THE ROCHESTER SCANDAL.
The attempt made by the Pioneer
Press yesterday to put the Rochester
asylum scandal in the same category
with the Cook county asylum affair is
wholly unwarranted-by the facts. They
are not parallel cases, for the simple
reason that there is no evidence that
the management of the Rochester asy
lum was in collusion with the brutal at
tendants, nor is there any reason to
suppose that more than one case of ex
treme brutality occurred. The single
victim in the Rochester case was a burly
negro of a naturally fiendish disposi
tion, whicli had been aggravated by his
insanity. We are not attempting to
apologize for the Rochester manage
ment; but we do think that we see ex
tenuating circumstances, which relieve
it of the grossly brutal characteristics of
the Cook county affair, and a sense of
justice impels us to say as much.
Yet we unhesitatingly denounce that
laxity in asylum discipline whicii
makes it possible for subordinates with
brutal instincts to maltreat patients.
Patients are sent to these asylums with
the expectation that they will 'be ten
derly cared for, and whenever this ex-.
pectation fails of realization there is
good ground for a change of manage-;
ment. There are some forms of in
sanity so violent that it is absolutely
necessary to use force in restraining the
patient; and yet that can always be
done without an exhibition of cruelty.
It is too frequently the case that asylum
managers we not discriminating enough
in employing their help but a still
worse feature is that, owing to the fact
that these institutions are usually under
political influences, subordinates are
forced into position as a reward for
political services, and not because of
tlieir adaptability to the place, aud the
superintendent really has no discretion
in the matter. We are not informed as
to tlie exact status of the Rochester
asylum in this respect, but we are in
clined to suspect that, like most of our
public institutions, it lias been made a
football for the politicians so long that ]
it is really in a pretty badiy demoralized
condition. And _ yet we are not pre
pared to believe that its management
has descended to the depths of the
Cook county concern.
Apropos to the recent discussion
through the press relating to the profits
of flax growing, and of tlie likelihood of
it superseding the wheat crop in cor
am sections, we find some facts and
figures in the May report of the statis
tician of the agricultural department,
which furnish valuable hints to the
farmers of the West and Northwest.
The heretofore popular impression that
Europe is largely dependent on us for
its wheat simply is upset by these sta
tistics, for it is shown 'that Europe
grows almost wheat enough to feed her
self without drawing on other coun
tries. Europe raises 1,200,000,000 bush
els yearly, and only imports about 140,
--000,000 bushels, of which less than two
thirds comes from the United States.
Europe raises more potatoes than she
needs, and either one of three states
lowa, Illinois and Missouri— can raise
corn enough to supply the whole Euro
pean market ' Although Europe ; re
quites twice as much • wool as is pro
duced there, we cannot compete with
Australia, South America and the wool
producing sections of Asia and Africa.
Rice is largely imported into Europe,
but tlie cheap labor in China and the
West Indies shuts out our American
rice fields. _@*P|
So it is demonstrated by the agri
cultural department that there are but
comparatively few American farm prod
ucts that are in demand in Europe.
Fortunately for the Northwest, these
few are the very products that this sec
tion can furnish, notably cheese, butter
and flax. It Is hinted, however, by the
agricultural department, that our Amer
ican cheese and butter must be im
proved in quality before either can gain
much of a reputation in the European
markets. The idea so popular among
our American dairymen that the meaner
sorts of dairy products are good enough
for foreigners is exploded by the de
partment, and it is urged that if our ex
ports are to be materially enlarged our
American dairymen must give more at
tention to the quality of the cheese and
butter intended for foreign markets.
THOSE PUGET SOUND FORTS.
It is not for us on this side of the line
to criticise . our neighbors across the
Canadian border for adopting such
measures of military defense as they
deem wise, but it does occur to us that
there is an air of menace in the recently
expressed purpose of the Canadian gov
ernment to construct fortifications on
their side of Puget sound, which does
not comport with the -supposed amica
ble relations existing between the two
countries. There is no -apparent neces
sity for the building of fortifications on
Puget Sound, by either country. Yet, if
the Canadians build torts on their side,
it will then become a military necessity
for this country, to .go into the fort
building business also; and altogether
the entrance to Puget sound will pre
sent a hostile appearance that will prob
ably be damaging to the Pacific trade,
to say nothing of the unneigliborly as
pect of it.
