A Drunken Half-Breed Meets His Death in a Saloon Brawl. Rev. B. S. Taylor Scores a Point in His Ecclesiastical Trial. Special to the Globe. Wixoxa, Minn., Oct. 13.— Fire this evening shortly after 6 o'clock started in McNie _ Co.'s wholesale book store, in the postoffice block, and before it was brought under control the entire block was gutted. The block was occu pied by the postoffice, McNie & Co., wholesale books and stationery; Build ing and Loan association; C. A. Pierce & Co., insurance; Berry & Mor rey, law office; and Western Union tele graph office. The latter was abandoned at an early stage of the fire, and the switch-board and instruments were all destroyed. The fire is supposed to have originated from a de fective chimney, which has frequently caused trouble. The smoke was so dense that it was impossible to do effective work, and the Hook and Ladder com pany, owing to their very poor and lim ited apparatus, were powerless to do service. McNiel & Co.'s stock was almost completely destroyed, and was valued at $33,000; insured for about $20,000, divided among sev eral local agencies. It is Impossible to get accurate figures or losses by the company at present. The fire rapidly spread through the post office and the offices above. The mail matter and movable furniture were all removed, NOT A LETTER BEING LOST. Fifteen hundred dollars will probably cover the loss on postoffice furniture, and Postmaster Whipple says he will fiave matters in shape again with very ittle delay in mail delivery. The Ma sonic fraternity occupied the entire third Boor of the building. Their rooms and furniture, the finest in tbe Northwest, were completely destroyed, together with costly uniforms belonging to indi vidual members. The loss on this ag- Sregates $."5,000, insured for $4,000. . A. Money loses $2,500 on law library, insured for $1,000 in the German-American. Bierce & Co., Insurance, also lose considerable. The fire became so threatening at one time that Mayor Ludwig telegraphed for aid to La Crosse, but later counter manded the order as the fire was grad ually brought under control. The post office block was erected In 1871 and was valued at $30,000; insured in the agency of W. S. Drew for $12,000, divided between the National, of Hartford, Providence, People's of Pitts burg and City of London. The building was owned by a syndicate composed of H. W. Lamberton, Laird, Norton com pany, Judge William Mitchell and a Dubuque capitalist. Ludwlg's hotel was flooded with water, but the build ing was saved. There was an insurance on the building and stock of $15,000 in the agency of Smith & Brannan, and the loss is fully covered. The streets were crowded with people, and ropes had to be stretched across Center and Third streets to keep the crowd from inter fering with the firemen. The total loss foots up nearly $80,000. At a late hour the firemen were still playing several streams on the flames and will probably have an all night's job. IX THE LAW'S CLUTCH. Road Agent Nickerson, of Many Aliases, Run Down at Rapid City. Special to the Globe. Rapid City, Dak., Oct. 13.— W. A. Nickerson, alias Shud Murphy, alias Johnson, who is suspected of being the leader of the gang that wrecked and attempted to rob the pay car on the Black Hills & Ft. Pierre railroad on Friday, was arrested here to-day and is now in jail. The authorities claim to have a good case against him. It is evi dent from the confidence with which the authorities work that Wil son, the man captured yesterday, has squealed. The whereabouts of the third member of the gang is known, and the sheriff has left town to secure him. All thiee men are well known in Rapid City. Murphy was for a long time general manager of a' bagnio here, and Wilson was then living with an in mate of the place. The third party was also connected with a similar institu tion here at one time. None of them have ever borne good reputations in the Black Hills. Wilson is wanted here on a charge of horse stealing, having jumped his bail last summer. His wounds are such as make his recovery impossible. The authorities are con ti dent that they have the right me. HIS LAST SPREE. A Drunken Ifalfrßreed Killed in a Saloon Row a* AVilliston. Wii.listox, Dak., Oct. 13.— This morn ing this town was again thrown into a high state of excitement by the report that .lack Culbertson, a well-to-do half breed, had been kiiled at Newton & Gibson's saloon. Culbertson had come down last nigiit from his home, fifty miles west of here, and had proceeded to get gloriously lull. He entered New ton & Gibson's saloon about 12 o'clock and raised a disturbance. Gibson put him out, and. it is claimed by some, struck him with a billiard cue. lhe saloon was then closed, and fifteen minutes later Culbertson returned, and bursting in the front door, struck Gibson a hard blow with liis fist. Gibson knocked him down and dragged him off the walk to let him lay and sober up, he said. About an hour afterward one of the boys who was in the saloon during the row, came out and found Culbertson still lying where Gibson had thrown him. "Upon examination it was found that he was dead. Gibson became scared at what he had unintentionally done, and immediately procured a horse and by this time is in Canada. The murdered man was about forty years of age, and leaves a widow and family. His family have been tele graphed for. Gibson is a man of good disposition, never drank to excess, and is gen .'ally liked. He is a partner of Martin, the man who killed Frenchy at this same saloon thiee we*lis ago. A TRIUMPH FOR TAYLOR. The "Wahpeton Divine Scores a Point in the Ecclesiastical Trial. Special to the Globe. Jamestown, Dak., Oct. 13. — The third day's session of the Methodist conference has been devoted exclu sively to Rev. B. S. Taylor's trial. No regular conference work has -been dis posed of for a day and a half. The sen sation of to-day was the establishment of the fact that Rev. J. W. Van Every, Taylor's successor as pastor at James town, was the author of the anonymous communication published in the