A WAY TO DISCIPLINE.
The effusive method adopted by some
of the students of Harvard college in
celebrating their victory over the ath
letes of Yale will probably lead
to at least temporary interdiction
of these contests of physical prowess
between the colleges of the East. It
has not been uncommon for enthusi
astic people to do metaphorical paint
ing of towns, but in this Massachusetts
city classical decorum was shocked by
the literal character of the exercise.
The crimson daub was diffused over
statuary, mosaics, works of art and
buildings to a damage of $8,000 or $10,
--000, and a moral damage not to be esti
mated. The perpetrators will probably
be ferreted out, and if they do not ex
haust the penalties of civil as well as
collegiate authority, the full force
of the lesson will not be had.
It is not quite certain that it
would be desirable to have discourage
ment given the athletic features of
higher training, but this competing by
select and severely trained teams of rival
institutions is very much of the base
ball and professional order. It has de
veloping points; but whether they all
educate in exactly the right direction is
a matter likely to be more of a contro
versy now than ever. An incident re
lated of a Yale boat crew the other day
is used in support of the theory that
these exercises aid the discipline and
give a mental poise not often otherwise
obtained. In a race between the col
lege crew and a famous outside club
the captain of the classical boatmen
broke his oar, and the contest was so
even that his followers could not win
with him as a deadhead. So he at once
plunged overboard, and his crew no
ticed him as little as they would a
dog, but pulled ahead and gathered
the crown of victory. Whether he
did the McGinty act, or was able to
swim ashore, was not to De considered
when the honor of the institution was
involved in the contest. The illus
tration would be more impressive if the
captain had been unable to swim and
had gone into the depths jubilant with
the sight of triumph coming to his crew,
just as the patriots read about in books
are in a fever of passion to die for their
country. But it is a lesson worth learn
ing and a hard one to acquire, to be
ready to quietly, jump overboard when
in the way, when usefulness is ex
hausted aud the success of important
enterprises is threatened. There is
powerful mental concentration in the
other rowers that enables them to go
ahead with or without their director.
Still, it may not be necessary to waste
time in college to become an athlete
or gymnast that could ever travel with
STANDS BY FRIENDS.
There are some exceptions to all rules
that relate to human conduct. If there
are those that have no exceptions they
msosr must be credited with remember
ing his personal friends. It is true it
may be inexpensive to adjust those
little private debits with lucrative
"public trusts," but it still shows the
grateful memory. It has been intimated
that the meeting of the executive ele
ment of the Republican national com
mittee the past few days was at the in
stance of Harrison in order to force
Quay out. This proves to be partisan
misapprehension of the presidential
character. One of the papers with
which Russell Harrison is con
nected, and which is believed to reflect
White house thoughts, says:
Senator Quay never stood so well at the
White house as he does now, and the attacks
upon him have awakened the sympathy of
the president because he recognizes that they
have been made for partisan reasons. The
■senator calls at the White house ; frequently,'
and can always get the ear of the president
when other persons are refused interviews.
There is no reason to discredit that
view. The effort to make a gap be
tween Harrison and the Pennsylvania
boss is doomed to ignominious failure. •
No doubt the president approves the
high-toned muteness of the great ac
cused. An attempt to explain might
be embarrassing as indicating the early
biographical information of the presi
dent. He has shown his unwavering
attachment to Quay. His staunch
friend and campaign greaser, W ana
maker, was in the first batch made up.
The patronage of Pennsylvania is at
his service to save the overthrow that
threatens him in his party at his home.
Abundant instances can be recalled
where the president has only regarded
personal service in his selections. He
has usually remembered his friends.
Quay will continue to dictate to the
president and party.
THE NEW COUNCIL.
The new council, which rode into of
fice on the crest of the tidal wave of
May 0, was formally inducted into of
fice iast night, and formed,' on the
whole, the most intelligent body which
has for years legislated for the city of
St. Paul. Most of the new aldermen
entered upon their first term, but they
are all practical business men, and will
bring an abundance of common sense
to unite with the aldermanic experience
of the older members. From such a
council the Globe has no hesitancy in
predicting wise and conservative meas
ures and in feeliug that to its hands
may safely be committed the vast and
diverse interests of this great city.
In the election, as president, of 0. O.
Cullen, the council gave recognition
to his long term of service and to the
confidence in which he is plainly held
by the public, as evidenced in his re
peated large majorities in both ward
and general contests. The importance
of the office rests largely in the fact
that,iu the absence or resignation of the
mayor, he exercises the functions of that
officer. Council had due regard for that
emergency wheu Mr. Cullen was
chosen, and if occasion requires he will
vindicate that choice. His new com
mittees seem well constituted, and he
had an abundance of good material
from which to select. Aid. Joseph
Minea, the new vice president, is also
an entirely satisfactory selection, which
will be ratified by the public.
Mayor Smith read his biennial mes
sage, a full abstract of which appears
in the news columns. It is a carefully
considered digest of city affairs, and his
recommendations carry their owu
weight. The important feature is in
the financial recommendations, on
which he and Comptroller Roche differ
very materially. The mayor advocates
the levying of an annual tax of one mill
on the dollar to create a sinking fund
to pay the outstanding indebtedness;
while the comptroller, taking his usual
optimistic view, thinks the city is doing
quite well, and favors the redemption
of bonds at maturity. The council, in
its wisdom, will doubtless act advisedly
in the matter. The mayor's recom
mendations of economy in every depart
ment of the city government for the
next two years will appeal with full
force to every taxpayer, and, the coun
cil should, as it will, second the execu
tive in this regard, and earn the grati
tude of its constituency.
Maine has a pleasant little village
named Bar Harbor, where Mr. Blame.
Speaker Reed, and other magnates of
that state resort iv the summer. It had
G24 population in the last census, but
has grown so that its postal business is
now not far from 814 a day. Yet Speaker
Reed had the house the other day vote
$75,000 for a government building there.
At that rate there should be a dozen
millions or more appropriated for the
building St. Paul isn't getting astonish
ingly fast. , _
Gov. Hill is credited With the theory
that the Democrats will secure control
of the New York legislature this year,
and the successor to Mr. Evarts will
not be Mr. Platt. The Republicans
apprehend that in this event .there will
be an unpleasant controversy as to
whether Cleveland or Hill shall be
the. man. They should not be dis
quieted just yet, as the governor may
be looking at a rainbow.

