Everybody is talking- about the large number of "Want" Ads con tained in the GLOBE every day. That is why everybody looks in THE GLOBE For What They Want. VOL. X. COMSTOCK PLUM, The Moorhead Man Gets the Nomination on the Forty- Seventh Ballot. A Combination of Buckman and Comstock Delegates Breaks the Deadlock. Other Candidates Called In to Speak at Their Own Funeral. A Short Sketch of the Nom inee—Ris Views on the Tariff. Special to the Globe. St. Cloud, June 13.— Can you com prehend how great a district the Fifth is, and what diversified political inter ests are within its borders? If your mind can grasp the political complexity of these thirty counties— from St. Louis to Clay and Sterns to Norman— you will understand the influences that have made the St. Cloud convention— not one of the most bitter or exciting — but one of the most remarkable assem blages in the history of the state. Steams county is to the Fifth what Blue Earth is to the Second, or Goodhue to the j Third. Although giving a Democratic ! majority year after year, it has in Re publican * politics cleverly managed to | gobble the offices and to keep perpet ually in the field a goodly number of candidates. In the large sense of the word, Steams county has played the 11— O— G. It has in the field for offices or holding them: Governor, Gilman; supreme judge, Collins; district judge. Searles; reformatory, Meyers; United States senator, Gilman; and twenty ad ditional minor offices without doubt. Is it any wonder, then, that the opposition to Barto was strong and that, though heaven and earth were appealed to, his chance for the nomination was nil. * The big and ambitious counties of St. Louis, (liter Tail, Clay and Crow Wing, were too determined that it should it should not be for Mr. Barto to win. The Globe's predidtion that he could not was verified. His strength was heroic in its defense of his canvass. It never faltered, and faith like that pinned upon one good-natured, jolly man is a spectacle good to see in this age of lies and broken honor. Gilman must have understood from first to last that Barto could not win. He must have foreseen that Barto's victory meant just that much injury to any hopes he might have for the governorship or na tional senate. Yet, 1 believe, despite all the charges of crookedness made against him. that Charley Gilman re deemed the debt that he has owed Barto for years. Oilman could not have given him another vote if he had wished to. FRUITLESS BALLOTING. Up to Noon the Convention Fails to Name a Candidate. At nine o'clock the convention began balloting again. "Prepare for the twenty-tilth ballot," called Chairman Crombe, and the tired delegates had nothing else to do but to obey. Twenty fifty ballot: Barto "<*, I Buckman.. l7 I Comstock.. .2o Corliss 15 I Steams 15 | Buckman had lost the three from Mendota county, which went to Com stock. This was the only change from 'he last ballot of last night. Twenty ixth: "*arto 26 I Buckman:. ls I Comstock.. .2B Corliss 13 ! Steams ... 15 | Buckman lost two more to Comstock. Corliss lost the two votes of Traverse because the delegation forgot to vote.

Thirtieth— hundred votes cast and the ballot thrown out. Thirty-first— Nullity, 100 votes being cast. On the thirtieth ballot, which was illegal, Comstock had 29 and Buckman 15. The thirty-first, illegal also, showed Comstock 30, Buckman 13, Graves 10. The chairman, contrary to all parlia mentary practices, announced this last ballot, and D. E. Meyers solemnly pro tested against it with good effect. Thirty-second ballot — Barto 20 I Buckman. .l3 I Comstock. .29 Corliss 10 I Steams 4 | Graves.... 11 Thirty-third Barto 26 ! Buckman. 15 I Comstock. .2B Corliss... .15 | Graves 15 | Steams' name was dropped by St. Louis county on this ballot. Thirty-fourth— change, except a gain of one for Comstock. Thirty-fifth— change. Clapp, Howard, Flynn and other lead ers left the floor. Their absence caused comment and a change was scented. The next ballot was looked for eagerly. Thirty-sixth— No change, except Com stock gave Buckman a vote. The an nouncement was made that no break would be made until after the noon recess. Thirty-seventh— gained one more. I). E. Meyers rose and very seriously said : "We are making no progress, and I am going to make a proposition to the convention. 