Jamestown Alert in reply to which Taylor wrote a letter that was made the basis of the charges against him at the Whapeton court of inquiry. This is regarded as significant by Tay lor's counsel and friends, who claim that jealousy of his superior mental and oratorical abilities has developed a conspiracy among his fellow ministers and antagonistic laymen to blacken his character and expel him from the ministry. Taylor has removed from North Dakota, and is now lo cated in Minneapolis, and proposes to engage in evangelistic work. So far as his expulsion is concerned he says it af fects only his reputation, for he would not accept a preaching appointment, having decided to enter Evangelical work. Taylor's friends claim that he is the victim "of petty jealousy, and boast that as a result of this examination, which has been most exhaustive, the official head of presiding Elder Belbie. who has been more or less mixed up in the whole affair, will certainly drop into the basket Bishop Hurst is endeavoring to obtain the whole truth, and the investigation is getting into deep water. The case of Rev. J. Y. Tope, suspended at Devil's Lake last July, will not be heard of at this conference. He accepted his sus pension, withdrew from the Methodist church, and is said to have joined the Baptists. The charge against him was the securing of a divorce contrary to the church discipline, which only recog nizes infidelity as the ground for such proceedings in the case" of ministers. DIGGLE'S PECULIAR DEATH. A Crime That Is Claiming the At tention of Wright County Grand - Jury. Special to the Globe. Mason City, 10., Oct. 13.— grand jury of Wright county has put in a solid week's work investigating into the causes which lead to the death of George Diggle, at Clarion, on the 24th of last May. Mrs. Diggle was the lead ing star in Ford's dramatic com pany, which was then traveling through this section of the state. Diggle, who was of a jealous disposition, objected to his wife appearing on the stage, and on the 20th of May left his home at Sioux Falls and met the company at Clarion. After much persuasion the wife reluctantly said that she would quit the stage and go home with him. The night before they were to leave she went to one of the druggists of the city and purchased a large quantity of morphine, which she said she had been in the habit of using. Mr. and Mrs. Diggle then went to their room in the hotel, but were very shortly called down to supper. Diggle had no more than become seated when he said that he was so dizzy he could not see. He was carried into a bed room, and in less than two hours was a corpse. The coroner's jury which investigated the case returned the verdict that he came to his death by some cause not known to them. A great deal of inter est is manifested in the case.Mrs.Dliggle is a charming and intelligent woman about twenty-five years of age. She claims to be entirely innocent of the crime. The grand jury will not reach a conclusion until the latter part of next week. SETTLED THE STRIKE. The Trouble With the Northern Pacific Switchmen at Brainerd Compromised. Special to the Globe. Brainerd, Minn., Oct. 13. — This morning the citizens of Brainerd were startled by the announcement that the force of switchmen in the Northern Pa cific yards here, about twenty-five in number, had struck and business in the yards had been brought to a standstill. The cause of the strike was a difficulty in regard of wages, the men demanding a sufficient increase to place them on a wage equality with the same class of employes in other cities. The com pany was not willing to grant the demand. It was with considerable dif ficulty and delay that trains were made up during the day. but to-night a com promise was effected by which a few of the men returned to work and the bal ance severed their connection with the company. A force of new men having been put to work it is thought every thing will be running smooth in a few days. Everything is quiet, there having been little excitement and no disorder of any kind. STRUCK WITH A SPADE. Olaf A. Wis Will Die of the Inju ries Inflicted on Him by a Neigh bor. , Special to the Globe. St. Hillare, Minn., Oct. 13.— Olaf A. Wis*, a farmer living about eight miles northwest of here, was struck on the head with a spade last evening by Lud wig Ameson, a neighboring farmer. They were quarreling about Ameson's cattle being In Wig's haystack when Ameson struck Wig on the right side of the head with a spade he was using, inflicting a wound about two inches long. The skull was crushed, and pieces of bone and a piece of the hat were driven into the brain. Wig was carried home insensible, and has not been con scious since. Dr. Laniaux, of Red Lake Falls, was called, and pronounced the wound very dangerous, and in all prob ability fatal. A warrant has been is sued, and the officers are now in search of Ameson. ■ KILLED IX COLD BLOOD. A Nebraska Landlord Shoots a Tenant With Whom He Had Quarreled. Special to the Globe. Plum Creek, Neb., Oct. 13.— C01. R. S. Adams quarreled with a tenant named Walter West on his farm, eight miles east of here, yesterday morning about 11 o'clock, and drawing a revol ver, shot him dead. West was a single man. The dispute arose over the division of some wheat. Adams came to Plum Creek and surrendered. He is about sixty years. A Hard Cider --Barrel.** Special to the Globe. Fergus Falls, Oct. Banker Merriam and retinue went to Pelican Rapids yesterday morning and spent the day there. A special train was run to that village last night carrying a log cabin and a hard cider barrel, which were expected to enthuse the voters. The significance of this barrel, borne in tbe processions which are being organized . in this neighborhood in Merriam's honor, is too apparent to be misunderstood. SAINT PAUL, MINN., SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 14, 1888.— TWENTY-FOUR PAGES. Thd spectators catch on every time, and it is greeted with great delight. The Republicans will probably omit it after last night's experience, for the question asked honestly enough by the Pelican Rapids * voters, and repeated a dozen times along the route— "Do you sup pose that is meant for Merriam's bar rel?"