The fact that be has chosen a physician as his most intimate friend may fat toe only reason for the circulation of the rumors of his ill-health. If, instead of chumming with Dr. Bryant, he had chosen to go fish ing with a tinker, it would be no evi dence that he needed soldering. The New York Tribune deprecates speech-making on the siver question iv the senate, and says that oratory does not change votes. True enough, it will not change the votes in tha present senate, but it may change the votes of members of the legislatures of the sev eral states when they come to elect suc cessors to the men who now represent or misrepresent the sentiment in their home states. Every senator should be allowed to go on record. The New "i orker who fell and broke his neck several weeks ago and still lives, is causing i.o 1 ale discussion in the medical journals. The profession is evidently disgusted and indignant that any one should have the hardihood to disregard all precedent. If the man should fully recover his physical pow ers, he would become yet more un popular, for he would demonstrate the fact that doctors have not yet learned how much the human frame eau en. dure. _ It will not be plain sailing this year for the lowa Republicans. The prohibi tion element in the party is indignant because of the repudiation of their doe riues by the Dcs Moines convention.; t and has organized a bolt. It does not appear as yet what forth the new organ- ; ization ? will assume— whether it will join with the Democrats or run an inde pendent ticket. The result will be the same in either case— the re-election of Gov. Boies as chief executive of the Hawkeyes. The majority of men hate cowards, and this is why the lowa Re publicans come in for such a large share of public detestation. ««— LABOR'S DEMONSTRATION. i Labor Day in St. Paul was all that" could have been desired. Clear skies and bright sunshine ushered in the dawn, while a delightful breeze tem pered the atmosphere. Tt was an ideal i Minnesota day in early autumn— A day that invigorated the physical faculties while gently stimulating the intellect ual. Each respiration was a draught of nectar Savored with stimulating ozone, and the buoyant steps ot the toilers, released from their tasks for a day, showed the inspiration of the weather and the day. For it was a 'great day for the none and sinew of the metrop olis, and they made the most of it. The procession was large and every way creditable. The men who com posed it bore the impress of intel ligence, of industrious habits, of sobriety. Of course, they were well dressed, foi no people on earth take a more laudable pride in their personal appearance than St. Paul's mechanics. They manifested pride— and who has more right to be proud than the man who earns an honest living for himself and his kindred by the sweat of his brow. They strode with a free and independent gait, lor the man whose skill makes his services Indespensable to the welfare of the community may well be independent. They were gentlemanly and courteous in behavior both in the city and at the picnic grounds, for they were reared in habits of politeness and do not forget that courtesy and kindliness are attributes that belong by inheritance to the yeomanry of the laud. A more creditable display has never been made than that of yesterday. There was pride but not arrogance: there was conscious strength without, boasting; there was a refinement that is better than mere politeness: there was gayety without boisterousuess. Taken «all in all. the arrangements were as perfect as .it was possible to make tnem, and the day was free from scenes of rudeness, undue hilarity or evidences of debauch ery. St. Paul feels proud of her working classes. That pride has been intensified by the demonstration of yesterday. The observance throughout the coun try, as our numerous and elaborate tele graphic reports indicate, was general and impressive. Labor Day has very properly become a national event, and no day in all the year is more worthy of attention and consideration. MR. KBW-N'S ADDRESS. No apology is necessary for the space occupied by the address of \V. W. Er win' before the laboring men and women. "Whether agreeing in all respects with his views, no one can fail to enjoy and be impressed by a perusal of his utter ances. Always eloquent, the speaker fairly surpassed his previous efforts yesterday. The record of Labor Day in St. Paul would be incomplete with any portion of Mr. Erwin's remarks omitted. The exclusive publication of this document by the Globe, together with the gen eral report of Labor Day, both at home and abroad, makes our issue this morn ing a complete mirror of a day which has grown to be one of the most notable ■ of all the holidays observed in this country. DR. GRAVES' SUICIDE. It is verily true that "conscience cloth make cowards of us all." The suicide of Dr. Thatcher haves at Denver on .Sunday is a case in point. He stood accused of the murder of a wealthy widow, who died under suspicious cir cumstances two years ago last April. lie was tried, convicted and sentenced to be hanged. His case was carried to the supreme court of Colorado, where a supersedeas was granted and a new trial ordered. H£H Meanwhile the governor of the state was besieged with petitions for his par don. But the evidence of the prisoner's guilt was too strong to admit of any doubt, and the governor, to his credit be it said, refused to extend clemency. The uew trial ordered by the supreme court was to have taken place the present month, anil the doctor was kept In the Den ver jail, where