Bi.kthkn than to imagine that he would want to be mayor of Minneapolis. Why In tin 1 name of common sense anybody should want to be mayor of any place, passes the Globe's understanding. For a man of Mr. Bi-ktiien's disposition such posts are especially dangerous. It : would be absolutely impossible for him, were he mayor, to please every one as Le has always heretofore done in what " ever he has tried, lie would be sure to mak 1 several enemies during his term of office, and like as not two or three . people who now love him would pass "him by on the street without a word of recognition because he had out of a sense of duty interfered with some of their pet schemes. This would make him very unhappy. It is all very well to be powerful, Mr. Blktiiex, but it is better to be loved. Still, if Mr. Bi.ETin-::* insists on being mayor of Minneapolis in spite of the risks he is running, there is probably nothing to be done- but to let him. He would make a charming mayor. He would shine equally well in the social and .the business duties of the office. He has a breezy way in society. ' No man can slide up to a young woman at a reception and say, "Hello, old girl, are you still going to parties?" in better style than Mr. Blkthkx. He is equally tactful with men. lie always says the right tiring at the right time.andsaysitso that every one feels comfortable. There is nothing slow about him, either. If Minneapolis wants to revive its boom without delay, let it elect Mr. Blktiiex mayor by a rising vote, providing, of course, no Democrat will take the office. , FOlt BKTIKIt ROADS. A convention of lowa farmers will be held during the present, month for the purpose of devising means by which the improvement of the state's public roads can be secured. This is an im portant subject, and the Globe would be glad to see the farmers of Minnesota also take it up in earnest. The plat forms of both the Democratic and Repub lican parties express their interest in a movement in this direction, but the state executive officers to be elected in the fall will not be able to do much for this cause except in the way of recom mendation to the legislature. Any real work will have to be achieved by it or by the individual counties. If the mat ter is agitated in the country papers and by the fanners themselves at general or at local gatherings, its importance will be impressed on our senators and representatives, and they will give it the attention it deserves. If this is not done we shall have the ex periences of the past repeated. We shall see men coining to St. Paul next winter professing to be enthusiastically .devoted to the welfare of their agricult ural constituents, and yet wasting an entire session without the passage of a single measure which counts for their advantage. They will introduce impos sible bills for the regulation of rail roads, a branch of business with which they have no acquaintance, and debate for weeks over a usury law which, while designed to lower, would really in crease the price of money; but it will never occur to them to wrestle with the problem of mud. A single intelligent law by which the means of communica tion between farm and town may be economically and permanently im proved would give a legislature a claim on popular gratitude such as it would never win by volumes of clap-trap talk such as our legislative demagogues de light to indulge in. We need better roads all over Minnesota, by which bus iness may be facilitated and life made more comfortable. Let every method be taken advantage of to impress this fact on our public men. .A UNIQUE FUSION SUGGESTION The most novel fusion proposition yet advanced in Minnesota is that which contemplates a fusion of Democrats and Republicans against the Populists in W adena county. The scheme is seri ously and earnestly advocated by the Wadena County Pioneer, the leading Republican organ. There are seven county officers to be elected, and the Pioneer thinks "the Democrats would be satisfied with two." On this division of the spoils it urges fusion, ingenuously asking: "By what other arrangement could five .Republicans be elected so easily?" . If Wadena county Democrats are of Che right metal, ainio.st any other method Kill be easier than the one whexel>v "••«: artless Wadena county contemporary proposes to elect its five Republicans. In many respects the principles of the Democratic and People's parties har monize, but in scarcely a single paiticu lar do the principles and purposes of the Democracy agree with the avowed tenets of the Republican party. Fusion between Democrats and Populists is in many cases natural and commendable because of an identity of principles — the two parties being in practical agree ment, for instance, on the tariff and force bill issues. But fusion between Democrats and Republicans, even in local elections, would be as grotesque and incongruous SUM the mating of tish and fowl, or any other anomaly in nature. It would be utterly indefensi ble—a shameful surrendering of princi ples for spoils. Wadena Democrats should dismiss with the scorn it de serves the suggestion that they fuse with their arch-enemies, even on the magnificent basis of receiving two offices out of seven. SKLKCT GOOD MEN. An election is approaching for mem bers of the legislature and county offi cers. While it is important to every citizen of the county that the offices be filled by only thoroughly competent and honest men, of tiie more than 30,000 voters in Ramsey county not 2,000 of them care a fig what particular persons fill the offices. Not