"What the St. Paul Pioneer Press Has to Say About It. From the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Oct. 9. Cbookston, Special Telegram, Oct. „— 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. Lab son, of Fosston, was unanimously nom inated for the legislature, and will un doubtedly be elected, as he is one of the meet popular and intelligent Scan dinavians in this section of the country. To-night, after the convention, Hon. Charles D'Authemont and D. B. Johnson spoke to an immense crowd at the opera house. Mr. D'Autbemont's speech was confined solely to tariff, and his arguments were well presented and •convincing. Mr. Johnson discussed principally state politics, and showed Mr. Merriam's boodle record in the most approved style. The speeches were most enthusiastically received, and the good seed sowu will bring forth much fruit. Dm you notice the Globe's advertis ing columns? They are corkers. mm* Mr. Blame and Gov. Hill jawed each other at short distance yesterday. The advertising record in the North west is broken. This issue of the Sunday Globe does it. _ _£». They are having some politics in In diana. There are two very magnetic men down there, and tiiere is no reason why enthusiasm should not boil over both sides of the political.pot. . o> Nearly rive pages of want adver tisements in to-day's Globe. The peo ple of the Northwest know a good ad vertising medium when they see it. .0. . ; qThe poor, tired editors of the Globe are awfully grateful to the businessmen of this, city for their editorial assistance to-day. It is the kind of rest we like. The wool grower gets no benefit from the tariff on wool. It is the manufact urer of woolen clothing who reaps the benefit, and the consumer of woolen clothing pays it. Women, as a rule, would prefer a high tax on whisky and tobacco rather than have it on clothing*, ln this they are far more sensible than some of their husbands aud sous. The people of this country are too deeply in earnest in their determination to have a reduction of tariff taxation to be turned aside from their purpose by the cry of free trade. The tariff is a tax insidious in its operations and only dimly seen, but is nevertheless as direct and absolute as any levied in feudal times by an irre sponsible baron on helpless vassals. -c^ When a candidate for governor only gets three votes out of 148 in an as sembly largely composed of men be longing to his party, he may justly be regarded as small potatoes, and few in a hill. _ _^ Perhaps the reason the sultan poi soned thirteen of his wives the other day was because he had an idea of marrying again, and he thought it safer to be off with the old girls before he was on with the new macame. m. A St. Louis burglar, who had suc cessfully ransacKed a house, dropped $10,000 in government bonds while scaling a rear fence. He was not pur sued, possibly for the fear that if caught he would reclaim the money. If the sugar trust and the wheat cornerers have their own way a while longer, the old saying, that "a person cannot eat his own cake and have it." will lose its significance, as nobody, not. a millionaire, will have any cake to eat. -•■ In the opinion of Judge Davenport of Kansas City, there is nothing in the laws of the state of Missouri to interfere with a woman wearing men's apparel if she wants to. And if she is arrested on that ground, it is a case of false im prisonment. _ The Boston Transcript (Ind.) consid ers Gladstone as one of those "blarsted Englishmen" who don't know anything about this country anyway, or he never would have said: "As long as America adheres to the protective system, En gland's commercial supremacy is se cure." mm Mr. Blame tells the people of Michi gan that if the tariff policy of his party is defeated this year, it is defeated for a generation to come; which shows that Mr. Blame believes that the people will like the Democratic tariff policy too well to change it back to the Repub lican policy. m» The Republicans may imagine that the local divisions among the Demo crats in New York city will help them, but they don't know the' elements there very well, or they would know that this domestic unpleasantness doesn't count when they tackle the common enemy. There will be more Democrats out to vote than ever known before. _^ As A matter of fact, the idea of sub mitting a substitute for the Mills bill was never seriously entertained until . the events of the presidential canvass and the unmistakable tokens of the drift of popular sentiment in the direc tion of tariff reform compelled t!:e lie publican leaders to give the matter their attention. **."■"; mm - - THANKS. GENTLEMEN. The editors who have labored so long and diligently in making the Globe the favorite paper of the Northwest desire to make their grateful acknowledge ment to the business men of St. Paul and Minneapolis for the valuable assist ance they have rendered in editing this day's issue of the paper. A glance at our mammoth twenty-four page edition will reveal what successful editors the business men of the Twin dries can make. More than one-half of the paper is filled with their literary productions, and most readable matter it is, too. Of the 193 columns of space in this issue of the Globe 115 columns are taken by the advertisers who wish to reach the great body of newspaper readers. As an evidence of the Globe's popularity as an advertising medium, we refer to the thirty-five columns, or more than four pages, of want adver tisements which appear in this issue of the paper. This is a test of popularity with the masses that has never been exhibited by any other paper this side of New York. It is, therefore, in a pardonable spirit of pride we call the attention of our readers to this fact; for in addition to printing this unprece dented amount of advertising in this issue of our paper, we have also given to our readers the usual amount of news and entertaining literary matter that we are accustomed to serve on Sunday. mm SHERMAN'S SCHEME. Manifest destiny may comprise in its radius the Canadian provinces as a part of the nation that has its federal head at Washington. The idea is not new or novel, but the recent outgiving of Senator Sherman, in his interview with