DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES.
From the National Democratic Platform of
1870.
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
lew. 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
Bales 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
1880.]
A tariff for revenue only.
[From the National Democratic Platform,
1884.]
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,
Dec. 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
ury through the perversion 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
our workingmen need, and with benefit
to them all and all our people, by cheap
ening their means of subsistence and
increasing the measure of their com
forts.

TH TUBMAN'S TRIUMPH.
The Tin' rm an boom is marching on.
The red bandana hangs on the outer
wall at St. Louis, and the gathering
clans are marshaling under its ample
folds. It is a proud day for the old
Roman.
It looked like rubbing it in a little
hard when the Tammany hall delega
tion stopped at Gov. Gray's home yes
terday and held a Tiurman jollifica
tion meeting. But the Tiurman tide
has set in, and therejis no telling where
it is going to stop. It is already out of
banks and overflowing the country, and
the indications are that all the little
vice-presidential boomlets will be swept
away in the flood.
This wonderful demonstration in
honor of the grand old statesman is a
popular reaction which augurs well for
the -republic. The mass of the people
have waited long and patiently for an
opportunity to rebuke the monopolies
for striking Tiiurman down. Their
opportunity has come. His age and in
firmities make no difference to them.
He is still alive to witness the great
salvation of the American people from
monopoly rule, and that is enough.
— i ■
AN INSPIRATION.
The delegates who gather in conven
tion at St. Louis to-day must feel that
they are standing on almost sacred
ground. It was there just twelve years
ago the convention assembled which
nominated Samuel J. Tilden for the
presidency, and as the memories of that
eventful year* rise in the minds of the
delegates to-day they must surely be
impressed with the seriousness of their
surroundings and of the work they have
in hand. r
The year IS7O was the centennial year
of American independence, and it was
fit that* it should mark the regeneration
of our national Democracy. The prin
ciples of Democracy were everlastingly
inscribed upon our national life and
records when the Declaration of In
dependence was written, for the
author of that immortal paper
was the founder of the Democratic
party, and his devotion to freedom and
the forms of popular government was
impressed on everything that he wrote
or spoke.
Of all the Democratic leaders who
succeeded Jefferson during the cent
ury which elapsed between the promul
gation of the Declaration of Independ
ence and the last St. Louis convention,
it is a remarkable fact. that none more
resembled the party's great founder
than Samuel J. Til den. As a sage
and a patriot Mr. Tilden was the fit
representative of Thomas Jefferson.
How appropriate it was, then, that he
should be named as the party's candi
date for the highest office in the nation
on the centennial year of our national
independence. The crime that was
perpetrated against the nation that year,
by which Mr. Tilden was robbed of the
office to which he had been elected, will
be recalled by the ■ assembling of this
convention in St. Louis to-day.
Thus it is the delegates will come
together in an almost sacred presence.
If it he true that the spirits of those
who have passed into the unknown
realms are conscious of what, transpires
on the earth, then Thomas Jefferson
and Samuel J. Tilden are looking
down upon the St. Louis assemblage
with fatherly interest. The thought is
enough to inspire the delegates with a
determination to do only that which
would meet the approbation of those
who gave birth to Democratic princi
ples and who fostered them through the
first century of our national existence.
-q*, ■ ■
THE NEXT SENATE.
A correspondent writes: "In your
editorial on Tiiurman in Sunday's
Globe you say the next senate will
probably be a tie. Upon what basis is
this estimate made?"
lii the senate, as it is now constituted,
the Republicans have thirty-nine mem
bers and the Democrats thirty-seven.
In the senate of the Fifty-first congress,
which comes into existence on March 4
next, the Democrats will have thirty
eight and the Republicans thirty-eight,
as Barbour, Democrat, will succeed
Riddleberger, Republican, and on
all political questions the vice president
will have to cast the deciding vote.
It is true that within the next year
the terms of twenty-six members of the
senate will expire. Successors to two I
of the retiring Republicans and to three
of the Democrats have already been
chosen with the result, above indicated,
of making the senate a tie on a party I
vote. It is not probable that there will j
be any further gains or losses in the re- j
maining states that are yet to elect
senators. The only debatable states I
are New Jersey, where the Republicans
are making an effort to defeat McPiier
son", and Oregon, where the Democrats
are making an equally vigorous effort
to oust Dolph. If the Republicans
capture New Jersey and lose Oregon
the senate will still be a tie.
Hence it will be seen that the Globe
hit the mark when it stated that the
nomination of a candidate for vice
president was a matter of grave impor
tance to the Democrats.

