The Public Institutions Ar ticle Is the Cause of the Commotion. Members of the Convention Not Above the Suspicion ofßoodleism. A Chicago Burglar Peppered With Bird Shot at St. Charles. Special to the Globe. H-L-SBOBO, N. D., Aug. 11.— mass meeting of the citizens of Ilillsboro and vicinity was held last night to ascertain if anything could be done to change the vote of the constitutional convention at Bismarck on the article permanently locating public institutions. Citizens turned out en masse, indignant speech es were made, and a committee ap pointed to draw up a protest, which will be signed by every voter here, and sent to the convention. A private communi cali ai from Bismarck was read, stating that it was a boodle job, and highly commending the delegates who voted against the article. The following res olutions were passed: Whereas, The constitutional convention row in session at Bismarck has arrogated to itself a right which Is out of the line of its authority by the adoption of an article pro viding for the permanent location of public institutions, which it purposes to submit as a part of the constitution, thus ignoring the right of the people to declare for themselves by their votes the wishes of the majority on subjects pertaining to their welfare, which iB the fundamental principle on which our gov ernment stands, thus compelling them, as there is no other alternative, to either vote to indorse or reject the constitution. There fore be it „ _.', . ' Resolved, By the citizens of Ilillsboro in mass meeting assembled, that we most em phatically protest against such provisions in the body "or the constitution, and denounce it as an usurpation of the rights of the peo ple ; we demand the privilege of voting on the constitution containing only such nec essary articles as may be fundamental as a basis for a state government, and insist that questions legitimately belonging to the legis lative power, such as locating public institu tions, may be stricken out. or let them be Eubmitted separately. in order that the people may voice their wishes without involving the constitution proper. Further, be it Resolved, That we instruct our delegates from Traill county, and c"esire those from other counties to use all their efforts to keep out of the constitution the location of all public institutions. If said article is left In the body of the constitution not a vote will be cast here lor its adoption. THE BISMAKCK VIEW. It Is Said at the Capital the Insti tutions Article Is Popular. Special to the Globe. Bismarck, Dak., Aug. 11. — The Grand Forks Herald's charge that Pres ident Fancher refused to read the pro test from that town to the convention Is absolutely untrue. He gave the tele gram to Clerk Hamilton, and directed him to read it. Hamilton says he was on his feet three times, and was about to read the telegram when he was cut off by motions and other business. The convention was in a hurry to get through Thursday night, and easily enough the protest was skipped; but it was not the fault of the president or chief clerk. The Plaindealer, of Grand Forks, also pays that other telegrams of congratu lation were received and read, but not the protesting message. That is un true. There were no telegrams read that night. A telegram from the governor of Idaho was on the clerk's table, and should have been read, but the convention gave no opportunity. Grand Forks meu admit there would have been no kick if the capital had been located at Giand Forks. James town people frankly say if they can't get it they prefer to give it to Bismarck. If Grand Forks is opposed to the consti tution, it is assumed that the Repub lican delegation to Fargo will not press their candidate before the convention. They can't be against the constitution and at the same time for the state ticket. Repor ts from Valley City, Fargo, May ville, Pembina, Wahpeton, Devil's Lake, Ellendale. Lisbon, Minot and farrington seem to show to show that the constitution is popular in those localities, and that the public building proposition is sure of a big vote from both paities. IT SUITS FARGO, And a Mass Meeting Will Be Held to Commend It. Special to the Globe. Fargo, Dak., Aug. 11.— A mass meet ing is to be held in Fargo to-morrow night to Indorse and commend the action of the constitutional convention in locating the public institutions of North Dakota. Eloquent and Influ ential speakers will be piesent. There Is much excitement. Some towns are dissatisfied with the location, and will attempt to have it changed. There were only nineteen votes against the plan on a ballot in the convention. Meetings will also be held at Casselton, Wheatland and elsewhere in the county, and many Fargoites will go to Bismarck on Monday night's train to insist that there shall be no change in the article. Delegates are being urged everywhere by telegraph to be in their seats on Tuesday morning. A delegate reached Fargo to-night who has ridden forty miles in a wagon to catch a train, bo a. to be sure to be on time. Shot in the Arm. Special to the Globe. St. Charles, Minn., Aug. About 2 o'clock this morning an attempt was made to burglarize the hardware store of S. A. Johnson & Co. The burglars had succeeded in removing a panel from the rear door, and was in the act of unfastening the door, when R. E. Johnson, who was awakened by the noise, filled the burglar's arm with bird shot fired from a shotgun. He was captured about an hour afterward in the livery barn of N.N. Pike. He cave his name as James Reynolds, and claims to be from Chicago. Gored to Death. Special to the Globe. Winona, Minn., Aug. 11.