Great GLOBE Offer on the Sixth Page. VOL. XV. iTWASABOGMEBAND Duluth Republicans Put Themselves in a Box AND SHUT THE LID DOWN HARD. Seek to Have Democrats De nounce the Wilson Bill. THEY FAIL IN IT MISERABLY, And Shame-Facedly Sneak Away to Another Hall. RINGING DEMOCRATIC RESOLVES Special to the Glote. Duluth, Minn., Dec. 2S.— The very cleverly put up scheme ot the Repub lican machine here, abetted by six or seven renegade Democrats, to get a mass meeting protest against free iron ore reacted in the most ultra fashion today. The Democrats caught on and turned the scheme into a veritable boomerang for the Republicans. Last week a call for a meeting to discuss the question of the removal of the duty on Iron ore as proposed by the Wilson bill was prepared and circulated at the instance of some machine Republicans and a few Democrats who are engaged in what is oy courtesy termed promot ing iron projects, or booming and fak ing, as less elegantly called. Demo crats generally caught on later to the fact that it was a Republican game. The call was signed largely or entirely by Democrats. When the time came for calling the meeting to order at the city hall this afternoon the Democrats were there in force. The council cham ber and the corridors and stairs leading to it weie crowded. T. T. Hudson called the meeting to order and nom inated C. O. BALDWIN FOR CHAIRMAN, the motion being immediately seconded. Then E. C. Gridley attempted to gain tne organization for the Republicans, and here was where Mr. Gridley over estimated his personal popularity, He attempted to block the organization with his mouth, but while the mouth wagged the organization proceeded by the election of Mr. Baldwin as chair man by a great majority. Then Gridley was allowed to explain, and C. A. Towne, a Republican, was permitted to indulge in one of his customary flights of meaningless language. Towne threat ened to hold a separate meeting if the protectionists present, less than a quar ter of the whole number, were not allowed to run things according to the Republican machine programme. C. P. Maginnis said it ought to be conducted as a non-partisan meeting, but that the Republicans were attempting to ravish the Democrats of St. Louis county. Mayor d'Autremont said the Republi cans were responsible for getting a dozen Democrats to call the meeting after t«*i days of hard work, and none but Democrats were allowed to sign the call. It looked like an attempt to get the Democrats to STULTIFY THEMSELVES before the country. As a Democrat, be certainly would not allow the attempt to go through without a strong protest. Then Towne moved to make Col. Harris, a Democrat, lately arrived from Kansas, chairman, but the colonel was not in on lit, and J. Adam Bede just then got up on a desk to make a speech in answer to numerous calls. Before Bede could say anything the Republicans moved to make Gridley chairman. Gridley went up on the platform alongside of the other chair man. By similar process Snively was made seceetary for the protectionists, and W. R. Spencer for the regular Democrats. Gridley read resolutions against the Wilson bill, which were de cided carried by the protectionists, and Baldwin immediately read resolutions Indorsing the administration's efforts to decrease the tariff, and recommended that there be no changes in the Wilson bill's free list. The protectionists then withdrew to the Temple opera house. Bede made a characteristic speech in the council chamber for free ore, which was loudly applauded, The resolutions backing up the Wilson bill were reread so that everybody could understand them, and were carried without a dissenting vote. Attorney Hollembaeck made a strong speech on the necessity of supporting the Demo cratic party in carrying out Democratic principles. John Rustgard told of his surprise at Gridley's new stand, and told instances of how Gridley had pre viously demurred to him that THE CUBAN MIXES could not compete in this country with the Mesaba ores. . He also read from the News Tribune of September an article telling of the big profits to be made out of the Mesaba ores. He didn't believe the ore tariff cut any figure with the Mesaba range. Z. D. Scott, a prominent lumberman, supposed this question had been decided a year and a half ago. He didn't know why anybody should be nervous over it, when there was a corner here in ore. Although a lumberman, he was not afraid of free