THE SAINT" PAUL DAILY GLOBE: WEDNESDAY MORNING. JUNE 4, 1890.
The Chief of Which.
Duluth World. V
In an' interview' Mr. Donnelly is
quoted as saying that he made a speech
at an _ interior station the other -, day
. strongly opposing a ' Farmers' Alliance
convention to nominate a candidate
against his friend Gov. Merriam. The
governor already has his trumpeters In
the field, the chief of which is the Sage
of Nininger. ~
Will They Swallow.
Gov. Merriam has been sending out a
stereotyped "feeler" to the committees
in the different counties soliciting their;
support for a renomination. Will ■' they
swallow* the J "sugar-coated" William?
Most assuredly they will.
Merriaiu's Band Wagon.
Isanti Press. Q£B_PgMßßo-3H-P*»l
At the present time it looks as though
Merriam was pretty sure of a renom
ination. ; Although there are some sec
tions of the state which would 'favor
some other candidate if the opportunity,
was offered, they will : probably have to
get in Merriam's band wagon or be lone
some. Which of the two they will
choose remains to be seen.
Made a Splendid Run.
Lieut. Gov. Gilman thinks A. Bier
man, of Rochester, would be a strong
Democratic candidate for governor. He
made a splendid run once, and came
near passing under the wire a winner.
If W. R. Merriam is renominated for
governor, as he undoubtedly will be,
there will probably be more dissatisfac
tion among many of the prominent men,
and also the rank and file, of the Re
publican party than there was two years
Turned His Back.
Marshall Leader. ■ . - . . «f@|_|
We must give Mr. Comstock credit for
possessing the very small amount of in
telligence necessary for one to perceive
that his constituents almost to a man
were opposed to the measure. Mr. Com
stock deliberately turned his back upon
the demands of his constituents, and
went upon record as holding party " dis
cipline above his people's interests. The
Republicans of this district will not
tolerate such Republicanism.
Can Now Locate Them.
Mankato Free Press.
Whether was so intended or not, the
impression that has .gotten abroad that
Gov. Merriam favored au early conven
tion has had the effect of inducing his
opponents to uncover, and he can, now
locate them quite accurately. It would be
foolish to say. as the Pioneer Press did
a few weeks ago, that no opponent to
the governor can be found. '
Betrayal of the People.
What ignoble and ignominious speci
mens of party obsequiousness the so
called representatives of Minnesota in
congress presented when they cast
their votes : for the McKinley bill. A
more pitiable and contemptible specta
cle of fawing partisan servility has
never been witnessed than when those
five congressmen, pretending to be free
and independent citizens, voted at the
behest of their party master for a meas
ure they knew would rob the people,
whom they were .bound to defend, of
thousands of hard-earned dollars. The
perfidy, the baseness of this betrayal of
the people's rights and interests cannot
but call down their wrath on the trait
Will Reap as They Sow.
Kansas City Times. _BPI
The too-jubilant Republicans who
hilariously use their majority to strangle
argument and cut off delay, cry out un
blushingly that what they said in the
minority a few years ago "has nothing
to no with the case." This is true
enough. One can't bind a knave to his
verbal arguments. But the majority is
sowing evil seed. It is preparing the
way and the precedent for an unscru
pulous and inflexible majority dictation
in congress, to the utter disregard of
minority protest and minority right.
Before ten months the rulings and the .

