There is a rumor prevalent to the
effect that the mayor has determined on
Ins list of appointees to membership in
the upper branch of the city council,
and their names are given. The Globe
lias the utmost confidence in Mr.
Smith's judgment in such matters, and
has no doubt that his selection will com
mend itself to the better class of our
citizens. It suggests, however, that un
der the law the question of the resi
dence of the councilmen .will have to be
taken into consideration. The body
when finally constituted will have
to consist of lour members who
live east of Wabasha street, tour who
live vest of Wabasha street and one
who lives in the Sixth ward. Such an
arrangement adhered to may make it
necessary to leave out some trood man
whom the city would be -lad to see in
the chamber, but it is the law, intro
duce;! for an adequate reason, and will
have to be followed. If the appoint
ments are made irrespective of locality,
the body will be illegally formed, and
the confusion which will follow will be
more difficult to remedy than it will be
to disappoint some expectant appointee.
The mayor has probably considered this
point, but the ("lore refers to it be
cause there is a rumor on the .street that
it i- about to be overlooked.
THE USURY BILL.
it looks a little bit squally for that
drastic and unwise measure, the Davis
usury bill. It went through the senate
opposed by many of the best men. and
supported by others under protest, and
ionly in response to what they believed
to be the wishes of their constituents.
The Dill bill, which effects no more
radical chansre in the existing law than
to reduce tiie legal rate from 7 to <> per
cent, and the contract rate from 10 to S
per cent, was adopted in the house by
an overwhelming majority. The Davis
bill is now awaiting consideration in
the house, and. the Bull bill is await
ing consideration iv the senate.
People who have tested the temper of
the house say that the Davis bill can
■not pull through there. The represent
atives are as earnest in their desire for
cheap money as any one can be, but
they have heard from home since the
legislature has been in session, and they
■ have very authentic information that to
make money hard to get is not the way
to make it cheap. There is no doubt at
all that the monstrous attempt under
taken in the Davis bill, to compel men
to work for nothing and to hold an in
nocent non-resident responsible for the
dishonesty of his local representative,
even though be does not sanction it, and
gets no profit from it, has already
checked the tree income of foreign
money to Minnesota. Of all times under
the sun, the last few months have been
the most unhappy for agitation on such
a subject, it is as though men should
.strike for higher wages when there was
nothing doing in their trade, and when
even the most skillful could find no em
ployment because no one needed his
services. If (here were any sense at all
in usury laws, the time to pass them is i
when money is so plentiful that it is a !
('rug in the market. But when a man ,
cannot borrow at 20 per cent, what sense
is there in making it a crime for him to
borrow at 10?
It the house will not pass the Davis
bill, nor the senate the Bull bill, this
session will go by with no legislation on
this question. That would seem to be
a very desirable outcome. The popular
mind does not appear to be ripe for the
wisest treatment of this great problem
at present. All this debating will not
Ibe in vain if it opens men's eye.- to see
what would be the ideal interest statute.
In this it would be provided that money
should bear interest at some rate, 5, <; or
7 percent per annum, as the legislature
should think best, unless the parties to
the transaction should contract other
wise. This would be sufficient.
LOANS ON CHATTELS.
The Globe, in advocating an interest
bill of this character, does not overlook
the wrongs which are done the poor by
those who prey on their necessities.
But the Davis bill does not affect them,
nor in general do thej seem to have any
vigorous spokesman in either house of
the present legislature. The rates which
pawnbrokers may charge are not regu
lated by the general usury law. and the
heavy tribute which they exact from
the men and the women who are too
weak to resist their demands and too
poor to secure redress can still be
levied. This branch of the usury prob
lem is a study by itself. Once in a while
the horror of it is ventilated in a court
of law, and the public stands aghast at
what the needy are forced to endure.