CARNEGIE'S ASSERTION.
Mr. Carnegie has been talking
again. This time it was to an English
reporter. He declares that the senti
ment in this country in favor of pro
tection, which is synonymous with a
high tariff, is so marked that, in the
event of the Democratic convention in
dorsing a low tariff, the desertions from
the Democratic party to the p;,rty of
protection will be wide-spread— ex
tended, in fact, as to insure Repubican
success. Mr. CARNEGIE has of late
made several very interesting public
statements, notably when, simultane
ously with announcing a reduction in
the wages of his workmen, he sketched
his plans for an extensive and ex
pensive summer's pleasuring. But
in but one or two respects Mr. Carne
gie's assertions will doublets be verified.
-The St. Louis. convention, being a gatli
ing of the people's representatives, will
most certainly indorse a low tariff
platform.
It is quite probable, too. that because
of such, indorsement certain alleged
Democrats, who have profited at- the
expense of their fellows, may go over to
the party of protection; Monopolists,
like birds of a feather, flock together.
But in regard to their defection insuring
Republican successive fear Mr. Car
negie, is jesting. Such a deduction
hardly does credit to the common sense
'ho is popularly supposed to possess.
THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 5, 1888. —TEN PAGES.
For even as strong a partisan as Mr.
Carnegie cannot have failed to recog
nize the fact that the low tariff senti
ment prevailing among Republicans Is
vastly more wide-spread than the high!
tariff, monopolistic sentiment is amongst
Democrats.
Therefore, in the nature of things,
the defection from the Democratic party
would be more than offset by the acces
s-ions from the Republican party, and
the reasoning of .'Mr.. Carnegie would
come to naught. That, by the way, is
generally the outcome of all reasoning
which has the high tariff as a basis.
The premises being false, the conclu
sions must logically be equally untrust
worthy.