—touched a sore spot in the heart of every loyal g. o. p. adherent. The Pelican Rapids parade was a dreary af fair, and the speeches were tame and feeble. The village of Henning was visited to-night by Merriam and party, but the crowd was small, and the en thusiasm hoped for nowhere to be seen. Lyon County Republicans. Special to the Globe. Marshall, Oct. 13.— The Republi can county convention for Lyons county held here yesterday, placed in nomina tion the following ticket for county of ficers; Auditor, D. P. Baldwin; treas urer, George Little; sheriff, J. Remou: register of deeds. James Gibbons; judge of probate, J. F. Brown ; superintendent of schools, Editor Edwards. No nom ination was made for county attorney, which was a virtual indorsement of the Democratic nomination for that office, V. B. Seward. ~ Bound Over. Special to the Globe. West Superior, Wis.. Oct. 13.— The eight Italians charged with the murder of Charies T. Hubbard at Hawthorne, about three weeks ago, have been bound over to be tried by the grand jury at the spring term of court. It is now reported that only three of them took part in the killing, and the remain ing five were forced to run with the murderers by their belief that they would be lynched if captured. Mac Donald at Farmington. Special to the Globe. Farmixgtox, Oct. 13.— Judge Mac- Donald addressed the people of this place last night. Notwithstanding the short notice given and the Prohibition ist meeting at another hall, the attend ance was good, a great many Repub licans being present, most of whom were well pleased with the fair and able manner in which the different issues were presented by the judge. BOTH OF THEM MARRIED. A Ticket Puncher Elopes With a Drum mer's Wile. CAUGHT AT KANSAS CITY. Mrs. Tillie Roeluck and C. K. Haynes, of Minneapolis, Imitate an Editor's Example. Special to the Globe. Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 14.— C. K. Haynes, of Minneapolis, and Mrs. Til lie Roebuck, of the same place, were ar rested this morning at the Union depot by Officers Burns and Ohave, on the re quest of the police authorities of Min neapolis. Tne charge is elopement and robbery, being similar to that pre ferred against Editor Moore, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and Mrs. Norton. A short time ago Chief Speers received a dispatch from Minneapolis stating that C. K. Haynes, a married man, and Mrs. Tillie Roebuck, a mar ried woman, had eloped from that place carrying with them a trunk full of Mrs. Roebuck's effects and all her jewelry. A minute description was given of the parties and the trunk. Last evening the officers discovered the trunk in the baggage room of the union depot and stood guard over it until the parties should come to claim it. A little after 11 o'clock this morning a well dressed young man and a pretty blonde called for the trunk. The officers rec ognized them from the description given in the telegram and arrested both of them. The lady burst into tears and at first refused to accompany the offi cers, but complied with the request of her companion NOT TO CREATE A SCENE. - At the central station they acknowl edged that they were the parties wanted. Haynes refused to say any thing about the matter, stating that it was nobody's business. Mrs. Roebuck was more communicative, and told the following tale: "I am twenty-seven years of age, and have been married a number of years. My husband and my folks have treated me shamefully. A year ago I met Haynes. He was con ductor of a street car. He had family troubles, and said lie was married and had one child. We fell in love with each other, and last Thursday he proposed that we should elope. 1 am not sorry for what I have done." The father of Mrs. Roebuck, E. H. Ack ford, is a wealthy retired merchant of Minneapolis. From what the police gleaned from the parties it appears that the husband of Mrs. Roebuck is a tin ner, who works in St. Paul, but lives in Minneapolis. There have been frequent quarrels between Mr. and Mrs. Roe buck, in which she claims her father always sided with her husband, which precipitated her hasty elopement. When Haynes was being led away to be locked up Mrs. Roebuck rushed out of the captain's office and kissed him, cry ing aloud as the officers led her away. She told the officers that if they would not prosecute her she would return to her husband. ... LEARNED IN MINNEAPOLIS. Haynes is well known around Minne apolis, but no one ever suspected he would be the means of breaking up a once happy home. The lady is the daughter of a well known and wealthy citizen, and her husband is a traveling man and spends most of his time away from home. About a mouth ago his wife, who fled last Thursday evening in company with Haynes, made the ac quaintance of a woman who has the name of being just a trifle rapid. The two were together much of the time. Finally the woman introduced Haynes to the traveling man's wife. He called upon her fre quently during her husband's absence, and, in fact, the two became quite inti mate. The woman's father, who, by the way, is one of the best-known gentle men in the city, had no suspicion that all was not right with his daughter, un til Thursday evening, when he was in formed that she had taken the train for Kansas City in company with Haynes. He was was nearly heartbroken upon learning this, but at once telegraphed to the Kansas City authorities to arrest the pair. After doing this he put his business affairs in shape and yesterday morning started for Kansas City. • c_i Committed to Anamosa. Special to the Globe. Waterloo, 10., Oct. 13.