he was accorded many privileges. When his cell was vis ited by the turnkey on Sunday morn ing, Dr. Graves was found dead. He had taken his own life, and a number of letters written by him told of the method employed and the reasons that impelled the act. The latter are trivial when weighed in the balance against a human life— the rapacity of lawyers and the disgrace of being dragged before a court of justice, stared at by gaping crowds, and being forced to see his name dragged into unpleasant noto riety in the columns of tiie newspapers. His protestations of innocence and superseusitiveuess to public criticism are ridiculous in viewjof the testimony and his conduct in his first trial. The evidence on that occasion, as already remarked, was convincing even to those who desired to believe him inno cent. It showed cold-blooded premedi tation—a diabolism rarely equaled In our criminal annals. His demeanor during the trial was one of careless in difference and heartless bravado, each by turns, and manifested with a view to effect upon the jury anil the public. He treated his conviction as a mani festation of the persecution of personal and professional enemies, and when he applied to the governor for a pardon it was in an imperious mood. lt is safe to say that it was not through fear of meeting the public gaze, nor yet to escape the rapacious lawyers or the inquisitive reporters that Dr. Graves took his life. lie doubtless knew that since his first trial additional evidence had been procured by the prosecution, and that a second rehearsal of the story would inevitably lead to conviction, and that in that event no influence which he could hope to command would save him from the gallows. He shrank— as who would not?— from such an ignominious ending, and resolved to forestall the operations of the law. If he had. been an innocent man, the knowledge of his innocence would have sustained him during the trial aud awakened within him a faith in ulti mate vindication. But be was guilty of the crime laid at his door, and his con science told him that ho deserved the gallows. His death by his own haud is not. as he affected to believe it would be, a demonstration of his innocence, but rather proof corroborative of his guilt. Innocent men in the full possession of their mental faculties do not seek a refuge in suicide from such an accusa tion. They value their good name abovo life, and will strusgio against death to the uttermost moment in the hope that their innocence may be established and their family inherit a name untarnished by crime. Cowards only — made cowards .THE : SAINT; PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY ; MORNING. SEPTEMBER 5, .893. by an accusing conscience— seek a sui cide's grave rather than an opportunity to vindicate a good name.'..:?? ? ? ■ — _: Chicago pawnbrokers aro out of cash, aud have been forced to refuse loans to their best customers, the gamblers, even though the security may be gilt-edged. The extraordinary run upon their re sources has been without precedent, and the winter is yet two months in the future. They can sell none of their forfeited pledges, and their shelves are laden with goods of every description. It isa bad omen for the poor— those who are compelled on occasions to hypoth ecate their lares and penates— that the chance of even that poor refuge is de nied them. The distress in store during the coming winter is terrible to contem plate. Gov. Tillman*, of South Carolina, and Gov. Waite, of Colorado, consti tute a bloodthirsty pair. The hitter's declaration that he was willing to go through blood up to his horse's bridle to preserve the monetary status otsilver was supposed, to be a great bluff, but Gov. Tim. man lias called him with the declaration that "the people ought to rise iv their might and put a stop toil [the reduction of the silver surplus], hanging some of the men who are caus ing it all, if it is necessary." Rant such as this may relieve the man who utters it of a superabundance of bile, but it alarms no one. "Pitching into Tom Reed afler his manly fight for sound money does not befit Democratic newspapers," says the Brooklyn Eagle. Does one righteous net atone for a multitude of sins? And shall we shut our eyes to the enormity of a crime because its perpetrator has performed some worthy deed? Demo cratic newspapers are not so easily blinded as to forget the evil that Reed has done in the past, even though they may approve his stand upon the silver question. «•• The supervising architect of the treasury is of the opinion that tne Chi cago postoffice building may endure tor a year longer, but may tumble down about the ears of the occupants before that time shall have elapsed. It is probably solicitude for the lives of Democratic aspirants for federal posi tions in Chicago that has moved Presi dent Cleveland to postpone appoint ments so long. Con-guess has not yet had time to squelch Davenportisin, but the post master at New York has evicted Dav enport himself trotn the federal build ing. If congress shall refuse to make an appropriation for the maintenance of Davenport, and he can no longer pro cure free lodgings in the. postoffice building, Johnny may conclude to go out of business of his own accord. : <**»■ A Chicago woman procured the arrest of a man there on the charge of being her truant husband, but at the examination in court failed to fully identify him, and he was discharged. To prevent the recurrence of such awk ward mistakes Chicago couples should arrange to live togther long enough to get acquainted with each otlier. Again- Robert