AN EXTRA SESSION*.
Editor Shepherd, of the New York
Mail and Express, who claims to oc
jupy more confidential relations with
President Harrison, than almost any
sue else, is authority for the statement
that the president intends to call an
extra session of congress to consider the
" force bill. Mr. "Shepherd's story
doesn't bear credibility on the face of
it, and yet there is a possibility of its
:ruthfuluess. Inasmuch as congress
;onveties in regular session early in De
:ember, one can hardly see the neces
sity for an extra session before that
however urgent its business might
ae. It would be almost like tempting
Providence for the Republicans to in
ject the force bill into their campaign,
and yet the audacity of this administra
tion is beyond all comprehension. Au
iacity, extravagance and corruption are
the ruling principles of the Fifty-first
congress, and it is not improbable that
She president has become infected.
There is an evident desire on the part
if the Republican leaders to have some
thing to obscure the tariff question in
many sections of the country, and they
imagine if they can revive the force bill
and thus force sectional issues, they
may be able to divert the attention of
the Western farmer from the tariff. In
their desperate straits they are liable to
- grab at straws, and as the federal elec
tion bill is the only thing in sight that
gives hope, it is just possible that the
president may issue a call for an extra
session. The extra session would not
convene until after the election, but the
fact that it had been called to consider
the force bill would give the Repub
lican organs and orators something to
spread themselves on. It is anything
with them to dodge the tariff.
TRUSTS ARE GROWING.
The St. Louis Republic compiles from
Its files a list of the trusts reported in
the dispatches as formed since the in
auguration of Harrison-. It would be
ah extreme statement that these are all
due to the success of the Republican
part}', but it is undeniable that the high
tariff policy is promotive of trusts, and
the pledge of a continuance or increase
of this sort of protection has contributed
to the formation of ..combinations and
trusts. New lots of them are being
formed under the protection of the Mc-
Kixley tariff. The list made up fills
several columns and comprises in the
main articles in common use. In each
case the amount of protection given the
trust by the tariff is specified.
For instance, window glass. It em
braces all the producers of this
glass in the country, and the
McKixi.ky tariff extends its foster
ing arm about it with a duty of $1.50 on
$1 of '■ value. This combination com
pleted the full absorption of that pro
duction last February, when prices were
advanced 15 per cent, the third advance
since December last. The McKinxey
■ act will give still larger opportunities
for enriching, their participants out of
" the docile public. The methods of this
trust are the common and familiar ones.'
A tariff is procured to shut out danger
. ous competition from abroad; then any
who refuse*:. to come. into the deal are
bought out or crushed. . The home mar-
X: ket is then at their mercy. To obviate A
. glut of goods ninny. of the mills are kept
'; idle portions of " the time ; and the
workmen '.'. deprived of employment.
r ln the ; case •; of •' this " glass trust
. most of the ; mills \ stopped are ■in the
, West. ■ This is explained by the fact
that th(! wain control of the trusts is in
the East, it is asserted that the coming
census will show a falling off in manu
factures in the West due to this preval
ent fact. These trusts have their grip
upon all the arteries of business lite,
and by the tremendous resources at
their command, control congress and
the agencies that are behind it. It is
not specially profitable to hurl denunci
ation at the men who compose these
trusts. They are not different from the
average of people. They simply avail
themselves of the opportunities afforded
them by the Republican poiiey of cor
nering the market. The policy is iuiq
uitous, and should be overthrown. It
will be when too people realize thesitu
DRUMMERS IN POLITICS.
"Whichever way the drummer talks
the election goes*' has cot to be a politi
cal proverb in this country. And there
is a great deal of truth in it. These
angels of commerce who flit about over
the land in such goodly numbers usually
obtain a pretty correct idea of popular
sentiment, and are never slow to pro
claim it. During the presidential cam
paign of 1868 a prominent New York
politician declared that the most dis
couraging sign for the Democracy was
that the drummers Mere all talking for
Accepting this as a correct criterion
by which to determine public senti
ment, the Democracy have great en
couragement this year. The commer
cial travelers are all talking against the
tariff, aud are predicting a sweeping
Democratic victory. This is reasonable,
for the MoKixi-ey bill is an awful stroke
on all commercial interests. There is
not a jobbing house in the whole coun
try but is more or less damaged by it.
As a ciass the drummers who travel lor
the jobbers are a brainy set of fellows,
bright, intelligent young men who are
capable of understanding the interests
of their peculiar line of business. They
know what hurts them and what bene
fits them. They furthermore know what
is good for the country. They know
that the prosperity of the wholesale
houses depends on the prosperity of the
country merchants, and that the coun
try merchants are dependent on the
prosperity of the fanners. When the
farmers suffer all classes of business
must languish. That is the history of
all trade and commerce in this country.
Hence the hurtful influences of the
McKixdet bill are too apparent for the
drummer to keep his moutn shut. He
has to talk, and he must talk against
the iniquitous measure. His conscience
couldu't be reconciled unless he did.
And as these brainy fellows, with the
gift of speech, invade every community
and mingle with the people, they make
a campaign committee surpassing in
power and influence those of the regu
lation sort. M

