James G. Elaine's Portland Speech,
Aug. 15, 1SSS.
GOV. RAMSEY ON THE NOMI
"I see, governor, they are . talking of
making you governor of the state
again," said a gentleman to Gov. Ram
"1 would as soon go to heaven," was
the laconic reply. "Give me my choice
— a nomination for governor or an im
mediate summons to heaven, and 1 be
lieve I would choose the latter and* yet,"
he reflectively added, "how few of us
are ready to make the journey to that
THOSE DELAYED LETTERS.
"Why is it President Cleveland
and Gen. Harrison, are so slow in mak
ing public their letters of acceptance?. '
asks an impatient correspondent. It is
simply because they are both waiting
for the Republican party to formulate
its tariff policy. Mr. Cleveland
knows where his party stands, on this
question, but Gen. Harrison does not.
The Democratic majority in the lower
house of congress worked in wonderful
harmony with the declaration of prin
ciples adopted at St. Louis. But some
how there seems to be a fearful discord
between the Republican majority in the
upper branch of congress and the Chi
cago platform. It is probably with
the expectation of having * oc
casion to congratulate the Re
publican senate upon having become
a convert to the St. Louis platform that
Mr. Cleveland delays his letter of ac
ceptance. Gen. Harrison has still
stronger reason for delaying his letter,
because he doesn't know whether it is
fish, flesh or fowl that he is expected to
eat. The Chicago platform declared
for straight out protection all right
enough. Gen. Harrison has said
that he is with the platform. But
the Republican senators say that
both Harbison and the platform
are wrong, and they are going to
get up another one. If he were to write
a letter now, accepting a nomination on
the Chicago platform, he might have to
write another one two weeks later, tak
ing the first one back. He can't turn a
wheel in the canvass until he knows
what the party leaders in tin* senate are
going to do about it. No wonder that
the Republican nominee for the presi
dency is tired and has gone off for a
rest. It would weary any man to be the
candidate of such a vascillating party.
FEMALE "SUFFRAGE BALKED.
The women suffragists have lost their
grip on Washington territory", and con
sequently Candidate Belva Lockwood
finds the ground sliding from under her.
Washington territory had no electoral
vote, it is true, but was willing to lend
its moral influence to the cause of suf
frage reform, and accordingly the terri
torial legislature had granted women
the right to vote in territorial elections
and to sit on juries. But the supreme
court of the territory has decided in a
recent case that the territorial legisla
ture was exercising a power that it
never possessed. Washington is still a
territory, and must move along on the
schedule prepared for it by the general
government. The act of congress es
tablishing the territory limited the
right of suffrage to male citizens, and
the territorial supreme court decides
that the status of a citizen of the terri
tory having been defined by this act,
there is no power in the territory to
either enlarge or dimish it. Washington
territory women will now have to go
back to their washtubs and cradles and
let the men once more resume jury
work and do the voting-. -
Mr. Parnell is only one of the many
great men who make blunders. His
friends think it was a serious mistake
to institute his libel suit against the
London Times in Scotland. And his
friends are right about it. It was a
mistake on his .art to bring a libel suit
in any British court, whether in Scot
land, England, or Ireland, for it is al
most equivalent to suing his satajic
majesty and trying the case in Pluto's
dominions for a champion of home rule
to expect an impartial decision from any
branch of a government that is organ
ized for Ireland's oppression. More than
that, Mr. Parnell doesn't need vindi
cation by the tedious methods of the
law. In the estimation of the civilized
world, outside of Great Britain, he is
already acquitted of the Times' slan
derous accusation. _
THE WAVING BANDANA.
The first warm glow of 'the campaign
became apparent when the old bandana
was unfurled. It is, therefore, not a
matter of surprise that the first real sen
timent in the politic* of the year should
be developed when the Old Roman takes
the stump. If a man like Therman
cannot evoke enthusiasm, there -is no
use in a great name or a pure record.
His public life is an example worthy the
imitation of all who aspire to public
service, while his sterling integrity and
loyal devotion to the public interests
have won for him the admiration of- all
-his countrymen. Those who vote for
Thurman this year. will do it in a spirit
of. ; pride that they have the opportunity
to testify their admiration for -so great
and so good a _ man. ' Many . of
those . who shall vote against,
him will do it ■'. in a regretful
spirit that party affiliation and obliga
tion deprive them of the opportunity to
manifest their appreciation of such. a
high standard of- statesmanship"' as
Judge Tiiitrman has erected. It is no
wonder, then, that the sentiment of the
campaign radiates from the grand old
man, or that a fire of patriotic enthusi
asm should blaze along his ' route of
travel when he goes from one place to
