Every man on it deserves every DtMnorratie vote in Ramsey county, and every man who gets every Democratic vote will ac elected. David L. Ccbtice is so well known in this county as a competent civil engineer that the people will not turn him down for an inexperienced man for county surveyor. Ail of the Democratic candidates for county commissioners are men fully equipped for the duties of caring for ti:e affairs of the county, and they should all be elected. Judge John B. Olivier is a fit man to seitie the estates of the people who die during the next two years in this county, and his well-knowu popularity wil! be again demonstrated today. In every land and cl'me Dr. Price's Baking Powder leads the list. It keeps everywhere. A hacked feature of the local fieldhas been the almost entire absence of bet ting on the result. Men have been loud enough iv their claims, but none cared to back their judgment with their money. Will somebody tell us which of these Will be happiest tomorrow oioruing: David B.

For his ten reasons why they should, they have one sufficient one why they won't: They don't have to If there is such a thing as local pride or loyalty to the city the voters of this cjty will make it unanimous today for Mr. Becker. Mr. Nelson expects tbe solid vote of Douglas county, be- NM l;e is a resident there. Mr. Oweu will draw heavily on tfie pride of Min neapolilaiis in having the governor a fellow citizen. Why shouldn't the voters of St. Paul give Mr. lacker a home indorsement, as well as the voters of Minneapolis aud Douglas their candi dates,? William Koch has been f ithful in small matters, as expert printer and in his daily avocation, and taking this as an index of his fitness for register of deeds, it will be but the command to "Co iid higher," when the votes are counted at the close of the day. RAMSEY COUNTY'S DUTY. The loyal Democracy of Democratic Ramsey county have a duty to perform today; it is to roll up a handsome plu rality for (Jen. George L. Becker for governor. By every consideration of party loy alty and loyalty to their city the GIOBK urge* the unterriried Democracy of this county to so to the polls today and show that they appreciate the honor con ferred on them by the Democracy of ihe state in this nomination, as well as the respect and admiration all entertain for Gen. Becker. This is no time for the Democrats of Ramsey county to waver. Gen. Becker has a right to claim every Democratic vote in this county, as hu does. lie did not seek the. nomi nation, but loyally responded to the unanimous call of his part)', and no true Democrat can afford to cast a vote for any other candidate. The Democrats of the state will do their full duty toward Gen. Becker and the slate ticket, and Ramsey county should take a pride in leading the pro cession. There are Democratic votes and to spare to elect (ten. Becker this year, and the Globe is sure that there is no loyal member of the party in Ramsey county who desires to be in part re sponsible for the defeat of Gen. Becker. There has never been a better oppor tunity to elect a Democrat to the high office of governor of this state than there is today, Alt the Democrats need to do is to .stand tusetlier and success i# certain. The bushwhackers who have assailed Gen. Becker and the Demo cratic party will be disappointed when the votes are counted. Gen. Becker has manfully done his duty toward his party, the city of St. Paul aad the state, and the Globe de mands for him the united vote of the Democratic party of Ramsey county and the state. Wiixtam A. Van Slyke is one of God;s honest poor men. He is not a member of any dry troods firm or any other firm in this city as represented by Republican stump orators who know better. He is now, as he has been fci a couple of generations, in tlie commis sion business on his own account. Had he given his attention to some pursuits as faithfully as he has to the city with out adequate compensation he would doubtless now not stand in need of an elective office that has a remuneration sufficient to give him support for its term of four years. SEND THKM ALLi IS. All the interests involved in today's action of the voters of tliis county are large ones. It is just ns important that good, competent men be chosen to ad minister our local business as it is that the risfht man be sent to congress, the right ones to the legislature or the right ones installed iv the capitol. It is just as essential that the voters consider the lower as the upper end of the ticket, and give to the names there as much