one-twentieth of the voters are offieeseekers, or have any interest in who fill the offices so long as they are well, faithfully and honestly filled. The Globk desires to emphasize the above fact, and it desires to emphasize this further fact, that the people of Ramsey county will demand that only good men— men of approved honesty and capacity— be placed in nomination for the .respective official positions. It will be useless to nominate un worthy candidates this fall; it will be labor-in-vain to pack caucuses for the nomination of such characters. The people will not elect them, and the Globk will join the people in rejecting them. Ramsey county can be carried for the Democratic ticket, from Cleveland down to the most humble position. But it cannot be done with a ticket that does not Dossess the unqualified confidence of the people of the city. The ticket must be composed of clean men of sound judgment. It must be equally strong in all its parts. Those Democrats who are seeking nominations on the theory that a nom ination is equivalent to an election, re gardless of the character of the nom inees, mike a grave mistake. A bad nomination will be equivalent to defeat. More than 10 per cent of the voters of this county are unattached to any party for thick-and-thin support. This class are neither officeseekers nor are they interested in the emoluments of office. But they will determine at the ballot box who shall fill the offices for the next two years. LITTLE TOMMY WATSON. "Little Tommy" Watsox. as the Al liance member from Georgia is - affec tionately called at home, has given an account of his stewardship in a public speech to his constituents. His effort was divided into two parts. The first consisted of a rehearsal of his own great achievements ou the floor of congress. The second was a scathing arraignment of the Democratic majority in the lower house for its legislative shortcomings. If his own story is to be believed, he . did many important services for his own district and the country at large, and attempted to do many. more. Those which he succeeded in accomplishing were as follows: He got a runaway boy who had enlisted in the army released and restored to his father and mother; he distributed two thousand packages of garden seed so skillfully that almost every one of the 105,000 people in his district got a package; he mailed copies of the Congressional Record containiug his speeches to both his white and black constituents. It is unnecessary to say that his recital of these valuable deeds was received by his hearers with mani festations of. deep enthusiasm." This was especially. true of his references to the copies of the Congressional Record. The wives of the negro voters in his district had been very grateful for the receipt of these because they found them useful as curl papers when doing up their hair before retiring, and when he mentioned them they cheered loudly. The things he had tried, but had failed in. were as follows: He had introduced a bill repealing the national bank act instanter, but this had not passed; he had introduced a bill providing for the expenditure of the §100,000,000 of gold which is kept as a reserve for the redemption of our paper currency, but this also had not passed; he had introduced a bill putting into effect the subtreasury scheme ad vocated by the Alliance party, but this also had not passed. .His criticisms of the Democratic house were based on its failure to enact these three measures, to provide for the free coinage of silver, to carry its tariff reform laws through the Republican senate, and on the joy some of its members got out of the con sumption of whisky. "Tommy" spoke for two hours on these themes. Then he collapsed physically and had to be' carried from the platform. The Globe does not know what the verdict of the people of Georgia may be, but in a com munity of normal sanity it would seem that after listening to such stuff an over whelming majority would vote for a drunken congressman if Tommy Wat son- is a fair specimen of the effects of sobriety. ■ m Kot long ago the suggestion that Illinois was debatable ground would have been hoot ed down in derision. Today the Republican nominee for governor of Illinois asserts that "Illinois will be the battle ground in this campaign." What is true of Illinois is true also of Wisconsin, Minnesota and the entire Northwest. The Northwest is the battle ground, an the odds are not against the Democracy. ■ -<^h>- . Everybody is congratulating .Joel Heat wole on the splendid uuanlmity of his nomi nation for congress in the Third district. It is recognized that his defeat will likewise be ■ practically unanimous, but that doesn't mar the vivid splendor of the present moment.

