Sin Richaisd Webster said before the Bebring sea tribunal that its fiud ings would not be legally binding to the parties, and hinted strongly that Eng land might not abide by the decision. He was severely rebuked by Baron Cottrceixes, of the commission. Web steh evidently sees defeat ahead for England, and wished to stir up a war feeling. His course was in very bad taste, and furthermore. England would be in a very bad position to fight. Eng land has wiser men than Wkbster, and should not have sent such a niaD before the tribunal as her counsel. — A SAD DISASTER. The collision in the Mediterranean sea between British men-of-war, by which the flagship Victoria was sent to the bottom with over 400 souls, includ ing Vice Admiral Sir Geokge Tkyon, Commander-in-chief of the Mediter ranean squadrou, and one of the most distinguished naval officers of Europe, is one of the saddest disasters of recent »ears. The Victoria was a first-class twin screw battle ship of 10.370 tons id 1 14,000 horse power, corresponding v size and proportions to our battle ships Indiana and Oregon. The Camp enlown, which struck the Victoria with its ram, is a battle ship of about the same size and character. As soon as the extent of the damage to the Victoria was realized an effort was made to close the bulkhead to keep the water within the compartment punctured. But the sea rolled in so rapidly that it was impossi ble to do so, and in fifteen minutes from the time of the collision the ship cap sized and weut down. Tne suction caused by the sinking was so great that it is a marvel that any managed to swim out of it; but some 288 had the fortune to rise and escape. Just how the accident took plane, or who is at fault, for somebody must have committed a serious blunder, is not yet announced. But it is done, and cannot be undone; hence, a much more serious concern is to know how to provide against the probability, if not possibil ity, of like catastrophes occurring in the future. Just why the bulkhead was open is not understood; but possibly it was to afford air for the firemen. If tliis be true, it would seem that some other means of getting a sufficient quauMty of air into the furnace pits should have existed. The ponderous weight of iron about these ships must carry them to the bottom very quickly when any compartment is punctured and the way is open lor the water to es cape to the other compartments. Hence it is a matter of the utmost importance that at all times when the ship is mov ing all the compartments shall be tight ly enclosed. The accident is sufficient in magni tude to bring about such corrections in ship handling or buildiug as will prob ably render it next to impossible for one like it to happen again. One thing is demonstrated, and that is that a ship's ram is a great deal more formidable weapon than has generally been supposed. It has been asserted by naval officers that the sides of these ironclad ships are so powerful that they can generally resist a broadside shot from one of the I eaviest guns at a dis tance of a mile, and even less. If this be true, it would seem that the ram is quite as powerful, if not more powerful than the projectile. When one thinks of such a collision with ships simply maneuvering in a calm sea, and not very distant from shore, it makes him tremble for the safety of the great ocean greyhounds that are speeding to and fro between Europe and America in a narrow path at twenty and more knots an hour, with 1,000 or more passengers aboard each. Some day. it is feared, there will be a collision at sea between these, and no one will be left to tell the tale. THE FREE BATHS. At 1 o'clock this afternoon the nata torium at the Bethel boat will be thrown open free to the poor, and all who desire to bathe. The swimming pool is sev euty feet long, twenty-four feet wide, and the water will be five feet deep at the times set apart for men and boys who can swim, and ou other occasions it will be more shallow for boys who can not swim. The water will not be dirty river water, but will come from artesian wells, and be as puru and clear as that of Lake P^halen. It will be warmed to a comfortable temperature by a large boiler. There will be soap and towels aud every convenience. Everything about the natatorium will be so com fortable and inviting that any one who cannot afford to purchase a bath and is not attracted to it is unworthy to live among men. In another place in this issue will be found the times on which the bath will be free to men and boys, when frse to women, and when it wiW be reserved for the use of those who can afford to pay 10 cents for a bath. Dlt is a new undertaking in St. Paul, and its happy perfection of detail should make-it a success. Poor people may be excused tor wearing poor and ragged clothing; but with such an institution in the city as that at the Bethel they cannot be excused for not keeping their persons clean. Cleanliness of the body is one of the greatest of health pro moters, and if there are any in the city so ignorant that they do not know this, efforts should be mada to inform them of it, and impress it firmly upon their minds. U is important not only to ihe poor that they should maintain good health, but to the cleanly people with whom they come in contact, who may contract contagious diseases from them. Many of the cities of Europe which are amply provided with free baths have ordinances