The Chicago Times evidently pos
sesses a very clear understanding of the
tariff situation in Minnesota. Witness
the following:
At the big Prohibition meeting in this city
last Saturday night Walter Mills said tba"t
the Minnesota Republicans are for low tariff,
while all the Pennsylvania Republicans are
for high tariff, and that, therefore, tariff is
not an issue. This conclusion will hardly
Stand the test of logical analysis. It is be

They will go with the party that gives the
best promise of tariff reform, and that most

It may be added that they ' have dis

right party, and are coming over in very

CHICAGO SIDE-TRACKED.
In a careful review and discussion of
the rate war being waged by one North
western railroad the New York Times
has come to the conclusion that the time
has come In the history of transconti
nental traffic when Chicago is to be
side-tracked. The growing importance
of the Twin Cities as a railway center,
in connection with Duluth as their lake
port, is what is cooking Chicago's coose,
according to the Times' argument. The
Times reasons in this way: "It is
only a trine further from Duluth to
where Lake Superior empties into Lake
Huron than from Chicago to where Lake
Michigan mingles its waters with Lake
Superior's on their descent to saltwater.
Fut in another *,way, after a cargo has
traveled hundreds of miles from Chicago
to the straits of Mackinaw, it is no fur
ther toward Europe and foreign mar
kets than as though it had traversed
only a trifle longer distance from Duluth
to the Sault Ste. Marie, and that is true
although Duluth lies hundreds of miles
west of Chicago and nearer the prairie
farms. It costs as much to take a loaded
boat northward as eastward, but the
distance northward from Chicago is a
loss of tinie»and cost of carriage, while
the distance eastward from Duluth is so
much to tin- good on the total journey.
In brief, Duluth's strategical position
makes it practically as near New York
and Liverpool as Chicago." :. . "
Thus completing the geography of the
situation, the Times turns its attention
to. a comparison of the railway routes
centering at the Twin Cities with those
centering at Chicago. The average
rail haul to Lake Michigan by the Chi
cago lines is 400 miles. The average
rail haul to Lake Superior by the St.
Paul lines is 150 miles, making the odds
in favor of the Twin Cities and Lake
Superior in the proportion of 400 to 150.
The Times insists that Chicago and its
great railways may as well face the
truth first as last— that Chicago is handi
capped by nature and cannot hope for.
an even contest with the Twin Cities
for the lake trade.
THE OFFICEHOLDERS.
The federal officeholders have it
within their power to contribute ma
terially to Democratic success this year.
Not in the usual way, and as was the
rule under Republican regime, by pull
ing off their coats and working for the
ticket during the entire campaign.
Quite the reverse of that. It is by
strictly attending to a performance of ,
the duties of their offices, just as if no
election were on hand, that the office
holders can contribute most to Demo
cratic success this year.
When the Cleveland administra
tion came into power it was with the
distinct promise that civil service re
form should be a leading feature of the
administration. And it has been. Mr.
Cleveland's election was due to the
independent voters who supported him
because they preferred him to Blame,
the spoilsman. It was understood in
advance that Blame's election would
result in the suppression of all effort in
the direction of civil service reform.
Mr. Cleveland's record as mayor
of Buffalo and governor of New
York seemed to be a guarantee
that he would be an honest champion of
reform in the civil service. The open
and active hostility of the spoilsmen in
his own party confirmed this opinion in
the minds of the independent voters,
and as a result they stuck to him and
elected him. During the nearly four
years of his administration the presi
dent has exhibited so many evidences
of his sincerity as a civil service re
former that the independent voters again
stand ready to support him, provided
nothing occurs during the progress of
the campaign to disturb their confidence
in him.
Thus it is, as above stated, the federal
officeholders have it within their power
to materially promote Democratic suc
cess or to insure defeat, the result de
pending largely upon their conduct dur
ing the campaign. Being the appointees
of the president, the officeholders are
virtually a part of the administration,
and their actions will be scrutinized as
closely as the movements of the presi
dent himself. It behooves each and
every one of them to act discreetly, for
a false step or unbecoming conduct on
the part of one would be charged up
against the whole administration.
Tiie fact that a man is an officeholder
does not deprive him of political
privileges that are the legitimate right
of all American citizens. But: it does
disqualify him for active partisan work.
The two main principles of civil service"
reform are, first, that promotion should
proceed upon the basis of merit and
not as a reward for party service; and,
secondly, that the sole duty of an office
holder is to earn his salary by sticking
strictly to the business ot his office. It
makes no difference whether this theory
is popular or not, or whether it com
mends itself or does not commend itself
to the judgment of the individual office
holder. The fact remains that the
Cleveland administration is pledged
to it, and every member of that adminis
tration is in honor bound to give it a
strict enforcement. Mr. Cleveland
was elected before because he was be
lieved to be honestly in favor of civil
service reform, and if he is elected
again it will be for the same reason.

