"After an exhaustive tour of the In
dian reservations in the Northwest, and
Montana especially," said Gen. Frank
C. Armstrong, of the Indian bureau, "I
am on my way to Washington, having
been out since last February.
"Simultaneously with my departure
from Montana comes the news of In
dian troubles growing out of the prac
tice of horse stealing, which an Indian
can never be taught is an offense
against the law. The latest outrage was
in the country near the camp of Plenty
Coos, a crafty old. Crow chief, but 1 do
not think that any of his band were
concerned in this trouble. It is a matter
of impossibility to keep an Indian's
hands off a likely looking pony, if
the opportunity is afforded him to
steal the animal, and get away safely.
Frequently roving bands of Indians,
sometimes not more than three in a
group, will start out on an expedition
of this sort and strike out among the
hill country. Then they will hover
around a camp untill nightfall, first
having selected the ponies or other
stock that they want, and will wait sev
eral days to accomplish their capture.
Sueh'seems to have been the case re
cently, and the Piegans, who are re
nowned for their horse-stealing propen
sities, were given a pretty severe lessen
by the Crows, whom they had despoiled.
As far as 1 could ascertain in my visits
to the different reservations, the Indians
are improving daily, and arc now only
waiting for a good crop as a reward for
their work in the fields tilled by them.
But from time to time it is to be ex
pected that these desultory horse-steal
ing raids will occur, and no human
power can prevent it.

Exposed at a Temprrance
Meeting in This
A Drummer Who Was Not
Fond of His
One of a Budget of Stories
Told on the .. :~ -
By a Representative Travel
ing* Man of New
' Temperance people turned out in
large numbers at the Grand opera house
last evening, attracted by the announce
ment that a cold water meeting was on
the boards, Rev. S. G. Smith being the
presiding genius. Col. J. H. Davidson,
the first speaker, said that he thought
the early efforts of temperance people
were similar to a man trying to ignite a
green backlog with a match or a candle.
To build a fire with a match, shavings
and chips were used. The wood had to
be divided up. In such away the liquor
traffic should be assailed, and this
was being done through local
option and restrictive prohibition. The
speaker then referred to the good that
restrictive legislation had done for St.
Paul, and concluded by reciting a piece
of poetry appropriate to the subject.
S. A. Haines, of New York,represent
ing the Commercial Temperance league,
was then introduced and spoke on the
thought, '"Lend a Hand." The infant,
he said, when trying to walk, like the
young man looking tor work, or the old
man tottering on the verge of the grave,
wanted somebody lo "lend a hand."
This was the motto of the league. Each
member of the league was pledged to
secure ten others. If he was a temper
ance man he would work for others. No
man was sure he was temperate himself
unless he was trying to make other peo
ple temperate.
Referring to commmercial travelers,
the speaker said that ot the 250,000 com
mercial travelers it could not be proven
that 40 per cent of them ever drank
liquor. Some people thought drummers
a hard lot. but there was no class of
men in the country that stood higher
than commercial travelers.
Mr. Haines then branched off on the
subject of personal liberty and became
quite humorous, telling a number of
stories as only a commercial man could.
Just before concluding he . sprang
a little sensation. He was speak
ing about the influence a man
might have and said, "I was recently
talking with a traveler who came from
Chicago last week. He told me that
coming up on the train he met a pleas
ant gentleman. After they had con
versed some time the stranger said to
the commercial man, '1 have a flask of
nice whisky in my valise; would you
like a drink?' The offer was politely
refused, as was a similar proposition,
made just before retiring. After reach
ing Minneapolis the traveler discovered
that tne person who had tempted him
to drink was a minister of the gospel.
"Yes," continued Mr. Haines with em
phasis, "I have his name in my pocket.
He is stopping at the West hotel, and lie
came up from Chicago, to preach in one
of the Minneapolis churches to-day,"