lumber. He thought on the whole it would be better. Prices couldn't be any worse than now. Judge Tripp spoke on the Judas-like attempt of certain people to betray the Demo cratic party, and explained how the meeting was worked up. He thought the results of the meeting would, how ever, show up the scheme to the whole country and to Congressman Baldwin. John A. Keyes, a low-tariff Republican, spoke next, and made a fine speech. He gave the history of the Minnesota Iron company, showing what it had been given, but the legislature, for the asking, released its prop erty from taxation except the Insignificant sum of one cent per ton on its output, which action was unconsti tutional. He believed in retracing the steps taken in giving special privileges or our government wou'd finally meet disaster. Mr. Bede wanted to know it "Ask and ye shall receive" was the V \ \ \ Li L J / / S o:Hy part of the. .Bible incorporated In the Republican party's platform. Chair man Baldwin was enthusiastically thanked for his services, and the regu lar meeting adjourned. Over across the street at the Temple theater a com parative handful of protectionists as sembled, and speeches were made, all by Republicans except one, and that by H. C. Truelsen. The Republican ma chine resolutions were again declared adopted. THE DEMOCRATIC RESOLUTIONS Whereas, the Democratic party, rep resented in its national convention held in Chicago in ;June, 1802, formulated and declared the sentiment and policy of the party upon the subject of the tariff upon imports, and declared itself unalterably committed to the doctrine that all duties upon importations should be "laid and levied for the purpose of revenue only," aud Whereas, the present representative of the Sixth congressional district of the state of Minnesota accepted the nomi nation of the Democracy of said district for the office held by him upon the declaration of principles of the party made at the Chicago convention, and professed during the campaign which terminated in his election a devotion to the policy of the parly as annunciated in Us platform, and Whereas, The Wilson bill, so-called, embodies the declared policy of the Democratic party; therefore be it Resolved, That that the representa tive in congress for the Sixth district of the state of Minnesota is in honor and duty bound to aid by his vote and influ ence the adoption of the Wilson bill in its entirety and as presented by the ways and means committee of the house of representatives. Resolved, That it is the duty of said representative to act in accordance with and iv conformity to the policy of the party to whose suffrage he "owes his present position, as such policy has been formulated by tin; assembled" wis dom of the Democratic party of the whole country, without regard to mere local interests or influences. Resolved, That the voters of the Sixth congressional district, having supported and elected Maj. Baldwin to the office he now holds upon the platform of the national Democratic party, and he hav ing in good faith ACCEPTED THE NOMINATION upon that platform, the Democrats and voters of said district have not now any right to request him to abandon that platform, nor to so stultify himself as to favor a policy contrary to the de clared policy of the Democratic party, as signified in the Wilson bill. Resolved. That it is the sense of this meeting that the true interests of the whole country demand that the Wilson bill should be, without unnecessary delay, passed and adopted by the con gress of the United States, and that it is probably the duty of all Democrats to give a loyal support to the party in the present emergency, and that mutiny against the party, such as is clearly im plied in the attempt to control the action of our representative in congress, and to induce him to abandon his de clared views upon the subject of the tariff, would ba destructive of the or ganization of the Democratic parly. Resolved, That this meeting does most cordially indorse tin; effort of the Democratic administration in its honest endeavor to reduce the tariff taxes. Resolved, That wo recommend that there be no changes in the free list, as proposed by the Wilson bill, unless it be to add other articles to said tree list. Resolved, That the natural advantages of St. Louis county, and the energy of her inhabitants, is sufficient for her to win and maintain her superiority with out piolection on iron ore.