individual judgment as they do tlie first-named. Every Democratic voter, when lie gets In ths booth today alone with his pencil and his conscience, should ask himself what good reason he has for not voting for each one of the candidates for county office. If there is one whom lie may not like for some or another mi son he should ask hiroseif whether he as a citizen and as a Democrat is there to make his ballot express his likes and dislikes for individuals. If auy man commended to him by the conveniion is notoriously unlit for the place, that i 3 a different matter; but if tit and reputa ble, consideration for the organization he is identified with should make him rise above all personal considerations and bow his feelings to the will of the majority of the party. Government by parties rests on this for its foundation. It is our deliberate judgment that no Democrat in this city can bring himself to say that any one of the persons named by the convention of his party is not a man of character, of good repute and fitted to perform the duties of the office to which he has been named. Any one of us might have preferred some one else to one or another of them, but that is not the question now. That was settled, and every Democrat should ac~ cept it as settled for him in the conven tion. This being the case, there exists no good reason why every man on the ticket should not have the vote of every Democrat in the couty, and, having this, why every one of them should not take his place in the city hall on Jan. 1 as a servant of the people. This, we feel sure, will be the result of today's ballot ing Axtox Miesex has a pleasant but firm expression of countenance, and one on which honesty is stamped. His election as sheriff will demonstrate that truth and honesty shall prevail. Constantly growing for forty years— The popularity of Dr. Price's Baking Powder. PROKECTILES VS. ARMOR. The North American Review for No vember presents a variety of interesting topics interestingly treated, opening with an article by Secretary Herbert, of the navy, in which the yet mooted ques tion of constructing heavily armored battle ships is discussed in the dim light turown upon the question by the battle off the Yalu river. Since the Merrimac and Monitor demonstrated the utility of armor all nations have been making rapid strides in the direction of armored war ships. There has been a constant duel on between the manufacturers of guns and the manufacturers of armor, somewhat akin to that between the burglars and safemakers. As each new projectile was invented and it demon strated that it could pjprce the thickest armor then made, the naval architects proceeded to increase the thickness of the armor guarding the ship. This has gone on until the line of bat tie ships is but little more than a float ing mass of iron, in which the purpose seemed to be to secure the greatest thickness of armor that could be made to float. For twenty years or more this development of naval architecture has been purely on theoretical lines. The Campordown illustrated 'the effective ness of the ram, and the Victoria, her unhappy victim, illustrated the quick ness with which these masses of iron can plunee to the bottom with their en tire crow, but during all this time none of the advanced type of war ships have met in actual conflict to demonstrate their methods or display their faults THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAF MORXEW*.

It was this lirst trial of massive armor pgttHit equally massive projectiles that | nw to that battle great interest, and : make the meager reports of its details so annoy in if. SeereUuy Herbert's article is accom panied by a plat« showing, proportion ally, the size of the vessels encaged and i giving details as to their class. dlsolace | iiient. armor, armament, and so forth, I while another '.able gives the names of the vessels, their classes, horse rower, displacement, number of batteries, total weight of tire, armor, rate of speed, where made, aud other details of inter est to students of these topics. The article is devoted to collating what wai ter there may be bear!nt; on what he terms a matter of present interest-the question, when we add to our navy, shall we build buttle ships? and he ex tracts what he can from the Yalu bat tle to show the relative advantages or battle ships and of armored cruisers. No max who has regard for » faith ful enforcement of law and ability in looking after the points of law involv ing the finances of the county should vote against Pierce Butler