The czar has suddenly and unex pectedly appeared In Poland, and much speculation is going on as to what he is there for.

THAT TREASURY MUDDLE. The taxpayers of the state will be in terested in the analytical review made by our Caledonia correspondent of Au ditor B-t-dDB-**- letter, in which the lat ter gentleman undertook to rescue the Republican party from the hole into which Treasurer Bobleter had pre cipitated it. The more this letter is looked into and discussed, the more ap parent becomes the fact that the Re publican system of public financiering is not only a dismal failure, but that if it is to be continued bankruptcy will be the inevitable result. Under Republican administration we have reached the point where an in crease in the rate of state taxation is an absolute necessity, it cannot be avoided. It will be necessary to cover the deficits which have already accrued, and to meet the indebtedness that has been in curred in a foolish attempt to bridge over the existing financial embarrass ments until after the state elections. This state of affairs has resulted from Republican extravagance, it is the old, . old story of what follows from one po litical party being continued in power too long. The experience of all state governments has taught the lesson that a change in administration at least once in each decade is essential for political purification. When one party becomes entrenched in power for more than ten years, extravagance and corruption fol low as logically as day succeeds night. It is something unknown in the history of political government that when a party once becomes corrupt it can purify itself. The only remedial application is a change of administration. it lias come to pass in the history of Minnesota that the remedial applica tion is badly needed. For nearly three decades the Republican party has had control of the state government, and it would be something strange if, within that time, the party had not passed under the domination of rings, and job bery would flourish its I green bay tree. The evidences of such conditions are to be seen in the legislative records, and nowhere are they more visible than in the lame explanation of I lie muddled condition of the state finances which the state officials have seen proper to make to the public. These are matters which must arrest the attention of the honest taxpayers who cheerfully contribute to the legiti mate expenses of the state government, but who do not propose to lie robbed of their earnings for the enrichment of the favored classes. The state officials ad mit that things are at odds and ends in the treasury department, yet, with a nerve that is almost paralyzing in effect, they only ask the taxpayers to give them another term in the management of the state finances and they will bring everything around all right. Is this a business-like proposition these gentlemen submit to the voters? Is it the way a business man at the head of a groat business institution would j deal with an incompetent accountant or an unfaithful subordinate? If the af- ! fairs of the concern got into a tangled ; condition through their instrumentality, -,,,.

