THE CRISIS IN PRANCE.
The crisis in France is assuming an
importance which at first was hardly
expected. The overthrow of a ministry
Is an event of too frequent'occurrence
In France to excite any apprehension of
Berioud difiiculties for the republic, but
in this case the downfall of the ministry
appears to have been but an incident in
the crisis instead of its conclusion. The
situation assumes a graver aspect daily,
mid the resignation of President CABNOT
Is one of the least serious of the con
sequences that threaten. If Caunot
resigns, M. Constans will unques
tionably be chosen his successor; but
It is exceedingly doubtful if Mr. CoBT
BTA.NS could succeed any better than
can Cau.vot in calling to his ai*l a min
istry which would command the sup
port of the chamber of deputies and the
confidence of the country. The Panama
scandal has so besmirched the leaders
of the Republican faction in France that
a popular revulsion against the existing
form of government is imminent. Cox
kians is an honest man. but he does not
possess the magnetic qualities which are
essential to. ascendency over the hero
worshiping Preuch populace.-vlf Boc
i.an'c.ek were alive, he would have
his opportunity ' today. But Bou
lanoeb lies, in a suicide's grave,
and there is none to take his ' place. In
this consists the safety of the republic.
The republican leaders are discredited
mid despised, but there is no popular
idol to take advantage of the popular
tiiscontent. If among the BoußßOXs.the
Orleanists or Bonapartes tbere were
one man capable of inspiring the mer
curial French temperament with en
thusiasm in his own behalf, the repub
lic would probably succumb to the de
mand for a new order of things. But
there is no such man, so far as is at
present discernible ; and unless one is
developed out of the situation, the
French republic will emerge from its
present difliculties a trille disfigured,
but still alive and vigorous.
LOOSEN THE PURSE STRINGS.
This is the time of the year when we
hear more or less about "Christmas ex
travagance." OlTicious moralists take
it upon themselves to lecturo a weak
and misguided world on the sinfulness
of excessive generosity. "Don't be led
away by the temptation of the hour,"
they say. "Cc just before you are gen-
I'ious. Don't f i 11 the children's stocK
li.gs until the month's rent is paid and
Hie coal bill is settled."'
A truce to such rigid and frigid mor
nlizing. We recognize its justice,
but we deny its humanity. The
landlord and the coal baron have
rights which we are bound to
respect, but so have the little ones at
home. Bills should be paid, but by
some hook or crook Christinas should
be made a happy day for our loved
ones. There is no form of extrava
gance so justifiable as a little loosening
nil the purse-strings on Christmas.
Many a niiiii who thinks he cannot af
ford the cost of a merry Christmas for
his family will squander twice the
amount in a Christmas eve celebration
with '"the boys." That is the only form
ot Christmas extravagance which the
Ulobk is inclined to censure; but, in
such a case, our censure is strong
enough to recognize the merits of a coat
uf tar and leathers.
VESTED RIGHTS.
It is a familiar principle of our com
mon law that when rights have become
vested the beneficiaries shall not be
divested without their consent. The
constitutional inhibition of laws Im
pairing the obligations of contracts fol
lows this principle. Properly applied,
the rule is a just one and a necessary
Due, if we are to have commercial sta
bility. That it has been improperly ap
plied, and that courts and legislatures
have been trying to avoid the prece
dents established, every lawyer knows.
Even its proper application is made to
shelter fraud and corruption. A corpo
ration buys franchises trom a council or
legislature involving a suriender of
public rights or property, and when a
remedy by repeal is sought, it finds
safety behind the plea of vested rights
or that of the inviolability of contracts.
But it is left for t lie discomfited pa
ternaUats to reduce ihe rule to an ab
surdity by claiming that they have
vested rights in the legislation of the
protectionists. A bounty is voted a steam
ship line, an J the proposal to repeal
Ihe act is met with the claim that the
bounty was a contract. It is gravely
argued that the various industries bene
fited by the McKini.ky act, havlug ad
justed their business to it, are entitled
to its continuance ou the principle of
v.'sic 1 rights. With equal audacity one