What Has Beeaa Done by the Coun
cil on the Subject.
Street sprinkling is something that
the average citizen will kick about. He
will kick if the dust is turned into mud,
if the slush. is allowed to become chok
ing dust, whether the city sprinkles tin
streets and assesses his property, or if
it 'has to be'' done by individual sub
When the question of the street
sprinkling assessments was before the
supreme court it was for a time doubt-
vi if the city would not be at the mercy
of the chronic, unreasonable kicker,
until Providence came to its assistance
and sent showers of rain lor seven
weeks. During the rain spell the su
preme court recognizing that if the city
didn't sprinkle the streets, heaven
would, "decided to overturn Judge
Simons' decision and sustained "the
board of public works by declaring that
it was a local improvement. .7
In accordance with this decision the
board of public works let all the sprink
ling contracts about May 15. for - i
tricts 2. 3, 4, 5, 0 and 0, and rejected all
other bids. The contract prices aver
aged about 50 cents per week for every
100 feet ' on both sides of the street,
making the cost to the property owner
from 10 to 15 cents for 40 and 50-foot
These sprinkling contracts cover
about eighty miles of street and avenue,
which include the business center, the
business portion of West St. Paul, and
the residence portions of St. Anthony
hill and Dayton's bluff, Lafayette ave
nue and Central avenue sections, and
the West Seventh street quarter.
The districts which will probably not
be sprinkled arc Nos. 1, 7, 8 and 10.
District No. 1 is all that part beyond
Bock street, on Dayton's bluff; No. 7,
all north of Maryland street: No. 8,
Merriam Park; and No. 10, all West St.
Paul not covered by No. 9.

A few nights ago a man burst into
the police station at Omaha. His hat
was; gone, his hair was disheveled,
and his eyes stared wildly at the
startled officers. His clothing was
bathed in blood. In one hand he car
ried a dripping carving knife, in the
other a gory hatchet. Walking up to
the chief of police, he said: "I want
to give myself into custody. I have,
committed a terrible crime, but I
couldn't help it. My wife's mother was
a Democrat, and I'm a Republican. We
got to arguing about the presidential
campaign, and my wife, who was more
of a mugwump than anything else, sud
denly became a Democrat, and took i
sides with her mother. This was more
than 1 could stand. I killed them
both, and fatally injured my only child,
a bright little girl of six years."
The chief of police stretched, rubbed
his eyes, and looked indignant. "Git
out of here," he said excitedly' "git out
of here, or I'll kick the stuffin' out of

Gladstone's System of Working.
One of the most strangely marked
traits of Mr. Gladstone's character, says
the London Star, is the method and ex
actitude which he brings to bear on his
daily work. This is the great secret
which enables him to get through an
amount of labor which frightens ten
ordinary men. It is owing to the pos
session of this quality that' he is able,
in the midst of his arduous parlia
mentary toil, to write articles,
treating of such diverse subjects j
as the poem! of Hpmer, the early
Christian fathers and modern theology. |
As a trifling instance of Mr. Gladstone's |
curious habits of precision, it may be j
mentioned that he rarely opens a parcel j
without untying— cutting— the
string, tying it" carefully up and putting
it away for future use in a drawer
which is reserved for the purpose. His
papers and documents are also kept in !
scrupulous order by himself, so he can
lay his hands on any one of them at a
moment's notice. It is to his habit of
doing so much of his work for himself
.that the mastery of detail, which Mr.
' Gladstone shows on every subject with
which he grapples, is in a great measure
due. BbPSQi

During a recent trip of the City of

New York to Fernandina, an old lady
passenger, who was hard to please and
who grunted at everything and every
body about the ship, said to Capt. Wil
der at the breakfast table just before
reaching port:
"After all, captain, there's one thing
that is really good on this ship, and.
when I say a thing's really good I mean
it. Never saw better anywhere."
; "Glad to . hear you say so, madam,"
replied the gallant captain. . "We al
ways try to make things pleasant and
comfortable for our guests. But what
is there on this, ship you admire so