SAINT PAUL MINN., FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 29, 1893. A STRONG KICK AT OAKES. NOR THERN PACIFIC RAIL WA Y COMPANY WANT HIM REMOVED. """"" MISMANAGEMENT IS ALLEGED. Collusion to Work the Various Lines to the Private Beneiit or the Receivers Set Up as the " • Main Cause and That the Road Cannot Be Reorganized Under Such Management. Chicago, Dec. 28.— The Northern Pa cific Railroad company, by Silas W. Pettit, of Philadelphia, its general coun sel, filed today in the circuit court of the United States at Miwaukee. before Judge James G. Jenkins, its petition for the removal of Thomas F. Oakes, Henry C. Payne and Henry C. Rouse, its pres ent receivers, and the appointment ot other receivers in their places. The petition sets out that Mr. Oakes, as president of the company, appointed R. G. Rolston, the president of the Farmers' Loan and Trust company, of New York, which is trustee of most of the main and branch line mortgages of the Northern Pacific Railroad com- pany, chairman of the finance com- mittee of the Norther if Pacific di rectory. The petition then states that when the Oakes - Rolston board took charge of the Northern Pa cific it was in good financial condition and in high credit; that it had $2,000,000 in cash in its treasury, and that its sur plus earnings for the first half of the fiscal year commencing June, 1889, amounted to about $1,500,000; that in addition to the division mortgages (amounting together to about $75,000,000), which were all the fixed charges of the main line at thaUime. the Northern Pa cific Railroad company was then also liable as guarantor of the bonds of twenty-one branch lines, amounting in the aggregate to about $26,000,000, and that for the purpose, among other things, of taking up these main and branch line bonds, and of building such other branches as might be necessary for the development of the business of the company, the consolidated mortgage was authorized by the stockholders to secure $160,(.00,000 of bonds intended and believed to be sufficient TO PAY OFF ALL the existing main and branch line bonds and provide for all the future purposes of the road for many years to come, and so that the said Oakes-Rolston board started off with a paying property, a large sum in cash on hand, and with the consolidated mortgage bonds to draw upon, with which to meet all expenses which should be" properly chargeable to the capital account, and of whicli the stockholders subscribed for and took $13,000,000, and so that the said board "should, and. in fact, did, have ample capital with which to conduct and prop erly develop the business of the com pany." The petition then goes on to say that the Oakes-Rolston board man aged to Increase the interest charges of the Northern Pacific company for branch lines from $26.000,0J0 to up wards of $86,000,000, all in one year, and for the acquisition of properties no one of which (except a small line costing less than $1,000,000) ever has paid the cost of operation and fixed charges, and m my of which do not even pay the cost of operation, and the petition further charges that in several instances, and those the most disastrous to the com pany, the officers and board of directors were themselves interested in selling the properties at an exorbitant profit to themselves. The story; of the collapse, of the Northern Pacific is then set out in great detail, naming particularly each of the railroads which were acquired by the Northern Pacific company, and which, the bill declares, completed its ruin within one year ot the Oakes- Rolstou board getting into power. The petition avers that in' the con struction of the United Railroads of Washington the members of the board derived a profit of $1,750,000, while the operation of that railroad cost the Northern Pacific Railroad company, In the year ending June 30, 1893, $155,600. The petition avers that the Rocky Fork & Cooke City railroad was owned by a syndicate of which Villard was president, and in which many of the members of the board of directors of the Northern Pacific Railroad company were participants, who divided among themselves $4,000,000 of trust certifi cates, $2,000,000 of which represented the Rocky Fork Coal company, which owned certain coal lands which had cost about $20,000, and the other $2,000,000 of trust certificates represented the own ership of the Rocky Fork & Cooke City railway, which cost not over $800,000. That the directors of the Northern Pa cific Railroad company caused . the Northern Pacific to buy from themselves as owners of the Rocky Fork & Cooke City railway for $1,400,000 Iv consoli dated bonds, and then made a contract between themselves as representing the Northern Pacific Railroad company and themselves as representing the coal company, whereby the railroad com pany agreed to buy 500 tons of coal per day at the price of $2.50 per ton, de livered at the mines; and that to better disguise the transaction, an agreement also provided that the profits made on the coal should be di vided one-half to the coal company.one sixth to the Northern Pacific company for itself, and the remaining two-sixths to the Northern Pacific company to be applied to the purchase of trust certifi cates at par, so that in addition to the profit made on the sale of the railroad, which has never * paid the expenses of its operation, and in addition to one half of the profits arising out of the coal contract, the syndicate will eventually get §2,000,000 from the Northern Pacific company for the purchase of the trust certificates representing the coal mine, and which cost it not to exceed $200,000. The Northern Pacific & Manitoba railroad, the petition avers, was organ ized by a syndicate composed of mem bers of the board of directors of the Northern Pacific company, which they purchased at a cost of not exceeding §12,0Q0 a mile, and that this road they then, as directors of the Northern Pacific Rail road company, caused that company to buy for bonds at the rate ot -520,000 a mile; and in addition the Northern Pa cific Railroad company assumed the in terest on §750,000 of terminal bonds se cured upon the terminal property of the company at Winnipeg, and which was at least 25 per cent in excess of the cost or value or that property. The 'petition shows that this proper.