Our opponents tell us that the
Ira ill* question was settled by the
enactment of the 3lcK.iu.ley bill,
and they deprecate any agitation
of the subject of its repeal. Our
answer is that no public question
ran be deemed settled in this
country until It has been rightly
» -tiled.— David B. Hill.
What a great thing for the country
pugilism is, to be sure. Three or four
bisr fights a year, at which nobody is
li art. and all the rest of the time for
such bluffing and chinning and blovi
ating as effectively protect the dear
'public from the onslaughts of ennui.
Take any day's pugilistic news— that
Sjiven in Tuesday morning's papers,
for instance. It is like a tonic; it breaks
up the stagnation of the dullest political
campaign on record, and fairly makes
our nerves tingle with pleasurable ex
citement. In the first place, there is
that thrilling interview with Mr. Sulli
van-, in which he throws out deft in
sinuations of foul play in connection
•with his recent misadventure at New
Orleans. "Do you mean that you were
nrucged?" asked the interviewer; and
the ex-great man looks down the
wings, right and left, in true melo
dramatic fashion, before he re
sponds in husky accents: "There
" was some tli ing wrong. I am not
making any direct charges just now,
but that 1 was not right I well know.
After the first round I could see half a
dozen Cobbktts." S'death! but what
ii dark conspiracy is here unfolded.
With six Richmond's in the field against
him, of course John L. had no show.
"We should say there was "something
■wrong." : Mr. Cobbett hit entirely too
And here also is a thrilling rumor that
"Mr. Sullivan doesn't know when he
has had enough— that he contemplates
trying his luck with Mr. Cokbett
again. To this rumor, however, Mr.
Sullivan enters a mild disclaimer. He
isn't hunting a fight with Mr. Cokbett
Just at present, he says, but "I may do
so at some later day. lam one of those
Edwin Booth fellows, or rather, an
actor, now. I'm going to stick to acting
as long as 1 can, and after I am through
- with the stage there is no telling exactly
who I will fight." Mr. Sullivan's
grammar is a trifle faulty, though we
wouldn't care to tell him so to his face.
But see what a graceful distinction he
makes between an "Edwin Booth fel
low" and an "actor." He himself is an
"actor," and those "Edwin Booth fel
lows" will have to find some new name
for their branch of the trade.
Mr. Cokbett is also an "actor." His
. opening in "Gentleman Jim" furnished
another thrilling pugilistic item yester
day. "The house was packed to the
doors," and "during the evening the
star was presented with a number of
large floral offerings, and after the per
formance he held an . impromptu recep
tion." Bouquets and handshakes!
Picture this gentle bruiser smothered
In roses and besieged by the admiring
populace! Zoundsi What an inspiring
scene! How its recital shatters the
monotony of these else wise prosaic
times! Vive pugilism !
There is a great suggestion for the
tnelodramatist in an incident reported
from Niagara Falls. On a slender scaf
fold, suspended from the cantilever
bridge, 200 feet above the roaring waters
of Niagara, two painters engaged iv
desperate combat. Locked in a deadly
embrace, they struggled and staggered
and swayed from side to side of their
narrow foothold. Mad with passion,
they essayed each to hurl the other into
the seething waters below. Finally,
one of them freed one of his hands and
snatched up a hatchet. Three cruel
blows on the head and neck, and his
victim toppled over off the scaffold.
The hungry waters, however, did not
receive their. expected prey. The man
was miraculously caus-ht in some guy
ropes, out of reach of his antagonist,
and eventually reached the bridge top
alive, although desperately wounded.
His assailaut had already climbed up
ana escaped.
i Tut this incident into melodrama,
and the gallery gods would feast
with a relish which the gods on high
Olympus never equaled Astute critics
would frown down the idea as "ab
surdiy overdrawn" ana "wildly extrav
agant," but lovers of sensational his
trionism would pour their contributions
into the box office.
Aside from its dramatic possibilities,
the incident is good material for the
moralizer. It well illustrates the ter
rific force with which sudden fury can
seize man in its clutches, rob him of all
reason and make him its plaything.
And it also, perhaps, exemplifies the
Munchausen capabilities of enterpris
ing newspaper correspondents. :
There is a newspaper, pleasantry
about the protective value of a life in
surance policy which enjoys a popularity,
as great as the mother-in-law joke, r and
which, in spite of its advanced years,
appears with perennial iteration ■'. to
gladden the risibilities of myriads of
readers. Sometimes it takes one form,
and sometimes another. Now a man is
shaken up in a railroad accident, and,
escaping without a scratch, curses the
luck which has prevented his making
something out of the insurance com
panies. And, again, a woman rallying
from a serious illness says: "I do not
see any use in keeping up my pre
miums. I'll never get any good from
them. My constitution is too stout."
The profundity of this conceit has been .
surpassed in the history of witticisms,
but the public likes it, and the press
strives to gratify the public.
A few weeks ago, when the Grand
Army of the Republic was assembling
iv Washington, the Globe commented
with wonder on the vast number of vet
erans there were surviving in vigorous
health after the lapse of thirty years
from the time of the civil war, and it
