WHAT IS IT ?
The influence called hypnotism is so
little understood that it may be given
almost any breadth or province without
much popular challenge. One of the
female seminaries in Massachusetts the
other day afforded quite a little sensa
tion by the mysterious illness of a
couple of young ladies, attributed to
hypnotism. The facts as reported do
not suggest any of the methods associ
ated with the potency covered by that
term. But there is novelty in the
regimen imposed upon the sufferers.
They were required to lie Mat on their
backs and relax all the muscles both of
the body and mind, if that is a proper
reference to the mind. They were to
put the mind in the most inert state
possible. Then, after a period of the
utmost inertness of body and mind, the
latter was to be concentrated on some
object tor a time and specific muscles
were to be moved while the body
remained inert. Why this sort of
exercise should result in illness unless
there was an overtax of the powers does
not appear. It is an ordeal so little un
derstood in its mission that it is not
well to define its character, but it does
not appear that there was any attempt
to put the mind at the dictation of an
other, as hypnotism is understood. It
would be interesting to know if there is
a new physical or mental science, or a
combination, being introduced into fe
male seminaries that has the processes
indicated in the Massachusetts case. If
so, is it calculated to develop any sort
of physical hilarity or mental potency,
or does it lead to a new realm of in
quiry? Is it abnormal in results, or
what is its precise purport?
NOT THE BEST SORT.
The cheap labor fellows that the cen
sus men could find no way of enumerat
ing in the mining regions of Pennsyl
vania, except by numbers, are the re
sults of the greedof capitalists. Decent
American citizens cannot live on the
wages paid these scrubs and debris of
old world civilization. They are the
most degraded classes of Poles, Hun
garians and Italians, and are shipped
over like cattle to work in the mines
and live like brutes. If the immigra
tion laws were properly enforced, they
would be sent back to their native bogs
and hovels. If there is any class of
aliens to be excluded, these should be
among them. They are more depraved
than the Cninese, and have nothing in
them to develop into useful citizenship.
Their employers class them below the
animals, as the flatter are given names
and these but numbers. They add
to the production of the country, but so
do the Chinese. The objection to the
latter is that they do not assimilate
with the social life of the country and
become a part of it. They have no ap
preciation ot the dignity of citizenship
in a republic, ami degrade labor by
working iit starvation prices. All im
migrants that are self-sustaining and
fall into the channels of American life
are welcome, but not the human cattle
bought by monopolies to crowd out
honest, intelligent labor. There ' has
been a marked increase of these East
ern Europe elements the past few years.
Since ISBO the increase of immigration
from Hungary has been 20:2 per cent;
from Austria-Hungary, 22G per cent;
from Russia and Poland, 445 per cent;
from Italy, 149 per cent; the Neth
erlands, 91; while from Scandinavia it
has been but 23 per cent, and greatly
less from Germany and Great Britain,
the latter but 5 per cent. It is not sur
prising that there is a growing demand
for discriminative measures.
The most important move that has
been made on the political chess board
in Minnesota for a great many years was
the action taken by the executive com
mittee of the Farmers' alliance yester
day. While the call for a state conven
tion to be held in this city the lGth of
next month does not require the uomi
nation of a state ticket, there is scarcely
the shadow of a doubt that a full ticket
will be nominated, and that a vigorous
campaign will be inaugurated. The
action of the Fifth district alliance at
Fergus Falls the other day was the pre
cursor of what is to follow in state poli
tics. Whatever doubt remained of the
intention of the farmers to measure
their strength with the politicians this
year was dispelled by the firm and de
cisive tone of the alliance leaders who
assembled at the Clarendon yesterday.
Even Mr. Donxelly, who has opposed
the independent movement with vigor
and ability, was compelled to bow to
the inevitable, and confesses that the
independent movement is too strong to
be further resisted. With characteristic
gracefulness he fell into the procession,
and will continue to work in harness
with the farmers.
The step taken yesterday means a
good deal more than the politicians are
willing to admit. It is the foreshadow
ing of a mighty revolution in Minnesota
politics. The alliance has grown to be
a numerous body, and the votes of its
members cast solidly in any direction
will cut an important figure in state
politics. It is pretty well understood
that an agreement will be reached by
which the united labor vote will help to
swell the independent movement.
There is likewise a probability that the
15,000 Prohibitionists will be added to
the column ; so that altogether the in
dependents will present a very formida
ble organization, and will naturally
produce more or less dismay among the
machine politicians. Indluding the
alliance membership, the Knights of
Labor and the Prohibitionists, leaders
of the independent movement estimate
that they will start off with nearly 100,
--000 voters in line; and as the total vote
of the state is very little in excess of
200,000, it is easy to estimate how seri