T. Lincoln has come forward to deny that his father was a spiritualist. The denial was - unneces sary. Abraham Lincoln was too practical a man to dream dreams or see visions. His ouly dream was of a re | united country. That he did not live to witness a realization of this dream is - the saddest incident in his history. Senator Teller evidently expects to experience "a nipping and a biting air" before the special session of con gress is over, for he announces that he has brought his winter clothes with him to Washington. Winter clothes will not be as useful to the silverites as a spirit of resignation. That is. what they will need most. "Groggy Goggin" is the way some of the local papers allude to a certain judge who has achieved notoriety of late in Chicago, and the judge threatens to have the editors arraigned for con tempt of court. He would be an ex ceedingly bad editor who did not feel a profound contempt for such a court. The new liberty bell has arrived at the world's fair and been placed in posi tion. Its peal is said to be exceedingly loud, but it is doubtful if it will create as much excitement as a banana peel carelessly thrown upon the sidewalk. If, as charged during the campaign last fall, the Democratic platform was rotten and unsafe, why are the Repub lican senators so anxious to take a stand upon it? There must be a grain of in consistency somewhere. AT THE THEATERS. Opening of the John Drew Season at the Metropolitan. The audience at the Metropolitan opera house was greatly pleased last evening with the presentation of "The Masked Ball" by John Drew and his excellent support. It was an auspicious opening of the season with comedy of the higher class, and merited the un stinted expressions of satisfaction ac corded the presentation from the rising of the curtain on the first act until the close, sending the people away in the best of humor to congratulate each other on passing a delightful evening. The story is one of domestic situations and personal peculiarities rather than as the name implies, a scene at a mask ball. The characters chosen in the adaptation by Clyde Fitch from the French writers of the comedy are select ed with a design for features new to the stage here, and the personnel of the I company is excellently made to bring I out the strong situations of the play. The lines were given by the several members in a briglit.sparkling manner, accompanied with an intonation mid gesture that left little room for improve ment. John Drew has found a place at the front as a star in comedy, surpass ing the expectations ot the company, and reflecting credit on Charles Froh nian in placing him at the head of this company. Mr. Drew as the young phy sician. Dr. Paul Bloudet.who has played an old friend false in a love matter, pur trays a type of the refined comedy-farce that is seldom seen in the importations from the French. Miss Maud Adams, as Suzanne Blondet, the wife of Dr. Blondet, is petite and bright. She is a young woman with a very fascinating manner, and is deserving of the popu larity which she lias secured in the last year. She was in Hoyt's "Midnight Bell" two years ago, aud later made a hit in Frohmau's stock company. Last year she came to the front in tiie pres ent company, that being its first season, and she has bright prospects before her. Harry liar wood as Joseph Poulard, the partner of Dr. Blondet. has a char acter that is well suited to the play and well adapted to an actor that is well known to the public. Lewis Baker as Louis Martinoc.the deceived friend who was in love with Suzanne and lost her by trustiug to the doctor to propose for her haud in his name alter making in quiries as to her family, presents his part in a "natural manner. • Mme. Pou ' lard, the jealous wife and rigid mentor of the - Poulard -family, is a character taken by Miss Virginia Buchanan in a way that gives her an opportunity to ; show that sue is a strong accessory to the company. All the other members of the company are selected with a care to preserving the strong part of the scenes and bringing out the lines of the story in a bright and vivid manner. The. company deserves to and will draw' good houses at'the usual matinees and evening presentations of the week. "The Tornado" at the Grand. There is certainly nothing wanting in either the quantity, or effectiveness of the environments of "The Tornado," running this week at the Grand, for it has noi only one but many strong the- atric sensations in stage mechanics,, each one of which is elaborate in its way, and brings out unstinted applause from the audience. The climax of the" first act, the tornado from which the ■ play derives its name, is particularly well worked up. ' .ff ;.~ There is no doubt but that hypnotism *■ is answerable for a good many things for which no cause or the wrong cause was formerly assigned. In the - Byron play, "The Dark Continent," which will be presented for the first time in this city at the Grand next week, the sub ject is brought home to us -in a thrilling way. The action of the piece, which is laid in picturesque garb in the famous diamond fields of South Africa, turns upon the impenetrable mystery of tiie hypnotic art. A. few years ago this clever work of the playwright would have been pronounced an absurdity; now hypnotism, while hot within the pale of exact sciences, is recognized as a palpable fact. Thus the play works strongly upon the lively imagination, It suggests the extreme of a terrible un seen power, the scope of whicn has not yet been determined. The New Boilman Players. The new members