suggested by way of explanation that a
pension was as effective a life preserver
as an insurance policy. This, of course,
is not the real explanation; ana it is,
perhaps, hardly necessary to add that it
was not intended as such. The real ex
planation is to be found in the fact that
the Union army was composed for the
most part of the young men of the conn;
try, and a quarter of a century has not
been long enough to bring them past
middle age. But as a passing fancy the
idea was not without uient.and it served
tho useful purpose of calling attention
editorially to an important item of
news, the details of which appeared in
another columu of the same paper.
-^ By
The Globe does not usually explain
its ephemeral flashes of high spirits in
this style, and positively declines either
now or ever to apologize for them. If
they are good they defend themselves,
and if they are bad they carry with
them their own appropriate punishment.
But this particular paragraph under
the careful manipulation of the Globe's
diseased morning contemporary, been
made the text for so many public ab
surdities that its revival is demanded as
a basis for some contributions to a list
of the possibilities of human asininity.
The climax in this direction .was
reached night before last, when the pre
siding officer of one of our local Grand
Army posts undertook a reply to what
be characterized as the Globe's assault
on his holy order. He said that he had
read the offensive article while absent
from the city, and that the hot tears of
indignation and outraged sensibilities
had gushed spontaneously in response,
Hooding his beard and shirt linen.
Since his return to St Paul, he stated,
he had found out the name of its author
by patient investigation, and he de
clared from his knowledge of the pen
sion office's statistics that the Globe's
facts were totally and absolutely untrue.
If there is anything more pathetically
absurd than this in the lines of con
temporary opera bouffe, it has yet to be
recited in the presence of a St. Paul
audience. Jokes are frequently depress
ing things, but this is the first recorded
instance off the stage where one of them
has made a strong man weep. The
Globe is exceedingly proud of the .dis
tinction thus conferred upon its efforts
in the line of light literature, and is
glad that it has been singled out for
this honor. By way of reciprocity, it
hastens to put on the brow of its valiant
critic as many garlands as its stock of
rare exotics makes possible. It is
sorry that he should have lapsed
from a strict adherence to the truth
when he said that he knew the name
of the offensive paragraph's author. He
does not know this, and could not guess
it in a thousand and one entertaining
nights. But he is quite accurate in his
claim that the Globe was in error
when it eulogized the life-preserving
qualities of a pension. Seriously, a pen
sion can no more ward off the approach
of death than an insurance policy. The
gentleman is entirely right. He is a
philosopher,' ana has made a great dis
covery. When some kind-hearted phil
anthropist endows an institution where
the thick-skulled can have their heads
rubbed free of charge, the GLlobe will
see that he gets the first chance at its
benefits as a reward for his brilliancy.
It is an exhibition of this sort which
scrapes the veneering off of all these
partisan references to the civil war and
discloses their arrant hypocrisy. . The
same men who use the strongest eye
glasses to spell out something inimical
to the cause of the Union in a Demo
cratic newspaper's columns sing dog
gerels at their stated meetings in praise
of "General" ALCrEK,who was cashiered
from the federal army for disobedience
of orders, and pledge themselves by
secret oaths to vote for White law
lleid, who was a pestilential foe of all
the heroes worshiped by our united
country today. The Globe has already
on several occasions referred to Reid's
war record.and this morning it publishes
some illustrative extracts from the Re
publican vice-presidential candidate's
writings. During the darkest hours of
those unhappy years, Abraham Lin
coln and the Union generals had no
heavier burden to bear than the cruel
assaults of the critics of their own
households. The soul of the martyr
president was daily lacerated almost
beyond the point of human endurance
by the carping, snarling bitterness of a
low race of penny-a-liners, who put a
false construction on his every act, and
held him up in the contemporary press
to popular obloquy and condemnation.
Foremost in this treacherous crew was
Wiiitelaw Keid, who blackguarded
not only Lincoln, but Grant and
Sherman nnd Stanton and Hallbck
and Buell as well. From 1860 to 1876
be was the uncompromising enemy
of every man who had made him
self cousplcuous by patriotic toil. He
was a leading spirit in the cabal which
sought the political assassination of
Abraham Lincoln in ISG4. and in 1872
he bolted the nomination of Ulysses
S. Giant because he questioned the
right of the soldier to enjoy the highest
honors at the country's hands. And
yet such a man with such a history,
wlnn elevated by the accident of wealth
to n nliiee ou his party's national ticket,
i^ fawned upon as though he had lost
an ■urn on the field of battle. If our
local Grand Army posts want to pass
resolutions, they can find material for
one every h >ur in the printed works of
WHITKLAW Keii>, and not have to ex
pose themselves to ridicule, either, as
they do when they tackle the Globk,
But it is not the Union's cause they
have at heart. It is the cause of the
Republican party.