ously the old party lines will be broken
into. Already far-seeing politicians of
the old parties are trimming their sails
in the direction of the independent
movement, and it is probable that be
fore the campaign is over a good many
others will be steering in the same
What is back of this new departure?
What is the cause of this apparently
spontaneous uprising of the farmers?
The answer was very well told by an
alliance official yesterday, when he said
the McKinlet bill and the supreme
court decision in the Minnesota railway
cases were responsible for it. "If it
has come to pass," he remarked, "that
the war taxes are to be increased, in
stead of reduced, that luxuries are to
exempted from taxation while the taxes
on necessities are retained; if the doc
trine is seriously announced from the
highest judicial tribunal iv our land that
a state shall not have the power to reg
ulate its local affairs nor to control the
corporations of its own creation, then,
in my humble judgment, it is tune that
the yeomanry were asserting their
sovereignty. We are here to stay."
After this terse and vigorous statement
of causes the Globe made no further
effort to seek an explanation.
Nor is this independent movement to
be confined to Minnesota. The farmers
of South Dakota led off several days
ago, while Mr. Waudei.l, who is booked
for the United States senate from that
state, was on hand yesterday, encour
aging the Minnesota farmers to break
loose from the old parties. The same
movement is also taking definite shape
in many of the Southern and Western
states. The alliance leaders in North
Carolina and Georgia have publicly sig
nified their purpose to establish a new
party in those states. The farmers of
lowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and
other Western states are likewise organ
izing, aud all the indications are that
before another year has elapsed there
will be a tremendous alliance breeze
blowing all over this country.
The Globe is carefully watching the
movement, and will keep its readers
thoroughly posted on its progress. If
our farmer friends can manage to keep
their organization out of the hands of
the professional politicians, they are lia
ble to accomplish great reforms. But it
has been their bad luck in all former
political movements to be wrecked on
the fatal shoals ot treacherous manage
ment. We will see how they come out
Unusual interest is being manifested
in Pennsylvania politics this year, not
because of any important results that
may be expected, but rather because it
will determine the strength of Matt
Quay's bossisnu If he has things
his own way,it will insure the perpetua
tion of his power over the Republican
machine. If he is unhorsed in the
home combat, he will have to step down
and out from the head of the Repub
lican national committee. If Pennsyl
vania were like any other statd, Quay's
dethronement would be the natural se
quence of the recent newspaper expos
ures which have put Quay in awfully
bad light. But that which would ruin
a mau'3 political prospects in
any other community will make
a hero of him in Pennsylvania.
It is true there is a very bitter fight
against Quay in the Republican party
in Pennsylvania, and the most de
termined effort is being made to relax
his grip on the party machine. In the
THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MORNING. JUNE 17, 1890.
event of a failure to do this, many of the
Pennsylvania Republicans have made
up their minds to vote with the Demo
crats in hope of defeating the Republi
can state ticket that Quay will put up.
But it is just here that Quay exhibits
his fine work as a politician. There is
probably no state in the Union which
has more complications in its politics
than the Keystone state, and, taking ad
vantage of this fact, Mr. Quay
is devoting a good deal of at
tention to Democratic politics. He
is as industriously at work pack
ing the Democratic convention as
he is at work on the Republican con
vention. In case he succeeds in hold
ing his grip on the Republican ma
chine, as he fully expects to do, his
plan is to head off the bolting Repub
licans by influencing the Democrats to
put up a ticket that will play into his
hands. In a state where commercial
politics is the rule, Quay has a splen
did opportunity to exhibit his prowess
as a boodler.
The rank and the file of the Pennsyl
vania Democracy are apprised of
Quay's attempt to capture the Dem
ocratic state convention, and it is pos
sible that they will outwit the merce
nary leaders who propose to sell out to
Quay. If they do, the time is ripe for
making a Democratic state of Pennsyl
vania. In the larger cities, such as
Philadelphia and Pittsburg, the im
porters have rung the tariff reform cry
until the masses begin to discern that
their interests are not promoted by the
protective policy. And it may yet come
to pass that the combined power of
Quay and Camerox, with all their
genius for corruption, cannot stay the
tide of tariff reform, even in rock-ribbed
RETURN OF THE EDITORS.
The Minnesota editors have returned
from their Washington trip duly im
pressed with all thay saw and heard
during their sojourn in the nation's cap
ital. It is noted as being one of the
most pleasant,as well as one of the most
profitable excursions of the Minnesota
editorial association.and our quilldrivers
will long remember the many agreeable
features connected with it. The editors
owe a great deal to the railroad repre
sentatives, who excelled in courtesy and
attention.and particularly to Mr. Loud,
of the Baltimore & Ohio, who stayed
