Ik speaking of the new Sioux lands

A Sioux City base ball umpire has
brought a 55,000 suit against one of the

Cleveland, 0., has just issued its
directory and finds 87,236 names in it,

2,617 names since last year seems to
them like a boom. It-is not rapid like
Western towns, but it is full of Stand
ard Oil millionaires. The local papers
speak of three being the lowest multi
ple used anywhere. That figure would
give the Twin Cities about 402,000 popu

THE POLITICAL CAULDRON.
The average Minnesota politician is a
firm believer in the 'truthfulness of the
old adage that is the early bird which
catches the worm. On the strength of
this belief they are now industriously
at work setting up the pins for next
year's convention. That there is to be
a triangular fight over the governorship
is a matter of common notoriety, and
that the succession to Gov. Davis' place
in the senate is the objective point in
the minds of most of the aspirants seems
to be equally well understood. The
senior senator is still himself in the
ring, with the full determination to be
his own successor; and it is hinted
around that his end of the contest in the
gubernatorial struggle will be held up
by ex-Gov. McGill as proxy. The
Merriam-Washburn combination of
last season holds over, and to all out
ward appearances holds the vantage
ground as well. The really disturbing
element is the new-born ambition of
Secretary Windom to use the guberna
torial office as a stepping stone to the
senate, and it is that which has pro
duced so much excitement and activ
ity in the camps of the other
candidates. It so happens that Mr.
Windom's position as a cabinet offi
cer makes him a most formidable
candidate, for the simple reason that he
can control the entire federal patronage,
to the exclusion of both the senators
and the entire delegation in the lower
house of congress. Mr. Windom's in
clination to run Minnesota politics on
the line marked out by himself has al
ready been manifested, to the sorrow of
both the senators from this state. It is
given out semi-officially at Washington
that there will be no more important ap
pointments made in Minnesota until
the terms of the various Democratic in
cumbents have expired. This will run
most of these appointments over the
time for holding the next slate conven
tion, and will thus afford Mr. Windom,
as patronage dispenser, a great advan
tage over his competitors for the guber
natorial nomination. For campaign pur
poses an appointment not yet conferred
is worth a score ot appointments that
have been made, for there are at least
twenty men expecting the office that
only one man can fill. If the applicants
for the various offices can be made to
understand that the chances of ap
pointment will depend upon their loy
alty to the man who dispenses the of
fices, that of itself will organize an
army of Windom workers in the state.
It is also stated that President Har
rison has been displeased by the
rumor that has reached his ears of the
Blame movement that has been or
ganized in Minnesota, and with which
both the senators are supposed to be
identified; consequently he will give
his trusted cabinet officer a carte
blanche privilege to use the appointing
power in an attempt to burst the Blame
boom. These are the reasons why such
apprehensions prevail among the home
politicians, and why the political pot
has been started to boil so early in the
day. In the meantime disinterested
spectators are watching the hubbub
with increased interest, yet with a sort
of an undercurrent of belief that it will
result in the old way of the biggest
purse bagging the game.
The annual statement, published by
the New York Independent, of the
numerical strength of the various re
ligious bodies of the country does not
warrant any theories of religious de
cadence, so far as church membership
is an index. The communicants of the
seven leading religious sects aggregate
about 16,000,000, which is probably
about a half of the persons over eighteen
years of age. There are many church
members under eighteen, but they are
offset by the numerous small denomina
tions not included in the figures. The
Methodists lead in churches and mem
bers, the Catholics second in members
and the Baptists third in strength, with
more preachers than either of the others.
The increase of members the past year
Is given as 887,000, which is well up in
proportion to the population. It is
probable that a third of those who at
tend churches or are active supporters
of them are non-members. It would
seem to follow then that the churches
are easily dominant in influence, or can
be by virtue of their strength.
The report of the government com
mission, consisting of a member each
from Illinois, Pennsylvania and South
Carolina, which has devoted a great
deal of time to the investigation of hog
cholera, gives a mass of information
that will be read with interest. As the
annual loss by the diseases among swine
that pass as cholera is estimated at $*-
-000,000, the voluminous pages of the re
port will De eagerly scanned for definite
suggestions of relief. Hog growers
have been experimenting and testing
remedies for many years, and the hogs
have gone on dying with small regard
to their efforts. This commission seems
to be composed of capable scientific
gentlemen, but they do not appear to
have found out anything certain about
the diseases that are so destructive to
the great industry. They do not urge
either innoculatiou or extermination of
infected animals, which are the meth
ods chiefly advocated by those who dis
cuss the subject. The situation is not
made more hopeful by the report.
THE SIOUX RESERVATION.
People in the vicinity of the lands of
the Sioux reservation to be opened
protest vigorously against the represen
tation sent out from Washington, that
the action of the commission must be
reviewed by congress before the presi
dent can declare the lands open to set
tlers. This would, of course, curry the
matter into the winter, and defer en
trance upon the lands till next spring.
The law has not been so understood by
those active in securing it, and it would
necessitate utterly useless delay. It is
an absurd view, and involves bad faith
to the Indians, as well as suffering and
annoyance to the people who have so
long been waiting to enter the supposed
Canaan. Congress specified the terms,
the Indians have complied with them,
and if it is now optional with congress to
approve or disapprove, the Indians
may well doubt the fairness of the
transaction. It is not believed the
president will so understand the mat
ter. There should be as little delay as
possible in opening the way to settlers.
Whether the convention in North Da
kota has taken a wise course or not in
attempting to permanently settle the
location of the capital and other public
institutions, is not quite evident from
the present developments. There is no
doubt that it will excite strong antago
nism in many localities not favored, and
if embodied in the instrument, and not
as an amendment to be voted on sepa
rately, it will apparently endanger the
success of the constitution. It is an as