MR. SCHEFFER'S POSITION.
Mr. Hodgson, who is a mogul in the
Farmers' alliance, avails himself of the
Globe's courtesy this morning to
square his friend and candidate, Mr.
Scheffer, on the tariff question. It
has been Mr. Scheffer's misfortune,
as it is the misfortune of all candidates,
to be misunderstood in his remarks, and
the idea has gone abroad that he is try
ing to get away from the platform on
which he was nominated. Mr. Schef
fkb wants it understood that he is not
a deserter, nor is he ashamed of his
principles. He has nailed his colors to
the mast, and intends to stand by them.
While we admire Mr. Scheffeij's
pluck, considering that he is a candi
date for a Republican nomination, we
do deplore his lack of discre
tion. Albert Soiikkfkp. is a good
man, an awfully good man— too
good a man, we fear, ever to be nomi
nated by a Republican convention— but
unless, as Mr. Hodgson asserts, his
Republican backing is nerved up to a
fighting point, the railroads and wheat
rings are going to be an over-match for
him. The man whom the farmers want
is not usually the man whom the ma
chine bosses nominate. Still, if Mr.
Scheffer's followers get fighting mad
and maintain a solid column in the Re
publican convention, it is possible they
may win the day.
THE SURPLUS AGAIN.
As common-sense people, endowed
with intelligence which enables them to
discriminate between right and wrong
more clearly than many of their fellows,
the people of the Northwest should keep
clearly in mind one issue, indeed, the
predominating issue, involved in the
campaign now upon us.
They know that there are piled up in
the national treasury ?125,000,000. They
know that this vast accumulation is in
. creasing at the rate of ?00,000,000 a year.
They know that this is not only unbusi
nesslike, but absolutely dangerous; that
it is decreasing the money of the coun
try to an alarming degree, and is put
ting forward the temptation of reckless
extravagance. They know that it ought
to be stopped.
They should remember that there is
but one way that it can be stopped—
through the Democratic party. The
Republicans absolutely refuse to aid in
any manner to stop the accumulation
of this surplus. On the other hand,
they want the accumulation, the result
of unnecessary taxation, to go right on.
The resulting surplus they propose to
get rid of by various schemes of reck
less and extravagant expenditure. The
Democrats, however, believe that the
national expenditures should be re
duced wherever possible, and that the
people should have the benefit of this
economy by keeping the surplus in
their pockets.
!• This is the issue. Keep it clearly- in
mind. As a fair-minded, intelligent
person, not blinded by partisan preju
dice, can you do otherwise than favor
the Democratic policy?
HURRY IT UP.
The tariff debate in congress has
dragged its weary length along to an ex
ceedingly tiresome degree, and the end
is not . yet. The speeches seem to be
practically inexhaustible. It makes no
difference that the champions on either
side have had their say% have advanced
all the arguments pro and con that can
be found to pertain to the subject; every
small - fry. congressman in : the j boose
wants to put himself on record in the
matter for self-laudatory purposes
among his constituents.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
speeches are for the most part dull and
uninteresting and advance nothing at
all that is likely to influence the decis
THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MOKNING, JUNE 12, 1888.
ion of the question one way or another,
the country must endure the affliction,
and valuable time is expended to no
purpose. Therefore the effort which
certain Democrats are making to bring
the debate to an end deserves to be
crowned with speedy success. If - any
member, does not possess a . clear com
prehension of the tariff question and
the relation to it of the Mills' bill by
this time, he never will. Had congress
exhibited even ordinary energy and dili
gence, the Mills bill might have been
brought to a definite conclusion long
ago. As it is, the session is now near
ing its end and but little has been ac
complished. W=H
There is certainly need of the pruning
off of useless discussion during the re
mainder of the session, and the sooner
it is begun the better.

