i ; PAJtT TWO. ,
The Gloke begins this morning the
publication of the coupons'necessary. to
secure Part Two of the "Sights and
Scenes of the World." There will be
six coupons published, numbered from
one to six, and the date changed each
day. Any three of these coupons, ac
companied by 10 cents or a similar sum
in one or two-cent postage stamps, will
secure Part Two.
Persons desiring to secure these valua
ble views should remember that there
are twenty parts, and if you fail to cut
out the coupons as published it will
cost 25 cents to obtain each one of the
parts when it is too late to get the
coupons.
The object of running six coupons on
each part is to enable those who may
wish to obtain two sets of the work to
do so. Do not send in coupons one,
two and three for Part Two, and cou
pons four, five and six for Part Three.
If you only wish one copy of the work,
after you have secured three coupons
for Part Two wait until next week, when
coupons for Part Three will be printed.
While the demand for Part Oue lias
been something enormous. It is evident
that many have been neglectful. We
accordingly print on the first page this
morning; and will continue for six days
to publish, a special coupon. You can
cut out one special coupon and send it
in with 10 cents und secure Tart: One.
There will be nc other special coupons
offered for succeeding parts. Atler this
week all back numbers will cost 25
cents for each part. The special
coupon is offered to enable ever/ one
to begin at the beginning on the 10-cenl
basis.
In alluding to the "Sights and Scenes
of the World" last Sunday we spoke of
them as being the Stoddard views. The
Globe does not sail under false pre
tenses, and for this reason, as well as an
act of justice to the party obtaining
them, it is proper to state that they
were secured from another source, and
are the most complete collection in the
world. The illustrated numbers we are
presenting can stand on- their own
merits without fictitious bolstering, and
on their merits the Globe offers them
to the public.
WABHBURU DID IT.
The passage of the repeal bill has
precipitated an inquiry by the leading
journals of the day which is of the su
premest importance. Who deserves the
overshadowing honor of having accom
plished it?
The fight was a heated one. The
senate chamber became for the moment
a fiery furnace, in which was generated
a caloric so intense and all-consuming
that at times it threatened to fuse even
that most stubborn of compounds, sena
torial courtesy, into a white hot cinder.
No proposed legislation since the storied
season of the war has so provoked the
animosities of statesmen. Into the
proposition of repeal or non-repeal was
injected all of the gall and bitterness of
personal gain, of private obtainment, of
public profit, of corporate greed. For
the first time in years this overshadow
ing question tore into warring factions
both the trreat political parties of the
country, and made antagonists of men
who erstwhile had been bosom friends.
For a season Damon strove to strangle
his beloved Pythias, and David carried
the deadly razor in his boot while "lay
ing" for his tender and affectionate
Jonathan. All the finer social feelings
were for the moment transmuted from
the wine of love into the gall and worm
wood of hate. It was terrible while it
lasted.
Since the battle royal has ended the
newspapers of the entire country have
occupied the talent and genius of almost
their whole editorial forco in telling
how it was done and expressing grave
and noteworthy opinions as to who did
it. The Globe is naturally a modest
and retiring sheet. It never presumes
to assert that it knows more than its in
telligent neighbors, and hence it haa
not ventured to thrust its oar into the
discussion of the inherited ownership of
the post obits of victory. It has been
fairly contented with the fact of repeal;
and hence has manifested no particu
lar inclination toward tha hero worship
of the fellow or fellows who led the
forces. Like Benjamin Harrison (of
sacred and tender memory) we have
rather inclined to the view that the
finger of Divine goodness and eternal
justice was discoverable in the outcome
of the event, and have permitted the
matter to recline upon the theory of the
Inscrutable Providential equities.
But our intelligent cotemporaries
will not have it that way. The spirit
of the mediaeval centuries still obtains
with most of them; and they will per
sist in burning incense at the altar of
some great man. The event is so over
shadowing that it must have a hero,
and while there is a singular want of
unanimity among them as to the identity
of the modern Hercules who performed
this superhuman feat, they ar<s all in
strict accord in sinking p scans ot praise
to somebody.
