THE RACES MUST GO.
Rev. Thomas Dixon Takes a I Shy at the Garfield Track, Chicago. I He Says It Is the Slaughter J Pen of Manhood, Honor and Decency. He Says That the Race Track Must Follow the Lottery Curse. Cincinnati Takes a Couple of | Games From Yon Der j Ahe's Pels. j New York, Oct. 2.— Before his regir ] lar sermon of today Rev. Thomas bison Jr. delivered another of his character istic talks. Today his subject was the '•Garfield Race Track," ot which he said i in part: "Gariicld Park in Chicago has for years openly defied the moral sentiment of the nation. It has been an open slaughter pen in which manhood, honor, decency, truth and virtue were daily butchered. It was the favored resort of the most desperate classes of the scum of the world. The people of Chicago J were recently shocked at the foul mur- | der of two policemen by a deperado gambler on these grounds. And if the people of Chicago tolerate such a hell hole in their midst, wet with the blood oi the officers of the law, they should takedown their statue in llaymarket square and confess that civic order has tailed after ail. Garfield track is typ ical of the race track today. The whole dirty business is ot the same piece. The conscience o! this nation has outgrown it. The race track must go as the lot tery has gone. The plain fact is that the lottery is a small evil compared with the races." roil TODAY'S RACES. Entries for the Events at Louis ville and Elsewhere.

Serious State of Affairs on a Mis sissippi Plantation. Ci.ai:k<l).\i.i:, Miss., Oct. 2.— Sheriff Harris was notified early this morning by Deputy Fitzgerald, of Friar's Point, to at once organize an armed posse and proceed to the plantation of J. O. Wil kinson, a large planter west of Bobe, a small station eight miles south of this place, to put down an insurrection among the negroes in that locality against the whites. Sheriff Harris promptly complied, and in a short time had an armed posse consisting of twenty-seven men. from this place and Friar's Point, moving to the scene. Authentic information has just been received that two negroes were killed outright and nine captured, and are now on the way to Friar's Point, heav ily guarded. In addition to the two negioes killed, several are said to be mortally wounded. The negrees look to the brush and are still out, all armed. None of the whites are reported hurt. From confessions made by some of the negroes, it is learned that they have organized an order among themselves comprising the whole neighborhood, with passwords and grips, with the avowed purpose of killing the whites. The greatest excitement prevails. The negroes are thoroughly organized, and tears are entertained that the end has not been reached. Mr. Sessions, man ager of the plantation, was fired upon three times yesterday, but was not hurt. The town is without telegraphic facii ties. «K2E» STABBED IN THE STOMACH.

New Yoijk, Oct. 2.— The committee appointed by the anti-snapper organ ization for tlie purpose of advising with the Democratic national committee on the subject of local nominations held a meeting at their headquarters hero to niiiht. Most of the members were pres ent, and it was decided unanimously to go ahead aud support an independent ticket. The following announcement was made after the meeting by Chair man Andrew D. Patter: "The committee tonight appointed a siib-coniniittee consistiiiir of myself, Isaac Klein and J. J. Quinlan. for the purpose of conferring with other Demo cratic organizations on the lines indi cated by the resolution previously passed by the organization. "Muclj has been said about the op position with which the idea of a third ticket has been met by the national committee. 1 wish to state right here, and the members of the committee will back me up in what 1 say, that not a word of objection or protest was raised at the conference held by this commit tee with the gentlemen of the national committee who met us, viz: Messrs. Harrity, Dickinson, Smaller and Quinoy, save one member. The im pression has gained circulation that the idoa of a tnird ticket was violently op posed, yet only one out of the four gen tlemen said a word in opposition. "I wish further to speak of the atti tude of ex-Mayor Grace. Not eat Her than last Friday night Mr. Grace gave Ins positive assurance that the nomina tion of a third ticket was the only proper and wise step to take." Mr. Parker's statements were vicor ously sustained by Messrs. Quinlan, Slevin, Jeroloman and others who were present. In reply to interrogations, Mr. Parker said: "Among the organizations with which we will confer will be the County Democracy and the German-American Cleveland and Stevenson union. We •are well aware that the latter organiza tion, by reason of its constitution, can not act with us as a body, but we do not propose to treat with it as a body. We believe, however, that they are favorably disposed toward us, and will be our active allies. As for any re ported opposition in their ranks to the third party idea, I have heard of none. On the contrary, the head of the or ganization, Oswald Ottendorrer, has stated distinctly that he was not pre pared to state his position as yet. and men of no less importance in the organ ization than Henry Yiilard and Jackson S. Sclmltze have declared themselves in favor of an independent ticket." iC i STORM AT LAVACA. Many Boats Are Destroyed — Some Still Missing. Gai.vkstox, Tex..