making it an offense for peo ple to neglect to bathe at least once a week. The ordinances are justified on the ground that the general health of the city is largely dependent upon the cleanliness of all the people. But it is to be hoped that no such ordinance will be necessary in St. Paul; from preseut appearances it will not be. The indications are that there will be 400 and over present to initiate the free bath. It will take a little time for news of the existence of the free bath to reach all who should take advantage of it, and it may take a little missionary work to get some people started to it. But with the right steps taken it is more than probable that the natatorium will attract to it regularly about every poor person in the city. Then, too, it should become a popular resort for all classes who can afford to pay for baths. Such an extensive expanse of clear, pure water, with a five-foot depth and a com fortable warmth, should afford swim mers more pleasure than they can find in swimming at lake resorts. The water from the wells runs contiu uaily through the basin, so that there can be no .accumulation of filth or filthy water. It will be perfectly safe for those of cleanly habits to use the pay-baths. All will, no aoubt, soon discover this fact, and we may expect to see people flock to it in great numbers during the pay-hours. Every effort will also be put forth to make the place popular to womeu. Their hours will be enjoyed in the strictest privacy, aud matters will be so arranged that they n«ed have no fear of intrusions. it is hoped and believed that the natatorium has come to stay, and that it will be one of the most liberally pat ronized institutions in the city. To those who brought it into existence great credit is due— a fact which will be more fully realized when the public be comes more acquainted with the place. A SAPIENT STATESMAN. The New York Times prints a map of the United States in which the congres sional districts whose members oppose the repeal of the Sherman silver pur chase act are shown In black. The northwest corner of Minnesota.coverinsj the Seventh district, is the only black portion ot this state. The remaining portion, represented by Democrats) and Republicans, shows in the white their concurrence in the need of the repeal of this act, a failure in its theory as it was false in its principle. The Seventh district, ths Egypt of Miuuesota, is represented. .by Halvor E. Boen, a product of a transition stage of popular thought, in which old opin ions are Deiug discarded, and during which, awaiting the crystallization of new and sound ones, fantastic notions of government, its use and its powers, timl a temporary foothold and expres sion. It is iv such periods as this that the THE SAINT PAUL DAILF GLOBE: SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 24; 18ya. Boexs are evolved, scintillate for a mo ment, and retire into the obscurity whence they came. Mr. Boe.v made answer to the Times' request for his opinion as to the advisa bility of the repeal, and as to the reform of the currency of the country. Merely as a curiosity, an illustration of the ab surd creations of men who cast to the winds the experieucerand wisdom which generations of men have paintuily gath ered, and embark on unknown seas with no light to guide them save their own imagination and what they are pleased to consider their intelligence, we print the answer he made: To the Editor of the New York Times: First give silver tha sams risht of coinage and legal tender quality as gold, A ratio- of 16 to 1, and then reocal the Sherman law, or de monetize gold and declare geld contracts void. 1 favor bimetallism, or a paper cur rency, if lull ie*al tender, and issue it iv payment of services rendered and materials furnished to the governmeiit. That will be a cheap, sale and sufficient way oat of the dif ficulty, and will make us independent of the London bankers who. your telegram indi cates, are causing the trouble. H. E. Boen. It is difficult to consider seriously the confusion of remedies which Mr. Bokn prescribes. We have read with care the plans proposed by those members wiio oppose the repeal, and, while they em brace one or more of Mr. Boex's sug gestions, there is no one of them that shows that breadth of true Populist statesmanship that distinguishes the statesman from Fergus Falls. Why, if free coinage be given to silver at the present ratio of 16 to 1, there is need of the alternative choice of repealing the Sherman act or demonetizing gold, is, we confess, utterly beyond our power of comprehension. If frea coinage is given the bullionaires at a rate which makes tiieir metal worth $I.2'.