Gov. Peck Places 'the Demo
cratic Majority at Thirty
The .Legislature Will Also Be
Democratic, in Spite of
Jt <& the Republicans,
And Old "Saw Lo&s" Will Re
tire to the Shades of Pri
vate Life.
Senator Hompe Places Don
nelly's Vote at a Low Fig
ure in Otter Tail.
The versatile humorist, journalist a lid ;
Democratic statesman, Hon. George W.
Peck>' governor of Wisconsin, was in St.
Paul yesterday.' afternoon. But his
stay, unhappily, was brief, else he would
have been the honored guest of certain \
Democratic leaders here during the day.
Gov. Peck is a peculiar man. For one
so conspicuous in the political firma
ment, he is an exceptionally modest
man. Although so well known and
popular that : his presence in any me
tropolis -/must create at least a little stir
among members of his party as well as -
his friends, there, were very few people
in St. Paul yesterday who knew that he
was really in the city. But he was, and
it might be related that perhaps his
identity was / largely screened by the
nut-brown tan that he brought with
him from the North Dakota prairies. .
"I've been up in North Dakota look
ing at some hinds," said lie in his court
eous style. "I have been gone a little
less than two weeks. 1 took a gun
along as a sort ot side issue, and for this
I have gained the reputation of being a
sportsman, but 1 will frankly confess to
you that 1 did not really get game
enough to give me distinction as a crack
shot. Stili 1 did bag a number of geese,
and goose shooting is royal sport if the
geese would only wait for a man to
knock 'em down. They have a vexa
tious habit, however, of taking wing
every time 1 arrive in their neighbor
hood. The weather has been too warm
for first-class shooting.
"As a pleasure trip— well, Iv'e had
more agreeable experiences. Riding
150 miles across prairie roads in a com
mon lumber wagon 'has no charms for
me." said the Badger statesman with a
"What do you think of the outlook in
Wisconsin, governor?" asked the re
"Everything seems promising. I be
lieve we will carry tiie state by 30,000
this time. The Democrats are united,
and harmony characterizes their ef
. forts."
"If your predictions are fulfilled, the
legislature will be Democratic."
"Certainly. We elect a United States
senator. If the legislature is Democratic
we will send a Democratic successor to
Senator Sawyer to Washington." 7 *
"You are not a candidate, governor?" ,
"Oh, no, 1 will not enter the lists, but.
there are several very desirable and
strong candidates that have been men
tioned. Among the leading statesmen
and diplomats that are talked or are Gen.
Bragg and John Mitchell, of Milwaukee.
George W. Pratt, of Oshkosh, .John.
Winons. of Janesville, and G. M. Wood-,
ward, of La Crosse, also have friends
who would like to send them to the
senate." ;! : v
"If the Republicans should' happen
to capture the legislature." pursued
Gov. Peck, "they will probably return ;
Senator Sawyer. Spooner wanted to
succeed Sawyer, but since he has been
nominated for governor it is supuosed
that he has been positively taken out of '
the line." ; ; . .. ■„ : li
And Will Get Many Alliance Votes '
in the Seventh District.
"Donnelly will get nothing in Otter