— George Zink, a prominent citizen of Winona, was gored to death by a vicious bull this afternoon. Zink lives south of the city, and has a largo milk business. This afternoon he sent his hired man to drive a bull in from a pasture. The man returned and said the bull looked ugly. He did not cars to tackle him. Zink then went after the bull himself. and the enraged bull sprang at him. DAILY ST. PAUL GLOBE. He was unable to escape and was gored to death, and his body horribly man gled. He was an old settler, highly re spected, and leaves a family. Congress Need Not Act. Chamberlain, S. D., Aug. 11.— report extensively circulated that con gress must ratify the Sioux Treaty be fore the lands are thrown open is a mis take. It will only need the president's proclamation after the commission re ports to make the lands a part of the public^ domain. THE GEORGIA DUEL. Graphic Description of the Events Preceding It. Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 11.— A special to the Constitution from the Williamson- Calhoun dueling field says: On the Field, Aug. 10.— Daylight has gone aud darkness is here. The train comes to a halt so near the state line some parties think that they are in Georgia. Capt. Jackson and Mr. King have left the car. The train is standing upon a deep field with a high cut in front of it; in fact, the cow-catcher is actually in the cut. Dense, heavy timbers are on all sides. Trees, big and little, old and young, are to be seen only. A thick, heavy cloud hangs over everything, but morning is rapidly drawing near and the full moon shows occasionally. There is a deep feeling of awe over all, pos sibly except two gentlemen, who are so soon to attempt each other's life. On the outside Capt. Jackson and Mr. King are wandering through the woods searching for a spot. As they move along arm in arm they talk familiarly and pleasantly. A place is found and Capt. Jackson takes the choice of positions. Mr. King takes the choice of weapons. The prin cipals leave the coaches withDr.Cooper, Dr. Beatty and a few spectators. Capt. Jackson places Mr. Calhoun with his back almost squarely against the heav ily clouded moon; then the distance is stepped off. Mr. Williamson takes his position. Dr. Cooper drops on his knees and opens' his surgical case, knives, etc., while bandages are laid out upon the ground. Dr. Beatty, near Mr. Williamson, does the same. Then Mr. King produces a pair of pis tols and the crowd gathers around, except Messrs. Calhoun and William son, who stand with right side to right side just where they were placed. "Gentlemen." said Dr. Cooper, "must this be?" Neither gentlemen author ized to speak answered, aud Dr. Cooper, realizing that he had done all he could to prevent the fight, walks to his case of instruments. Then Capt. Seay comes forward and asks to adjust it, and is so persistent that he has to be carried away almost bodily. Capt. Jackson is unacquainted with the gun. It is a double-acting Smith & Wesson, 42-caliber, hammerless and with safety attachment. The captain soon learns the weapon and hands it so Mr. Calhoun, at the same time explaining it. Mr. King does the same for Mr. Williamson. Nothing more remained to be done. Capt. Jackson took a posi tion. The word was given. In rapid succession six shots rang out. One came from Mr. Calhoun's pistol and five from Mr. Williamson's. Then the colloquy occurred which ended in the adjustment of the difficulty on terms honorable to each. _• - BLOODSHED PROMISED. A Bad Outlook at the Hecla Coke Works. Greensburg, Pa., Aug. Another outbreak is expected to occur at the Hecla coke works in the morning. The Huns at Mammoth held a secret meet ing last night ane decided to renew the fight Monday and prevent the men at Hecla United and the other works In that locality from going to work. Mes sengers were sent here this evening to notify the sheriff of the intention, and a posse was at once organized consisting of forty men with Winchester repeating rifles and sent to the Hecla works. Assistant Superintendent Rowe came hereto-night. He says the Huns are in a terrible state of excitement, and it may be that the outbreak will occur sooner than expected. Engineer Green, who was beaten by the desperate mob yesterday, is in a precarious condition, and will probably die. Another of the injured, who had a rusty pick sunk into his shoulder, will also die. Some of the workmen are afraid to go near the works, and have not been seen since the raid yesterday. The Huns say they will not allow work to proceed at Hecla until the advance is