Things might have been worse. The year has been fruitful, and the earth has yielded food for the nations. There has been a reasonable degree of business prosperity iv this country, not withstanding the political excitement with which the land is cursed every four years. All our national affairs are in good shape. We are at ■peace with all the world, if we have an eye" on Canada. If there is a slight stringency in money matters we have the satisfaction of ; knowing that there is a big surplus in the treasury. It is consoling to know that we have something* to fall bacK on, and' the thought will give relish to the turkey and cranberry sauce we will have for dinner to-day. It is true there has been no reduction in taxes, an. l tho trusts and monopolies are all in high feather. But for all that, we . are going to be thankful, because we are going to have the legislature this winter, and we are going to have a senatorial election with a prospect of a good deal of money being put into circulation. There is always a good deal of commingling of good and evil in this world, but the true philosophy of a Thanksgiving ob servance is to overlook the bad and be devoutly grateful for the good that is in sight. That's what Thanksgiving day is for, and it must be observed ac cording to the true spirit of the procla mation and the flavor of the turkey. rgsa — "LEAVING THE G. A. R. - The movement inaugurated by Gen. Palmer, of Illinois, and Gen. Matt son, of Indiana, which promises to de velop into a concerted action among the Democratic members of the Grand Army to withdraw from that organiza tion, is the logical result of permitting the organization to pass under the lead ership of demagogues like Foraker and FAincniLD. The Grand Army was organized on a strictly non-political and non-partisan basis, and if it had ad hered to the original idea of its organization it would not now be threatened with dissolution. It occurred in this, as in so many other in stances, that the professional politician insinuated himself into the confidence of the organization for the purpose of abusing that confidence by perverting the organization from its original pur pose and converting; it into an engine for the promotion of his selfish ambition. Gen. Palmer has occasion to know the drift that the Grand Army has taken under tiie -riddance of leaders of the Foraker type, for he was recently hon ored by his party with a nomination for office, and was made to feel the extreme partisan .-force the organization exerts. Although he was a distinguished Union soldier iv the war of the Rebellion, and since the war has won honors in civil life, still he was as completely ostra cized by the Grand Army officials in the late campaign as if he had been a trai tor, and for no other reason than that he was a candidate on the Democratic ticket. Under these circumstances it is no wonder that, impelled by a sense of self-respect, veterans of Democratic persuasion all over the country have made up their minds to withdraw from the Grand Army as it is at present or ganized, and let it be in name, what it has proved to be in fact, only a Repub lican campaign machine. mm SO APOLOGY TO OFFER. The Albany Argus insists that the St. Paul Globe, the St. Louis Republic and the Evansville Courier ail owe apologies to Gov. Hill for having questioned his loyalty tothe Democratic national ticket in the late presidential contest, and de mand that our expressions of regret be at once handed in to his excellency on a silver platter. We know nothing of the disposition of our St. Louis and Evans ville contemporaries: but, so far as the Globe is concerned, wo have nothing to retract, and have said .nothing that we wish to apologize for. In the first place, we refuse to recognize Gov. Hill's right, through his personal organ or otherwise, to demand an apology for anything said in the way of criticism of his public career. In the second place, if he had such a right, we have said nothing that would demand an apolo getic explanation. The most we have said, and we stick to it, was that Gov. Hill's victory under the circumstances would probably prove a dearly bought one for him. President Cleveland has generously acquitted Gov. Hill of all suspicions of loyalty to himself or to his administration, and no one else is now in position to question it. At the same time, that does not -relieve Gov. Hill from the embarrassment which always comes from the enjoyment of a personal victory at ■■'-■ the expense of party success. We do not say, nor have we ever said, that Gov. Hill is individually to blame for this peculiar state of affairs; but being tire beneficiary, he will have to accept all the consequences of it. If it gives him the nomination for the presidency in 1892, he will have no reason to be dis gruntled at the criticisms which are now showering in upon him. If it defeats him for the nomination, or is an ele ment of weakness to him in the election in case he gets the nomination, he can not bewail the stroke of misfortune which befell him in running 30,000 votes ahead of the national ticket at an election where the national Democ racy were interested in the success of the national ticket and didn't care a bauble about the state ticket. Gov. Hill's sensitiveness under censure is probably being intensified just now by beholding the honors bestowed by the Republicans upon his defeated com petitor in the gubernatorial race, -for having so heroically sacrificed himself upon the altar of party success. If Warner Miller had been elected gov ernor and Harbison had lost New York state, Mr. Miller would now be experi encing the same unpleasantness that afflicts