— At Waverly, 10., yesterday, County Attorney A. E. Dawson filed a motion before Judge Ruddick asking that M. E. Billings, murderer of the late County Attorney W. A. Kingsley and principal in lowa's most sensational murdei trial, be sent to the state penitentiary at Anamosa, pending the decision of the supreme court on his motion for a new trial. The judge ordered Biliings' removal to the penitentiary. SUNDAY ISSUE—PAGES 9 to 16. GREAT MINGS RUN IN " ■-: — : . i: J; Maine's Magnetic Man Shouts Long and Loud for Pro tection. Mr. Blame Attributes the Country's Prosperity to the Tariff. He Denounces President Cleveland and Everything Democratic. Hoosiers Who Bet on Hovey Applauded the Plumed Knight, Special to the Globe. Evansville, ftid., Oct. 13. — Mr. Blame spoke this afternoon at Garvin Grover for twenty-five minutes to about 4,000 people. The air was rather chilly and the Plumed Knight wore a heavy overcoat and gloves. It was 3 o'clock when he made his appearance, and in response to the greeting he said: "I have carefully read the speech delivered in this city last evening by Hon. Roger Q. Mills, chairman of the committee on ways and means, to whom the author ship of the Mills bill is popularly im puted. It is altogether a very singular speech. It assails very bitterly the doctrine of protection, ridicules it, de nounces it, and then in varied form of argument tries to persuade his hearers that the Mills bill has not really changed the protective features of the tariff. It has, he says, simply reduced the average of duties from 47% per cent to 42*4 per cent, and he argues earnestly that this 5 per cent reduction will not disturb the harmony or effi ciency ot the protective system. In congress and on the stump, for years past, Mr. Mills has devoted his ener gies and His eloquence to proving the free trade dogma that protection is robbery. If he was speaking the truth in those days, he must now ac knowledge that the Democrats are willing to rob to the extent of 4'2 I jper cent, while the wicked Republicans are robbing to the extent of 47>.j per cent. But the truth is, Mr. Mills does not state the figures correctly. On the con trary UE STATES THEM INCORRECTLY. ' : Ido not say he does this with the in tention to misrepresent, but like all other free traders, Mr. Mills is in such a muddle on the whole subject that he forgets the primary rules of arithmetic in studying the actual facts and figures of the case. Fortunately in a matter so plain as this is to the common understanding of men, we need not be imposed upon by any of the heresies or blunders or free trade speakers. We simply appeal' to the record. What does Mr. Mills mean when he says that is only an av erage reduction of 5 per cent? Will he face the wool growers of Indiana, from whom he strips every particle of protection, . and tell them that he lie has only reduced them 5 per cent? Will he tell the lumber manu facturers in the largest hardwood market in the world, in this very county, when he put their product on the free list? Will he say the same thing to the salt producers of Michigan, and so on to the numberless pursuits which he has thrust down from a fair protection to the free list? Will he tell them all to submit because of the wide spread fallacy that the average reduc tion of the whole is ouly five per cent? What is it to those industries that are stripped naked whether the average is five per cent, or five hundred per cent? In either or any event they are THRUST OUT INTO THE COLD. Gentlemen, there is one great differ ence between the Republican and the Democratic parties. Whatever the Re publican party proposes in congress it frankly* defends before the people. But j the Democratic party, from President Cleveland down through all the official grades, have for eight months waged a bitter war fare on the protective system, denounc ing it as plunder and organized robbery, and are now sending out speakers known, in fact, to be the most rancorous traders, with Mr. Mills at their head, to so qualify and explain away and jumble and reverse and turn and trim the figures that they hope to de ceive the people as to the true in tent of the assault made upon the pro tective system. Mr. Mills does me the honor in his speech to quote what I said upon reaching home after a year's ab sence in Europe, to the effect that a tariff was primarily for the protection of American labor. I think any man is blind who does not see, and is prac tically dumb who does not say the same thing. Let me illustrate. Mr. Mills proposes to take the tariff from wool and give to our manufact urers wool from Australia as cheap ai they get it in England. 1 will take that as a test case, for wool is made a test: case in the Mills bill. The wool being the same, and the air, the light and the warer being the same, and the neces sity for human labor being the same, how shall we make woolen .goods here to compete with the cheap woolen goods of England unless WE REDUCE THE WAGES •-. " of the workingmen far below that now paid? A man might as well dispute an axiom in geometery as to dispute that fact; and the inevitable result must be : one of two things— that we shall lose 1 the market for wools in this conn-" try, or must ' reduce the wages of the laboring man from 30 to 45 per cent. The Democrats address you as though you were all farmers and were fearfully imposed upon by a hostile class of manufacturers living in distant states. That is a great mistake. Indiana is herself a great manufactur ing state, and has within her own terri tory all the elements needed for manu facturing on the largest scale. Great as are the products of her fields, the products of her shops, with the multiplied power of steam and ma chinery, are equally great. You have therefore on your own soil the perfect results of protection in bringing the consumer and the producer together. The farmer needs the home market, which the manufacturing towns afford, and . the manufacturing towns must have the supplies furnished from' the farms. Each is required by the other, and, both working together, make a prosperous community of people. One without the other will never grow rich and powerful. ;*:..; -. ... ,„- „.' THE OTHER *. speakers were J. M. Butler, of Indian apolis; Col. A. Louden Snowden, of Philadelphia; A. P. Hovey, candidate for governor! and Gen. A. E. King, of Baltimore.