^"- has never paid the mere cost qJ operation, and that the interest charges . which the Northern raclfic has had to pay. amounting to upwards of §300,000 a year, arising out of this transaction, have been a dead loss to it, and the petitioners charge that the whole scheme of acquiring this ■ I line of railroad "was without any busi ness necessity or reason whatever, ex cept only that thereby such members of the board of directors of the Northern Pacific Railroad company as were In terested therein could, as they, in fact, did, realize an 'S^mf 77 ENORMOUS TROFIT THEREFROM." lii addition to the above-mentioned branch lines which' were acquired by the issue of the consolidated mortgage bonds, and "which together about ex * hausted all of those bonds which could : be issued under the mortgage for such purpose, theO.ikes-Rolston board of di- 1 , rectors of the Northern Pacific Railroad company guaranteed the interests by indorsement on the bonds, or by lease of some $36,000,000 bonds of railroads as branches of its system, In no single in stance of which have been, or are, the earnings of the property nearly equiva lent to the interest so guaranteed. In respect to the Seattle. Lake Shore <fc Eastern Railroad company, the peti tion declares that tho only part of it whicli had any prospective value to . the ; Northern Pacific Railroad company; could have been readily-duplicated for a little over $2,00J,090, aud that the rest of its lines— which are disjointed and widely sepaiated— were of no value what ever, and do not now, and never did, pay the mere cost of operation, yet the petition avers that for these lines the Northern Pacific guaranteed the inter est of $5,075,000 ot bonds, and at the same time uurchased 36,600 shares out of a total of 45.000 shares of its capital stock, for which they paid 1,74*2,000 iv consolidated mortgage bonds. It is claimed the Northern Pacific lost 53,000, --000 in this deal. In respect to the Chicago & Northern Pacific railroad, the petition sets out at length aud in detail the complicated method by which this was acquired by' the Northern Pacific company. It is claimed that for the property of this, line the Northern Pacific paid at least $10,000,000 IN EXCESS OF THE COST or value of the properties conveyed, and that the said profit was received and di vided among many of the directors, of the Northern Pacific Railroad company. The petition then avers that' these- Chicago properties could not ba made to earn interest on the bonds issued, and that in the endeavor to improve them the Nortnern Pacific company, which controlled the Chicago & Nortnern Pa cific company, caused it to issue up wards of $7,000,000 more of bond-*, and also purchased the line of the Calumet Terminal Railroad company at an ex pense of $o,ojj,ojo of bonds, all of which are guaranteed by the Northern Pacific Railroad company, and are now out standing as collateral security for its debts. 7.";. It is also averred that In several of these transactions the Oregon & Trans continental company, of which Henry Villard was president and Colgate Hoyt vice president, and in which many of the dlrectois of the Northern Pacific Railroad company were interested, was interposed as a party to the contract so that it might make a profit or commis sion thereon, amounting in the case of the Chicago & Northern Pacific 'Rail road company to upwards of $.550,000. It is declared that in all these transactions Thomas F. Oakes. as vied president, and Roswell G. Rolston, as chairman of ttie finance committee, took au active part, in violation of their •••duty to the Northern Pacific Railroad company.and? that Rolstou, as chairman of the finance committee, would call on Himself as president of the trust company, trustee in most of the mortgages mentioned, and iv the consolidated mortgage, to certify the bonds, which then, as chair man of the finance committee, he . ■*■ PROCEEDED TO DISPOSE OF for the purchase of these properties, aud that this increased the obligations of the Northern Pacific Railroad com pany so that in oue year it was loaded down with the interest of *?00,0a0,000 of bonds issued or guaranteed by it for. worthless uropertles. For these reasons the court is asked to remove the receivers as incompetent and willfully extravagant men. The petition then avers that by col lusion betweeu Oakes, as president, and Rolston, as the president of the trust company, a bill was filed by Rolston's company, the Farmers' Loan and Trust company, of Now York, trustee of the mortgages of the Northern Pacific; the Calumet Terminal Railway company, and most of the branch ' line companies, for the appointment of a receiver; that upon the filing of the bill Thomas F. Oakes was recom mended to the court for appointment as receiver, for the purpose of continuing the control and management of the Oakes-Rolston party, and which bill was filed without, the knowledge ot many of the directors of the Northern Pacific Railroad company, who were kept in ignorance of the fact that any application for a receiver Had been pre pared or was necessary. The bill closes by declaring that the road cannot be reorganized unless its control is put in die hands of compe tent people, and the people now in con trol, it declares, are not of that kind. Mr. Oakes Declines to Talk. Mr. Oakes is in the city, but declined to express an opinion or say anything for publication relative to the proceed ings. PROP. THORNHILL. WEDS.