1 propose that we bring the candidates in and weigh them. The man that weighs the most to be the nominee. [Cheers and laughter.] R. A. Costello— l amend that by mak ing it brain weight. Meyers— l accept the amendment. >. G. Cash— Then I move that the nomination of Judge Steams be made unanimous. Thirty-eighth— No change except Co; stock falls to 2*;, Steams getting one. Thirty-ninth— Graves gained one, making 16; Buckman loses 2. Fortieth— No change. On motion of J.C.Flynn the convention adjourned until 2 o'clock with rumors afloat that Moses E. Clapp was to be brought out after dinner as a dark horse. Mr. Clapp denied that he was a candi date and said that under no circum •dances could he be one. COMSTOCK NAMED. i he Moorhead Man Gets the Plum in the Afternoon. At 2 o'clock the forty-first ballot was -•ailed. The only significant change in •his was the pasting of four votes by Uarto's friends for Knute Nelson, evi dently with the intention of heading off any new man. Corliss gained two ydtes, rising to IS. Forty-second ballot: arte 21 I Comstock.3s I Steams... 1 ■>uckman...lO | Corliss 18 | Graves 14 The Comstock men yelled and cheered at their candidate's gain, a lead not taken before by any candidate. Buck man had given him a boost. His chances began to blossom and the win ning goal looked in sight. The fortv third ballot set the Conistock men wild. Everything was going their way. The vote was: Hnrto 22 I Buckman...! I Comstock... 39 Corliss ....21 1. Steams ... .1 j Graves 14 Buckman had kept his pledge. He gave Comstock all that he could, and stood by his brother senator and friend. In the break-up Corliss managed to get up to 21. The ballot was a feeler on an agreement reached by Buckman and Comstock. If Conistock could win with what Buckman gave him, all right; if not, then he was to do all that he could for Buckman. The forty-fourth ballot brought no change except that Buekinan's one vote went to Corliss, who now stood at 23. Forty fifth ballot, no change. The Corliss and Barto men would not break, and the Graves vote from the unsalted sea was mischeviously coy and hung off. On the forty-sixth ballot, Barto lost two of his votes, which went to Conistock. The ballot was— Comstock.. 4l 1 Barto 20 1 Steams.... 14 Corliss. ...23 I Graves. ...14 | Buckman had done his duty to Com stock. Now it remained to be seen who would finish the contest. Barto on the forty-seventh ballot lost, and Corliss threw S away. The ballot was: Comstock. .so*l Corliss...* 15 I Steams 14 Barto 19 I raves 14 | Comstock was nominated. As the Globe said yesterday, he was Nelson's legatee. The West has beat the Zenith City. Judge Wait sprang to his feet and moved that Comstock be made the unanimous choice. The Otter Tail fel lows went mad over this. "Wait till the ballot is called, they yelled. Mason got on a chair, shouting: "Comstock cannot afford to be nominated in this way; de clare the ballot." Judge Wait withdrew his motion and the ballot was declared. Then J. C. Flynn moved that the nomi nation he made unanimous, and it was done with yells and whoops. The chair appointed Messrs. Bullard, Hartley and Cash a committee to wait on Mr. Com stock and notify him of his nomination. Conistock : came in, hat in hand, and was led to the platform, cries of "No. 1 hard" following him. He bowed and said: "Gentlemen, I cannot express my pro found gratitude to you for this honor. The canvass has been honorable and fair. I will try if elected to do mv whole duty." When the defeated candidates, Barto, Buckman, Steams, Graves and Corliss, took the platform. Barto spoke first: "I have had to do a great many tough things in my life, but I have just congratulated Mr.' Comstock heartily. I have heard of a man being at his own funeral, but it is pretty hard to ask him to preach the funeral sermon." . He paid a high com pliment to Comstock and predicted his election. Steams pledged St. Louis to him. Buckman did the handsome in his pledges of hearty support. Corliss and Col. Graves made happy speeches in the same vein. When Gilman was called on he took a chair, and said many kind words for the nom inee. He urged that he take up Nel son's tariff work and carry it out. The people and the country "demanded it. Then the convention adjourned sine die. THE NOMINEE. A Short Sketch of the Career of Mr. Comstock. Solomon Gilman Comstock was born May 10, 1842, in Argyle, "Me., and is forty-six years old. He attended school at Passa Dumkeag and graduated at Rents Hill from the same school that Alden J. E. Blethen, Loren Fletcher and W. S. Pattee came from. He lived in Omaha from 1807 to ISC.'