That j would be the business-like method a business man would adopt. The taxpayers of the state are at the head of the state treasury, and the state officials are only their accountants and bookkeepers. The affairs of the con cern are muddled. The business-like way for the taxpayer*, to proceed is to retire the old clerks and put new ones at the books. -^b- GOOD TIMES. The rapid advance in the price of wheat will be a matter of sincere con gratulation to the farmers, not only in Minnesota, but throughout the North west. The extraordinary shortage in the European wheat crop, mention of which was made in the Globe a few days since, is, no doubt, one of the stimulating causes of this advance. Rut there isalso an impression that nearly all the wheat grown in the United States this season will be needed for home consumption, leaving but a com paratively small amount for export. If this opinion turns out to be correct, and the present condition of the market strongly Indicates it, it is fair to presume that high prices will prevail during the winter, to be followed by an ad ditional advance when the stocks are exhausted at the end of the season, and the squeeze conies. As previously stated in the Globe, the European shortage is estimated at 365,000,000 bushels, while the visible supply in the United States from last year's crop is only 205,000,000 bushels. These are conditions which give positive as surance of high prices for a long time to come, and they will go far to put the farmer in easy circumstances. He has been on the wrong side of the ledger so long that changed conditions will prove no less interesting from a financial standpoint than from the novelty of it. lie lias had more cause to complain of his hard lot than almost any other victim of the economic policy which confines the sale of our products to the home market, while, the standard price of his wheat is determined at Liv erpool. 'It is clear, however, from trade reports in nearly every department of business, that an era of prosperity is awakening all along the industrial line, and that the evil auguries of the Repub licans, which were to be fulfilled when the Democrats came into power, and when their irreverent hands were laid upon the tariff, have gone back to plague the inventors. The administra tion of Mr. Cleveland has stimulated industry, and won prosperous condi tions for the country. HEATING CARS BY STEAM. Under the law, railroad companies which are subject to the jurisdiction of the state of New York must heat their cars by steam on the Ist of November next, unless there be some reasonable ground for an extension of time. It is in keeping with the indifference which has been manifested towards a plan which largely insures the safety of the travel ing public in case of accident that, not withstanding the time they have had to perfect their plans, three railroad com panies have come forward and on vari ous pretexts asked for further time. It has been conclusively proved that rail road cars can be effectively heated by steam, and all pleas for delay in thus equipping them can only be looked upon as showing an unwillingness to incur the outlay which the change would necessitate. It is possible that if a similar law were passed by the legislature of Min nesota the same indifference and delay would be manifested here as in the East. But a requirement of that kind is none the less Imperative. The peculiar climatic conditions of the Northwest, the intense cold which ren ders heat of some kind indispensable — no matter at what peril to life from re sulting casualty— upon the legislature a grave responsibility in be THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SATURDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 29. \ 1888. half of the traveling public The fact that we ' have escaped so far from horrors similar to the terrible accidents In the East, the recollection of which even at this distance of time causes a shudder of dismay, is no guarantee of future escape. On the contrary, the philosophy of probability assures us that unless preventive steps are taken, the exemption will not be for long. The lightning does not strike twice in the same place, but it does strike contin ually, and we have no reasonable as surance that we are out of the area of its visitations. The railroad companies owe something to the traveling public, and the obligation to use all reasonable and scientific precautions against death by fire is the most binding and impera tive. ' _ - THE WAR TAXJ Among the articles upon which the war tax is still levied in the United States, are barley, books, bnttons, cheese, chinaware, earthen and stone ware, straw goods, India rubber, coal, cotton goods, prints, glassware, iron and steel, cutlery, jewelry, leather and leather goods, oils, salt, spices, boards, planks and deals, woolen goods, car pets, dress goods of all sorts and hos iery. This by no means completes the list; but we mention here the most in dispensable articles of every-day con sumption: everything to wear, to eat, and to make shelter is taxed on an av erage of 47 per cent. For a republican government to impose such outrageous exactions upon its citizens is enough to make every honest American ashamed. But there is gratification in the belief that the people are getting their eyes open to the iniquities of these war taxes, and that the Democratic party is now. marshaled lor battle under the banner of tariff reform, and under the leadership of a statesman who will not abate one jot or tittle of the lust de mands of a heavily burdened and long suffering people. The war tariff must go, and with it the trusts and monop olies it sustains^ and which it has built up to oppress labor in all its forms. The gigantic shadow of the war tariff, mul tiplying poverty and accumulatingdebt, darkens all the land. Its sinister shade is upon the people and their indus tries. It keeps the farmer in debt, the mechanic living from hand to mouth, the laborer in wretchedness and rags; and does all this that a few millionaires may grow richer, and that monopoly and trusts may wax strong and power ful, it is time to stop it. m PACT AND FANCY.