Hill Says High Tariff- Is Robbery of the Masses. He Remarks That Harrison and Morton are Leading a Forlorn Hope. Indianains Who Support Mat son Test Their Lungs in David B. _ Hearing*. Special to the Globe. Lafayette, Ind., Oct. 13.— Gov. Hill and party arrived at 9:50 this morning. The party was met at the depot by an escort composed of the Old Roman club, of Purdue, the Hendricks and Blue Jeans clubs, of Indianapolis, with the First Regiment band and Lafayette Drum corps. About 2,000 men partici pated in the parade, marching through the mud and rain cheering enthusi astically. A feature of the parade was drum corps of twenty young ladies wearing bandana dresses and helmets. The meeting at the rink commenced at 2 o'clock. Gov. Hill received an ova tion as he appeared. He spoke an hour,., and was repeatedly interrupted by wild applause. Many of his tariff argu ments were the same as employed at Mitchell and Indianapolis. Following is a synopsis of his address: I accept this kind reception which you accord, not as a mere personal compliment to myself, but as your tribute ol respect to the gallant Democ racy of the Empire State. I bring to you the greetings of the Democracy of the Empire State, and trust that your canvass may be successful here. I trust that not only will you carry the state for the electoral ticket, but that you will elect your gallant standard bearer, Col. W. Matson, who is here. [Great applause.] The speaker then reviewed the results of President Cleveland's administration. I think I speak the sentiments of the people when I say they are reasonably SATISFIED with THIS ADMINISTRATION. [A voice, "you bet we are."] Nearly four years of prosperous government has given the lie to the assertions made by the Republican party four years ago. [Applause.] They made the same asser tions eight years ago. They made them twelve years ago. But. they have now been completely and entirely answered. Our working men are now better em ployed than in years passed. Mer chants in some of our great cities, es pecially in New York city, are selling more than they did four years ago. The Southern trade has been the best for 'many years. This is so because under . the wise, patriotic and statesmanlike administration of President Cleveland, the country has been entirely satisfied. The principal question of the hour is that of reduction ot taxation. The Dem ocratic party believes that unnecessary taxation is unjust taxation. We believe that there has been thorough legislation for classes, and we propose to legislate for the masses. [Great applause.] We believe that the interests of the con sumers of the country should be con sulted now, rather than the interests of the selfish classes and the interests of monopolists. Upon this question the two parties divide. 1 know that THE GENTLEMAN FROM MAINE who is now in this state, seeks to im press upon the people of Indiana that all the blessings which they enjoy may be attributable to a high protective tariff. [A voice "He can't do it"] I suppose- the magnificent weather of to-day may also be traced to a high pro tective tariff. [Laughter] He seeks to prove that because during the past twenty years your population has increased, because your farms have been well cultivated, because to a great extent your indus tries have prospered, that all this may be accounted for by the existence of what is called high tariff. My friends, because you have worked hard and cul tivated your farms you are entitled to the credit of it and no one else. The increase of your population is not due to any tariff system. [Applause and laughter.] Your country has prospered, not because of the tariff, but it has prospered in spite of it. Why, it is a false position that he assumes. You might take a single date; you might prove almost anything. Why, my friends, there are more insane people in this state than there twenty years ago. Undoubtedly there are more mort gages on your farms than there were twenty years ago: undoubtedly there are more people that occupy our poor houses than there 'were twenty years ago. You see how false are the premises from which he reasons. The tariff, my friends, cannot be maintained upon these slight arguments. In the first place lay down this proposition, viz: That unless some great injury is to ensue it naturally is for the benefit of the people to have reduced taxation. I don't subscribe to the doctrine that the public DEBT IS A PUBLIC BLESSING ; neither do I subscribe to that other doctrine, namely, that public taxation is a public blessing. [Applause.] I be lieve that we have the right to assume that the country would be better and more prosperous by having as little tar iff as possible. Starting with that proposition, let me see what the Democratic party proposes. It proposes, my friends, revision of the tariff, based upon two elementary principles. What are those underlying principles? One is that there should not be any duty on raw materials sec ond, that there should be as light a tariff as possible upon the necessaries of life. [Applause.] Upon these prin ciples we may confidently rely upon .the intelligence and good judgment of the American people. We propose to place wool upon the free list, and lumber upon the free list. We propose to place salt, one of the necessaries of life, upon the free list. Years ago cotton was upon the free list, and we can see no reason why wool should not also be placed upon the free list. It is amus ing to read the arguments of Republi can newspapers upon the Mills bill. It is proposed to put old rags on the free list because it would make paper cheaper in this country, and great ben efit would ensue to all classes. When the Mills bill was reported to congress, and upon its passage, . the Republican papers immediately ; ;.'v; • j" , ; * ;. SET TO WORK TO ATTACK this item of the bill. They said all Junk dealers in the country would vote against Cleveland on account of It, but lo and behold, when the senate bill come to be proposed the Republicans themselves concluded to put old rags on the free list. If these people cannot vote for - Cleveland because old ' rags were put on • the free list, they can not jl vote . for Harrison .. either, and ( MIMESOT* HISTORICAL \ -illl - -_ ....„, nnp.rrv i The Want Columns, v SOCIETY.