"You know the Alliance party in our

"What about the congressional can- .

"Well,, you know that the district
went about 8,000 Alliance at the last
election. It will not do it . this time,
however, owing to a combination of cir
cumstances, Feig will get part ot the
Alliance vote in Otter Tail; but Kelso,
the Democratic candidate, will get a
large vote from the Alliance in the bal
ance of the district. The Prohibition- !
ists are particularly strong in the fifth j

also; but Boen, the People's party can

The Citizens of St. Paul Preparing
to Celebrate Oct. 21. .'•?
Some fifty prominent citizens, met at
the chamber of commerce last night to
set on foot a citizens' movement for a
Columbian, celebration on Oct. 21.
Charles 1. McCarthy was chosen chair
man, and then Prof: Carman, principal
of the high school, was called upon for
an expression. He said that the schools
of the city were preparing to celebrate
in accordance with the plan made out
for all the schools of the nation.
"I have come," said he, "hoping to
see some definite. . action taken so that
the schools may take part in the general
celebration. The schools will, of course,
celebrate in any event. The programme
now is for the children to march out of
the high' school building at 9a. in. of
that day, salute t>ie national flag, go
through with some appropriate exer
cises, in which they will sing an ode,
written by Edna Dean Howells. It is
the intention to have a number of prom
inent citizens address them. Then
perhaps the scholars will pass through
a review. They will march around a .
few blocks; not so tar as to tire them
out. Now, if there is to -be a general
celebration we wish to ■ modify our pro
gramme so that thr children can have it

A Case in the Circuit Court That
Will Become a Precedent.
The United States circuit court of
appeals put in a busy day of it yester
day. The most important case probably
which has come before the court since
its creation, is one submitted yesterday.
It involves a principle which sets at
issue the title to millions of dollars'
worth of the public domain granted to
railroads in the halcyon days of the
Republican administration, aod which
recent legislation has sought to turn
back into the domain for the benefit of
the actual settler. It may be observed
that, such a ceurse was urged by promt
nent Democrats in coneress, aud partly
accomplished in 1887." The particular
land involved is located in Kansas, and
was granted in the sixties to the Union
Pacific Railroad company. There are
a great many of these cases and they
arp constantly increasing. The one be
fore the coprt yesterday is a test case,
upon tho fate of which thirty cases de
pend, as it has been stipulated that the
others will be determined by the de
cision in the case of Henry Burr vs.
Carlos S. Greely, which was argued at
length before the court.
This case involves about fifteen sec
lions of land which was originally
granted to the Union Pacific railroad in
Kansas, and the defendant derived title r
from the railroad. The plaintiff claims
sepre-emption of the , land, ; based : upon
settlement in pursuance of the act of
congress, in 1887, which reclaimed so
much of the land as had" not been
earned by the railroad-by building its
road as contemplated by its grant. The
claimant is represented by John E.
Murray, of Topeka, Kan., ;. who has
brought a number of suits, and the de
!ffense is represented by A. L. Williams,
of Topek»,'who also represents the
Union Pacific. The court took great
interest in drawing out the points on
which the title depends, as evidenced
by Judge Caldwell asking a number of
pointed questions. - - . .-,. . ...,•■ ]