THE PUBLIC LIBRARY.
The chamber of commerce yesterday
morning adopted the report of its com
mittee to which the matter of a public
library was referred. Although the ma
jority in favor of the report was not so
great as it should have been, it was
large enough to show conclusively the
sentiment of a representative body of
St. Paul business men in a matter of ex
ceeding public importance.
The report adopted was, in brief, that
the legislature empower the city to issue
bonds to the extent of 8350,000, §ioo,ooo
to be devoted to the purchase of a site,
the rest for tlie building and equipping
of the library. Though there is no
doubt but that a very creditable library
could be provided for a much
smaller sum, yet judged by the liber
ality of other cities in similar matters,
the amount contemplated is not exorbi
tant. Men should be sent to the next
legislature from Ramsey county who
are committed to the library project,
and who can be relied upon to carry out
the will of the people in the matter.
For the public library belongs peculiarly
to the people. It is their university.
They have from time to time given evi
dence of the favor with which they re
gard the plan, and as they must pay the
cost, that evidence should be conclusive. .
Before another year rolls around St.
Paul should have a public library which
will be a credit to the city and which
will adequately meet the wants of the
city's people.

SHE SMUGGLED THEM IN.
A Fashionable Dressmaker in
Gotham Gobbled by Magone.
New York, June 11.— The customs
agents and Collector Magone are exer
cised over an alleged discovery of smug
gling on an extensive scale by Mrs.
Rose Ludvigh, a fashionable dress
maker of Fourteenth street. She makes
up gowns for actresses and many
people of note, and her patrons fre
quently have Paris-made costumes or
dered through her. Last year her
brother, Maurice Desseldorf, who is in
business in Paris, visited her here, and
the two returned to Europe in
the fall— the dressmaker with large
orders from customers for Worth
costumes. While at the French capital
she perfected a clever scheme for evad
ing the customs duty on dresses, most
of which were seized to-day by the col
lector's agents. When the costumes
were prepared Miss Ludvigh went to
Miss Bessie Montour, of this city,
who was studying elocution in London,
and induced her to return home as an
actress with the Worth costumes as her
wardrobe, and acting herself as Miss
Montour's maid, In that way the
dresses were passed duty free on
the usual declaration. Many of
the gowns are now being worn
their owners being innocent of the man
ner of their importation and they have
not and it is likely will not be seized.
Miss Montour has returned to London
to pursue her studies. The entire im
portation was valued at $10,000.

' DESPERADOES RUN DOWN.
The Tramps Who Attempted Train
Robbery Are Now Surrounded by
Police.
Special to the Globe.
Cincinnati, 0., June 11.— At mid
night Chief Gill received a dispatch
from Lieut. Schmidt, at Delhi, saying
that the "Big Four" desperadoes had
been located in an empty house
on the Muddy creek, about
a mile from the train robbery. Three
men are in the house nursing the fourth
one. the latter having been injured by
being thrown from the train.
A patrol wagon and twelve po
licemen left immediately for the
place, and under the direction
of Chief Gill have surrounded the
house and an attempt will be made to
capture the desperadoes. It is more
than probable that they will
not be taken without a fight,
as the robbers are heavily . armed.
Two more arrests were made
this evening in connection with the
robbery. They were brought to this
city and locked up. They registered as
William Schmidt, of Columbus. 0., and
William Coates, of Richmond, Ind.
They did not give good accounts of
themselves and are being held.