Of course the large majority of our
Democratic neighbors award the crown
to President Cleveland. This is only
reasonable, and, from every point of
view, allowable. Mr. Cleveland is pres
ideut. He is also a Democrat. He has
stood firmly upon his feet while other
strong men were swayed by the clam
orous cyclones of self-seeking de ma
agogues. His firmness, his unalterable
integrity, his honesty, founded upon
the rock of conscience; his care for the
real welfare of the country; his stead
fast determination that the finances of
the nation should not be Mexicanized
with his consent— all these virtues were
admirable in their recent manifestation.
But they were not new. The country
has for years known that Grover Cleve
land was an honest man, a firm man, a
self-poised raan— a man that stood with
out the attachment of a hitching weight,
More than any other influence— save
one, possibly— the victory is doubtless
attributable to the admirable qualities ot
character possessed by Mr. Cleveland.
Other Eastern newspapers have in
sisted that Senator Hill did it. Now,
Mr. ilill showed wonderful nerve, great
adroitness and skillful training in de
bate. That was ail. His attitude was
dramatic and catching— a species of
theatrical pomp and circumstance, like
Ajax defying the lightning, for in
stance; or Richard, overthrown, howl
ing like a dervish for another horse and
a surgeon to biud up his wounds; or
Richelieu making a chaik mark around
the sweet and winsome maiden, and
challenging even the wearer of a crown
to desecrate the sanctuary thus impro
vised. This is not much. David is a
good actor, and he merely exercised
dramatic talent, well cultivated,* In the
interest of an honest and a very desir
able measure.
Then come our Republican exchanges
slobbering over Uncle Jolm Sherman.
•THpaT-gffilT Paul IBatLy GLOBE: Sunday morning. November 12;^18C^S^lST' r ?lGlgi
He was the giant that crushed the silver
serpent! Senator Sherman is a ricfet
nice oia man. He has done the state
some service; but it is sod to be com
pelled to confess that in the course of a
long public career he lias also doue
some harm. In Washington it is even
questioned whether he was actually
favorable to the passage of the bill—
the bill pure and simple, unadorned
with a bond issue amendment.
But let the procession move. Senator
Sherman is the Ohio man that did it.
Of course, Ohio eternally and forever
has a man who is always doiug it.
There is no predicting what cataclysms
would not come to the republic were it
not for the saving grace which finds
lodgment In the Ohio man.
Then we have Voorhees, of Indiana.
He did it. The Tall Sycamore wabbled
in the gusty air; the malarial Wabash
heaved its mighty bosom, and the re
sult was discoverable in the passage of
repeal. In lowa it was Allison. In
Maryland, Gorman. In Delaware, Gray,
and fiijally the pyramid of repeal finds
itself resting upon its apex. In Rhode
Island Aldrich was the Atlas bearing
upon bis brawny slioulders the destinies
of the universe.
The Globe is nothing if not patriotic.
It firmly believes in the system of
patronizing home industries. There is
nothing that can be done by any com
mouwealth of this glorious Union of
States that cannot be surpassed by
Minnesota. We have the champion state
of the blessed sisterhood. We have an
atmosphere more bracing; clearer sun
shine, and more of it; blizzards that are
more sweeping, and come oftener;
colder weather in winter, and hotter
in summer; broader prairies, and more
beautiful forests; bigger lakes, and
longer rivers; bvainier men, and sweet
er women, than any other equal num
ber of square miles on the greon earth.
Nothing beneath the big shining sun
gets away from L'Etoile du Nord. From
pine lands and iron mines to political
combinations, built upon fine work, our
splendid state is in it.
It is therefore a proud moment when
the Globe prints the words: vVashburn
was the man who repealed the purchas
ing clause of the Sherman act. In sea
son—and out ot season also— (for very
frequently Senator Washburn is far
more active than useful) he predicted
the triumph of repeal. During the entire
contest he carried his heart upon his
sleeve for the free silverites to peck at.