sugar he makes because a congress
promised it, and he has embarked iv the
business upon the strength of it. Rea
soning the same way. and with equal if
not greater plausibility, officers have
objected to a reduction of their salaries
during the term for wiiich they.were
elected because they had a vested right
to the salary during their term. But
courts have made short work of that
plea, and there is no doubt that they will
make as summary disposal of the claim
of the bounty-fed industries.shoulU they

paternalism.
KXIT MR. FKIG.
The state canvassing board yesterday
canvassed the votes of the Seventh con
gressional district and directed a certifi
cate to issue to H. E. Bock, tlie Topulist
candidate. Mr. Fi;m; was present at the
canvass with his attorney, and objected
to the votes of Marshall county being
counted for Mr. BoKN, on the ground
that on the ballots used in that county
his name was 11. E. Boen while in all
the other counties it was Haldob E.
Boen. Mr. Feio evidently relied on
the partisan relations of the major part
of the board to give him the certilicate
on this threadbare technicality, and
must have been deeply grieved at the
contemptuous manner in which their
honors brushed aside his cobwebs.
Mr. Feio did not, of course, expect
to hold the seat thus obtained. He
knew, if he is capable of knowing so
much, that the house of representatives
would make very short work of his case.
But Mr. FEIO had heard somewhere,
possibly had read somewhere, of men
who had received certificates which the
house had refused to recognize, and that
the ousted member had been allowed a
liberal stun for his expenses, beside tiie
.salary lie might draw pending the de
cision. To Mr. Feio, who, we believe,
when he is not in pursuit of political
place, makes his livelihood by cultivat
ing a small farm up in Kaudiyohi coun
ty, this prospect was very alluring, and
was no doubt the controlling motive in
this attempt to get Mr. Boen's seat on
the flimsiest of pretexts. Mr. Feig can
now retire to the county with the music
al name and muse on the utility of
tricks in the game of politics; unless,
indeed, he should think his services to
the party demanded recognition in some
position in the legislature- say door
keeper to a cloak room, for instance.
PROHIBITION BY DETAIL.
Tne Prohibitionists, having failed of
success by direct assault, are sapping
and mining. They are now busily en
gaged in gathering their forces for the
first line of approach, and will present
and try to force through a bill extending
local option to the counties. Two years
ago they were foiled in their efforts ni
this direction by the Democrats of the
house, but they evidently regard the
presence ot a Republican majority as
favoring them. They do not build with
out reason. Wherever prohibition has
obtained a footing it was through that
party. And very properly. There is no
difference, save in degree, between the
spirit which wouldlmake men sober by
legislation and that which would make
wealth by the same means. Prohibition
is only the sentimental side of protec
tion, and paternalism is their common
mother.
It is not probable that their effort
will he crowned with success. The
Democrats will oppose it on principle.
Not that they oppose sobriety, nor that
they favor drunkenness, but because
they do not believe it a proper function
of government; because they believe it
an unwarranted interference with the
freedom of the citizen; because it be
longs to the field of moral suasion and
because coercion is useless and futile.
On the other hand, the Republicans will
light shy of iti They will see in it but
a step towards state prohibition, and
the result in those states where their
party has committed Uself to that cause
is not such as to commend it as a
strengthening plaster for its weakening
back. Tne Populists will be divided,
but there are not enough of them to
make it of much importance what they
will or will not do. So the Globe be
lieves, as it hopes, that county option
will be but an iridescent dream.
TUE SPRINGER BILL.
The Chicago Tribune comments fa
vorably on the bill ot Mr. Spbingeb for
electoral representation of the minority
parties in a state, but it differs ma
terially from the Globe in its concep
tion of the use to be made of the frac
tions, minor or major, over the electoral
quota. Illustrating the operation of
the bill by the recent vote of that state,
it finds that the unit of representation
in the electoral vote is o(i,400. the total
vote being 873,000. Dividing HARRI
SON'S vote by the unit would give him
10 electoral votes, with a remainder of
35,288. Cleveland would set n votes,
with a remainder of 25,841. Weaver's
vote was 25,870, and BIDWELL's 22,247.
'•Therefore," the Tribune concludes,
"the board would have certified that
Illinois had cast 12 votes for Cleve
land, 11 for Harrison and 1 for
Weaver."
Just on what principle the Tribune fig
ures that Weavei: with 25.000 votes and
Cleveland with a_ similar remainder
get one electoral vote each, while Bid-
WELL with 23,000 gets none, is hard to
perceive. On that of the use of major
fractions all candidates would get one
each, which would bring the total above
the state's quota. Bidwell's major
fraction is just as much entitled to rep
resentation as is either of the others, if
justice is the purpose of the Mil, and
just as much as WEAVER is entitled
to one.
The plan suggested by the (tLobe is
more equitable. By it each would get
that fractional part of an electoral vote
resulting from the division of his re
mainder by the electoral unit. Mr.
Weaver would have .7 of a vote and
Mr. Bidwell .0. Thus each candidate
would receive exactly the part of
the electoral vote of the state to which
he was entitled, and the minorities
would all have their proper representa
tion.
RLAIN WORDS, BUT TRUE.
The Chicago Herald has scant regard
for the Eastern Democrats, or for any
of them anywhere, who yet tremble and
shiver at the thought of free trade. It
says, with the pomtedness of a cam
bric needle, "if avowed protection is a
fraud and a cheat, then incidental pro
tection is an incidental fraud and
cheat." Minnesota Democrats have
been talking that way for a number of
years, but it will fall harshly on the
ears of those Eastern doughfaces who
want just a trifle less protection than
the Republicans do. The fact is that
Democratic arguments have educated
the mnss of the party to think: just as
the Herald does. The result of our ar
guments against protection parallel
that of the Republicans' against slav
ery. Jusi as thes^' latter ran on logical
lines to the abolition of slavery, so ours
run to the abolition of tariffs. When
the time tomes to put on the brakes and
slow the movement of tin: party down