the correspondent of a new York paper, is giving the subject prominence at this time. The senator does not anticipate any immediate diversion in the direc tion of a combine on either side of the line, but throws out his scheme to elicit discussion, and perhaps furnish his party an issue in the future, if the public mind shows a disposition to move on that line. His proposition is to induce Canada to sell or annex itself to this country, in consideration of the assumption by the United States of the three hundred millions or so of debt now carried by that country. Among the inducements to this course the senator urges that Canada has no outlet to the sea except by the St. Lawrence, which is closed one-half the year, or through the United States; that in Northwest Canada all the valleys through which railroads can be built trend southward, and refers to the lines that have already been built in the United States to connect with similar lines from Manitoba for "the pur pose of bringing the products of that region to Duluth, Minneapolis and St. Paul, and thence to the Eastern seaboard. He has traversed the country, and gives it as his personal observation that railroads can be very cheaply built to the Canadian line, with a grade rarely exceeding thirty feet to the mile. To absorb Canada would be the addition ofa population in the main using the same language, and familiar with the institutions of this country or those very similar. We would thus add about 6,000,000 of English-speaking peo ple to the United States, now* num bering 00,000,000, and round out its territory to the icy and implacable re gions of the North. Besides, adds the senator, annexation sooner or later is inevitable. The scheme is at tractive, and likely to catch the fancy of many, as it seems to have done at once with some of its pro mulgator's associates in the senate. The various additions to the domain of the original United States have proved so advantageous, and shown the fallacy so utterly of the dolorous predictions of their opponents, that the proposition for the addition of Canada is not likely to meet any very decided antagonism. There may be objections to the assump tion of so large a debt, or to special so licitations, but the conviction is well defined that the stars and stripes will in time float over a continent. There is no present need for new lands to absorb the growing population. There is room in the West for a good many mill ions of people, and few care to get nearer the frigid regions than the present boundaries of the country. In the event of a war with England Can ada would naturally and easily be taken in by the United States as one of its in cidents, but it is not at present showing any inclination to change flags. The Canadian people rather pride them selves upon their allegiance to the old country. Nor does it appear that Eng land is willing to abandon its claims. These are palpable advantages to this country in the possession of a portion of Canada; and if there were anxiety there to be annexed, a favoring policy on the part of this country might be desirable. Such is not the case at present. No political element in Canada proclaims annexation among its objects, and a reluctant population would not be an acquisition to be sought WORK FOR ALL. A young man writes to the Globe in a complaining tone, that, induced by the glowing accounts he had heard of this city, he had left his far-distant home, where he held a good position, and came here with the expectation of mak ing his fortune. His experiences has been a bitter disappointment. He says: "While 1 am able to work and willing to work, I cannot find employment. I know of a number .of other young men similarly situated. What are we to do about it? Cannot the Globe suggest some plan by which deserving young men who come to St. Paul with the pur pose of devoting their energies to the upbuilding of this metropolis may find a way to get a start?" The Globe is gratified to have this matter called to its attention, and we will take advantage of this oppor tunity to give our youthful correspond ent and all who are similarly situated, a plain talk on the subject If our young friend gave up a good position at his far-distant home to come here on an uncertainty, we cannot place much re liance on his judgment. The old adage, "Let well enough alone," contains an immense deal of wisdom. If the young man came here with the expectation of making his fortune in a day, or even in a year, then he was again the victim of a misguided judgment. St. Paul wel comes all young men of brain and brawn, but it does not hold out as an in ducement for their coming the promise of fortunes, except they be made by legiti mate processes. The young man who conies to make his home among us must come prepared to take his chances with the great throng of our population, and must depend upon his own wit and in dustry for the success that shall crown his efforts. The opportunities for money -making are here, if one but has the discernment to know when to grasp them. It occurs to us that there may be a difficulty in the way of our young friend's securing employment that he has failed to take into consideration. There is no occasion for idle hands In THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER __, 1888.