A Terrible Vapor Charged With Gases That Freeze the Heart's Blood. Only When It Is Disturbed Does the Paramo Strike. And When * It Strikes Its Blow Is Certain Death. A curious story has come down from the Cordilleran steeps of Los Andes, says a Caracas correspondent of the New York Recorder. Four scouts from a detachment of government troops met three scouts belonging to a party of revolutionists in the center of a paramo in the mountains some distance from Caracbe. Without stopping to think of the consequences, one of the soldiers raised his gun and Bred upon the revo lutionists. Instantly the paramo dis solved, and the seven men fell dead. This is supposition only, since no man lived to tell how it happened. All that is known is that the men were found dead in the paramo, without so nnich as a scratch upon them, but the rifle of one of the soldiers contained au empty cartridge. Beyond a!l doubt the men had been killed by the strange ter ror of the mountains. Thereby hangs a remarkable story of this most remark able country. What is a paramo? Frankly, Ido not know. There are many, many strange things in this tropical region "that Ido not pretend to explain. From all that 1 can learn a paramo seems to be a vis ible breath of death. It is a sort of heavy mist, or fog. It lurks on remote mountain heights like a monster lying in wait for human prey; it covers its place of execution with a white shroud, and hides from the eyes of the world its deed of wanton murder. The paramo is deadly only when dis turbed. Fire a gun, blow" a horn, or even shout aloud and the vengeful agent will instantly take your life and leave you there to let your friends wonder how you died. The only safety is silence. Even then a word spoken above a whisper, or the rattling of a loose rock may arouse the murderous wrath of the monster of the Andes. Perpetual brooding silence— a silence unbroken by song of bird or chirp of in sect—is the awful law of the paramo. The penalty of disobedience is instant death. A mysterious, awesome thing is this! What is its origin? How does it act? No man knows. Any one may con jecture quite as well as the learned per sons known as scientists, and come" as near the true solution. The theory is that the paramo is heavily charged with some sort of gas or vapor so unstable in its chemical structure that it breaks at concussion into other gases.one.at least. Of them being so terribly potent as U) instantly freeze tiie heart's blood of the victim within its grasp. Paramos are of different sizes, from the small one that may be passed in ten minutes' cautious walking to the fright ful nionste r that keeps the apprehensive traveler walking fot the best part ..of two days. There is one paramo in the region of Merida, in the state of Los Andes, that is so large that the traveler is compelled to camp in it one night. At that camp no fire may be lighted and no word spoken aloud. A gruesome camp, this! Usually the paramos are not so large but that the traveler may avoid them by making a detour of a few miles. The monster near Merida, however, is too large for that manner of escape. If the traveler goes through that part of the country he must face the deadly peril. Slain in au Instant. There are many stories of the sudden wrath of the paramo. Some of the most interesting go back to the time of the Spanish occupation. Two will serve my present purpose. During the pre paratory outbreaks of the war for South American independence, which began in Caracas, a detachment of Spanish troops, in command of a proud and hot headed Castilian officer, had occasion to pass through a paramo on the upper heights of the Cordilleras, near Merida, in wiiat is now the Venezuelan state of Los Andes. Natives warned the Spanish officer not to go through the paramo, but the proud commander scoffed at the warning, and made ready to march. Again the natives warned him to avoid above, all tilings the firing of guns, the blowing of horns, or the making of any noise. The officer laughed in his pride, mounted his horse, and marched gayly away, with drums tapping and banners flaunting in the tropical sun. In the very center of the paramo the disdainful Castilian ordered his military band to play and his soldiers to fire their guns. He probably meant to teach those ignorant, superstitious natives a lesson. The music swelled and re echoed from the mountain ■ sides, p.nd the guns roared out an angry challenge: Then the paramo awoke, It trembled a .houkmil. as though in rage, and then smote the cavalcade dead in an instant. Natives on a neighboring mountain ridge heard the tumult burst forth; and when it ceased a nionitnt afterward they went down to the paramo and walKed along the trail. It was a strange, ghastly sight that they came upon. Rider, horse, soldiers, musicians lay dead in the dust. Since that fateful day this paramo has been called theParame de Battalion, in honor of the brave bat talion that met death there. On another occasion during the same period of time a body of Spanish troops inarched to attack a small garrison of natives in the -mountains. On the way was a paramo, which the Spaniards knew nothing about. While they were approaching it, a native fastened an old bell-mouthed musket to a tree near the trail, and attached to the trigger a long string, which he carefully carried down the mountain side to a point below the danger line of the paramo. When the Spaniards reached the center of the paramo the native pulled the string and thereby fired the gun. The paramo dis solved and the Spaniards dropped dead in the trail. - .; RUTH A YEAR OLD.