today. His public life is absolutely free from criti cism, and even Republicans of the fair minded sort admit that he should be elected irrespective of party prefer ences. A novice has no claim to the office of treasurer of this meal county. For this place a man who knows something about its manifold duties and great re sponsibility should be chosen,today, and it is fit Inn; that John S. Grode should be triumphantly elected. Tiik Democratic legislative ticket has merits that demand the selection of the individuals over their opponents in each ease. These are offices in which Dem ocrats should be placed, and no personal preference justifies trading. HEBREWS MOB HEBREW TAXKKN'OFF UAKHS HIS SPKECit JUST THK SA3IE. The Aggressors Are Arrested Li ad Steals a Dollar—Munic ipal Court Grind. Oscßr Tankenoff, recently or the po lice force, addressed the American lie brew Democratic club at Fairfield and Robertson streets. Sunday night. Be fore Mr. Tankunoff entered tlie club rooms, he encountered some opposition on the part of the Republican Hebrew element on the Wait side. He was mat at the west end of the Robert street bridge by a regiment of half a dozen Hebrews and roundly "cursed" for his politics. One of the party made a pass at him, but Tankeuoff dexterously ducked and hurried away. The Repub lican crowd started after him and came up with him at the entrance of the club, wiiere others of their kindred and pol itics had gather to obstruct his passage. There were ladies among this latter a< gregation. Ths uieu shook their rists at him, and the women clawed at him aud called him a traitor, and accused him of being a saloonkeeper and standing in with the police. But Mr. Taukenotf passed safely into the building, made his speech and, under the escort or two officers, left the place safely. Mr. Tan kenoff was not Mttsfied with this, so yesterday he issued warrauts against Mrs. B. Seliymai), Charles Seligman, her husband, Mrs. B. Tastenoff, Mrs. Sandusky, H. Fine, T. Goldstein, H. Roseubaum and llenry Felterson.chaiK inK them with disorderly conduct. Charles Seligman and Mrs. Sandusky were absent. The case was continued until next Friday afternoon to afford Mr. Taukenoff time to procure a war^ rant for the arrest of Sam Leptiitz, who. Mr. Taukenotf insists, was the most ag srressive of the lot, and the most anxious to see him "licked." He Kept the Dollar. Gustave Kueschke, a newsboy with an idea that a bird in the hand is worth sevemi elsewhere, was entrusted with H Sunday morning to buy a paper for Mr. Stone, who wanted to read some hot campaign stories. Muster Kueschke ac cepted the dollar and hastened off to get the paper, but unlike the proverbial cat, he never came back. Wherefore Mr. Stone put the police on his track, and the thrifty Gustave was ultimately arrested. He was in the police court yesterday, but his case was continued until tomorrow. It looks as though he would find himself iv the reform school vi a few days. Window Sin anil era. Otto Donaldson and Edward Lapp, aged ten years, and Richard Lapp, aged nine years, were arrested yesterday for breaking a window belonging to Mrs. Esther Castleton. whose house is lo cated on Dayton's bluff. Richard, the niue-year-old, was discharged, but the other two boys will not be dismissed until their parents pay $15 apiece for the conduct of their children. The testimony showed that they were tnrow ing stones at another boy, who deftly dodged the missiles, oue of which smashed Mrs. Castleton's window. A spoiled cake is no better than a (spoiled child. Nothing is spoiled with Dr. Price's Baking Powder. Not Good Politics. On the day following the Republican county convention the Pioneer Press, in discussing the candidacy of Waiter L. (Jhapin for county attorney, said: If he could be elected county attorney it would be difficult to find a better man for it outside of the present incumbent. The unfortunate thing about it is that, he i 9 opposed to Pierce Butler, who. it is but just to say, has proved the most brilliant and successful prosecutiug of ficer who has ever occupied that posi tion. We are free to say that Mr. Cha pin deserves a better fat's itaan is appar ently reserved for him in a hopeless contest with his able and popular com petitor on the Democratic ticket: and that it was not good politics to nominate him under the circumstances. We are inclined to think that is his own opin ion. Left All His Millions Behind. St. Hei.exa, Cal., Nov. s.—Tiburcio Parrott, one of the richest men in Cali fornia, died here today after a short ill ness.