Metaphysics Knocked Out.
Detroit Free Press.
Politics makes one acquainted, not
only with strange bedfellows, but with
strange association of circumstances
aud ideas. Our good old teachers in
structing as in metaphysics used to say
that no one could imagine himself* two
people. Mr. McKinley seems to have
two distinct personalities. He is at:
once the spider which is industriously
weaving the web, and the fly which is
being hopelessly enmeshed therein.
A Weak Hand at the Helm.
McKinley proves a bad pilot for a
shaky craft in turbulent and rocky
waters. . What else could be expected of
a measure so shamelessly railroaded
through congress? .It does not reflect
the sentiments of the Republicans
themselves, for they would break in the
middle over it but for the tyranny of
Power of the Lash.
The tyranny of party is very rigid in
the Republican organization. No matter
what a man's convictions may be upon
any question, if they conflict with the
party's object or purpose they must be
suppressed or overridden at any cost.
The party is above all things with them,
and the man who believes and knows
that the tin-plate duty is a gross wrong
dare not vote as he thinks when the
party magnates otherwise decree. This
lias been illustrated in the house. Ina
few weeks it will be demonstrated in
the senate. y^ - _ - '

tendance upon the interstate com
petitive drill '■ '. if ,: the battle had been
"genuine" instead of a "sham" one.
The sham battle was the feature of the
day and occurred at sundown. It was
a fair representation, on a small scale,
of the battle of Fort Metz, fought dur
ing the Franco-Prussian war. Eight
zouave companies, J representing the
French army, commanded by Lieut.
Col. Hogle, of . Denver, Col., assisted
by four companies of artillery, held the
fort against the charges of fourteen
compauies of infantry, representing the
Prussians, under command of Lieut.
Col. George R. Howard, of Kansas. The
fourth charge was the , successful one.
The competitive drill commenced to
day, and will continue, throughout the

The Panama Canal Commission
Begins to Count Them.
j Paris, Jue The special Panama
canal commission has prepared a fresh
report on the prospective earnings of
the canal in case it is completed. In
this the annual* cost of maintenance is
placed at 5,500,000 francs. The expenses
of administration are placed at 1,800,000
francs annually, and the cost of transit
is estimated at 10,000,000 francs annual
ly. The income for the first four years
is estimated at 51,250,000 francs.
This is calculated on an aver
age annual tonnage for that period
of 4,100,00 tons, and the proposed rate
of charge per ton is 12K francs. The
commission estimates that after the first
four years there would an annual in
crease in the tonnage of 250,000 tons
until a maximum tonnage of 6,000,000
should be reached. Afterthe canal has
been in operation twelve ; years the an
nual net receipts, all expenses being de