>2'J an ounce, they will hardly care to retain a law which provides for its purchase at its actual value of, at present, 84 cents an ounce. We apprehend that there would be no need of the formal demon etization of gold if such freedom were given to the coinage of silver. The business world would immediately demonetize it and transform it into a commodity which Mr. Boen and the rest of us would hare to buy, should we need it, with our silver, and of which we would get G5 cents', worth or less for each silver dollar. In his attempt to void the contracts which call for payment in gold, we ap prehend that Mr. Bokx would meet a serious and fatal obstruction iv the courts of tlie country, who would en force that provision of the constitution which prohibits the impairment of con tracts. But, as we said, Mr. Boen* is not to be taken seriously. We doubt if he expects it himself. He is a shrewd, keen man, seeing deafly enough the practical affairs of life which come within the focal limit of his mental camera, and realizes that it is good pol itics to represent all the isms of the party whose choice for representative he was fortunate enough to be. If it was his purpose to embody these in his reply to the Times, we must admit that he has succeeded well. FINANCIAL TINKERING. Under ordinary circumstances we would not notice the vagarious financial ideas of Alfred B. Westuup, of Mer riam Park, but would pass them by as we wduld those of any other whimsical or crotchety tinkerer with the finances. But as he has taken the trouble to edit and publish two pamphlets whiab he names "The Financial Problem" and "Citizens' Money," and has backed up his literary efforts by personal inter views with bankers, editors and every body else connected with currency mat ters, and has been allowed a hearing in the Minneapolis Times of June 12 inst. in a long article, accompanied with an edi torial notice, we think it not out of the way to say a word on the subject, and especially as the financial question is just now uppermost iv the minds of all our people. There is very little to fear from ef forts such as those of Mr. Westuup,be cause of the transparent absurdity of the whole scheme; but when a national party seriously advocates tha loaning by the government of money to any one who happens to want it, upon the se curity of lands aud farm products, and members of congress and senators are chosen to engraft such policies on the country, we may well fear that Mr. Westrup may find followers and con verts to his doctrines. If we understand him clearly, his panacea for all our financial troubles is the abolition of gold and sil ver money, which he terms "com modity money," and the substitution of paper money, secured upon anything anybody happens to have. His argu ment in support of this wild scheme is, that so long as paper issues are confined to the government, and based ou gold and silver, tln-y must ot necessity be limited to the amount of gold and silver in existence, and such limitation is the cause of all our difficulties. The gov ernment being the originator of the cuirency, as matters now stand, the people can't get hold of it without paying interest, Jvvlnch is another source of evil and oppres sion. He would remedy all this by allowing every citizen, tnrough the medium of what he calls a "mutual bank," to issue his own money on the security of any kind of property he may possess, which could be done at a cost of one-half of 1 per cent for the printing. He does not add, as the French finan ciers did when the assignats wero is sued by the revolutionary government, the penalty of death to any one who re fused to accept them at par, but seems to innocently imagine that they would go without question. It is a curious commentary on the in tellieence of the nineteenth century that such ideas should be seriously pre sented to the consideration of the pub lic, and we may add that it is equally a reflection on the good sense of our readers that we should deem it neces sary to call attention to it. We recently presented our views ou the inexorable character of all eco nomic laws, and proved that they cannot be tampered with without re taliation; ana we would now suggest to Mr. Wbstbup, and all others who have quack remedies for financial diseases, that all the forces of government, even including the absolute powers of a dic tator, cannot give value to a currency that is not founded on the only security recognized by the commercial world— goid. We would suggest to Mi. West rt'p that the best test of his theory would be to try it himself. He is a cit izen, and supposably has some property on which to issue "citizens' money." Why not put it in circulation? We will not commit ourselves to his plan, how ever, to the extent of promising to take his "citizens' money" in payment for a subscription to the Globe. THE REAL ALT KKXATIVE. A contemporary which claiu.s and aims to be representative of Democratic opinion, commenting on the fiscal prob lem which confronts our party, says that it has two alternatives; either the restoration of revenue duties— on tea, coffee and sugar— which the Repub licans removed in order to make their protective spoliation more secure, or the cutting clown of protective duties to the revenue point of lowest rate and largest revenue. It evidently is opposed to tlie latter alternative because it fears that it would expose many American industries engaged in manufactures of textiles, iton and steel "to a dangerous competi tion," and because the party is pledged in its platform and the tariff measures it lias formulated, against it. In the first place, no such couplet of alternatives is presented. Tha extrava gant appropriations fixed beyond our reach heretofore by Republican con gresses can now be trimmed down to that economical administration of the government which we have promised ihe people. There is no reason why the expenses of the government should not bear some steady relation to the popula lati>>n, and not increase out of all pro portion to tha increase of population. In all other business the contrar.ns the result, and expenses of administration