Gov. Hill. In conclusion, we would simply remind Gov. Hill that it is a condition which confronts him and not a theory, and the sooner he lets this subject drop into innocuous desuetude the better it will be for his political as pirations. -, THE NEXT CONGRESS. The anticipations of great gains to the Republicans under the census of 1890, by increase of population in states controlled by them, and the transfer of the political center westward, are likely to come much short of being | realized. There will be material changes, but they will not greatly disturb* the pres ent relative power of sections or parties. The present ratio for a member of con gress is 151.912.' This gives a house of 325 members, '-.which' is conceded to be quite large enough. To keep it down to these figures the ratio of the new ap portionment must be well toward 200, --00 0.: Under this, Minnesota will proba bly gain two" congressmen,- making seven. The Dakotas will have three in all, and the other -territories admitted one each. Kansas will gain two, or three, perhaps. The Republicans may THE PAINT PAXIL: DAILY GLOBE: THURSDAY MORNESTG, NOVEMBEB 29, 188 a presume upon some »■ advantage in these accessions. ' On the , other band, Texas will ; have sixteen, to eighteen" ■ Missouri will gain one or * two. ;. The - other Western states will hardly hold their present number. Chi- ■ cago will gain one or two .members at the expen**-* of the rest of the state, with advantage .0 the Democrats, and .New York city will substitute two or three Democrats " for- Republicans in the in terior. The New ' England I*states1 * states will lose probably two or three Republicans, and the South will Jose a little in some states and add others, with no im portant change in the aggregate While states in each of -:. the great ;. sections of the country will lose, there will be sains '. iii others. -Portion's of ' the j South" are developing rapidly, and the great states ; of the East are" keeping well up. The diffusion of the new ; population has been '.-".more general than in former dec ades. The West will gain, but at a less ratio than heretofore. . THEOniO MAN. ; Gen. Harrison's main trouble in con structing a cabinet will be to please the . Ohio man. This übiquituous individual has a genius for bobbing up in political affairs where his presence is most"* em barrassing. A Republican administra tion without an - Ohio man well up in the front row would be an anomaly in American politics. Gen. Harrison rec ognizes this fact, but the trouble: with him is to decide wnich Ohio man to select for a cabinet office. There is so large a surplus of office seekers among the Ohio Republicans, it is difficult to make a satisfactory distribution of official plums among them. Where one is taken and the others are left, there is sure to be a big-sized row in the camp, and it is an utter impossi bility to find government holes to put all the Ohio pegs in. This is just the dilemma that the president-elect finds himself, in with regard to giving Ohio a representative in the cabinet. Senator Sherman was Gen. Harrison's closest competitor in the Chicago conven tion, and, by all precedent and political courtesy, is entitled to the offer of a cabinet position. Con gressman McKinley is the fa vorite son in. Ohio, and, having alone shared with Mr. Blame the hon ors of the tariff discussion, is justly en titled to recognition. But there is For aker, howling and clawing the air in his frantic endeavor to be recognized as the one Ohio statesman of sufficient prominence to occupy a cabinet post. Thus it is seen at a glance what an ele phant Ohio is on the hands of the pres ident-elect in the work of making up a cabinet. HB-i SOMETHING IN- A NAME. In a half-column editorial the New York Sun delivers to Mrs. Cleveland a timely lecture for her thoughtlessness in selecting a name for the Lamont baby. When Baby Lamont was born the other day, the parents considerately determined to name the little girl after the lady who has presided over the executive family with such queenly grace for the last four years. But, with that .harming modesty which is a trait of our sweet first lady of the land, Mrs. Cleveland begged that instead of naming the baby after her Mrs. Lamont would grant her the privilege of select ing the name. This was done, and Baby Lamont was christened Mar guerite. The fault our New York contemporary has to find with the name is that it is French, and it would have been so much more appropriate to have bestowed upon an American girl the honest old English name, Mar garet. The Sun says there is no lan guage whose feminine names are -more euphonious and more dignified than the English, and censures the president's wife for encouraging the foolish tend ency of this American generation for running after everything with a foreign flavor to it. According to the Sun's idea, there is something in a name, es pecially when it comes to bestowing names on our children. *-*_ -'- t- : " •> . TOO LATE COMING. It is announced that the twenty-sec ond and last volume of the census re port of 18S0 has just been completed and issued, when preparations are about to begin tor the next census. That was the most comprehensive and vol uminous ever taken, but devel opment is too rapid in this coun try to give much value to in dustrial figures eight years old. They represent an era that has been out grow;!. It were better to confine the enumeration to the population alone, leaving the social and industrial sta tistics to the permanent bureau of the. government. A measure of that kind was introduced in the house at the late session, aud will probably be passed. •*•_■ A NEW FIELD.

