CLAIMING THE CREDIT.
Republican papers attempt to find
room for partisan glorification in the re
moval of the restrictions upon the
American hoe: in Germany and Den
mark. The sagacity and diplomacy of
the administration are vaunted. It
need not be denied thai the representa
tives of the country have displayed a
creditable activity in presenting the
facts as furnished them to the objecting
powers, but their efforts would have
been wasted except for two points. The
people in those countries clamorously
want the meat; and, by virtue of the in
spection required by the act of congress,
which is substantially tin: measure in
troduced by Senator Vest, of Missouri,
and championed by Mr. Hatch, a lead
ing Democrat of that state, in the house,
the imputation of disease is removed.
These are the reasons why the hoe; is
given admission. Denmark does not cut
any great figure in the matter. It did
not buy much more than a half-million
dollars' worth of American pork, as
would appear from the reduction of im
ports from the United States. It im
posed the , prohibition only three years
ago, being the last of the continental
countries to follow the example of Ger
many. It is probable that France and
Austro-Hungary will also remove pro
hibition or restrictions that " have
amounted to prohibition in the early
future. This would mean a traffic of
considerable volume. A decade ago,
when the German interdiction was im
posed, the sales of American pork on
the continent exceeded J70.000.000. Last
year hardly more than 140,000,000 was
exported. It is probable that in the
prevalent scarcity of food products in
Europe the old figures may be approxi
mated if the other countries take favor
able action. This is a matter of con
gratulation, and serves to illustrate the
need of cultivating trade relations with
the great consuming peoples of Europe.
There is where reciprocity will count
tor the food producers of this country.
TOO STRUNG TO FIGHT.
The ensemble of the French army, as
indicated in its maneuvers, is vastly dif
ferent from that of 1870. There is an
air of solidity and power about its
movements that was wanting then.
Liui<Tfhe second empire the army rep
resented pomp ana hollowness. It was
imposing in its spectacular displays,
but fatal. weakness was shown when it
was put to the test of actual service.
The decision of capable discerners now
is that it has the discipline and sub
stance that lit it for the fighting that in
other times gave it distinction. None
are more sensible of this than the Ger
man officers, and they do not for
a , moment, suppose that in an
other contest their army could re
peat the. easy passage or two
decades ago. Nor is there any
ground for bravado on the French
side, as the German military situation is
contrasted. The French cannot sup
pose that the German army has abated
any of its solidity and efficiency, and
that it would be a honet'iil undertaking
to invade Germany and crush the em
pire. There is assurance of peace in the
completeness and equality of the miii
tary preparations of tne two nations.
The rational action would be for both to
concede the enormous strength of the
other, and that each is too big to be
whipped, ami mutually reduce the arm
ament to a basis that will relieve the
burden upon the nations and promote

