There's not much pleasure in promenading
trhen tbe chilly winter winds are trying their
Utmost to chill you through and through.
Then's the time when the sensible man
congratulates himself upon the fact that he
jb dressed in the Boston's reliable garment.
It's next to impossible for the cold winds to
penetrate our heavy Overcoats; they are
made purposely to bland the cold winters of
Leather Jackets, as soft
and pliable as the finest
kid, lined with heavy flan
nel or corduroy; some are
reversible; black and buff
are the colors; the wind
never blows, neither is it
cold when you have one of
these Jackets on; wind
proof, cold-proof; $4.50, $5,
$6.50 and £8 are the prices.
Leather Jackets— Second Floor— Elevator.
Underwear claims your
attention — winter under
wear, we mean. It's an im
portant matter, is under
wear. It's a hard thing to
buy. Poor underwear is
worthless. Good underwear
is expensive. How to obtain
the most reliable underwear
lor the least money is the
question with you, isn't it?
We think we've solved it.
Come and see!
Underwear on First Floor.
From 615 to $30, that is
about the range of prices
for our Winter Suits. Of
course, we have Suits for
$10, and plenty of them,
too; but you'll find that the
better grades of Suits are
much the cheapest for you
to buy in the long run.
An extra long, extra warm
and extra stylish Ulster is
one of our latest novelties,
just received, for gentle
men. It's a grand good
garment for driving, or for
severe weather; price iss32.
You'll say it's cheap when
you see the Ulster. We
have Ulsters as low as $10,
as good as can be sold for
that money.

on Which the Delegates
Final Arrangements for the
Reception ani Entertain
ment To-Day.
HE intelligent, the
diplomacy and the
statesmanship of the
American continent
will be represented
in a distinguished
party that will Iw
the guests of the
capital city of Min
nesota this morning.
1 I I 2&rj!\-'h
The c guests will be
the delegates to ttie
Pan-American con
gress, to be assem-
bled at Washington
upon the completion
of the present tour ol the United Stales.
They represent tlte great governments
that compose the Three Americas, and
St. Paul will do thorn fitting honor
daring their brief stay in the capital.
For the past two weeks the delegates,
as the guests of the federal govern
ment, have been on a tour of inspection
of the United States, and have been
feted and toasted at every resting place.
Only the more important cities have
beeu visited, for tue purpose of
imparting to these distinguished vis
itors an adequate conception of the ex
tent, resources and general greatness
of the United States, and each city, as
its turn comes, has put on its most at
tractive aspect, and worn its holiday at
tire. St. l'aul will be second to none
in any desirable respect. The propo
sition to entertain the delegates was re
ceived with a hospitable enthusiasm
characteristic of the Northwest, Ad the
committees having the arrangements
have spared no pa us to make the recep
tion a complete success. There will be no
Salted entertainment to weary the trav
elers, but every effort will be to di
vert, edify ai.d amuse without fatig
uing the guests. The city will be very
generally decorated throughout the day.
Representing Foreign States,
Who Will Be With !is To-day.
No better idea can be formed of the
intelligence and high official standing
of the foreign delegates to the Pan
American congress than from a glance
at the brief sketches given below. It
will be made very evident that that
assembly was niado up of talented and
trained diplomats and scholarly men—
gentlemen all, whose stay among us
cannot fail to impress Americans gen
erally with the growing hnpoitaiue and
intelligence of our sister governments.
Many of these countries have sent to us
their most distinguished and most rep
resentative men. and it is these meu v
and through them the governments they
represent,, that St. Paul will do honor
to to-day.

All arrangements were completed last
evening for the entertainment to-day
of the Pan-American delegates. There
was a meeting in the afternoon of the
committee on arrangements, composed
of the members of, the city council,
chamber of commerce and jobbers'
union. The delegates will arrive at the
union depot this morning at 10 o'clock.
The carriages awaiting at the union,
depot will at once convey the city's
guests to the new Y. M. C. A. building,
near the High school, where appropriate
ceremonies will take place touching
the laying of the corner stone. Hon. C.

