The ways of the modern evangelist
are past finding out, if one may ba per
mitted to refer to a Scriptural quotation
and apply it to one of these peripatetic
apostles. He is an interesting study,
both from the moral and the. metaphys
ical point of view, and in many ways he
defies the standards by which we have
come to judge the ordinary layman.
And let it be understood that he does
an immense amount of good in the
course of .his ministrations. He often
kindles a great fire which seems now
and again to burn beyond the point
of safety, but in the conflagra
tion much chaff and stubbie and
many weeds are consumed, and
combustible sins go up in smoke.
Those who sit in the seat of the scorn
ful say of him that he places an undue
emphasis upon the Scriptural statement
that the laborer is worthy of his hire,
and receives large perquisites for his
work; but this is no sin, even if it be
found to be true, for no man in this
world is obliged to exert himself for the
good of his fellows without compensa
tion, and it is the natural prerogative of
every man to make the best bargain
that he can. It is not at all necessary
to compute, per capita, the cost of the
souls which may be saved, Indeed, it
would be a degrading computation,
arguing a certain flippancy and irrev
erence on the part of the arithmetician
who should make it.
An interesting story of an evangelist
comes from the East, ana is of sufficient
consequence, aside from the ludicrous
incidents, to warrant the drawing of cer
tain conclusions. If the story is cor
rectly reported, Rev. Irvine went down
irom Niagara Falls to Baltimore to hold
revival meetings at a mission. He had
indorsements from the bishops of the
Methodist church, and was getting on
with great success when the ladies of
ths mission proceeded to arrange for a
church fair. Now it is possible that the
preacher had acquired a habit of con
tention from livintr within tiie hearing
of the mighty waterfall of Niagara.
Perhaps the siirtit of the warring waters
had filled his soul with the deadly
ecstasy of combat and made him ready
for a battle off-hand. Be that as it may,
he made war 011 the poor women WtlO
had planned the church fair; he scored
them unmercifully with all the invec
tive of which a low and mean nature is
capable; he insulted them with tiie
statement that lie would sooner see a
saloon opened in the church building,
than a fair, and denounced all church
fans as the devil's work. A very
uioderate criticism on this gentle
man would be that he was neither a
Christian nor a gentleman, and he
should have been kicked for using in
sulting language to women.
jJut there is even a more serious mat
ter than this in his statement, provid
ing, of course, that he has been re
ported correctly. His expressed pref
erence for the saloon in comparison
with the church fair shows the animus
which dwells in the bosom of the mod
ern reformers and alleged philanthro
pists. They are ready to ride their
hobbies 111 the most merciless fashion,
even over the precipice ot destruction,
lather than abate one jot of the pride of
their order. This vulgar fellow would
prefer to see a saloon in the house of
prayer rather than not train his point;
the stubbornness of the evil one was in
him. [Us of a piece with the position
of the good cruel people who would pre
fer to see the rum trade absolutely un
checked if they may not have their im
practicable schemes backed up by the
stroiis am, of the law. Death to those
who oppose us; rule or "ruin" is tiie cry
which animates these people. On, or.,
ever on, faster and faster, let us drive
our philanthropic nags to destruction
if we must; but let us never dismount
nor show mercy, and if the poor women
with th^ir pitiful cnurch fairs stand in

score their hearts with the lightnings
from Heaven. Fancy such men as mes
sengers from Heaven. It was this sama
spirit which led victims to the stake and
scaffold. Sometimes it seems as though
we ought to thank Heaven for a little
ordinary charity of un-Ciiristian men,
a charity or indulgence which men of
the world exercise with no great effort.
It is a singular thing, but it is true,
that worldly thou-ht and worldly ac
tion serve to mitigate the severity of