FOR THE DEMOCRACY.
Five or six Democrats of national rep
utation and position are expected to ar
rive in St. Paul this morninr, on their
way to the Pacific coast. They are es
pecially charged with the work of ex
amining the conoition of the party in
this section, and of suggesting methods
of strengthening its organization to
those who have the matter here in hand.
Their stay in Minnesota will not be
very protracted, but in Washington they
will take an active part in campaigning,
and as they return they will tarry in
lowa for a while, doing what they can
to assist in the re-election of Gov. Boiks.
During the day they spend in St. Paul
they will have time for nothing more
definite than an informal conference
with such Democrats as care to call on
them at the Merchants' hotel, and in
Minneapolis to-morrow they will proba
bly carry out about the same pro
gramme. It is to be hoped that the
friends and good wishers of the cause
wiil take advantage of their presence to
learn from them what their wide ex
perience in political canvassing has
so thoroughly taught them, and at the
same time to show how much of interest
there is in this community over the re
claiming of the Northwest from Repub
lican rule, and by what sort of men it
Had these gentlemen time for a thor
ough examination, they would probably
lind the Democracy of Minnesota bet
ter organized to-day than it ever has
been before. They would find evidences
that a consistent effort is making to en
rol! the voters of the state, to distribute
literature among them, and to attach
them to the party through the force of
their intellectual convictions. At the
same time they would find evidences of
more complete harmony in the ranks of
the Democracy than there has ever beeu
before, and of a ereneral willingness to
lay aside personal differences and am
bitions and to co operate for the com
mon good. The spirit which has brought
about all this is one which will achieve
something, and the hope is not wanting
that with proper candidates to head its
ticket the victory in the next state elec
tion may fall to the Democracy. A man
personally popular, as a candidate for
governor, stumping the state with one
equally popular, who, in case of success,
should be returned to the United States
senate, would add the one element
which is needed to get the best results
out of all that the recent plans of or
ganization have accomplished.
MOKE SHODDY IN IT.
One phase of McKinieyism is illus
trated in the article Of cotton hosiery.
This has been mostly imported from
Germany, as it has not been produced
successfully in this country. The new
tariff enlarged the old duty of 40 per
ceqt so that the present tariff tax on
consumers is computed at about 55 per
cent. This takes three or four million
dollars from the consumers, and in ad
dition to the increase of the tax it is
found that a poor quality of goods is
being introduced. The case is stated by
a New York importer in this:
"We get the same stocking as before
in appearance, but it is nothing but
trash. Instead of the respectable two
thread yarns we were all so particular
to get before, we now get a miserable
single that has hardly strength enough
to nold together while it is running
through the looms."
This Drotection system is forcing the
poor man into shoddy clothing, and
even the cotton hosiery is to be miser
able trash. No wonder the people
stamp upon it as they discover its char
TOO MUCH WOOL.
The wool tariff is making trouble for
the Mckinleyites in Ohio. The only
mitigating sop they can find is a claim
that the number of sheep has increased
about 6 per cent the past year. Admit
ting this to be the fact, it is replied that
the price has fallen in the same time
over 13 per cent, so that the farmer is
getting less for his crop. Then, while
he gets less for his wool, he must pay
more for his woolen clothing, as the
tariff adds about 24 per cent to the pro
tection giveu the manufacturer of
woolens. The task, then, to persuade,
the Ohio wool grower that he is bene
fitted by the new tariff becomes too
hard for the most expert sophists. The
farmer gets less for his wool, and either
pays more for his clothing or is com
pelled to use stuff made of shoddy and
cotton This is but one of the tough
passages met in the McKim.ky system.
SHOULD HELP IT.
Chicago will apparently find opposi
tion in the East when it asks congress
for a loan of five millions lor the fair,
even if its payment is assured out or the
first gate receipts. A prominent Re
publican paper of Boston insists that in
quiry shall first be made if the pledges
made for Chicago have all been kept ac
curately. That is carrying the matter
too far. When New York talked of
fifteen millions and has an unbuilt
Gijaxt monument, Chicago may be ex
cused for speaking of twenty-five mill
ions as within its reach. It has done
well in putting toward twelve millions
in sight, and if its contributors are will
ing to givu the first receipts for the re
payment of a government loan it would
be churlish to refuse this aid. The rep
utation of the government and nation
is largely involved in the matter.
One of the late devices in insurance
is to make a railroad good for all losses
by accident, including claims for pas
sengers killed or injured. The insur
ance company watches the track and
meets all legal expenses. The Long
Island road is credited with investing
in this sort of policy. Whether this
method will make travel on that road
more secure may be told later.
By a recent judicial decision in Paris
a lease of a dwelling was invalidated
by the production of a bedbug found in
it. The court held that the presence of
the insect prevented peaceable enjoy
ment and occupation of the leased
premises. It is rumored that several
boarding houses in this locality might
save rent by a decision of that sort.
It is concluded in Boston that, after
all, the electric system of street railways
is about as safe as any they know of.
That seems to be the fact in other cities
as its methods are better understood.
It is not, perhaps, the ideal system, but
it is to have the right of way uutil some
thing better comes in.

"The City Directory" proDably excels auy

it is a pleasure to see it; not like so many
other farce comedies, an affliction. Willis P.

Julius P. Witmark is excellent. Bessie Cleve

Col. Biliy Welles, the urbane manager of
the Olympic theater, feels no husitation in
commending in the highest words of praise
the company that is appearing nightly at
this pretty little Vaudeville theater. The
caption, it must be confessed, initiates some
what agnin.st the play. It is entitled "Jack
the Kipper," but it isn't, as a matter of fact,
half as horrible hs the name indicates. It is
a melodrama of merit, and the characters arc
drawn from life. It so happened that Harry
Montague, the author, was in London during
the reign of terror, when this sanguinary
mystery visited the Whitechapel district with
shockiug butchery, aud Mr. Montague, in
stiiiL-tively led by a curiosity to study human
nature, depraved as well as Dolite, spent
some time among the associates of Jack the
Kipper. He saw so many anomalous char
acters, and was so deeply impressed by their
peculiarities that he wro c the play. Of
course nomenclature always cuts a figure,
but he could not very well choose a different
title, and he is staging it as it is. The play is
in two acts with fourteen scenes, and it is
well put on this week at the Olympic.