.), and came to Minnesota in 1870, working on the Northern Pacific rail road as a section hand, and afterwards beginning the study of law at Moor head. lie has served in the house and senate of Minnesota for the last ten years, and is now a state senator. He was a strong high license advocate two years ago, and made himself solid with the Clay county farmers by securing for them the first reduction on wheat rates from Moor head to Minneapolis over the Manitoba and Northern Pacific. He is a versa list, and has always been a Republican. He was* county attorney of Clay county for three terms. He is now practicing law and farming. In ability he is not the equal of Nelson in many respects, but he is a persistent and hard worker. He is not brilliant, but steady. He said to the Globe this evening: "My position on the tariff is substan tially the same as Knute Nelson's. The bill he introduced for free lumber, sugar and the like 1 indorse. The tariff must be materially reduced. My can vass won't commence till fall. I am going home to farming." PROBABLY FOR MERRIAM. Senator Comstock Believed to Fa vor the Millionaire Banker. How Comstock stands on the gubernatorial fight is not known, but I hear that he is very likely to cast his fate with Merriam. The McGill-Scheffer combine alleged was that they tried to swing Otter Tail in their own interests, and got left very, very badly. Gilman comes out serene and smiling. Barto's defeat hardly in jures any of Oilman's many schemes. He says: "We are defeated, but not in a way that wounds bad. Most of the delegates are gone and the great fight over Nelson's shoes ended. The district committee will be named in two or three days. The last and final vote by counties was as fol lows : For Comstock — Aitkin, Becker. "Bel trame. Benton, two from Big Stone, Cass, Clay, Crow Wing, Douglass, Hub bard, Itasca, Kittson, Marshall, Mille Laces, Morrison, Polk, Wadena, Wilkin. For Corliss— Grant, Otter Tail and Traverse. Barto— Norman, Polk, Steams, Todd. For Graves— Carlton, Cook, Lake, St. Louis. For Steams—O ne from Big Stone. At 8 o'clock this evening the St. Cloud band serenaded Senator Comstock, and he made a speech to some 300 citizens standing in front of the Grand Central hotel. D. E. Meyers spoke also. PICKUPS From the Edge of the Convention and in St. Cloud. Gil Hartley, of the Duluth delegation, looks so much like our only Doc Quinn that I have been tempted half a dozen times to call him "Coroner," and ask him when the inquest was to be held over the remains of Judge Steams. Hartley of Brainerd, his brother, is clerical in appearance, even to his long-tailed coat. The speech of Daniel G. Cash in nominating Steams has been universally condemned. It was rank. He seemed to be endeavoring to cast .a slur upon everything connected with the convention. Aside from the fact that he is not an orator in any sense, his indiscretions made the. house weary. Col. Pressnell, holding a proxy for Cook count}', has been a constant friend of the newspaper boys, and i they are not go:ng to forget him. White, of- Moor head, lias had one interesting occupa tion. He has spent his time counting the baldheadsj.from Clay county who have gone into the telegraph office to admire the pretty operators tapping the keys. Fuller, of Morrison county, and an edi tor, has been a hard campaigner for Btickhian. In fact, most of the twenty newspaper man here are with him. The local scribes Jones, of the Times; Jones, of the Tribune; Mitchell, of the Journal-Press, and Macdonald— have lost no opportunity to make it agreea ble for the city reporters present., hospitality has been unbounded. DIED— HAIIMON Y. A Word Not Cultivated in This Section Among Republicans. "You are fighting Merriam," said Sam Nichols to the Globe, "because he is the strongest man. The Globe always does that, but you'll see before long what it amounts to. Merriam is the coining man." This lone word of sympathy for the needy millionaire cheered, me. I walked to the hotel window and saw • the stooped shoulders and white hat of Charley Gil man going down the street. I seemed to hear a cry "Vengeance is mine," and still I thought of Merriam. The men tion of his name provokes no enthusi asm, and the fear that if he is nomin ated, an independent candidate will take the field