In the council chamber W. M. Bush
nell and Aid. Weber have prepared
handsome miniature exhibits or the
products of the state — cereals, miner
and Hax. .The flax exhibit is of a par
ticularly interesting description. There
is the product in its natural state and
in its various stages of man
ufacture to meet the needs
of a .'., fastidious public. There
may not be time for the visitors to -see
these exhibits at noon, and is piob.i
blea return, visit will have to be made
to the city ball during the afternoon.
The reason. for the limited time is that
at 1 o'clock there is a luncheon at. the
princely, residence of Gov. Merriam. and .
at 2 o'clock a drive taken .to unfold be
fore the eyes of the guests the growth,
the beauty and the substantial charac
ter of the city. The carriages will first '
proceed to St. Anthony hill, and the '
following -thoroughfares traversed: '•

The : heart of the city will
again be pierced, and, a view of the

The reception promises to be one of the
most fashionable events that has oc
curred in the city for many years, the
applications for tickets have severely
taxed the reception committee— Messrs.
William Bickel, Walters. Morton and
Archelaus Pugh. Up to last evening
BUO invitations had been issued. A great
effort has been made to forward an in
vitation to prominent business and pro
fessional citizens, and if any are left
out in the cold the reason is that the
committee were compelled to close
down, owing to the fact that the city
does not contain a hotel with aceommiK
dations sufficient to comfortably, take In
the. whole population. The; most
elaborate preparation has-been made :
for the reception, which * ; will'
be at the Ryan. On the floor above. the.

How the Delegates Passed a Day
in the City of Breweries.
Milwaukee, Oct. 23.— Tiie All-
America travelers left Chicago at 1 8
o'clock under the attentive care of Capt.
Burke, of the army. This was because
of the. fact that the special agent, Will
iam E. Curtis, remained behind under
advice of Dr. Yarrow, United States
army. Mr. Curtis is obliged to take
rest, anxiety for the success of the trip
and activity in attaining it having
caused nervousexhaustion. He expects,
however, to resume his duties to-mor
row. The run to this city was unevent
ful, save for the boarding of the train
at Western Union Junction by the Mil
waukee reception committee, bearing
tiny bottles of Milwaukee beer as souve
nirs, and handsome pamphlets illustra
ting Milwaukee. The St. Paul road, on
which the run is now being made, also
distributed elegant souvenirs. Upon
arrival at Milwaukee carriages carried
the party through the residence sections.
to the art gallery, water works, to the
breweries and to a hotel at 1 :30, where
lunch was had. Mayor T. H. Brown, at
the conclusion of- lunch, welcomed the
visitors, saying all citizens of the city
were true American citizens in the sense
of desiring ■ true union of all the Amer
icas, ile was followed by Johu J ohn
ston, who spoke of Milwaukee, "The
place of the beautiful bay or hollow."
lie gave history and statistics. He
i claimed for Milwaukcetliasecondpl^uiß
as a flour-making city, Minneapolis
being first. Only thirty-five policemen
were required to keep order in the day
time, among the city's 250,000 people.
Mexican Minister Romero, speaking for
the delegates, said those of tne East ex
pressed surprise at the wondrous growth
of the West, and made some compari
sens of industries and structures East
and West. Upon the close of Senor
Romero's brief remarks. Ed Molten,
once Prohibition candidate for governor
of Wisconsin, in a stirring talk of
three minutes, tendered, in his own
home, thanks to Senor Romero, who
years ago. in his, had extended
to the Americans. The tribute was
stirring and the applause very quick.
J. V. Qoarlea spoke of some American
peculiarities, which amused his hearers,
and in closing evoked clieers by saying
the hands of the United States
were extended to the visitors and
behind them were the heart beats of a
freo people. The God who has made
these people's neighbors had assuredly
decreed that they should be friends.
(Applause.) To that end the speaker
proposed a sentiment that was warmly
receiver!. After luncheon Dr. Silva,
delegate from Columbia, who had in
spected the great breweries with inter
est, remarked that at the meal he had
felt inclined to protest against the use
of wine— he suggested that beer, the
beverage of Milwaukee, should have
been used. The drive about the city
was resumed after the lunch, the chief
feature of interest being the National
Soldiers' Home, on the outskirts of the
city. The southern visitors saw with
some wonder the great numbers of
veterans, all in uniform, drawn
up in line along one of the beau
titul grounds. They were told
that the nation provided such
homes for indigent veterans of the war
ctf the Rebellion. "They are the chil
dren of your nation!" ejaculated one
Southerner. "Yes, the nation's wards,"
responded the local com niitteeman. The
care by the whole people of aged and
indigent soldiers deeply moved many of
the visitors. The engine works of Allis
& Co. were visited, and machinery,
boxed for shipment to several South
American nations, ctiallenged comment
from many. After a hotel dinner the
party in {.lie evening attended a recep
tion extended at his home by John L.«.
Mitchell. A new diversion was there
offered— a canvas tent of goodly size,
connected by a covered way with the
house, was pitclied on the lawn, and
there the visitors danced until late in
the evening, when they were driven to
their train, which started at midnight
for St. Paul.
*A Professor Says It's Only a
Rockf out), ill., Oct. 23.— Prof. E. L.
Curtis, of the McCormick Theological
eminary, startled the orthodox congre
gation of the Westminster Presbyterian
church here yesterday by declaring in a
sermon his belief ihat the book of Job
is only a poem written by some pious
Jew during the period of the exile. He
asserted that the book was only a para
ble, and that Job and the other persons
mentioned were but the creatures ot po
etical fancy. He gave as one of the
reasons for this belief that it was not
reasonable to suppose that any man
who had become so reduced by fasting
ing and bodily suffering could utter
such lofty poetical sentiments as are
ascribed to Job.

