THK COST OF FOOD.
Aid. Coughlin, of Chicago, has intro
duced a resolution asking the city attor
ney to give an opinion as to whether
the council can regulate the price 01
bread, which is now said to be exorbi
lant. The bakers very properly retort
that the alderman direct his attention
to various otiier things whose price
might be reduced or regulated by ordi
nance. There i*. M they point out, no
distinction between regulating the price
of bread and mat of meat or Turkish
baths or theaters or newspapers, or,
they might add, of aldermamc votes.
The baking of bread is no such mo
nopoly, nor is it capable or such monopo
lization, as to call for governmental in
tt-rferenee and regulation. S'.ricily, a
bakery is merely a convenience to the
thrifty housewife, skilled in the duties
of htr profession, upon which she relies
in MNffIMMiM of a bad baking t>r sud
den social demands or a short supply of
pastry. To the frowzy housewife, lazy
aud indifferent and unskilled, ;hebal;er
may be a necessity. But tiie cure is not
in compelling him to furnish such peo
ple with Ike statt of life at such prices
as the board of local aldermen might
decree. On the contrary, it might be
that high prices of bread might operate
to compel the housewives who depend
upon the baker to learn the art of
bread making themselves.
But a comparison of prices of articles
of food hen aud abroad shows a condi
tion that is somewhat, striking. In
Chicago tiie loaf that weighs eighteen
ounces is sold for live cents. The wheat
from which this Chicago bread is made
is irrown in a comparatively near terri
tory, lv London, bread made from
flour converted fioin wheat grown
thousands of mites away is sold at sev
en CMits for a four-pound loaf. Leav
ing oat all question of cost of transpor
tation, the pound loaf in Chicago should
sell for not to exceed two cents. Chi
cago is at the outskirts of the great
food-producing regions of the North
west. There the prices of the staple
articles of food should be at their low
est.
But it is not in the matter of wheat
bread alone that the Englishman has an
advantage over his American brother,
in spite of the proximity of the latter to
the source of supply of food. The for
mer buys butter, free from any suspi
cion of imitation, at 20 cents a pound,
while the prices of his leg of mutton
range from 10 to 12 cents a pound, and
he buys his beef at prices ranging from
7 to 14 cents a pound, according to the
cut. fie can get a prime article of tea
for 32 cents a pound and sweeten it
with granulated suijar which costs him
but 3 cents a pound.
The association of Northwestern
millers, which is now undergoing a pro
cess of reconstruction, may account for
the fact thai Northwestern wheat can
be converted here into Hour and trans
ported 4.0U0 miles and made into bread
and sold to the English consumers at
about one-fourth the cost that the
American consumer pays for his loaf,
and it is probable that similar causes,
operating on other articles of food sup
ply, produce the same effect. Certain It
is, however, that something more than
natural conditions prevail when the
supply of these two staples, right at the
center of production, costs more than
it does when transported and sold in a
market several thousand miles away.
MUST AXSWERQUKSTIOSB.
The decision of Judge Cole in the
cases of the correspondents who refused
to reveal to the senate investigating
couunictee the source of their informa
tion as to the dealings of senators in
sugar stocks, will, if sustained by the
appellate court of the district, cover the
cases of the brokers and Ilavemoyer
and Searles, of the sugar tiust. The
reasoning of Judge Cole is so clear and
conclusive that there is no probability
of a reversal of his judgment on appeal.
While this decision is valuable in itself
as establishing a precedent for future
investigations, it will have, probably,
but little present effect, for this con
gress will have expired before a final
decision is leached.
The testimony that was elicited, how
ever, by the senate committee, and that
mainly from the senators themselves,
left no doubt that McPiiersou and
Camden and Smith had been using their
opportunities as members of the senate
to speculate in the stocks of the sugar
trust, whose value wa9»dependent upon
the action of the senate. Sufficient
was shown by their own admission to
utterly discredit these men, and the
recent elections in their own states
afford some measure of their condemn
nation.
NOT LOOKING FOR TRUTH.
The Republican papers that 'com
mented witn glee upon the statement
that American securities were firmer
in foreign markets after election omit
ted to add the further and sig
nih'aut fact that the advance was
nothing like that which occurred
after the Democratic victory two
years ago. There was reason for
this movement in both cases. In 1892
the solvency of American securities
was threatened by the silver bullion
overloading the gold reserve and threat
ening to bring all securities to a silver
basis. The Democratic victory, follow
ing the demand of the platform for the
repeal of the silver purchase act, could
not l:eip but check the downward
tendency and secure a sharp advance.
So, again in 1594, there occurred dis
turbing conditions threatening the fu
ture, ttie chief of which was the spread
of the free coinage idea in all parties
and the threatened rise of the Pop
ulists. With the disappearance of both
of these sources of apprehension, there
has been a reaction from the loss of
value occasioned by the panic and by
the continued apprehension as to the
result in this country. But fact and
truth are not what the average Republi
can editors are after.

THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 15, 1894
AT THE THEATERS.
The theatergoers of this city and
vicinity CM preoiire themselves for one
of the finest musical treats to I>h pre
sented here this season in the coining
engagement at the Metropolitan of
Pauline Hall and her brilliant company,
wliioh begins tonight.
Miss Hall will present for the first
time in this city th« nt»w operatic come
dy ••Dorcas," written especially for her
by that writer of comedy lines, Harry
I'an; ton, to whom the public is indebted
for the work of the opera of "Erminie,"
the comedy of "Niobe," etc ON its
musical side, "Dorcas" is said to be
largely supplied with charming and en
trancing music, at all times light and
tuneful. In the supporting company
are such sterling artists as Jeanette
Henry. Kate Davis, William Broderiek,
J. A. Libbey. Charles ti. Brauahaw,
Charles Meyer aud others.
Next Sunday night Eueene Tompklns'
speetacurar prcduciion. the revived
"Black Crook," and the same that was
seen at the Academy of Music, New
1 ork, for one year, will begin a week's
engagement at the Metropolitan. The
production in every respect, from the
dazzling costumes of the ballet to the
magnificent sceneiy, will be exactly as
it was shown at the Academy. The
company that Mr. Tompkin9 has
secured for the present season is most
conspicuous for talent. George Morton,
Sam Collins. Russell Hunting, E. S.
Goodwin, Barry Kissel, F. E. Gillette,
Letla Meredith, Gussie Cogau. Ella
Craven. Vlnriie lieushaw, Allie Gilbert
and others are in the cast. "The New
Bowery." "The Musical Dolls," "Tim
Cigarette" and the "Bold Soldier Boy"
and other specialties are given in the
illuminated terrace scene. In this
scene nearly a thousand electric lights
are used. A new idea in living pictures
is introduced, entitled "America's Roll
of Honor." The wonderful Atho* are
a strong additional feature..
The two principal comedy parts in
Bessie Bonehill's company,which opens
at the di.u'd Sunday nijc'ht, are in the
hinds of those capable comedians,
Messrs. Gallagher and West, who are
well known throughout the East as
farce comedy stars. Last season, while
starring in their own comedy, they
happened to see a performance of
"Playmates" in Pittsburg, and were so
impressed with the two parts of the
English nobleman that Mr. Bloom, man
ager for Miss Bonehill, received a letter
from them stating they would like him
to make them an offer for the present
season, which he did. aud they are vow
making a hit in '"Playmates."

Chicago Record.
Any liiuth tariff advocate who now
tells Mr. Wilson that the election of
Tuesday was a repudiation of tariff re
form must do one of two things. He
must make a tacit admission that the
American people are actuated "by
levity and fickleness of purpose," or he
must say that the Ameiicau people saw
in the practical workings of the new
tariff law the proof tltat tariff reform
did them injury.
Aud in the latter case he must tell
how the people came to t>e distressed all
these months by a law which had been
in operation but a few weeks betore the
polls opened.