decrpase with increase of business. Iv fact, this is the one reason on which railroads justify their combinations and consolidations, aud is the one which the promoters of the trade comb inations put fortlms the excuse for their forma tion. Thera is no reason, aside from ex travagance and the demands of pen sions and interest on the public debt, why t!ie ordinary expenditures of the government should have increased from a little over $2 per capita in 1831 toß3inlS:W. If they ,vere reduced to $3 per capita, the ciiief difficulty would bu removed. If.after such a lopping of extravagant excresences and,tl>e redemption of our solemn pledge to eliminate protection from the tariff and leave it a purely revenue one, there remain a deficit, congress need not goto putting trade shackles again on anything that a Re publican congrsss. whatever its motive, made free. As long as there are billions of wealth in the country that now pay not a cent toward the support of the government, lands and lots and all this enormous amount of personal property, absolutely free from federal tax, it is nothing short of criminal for congress to leave it free and exact tribute from the cups of tea and coffee and the sugar that sweetens them, on every table, rich or poor, in the land. Any Demo cratic paper should ba ashamed to pro pose such an outrage. But if it is surprising to have a Demo cratic paper suggesting the taxation of articles now free, it is amazing to have it oppose the excision of protection from the tariff because it would "expose many American industries to a ruinous competition." Such talk as that we are familiar with in Republican papers, and there are a few Eastern Democratic papers that are extremely tender of the poor industries, but here in the West, at the threshold of the broad prairies, waving today with grain grown under the freest and most ruinous competition with the grain-growers of the world, and surviving the struggle, it is the veriest flapdoodle to talk about any in dustry in this country being unaole to meet any competition from abroad. Not only can our manufacturers meet competition here, but they are demon strating every clay of the year that they can compete with their foreign con testants in their own homes. If the editor of the Democratic paper will take down his statistical abstract issued by the treasury department, and turn to the exports of merchandise given there in detail for a series of years, he will iiud, probably to his surprise, that tlie identical industries for which he fears the effects of a ruinous competition have been sending their goods abroad year after year to foreign marts, and there selling them under the noses of the makers of similar wares whose competi tion here he fears would be ruinous. LIZZIE BORDEN. Miss Lizzie Borden is not guilty. And the district attorney will find it a hard matter to explain why she was subjected to prosecution very like persecution and the taxpayers to the expense of the trial, if he cares to make the attempt.—Pitts burg Dispatch. Now she has been acquitted, because there was no evidence to convict her, and in the eye of the law she stands in nocent today. It would seem that time alone would tell the story, and even time sometimes forgets to telJ.— Toledo Blade. The verdict will receive the unani mous indorsement of every fair-minded person who has followed the testimony presented. There was not a scintilla of evidence to show that she was guilty ot the crime. -^Toledo Bee. She has bad a sore trial of twelve months' imprisonment iv the county jail, solely on suspicion. On thl3 ac count public sympathy has gone out to her.— Milwaukee Wisconsin. Lizzie Borden has been acquitted, not through the ability of her lawyers, but because of the utter absence of any sort of proof of her guilt.— Wheeling Register. Lizzie Borden has been acquitted. The jury was but about five days be hind the American in its verdict.—Nash ville Americau. The jury has found the only verdict justified by the evidence.— Graud Rapids Democrat. THE VIKING SHIP. Where their Norse forefathers fou nd it or not, those viking sailors will dis cover that this is the greatest country in the world.— Philadelphia Times. If the late Leif JErickson really dis covered America, and if he used a viking ship for the purpose, then all we can say is that it is mighty rough ou him not to get the credit for it.— New York Tribune. The viking ship, according to her picture, is a stranger-looking craft than even the caravels. If the Vikings dis covered Ain«rica iv such a primitive affair they did remarkably well.—Phil adelphia Record. The caDtain of Fthe viking, who was arrested with five of his Scandinavian crew for no fault of theits, and then feted while out on bail, will have a mixed opinion of Brooklyn justice, hos pitality and police which ha must not extend to the whole country.—Pitts burg Dispatch. ACCIDENT TO VHE NAVAHOE. The Navahoe collided with a pilot boat almost on thu commencement of her voyage to England. Superstitious sailors will argue that this <io?s not look well for her success in the English channel races.— Boston Record. Probably the most serious conse quences of the accident to Mr. Carroll's yacht, the Navahoe. will be that the delay incident to making repairs will shorten the time to be devoted to getting the craft in pr.iper racing trim after her arrival in England.— Boston Journal.