There has been a good deal of talk
about annexation recently, which has
possibly prompted the dominion, gov
ernment to take this step, with the idea
that the j building of frontier fortifica
tions would have a restraining effect on
American anxiety for the annexation of
Canada or any part of ' it. If so, the
dominion . government . is mistaken in
American sentiment, and most surely
misunderstands : the., temper -of the
American people. In -the 'i first place,
nothing like forcible annexation has
ever been contemplated, for whatever
talk has been ■ indulged in ron this side
of the line has originated in the sup
posed anxiety of the Canadian people to
be annexed to the United States. If ,
we have been mistaken in this supposi
tion, then all our '. talk ' • amounts to
nothing. In the second place, if there
were a purpose on our part to force an
nexation, a line of forts extending from
Puget sound to the mouth of the St.Law
rence would not deter us from carrying
that : purpose into effect. _ So r that, in :
either . view of \ the : case, the Canadian r
authorities are preparing for a useless
expenditure of a large sum of money in
the construction of their Puget sound
fortifications..* . . ■ -;*.' V
We can see so many ways ■■ that ; the
Canadians can more wisely apply their
surplus cash that we are • astonished I at
these unnecessary •'; military y prepara
tion. Yet it is their business, and not
ours; but if they insist on going ahead,
we will . follow ■ the ' advice . of the do
minion's finance minister, who is quoted
as saying:; "If the Americans object to
our establishing batteries at the entrance
[THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MORNING JUNE 4, 1889.
to] Puget sound, why,' let them . build
forts on the other side.',' That is what
we will do, and if it is to become a game
of making faces at each other, we will
endeavor to play our hand. y We proto.t
against this policy of irritation in time
of peace, but if our protest avail - noth
l ing, then we will accent * it as a provi
dential hastening of events which are to
culminate in annexation.
r PENSION DISTINCTIONS. .
The pension office, even under Tan
nick and Bussky, has sustained one of
: Commissioner Black's decisions. A
cavalry soldier was getting $4 a ■-. month ,
for a hurt to his foot caused by his car-:
bine going oil while he was using- it; to
beat his played-out horse. As this was A
in violation of orders,' it was held; not to
be in line of duty, and ho was cut off.
lie was back for the pension when !
Black went out, but the office has, re-,
fused to restore him. If it had been' a
wooden horse he would have come in, of
course. His case should be as good as
that of the man Powell, who hurt his
knee on a demijohn some weeks after
he had been mustered out. Bussey
holds that he was on the line of duty.
Curious distinctions are now prevalent
; in the pension office. _
The Chicago Times is 'justly : indig
nant that its more sleepy contempo
raries, who are just now awaKeniug to
the magnitude of the Cook county asy
lum scandal, should be engaged in an
effort to rob the Times of the honor it
won in the affair. Fair play is not ; a
common virtue among Chicago news
papers, but we do think that the Times
has so signally distinguished itself in
this business that its rivals ought to be
generous euough to award the honor
that is richly merited. But for the ef
forts of the Times, the people of Chi
cago would yet have been in ignorance
of the horrible condition of affairs in
tlieir insane asylum. ■.;
RACE STATISTICS. W£_\
The current impression has beenJthat
in the Southern climate the colored race
was more prolific than the white. But
the New Orleans Times-Democrat in
sists that where left by itself, with no
visible admixture of white blood, the
negro population falls behind in growth.
If it increases at all, it is very slowly.
This is alleged to be the case in Hayti,
Jamaica and the black counties of the
Carolina coast, as well as other parts of
the South. Figures are adduced in sup
port of this statement. There is no ap
prehension that the South will be over
whelmed by the black population.

THE JOHNSTOWN DEAD.
There is an apparent difficulty in as
certaining the loss of life at Johnstown.
The dead cannot be counted because
they cannot be found. There is no tell
ing how many bodies lie in the great
piles of debris and in the thick mud
that covers the site of the town, nor can
it ever be estimated , how many have
been washed away, never to be seen
again, It was there as elsewhere;
many persons in modest circumstances
had but a limited circle of friends and
acquaintances, and perhaps all within
that circle perished, so that there are
none left to tell the tale of their destruc
It can be safely assumed that at the
time the flood swept down the fated
valley there were at least twenty-five
thousand living souls in the way of the
torrent, It came with such suddenness
and with so much violence that it is al
most beyond human probability that
one-half should escape. So that an es
timate of 12,000 or 15,000 is a very low
one to fix for the number of \ the dead, I
The nearest approximation that can ever
be made to the total loss of life will be
made by taking a : new census and as
certaining the number of survivors.
USE FOR THE SURPLUS.
