What the St, Paul Pioneer Press Has to Say About It. From the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Oct. 9. Cbookstox, Special Telegram, Oct. B.— The Democratic legislative conven tion of the Forty-fifth district was held in this city this afternoon, and was one of the most Harmonious conventions ever held in the district. OLE K. Lad mix, of Fosston, was unanimously nom inated for the legislature, and will un doubtedly be elected, as he is one of the most popular and intelligent Scan dinavians in this section of the country. To-night, after the convention, Hon. Charles D'Autbemont and I). B. Jonxsox spoke to an immense crowd at the opera house. Mr. D'Actremoxt's speech was confined solely to tariff, and his arguments were well presented and convincing. Mr. Johnson discussed principally state politic!*, and showed Mr. Meiikiam's boodle record in the most approved style. The speeches were most enthusiastically received, and the good seed sown will bring forth much fruit. ♦ Messiah is evidently not popular among the Methodists. ->*■ The sailing tonnage of the world is still nearly double that of steam. ■ Two thousand campaign orators have been turned loose in Indiana. -^ They are betting now $20 to ?12 that the Democrats will cany New York. m <~... i,- /-.. . ,w.../-.L- i\r!cs l lIAKI.I.S CAiOnill l/BAUIWWI 1-" ™ MUBFREE) is painfully lame; but her stories are not. m^ 'Democratic, control of the senate is necessary to carry out Democratic re form principles. — ■ SB* Farmers who prefer tariff taxes to farms without mortgages will vote the Republican ticket.

Sixce his return from abroad Mr. Blaixe has made a number of political speeches, but beyond putting the Re publicans in a hole by defending trusts and decreasing their majority some what in Maine, he has accomplished very little. If the American manufacturer is compelled to pay duty on his raw ma terial, he cannot compete profitably in foreign markets unless lie cuts the cost somewhere. And as he cannot himself cut the duty, he cannot compete unless he cuts wages. That is what he has been doing. The Democrats propose to cut the duty. FIGHT AGAINST SELFISHNESS. Having assured himself that New York was safely in the Democratic col umn. Gov. David Bennett Rill turned himself loose yesterday in the pasture of Benjamin Harrison. Al though it rained in Indiana, the Boosters turned out in threat numbers to hear the governor of the leading state of the Union, and the applause with which bis speeches were greeted was so hearty that there is really very little doubt about the way the majority of the votes of the state will be cast. The people of Indiana know shams when they see them, and when Mr. Hill, in half a dozen well-cut sentences, showed Blame's defense of the "American system of protection*' to be the merest clap-trap, the cheering was tremendous. As the governor of the Empire state tersely puts it: "Tariff revision is not tariff destruction. The Democratic party simply proposes a revision of -the tariff. The Democratic party in this campaign is fighting the selfishness of the country in behalf of the masses of the people." -•» DAKOTA'S SHOWING. A good deal of space is given in the Globe to-day to the annual report of the governor of Dakota to the secretary of the interior. It is full of information | of value to all who would keep pace j with the remarkable development of the ; great territory, and the discussion of • matters of internal economy presents : phases that demand consideration both i by the people and the legislature. The ! governor has evidently made a very ex haustive examination of authorities and statutes tearing anon the powers and relations of territorial legislatures and agents, and in view of the early session of the legislative body its publication in the Globe is timely. [faction of con gress is needful to determine the tax controversy, Gov. CHURCH lias done a good work in setting forth the facts in the case. The increase of population as shown in the report is in advance of the general anticipation, and illustrative of the gigantic strides it is making in de velopment and growth. The exhibit is a remarkable one in all the lines of progress and prosperity, and its official character gives it a value that does not | attach to much of the literature diffused from Dakota in the interest of special objects. -^ "Till: AMERICAN SYSTEM." "We are uncompromisingly in favor of the American system of protection," is the language of the Republican plat form. Rut why "American system?" France, Italy. Germany, Austria, Rus sia, Turkey and China have the same, and had it long before the American Republicans thought of it. England was for protection when the Gutted States were for free trade. It was the example of the free American republic that first made the idea of free trade popular in certain countries. At every step of the anti-tariff agitation in En gland free trade was bitterly opposed by tin aristocratic class interests, and assiduously supported by the laborers ana small business men. The success ful example of the perfect free trade be tween the states of the American union had much to do with inducing England She was frightened at her rebellious child's rapid growth under the free trade system. In this country no party now advo cates free trade. Hut in talking about the tariff question, it is. just as well to be exact and to remember history is his tory. The "American system of pro tection" is a historical misnomer. "European system of protection" would be a more appropriate designation. Hut whatever the origin of the system, the term ''American system of protec tion," as used in the Republican plat form, means the Republican system of protection