sumption of authority not contemplated
in the election of the convention, and
will assuredly provoke bitter opposi
tion. There are always some weights
in an instrument of that kind, and if
this fatally adds to them, it will prove
to be unwise. Voting down the consti
tution means a delay of some little time
to admission, and no doubt the conven
tion assumes that the eagerness for
statehood will override objections to the
constitution. This is doubtful, but the
places that get the plums maybe strong
enough to outvote the others.
GOOD FOR REPAIRS.
Some Ingenuous people gravely and
elaborately argue that the reputed dis
covery that surprising results are ob
tained by the injection of animal es
sence under the cuticle are overwrought
in the popular phraseology. They in

fusion to restore and rebuild. The ex
hausted tissues and fibers cannot be
made new by such application. It is
not probable that any considerate per
son has been deceived by the popular
badinage or facetious picturing. The
evidence is hardly open to discredit
that very remarkable immediate re
sults are produced, and it is probable
it will be found a very valuable acces
sion to physical science; but no thought
ful person is likely to be misled into an

life, or permanent restoration to the
vigor of youth. It is not impossible,
however, that it may be a very efficient
agent in removing clogs to the opera

materially in restoring healthful ac

The Mankato Herald didn't believe in
the Scheffer law making drunkenness a

St. James Journal.
The Washington correspondent of the
Minneapolis Tribune says that only the
Democrat and mugwump papers are at
tacking Tanner and demanding his dis
missal. As the Tribune itself made the
same demand it will have to be rated as
a Democratic paper. No one would sus
pect it of being a mugwump.— Caledonia
Minneapolis is still ahead of St. Paul,
for the former has had a hydrophobic

difference in the result of the census
next year.— Lea Enterprise.
That Gov. Merriam's money brought
him to the gubernatorial chair no one
can truthfully deny (and it is to be
hoped that the almighty dollar will have
less influence among all parties in the
future), yet he has more backbone than
he was credited with, even by his
friends, before election. All his ap
pointments have shown this, and we
admire him for it.— Little Falls Herald.
The beautiful white-winged harmony
which hovered over the Republican
party in Minnesota last fall has been
scared off so far that she will doubtless
be unable to return in time to spread
peace over the camp a year hence, by
Heatwole, Farnham, Todd and others.
They freely admit that many of the vic