People who loan money on chattels say
in their own defense that high rates are
inevitable, because the risks of the busi
ness are so great and the security so un
certain. They claim that even with all
they charge there is not more than a fair
return to them for the use of their capi
tal and for the time and attention they
have to give to watching it. There
probably is something in this, but it
does not afford any solution of the
trouble. And in general, here as else
where, legislation seems to have ac
complished little for the relief of the
nameless oppressed. ill the East, ef.
forts more.' or less successful have been
made to establish banks where money
can be borrowed at; fair: rates on the
security of personal property. The
stockholders in such concerns, in the
beginning, have to be from the class
which is willing to make the experi
ment because good may come of it.
But, unless the pawnbrokers are right,
enterprises of this kind ought to pay a
reasonable return without exacting in
terest much above the rate charged in
ordinary banking institutions. The ele
vation and salvation of the poor, if they
come at all, will be achieved by in
dividual and organized measures in their
behalf made by good people who are
sorry for them and would help them.
The state can and ought to do some
thing, but the great work is . accom
plished by agencies very different from
legislatures and executives. .

pioneers of journalism in this countn^and

ninety days on a most frivolous charge of
libel. No man, perhaps, in his profession
has so frequently been thrown Into intimate
relations with the press of tnis country as
has Phineas Taylor Barnum; it is doubtful
if any man has so largely profited by
such relations. In view of many dis
astrous experiences, it cannot be said
that be was pre-eminently a lucky man. But
whenever ill-luck set heavily against the cur
rent of Ins financial interests, strong common
sense and business sagacity came to his aid

THE SAINT PAUL PALLY GLOBE
A DAY OF SURPRISES.
House Members Do Not Place
Much Stock on the Davis
Substitute the Hompe Rail
road Bill For That Intro
duced by Mr. Searle,
Recommend the Passage of
the Bell Railroad Land
And Decide in Favor of an
Eight-Hour Day on Pub
Tne sessions of the house yesterday were
of a very lively description. The preliminary
skirmish was over the Davis interest bill, and
otherwise known as Senate File No. 1. Two
reports were presented by the committee on
banking. Cue report, recommending the in
definite postponement of the bill, was signed
by Messrs. Capser. Dearing, Walsh, M., and
Lloyd; and the other report sent the bill
back without recommendation and was
signed by Messrs. Lyman, Holler, Gilmore
and Carleton. Mr. Capser opeded the dis
cussion Willi the remark that not one
member of the committee favored the
passage of the bill. Mr. Greer pleaded
that the bill should be placed on
general orders and made a special order for
Friday. This proposition was favorably
commented upon by Mr. Feig. cut Mr. Searle
did not look upon it with kindly feeling. He
wanted the bill referred to Messrs. Gieer.
Feig and Lynn for the purpose of making
such amendments as were found desirable.
Mr. Capser strenuously opposed any such
reference, insisting upon* a vote being* taken
right away upon the indefinite postponement
of the bill. He also rounded up the Alliance
members by declaring that "the chairman of
the Alliance state committee appeared before
our committee and opposed the Davis bill."
Mr. Searle agreed to withdraw his motion,
and therefore Mr. Greer was given the right
to put to a vote a motion to suspend the
rules and have the bill under special order
for Friday. The vote was disastrous to those
who favor the bill. A two-thirds vote is re
quired to suspend the rules, and the roll
call revealed GO voting in favor, with 21)
The bill accordingly takes its place at the
foot of general orders, which already con
tains over 300 bills. luless the rules are sus
pended and the bill specially acted upon, it
is likely to never be heard of again.
Mr. Reeve's bill regulating the rate of in
terest was also summarily treated by the
committee on banking. This bill makes the
legal rate of interest ana 8 • per cent in the
absence of any contract specifying any other
rate. It was recommended to be indefinitely
postponed, but the house agreed to have it
go upon the calendar.
A Fight Ahead.
A minority report from the committee on
agriculture, to the bill separating
the agricultural college from the university,
was .submitted, sigued by Messrs. Greer,
Reeve, Coburu, Starks, Coates and Zelch.