V : -, — ; TOM WATSON'S LIES. -Cleveland Nails a Few of Them in .' . a Bunch. • Atlanta, Oct,'2.— ln his campaign speeches Tom Watson has repeatedly charged that Mr. Cleveland declined (o allow his wife to go to Richmond several years ago because he feared she would be brought in contact with Miss Winnie Davis. Mr. Cleveland has written the following .to Clark Howell, national committeeman from. Georgia, in reply: Gray Gables, Buzzard's Bay. Mass., Sept. Clark Howell Jr., Atlanta, Ga.— Dear Sir: 1 have been fairly bom barded for the past two or. three weeks by the reports of the falsehoods which are being circulated by the Peo ple's party and other -Southern organizations, circulated : to .prejudice me in the minds of the Southern people. The latest report comes to me ' from Gainesville, in your state, this evening, and represents Candidate Thomas E. Watson as saying in a public speech that Mrs. Cleveland refused to attend the unveiling .of the statue of Robert E. Lee because she feared she would there mccl Miss Win nie Davis. This is entirely a new fab rication. A number of the others have to do. however, with alleged refusals of my wife or myself to be introduced to Miss Davis, etc. Another prolific source of falsehoods of the stu pidest description is in regard to mv treatment of Frederick Douglass while I was president ana he was register of deeds in Washington. There are some others I do not defi nitely recall. These all seem to be circulated by active opponents of the Democratic party, and their purpose is, of course, apparent. . 1 have not thought it necessarry to deny these except in a very few cases. 1 thought when they assumed proportions worthy of notice 1 would probably hear from you or some other person who un derstands the Southern people. Such reports are irritating and exceedingly monstrous. Not one single statement which I have seen of the kind above referred to has any truth in it whatever, except this, that when Frederick K. Douglass was in public of fice in the city of Washington, I as president of the United States, ex tended to him the same courtesies, as far as public receptions and matters of that kind are concerned, which were extended to other officials of the same grade. This, of course, was his due as a matter of official decency and eti quette, and 1 should have been ashamed to treat him otherwise. If in your judgment you think it will do any good to make the denial above referred to, you are at liberty to do so in any way you think best. Very truly yours, Gkoveh Cleveland. -•- HARD OX HUBBY.

Babson and Taurel ar rived today from Iceland, each bringing 140,000 pounds of halibut. Augustus Johnson, a member of the crew of the Babson, was lost overboard on the homeward passage. The Danish bark llogla, that had been exploring on the coast of Greenland, had arrived at Dyrefjord. Her commander reports that the Ilogla was fifteen months on the coast of Greenland, most of the time imprisoned in the ice; that one of the crew died and was buried in the Arc tic ocean, aid that explorations of considerable importance were made. The party found the remains of Esqui maux habitations with dishes made of stones and other articles, the use of which was unknown, all of. which were forwarded to the Danish government. The commander of the Hqgla explored the island of Janmayer in latitude 71 deg north, longitude 7 cleg west, very deep water being found in that locality. The party dredged in 475 fathoms of water, bringing up seniment winch con tained such animal vegetation as sea anemone, together with pebbles similar to iron ore. After refitting at Iceland, • the llogla sailed Aug. 2S for Greenland, to complete the scientific researches that she had been commissioned to do. intending to remain all winter in South Greenland. The officeis. crew and the scientist on board were all well and houeful of attaining much valuable in formation. : - THE GRANITE CUTTERS, B£§ Their Strike Likely to Last All Winter. Babbe, Vt., Oct. 2.— lt appears that the contest between the granite cutters and dealers is not yetfully settled here. The trouble now is over tool sharpen ers. During the live months' suspen sion of business many dealers secured apprentice tool sharpeners, and when the . strike was settled a number of union sharpeners were unable to ob tain employment, owing to several small firms having apprentice sharpen ers and miow employing men enough to engage another blacksmith. The union claims that such dealers are not standing by the next bill of prices," which provides for one apprentice tool sharpener to each journejman sharp ener. The union says that the firms employing no journeymen and one ap prentice sharpener are breaking the agreement. It is understood that the union strike committee, has the matter in hand. A few cutters; have already left the sheds where the trouble exists. The dealers say they will not discharge apprentices to please the blacksmiths. It is thought that if the men are ordered out again the strike will last all winter. * — TTT*. 1 Death of Dr. Douglass. Washington, Oct. 2.— Dr. Douglass,; who attended Gen.