— TWENTY-FOUR PAGES.. St. Paul. There is work enough hero for the entire population, and more -than enough, and at remunerative wages. We apprehend the trouble with this young man Is that he Is not willing to work at the kind of labor he can get, and cannot get the kind he is willing to work at. He has set his pegs too high. He probably wants to be a bana president or a railroad magnate at the beginning. His ambition soars away above his opportunities. That is all wrong. If he wants to succeed in life, he must be willing to lay his hand to whatever comes in reach. If there is nothing better in sight than carrying a hod or trundling a wheelbarrow, it is better by all odds to be employed at that than to be idle. The young man who is actuated by this sort of feeling does not need the services of an em ployment bureau. If he thinks it be neath his dignity to turn an hon est penny in an honorable way, though it be lowly, then we have no ad; vice to give, nor will we worry our brains discussing a plan by which he can get a start in business. We will say this much, however, for his encour agement—most of our millionaires and great men commenced life in its low liest conditions, and then worked their way up to wealth and eminence. St. Paul affords as many advantages and opportunities for young men start ing in life as any city on the globe. There is no excuse for any young man who is steady, industrious and willing to work, to be complaining that he can not find employment. The work is here if you will only lay your hand to it. ________ A WORD ABOUT WAGES. It is the shallow pretense of protec tionists that because wages are higher now than they were in years before the war the increase is due to the tariff, It would be just as logical to claim that the advance is due to the war, for it can be just as clearly shown that wages have advanced in countries which have no tariff as to show that they have ad vanced in countries which did not suf fer from a civil war. Wages have advanced, the condition of the workingman the world over has improved; but neither war, famine, pestilence, nor what in America has been as destructive as all these forces combined— protective tariff— anything whatever to do with this changed condition of affairs. The con dition of the working classes is not what it ought to be, nor what it would be if we could once for all abandon the paternal theory of government, and al low each man to take care of himself. It is the workingman who suffers most from evil legislation, from extravagant taxation, because he has no surplus to draw from, no reserve; his contributions must come from self-denial or privation. A new era dawned for the working classes with the coming of the great in ventions. Since then, in textile manu facturing; taking all the machines from the raw material to the finished prod duct, one man does the work of a hun dred men a century ago. At the beginning it was the fear of the workingmen that Invention would displace them, and they would be left to starve. "Where shall we get work." said they, "when machinery takes our places?" They could not see what vast changes would be wrought by machin ery; they could not know intuitively that new forces.then silent and inactive, would be put in motion which were to transform the. lace of the world, open new channels for capital and enter prise, and raise man from the ignoble state into which he had fallen, giving him command of machines which,with out haste or rest, would do the work of an army. It is not possible in the limits of a newspaper article to clearly define all the influences which have been at work adding to the surplus wealth, to the wage fund of the world, increasing the amount which could be divided among laborers, advancing wages and bringing little by little luxuries and comforts within the reach of the workingmen, of which half a century ago they had not dreamed. Yet these influences have been at work silently and effectively, not only in America, but the world over. What we complain of is that in this country they have not had their full ef fect; that under the disguise of protec tion the workingmen have been de prived of much of their natural inherit ance. ' RELIGIOUS societies. At the risk of having his motives im pugned, President Cleveland prompt ly replied to the letter of the president of the Young Men's Christian associa tion asking his views regarding the work of the society, and in most em phatic language approved its object and applauded its mission. .The value of such testimony from so high a source will be duly appreciated by the organ ization, and will have its influence in promoting the usefulness of all relig ious societies. There never was a period in the history of religion when there was as much generous devotion to every channel of religious work among the people as there is now. Never be fore were such contributions given for religion, for charity, for missions; and it is all due to the fact that the people of this great country recognize more than ever before that their wel fare and prosperity depend upon the preservation of their faith in the use fulness of all organizations that are es tablished for the purpose of benefiting mankind. Just as Mr. Cleveland says, we are a busy nation; yet we are not unmindful of the influences which radiate fiom benevolent institutions. Whatever elevates humanity must com mand the respectful consideration of all good citizens. In calculating their capacity to endure taxation, the people should take into account that on the 31st of December, 1886. the total debt of the railroads in the United States was M, --377,000,000; and if this enormous sum is ever to be paid, the money to pay it must come out of their pockets, lt is always the dear people who have to foot the bills, no matter whether the payments are made in the shape of duties at the custom house or in the form of freight charges and passenger fares. The products of our energy and enterprise are so great at present as to make us unconscious ofthe burden, but the time will come when we can't ex pect to bear it so easily. mm "Any Republican can carry Michi gan," scornfully exclaimed Mr. Conk ling in the Republican convention of ISSO. Either Mr. Conkling was . mis taken or conditions in the Wolverine commonwealth have changed since his assertion was made. Mr. Blame's vehement appeals for Harrison in that state show that he at least regards it as a doubtful community. m Mr. Edward Solomon, the young musician, ought to be able to give some very valuable information on the much discussed question, "Is marriage a fail ure?"' Outside of Salt Lake City and Chicago, it is doubtful if there is a man in the country with such extensive and varied matrimonial experience. - Mr. Curtis, the Labor candidate for president, is a spiritualist, and delates that heis guided and controlled by free and disembodied spirits. In this, how ever, he has no advantage over the Re publicans, who have spirits free from tax, and which constitutes the animat ing principle of their canvass. — ___-: -•' A scramble in New York city al ways brings out an immense poll on both sides in the country.