W.M. Todd was a McGill man. There
fore he was made assistant insurance
commissioner. Therefore he continued
a McGill man. But McGill had to give
place to Merriam. Then Todd had to
give place to Dearth. Then Todd be
came more of a McGill man than ever.
He went home, trained, dieted, stimu
lated, rose up and came down on Gov.
Merriam.— Red Wing Republican.
Judging from the tone of Mr. Todd's
letter he intends to make some of the
officeholders toddle out of office two
years hence. In his letter he says it is
as hard to get an audience of Gov.
Merriam as with the queen of England.
And why not? Don't Mr. Todd know
that the governor of any state in the
union holds a much more honorable
position than Queen Vie, or any other
queen?— Red Lake News.
W.M.Todd, late deputy ' Insurance
commissioner, now comes out in scath
ing denunciation of Gov. Merriam,
charging him with usurping the power
expressly given by law to the insurance
commissioner to appoint his own deputy,
and forcing an appointment of his own
to fulfil an ante-election promise made
by his friend Heatwole. He also charges
Merriam with having bought every
office he has filled, and he says he lias
plenty of ammunition left to continue
the war on the governor.— Le Sueur
*W hat's all this kicking against Gov.
Merriam for? if he paid for the office,
as it has been often said and is gener
ally believed he did, in good hard cash,
has he not a right to do as he pleases
with the plums. It he sees fit to bounce
Mr. McGill's appointees that's his
business. -The office of governor is Mr.
Merriain's own private property, and
considering the fact that It is his prop
erty, we think the governor has been
very kind to let any one dictate what he
shall do with the plums.— Kanabec
The St. Paul Globe ou Friday last
said: "Let us Irrigate." Now it would
appear to the average observer that at
the rate we Americans are punishing
beer, corn juice and other exhilarating
tonics we are extensively engaged in the
irrigating business and spend millions
annually therefor. We don't know
whether this was a general invitation or
only special to the editor's Democratic
friends. Probably the Globe man had
been out with friends the night before
and felt that a cocktail was necessary to
good editorial work.— Faribault Pilot.
Republicans of the Third district are
beginning to realize to their chagrin
that their congressman will cut but a
very sorry figure in congress. They are
beginning to get acquainted with him.
When he shied his castor into the ring
last fall and picked up the "gag" of

lovely because Maj. Strait stood sponsor

display of the densest kind of back
woods ignorance, the "acrimony" is any
thing but pleasant.— Dawson Sentinel.
The Twin Cities of the Northwest are
singularly and alarmingly silent regard
ing the world's fair in l."***. Other cities
of far less egotism and greed are clam
oring for the plum; and it is already a
foregone conclusion in the minds of
their citizens, that the great manifesta
tion of the world's joy and skill will be
held in New. York, Washington, Chi
cago and St. Louis. In the estimation
of other people, neither one stands a
very flattering show so long as the Twin
Cities are grasping for the whole earth;
and surely the world's fair will be a
second ark to hold the choicest samples
of the earth's production.— Dodge Re

I notice in some of the journals ef
forts to east ridicule upon the presi
dent's son, who is traveling in Europe,
and as it happens to be within my
knowledge that that which is said in his
disparagement is untrue, I desire to
correct misapprehensions resulting
from apparently artistic and persistent
misrepresentation. It is mentioned in
the American newspapers, and not, I
think, in those of England, that the
queen's health is precarious; that she
has recently become a great sufferer
from sciatica and lumbago, afflicting
her especially in the hours when
she has been accustomed to sleep,
and that the result is insomnia
and serious loss of strength.
Notwithstanding her enfeebled condi
tion she invited, or as they say sum
moned, the American minister and his
wife and the son of President Harrison
to dine with her at Windsor, and stay all
night at the castle, and those who knew
of her illness regarded the extension of
this civility with some surprise. She
is, however, well known to entertain a
kindly feeling towards the American
people and to have a respectful recollec
tion of President Lincoln and sympathy
with his family; and it is a fact that the
son of President Lincoln has been re
ceived with the greatest consideration
by all classes of people in England, and
it is understood that the queen, in in
viting President Harrison's son to dine
with her, was really extending
a civility to the president him
self, and thereby showing her good
feeling for the American people. Noth
ing of an extraordinary character oc
curred during the visit of Minister and
Mrs. Lincoln and Russell Harrison to
the Queen at Windsor.- They wore, of
course, dress suits, as they would if
they were invited to a stato dinner at
the White house, and all that is said
about Mr. Harrison's solicitude about
proper apparel is purely gratuitous and
silly gossip. It was the purpose of Mr.
Harrison in going to London to give at
tention to some business affairs that
concern him, but the unexpected civil
ities shown him by the queen and pre
mier as the president's son, according to
English etiquette, prohibited him from
presenting himself in London as a busi
ness man; and he has been intelligent
and careful in observing the proprieties.