MR. LOWKY PAIK.
The proposition made by Mr. Low r.v
to the special common council commit
tee Friday afternoon seems eminently
fair. Xo one in .St. Paul should harbor
a desire to cripple the street railway
company. It is not to our interests
to do so. And when Mr. Loavky meets
us with as fair measures as those pro
posed, he should have equally as fair
treatment. lie proposes to boulevard
University avenue, to change the East
Seventh street cable line into an elec
tric so that all Dayton's bluff lines may
have direct access to the center of the
city, to run open «ars on all lines in
summer, and to do various other things
equally as desirable. He makes some
conditions which are not unreasonable.
The condition which may meet some
opposition is the one abolishing trans
fers on the interurban through travel.
But, as he says. 10 cents from the heart
of Minneapolis to the heart of Si. Paul
is a pretty cheap ride. And when it is
considered that a large majority of the
people who ride on these cars go clear
through, it can readily be seen that no
irreat amount of money is taken in on
any trip. In the summer time it can be
seen that even with the immense loads
generally carried a car is doing exceed
ingly well to receive |10 going one way.
In the winter time a majority of the
cars do not take in $5 going one way. It
can readily be seen wtth-this statement
that Mr. Lowry is not receiving a very
large interest on the money invested in
the line and power houses, when the
money must also cover the damagj
cases he is so frequently called upon to
A STATE FLOWER;
The senate and the house, moved by
the beautifully sentimental appeal or
the ladies of the woman's auxiliary of
the world's fair, have granted their re
quest, and- adopted the lady slipper as
the ilower of the state. Only esthetic
sentiments moved the ladies to select
this from the flora of the state as its
emblem. Its modesty, its retiring hab
its and its quaint beauty appealed to
them and won them. But with the
"grave and reverend seigniors," with
their practical notions and contempt for
.the mere frills and embellishments of
life, it is probable that they saw in this
flower, or rather in its name, re ollec
tions of those early days when the lady's
slipper played a frequent and n t unin
fluential part in their develo} ment and

lie is not overly modest, lie does not
prefer the shaded woods for habitat.
He is not retiring. lie does not hide his
charm behind any overhanging leaf.
The state lias a Sower which fully
typifies ita people. It is not beautiful;
neither are they. It is not modest; nor
are they. Like them, it cams with the
pioneers. As they brushed aside and
away the red men to make room for
themselves, so this flower drove back
the wild flowers of the prairies and
took their piacc. It is pugnacious, per
sistent, flourishing under adversity.
Like our people, it is an Indefatieable
explorer. Beginning with them on the
banks of the Mississippi, it has like
them spread over the state and occupied
it. Frosts and drouths, potato bugs and
the locust, break their destructive forces
on it in vain. It grows and blooms and
gives its seeds to the air for the sawing,
indifferent to all these discouragements,
just as the men who have made Min
nesota have done. It is the first to greet
us in the spring and lingers late, and it
gives to our tables, hungry with the
lons winter's abstinence from the green
things of the garden aud the field, their
first dish of ''greens." The Qlobe
names the dandelion as the fitting
flower of tiie state, and moves to amend
the joint resolution by substituting it
for tiie lady slipper.
CHAIRMAN SPRINGER OS THE
The fact that Mr. Springer is the
present chairman of the 'ways and
means committee, and may be the
chairman of that committee in the Fifty
third congress, lends additional interest
to his article, "How to Revise the Tar

that which any article on this topic
would have from a gentlemen of his ex
Mr. SruixoEß devote the greater part
of his article to a description of the
Wai,k::i; tariff of '40. ami 'to the devel
opment of trade under it, from which
the conclusion follows that, in his opin
ion, there will be no novel method of
revision adopted, but that old. tried and
proved paths will be trod by the coining
congress. Secretary Walkeii laid
down six principles of construction tot
the measure which bears his name. As
the attention of the country now turns
from the consideration of the merits of
a revenue and a protective tariff, hav
ing decided for the former, to the proc
ess of getting back to the revenue
basis, a statement of the Walkkii
principles will be of use and interest.
They were: First— That no more
money should be collected than is nec
essary for the wants of the government
Second— no duty be imposed on
any article above the lowest rate which i
will yield the largest amount of rev- !
Third— That below such rate discrim
inations may be made, descending in
the scale of duties; or, for imperative
reasons, the article may be put on the
Fourth— the maximum revenue
duty should be placed on luxuries.
Fifth— all niinimuins and all
specific duties should be abolished, and
ad valorem duties substituted in their
place— care being taken to guard against
fraudulent invoices and undervalua
tion, and to assess the duty o;i the
actual market value.
Sixth— That the duty shall b3 so im
posed as to operate equally as possible
throughout the Union,- discriminating
neither for nor against any section.
The free list will be much larger in
the bill which the next house will pass
than it was under the Walker act.

given their raw material free to enable
them to compete freely abroad. Wood,
wool, iron and all the othir articles
crude or partly m ide, lying at the base
of. the great industries, paid tribute