DRAMATIC DRIFT. Time may steal the roses from Mag gie Mitchell's cheek, but it doesn't rob her of her popularity with St. Paul people, as was abundantly demonstrated by the good houses she drew during the last week. The new play, "Rosedale," at the People's, also proved a good drawing bill, and altogether the dramatic business for the week has been flourish ing. - * The bill at the Grand this week will be an unusually attractive one. The celebrated comedians, Robson and (.'bane, will give the first production in this city of Bronson Howard's suc cessful comedy "The Henrietta." The play treats of Wall street, where fort unes are made and lost in an instant In the great game of speculation. "The Henrietta" is the name of a railway and mining company. There is also _* Henrietta, a ballet dancer, a chestnut filly by that name, and a fictitious Henrietta, "The Witch of Wall Street.'? From the complications arising out of the mixing up of the various Henri ettas most of the comedy situations are derived. The play is in four acts: William H. Crane appears in the. character of Nicholas Van Alstyne,* known as "Old Nick" in the street, and a good double for "Old Hittch" of the Chicago grain exchange. Stuart Rob son assumes the character of Bertie, the Lamb, his son. Messrs. Robson and Crane carry aH the original scenery used during the great run the play had in New York, and promise to give here just as fine a production of "The Hen? rietta" as was given in the Union Square theater. * ■» Owing to the successful run of "Rose dale" last week, the management of the People's theater have decided to con tinue its production for another week. It has been the most decided hit of all the plays that have been produced at this theater since its opening. » • % "Yes, I suppose we won some glory with the National Opera company, but we paid dear for it, remarked Miss Em ma Jucu, while talking over her opera experiences the other day. "It is possi ble you may have a castle in Wales some day," suggested a bystander. "I ought to have something of the sort to compensate for the many castles in the air that I have been building," retorted the prima donna. "However, if I can make enough out of my concert tours to build a good house out of your beautiful Minnesota stone, I shall be satisfied to dispense with the Welsh castle." * - Mrs. Langtry and Mrs. Potter have an American rival. Miss Lora Hollis is the name of the new theatrical beauty, and she lives on the Pacific coast. She is said to be as pretty as a ripe peach, but can't act a little bit. That brings her at once into competition with the Jersey Lily aDd the New York Morning Glory. * The courts having released Mar garet Mather from J. M. Hill's management, she will begin her season on her own hook at Yonkers, N. V., on the 27th of this month. A fortnight later she will present in New York city a revival of Pineeo's old play, "The Squire." * ■» Encouraged by the success of his new play, "The Paymaster," Duncan Har bison is now working on another play, to be called "From '01 to '65," which is founded on the civil war. It will not be brought out until next season. « « # The Boston Ideals will begin their season at Troy, N. V., to-morrow night. Manager Foster has added another prima donna to the company.