DAKOTA'S DEADLOCK.
Dakota is noted for its lively politics.
There is an impression abroad that if
there is any liveliness in politics any
where, our Dakota friends are going to
get a slice of it. They are keeping up
their reputation at St. Louis. Our dis
patches from that city this morning in
form us that the whole day was spent
by the Dakota delegation yesterday in
a vain effort to effect a permanent or
ganization. Considering the fact that
there are only two delegates, it is easy
to imagine what a lively time they had
of it. Being only two, and both want
ing the same positions, a deadlock was
the most natural thing in the world.
Our dispatches don't say so, but the
probabilities are that the only way the
contest will be terminated and the dead
lock broken will be by the toss of
a nickel, with heads I win, tails you
lose.
THE POLITICAL VOICE.
The St. Cloud Convention—Nel
son's Successor— Barto's Confi
dence in Himself— Steams and
His Nap — Buckman the Enigma
—Ramsey County's Ratification.
One week from this morning, at 10
o'clock, the Republican congressional
convention, of the
Fifth district, will
be called to order at
St. Cloud, and a con
test somewhat new
tto the district be
opened. Knute Nel
son has had his own
way so completely
in that section of the
state that his retire
ment from congres
sional honors at once
threw into the field
a host of men who
have been waiting
for years to succeed
the doughty Norwegian. The heritage
of over 20,000 majority (principally made
up of Scandinavian votes; that he leaves
is too choice a plum to be ignored, and
of the half dozen candidates in the field
undoubtedly there Is not one but what
thinks that he can hold that selfsame
20,000 solid next November.
But 20,000 does not represent the real
Republican majority of the district.
When Mr. Nelson corralled that vote he
had no Democratic nominee to oppose
him, and his Prohibition opponent was
too weak to materially affect the result.
Mr. Nelson could then and now get 20,
--000 majority without sneezing. His im
mense personal popularity and his tariff
position couut as long odds in his favor.
In many respects though Mr. Nelson is
not the Republican party, as for in
stance, is evidenced by his* vote in the
Fifth district in 1886 and the vote for the
Republican state ticket. There is no
Republican in the district the superior
of Mr. Nelson in ability, and without his
strong nationality hold, no one who can
command the votes he did. There is
every reason to think that whoever is
nominated to succeed Mr. Nelson will
not have a walk-over nor take his seat
(if elected) by a majority one-half of
that which was given in 1880.
* *
Of all the Republicans anxious to put
on Nelson's shoes none approach as
near his tariff position as Mr. Barto.
He, it has been freely said, would, if
nominated, declare himself for the Nel
son free list. None of the others have
been as bold as this, apparently think
ing the point too slight to be made. But
when a district is so exclusively made
up of farmers as the Fifth, it would
seem that to be in accord with them on
the tariff would be one card to success.
Unfortunately, perhaps, to Mr. Barto,
his tariff stand has been negatived by a
trait in his character. Commendable,
perhaps, but harmful in politics —
over-sanguinity. Since his canvass
opened he has looked at the field with
spectacles so focused that in every
man's face, in every eye, on every field
and in every township he has seen only
a reflection of himself. The result has
been to fill his brain with pleasant
fancies and delusive dreams. The very
birds chattel-ins: over the plowed field,
or by the shallow course of the Sauk,
have to his ears called '-Barto." To
himself he is a man of destiny. And
that— that will be the one stumbling
block to his success. If he gets over it,
it will be one instance where over-con
fidence has won against cooler heads
and better campaigners.
* *
"Barto," said a Fergus Falls resident
yesterday, "will go into the convention
with the largest vote. On the first ballot
he will receive 34 or 35 votes— or more,
and after that he will lose one or two,
and then a few more until his strength
dwindles to 20. There it will stand, and
some one else carry off the nomination."
* *
The canvass of Judge Stevens for the
nomination has been hampered some by
his judicial position, and then St. Louis
county, despite its commercial import
ance, lies too far east to control or
dictate the more shrewd western tier of
counties. The judge took a nap and
woke one morning to find that Norman
county, supposed to be for him, had
gone to Barto. The county was in the
territory of S. (i. Coinstock, another of
the congressional candidates, but
Barto got it. Now it is said
that when the convention meets
the Norman county delegation
will divide itself between Barto and
Coinstock. Some way or other Corn
stock has not materialized the strength
that his enthusiastic friends in the leg
islature of two years ago claimed he
would. His capacity for shrewdness
has not been questioned, but if he has
done any effective work it has been sly.
E. E. Corliss, of Fergus Falls, will have
the Otter Tail delegation, which is to
be chosen next Monday but they say ot
him, that if he is nominated that his
own county will be one of the first to
slaughter him at the polls. Calculators
on the result of the convention say that
he will lie the nominee or Buckman.
Buckman is the enigma of the conven
tion.
* *
p_»» WW
Who is he? A sunburnt, jolly-faced
lumberman, senator from Morrison
county, and a new one to political
work. He is young, untrammeled and
has been groomed carefully by his
shadow and other half, Hon. d. C.
Flynn, of Little Falls. Buckman will
be the disturbing quantity in the con
vention from present appearances. His
county has indorsed him with a whoop,
but many knowing ones question
whether this was done to help him out
or to give him the chance of nominating
someone else. There is a question un
determined yet and hinted at above.
"Is Mr. Buckman a candidate or does
he wish to helo out a friend?" Allah is
good, but it must remain unanswered
this week. As side lights to the con
vention Halvor Steenerson and Judge
Locke are spoken of as candidates with
out positive strength, but strong hopes
— very strong hopes. -

The Democracy of St. Paul and Ram
sey county, and possibly Hennepin, are
already planning for a reception and
jollification on the return of the Minne
sota delegation from St. Louis. It will
be in its way a local ratification of the
nominees of the convention. Plans for
the affair will materialize to-day and to
morrow, and may include bands,
speeches and a parade. Thursday night
or Friday afternoon the delegates may
be looked for. -•--->•."