found that the headway is too great,
and it will run rcsistlessly to the last

that any taritf is a tax on what men eat
and wear, and that wealth escapes, and
we will find that they have learned too
much to stop short of the logical end.

tax on spirits while abolishing protection is
the logical antithesis.

ROYAL GRAXDMAMA'S GIFT
The Sweet Little Pony Is a Be
loved Playmate for the Little
Battenhergs.
Little Princess Victoria, one of the
queen of England's favorite grandchil
dren, .has a "dear little pony," which I
know every one of you would just "love
to have." The queen, for whom this
little granddaughter is named, is a most
loving and indulgent grandma, it seems,
and loves to give the little ones jolly
surprises every once and a while. For
some years the children of the Duke and
Duchess of Connaught (the duke is one
of the queen's younger sons) spent
much time with the queen during their
parent's absence In India, while the
Duchess of Albany's boy and girl are
constantly at court. But her majesty's
most frequent companions are the lit
tle Prince and Princees of Battenberg,
as they are the children of the daughter
who has scarcely been parted from the
queen throughout life.
Her majesty delights in iriving chil
dren's parties, and her latest gift to the
juvenile Battenbergs has been a pretty
colored pony. The children were
driviug in Windsor one day recently
when they met Messrs. Saneers' circus
passine through the town. Charmed
>.with the show, they gave an animated
description to the queen, who imme
diately requested the circus to parade
in the royal grounds for the little folks'
amusement. .
One of the animals in the collection
so pleased the children tnat she pur
chased the cream-colored .pony, which
the little princess always delighted; to '
ride. The creature is a great pet. and
when the royal party was at Osborne
one of the children rode the pony every
morning. . ' ' -'_ " "-".-. ;■