It was a lady who is happily married that started the discussion of the ques tion "Is Marriage a Failnre?" How j would it do for some minister of the gospel, who has been a successful preacher, to start an agitation of the question, "Is the Pulpit a Failure?" One is just as problematical as the other. The arguments in support of the propo sition that marriage is a failure are numerous, and yet those who advance these arguments admit that if our mar riage laws were abolished the founda tion stone of society would be removed. :: • * Marriage itself is not a failnre, but there are a great many married people who are. The same may be truthfully said In relation to the pulpit. • The pul pit is recognized to be the foundation stone of religion, public morality and social order, and yet the power of the pulpit as a public educator is unques tionably on the decline. The fault lies with those who fill the pulpit. They are not fulfilling their mission as public teachers, because they fail to keep pace with the progress of the age. The power of the pulpit is declining, and will continue to decline unless it can be raised to a plane of broader intelligence ' and liberality. ;- ■ /-'; * • * It was mistaken mercy which ended the prison term of Michael Gorman, a Sing Sing convict. He had been in the penitentiary for thirty-three years, and when he walked out into the world as a free man. the other day, he was worse off than if he had died.inside of prison walls. Life can have no attractions for the individual who has no friend or acquaintance in all the wide world, and no one who cares to become his friend or associate. * * * In an interesting article in the Century magazine for the current month, Ed ' ward P. Clarke, of the New York Evening Post, divides our national history into four political generations. The first was the constructive gener ation, from 1789 to 1825; the second is called the compromise generation, and ' included the period which gave the nation its Clay, Webster and Cal houn; the third generation commences with the election of Lincoln and the ascendency of the Republican party, and runs down to the restoration of the Democratic party to power. According to Mr. Clarke's division of political ages, we are now just fairly beginning the fourth period. * * * It is singular how few men of special prominence are iv public life who have lapped over from tiie third to the fourth generation. John Sherman is re ferred to as almost the only connecting link of importance between the third and fourth generations. The only other two conspicuous political leaders of the third generation now living are Han nibal Hamlin and Jefferson Davis. They are the only survivors of those whom Charles Sumner found in Washington when he first entered the United States senate thirty-seven years ago. » • .In a talk with ex-Senator Morton S. Wilkinson a few days since, he fell into a pleasant reminiscent vein and gave some interesting recollections of the men who were the giants of the third political generation. Referring to the j men of eminence whom Indiana turned out during that period, Mr. Wilkinson was of opinion that Henry S. Lane was bead and shoulders above them all. There were two other Lanes who attained celebrity in na- _ tional politics, but neither of them was to be compared to Henry S. Next to (Henry S.Lane possibly. Thomas A. Hendricks was the great est man Indiana produced. Oliver P. " Morton was a man of striking ability, but lacking in all other elements of greatness. Dan Voorhees and Ben jamin Harrison belong more properly to the new generation. It was not alone for their ability and eloquence that Henry S. Lane and Thomas A. Hendricks were conspicuous, but for those shining graces of character which attracted other men to them. When either made a friend he held him for life. * Dwight L. Moody, the evangelist, who arrived in San Francisco a few days ago. has decided to spend the winter on the Pacific coast. He will go to Port land this week to commence a series of evangelistic meetings in that city, and will begin his revival work in San Fran cisco on the first of January. * * * Gertrude Rives, the younger sister of Amelie Rives Ciianleb, is extreme ly fond of horses and is a daring rider. Fox chasing is her favorite amusement, and she always leads in the chase. She is almost childlike in appearance, but has any amount of pluck. Her father owns a handsome collection of horses, and she spends much of her time in the stables, directing the grooming of her favorites. » * * Somebody played an awfully mean trick on Senator Joe Blackburn on his fiftieth birthday. The day Joe was born his father filled a large bottle with pure distilled Kentucky bourbon and luld it way in his cellar, with instruc tions that the cork was not to be re moved until the boy baby up stairs had reached the half-century stone on the turnstile of life. There the bottle stayed until a few days ago it was taken down, the mould and the dust brushed off, and it was forwarded to Washington to do distinguished service at the semi-centennial celebration which was to occur at the home of the , Kentucky senator. Pretty much every member of the senate was invited to be there and take a "wee drap" of this precious old relic of the better days in old Kentuck. The 'senator helped his guests, but forgot to touch his own al lowance until he saw an expression of disappointment creeping over their faces. Applying the liquid to his own lips, he discovered that somebody had prematurely celebrated his birthday with the precious fifty-year-old whisky and had refilled the bottle with water. j • , Some Business Facts. _ .