A Telegram Which Did a Postal ;'_?:-': Clerk an Injury. To the Editor of the Globe. In your issue of Nov. 26 appeared a communication from St. Thomas, Dak., under the headlines of "Political Jug gling." which would tend to cloud the reputation 1 have always been given for honesty and integrity were it to go un explained and unanswered. " I am a postal clerk on the line running through j St." Thomas, Dak.,' and the first intima tion I ever had of the loss of a registered package by the postmaster there was on the 20th day of October, when : lip and one or two other parties ; forced their way into my mail car at that place and demanded of mfc 8100, The postmaster claims that _ pouch containing this letter came from Giasston, Dak., to his office, and .was opened, and the letter was left lying on the table. After" a few hours .it was missed,' and the deputy postmaster who made up the mail concluded -he must have accidentally.- thrown: it : into the pouch he made up for my train. This case has been investigated and settled by the postoffice inspectors sent to ex amine into it. I have been found guilt less, and the postmaster at St. Thomas' has been compelled to pay over the amount of the supposed con tents of the letter. ' His attempt to injure me, supplemented- by the false impression given of this matter by other parties, will be attended to by my attorneys, who are now preparing suits for dam ages in my favor. This postmaster swears out a warrant charging me with embezzlement, and has compelled.me to employ counsel and defend. The con tinuance of the case has been made by my attorneys. There has been no rea son for my attendance for j examination thus far, and not one iota of proof could be advanced to show that I ever saw this package. It was either lost or stolen or misappropriated by this post master himself or some other person, or in some way or place that I know noth ing of whatever. 1 believe you will correct your statement of the 26th and in the future be more sure of the facts in the case before you publish any thing; so injurious to my reputation, especially after I have been found guilt less by the special agent of the govern ment, as in this instance. And I want it plainly and distinctly understood that the statements made that "certain politicians in St. Paul are interfering in this matter and obstructing, the ma chinery of justice," is an infamous lie, and is only a scheme concocted by the parties sending these telegrams to the St. Paul papers.

The hotels will be patronized very largely, and many of those who are without the pale of social home enjoyments will se< k one of the city's largest hostelries, and at the con clusion of a hearty dinner stroll " into the lobby.

Capitalists "Will Find a Field for Unbounded Speculation. - .'",'."• , W. C. Read, a well-known real estate dealer of St. Paul, who has been mak ing a tour through Mexico, for the past month, returned to the city yesterday, and will eat Thanksgiving dinner at home. ' ■;" : ".'-ry -'--?;' -•".-'.* .: '•Mexico is about fifty, years behind the times," remarked the traveler, as he inhaled a corn-husk wrapper | cigarette. "and the principal industries are silver mines and bull fiehts. I was a spectator at half a dozen of the latter during my sojourn in the land of the Montezumas,** but I must say that a ball game is far more* preferable to the brutal sport.