with the party during the entire trip.
While it is not a matter to make a big
fuss about, the Globe regrets that the
president's delay in receiving the
editors on their visit to the White house
should have been attributed to a wrong
cause. With characteristic generosity
of the profession, the editors take all the
blame upon themselves. They were
behind time in getting up to the execu
tive mansion, and of course had to await
the president's fulfillment of other en
gagements before they could have an
introduction. It would be a most
anomalous thing if even the president
of the United States could evade the
opportunity to grasp the honest hand of
a Minnesota editor.
In addition to the pleasures of the trip
and the benefits derived from rest and
recreation," our state editors are all the .
,better for having mingled with the
great men of the nation, and for having
looked in upon the workings of the sev
eral governmental departments. Many
of them now have a practical knowledge
of public affairs that they did not
possess before; and, doubtless, all of
them have come home with enlarged
and more liberal views. Then, too, they
had their patriotism refreshed by a visit
to the tomb of the illustrious Washing
ton. Taking it altogether, it was both
a pleasant and a beneficent outing for
the boys. May they have many more
such, and when the next excursion
comes off we hope to be one of the
happy throng. -
There was a large gathering of farm
ers at Leipzig not long since, that had
for its object the welfare of their class,
and yet had no interest for any public
functionaries, and in this country would
not have caused any politician to lose
sleep. The object of the convocation
was to organize an association for the
promotion of farm bookkeeping. Meth
od and organization have given shape
to most things in Germany, but it seems
to be a new idea there to extend them
to the financial details of farming. A
good deal of attention is being directed
to the subject. It is not merely to give,
in a general way, outgoes and incomes,
but to establish a comparative system.
The economics of special methods of
cultivation and crops under varying
conditions are to be shown in precise
figures. No doubt any capable farmer
will find large advantage in a rigid sys
tem of bookkeeping.
Canada has already moved in the
way of retaliation for the barriers to its
traffic proposed in the new tariff bill.
The balance will be largely against
this country when the problem is
worked out. It will be the same in
European countries. Retaliatory meas
ures are already in contemplation. A
general movement will be made in all
the ports against American shipments.
Special discrimination will be had ad
verse to the agricultural products.
They can get along without American
wheat, corn, cattle and other things a
good deal better than the producers can
without any foreign outlet. Some of
them will be extremely eager to find an
excuse for unfriendly disposition
toward the people on this side who
want to sell products of the soil.
When Speaker Kekd becomes a can
didate for president he will have trouble
to see a quorum of the employes in
breweries on his side. They have been
allowed to drink untaxed beer while at
work, but the revenue department in
sisted that it must all be drunk in one
room, which is very inconvenient in big
breweries. An amendment to a bill in
the house the other day aid away with
the single room feature. The vote was
a tie, and Speaker Reed was forced to
give the casting vote. It was an em
barrassing situation, and he hesitated
long, but finally decided for prohibition.
Perhaps the prohibitionists may see
a bit of encouragement in the statement
of the Brewers' Handbook, recently
issued, that there has been a considera
ble decrease in barrels of beer sold in
the prohibition states the past year, es
pecially lowa, where the reduction is
26,204 barrels. The Dakotas fall away
7,000 barrels. But the theory is bothered
by the fact that the largest decrease in
beer was in Massachusetts, where there
was no prohibition. Figures should be
used in sections by selection to do the
A man named Finch, who is labeled
inspector ,of training: schools in Eng
land, has recently made a report ot his
visit to this country to inspect the
school systems, and says that the public
schools in the United States are no bet
ter than the elementary schools in Eng
land. Of course he did not know of the
St. Paul schools, but he was probably
one of the narrow-gauge fellows who
can never see any first-class things off
of the little islands he is familiar with.
It is observed by those who focus
their vision in that direction, that, while
professional base ball is lagging this
season, as specially understood by stock
holders in the leagues, there is more
interest in amateur base ball than in
any former year. There is something
about the business feature of the game
that the sensitive populace doesn't en
thuse over. The philosophy of the
thing may be worked by the individuals
to suit themselves.
A New Hampshire paper speaks oC I
3,000 mortgages on real estate in the
smallest county in population in that
state. It has been supposed that real
estate mortgages were one of the inci
dents of a new country that disappear
as the resources are developed and peo-.
pie get into steady ways. The farmers
there, too, are talking as if they had not
been helped by the modern beneficiary
theories of national policy. They are
losing their faith in protection.
The zone arrangements of passenger
tariffs in Hungary involved a very con
siderable reduction in fares. After be