given them at Mam moth. There are not more than a half dozen Americans in the mob. The dep uties who left here to-night carried forty pounds of ammunition, and it is expected, from the appearance of the men, that blood will flow freely if an outbreak should occur. WAS IT AN ACCIDENT? An Express Messenger Found Shot Dead in His Car. San Antonio, Tex., Aug. 11— When the east-bound Southern Pacific train reached Roseburg Junction yesterday morning at 4 o'clock, it was found necessary to break open the car of the Wells-Fargo Express company to find out what was the matter with J. H. Graham, the messenger. He was lying on his back dead with a bullet hole just under the left eye. His pistol with one empty chamber was found in a pigeon hole of one of the money safes with the muzzle pointed toward the dead man. It is supposed the revolver ex ploded while Graham was leaning over the safe arranging his cash. He was single, about thirty years old, and came from Brooklyn, N. "_"., where his body will be shipped for interment. THREE WOMEN KILLED. Horrible Triple Murder in West Virginia. Charleston, W. V.", Aug. 11.— A horrible butchery is reported from Mc- Dowell county. The particulars are meager. It appears that a widow named Gillis lived in a remote district of the county with two daughters about grown. They were poor, but respectable peo ple. Friday neighbors found all three dead. They had evidently been crim inally assaulted and murdered. There is absolutely no clue to the perpetrators of the deed. ma . Stamped to Death. SnELBYViLLE, Ind., Aug. 11.— Three brothers named David, Joe and Albert Sill, brutally murdered Edward Stand ford, their sister's husband, five miles north of here Friday night. Tho whole party was intoxicated, and Joe Sill abused Stanford for not treating. Then he tried to hit him with a rock. Stand ford dodged the missile and knocked Sill down, and was in turn knocked down by David Sill and set upon by all the brothers and stamped to death. The murderers were placed in jail. Fessenden Is Better. Cape May, N. J., Aug. Hon. Samuel Fessenden, who had his right thigh fractured while fishing off Chin coteague, Va., on Friday last, in com pany with Senator Quay and others, is rapidly improving at the Stockton hotel here. His serious pains have left him. OUR SUNDAY LETTERS Shall the Mail Be Distributed Six or Seven Days a Week? Postmaster General Wana maker Threatens to Give the Matter Attention. Commissioner Lyman Talks at Length on Civil Serv ice Reform. Secretary Proctor Preparing to Give the War Depart- j ment a Shaking Up. Washington, Aug. 11.— The question of Sunday work in the government postal service is seriously engaging the attention of postoffice officials. The question is not new to the department. Fifty years ago it was considered, and since that time various rulings and or ders relating to Sunday work by gov ernment postal employes have been made. These orders have been as dif ferent as they have been numerous, no two of them being alike. With the growth of the postal service Sunday work has increased, and how to avoid working Sundays, and at the same time supply the demands of the public, is a problem which to-day seems to be no nearer solution than it was years ago, or at any time since the question first attracted the attention of postoffice offi cials. There seems to be a direct con flict between the religious and business elements of the country in urging a set tlement of this question. The former, have demanded through petitions, letters and appeals that Sunday work in the postal service should be reduced to a minimum, while the business element have con stantly urged increased postal facilities regardless of whether the worK was performed on Sundays or week days. This question of Sunday , work was prominently brought to the postoffice officials during the administration of President Cleveland, and when Mr. Vilas was postmaster general. Congress had passed a law providing that letters having a special delivery stamp ou them should be immediately DELIVERED on their receipt at any postoffice in the United States where the free delivery system was In operation. This was construed by Mr. Vilas to mean that this class of letters should be delivered seven days in the week (on Sundays as well as on week days), and he issued In structions to that effect. Then there immediately arose a clamor from re ligious bodies throughout the country against the desecration of the Sabbath, and petitions and memorials piled into the postoffice department by the thousand, asking that the instructions be revoked. On*the other hand, the bus iness men of the country heartily sup ported the innovation. The sentiment against Sunday work was so strong, so respectable and so earnest that Presi dent Cleveland took the matter under consideration, and the instructions of Mr. Vilas were withdrawn and post masters left to their discretion in carry ing out the special delivery law on Sun days. It remains In that condition to day. In some cities this class of letters are not delivered at all on Sunday; in others only