The resolution submitted to council
last night by Bishop Ireland and Mr.
Cochran, proposing to grant to the
street railway company the right to ex
periment in. the use of electric power on
the two lines mentioned in the resolu
tion, was doubtless offered by those
gentlemen in the utmost sincerity and
good faith. In addition to their high
standing as citizens of the community,
the fact that they had already offered a
large bonus to the street railway com
pany to build one or both of the pro
posed lines is the evidence of their sin
cerity and ot their earnest desire to have
the experiment made. Yet the resolu
tion merits the careful consideration of
council before being adopted. On its
face it appears to be a perfectly fair
proposition in response to Col. Baku's
recent appeal to the city authorities to
test the electric motor service before
adopting it so extensively as is proposed
by the pending ordinance. But by a
careful reading of the resolution it will
be discovered that it is not altogether
such an innocent document as it
appears to. be at the first blush.
If it proposed to give the street
railway company the right to t ex
periment with the electric motor only
.on streets where the tracks are already
laid, then a different phase would be
put on it. But by extending this right
to new lines the city council would
virtually commit itself to a policy en
tirely at variance with the policy out
lined in the ordinance relating to the
subject of electric motor lines now
pending before the council. In other
words, it would be a concession of all
that Mr. Lowry has asked and a recog
nition of his claim respecting the ex
clusiveness of his franchise. There is
no necessity for experimenting with
electric motors. All the experimenting
that is necessary, and that is possible to
be made here, has been done elsewhere.
If the electric motor has been a success
in other cities it will be a success here.
If it has been a failure elsewhere, it
will be a failure here. That is the long
and the short of it. The council ought to
possess sufficient intelligence to de
termine whether or not the numerous
experiments that have been made with
electric motors in a dozen or more cities
have been a success or not, without
wasting valuable time in experimental
projects. There is a pretty unanimous
opinion outside of the council chamber
that the electric motor is a success, and
that the ordinance which the council
has so long been dallying with contains
all the provisions that are. necessary to
put the electric motor lines into opera
tion in this city.
THE STATE FAIR.
It is, perhaps, well enough for us here
in St. Paul to wake up to the fact that
the time for holding the state tair is
near at hand, and that we have a duty
to perform iv the way of contributing
to its success. The management have
been working faithfully and success
fully in arranging for the exhibit, and
the prospects are that we are to have
this year the best fair of the whole se
ries. President Bushxell and Secre
tary Denny, with the aid of their corps
of capable assistants, have worked up
an interest among the farmers of the
state exceeding anything known In past
seasons. Tha whole state" has been
thoroughly canvassed, and, in addition
to securing a fine exhibit, they have
succeeded in establishing a bureau of
information in connection with the fair
that promises to be of great value.
The purpose is to bring • and
keep the institution within the
legitimate scope of an agricultural fair,
and thus the managers have succeeded
in enlisting the active sympathy and co
operation of all the farmers of the state,
who realize that the fair is to be a per
manent benefit to them. Theiewill be
an unusally fine display : ; of ; live stock
and farm products. Special attention
will be given to the dairy interests, to
domestic manufactures, to the poultry
display, and, in fact, to everything in
which a farmer or farmer's wife is in
the least interested. Nor will the es
thetic features of the exhibition be over
looked. The art gallery display is to be
unusually attractive, the merchants of
the Twin Cities are to be given ample
space for a display of their goods and
wares, and every department will be
under the superintendence of most ca
pable persons. The sporting and.amuse
ment features of the exhibition are to
be on a par with everything else. The
entries that have been made are a guar
antee of the finest racing, and the
various amusements that have been
billed are an assurance that there will
be no lack of entertainment.
The farmers of the Northwest are in
good heart just at this time, on account
of their splendid crops, and they are
in the humor to boom the state fair.
They are coming up to Ilamline in
great crowds, and we want to be ready
to give them the welcome and the en
tertainment they have a right to expect
of us. More than that, we want to dem
onstrate to them that we are equally in
terested with them in making this year's
fair a grand success, and can. best do
that by laying our hands to the work
and helping the. managers along. The
fair is a state institution, it is true, yet
the business men of St. Paul and Min
neapolis have, or ought to have, a pecul
iar local pride in it, and the success of
each year's exhibit largely depends
upon the "local support given to it. In
speaking thus to the business men of
the Twin Cities, we are not talking for
effect. We do not want you to be con
tent with giving a tacit indorsement to
all we are saying, and then forgetting
all about it until you are again remind
ed of your duty. Be up and go at it as if
you felt the weight of a heavy responsi
bility-resting upon your shoulders.
Display your faith by your works.
NEW STATE POLITICS.
Now that they are about through with
constitution making, the four new
states are taking a whirl at politics.
The political leaders are laying plans to
capture the offices that have been cre
ated by the new constitutions, and the
promise is for exciting times* in the
Northwest for the next few weeks.
Fortunately for the farmers, they, are
through with their harvesting, and, being
in a jubilant frame of mind over the
crop yield, can listen more patiently to
the voice of the offieeseeker than they
might otherwise have done. The indi
cations so far are that politics in the
new states will not differ materially
from what it is in the older mem
bers of the Union. The professional
politician holds the inside track, with
the prospect that the fanners, who con
stitute the bulk of the voting popula
tion, will have to be content with pick
ing up crumbs that fall from their
masters' tables. The different cliques
have already parceled out the offices
among themselves, and the nominating
conventions will only be a scramble ; .
among the various cliques for mastery
of the situation. So far the. various
si ates or combinations that have been
made by the Republicans in the new
states that are claimed as reliably Re
publican are largely constituted of the
i adventurous classes who went into the