THE BACHELOR TAX.
France proposes to counteract Tols
toi's insane philosophy by a law which
is intended to encourage matrimony.
It is to be done by imposing a heavy tax
on bachelors. That plan may work all
right in France, where the people ad
here to the old ideas on economic ques
tions. But in this country, where the
dominant political party swears by the
beard of its prophet, McKimj:v, they
proceed upon the principle that the way
to increase a product is to tax it. Ac
cording to the .Republican doctrine a
tax on bachelors would result in a mul
tiplication of bachelors. The higher
the tax the more bachelors there would
be. If the bachelor tax had been ; in
cluded in the McKixi.ky schedule it
r would have been no time until matri
mony would have been brought to a
stand still. There could have been no
such a thing as marriage or being given
in marriage, for the country would have
been flooded with bachelors. This
sounds like a nonsensical proposition,
and so it is, yet it is in logical accord
with the teachings of the Republican
party, that excessive taxation is neces
sary for the prosperity of home indus

If South Dakota is not going to tol

relates to the internal economy, it is
evidently going to find out what refresh
ment for its soil is to be had in the ele
vation of the vast undercurrents. Tl:e
cjunty of which Huron is the capital is
to have artesian wells at once to water
50,000 acres, and in Brown a vote is to
be had on the question of sinking 200
wells. There is to be a general move
ment in the counties of the James river
valley, and it is believed that next year's
crops in an area of 1,000 square miles
will test the claims made for the system.
There is hardly a question that the
water supply will be found ample and
permanent, and the tests had show that
it can be made to do the service desired.
Recent publications of geological au

as to the practicability of the scheme.