Neither of the Disputants Have Dis
cussed Christianity, Bat Indulged *
in Words. _' i l^f 1
A large audience was well repaid-*...**
their attendance ' at § the Grand*" opera**
house yesterday, morning by Dr. Smith's^
discourse. A deeper subject could not
have been chosen, and the issue between."
Messrs. Gladstone and Ingersoll "was
well defined: The text was from 'See-''
ond Timothy, iv, 14 and 15: "A-fex
ander, the coppersmith, did much'jjtil'^
the Lord will render to him according;,
to his works; of whom .be thou ware
also: for be hath greatly withstood four*
words.'" Dr. Smith said: to. v.~
The attention which has been" at
tracted by the series of religious 7;a'rti-.,
cles in the North American Review'
makes it fitting that they furnish a basis
for our thought this morning.
Such a debate has a very high intel
lectual interest on account of the great
gifts of the disputants. Mr. Gladstone
reasons out of his wide scholarship, and
with the consummate rhetorical arts of
which he is an acknowledged master
Col. Ingersoll was never seen to better
advantage in his unrivaled use of
English, his epigrammatic wit, and, as
with interrogation points, after which
easy fashion every subtle suggestion
takes on the form of an argument. The
fate of the Christian religion will not be
settled nor permanently affected by
such a gladiatorial exhibition. 777.7 V
Religion is a personal matter between
the individual and his destiny. Faith
and unfaith cannot watch like hostile
camps while their chosen leaders after,
mediaeval methods settle the strife by
single combta. ; 7.' 7
Notwithstanding its literary merit,
I confess that the performance of Mr..
Gladstone is disappointing to me. It is
not that he fails making answer, but
it is that the discussion is incidental,
negative and fragmentary. He cannot
get away from the corporation idea of
the Christian, church— that "great
Christendom,'' enclosing a ■•heavenly
treasure," is the thing to be defended.
The subject of immortality is pre
sented by Mr. Ingersoll in the following
fine passoge: "The idea of immortality
that, like a sea, has ebbed and flowed in
the human heart, with its countless
waves of hope and fear
and rock of time and.fate, was not born*
of any book, nor of any creed, nor of
any religion. It was born of human
a Tection, and it' will continue to ebb
and flow beneath '.the' mist and clouds
of doubt and darkness as long as love
kisses the lips of death." In reply to
this, Mr. Gladstone refers to faith iii
immortality among the Egyptians, and
states that the most powerful mind
among the Greeks, that of Aristotle.had
no clear conception of a future personal
existence. '.".77"
It will appear to any who are used to
the consideration of these questions
very singular that about the only refer- 1 .
ence to Christ that appears in Mr. Glad
stone's article is to defend Him from,
having called the chosen people a '"gen
eration of vipers," by showing that he" '
epithet was applied to the Pharisees' .7 '
Mr. Ingersoll in Ids reply was never !
at better advantage in the utterance of
epigrammatic untruths. But when net,
says, "If orthodox Christianity is true,
an Infidel has not the right to live,'" has (
he not forgotten the words, "Bless them
that curse you. do good to them that,
hate you?" When he says "The Bible
was never rejected by the cruel." does
he not forget the wholesale slaughter of ',
Christians by which the emperors or.
Rome sought to prove the untruth of
the gospel which the martyre preached?
lie declares that Jehovah established a .
religion "in which every temple was a
slaughter house and . '.
when it is well known that the Mosaic
ritual modified the sacrifices of Egypt
and of surrounding nations. lie fails
to discriminate between the legal code
and the religious precepts of Moses,
and cannot understand that a theocracy,
a government directly under divine
control, must regard idolatry as treason.
Mr. Ingersoll lacks most of all the
historical spirit. He judges Moses more
severely than he would Washington,
and ignores the thousands of years be
tween them. He expects .Joshua to be
as mild as Wilberforce, and to be laying
his hands on the shoulder of draymen'
like Bergh, forgetting that these last
are products of the gospel of love.
But Mr. Ingersoll, whatever else he
may have done, has not debated the
question of Christianity. Christianity
is the message and person of Christ. .
Briefly, there is but one God, revealed
to us by a ministry of light and love,
imposing upon us an unrivaled moral
ity, promising to usau immortality alter
When Mr. Ingersoll has time, let him
debate Christianity.
I cannot close better, than by a quota
tion from 'a recent speech by James ;
Russell Lowell, who is a typical Ameri
can, as Col. Ingersoll is not. "When
the microscopic search of skepticism,
which has hunted the heavens and
sounded the seas to disprove 7 v .'
has turned its, attention to human so
ciety and has found the place on this
planet ten miles square, where a decent
man can live in decency, comfoit anil
security, supporting and "educating his
children, unspoiled and unpolluted; a
place where age is reverenced, infancy
respected, manhood respected, woman
hood honored, and human life held in
due regard: where the gospel of Christ
has not gone and cleared the way, and
laid the foundation and made decency
and security possible, it will then be in
order for the skeptical literati to move
thither and there ventilate their views."
Its Bearing Upon the "World and
What it Symbolizes.
At Christ's church yesterday morning
Rev. Charles G. Andrews delivered a
sermon, taking for his subject, "Christ
on the Cross." He said that the cross
of Jesus Christ was a spectacle before
augels and men. It was the means of
making known for the first time by 'the : ;
church the manifold wisdom of God to:
the principalities and powers in heav
enly places. It testified beforehand the:> S
sufferings of Christ and the glory that
should follow. The family in earth and
in heaven have been named "Christian"
through the efficacy of the cross of
Christ. It was the groundwork of all
saving faith. It was love that gave
Christ to the world; that opened the
eyes of men and of angels; that pre
sented God in its likeness of human
flesh, and gave form and person to God,
whereby men and angels could for the '
first time look upon the Infinite and the '
invisible and comprehend his majesty. '
"The angels of God have learned to ' i
comprehend the meaning of the cross of
Christ," continued Mr. Andrews, "and
view it in all its grandeur, but we want"
to crowd the cross of Christ into our
narrow vision and squeeze its beauties
into our unlovely lives." The breadth
of the love of God, symbolized by the
extended arms of the cross, might
measure nothing until the lamb of God
was sacrificed upon it. Love springs
into action with angelic swiftness and
calmly to work in humble ''ministry,
showing the breadth and length and"
height of its mission by its 'constancy
and unswerving devotion. Jesus owned
•men a love as this. •'...;