No man has ever been nominated for gov ernor of Minnesota by any party who had the universal esteem of all parties which is ac corded to D. W. — Dodge County Record fDem.) Daniel W. Lawler, of St. Paul, was selected by the Democrats to head their ticket as a candidate for governor. He has the reputa tion of being a brilliant and talented man, and it is conceded that the nomination is far superior to . the average selections made by the Democracy. — Wells Advocate (Rep.) The people who vote for Mr. Lawler will make no mistake. As governor of this state he will administer the duties of the office henestly and courageously, and, as he said, he will be no man's candidate. He will be controlled and guided Dy only one purpose, and that his duty to the people. Mr. Lawler will wage a campaign of issues and in the in terests of the people; lie is not owned by railway corporations or by any few men.— St. Peter Herald (Dem.) The head of the ticket. Daniel W. Lawler, is one of the brightest young attorneys of St. Paul, and will draw to his standard the young Democracy of the Twin Cities, but he cannot hope to get the suffrage of the masses. —Polk County Journal (Rep.) The Democratic party will go into the cam paign feeling that it has a splendid chance of success. If the vote in 1593 is anything of a measure of the situation in the state today, the Democratic ticket will be elected. It is not a forlorn hope that Dan Lawler is lead ing, but it is a victorious party that he heads, and we expect to see him our next chief ex ecutive— Le Sueur Sentinel (Dem.) Dan Lawler is a nice young man, and may be a good lawyer, but he'll never be governor. Mark that down.— Sibley County Enterprise (Rep.) Daniel W. Lawle, the nominee for governor on the Democratic ticket, is a thorough rep resentative of the young Democracy, ngres sive and progressive, and a typical American I in every respect. He is a man of superior ability, and as an orator has but few equals in the Northwest The nomination came to him unsought, and the fact that he received il unanimously is sufficient evidence of his popularity with the entire Democracy of the state.— Waverly Tribune ( Dem.) ' Daniel W. Lawler. of St. Paul, the Demo cratic nominee for governor, is a very enter prising and popular young man, besides be ing an eloquent and gifted speaker. It is true that he has not had much experience in the affairs of state, and in this fact lies his weakest point. He will find it hard sledm? to oppose a man of Mr. Nelson's ability and experience in public matters, but still he will conduct an enthusiastic campaign, and will endear himself to the younger element of the party.— Wadeua Pioneer (Rep.) ' Mr. Lawler is a man of fine presence. His herculean frame is the counterpart of his active and powerful mind. His literary en tertainments are of a high order, the result of native ability and years of arduous toil. As an orator he has few peers, if any. in the Northwest. He is a born leader, bold and aggressive. He ..is a paragon . j for young Americans. His dash and pluck and energy are racy of the West. He possesses one other grand qualification : for an official, the highest and most essential in these latter days, immaculate honesty. — Faribault Pilot. In Dan W. Lawler Mr. Nelson has a foe man worthy of his steel. In oratory he is far superior to Nelson and the peer of Don nelly. He has the vigor of youth, the skill of a distinguished lawyer and the eloquence of a Cicero. • He is the nominee of the Demo cratic party, and will do valiant battle for the men who have placed their trust in him. If nationalism and government patronage could be expunged from the contest and the case be fought on its merits, we have no doubt but Mr. Lawler would be our next governor — Morris Sun (Ind.). The state Democracy nominated as a can , didate for governor Hon. D. W. Lawler, a ■ young St. Paul lawyer of brilliant qualities and good character. i This is something of a new departure on the port of the Minnesota Democrats, * .* * Lawler will rally the young men to his standard and the campaign will be something more than a mere Derfunc tory one. We congratulate the Democracy on having made a good selection in their candidate for governor. . It is a healthy sign when good representative men are brought to the front by political — Sherbume County Star-News (Ind.) In his speech before the Democratic state convention, Daniel W. Lawler, the nominee for governor, made the . following very com : mendable platform : "I shall be no man's man, and wear no man's collar." No better plank was ever inserted in a platform and no better man was ever nominated for governor of this or any other state — Jordan Independ ent (Ind.) .'•'_' - Just Like the Other Daniel. Dodd County Record. The Democrats of Minnesota must now look to the youthful Daniel as their prophet while the Republicans get the lions' den ready for him.— Pioneer Press. "A little learning is a dangerous thing." Had the wise editor of the P. P. possessed a little more Biblical knowledge he would never have penned or published the fore going. That lions' den allusion is a good one, and our Daniel will come out as victori ous as his maligned, but virtuous namesake. Heroic Explanation. New York* World. The Minneapolis Tribune has been disturbed greatly by the comment cre ated Ly the nomination of a tariff re former as the Republican candidate for governor, and hastens to explain. To be sure, it says, Mr. Nelson voted for the Mills bill, but "since Mr. Nelson has retiied lrom congress the Repub lican party has achieved measures of tariff reform more radical than ever were entertained by him. * • • Hon. Knute Nelson ' has been out-Nelsoned by the McKiuley bill." Whatever else may be said of this explanation, nobody an deny that it i s heroic. Brilliant Scene in Sank Center. Sauk Center Avalanche. Worth or Redfern might have re ceived some valuable pointers from the crowd assembled at the fire Thursday night. As to the matter of decollete costumes and full evening dress, it was probably the most uitra-fasbionable as sembly ever called together in Sauk Center. The variety of attire was ex ceeded by nothing save its scantiness, and reflecting the lurid light of the fire produced a startling effect upon the be holder, who might .well imagine him self In the midst of a South Sea Island picnic. - _:;_ ■■ -vrir : -';^: *:. ■'.

