The Republican platform will bear the careful perusal of every intelligent person. The more it is considered the more ridiculous it seems. '** The Republican platform declared its hostility to trusts.

' Attorney Davis' really excellent speech seconding Gresham received the most vociferous applause in the convention. Minnesotians generally make their mark when they get the op portunity. qVociferious applause followed every mention of Mr. Blame's name in the convention yesterday. The del egates may not know who they will nominate, but they know very well who they would like to name. m We are surprised that Detegate Lanudon did not rival his colleague Davis' effort, and nominate Brother-in law Alger in fiery eloquence, lie missed a splendid opportunity of head ing off ''the young blood." The Republicans declared in favor of the admission of South Dakota, despite the fact that the people of Dakota have themselves declared against division. We fear that Judge, and would-be Sena tor Moody, had possession of the plat form committee's ear. Our Republican friends deny that the Democratic party ever restored one acre of land to the public domain, but that Republicans and Democrats jointly restored 50,000,000 acres. We fancy Andrew Jackson Sparks will laugh loud and scornfully when he reads this. THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM. The mountain has labored and brought forth a mouse. The Republican plat form adopted yesterday by the conven tion is about as chaotic as the party itself. It is eminently a campaign doc ument. All the old stereotyped and oft exploded assertions and charges are re iterated. The campaign drum is beaten with resounding blows, and, as in the actual drum, wind is the foundation of the noise. Let the wind out of either drum or platform and either would be but a poor, collapsed affair indeed. For the time being, the various provisions of ' this platform, fearfully and wonder fully made, may be passed over in order that attention may be given to one portion -in which the Northwest feels especial Interest— the tariff plank. It is here that the sophistry, the fatuity and blind obe dience to monopolistic dictation shine forth most conspicuously. Let us put the result of the Repub lican deliberations In the most compact form possible. It is that the high tariff must be maintained intact, and that if relief is needed it must come from the abolition of the taxes on whisky and tobacco. This is the entire ques tion in a nutshell. Clothe the declara tion in whatever language you will, that is the unalterable sum and substance of it. Taxed blankets, taxed tea, coffee, sugar and all necessaries.but free whisky and tobacco. Blaineismpure and simple. Almost the exact words contained in the Paris letter of the Maine statesman. What need of his presence when he can so surely rule his party though nearly 4,000 miles away?. The issue is indeed clearly defined. The Democrats will gladly : meet it. It is the cause of the monopolists, the 'creatures and creation of the high tar- r iff system against the people, who are being robbed. It is an issue, too, which the Democrats will not take up arms' against unsupported. Western Repub- . licans who have asked for bread and have been given a stone, who have de manded a reduction upon the neces saries of life and have been offered free tobacco and whisky, will . join them in the fight. No cavil or quibble can now be possi ble. It is right against monopolistic might. Is there any doubt ' that, the people will rally themselves under DemCCr-*iic standards in battling for the former? . A-i^J-' — ■ -■'.';: : i ISSUES, NOT MEN. ;-.;- The doubt and uncertainty, : which characterize the Republican conven tion, and the harmonious surety which marked the Democratic convention, are indications sufficient that this is to be a campaign of issues, not men. The Republicans raise the issue of a continued high tariff, continued taxa tion of the people on the basis of war time necessities, the continued favoring of the few at the . expense of the many. They bring forward the issue by the continued supremacy of the monopolists and the subordination of the people. They delight to raise the issue of the continuance of sectional feeling. Any one of the score of candidates who may be successful in securing the nomination must subscribe to this dec laration of unprincipled principles, and must constitute himself the special champion of these various issues. For the issues are the prime, the men who are to support them the secondary, con sideration. The platform comes first, the nomination afterward. The Democratic convention also brought forward a few issues. They were the reduction of taxation to the necessities of the government; the ele vation of the people's interests • above those of the monopolists; honest gov ernment; a government for the people and good will to all men. Two men were pre-eminently fitted to champion this declaration of the right, and they were chosen without bickering and con tention. The choice will be, therefore, clearly before the people; not as be tween the Democratic nominees and the Republican nominees personally, but as between the issues which they represent. The people have already given both strong intimations that their choice will not be on the side of the monopolists and money kings. .