is in many men's minds. Talk of harmony in Republican politics in this state! Is it harmony that in spires the belief in the minds of most of the men here to-day that Gresham cannot be nominated? Is it for harmony that Gilman is in the field? Bo you call it harmony to hear of bolts and trades, men bought and sold, opposing views on the tariff, de nunciations deep and strong of this candidate and that? It's funny to hear Republican after Republican say, "Well, Minnesota ought to go 20,000 Republican this year." What, only 20,000, and she gave Blame 41,000? Straws show with the wind. Minnesota Republicans are not courageous — dashing this year. Their minds are filled with uncertainty and doubt, and no man of destiny is at hand to unify them. First District Democrats. Special to the Globe. Winona, June 13.— The Democratic congressional committee of the First district met at the Huff house this aft ernoon, and after some discussion fixed upon Aug. 1 as the time for holding the congressional convention. Rochester was selected on the second ballot as the place and 1:30 p. m. was designated as the time for holding the convention. There were present: Chairman. Dr. J. B. McGaughey, Winona: L. M. Gregg, Wabasha; 11. 1. Tolmie, Fillmore; A. J. Leach, Dodge; John Shea, Steele; J.W. Everstine, Olmsted; W. S. Krebs, Free born; Frank L. Randall, Winona, secre tary ami proxy for W. 11. Harris, Hous ton. Dr. McGaughey presided and Frank L. Randall acted as secretary. A letter was read from Judge Wilson favoring an early convention. Harmony pre vailed, and the members of the commit tee considered the prospects bright for another successful campaign. The sit uation in every county in the district is considered encouraging. MAY FORM A TRUST. The Millers Talk of It, and "Will Act "Later -On. Buffalo, June 13. The second day of the millers' national convention opened with a larger attendance. State Senator Arkel read an interesting article on bags and bagging. At the codclusion of Senator Arkell's paper A. A. Freeman, of La Crosse, read a very able paper on "Present Abuses— Sales of Flour and the Regulation of the Sale and Production." An effort was made at this morn ing's session to form a Hour trust, but no definite action was taken. The sub ject was discussed at length, but the general sentiment of the convention was that it would be 'preferable to or ganize a central office with paid officials where all grievances and troubles aris ing from cutting of rates, etc., should be referred. The subject will come up again at later sessions. The convention for two hours this evening debated a resolution to indorse the bill introduced by Congressman Hatch, of Missouri, making dealing in options punishable by fine and impris onment. The resolution was referred to the executive committee by a close vote. -^ CLOSING THE SCHOOLS. Interesting Exercises Yesterday at Fairbault, Special to the Globe. Faikbaui.t, June 13.— A meeting of the alumni of Shattuck school was held his morning. The alumni held a ban quet at the Brunswick last evening at which speeches, toasts and school reminiscences were indulged in. A large number of invited guests were in attendance at the concert and reception at St. Mary's Hall last evening, and all report a very enjoyable evening. At the Minnesota school for the blind the annual musical review and clos ing exercises were held. The pro gramme comprised a large number of pieces and the several parts were well rendered and enthusiastically re ceived by the vast audience present. There is a marked improvement from year to year of these unfortunate wards of the state, and it needs but a visit to this institution to -convince the most sceptical that the cure and education of the blind is one of the grandest works ot the age. Following is a list of gradu ates: Charles McGinnis, Louriston, Chippewa county; Frank Jackman, Minneapolis, Hennepin county; Edwin Constans, Mankato, Blue Earth county; Nora Caw. Chatfield, Fillmore county; Viola Whipple, Chowan, Hennepin county. After the presentation of diplomas, Archbishop Ireland, of St. Paul, delivered a very interesting ad dress to the graduates.