of course. I never talked to a board of
trade man ten minutes without hearing
something about the remarkable old
man. He seems to be as persistent in get
ting into men's minds and on their
tongues as was Charles I. in Mr. Dick's
Memoirs. This man said:
"You can find 'Old Hutch 'on one of
the stools at a cheap lunch counter down
near the Board every morning of the
week. Goes in there regularly and
orders two soft-boiled eggs and rolls,
aud he looks at the check as closely as
any poor clerk in town. How's that for
a man with his money? Millions and
millions of wealth, and eating a 15 or 20
cent breakfast. But that's his style.
He surprised me the other day. As long
as I've been around the Board 1 never
saw Old Hutch' wear anything but a
black slouch hat; butthe other day he
appeared with one of the new style
straw with straght. stiff brim. Nobody
could look at him without smiling,
and the old man 'tumbled' and wore it
only one day. He doesn't care for dress,
or comfort, or good living, anyway. He
has just one passion in life, and that's
gambling. He is the first man on the
floor of the Board always, and the last
one to leave it. The excitement of the
trading hours is the meat and drink of
his life. He revels in it. Imagine, if
you can. the supreme delight to such a
man of running a corner such as he
manipulated last December. But he's
almost parsimonious in his daily life,
I saw him at the theater onetime alone,
sitting in a parquet seat without a soul
to talk to. He's a oner; that's what
he is." _____^__

Some True Stories About the Re
sults of the Tender Passion.
San Lucas Herald.
Thirty-six years ago William Hart,
then a widower with two children, and
now a respected citizen of San Lucas,
was married to"a young lady in Charles
ton, 111. They lived in the East a short
time, and then turned their faces to
ward the Golden Gate. Finally they
reached Marysvllle and took up their
residence at Strawberry Valley, which
is situated a short distance from that
city. They had lived .together now
nearly nine years, and their wedded
life had been blessed by the birth of
two children, but death had entered the
family and claimed them both. All
these years they had lived together, but
at last an evil day drew nigh, and, like
many another young couple, they sepa
rated, each taking an opposite path in
Three weeks after the separation a
son was born to Mrs. Hart. Some time
afterward Mr. Hart chanced to see his
only living son, who at that time was
but three ■ months old. During
the lapse of years which in
tervened between that time
and the present, Mr. Hart
heard nothing from his son or his for
mer wife. He knew not whether they
were dead or had taken up their abode
in some far-away country. Our story
is now centered in the Los Burrows
mining district on the west coast of
Monterey county, where during the
past few weeks certain very strange
things have come to light. Mrs. E.
Caldwell, who is a daughter of Mr. Hart
by his first wife, is living with her hus
band at the mines, where they keep a
About six weeks since two men from
Washington territory came to Los Bur
ros and engaged board and lodgings at
the Caldwall hotel. The names of these
gentlemen were Thomas Keiley and T.
B. Hart, the former desiring to invest
in land. It seems that there is no regu
lar postoffice at the mines, but all the
mail is received at the Caldwell house
and delivered to the proper per
sons. One evening, as Mrs. Cald
well handed a letter to T. B. Hart, she
remarked that her name was Hart be
fore her marriage. This aroused a
thinking in the mind of Mr. Hart, and
he at once became* convinced that he
had found his sister. He informed Mr.
Keiley of the fact, but the latter
thought the idea an absurd one.
Finally, however, Keiley had a talk
with E. Caldwell, who told him certain
facts which proved that T. B. Hart and
Mrs. E. Caldwell were indeed related.
The meeting of the two after these facts
were ascertained was of course a very
joyful one. Mrs.Caldwell came to town
Sunday and informed her father that
his son, whom he had not seen for
twenty-nine years, was at her home at
the mines. Mr. Hart was. of course,
overjoyod at hearing news from the son
whom he never expected to see and
knew not whether he was dead or
aiive. The most remarkable part of the
story is that Mr. Hart's former wife is
residing near Bradley. She has since
remarried, and her name is Pollard, and
she is surrounded by a happy family of
children. This is a truthful narrative
of romance in real life.
HACKMEN FIND A FRIEND.
A Farmer Worth $50,000 Be
queaths It AH to Found a Home
St. Louis Republic
Among the wills recently admitted to
record by Judge Myers, of the Hancock
county probate court, in Findlay, 0.,
was the testament of A. B. Arthur, an
eccentric farmer of Marion township,
who departed this life some time in
June, and left behind hira an estate
valued at about $50,000. Arthur had
never married, and his nearest of
kin living are a number of nephews and
nieces, who naturally expected that his
earthly accumulations would be divided
among them in an equitable manner by
their wealthy uncle when he made his
But after his death, when this impor
tant document was made public, none
were more astonished than the expec
tant heirs when it was found that the
old gentleman had devised and set aside
his entire possessions to be sold by his
executors, and the proceeds invested in
the building and maintenance ot a
"Home for Indigent HacKmen," the in
stitution to be erected on ground which
he designated in Marion township, re
mote from even a village, much less a
city. In fact, the spot selected for the
"Home" is seventeen miles from Find
lay, in an open field, surrounded on all
sides by large farms.
Here he directed that a building capa
able of accommodating atone time fifty
indigent hackmen should be erected
and furnished, and appointed his execu
tors as trustees to carry out his wishes
and to keep up the establishment at an
annual expense of $4,000, or until all bis
funds were exhausted, by which time
he indulged the hope other bequests
will be made by parties in sympathy
with his ideas to carry out the freak to
which he so freely donated ids wealth.
What adds to the queer ness of this
"last will and testament" is the fact
that there are not a half-dozen hackmen
in the county who are ever likely to
need such a "home;" and none in
the township in which Arthur
who had always been a farmer
lived and died. Besides all this, if
such a home was provided its proposed
location is so remote lrom the natural
haunts of hackmen that one would have
to be in pretty bad shape financially,
physically and mentally if he accepted
the hospitality Mr. Artliur so generously
provides for in his will. It is hardly
necessary to add that the relatives of
the dead friend of the hackmen have al
ready commenced proceedings in the
court of common pleas of this county to
have the will set aside, on the ground
that the old man was not in his right
mind when he executed the document,
and the case will come up for hearing
at the September term of the court in