*»_ MONEY TALKS. One of the incidents of the convention yesterday was the effectual manner in which an audacious Minnesotian whose name history does not preserve — could it have been — effectually squelched the enthusiastic eulogy which one of the Sherman supporters was pronouncing upon his chief. "I will bet §1,000 to $900," said this reck less Minnesotian, "that Sherman won't get a chance to carry a single state," and there were no takers. The Sherman eulogy came to an ab rupt end. In the language of the breezy West, "money talks," but at this par ticular juncture it was not talking very loud among the Sherman contingent. •Nevertheless, money is talking in the convention. From the opening remarks of Millionaire Chairman Jones, whose millions have been piled up by the high tariff robbery; in the election of Monop olist Thurston as temporary chairman through the advocates of the Depew, Sherman and Alger booms, money has been talking in language unmis takable. The jingling of the dollars, has been plainly heard. It talks, too, in the plat form which iv familiar phrase demands that the methods whereby the monopo lists have been enabled to take millions , of dollars out of the pockets of the peo ple and put them in their own. shall be continued. Everywhere the voice of money is heard shouting forth the so phistical arguments with which it is hoped the people may be cheated and cozened. It is essentially a convention which represents the power of money ,as opposed to that at St. Louis which rep resented the power of the people. What choice will the country make be tween the two? The question is not difficult to answer. <« A POSSIBLE RESULT. It was but recently the Globe said that the only logical result of the Chi cago convention would be the reiiomina tion of Mr. Blame. Events now seem to be shaping themselves to give that assertion confirmation in fact. As the delegates are afforded oppor tunities for hearing his name spoken by convention orators, the strong under current of Blame feeling makes itself manifest, and there are not wanting those who de-flare with all possible emphasis that the man from Maine will be the nominee, leaving the question of his acceptance or declination to be de termined afterward. This feeling, too, has a good deal of basis to rest upon. In the first place, a majority of the dele gates, without doubt, favors Mr. Blame, and is only deterred from vigorous advocacy ot him by his own expression. In the second place, a deadlock among the candidates who are actually before the convention is almost inevitable. Then will come the opportunity of the bulldog Blame men, who have been clinging tenaciously to the idea of the ultimate triumph of their chieftain. The Blame idea will be found to lurk in the hearts of scores of others. All great gatherings are prone to do re markable things under the influence of overwhelming enthusiasm. The deadlock will continue. Some one will announce the name of Blame. The dormant Blame idea will spring into life in a moment. Declinations and Florentine letters will be cast to the winds. Amighty wave of enthusi asm will arise, and when it subsides Blame will be bound to be the nom inee. As to his acceptance? Well, his followers know their chief. Men do not refuse presidential nominations that are thrust upon them. That is what may happen. That is what is likely t o happen. AN EXCELLENT SUGGESTION. The Hon. Powell Clayton, of Ar kansas, is a man who has a fine sense of the eternal fitness of things, even if he does have the misfortune to belong to the Republican party. . . Sweltering in the heat of a Chicago June, unable to enjoy life Or observe the proceedings of the convention with the equability of temper and of temper ature necessary to thoughtful delibera tion because of the frightful heat, the Hon. Powell Clayton declared with the emphasis produced by profound conviction, that St. Paul is the proper place in which to hold a convention and that his vote would next time be cast for St. Paul as the convention city. Though we are in halt' doubt as to the honorable gentle | man's entire sincerity, since he com plicated his declaration by asserting that lie would vote, too, for the holding of the convention while the ice palace was in existence, still, if . he should visit St- Paul next winter,.: lie would be . con strained to admit that the ice palace • THE -SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: FRIDAY MOBNING, JUNE 22, 1888.— TEN PAGES. season is a very attractive one for visi tors. However, even if his declaration is not to be taken seriously, it shows that Mr. Clayton has no doubt about the superiority of St. Paul over Chicago as a summer resort. We trust, after his arduous labor of assisting in the selection of a Republi can sacrificial lamb is over, that Mr. Clayton, who, coming from Arkansas, is necessarily an expert in the matter of keeping cool iv the summer time, will '. come up to Minnesota and receive an ocular and physical demonstration of the state's superiority. When next November comes Mr. Clayton and his fellow-Republicans will find it quite chilly enough. GREAT IN OHIO. Great is the state of Ohio and the o*Sce>seeker is her prophet. : From the tiisc when the memory of man goes not back to the contrary the Ohio man has been noted for reaching out after everything in sight with , a vigor and a persistence that have be- " come proverbial. The advent of a Demo cratic administration was a hard blow to her hopes and a severe check to her rapacity and voracity, but the appetite remains whetted by long disuse. The Ohio man is to the fore once more, for he scents a possible banquet of