It is probable, too, that the recom

adopted, but before that is done we will
have over azain the wrangle over the
relative merits of the ad valorem and
specific taxes which was the bone of

the grim reaper, but the Infants are.

but the" other day was called on to note,
but not lament, the death of one of
these infants; and now, before the sobs
have ceased, it is pained to have to
chronicle the demise of another, which
has passed away with almost its first
breath and before a spoonful of nourish
ment could be carried to its lips.
The pig tin industry is no more. It
opened auspiciously, with blare of bands
and bluster and brag. Wales and the
straits were defied. Harney Peak and
the Temescal were to liberate us from
the thraldom of the tin mines of foreign
lands. With that singular contempt for
cheapness which characterizes the ad
herents of the "American system," con
gress forthwith hastened to make that
dear which nature intended we should
have cheapV. ana clapped on a tax on
imports of tin of four cents a pound,
making the tax take effect when it was
thought the mines would be developed.
The embryo infant played before
birth a part in politics. It. gave to
the country a new genus— the tin
plate liar. The Temescal turned
out. a few tons of tin, and the fact
was heralded as a proof of the wis
dom of McKinleyism. The Ilarney Peak
mines were in a state of great activity,
busily engaged in getting just ready to
produce something. Both mines were
duly syndicated with foreign" capital.
We were sroing to supply the world with

miners and workmen, and shuts down
the mills and boards up the mines, and

us only the consolation of D arrow's

what a great hog it would have been

I saw an extraordinary sight this week
which I think should be reoofted to the
historical society. May be it is not too
late to catch it and preserve it; if too
late for preservation, 1 hope a record of
this oheiioniena will be placed amongst
our Indian traditions. I fear an unbe
lieving public will set it down as "only
a tradition"— l think "tradition sounds
so much prettier than "lie." Any one
subject to heart disease had better stop
here and read no further; the shock
may make their hearts jump out of
their mouths, and I run not willing to
figure in a damage suit, just be
cause I am kind enough to give
the public the bmien* t of my experience
1 saw a red lint street cur stove ! Now.
of course, you don't believe that, and I
cannot say in which car it was. If I
did so. that line would become block
aded by the multitude rushing to see
such a sight. 1 think it has never oc
curred in any city before, and would be
a better advertisement for St. Paul
than an ice palace or a cyclone. When
that stove I was so overcome
with astonishment, awe and several
other emotions which I did not pause to
analyze, that I completely forgot my
street car manners and walked the
length of that car without treading upon
any one's toes, knocking any babies
from their mother's arms or stumbling
over any market baskets. Don't
flatter yourselves n hot stove is
going to be a common occurrence,
I inquired at headquarters for the cause
of this extravagance, tvith a little ray of
hope intruding itself into my frozen
body, only to learn "that the door had
become fastened and refused to open
until the coil on the inside was en
tirely consumed ;" consequently it could
not be subjected to the usual squelcii
inff process that street enr stoves have
to go through if they dare show the
faintest siirns of life or heat. That
liberal conductor has been dismissed
for the "arood of the service" and the
discomfort of the traveling public, and
the stove ornaments an ash heap. Won't
the public step forward and take up a
collection to "kppp that stove and con
ductor in luxury until they reach a
better land, where heat will "be a drug
on the market instead of a luxury?
Speaking of street cars reminds me of
how much is written and said about
men who do not offer women a seat.
Couldn't some women mend their own
manners a trifle and t-t'ip railing against
the sterner sex? I have see girls outer
a car and glare at the males who kept
their seats, and when t.ney have finally
secured seats themselves and an elderly
lady gets into the car, do they offer her
a seat? Not usually. But last week I
did see one of St. Paul's sweetest wom
en rise and offer an old woman !u>r seat,
but before the latter could accept a pert
little miss had secured the prize, and
both women had to stand. Most men
consider it a pleasure to srive a lady a
seat, but woe betide the elderly female
who happens upon a car full of frirls.
She is lucky if she is allowed to hang
on to the rear platform. E. 11. R.