a few minutes the future emperor and
one of our future presidents had
clinched and were slapping and pound

prince's suite and the frightened par

them and led them apart, neither com

"That boy slapped me first, when I
wasn't doing anything to him," per
sisted the young American, whose par
ents were almost expecting to be ar
rested orbeheaded for the unprecedented
treatment of such a sacred being as the
imperial crown prince.
"I have punished that boy for his im
politeness in wearing his hat in my
presence," said the pompous prince*
ling, frowning at his suite, tightening
his little sword belt and strutting up
and down like a young game cock.
The tableaux and exercises went on
quietly after that prelude, and when
supper time came Prince Haru was
seen eating pink and white ice cream
elbow to elbow with his late opponent,
and gallantly feeding his own sponge
cake and eclairs to the opponent's pretty
little yellow-haired sister.

What a "Jag" Is.
San Francisco Alta.
An inquirer asks us the meaning of
the word "jag," applied to inebriety.
It is a new slang. In the rural districts
the cargo of a wagon that is hauling
wood, when all that the wagon can
carry, is called a "load." When it is
less than up to the full capacity it is
called a "jag." Therefore, when a man
is less than dead drunk he has not a
load on, but merely a jag. We hope
our questioner will never get beyond a
jag. Gladstone used to drink a half
pint of port at dinner. He has recently
increased the. quantity to a pint and
says it does not affect him as much as
the half-pint did twenty years ago.
That shows thrt he's a sound old boy.
What would have been a load for him
at sixty is only a jag at eighty.

How does a woman love? Once, no more.
Though life forever its loss deplore;
Deep In sorrow or deep in sin,
One king reigneth her heart within.
One alone, by night and day,
Moves her spirit to curse or pray.
One voice only con call her soul
Back from the grasp of death's control;
Though lovers beset her, or friends deride.
Yea, when she smileth another man's bride,
Still for her master her life makes moan-
Once is forever, and once alone.
How does a man love ? Once for all.
.The sweetest voices of life may call.
Sorrow daunt him. or death dismay,
Joy's red roses bedeck his way;
Fortune smile, or jest or frown,
The cruel thumb of the world turn down;
Loss betray him, or love delight,
Through storm or sunshine, by day or night,
Wandering, toiling, asleep, awake.
Though roula may madden, or weak heart*
Better than wife, or child, or pelf, •
Once and iorever, he loves— himself.