official good things through the success of the Republican party. An exceed ingly remote contingency, it is true, but quite enough to rouse the Ohio man into wonderful activity. And he begins right at the beginning. He is de termined that a false sense of modesty shall not lose him anything. Conse quently he is making a rush for the head of the table. There are just seven of him out of a possible fourteen, scrambling for the vain honor of heading the Republican presidential ticket. It is an office carry ing with it pregnant possibilities, and that is enough to fire the Ohio heart. Sherman, Alger, Rusk, Foraker, McKinley, Allison and Harrison are ali present or original Ohio men. Each one has been or Is an office-holder. Each one wants to hold office again. Great is the Buckeye state and fecund as a political mother. >■»««■ THE FLAG EMBLEM. In an attempt to offset the signifi cance of the red bandana as a politi cal emblem, many of the Republicans gathered in Chicago have adopted a small American flag as 'an emblem. This is quite in keeping with the arro gant assumption of the Republican leaders. They would wish to intimate that they alone have a right to the national em blem, that over them alone, as a chosen people, must it wave, and that apper taining exclusively to them it may fitly be chosen as the insignia of their lead ers. The rest of the country will hardly agree with this insolent assumption. The flag waves over a united country, and is as much the property of the hum blest citizen as of the wealthiest tariff protected monopolist in the Republican convention who ostentatiously flaunts it. The flag belongs to the whole peo ple and not to one political party. It is the emblem of the whole people's liber ties and not a campaign banner. The people will rightfully resent such ap propriation. Our Republican friends will have to try again before they can devise a rival emblem for the red bandana, and the chances are that they will be compelled at last to fall back upon the bloody shirt, whose waving has been their ruin. THE MINNESOTA "KIDS." They Are Not Very Old, but They Claim They Are "Up to Snuff." Chicago Herald. Everything was serene around Min nesota headquarters at the Grand Pa cific yesterday. Col. Edwards said the delegation was not solid, but would cast eight or ten votes on the first ballot for Gresham, two for Alger, and probably two or three for Depew. The delega tion was strengthened yesterday by the arrival of Congressman John Lind, from the Second district, direct from Washington. Mr. Lind, though not a delegate, has no little influence. Gen. Washburn is also a prominent figure around this headquarters, and exerts an influence for Gresham that is certain to be felt. He is president of the Soo railroad, oue of the most prominent men in the state and lives in one of the most palatial residences in the West. The Minnesota delegates are called the "kids," as there are among them four under thirty-three, four under thirty live, two under thirty-eight and two under forty years of age. Col. Edwards, who, by the way, is the only one over forty, said: "Ties, they call our dele gates the kids, but we know how to vote and we shall elect our man. Why." continued he, "the name of the next president of the United States is written here," indicating his forehead, and meaning that he had it in his mind, when some member called out: "Go wash your face, colonel, and let us see wh it is." >«•■» Depew Detested. New York Times. Depew does not appeal to the men that will decide the election in this state, and he does . not even appeal to his own party, and could not command its full vote for several reasons. He may flatter himself that the Central railroad is "popular" with its custom ers. He is mistaken if he does not see also that it is thoroughly detested and hated by thousands of men who are compelled to do business with it from New York to Buffalo. Attain, he is not trusted as a party man. His going over to the Democrats in 1872. his silly sup port of Horace Greeley for the presi dency, his bitter speeches against the party and Gen. Grant, will not be for given. Still again, unfortunately for I By him, by most people Mr. Depew is not taken seriously. It is an injustice to him, for the acquisition of his high business position and his princely in come has been serious work, beyond doubt, but it is not by that that he is most known to the public, and there are very many plain people who associate him chiefly with dinners and with cham pagne and funny stories. In a. close contest a candidate with the other dis advantages we have pointed out cannot disragard such a reputation as this, and we fear that, in Mr. Depew's case, he could not get rid of it. We believe him to be an honest man, of infinitely better character than Blame, who has kept in his business pursuits as clear a con science as the nature of his work per mits, but he will not be a strong candi date. V «, . -■ The Story of Two Appointments. Boston Letter. A Massachusetts man who has some acquaintance; with Mr. Cleveland was j complaining to him one day of two par ticular appointments which he made in in this state. The president replied by I bringing out a pile of letters and I showed the signatures', asking the man i if they did not represent men who stood | as high as any iii business circles in j Massachusetts. , The visitor replied they did. "It was on the strength of those names, five for one man and four for another," said the president, "that I made these two appointments." Then he. drew from another pigeon-hole some letters complaining }hat he had appointed such fellows to office, and among their writers were these very men on whose. recommendations the ap pointments had been made. At first, said the president, he was inclined to j publish the whole correspondence, but i afterward he thought it would not lie a | dignified proceeding for the president I to be engaged in, and so he .determined [ to bear the whole brunt of the affair I himself. PREPAREDTOR BATTLE With the Stern Realities of Life Outside the School Room. Graduating- Exercises of the High School at the Opera ! . House. 