This is hard luck, Indeed, for when heaven and earth combine atrainst a politician the odds seem to be clearly against him. ' THIRD PARTY IN THE SOUTH. A vote for the third party is a vote for the greatest era of extravaeance this country has ever known, for" it means the purchase of the railroads at a price that would burden the poor of this countiy for years to come. Taxation would be higher than ever before known.— Asheville (N. C.) Citizen. As an illustration of third party con fidence Gen. Weaver is reported to have said the other day that his ticket would' certainly win in Virginia. If (i^n- Weaver means that the third party may enable the Republicans to elect their ticket in Virginia, and he calis that winning for his pnrty, he may possibly be right.— Norfolk Landmark. The farmers will suffer just in propor tion, as the Republican leaders can use the movement for the purpose of band ing the negroes together for another effort to control the state governments. Once let the hope of supremacy fasten itself upon the negro mind, and the condition of labor in the South will be worse than it has ever been before.— Richmond Dispatch. All prominent People's party men who have spoken our. on the subject have said tlu-y would much rather see Clevelaud elected than Harrison, and we are greatly mistaken if prominent Democrats, presented with a similar al ternative as between Candidate Har rison and Candidate Weaver, were not to pronounce in favor of the latter.— New Orleans Globe-Demcorat. It is not provokinsr only, it is most distressing, that when every indication points to a sweeping Democratic victory in the whole country the chances of success should be darkened by the caurseof a set of perverse white men In Virginia. North Carolina and South Car olina. We candidly believe that the third party leaders are men who have selfish views before them. We believe them to be office seekers only, and to such appeals of whatever sort are. of course, made in vain.— Richmond Times. BLEEDING KANSAS. The destruction of three and a half acres of wheat by chinch bugs in Kan sas tiiis year will not do the calamity ticket very much good, and yet it may do some. Every little helps.— Kansas City Journal. The state librarian of Kansas is a poet. Here is one of his latest: Mary had a little mouth, Aud .Mrs. Digjjs also— And every plaoe that either went, Her mouth was sure to go. An Alliance paper in Kansas prints this: Charley ticott is as cold as "chis eled marble." A hurried search through the archives of history, from Genesis to the current number of the Congres sional Record, fails to bring to light any other red-headed man who is called cold. Kansas leads. Perhaps, however, there is a difference in the temperature of "chiseled marble" and just ordinary marble marble, and it may turn out that Mr. Scott is not cold after all. Haupy Hollow, Kan., is engaged in a heated argument at present which threatens to cud in a fight. The weeds have grown up so high that the houses cannot be seen, and a portion of the brethren have proposed to cut the weeds down. The other brethren ob ject, saying the Lord has aiiowed the weeds to crow up and the people have no right to cut them down without ask ing God. Uncle Johnson had asked God, they said, and he shook his head, and said the weeds were to keep the brethren from the sights of the sinful world. All the brethren are mad and get out by the church and pray for each other so loud that everybody in the neighborhood can hear their prayers.— Atchison Globe. Bruce Lynch, the Republican can didate for state treasurer, still holds his job on the Southern Kansas. He can not afford to take a lay-off to make a canvass, and when he is billed for a meeting at a town he "trades runs" with some engineer who makes that point and makes the trip. He is a good speaker and makes friends easily. He says that the most affecting thing that ever happened in his life was when he returned to his home and was met by a band of carriages. His little daughter, who didn't understand what it was all about, climbed into the carriage with him and told him that her mother had sent her down for 10 cents worth of eggs and that she wanted the money.—South ern Kansas. ■ MEN AND WOMEN. Mme. Modjeska intends soon to take up her residence in Chicago, where her son, Ralph Modjeska, expects to prac tice his profession. William T.

Miss Mary Aucusta Scott has just been elected a Fellow ot Yale Univer sity, the first woman to receive this dis tiuction. Miss Scott is a graduate and M. A. of Vassar college, has studied at Johns Hopkins', and was a student in honors at the University of Cambridge, England. There has been a curious dispute among the biographers regarding the age of Grover Cleveland. By some of Hie campaign historians he is said to be fifty-seven years old, while others make him fully five years younger. Mr. Cleveland himself, in answer to numer ous inquiries, is reported to have given his age as fifty-five. He was born at Caldwell, Essex county, N. J. The late Father Mollinger was a man of great wealth, and his home on Mount Troy was a veritable treasure house.

WHY THEY SQUIRM. Design of the Fusion Yarns That Are Being 1 Sprung- With Regularity. The Independent Voters of the State and the Party They Came From. Donnelly Slyly Insinuates That He Is Still in the Race for Governor. Fourth District Republicans Will Meet at Lindstrom September 3. Much as the Republican organs, or rather some of them, would like to see the two wings of the grand old party, headed by Knute Nelson amd Ignatius Donnelly respectively, united, they do not seem to be making much headway. For nearly a week past the official morning organ of the party in St. Paul has been filling its columns with absurd stories regarding probable, dickers and deals between tiie Democracy and the People's party. No one paid any atten tion to these yarns, because their design was so evident to every one that they were simply making the paper which printed them ridiculous. At the present time the Republican leaders are confronted with a grave condition of affairs, not even the hand some state chairman, "Bob" Jamison, or the industrious secretary. Tains Bix by, being at all enthusiastic at the sit uation. The results of the election ot two years ago demonstrated conclu sively that the Republican party in this state is split into