AND A PRETTY FIGHT IS ON. The Governor Says It Is In the Interest of Harmony and Good Government, but the Lady Pol itician bays That It Was for an Entirely Different Reason, and There's Music in the Air. ■ .Topeka, Kan., Dec. 28.— The Populist camp was this afternoon thrown Into the wildest excitement by the action of Gov. Lewelling in removing Mrs. Mary E. Lease from the state board of char ities. This was done after long confer ence with his associate state officers and other leaders of the People's party, and was no doubt in anticipation ofthe war which Mrs. Lease was preparing to declare against the state administration. To a reporter Gov. Lewelling said: "I don't want to say much about it, and 1 want you to be careful to quote me correctly. I have removed Mrs. Lease in the Interest of harmony and good government. There seems to be some lack of harmony in the charitable Institutions of this state and consider able trouble In the board, and I con cluded Mrs. Lease's removal was the remedy, and accordingly removed her. That's all 1 have to say about it this afternoon." •'Don't you think you have stirred up a row?" "Maybe I have, but I guess there will be no great trouble grow out of it." Mrs. Lease, who was up to 2 o'clock head of the state board of charities, was in the city today to confer with the Pop ulist leaders about the rocent election of George F. fa über to be steward of the deaf and dumb asylum at Olathe by the votes of M. A. Householder and W. S. Waite, the Republican members of the board. "Either he goes, or I go," Mrs. Lease said to a reporter, and she stamped her foot to emphasize that fact. This was before her removal was announced. "It is a question of principle with me. First, lam a Populist, and of the mid dle-of-the-road sort, and do not believe in appointing Democrats to office. Next, good Populists have been ignored^ and lastly, I am opposed to Tauber, because he was appointed to secure the beer drinking element of the state for the People's party next year. - I am not that kind of a politician. Ido not believe in compromising with wrong in any shape or form. It is certain Tauber will have to be retired or I shall quit the board." The removal of Mrs. Lease was a thought of todey. Yesterday there was no talk ot it iv the state house or in Pop ulist circles anywhere. It is not be lieved the removal ■ was • wholly cau?ed by the row in the board, for that has been of r long standing and was .open arid notorious. That somebody had to go has been known fcr three months, lor Mrs. Lease on the one side and Mr. Householder and Mr. Waite on the other could never Harmonize, but it was not intended to let It be Mrs. Lease un til this morning, when intelligence was brought to the governor that Mrs. Lease had not buried the hatchet, but was getting ready to make another assault through the newspapers . upon the ad ministration. She, in conversation with a well-known Populist, within the past forty-eight hours, stated that she was not satisfied with the terms of peace made for her with the governor. ; She said Gov. Lewelling and the entire state house crowd ought to turned down, and that she was loaded witn let ters and other documents that would make trouble. She said she proposed to go after the governor on account of a good many misdeeds, and especially on account of the appoiutmeut of 4 Artz and Todd. When this reached the governor's ears, it decided the question of removal in his mind, and instead of letting out Householder and Waite, he let out Mrs. Lease. The removal means the admin istration has accepted Mrs. Lease's chal lenge to battle, and the contest will be full of fire and interest. Mrs. Lease takes her removal like a trained politician. She said to a re porter: "Yes, 1 have been officially informed of my decapitation. I had had a hint that it was coming. But Gov. Lewelling ought to have told you the real reas oq. It was because 1 went to him yesterday afternoon aud made a demand upon him, not a request, mind you — a de maud that at the expiration of the term of Mr. Toe. a Republican member, next April, . J. R. Ken nedy, a Populist editor of Wilson county, be appointed. I know that with Mr. Kennedy on the board we could run the institutions in a business-like way and get rid of the political schemes to which the board now resorts. But the governor seems to like that way of admiuisteiing our state charities. It was not a month ago he came to us with a demand that we remove Carter from the s peri tendency, of the deaf and dumb, asylum. 