The Globe will suffer nothing by havng tuch a man as Judge Flandrau at its head.— Morris Sun. The St. Paul Globe is In the hands of a receiver who will manage and con duct it, and endeavor to pay off ibfl debt 3 of the concern. Hon. Charles E. Flandrau, of St. Paul, is the receiver, arnl a wiser selection could not have been made. He announces that there will be no change in the policy of the paper and that but few, if any. of the present force will be removed.—Waba sha Herald. j The St. Paul Globe >ha 3 been placed in the hands of Judge Flandrau as re ceiver. The judge, when asked what parthe should take in the active con duct of : the v paper, replied : "I ; shall : not go iuto the editorial business, but I isuppose 1 shall. be virtually the inan jairerof the company."— St. Peter 'irib une. :. .'. ' •.. - . ■'.•.."■ '-:■' . There has been more or less in the newspapers of late in relation to busi ness matters connected with the St. Paul Globe. Saturday, for the first time, the facts were given out by Hon. Charles E.

Flandrau long and well, and lias the most unbounded respect for his integrity and confidence in his Democracy. It" is well that the Globe will be undor the guidance of this sterling citizen and Democrat.— St. Cloud Timos. NOTED PEOPLE. W. S. Groesbeck says that John Mc- Mahon. of Dayton, is the man to defeat Tariff Bill McKiiiley in Oiiio this fall. He says McMahou can beat the little Napoleon at every point on a tariff de bate and that he is a shrewd practical politician as well. AH the principal actors in the Panama scandal are confined to their beds. Herui s dying at Bornemoutn, in Eng land: Ferdinand de Lesseps is mentally and physically a wreck, Charles de Les seps is in the hospital of St. Louis; M. Marius is in the infirmary of the Melun prison, and ex-Minister Baihut is in the hospital of the prison of Etampes. The archbishop of Canterbury is one of the most regular attendants at the sittings of the house of lords. There is an unwritten rule of that body that in formation on any matter relating to the church should be asked direct of the archbishop. His grace therefore con siders it his duty to be on hand, and he makes it a rule to be iv his place punc tually at 4 o'clock. When Sir Richard Webster gets through witn his Behring sea oration— if he ever does get through—ex-Minis ter Phelus will close the discussion for the United States. He has not an nounced now long he will speak, but, as he is taking dumbbell exercise and long walks to improve his wind, the members of the tribunal view the outlook with dismal apprehension. Killian Van Rcnsselaer is a Wall street broker who does penance for his stock exchange sins by engaging in evangelistic work among the old sol diers. At the Grand Army mission the other day he told the uuregenerate vet erans that they were defeated at Chan cellorsville because "Fighting Joe" Hooker had sworn that "God almighty Himself couldu't defeat the army of the Potomac." Archibald Clayering Gunter. the au thor of "Mr. Barnes of New York" and kindred works of fiction, is an indus trious young man who is making hay while the sun shines. He is reported as saying frankly: "1 don't believe people will read my truck much longer, and 1 am going to load them up while they want it." Which shows that Mr. Gu uter has a long head, whether he writes good'unvels or not. THE LADIES' ROW. Gov. Nelson is entitled to the heartfelt sympathy of the entire state. He has been requested to decide the dispute between the Minnesota lady managers of the world's fair, who have been tear ing each other's hair for the past week. — Duluth Herald. The Kilkenny cat fight among mem bers ot the Minnesota (ladies' auxiliary board at the world's fair as to who shall be supreme commander, has finally been qnelled by Installing Mrs. A. T. Steb bius in the woman's building. From new on, for the credit of Minnesota, hair pulling should cease.— St. Peter Tribune. The ladies of the Minnesota commis sion at the world's fair have settled their little differences and everything is mov ing along smoothly, and the exhibits in their charge have all bsen placed. The city newspapers.by cartoons and alleged witty paragraphs, placed the Minnesota ladies before the people in an uueuvia ble light for a time. The misunder standing amounted to nothing, but the city papers made a mountain of it.