The majority report favoring separation,
and, therefore, indorsing the bill, is signed
by Messrs. Doyle, llarwiek, Tripp, Sheets,
Campion, Moore, Wright, Sinclair and Peter
A motion to lay the minority report on the
table was voted down.
Indorsed < liamplin.
The committee on rules submitted a report
which indorses the ruling of the speaker in
regard to the vote on reconsidering bills. It
piovides that, in order to reconsider any bill
that has passed the house by an affirmative
vote, a majority of ail members must vote for
such consideration. The report was adopted.
Hompe Bill Goes.
As was generally expected, when the house
went into committee of the whole— Mr. Greer
In the chair— the senate substitute railroad
bill was quietly shelved, and the Hompe bill
substituted in its place. The vole which se
cured this substitution stood, yeas 54, nays
'.ii. Mr. Searle cordially supported the
action by which the HoinDe but was thus
substituted for the bill which he so skillfully
brought and kept before the house, despite
the opposition of the Alliance members.
There is practically no difference between
the Hompe ana the Searle bill:*, and the
former having passed the senate, it is only
proper the substitution should take place.
There is now no doubt that the legislature
•will enact a railroad law, and a law which is
favorable to the people, us -well as dealing
fairly with the railroads.
The Alliance members do not look upon
the Hompe bill favorable. Mr. Maguire
stated that it did not come up to the demands
of the farmers. The bill is at the head of
general orders, ana will probably come up
for discussion to-day.
Very Pretty Fight.
The fight of the day was upon the bill in
troduced by Mr. Beil forfeiting the grants of
railroads failing to comply with the law. This
bill aims at the forfeiture of two grants— the
Duluth. St Cloud, MauKato, Austin & South
ern railroad and the Duluth & Winnipeg
roads. Mr. Bell was willing to exclude the
latter road from the provisions of the bill,
but an amendment providing for this was
voted down. The bill was keenly fought by
Speaker Cbamplln, Mr. Knudson and others.
A very effective speech against the bill was
delivered by Mr. Diepolder, of Nicollet. He
enlarged upon the unfairness of revoking the
laud aranl of the Duluth & Mankato road at
this time. The road had until tbe end of
1892 in which to complete its line, and if it
failed to fulfill its contract under which the
lands had been granted let the legislature
two years hence deal with it. He enlarged
upon the desirability of having ibis line
built. It would be a great thing for the
farmers, as it would give them an independ
ent line to Duluth, which would be better
able to compete against the Minneapolis
wheat rings, resulting in the agriculturists
getting better prices for their grain.
Two motions to Indefinitely postpone were
voted upon. The first one was with the
amendment added to the bill, excluding the
Duluth & Winnipeg road from Us provisions.
This was lost by a vote of 4:5 yeas to 48 nays.
The amendment was subsequently got rid of,
and then the motion to indefinitely post
pone the bill was carried yeas sl, nays 49.
When the committee reported, this decision
was reversed. The vote was upon the in
ducement ot the committee's report to in
definitely postpone the bill.

■ An Itislit-liour Day.
Mr. Long, of Hennepin, succeeded in ob
taining a favorable recommendation for his
till establishing eight hours a day's labor on
public works. The vole was: Yeas, 42;
nays, 32 . Mr. Walsh K. A.L of Ramsey,
delivered a very effective speech in support of
the bill. It was one in which the worKing
people of the state were very desir
ous of seeing become a law. He
eloquently pleaded against any attempt to
confine the bill to any particular counties; it
was one which should be made to apply to
the state at large. Mr. Walsh referred to, the
unrest among the people owing to the grind
ingoDpressiou of capitalists and monopolists,
and demanded for the working classes this
concession of an eight-hour day at the hands
of the state government. The speech was
well received and was worthy of the bright
young member of the Ramsey delegation.

THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 9, 1891.
- MANAGERS'. MEETING. . !
They Talk of the Devastation to
Be Wrought by the McHale Bill.