He wrestled with Morgan, hobnobbed
with Sherman, pulled in the harness
with Ilill, predictad daily to the report
ers, and made himself altogether active
and efficient. At one time it even
seemed probable that the vice president
would call him to the chair, and permit
him to everlastingly demolish senatorial
courtesy by re-enacting the role of Czar
Reed. But, pshaw! What's the use of
multiplying evidence? Doubtless the
junior senator from Minnesota is pre
pared to admit the soft impeachment.
If he does not, he will only be influ
enced by his extreme and proverbial
modesty,
llis masterly colloquy with Morgan,
when Morgan told him he (Morgan) was
responsible for what he said in or out of
the chamber, and asked him (Washburn)
if he understood that remark, and
Waahburn coyly admitted he did, was
the turning point and doubtless secured
repeal.
As the Glore rings down the curtain
on the last act of this transcendent
drama, will the orchestra please strike
up, "Lo, the Conquering Ilero Comes!"
and play it strong, and steaay, and
slow, like a funeral dirge, for fear the
audience will think the company has
been enacting a classical comedy. "
THE USES OP HERETICS.
The old saying, "The blood of the
martyrs is the seed of the church," has
lost its significance of late years. To
be sure, there are martyrs today, as
there were in olden times, but they do
not suffer as they did then. The dark
and loathsome dungeon does not now
yawn to receive them into a living
tomb, nor are they thrown to the wild
beasts or burned at the stake for the
delectation of gaping crowds. Physical
torture is no longer the fate of those
who dissent from accepted theological
doctrines. They are simply tried for
heresy, the fellowship of the church is
withdrawn from them, and they eo
forth into the world, start independent
organizations, draw fat salaries, achieve
notoriety through the columns of the
press, and become the lions of the hour.
A few of them, through lack of mental
power, sink into oblivion, but the ma
jority ride upon the topmost wave of
popular favor and live on the fat of the
land.
It requires brains to be a successful
heretic nowadays. Men of mediocrity
can never be prosperous in the role. In
the first place, it requires advertising —
judicious advertising— and this requires
tact, though not money. The heretic, in
order to win fame, must first become
notorious. He starts with a sensational
sermon, in which he disputes some ot
the cardinal dogmas of the church to
which he owes allegiance. Then will
follow a protest from some leading
members of his congregation ; then a
trial by the lower ecclesiastical court,
which usually decides against the
preacher. This is followed by an appeal
to higher authority, which results in the
withdrawal of fellowship from the" of
fender. Each of these proceedings is
reported at length in the columns of the
daily newspapers, and talked about in
church circles. They Droduce schisms
in the church, which form food for gos
sip in and out of the circle in which
they originate; the opposing forces
contend in communications to both the
secular and religious press, and all
the time the preacher is chuckling at
the row he has created. When he is
finally driven out of the church he is
followed by a large portion of his own
congregation, and attracts to his minis
trations many who had previously ac
knowledged no religious allegiance
whatever.
The development of the modern here
tic has also had a notable influence
upon the theology of the age generally.
There has long been an emphatic pro
test against some of the tenets of me
diaeval Calvinism and the anathematiza-
tions of Knox. There is scarcely a
church in the United States today that
would tolerate a clergyman who should
preach the doctrine of infant damna
tion as tauerht by Calvin and his dis
ciples, or the doctrine of the total de
pravity of mankind. Such theories are
repuguant to our conceptions of a just
and merciful creator. No mother, en
dowed by God with the maternal in
stinct of love for her offspring, can fiud
it in her heart to believe that tiie infant
that has been snatched from her em
brace by death will suffer endless tor
ment simply because it has not been
baptized. The theory was conceived In
ignorance and fiendiahness— in a terri
ble misconception of the character of
the Deity. Men also prefer to believe
that their fellow men are inherently just
and upright, and that It is circum
stances and associations that render
them otherwise, not natural bent and
inclination.
The heretics have brought about this
wholesome change in popular senti
ment. Jonathan Eawards was among
the first of the class in this country.
He was not, however, a radical come
outer. for he clung tenaciously to other
indefensible doctrines which the church
he founded in America has since re
pudiated. Swing's secession from the
Presbyterian church, followed as it has
been by the Andover schism, by Prof.