It is now Congressman-Elect Boen, of
the Seventh district, and he has the per
mission of the state canvassing board
to writ^* < name "Haldor E. Boen" or
"11. E. soen," as may bo most pleasing
to him.
The only portion of the proceedings
of the meeting of the state canvassing
board possessed of the slightest interest
was the disposal of the claims of lion.
Henry Feig for the certificate of elec
tion as a member of congress tor the
Seventh district. The fact that Mr.
Feig would attempt to secure the cer
tificate and thus throw Mr. Boen to the
expense of acontest,had been widelyad
vertseid.and many people expected that
the attempt would amount to something .
In this they were disappointed, as the
GLOBE ail-along predicted they would
be. Mr. Feig had no case and the can
vassing board dismissed his claims with
scant courtesy.
As stated in the Gr.OBK several weeks
aeo, the sole point made by Mr. Feig's
attorney, Henry Johns, of this city, was
that the state canvasstns board had not
the powpr to add together the votes cast
for 11. E. Boen and llaldor E. Boen,
although knowing that these two names
belonged to one and the same person.
In two counties of the district,
Marshall and Wilken, the cdunty
auditor placed Mr. Boen on the
official ballot as U. E. Boen
instead of Haldor E. Boen as it appeared
in the nomination papers sent to them.
In the case of the Marshall county of
ficial it seems that he had prepaied the
"copy" tor the printer before Mr. Boen
filed his certiiicate, and knowing him
well as 11. E. Boen, so wrote the name.
When the certificate arrived he noticed
the difference, but thinking it a niatlgr
of no moment made no change. JSfir.-
Lange. the auditor of Marshall county,
was present yesterday morning to ex
ulain this mistake if necessary. The
auditor of Wilkin county did uot ap
pear, but the mistake there probably
arose in the same manner. Had the
canvassing board taken the view that
Mr. Feig's attorney demanded, of course
the certificate would have been given
to Mr, Feig, absurd though the claim
was.
When Judge Collins announced that
the board was ready to hear the attor
neys in the matter, Hon. John W.
Mason, Mr. Boen's attorney, stepped
forward and cleverly threw the burden
of contestant upon Mr. Feig. He said
it would be proper for the board to de
cide the order in which counsel would
be heard, adding that as Mr. Feig ap
peared as a contestant it would be
proper to hear his representative first.
This was agreed upon, and the fair
haired Henry Johns stepped forward.
'•We-admit,' he said, "that H. B. Boen
and Hnldor E. Boen are oue and the same
person, but claim that the rulings of the
courts of all the states under statutes similar
to ours give a canvassing t.oard uo power to
settle such a question. The duties of this
board arp simply to add up the returns sent
in from the various counties and declare the
result accordingly."
Mr. Johns re»d from a Massachusetts
ca«e, and also referred to the Mc-
Knley - Wallace contest of some
years ago in Ohio. In the latter
the canvassing board declined to
count ballots for Maj. Wallace be
cause of mistakes in spelling and errors
in the name, although the intention of
thp voter was plain. The house of rep
resentatives at Washington promptly
undid this wrong, as Mr. Johns inti-.
mated they would in the case in hand.
The weakness of Mr. Johns' argu
ment impressed his hearers, but under
"the Keen and merciless logic of Mr.
, Mason it shortly became absurd. In
opening the case Mr. Mason said:
"It seems to me that the counsel has
given away his case alieady. He has ad
mitted that U. E. Boen is the same per
son as Hnldor E. Boen, and this conces
sion leaves him no .-.round upon which to
sia id."
Here Mr. Mason read from the elec-
Ltlou law of the state.in which the state
ment is plainly made that "persons,"
1 and not names are to he voted for by
the people. The Massachusetts ease
was taken up, and declared not iti
point.
-But,"' Mid Mr. Mason, "in this Massachu
setts case is a reference that is in point.'"
. In the New York case the canvassing
board had refused to count votes csst
for'M. Clark for Mcses Clark, and
the court in-deciding the case declared
that the canvassing board should have
counted votes cast tor M. M. Clark for
■Vloses Clark, and on this decision de
cided Moses Clark entitled to the otlice.
. Mr. Mason is a keen, incisive and pol
ished speaker, and, while his argument
was not lengihy, every point was care
fully covered-, and when lie closed the
chief justice leaned over and whispered
something to Judges. Collins, Kelly and
Lochren and Secretary of State livowir,
-and then, -with a waveofhia hand, set
tled the Fei»S contest.
"The votes cast for Mr. Boen will be
so counted," he said.