[Laughter.] Gov. Hill here referred to the fact that a great many wealthy people go to Europe to spend the summer, buy their clothing there, bring it home, and by making affidavit that it is for their own personal use, bring it into this country free of duty. "And," said he, "you, my friends, know who it was a few days ago who came over to the country in a British ship, upon a ship which flaunted the British flag, and brought over with him thirty three trunk loads of clothing. [A voice: "Blame, Blame."] The Mills bill, my friends, proposes to put a stop to this outrage, because by its terms it pro poses to limit the amount of value of goods to be brought Into this country for the personal use of any party to the amount of $500. [A voice "That's right!"] The Democratic party, my friends, is not a free trade party. We believe we should have a reasonable tariff, We believe we should have a competitive tariff rather than a prohibitory tariff. Japan and China have had a prohibitory tariff for 100 years, and look at their condi tion now. The speaker concluded by eulogizing President Cleveland and Judge Thurman. The governor concluded his address by eulogistic references to President Clevand which elicited wild applause, and when he promised that the state of New York would cast her electoral vote for the Democratic ticket, the great audience broke into vociferous and pro longed cheers. It was 10 o'clock when the governor said his farewell words and retired, amid thunders of applause. An overflow meeting was held at the rink, which was addressed by ex- Senator George S. Raines, of Rochester. Both meetings continued until 11 o'clock, at which hour the streets were yet filled with parading clubs and drum corps. This concludes Gov. Hill's can vass in Indiana. The party left at 11:80 for Albany, highly gratified with their visit among the Hoosiers. — » Editor Woods Will. Special to the Globe.

On the North side the imported men, under pel ice protec tion, ran a few cars over all the lines, and j although there were rumors of riots and disturbances at various times during the day, they all proved to be unfounded and the new men were not molested. At 11 o'clock a committee of the strikers waited upon Mr. Yerkes and remained in conference with him for over an hour. This con ference resulted in nothing, owing to Mr. Yerkes' refusal to regard the West side men as a factor in the situation. Mr. Yerkes said that the West side men had not acted fairly in the matter; that the understanding was that they should return to work and awit the re sult of this morning conference. In stead of doing so, they had gone to their meeting place and had passed resolu tions fixing an ultimatum in a scale of wages for the North side men, declaring that if lie did not accept they WOULD RENEW THE STRIKE. on Sunday morning. He believed they knew, when they adopted this ultima tum, that he would not accept it. In view of these facts, he asked the com mittee to go back to the strikers, state the case to them, and, if ufter consulta tion, return to him without an ultimatum, at 2:20 o'clock p. m. The committee were not pleased with this turn of affairs, fairs, but returned to their hall and laid the matter before their fellow strikers. At 3 o'clock a second committee, com posed exclusively of North side . men, called upon President Yerkes, but after a session lasting over three hours the conference came to an end without an agreement being reached. Mr. Yerkes made the first proposition. He would pay 20*^ cents per hour for gripmen on the small cars, 21 cents for the large cars and 23 cents for the regular grip cars, and the men could arrange the schedule to suit themselves. All the imported men must be retained, and a number of strikers who had * made themselves obnoxious must be discharged. The men rejected this proposition. They wanted 21, 22 and 25 cents in the order named, and while they made no objection to the new men being retained, they refused to accede to tee discharge of any strik ers. >. -I - . - BOTH SIDES REMAINED FIRM, and there seemed no way out of the dead-lock, Mr. Yerkes adjourned the conference with the announcement that he would give the men a final answer by 10 o'clock to-morrow morning, after he should have consulted the stockholders of the road. In anticipation of a possible failure of the negotiations an order was issued this afternoon for an all-night meeting of both the North and the West side men at their hall to-night, at which the report of the conference committee will be heard and action taken as to the future course of the men. At the strikers' headquarters it was said to-night that Mr.Yerkes would be given more time, and that the Wes side men would again quit work in the morning. Still Shrouded in Mystery. Special to the Globe. Winnipeg, Man., Oct. 13.— shoot ing of Alex Taylor yesterday is still shrouded in mystery. The victim lies in a precarious condition and the police are quite at sea to obtain a clue. Tay lor says it was not suicide, but will go no farther. A neighbor saw a woman leaving the house where he was shot yesterday about the time the deed was done. The town is greatly excited over the event, lt is believed ; that either some woman or ber husband did the deed. , A Victory for the Omaha.