What is needed,.how ever, to develop the mines is better and cjiodern machinery, and the field open to capitalists in this respect cannot be overestimated. ' ; |j "QUEEN TOPAZ." Brilliant Initial Production of an Exquisite Opera. **" ; ; In. the musical rendition, in en semble, 'in costuming, in vocalization, in orchestration, and in all that per tains to an opera performance, - there could be no more complete or finished production than "Queen Topaz," which was "sung by the Boston Ideal company at the Grand opera house last evening. As a musical - composition, the opera is , a masterpiece, "and the wonder is that we have? not known, more of it in this country. It is gemmed with arias of most exquisite strain, and the music throughout is of that deli cate ; quality which never fails \to fascinate the listener. In the second act the music is a trifle heavy in places, but there is no suspicion of heaviness in the other two acts. Everything is bright ness and -vivacity. The [ splended cos tuming adds to the charm: of "- the : per formance so that neither ear nor eye grows weary. The ' plot is rather of the regulation opera style,: with love and jealousy*; and intrigue ' all : in a bundle. The action progresses in the sixteenth century, and the scene is laid in Venice. Leonora Salviati, a young Italian noble woman, has been : stolen in . childhood by a GypsyJ.banrl, and brought up ; by their ruler under the name of Queen I Topaz, as his -daughter. Meeting Capt. Rafael, a soldier of fortune, who has shown much- kindness toward her peo ple while enforcing the decree of .: ban ishment uttered against i tham by ■ the Duke of Milan, Topaz protects him from : the avenging daggers of ; the tribe, and soon falls In love with him. Rafael, who has been carrying 'on : a flirtation with l Countess";. Filomele .at Vicenza, shares Topaz's * tender feeling. Mean while Filomele, who is courted by Anni bale Barbiano, a wealthy Venetian.finds Rafael in Venice, a.nd, becoming aware that his continued presence is the con sequence of his love for Topaz, enters into a plot : with Annibale, whereby Rafael is temporarily convinced of: his sweetheart's inconstancy. But Topaz promptly turns the ' tables. Her . faith ful subjects— the 'leaders being dis guised as noblemen— possession of ' Barbiano's palace on .". the - night \of a grand festa. Topaz herself is seen as the rightful bearer of the illustrious name Salviati, and captivates all hearts. * Annibale is induced to par take of drugged wine, and, while helpless and half-unconscious, is made the hero of a mock marriage with To paz; Rafael, naturally, being in utter dismay at the supposititious loss of the woman he still doats upon. In the end, of course, all things are explained. Topaz's descent is proclaimed, and her union with Rafael foreshadowed, while Annibale wins the hand of Filomele, and forgets his : period of probation in anticipations of nuptial bliss. Amus ing episodes, incidental to the main plot, are Topaz's flrtation with half a dozen young noblemen, and the comic business of Fritellino and Francatrippa, two Gypsy leaders. It is faint praise to Miss de Lussan to saj that she never ap peared to better advantage in opera than in the role of Leonara in "Queen Topaz." If the composer had been familiar, with the quality of her voice, and had written the score of the title role for Miss de Lussan, instead of for Miolan-Carvolla, he could not have made a more happy hit, for it is as natural to her as if she had been born singing it. Certainly a St. Paul audi ence never heard her sing with more ease, or with more brilliant effect, than last night, and the audience was not at all stinted in its expressions of de light. The honors borne by Miss de Lussan last evening were fairly shared by Miss yon Januschowsky, who per formed the marvelous feat of singing a tenor role in the part of Rafael with such complete success that a straneer would never have suspected "her of being the possessor of a pure soprano voice. It was a triumph in musical art that but few women could achieve. In the last act of "Queen Topaz" are two arias of un excelled romantic sweetness, as warm as the south wind, and every note as delicately perfumed as the breezes which blow from a bunch of violets. One is the aria "All My Wishes Are Now Fulfilled," sung by Miss De Lussan, and the other, "O Dainty Flower, Speak to Her for Me," sung by Miss Yon Januschowsky. The comedy work was carried in excellent style by Miron and Baxter, who were heartily i encored on their funny business in the last act. ■"Faust" is the bill for the Thanks giving matinee performance this after noon, and "The Barber of Seville" will be repeated this eueuing. The follow ing is the cast of "Faust" for the mat inee performance: Faust Frank Baxter Meflstofele W. H. Clark Valentine... W. 11. Mortens Wagner ;.;.S. H. Dudley Margherita Georgiene yon Januschowsky Siebel... -..-. Alalie Claire Martha May Warren -Manager Foster should give another performance ■"" of "Queen Topaz" be- > fore leaving the city.. The merits of the opera were not known to our people until last night, and it is something that no one wants to miss. We do not want to appear meddlesome, but we take the liberty to suggest that it would be a more acceptable performance than either "Carmen" or "Faust," which are to be repeated. * ;. - .