'S ' I - An American Girl Wins the First Honors with a Prize Essay. J! : '•: ; o - ■i Fine Exhibition of St. Paul's Educational System Be fore Many Friends. i The graduating exercises'of the class : of '88 of the city High school took place at the Grand opera house last evening. No event excites the general interest that this does. The house was filled with the admiring friends and relatives of the graduates, who found in them a ' sympathetic and appreciative audience. The four boxes were filled with happy juniors, who read in the satisfied faces of their schoolmates on the stage the prophecy: "As you are now so we shall be." The stage was banked on either side with pink peonies, and suspended at the rear was the class banner of blue plush, oil which was painted the year of the class and the motto in- Greek, "From possibility to reality." "While the Philharmonic orchestra rendered au overture, the graduating class, teachers of the High school and board of school inspectors took their places on the statre. Before introduc ing the salutatorian Prof. Gilbert an nounced that the race for the salutatory had been a tie— a fact, he said, that was not so remarkable, as the two young la dies who came out even had settled the DIFFICULTY WITHOUT A QUARREL, Miss Laura . Grant preferring an es say, thus leaving the opening address to Miss Hope McDonald. Miss McDonald, who is one of the youngest members of the class, was girlishly attired in white China silk and with a corsage bouquet of la France roses. Her essay was gracefully deliv ered. In it she likened her class to the children who stand behind the window pane taking a circumscribed view of the passing world, and welcomed the friends assembled before them to take a last look with them throusrh the window school days had framed about them. James Frederick Austin followed with an oration, "Going, Going." His dignified bearing and earnest manner gave added weight to the eloquent plea he made for philanthrophy vs. selfish ness as an actuating principle of human life. Miss Rhoda Smith, charming in a white crepe gown with a corsage bou quet of pink roses, chose for the sub ject of her essay, "The Greatest Classic." She advocated the study of classics in general, claiming that it was equaled by nothing in developing the mind, and demon strated conclusively that "the greatest :• of all classics was the Bible." "The ' I title of scholar does not belong to the man who is unacquainted with it," she claimed, and asserted that the step ■■ taken towards introducing the Bible into the literary course of certain East ern colleges is but an evidence -of the j TREND OF ADVANCING CIVILIZATION. A pleasing variety was given to the entertainment by a waltz rendered (by the orchestra. After this Miss Mary Josephine Colter delivered an essay, the. subject of which was "At the Foot of Mount Parnassus." Her spirituelle. face, set off to advantage by the wrote Swiss dress she wore, made her poetic! effort doubly effective. She pictured a shepherdess at the foot of Mount Par nassus, constantly tempted by the im- ■ mortals to penetrate their cloud-hidden. ■ domain, aud as constantly resisting the . longings of her soul that she might tend her sheep and bring harmony into the lowly lives about her. Mr. John Herman Randall's oration, "The Beggars are Coming to Town," was in marked contrast to the dainty bit of imagery that had preceded it. Mr. Randall showed powers of satire that suggested Sydney Smith as he rep resented Washington the scene of a great feast where ALL THE DELICACIES OF POLITICAL FAVOR are served, and to which all the beg gars from this and foreign countries go trooping. He showed Russian nihilists, French communists, German anarchists drawing near and begging for some plum of a position— a small bite of power, and a "just and farsighted gov ernment" crying, "Poor brothers! Your cause is a needy one; we will bring the matter up before the next congress." He declared it was a frightful spec tacle, but that the ill they willed to ac complish would be CHECKED BY THE DOG, PUBLIC OPIN ION, that is always barking at the beggars as they go to town. The loud applause called forth by Mr. Randall's masterly effort swelled again at the appearance of Miss Laura Churchill Traut. The young lady was prettily attired in white China silk, with a corsage bouquet of La France roses. The subject of her essay was "Chilled." She expressed ironical sympathy for the chilling of young aspiration, and asserted that any aspiration worthy to succeed is only stimulated by all the chilling influences an unappreciative world can bring to bear upon it. ''Ridicule," she said, "is like a bracing wind, and satire has ushered many a needed re form into the world." Miss Alice Marion Bobbins was the ideal "sweet girl graduate." Her frail beauty was admirably dressed in