Niit Goodwin should feel gratified at his reception last evening at the Metro politan opera house, where a very large and enthusiastic audience- applauded the actor, company and play, and sum* named the star before the curtain sev eral limes. Mr. Goodwin's legions of St. Paul admirers have for many sea sons enjoyed his work .in the lighter realms of the drama, but probably nev er before have they left the theater at the close of his performances in the same frauiH of mind as last evening, when the hnal curtnin fell on Augustus Thomas' admirable play "In Mizauura." it is a bold step for an artist who has been long identified with comic, assump tions of nearly every irradu to attempt a rola which calls for little of his old time methods in delineating character. In this case it appears as if the step was a judicious one, tor it illustrates Mr. Goodwill's wonderful versatility, aud Allows him possessed of qualities that hi him for a higher clhss of work than he has ever shown, aud, to judge from last evening's indorsement, work that should prove fully as enjoyable. Those who remember Mr. Goodwin's exuberance of manner, extravagant facial expressions and uiuiblenes* of limb will find but little of the kind in Jim Radburu, sheriff of Pike county, Missouri. On the contrary, .Jim is mod eration and repose personified; aud, al though kite star part does dominate the scenes, the other characters are ho strongly drawn that interest is centered in their actions as well as in the chief characterization. Mr. Thomas lias written what he calls a drama of character; and the people, with the sole exception of the express robber, aru humble denizens of Bowline Green. The noble qualities, prejudices and peculiarities of a certain type of Westerners are capitally drawn, and the scenes are strikingly true to the locale of the plot. The homely lan guage is well preserved, the situations are skillfully conceived and - followed in natuial sequence, and the melo dramatic moments are not unduly em- phasizeti. The play deals with the Jim Cum minus express robbery of two years ago, and the action of the piece centers upon the escape and death of the robber while resisting arrest. Mr. Goodwin's role is that of an unlettered rough and brave Missouri sheriff, Jim Radburn. Jim is in love with the daughter of the village blacksn.ith of Bowling Green. The daughter has been to college, and her education has lifted her above her people, au>l so she falls in love with a handsome.educated fellow, Robert Trav ers, who In reality is a train robber and fugitive from justice. Jim has paid for Kate Vernoti's education, and tiii-. se-ivice, intended for her betterment, is the very thing that makes Kate dissatis fied with the thought of him as a lover. Jim is sure of going to the legislature, but his love for Kate and his desire to please her causes him to withdraw in favor of the blacksmith, her father. Kate consents to go away with Travers the evening of the day on which the play begins. Radburn, the gentleness and* poetic quality of whose nature is shown in his tender solicitude for a dog, tolls Kate of nis love for her, and is in formed by her that she cares for another. This is the state of affairs when Sam Fowler.the messenger who was arrested for supposed complicity in the express robbery, returns home honorably ac quitted of the charge. He recognizes Travers as the robber, there is a tight and Travers seeks the home of Kate as a place of refuge. Radburn follows him. and for Kate's sake, aids in the rascal's escape by giving up his horse to Travers; but Travers does not gut further than the adjoining tow.i, where he is suspected of being a horse thief. KadOurn's horse being recognized, ami is shot trying to escape, but before dy mg declares that Jim gave him the horse. This fact established, the sheriff is accused of conniving at the escape of the criminal, and affairs are threaten ing, when Kate, who has learned much, from her father, comes to the rescue with her story of lladbnrn's self-denial, ana the tide of popular sentiment rolls more strongly than ever in favor of Kadburn. and we perceive that by and by it will be well with him and Kate. There are two minor love stories, the comedy one between Lisbeth, Kate's youngest sister, and Dave, Jo's helper at the forge, and the juvenile, romantic one between Sam Fowler and Emily Kadburn, Jim's sister. -.- In Mr. Goodwin's work earnestness plays the important feature. He is thoroughly sincere.does not exaggerate, and is honest ana convincing. In his love scenes he was manly and modest, and in the exciting episodes he did not resort to clap trap and rant for produc ing his effects. . The piece is admirably cast. Miss Lilla Vane was very satisfactory as the heroine. Miss Estelle Mortimer de serves praise for her impersonation of the watchful, hard-working mother. Miss Minnie;i)uuree, as the slouchy un tutored Lisbeth Vernon, made a hit in the character, which mainly depended for success on make-up and action. Clarence Holt was capital as the Black smith Veruon. The quartette of negroes sang some plantation melo dies which called forth encores. The stag« settings are very appropri ate, the second and last act being espe cially good. "In Mizzoura" will be re peated tonight. Wednesday and Thurs day night Mr. Goodwin will present his enormous success of two seasons ago, entitled "A Gilded Fool." It will be remembered that this play filled the opera house at every performance dur ing Its engagement here. Friday and Saturday nights Mr. Goodwin will ap pear in "David Garrick" and "Leud Me Five Shillings." Arrangements have been perfected with the .North American Telegraph company to place a special wire with an operator on the stage, where elec tion returns will be received direct and read to the audience at frequent inter vals during the performance. * * • Hoyt's "A Bunch of Keys" pleased another lame audience at the Grand last night despite the fact that it was thd night before election. Tonight the election returns will be read from the stage. A unique manner of introducing this feature is furnished by the second and third . acts of the comedy, being a modern hotel scene, and the operator and his instrument will.be in full view of the audience. The returns from all over the country will be received. .Next week A. T. Pearson's famous spectacle. "Land of the Midnieht Sun," with a vast amount of scenery ana an excellent company, will be the bill. . - . - The song, "I Do Love You," which is one of the features in the performance: of "A Bunch ot Keys," is artistically rendered by Miss Sadie Cushuiau — not Miss Desmond as mentioned in Mon day's Globe. •'After the Ball—au ice. and cake raised with Dr. Price's Baking Powder.