Lodging 1 House at
Quite a Blaze at Oshkosh—
Terrible Experience of
a Family.
Special to the Globe.
Winona, Oct 23.— A second most dis
astrous fire occurred on the lower levee
among the manufacturing establish
ments this morning, threatening to wipe
out the great flouring industry, jnst as
the other fire but a few weeks ago and
within a few rods of the same place,
threatened to annihilate the great lum
bering interests. Box 45, the same box
that gave warning of the Laird-Norton
fire, was pulled at 12:40 a. in. and was
followed by the greatest shrieking of
whistles and clanging of bells ever
heard in Winona. The flames lighted
the skies formiles around and thousands
of people rushed to the scene. The
tire was in the great flouring mill and
elevator of L. C. Porter milling com
pany. The whole department was soon
at work, but failed to make any im
pression on the flames, ane the great
buildings burned to the ground. The
night watchman at the Laird-Norton
yards noticed a stream of sparks Dour
ins from the Porter smokestack,, and a
few minutes later discovered the cupola
of the
and at once gave the alarm. The chim
ney that caused the Are has lung been
regarded with suspicion and fears of
what finally Kecurred. It discharged
quantities of sparks, and they have
more than once caused small blazes both
in this very cupola and in other places.
The sparks entered through the shut
ters of the cupola and fired the dust
within. The names seemed to pet a
start on the southeast corner of the ele
vator and then worked around the
northwest corner and down the north
side, the elevator going first and the
mill following. The mill burned very
slowly, caused doubtless by the
automatic tire sprinklers, with which it
was equipped. The mill and elevator
are a total loss with their contents, the
brick engine room, with engine and
boilers, escaping much injury. The

ering the loss. It is all
chiefly flouring mill mutuals. The Wi-

elevator was built and afterwards en
larged to a capacity of 90,000 bushels
storage and a handling capacity ot 5.000
baahela a day. improvements were
made in both mill and elevator until
1881, when tne mill was remodeled and
the capacity increased to 000 barrels a
day, This answoied until ISS7, when
the company made a radical change.
The old mill was entirely rebuilt
in all points and equipped with the very
latest improvements in machinery. A
large force of men was at work for three
months under the supervision of an ex
pert, and the new mill retained scarcely
a truce of the old one. Its capacity was
1,500 barrels a day. It was built in two
distinct sections and was so complete in
every detail that it was pronounced the
model flouring mill of the world. The
cost of these improvements was $75,000.
Fully half of the product goes to
the European market. The company
has an invested capital of over $000,000,
and does a business close to $1,000,000 a
year. F. C. Porter is president, C. N.
Porter, vice president, and Adelbert
Porter, manager. The big elevator of
the Winona Mill company. whi<:h stands
near the Porter mill, caught fire twice
from sparks from the Porter fire, and at
one time things looked very dubious.but
good work saved the elevator, with a
loss of about $500 from water on the