a white embroidered mull, and she wore a bou quet of La France roses. The subject of her essay was "Telescope and Micro scope." Her delivery was charming one could not conceive of anything she did that would be otherwise. She showed the telescope to be the instru ment which enables man to more fully exercise his inborn tendency to rever ence things above him, and the micro scope, an aid to the develonment of REVERENCE OF THINGS BENEATH HIM.. An overture by the orchestra was fol lowed by an essay. "The American 0 " Girl," by Miss Mabel Fletcher Austia. : She captured her audience, both by her blonde loveliness, graceful manner and pith of her essay. She plainly an nounced her disapproval of the tendency of both pulpit and press to drag the American girl up for refor mation as often as once a year, attributing to her follies and vices that are not hers. She demon-' strated the fact that the American girl is quite as much a credit to her coun try as is her brother, and drew a paral lel between her and her foreign cousin to the disadvantage of the latter. •While American girls are filling lip. coLeees. foreign girls are still going to boarding school, where they gain a vast' amount.of finish. • f AND A VAST LACK OF KNOWLEDGE. | • She entered a plea for the society girl, declaring that "a good ; heart can beat just as strongly beneath satin : as be neath calico, and that there are numer ous society young women who can bake bread in the morning, read philosophy in the afternoon and dance the germ all night." She further said that girls do riot enter a profession because they are disappointed in love, they are ' not engrossed -with the idea of voting, and they are - not men haters. She predicted, however.that the ballot would one- day be theirs, though she insisted that their strongest influ ence would always be as social factors. In conclusion Miss Austin said: "The honor of the American woman, of her son, of her daughter, of her nation, rests with the American girl." • ■: The last oration on j the programme was "I and Myself," by Warren Lafay ette Wattis. * Mr. Wattis' effort was eminently -philosophic:!', and evinced depth of thought unusual in A YOUNG MAX JUST LEAVING SCHOOL. 1 and myself he pronounced the strong est influence felt in human life. --"'The best way to study a man is . study his relation to himself. The greatest gems of literature and art are the \ production of man's communion with himself .in solitude. A wise man realizes that his only possible rival is himself— it is the only factor that can effect the • eternal principle he embodies." : ■" , The valedictory address was delivered by MissLina Darling Weller, who pret tily and feelingly said farewell to - her teachers and classmates in the relation ship they, with last night's exercises, ceased to sustain to her. Following the valedictory, the orchestra played., a selection, while the judges, J. G. Pyle, R. R. Dorr and Miss May ' Alice Ban king . FIXED OX THE AWARD OF PRIZES.

The West Point cadets wear a rolling collar, which they must roll themselves and which has to be rolled in three dif ferent ways before it is rolled right. The other day one of the cadets com mitted the unpardonable offense of roll ing his collar twice. The sharp, prac ticed military eye of some superior de tected him and called him to account. A heavy musket was put into his hands and he was directed to pace up and down a given gravel walk right in the broiling sun, looking neither to the right nor tot he left, his rigid arms glued to his body, his head borne under a heavy helmet. Shortly afterward a free American citi zen, who had presumably come up on an excursion, and had become happy as to his soul and shaky as to his legs, chanced to pass by. His eyes lit on the culprit cadet and he stopped, leaned up against a tree and contemplated him. ;/;';.. * '"Buttons," he said, "wha'sh mazzer?" t The cadet neither looked nor an swered. "Le's have a zhrink!" the free Amter lean citizen continued. "I gotter botel —hie! right 'ere." .. The parched cadet just blinked, but that was all. He walked on, followed by the amiable man's eyes, and when he returned that way the man called out, "Halt!" He didn't halt. ■ . . , - ... "'Boutfashe!" - "Shouller armsh!" ■ "Lef w'eel!" To none of these commands was the slightest attention paid, and then the man ambled unsteadily along at the cul prit's side. . "Cully," he said, "w'y doncher give feller shivil ansher? Wha'sh usin bein' er prig? I got some er besht whisky ye'ver sawr. Got er right 'ere 'n my pockt.

When the starting signal was given at 12:58 the yachts crossed the line in the following order: Romania, Troubler, Hidegarde, Katrina, Seafox, Fanny, Adelaide, Acseult, Palmer, Troubadour, Dauntless, Grayling, Marguerite, Stranger, Thistle, Sachem, Whileaway and Raging. The Gray ling was the first to round the turning point at Sandy Hook lightship at 4:12, followed by the Katrina at 4:16. The other were from twenty to forty minutes behind.

Five thousand dol lars has been collected from merchants and manufacturers of New- York city alone. At this rate quite a respectable sum will be realized if Boston, Phila delphia, and other cities are assessed in proportion. The wonder is that these merchants and manufacturers, who are continually pleading loss and depression of trade, owing to demands of their working people, can scrape up enough for this fund without ruining their busi ness. ■ ' ; NE PLUS ULTRA. - Now, to me a spade a spade is.