THE ORIGIN A MYSTERY. li* Every Case Flames Break Out in Cotton in the Hold. IS IT WORK OF STRIKERS? Op the Result of Atmospheric Conditions Causing- Spon taneous Combustion? Sayannau, Ga., Nov. s.—At 6:80 o'clock this evening tire was discovered in the hi'iu of the cotton steamerSkldby at the Ctutral Compress wharf. The tire was iv hold Nn. 3, in which there was about 2,500 bales of cotton. The Skidoy hud about. 10.000 bales aboard. She had about eonuluiled loading, and would have cleared tomor row. The tiro had trained considerable headway when discovered, aud at this writing is still burning. At 6:15 it was discovered that there was lire in the cotton in the hold of the s.earner Baltimore City at the Gordon press wharf, about a mile away from the scene of the tire «»n Mm SKidby. Alongside of the Bwltini'jre City lay the steamer Castle G«srth aud a few minutes after the discovery of the former's cotton being afke, tire was discovered in the foreueak of the Castle Garth, in which compart ment there was about 100 bales of cot ton and the seamen's clothes. The tin* on the Baltimore City was but small, and it was soon put out. On the Castle Garth it is more obstinate. About an hour after the discovery of the lira on the Baltimore City an alarm of tire was given from the steamer Stag, also loading at Gordon's wharf along with the Baltimore City aud the Castle Garth. This fire proved to be the most oust ma te of the three at the Gordou wharf, aud it la Still Burning. The Stag had on a large proportion of her cargo. Some 400 bales have beeu taken from her hold and tne holds of the Baltimore City and Castle Garth and put on lighters. About the same tune that the Stag was reported ah're at Gordon's wharf, tiro broke out in the hold of the steamer Dolgartn at the Central Press wharf near the fckidby, where the first lire occurred, aud in a few minutes the steamer Pe tunia, also at the Central Press wharf, was reported with tire in her cotton. The ships afire at this wharf were not over three hundred yards apart. Thsee other ships atire were a mile away. The firs on tiie Petunia. The fire on the Petunia was easily ex tinguished. All of tiie fires are out now except the ones on the Stag ana tha SKidby. Loss, so fur as can b« estimated, is about $50,000. The ships anil the cargoes are covered by insurance. As to me origin of the tires there is no satisfactory explana tion, in the case of the Stag, a phos phorescent glow was seen in her hold a few minutes before the tire broke out, anil it is surmised that tiie Slag's fire originated in this glow. There has recently Oeen trouble among the "longshore men" in this city, but there is none now. Last soring the longshoremen went out on v strike, but recently a great many of the strikers have returned to work at the rates at wincU the union men were working. 12:05 a. in.—Fire has just broken out in the steamship Armenia at the Central railroad wharf, making seven vessels. The tiro on the Armensa was slight and was soon extinguished. All the tiies are now extinguished, except that of the Skidby, which is under complete control. No estimate of loss is yet ob tainable. WORK OF ANAUCHISTS. London Police Have Nothing but Theories Regarding Sunday's Explosion. London, Nov. —Up to noon today the police have no definite theory as to the origin of the explosion at the resi dence of Hon. Reginald Brett, with the exception of suspecting the man from the Savoy hotel. But the authorities are busy running down theories which may any one of them connect the suspected man with the outrage. The Daily News says a long an archistic uiadifesto was issued in Lon don a few days ago. It was printed on colored paner, and was couched in vio lent but faulty English. It was headed: "Death to Judges; Death to Jurors," aud said, among other things: "Comrades, revenge is a duty. You shall see us at work. Death to judges, jurors, policemen in uniform' and ama teur policemen." Wary of Feeding the Invades.
