themselves to the will aud pleas ure of the electoral college. A Republican who has held many positions of honor and trust in this state, and whose experience in politics has been unlimited, turned from a reading of Blame's latest letter yesterday and said: "The feeling has been growing strong er of late years that the national noniU hating convention system has outlived its usefulness, if, indeed, it Mas ever more than a convenience for party man agers. The time must come, and many believe it is at hand, when the people of this country will trust simply to the machinery of the law for the election of a president. We all know this has never been done. For many years after the organization of the govern ment senators and representatives, as sembled in caucus at Washington, named the candidates to be voted for by the electoral college, that hodv being simply a ratification meeting to" indorse the action of party bosses. When the gross abuses of the caucus system de manded some sort of reform, party lead ers, still unwilling to play a square game with the people, hatched the na tional convention system, which has since that time governed the country. The evils of the convention system aro so apparent that reform is only a ques tion of time. Some party, with strong faith in the people,|will. in the near fut ure, factually invite the sovereigns of this country to try the method prescribed by the constitution for electing a chief executive. "Most practical men believe that poli tical parties are necessary to the conser vation of certain principles in a govern ment of the people, by the people. It is only among machine politicians—politi cians for revenue only— tint the doctrine is taught that government by bosses o* leaders is desirable. An electoral col lege, not hampered by instructors from a national nominating convention, would elect a president in political sympathy with the majority of the college. Such a president might not represent any particular faction of his party, but he would represent the party electing him. "It is more than probable that the Re publican party would have chosen a president in 1884 if they had made no nomination at Chicago, but simply ad vised Republicans to vote for Republi can electors, unpledged to any individ ual candidate. Mr. Conkliug would not have sulked for one thing. All the leaders would have been at the front, hoping for preferment by the body legally empowered to make a president. "But the convention named a man at Chicago. In my opinion a good man, and one who would have been elected but for a series of accidents. The convention forced the party to sup port a man, instead of a declaration of principles. Now the Republican party professes to care more for principled than for any man, or for many men. A long lease of power made prominent many leaders— ambitious and all jealous of the others. An attempt to unite all factions in support of one leader failed, as was inevitable, sooner or later. It almost failed in 1876, and again in 1880. The same thing defeated the Democratic party in 1860. That party then had too many bosses. Now it has only one candidate, and it will support him as one man. The Repub licans have a favorite son in almost every state. "If the Republican party has faith in the people and in the electoral system which is a part of our government ma chinery, they will make no nomination at Chicago this year, but will simply de clare the principles of the party and go home and help elect Republican elec tors. If they can control the electoral college they can elect a Republican president— not the favorite; of this or that clique, perhaps, but a Republican. Then the people furnishing majorities can select the chief executive— and this is American. It is ridiculous for a national convention. whose mem bers are chosen at packed primary meetings— who are not elected by the people— to dictate totho electoral college, a body legally chosen by the people, the candidates to be voted for. It is time to place the power in the hands of the electoral college, which has heretofore been only an orna mental appendage to a caucus chosen convention. ✓ "I hope to see the Chicago convention declare its faith in the ability of the people to govern themselves by declin ing to make a nomination. This would send the matter to the electoral college, where it legitimately belongs. I believe this reform is demanded by the times, and the party which first trusts the peo ple in this matter will, in my opinion, first deserve lasting success." DIED FOR LOVE'S SAKE. The Sad and Romantic Story oft Jennie Abrahams, a Suicide. i Friends, family, home, native land and even her religion Jennie Abrahams gave up for love's sake and then killed herself because her great love was re jected. It was a sad but romantic story that had its ending with the young girl's death last week in Philadelphia. Miss Abrahams was young, strikingly pretty, tall and slender, with intellect ual features. Her home originally was in Berlin. Germany, where she lived with her widowed mother and several relatives. They all belonged to the Jewish faith and this young woman was the eldest child and pride of the family. John Ligien, who lives at No. 40 Hamburger strasse, Berlin, had for two years been Jennie's sweetheart. He is a journalist, connected with the Deutsche Presse of that city, and would have been well received by Miss Abra hams' family had he not been a Christ ian. Jennie, however, cared nothing for the difference in their faith. "She told him, and also told her relatives, that she would make their faiths one, for slit; would become a Christian. Last August she made her decision. She determined to hold it. Mother, brothers, all her relatives in Berlin, pleaded and argued with her, but she was inflexible. Taking with her the little money she had saved from her spending money, she-left home secretly and . went to Hamburg. There she found the steamer Lessing about to sail for Havre and thence to New York. She paid her passage as an emigrant, and in September, 1887, found herself in Havre. There she telegraphed to her lover, saying she had sailed for America, and bidding him, if he loved her, to follow on the next steamer. He answered that at the time he could not arrange affairs to do so at once. Jennie, on her arrival, went to the house of her aunt, Mrs. Neogarten Girard avenue, Philadelphia. Some how, the oftener Jennie wrote John the less he answered, and lie showed no signs of coming to America. The girl thought it was because she was a Jewess, and then she exe crated her family and faith and finally tried to cast John from her heart. In this great hour of despair and trial the poor girl tried to procure laud anum to end her sadness. After the Ist of May Jennie was watched. She would cry out, "See, John, I am now a Christian," and she would take a Cath olic crucifix from her bosom and kiss it. /-*;-- -,-:-- A few days ago, in one of her fits of blues or crazy spells, she threw herself from the second story window into the side yard and received the injuries from which she died in Jefferson hos pital. _ ; " -B~ _ State Convention A.