IT WAS A ROUSEr! Democrats Hold a Grand Rally at Fergus alls. Special to the Globe. Feugus Falls. Minn., Sept. 28.— Not ! many years ago it would have been im- j possible anywhere in Minnesota for > Democrats to have such a procession j and such a meeting as was held here to night. It was a rouser, and memories of it will linger long after the campaign is ended. A torchlight procession 800 strung accompanied by two bands, the drum I corps of Stanton post, ('. A. !!., and grand displays of fireworks along the i route and in the square in front of the | hall were the preliminaries of the meet- • ins. Everywhere as the procession ' , passed, hundreds lined the sidewalks, ' and rent the air with cheers, answered i by those bearing torches. Trans- I parencies laid special stress on the dol lar mark which stalks at the front of I Merriam's campaign, and these were ! the subject of the greatest cheering and the liveliest delight of the spectat- ' ' ors. Ihe opera house was crowded to , its utmost capacity, with probably 6o. ■] present, including a large num ber of fanners, who came here to attend the Park region fair The meeting was by far the largest in tlii* campaign to date, in spite of the fact that it was tire third consecutive night of political speeches in this city. The speakers. were lion. Daniel Buck, of Mankato, Dr. Robertson, of Grace ville, and Charles Canning, of the Fifth district. The applause at the points made by the speakers was so frequent, ( spontaneous and vehement, that it re minded one of the discharges of park ' artillery or s<_»e great battle. The i plain statement of Dr. Robertson that Merriam's dollars bought his nomination caused a wiiirwind of applause, lasting several minutes. The \ listeners knew it already, but were de lighted at the open and public declara tion. The greatest burst of cheering, however, came when the chairman. Mayor Raw-on, Introduced the last speaker, Mr. Canning. The first and principal address was by Mr. Buck, it was a complete refutation of the charges of Republicans against Cleve land and Democracy, and a logical cogent presentation of the tariff ques tion, lasting an hour, The somersault of the Republican leader-, in Minnesota on this question includes such men as Gordon _. Cole. .J. ii. linker, and other members of the Minnesota Anti-Pro tective league, was pointed out. Credit however, was given the Republican party lor having placed ice on the free list. Despite the length of Mr. Buck's speech, the close attention of his audience was held. Dr. Robertson followed with a ringing arraignment of the Republicau for their methods in Meriiain's nomina tion and a comparison of the records of Comstock and Canning was draws. It was then too late for Canning to make more than a few remarks, but the little lie said was impressive, logical and to the point. The way he roasted the mill ers, the railroads and extortion ate trusts delighted the audience, and the pre-eminence he claimed for the farming community over such masters, brought fourth a .storm of cheers. "No country can be prosperous under our system of .ailroads," said he. "be cause they combine to build up great centers of trade to the disadvantage the smaller towns and villages. J wish you to consider the reasons for the start ling fact that our farmers are so poor and our land at the same time so rich.'" The only reference he made to his op ponent, Comstock, was regarding the hitter's opposition to measures favoring farmers in the list legislature, par ticularly his opposition to the freedom of traffic bill. His speech here has un questionably made him a large number of votes. SOME COLD FACTS. Frank Hurd Talks Tariff Reform' 7- at Can Claire. Special to the Globe. Eait Ci.AinE, Wis.. Sept. 28.— Frank Hurd addressed an audience of _,000 people to-night. He said the issue of , tax reduction had been clearly defined by the president's message, and its im portance was forced on the attention of the people by the $100,000,000 of surplus money in the treasury, which would double that amount but for the pur chase of bonds at a high premium. Mr. Hurd made a magnificent appeal for tax reduction, the protection of the con sumer from the robbery of the present tariff, the destruction of trust by the removal of high tariff duties, ana the , extension of our foreign markets by the adoption of the free system of political economy. His speech made a profound impression upon the audience, which was composed largely of farmers and laborers. DIG UP, DEMOCRATS. More Money Needed by the Na '_ A.A- tional Committee.

MORMONMOUTHIN6S.:': The, Majority of the Utah Commission Files Its Report. Pretenses of Polygamists Are Exposed and Most Emphat ically Denounced. Gen. Benet Issues a Circular That Stirs Up Republi cans. Secretary Whitney Dismisses M a Clerk Whose Head Is Swollen. Special to the Globe. * Wasaington, Sept. 28.— G. L. God frey, A. B. Williams and Arthur L. Toinas, three of the five members of the Utah commission, have submitted to the secretary of the interior the major ity report of the coiumiss on ou affairs iv the territory during the past year. They renew the recommendation of the last annual report, that the territory should not be admitted to the Union as a state until such time as the Mormon people shall manifest by their future acts that they have aban doned polygamy in good faith and an amondment shall have been adopted to the constitution prohibitory of polygamy. The action of the senate and house committee on the petitions asking for the admission of Utah, the report claims, is in support of 'lie posi tion taken by the majority. The senate committee recommended as a condition of admission, that there should be undoubted evidence on the part of the Mormon people of the abandonment, of polygamy, and the house recommended the adoption of the prohibitory amendment to the con stitution. Roth political parties of Utah in their convention utterances, the re port adds, indorse the position of the majority. The report favors granting to the governor of Utah the power of appointing school superintendents; as under the" present form of popular elec tion, the schools are under the contkol. of the MoItMON CHL'BCH. Reference is made to the act passed by the legislature last December, but vetoed by the governor, providing for the distribution of the public schools fouedatlng the public, and public schools. A letter written in June last by the president of the church is also quoted, which expresses the opinion that if the children are left to the train ing they receive in schools, they will grow up entirely ignorant of those prin ciples of salvation for which the Latter Day Saints have made so many sacri fices. The Mormon people, the presi dent adds, generally desire to have schools where the Bible, the book of Mormon ami the book of doctrine and covenants can be used as text books, and where the principles of their religion may form part or the teach ing. The report concludes from these circumstances, that the Mormon church favors a policy which if successful, will prove destructive to the public schools system in Utah. The commis sioners also renew their recommenda tion of last year, that the governor ap point county officers. The opinion is expressed in the report that the work under the law of congress, with respect to the registration of voters and the conduct til" the election.-., has been well performed^ and very satisfactory. Dur- lit tue past j ear mere nave ueeu .i^in indictment.-, for polygamy and four con victions: :K*4 indictments for unlawful cohabitation and 23- convictions.