. "What's free for us to do. we slight;
What s forbid, whets the appetite."
"The poet who wrote the above lines had a
clear perception of human nature,"" said
Manager - David Henderson, ot : the .Crystal .
slipper company, to a Globe representative
last evening.-, You ask me what I. think of
the^ McHale anti-tights bill,' which passed the
senate committee of the whole yesterday.
. I do not know the projectors of the
bill, and would be unwilling to doubt their
sincerity iv this matter. If we look back
a few hundred years, we find that the Pur
itans, during the time of Oliver Cromwell, "
closed up all places of amusement and placed
a ban upon stage plays and" players. What
was the result? The succeeding era was the
most debased and licentious in the hlstorv of
E-iglaud. Wycherley. congreve, Smollett
and a number of other men wrote plays and
presented scenes on the stage of the theaters
lauding the most flagrant lewdness and im
morality. . The projectors of this bill may be
sincere, but I feel convinced that, if this "law
is placed upon the statute book of Minne
sota, it will in . the long run be productive
of a vast amount of harm." . People who
make an . attack upon the stage are morally
debased. I can use no other word, and have
no appreciation of art in any. shape or form
whatever. They look upon the grosser side,
andean only discover in the most Imagina
tive paintings and pieces of sculpture the
grossest and most vulgar immorality. Should
the McHale bill pass, it would shut up every
theater in the state. Shakespeare could not
be presented, neither could comic opera;
the spectacular productions of the best kind
would be entirely shut out, and even the
innocuous farce-comedy . of the time, in nine
cases out of ten, would" be ■ prohibited from
coming into the state."
Manager L. N. Scott coincided with Mr.
Henderson's views, and said that if the bill
became a law the Metropolitan opera house
and all theaters in the slate would be com
pelled to close. " •-'*
"I should leave the state aud seek another
field," continued Mr. Scott '-for it would be
impossible to keep a theater open. As a law
abiding citizen I would have toobev the law;
and what would be the result* Why, Marie
Wainwright, who appears here next Monday,
would be prohibited from presenting the
sweetest character in the whole range of lit
erature, Viola. Madame Modjeska could not
fulfil her contract to play Rosalind, .Margaret
Mather would be unable to present Joan of
Arc:. in fact, every actress. who is engaged
in presenting the legitimate drama and com
edy would find on the border of the state a
warning sign that beyond that beyond that
line they dare not proceed. I would have to
cancel all my contracts made for the appear
ance of the best comic opera and spectacular
companies traveling through the states. The
vast audiences which have every night this
week filled the theater have testified by their
presence and applause appreciation of the
production of The Crystal Slipper.' • Do you
think that the best people of the city would see
this olay, accompanied by their "wives and
daughters, it they thought" for a moment the
appearance of the majority of the company
in lights was harmful or immoral? 1 con
sider that it is au insult to even infer for a
second that the people of this city are in
moral danger and cannot be trusted" to see a
Viola or Rosalind in tights. lam not speak
ing as a theatrical manager, but as an or
dinary citizen fiee from bias or prejudice,
and you may quote me to that effect'
Arnold Kalman, one of the directors of the
opera house, said that he indorsed the state
ments of Managers Henderson and Scott in
every way. Continuing. Mr. Kalmau said
that he was engaged in having designs made
for a short skirt which he proposed calling
the "McHale petticoat,'"and if the bill became
a law be would furnish all actresses wearing
tights with one of the same. If this did not
meet the provisions of the proposed law, he
would call a meeting of the directors of the
theater, and propose lie purchase of a large
number of nether garments worn by the male
The following communication was received
by Manager Henderson last evening from a
famous actress iv New York:
Dear Mr. Henderson: I have seen in the
papers a copy of the McHale bill, and. know

WANTS HEAVY DAMAGES.
Editor Paratiis Brings Suit
Against the Pioneer Press.