during a few hours of the day, and in no two cities are the de liveries made at the same hour. This whole question of Sunday work, special letter delivery, window letter delivery, railway postal car work, star route and steamboat routes will be taken up and considered by Postmaster General Wanamaker in all its different phases on his return from his vacation. Post- i office officials look forward to its settle ment with interest, but, because of the conflicting interests involved, hardly expect a solution of the question that will be satisfactory to the religious ele ment, the business element, and the government itself. STRAW MEN SET UP By the Newspapers to Be Knocked Down. Washington, Aug. Civil Service Commissioner Lyman spoke last night to members of the Six O'Clock club about civil service reform. There were quite a number of prominent people, invited guests and members present, among them Mr. Lyman, Gen. Muzzey and Commissioner of Pensions Tanner. Mr. Lyman admitted that the civil serv ice has many faults; threw out sugges tions for improvement, and ridiculed the idea of a bureaucracy as the out come of civil service reform. He said: "When you are going to improve a thing you must find its characteristics and necessities. I presume the discus sion of the civil service with which we are engaged relates to the administra tive functions of the government, and not to its legislative and judicial side. We are to improve the service in the great custom houses and places where the -revenues are collected and in the handling of the mail. The way to Improve this service is to improve the people who administer it. Up to th. present time the people of the country have been fortunate to a very great degree in having in the pub lic service men of character, honesty and ability. 1 believe that is true in spite of, and not because of, the method by which they have been selected, and true because it is a fact which 1 think everybody will concede, that the great mass of people in this country are worthy to hold office, and it's only now and then that a man gets into office who is a disgrace to it. But to get in the service better people some method must be adopted. We must consider the dif ficulties in the way of a change of methods. They cannot be changed in a day by an order; it must be a process of "evolution, and that is not accom plished in a moment. I believe we are now in the midst of an evolution, and this change must come through the people who constitute the service. There are two ways to improve the service, and both depend upon the people who are employed to do the public work. One is to get In at the bottom men of better education.broader views and a more thorough purpose to do the public work honestly and as a life business. They should not be ap pointed because they belong to a CLIQUE OR FAMILY, but because they are American citizens and are ready to seek a career in the public service, Ido not think there is the slightest danger of a bureaucracy or an officeholding aristocracy. When that is talked about the dignity and in telligence of the American people is dis credited, it is nonsense. The people SAINT PAUL, MINN., MONDAY C MORNING, AUGUST 12, 1889. of this country will take care of that; These young men will have the public service* at heart and will be loyal to the government, not to their particular, chief. Another way to improve tne service is to take men in at the top, and there is where I should fix the doors of the service, the intervening doors closed absolutely to outsiders. The men to be taken in at the top should be those known generally as receiving presiden tial appointments. All other place should be filled by promotion based upon merit. I recognize that a party must control the government in carry ing out a policy, but tr.ese men who are appointed heads of departments should be business men, for a great deal more depends upon this quality than outsiders think. The difference between a good and poor administration does not depend mainly on the men who do the work, but largely is controlled by men who direct the work. 1 have come to the conclusion that the best method of selecting the men for lower grades is by examinations which shall be open to all American citizens. The charges of the slow changes in the government service are not well sustained. Changes are more numerous than most of the people suppose. The employes in the classified service of the postoffice de partment undergo a complete change in five years, which fact is largely due to the small compensation paid to these people. Of the 8,000 employes of the classified service in Washington there is an annual change of about 500. In regard to the criticisms which are heard of questions asked by the commission, I wish to state that for the past six years I have read the newspapers to find out what sort of questions the peo ple objected to, and there has never been a single instance that has fallen under my observation where the ques tion criticised had ever been asked by the. commission. They were always straw men, put up to be knocked down." .; # • WHOM WILL IT STRIKE? t Secretary Proctor to Stir Up Army r y.yy^-:^'.A'y Officers. : Y-Yki Washington, Aug. 11.