fo tlic Patrons of the St. Paul Globe:
The St. Paul Gi.obk has for many
years been the leading Democratic
organ of the state of Minnesota, and. 1
may say, of the great Northwest. Its
fidelity to Democratic principles, the
Democratic party and Democratic men
lias never been questioned. Its ability

Unfortunate misunderstandings and
difficulties have arisen among its own
ers and proprietors, not of a financial
character, nor with reference to its
political conduct, but more with refer
ence to its business management. These
difficulties culminated iv a suit by a
stockholder which was instituted to
contest certain steps which had been
taken in its conduct. It is not finan
cially nor in any sense of
the word insolvent. On the contrary,
It possesses a magnificent plant and the
thorough equipment in every par
ticular of a first-class daily newspaper.
The contesting parties were unanimous
upon one point, and that was the
preservation of the paper with its com
mercial and political influence unim

and all interested parties airreed upon

because it is generally accepted through
out the Northwest that my fidelity to
Democratic principles would in the con

former patrons and to Democrats gen
I accepted the appointment, and can
safely promise to the Democracy of the
Northwest that, while I shall in no
sense become the editor of the paper, I
shall, as long as 1 occupy this position,
be its guide and conductor. It will
be my purpose, as long as I con

and in every other respect, than it has

Chauncey Depew Says the Rail
roads Will Soon Be Knurling
Cheap Excursions.
lie Believes I hat the Financial
Scare and Stringency Are
About Over.
CHICAGO, June 10.— Hon. Chauncey
Al. Depew, of New York, looking as
rosy aud as fresh as a schoolboy, and
wearing a jaunty straw hat, stood in
the corridor of the Auditorium hotel
this noon, awaiting on the coach to take
him to the exposition. lie said:
"My primary object in coming to Chi
cago is to attend the meeting of the
Sons of the American Revolution, and
only incidentally to see the exposition,
which I hope to have the opportunity of
looking over this afternoon and tomor
row, for I shall be compelled to return
home on Monday. I have been invited
to deliver an address in connection with
the Bunker llil^ celebration tomorrow,
and, if 1 am able to get my brains to
gether tonight, I shall do so."
i '"What do your road and other East
ern roads propose doing in the direction
of popular excursion rates to the world's
fair?" Mr. Dupew was asked.
"We shall make an excursion rate
that will be satisfactory to everybody,
and 1 belive that all the other Eastern
railroads will do the same when the
propper time arrives. We shall run
weekly and semi-weekly excursions to
Chicago, which will not in any wise in
terfere with our regular service, and
the rates will be placed within the
reacii of all. Up to this time any at
tempt on the part ot the railroads to
run such excursion trains would have
been at a loss, and no railroad will en
ter into aii}' business which does not
promise to make an adequate return.
Now that the exposition is completed.
Chicago can look forward to a tremen
dous lnpouring of the people from all
parts of the country, and you can feel
assured that the railroad compauies
will do their duty to bring the people
here as cheeply aud comfortably as is
in their power."
fcpi'aking of the finaucial condition,
Hi. De-pew said:
"It i 6 largely a matter of sentiment.
y ~*' . *mm^.^ '
If the people believe there is money
enough in the country to do business oil
—there is enough; but if ou the other
hand they have an impression that there
is not sufficient money, then they with
draw their ravines from the bank, lose
their interest, which the banker gains,
and the next day, when they discover
that the bank is perfectly safe and that
the business world has not "collapsed,
they carry their savings back to the
bank again. I believe that the financial
stringency and scare are about over.
Among the moneyed men in the.East
there is a unanimous feeling and desire
for a special session of congress, and
that just as quickly a<? possible. Na
tional relief is needed to re-establish a
feeling of security. As to the Sherman
bill, there is a demand for its repeal.
Though the desire for this repeal is a
matter of sentiment, and not based on
any appaient necessity— at least, that
is the way 1 look at it."
Important Archaeological Find in
a Mexican State.
(liADA.n-.uiA, June 10.— An impor
tant discovery of ruins has been made
near Ixtolan. in the state of Tepic. A
party of American and English archae
ologists, whiie exploring that remote
section, came upon an old building al
most buried in the earth. It is located
in a dense forest and had apparently
been undisturbed for several hundred
years. The htructure is uuilt of stone
and is of large dimensions. A large
number of pottery and weapons made
of stoiie were found in the building.