STATE PRESS NOTES.

to the legislature in the following sar
castic iiiannei :
Six bills for tinkering the state con
stitution, already introduced, with sev

dicate that the present is a very wise
legislature. It is understood also that it
will recommend some revisions of the
United States constitution, which it
deems imperative. Afterwards, if it lias
any leisure time, it will try its hand at
straightening out the Westminster con
fession of faith, to the end of giving
.several piominent churches good and
Tlie Belle Plaiue Herald tries its
hand at scoring the methods of the leg
islature, as follows:
As we predicted last wjek, the jun

have already commenced, and will no
aoubt be kept up to thu end. Nothing
more senseless could well be imagined
than sending members of the legisla
ture around tiie state as a kind of pt-r
--anibulating-biped menagerie. No one
expects or professes to expect any
earthly sort of practical utility from
these exhibitions which could be laugh
iiul\ enjoyed by tiie public if they were
not so expensive to the people.
The Waseca Radical is pleased with
the bill regulating express companies.
Those bills introduced In the legisla
ture regulating and controlling tiie ex
press companies are correct, and should
become laws. Next to the teie<rrauh

DICK TUKI'iVS RIDE.
Remarkable Feats of Ijons-Dis
tanco Hiding in Other Days.
Foremost among English feats of
horsemanship we have one which for
generations lias been represented in the
circus ring. Dick Turpin's famous ride
from London to York has taken its
place among nursery legends; neverthe
less, it was actually performed, and
stands as a record of its kind. The
highwayman, riding with the very best
reason in the world— the safety of his
neck — covered the distance of over 200
miles in a littie under twelve hours.
This performance stands alone as the
loudest and fastest journey ever made
on the same horse. Moat of the long
rides of which record exists have been
made tor wagers; such records are
Squire Osbaldestone's undertaking to
ride moo miles in ten hours, which lie
accomplished on the sth of November,
1831, is one of the most remarkable
feats of endurance in the saddle, and
has the rnjjritof freedom from cruelty.
The squire rode his race on the New
market race course, changing his horse
every fourth mile. Four miles is a safe
limit for such a purpose, as that splen
did horseman knew. Three-mile Japs
could have been covered in time rela
tively a little better, but a sound horse
in fair training could do his
four miles without distress in
such time as to make that distance,
with the consequent reduction in the
number of changes, the most suitable
for the purpose. Mr. Osbaldestone used
sixteen horses for his task, and rode
standing in his stirrups like a jockey,
while he kept his mount at best speed
from start to finish of its four-mile heat,
having; quite a "set-to" with his pace
.maker at the end of each. The squire
was a 'hard man, and in good training,
so suffered no bad effects from his exer
tions. ..■; -~r. ] -J
A MEAL FOR A KING.
Emperor William's Appetite for
This story is circulating in Europe:
Emperor William, while out hunting in
the large forest, found himself three
miles from the luncheon baskets when
he began to grow hungry. He there
fore asked his companion. Count Dolma,
if there was nothing at all eatabiH in
the neighborhood, and the count
remembered that there was a small
farm not far away. Thither they
went, and the woman of the house
told them she had only milk, bread, but
ter, and wurst (sausage) to set before
them, and very little of that. "Milk,
bread, butter and wurst!" exclaimed his
majesty, "why that is a meal to set be
fore a Kins;!" and he set to with such
good will that soon only a few fragments
remained. "And now. my good woman."
said the emperor, taking a golden double
eagle from his pocket and placing it in
the hands of the farmer's wife, "go and
buy yourself more wurst and more
bread, and if you can afford it out of
the change a 20 cent picture ot the
kaiser, for you can then point to it and
say: 'I once saved that poor man from
Not unto every heart is God's good gift
Of simple tenderness allowed; we meet
With love in many fashions when wo lift
First to our lips life's waters bitter sweet.
Love comes upon us with resistless power
Of curbless passion, aud with headstrong
It plays around like April's breeze and
Or calmly flows, a rapid stream, aud still,
It comes with blessedness unto the heart
That welcomes it aright, or— bitter fate:—
It wrings the bosom with so fierce a smart,
That love, we cry, it crueler than fate.
And then, ah me, when love has ceased to
Our broken hearts cry out for tenderness
We long for tenderness like that which hung
About us, lying on our mother's breast;
A selfish feeling, that no pen or tongue
Can praise aright, since silence sings its
A love, as far removed from passion's heat
As from the dullness of its dying fire;
A lone to lean on when the failing feet
Begin to totter and the eyes to tire. '
In youth's brief heyday hottest love we seek,
The reddest rose we grasp — but wlieu it
God grant later blossoms, violets meek.
May spring for us beneath life's autumn
God grant that some loving one be near to
Our weary. way with simple tenderness.