the iailroad people in this country to
give the matter some stady.
Tiie tariff coming the Republican

would be less concern.

ans struck New York
Matters. yesterday for the pur
pose of persuading the
Northern Pacific Railroad company to
build a new branch line in their state,
says the New York Press. The party
consisted of ex-Gov. S. T. Hauser, Chief
Justice Henry N. Blake, of the state
supreme court; D. A. Cory, president
of the Helena chamber of commerce
and a member of the legislature; Dr. C.
K. Cole, a member of the chamber of
commerce; A. M. Holter, representing
the Helena board of trade and a mem
ber of the legislature, and A. J. Selig
man, who is chairman of the Republi
can state committee, having gone to
Montana several years ago to direct
there the interests of the Seligmansof
this city. Gov. Hauser said to
me yesterday about the pro
posed road: "It is wanted for
the purpose of opening up the
Castle Mountain mineral region, where
new gold and silver mines have been
discovered which promise to outrival
Leadville, Col. The mines lie sixty-five
miles from Helena, as the crow flies,
but the road will be about seventy-five
miles long, and join the main line of
the Northern Pacific at apoint»about
fifteen miles from Helena.
Chief Justice Blake was a prominent
figure in the recent political contests iii
Montana. He was a member of the cau
vassing board of the new state, by rea
son of his office, under the first con
stitution, and he was elected chief jus
tice at the first state election,
so that he can be said to have
the indorsement of the .people of
the new state in a marked degree.
Talking with me about the political
fight there, he said : "While I was in
favor of a compromise being made by
the conflicting interests, so that a Re
publican and a Democrat should be
seated in the federal senate, and so that
the legislature should come together
jnd enact laws, there has never been
any question in my mind that the throw
ing out of Precinct 34 in the Silver Bow
district was right beyond dispute. The
question has been decided now in every
possible way in which it can be passed
upon. Two weeks ago, in the case of
the sheriff, whose election was affected
by the same proceeding, the supreme
court of the state rendered a decision
which favors the view I hold, and which
was the same as that held by the United
Speakine about ttie interests of Mon
tana, Justice Blake said: '-The state