for overgrown "combines" and "trusts." and no protection for the American people. The monopolistic influences that control the Republican organization may be uncompromisingly in favor of it, but the .people are not. It is well for worklngmen to remember that the statistics show nearly a million of highly protected laborers out of work this year; they are to remember that highly protected Pennsylvania la borers are working in the coal mines for 50 cents a day, and Children from seven to ten years of age are picking slate in the coal mines; that wages under high protective tariffs in Italy and Germany are about one-half what they are in free trade England; that a blanket, which is a necessity, is taxed about three times as high as a piece of lace, which is a luxury; that under our highly pro tective tariff the American ships now carry but 17 per cent, instead of 90 per cent, as of old, of our own commerce. mm ARTICLES NOT TAXED. The aim of the Cramers ot the Mills bill was to put on the free list articles that enter into the consumption of the masses. Some of these are salt, flax, hemp, lumber, lath, shingles, logs, jute, tin plates tar, turpentine, copper ore, soap, woolen rags and dyestuffs. On the other hand, the measure the Republicans framed with so much labor in the senate puts on the free list acorns, braids and laces for ornament ing hats, bristles, currants, dandelion roots, eggs, feathers and downs, opium fur smoking, tar and turpentine. The suspicion of burlesque may arise on reading this list, but it is the best the statesmen of the Republican party in the senate can offer. What delight must possess the poor man. struggling to build him a little house for his loved one-, to be told that in place of cheap lumber he may have free of duty laces to ornament the hats of his children. The toiling mechanic and laborer can not have clothing at low figures, but feathers and opium are to be put upon the free list. The sagacious senators have, after profound and protracted in vestigation, reached the conclusion that the infant industries have in half a cen tury so far advanced to the self-support ing stage that, without shattering the industrial fabric of the country, acorns may be admitted without tax. Surely the people will shout hosannas to such broad and beneficent removal of bur dens. AX ILLUSTRATION. In portions of the West further south, and in the lowlands of the Southern states, quinine is a household word, and its use understood by general experience. When the familiar drug went up to #5 an ounce, a heavy burden was imposed upon a large population. Is there, among any political circles, a demand for the restoration of the tariff upon quinine? Not even the most hide bound and extreme protectionist asks for a restoration of the tariff on this popular tonic. It is true that it is not grown in this country, and does not compete with any native product, but it is brought here in its crude state and manufactured. Under the tariff, there were but two quinine factories in this country, and they had a monopoly. Now there are five, and they compete with the world. This is but an in THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SATURDAY MORNING OCTOBER 13, 1888.— TWELVE PAGES. stance illustrative of a broad fact. . If competition can be successful in' this minor manufacture, it can also be in larger industries. The point to be reached -is just where the conditions can be so equalized as to put the manu facturer on as favorable terms as his competitor in any part of the globe; not to impose needless burdens upon the consumer to enrich the few. This is the aim of the Democratic policy. The problem is to determine just the tariff rate requisite to sustain home industries and remove oppressive exactions on the masses. -■''."'•.".;'■." FHEE IX'M.SER. It is noteworthy that among the Mich igan lumber manufacturers a revolution in sentiment to taking place upon the subject of maintaining the present tar iff duty. The Muskegon News reports that the leading manufacturers of Grand Haven, Spring Lake and Muske gon are in favor of free lumber, believ ing that the Canada trade 'would not af fect their business in any way. In an interview with a member of one of the most prominent firms, lie is reported as saying: our firm is a manufacturing one. There is only one firm in the Michigan pineries that makes as much lumber as we do. All our members are free tariff men on general prin ciples, believing that manufacturers in gen eral are crippled by high protective duties, and particularly by protective duties on raw material. * This expression is typical of the pre vailing feeling in the Northwest against continuing the burdens imposed by a war tariff for war uses. Indeed, the reeling seems to be equally strong in the States of Wisconsin, lowa and Min nesota. In this state we have no doubt, if a census of opinion were taken among the lumbermen, four-fifths of them would declare for lessened taxation on this indispensable staple. These men will render their verdict in November at the oils. It is stated that D. S. Hall has moved bis wife from St. Paul to a farm in the Third district, so he might ac quire a right to vote for himself this fall. For all the good the one vote will do him. bis family might as well have remained in St. Paul. Tin: only county that Judge Mac- Doxald's friends concede to his oppo nent. Mr. If 1. 1.. of St. Paul, is the county of Ramsey, in which the latter lives. Judge MacDoxald confines his canvass to the Third district. Chairman Quay protests that, not withstanding severe frying processes, the yield of manufacturers' "fat'! has been singularly inadequate to the amount of work the Republican party is doing lor them.