GALL AND WOKMWOOD. Election Returns That Are Nuts for Democrats and Tough on the G. O. P. Special to the Globe. Augusta, Me., Sept. 28.— The returns sent from here and Lewistori making the Republican plurality in Maine 18, --405 were mere guesswork. The claim of Blame on the night of the election that the state had given fully 20,0UO,and subsequent estimates of State Chairman Mauley placing the Republican plural ity at even a higher figure, have been badly shattered by the official returns received at the state department. These show the following vote: Republican, 79,404; Democratic, 61,349; Labor, 1,526; Prohibition, 3,121; scattering, 15. Total vote, 145,415. The Republican plurality is only 15.055, and the majority 13,303. At the September election in 1884 the vote was as follows: Republican, 77, --770: Democratic, 58.070; Greenback Labor. 3,147; Prohibition, 1,157; scatter ing, 283. Total. 140,436. Tiie Democrats have increased their vote 8,27°- and the Republicans 1,025. The Republican gain, as compared with the September vote of 1884. is nearly 2.1 per cent, while that of the Democrats is almost 5.7 per cent. A proportioeate gain in New York would give that state to Cleveland by over 21,000 plurality; Indiana by over 15,000; New Jersey by almost 9.OO0; Connecticut by 3,700, and Michi gan by 3,400. —*» THIS IS REASSURING.

Fernandina Quarantines Against All the Remainder of Stricken Florida. Special to the Globe. Jacksonville, Fla., Sept. 28.— A marked reduction in the number of new cases and deaths to-day, seems to justify the hope of our people that the worst of the epidemic is over, and that the situation will now gradually im prove. Eighty-five cases were re ported to-day, of which twenty six were white and fifty-nine colored. Deaths five. Total cases to date, 2,453. Deaths. 242. Col. J. J. Daniel is resting comfortably to-night and hope is entertained of his recovery. Mr. Baker, teller of the State National bank, who had been critically ill, is better. Among the honored dead is Dr. L. F. Eddy, of Louisville, who died at the medical bureau this afternoon.

The telegragh operator there is sick with th fever and the Nassau county board of health refuses to admit an operator from this city. Superintendent Dillon ordered the office closed, and no messages are received anywhere for Fernandina. All such messages sent here are forwarded by mail, ami in the present disorgan ized condition of the railway mail ser vice will not reach there under twenty four hours. This foolish policy of the board is strongly condemned here and will work great injury, if not ADD TO TIIK SI'FFKUIXO of the people of Fernandina. Surgeon Wise, United States marine hospital service, has inspected and improved the mail fumigating station at La Villa Junction, both as to location and the manner of work done. All mail and baggage going out of Jacksonville is as thoroughly disinfected there as it can be done at Way Cross. The cordon around the city is complete and sufficiently strong to prevent bands of negroes from forcing themselves in. No one will be allowed to enter the city without a pass from the authorities.

SHELTERED IN CANADA. Forger Foster's Stealings Swelled to $176,000. New Yokk, Sept. 28.— The excite ment caused on the produce exchange by William R. Foster, Jr.'s, forgeries, had in no way subsided to-day, but was added to by the rumor that another of the mortgages had been discovered to be bogus. Whether the rumor was true or not the trustees of the gratuity fund of the exchange refused to say to-day. Trustee Alexander E. Orr stated that there was another of the mortgages sus- Sected to be bogus, but there had not een time to investigate it. The amount of the mortgage suspected to be fraudu lent was stated to be about $B,ooo. which would increase Foster's stealings to 1178,000. The only clue to Foster's whereabouts so far discovered points to the fugitive's flight to Canada. Should he be found there lie will be extradited, as the extradition laws cover his of fence. It is said the fugitive's father will refuse to make good the amount of the defalcation. The sum stolen was about 15 per cent of the fund, and un less the same is returned each member will lose about $1,200. Some of the mem bers said to-day that they were inclined to think that Foster was not in his right mind. His income was at least $10,000 a year, and at his father's death, it was said, he would receive about , jo,ooo. The trustees of the Prorlue Exchange Gratuity fund subsequently found an other forged mortgage, amounting to 525,000. It is believed that no further forgeries will be found. LATE MINNEAPOLIS NEWS.