Hons. "Dar" S. Hall and S. P. Snider,
is perfectly satisfied with the McKinley
tariff bill, and thinks it is just exactly
what the peopleof this purely asrit'iik
ural Northwest want. On being asked
about the outlook in his district, he said:
I think the prospect betier than two years
ago. At that time I was opposed by Canning,
the strongest mail in tiie Alliance party. The
opposition to me was united then, but this
fall it is divided. I think the fanners of our
district already begin to realize that an era
of good times "is setting in, and I do not look
for any great loss to the Republican rote in
my district. We are perfectly willing to
stand on the record made at the" last session
of congress. The Democrats prevented some
important measures from being passed, but,
nevertheless, we accomplished more benefi
cial legislation than any preceding congress
for ten years. I shall make a lively cam
paign, and feel confident of re-election."
"Charley" Gilman yesterday made the
announcement that he had decided not
to enter the congressional fight in the
Fifth district. He is, however, heartily
in favor of settine down very hard ou
present congressman, because of his ad
vocacy of the McKinley tariff bill. Mr.
Gilman has Ions; been a strong anti-pro
tectionist, and is thoroughly disgusted
with the course of Mr. Comstock during
the recent session of congress. Mr. Gil
man has not yet announced which can
didate he will support, but it is certain
that he will advocate the claims of
either Senator Whitman or Hon. Kittel
lion. William M. Springer, Illinois'
famous Democratic congressman, has
consented to spend a week in this state
and will speak at various places in the
Fifth district between the 19th and the
26th of this month. "Bill" Springer is
one of the most interesting men in
congress at the present time, and never
fails to stir things up in a political way
whenever he takes the stump. Mr.
Springer has been a member of con
gress from the old Springfield
district for sixteen years, during the
whole of which time he has been one of
the most earnest anti-protectionists in
the house. He is a man of magnificent
presence and his every sentence snows
his zeal and enthusiasm in the cause.
The people of the Fifth district are cer
tainly to be congratulated on their good
fortune. An effort will be made to in
duce him to dejiver an address in St.
Paul before he leaves the state.
The evening Republican organ cora^
plains because the Globe yesterday
made mention of the work being done
by Chairman Lowenstein, of the Repub-"
lican county committee, and persists
that the credit should be given Chair
man Fitzgerald and his excellent com
mittee. The latter probably includes
the renegade Tammany Hall Democrat
who is at present running the entire
Republican organization. The trouble
in the committee is probably due to the
fact that Tammany methods are
not popular in St. Paul, and there are a
few members of the committee who do
not believe in allowing an outsider,
even though he hails from such a per
fect organization as Tammany Hall, to
control the management of this cam
paign. The fact of the matter is that
Mr. Lowenstein is doing about all the
work that is being done around the
Minneapolis headquarters, and is, in
fact, the only man connected with the
organization who knows anything about
orgauization. Of course, there are a
lot of men on the Republican commit
tee who have got it in for Mr. Lowen
stein, and are trying to cry down his
work. But this will not go. The old
gentleman sits at his desk twelve hours
a day, pegging away at his work. Of
course he is so badly handicapped by
the open opposition of the "kids," and
the secret opposition ot other elements,
that there is no hope of his being able
to accomplish anything.

The Fourth district Democratic con
gressional headquarters were opened at
Room 13 at the Merchants' yesterday,
with Judgo Nethaway, of Stiiiwater, iv
Minnesota's congressmen voted for
the hated McKinley bill. Mr. Lind
tried to explain his former inconsist
ency, speaking against the bill but vot
ing for it, by saying that he voted for it
because he knew the senate would amend
it. Pleading the baby act is a favorite
pastime with Hon. John Lind.—Fair
Congressman Comstock has ignored
these demands, and has voted directly
contrary to his instructions. He has
proved himself to be an unworthy
representative of au intelligent people,
and should be retired to private life.
Mr. Whiteman stands on a tariff reform
platform, and has pledged himself to
vote and work for a reduction of war
taxes. In this attitude he and not Corn
stock represents the views of the Fifth
district people, regardless of party, and
he and not Comstock is entitled to their
votes.— St. Cloud Times.
Editor McMillan, of the Verndale
Journal, who. early in the campaign,
took the Times to task for its opposition
to Gov. Meriiam and called it cowardly
for taking such a stand, has changed the
tenor of his thoughts. He no longer
swears by Gov. Merriam, and hints that
his defeat would be a blessing.— Duluth
The Herald has frequently referred to
the ardent friendship borne Capt. Har
ries by those who best know him.
There is an attraction about the man
truly remarkable. His presence iv the
city to-day has gained him at least 100
new friends. Hon. William H. Sher
,wood, of Dresbach, a staunch Democrat
and one of the most prominent residents
Df Winona county, has, in the interest
of his friend, submitted to the Herald
for publication a brief sketch of the
career of Capt. Harries. Mr. Sherwood
has known him for thirty years. He
served in the army with him, and pro
nounces him one of the truest and most
patriotic citizens of the district.—Wi
1 lie Republican party lias placed itself
on record in favor of the McKinley bill.
It favors the force bill, but did not
want to risk its passage just at this
time with a congressional election pend
ing. They will pass it at the next ses
sion if possible. Hence the importance
of electing a congress this fall that will
set about the repeal of roonopoly-lepis
lation as soon as it is organized in the
winter of IS9l.— lndustrial Age.
The Republicans of Minnesota declare
that the tariff issues were settled in
ISBB and they have demanded of the
Democrats that they confine themselves
in this campaign to state issues. By the
time Judge Wilson has finished this
fall's campaign they will wish there
were fewer state issues for Democracy
to deal with.— West Duluth Sun.