Thomas C. Hodgson, of the Farmers'
alliance, has just returned from the
still waters and green pastures of Grant
county, and was ready yesterday to talk
politics or anything else. "The opposi
tion to the alliance," he said, "arises
from | the fact that it tends to heal the
differences between political parties and
destroy party lines. All through the
state you'll find that nine out of every j
ten Republicans are opposed to raising
a surplus by means of a tariff, and the
Democratic party declares in favor of a
tariff for revenue only. The bitterest
enemies of the alliance are the high
protective tariff men, who don't want to
see the farmers getting into a habit of
thinking for themselves on this topic.
The alliance would open the farmers' ■
eyes to their own interests, and that is
just what their enemies do not want to i
have happen."
mt
AN ACE IN HIS SLEEVE.
The Tricks of "Dupely" Dodge, a
Famous Gambler Who Has Just
Cashed In. *j|j
There died in Syracuse last week a i
man whose fame as a gambler once
spread from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Henry P., better known as "Dupely"
Dodge, was born in Onondaga county,
Nov. 3, 1812. He never liked farm
work, and while still young ran
away to Rochester. He" wandered
about the country for . a num
ber of years, and in 1836 "got it
into his head that he could play cards."
He won all the money he could in Syra
cuse, and went to Chicago. Then after
gambling for a time he embarked in the
show business. He was a fast friend of
Charley Backus, the minstrel. He man
aged Charley Perkins, a Rochester
sport, when he was giving exhibitions
ot the manly art. Poker, Dodge said,
was the only gentleman's game. He
was proud to say that his associates
all through his career had been
'gentlemen and scholars." He could
call by name hundreds of men with
whom he had sat at the card table and
who in "their day were prominent in the
councils of the nation. Naturally
enough, he learned many of the wiles
practiced by the cheats and tricksters,
but he never thought of making them a
part of his outfit. His knowledge, how
ever, served him in good stead when, as
often happened, he ran up against a
sharper by whom he would often be
mistaken for a country minister or a
farmer just ready to be plucked.
"Say, stranger," one of these "smart
Alecks," who had a confederate with
him, once said to Mr. Dodge on a Mis
sissippi steamboat, "just help me out
with a hand. Your church will never
know it, and a few lessons in the game
will never hurt your soul."
They were deceived by his sanctimo
nious air, and evidently mistook him for
a Methodist preacher. "Dupely" made
some inquiries about the game, and
then took a seat at the table just
to "oblige" them. Pretty soon the
"smart Aleck" began putting up
the cards on the guileless-looking
stranger, and Mr. -Dodge, noticing it,
quietly stowed away an ace in his sleeve
and awaited developments. He always
liked to catch a sharper in his own trap.
At the proper time the man who had
proposed the game dealt "Dupelv"
three aces, and . took four kings unto
himself. The betting was steep, and
the sharper was led to the end of his
rope.
"What have you got?" he asked, as
he threw down his four kings.
"Four aces," was "Dupely's" plea of
guilty.
"You have, have you, you priestly
cripple; and you have my money,
haven't you?"
"1 have," answered "Dupely."
"Damn your eyes." said the sharper.
"Amen," was the pious ejaculation of
the old sport as he took the wad and put
it out of sight.

BUT ONE HOPE LEFT.
The Date for the Execution of
Preller's Murderer Is Fixed.
Jeffeeson City, Mo., June 4.—
the session of the supreme court this
morning Chief Justice Norton fixed the
day for the execution of Hugh M.
Brooks, alias Maxwell, the murderer of
C. Arthur Preller. at the Southern
hotel, for the 13th of July. At this time
last year the execution was fixed for the
23d of last August, but the case was
carried to the United States supreme
court. There is no further appeal for
the case, and executive clemency is. all
that can be hoped for by the doomed
man's friends. Popular feeling is much
opposed to executive clemency.

Legitimate and Bogus Circulation.
"Minneapolis Journal.' .'
One of our St. Paul contemporaries
[not the Globe] is boasting of its great
circulation, which it claims reached in
May a daily average of 10,084, including
Sunday. . It is only proper, however, to
call attention to the fact that this is
largely the result of a systematic writ
ing up of cities and towns in an adver

terms by the speaker, the vast audience
cheered and applauded until the air
grew thick and heavy. Following the
address. Miss Hagerty and Mr. Donahue
sang a duet, "Sweetly the Moonlight."

was acquired in the primitive log school
house. He remembers distinctly about j
the war of 1812. He helped build the
fort at Plattsburg, N. V., and when the
battle of that name occurred he was
within sound of the musketry. Repub
lican in politics, but not very enthusi
astic, as he has only voted once for a
county officer since lie voted for Grant.
He is a carpenter by trade. Last sum
mer he laid 17,000 shingles on his farm
buildings alone. Ten years ago while
threshing the stacks caught tire from
the engine and entailed a loss of {200.

years of age, with a friend named Med
ciff. which is worthy of mention. They
started from their old home in Vermont,

miles. When they passed through Al
bany, coming all the way on foot, they
took a raft to Pittsburg, Pa., and then