' means to the glory of St. Paul that working women are fre quently heard to declare, "1 would rather walk ten blocks in Chicago, or in any town East, than walk two blocks in St. Paul after 11 o'clock at night." Even Drs. Emery and Fuller, as pro gressive women as any city boasts, con fess that they find it decidedly unpleas ant to respond to night calls, and one seldom faces the music without the support of the other's company. The music of deserted or worse than deserted streets requires more courage to endure than those without experience appreci ate. Theoretically, if a woman goes along attending to her own affairs, looking neither to the right nor the left, she will bo unmolested. Practi cally, if she goes along in the way pre scribed, right on Wabasha street, which is better lighted and more traveled late at night than any other street in town, except Seventh, perhaps, men not only will address her in an insolent and in sinuating manner, but will frequently come up behind her, and, with an impu dent "Good evening," walk beside her for half a block or more. With no po liceman in sight, there is nothing for her to do but bolt ahead, heart in mouth, and, by giving no sign of the intruder's presence, discourage further advances. Every shadow, to the be lated feminine foot traveler, shrieks "Murder!" at her, and, with the noise of a crowd of drunkards, who are sure to be brawling somewhere within hear ing distance, or the frightened cry that suggests some worse-conditioned* sister in despair, the chorus of our streets after midnight is calculated to rob the aspiring female of every spark of am bition, and fill her with the hitter reali zation that to be great is not to be happy. • » A Mascot Is it good or bad luck to have a strange or Hoodoo, dog attach himself to you? Hurrying up Which? Cedar street, Monday : . morning, I became con scious of a dog walking close beside me. Afraid of anything that is even doggy, I gave a frightened feminine "Scat!", that only caused the beast to look up at me with the obtuse stare of a country cousin and press a little nearer. 1 darted across the street as If on suddenly recollected business, striving to look brave and walk as if hydrophobia were not at my heels. He was right there, however, and in all my zigzagging stuck closer than a brother. If 1 was afraid of him, he was afraid of everything but me. He carried himself with the downtrodden air of a society reporter, and in the pathetic droop of his eyelids intimated a conviction that for him the only safe side in life is suicide, or, in an emer gency, the other side of me; and should a dog that wanted to fight approach him with a growling challenge, he would quietly exhibit his belief that discretion is the better part of valor, and put me between him and the en emy—a state of affairs that soon gave me such clear visions of the angels I de termined to seek refuge in a street car. As I waited for one on Seventh street my mangy pet, pressed close to me, waited patiently, too, asking me with his eyes frequently, "What are we going to do, my dear girl?" He said "we" with an inclusion of himself in all my future movements that was as discouraging as any matrimonal outlook ever can be. He essayed in a weak, but determined— a truly reportorial fashion— to get on the car with me, and was only per suaded to desist by the kick of a boot worn by a Swede on the platform. I seemed to hear him sigh, and then, with a degree or two more of the "anguish of patient resignation" in his countenance, he trotted along beside the car, looking up to me in the window, and causing me to feel like a miserable heathen, with the assurance that if 1 were he, and he were I, he would not treat me thus. A number of passing vehicles finally forced him away from the car, and when I left it I found I had ac complished my purpose— had lost him, though not with a clear conscience. Perhaps he was a hoodoo; still, there is sense of duty shirked connected with our separation. I can't help feeling that some day, if not on earth, in heaven, I shall meet that dog again and have need of his services; and when I go to him, he will look at me reproach fully, and, turning away, say coldly,' "I beg your pardon— I never knew you." * » The transitional When She woman— the woman of the period, who stands Will She Will, half-way between her own and man's spheres, a hand on both, enjoys advantages her emancipated successor will never ex perience when she has finally succeeded in raising herself quite to man's level. A business woman cited an instance of this fact in the presence of Ears one day last week. Some money was over due her, and she was anxious, if possi ble, to collect it without process of law. Her attorney, who had been her medi ator in the affair, at last told her that it was no use. "Yon can not get that money without bringing suit against him— that's my verdict as a gen tleman of the law and a victim of the old skinflint's repeated exhibitions of obstinacy." this young woman never says die until the last clod falls on her hopes, and she announced her inten tion to see the knave in person. "I rather think," said she, "that if Igo home, put on my best gown, my new gloves, curl my bang, adjust my win ning smile, and present myself before the gentleman with a modest appeal for the money he owes me, I'll get it." And she did. In half an hour, she danced into her attorney's office, threw her Sunday hat up to the ceiling, and flourished a check for $5,000 in his face. Tne gentleman of the law whistled his surprise, and reverentially asserted, "Verily, it is so. All things aie possi ble with God— women. • * Oakland Ay- .

