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.

turned himself loose yesterday in the

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

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

remained in St. Paul.

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.

TOO WEAK TO WIN.
Republicans at Winona Put Up a
:' t Few Innocents for Slaughter.
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

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. '• .'

Winona, Minn., Oct. 12.— The Re

demonstration to-night on the occasion
of " ex-Congressman Flnnerty's visit
here. The 500 torches in line made a
very creditable showing, but the men
were not all voters and it was a notice
able fact that the parade had more the
appearance of a procession of fine gen
tlemen then of laboring men. The
Wagon Works club made the largest
showing of the worklngmen, but the
demonstration was in marked contrast
to the mammoth parade of laboring men
in the democratic procession of
two weeks ago. Ex-Congressman Fin
nerty had a large audience at
the opera house, and devoted himself
largely to the defense of the protection
robbery. Despite his protestations
that he was not doing so, he waved the
bloody shirt frequently, and told of the
wonders the Republican party had ac
complished in times gone by. An
exhaustive tirade against Great Britain,
a denunciation of the Mills bill and of

Rome, Oct. 12.— Early this morning
Emperor William, accompanied by Gen.
Drequet, commander of the Eighth
Italian army, visited Camp Centocelle,
where a military review will be held to
morrow. He returned to the Quirinal,
where he received King Humbert.
The emperor took luncheon with
Herr yon Schloezer, the Prus
sian representative to the Vatican,
after which he proceeded to the Vatican
to visit the pope. He wore the uniform
of the Life guards, and was attended by
Count Herbert Bismarck. Enormous
crowds lined the streets leading to the
Vatican and were very enthusiastic in
their manifestations in honor of the j
emperor. 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. The
suites having been presented, his holi
ness arose and led the way to the Salla
Gialla, where he held a private inter
view lasting twenty-three minutes with
the emperor. On. returning a procession
was formed and the museums were vis
ited. Emperor William walked beside
Cardinal Rampolli. Next came Prince
Henry and Cardinal Sinistri. The Pal
atine guard and the dignitaries of the
pontificial court followed. After leav
ing the museums, the party inspected
St. Peter's. Thence the visitors re
turned to the Quiiinal. At 9:96 a. m.,
Count Herbert Bismarck visited the
foreign office where he had an interview
of one hour with Premier Crispi in re
gard to questions In which Italy is spe
cially interested. It is stated that there
is perfect accord between the views of
the two statesmen. Shortly after the
visit to the Vatican Emperor William
sent a message requesting sig. Crispi to
come to the quirinal for an important
interview. At the conclusion of the in
terview the emperor, with his own
hand,
DECORATED SI(J. CBXSPI
with the grand cordon of the order of

deserved it better than you." At the
state banquet at the Quirinal this even
in«r tlipri' were inn ciiHsts. 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." The pope re
ceived Emperor William in the j
yellow salon, which was decorated
with gifts from German sovereigns
to pjti& from the time of King Barba- j
rossa. When the emperor retired ;
Prince Henry was admitted to the audi
ence chamber, remaining ten minutes
with the pope. 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."