two factions, one of which still sails under the old party name and the other of which "was two years ago called the Alliance.and in this campaieu is known as the People's party. Of course of the leaders of the machiue who are working for the election of Knute Nelson are very anxious to get back v good part of the vote that went to S. M. Owen two years ago, and all this fusion talk had for its object the bringing back of those who kicked over ihe traces two years ago. The Globk has all along been aware that there was nothing in the rumors as to the withdrawal of this or that candi date on the People's party ticket, but did not deem it necessary or worth the trouble of saying so. The Democracy of Minnesota has nominated a splendid state ticket which it proposes to elect, and it will allow the Donnelly Republi cans aud the Nelson Republicans to fight out their own battles. If there are any who doubt these statements as to the make-up of the People's party it is only necessary to refer them to the court records of Hen nepin county, where Mr. Donnelly took oath that he never voted a Democratic ticket in his life, and to the election re turns of two years ago. Iv 18S8 the people of Minnesota voted as follows: Harrison 1«.4'J2 Fistc 15,311 Cleveland 104.355 Total vote 26J,l!vS Two years ago in the state election the vote was as follows: Merriam 63,111 Wilson S.\BU Total vote. 240,89 Owen 58.513 Decrease IS9O. 21,206 Piukham. 8,4.'4 It is fair to assume that this decrease affected each party in about the same proportion. In the, heavy Republican counties the majority party probably lost more tnan its proper ratio, and in the heavy Democratic counties the same thing was shown. To show that the latter is ' true, the reliable old Demo cratic county of Steams will be taken as an example. In 1888 Cleveland re ceived 4,747 voles there, while two years a«o Judge Wilson. ,, was given but 3,915, although he v had... ; about - the same majority as Mr. Cleveland. In Brown Cleveland had 1,459, and Judge Wilson 1.177. These examples might be multiplied to any extent, but it is not necessary. A comparison of the election returns of 1883 and 1890 in this state proves conclusively that the voters who failed to exercise their franchise in 181 X) came in about equal proportions* from - the Democratic and Republican parties. This being the case, a fair division of those 22,000 miss ing votes would be about as follows: 12,000 Republican and 10,000 Demo cratic, wsb Deducting 10,000 votes from Mr. Cleveland's vote of ISSS and it leaves just94,:>Ss Democrats who voted in the fall election of 1890. Judge Wilson re ceived 55,544 votcs,which number taken from the total number of Democrats who voted leaves 8,541 Democrats who went with the old Alliance party who voted for Mr. Owen. But how different was it with the Re publican party, which gave President Harrison a plurality of over 38.000 lour years ago: President Harrison's vote in 1838 was 142,492. Take from this the 12,000 stay at-home Republicans and there are left 130,492 men who voted the Republican ticket in 1888, of which, only 88.111 cast their ballots for Gov. Merriam in 1890. The other 42,381 went to S. M. Owen, the Alliance candidate. Is it any wonder that the Republican organs and leaders are desperate and are ready to do almost anything in the hope that some of these 42,000 votes may be won back to the party? SAGE STILIi IN IT. The People's Party Candidate De- Clares That He Is Still on Earth. The Sage of Niniuger, who has been rusticating at his country home in Da kota county for nearly a month past, is neither sick, dead, nor dying, and in a very humorous letter, "which will be found below, he serves notice that he will be heard from in the near future. Of course this letter will spoil many columns of "hot stuff" on fusion which is stored up in several newspaper of fices, but the Sage evidently did not care much for that. The letter follows: To the Editor of the Globe. • Will you be kind enough to give me suffi cient space in which to deny certain enter taining fabrications of ihe public press con cerning myself? For a time I was simply -.amused by these inventions, but I find them repeated broadcast until they are obtaining general credence, and are annoying and distressing my friends: One newspaper, tbe other day. casually re marked—discussing the probabilities of the campaign— that I might resign my nomina tion for governor, and retire to my farm Anotner kindly suzgested that if I had any ,desire to withdraw. I could get my physician . to order me to do so on account of my health In tne hands of a third artist this grew into a statement th*t I was actually about to Rive up the eot^est, A fourth repeated this with a supplement— thai my doctor had ordered roe to resign. a fifth explained' that my sickness was due to overwork. And then a Dakota paper kindly remarked that I had been paid a handsome sum to get sick and withdraw. And thereupon a whole con course of state papers has Riven it out that I am very sick, and absolutely out of the field and that the People's party ticket has gone to pieces. You remember. Mr. Editor, the old story of the man who was said to have swallowed something "as black as a crow;" and the re port grew, by successive stages, until it ap peared that the unfertnnate individual had swallowed three black crows— alive at that: Really, if these inventive and romantic gen tlemen of the press are not stopped in their creative career. I shall expect to re.ad. in a few days, a full account of my last sickness and death, and all the details at my funeral together with the glowing obituary notices wi:h which the de!i"2h!ed newspapers will consign me to my lav. resting place. - And so I push, aside the marble slab of my "tnmo ami stick my bead oat long .enough to protest (however much •it ni-iy disappoint the world).- that I .-i.-a not sfes or (Tying or 'dead; ; that 1 have as i h;.> - :ciaiL,"anil cannot recollect ' that I ever Im<i . one: that I never was in better he::ii!i in my life: tiint I have not thought for one iusi4i:t:»tf ; withdrawing from the content for the gubernatorial chair;, that on Monday uext 1 Ij?/iu a series of sev- I enty-rive speeches. i:i IL psu-.sof ill? state: I and that I prjpo-e to make the coming earn l>iiiif!i t!it> liveliest ever, seen: in Jlnrnesot-i.l It my excellent friends, Hou.