ODDS AND ENDS.
If it were not .for the various street railway
lines the general public would not feel the
need of a city fool-killer half so much. A
casual ride about town on a street car in
variably developes more kinds of foolishness
in one's fellow passengers than two weeks
anywhere else. On the iuterurban line there
are signs conspicuously posted in the mid
way districts, "Electric cars stop here," or
words to that effect. Yet every day when a
car Is whizzing and rocking along some one
will make a frantic endeavor to stop that car

Aid. Bott is constitutionally opposed to
granting promiscuous franchises to occupy
the street of the city without remuneration.
The time was when St. Paul was very glad
for any enterprising concern to cocie here
and make improvements for the convenience
of the general public, but the city has now
grown to an importance and magnitude
when franchise grants worth fortunes need
not be thrown away. The alderman feels
that, when a company makes application for
these privileges, they should recompense the
city. They should pay a dividend upon their
year's earnings, the same as railroad com
panies, or else loose the rights at a stated
sum. Aid. Sullivan is impressed with a like
feeling of equity.

for the catastrophe, and it is, that the Min

A MISTAKEN IDENTITY.
At last an author has taken pity on the un
appreciated people of the race and has dedi
cated a book "'•to those hustling men who do
more toward running the world than all the
soldiers and statesmen of the universe, the
much-abused newspaper reporters. The
title of the book is 'A Mistaken Identity,"
and the author, Oscar F. G. Day, of Minne
•apolis., is well fitted to sympathize with news
: paper men. for he is one of them himself."
' The story is a tale of love and war. The
war is the War of the Revolution, and the
love is the same old brand that has obtained
since Adam fell in love with Eve at first;
sight. It borders on the erotic occasionally,
but, as a whole, the love story— stories—
for. as the author's preface naively says,
"the pages are filled with love"— ls very
prettily told. The , characters are very clev
erly drawn, notably those of Jessnline Eloise
and .voung Percy. The treatment of the war
Incidents is slightly of the style of Fenimore
Cooper. Irish, British, Colonial and negro
characteristics are strongly depicted, al
though the language of some of the charac
ters is at times so modern one might accuse
the author of anachronism. The interest
throughout is well sustained, and the plot is
in itself highly dramatic. Mr. Day's first
book promises well for his literary future.
Wood Instead of Iron.
Washington, Sept. 11.— The super

department has completed the modified
plans' and accompanying specifications
for the government building at the.
world's Columbian exposition, and they
will be sent to-morrow to the firms who
submitted bids 'on the original plans
and to other persons. The iu'vv plans
do not involve any reduction in the size
of the building originally proposed, but
in the main provides for the use of
wood in portions of the building where
it was intended to use iron, and where
the former will answer the purpose in
many respects as satisfactorily as the ■

F. K. Lane, proprietor of the Tacoma
Evening News, arrived in St. Paul last even
ing, ou his way back to his old home In New
York, aud is now at the Merchants'. Mr.
Lane is a wide-awake, active man, with a
large experience iv newsptper work, gained
o» the (Xew York Herald previous to embark
ing iv ihe Tacoma field. The News is the
only evening paper iv Tacoma, and, bavins
gathered in all the news franchises. Mr.
Lave feels tolerably sure of his grip aud is
branching out and making one of th.3 best
evening journals on the coast. He is a
Democrat of the sturdiest brand and his
paper echoes his opinions and views in poli
tics. He will be on hand this morning to
aid in welcoming the distinguished coterie
of Democrats that will reach here ou their
way to Washington, and this evening will
resume his journey eastward.
"The Democrats of Washington." said Mr.
Lane last evening, "are well organized and
thoroughly in earnest iv their effort to re
deem the state. They will elect a congress
man next yeai, aud the chances are also
largely in favor of their capturing the legis
lature, aud, thereby, a Tinted States senator
ship. Aud, by the way, In case they do se
cure the legislature. Col. Chauncy W. Griggs,
of Taeoma, a former resident of your city, is
certain to be a prominent and strong candi
date for United States senator. To show you
how the party is growing. I need only allude
to '.he fact that iv the legislature of two years
ago there was but one Democrat, Seuator
Drum, of Tacoma, while in the last leg
islature there were twenty-one Democrats,
with about twenty districts in which Demo
crats were defeated by less thau fifty votes."
"How is business on the coast?"
"Well, it has been rather dull with us, as,
indeed, it has beeu all over; but things are
now brightening up, aud a great revival is
almost at hand. Eighty shiploads of- wheat
will go out of Tacoma just as fast as the boats
can perform the work. Whtu this number is
compared with five, the number that have
been chartered for Seattle, it looks as though
Tacoma was in it, does it not?"
If Seattle is made the Great Northern coast
terminus, the situation will be slightly al
tered, will it not?" a=keil the Globk repre
"The Great Northern is not going to make
Se:utle its coast terminus," answered Mr.
Lane. "In my opinion they will make a ship
ping poiut of some small place, and distrib
ute business to Tacoma, Seattle and other
cities, in which case neither Tacoma nor Se
attle would have any advantage the one
over the other."
Hon. J. C. Flyun, th« Little Falls lumber
man, is inclined to regard the various "Hold
Your Wheat" circulars that have been sent
out from this city as the work of tha "bulls,"
who take advantage ot the temporary rise in
the price of the grain to sell. Turning to a
paper he had in his hands last evening, lie
said : "What market can stand a report like
this?" and he read the statement that the
wheat receipts for two days at Duluth
amounted to 1,100 cars. "-It takes a vast
amount of money," lie continued, "to meet
such shipments, as well as great storage fa
cilities. This grain cannot be rushed to
Europe at once; there are not boats enough
if there is the demand. Aud the receipts at
Duluth are ouly a sample of what they are at
Chicago. Minneapolis uud other termiual
'•Then it is your opinion that the price of
wheat will not go up at the piesent time?"
"I do not see how it can. Au enormous
corn crop is coming oil the heels of this
wheat crop, and the granaries of the West
ern states will not hold both. Another thing,
the i lom ami for this crop does not come all