"„ * Washington, June 13.— tariff sub-committee of the senate to-day gave an extended audience to the wire rod and wire drawing interests. The latter advocate a reduction of the duty on wire rods to 3-10 of a cent a pound, while the wire rod men oppose a reduction. FAINT PAUL, MINN. THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE 14, 1888. JIM MAY BE A KNAVE, But the Florentine Mosaic of Maine Is Not a Fool. Chairman Jones Denies That Blame in a Letter Fa vors Sherman. Many Delegates Are Still Haunted by the Plumed Knight's Spook. * Celebrities Who Will Present the Names of the Several Candidates. Chicago, June 13.— 8y long odds the central' event among the crowds of poli ticians' to-day was the arrival of the noted recipient of Blame's letter from Florence, Chairman B. F. Jones, of the national Republican committee. Ru mors were thick that the big chairman, was the bearer of another epistle from the man over the waters. This letter, the reports had it, would prove a greater surprise and was destined to become even more celebrated than the famous manuscript with the Florence date. The reason given was that the new missive told the secrets of many people have tried in vain to — who, him self being barred, Mr. Blame preferred as the Republican presidential nominee. Right in the exact spot where the candidate is to be named, the floor of the convention hall, was the place where Mr. Jones *was found by a re porter, and consented to be interro gated. The rumors in circulation were told to the chairman in detail. Then the question was plumply put: "Mr. Jones, have you such a letter?" "No, sir, candidly I have not," was his reply. "No communication of a po litical kind has been received by me from Mr. Blame since the letter dated Florence reached me." . ' .": "Then you have received other letters from him, have you, but not on poli tics?" Mr. Jones hesitated: "Yes," here plied, "I have heard from him, but there was no word except what was wholly personal." "As you have no letter such as de scribed, Mr. Jones, a denial of the state ment that Mr. Blame has indicated to you his choice would be superfluous, of course?" "Precisely." "But don't you think yourself that the situation calls for a further expres sion from him just at this time when there is talk that the convention will get into a deadlock and the situation will be a call on him then?" "No, I don't think so. No person can ever approximate what this convention will do. The great majority of the dele gates will come here unpledged, and they may be able after conferring among themselves to nominate a candi date at the very outset. So the talk of what should be done in the event of a deadlock cannot be discussed." "Just one more question, Mr. Jones. These same rumors have it that Mr. Blame would not accept the nomina tion though it were tendered to him unanimously, and has so stated to you. Has he ever given any such informa tion?" "Most emphatically, no." This closed the interview. It had made two points measurably clear— that a new letter from Blame was not forthcoming, and that in the contingency of the convention ten dering him a nomination, the delegates would have to look beyond Chairman Jones to learn the result. LIKE BANQUO'S GHOST. The Spook of the Plumed Knight Will Not Down. Chicago, June 13.— Throughout the evening there was a strong undercur rent for Blame. There were many around the political headquarters, men from all parts of the country, who still expected that Blame was the coming man. They quoted his speeches in which he said that no man had the right to refuse the call of his country if it came to him with urgency and unan imity, and concluded that Blame would not be the first to violate his own prin ciples. None of the delegates, or men of prominence would commit themselves publicly on the subject, but the talk continued nevertheless. 'Ihere ,vas greater activity at the Gresham head quarters to-day than those of any other candidate. The register - was kept open, and every Gresham man who dropped in put down. his name— a good round numbei from Indiana. Many former residents of New York held a meeting in the Gresham rooms this afternoon for the purpose of boom ing the judge. They organized them selves into a committee to receive the New York delegation with all the hos pitality the committee could extend, and at the same time work in the inter ests of Gresham. They decided to call upon all former New Yorkers now residents of Chicago, to lend ; their active co-operation. The names of those who will make the nominating speeches were a subject of considerable inquiry to-day. Gen. Alger will be nominated by Col. Robert L. Frazer, of Detroit, a lawyer and old camprigner. Gen. Harrisou will be named by ex-Gov. Albert G.Porter, of Indianapolis, whom lndianians think is a dark-horse candidate. Sherman's name will be presented by Gen. Hast ings, attorney of Pennsylvania.