Third District Republicans driven to Desperate Ends for Material. The Rice Movement Too Trans parent to Be Con cealed. The District's Condition Since the Fight Six Years Ago. If A. E. Rice is nominated for con gress in the Third district, and if Mer riam is nominated for governor, then there is a possibility that Senator C. B. Buckman will be presented to the state convention for the nomination of lieu tenant governor. - His chances of suc cess in getting the nomination would be lessened by the fact that he is not a Norwegian, Swede, Dane, German or Irish man. He is an American, Therefore, since the head of the ticket is also a native, two to gether would be taken as a "dead ly in s v 1 1" to every nationality that is not Amer ican. Mr. Buck man is qualified to fill the position, but he is an Ameri can. The withdrawal of Rice from the state contest, to take part in the con gressional one, would send the Repub licans flying for a new Norwegian to help the state ticket out. They might have difficulty in finding one. There are strong Norwegians fn the state in the political seuse, who are qualified to be leaders in great campaigns. The first is Knute Nelson, holding in his right hand 12,000 votes from his own cotuntryraen ;the second is A. Biermann, a Democrat, who in 1883 changed over 8,000 Scandinavian votes from the Re publican to the Democratic party. The third is E. A. Rice, who remains some thing of an untried factor, having fig ured in but one state campaign. In his own county, though— Kandiyohi— he is able to give the Republican ticket from 1.000 to 1,200 majority whenever it wants it. Mr. Rice is a far different man from either Nelson or Biermann. He has not the natural ability of the first, nor the acuteness of the second. He is like them in this, that he is self-made, has perseverance, and is thoroughly Ameri can in his tendencies. He is ambitious. That fact crops out all over him. He is proud of his present success, and anx ious to go higher. Any hesitancy he may exhibit as to accepting a congressional nomination would be based upon the question in his own mind, whether or no it would politically pay. If he remains lieutenant governor another term he is still a power in the senate and at the end of two years a ripe candidate for governor. He knows that he can be re nominated for lieutenant-governor with out opposition. He will decide as to which course he will take purely on the ground of self-benefit. Either way that he goes he is sure to be a strong candi date; much stronger on the state ticket than any of the gubernatorial candi dates named, save Scheffer. In naming the Scandinavian leaders above, Lind's name was unintentionally omitted. His leadership is confined yet to a district where there are not over 5,000 Scandi navian votes, but they count this year just the same as any other. * * While Rice ran well in 1880, the vote given for him as against the vote cast for McGiil, is not fair evidence of his personal strength. The malign in fluences behind McGiil must necessarily have affected the whole ticket some. The vote cast for McGiil and Rice in some of the principal counties is "given: McGiil. Rice Carver 792 935 Chisago 1,389 1,464 Crow Wing , 708 957 Douglas :.-..-'•-, 1,280 1,553 Freeborn 1,694 1,949 Grant 689 804 Kandiyohi 1,722 2,051 Meeker 1.377 1,508 Otter Tail 2,922 3,440 12,573 14,661 In nine counties alone Rice polled over 2,000 more votes than McGiil, which, carried out to the eighty coun ties of the state, would make his ma jority 17,000, what It actually was. He ran 15.000 odd votes ahead of McGiil, and his majority was 3,000 more than Hub bard's in 1883. A iecord of this kind makes him a conspicuous figure among those seeking office or whom the offices are seeking. * * . If the Strait forces in the Third dis trict are determined to nominate Rice and he consents, the fight between him ✓g^**--^ and Mac Donald will be a bitter one, and the outcome doubt ful. Mac Donald is stronger than he was two years ago. His congressional record is commended and v n less the voters of the Third district are for a protective tariff, there is no reason why he should not be re-elected. Wfte^.,.... Looking back to •** o STRAI7*;- the political records of ISB2, and comparing them with those of 1880, it will be seen just how the vote has changed in four years in the Third district. ; . .>r v Strait's vote MaeDonald's in 1882. vote in 1880 Carver 1,508 1,999 Chippewa 798 604 Dakota 1,371 2,236 Goodhue... 3,146 1,756 Kandiyohi 1.781 545 McLeod :. 1,087 1.619 Meeker 1,385 1,298 Renville 1,294 . 1,246 Rice 2,195 2.452 Scott 1,374 2,188 Swift 694 SCS 16.583 16.738 The counties that gave Strait his big majority in 1882 were Carver, Goodhue, Meeker, Renville, Rice, Scott, Swift, Kandiyohi and Chippewa. McLeod, where Capt. Reed lives, gave a small Democratic majority. The counties that elected Mac Donald in 1886 were Carver, Dakota, McLeod (where Reed lives) and Scott. Strait in 1882 ran against a weak Demo crat. Mac Donald in 18SG ran against a weak Republican. The district there fore is doubtful ground, and its future status to be definitely settled this year. If it goes Democratic this year there is no reason to believe that it will go otherwise thereafter for many cam paigns. If it goes Republican, then it will remain an open question where it will be in 1890. In 1884, when Strait ran against Donnelly, Goodhue, Kandi yohi and