IMjluth:, Oct. 23.— Shortly after 4
o'clock this morning fire broke out in
the Pendleton building, a three-story
frame affair on the south corner of Su
perior street and First avenue west.
The building was occupied by saloons
and a boarding house. It was nearly
consumed. This morning the workmen
found the body of a man who had been
burned to death. He was taken to the
morgue, but not identified. It is be
lieved he went to bed drunk. The loss
on the building and contents is 110,000;
insurance, $0,300.
Destruction of an Oshkosh Fur*
niture Paint Shop.
Special to the ftlobe.
Oshkosh, Wis., Oct. 23.— Shortly be
fore 6 o'clock this evening fire broke
out in the paint shops and finishing
rooms of the furniture and coffin factory
of the Buckstaff-Edwards company.
Almost before the employes were aware
ot their danger the entire fourth floor
of the structure was in flames and they
were obliged to fly for their lives. The
tire spt-ad rapidly aud the entire upper
portion of the building was soon a seeth
ing mass of flame. The department re
sponded promptly, and although a high
southeast wind prevailed, succeeded in
confining the blaze to the structure in
which it originated. The loss is esti
mated at about $15,000, fully covered by
insurance. It is understood that one of
the girls employed in the paint room
was dipping a chair in a vat of light
varnish. When raising It above her
head it came in contact with the flame
of a gas jet. The girl dropped the chair
with a scream and fled. The flames
spread to a tank of highly inflammable
oil before they could be checked, and
the entire floor was soon burning. This
shop is a large four-story structure, and
is one of five lar^e buildings compri s
ing the plant. It is considered miracu
lous that the firemen kept the flames in
check ao well. Large sparks and burn
ing embers were carried by the wind to
distant parts of the city. About 100
hands are thrown out of employment.
The building will be rebuilt at once.

Narrow Escape of a Family From
Roast Ing.
Special to the Globe.
Fawbault, Oct. Sparks from a
threshing machine set fire to a straw
stack on the farm of Louis Dorn, who
lives a few miles from here, and before
it could be got under control the staole,
between thirty and forty t ons of bay,
two sets of harness and four valuable
horses were burned. Vincent Fait and
and family, consisting of wife and four
child en, were nearly roasted alive by
fire. They live a few miles from here
on an island surrounded by a marsh,
consisting of hundreds of acres. The
children were across the marsh herding
cattle, Vincent Fait seeing the fire,
thought he had better call his children,
lie started togo, but the fire was already
upon them, but he made his way through
the smoke and fire to their rescue, and
becoming blinded and suffocated, he lost
consciousness and fell into the fire. The
burning of his clothes on his back
aroused him, and with a last superhu
man effort he managed to get out. He
was found by some neighbors, who car
ried him home. When his boots were
removed the flesh clung to them. While
this was taking place his brother ar
rived upon the scene. He and Mrs.
Fait had to save the house, barn and
stock, and the children. It was a terror
to those who saw. it. The cattle were
badly burned, two of them losing their
hoofs entirely. There are hopes of Mr.
Fait's recovery, but the chances are
against him.