— The Herald to-day says: Secretary Proctor has been looking into the question of detail of army officers for duty in the war de partment, with a view of acquainting himself as to the length of time such officers have been stationed here, their, particular duties, and whether or not; the time of duty and absence from their respective regiments have not exceeded the limit allowed. It is generally under stood in army circles that upon the re turn of the secretary from Bar Harbor, next week, a general shaking up of the ; officers will take place. Where the lightning will strike no one seems to know, but the general impression is that the electric current will be well charged. Of course this does not include the offi cers of the. adjutant : general's depart ment or other staff officers. It is in tended for officers of the line especially, a great many of whom are on special duty, and in a majority of instances hard duty. The purpose of the secretary, as near as can be ascertained; is to sup plant these officers with otliers of the same grade, thus giving those who have served on the frontier for a number oi years an opportunity to have some of the pleasant duty of the army, as well as tne practical experience, which has been their case for years. DESERTIONS INCREASING, And Army Officers Giving the Mat ter Attention. Washington, Aug. 11.— Army officers of late have been looking into the causes which deplete the army. Late statistics show that desertions are on the increase. During the six months ending June 30, 1889, the records show an increase of 258 over the number re ported for the corresponding period of last year. For the past six months of the present year there were 1,467 deser tions against 1,209 for the same period of 1888. Fully seven-eighths of the de sertions took place during the first year of enlistment. The Importance of these figures is appreciated by Gen. Schofield and Adjt. Gen. Kelton, each of whom nave given the subject much thought and discussion lately, and some plan of action which will look to ward the modification of the existing articles of war will receive their earn est advocacy and be presented to con gress. The numerous desertions, es pecially from the larger army posts, are the source of much anxiety to the offi cials in the war department, and they will strike at the root of the evil if such a thing is posiible. Quite a number of officer! believe that one of the best ways to break up desertion in the array would be to put a stop to the soldier doing so much extra work. When a man enters the army he expects to be come a soldier. When he finds that in addition to bis duty as a soldier he has to do all the work around the garrison and officers' quarters, the soldier foeling dies out, and he deserts at the very first opportunity, generally in the first year of his enlistment. A decrease in the number of useless calls now prevalent at army posts will also, it is said, result in fewer desertions._ . DREW THEIR CURTAINS, - But Sold Liquor All Day Just the Same. Chicago, Aug. 11.— 50,000 people in Hyde Park, recently annexed to Chi cago, were for the first time in a long, period treated to-day to open saloons on Sunday. The state law closing saloons Sunday is a dead letter in Chicago, and the Hyde Park saloonkeepers have suc ceeded after . much maneuvering in reaching an understanding with the authorities whereby the statute will hereafter be nullified in Hyde Park. Every saloon in the big district was in full blast to-day, the signal for opening having been an official order that a"l barrooms should, in accordance with the city ordinance, keep curtains drawn on Sunday. The regulation in regard to curtains was religiously en forced by the police. New York, Aug. 11.— accordance with orders from headquarters, the police were especially active in making arrests for violation of the excise law to-day, and reached a total of 108. On Her Wedding's Eve. Wabash, Ind., Aug. 11.— Mary Lambert, a widow residing with her mother on Water street, this city, died early yesterday morning, having taken an overdose of morphine after 11 o'clock Friday night. She had been quite ill with sick headache for some time and took the drug Friday. Being unable to sleep she got up in the dark and took an enormous dose, and when found by the family was In the throes of death. Mrs. Lambert, who leaves three chil dren, was twenty-five years of age, and had completed preparations for her marriage last evening to Hezekiah Williams. . Orphan Asylum Destroyed. Augusta, Ga., Aug. 11.— The Au gusta orphan asylum, a magnificent five-story building, was almost entirely destroyed by fire to-day. The fire de partment fought nobly, but was handi capped by a lack of water. The struct ure cost over 8100,000 and was insured for $60,000. All the children were got ten out safely. Two firemen were-iu jured by falling timber. . * I liLLY IS_A_RATTLER. St. Paul's Third Baseman I Wins a Game by His Ter rific Batting.