CARNEGIE WILL CUT LOOSE.
After This Month His Bis Mills
Will Be Run Independently of
Labor Organizations.
Pittsburg, June 11.— Amalga
mated association convention will com
plete the new scale of wages to-morrow,
in order to present it to the manufact
urers on Wednesday. This will give
them time to consider it and be pre
pared to talk intelligently on the sub
ject at the conference, which will be
held on Thursday afternoon. The plate
and tank mill scale will be completed
to-day, when the balance of the scale
will be taken up, including the nailers'
scale. This was left out by the nianu
facturerer9 in their proposition to the
workers. The Amalgamated association
will insist on the. nailers scale being in
serted, and will also place the
roll turner's schedule of wages
before the manufacturers once more.
It is stated on reliable authority that
Carnegie. Phipps & Co. have decided
to cut loose from the Manufacturers'
Protective association and Amalga
mated association and run independent.
The break will be made on July 1, when
wage scales will be adopted for the
Union Iron mills at Twenty-ninth
street, the Thirty-third street mill and
the large steel plant at Homestead.
These works have heretofore been con
trolled by the Amalgamated associa
tion, and the wages based on the manu
facturers' bar iron card. It is proposed,
and the proposition will be carried out,
to change the base of the scale from bar
iron to the prices on structural material.
If the Carnegie firm insists on the
change of base, it may cause a rupture
in the workers organization, but the re
sult cannot be predicted at present.

King-Harman's Death Laid at
Lord Salisbury's Door— A S
Bishop's Threat. f,(
Potsdam, June 11.— Emperor Fred
erick passed a good night. The diffi
culty in swallowing, which has troubled
him for past few days, has not en
tirely disappeared. His appetite is
better. Crown Prince William called
upon. his father at 8 o'clock this morn
ing. Dr. Mackenzie, in the presence of
Drs. Wagener, Krause and Dardelbeu,
yesterday inserted a new silver canula.
The National Zeitung says: The in
sertion of the canula in the emperor's
throat causes difficulty, because the
trachea has become so enlarged that the
tube no longer fills it completely, and
pus coming from the upper part can
thus flow into the air tubes. To prevent
this a rubber ring has been fitted on the
canula so as to fill the space between
the tube and .the wall of the trachea.
In order to remedy the dryness of the
throat arising from the difficulty in
swallowing the emperor takes frequent
sips, day and night, of luke-warm milk
and whisky."
London, June 11.— The Berlin cor
respondent of the St. James Gazette
telegraphs that the emperor is dis
tinctly worse, and has lately suffered
severe pain. The correspondent also
says that a hole has been discovered
between the windpipe and the gullet,
and the taking of food is thereby made
dangerous. . .
SMITH IS SUSPICIOUS,
Hence He Wants Tories to Be on
, Hand and Ready to Vote.
Special to the Globe.
London. June 11.— The unusually ur
gent terms of the government whip,
issued by William Henry Smith and
published this afternoon, have created
a good deal of comment among the Con
servatives, and a large degree of en
couragement among the Liberals. The
result of the summons has been the is
suance of a Liberal document of like
character, which has been quietly but
thoroughly circulated. Mr. Smith, in
his circular, says it is impossible to fore
tell the moment when a division will
take place, and warns the government
supporters that defeat, even on a minor
point, will seriously weaken the
government, if, indeed, it does not
overthrow it. In this view he
urges the importance of full attendance
and -'pairing" in case of unavoidable
absence, as a means of sustaining the
policy in which all the government's ad
herents have acquiesced. This docu
ment, coupled with Mr. Smith's declara
tions in the house this evening, confirms
the theory generally accepted on Satur
day, that the government intends to
make an effort to carry the licenses and
other clauses of the local government
bill, which hitherto it has been thought
the ministry would abandon in order to
insure the passage of the main parts of
the measure,
NO GROUND FOR ALARM.
It Would Take Considerable Ton
nage to Transport an Invading
Force to England.
Lonoon, June 11.— In the house of
commons to-day Lord George Hamilton,
first lord of the admiralty, stated that
the calculation made in regard to the
number of transports necessary to ena
ble 100,000 men to land in England and
to seize Loudon by surprise, took into
consideration only the conditions that
such a feat was possible ; that the whole
army could disembark simultaneously,
and, when landed, that it would be ca
pable of rapid movement. The esti
mate that ships with a gross tonnage of
45.000 tons would be required for trans
porting the invading force, he said, was
on the assumption that it would be
equal to three army corps comprising
cavalry and artillery. Mr. Childers
asked, seeing the interest which the
subject was exciting, that a detailed and
authoritative statement be presented to
parliament. Mr. Hanbury asked
whether the naval and military depart
ments had consulted on the subject. Lord
George Hamilton replied that data had
been obtained thirteen years ago as the
result of a joint conference, and prom
ised to produce those of the transport
department, which satisfied|him that the
tonnage referred to did not overesti
mate the preparation necessary for
landing such a force. Such an invad
ing force from the continent, he con
tinued, implied the distribution of the
invaders in ports hundreds of miles
apart, with a successful voyage of not
less than a week instead of a few hours,
and made without opposition from a
hostile fleet. * ri-ttl
W. H. Smith, first lord of the treas
ury, announced that the government
would proceed with the licensing
clauses in the local government bill.
Mr. Balfour, in replying to Mr. Glad
stone, declined to put on the table the
evidence on which convictions for boy
cotting had been obtained, and said that
the ends of justice were amply secured
through the superior courts, while the
evils of boycotting would be seriously
aggravated by publicity.