It is easy to be free-handed and clever
in distributing money that does not be
lone to you. Some new men at Wash
ington have . stimulated impressions of
this sort. Then Dr. Spottswood, a
preacher with elevated views, insists
that every dollar of the surplus shall be
sent to the Southern states and devoted
to the purpose of giving the colored
men a chance to vote and be counted.
From recent legal expositions* it would
seem that a good deal of money was
spent last year in enabling some colored
voters to do duty at ballot boxes in more
than one locality. There are lots of men
about Washington looking for jobs who
will cheerfully disburse the surplus.
REVERENCE FOR TRADITION.
An unwise preacher in Connecticut
disparaged George Washington as the
youthful custodian of the highest verac
ity of his y time, and insisted that
Grant was not a Chesterfield. The
church took the matter up, and the
more they talked the hotter they grew,
until the preacher was forced rto seek
new pastures. They could have over
looked all else, but the rude kicking
away of the hatchet ' story could not be
tolerated. This case should be a warn
ing to those who would disturb history.
The newspaper published by the
president's private secretary discour
ages those who worked so vigorously
with their mouths and now want to be
recognized and rewarded, with the
statement that they were paid in full in
their $50 to $200 a day, and that "serv
ices that are. bought by the day or by
the speech at the high figure that spell
binders demand, lay. the administration
under no obligation to the orator or his
private secretary." That was not the
line of activity upon which reliance was
placed. The efficient forces were
spoken of by Dudley as "trusted men ;
provided with money." V ' ~'~. j
. Mr. Grady, the Atlanta exponent of
advanced thought, embodies his obser
vations and convictions upon an impor
tant social feature, in the statement
that "when a man takes a drink after
10 o'clock at night he generally does it
with a view of getting drunk." If the
saloons closed earlier, probably the men
looking jj for drinks would \ change their
time tables.' A law like that of Minne
sota prohibiting drunkenness is perhaps
needed at Atlanta. :"• ' *•■ '••

A PESTILENCE FEARED.
Fears That the Decaying Corpses
Will Breed Typhus.
Washington, June The Masonic
relief committee which went from
Pittsburg to Johnstown telegraphed
President Harrison this afternoon, urg
ing the appointment of a national com
mission to take charge ' of sanitary af
fairs at the scene of the disaster. It
was urged that the presence of so many
decaying corpses would breed a pesti
lence there besides poiuting the water
of the streams affecting all the country
between Pittsburg and New Orleans.
President Harrison conferred with Gen.
Schofield, 1 who was present at the
White house wheu the message was re
ceived and shortly Surgeon General
Hamilton was sum ed to take part
in the conference. The fact was de
veloped that the national sanitary
crops, if such it may be called, is com
posed of physicians' located at various
points. Dr. Atkinson would confer
with and assist the Pennsylvania state
board of heath in any measures it might
institute in aid of the public health and
comfort, and that Surgeon General
Hamilton would be ready to give advice
or assistance; so that whatever was un
dertaken might be carried forward by
official sanctiou and authority. Instruc
tions in accordance with this decision
was at '-, once sent to Dr. Atkinson by
Surgeon Hamilton. Later in the day
the . receipt of the president's telegram
was acknowledged by the Masonic com
mittee with thanks, and their satisfac
tion with its terms expressed/The fol
lowing telegram was received by Presi
dent Harrison this evening from Gen.
Beaver, who has made his way from
York to Harrisburg: .
Harrisburg, Pa., June 3.— To the Presi
dent, Washington: The sheriff of Cambria
county says everything is quiet aud that he
can control the situation without the aid of
troops. The people are fairly housed and
good ■ order prevails. The supply of food so
far is equal to the demand, but supplies of
food and . clothiug are still greatly needed.
Conservative estimates place the loss of life
at from 5.000 to 10,000, and loss ot property
at from $25,000,000 to $40,000,000. The
people are at work heroically, and will have
a • large ■' force to-morrow clearing away the
debris. The sympathies : of the world are

Lone; Bridge Damaged— -Millions
or Fish Set Free.
Washington, June 3.— After reach
ing the highest mark on record
yesterday afternoon, the Potomac be
gan to fall rapidly, and this morn
ing the streets in South Washing
ton were free from water all along the
river front. It gradually receded
throughout the day, bringing the
wharves once more to view.: Hundreds
of fish were left behind by the receding
stream, and were caught with the hands
by boys and men, who searched through
the wet grass ■"■ of the Smithsonian
grounds and where for them. The
fish commission . spread large nets out
in the river, near : the monument, for
the purpose of recovering as many of
the German carp wbich escaped from
the breeding station as possible. Be
sides the carp, a million young shad two
inches long were set at liberty by the
flood. Several schooners and large
boats have been left high and .' dry.