Queer Antics of a Young
Woman on Record as De
Edward Rogers, who was arrested a
couple of weeks ago as a suspicious
character, and who on being searched
at the central station was found to have
a bad gun and a kit of burglar's tools
iv his possession, is found to be a well
known and dangerous criminal. He
will probably be asked to vacate the
vicinity ou his release from the work
house, whither he was sent for carry
ing concealed weapons. 'When Rogers
was brought in he was observed to be
badly scarred about the face, and the
presence of these marks on
his unprepossessing countenance is
now explainea. Rogers was
an active member of the notorious Bar
rett gang, and was in confinement at
the Hennepiu county jail when the at
tempt was made to break out by the
desperadoes confined there. It was
Rogers who led ;he revolt, and he it was
who made the desperate Cgiit with
Jailer Riley. In that fight he received
the scars which he will carry for life.
The jailer out Rogers' face all to pieces
with his keys, and the attempted de

BETRAYED BY THE PRICE.
Presence of a Crook Revealed by
the Sale of a Bicycle.
An important arrest was made last
evening at tlie corner of Seventh street
and Broadway by Officer Marian. The
arrest was made on suspicion of larceny,
and the man in question gave his name
at the central station as William Spauld
ing, which, however, is only one ot the
numerous fictitious ones under which he
has been known. Spaulding was en
deavoring to dispose of a brand new
thirty-inch wheel safety bicycle.
The price for which he was will
ing to waive his rights to the
machine was so ridiculously low as to
excite suspicion, and the attention of
the officer was called to his movements.
When brought into the station .Spauld
ing was recognized by Lieut. Schweitzer
as a professional crook who has been
under arrest several times on charges
of burglary and others of a similar
character. It is but a short time since
he burglarized the Clarendon hotel and
was caught at it. Several cocuments
were found in his possession which
may serve to clear up several unex
plained matters. One of these was as

WHO THREW THE BRICK?
Strange Antics of a Demented
You n° "Wanderer.
Nettie Breen is in trouble again.
Nettie is nutty, without a shadow of
doubt. A few weeks ago she was
brought into police headquarters, hav
ing been found wandering aimlessly
about the streets by an officer. She told
a strange story of navingrun away from
her sister who lives in Dakota. She
was sent out to the city hospital and
discharged the next morning. Last
night some one threw a brick through
the window of a clothing store on West
Third street. No one was in sieht ex
cept Nettie, and she was a tea in
arrested. She denied having thrown
the brick, but was placed in a
cell pending the arrival of Dr.
Ancker, who had been summoned, in
her lucid intervals the woman stated
tbat she had been twice committed to
Rochester, once from Mankato and
again from this city. She has also been
an inmate of the Northern hospital for
insane at Oshkosh.
The authorities of the latter institu
tion were telegraphed last night by Dr.
Ancker, and "a reply from them is
awaited ere Miss Breen's future destin
ation is determined on. She claims to
have a sister residiug in Fond dv Lac.
Dazed and Disorderly.
William £. Quirk was fouud lying In
a dazed condition last night at the cor
ner of Seventh and Locust streets. He
was sent to the central in the patrol
wagon, and as the man seemed ill Dr.
O'Brien was called. The latter ordered
Quirk's removal to the city hospital,
and he was at once conveyed there. On
his arrival the man recovered from his
torpor and became violently abusive. It
was found necessary to remove him
from the hospital, and the wagon made
a second trip, bruising the man back to
jail. He will appeav in the municipal
court this morning to answer to a charge
of disorderly conduct.
There was an autumn frolic up on
Ninth street yesterday iv which sev
eral iron pokers and other articles of
furniture were wielded by furious
femininity. Mrs. Ella Graham boards
at a house on the corner of Ninth and
Robert streets conducted by Mrs. Mary
Harrison. Both are colored women,
and in connection with more vigorous
arguments, each contributed her share
of billingsgate. Officer Newell arrived
on the scene in time to take the bellig
erents in custody, and they appeared
shortly afterwards in the municipal
court in more or less disfigurement.
Mine. Graham exhibited a facial fres
coing approaching high art, and was
not sparing in abuse of her adversary.
Judge Cory heard the evidence auddis
missed the case.
Gust Peterson, who is accused by
Mary Nelson of being responsible for
the existence of her boy baby, was in
court and the case was continued to
Oct. 5. There is every probability that
the case will be dropped from the rec
ords, as Augustus has secured a mar
riage liceuse and announces his inten
tion of assuming the responsibility
which is said to be his.
Jacob Ott waa disgustingly drunk on
Wednesday night, and was discovered
by an officer tryine to climb an electric
light pole for the drinks. He lost his
grip, aud fell into the arms of the law,
whose representative was awaiting the
denouement at the base of the pole.
Jacob went out for ten days. Dan
O'Connell, for getting too much ballast
on aud steering a wild course, was run
m on a charge of druuk and disorderly.
His efforts to prove that he was merely
suffering frora a headache were futile,
and he got thirty days.
«j; Adolphus Suemm was picked up In a
condition of i, frenzy ;; superinduced -by
bad whisky, and when brought into
the station swore he could whip any
man in ; Heidleberg. . : No one * cared to
dispute the German gentleman's • prow
ess, at least; so tax a* it affected the in
habitants of the city referred to, and lie
was locked up. Judge Cory gave him
thirty days. Dan Hayes, John Black,
and Ole Lee got ten days each for over
loading, and Joseph Murphy, a sad-eyed
vag. repeated in a mechanical sort of
way after the judjre "Thirty days."
Michael Hart got on a high bender and