English Publicans Support the
Tories' Insane Scheme.
: London, June The agitation
; aroused by the government's proposal
to compensate keepers of public houses
for loss of ; licenses through the con
templated* reduction of the num
ber granted has hitherto been con
fined to the temperance ele
ment . and others opposed to
the measure for varions reasons, giving
the impression that the bill had few if
any friends outside of the ministry and
its . immediate followers. This belief
was strengthened by the elaborate
preparations which have been making
for some time for the great protest
meeting which is to be held
Hyde park next Saturday, when
scores of commoners and other
prominent . men are ' announced
to speak in denunciation of the pro
posal. To-day, however, three immense
meetings of publicans and their parti
sans were held in Loudon, without any
of the heralding of which next Satur
day's opposing movement has had the
benefit. The speakers at these meetings
earnestly supported the govern
ment's scheme and roundly de
nounced Mr. Gladstone for his
opposition, reminding him of the
downfall of his oWn ministry through
an attempt to impose a burdensome and
uncalled-for tax on beer.' The greatest
enthusiasm prevailed at both meetings,
and abundant evidence was shown that
the publicans control sufficient electors
to render the return of many members
of parliament who may vote against the
bill extremely uncertain if not abso
lutely impossible at the next general

Viscount Boyle and His Brother
London, June The missing Vis
count Boyle, who .is anxiously awaited
by his family to assume the title and
estate of . his father, the late Earl of
Shannon, is still successful in conceal
ing his whereabout, if indeed he is
alive, and it is now feared that another
member of the family has followed him
into obscurity. At the beginning of the
search for Lord Boyle one of his broth
ers "went to Australia, where :it was
thought the missing heir might be
found. For awhile he communicated
■ with his friends at home, but of late
nothing has been heard from him, nor
can - an ything be learned of ; his move

earl, foul play is suspected as the
cause of the brother's disappearance.