of the Boilman company have all beeu selected, and are now in the city rehearsing for the open ing, which is to take place Sunday evening, Sept. 17, at the Metropolitan opera house. Several of the old mem bers, notably Martha Neumann. Chris tian Schober and little Ella Collm-y, have been retained, and the lovers of the German drama will fiud that the Boll man aggregation this season is one of the strongest German troops in the country. The addition of the new material has strengthened the company and the retention of the old favorite's will give it a foundation that will make a splendid whole. The play for the opening has not yet been definitely decided upon, but will be published next Sunday. Following are the actors and their different lines: The ladies consist of Marie Handung, heroine and leading lady Emilie Han dling, second lady; Ella Collmer," juve nile parts; Ilennig Boilman, maidenly characters; Martha Neumann, first sou brette; Helene Collmer, elderly comic parts. The gentleman cast is: Theo dore Boilman, bonvivants and love characters; Willig Loesch. juvenile hero; Felix Seilfert, juvenile comedian; Christian Schober, lirst comedian; Adolph Reli feld, leading hero and lover;. Julius Collmer. elderly and character parts; Hans We vers, general comedian; Woif Fromknechl, general utility, Sacred Concert at Auditorium. The management of the Auditorium has made arrangements with the Na tional Colored Jubilee Singers from the Madison Square Garden, New York, and commencing next Sunday with a sacred concert, the company will ap pear each evening tor the balance of the week in their regular entertainment. Tliere are fifty ot the leading colored artists in the country, a colored band of unusual excellence, and each evening, barring Sunday, the cake walk will be presented. It will be remembered by many that the New York papers were full of illus trations and caricatures of the oddities ot the cake walk some months ago. The bill presented here will be the sameand -popular prices will prevail. AT THE HOTELS. A. W. Stiles, of the interior depart ment at Washington, who has for months past been circulating through- North Dakota as the special ageut of the government land department, re turned yesterday from a short vacation at his home in the East and put up at the Merchants'. Mr. Stiles has been* doing a magnificent work in North Da kota unearthing laud frauds, and has procured the indictment of several very prominent persons, who. as the evi dence seems to indicate, have made large fortunes through their pecula tions. A wealthy and very prominent banker of that state is now awaiting his trial in the United States court on the charge of extensive land frauds. A very gratifying characteristic of Mr. Stiles is that he takes them as they come With out regard to rank or fortune. £_____ The Viscount d'Aubigny d'Assy, a handsome youug Frenchman, and mem ber of one of the oldest families of notab ility of Normandy, France.arrived in St. Paul yesterday and put up ot the Ryan.

EX-PRESIDENT HARRISON TALKS TO r THREE THOUSAND VETERANS. ."UEItXOiCIES OF THE PAST. Thirty Thousand Blueeoats Take X Possession of tha Hoosier a"'- Capital — Hurst, Adams and -/ Lincoln heading Candidates :i for Commander —Suspension of Farnham Post. Indianapolis. Sept. Thanks to the weather and successful carrying out of the admirable arrangements per fected by the local committees, the twenty-seventh national encampment ot the Grand Army opened most aus piciously today. So far as the number of visitors from outside points is con cerned the success of the encampment is already assured. All day long the --railroads poured -streams of people into the Hoosier capital. No less than fifty twins, with an average of ten cars to .each, are reported by the officials as having arrived at the union depot for the twelve hours ending at 7 o'clock to night, and as each car had its full quota of passengers, to say nothing of those in which even standing room was at a pre mium, somewhere in the neighborhood thirty thousand people must have been turned loose into the high ways and byways of Indianapolis during the day. Not all of these, how ever, were veterans. In fact, the boys in blue are almost lost in the throngs. The hardy, hoop-pole yeomanry, with their wives and children and other rel atives, near and remote, form a large proportion of the arrivals, lt is a real live national Grand Army encamp ment within easy reaching distance; and to keep away from lt would be worse thau treason. And so they are here in their TENS OF THOUSANDS with the prospects that their numbers will be doubled before another sunset. As tothe veterans, the arrivals outside of the state posts are not by any means up to expectations. A good many states send less than half tbe total that had been scheduled a month ago as certain to be . here ; while a few are likely to make even a poorer showing, lii the encampment proper fully a hundred delegates, if not more, will fail to an swer to the roll call. Hard times and the continued striugency of the money market, especially in the far Western states, is the ascribable cause. But the crowds are here, and even if there are a quartette of civilians to every veteran, Indianap olis is just as well contented and happy. Almost on the very soot in Military park where, thirty-one years ago, the citizens presented to Col. Harrison and his newly organized Seventieth regi ment of volunteers the standards of Indiana and the United States to cary , befoie them to the war, the ex-president tins afternoon dedicated Camp Wilder, the name bestowed upon some 300 tents ' in which the reunion of veterans and soldier societies will be in full blast for the remainder of the week. .; About 3,000 people participated in the exercises, which included addresses by W. A. Ketcham, Gen. John T. Wilder, for whom the camp is named, and Gen. Harrison; patriot music by the band aud the raising of the stars and stripes to the top of a towering pole. When theex-president was introduced he was greeted with a volley of cheers that was thrice repeated. 