GOOD COTTON CROP.
A Yield of About 9,500,000 Bales
Is Kstimated.
Savax.vah, Ga t , Nov. 14.—The esti
mates of the cotton crop made by prom
inent operators on the exchange here
vary from 8,750,000 to <).463,000 bales, the
majority putting it at about <J,250,000. It
is estimated generally that the crop of
Georgia will be 5 per cent increase on
last. year, or 1,200,000.
Wilmington, N. C, Nov. 14.—The
produce exchange here makes no offi
cial estimate of the cotton crop, but in
dividual estimates of the cotton men

is also estimated that about two-thirds
of the cotton in this territory has been
marketed. Receipts here to date are
121,2*! i) les. which is about 41,000 bales
ahead of last year.
Atlanta, "(Ja., Nov. 14.—The esti
mates of a number of the most promi
nent and best-posted parties in the cot
ton trade here cover a range of from
8.550,000 to 10,000,000 bales for this year's
crop.

Norwegian Ship and Pnrt of the
Crew Go Down- I.ijtlilSink
in a Collision.
Loxoox. Not. 14.—The storm con
tinues in the channel and throughout
England. A Norwegian ship has been
driven ashore near Dover. Her captain
and several of her crew were drowned
while trying to land in one of the ship's
boats. The rest of the crow were res
cued by means of the rocket apparatus
in the presence of thousands of excited
spectators. During the storm a cutter
was run down by a steamer, and eight
of the cutter's crew were drowned.
Th« rivers Avon and Severn have
overflowed, and in Devonshire many of
the inhabitant* have sought refuge on,
the housetops. A large number of cattle
and shwp iiavw been downed, and tratllu
in the valley has been suspended. The'
river Thames has risen four feet at
Richmond. All cross channel traffic has
been stooped to and from Folkestone.
At Bournemouth thousand*; of tons of
elift have been washed into the sea. At
Dover a great part of the pier was car»
ried away, and this afternoon the gale is
so severe at Portsmouth that all com
munication with the. warships at Spit
head has stopped.
An unknown two-masted vessel was
seen off Guernsey during the gale this
morning. She was apparently making
bad weather of it. Suddenly she dis
appeared, and it is supposed that she
foundered, taking all her crew down
with her. Further reports from the
South and East of England report
enormous loss of property. A number
of villages are inundated. The in
habitants of all the low lying parts of
these places removed in boats to places
of safety. The wrecking of seven small
vessels is reported from along the East
and South coast.
A boat belonging to the London
steamer Seadue has been washed ashore
at Worthing, a town of Sussex. A
corpse was in the boat, and from this it
is supposed that the steamer has foun
dered.
WHIIUWAYtI'KS AHEAD.
A Fact Which Complicates the
Situation in ftewluundland.
St. Johns, N. F., Nov. 14.—The po
litical situation hert is very grave. The
Whitewayite journals attempt to mini
mize the effect of the financial diffi
culties. Reports to business men, brok
ers and other from their correspondents
abroad show that tha trade of the
colony will be curtailed owing to the
feeling that it would be dangerous
to embark capital in dealings with
this country. The Whitewayites de
manded that the government resiirn
immediately, but it is not expected that
they will do so for several months, as
they have some very delicate financial
questions in process of settlement, not
ably securing the means lo pay public
debts, which are due at the end of De
cember. Any change iv officials at the
present moment would probably result
in financial disaster. The result of the
poll in St. George's district will not be
known before tomorrow afternoon.

