"No rogue e'er felt the halter draw
with good opinion of the law," and no
rogue entrapped ever had good words
for his rap per. No man balsed in a
scheme to gel the better of his fellow
but held his fellow in utter contempt,
and no better measure of his sense of
chagrin can be had than are the terns
iv which he refers to the one who
balked his schemes. P
These general remarks, whose ac
curacy all human experience confirms,
give point to the comments of the
Pioneer Press, the mouthpiece and
"friend, philosopher and guide" of Gov.
Nelson and the Great Northern, on the
action of Auditor Biermann in forcing
the light for the state institutions to a
triumphant finish and the discomfiture
of the illustrious trio above named.
They furnish the exact measure of their
chagrin and wrath, be when we- read
in the organ of the governor and the
Great Nortnern that "this man (Auditor
Biermann) who had struck hands right
and left with the private greed of lum
ber firms in robbing the state of its pine
lauds," we can see thai the wrath is so
great that the irate editor advocate of
the governor "and others' failed to see
that he was mixing his metaphors
badly. Striking hands with firms is bad
enough, but striking hands with Breed
is one of those things that can't be done.
But that is another story. -
Not content with this explosion ot
wrathful discomfiture, the mouthpiece
speaks of "the pine lumber steals to
whicii Mr. Biermann lent his official |
connivance." Now, if Auditor Bier- j
maun simply did his duty, as the attor
ney general says he did. and as the gov
ernor reluctantly and dilatorily ad
mitted, why all this wrath, and why
should a responsible paper run* itself
squarely into a libel suit with such seri
ous accusations of criminal conduct?
What does all this fiery language
mean? Why does the Pioneer Press
accuse the state auditor of being a
thief, for that is the plain English of its
words? No one will believe it; the
editor himself doesn't believe it, though
he will have to substantiate it in court,
or stand the consequences. It is simply
this that the intensity of- expression
equals the intensity of its aud "the
others'" chagrin at the results of the
auditor's action. It foresees the repu
diation of the governor by. the voters,
and it witnesses the transfer of 55,000,
--000 of laud values from its patron, the
Great Northern, to the ; state institu
tions with a dismay which finds its ex
pression in virulent abuse and a crim
inal libel on the character of an honest,
conscientious and faithful officer.
It will be a very pleasant surprise to
the Democrats of Minnesota that our
Washington dispatches give in the an
nouncement that the president has ap
pointed ex-Marshal William M. Camp
bell to the vacancy caused by the resig
nation of United States Marshal Bede.
lt was thought that the acceptance of
Mr. Bede's resignation might be recon
sidered, or, at least, that no appoint
ment would be made until the campaign
was over.
But the president evidently regarded
the resignation of Mr. Beae as final,
and, possibly to avoid the importunities
which his ample experience teaches him
are sure to' follow rapidly in the wake
of a vacancy, decided to make this ap
pointment out of hand by naming a
man with whom he was acquainted, for
whom he has a high regard; and whose
previous record in the office was . his
highest and best recommendation.
We but express the opinion of nine
tenths of the Democrats of the state In
saying that the appointment could not
have been more worthily bestowed, nor
one made that would have given the
satisfaction to his party that this one
does, It admirably supplements the
two preceding selections of the presi
dent for the larger federal offices in this

"Committee or One Hundred" Not
His Committee.
To the Editor of the Globe.
Referring to your editorial ol yester
day, in which you express the hope that
the mailing of a quantity of mimeo
graph circulars, bearing the stamp of
the "committee of one hundred." se- ;
verely reflecting on Judge Willis, was
without my connivance or assent, 1 have
to say that it certainly was. 1 never
heard of such a committee before. I
never saw such a circular, nor was 1
aware of its existence until advised by
the Globe. If the document you men
lion was put forth, it was without my
knowledge or consent or approval.
But permit me to say that, in so far
as 1 have been able to learn within the
past twelve hours, no paper friendly to
me has received such a circular. The
"committee seems to have exhausted
its supply among newspaper men who
advocate the election of my opponent.
lt promptly sent a copy to the editor of
the Progressive .*ge, a Populist paper,
devotedly attach id to Judge Willis.