Secretary Fairchild and . : Speaker Carlisle Address Fifty Thousand Men. Blame's Doctored Figures Contradicted by the Treas „ urer of the Nation. The Old Roman's Letter of Acceptance Will Be Given Out To-night. Special to the Globe. New York, Oct. 13.— A stranger vis iting lower New York this afternoon would have thought himself at the scene of some great festivity, instead of in the busy street of commerce and finance, where transactions amounting to mill ions with all parts of the world occur every business hour. From every point were sounds of music and bodies of men moving about, some- in groups, others in marching columns, all decorated with club badges, while everywhere was seen the gay coloring of the popular bandana. The crowds commenced to gather near the subtreasury before noon, and more than an hour in advance of the time set for the meeting the large space at the junction of Wall, Broad and Nassu streets was tmpassable. The meeting fairly eclipsed In point of numbers and enthusiasm the great demonstration on the part of the business interests of New York which was" held at the same place in 1884, and which at that time electrified the country. An immense stand was built on the steps of the great granite pile of the subtreas ury, and this was magnificently deco rated In the form of a prolonged canopy of velvet overhead. The national col ors were below, and at the sides and in the background were grouped the beau tiful standards of the twenty Cleveland and Thurman clubs in the exchanges. The various clubs began marching upon the ground soon after 1 o'clock, and when the meeting was organized at 2 o'clock, Wall street, from William to Broadway, was impassable, and a SOLID RANK OF HUMAN BEINGS extended from near Pine street to Ex change Place, on Broad street. It is a low estimate to say 20,000 men marched to the meeting and that 50,000 were massed about the speakers' stands. Not a third of the assemblage could ap proach near enough to hear the speak ers. All business was suspended below John street. The clubs that joined in the procession were: Stock Exchange, Stock Exchange Auxiliary, West Side, wholesale dry goods, produce and mari time, coffee, cotton, consolidated stock and petroleum, custom house, brokers, brewers, clerks, hide and leather, in surance, young men, canal boatmen and harbormen, jewelers, exchange brokers, Temple court, wine and spirits and metal dealers. The meeting was called to order by Joseph J. O'Donohue. of the coffee exchange, who introduced the chairman, Francis -N. Law rence. Among the vice presidents were such men as August Belmont, Samuel D. Babcock, Conrad N. Jordan, Eugene Kelley, John T. Agnew, El bride T. Gerry, Alex E. Orr, Oswald Ottendorfer. Wilson G. Hiuk, Roswell P. Flower, Theodore W. Miles, William R. Grace, Addison Cammack, Isidore Wermser, Jordan L. Mott, F. B. Thurber and hundreds of others whose names would not be recognized as among those in the very front rank of New York's commerce and business inter ests. FAIRCHILD'S FIGURES. The Secretary of the Treasury Shows Dp Blame as a Prevari cator. Speeches were made after the parade by Secretary Fairchild, Speaker Car lisle, and others. Mr. Fairchild after going over the history and policy of bond-buying and depositing in national banks, said: "Ihave seen in the news papers that Mr. Blame has thought fit to try his skill in deceiv ing the public upon this ques tion of deposits in national banks. He says that with money at 5 per ' cent, a deposit of 160,000,000 would be a gratuity to the national banks holding the money of 18.000,000 a year. That is not true. The profit to the banks could not exceed $400,000 on $60,000,000 of government de posits with money at 5 per cent. Last Saturday I met Col. Brice for the first time, and asked him about a statement of Mr. Blame's concerning the deposits in his bank. Col. Brice told me that he owned a - MAJORITY OF THE STOCK of a bank in Ohio, but that the bank never had a government deposit; that he also had some stock in the Chase Na tional Bank of New York, of which, if politics is to be considered, lt is proper to say that Mr. Cannon, the last Repub lican comptroller of the currency, is president, and that a majority of the directors are Republicans. I find that this bank did have a rdeposit of 11,100.000 which it has repaid to the government recently, not finding a profit of $30,000 a year, as Mr. Blame states, or probably any profit in the business, else it would not have chosen to discontinue it. Mr. Blame says that a deposit of $1,000,000 is worth to the depositor $50,000 a year. Let us see how this is. A deposit of $1,000,000 would require $910,000 4-per cent bonds as the security, which at 1.25 would have cost $1,137,500. This money loaned at 5 per' cent would have given the bank $56,875, if the bank had not be come a depository, but being a deposi tory it must keep 25 per cent of the de posit as a reserve, so it can loan but $750,000, which produces $37,500 inter est. Now, add the interest on the United States bonds, which Mr. Blame with horror says that the banks are al lowed to collect— per cent on $910,000 is $36,400, and you have $73,900 received by the depository, but from this should be deducted \ji per cent, the yearly pro portion of the 25 per cent premium, which the owner of the bonds must lose when the bonds are paid at maturity, twenty years from date of purchase, and there is left $62,525, the difference between which and $56,875 is $5,650, not $50,000 as stated by Mr. Blame as - THE REWARD OF THE BANK for serving as the medium to put $1,000,000 where it could be useful in business at,a time of dire necessity. It It may be said that bonds have gone up 4 per cent. True ; but they would not have done so had the advice which the president and secretary of the treas ury repeatedly gave been followed, and whatever * ' premiums they may bear, that * premium tlie man _TO. 2««. who holds them to maturity musi lose. Make the calculation with money at 6 per cent and you have a profit of ' only $1,775, and at 7 per cent there is an actual loss of $2,100. Is it a wonder that many banks were reluctant to perform this service last year, and that some have been discontinued as depositories at their own request? So much for Mr. Blame's allegations as to profits. He contends that these de posits have been made "without a shadow of substantial right in law," although he said that he had not time to go into that subject. I can only say as to that, that those de posits have been made under the same law as the millions of dollars deposited by all the Republican secretaries of the treasury, when it was more profitable than now, bonds at a low price being then plentiful. Three of these deposi tories are in the state of Maine, and are the same depositories which this admin istration found when coming into power." . ..