Macdoiiald has not withdrawn for the benefit of Mr. Netheby. lion Kittel Halvorsen has not resigned the nomination for lieutenant governor. ; It is true that three of our candidates on. the electoral ticket, for good and sufficient reasons, have withdrawn, but their places will soon be tilled. We are advancing to certain triumph. The wiping out of the 07,000 majority given to Cleveland in Alabama, four year* ago, and the carrying of that state for the People's party ticket by 30,000 majority, is sufficient evidence that the whole line of Southern states will co down, in November next, like a row of bricks; while the Republicans west or the Mississippi will scarcely have enough, shreds or popular support left to cover their iiakeduess. as they stand shivering before the bar ot public opinion. ' No; Mr. Editor, this is not the time for the People s pariy of Minnesota to disrupt, dis solve or absquatulate. Yours, in excellent health, Ignatius Donnelly. . KAMSEY WIMj DICTATE. Fourth District Republicans to Meet at Lindstrom Sept. 3. The Republican congressional con vention lor this district will be held at Lindstrom in Chisago county Saturday, Sept. 3. This was decided at a meeting of the congressional committee held at the Windsor hotel yesterday morning. The apportionment was not made on , basis of the call for the state convention, : which would have given the four out side counties a show in the convention, enabling them- in case of a fierce fac tional contest in Ramsey county to name a man free from entanglements. : On the contrary, the representation was fixed at three delegates at large for each county and one additional for each 150 votes cast for Gov. Merriam in 1890. This will make a convention qt 132 del egates, divided among the various coun ties as follows: chisago . 131 Ramsey 84 Isauti... 9 Washington 22 Kanabec 4 In the recent state convention the number of delegates eiveu each of these counties was as follows: Ramsey.: 30 Washington ..11 Chisago 8 — Isauti 7 Total 63 : Kanabec... 6 : Majority against Ramsey county, 2. The meeting was late in commencing worK, and when it did get down to busi ness only nine of the committeemen were present A majority of these nine were friends of Hon. E. H. Rogers, who desired a late convention. The friends of Col. Kiefer were headed by Hon. F. C. Stevens, who moved that the call be issued for Aug. 27. Mr. Reese amended, fixing the date for Sept. 10. This was not satisfactory to Mr. Stevens, who claimed that with the bitter contest now on a delay like tj?is would be fatal to all prospects of election. Mr. Reese pooh poohed the idea of there being any heart-burnings, and moved Sept. 3 as a substitute, which was adopted. As a matter of fact the Rogers men had no intention of working for the later date, but merely made the blutf for the pur pose of gaining more time. THE FORCE BILL. A force bill would bring b3ck sub stantially the same state of affairs as existed during trie reconstruction days; and Southern industrial development would be checked and thrown back. So a conservative and energetic repre sentative of the younger generation of successful men argues with poiut and force. — Scranton (Pa.) Times. There are very few Southern white men who do not know how absolutly important it is that the force bill should be defeated, and yet some of them are so misled by the promises of the Peo ple's party that they cannot be im pressed with the necessity for defeating it. If they will heed the wise words of Mr. Cleveland they will get back into the Democratic party much more rap idly than they left it.— Savannah News. The force bill is dangerous because it is a manifestation of Republican in tentions. The isaue behind it is the issue of race supremacy, and no white voter in Georgia should be permitted to blink this important fact. The force bill is merely one of the Republican fange which happens to be exposed to view. There are others sharper and more poisonous thatiie concealed in the Heavy jaws of the party's purpose.— Atlanta (Ga.) Constitution. A stinging charge in Mr. Cleveland's speech ie that the managers of a party which did not hesitate to steal the presi dency would not hesitate to use the force bill in carrying out their nefari ous schemes for perpetuating the power of the Republican party. Yes, we may rest assured that if in our supineness we allow the Republicans to make a law of the force bill the presi dency will never again fall into the hands of the Democratic party.—Rich mond Dispatch. CORRIGAN DIDN'T STEAL IT. The Editor of the Freeman's Journal Admits as Much. New York, Aug. 12.— Freeman's Journal and Catholic Register, which a few days ago stirred up a bitter discus sion in this city by virtually asserting that a proof of the Archbishop Ireland memorial was stolen from the Vatican printing office at the instigation of Archbishop Corrigau, of this city, will again fan the embers of interest today by an editorial distinctly dis-associating his grace from any connection with tli9 stolen copy. Editor Ford says: "I am satisfied that Archbishop Corrigan had nothing to do with the theft of the document, though 1 am satisfied that there was a theft. I have seen Arch bishop Corrigan's copyand other marks. I am satisfied that he came by it legiti mately. It was not the stolen copy." ♦ ' Fight for Minnesota. New York World. It is plain that Minnesota is good fight ing ground for the Democracy this year. A large majority of its people are with the Democratic party on the issue of tariff reform. They are chiefly farmers. They are intelligent beyond" the com mon. They see clearly the evil effects of a high tariff upon their prosperity. Nearly all of the voters opposed to Republicanism are of one mind on the real issue of the campaign, and the Re publicans themselves have shown their appreciation of the fact by nominating a pronounced ; tariff reformer for gov ernor. It only remains to unite the ma jority, by fusion or otherwise, upon a single electoral ticket, and prosecute the campaign of "education with vigor, to win this traditionally Republican but strongly tariff-reform state. To make the strongest possible effort is more than politic. It is a duty. 808 Wed Sitting Bull's Daughter. Rosdout, N. V.. Aug. 12.— A romatic wedding occurred here yesterday. The contracting parties were a daughter of Slitting Bull, the j,reat Indian warrior chief, and Peter iiarkle, formerly of the United States army.