afternoon long before the guard of
honor and employed his waiting time in
walking up and down the boulevard
chatting with Sir A. Caron, Sir Fred
Middleton and his aide-de-camp. After
the guard had arrived Lord Stan
ley did something which no
other governor . before him has ever
done. He inspected the guard; He
then entered the senate chamber, where
the ceremony of swearing him in was
gone through. Replying to the civic
address. Lord Stanley expressed the
thanks of himself and his family for the
cordial welcome extended to him by the
citizens of Ottawa. He was glad to see
that citizens of Ottawa were animated
with loyalty to her majesty, whom he
characterized as becoming everyday
more warmly enshrined in the hearts of
the people after a reign of fifty years.
He understood the difficulty he wouid
have in filling the position which
had been occupied by a long list of
illustrious predecessors, none of whom
was more distinguished than ex-Gov
ernor-Geueral Lansdowne. Though only
in the country a few hours, he felt at
home, having already experienced the
hospitality and cordiality which had
made the name of Canadians proverbial.
Continuing, the governor-general ex
pressed the hope that his short ex
perience while secretary of state for the
colonies, giving him as it did a knowl
edge of colonial affairs, would prove
fruitful during his stay in the great do
minion.
AN UNPARDONABLE OFFENSE.
The Sultan of Zanzibar Neglected
to Reply to the Letter of Italy's
King.
Eome, June 11,— In the chamber of
deputies to-day the government made a
statement of the differences between
Italy and Zanzibar. The late sultan, it
appears, ceded territory to the Italian
Commercial company, but the cession
was subsequently partly revoked. The
present sultan, on accession to the
throne, wrote to King Humbert, who
replied to the communication. The sul
tan, upon receipt of King Humbert's re
ply, neglected the customary forms,
which was intolerable. The consul
was compelled to haul down the flag
and demand satisfaction. The consul
recommends that the satisfaction take
the form of a cession of territory to
Italy. He adds that the presence in
Zanzibar of representatives of powers
friendly to Italy is a greater reason why
she should obtain the satisfaction due
her. After Italy shall have been satis
fied, she will be able to examine other
matters in dispute between the two
countries.notably the question in regard
to the territory which was ceded by the
late sultan.

Pittsburg, Pa., June 11.— atro
cious outrage is reported from Fair
Chance, about miles from Unibntown. .
Samuel Humbert, an old resident of
Fair Chance, was assaulted by masked
men at his residence at midnight Satur
day and subjected to great tortures to
make him disclose where his money
was secreted. At that hour Humbert,
who lives alone, was aroused by a knock
at his door. In response to his inquiries
as to who was there the men outside
asked for a drink of water. When the
old man opened the door to comply with
their request he was seized and gagged.
Two ruffians then searched the house,
but failed to find anything of value,
whereupon they commanded their cap
tive to surrender his money and valua
bles. He insisted that he had no money.
The two fiends then built a fire in the
grate, and, drawing the old man up
ROASTED HIS FEET
until they were blistered and shock
ingly burned. Still the old man pro
tested that he had no money and im
plored them to release him. They
threatened to set the house on fire if he
did not confess. After turning every
thing in the house upside down and rip
ping up the carpets in their search for
money, they bound the old man hand
and foot and departed. Humbert, after
a desperate struggle freed himself and
gave the alarm. His neighbors quickly
gathered and organized a search party
to hunt the rascals down. The fugi
tives were tracked a considerable dis
tance, and have, it is said, been located.
The community is greatiy excited over
the outrage and if the perpetrators are
found, the chances are that they will be
treated to a dose of Western justice.