In one corner of a room was round a
pile of human bones. It is believed
that the building was used as a temple
of worship by the Indians, or a pre
historic race, centuries ago.
Lively Incident at the Annual
Sleeting of the National Sont
of the Revolution.
The Members Conclude That They
Will Not Try to Put Down
Chicago, June ie— A lively Incident
today marked the annual meeting of the
National Society of the Sons of the
American Revolution. An amendment
proposed by the Oregon- Washington so
ciety defining the objects of the natioual
organization came up for discussion.
Bishop Cheney, of Chicago, expressed a
wish that the phrase, "To oppose by
moral means the spread of anarchical
ideas and lawlessness," be incorporated
in the constitution. He raid that the
Western states realized what anarchy
means more fully than the Atlantic sea
board states. Mr. Hall said the commit
tee on organization was willing to have
that clause admitted. In a second Gen.
J. C. Breekenridge, of Washington, was
on his feet, hotly opposing Bishop
Cheney's proposition.
"This society has no more business
trying to put down anarchy than it has
to put down hell," said he.
The general ripped out the exclama
tion with a force that made the good
bishop start. Delegate Blister, of Ohio,
also opposed the amendment, and it was
voted down. The convention then
adopted a committee amendment, which
declared the objects of the society to be
to perpetuate the memory of Revolu
tionary heroes, to unite and promote
friendship atflffiig their descendants, to
encourage historical research, to foster
true patriotism, "and to carry out the
purposes expressed in the preamble to
the constitution of our country and the
injunctions of Washington in his fare
well address to the American people."
Among these present were Chauncey
M. Dcpew, Gen. Horace Porter and
other distinguished members. Tonight
the delegates were banqueted at the
Union League club. The following of
ficers were elected: President, Gen.
Horace Porter: vice presidents general,
Cnauncey M. Depew, Henry M. Shep
ard. Col. Thomas M. Anderson, (Jen.
J. C. Breckimidge and Henry C. Rob
inson: secretary general. Franklin
Murphy, Newark, N. J.; registrar gen
eral, A. Howard Clark, of the Smith
sonian institution; historian general,
Henry Hall; chaplain general, Bishop
Charles E. Cheney.
President Cleveland Having; a
Slight Seige of This Painful
He Is Only Taking Two Meals a
Day, in Order to Reduce
His Weight.
Washington, June 16.— The presi
dent, though still suffering from rheum
atism, came to the White house today
at nis usual time. The cabinet meeting
was attended by all thcmeinbers,except
Secretary Herbert, who is out of the
city. It impossible to ascertain def
initely at the executive mansion wheth
er the president will accompany Mrs.
ClevelandJo Gray Gables cottage, Buz
zards' Bay, Mass., next week. The
president has not yet himself decided.
Mrs. Bissell, wife of the postmaster gen
eral, will, it is understood, make the
journey with Mrs. Cleveland. It is
j ust possible that the president may
make the trip all the way, or only xo as
far as New York city. In either event
tie will remain only long enough to see
Mrs. Cleveland safely on the boat or
snugly ensconced in her seashore home.
The "president does not expect to join
her at Gray Gables for any leuglhy stay
until the middle of July.
The Tost says: "In defiance of hard
worK and the heavy responsibility rest
ing upon him, the president is steadily
gaining in avoirdupois. His increased
weight has begun to be inconvenient.
Already the ellurt of walking has be
come a burden, and Mr. Cleveland finds
himself forced to forego much of his
customary exercise. I his is a source of
keen regret to him, and in order to re
duce his size, the chief executive is
quietly pursuing the Banting system.
Two meals a day is now all
that he allows himself— a light
breakfast and dinner with sim
ple meats and spring vegetables.
Siuce taking possession of his couutry
home, the customary midday luncheon
has been religiously omitted, and in this
way the president linds additional time
for work, to which he devotes himself
conscientiously from the time he reaches
the White house in the morning until
close onto 5 o'clock, at which hour Mrs.