I WILKINSON A WINNER The Democratic Candidate in the Second Making: a Good Fi^ht. He Organized His Own Can vass Without Waiting For the State Committee. His Common Sense Speeches Take With the People of the District . ** Union Labor Men Somewhat Demoralized Through Don nelly's Withdrawal. Special to the Globe. Pipestone, Oct. This is a good section for one to obtain a striking ob servation of the rapid progress that our modern civilization can make when it humus itself in the work of making progress. Here is a section of country which has been settled barely a decade, and the new order of things has crowded so rapidly the old have not had a chance to get entirely out of. the way. On the one hand are the primal conditions of the aboriginal days; on the other, the eye is greeted with adornments which crown the highest civilizations of the old countries. I stood to-day at the entrance to an Indian tepee on an Indian reservation watching the no ble red man carve a pipe from the calu met stone, which is only found in this locality; and then, as I lifted my eye across a stretch of prairie a mile dis tant, it fell upon the beautiful town ot Pipestone, dotted with buildings made of the same rock from which the Indian was carving his pipe. Here was AN INDIAN ENCAMPMENT presenting the same picture that greeted the gaze "of the first white man who visited an Indian village. But how dif ferent the picture beyond tbe confines of the Indian town. Four steel-ribbed arteries of commerce intersect here. The Milwaukee system was the first to penetrate this new country, then came the Omaha, to be soon followed by the Burlington, and no.v the Manitoba has just finished its branch to this point. The new is here in all its grandeur, but it came so fast the old has not had time to get out of its way. From Heron Lake, where the Omaha branch leaves the main line, westward is a lovely j stretch of rich prairie, with only two things lacking to make it a God-blessed country— trees and Democrats. Beth are coming on, however. The good | seed has been planted and is sprouting. j The number of young timber groves to i be seen on the way show that these ; new settlers have not been inattentive to the necessity for tree culture. The enthusiasm which prevailed at SENATOK WILKINSON'S MEETING here last night was evidence enough that the Democratic leaven is working j in Southeast Minnesota. 1 wish that some of the Ramsey county Democrats had been here last night to have caught the Democratic fever which swept this j town. If they had been there would be i no bolting tickets in the field, and fac- j tional strife would be at an end. Morton S. Wilkinson is making ft magnificent canvass, but he is doing it all unaided. \ He was neglected by the state commit tee so long he finally determined to cut loose from it and organized his own canvass and placed it under the able ; management of .Judge Porter, of Man kato. who is doing as effective political work as it is possible to do under the circumstances. I have heard from St. Paul all the way down to this south western limit of the state a complaint lodged against the Democratic state committee that they send out too many kid glove orators and not enough ef fective campaign workers. THE COMMON PEOPLE . want to hear speakers who can talk to them in plain United States and not bore them with learned disquisitions on abstract questions of government which they can not understand, and which would be of no profit to them if they did. They tell a story here of one gentleman who has been billed by the state commit for speeches at several points in this section, but who has always failed to put in an appearance, and that his excuse for not doing so, was he spent a great deal of time In the preparation of his speeches, so he didn't think it right to waste his scholarly efforts on a crowd who couldn't comprehend his oration. It is possible, because Mr. Wilkinson has the faculty of taking his audiences into his confi dence at the beginning of a speech that he makes such an impression upon them, lie doesn't pose, nor does he affect a stilted air. He is an Abraham Lincoln sortof a man, possessing ability and having won . A NATIONAL REPUTATION. Still he is plain as an old shoe, ap proachable to everybody and cordial with every one. He goes around among the farmers, and it is "How are you, Mort?" here, and "How do you do, Mort?"' there, and a shake of the hand and a slap on the shoulder, and they are all good fellows together. That is good electioneering and good horse sense politics. And yet. when it comes to making a speech of real ability, brist ling with facts and arguments and glowing with eloquence, Mort Wilkin son eclipses the gentleman who thought his scholarly speeches were too valuable to be wasted on the yeomanry. The erstwhile backers, more recently sailinc under Union Labor colors, have a strong organization in this section, but the withdrawal of Mr. Donnelly has demoralized the organization. Most of them have swung into line with the Democrats, and probably all of them will be battling for Cleveland and Thur man by the time the election comes around. The Prohibitionists are not doing much work in this locality, although there is a fairly good sprink ling of cold water advocates who will vote for Fisk and Harrison. G. H. M. Republicans Rally. Special to the Globe. Sauk Center, Minn., Oct. 12.