IT WAS A DELUGE.
The Rain Storm Swept Every thing
Before It in Northern Michigan.
Marquette, Mich., June 11.—Re
ferring to the great rain storm of Satur
day and Saturday night, reports come
in from different parts of the peninsula,
all giving accounts of the damage. The
storm appears to have been heavier at
or near Lake Linden than elsewhere,
although all the country for a hundred
miles each way was visited. The
storm burst like a waterspout. At
Calumet the Methodist church was
struck by lightning and a large quan
tity of water poured into a great Calu
met & Hecla mine before the miners
could be protected. At Portage Entry
the quarries are stopped, being filled
with water. Reports from Lake Linden
estimate the damage at 550,000. Nearly
every basement in this city is flooded
and an immense amount of merchandise
is damaged. No trains can enter the
town on the Hancock & Calumet rail
road on account of washouts.
All along the line of the Duluth.South
Shore & Atlantic there were heavy
rains, and several washouts are re
ported. At a point between Robinson
and Houghton passengers and baggage
were transferred by tug. While there
are many breaks in the track and nearly
every peninsula railroad is more or less
damaged, there has been no accident of
any kind, and the trains will be moving
on time again in a day or two.
While there is no means of approxi
mating the damage, it will reach
way up in the thousands. The people
of Norway, Mich., have special reason
to be thankful for the storm, however,
as but for its visitation the fire of Satur
day would not have left a building
standing. As it was forty-seven build
ings were destroyed. Aside from the
loss by fire, thousands of dollars' worth
of household goods, merchandise and
the like were ruined by the storm. The
people living in the track of the
fire, seeing certain destruction
before them, hastily threw their
possessions out doors in places of safely,
where they themselves were forced to
remain during the night. It was sev
eral hours before all could find shelter,
and in some instances women and
children were out in the pitiless storm
a long time. There are but two stores
left in the city, and the town is pro
visioned for no time whatever. The
people of Iron Mountain have sent
sufficient food to sustain them for the
present, however, and there is no
serious sufferiug.

THE COMPACT WITH CANADA.
Senator Gray Advocates Ratifica
tion of the Fisheries Treaty.
Special to the Globe.
WAsnixGTOX, June 11.— The greater
part of the day was taken up in the sen
ate to-day by the speech of Senator
Gray in favor of the ratification of the
fisheries treaty.
Mr. Gray spoke in favor of its ratifi
cation. The -~ j:".-: ,•
HAPPIXESS AXD nOXOR
of the country, he said, were involved
in the discussion. It could not be made
.to turn on the selfish wishes or pecu
niary advantages of a small number of
capitalists. Every treaty came before
the Semite with an enormous
weight of presumption in its
favor, and it would be a
dark day in the history of the country
when senators could denounce a treaty
as cowardly and lmmilitating. He said
that all the rights of American fisher
men in regard to Canadian fisheries de
pended on the terms of the treaty of
1818. It might suit the pui pose of the
senator from Maine to denounce now
the negotiators of that treaty. He
traced the history of the fishery ques
tion at length, and stated that the pend
ing treaty was a practical, sensible and
statesmanlike way of dealing with the
question. In concluding he said the
secretary and the negotiators of the
treaty were on the American side of the
question. Those who defended it in the
senate were on the American side. The
president was on the American side.
And the American people would
recognize the courage and self
sacrificing devotion to their high
est interests with which that
brave, honest, straightforward and
sagacious man had sought to serve
them. . If,in obedience to a party caucus
which sat with closed doors and kept
veiled in secrecy the real motives of op
position, the treaty should be defeated
by a bare majority, an appeal would be
made to the sober judgment of 00,000,000
people; and the brave and honest fish
ermen themselves, whose rights were
secured by this treaty, would be ap
pealed to. When Mr. Gray finished
Mr. Hoar obtained the floor, but, on mo
tion of Mr. Sherman, further considera
tion of the treaty was postponed until
Monday, June 25, and the senate at 5:25
p. m. adjourned. a . * . ;.