- Judge' Gresham's name will be probably pre-' sented by Leonard Swett, who" pre-! sented Abraham Lincoln's name in be half of Illinois just twenty-eight years ago. SOLID FOR SHERMAN. \ Marat Halstead Says That's What Ails the Buckeye Delegation.'--. Chicago, June 13.— an interview this evening Murat Halstead said in substance that the Ohio delegation was solid for Sherman, "although," said Mr. Halstead, ".'there may be some crank who, desirious of making himself famous after the fashion of George Wil liam Curtis, may take it into his head to kick over the traces. Foraker will speak to Sherman." Mr. Halstead said he did not think Blame's name would be presented to * the conven tion, and he firmly believed that Sherman would be nominated. Sherman, he says, "will come to the convention with 300 votes, and the rest will probably come to him after a few ballots." - i The great objection to Gresham lies in the fact that if he were nominated he would have to resign from the bench and give Cleveland an opportunity to put in a Democrat to preside over Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. As for Depew, Mr. Halstead doubts if he Can carry the New York delegation, as Tom Piatt of that state is for Alger, and besides that Hiscock has a boom . of his own. Blame is really the man the New Yorkers want, but he was undoubtedly sincere in both his letters and it is only those who don't know him that are shouting for him. Mr. Halstead does not believe that either the Prohibitionists or labor party will cut much of a figure in the campaign and does not think that Henry George can deliver the labor vote in New York to the Democracy. Asked if he thought the Republican party had good prospects for success, he replied: "Yes sir; when the records of the campaign are written up they will show the country that the Cleve land episode in the Democratic ranks has been wound up, and a Republican president put into the White house." SOLID POR GRESHAM Texas Delegates State Their Pref erences. Emporia, Kan., June 13.— A portion of the Texas delegation to the Chicago convention passed through this city last evening and were interviewed as to their preferences. Among the number were H. C. and C. M. Fergusou, the delegates at large for that state, both of whom declared a warm preference for Gresham, and thought the entire dele gation would vote solidly for him. On being asked their choice for a dark horse, one said he was for Ingalls and the other for Hiscock, of New York. ; Hoffman Will Run. Chicago, June 13.— Francis A. Hoff man, Jr., of this city, who was nomi nated by the Democratic state central committee for state treasurer in place of Charles Wacker, who declined, has consented to run. Mr. Hoffman was ap pointed appraiser of the port of Chicago in 18S6 by President Cleveland, but re signed last fall, ai\d has since devoted himself to his law practice. An Enthusiastic Rally. Special to the Globe. Madison, Wis., June 13.— local Democrats opened the campaign with an enthusiastic rally to-night. Speeches were to be made in the chamber at the capitol, but the crowd rendered it nec essary to adjourn to the. outside. Ad dresses were made by Col. George W. Bird, Hon. S. U. Pinney, ex-Congress man Burr, W. Jones and others. 'pA A Unit for Blame. San Francisco, June 13.— A dispatch from Wamsutter, Wyo., states that the California delegates to the Chicago con vention held a meeting there to-day and agreed to act as a unit upon Blame as first choice, ami to cast their first vote for him, unless they decide upon a more available man after their arrival at Chi cago. Has Had Enough. • Chicago, June 13.— Chairman Jones said to-night that he would not accept the chairmanship of the national com mittee again. He intimated that Sen ator Quay, of Pennsylvania, might be his successor, and that Chairman Cooper, of the Pennsylvania state com mittee, was also a possibility. j r '.(?vf Here Is a Tip. Pittsburg, June 13.— Senator Fare well, of Illinois, passed through this city to-night en route to Chicago, In an interview he stated that Blame's name would probably be presented at the Chi cago convention, and if nominated he would accept.