— Republicans held a rally to-night at their headquarters. Several speakers were on the programme. Among them were F. E. Searle, of St. Cloud, who was fol lowed by D. W. Bruckhart, of the same place, lie was followed by Dr. Post, of Painesville, and E. G. Mills, of St.Cloud. S. R. Bennett and .Frank Dolman also spoke a few minutes each. Isanti County Prohibitionists. Special to the Globe. Cambridge. Minn., Oct. 12.— The Prohibitionists met iv mass convention at the court house in this village yes terday. Alof Suttle was nominated for. chairman, and . Gunn r Nauman for secretary. Then they proceeded to nominate county officers" as follows: Auditor, 0. A. Hallen; treasurer, P. 11. Danielson; register of deeds, A. Daniel son; judge of probate, G. W. Nesbitt; clerk of court, L. M. Stolberg: superin tendent of schools, Gunnar Nauman. The following offices were left blank: County attorney, surveyor, coroner and court commissioner. There was quite a squabble over the register of deeds and clerk of court offices. Hans Engberg was unanimously nominated for repre sentative from this district. For com missioner, district No. I, Martin Nordell; commissioner, district No. 3, J. F.

Special to the Globe. : Winona, Minn., Oct. 12.— The Re publicans held their county convention to-day at Philharmonic hall, and placed in nomination what is generally con ceded to be a weak ticket. They made art attempt to capture nil the voting classes, and in their silly maneuvers they made a blunder of the whole ticket. The convention was called to order by J. A. Tawney. Dr. S. B. Sheardown was made chairman, and William B. Anderson secretary. James O'Brien, of Houston, was present, and got off a speech on protection at the opening session. After the usual routine business a resolution indors ing Dunnell was adopted. Herman Borth, a Third stieet grocer, was placed in nomination for treasurer. Ernest Katun and J. J. Randall hail a contest for auditor, but Randall was downed by the Third ward and Kaum nominated. Vincent Kupfer3chmidt, a Pole, was put on the ticket for register of deeds, as a bid for the Fourth ward. The nominations of Silas Braley, for sheriff; Theodore Searles, for judge of probate; William B. Anderson, for county attorney, followed. An unusual event in Winona county politics next transpired, in the nomination of a lady for office. Miss Jennie A. Burns, a teacher in the public schools, was named for county superintendent. The balance of the ticket was as follows: County surveyor, John B. Fellows; coroner, Dr. J. Q. A. Vail; county commissioner. First district, Faank Droskowski; Sec ond district, Geo. A. Lyons; Fifth dis trict, J. L. Finch; representatives, John Arnold Keyesand O. M. Olsen, Winona; P. A. Corey, Wiscoy; court commis sioner, C. A. Morey. Republican Intolerance. Special to the Globe. • Battle Lake, Oct. 12.— At the re cent Democratic demonstration in this village a flag was hung across the street, whereupon Orris Albertson, a promi nent Republican and formerly post master here, went to the owner of one of the buildings from which the flag rope was suspended and told him that unless that flag came down he would be boycotted by every Republican in town. The owner is also a merchant and a Democrat. He protested bitterly against such a wanton piece of bigotry, but Albertson swore it must be removed or every Republican in the village would withdraw his patronage, and finally the owner of the building gave in and the flag was taken down. The incident will have a very different effect from what it was intended by Albertson, however, for it has enraged every Democrat and caused a number of the Republicans here to declare that their term of service in such ranks is at an end. '• .' Cold Water Candidates. Special to the Globe. Austin, Minn., Oct. 12.— The Pro hibition county convention was held in the court house to-day. Nearly every precinct in the county was represented. It was by far the largest and most en thusiastic convention ever held in the county. A full ticket was placed in the field, as follows: Auditor, C. P. Glad den; treasurer, E.M. Edwards: sheriff, N. E. Dowers: register, D. Williams; probate judge, O. L. Gibbons; attorney, .1. McKnight; superintendent, Charles I Stessins; surveyor, 11. A. Brown;'cor oner, Dr. Johnson; representative for South district, W. B. Spencer: repre sentative for North district, O. E.