SMOOTH_AMSOEN. Continued Froui First Page. $5,000 a year to discontinue his compet itive buying of wheat at one of the sta tions in the Northwest. The eJort of Mr. Pillsbury, who was assumed to be the mouthpiece of the combination, h as been to show that this contract was with the Minneapolis & Northern Ele vator company, and not a part and par cel of a transaction affecting the com bination. The Herald has already shown that a pro rata share of the money paid to Wolcott was supplied by A. Bettin gen & Co., millers at Larimore, who, though they bought grain at Larimore to make an independent market and paid higher pricea than The Combine Paid. yet were induced subsequently to join the combine and pay a lower price. They contributed what would seem to be a disproportionate amount of the expenses attached to the stifling of Wol cott's competition. As further evidence that the contract with Wolcott was not a matter which the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator company alone entered into is the conduct of Amsden in this connection. Payments on the contract * came due and there were delays in the pay ments. Wolcott went to see Amsden, and Amsden said to him that when he entered into the contract he had a promise from other parties to contribute toward the expenses. Wolcott says he stated to Amsdeu that he had never known anybody but the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator company in connection with this contract, and that his contract was with that company. Amsden was asked, so the story goes, whom he was expecting help from, and he replied that J. (I. iiiland, general manager of the Minneapolis Millers' association, had agreed to charge the entire sum of ?:20,000, which was $T,,000 per year for live years, to the expense account of that organization, but lliland had now gone back on that agreement, expressing a fear of an investigation if such a large amount was charged to the expense account of the association. Complications Among Ringsters. It had not been tiie intention of Ams den to let the members of the associa tion, who were the'elevator companies, know what this 825,000 was for. At least it was not his intention to make it a matter of public record, so that in charging the $25,000 to the expense account of that association Mr. lliland would be debiting the association with a sum of money denominated simply as general expenses. He objected to this upon the ground that an investigation would be demanded because the sum was so large. In stating that lliland objected to charging this sum to the account of the Minnesota Millers' asso ciation Amsden explained that all the elevator companies were buying wheat from the association, "and they all got the same benefit under the contract which the Minne apolis & Northern Elevator company derived, thus conclusively showing a combination. Amsden was very indig nant that lliland should have gone back on his promise, and it worried him con siderably to think that the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator company had to stand this item of expense alone. So Amsden, the representative of the Pills bury interests in the Northwsst, to whom Mr. Pillsbury gives the credit ot being a very successful busines man, expressed the desire to get even with lliland, and incidentally to make the olevator companies smart. Amsden state t that time that Mr. Pillsbury was aware of this refusal of Uiiand, and that the compelling of the other eleva tors to come in upon this expense was a matt of generalship; that Mr. Pills bury otild Ou tgeneral Kb. Hiland, and would undoubtedly do so. He gave Pillsbury credit for being a great gen eral, and said that the latter had long had a desire to control every mill and eieuator in the Northwest, and it was only a matter of time when he would do so. Lie said that, as the contract with Wolcott then stood, it came very hard on the Minneapolis & Northern Ele vator company, and he wanted to make those other companies '"put up." He said that Pillsbury had it in particularly for the Northwestern Elevator company and Cargill Brothers and wanted to "do" them. Anisden's feeling against the North western Elevator company was to a cer tain extent explained subsequently by the fact that in his letter to Stuart re garding the profits of the elevator com panies he stated that the Northwestern Elevator company made 22 per cent dividends. Ot all the elevators composing the combination the North western elevator v.as the elevator which made the least profits in the Northwest. While other companies made 30, 40 and 50 per cent, this com pany made 22 per cent dividends. The averaging of wheat receints by the vari ous members of the combine made it im possible for the Northwestern Elevator company to receive less wheat than the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator com pany, whose country elevators were almost side by side with those of the Northwestern Elevator company. Yet the dividends were less by one-third. This would indicate that if the Minne apolis & Northern Eievator com pany and the Nornhwestern Elevator company