another. " r .£.
SCHEFFER WORRIES THE
It looks as if Scheffer would get
the Republican nomination for gover
nor, after all. He certainly will unless
the ________ and McGill bosses con
bine against him. This they may do,
as the Republican bosses are opposed
o Scheffer, realizing, as they do,
that they can not use him. It is the
fear of his nomination that has given
the recent impetus to the candidacy of
Gilman. While Gilman . has not been
a favorite with the Republican bosses,
they know full well that, in the end,
they can use him. He is impecunious,
and they realize that. Once nominated
he must bargain with them for the sin
ews of war in order to have a hope of
election. .'-. ' ' .'.i '
- While Gilman is not a favorite of the
bosses, he is preferable in their eyes to
Scheffer. But their aim is not,
primarily, to nominate Oilman; it is
rather to bring forward a multiplicity
of candidates, create a deadlock, and
then spring a supple tool of the rings
upon the convention and boom him
through. But Scheffer, backed as he
is, may carry off the prize.
THE EXPOSITION OPENING.
Minneapolis has just reason to feel
proud of the opening of the third In
dustrial Exposition in that city yester
day. It was with some misgiving as to
the ultimate success of the project that
the people of our sister city inaugurated
the Exposition two years ago. But
whatever doubts existed originally have
long ago been dispelled by the im
mense success which has attended the
undertaking. Each succeeding year add
ed new triumph, and now the third Expo
tion opens under the most favorable
auspices of all. The display is better
than all preceding ones, and the indica
tions are that the attendance will be
larger than ever heretofore. As a means
of advertising the resources and devel
opment of this golden Northwest, the
Minneapolis Exposition has been one of
the most successful that has yet been
employed aud in ccnsequeiice merits
the patronage and encouragement our
people are disposed to give it.
THAT SAME OLD TRICK.
The ancient and oft-repeated accusa
tion against the Associated Press that
it is subsidized in the interest of the
Republican party finds additional con
firmation in the way it is now serving
political news to its patrons. When a
Harrison or Blame demonstration
occurs it is given precedence and all
i .other, news subordinated to that. But
when Judge Thurman starts out on a
triumphal tour to Port Huron all other
news is rushed in ahead and the Thur
man demonstration is held back for the
overflow, too late, in fact, to be used by
many of the morning newspapers for
their early editions. The prostitution
of any news franchise to partisan uses
is not only an outrage upon the rights
ot those who are served by it, but it is a
reflection upon that spirit of independ
ence which is popularly supposed to
govern modern journalism.
A JOINT DEBATE.
It is gratifying to the Globe to have
its views respecting the necessity for a
joint debate of the tariff question by the
two great leaders, Blame and Car
lisle, indorsed by so independent and
eminently respectable a journal as the
Philadelphia Times. , The Times says:
"The more joint debates we have the
better. There is every evidence
that the coming campaign is going
to be a great one for thinking men."
And what a novelty it is in American
politics to have a trujy thoughtful cam
paign—one from which partisan politics
is to be largely eliminated and the vot
ers are to be permitted to sit down in
sober earnestness to consider the great
• economic questions, such as are involved
in the proposition to reduce war taxation
and to put the finances of the country
on a peace basis, lf the leading news
paper in the protection state of Penn
sylvania advocates a joint discussion of
the great issue of the campaign surely
we of the Northwest have nothing to
lose by it.
The party managers in Indiana have
already arranged for a series of joint
debates between the Democratic and
Republican gubernatorial candidates.
Both Matson and Hovey have signi
fied their willingness to participate in
it. Congressman Milliken, of Maine,
speaking for the Eastern Republican
leaders, enters a protest against the ar
rangement upon the ground that the
Republicans have everything to risk by
a fair discussion of the tariff, and he is
frank enough to say that the Republi
cans have lost Indiana in advance of
the election by going into this arrange
ment. Well, if he is right in his pre
dictions, they ought to lose. A party,
that cannot afford to enter upon a* fair
public discussion of its doctrines doesn't
merit popular support. '"■-".
The Globe has no knowledge of what
arrangements will be made by the party
managers in this state, nor is it author
ized by any candidate to make or accept
a challenge. But it does here and now,
on its own responsibility, demand of tlie
Republican managers that when they
have made their nominations for a state
ticket to put forward their gubernato
rial candidate, let him- take the stump
to discuss the tariff question, and, our
word for it, Eugene M. Wilson will
meet him on a fair division of time
every day in the week, Sundays ex
cepted, until the day of election. The
Democrats are not afraid to talk tariff
to the people of Minnesota? Are the