SHOT BY A KUFFIAN.
A Bloody Affray Which Narrowly
' 'Escape^ Murder. JJ.V
One of the most desperate eases : of
robbery and attempted murder on the
police records of the city was that which
occurred last evening in the Dawson
block - : at .the coiner •of St. ;. Peter
and Fourth streets, - and : in con
nection with - which William * Van
Allen, of ■ Omaha, . nearly lost Ills fife.
The man who did J the shooting is none
other than the notorious Frank Scheffer,
• whosS escapades have given him the
reputation of being the most notorious
and thoroughly desperate black
guard within the city limits.
Van Allen, the victim of
Scheffer's latest and most vicious out
break is a news agent, visiting in St.
Paul from Omaha aud rooming in the
Dawson block, where the affray took
place. Messrs. Tyson & White, the
firm of news dealers doing business at
the corner of f Kobert , and Seventh
streets were Van Allen's hosts In St.
Paul, they having invited him here to
spend a week. Late last night Van
Allen had been in Donnelly's saloon on
Wabasha street, where he had an ac
quaintance named Fred Ebert, employed
in the saloon as bartender. Shortly
after 12 o'clock Van Allen said he would
go to bed, and haviug wished his friend
cood night proceeded to his room in the
Dawson block. J Scheffer had been
there before him and had just
rifled the room of another roomer in the
block named Charles Forrester. Schef
fer was just descending the stairs
with his booty in one hand
and a 32-caliber revolver in the
other, when Van Allen began the
ascent. The latter, in the dim: light,
took Scheffer for one of the roomers and
would probably not have molested him.
Scheffer, however, thought Van Allen
to be an officer and at once opened fire
on him. The first shot struck Van Allen
above the knee on his right leg, and
sent him to earth, He is a man of great
personal courage, however, aud deter
mined to make a fight. In trying
to grapple with Scheffer he
cave the ruffian a chance to fire another
shot, which struck him in the groin.
The progress of the bullet was arrested
by a bunch • of keys and a
pocket knife, wliich saved Van
Allen's life beyond a . doubt.
Three shots were fired by Scheffer, but
only two took effect. The reports were
heard at the central station, and Detec
tive John O'Connor and Lieut. Phil
Sweitzer ran to the scene, and after
a sharp fight . placed Scheffer unde
arrest. Despite his desperately wound
ed condition Vau Allen had made a good
fight. Scheffer's head was cut deeply in
two places, and his clothes were lit
erally saturated with blood. The
wounded man was taken '-;■ to
the central police station and Dr. Coggs
well was summoned to. dress his
wounds, It is believed that neither of
them could, except by the ensuance of
unlookt d-for complications, prove fatal.
After all possible care had been takeu
of him at the station Van Allen was re
moved in the patrol wagon, to . St. Jo
seph's hospital, where at last accounts
he was resting easily. A Globe repre
sentative interviewed Scheffer, who ap
peared to be under the influence of
liquor. "I wish the had killed me,"
were the first words he uttered as the
surgeon examined the wounds in his
head from which the blood was flowing.
To all queries as to his object in shoot
ing Van Allen he would but reply that
he wished the latter had been a good
shot and had killed him outright.
Scheffer is a finely buiit young fellow,
. not more than twenty-five years old,
and with a face which would hardly be
speak him so hardened a ruffian as he
undoubtedly is. It is not more
than four months ago that he made a
record for himself when shot by Officer
Davis in an alley, by walking in his
wounded condition to the hospital with
out assistance. He has been arrested
innumerable times for highway robbery
and other offenses.
A STAIN ERADICATED.
The Police Close Up a Shameful
The most elaborately arranged and
secluded place of improper resort in the
Twin Cities was raided last night by
Officers Pettigrew, Sexton and Davis,
and the occupants conveyed to police
headquarters in the patrol wagon. The
woman in charge , of the house,
which is located on Pearl street,
between Temperance and Canada, gave
her name at the station as Ada Palmer.
The house has been known to the most
cultivated male debauchees of St. Paul.
Minneapolis and the surrounding towns
for some time past as Mrs. King's place,
and many a foolish girl has reason to
regret having entered the doorway of
this notorious haunt, which bore the
outward semblance of respectability,
and was a blot on the fair fame of
a respectable neighborhood. The house
in which the infamous business has
been conducted is the property of Mme.
King, who several weeks ago was warned
. to leave the locality, and agreed to rent
the place and move away. The agree
ment she failed to keep, and
the raid _of last night was the
result. The names given by the girls
and men found in the house are Annie
Allen, Nellie Jones, George Griffen,
Honry Ballard and Charles Ames. All
the names are ficticious, the men being
well-known residents of the city,
and the girls, so handsome and
innocent in appearance, as to
i preclude the possibility of their having
been . long engaged in the . nefarious
business in which they were caught.
The house on Pearl street has for a
long time been a source of trouble tothe
police department, complaints from res
idents on the street having been fre
quent. On Mouday night the house .was
unusually disorderly, and fresh com
plaints against the occupants were
received at police headquarters.
Mrs. King was released on 8100
bail, and the other girls and their male
companions put up $25 each for the
privilege of spending the night outside
the central station. The case will be
heard in the municipal court this morn
ing. -. ' _

We wish to call your
attention to the f act that
Sealskin .will be much
higher next season than
last, owing to the fact
that the new company
which has taken the
lease from the United
States government pays
nearly $8 more per skin
than did the old, and
must necessarily get
more for them: then the
catch allowed is reduced
from 100,000 to 60,000.
These (as you can read
ily see) are good reasons
for a strong advance.
If you will order your
garment of us NOW (or
before Aug. Ist) we will
take order at last year's
prices, and alio you (if
desired) to pay monthly
until paid for. You will
gain in quality, save in
price, and the monthly
payments may also bo
an advantage. We offer
NOW a lot of 100 Short
garments, 25, 28, 30 and
32 inches long, at an
average price of $25 less
than last season and $40
less than price next
October. These goods
are strictly first-class in
quality and make, and
we will warrant every
one. They came into our
hands— at less than the
price of seal in them—
through the necessities of
New York houses who
had to have money. They
are great bargains, and,
once gone, can't be dupli
cated. Send your size
and length wanted and
we will select, and on
payment of $10 to $25
hold until fall, allowing
you to pay balance as
you please and making
any change needed to in
sure fit free of charge.
These we offer at :
$105 for 25-inch,
Price 1889 was $135,
$125 for 28-inch,
Price 1889 was $150,
$135 for 30-inch,
Price 1889 was $160.
We have never offered
such a bargain in furs.
Don't fail to attend to
Now and avoid delays
later. Yours respect"'