territories for the purpose of making
office-seeking their business. While it ;
is v possible ; that ; the ? stable : element,
being so largely 'in .". the majority, may
assert its power and overthrow all these
combinations, and put state tickets in
the field composed exclusively of the
best representative citizens, still there
is not much probability that the control ,
of the nominating conventions can be
wrested from the professional . politi
cians. The chances for a real good
ticket are better in Montana than in the
other new states, because of the more
equal division of political power. Each
party there is put on its good behavior,
and the nomination of a strong state
ticket becomes a positive party neces
sity. It would be fortunate for the other,
new states if party strength could be
more evenly divided, for iv that event
the show, for a good start in statehood
would be much improved over the ex
"The clock of Mr. Wisdom's earthly
greatness has probably recorded the
mark of high twelve," is the grandilo
quent style in which the Duluth Trib
une disposes of Mr. ..Windom's senato
rial ambition. Fortunately for the Du
luth editor, he qualified his classic dis
posal of Wixdom by injecting the word
"probably" into the sentence. He
leaves himself room to hedge, so to
speak. It was thought that the clock of
Mr. Wisdom's earthly greatness* had
recorded high noon when he was last
defeated for the senate. So firmly was
this impression fixed in the minds of
Minnesota politicians that when Mr.
WiKDOM turned up in St. Paul at the
Republican state convention in 1886 as
delegate from Winona there were none
so poor as to do him reverence. No
more attention was paid to him than if
he had never been in public life. He
sat in his seat all day, looking as lone
some as the new boy at the district
school. And yet there are men who sat
on the platform that day looking away
over Mr. Window's head, and apparent
ly not noticing his presence, who are to
day making trips to Washington for the
sole purpose of currying favor with the
man who now dispenses federal patron
age in Minnesota. Circumstances alter
cases mightily. It is usually observed
that the man who holds the latch-key to
the postoffices, together with a well
filled purse, will in time become the
idol of his party.
Judge Field's California episode has
started the Washington society gossips
to talking about the strained relations
between Judge Field and Chief Justice
Fuller! It is said that Judge Field
had his heart set on the- chief justice
ship, and when he was passed by and
plain Lawyer Fuller, of Chicago, was
selected, he was so piqued by the dis
appointment he actually behaved rudely
toward President Cleveland, and lias
ever since made it a point to show his
contempt for the chief justice. It is an
open secret in Washington that Chief
Justice Fuller reciprocates the cool
ness on the part of Justice Field, and
takes no pains to conceal his dislike for
his venerable associate on the bench.
Judge Field has passed the age which
entitles him to retire on pay, and the
supposition is that the recent tragic oc
currence in California will hasten his
retirement from the bench, in which
event the already too large Republican
majority on the bench will be in
Id WANS ADMIT IT.
The Cedar- Rapids Gazette says that
the platform of the lowa Republicans
concedes that " protection has in some
cases fostered trusts and trade conspir
acies," and that it is about the only
lowa Republican paper that has de
nounced such protection. It alludes to
the usual party delivery on the subject,
like those in Pennsylvania and Ohio of
late, as " the old gags." It is gratifying
to note this evidence of advance in a
portion of the Republican forces, and
no imputations of inconsistency will be
introduced. But the Gazette excites
alarm for its party loyalty when it goes
on further to throw down the glove to
Mr. Blame, and assure him that even
if he does regard trusts as " largely pri
vate affairs, with which the public have
nothing to do or say," he will " find out
that the public do 'have something to
say about them." Great educators are
the trusts. _ .. , . .