crocodile variety. The : hand that he
took in the St. ; Cloud convention in
manipulating the" 'nomination for con

there is a pretty. well settled conviction

If Gen. Harrison was as economic
in his tariff views as he is in his travel
ing expenses he would stand a better
show for the presidency. He prefers to
carry a lunch basket to paying dining
car fare, and yet he advocates a : tax
policy that would extract from the pock
ets of the people .100,000,000 surplus an

with some people Whether it is their
own money or somebody else's money

Painful to Head.
Red Wing Republican.
It is painful to read in a St. Paul paper,
which advocates McGill's nomination, col
umn after column of discussion, charges and
denials over the question whether Gov. Mc-
Gill, being in need of the influence of Maj.
T. M. JN'ewson in 1880, did or did not prom
ise him an office. It ought not to have been
of much consequence, even in ISSO, except
to Maj. Newson, but it seems to have occu
pied both McGill and some of his ablest per
sonal assistants then, and now it eclipses all
other questions of McGuTs administration.
Granite Falls Tribune.
There is a feeling among McGill adherents
that that gentleman is doing nothing for his
renominatiou, but* is attending strictly to
business connected with bis office. Nothing
is more absurd and rediculous. He is doing
all that a shrewd politician can to secure del
egates and further his chances for the nomi
nation. To be sure, he is not putting money
into his campaign, but an army of appointed
clerks and officeholders are rustling for their
chief, knowing full well that their chanced
depends on his re-election.
Now that the Democratic rows, unneces
sary and mischievous though they were, are
over. Democrats should retire to the back
ground, take seats npon the upper bench,
and permit our Republican friends to enjoy
their own party cotillion. It is not improba
ble that if Democrats are attentive specta
tors, profiting by what they see and hear, we
may not only realize our past folly, but be
willing to unite in lighting the common en
emy instead of waistiug our energies and
spending our time in fighting each other.
Eugene M. Wilson, of Minneapolis, was
nominated on the first ballot by the Demo
cratic convention the 15th inst. for gov
ernor, and his name is spelled with one "i,"

tinel last week. Mr. Wilson is one of the
finest men in the state, a profound lawyer,
a scholarly gentleman, and an honest man.

Hints for Modest Young Men.
If the young man of to-day really
wants to grow up where his talents are
best appreciated he should not go West.
No, indeed, a much nearer-to-home
place needs him more. He should go to
the seashore. There is where the sex is
held in its proper esteem. It is said of
one house that it suddenly reached a
supreme height of prosperity by the
circulation of a rumor that twenty-five
rowing and bathing college men were
spending their vacations there. The
report wasn't true, but meantime lots
of charming girls had engaged board
and they couldn't go back on their ■
contracts. At a hop the other night a
dancing master introduced a quadrille
all of girls. The girls who took the
part usually danced by men were distin
guished by wearing • Tarn O'Shanter
caps with two feathers in the front. A
variation was introduced in the dance
called the Sister Anne figure. The girls
at a given signal stood still, and shading
their eyes with their hands, seemed to
pear into distance, while the orchestra
shouted, "Oh! Sister' Annie, Sister
Annie, do you see a man?" The big
trombone answered sadly, boom-boom
bah! and the dance, with a shout of
: -laughter, went on.

Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 22.— Re-"
publican state convention was called to
order- at the West side Turner hall
shortly after noon by State Chairman
Henry C.Payne. The hall was lavishly
decorated wit_*l ranting and pictures of
the Republican presidential candidates
and Blame, Grant and Lincoln.
Beneath the main gallery was a
bust-sized picture of Phil Sheri
dan, and another representing the
late general of the army upon horse
back, both heavily bordered with crape.
Across the upper arch of the stage the
inscription "America is good enough
for us" stood out in gigantic letters on
a backs-round of white silk with the'
stars and stripes for a border. The del
egates, who were distinguished by a tiny
American flag worn, on the coat lapel,
were escorted to the hall in a body by
the various ward Republican clubs
headed by a band. Philo Orton, of Dar
lington, was elected as temporary chair
man, and after a brief address by him,
the convention, without transacting any
more business, adjourned until 2:30 p.
m. In the afternoon the convention
nominated the following ticket: Gov
ernor, W. D. Hoard; lieutenant gov
ernor, Ernst C. Timme; state treasurer,
Robert B. Harshaw; attorney general,'
Charles H. Estabrook; superintendent
of public Instruction, Jesse B. Thayer;
railroad commissioner, Atley Peterson;
insurance commissioner, Philip Cheek,
in brief says: "The Republicans of
Wisconsin by their representatives iv
convention assembled heartily approve
of the nation of Benjamin Har
rison for president and Levi P. Morton
for vice president- as worthy of the
warm and united support of the Repub
lican party." Tney approve of the
platform adopted "by the national
Republican convention in June last as
outlining the policy best calculated
to maintain and promote the welfare of
the country and the prosperity of the
people of all classes and occupations.
With regard to the affairs of the state
they offer as the best guarantee for the
future and the strongest claim to the
continued confidence of the people, the
record of the present Republican ad
ministration and its predecessors. It is i
a record of the honest, econom
ical impartial • and judicious'
application • of sound business i
methods to the various departments of ■
the state government. In conclusion,;
this convention desires to express its i
recognition of the fidelity, ability and .
efficiency with which Gov. J. M. Rusk
has discharged the duties of his -re
sponsible office; honest, courageous and
just, he has. held the office of governor)
longer than any of his predecessors, and
has so borne himself as to win the re-,
spect and esteem of the whole people
irrespective of party divisions."

Special to the Globe.
New York, Aug. 22.— The Chinamen
of the city have organized in the inter
est of Harrison and Morton. The Chi
nese enters believe that Harrison's
election will open the country to their
countrymen. A meeting of the rich
• Chinese and the principal men among!
that nationality was held last night at
the Foss house, 15 Lott street. It was
stated at the meeting, so the story goes, ,
that funds were needed for the Repub- \
lican campaign. After a good deal of;
discussion it was finally decided to put
boxes around in the various Chinese
restaurants and Chinese laundries of
the city to raise money for the Repub
lican campaign fund. Several of the
wealthiest Chinese, however, put up
money at once, and it was reported that
at least .0.000 was subscribed and paid
on the spot. Tom Lee, it is authori
tively stated, carried the money up to \
Republican headquarters, at 51 Fifth ,
avenue, to-day. Tom Lee was deputy,
sheriff here and is believed to be the •
richest man among the Chinese resi
dents of the city. He is recognized as
the boss of the Chinese population.
The Republican national committee
have more nuts to crack than time in

fashioned notions about free whisky
and that a large proportion of them and
the members of their church who have
always voted the straight Republican
ticket will cast their votes this year for
Gen. Fiske. They state that they would
like to vote the Republican ticket if the
platform can be changed, but unless it
is, which is impossible, they can't this'