The Force Bill Eulogized and
Urged as the Main
Primaries to Be Warm This
Evening— Hot Legislative
Hon. John ft. Lynch, the colored ex
meniber of congress from Mississippi,
and liepublicau .stump orator, was
given a bigger ovation last night
than was given to Knute Nelson a few
weeks ago in this city. He had a larger
procession, and a larger audience was
in Market hall. The audience included
a great many white men and women
who were doubtless curious to see and
here the noted colored orator. Mr.
Lynch rode about the city in a carriage
with Dr. Murphy, accompanied by a
band and a torchlight procession while
the crowd at Market hall was being
entertained by Judge Carroll and Hon.
Hiram F. Stevens. Judge Carroll was
introduced by E. P. Wade, the colored
janitor at the capitol, and found some
embarrassment in filling in the time
prior to the arrival of the speaker of the
evening:. While he was speaking Hon.
Hiram F. Stevens took a seat on the
stage and was called for during a pause
of the judge, who said he intended to
discuss another subject, but would yield
to Mr. Stevens, as he was only trying
to kill time.
Mr. Stevens said he came there to in
troduce the speaker or the evening, but
he found that he had been introduced
to speak himself. He launched out into
what proved to be a good speech. He
said that if he had lived in the
days of Andrew Jackson lie would
probably have made him a Democrat, as
his readings make him a great admirer
of that grizzled warrior and statesman,
and r.ould pardon the tew gray-haired
Democrats who still vote for him. Mr.
Stevens also had a word of compliment
for Grover Cleveland and David B.
Hill. He then stated he had no excuse
to offer for waiving the bloody shirt,
and then asserted that the Democrats
had declared the war a failure.
While Mr. Stevens was talking on the
force bill the expected orator arrived,
and was greeted with applause as he
took a seat on the stand.
Mr. Stevens stopped waiving the
"bloody shirt," and introduced F. L.
McGhee, who made a short speech in
which he claimed to be an Irishman,
and asserted that Mr. Lynch is also
Irish, and that the Republicans are in
it while the Democrats are singing "Ta
ra-ra boom de aye."
Mr. Stevens then introduced the
orator of the evening. Mr. Lynch said he
came from the far South to give a few
reasons, trom a Republican standpoint,
why Harrison should be elected, and
proceeded to urge the desirability of
passing the forco bill so that the colored
people can get control of the South
He urged the audience not to refrain
from beating the Democratic party
under the impression that it is dead,
but to keep pounding away at it He
opuosed Democracy because it believes
in state rights and advocates state sov
Mr Lynch was considerably off on the
paper currency, as evidenced by his
statement that depreciated paper money
was responsible for Mississippi not get
ting any benefit from the Pnabody edu
cational fund. He probably does not
know that the Peabody educational fund
was not available until after the war
and tlie state Dank era.
He said that the only difference be
tween a Democratic convention in Min
nesota and his state is that the conven
tion in the South amounts to an election,
while it does not in this state. He said
in Minnesota a Republican is a citizen,
in the South he is a nigger.
The speaker said he was not a tariff
stump speaker, but his mission was to
discuss the force bill and urge the eiec
tion of Harrison at all hazards. He de
clared that a colored man cannot be a
Democrat; but if he is he cannot go to
"If you want to travel as a gentleman
and are a darky you can travel in a
tirst-class car in a Republican state,"
said he, "but if you want to visit me
and my plantations— l own plantations
in the South, but 1 run them from
Washington— you must take a seat
in a '.Jim Crow' car." He declared
that Democratic states prohibit colored
people meeting white people on the
same social scale. He said that the
Democrats in the South claim they want
to keep the negroes from voting the Re
publican ticket, because it would put
dishonest men into office and allow
negro domiuancy. In conclusion he ap
pealed to tiie colored voters to help
remove Cleveland, whom he declared to
be the mainstay of Democracy, and to
elect Harrison, go that the colored men
in the South may get control of that
Meeting of the Kepublican State
Central Committee.
There was a full attendance at the
meeting of the Kepublican state central
committee, and the time was devoted to
bracing up each other's courage. Every
body said his part of the state was all
right, but just what tangible facts he
based the assertion upon was not
clear: probably the fact tnat the state
had been in the habit of going Repub
lican. Some of the members from the
northern part of the state reported that
Nelson was gaining up there, and that
made all the rest feel good, and so ev
erybody turned in and shouted for a
season. The conclusion was finally
reached that the state would give a
plurality of from 18,000 to 30.000. At
the afternoon session it was voted to
hold two or three weeks hence a meet