They Propose to Regulate Prices
of Their Products.
St. Louis, Oct. 23.— The wheat
growers of the Mississippi valley as
sembled in convention at Central Turn
er hall in this city to-day to organize
for future action. Walter N. Allen,
president of ; the Farmers'. Federation,
called the convention to order and
made quite a long speech. He
said it was ■ the first meet
ing of the kind ever held on
this continent, we are not here, he said,
for the purpose of denouncing trusts
and combines, but to meet the issue of
new systems and conditions in trade.
Realizing our individual feebleness and
the great importance of unity of action
as a class, we have been called together
to consider the proposition to delegate
to a power of our own creation the ex
clusive right to market the product of
our farms and to take such measures as
will afford present relief and future pro
tection to the agricultural interests
of the Mississippi valley. The
farmer is the only producer . who sends
an over-supply of his wares to market
« l 1(rt)(e^n r (Ttvsonw'mnretse"arTra. like the
goods- of-t-he--lMi»lcr44pt, at some one
else* prices; and when he. dares com
plain of the sacrifice, the answer of the
master is "over-production." Over pro
duction cannot, in justice, be wealth for
the nation and simply for the producer.
Ii farmers would organize., like manu
facturers, to control production and
regulate the output in the public
market, they could, in common
with all producers, set the price
on their own products irres
pective of overproduction or the power
of the Liverpool markets. The un
avoidable tendency of the present es
tablished trade system is to bring the
price down to the lowest limit at which
a food supply can be produced under
the most favorable conditions of soil,
season and climate. Now, In order to
avert impending ruin, we must reverse
this order by substituting a new sys
tem, fixing the price of farm products at
the cost of production on lands that
produce only thirty-fold. This will
restore the natural law of ex
change with equal and exact justice
to all. In other words, the difference
between the present trade structure and
the system proposed is, the one tends to
the minimum price that a food supply
can be obtained without checking pro
duction, while the other seeks the maxi
mum that a food supply can be sola at
without diminishing consumption. The
Cower to establish the value of one
bushel of American wheat and one bar
rel ot mess pork can control the mar
kets of the world. This power Is to be
found in the centralized agency
of the federated farmers of the
Mississippi valley, a company
legally chartered, with a capital stock of
$20,000,000, and, as your servant, this
company awaits your bidding to enter
upon its work of redemption. Ex-Gov.
Charles Robinson, of Kansas, was made
temporary chairman, and he addressed
the convention, strongly urging unity of
action and organization of the farmers
throughout the grain growing state.
Hon. Norman J.Coleman. ex-secretary of
agriculture, was made permanent chair
man; Walter N. Allen, of Kansas, vice
president; E. Wilson, of Minnesota,
secretary, and J. P. Limeburner, of
Kansas, assistant secretary. Robert
Lindblooin, of Chicago, spoke briefly to
the delegates, stating that he sympa
thized with them in their cause, which
he thought was a good one. A commit'
tee on resolutions was appointed, to
which all resolut'ons are to be referred
without debate, and the convention then
adjourned until to-morrow morning.
To Lease the Cherokee Strip.
Kansas City, Oct. 23.— Chief Mayes,
of the Cherokee nation, Indian Terri
tory, was in the city to-day and left this
evening for his home. The Cherokee
council, he says, will meet on Saturday
to discuss the government's offer of pur
chase of the Indian lands. The chief
would make no prediction as to the re
sult of the council's meeting. At the
same time he will present to the coun
cil a new offer recently made to Him for
a lease of the Cherokee strip. The
offer is made by William Blair & Co.,
of Independence; Mo., to pay $400,000
per annum for grazing privileges of the
strip for five years after 1893 and $720,
--000 for the succeeding five years.
Destitution Among Miners.
SAn Francisco, Oct. 23.— The steam
er St. Paul, which arrived from Ona

Yukon miners. They report some desti
tution among miners along the Yukon,
but say that the recent reports of starv
ation there were exaggerated. , No news
has been received from the party that
went . overland from Juneau to the
Yukon, and it is unlikely that anything
definite will be learned from them until
next spring. . ■

Helena, Mont., Oct. 23.— Got. White
is in receipt of an official report from
Washington of the recent Indian ' ttro- t

the Indians' side of the murder of one
of their tribe last summer. From ail re
ports the trouble is not yet over. The
farmers residing: in the vicinity of the
reservation have prepared petitions to'
the government for protection. They
claim that a band of Indians frequently .
get drunk and roam restlessly around, :
threatening to avenge the loss of their
murdered brother. Investigation into
the case shows that the Indians obtain
their liquor from some of the white peo*.

become somewhat numerous of late.and
the government has recommended that ■
two companies of soldiers be stationed

political sage of Houston county, stirred :
up a hornet's nest' in La Crosse/ by ; '
stringing a fence around tho public
park, which he claims to be tho owner

dedicated to public use. He had night
men at work, and the enclosure was
nearly complete when the mayor, chief
of police, city attorney and half a dozen
aldermen that had been gotten out of
bed appeared and caused the arrest of
the whole party. The land has ,been
considered as public property since the
city was platted, and about twenty years
ago was improved as a park and en
closed, but the -jity had not obtained
title by adverse possession, and dedica

A Decision Which {tenders V wing

DE3 Moines, 10., Oct. 23.— th©
cases of J. N. Craig, appellant, vs.
Werthuller & Endy, et al., and of J. M.
Craig, appellant, vs. Berth<ild Rosch et
al., a decision has been handed down
by the supreme court, prepared . by
Judge (liven, in which several old feat
ures and some new ones of the prohib
itory law are passed upon. Among the
questions is the right of the state by
legislative enactment to confiscate per
sonal property of a defendant without
process of law, it being claimed that
statutes authorizing such seizure are in
conflict with the constitution of the
United States and of lowa. The opin
ion holds that in a criminal action for
nuisance against the man, the place
kept by him is on trial also, and, there
fore, there is due process of law. This
is » matter that has been much dis
cussed, and involves a grave question of
the extent of the powers of the state
legislature. The property rendered
valueless by this order of the court ex
ceeds $400,000 in value, and consists of
breweries in the city of Burlington.
The case will probably be taken to til©
United States supreme court. A •.;->-