— Dakota County Tribune. A merry row is on between Mrs. Hunt and Mrs. Stebbins, both ot whom want to become installing officer of the ladies' state auxiliary at the world's fair. The former claims to have been elected to the position, althotigh there is no record to show it, while the latter claims to have been appointed by the supervising officer.— Sibley County Enterprise. The expected has happened, and another row is on. If the board of "lady managers" for Minnesota were of the masculine gender we would dub them asses, but under the existing circum stances we must say that they are mak ing jeunies of themselves. Mrs. Hunt and Airs. Stebbins should be turned out to grass.— Litchfield News-Ledger. JEFFERSON'S ILLNESS. Should Joseph Jefferson die. and he i 3 now very ill, all the great lights will have disappeared from the American stage.— Memphis Appeal- Avalanche. There is a very wide and very tender popular interest in the reports of Joseph Jefferson's sickness. Fate should suare for a long time yet this kiud and cheery veteran of the stage.— New York World. The second illness of Joseph Jeffer sou within a few weeks will cause grave solicitude among his friends. It is true that he is a inau of temperate ami eta reci habits, and up to within a recent period has been strong and well, but ho lias reached a time of life when the constitution does not resist disease with the vigor of youtii and middle age, and when great care and prudence are nec essary for the preservation of health, ileis going to tfive himself absolute rest at His summer home on Buzzard's bay. ami it is lioDrfd that this will result in, ll is complete restoration.

Ambassador Bayard appears to havo met with a very distinij uished reception on his arrival in Great Britain. The new title is evidently working. — Bostou Herald. Judging from the reception tendered to Ambassador Bayard on his arrival at Southampton, his sojourn in England will be one continual round of Dleusure. — Boston Herald. Thomas F. Bayard is said by those who have seen him in London to "look every inch an ambassador." Mr. Bay ard's chief glory, however, is that he can look every inch an American.— St. Louis Republic.

A HOT PROTEST Will Come From the Arlington Hills District if Chemicals Are Removed. Residents of That Section Are Fearful of Losing Protec tion From Fire. The people in the Arlington Hills dis trict are very much exercised over the rumor that attempt will be made to de prive them of the chemical fire aparatus on Payne avenue. It is the subject of general discussion by the people. The Arlington Hills Citizens' union called a meeting for last uight to enter a protest against such action, but there vras no formal meeting held. The citizens, however.met in groups alone: the streets and in the stoics, and discussed the situation and prospect. The universal sentiment seemed to be that it would be a calamity to takn away the chemicals, as it would leave a large part of the city with practically no fire protection. This part of the city is thickly built up, principally with small frame houses that can well be protected by chemi cals. To take this away would loave a territory over two mil«s square that Is thickly populated, without adequate protection, as there would be no engine house near. The poople will not only pro test but will make their protest very vigorous and use every persuasion that can be put intowords to prevent the abo lition of the only preventative of fire they have in the large territory iijw covered by the chemicals ou Payne avenue and Dayton's bluff. RABIUK IN COWS. Bitteu by a Dos, They Exhibit All the Symptoms. The 200 inhabitants of Newport, Washington county, are just now ex cited over the unique spectacle of half a dozen cows with the rabies. Three weeks ago last night a stray dog bit six cows, owned by as many different resi dents in the village. The next morning the dog was killed by one of the vil lagers. Nothing more was thought of the occurrence until a few daya aeo, when the bovines bitten showed signs of rabies. One or the cows, belonging to Henry Martin, died yesterday, and another of the animals, it is thought, will have to.be killed today iv order to end its sufferings. The attention of the St. Paul health office was called to the matter ytsterday, but as Newport is in Washington county the officials here coula not take any steps.