A MODERN JAPHET.
Andrew McDonald in Search of a
v/; Father and Sister. ;-:--.!
New York, Aug. 20.— T0-day Andrew
McDonald, a well-tc-do citizen of Frank
fort, Pa., and the superintendendent of
the Friends' asylum for the insane at
that place, called at police headquar
ters. He wa* in search of his father, . a
sister and a brother. The story told by.
him was of a decidedly romantic nature,
in 1867 his father, Owen, his mother,
two sisters and two brothers came to
this city. Times were hard then with
the McDonald family, and on May 2 of
that year Andrew, who was six years
old, his brother Edward, nine, and his
sister Mary, still younger, were found
wandering on Mulberry street without
friends and a home. They were picked
up by the police and sent to Ran-!
dall's island. Eleven days after-,
wards Andrew and Edward were taken
by the Children's Aid society and put j
on a farm in Greenville, Park county, O.
There they remained until twenty-one
years of age. They had managed to
save a small sum of money during their
apprenticeship, and shortly afterwards
bought a farm, which is cared for by
Edward. A few "years ago Andrew
began a search for his " missing rela
tives, and discovered oue of his sis
ters, living in Baltimore, "married to
Chris lihein. From he, he learned
of tne death of his * mother, who - had
died of a broken heart because.of the
loss of her children, but that their*
father was still alive in New York, as
was their brother Patrick, who had mar
ried, but she could give no clue to the
locality of their residences. The sister
said that when their:. mother learned
that her boys had been taken away by
the Children's Aid society, she made
every effort to ' find -„ their where
abouts, but the officers of the
society declined to give any informa
tion. When Andrew asked his sister as
to the whereabouts of their sister Mary,
she said that the little one had been
taken from Randall's Island and had
been placed,, with the Catholic sisters.
In 1884, according to the narrator's
story, she sent a lady friend ot hers to
the Home of the Good Shepherd to
learn if any trace of the lost one could
be had. There she was told that Mary
was there, but could not b e'en,
as she was in retirement. To-day, when
Andrew called at ■ the institution, the
mother superior informed him that his ,
sister had left the institution in 1875;
This was in direct contradiction of the
story told to the lady who visited the
place in 1884. Mr. McDonald will con
tinue the search for his relatives.

;. New York, Aug. 20.— New York
attorneys for . Mrs. May brick received
this morning from an anonymt«n cor
respondent a letter explaining the use
of the expression, "I am sick unto

London, Aug. 21.— 1t was reported in
the house, of . commons yesterday that
the death sentence of Mrs.Maybrick was
certain to be commuted. '"' It is stated
that in an interview yesterday Alice
Yapp, the nurse, alleged that the pris
oner once sent a girl to a chemist .vilh a
prescription of her own writing, and
that the chemist refused to fill the pre
scription on account of the ; poisonous
nature of the ingredients, and then in
formed the police of the cir
cumstances. Michael Maybrick,
brother-in-law of Mrs. Maybrick,
convicted of poisoning her husband, in
an interview yesterday, said that noth
ing would please him better than to see
; the prisoner liberated by Home Secre
tary » Matthews. He denied that he
had placed the girl Yapp in his broth
er's house as a ' spy. He was on the
best of terms with the prisoner, and
did not think during the trial she
: would be convicted. He did not think
the prosecution desired conviction. So
confident was he of her acquittal that
he had packed up his clothes in readi
ness to catch the first train for London
after the trial.

The victims of. the recent disastrous
ftot>d on Tucker, Tygart, State, Little
Sandy and other creek valleys, are
many of them in sad need of help.
They are houseless and homeless, and
but for the charity of their once | poor
neighbors, the hill* farmers, the suffer
ing would be terrible^ As it is the drain
upon the resources of the farming com
munities which escaped the flood is too
great to be long withstood. The towns
and villages are doing all in their power
to relieve them, but their assistance is
entirely inadequate. While the de
privations and suffering is great at this
time, it will probably be greater within
a few weeks when the weather gets
colder. There are miles :of desolate
territory, with scarcely a house left
standing and r not a vestige ■ of crops.
The homeless women and children are
scattered among the hill farmers, while
the men are searching for work over
the desolate country. Taken altogether,
the outlook for these poor people during
the coming winter is.a gloomy one.