Special to the Globe. New York, Nov. Grand Army men in this city seem to recognize the importance of the movement begun in Indianapolis yesterday; and admit that a split in the organization is inevitable. Joseph A. Joel, editor of the Grand Army Gazette, says tho movement will be national in extent. He says the Dem ocratic members have always been treated as more or less interlopers in the G. A. R. The order has always had politics in it, and the Republicans have always -' run it. The Democrats have . been ostracised and treated as traitors, even when they had been maimed in battling for the Union . Other G. A. R. men Indorse these statements and say that the Democrats now propose to form anon-political and charitable organiza tion,, such as the G. A. R. was originally intended to be. The new order will be called by some such name as "The Union Veteran associa tion," and all Union . veterans will be welcome. It is expected that many Re publican ex-soldiers, who feel that the G. A. R. has been run as a political ma chine, will join the new organization. MATSON NOT IN THK SWIM. Washington, Nov. 28.— Referring to. the published statement of Congress man Matson, believed to be at the head of the movement to organize a Democratic G. A. R., that gentleman says he knows nothing of it except what he has read in the newspapers, and consequently is not at the head, or at any other part of the affair. The other statement in the dispatch— that his friends expect him to follow Gen. Palmer's course and withdraw from the G. A. : R— he says .is also without foundation. He never was a member of the organization and cannot with draw. . .* ; : ' During the campaign Matson and Myers regiments of veterans were formed in every county in Indiana, and it is probable that these organizations form the basis of the new movement in that state, but of this he cannot speak by authority. BOOSIEKS ARE HOT. They Disclaim All Knowledge of a Wholesale Break in the Ranks. Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 28.— An ex traordinary news item, under an Indian apolis date, was given wide circulation last night, stating that "about 1,200 Democratic veterans, members of the G. A. R. posts scattered over the state,hcld in the capital building last nigh a secret meeting at which it was resolved that every Democratic man- of the G. A. R. should abandon the order, and all present pledged them selves to withdraw from their posts. Adjutant Gen. Koontz presided. A name and a constitution for the new order proposed for the Democratic vet erans .were adopted." That a full regi ! ment of veterans should have held such : a meeting as alleged without the local press discovering . their presence in the city seemed incredible, and nowhere was the publication a fresher news item than right here at home. An investigation to-day shows that less than sixty Demo cratic veterans held a quiet meeting at the rooms of the adjutant general last night, and discussed the subject of WITHDRAWING FROM .THE O. A. R. on alleged political grounds. Col. J. N. Walker, assistant adjutant general of the G. A. R. department of Indiana and the executive officer of the order in this state, in an interview to-night with the Associated Press reporter, requested that a correction .of the publication should be offered the press. He states that no application for withdiawal of membership, from the G. A. R. has been made to him, and that, he is the officer to whom such applications must come. That so far from the Indiana department de creasing in membership, the applica tions for permits for special musters to initiate new members have doubled within the past two weeks. That dur ing the late campaign the membership increased '100 in the very heat of the contest, and that the roll just returned for the last quarter shows a member ship of over -25.000. If any disaffec tion is threatened for- supposed political or other causes, Col. Walker says neither he nor Department Com mander Gen. A. D. Vandosdol are'aware of that fact. Members can withdraw in good standing at any time by paying tlieir dues and requesting a discharge. Col. Walker admitted it was possible Adjt.