1 said to him that be had no right to make such a demand; that we, the board, were responsible for our appointments/and the party could not afford to have such an institution as the deaf and dumb asylum mixed up iv small politics. But the majority of the board did the governor's bidding, and now they are trying to find a way to re instate Carter." AFTER THE GOVERNOR. Mrs. Lease Says the Governor Will Bo Turned Down. • Topeka, Kan., Dec. 28.— Mrs. Lease was asked by an Associated Press rep resentative tonight if her removal would cause a split iuthe party. She reiterated the. statement made in Topeka a month ago, that the present administration would be turned down. "1 have never denied the interview," said Mrs. Lease, veheniently,-*and everycharge preferred by. me will be substantiated at the proper time. The old crowd must go. 1 went into this fight for principle, and I can not and will not tolerate the cor ruption of the present administration, an administration more corrupt than • any Republican adniinlstratioyfthat ever -disgraced Kansas. The administration of Gov. Lewelline seems to make appoint ments to further his own political ends, regardless of consequences. When be finds au appointee he can't use he de poses him." 1 DISRUPT THE PARTY. Friends of Mrs. Lease Say It Will Canse Party Defeat. ?■- Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 28.— R. M.- Cheriault, one of the most prominent .Populists in Kansas, and attorney for Mrs. Lease, arrived here from Topeka tonight. He Is very bitter against Gov. Lewelling for his removal of Mrs. Lease. Speaking about the matter to an Asso ciated Press representative, Mr. Che naultsaid: "lam perfectly satisfied, after a consultation with Messrs. Gleed, Ware & Gleed, attorneys, whom I have employed to assist me in fighting Gov. Lewelling, that the governor cannot remove Mrs. Lease legally without cause, and In his letter to her notifying hei of her dismissal he gives no cause. We propose to fight the case to the bit ter end. The removal of Mrs. Lease will certainly disrupt the People's party In the state, and lead to shameful aud disgraceful defeat at the next fall elec tions. 1 certainly consider the governor the mest unwise and indiscreet governor Kansas has ever had. He has done more to bring reproach upon the state and stop capital from coming to it than, all the governors Kansas has had from the time of her admission to the Union. 1 will do my utmost to defeat him for renomination, supported by thousands of our people." Students Smoked Cigarettes. Olatiie, Kan., Dec. 28.— Supt. Carter received a telegram from Mrs. Lease this morning saying he had been rein stated. This will renew the war by the discharged employes, some of whom are still here awaiting the result, and new charges are In circulation In re gard to the condition of affairs. Many .of the students are seen down town every day smoking cigars and cigar ettes, and some of the larger ones were called before County Attorney Scott to testify as to where they got their liquor. Other reports as to insufficient manage ment are being brought up. Judge Dixon, the discharged steward, says he will put all charges hereafter in print, substantiated by affidavits. KIDNAPED THE BOY. A Chicago Mother Searching for Her Lost Son. Pittsburg, Dec. 28.— Mrs. Johanna Swansou, wife of a Chicago maltster, living at No. 176 North May street, that city, has been in Alleghany since Wednesday looking for her sixteen-year old son Willis, whom she claims was in duced to leave his home on June 16 last by John Worheimer, a fellow workman in a Chicago brush factory. According to Mrs. Swenson's story VVorheimer and Willie were intimate friends and spent much of their time together. On June 1 Worheimer lost his place, and the boy divided his weekly wages with him in stead of bringing the money home as had always been his custom. On Juue 16 Willie disappeared, and nothing more was heard of him until Christmas, when a letter from Worheimer dated Pittsburg to a friend in Chicago incidentally mentioned that the missing lad was on a farm at Ligon ier. near this city. Mrs. Swinson at once came here and instituted search. Wor heimer was arrested today at Wolf's brush factory, on Wood street, and" will probably be indicted for kidnaping by Mrs. Swinson.