Cleveland drives in and spirits her hus
baud away from all worries, out into the
fresh green fields and daisy-spangled
meadows. In the peaceful retreat on
Woody Lane their evenings are spent in
undisturbed enjoyment, save for occa
sional visits from members of the cabi
net and other personal friends."
Returns in the German Elec
tions Look Better for the
The Emperor Certainly Has
Not Lost From the Dis
Reballots Will Be Necessary
in More Than Half the
Several Small Election Riots
Reported From the
Behux, June 16.— The most con
spicuous two featured of today's elec
toral returns have been the continued
reports of Social Democratic gains and
Richtenst losses. Early this morning
most of the news still came from the
city constituencies, and the list of op
position deputies grew rapidly. This
afternoon, however, dispatches from
the agricultural districts revealed
the other side of the page.
From all that can n#w be as
certained it is reasonably safe to con
clude that the government certainly has
lost nothing by the dissolution and prob
ably has won a little. At 10 o'clock this
evening the returns may be summarized
thus: In the 180 districts from which
reports had been received eighty-five
deputies had been elected. In the
remaining ninety-five new ballots will
be necessary. Of the eighty-five depu
ties elected, thirty-six will vote with
the government, forty-nine against it.
The parties siding with the government
had lost three seats to the opposition;
the parties working against the govern
ment had evened matters by losing the
same number of seats to the
I- ri.iKlH of (he Army Bill.
The Conservatives had elected 17
deputies; the Social Democrats, 23;
the Clericals, 20; Radical Unionists, 11;
Free Conservatives, 4; Poles, 8; Demo
crats, 5; anti-Semites, 2; Independents,
2, both favorable to the bill; Govern
iufctit Clericals, 1; National Liberals, 2.
Not one immediate supporter of
Eugene Richter, the anti-Gov
ernment Radical, has been elected.
The Conservatives had won two seats
formerly held by Free Conservatives.
The Social Democrats had gained three
seats from llichterists and one from
Free Conservatives. The Lieber Cleri
cals had gained one from the Govern
ment Clericals and had lost one
to them. The Radical Unionists
had elected one deputy who voted
against the army bill, but will vote for
it in the next reichstag. The Free Con
servatives had gained two seats and
lost three. The Democrats had gained
one seat from the National Liberals.
The National Liberals had lost three
seats and gained two. The most in
teresting feature in the new ballots re
ported until now will be probably the
gains of the Social Democrats and' Ra
dical Unionists.
Several small election riots are re
ported today from the provinces. In
Strassburg "last evening, shortly after
the poll was announced, about 2,000
socialists began
Parading: the Streets
and shouting for their candidate, Au
gust Bebel. They refused to disperse
when the police attacked them
and many cheered for France.
The military eventually broke
up the procession and arrested
eight men. Nobody was injured. In
Reutlingen, Wurte.'nburg, tne police
arrested many Social Democrats, who
attacked the police station, lv Gruen
berg, Silesia, the socialists rioted
through the streets. The police dis
persed them with drawn swords and ar
rested the leaders. In this city the
police arrested Heir Landauer, an an
archist editor, on the charge of inciting
to riot.
The revised lists of the Berlin polls
show that the Radical vote fell froi'.i
75,000 to 52,085, while the Social Demo
cratic vote increased from 12(5,017 to
150,877. The vote of the Conservatives
and Anti-Semite Cartel increased from
34,048 to 48,135. Complete returus
from the second division of
Munich show that George yon
Vollmar, the victorious leader of tho
Germau Democrats, polled 15,219 vote 3.
In Strassburg, August Bebel, Social
Democrat, polled 0,200 votes, against
6,'J'Jl for Dr. Petri, his National Liberal
opponent. In Glauchau, lecaz Aver,
Social Democrat, polled 14,970 votes.
"Cannon King" Krupp, in Essen, who
will no through a new ballot with Herr
Stott/el, his Clerical opponent, received
I'J,4S7 votes. StoeUel received 19,447.
Government Gain.
Beiu/ix, June 17.— At 2 o'clock this
morning returns have been received
from 220 out of 3!)7 electoral districts.
In all ninety-eight candiates have been
elected. In 122, second ballots will be
necessary. The National Liberals,
Conservatives and Clericals are
holding their own. The Hichter
Radicals remain very far behind.