'Years ago Mr.,Allerton was engaged
in the stockyards and cattle business in
Jersey City, his partner being Senator
McPlierson, of that state. There is an
old itory about how McPherson came to
engage in politics, which I once heard
Allerton tell. The stockyards had be
come obnoxious to some of the property
owners in their viciuity. and a move
ment of citizens was started for the pur
pose of getting the yards abated as a
nuisance. It became a political issue,
and one day the partners sat down to
consider the situation. They came to
the conclusion that one or the other
must go to the legislature to protect
their interests. Allerton was a Re
publican and McPherson was a Demo
crat. They canvassed the situation
carefully as to which one could best se
cure the position of member of the
legislature. Their judgment said that
McPherson could be nominated and
elected, and so he went to the front and
began the political career which brought
him finally into the United- States sen

Question, made a good many tim

about putting money into them. A cap
italist who has had many years' experi

yesterday that renewals were almost
an impossibility and new mortgages
very difficult to place. :
: "The farmers need money, and can't
get it," said he, "and they can lay the
blame for it at the door of the tariff

question. No one pretends that
the farmers as a class" are not
poor, but advertising the fact
has made a good many people
with mortgages decide to turn their
money into other channels. The with
drawal of financial aid has thus given
the farmers another kick down hill, and
pretty soon they will be at the bottom.
"There is one thing worth remember
ing about farm mortgages," continued
he. "The interest is paid much more
regularly than on railroad bonds ana
stocK, and when renewals are asked for,
the' holder of the mortgage does not suf

longer than at \ first anticipated. ■ Fore
closures are rare. But whatever the
result is to be, here 1 am with three

They Will Furnish Structural
Iron Cheaper Than Pitts
Eastern Liquor Dealers Set
Out to Down the Whisky
Rebates Paid in Trust Certif
icates Tie Up a Lot
Pittsburg, Pa., June 16.— A deckled
sensation has been created among Pitts
burg iron aud steel manufacturers by
the offer of a Belgian iron firm to sup
ply the structural iron necessary for
the new court house at Minneapo
lis 25 per cent cheaper than it could be
furnished by Pittsburg manufacturers.
The contract is a large one $3,000,000
being the estimate cost of the building.
A member of the firm of Carnegie,
Phipps & Company, who are the larg
est structural iron manufact
urers of Pittsburg, said to-dy:
"The actual price of beams and
channell to-day is 3.10 per 100
pounds, and of angles 132.15. lam con
vinced that the Belgian firm cannot
undersell those prices 25 per cent. They
charged $3.25 for the iron which was
furnished under the contract at Austin,
Tex., and since that time wages and
other items of cost have advanced in
the foreign markets fully 17 Der
cent. Under these circumstances I
hardly see how they can com
pete for the Minneapolis contract."
At the Belgian consulate, however, the
genuineness of the offer was confirmed,
and it was further learned that the con
sul in Pittsbnrg had been notified by
the Belgian firm of its intention. He
said that already Belgians had secured
contracts for structural iron at Houston
and Austin, Tex., and when the offer
was made for the Minneapolis court
house he had no doubt that the foreign
manufacturers were prepared to make
good their claims.
NOW THE WORM TURNS.
Liquor Dealers Seek to Down the
New Fork, June 10.— The wholesale
liquor dealers of New York and viciniiy
are moving against the Distillery and
Cattle Feeding company, better known
as the whisky trust. They are
determined to down it if possible.
To-day a meeting was held in this city
to perfect preliminary plans to fight the
trust. About forty wholesalers came
together in response to the call sent out
by the committee, which consisted of
James Loucheim, Peter M. McQuade.
John Keresey, D. M. Koehler and VV. A,
Tyler, tfromiont of town those present
included Ula and Myers, ot
Philadelphia; J. Kohler, of Newark ;M.
Bird, of Chicago, and James Walsh, of
Cincinnati. The objection of the whole
sale meu is directed against the certifi
cates issued by the trust. When the
trust secured control of all the distil
leries they advanced prices seven cents
a gallon all round, but issued a
rebate certificate of five cents a
gallon, payable six months from
date of issue, provided that the party to
whom such certificate was issued used
exclusively goods ot trust. The certifi
cates were non-transferable and could
only be realized upon by sending
them for collection upon maturity
to the German-American bank at
Peoria, 111. In sending his certifi
cate the wholesaler had to sign an
affidavit printed on the back of each
certificate that he had not purchased
any goods during the six months from
any party but the trust. By this scheme
the trust held about a million and a half
ot money belonging to the wholesale
men, upon which they do not pay a cent
of interest. This is what the whole
salers object to. Mr. Loucheim called
the meeting to order. He said dealers
Taxed , Beyond Endurance
By the trust, and an exchange of views
was to be had as to what steps were
necessary to meet these impositions.
Peter McQuade' moved that a commit
tee of twenty-five of the leading whole
salers be appointed to confer with the
trust and see if the 5 per cent rebate
will be withdrawn. Mr. Meyer, of Phil
adelphia, said that it would be use
less to confer with the trust, as they
would not rescind the rebate. Mr. Mc-
Quade said if that was so, then the best
thing to do was to build a distillery
that would supply New York dealers,
and one in Philadelphia for the same
purpose there. This move might bring
the trust to its senses. Mr.Kerezey's plan
was to have a committee appointed
to whose custody all trust certificates
received by wholesalers may be turned
over. These certificates could be held
as a menace to the trust. In a short
time the amount would be large enough
to build a distillery with. Mr. Meyers
said Philadelphia dealers had al-*
ready organized. They were ' ready
to join bands with their New York
brethren in any fight against the trust:
Mr. Schlesinger favored a conference
with the trust. Mr. Kerezey. moved to
amend McQuade's motion so that ten
members instead of twenty-five be
appointed to confer and report
what, they .considered- would be
for the best . interests of the
trade. Mr. Kerezey said that the
supposed : value of the whisky trust's
plant was $35,000,000, but its actual
value was not over $3,000,000. He
thought the members could raise money
enough to equal this sum, and they
could stand a little loss at first. If the
committee reported favorably .on
a distillery each member was to
subscribe to the amount of $5,000. j
Mr. Hoyt explained that the weekly
consumption of high proof spirits in
New York was 2,000 barrels. The mo
tion as amended was passed, and the
committee appointed by the chair was
as follows: Peter McQuade. Martin R.
Cook, Edward W. Ashley, John Kere
zey, W. A. Tyler. Robert A. ; Greacen,
Angelo Mevers, Max 1). Stern, Charles
H. Mayer and Louis Steinhardt.