Copies were also forwarded in great
haste to other Populist papers.and tome
to Democratic papers of unquestioned
loyalty to the subject of the attack.
These circumstances cast a suspicion
upon the good faith of this very zealous
"committee," and cause me to doubt the
sincerity of its screed.
As you say iv your editorial, I owe it
to myself to publicly disavow the circu
lar, and 1 do so unequivocally, and I
thank the Globe for giving me the op
portunity. L. W. Collins."

,f - • Speeches.
/ .— .;
The parlor conference held by the
associated .charities at the residence, tit
E. W. Peet, on Summit avenue, last
night was oue .of the most successful
and Interesting meetings that the or
ganization has ever held. Rev. H. 11.
Hart presided, and introduced the sub;
ject for the evening, namely, "Tftu
Street Boy Problem. In the course of
his few remarks, Mr. Hart said that in
all probability the next conference
would discuss the question of "The
Unemployed, and What to Do for
Them," which a month hence will be
particularly timely. Rev. John Conley
opened the programme with a very in
teresting paper, in which he discussed
'The Relations of ■ the Church to the
Street Boy." Mr. Conley said iv part:
Key. Conley Speaks. *'
"It is a serious question with many
whether we ought to have any street
hoys. Whether the advantages derived
by the work of these boys on the streets
are not much more than overbalanced
by the harm that results, lt is possible
that my address tonight ought to be an
appeal to the churches to do all in their
power not to save these boys in the
streets, where the odds are so fearfully
against them, but to save them from the
streets. This meeting tonight recog
nizes the fact that the street boys are
here, and for the present are likely to
remain. It also recognizes the very
patent fact that we are not doing for
these boys as much as ought to be done.
There are really two classes of street
boys those who work and those who do
not. The former is made up almost
entirely of the newsboys and the boot
blacks. The other of those who have
no propet home restraint and are almost
constantly on the streets, mingling with
the other boys, and doing much to give
a bad character to the whole. It is
stated that 00 per cent of the criminals
in the stale penitentiaries are under
thirty years of age. Mario estimates
that 41 per cent are the children of
drunken parents. And every one knows
that the large majority of such are
graduates from the streets.
The churches are doing a magnificent
work for the boys, book at the Sunday
schools, the missions, the junior so
cieties, the loyal legions, industrial
schools, boys' brigades, guilds, clubs
ana the like under the direct care of the
churches. The street boy problem would
be a thousand fold more serious were it
not for this work of the churches."
J. Gilpin 8"i It; Fallowed
with "Au appeal to the community"
for the street boy. Mr. Pyle said:
"One of the lessons that it takes a
community much longer to learn thqiL
auy other is that prevention is much
belter and a great deal cheaper than
cure, but just as soon as people appre
ciate this fact a reform may be con
sidered well under way. The question
of the punishment of crime has always
been subordinated to that of prevention
of crime, and in the establishment of
reformatory methods the more impor
tant question of prevention has been
overlooked. However, it is only lately
that we have filtered our own water, in
stead of calling iv a doctor to treat our
typhoid fever, and it is ouly lately that
we have applied the filtering process to
our streets. ,- s v., .- . }'j
-.'.•The work of the past in this city has
been largely -done by individuals.' 'If
has been as the desperate effort of on*
man to snatch and save a boy here and
there. The community has taken little
cognizance of this work, but its atten
tion must be arrested, for it is not our
homes that are in danger, but it is the
future of our slate. The work for the '
future must receive the financial as well
as the moral . support of the whole com
munity if anything is to be accom
plished. What is wanted is an agency,
a home for the boy."
Judge Kerr Went Into tbe Question
at some length, but from the standpoint
of the criminal, which during his ex
perience he has had au excellent oppor
tunity of being familiar with. . He. 100,
emphasized the necessity of prevention
rather than cure, and spoke very highly
of the three state institutions whose 7
character and ob ects are in this direc
tion. He suggested some changes in
the mode of conducting these institu
tions, which were practically embodied
in the proposed legislation.