5He apologized to his . fellow citizens for having remained so long at the seashore while they were WORKING HARD for the success of the encampment, ad mitted that he felt in some degree "a shirk." indulged in "some interesting reminiscences regarding the park and surrounding neighborhood in the days of the war, and eulogized the bravery and devotion to the country of the Indi ana troops. "No Indiana soldier," said the ex-president, "need be ashamed to open to the world, in friendly competi tion, with the records of the sister states, the story of Indiana's part in the great rebellion. But the beauty of it all was that the regiments from Indiana and those from Illinois; and those from Ohio were all gone. They were not Indiana's soldiers, Ohio's or Illinois' soldiers, but soldiers of the United States. The cause was one, the glory is one, and visiting comrades from other states, we are not here to exalt ourselves, but to take your hands as comrades, and share with you the glory of the greatest result that was ever achieved by war in hu man history. If there is any man any where who does not honor the Union veteran he does not live in|lndianapolis. It tliere is any man anywhere who sus pects him, or who would detract in the smallest degree from the merits of his service, he is not here today. You will not meet him on our streets. If there is any one who can ever find it in his heart to speak ill of the wounded or dis abled veterans of the war. of the vete ran who has fallen by the way, alter brave struggles tor near thirty years in the pursuit of civil life, he does not live here. MV COMRADES, these tents aoout us are pitched many days' inarch nearer home than those in which you dwelt here in IStil. They will stand but for a day and vanish. You go to your own homes, to the shelter of those roof-trees and to the com panionship of those families from which you separated yourself in time of war, and to which you returned with an in creased love and consecration. You will go back to pick up the duties of your citizenship" with a higher sense of these duties,for the glory and the sweet ness of this flag, than you had before you came here to mingle with these comrades, to listen to these stirring songs, and to stir each other by remem brances of those bloody days." Now that a goodly proportion of the men who make and unmake the rulers of the organization ate on the ground, the woods aie full of available candi dates for the office of commander-in chief.

More than this is not claimed for it more than this it would -not be wise tor it to possess. In order that the Roman pontiff may be free to act as the arbi trator of the affairs of our universal church throughout the nations, he must not be the subject of any nower or na tion himself. For such subjection would detract from his impartiality as well as from his independence. It is unjust to all of us throughout the world that the head of our religion should be under the suspicion even of being controlled, constrained or influenced by the tem poral authority of any nation claiming political jurisdiction of his person or his surroundings. The speaker declared himself not an enemy to the sentiment of united Italy. But, he said. Rome was not necessary tor the united Italy. Rome has not now, even if it ever had, any strategic, political ot commercial value as the capital of an Italian monarchy or of an Italian republic, or of an Italian confederation of any kind. Italy would be stronger without than with it, because there would then no longer be the friction of the religious sentiment that must con tinue to struggle against distinction in ranks and that must necessarily suc ceed sooner or later in modifying those conditions. Rome should be a great free city, once again the CITY OF THK SOUL. United Italy will make no real sacrifice of nationality by the restoration of Rome to the popes. The world would be the gainer by securing anew the in dependence of the holy see. Rev. Walter Elliott", whose address treated of the '•missionary work or the church in the United States," is one of the most notable members of the organ ization known as the l'aulist Fathers, the ranks of which are mostly made up of converts from Protestantism. To Miss Mary J. Onahan, whose piquant writings have made her name widely fa miliar, was given the honor of being the first woman to address a Catholic con gress in America. Her subject was "Isabella, the Catholic," and it was handled in a manner that left no doubt she would not by any means be the last woman to appear in Catholic congresses, The last speaker of the afternoon, one in whom a vast amount of interest was taken on account of his eminence in the world of letters and because of the re cent conversion of himself and wife from Protestantism, was George Par sons Lathrop, who contributed an able paper on the "Consequences and Results of the Discovery of the New World." Mr. Lathrop is the sou-in-law of Na thaniel Hawthorne. Tonight large meetings were held, at which addresses were made by distinguished delegates to the congress, lay and clerical. LEO'S LETTER.