Their Abuse Really Aided Voorhees and Gorman With Mr. Cleveland. The Evils of the Sherman Act Predicted When It Was Passed. Failure of Crops in Germany and All of Western Europe. Special to the Globe. Washington, June 23.— As the pres- ideut makes his appointments it be comes more and more evident that he does not propose to aid the petty fac tionists who would wreck the Demo cratic party in their endeavors to per petuate the differences growing out of the fact that all Democrats previous to the Chicago convention did not believe that Mr. Cleveland was the most avail able man to nominate. Once nominated, the men who opposed his nomination most strongly at Chicaico rallied lo his support all over the land auci aided in securing the magnificent victory. Every Democrat Needed. Up to a year ago it had never been considered a crime for a Democrat to entertain an opinion different from an other member of the party, or a very large portion of it, provided he gave his cordial support to the ticket nominated, aud tha attempts of the recent converts to Democracy to make the party a per sonal one has uo support at the White house. Mr. Cleveland has grown heart ily sick of the cant of the saltish Mug wump horde, as they are fast finding out. Why this is so is not hard to see. At a time when the administration needs the hearty support of every Dem ocratic member of congress the best efforts of tha "solar-walk critics," ai Senator Vest so aptly termed the holier thau-thou crowd, are being devoted to abusing aud atteuiDthu to discredit men to vvhom the president must look for the most unfaltering support in the con tests that are in sight. Helped Old Dan. Even before the inauguration this work commenced. Among the first men to be attacked and whose influence at the White house was to be destroyed was Senator Vorhees, of Indiana. The fact that the ••Tall Sycamore" hits been granted more favors by Mr. Cleveland than any other member of either house shows how little woight the ulterances of the political Pecksniffs carry. Sen ator Gorman, by all odds the ablest leader in the upper house, was another man who was to be actually barred out of the White house lest the sight of his bland and pleasant countenance should offend the sanctimonious gaze of the man who only flopped last year, but who nevertheless deems himself already a leader in the party aud An Especial ouardlan of the president. Senator Gorman said nothing, liis opponents actually had him beaten out of sight, in th«ir minds, un til the time to till one of the leading federal offices in Maryland came, and then without any ado and after a short call at the White house the candidate indorsed by the Marylander was ap pointed. There have been a half-dozen cases similar to these, all of which go to show that Grover Cleveland is a Democrat who believes that it is his duty to unite aud not to divide the party. It may take a few months moro to convince the "solar- walk critics" of the fact ihat Mr. Cleveland is not in sympathy with the nv;ii who devote their time to abusing good Democrats, but that it will bedoire there is no doubt. PREDICTED BY SHIVELY. Woes Brought On by the Sherman Aot Prophesied Three Years Ago. Special to the Globe. Washin'gtox. June 23.— "1 told you so" is an expression that is often heard with derision, but there is one man who was a inamber of the Fifty-first congress and protested against the passage of the so-called Sherman silver act, who is entitled to say "I told you so" with emphasis. This man is llo'n.H. P. Shively. then a member from the South Bend district of Indiana. He protested against the passage of the act as a friend of silver, and in so doinir he predicted the very things that have come to pass. In view of tlia tact that some of the friends of silver seem to have the im pression th>it the Sherman act iias done something for the white metal, and that upon its lepsal the price of bullion wUI take a heavy drop.thereare some points in Mr. Shively's speech of July 12, 1890, that deserve to be reprinted. '•IMuyinu the .flarket. " Like Congressman Bourke Cochran in the last congress: Mr. Shively then took the position thai the government under the Sherman act would become the grsatest bear on the silver market. liv its great purchases without coining the bullion, it would certainly force down the price, and, as tne New Yorker said, the government had been placed in the attitude or. "playing the market." Tne bullion was bought and piled up in the vaults, not coined, where all the world could see it an 1 marvel at its great amount. By doing this the prico was forced down instead of up, just as the price of wheat or auy other article goes down when tho visible supply is very large. But here is a portion of Mr. Shively's remarks against the measure wheu the conference report was before the lower house ot congress two years ago: Silver Virtually Destroyed. "How about your confidence bill? Sec tion 5 expressly repeals the silvar pur chase and coinage clause of the act of \876. Section 6 fixes July 1, 1891, as the date on which the coinage