The common experience of all who have oc casion to travel on the Oakland avenue car is to start hopefully, even cheer fully, up Wabasha street, and to stand at the corner of Fifth until some three or four cars going to opposite parts of the city have rolled indifferently along their way, when, if the person be a woman, she concludes it is less conspicuous to walk up Wabasha until a car •overtakes her. Was. ever the trust in g disposition innate in woman worse abused! At Seventh street she conies to a halt again, gazes expectantly down Wabasha as far as eye can see, and with every car Hint rounds the corner a fond hope dies. She braces herself with her umbrella, and when twenty minutes have elapsed her /supreme effort to look as if it is the most natural thing in the world for her to figure on a street cor ner as the Goddess of Liberty ! figures on a pedestal in a public square fails her. The casual glance \of passing women becomes contempt uous to her distressed soul; the casual glance of passing men her fevered imagination construes an insult; and every bootblack who in nocently whistles "Tra-la-la-la-lah, tra la-la, tra-la-la-lah," she is morally cer tain means to "queer" her cropped head, and she cowers him with unjust expressions of righteous indignation. She grows to understand just how much her parallel in history— the boy who stood on the burning deck—suf fered; and when in desperation she crosses from her stand in front of the market to take up a new one in front of a grocery store, she feels more or less like the Indian girl that ornaments the door of a cigar store. Then, after she has been there ten minutes, motionless and well-behaved as the dummy she is conscious of resembling, to have the proprietor of the. store saunter out and count the quinces and Spanish onions she is mounting guard over is more than tender sensibilities and an honest nature can endure. She grasps her umbrella firmly by the center and strides off down street, resolved that If she meets a thousand Oakland avenue cars they all may.ln the words of Shakespeabe, go to. Back for home she is hound, and the car she does meet in front of the postoffice is powerless to stay her in her mad career. * Eyes and Eabs. POLITICS IN STILLWATER. The Democrats Pat Up a Very Strong Ticket. THE REPUBLICAN TICKET. Hon. Fayette Harsh Named by Both Conventions for the Legisla ture. The largest, most harmonious and enthusiastic convention ever held by the Democrats in this county assem bled yesterday at 2 p. m. Its delibera tions were unusually harmonious and a strong ticket was nominated from beginning to end. It was called to order at 2 p. m. by J. C. Nethaway. of the county committee, Hon. E. W. Durant being selected as president. Mr. Durant accepted in a ringing Demo cratic speech, which was received with great enthvsiasm. He thanked the convention for the honor bestowed upon him, and assured the convention that, should its deliberations be har monious and its actions wise and pru dent, victory would result in Novem ber. E. F. Barrett was then chosen secretary and the convention proceeded to business by the appointment of a committee of five upon credentials, who, after due deliberation, reported every town and precinct of the county, except the town of Woodbury, fully represented. The report was ac cepted, and after the temporary organization had been made permanent, it proceeded to business by taking an informal ballot for a candidate for sheriff. For this office, Edward Dono van and Emil Kreuger were named, the ballot resulting in 24 votes for Donovan and 37 for Kreuger. Before a motion for a formal ballot could be entertained by the chair, Mr. Donovan arose and moved that the nomination of Mr. Kreuger be made unanimous. It was received by the convention with a storm of applause, while the delegates con gratulated Mr. Donovan over his noble action. For county auditor, Myron Shepard was nominated on the second ballot, which was made unanimous. Hon. C. P. Gregory was nominated for county attorney by acclamation, and, being repeatedly called upon, came be fore the convention and made an elo quent speech, thanking the body for ; paying him the highest compliment in its power by giving him so earnest and unanimous a call to a place upon the ticket. He eulogized . Mr. Donovan for his noble action, and said that such acts were the surest presages of a final triumph, which he believed would include the whole Democratic ticket. Mr. John F. Burke, the present incumbent, was then nominated for treasurer by acclamation, and made a rousing democratic speech of accept ance, in which ho prophesied victory forthe national, state ami county tickets. Hon. K. Lehmicke, present judge of probate, was renominated by acclama tion, as was also W. R. Lelimicke for register of deeds, David B. Clark for surveyor, T. P. Janus for county super intendent of schools, George H. Sulli van for county commissioner and W. C. Voigt for coroner completed the ticket. The following resolution, of fered by W. S. Conrad, was then adopted : Wiiereas, We, the Democratic party of Washington county, in convention assem bled, do recognize the tact that judicial of fices should be held aloof from politics; and, Whereas, In Hon. William M. McCluer we recognize an honorable and upright citizen and officer, one worthy of our support and esteem ; therefore, be it Resolved, That the Democrats of this county, in convention assembled, hereby en dorse the Hon. William M. McCluer, ana rec ommend that his name be placed upon the Democratic ticket, and that he be supported by onr party for the office of district judge in this county. On motion the secretary was In structed to furnish Judge McCluer with an engrossed copy of the resolution. A recess of twenty minutes was then taken to allow the delegates from the First and Second legislative districts to nominate candidates for representatives to the legislature, which resulted as fol lows: First district, Hon. Fayette Marsh; Third district, Hon. R. M. An derson, which nominations were re ported to the convention when an ad journment was had. The general feel ing in this city is that the Democratic ticket is one or the strongest ever made In this county, and there is a very gen eral feeling that it will be elected. The Democracy is united, harmonious and confident, and has the prestige of a sweeping victory two years ago. Added to this is the tremendous feeling on the part of the people generally in favor of tariff reform, which will strengthen the county ticket, while it is helping the national and state. In the evening the club turned out in full force and had a rousing ratification meeting at its hall, parading the principal streets with torches, and returning to listen to speeches from local speakers and candi dates. . : ' .;. . THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. The