' The mass meeting held yesterday at

meeting being under the auspices of the
State Sunday School association.
After brief devotional exercises, led
.by Rev. S. G. Jeffords, an address was
made by Hon. William Reynolds, of
Peoria, Til.,, president- of the Interna
tional Sunday School association. The
speaker touched upon the rise and
growth of Sunday schools in 'this and
other countries, and also expatiated
at length on their benefits and
influence as factors of moral progress.
R. W. Hare, of Chicago, was also on
the programme for an address, but, as
he was -unable to be present, the. time
was occupied by. Mr.' Reynolds. Music .
for the occasion was furnished by the

A Novel Place of Worship for a
The People's theater was used as a
place of worship for the first time yes
terday morning, and hereafter the con
gregation of the First Universalist
church will meet within the precincts
of a playhouse. The Rev. W. S. Vail,
pastor of the First church, occupied the
platform, and there was a large congre
gation, who seemed to be as much at
home in the new quarters as in their
former place of worship, on Wacouta
street. Several hymns were printed on
small slips of paper and each one was
furnished with a copy at the door. Be
yond this there was "nothing outside of
the usual service. Before announcing
his text, the minister said that at the
old church the prospect had not been *
very encouraging but they had now
leached a crisis, and by proper effort
would moot with success.
The sermon was an interesting one,
in which the pastor explained to the
congregation his conception of an ideal
Christian man. n*, >;: *;-

Special to the Globe.
Anoka, June 16.— Thomas Kiernan,
the oldest and probably the most de
voted follower of the Roman Catholic
faith in this city, first saw the light of
day December 15, 1800, in county Ros
common, Ireland.] Has been twice mar
ried. In 1835 he was wedded to Mary
Cranna, and it was not until Jan. 7,
1885, that he again had . the. marriage
ceremony performed for his benefit.
This time his affections were * placed in
the keeping of Mary. Larson, and they
live at present just northeast of the
railroad station. His first"., wife bore
him nine children; four are dead. One
little one sleeps. in England, and one in
Ireland. One son, Frank, lives at Rich
Prairie ; James resides in Becker county ;
Mary.the oidestdaughter.married James
Larkin and is living in Sauk Center.
John has been married three times and
makes his home in this city, while Ann,
the youngest girl, married William
Riley and lives on a farm near here.
His father, Patrick Kiernan, died eight
years ago at the advanced age of ninety
three. His mother, Bridget Cranna,
died when he was sixteen, \i_ed fifty
years. He had two sons in the war of
the Rebellion, .John, and Patrick who
enlisted when he was only eighteen;
but caught the measles and died at Fort
Snelling. The old • gentleman wanted
to enlist and go with his boys into the
smoke of the battle, but was refused on
account of his age. His early life was
spent working in the coal mines "dig
ging dusky diamonds,", for 11 cents a
day. The mine was across a mountain
three miles lion his home, and he
would frequently work eighteen hours
a day, preferring to work an extra shift
of six hours than to walk the long dis
tance home, He cut and bound wheat
in England for 5 shillings an acre. He
heard marvelous stories of the United
States where a follow could get rich as
easy as "falling off a log" and could
buy an acre of ground ford day's. work.
So he decided to immigrate. - "With his
little family, consisting of his wife and
two children he arrived at Quebec in
15*44; with just 2 shillings in his pocket.
He left Quebec after seven weeks, going
to Worcester, • Mass. Since then his
career has truly been a checkered one,
turning his hand to 'any honest work
and residing at Sennet's Creek, N. V.,
Spring Valley, Minn., Pleasant* Grove,
Llmstead county, where he re
mained until * '68. Then lived
on a farm between Elk river
and Princeton six years, when he moved
to this place. While at Spring Valley
he took up a quarter section of land, and
traded it for a quarter section in Ulm
stead county. After valuable improve
ments, he had an offer to sell for $3,150,
but through the intrigues of one Hatha
way, the purchaser, he only cleared .-JO
from the transaction. The piece is now
worth over $100 an acre. In politics he
believes in voting for the best man, irre
spective of party. He is a strong tem
perance advocate. He wears a little
silver badge bearing the letters C. T.
A. U. of A.,. which has been on his per
son for thirteen years, and during that
period has never touched a drop of any
thing stronger than tea or coffee. He
quit using tobacco when he was forty
years old, and feels, the change has
been very beneficial. He has been sick
but two days in his life, but is bothered
some with rheumatism. "Uncle" Kier
nan is seen making his regular trips
after his mail daily from - his home to
the postoftice, a distance of about a
mile. He takes pardonable pride in
watching the progress made on the new
Catholic church edifice which is being
erected in this city, for his religion and
his church are the two things nearest
his heart.