that many beautiful ladies took up with

fine offers, was thus abruptly answered
by a mountain maiden:
A young friend of hers.during a walk,
requested her; to go into a delightful:
canebrake and there .eet him the hand
somest reed. She must get it in once
going . through, without turning. "She
went, and : coining " out, brought him
quite a mean reed. When he asked if
that was the . handsomest one she saw.
"Oh, no," replied she, *'I saw many
finer as I went along, but I kept on in
hopes of a much better, until I had got

;"I landed . at Georgetown, Demcrara,
during a Southern cruise, and was there
two days without seeing a person not
'loaded with a jag.' There might have
been sober folks In that little warm
• town, but I did not see them. The cause '.
of the spectacular spree was the salo
of liauor at an extremely low rate.
The excise board refused to renew
the license of the Bengal Tiger ruin
shop in Rock street, and the owner had
but four days to dispose of his stock.
He announced that he would sell his
goods at less than cost. The love of
the common people of th« West Indies
for rum is proverbial, and it is needless
to say that they apprreciate cheap rum.
As soon as it was known that a pint of
white rum was being sold for sixpence
and a quart for a shilling, the people
' crowded into the shop, and the excited
rush was almost a riot. .
"The news was spread over the land
and customers came from all directions,
the stream of people increasing as tho
news extended. Finally the mob was
so noisy that the entire police depart
ment was called out to regulate th
traffic. The people seemed to think
it would show a lack of grati
tude not to drink at such a low
price, and they did their best to
get rid of the stock. The government
allows a citizen to buy only one quart at -
a time, or some . o,ne would have pur
chased the entire establishment at once.
For two days the riot kept up, and from
the start the whole town was on a big
spree. It was the strangest sieht I ever
witnessed or ever heard of, and it
seemed barbarous to me, fer I was all
alone in my soberness."