A Joint Debate Would. Be Amus
ing to the Audience.
Ignatius Donnelly and Knute Nelson
are billed by chance to speak on the

Mr. Donnelly accepts an opportunity to
corner Mr, Nelson into a joint discus
sion. The following letter was there
tore indited to Mr. Jamison, cnairnian
of the Republican central committee,
and handed him by a member of the
IVople's party, so that the Republicans
could not dodge ths issue by alleging
that the challenge was not received:
To Robert Jamison, Chairman Republican
State Central Committee. St. Paul, Minn.—
DfarSir: I find that Ignatius Donnelly and
Hon. Knute Nelson are both to toeak in the
town of Hatvley, at the same time, viz., Mon
day, Oct. 17. On behalf of Mr. Donnelly I
beg leave to challenge Mr. Nelson to a joint
debate at that time and place on the issues of
the day. I will be glad to confer with you
as to the proper division of time and other
details. Very respectfully, yours,
Louis Haksojt.
Secretary People's Party Central Committee.
St. Paul, Oct. 5, 1892.
Republican headquarters was visited
last evening to see what action had
been decided upon with reference to
the challenge. Mr. Jamison was not
there, but Mr. Bixby aald that the letter
reached there after the adjournment of
the meeting of the central committee,
hence no action could be decided upon.
Probably no attention would be paid to
it; bat as to that he could uot state.
Candidates for Places on the lie-
publican Ticket Are Legion.
The Republican primaries this even
ing promise to be more exciting than
usual. There will be but one or two
wards in the entire city that will not
have two or more ticuets in the field.
In the First, Second and Seventh wards
the hardest fighting will be over the
legislative delegates,while in the Third,
Fourth. Sixth and Ninth the county
ticket will receive the most attention.-
In the Seventh ward the contest be
tween C. W. Hackett and Hiler H.
Ilorton has become very warm indeed,
and yesterday the Hackett men
pulled down the ticket put up under
the auspices of the McGill club and
have reconstructed it. The fight up
there seems to be between the youne
men and the old-timers, and the former
have the best of it up to the present.
In the Third ward (J. M. Orr expects
to defeat the veteran Dr. Murphy, and
in the Second \V. L. Ames is set down
as a sure winner over A. J. Hoban,
Frank Dayton, and a half-dozen others.
•In the First ward Scott McDonald will
give Charles Wallblom a stiff battle, but
the contest is against great odds, and
McDonald's winning is exceedingly
In the Fourth ward there will be a
pretty contest between Capt. Ed Bean
and his erstwhile lieutenant, Henry
Johns. The latter has tried to persuade
the public to believe that he will have
no opposition, but this is not the case.
He is opposed by the managers of Sen
ator Davis, who do not trust Johns.
They believe that at heart Johns is not
a Davis man, and for tiiis reason "Cor
die" Severance has been working on
Bean, endeavoring to induce him to
enter the race. If Bean does this he is
to be made United States marshal, to
succeed Mr. Donahouer.
The Fifth ward will have no less than
four legislative tickets in the field for
the following candidates: Barney Zim
merman. Mike Ward, Fred Kichter and
Walter Bock. The chances favor Mr.
Zimmerman. In the Eighth ward A. F.
Gauger has been as good as selected for
the sacrifice. In the Tenth, Eleventh
and country district no victim has yet
been agreed upon, although W. VV.
Clark is talked of.
The contest for places on the county
ticket will be warm. There are no end
of candidates for every place in sight,
and a great deal of bad timber has been
entered. G. P. Kttt or Charley Keller
will get the nomination for auditor,
Walt Jensen will be named for treas
urer; George N. Warner, the adminis
tration candidate for sheriff, F. W. Zoll
man for county attorney and S. E. Olm
stead for judge of probate. Doty and
Freaney are to be toned down because
they are supposed to entertain doubts
as to the quality of the reform the city
is getting at present.
What the Politicians Are Doing in
the Various Wards.
The First Ward Scandinavian-American
club had a rousing ratification meeting last
ni^ht at 815 Payne avenue. Louis Fergusen,
the legislative candidate, and the newly
nominated county ticket were given a good
send-off by several speakers.
The following ticket will be put up nt the
Republican primaries in the first ward this
evening in the interest of Scott McDonald
for the legislature: Delegates— Ed ilineiine,