Briggs and Henry Preserved Smith, has*
doue more to liberalize that orgauiza-"
tion than all else that has occurred in
centuries; and, although the catechism
aim creed remain substantially the
same, their dogmas are not insisted.'
upon. The prosecution of Dr. Thomas
by the Methodists opened the eyed of
that denomiuatiqn to the fact that the
world moves more than any other event
during the preseut generation. Tha
defection of Bishop Cheney from the^
Episcopal church caused a schism o$
protestants against ancient dogmas thac'
shook that organization to its founda- '"
tion, and has resulted in liberalizing its
practices, if not its doctrines, so as to, ,
conform them to the spirit of the age.
The popularity of these heretics is
not always lasting. As a rule, it is of j
mushroom growth and decadence. But !
the impress they leave upon the church
at large and the community is perma
nent and beneficent. The public cares
but little fa these days about the fate
of individuals, but as long as heretics
succeed in dissipating old prejudices
and superstitions, and effecting re
forms in church government ana disci
pline, they will serve a useful purpose.
POVKRIY AND GENIUS.
Poverty is not a condition that the
average man strives to attain, and yet
to poverty the world owes its greatest
achievements. It is unquestionable that
without the stimulus that poverty gives
to effort, civilization would be belated
in its progress, literature would be yet
in its infancy, art would be but crude,
and the useful sciences undreamed of.
Poverty is the handmaid of progress.
If one glances over the lists of the
men whom the world calls great he wil
find that the vast majority were of ob
scure origin, born and reared In poverty,
striving against an adverse destiny,
continually fighting to keep the gaunt
wolf of want from their door3. The
greatest sculptors and painters of all
ages rose from the lower classes. They
spent their lives In arduous toil and
study, and died in poverty. Posterity
has given them a niche in tne temple of
fame, but men scorned th?m in life.
"A hundred cities strove for Homer dead,
Through which the living Homer begged his
bread."
Genius is seldom appreciated during
the lifetime of its possessor. The fame
of Michael Angelo, of Canova, Kubens
and Corregtiio, now so great, was but
ill-rewarded in their day and genera
tion. Their beginnings were humbie.
and they were always harassed by
poverty. The greatest dramatists and
poets were not appreciated until their
bones were molderiug in the grave.
Inventors were ridiculed and repressed,
but left to their children legacies of
boundless achievement in the world
of mechanics aud science. Their chil
dren enjoy their fame and the material
results of their genius; out as a rule
their lives were spent in constant fear
of want. It is true that sonia in our
own time have achieved weaitn and
greatness, but tho majority have had
no such rewards. Others have reaped
where they have sown. The recogni
tion that they sought in life lias been
bestowed only after they have ceased
to be.
The acquisition of wealth by a genius
seems often to destroy all incentive to
sustained and systematic effort to excel.
The very agency— money— which can
be best employed to foster and encour
age the creative powers of the intellect
often destroys them. Tnere was, a few
years ago, no more charming humorist
in the world thau Mark Twain. His
quaint conceits kept the whole country
in good humor. He was poor, but in a
moment of abstraction married a rich
wife, and has been able to live in luxury
ever since. From that moment all sense
o£ humor deserted him, and the little r.e
has penued since his wedding day has
been but a faint suggestion of his for
mer brilliancy. Bill Nye was once
classed among our most talented humor
istic writers, aud grew rapidly rich.
As his wealth increased his fund of wit
vanished, aud for years his writiugs
have been as barren of suggestion as
the bosom of a placid frog-poud. Ar
temus Ward was always delightful and
always poor. So with the "Fat Contrib
utor," "Josh Billings," and "John
Phoenix/' The "Detroit Free Press
man" began to "peter out" as soon as
he begfin to accumulate money, and the
"Oil City Derrick man" lost his grip on
the public as soon as his creditors erased
to bother him.
And so it is in nearly every depart
ment of human progress. Men cease
to be aggressive or creative when the
wolf ceases to bowl at their door. The
innate love of ease and luxury is fatal
to genius. There are, it is true, men
of letters, of art and of science who
have never known poverty in its gen
erally accepted form, but these have
not been pioneers of progress. They
have followed in the paths that pov'
erty has outlined, and have discovered
inauy new beauties alone their margin.