Republican county convention met at tlie court house at 10 a. m. and was called to order by the chairman of the county committee, Dr. B. G. Merry. A temporary organization was effected by the selection ot E. G.Butts as chair man and J. C. Henning as secretary. A committee on credentials was appointed, which reported ail towns and precincts represented. The temporary organiza tion was then made permanent, when the convention proceeded with the nom ination of candidates for the several county offices. W. C. Masterman was nominated by acclamation, the secre tary casting the ballot of the convention for him. For county treasurer, Samuel Bloomer was nominated on the fourth ballot. Harvey W. Davis was nomina ted by acclamation for register of deeds and C. P. Holccmb for sheriff in the same manner, while Orris E. Lee was served in the same manner for city at torney. For the office of judge of pro bate a number of names were presented, including the chairman himself, each of whom promptly declined until finally that of A. E. Doe, who was not present, and could not,, therefore, decline, was presented . and he was unanimously nominated. For the office of county superintendent of schools, J. Q. Mackintosh, or Cottage Grove, was nominated, anil with Jesse 11. Soule for surveyor and Dr. T. C. Clark for coroner the county ticket was completed. A resolution was then read by the chairman, which was adopted unanimously, instructing the county committee to.cast the vote for the office of district judge. A resolution was adopted indorsing Senator Sabin for re election to the senate. The convention then adjourned, after which the several legislative districts proceeded to nomi nate candidates for the legislature. In District No. 1 Fayette Marsh was placed in nomination. This district comprise! the First ward and i the townships of Marine, Oneka, Grant and Forest Lake. In.District No. 2 Hon. G. M. Seymour received the unanimous nomination. This district comprises the Second and Third wards of the city. District. No. 8, which comprises the rest of the county, will hold its convention later on. tor county commissioner in the First district Charles Lund, of Marine, was nominated, and in the Third dis trict, comprising the Third ward of the city, Andrew Olson was nominated. POLITICAL NOTES. The nomination of Hon. Fayette Marsh by both Republican and Demo cratic conventions for representative, Is undoubtedly owing to his pronounced tariff reform views, which are so largely shared in by Republicans as well M Democrats in this county. _ The Democratic torchlight parade of last evening was far the finest political demonstration of the campaign. It was a hummer and no mistake, and the boys all vote just as they went line. Yesterday afternoon, while a gang of convicts were working in the depot yards unloading gravel which is being drawn thither from the prison vatd, a man named John Bailey managed to elude the vigilance of the guards, and could not be found when the rest were marched back to the prison. He had only three months longer to serve, and his action is therefore very strange. The rousing speeches* of Messrs. Durant, Gregory and Burke relieved the monotony of an ordinary conven tion and were warmly received by the convention. The two conventions were the means of filling the city with people from the country yesterday, many of whom are not frequent visitors here. Hugh • Harrison and James P.

"Citizen's Atlas of American Politics, 1789-1888, with a series of colored maps and charts, by Fletcher W. Hewes, author of "Scribner's Statistical Atlas of the United States." Large folio. .*•>». Charles Scribner's Sons, New York. It has remained for Mr. Hewes to add to the literature of American political history one of its most peculiarly valua ble contributions. No work we ran now recall is more complete as a resume of American politics nor better adapted for general use than this unique ami singularly comprehensive atlas. The author has ingeniously availed himself of charts* and maps for presenting his facts, and herein he showed admirable wisdom. So comprehensive a view of the whole range of American political history could have been given in no other way. By the aid of a semi-pic torial method he brings before the eye at one glance what would require pages of text and dry statistics to cover. The entire history of the political parties from 1776 to 1888 is thus portrayed, and a more interesting study of the same matter has never been presented. Mr. .Hewes' resume of the political parties Micludes their origin, times of supre macy, analysis of votes in presidential elections since 1824, given by -states. History, and even statistics, become truly fascinating In such a showing. Oi — Cases of Great Age. New York Telegram. A group of bankers In a down-town restaurant were discussing the ques tion: "Is the banking business condu cive to longevity?" when one of them said: "I don't believe men In our line of business are any more liable to die young than preachers or doctors. There are a dozen New York bank presidents who have passed their seventieth year, and are still hale ana active. Two or three of these men have reached their seventy-fifth year. There is, however, a lady banker who is smarter for her years than any of them. She is Mrs. Deborah Power, the head of the banking firm of D. Power & Soils, at Lansiugburg, N. i\, and her age is ninety-nine years." Houston Post. The presence in the city of Mr. G. W.

[Written for the Globe.] Be gay and the world is with you. But weep and you weep alone: You'll have plenty of friends while life is gay And sorrow is unknown. The bright side of life is not lonesome, There never a sigh or a moan; But as soon as the clouds begin to approach Alas! many friends soon are flown. "Eejoice with those rejoicing!" Who does not think this fair? But— "Weep with those who weep"— alas! But few will take their share. Sing and the echoes will answer. Sigh— 'tis lost on the air; "- A shout of joy makes the forests ring- Not so the voice of care !