There are fears expressed that ; the
foundation of ■ the Washington monu
ment might have been seriously dam
aged, and a careful examination will be
made. The long bridge/which it has
been feared all along would „be swept
away by the turbulent river and the
boats and debris which smashed against
it, : remained intact, though badly
strained, until about 2 o'clock this after
noon, when one of the spans next the
draw broke loose and started down
the . river. *' : One other - span will : have
to be cut away, and to-night or to-mor
row the work of repairing the bridge
will begin. It is badly wrecked and
torn, and will cause considerable loss to
the Pennsylvania railroad, which
crosses it to make its southern connec
tions. The *
has 1 brightened : up considerably.; The
Pennsylvania railroad to-day again
made * connection with New York and
places west as far as Harrisburg for the
first time : siuce Saturday. J. Lowrie
Bell, the superintendent of the railway
mail service, states that . the transporta
tion of the mails is in a confused state.
The New York Central is clear, and last
night a special train- containing the ac
cumulated mail for the West was dis
patched. Mail from the West was com
ing East on the same line. The Southern
connections ■ are interrupted, but mail
matter is now- being sent by tbe Chesa
peake Bay line to Norfolk, and thence
to Weldon, N. C. From that point the
communication is maintained. To-mor
row, and perhaps sooner, the Piedmont
Air line ■ will - reach Alexandria, and
then the mails will be sent there from
this city by ferry boats. Mr. Bell states
that he has received no information that
any mail matter has - been ; lost on ac
count ■• of ' the • floods. ' Capt. Folger, In
charge of the navy yard, has reported to
the navy department that the yard can
be cleared up and put in working order

AN APPEAL FOR AID.
Mayor Smith Receives an Urgent
Appeal From the Relief Com
Mayor Smith yesterday received a
touching appeal from the headquarters
of the Johnstown Relief committee ask
ing for aid for the survivors of the Cone
maugh valley disaster. The message,'
dated June 3, reads as follows:
Mayor of ' St. Paul— Reports from Johns
town grow worse aud worse. .; Thousands of
houses with families inside washed * into a
terrible heap aud ; slowly burned, without a
possibility of saving or rescuing the r human
beings. Cut off from aid for thirty hours.
Thousands of • lives and many millions 'of
dollars are gone. May we not appeal to your
generous city to aid the survivors? Money
and ; imperishable " articles sorely needed.
Thieves only kept at bay by armed men.
Please reply. William WcCbebt.
Mayor Smith stated last night that
the communication would be referred
to the city council to-night, with a rec
ommendation that a liberal appropria
tion be . made for the sufferers. The
chamber . of commerce, at its session
yesterday morning, resolved that a sub
scription list should be; opened at the
office of Secre'ary Tallmadge in aid of
the sufferers. W. A. Naylor. superin
tendent of the American Express com
pany, yesterday received the following
telegram from Charles Fargo. vice pres
ident and general manager of the com
This company . will transport, free of
charge, to Pittsburg, its nearest office to
Johnstown, any donations of clothing or
money which are made and shipped by duly
authorized committees at various points.
Donations left with Secretary Tall
madge, of the chamber of commerce,
will be promptly forwarded.
CAPT. GAGEBY SAFE.
He and His Wife Escape Death,
but His Mother and Sister Were
Considerable uneasiness has been felt
at Fort Snelling for the safety of Capt.
J. H. Gageby, of Company D, Third in
fantry, and family, who were known to
have been in ill-fated Johnstown, Pa.,
at the time of the awful calamity there.
Their fears were dispelled yesterday,
however, by a telegram from Capt.
Gageby, stating that he had escaped,
with his wife and children. But the
message stated that, while they were
safe, they had suffered the agony of
seeing Capt. Gageloy's mother and two
of his sisters swept to an awful death
in the raging torrent. The captain, who
was absent on a three months' furlough,
has had his time extended another
month, and though . mourning the loss
of his kindred, has entered heroically
into the work of relieving the
wants of the stricken i people. He
has been appointed acting chief of
police and chief of the guards at Johns
town, and to him has fallen the ardu
ous duty of restraining the human vult
ures who would rob the dead and dying,
and to keep back the morbidly curious
crowds that are flocking in from every
side to retard the work of succor.
NO NEW DEVELOPMENTS.
The Inquest in the Cronin Case
Not Prolific of Sensations.
Chicago, June The evidence
given at the coroner's investigation in
the Cronin case was almost entirely a
repetition of facts already published.