New Yokk, Nov. 14.—Archbishop

Baltimore morning paper: "Arch

Republicans Kxpeeted.
New i'oKK, Nov. 14.—The Iron age
will say tomorrow: Those who enter*
tamed somewhat sanguine views as to
the immediate effect of the result of the
election upon business have been dis
appointed. Buyers have not jumped
into the market, and the volume of
business has shown practically no in
crease. The feeling is better, but there
are other considerations which out
weigh that iv shaping the near future
of the iron trade. The modest demand
for finished material is making the steel
works more indifferent buyers of Besse
mer pig, and that has created a weak
ening tendency. In the wire trade the
latest development is the rupture ot the
newly formed barb wire combination.
while war goes on vigorously in the
wire nail trade. This starting of two
of the leading Western tin-plate mills
on a non-union basis is a movement of
much significance. It means that an
effort is being made to drive the Amal
gamated association from one of its last
strongholds.
ITHACA, NX*»., IX ASHES.
Not a Store Leit, and Citizens
Without Food.
Ithaca, Neb.. Nov. 14.—A fire broke
out at 7 o'clock this evening and the
business portion of this city burned to
the ground. The lumber yard and
office, Graham's drug store, the general
store of U. P. Lapp and Wagner
& Schroder, Smith's implement
house, together with two dwellings,
were detroyed. The total loss
estimated at #25,000; insurance, $5,000.
Several persons were injured by an ex
plosion of gunpowder in the stores, and
glass in the buildings across the street
was shattered. There is no store in
Ithaca tonight, and the citizens are
without food. The fire originated in
the drug store, but how is not known.
A strong south wind drove the blaze
rapidly northward, and left no lime to
save the contents of the various build
ings.

More Charges Regarding Election
of lw.» Democrats in Kansas

Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 14.—The

tinue today the publication of sensa
tional articles charging the election of
.). 11. Hem merman. Dem., for prosecut
ing attorney, an.t J. B. Keshlear, Dem.,

of which the paper alleges a number of
votes, sufficient lo chance the result,
wer« Jieliberatcly transferred from the
column occupied by Jamison, Rep., to
that of Bemmerman. Attentiou is
raJ|eu to the fact that for all other
candidates excepting Sloan (Rep.) for
county marshal, the official vote Uiliea
exactly with the vole announced by pre
ciuets by the recorder of votes election

that the changes, like Bemmerman's,

DRUGGIST WILGOX.

Utmost fear and Terror.
Danger and Death Follow Us Every
Step We Take.
Too many people become insane. Too
many drop dead. Too many become
paralyzed. The papers are constantly
recording such cases, and even then
ouly a small proportion ever reach the
public. It is enough to frighten any
body; and what does it mean?
It Mieans that people overwork, over
strain and weaken their nerves, their
heart, their brain, and then they suffer
the terrible, but natural consequences.
Do you belong to this class? If so, look
to your health. Read the warning
words of E. T. Wilcox, Esq., a well
known druggist, residiug at Ticonder
oga, N. V.:
"I have used Dr. Greene's Neryura
blood and nerve remedy for some time..
I have sold all kinds of proprietary
rnedicin«s in our drug store, and know
what is said about them all.
"Whenever 1 feel nervous and run
down. 1 use Dr. Greene's Nervura and
it does the business every time. I think
it the best medicine, and it cerlainlj is
the best seller.
"1 am now usini; it myself.
B. T. WILCOX, ESQ.
"Of course I have the choice of all
medicines sold in our store, and from
my own personal experience, and re
ports of others. 1 am perfectly satisfied
that Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and
nerve remedy is the best."
Mr. VVilcox has devoted his life en
tirely to the drug business, and when a
man so experienced in medicines is sat
isfied that there is nothing in tlte world
so good as Dr. Greene's Nervura blood
and nerve remedy, it is ihe strongest
possible recommendation. Everybody
who takes it speaks just as highly of it.
It makes strong nerves and builds up
the worn-out and run-down system. It
prevents insanity, paralysis, and pro
motes long life.
The reason why this great curative
has had so phenomenal a success is be
cause it is not a patent medicine, but
the prescription of the most successful
living specialist in cuiing nervous and
chronic diseases, Dr. Greene, of 35 West
14th St., New York City, wno stands
ready at al! times to answer for the ac
tion of his medicine.
He has the largest practice In the
world, and this grand medical discovery
is the result of his vast experience. The
great reputation of Dr. Greene is a
guarantee that his medicine will cure,
and the fact that he can be consulted
by any one, at any time, free of charge,
personally or by letter, gives absolute
assurance of the beneficial action of
this wonderful medicine.
THE CRADIiK'S DECLINE.
The Old-Fashioned Article Seems
to Be Out of Date.
Upholsterer.
"The other day," said an acquaint
ance, "I wanted an ordinary, common
cradle, liKe the cradles of thirty years
ago. and would you believe it, "l hunted
the whole city before I could find any
thing at all. There were rockers and
bassinets galore, and all kinds of de
vices, but the old-time cradle seems to
have gone entirely out of use.
It is a singular fact, but it appears to
be true, that the cradle has lost its grip;
singular, inasmuch as it has occupleda
warm and perpetual field of usefulness
for many centuries. The cradles of the
GreeKs and Romans were of various
shapes: the infant Hermes is repre
sented in one formed like a shoe. They
were occasionally made of basket work,
sometimes with handles, and could be
suspended by ropes. Infants were
rocked and swung to sleep by their
nurses, and had their rattles, even as
modern babies.
Destroyed Its Own Identity.
New York Herald.
One step from the sublime to the ridic
ulous. This is an old truism. It might
be said also that comedy and tragedy
are very near to each other. At least,
so argued that prince of good fellows,
Nat Goodwin.
Seated in Delmonico's cafe one day
recently, Goodwin was entertaining a
number of friends with personal rem
iniscences of a European trip. In a de
lightfully ingenuous manner he made
himself the butt iv each story, and con
vulsed liia auditors with laughter.
Finally he said: "1 was walking
down street the other day—that is. I
was or another fellow was, it doesn't
make any difference—you don't want to
spoil a story on technicalities. Any
how, 1 or the other fellow was walking
down street and chanced to pass an ex*
press office.
•'The expressman was loading lm