Special to the Globe. Deadwood, S. D.. Dec. 28.— The Federation of Labor has declarod a boy cott against the Deadwood Daily Times. The action grew out of editorials on the subject of labor 'and wages. Committees began circulating this evening petitions throughout the Hills asking the friends of labor to withdraw their patronage from the paper. At the mining camps the boycott works all right, but the peo ple as a whole are loyal to the paper. The Times will publish tomorrow a red hot editorial, aud from now on will fight the union bitterly. It is not expected that the . boycott will cripple the paper. The conflict between labor and capital, which has long been pending, will, it is feared, be brought to a crisis by the action of the federation. A forerunner ot this conflict is now In progress at Anna Creek, where 1,500 men are on a strike and holding | their company's buildings against the company's wishes. They are being maintained and backed In their actions by the unions. The labor outlook nere is not particularly bright. Borchard Is Insane. Special to the Globe. St. Cloud.

WORSE THAN MELLO, Rio Afflicted With a -Mora Dreaded Enemy THAN THE CRAFTY ADMIRAL, Yellow Fever, in Its Worst Form, Attacks the People. SEVERAL PEOPLE ARE KILLEB In the Streets of Rio by the Insurgent Shots. NAVAL BATTLE EXPECTED SOON. Buenos Ayres, Dec. 28.— Very little news has reached here from Rio de Janeiro. It is announced that the un fortunate city which has for months been suffering from the ravages of war, is now a victim of tho ravages of the worst and most dreaded of diseases — yellow fever, and five deaths from this disease are already reported. The news that yellow fever has added its burden and horrors to the sufferings already endured by the people of Rio has caused widespread attention here, and much sympathy Is expressed for the plague and war-stricken inhabitants. It is added, however, that the government is taking every precaution possible under the circumstances to prevent a spread of the disease, but the work of the offi cials at Rio de Janeiro is greatly hamp ered by the condition to whicli the city has been reduced by the horrors ot war. It is added that yellow fever, which has broken out in Rio de Janeiro, is not the mild form of that fever, but is the worst form of black vomit. Following the news that the black vomit has broken out at Rio de Janeiro comes the additional information that the bombardment of the city and forts continues, and that the forces of both parties, the government and the insur gents, seem determined to bring matters to a termination in one way or the other. The fire of the rebel war ships upon the forts is said to have been un usually severe, and to have resulted in killing a number of the defenders of President Peixoto's fortifications. It is also said that several people have beeu killed in the streets of Rio" de Janeiro, and that tbe people of that city are so panic stricken that all the stores have been closed, and that business is practically at a standstill. The forts have been replying fiercely to the heavy fire of the ships, '. have so far suc ceeded in holding their own.' It is re ported that a battle' at sea between the rebel ships and the cruisers fitted out for President Peixoto at New York may soon be expected, and that upon this engagement will depend the fate of the rebellion. The Miantonomah's Destination. 3 Washington. Dec. 23.— Senator Her bert has ordered the monitor Mianto noinah from New York to Fort Monroe, there to await further orders. It is be lieved that unless some change should meanwhile occur in the Brazilian situa tion the vessel will be ordered to Rio. The making ready of the Miantonomah for sea was, without doubt, with the idea of sending her to Rio. But there is reason to doubt whether she wiil go, beyond Norfolk now, unless a future development in Rio should call for a still further increase of the force there. It was considered advisable to have her made ready for sea and get the men away from shore duty for a time, and she will probably practice some maneu vering in Hampton Roads and there await further orders. IN WATERY GRAVES. Bodies Lost in a Wreck May Never Be Recovered. Loui sviLLE, Dec. 28.— From present indications it would seem that the un found bodies that were lost in the Louis ville and Jefferson bridge disaster may remain in their watery graves. That of John Holden was the last found, and since then no traces of the remaining bodies have been found. The coroner will probably hold an inquest some time In January. He will wait until all the chances of finding any more of the twelve men who are supposed to be in the wreck are given up. A body was taken out of the river near Tell City, Ind., yesterday, and, as it was cut badly about the chest and shoulders, it ia thought to be the remaius of one of the victims of the bridge disaster here. The body was badly decomposed, and half been in the water a long time. Confirmed the Sale.