received each 500,000 busheb of wheat, just by way of example, and if they each paid the same price and re ceived the same price, for the wheat, the difference in dividends secured by the two companies was due to the fact that the Northwestern! company Gave Better Weishts on wheat. Its elevators did not over run as much as did those of the Minne apolis & Northern. If there is any credit to be given any one member of this combination, which does not affect the existence of a combination, it is due to the Northwestern Elevator company for its self-deuial in being content with the products of the minimized robbery. Of course the farntei is robbed by both companies, but, inasmuch as he is robbed less by the Northwestern Eie vator company, it may occur to him as a mere matter of business that whatever minimum oi robbery exists inures to his benefit. The farmers discovered that they got a little better results from the Northwestern Elevator company, and quite a little capital was made "out of that fact by that company, and farmers very willingly drove out of their way, as much as twenty-five miles in some instances, to give their wheat to the Northwestern Elevator company, not because they believed that company was strictly honest, but because it was less dishonest than the Minneapolis & Northern. The Conspiracy in Detail. It is very evident from this that Ams den was actuated by a desire, and sub sequent develpments show that he car ried out his scheme*, upon the plan sug gested in this interview. ; He entered into an agreement, which, of course, on account of its character, was not re duced to writing, by which his partner in this enterprise was to buy all the wheat tickets issued by every elevator company in the Northwest. This part ner objected, when the scheme was broached to him, that he had no money to go into a plan of this sort, and Ams den said that so far so this was con cerned, "we," meaning the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator company. Pills bury's pet corporation, have "all the money we . want," He outlined the plan of campaign. The part ner in the case was to employ traveling men to go through the Northwestern country. These traveling men .were to visit all stations where the Minneapolis Northern T Elevator company had ' a country elevator.' The traveling man was to go to a banker, merchant, or other business man prominent in that JjteK ITCHING HUMORS [v\^H; !? 1\ Torturing, disfiguring - eczemas, !\>;s^i,j and every species of itching, burn £M3. fg? iD ?.

This representative man was to give for wheat half a cent per bushel above the list price, if necessary, to get the tick ets. Amsden's part in this scheme was to hold all the rest of the elevator com panies down to the list price, so as to give the representative men in the va rious towns a chance to buy all the tickets. Naturally enough the farmers would sell their" tickets where they could get the most for them. After the two conspirators had bought up wheat tickets representing several hundred thousand bushels of wheat, Amsden was to Find an Excuse lor Starting « Fight with the other elevator companies. The plan was for the prominent men in these towns, who acted as the agents of the conspirators, to buy tickets on the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator company as well as other companies, so the people would not mistrust that the scheme was to the advantage of the Minneapolis & Northern company. Amsden even went so far as to agree to say, if any inquiries were made, that he did not know his partner, had never heard of him, and had uo connection whatever with him. He said that he and Pillsbury would disclaim any con nection with the partner under any and all circumstances. After the conspirators had succeeded in buying several liundred thousand tickets, Amsdcn was to raise the price of wheat gradually two or three cents per bushel a day, and when he got up 20 or 25 cents more than wheat was worth or selling lor his partners trav eling agents were to take the tickets out of the Northwestern bank, at Min neapolis, carry them to tho towns where they had been bought, and get the same men who had bought them" to take them to the "pay-offs," or elevator companies, themselves, and get them cashed. Of course, they were not to discriminate against the Minneapolis & Northern, and* it was expected that the tickets would be redeemed by the Min neapolis & Northern Elevator com pany's "pay-offs." So that if the farmers had scattering tickets the ele vators issuing the Tickets Wou'd Be Forced to Re* deeiu Them. The theory of this part of the scheme was that, if the Minneapolis & North ern Elevator company redeemed its tickets, all the other elevator companies would have to do the same or be charac terized as"no good"and subjected ;o se rious injury in their reputation among the farmers. If the scheme worked out satisfactorily, the profits made on the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator com pany's elevators were to be turned back to the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator company, so that it would be saved