D. L. Wellington, whose experience'
in this work has been a most varied oue,
went into the question of youth-saving
work very elaborately. Miss Cramsee,
who was associated with Miss Johnstone
in her work with the newsies, talked
interestingly of the religious work done;
among the boys, and Rev. David Mor
gan, of the Bethel, read a paper, in
which be made a number of very
practical suggestions. . .
Miss Grace Johnstone's paper,' read
by Mr. Peet, contained a very compre
hensive view of the work of the News
boys' club, au organization which is
temporarily suspended, during the time
that has elapsed since its organization
iv 1885.
Making People Sell-Reliant and
The work of the salvage bureau, under
the management of the parish house,
met a need so general and au indorse
ment so hearty from those interested in
scientific charity work that ii has been
determined by the parish settlement to
continue the work this year. Through
the salvage bureau the cast-off gar
ments aud furniture of the city are uot
only gathered and placed into homes
where it will do good without pauper!
izing, but a positive lesson iv self-re
liance aud independence is taught . that
sends each - iudividual away - with in
creased self-respect, and so better able
in spirit to provide for himself, and
therefore a 'better citizen..': This bis*
accomplished by placing a nominal,'
price upon the goods, which may be"'
paid in money or in work. The people
are thus treated as purchasers, and not
as paupers; and they feel this, even
though the price paid is small in com
parison to the value of their purchase.
Over 600 families, or about 3,000 indi-^
victuals, were helped in this way last
year. Those who intrusted their good J
to the bureau last year can feel that*
they have had a part in establishing a
very important agency tor the dimin
ishing of pauperism in our city; and
they, wiih all others who believe in the
principle of "help to self-help," are
asked to again co-operate this year.
The methods employed this year "will.

Meeting of the Superintendents ol
All Protestant Churches. '
When men agree to agree the result
,is surprising in harmony. Since, dur
ing these latter years, the various
"churches have united their efforts' for
furthering essential Christianity, a new
«eld v for success Is constantly pre
sented. ■ '-L' ', r L ;'--•% X.
In April. 1833. was held the first meet
ing of the St. Paul Sunday School Su
perintendents' union, and ; the i re
unions now occur each month from
September to May. The second
meeting for this fall at the Good
rich Avenue Presbyterian church last
evening showed a spirit of charming
fellowship and a marked increase in
attendance. It Is, by the way, to be
clearly understood that every pro
gramme is open to all teachers and
officers of Sunday schools. No "circuit
rider" ever enjoyed his special
chicken— the preacher's prerogative
more than did the superinten
dents their excellent supper cooked
from a Presbyterian standpoint.
Leaning back in their chairs the guests
discussetPthe Table Talk question, and
the trend of sentiment favored the dec
oration of Sunday schools,, if only
suitability is not overlooked.
The topic for the evening, "Class
Teaching." was treated by Mrs. M. S.
Jamar. Her remarkable success in her
own school- at tha People's church be
gan -to -be appreciated by her fellow
teachers upon finding themselves a
class under her hands. She taught
them as well how to teach as they
would desire to teach others. "The
subsequent., proceedings interested
them" very much, and several novel
suggestious were approved iv discus
KA number of new members were en
rolled, and the next meeting fixed for
the last Tuesday in November, at the
Central Presbyterian church. The ex
ecutive committee will announce the
'programme later. The third meeting
will doubtless be even more gratifying,
for such is the intention of President
F. A. Davis and Secretary S. L. Howell.
Their assurance is sufficient.
Rare Event Enjoyed by a Large

A large and critical audience filled
St. Mary's church, corner of Ninth and
'Locust streets, to hear the sacred con
cert given by the members of St. Mary's
church choir, uuder the direction of
Miss Elsie M. Shawe. These were as
sisted by Miss Katherine Richards Gor

companist. The first number was by
the choir, Hallelujah ("Mount of

A Sudden Relapse Makes His
Condition Extremely
His Pulse Weak and His
Breathing Extremely
Excited Throngs Surround
Bulletin Boards in Prin
cipal Russian Cities.