The only new development was the
statement of Carlson, the owner of the
cottage, that P. O. Sullivan, the ice
man, had told them that be was ac
quainted with the mysterious, tenants,
and would be responsible for the rent.
Mrs. Conklin and Frank Scanlan botb
testified in response. to questions that
Dr. Cronin had often said that Alexan
der : Sullivan wanted him out of the
way. and that his friends would know
where to look in case he was murdered.
The inquest will be resumed to-morrow.
Weil-Known Leaders Annul Their
New York, June 3.— lt is announced
that John T. Plunkett and his wife,
Mary H. Plunkett, the well-known
leaders in the Christian Science move
ment, agreed recently to annul their
marriage - ties, owing to the fact
that they no longer regarded themselves
as intended for one another. Mrs.
Plunkett has since married B. Worth
ington. Neither of the ceremonies, it is
said, was conducted with the usual
legal forms. The . facts were not in
tended to become public, - though the
intimate friends of the parties were
aware of them.
A Spider-Web Telephone.
A gentleman was watching some
spiders, when it occurred to him to try
what effect the sound of a tuning-fork
would have upon them. He suspected
that they would take it for the buzzing
of a fly. i^B | Qfl_B9_P i H__P^'
He selected a . large, ugly spider that
had been feasting on flies for two
months. . The spider was at one edge of
its web.' Sounding the fork, the man
touched a thread at -the other side, and
watched the result. Mr. Spider had the
buzzing sound conveyed to him over his
telephone wires, but how was he to
know on which particular wire it was
traveling? , ;
He ran to the center of the web very
quickly and felt all around until he
touched the thread against the other
end of which the fork was sounding; ,
then, taking another thread along, just
as a man would take an extra piece of
rope, he ran out to the fork and sprang
upon it. ■.'i?'PgjSlß-BBiaE_BBS^:
Then he retreated a little way and
looked at the *. fork. He was puzzled.
He had expected to find a buzzing fly.
He got on the fork again and danced
with delight. Evidently the sound was
music to him.
What Her Husband Said.
Though a young man, he was to play
the father, and the daughter chanced to
be a handsome woman. So when he
forgot his part he could think of nothing
better while holding his "child" than to
"Kiss your father." V
And each time when he felt his mem
ory was about to fail he would save him
self by crying out:
"Come to my arms, my child."
The husband of the daughter was
heard to say that he thought "the au
thor repeated himself often."

This latter half ot the "evening wa*
opened by ; the "Jupiter" • symphony is
C, Mozart's .
LAST AND CROWNING MASTERPIECE.
This symphony is divided iuto four
parts. The first, allegro, is an elaborate
ripple of sweet music from beginning
to end, gay and joyous it starts off with
out introduction as if unable to restrain
its expression of happiness. Gradually
exhausting itself, it dies away into a
peaceful sleep, and again springs to life
with its ■-. merry music. As the theme
dies away on one instrument/another
• takes it up, and one follows the other in
a sort of lively fugue, whose
beauties cannot possibly be described.
The andante is a melodious blending ol
sustained notes on muted violins, with
plaintive strains from the oboes and
clarionets. The first part is the most
beautiful, and he must indeed be dull
of ear who could not appreciate its sad
melody. The minuet is composed of
materials of the finest sort, and is es
sentially typical of Mozart. The fresh
grace of the movement and the ex
quisite beauty of the theme make this
one of the works of the great mastei
which will live forever. Following on
the stately beauty of the minuet comes
the complex fugue-like finale. This, to
a cultivated ear, is the most magnifi
cent of the four parts. It is as various
as tuneful, and the complicated music
was played to perfection by the
oichestra. The evening closed with
Mendelssohn's "Lauda Sion," a
fitting pendant to the overture.
: The opening chorus showed the
singers to be thoroughly up in their
business, and the way they watched the
leader's baton showed good training.
Mme. Herbert-Foerster sang the "Sirs
of Judgment" solo in fine style, and the
quartette "Ye Who From His Ways,"
was a splendid bit of work. Mr. Kicket
son was heard for the first time in this
and showed himself to have a fine tenor
voice of great purity. The magnifi
cent oratorio is too well known to
need description. Suffice it to say that
the chorus "did themselves proud."
Their attack was good and their pre
cision excellent. The soloists are be
yond criticism, aod the whole affair
was perfect, with the exception of a
few minor details noted before. If the
concerts to-night and this afternoon are
equally good, the members of the
Gounod club have cause to congratulate
themselves. The programme for the
matinee to-day is one of popular music,
and that for to-night is exclusively
selected from Wagnei.