-Gen. Koontz and a small number of other Democratic veterans IMAGINED THEY HAD GRIEVANCE but denied emphatically that the G. A. R. had in any way been turned into a political machine, and cited the reunion of a regiment of veterans here during the campaign where there was oue Democratic member present, and out of consideration for his political views, the 300 others refrained from offering a resolution to visit Gen. Harrison in a body, and they consequently called as citizens, not as veterans. He further stated that he was in receipt of a number ot letters to-day from Democratic veterans, s ating that they had no intention of withdrawing,, that they had no complaints, political or otherwise. Col. Walker and other leading G. A. R. do not believe that Col. Matson, the late Democratic candi date for governor, is in any way coun tenancing or aiding any move to divide the veterans on political grounds. A meeting was held to-night at the Hendricks club rooms by some three score Democratic G. A. R. veterans, at which an organization was perfected, known as the Democrat Soldiers' and Sailors' Veteran association of Indiana. This organization is the result of what has been termed the revolt against the G. A. R. The object of the new association is set forth in the following preamble to their constitution and* by-laws: The purpose of this association shall be to inculcate the true principles of patriot ism, love of country, and to foster and maintain true Democratic principles in the administration of the govern ment, both state and national, and secure a pure, simple, and ef ficient administration of the i same and to resist with all our might any .and every encroachment upon the constitu tional rights and liberties of the people. To preserve and strengthen those kind and fraternal feelings which should bind together those who, as " sol diers, sailors and marines united to suppress the rebellion and to perpetuate the memory and history of the dead. To aid in every possible way all persons who have been honorably discharged from the military and naval service of the United States. To secure for them preferment and promotion in the civil service, etc. After the adoption of the constitution, the .: . following officers were . elec ted. President, '. R. A. Taylor; Secre tary,W.

Inspector Bonfield's Startling Testi mony Denounced by the Wild- Eyed Anarchist. Special to the Globe. CmcAGo. Nov. 28.— startling tes timony of "Informer" Chleboun yester day had the effect of attracting as big a crowd to Judge Collins' court this morn-' ing as the room would hold, Hronek had changed a good deal since yester day morning. He looked worried and shifted about nervously in his seat, and eagerly listened to every word of the testimony. The first witness was Officer Muchaski, one of Inspector Bonfield's Bohemian detectives. The officer told of an interview which Hroneck had had in the jail office in tho presence of himself. Inspector Bon field, State's Attorney Longenecker, a stenographer and Officer Nordrum. Hronek said that the bombs in his pos session had been made by one Schnei der, who lived on Henry street. Hronek declared that Schneider had made BOMBS FOB LOUIS LINGO. , Hronek told the - inspector that he had 120 eight-ounce sticks of dynamite hid den in his own house. At the close of Witness Muchaski's testimony, Inspect or Bonfield was called to the witness stand and testified that he had an inter view with Informer Chleboun about the middle of last July. From information furnished by Chleboun, Bonfield set officers to work on tho case and two days . later took out warrants for the arrest of Hronek and another anarchist named Chapek, who will be tried after the Hronek case is disposed of. The inspector said that ho went to Hronek's house and ' there found hidden in the bed tick a large dirk knife, a revolver, a dynamite bomb and numerous pieces of iron, all of which were then exhibited to the jury. Alter arresting Hronek, the inspector went to the place where Chleboun was working, and took him home to his room, where he found EIGHT STICKS OP DYNAMITE and an iron bomb similar to the one found in Hronek's bed. The attorney for the defense cross examined Bonfield without changing the testimony. and the state rested its case. , The prisoner, Hronek, was then sworn in his own de fense, and testified that he was not an anarchist and never had been. He then made a general denial of Informer Chleboun's story. He never manufact ured, or in any manner handled any dy namite bombs. He acknowledged, how ever, going with Chleboun to locate Judge Grinnell's residence at the sug gestion of the former, and then became suspicious that Chleboun was conspir ing against him (Hronek). He had never said anything about revenge, and never said he had intended to kill President Cleveland, or that he would throw bombs into the court room. An adjournment was then taken till 10 o'clock Friday morning. ■ Preferred Death to Poverty.