BLOW AT THE WHISKY TIIUST.
It Is Beaten in a Suit Which In-
volves $15,000,000.
CaiCAOO, Dec. '20.— William Isew
burger this afternoon obtained judg
ment against the Distillers' and Cattle
Feeders' company, commonly known as
the whisky trust, for *10'J and interest.
If this is sustained the precedent will,
it is said. deprive the trust
of. some 51 5, 000.000 of consumers'
money. - The whisky trust has a
regulation by which its goods are sold
tit an advance of 5 cents above the
actual market price. Rebate vouchers
are issued for tiie excess, and those are
p:ud. providing the holder for six
months after buys all his goods from
the trust. The vouchers on which the
pre'eeut case is brought were held by
Xewhurger, having been assigned to
him by a firm which had not bought
all its goods from the whisky trust.
The trust, therefore, refused to
honor the rebate vouchers. As a result
of today's decision other suits will be
begun in the higher courts for amounts
varying from ?5 to $10,000. The effort
is not only being made for the purpose
of obtaining the money, but is also in
tended to bring about an open market,
it being supposed that other distillers
opposed to the trust will start up in op
position and that lower prices will pre
vail. .

LAID TO POISON.
Mysterious Deaths of Arkansas
Convict Laborers.
Helkna, Ark,, Dec. 20.— There is
great excitement here over the sudden
and unexplained death of fouT convicts
and the probably fatal sickness of a
dozen more, all in the camp of S. M.
Apperson, a contractor, who is doing
work here for the St. Louis, Iron Moun
tain & Southern railway. About 110
convicts were brought here last Mon
day. The men, under the escort of a
dozen armed guards, have been at work
all the week throwing up the roadbed
for the new tracks of the railroad.
There are a. large number of unem
ployed laborers in and around this city,
and they protested very strongly against
the introduction of convicts to do this
work when they were all idle, and a
numerously signed petition was pre
sented to one of the county officers, but.
of course, lie could do nothing. The
matter was thousrlit to have about died
out, when no less than eighteen of the
convicts were suddenly stricken yester
day morning with an illness which is
said to present strong evidence of ar
senical poisoning. Four of them are now
dead and three others will be dead be
fore morning. Doctors were summoned
and ministered to the wants of the sick
men, but without avail.
Lrni.i: Ro( Ark., Dec. 20.— 1t has
developed that the cause of the sudden
death among the convicts at Helena,
Ark., was arsenical poisoning, though
how it was administered and by whom
is yet a matter ot conjecture. A chemist
today examined the stomach of Kobert
Lane, one of the tirst convicts who died,
and whose stomach was selected
by the physicians for the experiment,
and found large quantities of ar
senic. This established without
a doubt the poisoning theory. About -.1
o'clock this morning ten more of the
convicts were taken suddenly ill and
, the physicians summoned. One more
man died last night aud another this
morning, making six deaths in all. The
catup was broken up this morning and
the convicts taken away. The whole
state is in. excitement. Tne poisoning
was not confined to convicts. Among
those dangerously ill are Capt. Duulap
and one of the guards. lJunlap is ex
warden of the penitentiary.