Special to the GloDe. -' St. Joseph, Aug. 11.— southeast corner of the St. Joseph Infield was blown away by a gust of wind early in to-day's game, and before it was set up St. Paul had tallied five times. Then the outfield came in and batted the game up to a tie, but tne pace was too fast, and in the tenth inning, after Ilawes had been declared safe at first on the ever-present questionable de cision, and sent to second by Murphy's i Vcrifice, Reilly, who did all the batting ft* St.' Paul; lifted the .ball over the left field fence and brought in the only earned runs made by the visitors. Devlin pitched a splendid game, and would have won easily had he been e'iveu any support. Meekin pitched like a house on fire, and was backed up splendidly, Reilly making the only costly error, an overthrow of first, on which Shellhasse made the circuit in the second. Carroll's right field work, Reilly's terrific batting, and the battery work /Of both teams gave the large crowd present a taste of base ball they will not soon forget. Curtis' single and steal, and Kreig's single gave St. Joseph her first run. Reilly's over throw of first yielded number two. Shellhasse's base on balls, Devlin's sac rifice, McGarr's base on balls, Curtis' double and Kreig's sacrifice gave the home . team enough to tie the score. Ardner's error and Reilly's double sent Murphy across the plate in the first, Miller's base on balls, a muffed third' strike and Reilly's single scored the short stop in the third. Arduer's error of Miller's easy grounder, Cartrieht's error of the same thing from Hawes, Reilly's single and Werrick's hit gave the visitors three in the fifth, and the game was won in the tenth by Reilly's home run.

London*, Aug. 11.— Mrs. Maybrlchi yesterday had another long interview with her mother, who was permitted to remain in her cell for several hours. The condemned woman was much bet« ter to-day than she has been at any time since the death sentence was pro nounced. She has been assured by all who have access to her that everything possible is being done to save her from the terrible fate which stares her in the face, nnd she has in a great measure re* covered her spirits and now looks more hopefully into the future. The peti tions to the home secretary in her be half are assuming immense proportions, hundreds of people in different parts ol England having interested themselves to secure signatures. Petitions wera circulated in all the dissenting churches in Liverpool to-day, the ministers tak ing pains to explain to their congrega tions that the statements that the ex pense of the defense had been borne by Brierly, the unfortunate woman's para, mour, were untrue. BOULANGER'S MISTRESS Makes Damaging Disclosures in Letters to Louise Michel. Paris. Aug. 11.— The high court ot impeachment, on going into secret ses sion yesterday, had a mass of docu mentary evidence placed before them by the procureur general, Including many letters written by Boulanger himself.

FILTHY IRISH JAILS. Many Prisoners Contract- Typhu^ Fever in Them. London, Aug. 11.— Reports of the un« healthy condition of the prisons in which Irish political prisoners are con fined ars causing considerable excite ment, and the government naturally comes in for its share of tho blame. Many of the more excitable critics of Mr. Balfour do not hesitate to charge that the worst pest holes among the Irish prisons are purposely selected for the incarceration of those convicted of violations of the crimes act. The con dition of the prison at Falearragh par ticularly is referred to as a disgrace to civilization, and it is pointed out that, although the attention of the authorities has been called to it repeatedly within the past year, nothing has ever been done to remove the danger of an epi demic, to which its filthy condition has been a standing invitation. On Thurs day last John McGee was released from this pest hole in a pitiable condition, and when he reached his home it was only to die of typhus fever. Another prisoner named Frlese, who was only released a few days a_o, is also dead from typhoid fever contracted while la confinement. THI.

The students afterward presented baskets of flowera to Mme. Carnot. The letters of Bou langer which were presented before th. senate court tend to prove that Bou langer shared with Buret the commis sions paid by army contractors. Mme. Pourpre, the mistress of Boulanger, haj written to Louise Michel certain dls closures concerning the general. Profoundly Peaceful.