Of this 98 deputies already elected. 42
are counted lor the bill and 56 against
it. Since the reports received up to lo
o'clock were sent out the dispatches
have shown that the government has
gained two more new seats and has lost
one more old one.
In Geestemuende a new ballot will
necessary between Dr. Hahn, National
Liberal, and Herr Schmaifeld, Social
Democrat. There are six candidates in
this district, four of them National Lib
eral. Undoubtedly the National Lib
erals will unite aud elect llalin on the
second ballot. This will be a gain for
the government.as Prince Bismarck, the
district's last representative, was absent
from the final reading of the army bill.
Hahu calls himself a Bisuiarckian
National Liberal.
In Jerichow a new ballot is necessary
between Count Herbert Bismarck,
Agrarian, who received 9.650 votes, and
Feridin and Woelmer, Socialists, who
received 4,564. Herr Gloeke, Social
Democrat, received t2.'.)Sl votes.
Socialists Exult.
The Socialist organ Vorawertz exults
over the result of the elections, which it
.says will form "a glorious title puge to
the radiant records of the future The
aggregate Socialists' vote bids fair to ex
ceed 2,000,000. The Vorawertz predicted
that tha National Liberal success would
be chiefly in the rich manufacturing
towns of West Germany. It is likely,
says, the • Vora\verts,'that many anti-
Semitiea will be successful at the ex
pense of Conservatives, who dry-nursed
them. A conspicuous feature of the
election is the overthrow of the Radi
cals. ' '
Late returns from Arnswalde show

British House of Commons In
Favor of Peaceful Settlements.
London, June 16.— 1n the house of
commons today \V. R. Cremer, member
for Shoreditch, moved that the house,
having learned that the United States
congress had authorized the president
to conclude treaties of arbitration, ex
pressed the hope that tho government
would open negotiations with the view
to refer all differences to arbi
trators. Mr. Gladstone suggest
ed a modification of the reso
lution by the substitution of the words
"that the house of commons, cordially
sympathizing with the purpose in view,
hopes that her majesty's government
will lend a hearty co-operation to tne
covernment of the United States." Mr.
Gladstone congratulated Mr. Creoier
upou his finding a chance to strike in
behalf of humanity, lie reviewed the
history of the arbitration movement,
and reminded the house of President
Harrison's address to the Methodist
council, in which the president
spoke of the limitations of in
ternational arbitration and the
impossibility of applying it to the feuas
of aggrandizement. * The Behriug sea
tribunal bore testimony, he said, to the
earnest atte ntion given to the question
in America. Atter touching upon his
owu idea of a central tribunal with
great powers, Mr. Gladstone concluded
with an eloquent appeal for a modera
tion of claims as the most effective
means of preserving peace. The resolu
tion, as amended by Mr. Gladstone, was
unanimously adopted.

All the Testimony in Favor
of Lizzie Borden Now
Her Sister Emma Appears in
Behalf of the Accused
Breach Between Lizzie and
Her Stepmother Had Been
Only One Witness, a Boy, Now
Remains to Be Exam
Nptw Bedfokd. Mass-, June 16.—
There was less of a crowd at the court
house this morning at the resumption of
the Borden trial than at any time since
the beginning of the trial. The decision
relative to the admission of the evidence
of the Portuguese who saw the man
with the bloody hatchet was in order
the first thing this morning, and after
the jury had been polled counsel en
tered into a consultation with the jus
tices upon some points which the latter
desired to hear. Following this
the court said it was clear that tha evi
dence offered on the head above referred
to could not be admitted. Mrs. Mary R.
Holmes, a neighbor and member of the
church which Miss Borden attended,
was then called to the stand. Witness
was asked whether Lizzie went down
to look at her father's body before the
funeral, was objected to, but the
court, assuming the question to be
preliminary, allowed it to be answered,
witness answering in tho affirmative.
Witness was asked what Lizzie did
when she went down into the room, and
this was objected to; thereupon the
chief just ice called counsel to the desk
for consultation, the result of which
was thai the question was changed
to "At this time when she was viewing
her father did she shed tears?" The
answer was yea. Miss Emma Borden
was called. Sue 'estitied as follows:
Einma'H Testimony.