- -v The telling points of Secretary Fair child's address were received with great enthusiasm, and his statement of our financial conditions and the duties im posed by them were listened to with the deep interest that men whose LIVES ARE BOUND UP in such objects give to the discussion of them by a master mind. The secre tary's address was free from all preten sion, was very simple in its language and very bold and incisive in its declara tions of the necessity of enforcing Democratic methods in the administra tion of the federal finances. He asked not for more power to carry out the functions of his office, but urged that the powers of the treasury ought to be curtailed- so that the country would no longer be so greatly dependent on the discretion of its chief financial officer, and impressed upon the minds of his hearers the fact that such simplification of administra tion could only come about through tho reduction of taxation that burdens the country and hampers this energies. AN ERA OF HARMONY. Speaker Carlisle Points Out the Bond of Sympathy Between North and South. When Secretary Fairchild concluded, Speaker Carlisle was introduced amidst deafening cheers. Mr. Carlisle, after thanking the assemblage for their hearty welcome, said Mr. Fairchild had made such ' a clear and satisfactory statement of the financial operations of the government during the pres ent administration, that nothing is left to say on that matter. I will, however, speak on another subject which ought to be taken into serious consideration. One of the most beneficial results of the last presidential election was the estab lishment of harmonious relations so cially, commercially and politically between the people of the North and the people of the South. [Cheers.] The union of these sections lias never been so strong as it is to-day. [Cheers.] It is strong be cause the peoole of every part of every part of the country feel that they will re ceive equal and exact justice as citizens of a free government. [Applause.] Mr. Carlisle then went on to charge the Republican party With attempting to reopen the sectional race agitation and asserted that leaders of the party in congress had already adduced bills and resolutions which must inevitably bring about this sectional feeling. ' The fact that Mr. Cleveland's adminis tration had inaugurated AN ERA OF HARMONY between all the country. Mr. Carlisle declared, was sufficient reason in itself for his re-election. Mr. Carlisle eulo gized the administration of President Cleveland at some length, called attention to the prosperity tho country had experienced since his election and predicted his re-election by an overwhelming majority. Mr. Carlisle next referred to the tariff. Ho attacked the tariff bill created by the Republicans in the senate and declared that the Democratic party in congress would never give its consent to a measure which proposes to reduce tho revenues of the government by in creasing the taxes on the people, The Democrats, he declared, by tho passage of their tariff bill in the house, had honestly endeavored to prevent the accumulation of large amounts of money in the treasury, and diminish the burdens on . the people. Mr. Carlisle reviewed at length the pro visions of the substitute for the Democratic tariff bill, drawn up by a committee of the senate, and asserted that the committee in framing the measure paid no attention whatever to reducing the taxes on the people, but had, on the contrary, increased them. In conclusion Mr. Carlisle said taxation should be reduced an equalized so that the capital and labor of the country would not be subjected to any tariff except what is required to defray the expenses of the government - and pay its just debts. Restriction should be removed from trade so that the products of the industries of the country could be sold in other markets. The Democratic party did not want free trade. It merely demanded that the home government should not deprive the people from free access to all the materials of the world neces sary to the comforts of life." The ad- ' dresses harmonized perfectly with each other, and with Jeffersonian theories of American government. The "speech of W. A. Boody, who is a favorite author ot New York merchants, was a very effective effort, and elicited great applause. Until a late hour the streets were filled by various organ izations marching to their headquarters, cheering for Cleveland and Thurman and good government. The conference committee of the Cleveland and Thur man Business clubs has opened a cen tral headquarters tor the purpose of in suring concert of action among the as- ' sociations during the remainder of the campaign. The Republicans concede ! that the Democratic national ticket was never so strong in New York as to-day. CUNNING CARLISLE. He Will Not Express Any Opinion Regarding Local Politics in ' Gotham. New York, Oct. 13.— When asked to day what he thought of the political situation in this city Speaker Carlisle made this reply: '*I cannot say any thing about it for 1 have not studied it. The politics of New York city is too complicated for my brain. I prefer to study some simpler matter, like the tariff question for instance. That is . easier to understand." Thurman's Letter.