The men who have been spurred on by
necessity, however, have been the
greatest discoverers. They have plant
cd standards in the unknown wilder
nesses ; they have cleared the thorns from
the untrodden fastnesses of thought;
they have reared monuments upon the
rugged mountain peaks that were in
accessible to those reared in luxury.
The world owes to poverty a great
measure of that which it now possesses
in art, in the drama and general litera
ture, and In invention. Affluence ba
gets indolence; poverty stimul ates en
deavor in every walk of life. The two
are seldom combined.
"The Tug of War."
This is the title of the beautiful pict
ure which goes with next Sunday'3
Globe. It is a gem.
On Tuesday morning the usual pre
miums will be announced for the Art
Supplement this morning.
THE LATE UNPLEASANTNESS.
[Written for the Globe.l
Oh, they pounded us and hounded us— they
generally confounded us.
And when they had surrounded us, they
swiftly swept the deck;
They battled us, they rattled us, and par
alyzed and settled us.
And when, like beeves, they cattled us— we
got it in the neck.
They paddled us, they saddled us and quietly
skedaddled us,
■^orfof a moment coddled us— we didn't
get a speck:
They tramped on us. they stamped on us, up
set the oil and lauiu on us;
They rather put the clamp on us— we got it
in the neck.
They hoodooed us, they bloodied us, they
hardly goody-goodiea us.
And when they had ex-Uoodied us— oh,
what a ruiu and wreck;
They Crokered us, they soatered us. and, as
it were, hot-pokered us.
Then having carmine-oehred us — we got
it in the neck.
The g. o. pee, hurroo, hurree! And so say all
of us, say we,
A User and a three-times-three we'd give
'em with a will;
We're proud of you, the crowd of you, we
feel disposed to bow to you,
But it's hard to crow real loud for you
when Virginia's with us still.

has instructions to carry out a policy of
the government he can call upon the
government's naval forces to assist him,
but in this case that would devolve upon
Minister Willis the duty of present
ing his credentials to the present
government, aad then proceeding
to take steps to deoose it from
power. This embarrassment is pointed
out by persons conversant with diplo
matic methods as sufficient to preclude
that method of procedure. There are
also embarrassments in another possi
ble course which is suggested, which is
that Minister Willis may have been ac
crculited to Queen Liliuokalaui herself
and to the former government. Secre
tary Gresham argues that the ptovision
al government expires by its own limi
tation, and that might involve the ig
noring of the present government, but
the present government lias been
equally recognized by the United States
as tliK government "de jure." These
are only speculations, but are suggested
by persons well versed in the possible
course of such a question.
Jt is probable that the instructions of
Minister Willis will be found to be to
ascertain if the provisional government
ill Hawaii will consent to retire peace
ably and make way for the restoration
of Queen Liliuokalani, yielding to the
employment only of such moraf suasion
as this official request from the United
States minister may carry, if they re
fuse to yield to this pressure, Minister
Willis is probably empowered only to
wait for further instructions.

cording to schedule time, a week from
today, Nov. IS.
Minister Willis was due to arrive in
Honolulu last Saturday. He will there
fore have been there a week when the
steamer sails from there for San Fran
ci.4eo today. This would give time for
Minister Willis to have taken some
action in accord with his instructions
lie fore she sails.
Frank B. Hastings, secretary of the
Hawaiian legation, declines to express
an opinion, as he has received no offi
cial notiGcation of any chance between
the two governments. If instructions
have been given to Minister Willis to
depose the government lie represents,
he points out that there is nothing in
Secretary Gresham's letter to show the
fact.
STEVENS DOESN'T LIKE IT.
The Ex-Mtnister Is Bitter in His
Denunciation.
Augusta, Me., Nov. 11. — £x-Minis
ter Stevens was shown a copy ot Secre
tary Greshain's letter tins morning on
the Hawaiian question. When asked
his opiniou, he replied:
"The position to which Secretary
Gresham has seen fit to commit himself
is so extraordinary, so void of a real
foundation of truth, so calumnious of
the living and the dead that I have no
extended reply to make at this time. 1
prefer to let time and events and history
decide as to the issue the secretary has
raised against the provisional govern
ment, and tha aspersions he sees fit to
ca&t on the deceased captain of the Bos
ton, the officers under Ins command, and
myself.