harmless and insured against loss. The profit on the other elevator companvs' tickets was a horse of another color. The lump sum made by this in trenious scheme was to be divided between Amsden and his partner. The effect of this was not only to enrich Mr. Amsden, but to force the other elevators out of existence, the figures at which they had to redeem their tickets being so excessive that it was impossible ior them to find any profit in the deal. The understanding was that after this was done Amsden would, by manipulation, let the price down to the old list price. Then, if ob jections were urged, he was to apolo gize and smooth the matter over upon one pietense or another, and when the excitement had blown over he was to begin and repeat the operation, work ing the same scheme to his own satisfac tion and the demoralization ot such other elevators as had not been de stroyed in the previous sortie. Alter Certain Firms Special efforts were made to exter minate the Northwestern Elevator com pany .uhl Cargili brothers,as has before been shown. Amsden seemed to be particularly antagonistic and inimical to those two companies. Banker S. A. Hairis played a conspicuous part in tiiis ingenious enterprise. By the terms of the deal he was to furnish the money required to swing this operation. By an arrangement with Amsden lie was to let Amsden's partner have all the money he wanted on the tickets bought. The tickets were to be left with "Harris as collateral. To A. B. Kobbins and Car gill Brothers this statement will oast a rlood ot light upon what was to them a very peculiar circumstance— namely, why so many of their wheat tickets found their way into the Northwestern National bank, where Cargili and A. B. Kobbins, manager of the Northwestern Elevator company, redeemed them. When the price was put up, as Aras den agreed to do. Mr. Harris was to send the tickets to the country bankers who acted as agents for Amsden's partner, with instructions to sell them and take the money that was paid at the stations by the Minneapolis & North ern Elevator company. A Hitch in the Deal. While this scheme was a most skill ful and ingenious one. it was not prose cuted to fruition. Auisden's partner went ahead upon the understanding with Amsden, and hired a couple of traveling men, and secured authorized agents at Park River, Grafton, Lari more and other points, and started in to execute the details of the conspiracy. He bought tickets to the amount of probably .50,000 bushels, and the scheme was going along swimmingly, when Amsden's partner was advised by let ter, dated Nov. 15. ISSC, to the following effect : Minneapolis. Nov. 15, 18S!S.— Waut no more tickets. At present list prices are go ing off. Better notify buyers to hold up until further orders (by wire). Money cannot be obtained, and I cannot taKe the tickets as suKfeested at present. Better stop buying Yours. C. M. Amsden-. (Confidential:) (Over.) If you continue buying count me out for the present. C. M. amsuen. An explanation of that letter is this: The money market was very stringent, and ajl the elevator men at that time experienced a great deal of difficulty in obtaining money to handle their busi ness. That was one point that Mr. Amsden had made— that Mr. Pillsbury could burrow ali the money that he wanted from the Bank of Montreal and other large banks, while the other con cerns could not. This put Mr. Pillsbury on Top of the heap. His credit was so strong that he couki stand the draft upon the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator com pany and i afterward, inasmuch as the money made on the Minne apolis & Northern elevator tickets was to be turned into the Minneapolis <& Northern Elevator company, he could redeem whatever injury his credit might have suffered. Amsden's part ner discontinued buying in accordance with the request contained in that let ter. He wired his agents to stop buy ing, and held up for some time. His partner wrote to ask whether Amsdeu had any objection to his going on with the deal personally. In reply Amsden wrote as follows: Minneapolis, Xov. 18, ISS6.— Dear Sir: Have been away from office this morning, l>iit now hasten to auswer your favor I fiud on my desk of 17th. and would say no objec tion until further notice. au<i I should lite the Minneapolis & Northern tickets, and will cash the same as fast as bought. Hastily, etc.. C. M. amsden. Mr. Amsden's partner was totally un prepared, through having received these letters, which seemed to explain the matter satisfactorily, for what he subsequently ascertained from a travel in^ man appointed by the Minneapolis Millers' association, who had knowledge of the fact that Amsden was playing "roots," to use a vulgar vernacular, upon the other elevator companies com posing the combine. As he had repre sented the trust, this traveling agent was more or less interested in its suc cess as a trust, and when he discovered that the Minneapolis & Northern Ele vator company was Practicing a Sclicnie which, to his educated mind, inured to the advantage of the Minneapolis & Northern Elevator company more than to the trust