How Young Foerstel Covered Up
His Peculations.
St. Louis, Dec. 20.— 1n the city treas
ury scandal today's developments
•simply added confirmation to what be
came known yesterday. The sluortage
lias remained at the figures given,
but a new examination and check
ing of accounts, tiiis one dating
back to the last official cancella
tion of redeemed bonds and coupons
in July last, is in progress and when
completed the exact condition of the
city's linanees will be known. Lax of
ficial conduct is becoming involved in
the situation. As already developed
the comptroller's department has in
its frequent checkings taken the treas
ury's statement of the contents
or coupon packages, etc., aim there
in it is now known the crime was con
cealed. In addition, the ways and
means committee of the council is em
powered by the charter to cancel alll
city bonds and coupons as often as there
is any necessity, not less often than
every thirty days, but it seems to have
been quite diHicuit to gatiier this trio
of f25-a-rnonth statesmen together
with any regularity, and this fact
made it possible tot young
Foerstel to* hide his doings
to a certain extent. Last Saturday,
however, he was notified :by Assistant
Comptroller Gabel that his accounts
would be looked into by the committee
Monday. He realized that lie was in
desperate straits, and knew that liis
failure to produce the required bonds
would disgrace him for life. Unable to
face the impending calamity, he select
ed suicide as the easiest method of es
cape. The inqttest today over . the re
mains ot the suicide wiis a formal affair,

WYOMING DEMOCRATS
Gain a Pronounced Victory Before
The Supreme Court.
Cheyexne. Wyo., Dec. 20.— Another
pronounced victory was gained by tlie
Democrats in the supreme court here
today. The Republicans had- called
upon the court. to include the governor
in the mandamus proceedings. This
was done to complicate the case in the
hope of disconcerting the Democrats by
forcing them to recognize Bar
ber or make a fifht for Osborne, the
rightful governor. "The court decided
that the governor need not be a party
to a suit against the state canvassing
board. It would be presumed in the ab
sence of allegations to the contrary that
the count was legally conducted. It
was announced from the bench that the
supreme court would refuse to go into
the matter of the count of Ilanna 'pre
cinct in Carbon county. Jt would con
fine itself entirely to the state
canvass and to questions of the priina
facie leiial returns before the board.
The IJepublieans will tomorrow offer a
demurrer, claiming that the mandamus
petitioners are not entitled to tho relief
which they asked. It is believed that
tnis is tliu last of the filibustering, and
that the case will be heard oi: Thursday
its merits. It will th.CE be decided
whether a county canvassing board con
sists of three members or one.

The folding of a wrap around shoulders
that begin to be cliilly when limbs are
too tired to go after a shawl conveys
more meaning than the mere action
shows to the onlooker. It gives the
weary mortal a sense of protecting,
watcuful care that is more sooth
ing than words when heart and
brain are too exhausted for active dem
onstrations. A gentle touch, a caress
at an unlooked-for moment, the thou
sand and one little attentions that a
woman revels in. are so much more
valuable to her ti;;:-. to the giver that,
if her heart could De read, surely
there would be more of tins

There is many a rest on the road of lite.
If we only \ t- nuld stop to take it;
And many a tone from the better land.
It the querulous heart would wnke it.
To the sunny soul that is full of hope.
And whose beauiiful trust ne'er failetb,
The grass is green and the (lowers are bright,
Though the wiutry storm Drevailetb.
Better to hope, thoush the Honda hang low,
And to keeD the eyes stiil lifted;
For the sweet blue sky will soon peep
through.
When the ominous clouds are drifted.
There was never a night without a day,
Nor an evening without a morning;
And in the darkest hour, trie proverb goes.
Is the hotrr before the dawning.
There is many a gem in the with of life,
Which we pass in our idle pleasure.
That is richer far than the Jeweled crown.
Or the miser's hoarded treasure.
It may bp the love of a little child.
Or a mother's prayer to heaven.
Or only a beggar's grateful thanks
For a cup o* water given.
Better to weave in the web of life
A bright and golden filling.
And to do God's work with a ready heart.
And hands thttare swift und willing.
Than to snap the delicate silver threads
Of our curious lives asunder.
And then heaven blame for the tangled
ends.
And sit to grieve and wonder.