Winnebago City, Minn., Oct. 12.— i Col. Anson Wood, who has been im ported from the Empire state to instruct I the voters of Minnesota, and teach the great virtue of the G. O. P., on his de parture from here yesterday morning | was asked the question why so many : speakers were being sent from the East 1 into Minnesota, anil he said it was be j cause Minnesota was considered a very doubtful state. This shows the drift of public sentiment towards tariff reform. All Good Men and True. Special to the Globe.

He wore the uniform of the Life guards, and was attended by Count Herbert Bismarck.

The proposed displays in 1 the Vatican district were abandoned j At the castle of San Angelo, where the j Citta-Leonina commences, there was displayed in immense letters the follow | ing: "Welcome. Emperor of Germany, j August Guest of our King in Rome, the Unassailable Capital of Italy." Need less precautious had been taken to ! prevent an extremist demonstration ] while the visitors were passing • the Borgo district. The inhabitants ! evinced only patriotic sentiments. At j the Vatican Prince Bampolli received j the emperor and conducted him to the j pope's chambers. Two companies of Palatine guards were stationed at the entrance of the hall. The pope, sur rounded by his court, received tlie em peror, who BEXT BIS knee to THE pope. whereupon the. pope invited the em peror to a seat beside the throne.

Kmneror William sat between King Humbert and Queen Margaret. Prince Henry sat on the queen's right. King Hum bert, in a toast, said: "It is with deep pleasure and fervent gratitude that 1 here salute in the royal residence in the capitol of Italy the emperor— King William 11., of Germany. The pres ence in Rome of the head of a great na tion and a glorious dynasty, with which lam connected by ancient and stead fast friendship, is a* fresh pledge that tlie alliance between us will conduce | to the peace of Europe and the welfare of our people. I drink to the health of my august guest. His virtues give me confidence that it will please God to vouchsafe him* a long and glorious reign. I drink to the health of the em press queen and of the German army, that bulwark of Germany's glory." The Emperor William replied in German, saying: "From the bottom of my heart 1 thank your majesty for the warm words you have addressed to me. Your allusion to the alliance which we have inherited from our fathers finds in me a strange echo. Our countries, guided by great sover eigns, won their unity by the sword. The analogy between our histories im plies a perpetual agreement between our peoples; for the maintenance of that unity is the SOREST GUARANTEE OF PEACE. Our relations have found their most appropriate expression in the magnifi- i cent reception which Home has accorded tome. 1 drink to the health of your majesty, of the queen, and of the valiant Italian army."

During the return to the Quirinal there was another popular ovation, the crowd breaking into vocif erous cheers near the palace. The em peror's party met Queen Margaret go ing on a drive. The queen and emperor bowed to each other and exchanged a tew words. The weather continues splendid. Perfect order is maintained and business is almost suspended. Premier Crispi tel egraphed to Prince Bismarck as fol lows: "In the midst of the enthusiasm with which your august sovereign, the friend of our king, the head of a nation | allied to our country, has been received, j my deeply moved thoughts address themselves to your highness. 1 would that the echo of the . PLAUDITS THAT P.ESOI'XIJ IX P.OME could reach and tell you how much the Italian people love Germany, and ap preciate the friendship of a nation which, aided by your consols, has be come so great and glorious. May our union ever be thus cordial and intimate for the glory of the two dynasties, the welfare of their peoples and the peace of Europe." Prince Bismarck re plied: "I thank yon with all my ■ heart for having thought ot me at the time when your excellency is present at the meeting of our sovereigns. « Your solemn expression of the cordial friend ship between the two nations and con- j sciousness of having labored to con solidate that mutual friendship, consti tute a connecting link very dear to my heart between the brilliant festivities in Rome and this lonely dwelling which your excellency did me the courtesy to visit two months since."