as a trust, be promptly noti fied one of the members of the combine who was not in the deal. This gentle man was James Cargill. Mr. Cargili is red-headed, and necessarily irascible. Quite an interesting scene occurred be tween Cargill and Amsden, Mr. Pills bury's right-hand man, when Careill called upon him to ascertaiu "what in thunder" he meant by going outside of the understanding existing between members of the combine and trying to cut the throats of the other members. It seems that Mr. Catgut, being red headed, has a wood pile in which he keeps n choice collection of chips. These chips he periodically places on his lett shoulder when an occa sion of this sort arises, and, with much dramatic effect, dares the offender to displace it. When he dis covered Mr. Amsden's duplicity be se lected from his wood pile the very larg est chip he couid find, and placing it upon its favorite resting place proceed ed to interview Mr. Amsden. Holding the chip with his hand for fear it would fall off, he made a jump for the table be fore which Mr. Amsden sat. and placed himself squarely in the center of it. The vituperations which Mr. Pillsburv has been using without due regard for their boomerang effect, are words of Tender Endearment compared to the sulphuric, profane and denunciatory objurgations which, with wonderful facility, Mr. Cargill hurled at the devoted head of Mr. Amsden. The mildest word in the vocabulary em ployed by Mr. Cargill would shame a denizen of the Chicago levee. In other words, he damned him up hill and down dale, and then, standing back, asked him to proceed with the "demolition of that large chip which he carried lor just that purpose. Amsden did not remove the piece of wood. He looked at it and decided it was too large. Cargill then informed Amsdch that if he found the latter's partner buying any more wheat tickets up in that country h— l would be to pay. Ever since that Mr. Amsden has had a very high regard for Jim Cargill's red head. It was Mr. Cargill's determined attitude which pulled Mr. Amsden oft the track. In his statement to his part ner he did not mention this fact, which was developed with corroborative evi dence at a subsequent period. When money irot easier his partner called upon him, and Amsden stated Uiat the deal was too big a one to swing, lie won Id have to figure out some other scheme for "doing" the companies, he said. It is a fact than when Cargill made his objections in so strenuous and insistent a manner Amsden was fright ened nearly to death, and to placate Cargill had to declare the deal off. He ordered Harris not to furnish any more money to his partner in the conspiracy, and directed him to shut him off get ting money wherever he could. This little history seems to establish the general character of Mr. Pillsbury's right-hand man. Amsden. Whether Mr. Pillsbury was familiar with it would be only interesting to know in connection with an exposition of the extent of Mr. Pillsbury's knowledge. But the story is told as merely illustrative in strong colors of the character of the men with whom Mr. Pillsbury surrounded him self. If it is assumed that Mr. Pillsbury was absolutely ignorant of this deal, the lesson it teaches is still a very strong onerfor Mr. Pillsbury has said that he promptly discharged men who were guilty of acts subversive of right ful and honorable methods as applied to the elevator companies. In Failing to DlMchargc Aiusden the general principle that the acts of the agent are the acts of the principal has, it would seem, thorough elucina tion. The fanner of the Northwest will doubtless read this story with no little satisfaction, and will probably regret that in this case there -,vas not the usual exemplification of the old adatre that "When thieves fail out, honest men get their dues/ When he declared that the charges made against the Min neapolis wheat combine were the "veri est rot," Amsden doubtless congratu lated himself upon the fact that the first installment of the expose did not hit him half so hard as some other facts would strike him if they became known. The depth of the infamy of this close association of bandits and brigands has not yet ueen readied. "To thyself be true, and it fol lows as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to" any man," seems to have no part in the practice of this organization. This story shows very clearly that in the case of the Min nesota wheat rink, at least, there is not honor among thieves. Like a double edged sword, Mr. Amsdeu's treachery and villainy cut both ways, for, while he was true to his associates in the greater conspiracy, he was untrue to li is one associate in the lesser conspir acy. His path seems to have been strewn with violations of agreements and distinguished disregard for every understanding which he had. It ap pears that he has not settled up with his partner in this infamy, and it is stated that a suit growing out of the transactioh is not unlikely. It will doubtless result in the baring to the public gaze of a skeleton beside which "a gigantic conspiracy" is as a pigmy t<# a Goliath. As Issue With llussia.