Meeker counties loved . him. He is not as strong now as he was then. In the light of these figures and the other fact that while in four years the vote of the district has increased from 24,000 to 32,000, the Republican majority has been swept out of sight, the motive for selecting Rice is patent. - * The same reason that nominated John Lind over three Americans; the same reason that gave Nelson an au tocracy in the Fifth district, is behind the Rice movement. It is not a recog nition of the abilities of these ; men, but a Republican bid for Scandinavian votes by the nomination of a Scandi navian. "Everything to get there," wrote a Republican to the Globe. That is the keynote to their campaiu this year in Minnesota. ":, • - - LESS TAX OR Take Your Choice From f^^-^&'r the From President Cleveland's Annual Message, Dec. 6. 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 in dustries, without danger to the oppor tunity 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. Democratic State Platform, Minne sota, May 17: Finally, that all taxation shall be equal and impartial. That our people shall have free access to the markets of the world to buy as well as to sell to the best advantage and upon equal terms with the people of other lands; that our power "to produce and ability to purchase shall no longer be confined to monopolized home market, influenced by combinations and at the mercy of pools and trusts. In conformity with these principles we specify as among the articles which should be placed upon the free list, salt, coal, wood, lumber, sugar, iron, steel, glass, binding twine material, drugs and medicines, all wearing apparel, car pets, and household goods, tools, imple ments and machinery used in agricul tural and mechanical employments and all raw materials consumed by our man ufactories. This is what we mean by revenue re form. The existing tariff was created and is now maintained by the aggregate self ishness of the particular interests which have so long and bounteously fattened upon its profits originally imposed as a necessary "war measure." It has since been perpetuated, and its enormities concealed by deluding a ciedulous peo ple with false issues and keeping alive the sectional hatreds engendered by the war. For more than twenty years the bloody shirt has protected "protection" from public scrutiny and popular indig nation. A combination of favored mo nopolists, so powerful and deeply inter ested in the maintenance of such a sys tem as not to be easily broken. Inch by inch the cause of reform must win it's way. We therefore welcome and in dorse the Mills bill, now pending in congress, as the first aggressive step in advance, which deserves the united sup port of all men who honestly favor revenue reform. This, Chicago, Also. Chicago Mail. . The Chicago man is keeping up his record for civility to the stranger within the gates. Last night I was going home on an Indiana avenue car. It was crowded. A delegate boarded the car while the train was in motion. In do ing so the delegate was almost thrown under the wheels. A Chicago man caught him in time to save his life. Then he gave the delegate his seat. "1 hat's all right," said the Chicagoan. • "You sit down and see the sights. It isn't every day you come to Chicago." When the conductor came around for tickets the Chicago man paid the dele gate's tare, for which the delegate thanked him and asked: "What can I* ever do to repay you for this attention?" "Get me a seat in the convention," the Chicago man answered. "1 have none myself." replied the man with a badge. "I am only an anti saloon Republican, and they won't let us in." "Poor man," said the Chicago gentle man. "I pity you from the bottom of my pocket. Get up and give me my seat." And the man would have done so but for a big saloonkeeper, who told him to sit still. m . How Will He Run? New York Tribune. The Democratic party, since the St. Louis convention, appears to be hope lessly divided on one question— in some respects, not a very important question, but one on which, neverthe less, Aye should think the party would want to come to some sort of an under standing. We refer to the question as to just how Thurman is going to run. A prominent Democrat of this state, in the course of a recent interview, said: "Thurman will run like a scared wolf." Another equally prominent member of the party, when cornered by a reporter the same day, made this statement: "I consider that Thurman will run like a steer through a cornfield." One of the leading party organs in Ohio says, edi torially: "There cannot be a particle of doubt but that the old Roman will run like a cat through a dog show." Another, an influential Missouri sheet, says in a double-leaded leader : "When it comes to the election, Thurman will run like a jack-rabbit." ' m A Rather Chilly Answer. Chicago Tribune. "I am looking for the Sherman head quarters," said an Ohio man who was wandering about the corridors of the Grand Pacific yesterday morning; "can you direct me to them?" "Yes, sir," was the reply of the un feeling Allison man addressed, "you will find them down stairs in the re frigerator." The Policy Too Honest. Detroit Free Press. The New York Tribune has started up its outrage mill and leads off with: "A gentleman in Louisiana writes," etc. Why not be honest and say: "The editor whom we have hired to write in fernal lies for the campaign says," etc.?