St. Petersburg. Oct. 30.— A bulle
tin from Livadia, timed 10 o'clock to
night, says thai during the day the
spitting of blood by tba czar continued,
He was sometimes seized with fits of
shivering. His temperature v. as 100
degrees Faharnheit and his pulse 90. :
The pulsations were weak. Respiration |
is difficult. He can take little nourish- \
ment and is becoming very weak. The
oedema has considerably increased.
London, Oct. 31.— The Times' St.
Petersburg correspondent says: When
the day's bulletins from ' Livadia were
published the people tell upon their
knees, and, with tears in their eyes,
prayed for the czar's recovery. To
night's bulletin relieved the anx
iety resulting, from several unfound
ed miners that his majesty was al
ready dead, lt is stated that inflamma
tion of the bowels has weakened the
action of the heart. A private telegram
from Yalta says the doctors iv attend
ance on his majesty held an unusually
long consultation tonight, hence the
issuing of the bulletin was later than
usual. The emueror is conscious aud
able to converse with the doc
tors and his relatives. The czarina
never leaves the sick room. His majesty
suffers heroically and makes no com
plaint. Yosterday he tried to attend to
the state papers and letters, but was
obliged to stop by violent fits of cough
ing, which lasted some hours. The
coughing was accompanied by intense
pain and
Then Blood Appeared
in the phlegm. » The doctors were un
decided at first as to whether the blood
was from the throat or lungs. The
cough continued all night. The czar
made no uttampt to return to his bed,
but remained in his arm chair.
Dr. Zaccharin is of the opinion
that a portion of Ihe clotted
blood got into the left lung and pro
duced inflammation, lt is hoped now
that the clot may get absorbed, other
wise his breathing will be seriously im
peded. Today his majesty has eaten
nothing. He looks pale and worn. He
has taken medicine, including digitalis.
When the doctors went to his
room at the usual time tonight
his majesty declined to receive them
until 0 o'clock. The. town wears a
mournful aspect. The late hour at which
the bulletin was received added to the
anxiety. Touching scenes are witnessed
in the streets, People uncover and
cross' themselves before the., places
where the bulletins lire posted, and
mauy of them shed tears. Copies of the
bulletins are distributed by news agen
cies, and when those agents appear on
the streets the bulletins are snatched
from their hands by the anxious people.
•''-'--: FACED IN 1:57 4-5.
Buffalo. Oct. 30.— This eveuing it is
claimed that John 8. Johnson brought
the bicycle record for the mile unpaced
down under two minutes. He made the
mile in 1:074 5. This ploughs a regu
lar furrow in the 2:07 1-5 which Sanger
set for the mark, and which Johnson
has beaten by nearly ten seconds.
The weather was very threatening
and the rain began to fail just as the
quad came out to pace Johnson for the
mile. Johnson rode a 70-inch geared
wheel. He rode in an opposite direc
tion to the oue he took when he is said
to have made a paced mile in 1:35 2-5.
The course is, 'in fact, very
nearly level and fast times
under like conditions have been made
during the past week in Doth direc
tions. The electric timing apparatus
worked to perfection, and what little
wind did blow came up in slight pull's
that were neither a help nor a hindrance
to John's riding. The time at the quarter
was not caught, but at the half the
wheel passed over the line in 3-5,
and third quarter was done in 1:26 3-5
Johnson finished iv splendid shape, and
rode on for a short distance before he
went back to the start for a try behind
the quad.
Johnson is the first man in the world
to beat the trotting, pacing aud running
horse record; the first man in the world
to do the mile with flying start and with
standing start iv less than two minutes.
No man in the world has ever
done a mile in lees than
1:50 until Johnson did the trick,
but he can also claim that lie
first did the mile under l:lo,aud now he
is the only man that has done the mile
unpaced in less than two minutes. Tom
Kck says there is one more record that
Johnson must bring below the two
minute mark, and that is the mile skat
ing, which he feels Johnsou will do dur
ing the coining winter.