will be the attraction. Mr. Turner' s reputa
tion and ability are such that he will undoubt

Baltimore, Oct. s.— The supreme
law-makinsr body of the Protestant
Episcopal church of the United States,
the general convention of 18U2, assem
bled at Emmanuel church at 10:30 this
morning, and began its three weeks'
session— a session that will be pre
eminently marked by earnest and brill

changes in the organic law of the
church, which may have the effect for
years to come.
Rt. Hey. Henry Benjamin Whipple,
bishop of Minnesota, took the place of
Bisbop Williams in conducting the com
munion service, as the senior preiate
was not strong enough to officiate. The
sermon was preached by Rt. Rev.
Richard Hooker Willmer. Near the
close of his sermon Bishop Willmer
seemed to faltei. and shortly thereafter
became ill and left the pulpit.
The house of bishops assembled at
3:30 p. m. and organized by the re-elec

Dr. John Williams, of Connecticut.
The meeting of the house was simply
for organization. The names of dead

to continue the order until disposed of.
A New Cruiser to Have One-Hun
dred-Poot Smokestack.
Washington, Oct. s.— The plans for
the new Armored Cruiser No. 3, for
which bids were asked last week, in
clude a radical innovation in the con
struction of war ships. The three
smokestacks will be each 100 feet high,
which is from thirty to forty feet higher
than the stacks of any other'war ship in
the United States navy. The increased
height will give additional draught and
do away with the necessity of forced
draught in ordinary steaming. It will
also carry the smoke and gas from the
furnaces above the military masts of
the ship and give the men in the tops a
; chance to work without -beine smoKed
out by their own people. The -high
stacks have been adopted by the Britisn
merchant steamer Scot in the trade to
the channels, and perform ..the work .
admirably, but the cruiser will be tlio
tirst naval vessel to carry them.

He Wants Every Wednesday of

Then He Wants the Railroads to
Make a Flat Rate of $1 for
the Round Trip
Chicago. Oct. 5. — Col. Elliott F.
Shepard, of the New York Mail and
Express, called on the city officers this
afternoon to introduce a plan by which
he hopes to bring 750,000 workingmen
to Chicago every Wednesday during the
world's fair te r m. The colonel had fig
ured out that a space two and a half
miles long and l.:> 00 feet wide would be
required to handle the cars and care for
the visitors.
Col. Shepard's plan, as briefly out
lined to the city officers, contemplates
making Wednesday of each week a
laboring man's day. He hopes to in
duce the railroad companies to make a
flat rate of $1 for the return trip to all
points within 1,500 miles of Chicago.
The trains could leave from the farthest
point Monday, reach Chicago Wednes
day, giving the visitors that day in the
fair and the next in the city, and" return
ing Friday morning, and land the pas
sengers home again Saturday nieht.
Anatttempt will be made to feed the
visitors en route on army rations, three