We are uncompromisingly in favCT of the American system of protection. We protest against its destruction, as pro posed by the president and his party, They serve the interests of Europe; we will support the interests of America. We accept the issue and confidently ap peal to the people for their judgment ■ Ihe protective system must be main tained. Its abandonment has always been followed by general disaster to all interests except those of the usurer and the sheriff. We denounce the Mills bill as destructive to the general busi ness, the labor and the farming inter ests of the country, and Aye heartily in dorse the consistent and patriotic action of the Republican representatives in congress in opposing its passage. We condemn the proposition of the Democratic party to place wool on the free list, and we insist that the duties thereon shall be adjusted and main tained so as to furnish full and adequate protection to that industry. The Republican party would effect all needed reduction of the national reve nue by repealing the taxes upon to bacco, which are an annoyance and bur den to agriculture, and the tax upon spirits used in the arts and for mechan ical purposes; and by such revision of the tariff laws as will tend to check im ports of such articles as are produced by our people, the production of which gives employment to our labor and re lease from import duties those articles of foreign production (except luxuries) the like of which cannot be produced at home. If there shall still remain a larger revenue than is requisite for the wants of the government, we favor the entire repeal of international taxes rather than the surrender of any part of our protective system atthe joint behest of the whisky trust and the agents of foreign manufacturers. ■ PECULIAR FRENCH METHODS Scaring a Murderer by Rcconsti' tracing His Crime lor Him. Paris Letter. The French system of "reconsti tuting" the scene of the crime, to use the technical expression, has again been successful in wresting a full confession from a hardened and obstinate crim inal. About a fortnight ago an old man was found hanging to a tree in a wood near Esbly. He was a stranger to the place, and the local author ities, concluding that he had committed suicide, had him quietly buried. A few days afterward they read in the newspapers of the mys terious disappearance from his abode in Paris of a respectable workman named Oudin, who was supposed to have been inveigled into an expedition to their neighborhood by Mathelin, an acquaint ance, who had led him to believe that he had found him a situation at the chateau of Montry, in the department of Seine-et-Marne. . Oudin's wife, who was beside herself with alarm.explaiued to the. police that Mathelin had in duced her husband to take £20 out of the savings bank as a guarantee was re quired, and that she was under the im pression that the two men had gone off to the country together. It was speedily ascertained that Mathelin had returned to his dwelling in the metropolis, and for several days had been spending money in debauchery, although previ ously he had been without a sou. Mean while the authorities at Esbly had communicated with the Paris police, and on the day that Mathelin was ar rested the body of Oudin was disin terred. Mathelin having persisted in de claring that he knew nothing of the affair, it was decided that he should be taken to the wood and that the corpse of the murdered man should be attached to tho tree as it was found, it being hoped that the suspected assassin would be moved by the ghastly sight to make a complete avowal. Early in the morning Mathelin, who had previously been attired in the clothes which he wore at the time of his arrest, was taken by M. Goron from Mazas prison to the Gare de I'Ust en route for Esbly. At the sta tion he was recognized by one of the railway employes as the man who had traveled with Oudin the fatal day, and ere Esbly was reached he confessed that he had strangled his victim in the wood with a rope concealed about his lierson, and had afterwards hanged dm to an acacia. The crime was thoroughly premeditated. Mathe lin spoke with the utmost calmness, and he displayed no emotion when he was led up to the corpse, which was laid on a plank by the side of the grave in the cemetery. A doctor in his pres ence examined the body and pointed out the marks caused by the rope, but Mathelin maintined his* careless atti tude, merely repeating in an off-hand way his account of the crime. There seems to be little doubt that but for this measure he would have persisted in his denial to the last. *»■ LADIES OF LONG AGO. The Surroundings of Court Belles of Other Days. Seriously, I can't help thinking, says Henry Labouchere in London Truth, that the wickedness of court 1 dies in the eighteenth century must have lain chiefly in their looks and talk. In judging of their morals, we should first glance at their surroundings, which were all hindrances to immorality. Their chairs and sofas appear to us (because ot the rounded lines in the me dallion back) luxurious. But just sit down on them if you are tired and want to 1011, and you will find that they were made for Spartans, and not for lazy, reclining sultanas or such like. You have to keep bolt upright on them. The complexion of the eighteenth cen tury beauty was not, you will also ob serve, for close inspection, it being artificial. And when there was a run for coiffeurs a la mode, the hair of a fashionable belle was dressed once in three or four days. There was a deal of suffering pour etre belle. To begin with, natural rest was eschewed, and, to save the powdered head from being tossed, it was not laid for nights on a pillow, the way to keep it in gear being to sit up in bed, propped up with pil lows. There was certainly no laisser alter in the long, stiff waist, tight as a drum over stays not hooked-and-eyed down the chest, as in our moral time, but only laced behind, and a perfect armor of buckram and whalebone. The stays in the eighteenth century were only re moved, because only removable by an abigail, once in twelve hours. No beauty you may depend upon it, ogled, and threw hot artillery into her eyes, but remained all right in her citadel of hoops, whalebone and sedan chair, al beit Cupids disported on the latter. There might have been Sir Charles Grandison kissing of fair hands and diamond rings, as loveliness in all her war-paint was boxed up in the sedan chair, or bolt upright on her sofa. But what of that? My impression is that there was free trade in talk. Sex was sunk, and what is known as after-dinner liberty of conversation was all around admitted. But there was no Zolaism.