KAN SANS ARE IN ARMS.
A Railway Bond Election Promises

from Brig. Gen. Murray informing him
of the alarming state of affairs that ex
ists in Stevens county, on the frontier,
caused by a railway- bond election.
The towns of Woodsdale and Hugoton

bitter feeling has always existed, grow
ing out of a county seat fight. The tel
egram gives details of a shooting which
occurred in Hugoton. R. L.
Jones, the deputy sheriff, who
is a Woodsdale man, the constable of
Woodsdale township, and another of
ficer rode into Hugoton and attempted
to assassinate Sam Robinson and J.
B. Chamberlain, chairman of the
boaidof county commissioners. They
pretended to have warrants for the ar
rest of the parties, but instead of serv
ing the warrants by the usual
process,' they drew their revol
vers and opened fire upon the
marshal and the chairman of the
board. The fire was returned, aud the
attacking party retreated. One man
was seriously wounded. Both towns
are now armed to the teeth, and blood

Manitoba's Government Determined to

Iron Range Annual.
Special to the Globe.
Dcs Moines, 10., June Repre
sentatives of some twenty railways do
ing business in lowa will meet the
board of state railway commissioners
here to-morrow to protest against the
final adoption of the tariff schedule pre-
Eared under the new law. Judge Hub
bard, solicitor of the Chicago & North
western railway, stated to-night that the
adoption of the schedule would drive all
the lowa roads into bankruptcy within
a year, except three or four trunk lines
doing business in other states. The
tariff, he said, is 50 per cent lower than
the Illinois commissioners' tariff, and GO
per cent below the Nebraska tariff. "I
cannot imagine what the commissioners
mean," he continued. -'We cannot
peacefully submit to the confiscation of
our property, and yet if we resist the
provisions of the tariff the penalties in
curred are simply enormous, but we will
be forced to fight the matter in courts
as our only protection even though we
incur these penalties and the antagonism
of the people."
MAY GO TO THE "Q. M
Rumor Says That Road Will Se
cure Manager Allen Manvel.
Dame Rumor is again busy with the
name of Supt. Manvel, of the Manitoba
road, and it is asserted that despite de
nials the resignation of Mr. Manvel is in
the hands of President Hill, who has de
layed taking any action thus-far.
When it was first given out that Mr.
Manvel intended to sever his connec
tion with the Manitoba, it was under
stood that the position of vice president
and general manager of the Union Pa
cific road was held under advisement by
him, and that he was certain to be the
successor of Thomas Potter. Now, how
ever, another Story is afloat to the effect
that it is not the Union Pacific that is
the goal of Mr. Manvel's ambition, but
that he is to be made general manager
of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy,
relieving Manager Stone. Stockholders
of the latter road, it is said, have been
making matters pretty warm for
President Perkins on account of
the losses sustained by the recent
strike, and there is a disposition
shown to shift the responsibility upon
the shoulders of Mr. Stone, and it* is un
derstood that the dispute will culminate
in his withdrawal. One thing is certain,
however, and that is that Manager Man
vel's days with the Manitoba are num
bered, and his resignation is entirely
voluntary and with a view to improving
his condition in a financial sense. The
absence of President Hill has been the
only obstacle in the way of an accept
ance af Mr. Manvel's resignation, but
probably in the course of a week or so
the agony will be ended.
As a manager Mr. Manvel has estab
lished a deservedly high reputation, and
not a detail escapes his watchful eye by
which the comfort of the travelling pub
lic can be enhanced, so that bis services
are very much desired by the Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy people.