on Wednesday night, lie was bound

Browning Champion Batter.
Long Pete Browning, the erratic left
fielder of the Cleveland brotherhood
club, is unquestionably the chamnion
batter of IS9O. It was thoueht towards
the end of the season that Orr.of Brook
lyn, and O'Rourke, of New York, were
in the lead, with Browning a close third.
This impression seems to have been
wrong. The official figures will show
that not only Browning leads, but leads
away off, and that Orr and O'Kourkeare
not even close to him. Orr will prob
ably finish second place, with O'Kourke
Myer and McAuliffe Slatched.

MAY TIE UP THE SYSTEM.
Northwestern Trainmen Insist
Upon an Advance in Wages.
Chicago, Oct. To-day it looked as
if a crisis had been reached in the con
ference between, the special committee
of the engineers and firemen of the
Northwestern system and the officials
of the road. An advance had been con
ceded in the wages of engineers hand
ling mogul engines, but a refusal met
the committee on their request for the
abolishment of the classification system
extending for a period over one "year.
In the morning President Marvin
Hughitt sent for the committee, and re
quested another conference in addition
to the long one brought. to a close last
evening. To-day's meeting lasted -all
day, an adjournment being taken
for : . lunch. It was at this
staee that matters began assuming a
threatening aspect. Before the close of
the : atternqon- session,- however. Pres
ident Hughitt assured the men that to
morrow morning a settlement would be
reached that would undoubtedly prove
acceptable. The classification system to
which such strong objections have been
made, provides that a fireman, after
promotion to a position as engineer,
after several years apprenticeship, shall
be classed as a third rate engineer and
receive pay only about half that paid
other engineers. During dull seasons
the company, it is charged, takes
advantage of the system and
places second and third-class men
on its engines, thereby reduc
ing wages thousands of dollars annually.
It was learned for the first time this
evening that the sub-committee, . who
are molding the conference, is the su
preme committee of the firemen and en
gineers of the entire Northwestern sys
tem, its chairman, Herman Wilts, of
Clinton, 10., being also chairman of the
general grievance committee. It has
the sole right to declare a strike should
one be deemed necessary. Affiliated
with the engineers is the Order of Kail
way Conductors, and the firemen are
members of the Federation of Railway
Employes, thus controlling the entire

DOX'T LEASE THE PIER.
Chicagoans Pile a Kick With the
Washington, D. C, Oct. 9.— A dele
gation from Chicago appeared before
Assistant Secretary of War Grant to
day and protested against the leasing by
the government of the south pier in that
city to the Illinois Central railroad.
Capt. Dunham, speaking for the delega

any person or corporation would greatly
injure navigation on the Chicago river.
The secretary took no action in the
matter to-day, and informed the delega

the pier had been received by the de
partment, and said that in case such ap
plications were received interested par