features of the Fair. In speaking of the Fair,
Mr. Furlong said: "The Fair has been an
immense success, and I think we may safely
say that it was the best In the history of the.
state. The weather was favorable, the ex
hibits first-class and large, while the people
of the state seemed to take an interest in it

STORMY TIME FOR SEALERS.
They Are Fired on and Several
Victoria, B. C, Sept. 14.— The San
Francisco schooner City of San Diego
reached here with 000 sealskins Satur
day night from Copper island, on the
Russian side of Behriog sea. Its com
mander reports an eventful trip. It
was warned off St. Paul island the end
of June, and it made lor Copper island.
There it fell in with eight other schoon
ers, and all of them together raided
the island, catchiug and skinning seals.
Over forty boats landed from the
schooners and eotolf safely. The follow
intr day,Aug.2,they went ashore attain in
company with twenty-five boats from
other schooners and again started raid
ing. A thick fojj; covered their opera
tions, when a volley of about forty rilles
shots raug out above them and all made
for the boats, leaving hundreds of dead
seals on the beach. ILight boats wen;
struck. A black hunter named Talbot.
from the schooner Webste , jumped
from the bow in fright and was
drowned, iluuier Vairn, from the An
nie, was shot dead before he left the
beach. All the boats got aboard the
schooners safely and lay out live miles
from shore, considerably scattered. Atu
o'clock the same evening, a Kussian
war siiip made for them; Capt. McLean,
of the Hamilton Lewis, with the object
of giving the other schooners time to
get away, ran straight for and dodged
the vessel. It was two hours before the
jCussian-i got him, and by that time lite
other vessels had got away. The Ham
ilton Lewis was towed to the island. All
the hunters on the San Diego express
grave fears as to the probable fate of
the crew, as they say that several shots
were fired at the Russians hi the skir
mish that morning and probably some
soldiers weie killed. The Aita reports
that the Oscar and Hattie was chased
in Behring sea by the Mohican for
twenty hours for the purpose of warn
ing it off. It got away and then made
back for Behring sea. Three men —
Walters, Anderson and Grey— died of
sickness on the San Diego on the voy
age up and were buried at sea.
AIDED BY A WOMAN.
Awful Duel of Negroes Near Ven
St. Louis. Sept. 14.— The particulars
of a horrible and bloody duel, which
took place yesterday near Venice, 111.,
on the east side of the river, reached
here this morning. Two negroes, Grant
Wood and Dick Oliver, were returning
from a dance, aad quarreled about a
woman, and both agreed to light it out
with knives. They slashed at each oth
er's neck, head, face and body with fear
ful rapidity, while making the air
livid with oaths. While tho stiug
irle was fiercest, a negress struck
Oliver on the head with a club, felling
him to the ground. While Oliver was
prostrate, Wood drew a pistol and shot
him in the hip. Despite his terrible
wounds, and with the blood running
down his body in streams and staining
the sandbar a bright crimson, Oliver got
up and the desperate men renewed the
battle. In this encounter Wood was
cut in the left breast, the knife pene
trating the apex of the heart. He fell
and expired in a few minutes. While
Oliver's wounds are serious, he will
probably recover. He and the woman
are under arrest.