Why Prue Sits on Her Foot.
"I asked her," testifies a writer in
the Shenandoah News, "why she sat on
her foot, . and she told me the reason
with alacrity. A woman " acquires . the
habit when she is a young girl. Grow
ing girls do not take so much exercise as
boys, nor are they . naturally as
well able to bear the strain of
rapid growth; consequently their
backs ache. When you sit on a straight
backed chair, if you put a small bolster
at the edge of the chair it would tilt
you up so that the small of your back
easily touched the chair back, relieving
the spine. It is not convenient to carry
a bolster or a block for the purpose, and
so a girl tucks her foot under her leg,
near the knee, and throws herself back
in comfort." « V;-;

Prohibitionists and Proprietors of
Blind Pigs v Clash In Grant
Special to the .Globe.
Milbank, Dak., Aug. 22.— The
opening gun in the campaign in
Grant county* upon the license
question was fired to-day by the
arrest of six persons — William Shaw,
W. C. French, Joseph Gfroerer, James
Martin and George Skillman, of this
city, and Mathers, of Rivillo— run
ning "blind pigs." Martin and Skill
man are clerks in the Bradford' house,
the proprietor of which was pulled
a few weeks ago upon ..a
similar charge, but the case
was dismissed. The wholesale arrests
made early this morning created lively
excitement, which to-night had inten
sified to such a degree as to betoken
very bad blood before the end is
reached. The complaints were made
by a detective named E. F. Johnson, of
Minneapolis, who was hired by local
Prohibitionists. Johnson has been here
three weeks, and by playing the "hail
fellow well met act" ingratiated him
self to an extent that will doubtless
prove interesting if he should
ever show up in the com
munity again. The complaints
were made before A. L. Abbott
justice of the peace in Twin Brooks
village, eight miles west, who is a rank
prohibitionist, and issued the warrants.
A large number of witnesses were also
subpoenaed.- Soon after the warrants
were . gerved the parties interested, to
gether with a large number of citizens,
started for Twin Brooks. T. M. Pasco,
who is the city justice of Milbank, ap
peared for the defendants. Justice
Abbott refused to notify the district at
torney, but appointed R. B. Hassell, a
lawyer from Red field, whom the Pro
hibitionist had employed to conduct the
prosecution. As each ' defendant was
arraigned he pleaded not guilty, and
waived examination, and was bound
over to the district court in $350 bonds.
As soon as all six cases had been dis
posed of the parties were rearrested
upon a second set of complaints and
were bound over in 8500 bonds. A third
set of complaints was made and when
court adjourned at 7 o'clock two of the
parties had * been held in $200 bonds.
Motions were made by the attorney for
the defendants in each case for security
for costs from the prosecuting witness
and as regularly overruled. To. cap the
climax George A. Wood, who was very
active in behalf of the prosecution, asked
to have the witnesses held in bonds
for appearance at court. Amoug the
witnesses were several who have
heavy business and property interests,
but Wood swore that he did not believe
their interests were sufficient to keep
them here till court met. The statement
product d great excitement and for a time
it looked as though open hostilities
would commence. The justice then ad
journed court until to-morrow. The
detective, Johnson, did not dare to re
turn to Milbank to night, and he will
probably conclude that his health will be
improved by immediately skipping the
country. G. A. and G. L. Wood, who
have made themselves very conspicuous
in the prosecution, are the objects of the
bitterest denunciations by the parties
arrested and their friends, and it will
not be suprising if retaliatory proceed
ings ensue. The community is rapidly
ranging upon sides and a very bitter
fight is bound to result.