and other agricultural counties will
probably stand by him. Republicans,
who oppose him, say that by becoming
the candidate of the alliance he has ac- '
cepted the tariff platform of the Demo
crats. The facts are these: The alli
ance demands now, as it has demanded
in the past, thorough revision
and reduction of the tariff. In
its latest platform it says:
"We demand a radical reduction *
of the tariff. The Alliance officers say ,'
that the organization's platform of four :
years ago embodies the doctrine of the -
president's message. Mr. Scheffer
"heartily indorsed" in his letter to the
alliance's committee the alliance's
platform. That this is not a partisan
movement is shown by the attitude of a
majority of the people toward the tariff,
and by the statements of a Democrat,
very prominent in the councils of his
party, who says that the Democrats
would not be helped if Scheffer should
not be nominated by the Republicans
and should run on an', independent
ticket, because he would take with him
the German Democrats and because he
would have the support of the alliance,
which is composed of men of both
parties. It is probable that
run independently if the Republicans
would refuse to take him. The Minne
sota delegates to the Chicago conven
tion were at first inclined* to vote for
Blame, but now it is understood that
nearly all of them have come to the con
clusion that" Gresham ought to have,
their votes. Still, it is said by well
informed politicians that the delegates
are open to conviction and have not
finally made up their minds. The feel
ing for Blame is a kind of unreasoning
enthusiasm, for the people are not in
accord with him in respect to the tariff.
The feeling for Gresham is more reason
able, and is based upon a more thought
ful consideration of issues. Among the
farmers he is regarded as a courageous
opponent of the corporations against
which they have been righting. More
over, an impression prevails that he is
not a high tariff man, but favors such a
reduction of rates as would give them
relief without wholly withdrawing pro
tection from industries that have en
joyed it.
There does not seem to be much room
for free trade ideas here. The- people
do not go so far as that, but, on the
other hand, it is not the surplus which
causes them to ask for reductions. It is
the ever present
ih*i*b;*.x OF TAXATION
which they feci and the conviction that
this taxation is making corporations
rich with the money taken from their
pockets. Many Republicans think that
Gresham must stand with them in this,
because they believe that he is with
them in their opposition to corporate
aggression which is not connected with
the tariff. The Democratic managers
propose to find out, so far as they can,
what the prospects are, and to be guided
by the results of previous canvasses and
calculations. If they shall be convinced *
that the state cannot be carried they
will not waste any labor on it.
A Soldier's Fortitude.
I crossed the ocean not long ago with
an English general of renown, who had
come home from the Soudan covered
with glory and honor, and with the Vic
toria cross to wear upon his breast,
writes a correspondent of the San Fran
cisco Argonaut. "In the very peal of his
triumphs he became conscious that a
malignant disease was fastening itself
upon him. His physicians pronounced
it incurable cancer of the throat, and
warned him that his doom would come
His resolve was soon taken. He had
faced death in the battlefield, but he
would not face the long, wearing grief
of an invalid wife and a delicate daugh
ter; nor should they see him suffer the
hopeless agonies of the months of life
that lay before him.
He told them that he was coming to
America to hunt buffalo. There are
English people who still believe that the
plains are full of buffalo. His speech
was already affected when he gave his
last yearning look at the shores of his
English home, but his family suspected
nothing. He died, some few months
after, up in the New Hampshire hills
among strangers: _
A Desperate Leap for Liberty.
Alton (111.) Special to Chicago Times.
Sheriff Jam ieson, of Morgan county,
was on the Wabash train en route to
Chester June 4 with five convicts in
charge. As the train was running
down the hill near Carpenter at fifty
miles an hour one of the prisoners made
his escape, running from his seat to the
platform and jumping off. His hands
were manacled at the time. As soon as
possible the train was brought to
a standstill and a party went
back to search for the body they ex
pected to find mangled and lifeless at
the side of the track. But they did not
find it at all. The only evidences of the
desperate leap were blood spots on the
track, a boot heel, a collar and a hat.
It was then believed he had crawled off
into some secluded place near the track,
but diligent search failed to discover
him. The sheriff has had the other four
prisoners lodged in Edwardsville jail
while he prosecutes the search for the
missing one.