MISS LIZZIE IN JAIL. The Alleged Slayer of Her Father and Mother Is Arraigned. Miss Borden Personally Pleads "Not Guilty" to the Charge of Murder. An Acrimonious Row Between Counsel Over the Sitting Justice. The Young 1 Woman Finally Remanded to Jail With out Bail. Pall Rivei:, Mass.. Aug. 12.— Lizzie C. Borden was arraigned in the Second district court before Judge J. C. Blais dell this morning, charged with the killing of her father and stepmother. The court room was crowded to suffoca tion. Miss Borden's friends at court were very few in number. Mr. Morse, Bridget Sullivan, Miss Emma 1-Sorden and City Missionary Buck were present. Miss Bordeu, the prisoner, was repre sented by Andrew J. Jennings. Miss Borden was dressed in a dark blue tailor-made gown and wore a black lace hat adorned with a few red berries. She looked in much bet ter condition than she was in last night just before her arrest. Miss Borden entered the court room leaning on Missionary Buck's arm. She was somewhat nervous, but did not show feeling by either tears or tremb ling. She was given a seat beside her counsel and her sister Emma, and Rev. A. F. Buck occupied a seat in front of the prisoner's dock. The Trial was commenced by the entering of a plea signed and sworn to by the pris oner, tt recited that the prisoner ob jected to the opening of a trial before a justice who was already sitting at an inquest held to determine who com niitted the crime charged against her. This plea was overruled for the time being, and the judge asked for the reading of the com plaint. The reading was waived, and Mr. Jennings said he would enter a plea of not guilty. District Attorney Knowlton, who was conducting the prosecution, insisted that Miss Burden plead herself. Augustus B. Leonard, clerk of the court, asked her to stand up. which she did firmly and without assistance. She was asked to plead to charges of homicide, and did so in a very weak voice, at first saying "Not guilty." The clerk did not hear her and she raised her voice, saying "Xot guilty." putting strons emphasis on tne first word. Mr. Jennings then began to argue for the acceptance of his plea that his client should not be examined at an inquest. The proceedings were Contrary to AH Law and justice. He, as attorney for Lizzie Borden, hart been refused permission to enter and guide his client while an in quiry was being made. It was not to be expected of human nature that the same judge could act at an inquest and n, trial and decide fairly in both cases. The proceeding was wholly unprecedented. District Attorney Knowlton entered a demurrer against the plea. lie said he knew of more than twenty cases in his career where similar proceedings were srone through with, and they failed to attract attention because the crimes were not attended by such extraordi nary circumstances as those which pre ceded this arraignment. The matters of an inquest and the matters of a trial were entirely distinct, and it was not compli mentary to his honor's judgment to say that he could not act fairly in both cases. There was hot sparring, the prisoner's counsel displaying pugna cious powers. The government's de murrer was finally sustained, and Mr. Jennings filed an exception. He moved for a trial at once. District Attorney Knowlton objected on the ground that an inquest was still going on. He Asked lor a Continuance until Monday, Aug. 22 % and it was grant ed. Mr. Morse and Bridget Sullivan were then held as witnesses in the sum of?sooeaeh. Miss Borden was asked to stand up, ana was committed with out bail. She left the court room lean ing on Mr. Buck's arm, and was closely followed by City Marshal llilliard, who again placed her In charge of Matron Russell. She will Drobably remain in charge of the local matron until a week from Monday. At that time it is ex pected that a preliminary trial will be commenced before Judge Blaisdell. The Borden safe was opened this morn ing after a Boston locksmith had been at work at it about eight hours. The contents will not be given for publica tion. They consist of a huge amouut of cash and some few papers. They were bundled and tied • with a strong cori, and, after Attorney Jenninzs and Offi csr Harringtou had affixed their signa tures on the outside, the bundle was taken to the Safe Deposit and Trust company and deposited. The guard has been taken from the neighborhood of the house, with the exception of one officer, a-nd John V. Morse is again at liberty. If Miss Borden is able to be removed she will be taken to Taunton jail. A Peculiar Hatcnet. This afternoon and evening there were the strongest rumors that the police have procured the hatchet with which the crime was committed. The police are in possession of a peculiar hatchet, and the rumor that this par ticular hatchet was used is greatly strengthened by the strong wording of City Marshal Hilliard's complaint pub lished today. Xo hatchet like the one in custody can be found in the local hardware stores. Its greatest pecul iarity is a claw on the side of the head nearest the handle. The han dle is about two and a half feef loun and the top of the head is about one and a half by four inches. It is said that the head of the hatchet fits into the murderous wounds in Mrs. Borden's head. The blade of the implement is represented as being very thin and very sharp, measuring about live and a hall' inches at the widest part, it is what is known amoug fanners as an old-fashioned thrashwood hatchet, ex cejrt- for the strange claw. A hardware mail says that such hatchets