TO UNTANGLE THE SNARL
The Republican Committee Most Undo
IS MR. SCHEFFER GAINING?
How Republican Papers Are Trying to
Cause a Democratic Di
The action of a majority of the nine
members of the Republican county
committee who assembled in Min
neapolis last Saturday" at the
court house, in calling the primaries
on the evening of Aug. 30 to elect dele
gates to the county convention to
be held Sept. 14, for the pur
pose of electing delegates to
the congressional convention, has
caused such a row in the high moral
Republican party, that Col. Ed. Dav
enport, chairman of the county com
mittee, hos called another meeting for
this afternoon at 3 o'clock, to undo the
work which was done at the last meet
ing. The underhanded scheme which
was adopted last Saturday, is under
stood to have been instigated
by one of Sam Snider 's heelers
in the interest of his employer, who, it
is well known, is a candidate for con
gress against John P. Rea, the present
commander "in chief of the G. A. R.
Rea is said to have stated that he did
not wish to actively engage in a politi
cal campaign until after Sept. 12, at
which time his term of office would ex
pire, and the Snider men by this move
expected to shut him entirely out of the
race. When the action 'of the
committee, however, became 'gener
ally known among the Republicans of
the Fourth congressional district, to say
there was a row would be putting it
mildly, and the way the riot act was
read to Snider and his heelers by prom
inent Republicans, who threatened to
defeat him at the polls, in case he se
cured a nomination by any such under
handed methods as calling the primaries
two weeks before the time set for hold
ing the convention, caused even the
"Gogebic millionaire" to conclude that
he had gone a little too far in the mat
Col. Ed Davenport, chairman of the
Republican committee, also came in for
a severe roasting for his participation in
the Snyder scheme, and, as Col. Ed is a
candidate for the legislature, he has ar
rived at the conclusion that the best
thing he can do is to call the com
mittee together again to recon
sider its action. It is expected
that the entire committee, which
consists of thirteen members, will be
present at this meeting, for among the
loudest talkers against the • five mem
bers who voted for calling the primaries
April 30 are some of the absent mem
bers of the committee, who say that if
they had been present at the meeting
' their votes would have been recorded
with the four members who stood out
so valiantly against adopting such an
outrageous and villainous motion as
was adopted. Chairman Davenport is
also severely criticised for calling the
meeting in the secret manner in which
it was done, and in refusing to allow
any outsider in the room during tho
Developing in Hennepin— Unseen
Who are the Scheffer managers in
No one seems able to tell, yet the air
of Hennepin county is full of Scheffer
talk. Some exceedingly deft Roman
hand is working the wires, or handling
the boodle for the German
banker with telling- effect. While
Sam Nichols is making periodical
trips in the interest of Merriam
and while Loren Fletcher and John S.
Pillsbury, in strictly single harness, are
manipulating the ropes for McGill, the
work for Scheffer is quietly and system
atically going on in every quarter.
Two weeks ago, scarcely a Republi
can could be found who would admit
that Scheffer was worth considering.
Those same men to-day. defend him or
apologize for him.
Yesterday a prominent Republican
was heard to say, Scheffer would get the
county in the state convention. He
said the Republican's were becoming
frightened at the drift of sentiment,
throughout the state and would turn to
Scheffer in the end, as their strongest
"There will be a terrific fight in the
convention," he said, ".for Fletcher and
Pillsbury will die hard, but Scheffer is
.the coming man. McGill's machinery
and Mernan's money will be at a dis
count when . Scheffer's friends assert
themselves in the convention."
SALT IN THE SORE.
The Republicans Scheming to
Keep Up the Feeling.
There is still considerable soreness
among the friends of Dr. Ames over the
outcome of the state convention. They
are inclined to rebel against the will of
the majority. Just now they are iv the
position of being worked by the Repub
licans, though they blindly decline to
realize it. The wounds of the convention
are still open, and into them the Repub
lican press is throwing salt, and then
grinning over the wry faces it pro
duces. This is particularly the case
with Dr. Ames. Left to his natural im
pulses, which are generally straightfor
ward and right, he would 'already have
brushed away all feeling of resentment
and declared himself satisfied with
the result but for the efforts
of the Republican papers to rip
up the fight. These papers would be
highly pleased to see a division in the
local Democratic household, and they
will see it unless their plan is better
understood. In all conventions but one
man can The nominated for every office
and all other applicants must be disap
pointed. This is usual; but it is also
usual for each disappointed one to bow
to the will of the convention and join in
the work for the success of the ticket-
It is not only usual, but Democratic.

"Won't he? Wait until the city con

Doc Ames. He is a true blue; and when