E. A. Paradis, of the Midway Sews, has
instituted an action against the Pioneer
Press to recover $5,000 damages for defama
tion of character. The suit grow? out of
strictures made against the State Editorial
association by the Pioneer Press relative to
publishing "the general laws of the
state in a supplement and circulated
with the newspapers of the suae. The cost
of ' preparation of the supplement by the
Pioneer Press two years ago was thought to
be extortionate and the editorial association
printed the laws in the form of a sugplement
as a co-operative movement, adjusting the
expenses pro rata. In his complaint Paradis
alleges that the Northwestern Newspaper
Union is an adjunct of the Pioneer Press,
and that m 1880 about 200 editors
and . publishers of newspapers, believing
thai said Northwestern Newspaper Union
was charging, had charged, did charge and
would charge a much larger sum of money
for the printing of said session laws, as afore
said, than the actual cost of said printing,
and desiring and intending to save said ex
cessive cost and expense to and for them
selves, did in 1880 organize a committee on
printing of said association of said editors,
publishers and newspapers, which was to be,
was, ever since has been, and now is. actually
known as and actually is said printing com
mittee of "The Minnesota Editois' and Pub
lishers" Association of Minnesota."
Paradis alleges that as secretary of the edi
torial association and chairman of a special
committee of the organization he has been
at all times and now is active and zealous iv
advancing the welfare and objects of said
association and especially in resistiug ihe
extortionate demands arid charges of said
Northwestern Newspaper Union for - the
printing of said session law a.
It is further asserted that the Northwestern
Newspaper Union "did concoct, print, issue
and generally circulate through said state of
Minnesota, and especially among the mem
bers of said association, "a false, defamatory,
malicious, absurd and unprovoked printed
publication and circular, or supplement,
wherein and whereby this plaintiff was di
rectly and by implication and in
nuendo accused and charged with publishing
and circulating throughout said state a
circular or supplement containing alleged
extracts trom other newspapers of said state,
• opposing or claiming to oppose said "Minne
sota Editors' and Publishers' association" in
the printing of said session laws of said
present session of said legislature, and to
favor the publication and printing thereof by

features, some of which will be novel and
very entertaining. The "ail-around athletic ■
contest is a feature now first adopted here in
St. Paul It's design?., is a very good
one, being- to encourage the gen
eral development of the body. Some
members of a gymnasium naturally take
mote interest In one fend ef exercise and
some In another, but if the favored exercise
is followed up to the . exclusion of ; other
forms of exercises a one-sided ' development
ensues, and it is to counteract this tendency
by giving prises, which are awarded to the
contestants showing the best general average
in a series of varied exercises that the "'all
around athletic contests".' are adopted. The
gold and silver medals for the tug of war are
now on exhibition at Mussetter's drug store.
THEIR BUSINESS DAMAGED,
But the Short Lines Will Maintain
Their Stiff Fares.
The report was circulated . yesterday that
the Great Northern and Milwaukee short
lines had decided to cut their interurban
rates to just one-half the present fare on
May 1, The reason alleged was the encroach
ment of the electric line on interurban travel.
The latter line has, since its opening, been
carrying more people than accommodations
are provided for. Every car has been crowded
every day, and although cars are run every
ten minutes now, it is found utterly impos
sible with the present service to carry all the
people who want to ride. A representative
of the Globe yesterday called on General
Hassenger Agent Whitney, of the Great
Northern, with a view to discovering the
truth of the rumor that a reduction In fares
is to be made. That gentleman remarked
that he had been approached any number of
times on the same subject. Every few days
there was a new rumor concerning the in
tentions of the Great Northern in the matter
of interurban fares.
. "There is nothing in the story." he said;
"nothing at all; the short lines will make no
change in fares between the cities, as has
been already stated several times."
"It seems that the tremendous business
done by the electric road must certainly dam
age that of the short lines at present rates,"
remarked the visitor.
"Well, that is true. It has affected our bus
iness. We admit that: but the effect of the
competition has been no greater than was an
ticipated and prepared for."