are proba uly used in laying heavy plankin<* where spikes are driven, the claw bein" used in Pollins Oat Spikes. When the police authorities were asked if such a hatchet was in their custody, they would neither admit nor deny it. The matter, with all other evi dence, is now in control of District At torney Knowlton. The condition of the hatchet with a bloody deed of some kind is almost beyond doubt, as spots of blood have been found on the blade and handle. Certain cloths covered with blow!, found in the cellar where the hatchet was found, are said to have an important bearing on this part of the ens*'. Tonight Marshal Hilliard said that there was a great deal yet to be proven before the crime could be finally fastened upon Miss Borden. Much had been learned, but for all that he could see the trial would be long and tedious. Medical Examiner Doiau says that a great deal will depend on the accuracy of the medical examination of the body and the analysis of the parts sent to Boston. Tonight affairs are more quiet in police circles than for many days. There is the report of an unsuccessful search made in the Chaee mill wood pond, which, according to the statement of a man named Ward, con tained evidences of the crime. Office rs Doherty ami Harrington found nothing suspicious there. XX TATJXTON JAIL.. Miss Borden Is Safely Behind the Bar*. Taunton, Mass., Aug. 12.— Miss Bor den entered a cell at Taunton jail at 4:25 o'clock this afternoon. Her entry iuto the city took the form of a public ceremony. Arriving at the central pas senger station, Miss Borden was con ducted to a curtained hack by Minister Buck and City Marshall Hilliard, De tective beaver acting as guard and clearing the way. The only sign of in terest she manifested was when Tauu ton was reached, when she aroused from her lethargy, for a second, then dropped her head on her hand and closed her eyes. Arriving at the jail she was at once placed in a cell, the minister conducting her to the door, and .Marshal Hilliard seeing that the door was properly secured. Mrs. Wright, wife of Sheriff Wrfgttt, an old friend of the Borden family, hurried to the cell with a glass of water, which the pris oner eagerly drank. When Miss Burden entered the jail her manner was com posed, and there was no sign of nerv ousness given. She passed towards the corridors, apparently seeing nothing and noticing nobody. The sheriff stood by the inner dcor. and he was affected almost to tears as he saw the daughter of his old friend pass into the apart meuts usually occupied by the most degraded females. Minister Buck emerged from the cell room white and asritated, and not disposed to talk. ONE OF THKM PEACHED. Two Brothers and a Cook Murder a Crew. Sax Frakcisco, Cal., Aug. 12.— The brig Galilee arrived today from Tahiti and the Marquesas islands, bringing particulars of tiie murder of the crew of old King Pomere's former yacht Niua loati. and the subsequent capture of the murderers. After King Poniere, of 'lahiti, died his yacht was sold and was loaded for a trading voyage among the South sea islands. Capt. Castella was in command. The mate was a man named Koedique. The super cargo was Willie Gibson. The vessel's cook and the remaining four of the crew were Kankakes. At Kingswell islands Koodique's brother was taken aboard, and the brothers formed a plot to seize the vessel. The cook was in duced to put poison in the food of the crew, thus disposing of them. Capt. CaslPlla and Supercargo (iibson were sitting in the cabin eating dinner. Mate Koediijue and brother entered the room with pistols drawn. Two shots sounded and the captain and supercargo fell over dead. After din ner the six bodies were thrown over board, and the vessel put for the Mar shall group. After trading for some time they returned toKinsrswell islands, where the cook had a quarrel with the Kodeiques over money matters, and re venged himself by disclosing the par ticulars of the murder to the Spanish authorities, and all three were taken to Tahiti for trial. At the time they seized the yacht there were sixty ton's of coperas, one ton of pearl shells and $3,000 in cash aboard. OUTRAGED AND KILL.KD. Shocking Tra«eily on the Bank of the Ohio River. Loirisvir.M:, Ky., Auc. 12.— A sensa tional crime has just come to light. Sunday morning the body of a woman was washed ashore at Willow Point, lnd., opposite this city. It was identi fied as that of Mary Lengel, a former chambermaid of Eckhert'.s hotel, this city, and the theory was suicide. After the police and detective department had dropped the case a reporter found the woman had beeu outraged and murdered by two men. Four boys saw two men drag a woman through a suburb of Jefferson late Saturday night, outrage her near the river bank. beat her and then drag her to the bar below the bridge, where they left the woman screaming as blows wore rained down on her head. One of the men wore a dark stubby beard, a derby hat, black coat ana very light pair of trousers. The boys were so frightened that they wore afraid to talk until last night, when one of them rec ognized a picture of the woman in a daily paper as beiug the woman they seen in the hands of the two men. A trip to the river shows evidence of a desperate struggle, and the woman's fan was found there. The men proba ably killed the woman and then hurled the body into the rapids of the falls. The head was crushed in, and this 13 thought to have been caused by the body striking the rocks. OX FICTITIOUS QUOTATIONS. Several Men Arrested at the St. iicmis "Exchange."