GLARKSON IS BIIIEB.
Ferocious Attack on Har
rison Because of Jackson's
He Calls It a Betrayal of
Party Faith and Public
An Act of Party Perfidy Little
Short of Moral
Republican Senators Asked
to Refuse to Vote to
Dcs Moixes, Feb. 4.— A bitter attack
on President Harrison, because of his
appointment of Ilovvell E. .Jackson to
the supreme court bench, appeared in
the lowa State JJeirister today over the
signature of .James S. Clarusou. ll is
in part as follows:
"New York, Feb. 4— Your request
for an article or dispatch from mi on
the appointment of Judge Jackson to
the supreme bench finds me in a sick
room, but 1 cannot refuse to speak on
the subject. President Harrison's
act in appointing a Southern states'
right Democrat to this high
court of last resort in the present
critical national situation is a gross be
trayal of public trust and party faith.
Indeed, in my judgment, it is an act of
party perfidy little short of a moral
crime. Alone of all branches of the
government, the judiciary stands be
tween the South and its avowed hostil
ity to the principles of all systems mid
policies adopted by the government and
accepted by the great body of American
Tljo Result of tlit War.
It remains, or but for this act of a
Republican, would have remained, for
four years as the one defense of the
government against the reactionary
policies of the South and us the only
protection to the .Republicans of the
Southern states, whoso helpless
ness under the Democratic rule
'•President Harrison knows to-day
belter than any man in the land, for he
has borne for four years their piteous
and ineffectual appeals for protection
in their right to vote as citizens, in their
right to defense in the courts, and in
their rights of property and life itself.
For even when he had for two years a
Republican congress to support him he
was not able, even with such supreme
national power, to enable even tiie Unit
ed States courts in the South either to
execute the laws of the nation or en
force their processes. Not only this,
but President Harrison was i.ot able,
with a Republican congress and cabine
and a Republican supreme court, to
protect the lives of his own officials in
the discharge of their duties in the
South, or families of the victims left
to a bitter life of poverty and ostracism.
"That a Republican "president, when
the South, neither in its press nor by
any public utterance of its people, con
demns outrages on thefneuro, should, in
A Supreme Jud<>e
from tin: South, choose a man who rep
resents such cruelty to the nesrro, and
that ho should do it on the very day
after a negro had been burned alive,
with the consent of the state and au
thorities in that state, makes the
danger both unaccountable and more
to be condemned. Whether this act
of President Harrison, cub greatest
solicism in party politics ever connnit
niitted by any president, and the first
instance / since the foundation of the
Republican party of a president se
lecting for the supremo court a man of
the opposite party, was done in personal
pique over his own defeat or from what
ever motive or cause, the Republican
party owes it to the party of Lincoln,
Grant and Blame to condemn it. To
accept and confirm it would bu to con
fess Republicanism a sham and all its
glorious principles cant, ana hypocrisy.
"For any senator of the Republican
party to vote for it is to stultify himself
and his party as much as if he had
voted for Cleveland in November. If
the Democrats and unrecanted believers
in secession and states' rights and free
trade and hatred of Union soldiers. may
be appointed to the supreme bench by a
Republican president and confirmed by
a Republican senate, there would seem
to have come a time when there is no
need for a Republican to live at all."

POPULISTS TO MEET.
An Important Gathering to Be
Held in Washington.
Brockton, Mass., Feb. 4.— There
will be an important gathering of Popu

the future of the party will be more

important bearing upon the People's
party movement in this country. The
bi-metallists on this occasion hold their
annual convention and will devote its
whole time to the money question
now so prominently before con cress.
The National Alliance is an organiza

of the money problem, bnl economic
questions, such as are advocated by
Populists everywhere. The meeting of
the Reform Press association, which in
cludes over 1,000 papers, will decidu

to bring about the final triumph ot Pup.

This will be the first meeting of the
Populists since the election, and it is
reported from reliable sources thai an
effort will be made to amalgamate thu
many branches of the People's party
movement, the object of which will be
to agitate and secure, if possible, dur
ing President Cleveland's administra
tion, the necessary relief upon financial
and social problems. The People's*
party, as now comprised, is made up of
men and organizations of many minds,
each striving to gain certain legislation.
One of the main objects of the coining
conference at Washington will be to
decide uuon some uniform plan by
which the silver men and advo