of |^,OUD,O()U worth per month provided for by sec tion 3of this bill shall ceasr. There after there is to be no coinage of silver dollars, except such as may be required to redeem the notes. Section 2 places it within the discretion of the secretary of tb« treasury to redeem the notes ex clusively in gold. The machinery of your bill is thus complete for the total destruction of silver coinage. Thure can be no doubt about it. Silver coin age Is to be strangled, and you Kentle meu whose voices are always for silver and votes alsvays against it, are invited to Keep this fact in mind when you re cord your judgment on this measure." Worwc Thau Demonetization. How completely has this prediction of the youthful ludianian been fulfilled. Silver coinage practically ceased when the bill thatlwas to elevate the white metal and filially lead to tiie adoption of free coinage went into effect. But Mr. Shiveiy in another section of his speech showed that outright demonetization of silver or free coinage possessed less danger for silver and the country. "Section 1 of the bill." he said, "pro vides for the purchase of 4,sou.oauouuces of silver per month on which partial legal tenders notes are to issue. Gentle men speak triumphantly of the harvest or dollars that this provision will put in circulation. But the trail of the serpent is over this provision also, as it is quali fied *»y the words, 'or so much thereof as may be offered.' Outright demonetiza tion would leave (be country in cer tainty, however lamentable. Free coin u£« would leuvu but little latitude for Sufferings Terrible. Life Was a Burden.

Limited mandatory coinage under the present law leaves some basis for calculation for the future." As actually worked out no one. after a careful examination, favors the Sher man act, although the most ultra free coit.age men would use it to force action along their lines, but they will fail in this, at least in the lower house, by a large majority. DROUGHT IN EUROPE. Crops Will Be Light, ami, There fore, a Demand for American Wheat Is Assured. Special to the Globe. Washington; June 2;;.— lt is a saa state of affairs that makes tho mis fortunes of millions of people In Europe the hope of prosperity to thousands in the same occupation in this country. With no intention of rejoicing over the fact, it now seems likely that there will be a disastrous shortage in tho crops of wheat, rye and other grains all over Western Europe this season, and, consequently, a great foreign demand for the wheat now growing In this coun try. Ju»t at present tremendous amounts of our surplus wheat are btting exported, partly, doubtless, because of, the low price at which it is selling, but more because of the fact that tha for eigners see a demand for it latPr. A late report from Frank ll. Mason. United States consul at Frankfort, tells some thing of the conditiou in Germany. He says: Disaster in Bnrop«< It is generally conceited that the pro longed and still unbroken drought has brought the agricultural interests of Central and Southern Europe to the vergo of disaster. In the region of Frankfort the last fall of rain occurred on the Stli of March last, and was so limited in quantity that it made almost no impression upon the sinunken springs and streams. In some other parts of Germany the drought has been still more protracted and its efleets more severe. At Weimar and in the rich gardening district Erfurt tlie last rainfall occurred on the sth of last November, a^id the winter in that re gion, although severe, brought no ade quate fall of snow. Substantially tho same conditions prevail throuirhout Italy, France, and almost the whole of Germany and Austria. Condition of (he Crop*. The situation has been aggravated by an unusually warm and early spring. The latter half of March and the whold of April were marked by a succession of warm, bright days, which parched the already dry ground and forced thu trees and shrubs; into premature foliage and blossom ; so that now the traveler in Germany nests everywhere the un accustomed spectacle of green woods and blooming orchards alternating with meadows and pastures as gray and bar ren as in March or November. Seeds which were planted early In April have either not sprouted at all or have sen] up a puny growth that is now withered for lack of moisture. The oat fields nre'in most cases as barren and dn»ty as a desert. Rye, which started vigorously with the warm days of April, has been checked and has commenced to hoad out prematurely at a height of from twelve to twenty Inches; and the peas ants, having exhausted their scanty iirtv supply of last year, have begun, for want of pasturage,* to cut their rye as food for cattle. Wheat, except in val leys where the nature of the soil sp&Cf ally favors tin retention of moist ure, has practically ceased to grow. Warm and copious rains would yet do much to save it and most other of tho spring crops, but. unless alt conditions are henceforth favorable, the wheat harvest of Germany this summer will be one of Uic lighest of recent years, RUINED BY HIS SON.