•'Where's he going?" asked the driver.

'•'Don't know?'
" 'Naw.'
" 'Why the don't you kuow?'
"'Now. don't get previous,'said the
forwarding agent. *1 don't know an' it
ilon't know an' tiobody knows. It's et
up its tag, that's the reason."'
ilis auditors laughed, but Goodwin
drew a long face, "I say it's pathetic."
he remarked. "Think of the position
of that doir. In a thoughtless moment
he destroyed his own identity, it's a
tragedy iv real life."

Threatens to End With Lynch
ing. ' ,' . -
Lebaxox, Ind.. Nov. 14.—A lynching
party is looked for in this city tonight
or tomorrow. At Zionsville last night
Joseph Conrad shot and fatally wounded
John Martz, oire of the leading citizens
of tht» county. Conrad had been paying
attention to Mrs. Martha While, a
widow. Mart/, had occasion to call on
her several tunes during the past week
on account of a real estate deal between
them. Conrad became insanely jealous,
and last night, meeting Martz on
the street, shot him down. He
was arrested soon after and brought to
Lebanon by a circuitous route to avoid
a party of Martz's friends who were
waiting on the regular road prepared to
lynch him. The crowd finally returned
to Zionsville and notified Mrs. White,
about whom some disagreeable stories
have been, told, to leave town within
forty-eight hours under penalty of be
ing blown up by dynamite. Tonight it
is reported that a crowd of 200 or 300
tuen is gathering with the intention of
coming to Lebanon to lynch Conrad.
Up to a late hour they have not, how
ever, been heard from.

curred on Mrs. W. I. York's plantation,
about four miles from Miliington, last

ROSEBEIIY AND TUB LOKDS.
Premier's Attitude Towards the
Upper House Discussed.
LOUTOOK, Nov. 15.—Speaking at Glas
gow last night, Lord Rosebery stated
that the Liberal programme would iu
ctude Scotch and Welsh disestablish
ment and local vote. He declared that
he was not a single chamber man, but
that he did not despair of solving the
problem which America, France and
Hungary had solved to the perfect
satisfaction of their respective people.
Lord Rosebery's refereuce to the
house of lords is variously interpreted.
The Times in a leader says it thinks it
indicates that nothing will be done prior
to hu apueal to the country.
The Daily News says that the speech
disposes altogether of the idle rumor
that the government intends to dissolve
parliament at an early date.
Tiie Graphic approves of Lord Ross
bery's suggested reform of tbe house of
lords, but is suspicious of his intentions
while the terms of the resoltuton that
will deal with the matter are undis
closed.