"We have lived in the house we now
live in for twenty-one years last May.
At the time of the murder. Lizzie was
possessed of property as follows: $170
in the B. M. C. Safe Deposit and Trust
company, $2,000 in the Massasoit Na
tional bank, $500 in the Union Savings
bank, 8141 in the Fail River Five Cents
Savings bank, two shares of
the Fall River National bank
btock. four shares of the Mer
chants' Manufacturing company stock,
five shares of the same another date.
My father wore a ring on his finger.
It was given him by Lizzie. She had
worn it herself before, and he constant
ly won; It after, and it was buried with
him, I have made an inventory of the
clothes in the closet on the afternoon it
was searched. I was there when the
seatoh was goiug on." .
Witness was asked what Dr. Dolan
said in regard to a thorough search.
"The doctor said the search had been
as thorough as it could be unless the
paper was torn from the walls or the
carpet taken up. The Bedford cord
dress was made the first week in May at
our homo; it was a very cheap
dress, 12ja or 15 cents a yard, and about
eight or nine yards in it, ulainly
trimmed; not more than two days were
used in making tho dress; Lizzie and I
assisted, as we always did. The paint
ers began work after the dress was
made. Lizzie got some
Paint on This Drese
within two weeks after It was made.
She got the paint on the front breadth
and on the side. The dress was hanging
in the front closet on the day 1 came
home. 1 know, because I went in to
hang up a dress and found there was no
Q; Did you say anything to Lizzie
about that dress because tnere was no
nail there?
A- ldid; I said "You haven't de
stroyed that old dress yet; why don't
you do so?" It was very dirty, badly
faded, and I don't remember having
seen her use it for some time. It
couldn't have been made over be
cause, besides being badly soiled,
the material and color was
such as to render it impossible.
The next 1 saw of the Bedford dress I
was in the kitchen Saturday when 1
heard my sister's voice; 1 looked around
and saw her with the dress on her arm.
She said, "I'm going to burn this old
dress;" and 1 said: "I would," or
"Why don't you?" and turned ajvay.
I did not see her bum the
dress. Miss Uussell was there at
the time she told Mr. llanscom a false
hood, atid I asked her what that was
for. She said he asked her if all the
dresses were in the house that were
there at the time of the murder, and
she had said yes. Then it was decided
between us all that she go and tell Mr.
lianscom she
Had Told a Falsehood.
My sister said at the time: "Why
didn't you tell him about it? Why did
you let me do it?" 1 remember the
story about the quarrel between my
sister and I. I never had any such
conversation with my sister as was
reported; there was never any
trouble or quarrel in the matron's
nufitQ between us while she was
tl:ere, or anything that could be con
strued into a quarrel: Lizzie never did
put up her hngcr and say anything
about giving in. Witness contended
that the relations between Lizzie and
Mrs. Borden were entirely cordial.
Witness said that the breach caused by
the giving of the property to her mother
was never healed, so far as she was
concerned, although it was on Lizzie's
part. She knew of no enemy her step
mother had in the world.
The dressmaker who made the famous
paint stained dress next swore that
Lizzie could not have worn the pink
wrapper over it to conceal blood spots,
had tiiere been any. Said the witness,
"The skirt was longer by half a linirer
tl^ui she had been in the habit of wear
ing. It was a cheap cotton dress. The
painters were painting the house
when Lizzie was wearing the dress ;
she put it on as soon as it was done, i
sr,\v the dress after it was painted. The
!';iiu: Was in Front and Back.
She Jiad on an old wrapper whicli
this was to take the place of; she cut
some pieces wit of the old wrapper
while I was" tuere and touk it down
Phoebe B. M. Bowen, wife of Dr.
Bowen, was the next witness. She was
■ cailed f into the house right sifter the
Storm was given, and found Mrs.
■ Churchill was " fanning -Lizzie. She
thought Lizzie had tainted. Her lips
: a.id eliin , were quivering. She was
flaked about the blue "that had
been in evidence all aicrj*-.'. "1 should
say it was the waist," she said. She
was not sure about the skirt. District
Attorney Knowlton wanted to know
how Lizzie's hands were. They were
white and perfectly clean.
Mrs. Hinguatn was recalled. She was
asked if she had made any experiment