in the pasture, each horse killed being
one out of Mr. Taft's three double
teams. The dwellings of Herman Luh
man on Harriet street : A. McDonald,
Wilken street, and Prison Guard -Gold

somewhat damaged, especially Mr. Mc-
Donald's house. A barn owned by a man
named Hammond, a neighbor of Mc-
Donald, was also struck. :In no case
was a building fired by the electric cur
rent, nor was any person injured,
though at McDonald's the lightning
came near enough to the servant girl in
bed to give her a severe shock. In the
village of Houlton, | opposite the city,
the house of a Frenchman, whose name
is not known, was struck and the in
mates shocked. Early in ; the progress
of - the storm the line of the Stilhvater
Electric Light company was struck
and disabled, extinguishing every
street light in the city for the remain
der of the night. Some of the streets
were badly washed as a result of the

THEY DON'TASK MUCH
The Missouri River Commis
sion Submits Estimates for
About Two Million Dollars
Can Be Sunk in the Big
Congress Will Probably Scale
Down This Sum by Sev
Tanner's New Scheme to Make
Himself Solid With the
Washington, Aug. 'JO.— Lieut. Col.
Sutor and Majs. Mackenzie and Broad
head, corps of engineers, constituting
the Missouri river commission, have
submitted to the chief of engineers
their annual report upon the improve
ment of that river. The report, after
reciting how the appropriation of ?1,
--000,000 had been allotted, says that, as
most of the work was new, careful sur
veys and extensive repairs to plant
were first needed, which, together with
low water, delayed the beginning of the
work. Nevertheless, fair progress has
been made, and it will probably be
nearly, if uot entirely, completed
this season. The two surveying
parties had covered 300 miles
up to June 30, and hoped to cover the
entire distance of 1,520 miles this sea
son, thus completing the system of tri
angulation from Fort Benton to the
mouth of the river. Above Sioux City
the project contemplates a low water
depth of four and a half feet, and three
and a half feet has now been attained,
facilitating navigation between Fort
Benton aud Fort Carroll, 160 miles.
Operations will be confined to the river
between Fort Bentou and the coal
banks, and will be
COMPLETED THIS SEASON.
Below Fort Carroll permanent work
cannot be undertaken until the survey
is completed. After giving in detail the
work done and estimates of appropria
tions required at different points along
the river, the commission touch upon
the action of congress in the act of 1888,
practically rejecting its plan of improve
ment. It states that the primary ob
ject of the appropriations was undestood
to be a desire to benefit navigation, and
not to protect private or municipal
property from the ravages of the river,
although if the latter could be done in
cidentally, so much the better. Sys
tematic improvemet of navigation in
volves the holding of the river in a fixed
channel, aud thus, when completed,
protecting adjacent property. But this
improvement requires many millions of
money and many years of time. Prop
erty owners are not content to wait and
clamor for protection, and it is impossi
ble to meet all of their demands with
out scattering the funds so as to make
them everywhere inadequate. Then de
tached pieces of bank protection, sepa
rated by many miles, contribute little
or nothing to the general improvement
of navigation. The river can be con
trolled only by a continuous improve
ment, and funds spent in protecting cer
tain points cannot be considered as ap
plied to the benefit of navigation. An
indefinite number of millions of dollars
could be expended in that way without
appreciable benefit to navigation, and if
the improvement of navigation is the
IT CANNOT POSSIBLY SUCCEED
If carried on under the terms of the act
of Aug. 11, 1 88. In preparing the es
timates the commission has seperated
the two distinct interests. The esti
mates are: Salaries of commission, ex
penses, works, etc., $150,000: Sioux City,
$100,000; Omaha, $150,000; Plattsniouth,
$100,000; Nebraska City, 8150.000: Rulo,

the river, $1,000,000. Total. $2,700, 000.
The estimates contemplate the ex

Washixgton, Aug. 20.— When Capt.
Murreli, of the Missouri, with the res
cued passengers and crew of the steamer
Denmark on board, anchored at Phila
delphia, three men, who were employed
to look out for cattle on the Missouri,
went ashore with the members of the
crew. The immigration commissioners
at Philadelphia heard of this, and com
plained that the men should not have
been allowed to leave the ship, as they
were merely immigrants, and not enti
tled to the privileges of the crew in this
respect. Capt. Murreli explained that
they had signed as members of the
crew, although they were employed
only to attend the cattle. The collector
at Philadelphia wrote to the treasury
department about the case, and an an
swer has been sent from the secretary
stating that there is no law under which
persons engaged as members of a crew
of a foreign vessel can be kept from
landing, and that the only remedy to be
had in future cases is to take precau
tions to see whether persons coining
under this section of the law are in real