'•The way the United States minister
and officers of the Boston discharged
their responsibilities at Honolulu in
January last was more than covered by
Secretary Bayard's instructions, ap-
Dioved by President Cleveland, of July
12, 1887. Secretary Gresham has al
lowed his party prejudices and animos
ities to raise an issuo which congress,
a full sifting o£ facts, and an intelligent
public opinion will determine justly."
Sax Fuancisco, Nov. 11.— The Chron
icle, commenting editorially upon the
Hawaiian question, calls Commissioner
Blouut's labors in Honolulu "a farcical
investigation;" and, referring to Secre
tary Gresham's recommendation that
the queen be restored to the throne,
says: "This is a new business for an
American president to engage in. There
is strong ground for believing that the
restoration of the monarchy will prove
the death blow to Amerlcau interests iu
the islands, and that perhaps the de
struction of those interests may be ac
companied by acts of violence.for which
the American people will bold Cleve
land responsible."
GRESHAM IS RIGHT.
The Secretary Has Reached the
Merits of the Controversy.
San Fbancisco, Nov. 11.— The Post
says editorially : Mr. Gresham has the
distinguished honor to be right in his
report on the Hawaiian "revolution."
This will accoant for the unpopularity
that his document will bring him.
Those people who had no selfish interest
to serve did not hesitate to say that the
gentlemen who composed the provis
ional government of Hawaii were
guilty of treason in deposing the
queen, and were well aware of
the fact that the representative of the
United States at Honolulu had aided
them in their treachery. The dooument
prepared aha presented by the secretary
of state reached the merits bi the con
troversy, and advises that which 19 emi
nently right and proper. It is to be
hoped that the deposed queen will be
re-established in Her rights, of which
she has^ been wrongfully divested by
meddling and jealous factions. Gresham
is plainly right and sensible, and our
hope is that he will be sustained."
The Evening Bulletin (Rep.) says:
Are we to make war on the provisional
government whicn we have recognized?
If fcx-Miuister Stevens was wrong in
pulling down a government (provided
the facts were really so) in a foreign
country, what warrant has Mr. Gresham
for intervening to set up another? Pres
ident Cleveland has now either to ac
cept tne advice of bis secretary of state
or reject it.

FINE
FURS.
We don't know just what io say to you for Sunday. It may be warm
and Furs not look good to you, but it looks now as though it might snow, and, if
it does, end iurns cold, seme 01 ycu will be sorry you have delayed so long in
purchasing. This is a season when stocks ere unusually light, buying will come
in a rush later on, and mauulaciurers simply can't suppty the whole public at
one time. Perhaps ycu den't believe this, but it's SO, and there will be difficulty
in getting nice fur or Cloth Cloaks in any reasonable time when cold
weather actually ccmes. We are fairly well fixed. We have an elegant
line of novelties in "Electric Seal" Capes, 30 to 36 inches long, with full, wide
sweep. These are goods totally different from what Dry Goods people
show, and are a serviceable, durable and beautiful Winter wrap, at $40.00,
$45.00, $60.00 and $75.00.
OTTER QARHENTS are our specialty, and we think we sell more
than all other dealers in the two cities; in iact, we KNOW we do. We have
an elegant line of about torty of these Cloaks just now. in 30, 32 and 34 lengths,
that are unsurpassed anywhere. This article will be very difficult to get lati
this year, as Otter of desirable shades are scarce and high, and it takes time to
turn out an Otter WELL Prices, $135, $150, $160 and $175.
SEAL QARHENTS. You can get a bargain from us in this article,
as (for the times) I*3 are overstocked. We have elegant Alaska Seal Garments
in all the different patterns, as well as a few very choice Dyed Otter Cloaks. If
you want Seal or Otter, come in, and we will meet your ideas of price and give
you QUALITY j\ can't get elsewhare.
